Big Game

Hey peeps! How're ya going? I've been pretty busy lately, i told you why. Ok, it's Friday morning. I'll tell you about today's "Big Game. As you already know, i am in the school's soccer team. But we are rather crappy. lolz... Our captain, Johnny, organised a game for us. Against the Year 10 soccer team. -.-" Argh, i'm so nervous because i really want to shine. All the players on the field have good standards and i am pressured to perform. lolz... I reckon we'll get our butts kicked to the moon! And.... I'll tell you more about it after i get back from the moon =)

Oh yea, as i've already told ya, my dad bought FIFA 2005 for my sis and i. Whoa, my sis has become a full-on pro at it! She has never lost a single game -.-""""" This is the first time that she has beaten me in a computer game. Guess my record. Played 12, Won 6 Drawn 4 Lost 1. Is that miserable or what?!?!??! lol! Oh yea, talk about the game. It's an awesome game. For all those soccer fans out there, GO GET IT! It's not really fun if you don't like losing. However, it is extremely realistic. It's as realistic as it can get. The opponent's defence is as hard as a iron rock, there's no way you're gonna trash them. It was possible in FIFA 2003, but not anymore! Troy, Daryl and Justin get it ASAP! Buy the original copy so that i can play online with you dudes.

Alright, i gtg for school now. Cyas!

Goodbye Nai!

Hey peeps! I'm feeling a little down today. lolz...sounds kindda wierd eh? Isaac? Feeling down? Well, there are many reasons. The first is that my grandmum left for Singapore this afternoon and i am already beginning to miss her. She's so old, i can't stop worrying about her welfare. Haiz..Hope she has a good time back in SG. I have 52 days to go before i will be able to see her again. I will be missing her fabulous cooking. Mum and i will be taking over her cooking duties. Looks like i won't be having good meals for a fairly long time.

The second reason is because of work, work and MORE work. Guess how many assignments i received today? 6 PROJECTS!!!!!!! I don't believe it. And when i say projects, i mean the full-on assessments that take days to do. Haiz... Geography, History, English, Software Design, Art, German. I don't even know where to start.

The third reason is because, i've got a soccer competition coming up. Guess you already know about it, because i posted it last week. I am the captain of my team. And i simply have to win the competition. The winning team will be stated in front of the ENTIRE school! COOL! and the captain of the team gets to go up on stage to collect the cup! Is that awesome or what? That's my dream though. Praying that i will.

There was an incident in school that totally freaked me out. Ya know, Aussies are a little insane. There is a event every year for the Year 12 students(JC2) to celebrate after their General Papers and Exams. This event is called the "Milk Run". It totally disgusted me. What happens is, the participants will have to bottom 1 litre of milk and lemon juice and they will run for 80metres. That is considered as 1 lap. They will have to drink another litre of milk and lemon before running the next 80 metres. Well, that's nothing much. BUT, if you are a chemistry pro, you will know that there is some funny chemical reaction between milk and lemon juice which causes much irritating in the stomach before forcing it's way out. In other words, every participant in the run will eventually puke. In addition to that, they drank milk that was dyed either red,green,blue or yellow (Depending on their house colours). It really digusted me when i saw the students with horrid faces and streams of leftover milk drooling down the sides of their mouths. Then, once in a while, a student will stop in his tracks, look around, go "****" and puke
"Coloured" vomit.

Lolz...i gtg now. Cyas!

Hi peeps! Or should i say, hi Char. I think my blog is hitting an all time high of 1 hit a day. Please congratulate me by TAGGING! lol.. Alright, i'll do a quick post just before i go to school. I'm extremely glad that Bryan, Char, Joce and Tab(esp. my sis) remembered my B-day! Thanks! You guys rock!

I think it's the first time i'm having a B-day that's on a school day. And, my dad was coming home on that same day, at 4.30 am. So, i decided to accompany my mum in picking my dad up. I woke up at 3am and i couldn't go back to sleep. Don't know why. I just killed time by lying on my bed and thinking about stuff. When it was 4.45 am, we left for the airport. My dad was in "great shape", i was so glad to be able see him after a whole month! We rushed back home because i still had a full day ahead. I went to school in the morning, did lots of work, came back home.

My dad had brought back LOTS of stuff. A MP3 player, Delicious snacks, Dried food, some letters(We received so few this time =( ) AND FIFA 2005!!!!!!!! I couldn't wait to get my hands on that game. He had bought it back in SG for about 50 bucks. I was so excited that i really couldn't wait to play it. However, the computer was down.

My dad was repairing the computer because it had some problems starting up. He opened the CPU box and made sure everything was alright. However, the CPU still couldn't start up. I was like, Oh No! I remembered something. I told my dad where the prob could have been(Because i was the one that tempered with the CPU before it got spoiled. loL!) he shifted a comuter chip, AND WHALA! Awesome! the computer started up perfectly! That was so cool!

Ok, then, we went out for dinner to celebrate our B-days(Sis and I). We decided to have pizza. So, we went to a place called "La Porchetta". Sounds kindda posh don't ya think? lolz..We ordered lots of stuff, i had Chicken BBQ pizza. Oh, it was delicious! One of the best i've had. Guess i ate too much though, cuz i'm currently having a sore throat. Then, we headed back home. To my surprise, my dad and mum bought a B-day cake without my knowing! It was fantasic! Though the cake wasn't a Grand one, probably one which cost 5bucks, i really enjoyed it. We had a normal celebration, with the B-day song and such. Finally, we ate the cake WITH ice-cream. Well, one of my 14 B-days to remember.

Passion for The Lost

Hey peeps! How are ya? I had a pretty good day today. I went to church in the morning, had a good Soccer Presentation Lunch, had a little soccer training and watched a Soccer match (Manchester United vs Birmingham City). And for all the Man Utd fans, don't be discouraged, at least you peeps got 1 precious point from the fixture. Be grateful!

Something really Cool happened today. I went to church and the service was awesome. The message was fantastic too! The title of the sermon was "Missions exist because Worship does not". It was about missions and worship, obviously. lolz...won't elaborate much on it. But what touched me most was the closing song. Have any of you ever heard "You Said" by Don Moen? Well, i reckon that's one of the most meaningful songs ever. I was so inspired by the song that i composed a poem similar to it(Not Breaking Copyright Laws). lolz!

During my QT, i prayed to God. I asked God to speak to me and to reveal his plan for my life. Prior to this, i've tried asking God but i didn't get a clear response. However, this time i opened my bible and i was literally stunned by the first paragraph. It read:
"In the course of time, David inquired of the Lord.
'Shall i go up to one of the towns of Judah?' he asked.
The Lord said, 'Go up.'
David asked,' Where shall i go?'
'To Hebron," the Lord answered.

