You are forever in my life.

Was playing the guitar, going through chord progressions for the key of G and suddenly played this song. Haha. Guess I'll have it posted here la.

You are forever in my life
You see me through the season
Cover me with Your hands
And Lead me in Your righteousness

And I look to You
And I wait on You

I'll sing to You, Lord a hymn of love
For Your faithfulness to me
I'm carried in everlasting arms
You'll never let me go
Through It all

*sings joyfully and "trying" to play skillfully.

Medical Screening

This morning, woke up at 9am, terus go to DRS Young, Newton & Rakan-rakan to get a body screening. Before that, went to Menara ExxonMobil to collect my parcel (inside got all those borang-borang pekerjaan and stuffs) and then only went to the clinic. Reach there around 10am and was quite anxious (the last time I went was just urine test, drug test only, now whole body).

First test: After filling those forms, first test: Urine. Had to go to the toilet and pee, and someone behind me watching me pee... The uncle was telling me this, "If you're working in offshore, they will stand in front of you and see you pee. This is considered okay already." And I replied, "Oh... I see I see, but it's arkward because you're standing behind me..." And I laughed. LOL

Second test: After that, I was asked to sit down on a chair and he tied my right arm with a band. He took out a syringe and applied alcohol on my arm. He asked me not to look and he poke the needle in. I paling takut blood test... hahaha. Anyway, it was over around 30 seconds. After that, he explained to me why do this, why do that and ask me to sign the consent form.

Third test: My height was taken, my weight was taken, and my eyesight was tested too.

Fourth test: ECG, a nurse sapu some gel on both of my legs, my wrists, my chest. Then she put on some weird looking machine-like-thingy to check my ECG.

Fifth test: I was asked to inhale and blow into an inhaler-like thingy. To test my lungs. Man, it was hard... got technique somemore... They need 3 blows and if not mistaken, I think I made like 20 blows to get a perfect 3 blow...

Sixth test: I was asked to enter a sound room thingy to test my hearing. Could hardly hear super low noises on my left ear. The nurse say I "ngam-ngam" pass and ask me to take care of my ears...

Seventh test: Final test, was asked into a doctor's room, the doctor signs all the tests and checked my heartbeat + bloodpressure. After that, kau tim.

If everytime you work also need to do all these screening... I would rather stick with just one company and work my way up the corporate ladder...

February 14th

Wooo, Valentine's! Lotz of love today, but seems like most people only celebrate their love for one another on today, which I think it's sad la. Should celebrate everyday right, instead of just one particular day?

Nothing much, just felt like posting some thoughts only.

Hoc Mun, blessed birthday!

Malam Muzikal Krismas 2009

My third MK.

It was a blast yesterday, eventhough it started a bit blurry, but it ended gracefully. Haha. I was actually quite tired yesterday, in the sense that I'm there at 10am, went back to take a bath around 4.30pm and then reach there by 5.15pm. Overall, I thank God that He has brought me thru, eventhough it was a bit kaku for me to be onstage with my acoustic to play and sing at the same time (it was actually my first time, for those who do not believe it... I was like, "Oh, so this is the kind of feeling of being a worship leader la... I see I see...").

Special thanks to all the PERKEBians and the sound engineers and especially my awesome God for helping in this year's MK!

God bless!

23.

Today is my birthday and just wanna take this opportunity to say thanks to all my friends who have smsed me or even tried to call me. Sorry you didn't get any reply from me because I've switched off my handphone :P

Edited:
Was on my way to the barber just now (but the barber shop didn't open), and on the way there, I forgot to give thanks to God, so here goes.

Father,
Thank You for 23... or rather 22... years of life that You have given to me so far. Thank You for always being faithful to me eventhough at times I'm not faithful to You. Thank You for always being there for me through ups and downs. Thank You for all the people that you have put in my life, all the time that has been invested in me, all the experiences that I've gained from them. Thank You for Your grace, that is sufficient for me. Thank You for putting me into troubles and carrying me out of those troubles. Thank You for what You have done and what You are going to do in me. I love You and I am excited with the things that You are going to do in my life.

God bless! :D

Church hopping?

Just woke up and was thinking of something regarding church-hopping.

Disclaimer: I'm not judging anyone here, I just feel like writing about it and see what's your say about church-hopping.

Definition (according to me la): Christians who go from one church to another finding for the "best" church, a church that fulfills his/her standards.

So... let's say church-hopper A goes from one church to one church, and since church 1, A said that he/she wants to serve there (or maybe haven't serve yet), but not long later (around 1/2 years), A goes to another church and serves there (or maybe haven't serve yet), not long later, another church, and the cycle continues.

My question is:

1. Is there a "best" church out there? Aren't all churches' focus is the same, to serve the same God, the same Lord, the same Father (1 Corinthians 12:4-6) ? I thought we are call to be faithful in whichever church we're landed in (to me, a church that I can grow in, but sometimes you'll feel that you'll be stagnant)? I believe every church goes through a season, ups and downs, and I believe in staying there and help out as much as I can, because I believe that the church belongs to God, belongs to Jesus Christ and belongs to the Holy Spirit. I believe God the Father would do and will do something about it because it is His church after all.

2. In your opinion, why there are some Christians church-hop? I kinda like "don't understand" why because there are some of my friends who go from one church to another, gungho about it, and then later no news already. When I ask them after a while, they'll tell me they are serving in a different church and all. I believe there are a lot of denominations and denominations are good, in a sense that it caters to every Christian. But what about a church-hopper that hops from one church to another and those churches belong to the same denomination?

Comments are welcomed! :)

God... why?

Dear God,

I don't understand why certain people say things that they think it will make them sound super duper spiritual but actually their spiritual life is in doubt? I don't understand why some people can say random things and claim that it's from You? I don't understand why certain people claim that they hear from You?

I doubt... I seriously doubt.

God, help my unbelief.

Give me a new mind and a new heart, Lord.

I'm desperate for You.
