Have been traveling a lot lately. Right after the week of KKB rotation, i went Bukit Selesa for CF retreat. Spent 3 days 2 night there planning the new year programmes and so on...This trip has allowed me to know a lot of people whom i seldom talked to in CF. It's so encouraging when u mixed around with these people because of their big heart to serve the Lord in IMU. All of us have the similar vision, i.e TO SHINE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD IN IMU. All the praises and honours are unto our heavenly Father alone...Dear peeps, let us work hand in hand to bring glory for His kingdom....:]
Paintball @ Subang
Last Wednesday, some of the group B ppl went and played paintball! As a begginner, i was kinda worried wat will happen to us. This was because most of the experienced players had warned us about the injuries we might get, for instance, bruises, fainting if the pallet hit the carotid pulse, blindness and so on.....
Overall, there are 13 of us took up the challenge! So, how we divided ourselves into 2 teams?
1st Team: Lydia, Lydia's BF, Su Wen, Valene, Yee Pei, Angelene, Min and Thuan Tzhen
2nd Team: Aditya, Raymond, William, Shin Ann and Chun Seng
Though 1st team outnumbered 2nd team, we were still defeated by them easily! Expert like Aditya could kill around 3 of the girls at one goal! We were definitely not their opponents especially when the 2nd team had so many agressive ppl! There is no where we could win them! i could still remember how i was attacked by William when he failed to shoot me at a far distance. Out of the sudden he appeared right above of me and shoot me on my knee cap. When i saw him, i was terrified and screamed! Luckily the pellet didn't hit my head, if not, i wil hav a mini mountain on my head by now. Hehe.... However, the blue black on my knee cap is very painful too! :(
For 2 games continously, we lost to the 2nd team! But the spirit to win never faded. No matter wat, we must at least win one game!!! So at the final game, we no longer wanna be coward and chicken out. We decided to make a daring move and attack them!True enough, we managed to get rid of the hard core killers one by one. When ah Pei finally killed the last enemy, the satisfaction in us were great! We were jumping with joy as though we had won a war! In short, paintball is fun but be ready to get hurt! The pellets are blind, u'll never know which part of your body will be attacked!

Satay trip @ Kajang
Hmm, everyone shud know that Kajang is famous for their satay! Thanks to Esther who has brought us(Michelle, Darryl and me) to the best satay in town! There are a lot of different satays available. Eg, chicken, mutton, duck ,fish and beef! No doubt they tasted equally GOOD! This gathering was actually a farewell dinner for Michelle and Esther! They are flying off to Australia to further their studies. I met both of them when i was volunteering in Doulos last year. They both have a humble heart to serve the Lord! All the best in you future endeavours friends...Keep walking faithfully with the Lord! He'll always be there for you.....Will miss you all much..:)

Flood relief work @ Skudai, Johor
Last Friday, Crz asked Denise, Li Jun and me whether we want to go Johor to help out in the relief work at Johor because his church(DUMC) has been organising trips there to help in cleaning up the place and distributing old clothes etc.. Without hesitation, all of us decided to take up the challenge and go to have a look! It was a 2 days 1 night trip. We were to reach DUMC at 5.30am on Sat. but since DUMC is quite far from vista, we(Crz, Denise, Li Jun, Kenneth and me) had to go at 4.30am. We were so sleepy but the fire to help the victims was still burning in us!
Once we arrived Skudai,the local church pastor, Pastor Thomas welcomed us warmly . He told us the condition there and brought us to Kampung Laut which was affected by the flood most! It really shocked us because the houses were all torn off and filled with thick yellowish mud with rubbish, debris, dead animals...! Though the water has subsided, we were still requested to wear our boots to walk in the mud. It will take them centuries for them to clean their houses. Once we were briefed we got into our job respectively! It's sad when u listened to their stories. They have lost their household and left nothing. I myself cant imagine wat will happen to me if i were in their shoes!
I'm glad i came to see myself how terrible the victims are going through. It's totally different from wat the newspapers has been reported daily. It's 100 times worst than i could imagine!!! Now, I come, i see, i LOVE.
1 John 4:19- We love because God first loved us.
wasSup Doc : Dear Lord, i pray that You'll pour your mercy upon them. I pray that the rain will stop and no more 3rd attack! I also pray Your mighty hands will touch more hearts to visit the place and help them. May You show your love through the people volunteering there. In Jesus name, Amen.....
As a wrap up, today was the last day of my(Group B) rotation postings. So we decided to take a class picture before we see each other again during respi...all of us were so EMO!!But actually it's just 1 week later and our kIlLing Sem 3 is commencing....:[
We are the rock stars of tomorrow!!