Is that cool or what? Well, it said "In the course of time" so, i'll just wait for the Lord to give me a clear sign. Don't wanna jump to conclusions. OK, i'll share this poem with ya. It's one of my best. Enjoy! God Bless! ~8)

God's Promises
My God is great!
His praises i sing.
His promises,
Are true and everlasting.
If you have a big family,
With a thousand mouths to feed.
He said ask and you will receive,
Whatever you need.
If your life,
Is in sixes and sevens.
He said pray,
And he'll hear from heaven.
Do you have a passion for the lost?
He is a God of love and patience.
He said ask,
And he will give the nations.
So won't you pray,
In desperate faith.
For those lost souls,
Who aren't yet saved?
God & Isaac

Recalled Skills

Hey peeps! How are ya? I just wanna congratulate everyone who have got their exams over and done with. Another year passed so quickly, in just a twinkling of an eye. Though there are many things that have happened since the day i came to Australia, it still feels like a short time. And... There's 47 more days to go before my flight back to SG! lolz..i'll be counting everyday.

Oh, my mum and i had a fright today when my sis said she had a pain in her abdomen Apparently, she had had the pain since yesterday. The pain is situated just below her stomach, which lead my mum to the conclusion that it was appendicitis. For those ppl who don't have a clue about what it means, it is a kindda useless organ in the body which is malfunctioning, thus, an operation has to be conducted to remove it. There is no disadvantage not having a appendicitis, but the operation would hurt a great deal. My mum decided to take my sis to the hospital for a check up this afternoon. We prayed before they left, the 3 of us.

Fortunately, the problem wasn't as dire as we thought it was. It wasn't appendicitis. It was some kind of muscle soreness. My sis has been doing lots of sit ups recently, and that may be the problem. lolz...Praise the Lord! That was a close shave. I wouldn't want my sis to undergo a operation.

I better get to the thrilling part, before i make the title of this post irrelevant. Alright, i had a pretty good day today. I went for Chinese tuition in the morning, did 2 hours of work, and chilled for the rest of the day. What i wanted to talk about was how i "regained" my soccer skills during Chinese Tuition. lol! During our 30 minute reccess, i played soccer with some older Asian dudes. Normally, i play in a defensive position, but this time i played both- defending and attacking. Sort of like, a midfielder. Well, i don't know what happened, but i seemed to be able to do the things i used to do back in SG! lol! Seems funny yea? But these things happen. Goes the same for other sports such as Tennis, Running, Basketball, etc.

Alright, time for the poem i composed today. It's pretty good, and i'm proud of it.

Mending Relationships

Like a string and a pin-hole,
That never seem to meet.
Like two hungry lions,
Fighting for some meat.
I try hard,
My my shoe just won't fit.
I hate it,
I don't like it a bit.
In the same way,
Broken friendships are hard to mend,
And arch enemies,
Are hard to fend.
But with perserverance,
And some assurance in the soul.
The irritating string,
Will fir perfectly into the hole.
God & Isaac

Soccer Ca-pi-tan!

Hey peeps, i'm on a high note today. Guess what? I got selected by my class, to be their captian for an Inter-Class Indoor Soccer Competition! Awesome! I can't believe it! I get to pick a team of 10 out of 26 people. I must be careful not to offend some of them though. And it's hard not to do so, in Australia, almost everyone wants to take part in Sports. I picked the team yesterday and i invented a clever method which enables everyone to play. Thank God for helping me. It's quite complex and i don't wanna bore you with the facts.

Well, you gotta wish me all the best because we will be up against 8 strong opposition teams. I feel a lot of pressure as the captian of the team. I mean, if we lose, the class would blame me (Even if they don't mean it, they just wanna make you feel bad). lolz.. Feel anxious now. The competition will be starting on the first day of November.

I learnt to cook another dish today! Nice-looking, Sweet-tasting, Fragrant-smelling Fried Butter Prawns! lolz...I never knew it was so easy to cook prawns. They cook so fast! But the secret is in the ingredients. It's kindda hard and tedious, but i really like cooking. AND, i'm not gay. lolz... it's also good because you can cook something up if there's nothing to eat. Aww, i can smell the fragrance of the prawns now. I feel like dashing to the kitchen and pour the whole plate of butter prawns down my throat. Seriously, the end result's awesome!

I had to write another essay for English again. This is one of my best. I used a bit of the prophecies in Revelations to blend in with it. Yep, you guessed right, i'm gonna post it. lol.. The essay is actually a continuation to another story called "The Pedestrian". Ok, the intro:
This dude named Leonard Mead is living in the 21st century. He's kindda different from the rest of the people. During this period, everyone seems addicted to the television. They go to work in the morning, so the streets would be all busy and noisy. However, they would be resting on the couch, watching T.V for the rest of the night. Leonard takes a stroll one night, it's all quiet because everyone else is watching T.V in their houses. After walking for a while, he meets a police car. The police car is computer-controlled, there was no diver. He gets arrested for being a phycotic simply because he doesn't like to watch T.V, and gets transported to a centre called " Phyciatric Research Centre For Regressive Tendencies". The story ends here.

This is my continuation(It's pretty long, but enjoy!):
The Pedestrian Continued...
Shops and houses whizzed past. The police car was travelling extremely fast. Leonard could only catch glimmers of the names of various buildings: "Global Bank", "United Groceries", "Fuel Co-operation", and "United Sex". The car came to an abrupt halt. There was a gigantic complex that looked like a durian. It had odd-looking windows, which stuck out from the sides of the rounded building. It was approximately the size of ten football fields.

The car was positioned just in front of a huge metallic door. I looked up as red lasers shot out from nowhere and started to scan the entire police car.
A robotic voice called out "Do you have any passengers on board?"
"Scan your mark here" The police car called instructed.
A mark-scanning device popped up from a black box. Leonard picked it up and scanned the mark on his forehead.
"Authorization accepted. Welcome Mr. Leonard Mead, please enter."
The metallic door twisted and turned and finally opened. The police car rolled in. The scanning procedure was recently introduce. Every living person had to have a mark, a set of numbers, on his or her forehead. They would be able to buy and sell using the mark. The mark had to be scanned before a person would be able to operate any electrical equipment.

Leonard was astonished when he saw what was in the building. He wondered where the "psychotics" were as there were no prison cells. Instead, the place looked more like a high-tech laboratory. There were endless rows of computers. The car drove further into the building. It came to a halt. The back door jerked open and Leonard hopped out. He twisted his waist and cracked his knuckles. He noticed that they were at the end of the rows of computers and was surprised to find a cafeteria, an entertainment room and even a swimming pool. Just then, the police car started its engine and drove away.
"Hey! Wait for me!" Leonard shouted.
"I’ll be waiting to collect you after he’s done with you." The police car answered.

There was a long flight of stairs, with golden railings, leading up to the next level. He could not see what was up there. There was something strange about the stairs, he was somewhat, attracted by it. "Climb up. Climb!" the voice rang through his mind repeatedly. He could not resist it and climbed up. When he was nearly near the top, he could see a metallic door with a tag, which read "U.N Secretary General – Nicolae Carmathia". He could hear someone speaking in a loud, evil voice.

