Just Drive

Some of my friends from across the border pop over for dinner with us. It has been really enjoyable. The two hours wait for them was worth it. Yah, you read me correctly. We waited 2 hours for them at the dinner place because the drivers lost their ways.

There were two cars, so they offered to drive everyone back. One car follow the other so we'll stick together. I was in the car behind. As usual, I hardly notice the route until the drivers missed one crucial turn and that would lead us really far away.

It was then that we realised, the drivers really don't know the ways at all. They were just driving along and "trying their luck" Pengz!!!!!!!! couldn't believe our ears.

Now that explains their lateness earlier. When they said they lost their ways, they really did lost their ways.

Listening Room

Was very much comforted by Psalms 107 and Psalms 108 this morning. I'm reminded how simple life really is. All it takes is simply to listen and obey. Obedience comes with great rewards........ far beyond what one can imagine.

Reaching For The Star

I dun want to talk about it, but just a little disappointed.

Nonetheless, no matter how the wind sets me back, I'll keep sailing ahead.

Not matter what, I'll keep reaching for that dream. Someday, I'll be there.

And yes, I'll remember to enjoy the process...................

Boon Two wrote about something close to my heart in her latest entry, about how people come in and out of our lives. For us city dwellers, it's impossible to keep in touch with everyone because we meet so many people everyday, so at times, we just let them slip by.

However, like she said, there's aways a sense of lost as we let acquaintances fade quietly, because there are always people whom we like to know better..................

Her entry got me rather stirred emotionally. I'm the kind who store lots of memories, even a brief but lovely moment is worth remembering. As life move us on and bring us to different places, the common memories are perhaps the only things that still bind us together.

Yes, and that's why, like her, I hate saying goodbye. For her, she chose not to say goodbye when it's time to part. For me, I really would prefer not to part.

Valuable Quote

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Kopi and Teh

These couple of days, I kept saying Kopi-O when I actually meant Teh-O...... very duh right!!!

EL and me were out for dinner at a Hong Kong Cafe. I wanted Teh-O but I said kopi-O instead. EL was rather shocked:

EL: KOPI-O??? You dun drink kopi-O one mah???

Me: Who say I dun :P

EL: Only I drink Kopi-O, I've never seen you drinking that!!!

Thanks to her reminder, I realized my mistake in time and got my teh-O happily.

This morning, I went to the Kopitium and asked for Kopi-O again...... double DUH lor.....

Next thing I realized, the person at the store handed me a glass of black coffee............

Gosh, I took two sips and left the rest untouched........... bleah :P

The sotong-nism is getting more serious

Dreams Come True

Got an encouraging sms from a dear friend. She said the fact that I'm stepping closer to my dream inspires her to move towards hers.

Her sms inspires me to blog about this.

Lately, I'm taking huge steps to make changes. Sometimes, we have to move backward slightly in order to move forward. Wonder if you have ever flown a kite. To make it fly high, you can't hold on too tightly. You've got to let go slightly every now and then, so that it can harness the force of the wind to reach higher.

In many ways, this is also true about realizing our dreams. The more we cling on hard, the more we find ourselves jogging on the spot. Sometimes, we just have to let go slightly, and move along with the right opportunities.

Everything has a perfect timing. If things hasn't happen yet, that's because you're still in preparation.

I'm Proud Of My Clone

Since I'm online, might as well entertain myself by searching the web for some names.

I keyed in my own dialect name, apparently, someone who has the same name as me is kind of famous. Duh............... :P

I keyed in my clone's name and viola...... woo............ she's famous, her name appears in the search engine, for great things she has done. Cool............

Hee.......... just in the mood for a bit of wu liao stuff

Obedience, Faith and Waiting

All that energy spent rebelling and fighting for freedom, I've finally discovered the liberation obedience brings. Things may not always go the way I want, but they're definitely for the best.

Faith sometimes bring us to do the most irrational stuff, things which go against logic, which human understanding can't quite figure. Yet, it'll bring us to higher grounds, to places beyond one's imagination. Faith is powerful, because faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains.

The more we exercise faith, the stronger it becomes.

Obedience, faith and waiting............... I find waiting the most difficult.

I'm one of those super impatient kind, sometimes, I just want to snap my fingers and expect things to be nicely set right before me. I want to have things settled immediately.......... right away.

But being too impatient sometimes make me move in circles.......... and bring me back to where I started............

I'm learning how to wait........................... because occasionally, that is necessary.
