Singapore Trip

It was during last month's airfare sales that mother decided she wanted to go to Singapore to visit my auntie and family. And she insisted that I shall accompany her there. Thus, I checked the flight online and managed to get very cheap flight tickets for direct Pg-Sg flight to Singapore. And on 6th-9th June, mom, me, another auntie and her son visited Singapore after much hesitation due to the outbreak of A(H1N1) virus.

It was not really a holiday trip but rather to visit my uncle who got stroke not long after our wedding. Though it was more of sisters catching-up reunion, we still managed to spend some time visiting a few tourist spots in Singapore. The Singapore Flyer (claimed to be the world's largest observation wheel), the Jurong bird park and the science centre are among some of the places we visited. As one of my aunties is looking for branded bags like LV, Burberry or Coach, we went for shopping in a few departmental stores too.

Share with you some of the pics we took at the Singapore Flyer.

Stress, stress, stress...

Ten more days before the examination takes place. I am actually quite stressed up with this upcoming entry test. There is no format given, no scope given except it's bible knowledge, no hints on whether it would be T&F, multiple choices, short essays, fill in the blanks or long essays.

To make things worse, the test will be carried out in mandarin. With my limited vocabs in mandarin, there is no different whether it would be typing or hand-writing. If it is typing, I would definitely spend a lot of time in spelling my pinyin. If it is hand written, I would then spend a lot of time pondering on how to write those words out.

I am in fact ready to accept the reality even if I fail this test. But still... I am stressed up!

On Having Children

It is so natural that friends start asking when we are going to have our own kids after we got married. And normally, I do not know how to answer. In fact, I am torn when it comes to having our own children. There are times when I'm broody. That would come when I see a cute baby in a stroller, a family of four taking dinner together, or a little boy playing soccer with his dad. That was the time my maternal instinct came so strong that I would feel a surge of longing for our own kid.

But there are a lot more times where I dont want children. When they are screaming, yelling, crying and fretting for goodness-knows-what. I got annoyed very easily by that. See, for me, I dont know what to do with kids. I dont have a single idea how to make them occupied or make them laugh. I would just look at them and go " Err.. what do you want me to do?" My husband's great with kids. He knows how to play with them and make them laugh. He knows how to communicate with them even though he doesnt have any clue of the baby talk. He is good in using different approaches to discipline the kids.

Having said that, I am not totally resist from having children. Knowing that there are a lot of couples hunger for their own kids but unable to have. In the contrary, there are much people who play a fool and ended up with the 'unwanted' kids. I would be grateful to have our own kids. But as for now, due to much uncertainties that we are facing, I guess it's not the right timing yet. However, we would happily accept whatever that comes knowing that there is nothing which is out of control.

Loss and Gain

What am I going to do for the next few years? That's the question that has been keeping my brain working for the past few months. In fact, I have been cracking my head for a while and finally came out with a few good ideas. Immediately I started to analyse the pros and cons of those ideas that I have came out with and even started writing down in a proper plan with the so-called SWOT analysis in management term.

However, as soon as I pressed the 'go' button, things came unexpectedly. Someone called me up for a different offer... That's when I pull myself back a bit to think if my idea is workable. And immediately the next morning, an email flown to my husband's inbox urging me to take up another option which would benefit our future ministry tremendously. Things did not stop it here. At that particular night, an email article came straight hitting me to the face on my ignorance to the calling. In reality, I am so kia-su that I dont dare to take up the challenge. However, that article has shown me the path that I should take in leading me to where I should be in the future. Minutes after reading the article, another email came in the inbox asking me to seriously consider of taking up the challenge.

I seriously know that taking up the challenge would be the best option. In fact, that's what I hope to do as well. But there are still many things that's worrying me despite it being the best option among all. After much discussion with hubz, we finally mutually agreed on taking up the challenge and supporting each other along the way...

And the decision is only the beginning of this path. we foreseen gazillion of problems and decisions are waiting for us along the way.

Jesus Christ Is Risen Today!

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!

Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!

But the pains which He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation hath procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He’s king, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as His love, Alleluia!
Praise Him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!

Due to some reasons I would need to translate my english version of resume into mandarin version. Mind you, not only to simplified chinese but to traditional chinese. What a painful experience I had! It took me 2 days just to complete the translation with the help of google translate. However, through this task I manage to learn more proper chinese sentences which is kind of different from the way we speak to each other.

Really hope that my effort will not be in vain but would produce some results in the days to come...