"Yes! Yes! That is what I want…it’s what I need! Oh yes, you have the power to give it all to me. That is why I worship you. Oh god, may your power be known throughout the earth! I will…" The voice softened and it started to sound muffled. Thousands of thoughts flashed through Leonard’s mind, he freaked out at what he heard. However, as though as he had been hypnotised, his hand took a firm hold of the metallic doorknob. He tried to remove his hand from the doorknob, but it was beyond his control. He turned the doorknob and the door swung open without a sound. He could not hear the voice anymore. There was deadly silence.

The room had a green-carpeted floor and walls painted red. It was well decorated with nude paintings. There was a large desk in the middle of the room. There was a man sitting on a throne-like chair, behind the desk. He was staring directly into Leonard’s eyes. Leonard felt a cool chill tingling down his spine. The man was charming. He had neatly combed blond hair and a good posture. However, there was something particularly strange about his eyes. They seemed to have absorbed all of Leonard’s attention. All Leonard could do was to stare aimlessly into his deep blue eyes.

"Mr. Mead, it’s a great pleasure to meet you! Please, take a seat." He said humbly. Leonard knew he was in hot soup. He could hear the sarcasm behind the man’s flattery. Leonard walked up to the desk and took a seat.
"My name is Nicolae Camarthia. You think you know why you’re here, but in actual fact you don’t even have a clue. You are one of those rebellious ones that simply refuse to comply with the television law." He said.
Leonard felt offended. He rebutted, "How could it be illegal not to watch television for eight hours a day? There’s something fishy about this and you know it!"

Nicolae gave a evil smirk and said, "Let me indulge you in a little secret since you’re not gonna live through tonight. Think about a New World Order. Think about a totally new and improved world!" The enthusiasm in his voice grew as he continued. "With one currency, one religion, one goal, one market, one community, one dream! And most importantly," he spoke in an soft, evil tone "One leader. A dictator. A potentate!" Leonard immediately knew whom he was referring to.
Nicolae continued, "Brain-washing the world with the use of television, putting my ideas and thoughts into their weak minds was a fantastic idea. But there always seems to be a few imbeciles that stand in my way every now and then. Unfortunately, my only choice is to do away with them. Mr. Mead, you know that your death will be for a good cause, for the sake of the world."

He pulled out a high-powered handgun, scanned his number, loaded it and pointed it at Leonard. Leonard knew exactly what was happening, he was engulfed with fiery panic.
"Anything to say before I pulled the trigger?" Nicolae asked.
" Who are you?" Leonard asked.
Nicolae burst out in an evil laughter. He strutted proudly towards Leonard and pushed his fringe up, revealing his forehead. Leonard shut his eyes in disgust.

The numbers "666" were the last things he saw.

Sweet Memories...

Hey peeps! Look at my post title and you'll think that i'm a retard. "Sweet Memories". Seriously, do any of you actually think of your old friends and the "cool" things that happened in the past. Well, i didn't do it as much as i'm doing it now when i in Singapore. I really feel so previlledged and honoured to have friends like you peeps. Seriously, you don't treasure someone until you "lose" or lose contact with the person. I was just staring at the mirror in my room and i saw the old church photograph. Though it's pretty old and everyone's looks have pretty much changed, it reminded me of the "old times". lolz...It was touching. Felt like something was "throbbing" my heart.

Oh yea, hope ya still remember the post i had last week. The one on the table-tennis match i had with the teacher-in-charge. lolz.. His name is Doctor.G, Dr.G. Alright, today was the last day i would be playing table-tennis for sport. I made 2 very good friends there, including the Dr.G. It was kindda sad when i knew it would be a VERY long time till i would be able to play table-tennis with them again. So i really treasured the final games i had with both of them. However, guess what?, i didn't bring my table-tennis bat. lol! I had to use the crappy ones provided by the school.

Despite that, i had a extremely tense game with Dr.G, yet again. We played best of 5 sets. He won the 1st set, i won the 2nd, he won the 3rd, i won the 4th and 5th. lol! So the final result the 2-3, my victory. ~8) I feel like i'm on cloud 9. lolz..It was really hard to play with those crappy bats. You would have peed in your pants if you were watching the match, seriously. There was one set when i was 8-10 down. All Dr.G needed was 1 more point to seal the set. My heart was beating intensely, i could feel the strong surges of blood pumping through my veins. 9-10,10-10,11-10,12-10! LOL! i won 4 points straight and claimed the set! What a comeback. lolz..guess you wouldn't have a clue aobut what i'm talking about.

And, another thing to congratulate me on. I learnt to cook another dish today! We'll be having it for dinner tonight (Yummy!). It's a mixture of potatoes, carrots, chicken, onions and mushrooms. It's like a combination dish. It seriously tastes awesome. I'll cook it for some of you if i get a chance to when i'm in SG. Hmm...I wonder how much i should

Oh yea, It's been quite a long time since i composed a poem. I've actually been improving some songs that i've composed. I composed 2 songs. They sound pretty terrific. And i was wondering, just wondering, if just one of them could be used for the item during the church camp. I know it's a little bit like wishful thinking. Won't post them here though, i'm only gonna post one poem. Enjoy!

Better Life

Are you in your prime?
The strongest you'll ever be.
The best years of your life.
Seen all there is to see.

It goes around and around,
Like a never-ending wheel.
Doing the same things over,
Till you fulfill your will.

Is that the life you want?
Such a predictable tale.
Will you be happy?
No! You'll only stand to fail.

God has better for you,
Many mission for you to do.
But are you willing,
To carry them through.

Have faith in God,
To blossom your life.
To take care of you,
And lead you through every strife.

God & Isaac

Mum's B-day

Hey peeps, haven't posted for yesterday. I have a very valid reason. That i don't like. Simply because it's horid, gay, destestable and disgusting. The reason is because i was doing work 7/8 of yesterday. Let me guide you through the events i went through yesterday. First up, 9.00am Chinese Tuition at a nearby high school, lasted till 12.20pm. I had my lunch and rested(Thank God!). Started work again at 2.40pm and worked until 6.30pm. I was working on a Geography project and some Maths. That was like hell, studying for so many hours straight, but that's not the end of it. I had my dinner quickly and left for a cell group meeting which started at 7.30pm and ended at 10.00pm. I arrived home at 11.00pm, walked into my room and dropped dead on my bed. lolz...What a day don't ya think? Well, at least i did a extremely good job on my Geography project. Aiming for another A+. lolz..

