Whew whew whew.

After bouts of procrastination and laziness, my essay for the RCS Essay Writing Competition is completed! I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeee~!


I wanted to blog about something I was :@ about. But then I decided not to, and wait, and see what happens :). Hopefully, it turns out better soon. If not…. Whack you.

Love Laughs at Death

Love is enough. We do not ask to hear

The well loved voice, nor do we seek to see

The angel form. Sufficient for the heart

Faith, and the peace that heals its agony.

Love waits unchanged through all the changing years

Fed by the streams of living memory.

Love laughs at death. For death is but a dream

From which we wake to immortality.

-May 28th entry of the Bedside book, by Patience Strong


I find this very beautiful and challenging. She speaks of love as a dear acquaintance that is always there, having faith that it is there.

Lord to give you our praise….




…that’s what we came here for!

If only we’d go to church with the purpose of giving God praise. But nooooo, we need friends, some entertainment, good music, friendly people, pretty location,…..

Even then, we struggle to give God what he deserves. We are such a distracted people. Sometimes I think we all need to be locked in a room where there is nothing, even stray thoughts.

Oh, when shall our thoughts truly be centred around God, focused; not refracted around.


A tip on typography:-

Don’t use too many ellipses (…), it clogs up page and makes reading hard.

Really, please!

Time for a makeover! :)

Let’s just say there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and emo posts shall no longer come, if you consider the posts below emo. Haha :)


The Easter Event was, to me, great :). There may be some hitches here and there, but it was okay. Even though I wanted to smack some people (they, in my defence, talked!), it was fine.

For once, I received answers :). I’m grateful, amazed, and awed. It’s almost as if I was in a movie, where everything was planned and scripted, except that, then, it wasn’t scripted, but planned :).


My redeemer lives!

I’m troubled.

I’m rather unhappy, unsatisfied, about the way things are. I see my friends. I weep for them. Why stay the way they are, stuck, uninterested, chasing worldly pursuits; when they can acquire the joy that Jesus is? Maybe ignorance is bliss.

Why aren’t they excited about Jesus? Why aren’t they putting Jesus in His rightful place in their hearts? Why isn’t Jesus the centre?

This isn’t the first time I felt this. Is this God’s calling for me? Is this my burden? To bring about a fresh renewal, a fresh revival, a fresh reverence for the Lord, to the generation? Everything else seems of less importance.

But I’m young. Why would they listen? The Bible says that none is ever too young, nor too old… Yet, I fear. Where is my trust, my faith, when I need it most? Where is this courage? Why should I fear? If God wants revival to come, it will come. In torrents, in floods.

Yet, what am I doing here?

Flawed Idea. An Idea Nonetheless.

I can only think of a reason that applies to me to not have a girl that I’m infatuated with. It came rather suddenly. Anyway here it is.

In my opinion, we have a fixed capacity in our hearts (how, then, can it overflow?). And if we keep putting things into it, you’ll soon have to kick some out, or, rather, it goes away on it’s own.

With that opinion in mind, if I invite a person, in particular, a girl into my heart, and let her dominate it, and as girls as you know them, need a large amount of space. And this large space is further enlarged because guys, as we know them, are filled with longings, longing for said girl to be closer to them, longing for her to reciprocate their “love” (as they call it). So they focus upon this girl, thinking of her, all the time. And once the mind has set itself bent on thinking over something, and being inclined to like it, will slowly, but surely, find more merits and goodness in her, quirks and attitudes that the heart seems to like. So, they slowly, “fall in love”.

Now, with a girl taking up so much of my thoughts and space in my heart, I would be rather romantic, air-headed, and generally annoying to others. I would not like that. Nor would I like to have what I can truly have, God, be pushed out of my heart by my own desire. Because, it is by my own will to focus my thoughts upon that girl, and be occupied with it.

Being in a mutual relationship will also force me to think of the partner, doing things that will make her happy, and that will contribute to the relationship. Said partner will also need to be pleased in many aspects. This, surely, will take up a huge amount of time, energy and effort. 3 things I find rather lacking in the life of a student. Why waste it on someone that most probably won’t be my wife (far-sighted, much. Haha :p), anyway? Breaking off the relationship and being “just friends” would mean awkward moments alone, stilted conversation, and distance that would not happen if the relationship hadn’t started.

Really, need I continue? :P

Anyway, in conclusion, my heart is small, but I’d choose to house God in it, than a girl. How would I break off a relationship with God, anyway? And even if I do (God forbid!), God would be ever-willing to accept me. He’d even chase after me :).
