Count it all joy!

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you're faced with various trials
My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways.
(GOD'S WORD Translation 1995)
James 1:2
Oh yes, I'm very happy.

What you see when you blogsurf

Got this off Hannah Yeoh's blog in the comments section of the post "Addressing the future leaders of our country" by an anonymous. I personally find the second last sentence rather amusing apart from the fact that Hannah's a Christian.

The comment starts here:

Maybe, someday, I would like to return to Malaysia to help....

But how can I, after all the education I have and hopes my parents have on me, come back to Malaysia to work when the situation there is much worse, dangerous, discriminatory and difficult?

There is also the matter of pushing on with a career which is never easy in Malaysia especially when you are ethnically chinese, work honestly and will always have to forge your way through a corrupt, discriminatory, injudicious society.

I admire your strength. I wish I have that but since I don't, the next thing I can do is support someone who does - you! =)

Add oil! When I come back to Malaysia, I will lend a hand in your efforts to make a better Subang Jaya, then a better Malaysia.

God bless you, Allah bless you, May Buddha always be around to teach you and may all the Taoist and Hindu Gods watch over you.

I pray for a better Malaysia.


Another thing. I didn't know Hannah runs on oil.

I wanted to post this on Facebook, but I'm afraid I'll get unpleasant replies. So, I decided to post it up here. Safer, I think (or hope).

Here goes:

Out of total randomness and lack of tolerance for not being helpful since I'm from HELP too, I would like to share my 2 cents worth.

I've observed after slightly more than a year at wisma HELP that A LOT of people (most of them) pressed the 'door open' button in the lift whenever there're people walking into the lift. Well, guess what folks? YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANYMORE. NO. YOU DON'T HAVE TO IN THE FIRST PLACE. BECAUSE THE LIFT HAS A SENSOR. IT CAN DETECT ANYTHING THAT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE LIFT. I'm talking about when you're in the lift, not when you want to get into the lift. Please don't get me wrong. You still have to press the 'up' and 'down' button to open the lift. LOL.

If you don't believe me, try putting your leg at the door of the lift when it's about to close. I'm sure it won't close on you :) BUT... REMEMBER. THE SENSOR CAN ONLY SENSE SOMETHING THAT IS VERY NEAR THE DOOR. SO IF YOU HAPPEN TO SEE SOMEONE RUSHING TO THE LIFT AND IS AT A DISTANCE, YOU MIGHT WANNA PRESS THE BUTTON.

However, I can't guarantee the same thing if the lift is not working. So, do it at your own risk. I apologise if I have offended anyone in particular with this note. (The title above wasn't intentional, it was on purpose).

Your helpful fellow HELPer,

Can you feel the pressure?

I'm stressed. Yes, it's the time of the year for the appearance of that word again. It comes yearly if you don't already know. I'm motivating myself everyday to study harder. Coming to think of it, I think the thought of going to a good university next year is already motivating me to study. I don't have to tell myself what to do. It's like planned out. Every morning I wake up and plan the purpose of my life. Every activity I plan to do is all in my head. What do you think about that? Sounds crazy, doesn't it? Yeah, you can call me crazy or nerd or kiasu or whatever word that is. I'm determined to be that word for as long as I'm confident I can get into a good university. I don't have much confidence but then again, never try never know. Study, study, study. That's all I can think of right now. I have come to some sort of a conclusion after sitting for exams for the past 13 years that I'm not much of a smart student. I would say, I'm above average but not up to the mark expected. Sadly, people have high expectations on me. I look like I study alot in front of them but coming to answering questions, I totally suck at it. Let's just say I like studying but not taking exams. My perception on taking exams changed after joining uni. I used to like sitting for exams when I was in school. Maybe because I didn't do too badly in them:) Now, it's the other way round. Everything has changed ever since I joined uni. Nothing comes easy anymore. Sigh. I miss high school. How I wish all exams were open-book exams. Wouldn't that be fun?

Now the pressure's on me. It's either I get it or I don't. What do you think? Can you help me?

Where We Belong

There is no height or depth
Neither life nor death
That can take me from all that I find
Here now in Your Glory Lord

No other powers or love
The things of now or to come
There's nothing on earth in this life
That could ever separate us Lord

Your Love is never ending
To your hands we surrender
Where all our sins are washed away
Your Grace beyond reason
Has paid for our freedom
We're made alive in You

We run to Your Throne
Where we belong
Every heart will sing
That Jesus is Lord
Casting all else aside
For the joy of our Christ
Let Your Glory fall
Our hearts are filled with Your Fire

No other powers or love
The things of now or to come
There's nothing on earth in this life
That could ever separate us Lord