It's my mum's birthday today. Guess what? I was so busy the day before that i didn't have time to do a B-day card for her! Shh... lolz...i knew that Sunday was her B-day but i left the "Card-Making" till Saturday. Haiz... So, i had to wake up early today, at about 6am. I was exhausted from yesterday's activities, but i pushed myself on to do a B-day card for my mum. I plonked myself on the dining table, got some coloured pens and a piece of coloured paper. I thought for a moment and started on it. Well, it turned out to be a fantastic card! lolz...can't really describe it. But it's one of the best, i mean probably the best card i've done. I'm proud of it. ~8)

Oh yea, something very wierd happened today. I had received a inspiring email from my sis, and i believe i've forwarded it to most of ya peeps. The email had a very touching story about a mother who was having some trouble coping with the recent death of her son. It was amazing, it told about why God doesn't really stop bad or drastic things from happening. Just after i forwarded the email to everyone, I went online on MSN. A good old friend named, Gilchrist, came online a few minutes later and I chatted with him. He told me that his Granddad was diagnosed with luekaemia(I think that's the right spelling) and had a few months more to live. I was like "Oh God, you are marvellous!" I told him about the email i had just read and i sent it to him. Wow, God encourages people in different and unique ways. I feel so good that God actually used me to encourage such a good friend. Well, that's just half the point. There's something EXTREMELY important to be done. See, Gilchrist and his family are Christians. However, his granddad hasn't accepted Christ yet and he has a timebomb counting down on his remaining days. What i want YOU to do is to pray RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE for him. Even though you don't know who in the world Gilchrist is, just pray because God will know. Well, do you have the FAITH that God hears and listens to every single prayer and that YOUR prayer will have a GREAT impact on a dying soul on this planet. Jesus said "Ask and you will receive, Seek and you shall find, Knock and the door will be opened unto you." he also said "Pray and I'll hear from Heaven." But do you have Faith?

Friday, October 08, 2004


Hey peeps, you wouldn't believe what happened today. I'll explain it later, but you'll get the idea by looking at the title of the post. one tagged me since yesterday. No Worries! Guess you peeps are having some hard times with your exams. Well, i guess you would be in the middle of them right now. I just wanna cheer you peeps on. All the best! Finish the race!

Alright, what happened was this. Every student in my school has an personal account. We have our own account number and password. We are given a few megabytes of space in our account and a school email. During my Software Design class today, i tried to log in. I typed in my account number and password, only to receive this message "Your account has been disabled." lolz... i thought it was nothing serious. Just a glitch of some sort maybe. My friend had the same situation too. However, it was just the two of us. lolz...Subsequently, we told the teacher-in-charge. Guess what, a few minutes later, the teacher called us up for a "little chat". Beside the teacher-in-charge was the head computer technician. I was kindda intimidated because the situation had blown up to become something very serious. The technician said that both my friend and i have been found hacking into the school server, deleting and manipulating certain files and documents. He said that we could change our test scores and stuff like that. I was shell-shocked and so was my friend. There was no way that i could do such a thing! I was being wrongly accused!

We were questioned. Fortunately, the Teacher-in-charge was my Geography teacher and he said that there was no way that my friend and i would do such a thing, but he didn't know if we could do such a thing. Thus, we got our accounts back for the time being, however, we were on the technician's "BLACK BOOK". lolz..but whatever, i didn't do it. It must have been some hacker that hacked into my account and used it to manipulate the school's server. What a retard! I'm kindda chessed off now.

Oh yea, and that's not the most amazing thing. Just the night before this incident, i had a wierd dream. I dreamt that that "Teacher-in-charge" was scolding me for some reason. And i woke up wondering "What in the world??!?!?!?!" lolz...guess it was kindda a revelation of the future. Kindda wierd eh? well, i felt that way. It's getting late now. I've gotta go sleep. Cya peeps! All the best for your exams!

Internet Up, Comp Down

Hey peeps! Fewer and fewer people seem to be reading my blog nowadays, only Lyd's doing so. Sorry that i was not able to post yesterday because...MY ISP(Internet Service Provider) was down. lolz..can u believe that?! That just cheeses me off. And what's worse is that my computer's down today. Fortunately, i can still use my mum's laptop to do my posting. I really REALLY can't wait to meet ALL of you peeps when i get back to Singapore. I've gotta plan my schedule well lol! So many people to see in such a limited time. Hope to have a fun time then. I feel really wierd when all you peeps are having exams and i'm merrily enjoying myself over here. No Worries, you'll get your chance to tease me when i'm having my exams. Well, there's no poem for today. I just wanna share with you what i did today.

Had a pretty good day today. Went to school. I had a different time table today. We had a "Life Skills" Seminar. Sounds pretty wierd eh? It's kindda like inspirational, as well as informative. There were two guest speakers that spoke. They spoke about different things. One of them spoke wasn't too facinating, he spoke about not giving up. He used to be a extremely fit person. He even won 2 triathalons. Cool eh? Well, he met with a stroke 8 years ago, a major stroke. He couldn't use his right side of his body and he couldn't speak properly. But he struggled hard to improve his condition. And now, he's able to walk properly and move his right arm. However, he can't his right hand, much less his fingers.

The other speaker however, was much more interesting. And what enthrilled me more, was that he was a Christian! He used to be those people along the dark streets, taking relief jabs and going for the "Hot Stuff". And what facinated me was that he was a ROBBER! lolz! he told us that he started off by stealing cuz he didn't have sufficient finances. And as he grew older, he started to rob banks. There was one situation when the police arrived while he was conducting a robbery. He never had a real gun, he only used a fake one. But in that incident, he was met head on with a police officer. He grabbed the officer's gun and held him at gunpoint. lolz...the suspense was awesome. He told us that he could have just killed the police officer, but he didn't. He got apprehended and served a jail sentence of 8 years or something like that. He was a completely changed person when he came out. He told us that he had gained a lot of experience when he was in prison. He also received a bible and started reading it. Then, he started realising that he had wasted a huge chunk of his life. He accepted the Christian faith, and he has been working as an inspirational speaker ever since.

The whole "Life Skills" seminar was kindda fun, but it made me realise something. It made me realise how fortunate i was to be born in Singapore and have such good and wonderful parents. Seriously, over here in Australia, 3 out of 5 marriages have ended in divorces. Saddening eh? That means that there's a very high chance that your friends over here would have parents that are separated. Well, now i apprieciate my parents more than i've ever had.

God Bless You!

First Day Last Term

Hey peeps, wassupz? Yesterday was the first day of school. I wasn't used to waking up so early as i got accustomed to waking up late during the holidays. I'm sure you peeps have had the same feeling. Going back to school to meet old friends feels pretty good. But when i went to school yesterday, i was met with a pleasant surprise. One of my good friends had grown about 8-10 cm. No joke! lolz.. at the start of the school year, he was about my height or slightly shorter than me. But now, lol! he's starting to look down on me already. And another dude, by the name of Philip, got dumped by his GF. lolz! it's a really humourous story all in all. But both of them were just playing one another.(This is quite usual in this Aussie society).

Ok, talk about today. Went to school early in the morning. Chatted with friends, did some work, paid attention in class and played Table-Tennis. lolz..Find it funny that the words "paid attention in class" are in itallics? Well, try emphasis instead of sarcasm. I had sport for the last two periods of the day, Table-Tennis. Haven't really put as much effort into training like i used to do back in SG. Back in SG, it was breathe, drink and sleep table-tennis. During the holidays, it was 4 out of 5 weekdays of training. Phew...But i really enjoyed it though. Well, as i was saying, i played table tennis today and i was a little "OUT-OF-TOUCH". But i finally recovered some old tricks and skills :P lolz... There were about 5 people in my table-tennis group and a teacher-in-charge. I played 3 games. I won all 3 of them! ~8)

The only highlight was when the teacher offered me a challenge when he saw how 'badly' i was playing. We played best out of 5 sets. That means that the first player to win 3 sets, wins the game. The teacher turned out to be a prO! lolz.. he almost trashed me in the first set. I won the second one. He won the third one. And at that time, i had almost lost all hope. Fortunately, i won the 3rd set with some difficulty. It was the last and final set. It would decide the winner and the loser. The hero and the villian. The teacher and the student. Think i got it wrong there. lolz! Alright, both of us played very well, we were tied up like a dead knot at 9-9. My heart was beating like a boiling teapot. It was my service, and i could beat him if i produced 2 top-class serves. "Stomp!" My foot hit the wooden ground. 10-9 in my favour. Match point for me. I served again, but he returned it this time. I did a top-spin and he tried to smash it straight at me. I shut my eyes.

It was out of the table! lolz! i won the teacher. Cool eh? lolz...i was making a mountain outta a mole hill. but that really happened, just not was spectacular. lolz..alright, it's time for my poems. Enjoy! =)

Ever came across,
A daunting hill?
ever stopped in your tracks,
By an enormous bill?

When troubles show,
And problems arise.
I try to remember,
God's gracious sacrifice.

If the Lord God Almighty,
Is always by your side.
All challenges and fears,
Will all subside.

God & Isaac

Helpless Soul
Pinned down by a heavy yoke,
Feet in stocks.
On all fours,
Surrounded by piercing rocks.

Blackness all around,
Not a single ray of light.
Who can save me,
from this dreadful plight?

Like a small boat,
In an endless sea.
Like dissolving sugar,
In a cup of tea.

Trapped in a cruel ditch,
As destitute as one can be.
I wonder who,
Who will hear my plea?

God & Isaac

Fermented Breath

Hey peeps, received very few tags. And no one answered my question about what you peeps see on the top of the page(Above the picture of the cross), except Char and Tab! -.-" My questions are falling on deaf ears =...(

Oh yea, something really funny, or rather disgusting happened yesterday. I was doing some work on the computer, my Science Presentation Project. When i had finished with it, i walked out into the dining room to do some reading. Just then, my mum walked in and offered me a drink. I said "Sure". She handed me the red and white Liverpool mug which Tab gave me. I peered into it. It was some orangy yellow substance, i took a sip. It tasted kindda zesty, sweet and a tinge of sour. I thought my mum had come up with some special fruit punch or something like that. It actually tasted kindda nice though.

I tilited the cup to make sure there wasn't any more juice in it. After a few hours, i met my mum agian and i asked her what was the drink that she gave me. I thought it was apple juice. And she said "Opps!". I was like "Uh huh...". And the moment she said "Fermented Apple Juice", i was "NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" i said, it tasted kindda nice though. Well, that was wierd. Hope i don't get a constipated stomach today.

Here's my poem for today =) Enjoy!

God's Plan
God's mind cannot be fathomed,
It can never be read.
His thoughts can only be described,
With words that can't be said.

His plans are flawless,
His works are great.
But many people claim,

That it's only fate.

Sometimes God's plan,
Makes him look as black as soot.
But take a look at the big picture,
You'll find it'd turn out good!

So when you're in trouble,
You must always say.
God is working,
Even till this day!

God & Isaac

Hey peeps, no one tagged me yesterday. =( *sobs* Alright, there's nothing much to talk about today. But i wrote a pretty good poem, it's one of my favourites. I was just pondering over something, wondering why God made man, why God made each one of us. I think it's kindda like, each one of us has a purpose to fulfill for God. We have a choice, whether to follow it, or not. To me, the Will of God may not actually be his plan. Enjoy the poem!

I wonder why,
Why i was meant to be.
Why on earth,
Did God make me?

He knew very well,
That i'd make him sad.
Though i started good,
I'd turn out bad.

There must be a meaning,
A Purpose for my life.
And i God wants me to,
I would take the dive.

When i meet God,
In the heaven's eternal bless.
I will adore the wonderful plan,
He had and has.

Oral Presentation....AGAIN!

Hey peeps, how're you doing? I just completed a Science presentation. And as you would have already known, it's ORAL! I hate orals. Just hate it from the bottom of my heart. Haiz...but it still has to be done. Previously, i had to do an oral book report. But this time, it's worse. It's a powerpoint presentation containing 15 slides! Looks like it's time to get ready for hell.
Well, there's nothing i can do now except to practice and to pray. lolz...

My grandmum's returning to Singapore mid October because she doesn't have a 'PR' status. And if she goes, there will be no one here to do the cooking. So to prevent our family from straving, or to resort to eating raw food, someone has to learn to cook. And guess what? I volunteered. lolz...i know you're laughing, but i kindda like cooking. I've learn to do 2 dishes today. Some pork stew and fried mee-fen, in other words "Chao Mi Fen". It was pretty easy though, surprisingly. I think i've gotta jot the recipe down somewhere until i memorise it.

Oh yea, seems like lots of you are undergoing your exams during this period of time. Just wanna wish you peeps all the best! and may God grant you knowledge for your exams. Oh, and this music thing is really annoying. What do u peeps see at the top of this page? Right in the middle. It should tell you how to play the music. Or if any 'Real Player' launcher pops up, just click 'OK'. Then you will be able to hear the cool music.

Alright, it's time for my poem. It's entitled "The Road of Life". I think my sis has already told you peeps(in her blog) that it was the theme of a recent sermon we heard in church. Well, i just thought about it today, and found it pretty meaningful. So, without any furthur ado...Enjoy!

Road of Life
Winding and turning,
A long and narrow road.
You can either drive easy,
Or walk with a heavy load.

On this road,
You're never alone.
The road runs long,
And the ending's unknown.

Behind ever corner,
The secret is sealed.
Beyond every turn,
The adventure revealed.

You'll never know,
Where the Road of Life's gonna take you.
So don't take your eyes,
Off that curvy road.

The plan of God,
Is the Road of Life.
The question is,
Will you survive?

God & Isaac

Hey peeps! Ya know, you peeps are soooo lucky to be in SG. Back in SG, the public transport's awesome, you can go anywhere, anytime. But over here, it's the opposite. It's either you have a car, or nothing at all. lolz..stupid eh? Well, the point is this simple equation:
No Transport = Life - Lanning - Movies - Outtings
lolz...but anyways, A family friend, Aunty Angie, took Sha and i out for a movie! However, she has 2 children aged 2 and 5. Thus, we had to watch a 'kinatdda' kiddy movie. But it didn't matter, the show was "Shark Tale". It was a pretty good show. Boring at some parts, but the story line is awesome. After watching the movie, we went for a delicious lunch, ROTI PRATA! ears tingle at the sound of those 2 words. We had some chicken, mutton curry, Indian vegetable and some prata. I really enjoyed the meal. One of the best i've had in Australia.

You would guess what happened yesterday. Or rather today, if you count 12.35 a.m the next day. During my quiet time, i was just praying that the Lord would show his love to me (For some unknown reason). The words just shot out of my mouth: "O Lord, show your love towards me." I didn't really have a lot of intention in those words. I slept early that night, 10pm.

I didn't know why but i just woke up at 12.35 a.m. I thought it was the usual "Wake-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night-then-go-back-to-sleep" routine, but it wasn't. I couldn't get back to sleep this time. It was because of the music. My sis had turned on some Christian music just before she fell asleep. And the words just filled my mind, like filling your mouth with sweet honey. Just imagine that. The words were so meaningful that my eyes were watery. I just felt how much Christ loved me. Unconditional, Sacrificial, Gracious, Deep love. Just then, i remembered my prayer to God to show his love for me. Well, it was answered! Praise the Lord!

This poem is to show how great God's love really is:

God's Love
Think about his love,
His love for you and me.
The saving love,
He gave so free.

Think about the planets,
Revolving in space.
Yet i was the largest,
The biggest in his face.

Loving is easy,
Without a sacrifice.
But my God gave,
His Son Jesus Christ.

If you think you're small,
In this world of lies.
You're enormous,
In your Father's eyes.

God & Isaac

Monday, September 27, 2004


Hey peeps, how're you guys doing? I had a pretty good day yesterday. Ok, first thing to talk about. Last Saturday (3 days ago), Jerusha and I accompanied my mum for a cell group meeting. It was pretty good, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. However, there was a time of fellowship when the adults just chatted. The cell meeting ended at 9pm and they finished chatting at 11pm. And you know what? I experienced hell in that 2 hours. Sha and i were taking care of the little children. There were 2 gals and 2 dudes. All aged from 2-5 years old. They were all very restless. They started to beat sha and i up, needless to say, we couldn't retaliate. They were hitting kindda hard for 2-5 year olds. There was once when a small dude punched me in the face. And Sha was like "Ouch!". Imagine the pain. I really wanted to teach the dude a little lesson. But how could i? With all the parents around. lol! Nevermind, i can't blame little children for being restless. BUT, there was this gal. She was the oldest among those toddlers, about 5 years old. And you know gals that age are like...full on crazy about romance and that sort of stuff. She started whispering stupid things to me, and i was like "Yea.........whatever." THEN, guess what she said next? " You should marry whoever has ear rings," she said. "I have ear-rings." I was like WTC! How could such a young gal come up with such a thing! Haiz.. we left soon after that. Well, that was a wierd experience for me.

Oh yea, what really blew me off was this. Just a few weeks ago, my mum told me to borrow an ear-digger for her cuz she wanted to dig my sister's ears. I borrowed it from my grandmother and gave it to my mum. END OF MY PART. Just yesterday, my grandmother came to me while i was doing my quiet time. She asked if i still had the ear-digger just to make sure that it's not missing. I was like "OH NO!". My mum had forgotten to return the ear-digger. Well, that wasn't the worst thing. When i told my mum, she went,"Why didn't YOU return it to her?". So i told her "Do you know what you're saying, mum? It's like Jerusha and i asked you to borrow a soccer ball from someone else. We played with the soccer ball and left it on the field we were playing on. When the person whom you borrow the ball from asks where the ball is, we simply blame you." And i just walked out of the room. I just wanted her to think about it. After an hour, i walked into the room again, and she was like "I don't remember asking you to borrow the ear-digger." Well, the quarrel went on and on. BUT, it's settled now. The ear-digger was found. However, the point is emphasised in my poem below.

Ok, it's time for poems! Enjoy!

An endless game of tug-of-war,
A rope that never tore.
The only outcome,
Making our hands sore!

A pointless soccer match,
Disgracing the lovely game.
The ball flies left and right,
Isn't it kindda lame?

No one likes to keep,
Responsibility in his court.
Kicking it to someone else,
And keeping the tensions taut.

Have you forgot?
Christ's blood for you he shed,
The love he had,
The pain he willingly beared?

Stop kicking the ball around,
Follow the example set.
All will be sound,
And everyone will be glad!

God & Isaac

Lots of distracations in this world,
Toys, games and plays.
Tend to hinder us,
Keeping us from what God says.

Do you feast on the Word of God?
Have you had your daily bread?
Or are you too busy?
Making yourself insanely glad.

The T.V is addictive,
Another one of satan's baits.
Are you being tempted?
Get your priorities straight!

God & Isaac

Big Quarrel

Hey peeps, it's Saturday already. How time flies... My school holidays are ending soon. But school will be fun. I was chatting to Lyd and Sian yesterday. We talked about their coming exams, and both of them said i was crazy because i wanted the exams to come ASAP. lol! that was funny. Who wouldn't want to get their exams over and done with?

Ok, the music thing is really cheesing me off. For those people who can't hear the music (Strangely, this happens to be everyone), go to this website and download the lastest media player :
That should do. Cuz the music rox! You'll be missing out if u don't. Please do so asap. It's free too. No viruses, no spam.

Now to tell you about what happened this morning. Wondered why the title of this post is called "Big Quarrel". Well, you wouldn't think this was BIG. But in my family, almost every quarrel is BIG. goes. My mum was supposed to take my sis and i out to shop for some clothing. And... she told me that she wanted to view a house first(We are currently looking for a house to buy) . So, i told her "Ok". We saw the first house, and then another, and another. I was quiet upset cuz my mum told me that we were only going to view one house. In addition to that, it was past 12pm and we had to get back for lunch. So what we had to do is - View 4 houses, shop for clothes and go back for lunch. The time was like a time-bomb in my head. Subsequently, i complained to my mum. I said that we were supposed to only look at one house and blah blah blah. Obviously, i took it a little too far. She had the impression that she had to report EVERYTHING she did to me, her son.

Consequently, she got SOOOO FURIOUS and SOOO PISSED that she just started the engine and headed for home. She wanted to drop me off at home, view the houses and then come pick me up again and go shopping. loL! i was like.."NO WAY, YOU MUST BE KIDDING ME!" lol! but she was off. 80km/h. lolz...anyways, it's over now, everything's fine. Now i know how some people feel when they are in conflict with their parents. Sometimes it can last for long periods of time, sometimes forever. Fortunately for me, it only lasted for an hour. Well, though out parents can be wrong at times, if u really think about it. They are doing either one of these two things:
- Things that are a absoulutely NECCESARY
- Things that are good for us
In addition to that, remember this law "Honour your Father and you Mother."

Ok, it's time for today's poem. It's kindda wierd, but anyways, here goes:

The Barren Tree
Useless, dry and rough.
That is all i can see.
Dull, unloving and uncaring,
The life of a barren tree.

Look at your life,
Are you like that barren tree?
Is your woody bark,
As dry as can be?

Get some living water,
It's time for a dunk!
Drench your branches,
And splash it on your trunk!

It's time to wake up,
And get revived.
Get out of your shell,
And get a life!

God & Isaac

Boring Holidays...

Hey peeps. I'm having a really boring holidays right now. Nothing to do except to watch TV, computer and soccer. Really wish school would reopen soon. I couldn't blog for the last two days because my laptop's spoilt. I can't type in the input box in the "Compose" page. lolz.. sounds complicated eh? well, it just makes me unable to post. So, i have to use the CPU for my blogging. Nothing much happened suring these 2 days. Hmm..let me think, I watched 2 movies. lolz..."Brother Bear" and "50 First Dates". Both movies were awesome! They're a MUST for those who haven't watched them. And i mastered a vegetable dish! took me pretty long to learn how to cook it. It tastes awesome!(Biased) I don't even know the name of the vegetable. lolz.. OK, it's time for the poems for the last 3 days. Enjoy!

If Christ came,
And on your heart knocked.
What would happen?
Would your door be locked?

One simple question,
Always puzzles me.
Would i go?
Or would i just let it be?

My heart tells me,
Without a doubt.
That i would go,
Whether flood or drought.

But when the time comes,
Would i be game?
When Christ calls,
Would i still feel the same?

Lord, help me,
I desperately plead.
To follow you,
Where ever your spirit leads.

God & Isaac

The medcine for quarrels,
The solution to problems.
Can you guess what it is?
It simply goes like this.

Would you read this poem,
To the very end?
If you're in a rush,
Would you wait for a friend?

Many or most time,
We get carried away.
Not knowing,
When or what to say.
This will give you,

An angered heart.
You may not have noticed,
but impatience played a part.

If love and patience,
Were in your heart.
It would have been prevented,
Right from the start!

God & Isaac

Lost Lifes
A cold and eerie night,
Lost with no one in sight.
My heart is filled with fear,
Only hoping to see a light.

My vision is blocked,
And my legs are numb.
Wincing in pain,
Of my dear broken thumb.

Looking up,
I see the starless sky.
At my wit's end,
I heaved a heavy sigh.

I knelt down feeling the coolness,
Pressing against my knees.
Feeling the chilling wind,
I held on to my warm fleece.

I looked up to heaven,
And wondered why.
But now i know,
Why Christ had to die.

God & Isaac

Hope you guys enjoyed that. See ya!

Thank God!

Hey peeps! Lots of people tagged me. That's cool! I'm into the 2nd day of the holidays. Nothing much to do really, except to play computer, soccer, table-tennis and read. lolz..Kindda boring. Well, i'll just have to do some work. I was so looking forward to this holidays. Have you ever had the experience when you were really in need of something, and when you get it, you don't really appreciate it as much as you thought you would. lolz...complicated eh? But that's how i feel now.

I really miss Singapore lots. But i'm afraid the same thing will happen. I'm currently craving to get back to SG. But i may not enjoy it as much. So, i'll have to plan my schedule well. lolz..Hmm..lots of people i have to pay a visit to. 1. Church friends 2. MSHS friends 3. St.Andrews friends 4. Soccer mates ~8) 5. Cousins
Wow, there's just too many people. Better not talk about it now.

Oh yea, for those people who have blogs and are not on my link list, please leave your blog URL on the tagboard. I'll link you ASAP. Hmm...ok, i'll tell you about one of my projects. Disgusting. Not disgusting, rather...'unique'. Guess the subject...

Sex Ed. The assesment is to come up with an advertisement that advertises a contraceptive method. Find it funny, eh? too. I just did it today. I'm doing condoms, Durex. It looks kindda cool. But nothing you'll be interested in...OR NOT? lol.. I freak out at the thought of all those contraceptive methods that 'intellegent' humans come up with. It's just utterly disgusting. It makes me ponder over something. Compare the current world now, to the time God first created it. Compare it again to the prophecies in Revelations.'s good to know that Christ is coming again soon. However, it's very saddening looking at how people in the current time act. Don't they have better things to do? Can't they just 'behave' well? lol...

Ok, enough of my rubbish. It's time for my poem. It's about arrogance. Have you ever been carried away in a sense of pride? I just realised that i tend to be self-righteous sometimes. And i find that scary because i didn't even realise it until some time later. I wanna apologise to those people whom i offended because i was too self-righteous.

This poem is just to remind people who are in a state of self-righteousness. God is the only one totally righteous. Here goes:

I've been perfect,
Free from sin.
Only failing to realise,
How proud i've been.

Lost in my determination,
To achieve a sense of excellence.
Of what turned out to be,
Sheer unwanted arrogance.

God was with me,
Every single day.
He helped me,
To change my sinful ways.

I could never change,
What i was meant to be.
But through his grace,
God changed me.

I express to God,
A heart of thankfulness.
Turning my arrogance,
Back into gratefulness.
God & Isaac

Thank God for you all!

Hey peeps! No one seems to be tagging me. Please add my blog site to your favourites and tag me everyday! lol..I had to retype this blog because my Internet Explorer just hung up on me when i was about to publish. Haiz.. I've composed 2 poems. The first is entitled "Free" and the other is called "Prayer". The one about Prayer isn't that good. But i sure hope you'll enjoy it!


You created me,
But i turned against you.
You could have destroyed me,
And left me without a clue.

But through your love,
I am redeemed.
It was by your grace,
So it seemed.

Though my life's a circus,
And sin have taken it's toll.
You gave me a purpose,
And restored my wounded soul.

Watching over me everyday,
Making sure i don't go astray.
"I love you Lord!"
Is my finaly say.

Though i don't deserve it,
You set me free.
Free from sin and death.
I'm as glad as can be.
God & Isaac

Did you like that? I'll show you the second one. It's pretty bad. SO...Don't bag me!


What a wonderful thing,
That God listens,
To what we have to say.
Every minute of the day.

What a priviledge,
To tell the Lord of all,
Your problems and worries,
That stand ever so tall.

Like a loving shepherd,
He listens to us.
Asking for things,
Like that new porcelain vase.

But he is a God of Love,
Who loves and cares.
Our sins, he forgives.
Our pain, he shares.

Ask for his guidence,
To lead you on your way.
Ask for his protection,
To protect you every day!
God & Isaac

Well, those were the 2 poems. Hmm..there's just one more. I composed it two days ago. Well, it's about tests. In this cruel world, everyone experiences tests. Tests can be from God. So let's look at it from a different perspective. A good example, is how i have to retype my whole post again! have no idea how pissed i was. But i had 2 options :
1. Retype it, for God.
2. Just leave it. Post tomorrow.

I chose the first one. Well, there are many choices you can choose from from every situation. But will it please God? Take a look at my poem =)


A broken heart,
The cry of a son.
A bad start,
The death of a loved one.

Why God? Why?
You caused this,
O God of love,
Is this love from above?

God is always good.
Though he gives you endless tests,
Not giving you any rest,
He loves you no less!

Who can fathom the mind of the Lord?
He gives you a task,
Only to see,
If you would last.

God is great,
His mind as sharp as glass.
But when your test comes,
Will you pass?
God & Isaac

Well, there you go. This is gonna be a really long blog. lolz..My dad just left for Ireland a few days ago. He's on some course/workshop or something. He'll be away for a month. =( Sure will miss him. I'm currently into the 10th hour of my holidays. lol..I wonder how i'm gonna spend it. I've got lots of projects to do. One of them is a programming project. I'll talk more about it.

I have an extra class in school called "Software Design". It's a cool subject. I get to learn how to program stuff using a program called "Visual Basic". It can do lots os stuff. Ya know the "My Computer" on your desktop? When you click it, it opens and reveals drives, yea? And when you click the drives, they reveal folders. And so on, so forth. I could do the same thing using Visual Basics. Awesome eh? yep, i have an assignment task to do over the holidays. It is to program a game from scratch. My game will be on Soccer. As usual. lolz..i'll show you peeps some day. It's gonna be hard to program, but i will pray.

Oh yea, for all you soccer fans! Tommorrow. The big showdown. 2 of the best teams in England's top flight soccer league. Liverpool. Manchester United. Awesome! lolz... I am gonna waking up at 5 a.m in the morning to catch that game (Although Liverpool's sure to win). lolz.. To all Man utd fans :"Enjoy the trashing!"

Gtg now peeps! See ya!

God Is Good

Hey peeps, finally got A song up. Haiz... I am a half failure. Initially, i tried to upload my own song. It's a Christian Rap song. However, i failed. (I'm a HTML noob). All i could come up with was the layout(What do you peeps think of it? i made it myself). Well, here's a replacement, Perfect by Simple Plan. Hope you people like it! =)

Hey Jeremy! Wow! I didn't expect you to tag me. Lolz..nice to be able to hear from you again. Miss the good old days. How are you doing in ACS I? Different from Maris Stella ain't it? lolz.. Yep, i like poetry a lot. It's a gift that God's given me. It's really awesome to hear from so many good old friends again. I'll be going back to SG in Mid-December. I'll arrange to see ya then!

Well, you remember about my Oral book review? lol...I had to do it yesterday! I like the word "yesterday". Finally got it over and done with. It was a heavy burden on me. It feels like a 50kg rock in my bag when i walk to school everyday. Oh yea, and you know why God's good? Just 2 days ago, 1 day before i did my book review, i was doing my quiet time. Then, i suddenly felt an urge, i thought, who am i doing my book review for? For sheer marks? Or for God? I made up my mind, the answer's obvious. That really boosted my confidence.

After recess. English Lesson. Time to stand up for God. I walked to my class. Have you ever had the feeling that you want to do something, but you just find it hard to? Well, i experianced that. I was finding it hard to walk to class. I wanted my stride to be light and easy. Rather, it was kindda like heavy but easy. Just like the quote "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak".

It was my turn to give my book review. I got out of my chair. Walked to the front of the class. The class was pretty noisy. While they were getting settled down to listen to my review, i prayed silently to my Father up above. "Lord, be with me, help me." I started. "The title of my book is Left Behind" I'll spare you people the details. It was kindda hard when i first started, but it got easier and easier. God was with me. Seriously, i felt a sense of peace. That got rid of my anxiety. I felt calm to a certain extent.

Then, i came to this sentence. "At a certain point of time, all the Christians in the world will be taken up to heaven instantly, leaving everyone else behind." I expected lots of jeering because 26/28 students in the class were non-Christians. However, when i looked around, i saw interested and shocked faces. Well, there was a little rebellious noise. Nothing could stand before God and myself. I finished my book review with style. I got an 'A' for it. Thank God!

I hope this is a real encouragement for those of you who are experiancing difficult or even different situations. Well, this may sound like a cliche, but there are always troubles in life. But you know what? God's always there to help. He's always waiting just outside the door of your heart. Waiting to help you, IF you ask. There's nothing the Lord can't do for you! But the question is, would you ask?

Sorry Peeps!

Hi, I just wanna apologise for the inactivity of the website. Wow, so many people posted. Who in the world is Lowell and Jerm anyways? loL! I doubt i know them. But anyways, hi dudes. The reason why i was "AFK" for a while was because i started on a new game called "Ragnarok". For all of youse who have played it before, PLS DON'T BEG ME! lolz.. it's a cool game. RPG. You just walk around killing monsters, meeting new friends and gaining levels and skills. Lame eh? nothing else to do. haiz..

Since i have been inactive for so long, i should update you on the past few weeks. Hmm..oh yea, my soccer season has already ended. Guess what? *Step Back (You're gonna be suprised)* My team finished FIRST!(From the bottom, that is). lolz...but we all had a fun season losing all our games except for 2 draws. Well, we are getting relagated, that means that we are gonna get dropped to a lower division(easier opposition). Hope we will do well in that division.

Ok, the most recent problem. Book Report. Sounds easy eh? But try adding another word, "Oral". And add, in front of a classroom of Aussies. The equation is:
Book Report + Oral + In front of a class filled with Aussies = Horrible Death
lolz..but you know what? The title of my book is "Left Behind". I reckon some of you peeps would have read it. I seldom read books in the past. However, my sis introduced me to this series of books called the "Left Behind Series". Well, it's about the End Times, when Christ comes again and takes all the Christians up to heaven instantly, leaving everyone else behind for seven years of trials and tribulations. Well, i felt a sense of urgency as well as responsibilty to inform those classmates of mine who didn't know God. So, i decided that if God wanted me to do my book review, I would do it couragously, for God. Easier said than done, lolz... i have 2 more English lessons in exactly 2 days to go before the HOLIDAYS! lolz... It's like a ongoing-time bomb. Ticking away, waiting to explode. And all i can do is to watch it blow up in my face. lolz...hope it'll be over by today. =)

Oh yea, talking about the holidays. My school term is ending 2 days from now! Yeeha! Thank God for the rest. I really need it. But i don't know what i'm gonna do actually. Over here in Australia, you need a car to get around. It's essential. It's like a EZ-link card back in Singapore. But maybe i'll just go out with some friends for a movie or some lanning. lolz..I'll also be composing a poem(hopefully every day of the holidays) so, my blog will be flooding with poems. BUT, they're COPYRIGHT. ty. lolz..

Wow, Joel, you tagged by blog eh? thanks, How's life been there? Do the cousins still meet on Sundays or something like that? What kindda game are you playing now? still doing Frozen Throne? And, how's school in the poly?

KK, i gtg to school now. See ya Peeps!

Unbelieveable Finding!

Has anyone ever lost a pretty valuable object and develop a really guilty feeling about it? It's like, you don't wanna, don't mean to lose the object, but it's just lost. Not entirely because of your own carelessness, but because of sheer incidence. I just hate that feeling. Especially if the lost object is expensive and sentimental.

Just two weeks ago, i lost my USB Drive. I found out just after school, so i came to a conclusion that i left my USB Drive in school. However, it was a Friday and there was no school the next day. That only meant that i had to live with the terrible guilt for two days (Saturday and Sunday), making my weekend miserable, and rush to school early next Monday to retrieve my USB Drive. Oh yea, for those of you I.T Pros who still can't figure out what a USB Drive is, a USB Drive is a storage device that you use to store files such as programs, pictures and documents. The costs range from $40-$200 for one, depending on the size(Megabytes) Mine was 149Mb (Pretty much). Well, it was only to be a test of faith. I had to have faith that God would help me to find it. However, i didn't find it on Monday. How about on Tueday? Fat Chance dude! lolz...i only found it on Thursday, and guess what? it wasn't in school, it was in the pocket of my jeans the whole time! I have no idea how it got there, it just did! lolz..Praise the Lord!

But...guess what? Last Friday, Three days ago. Dejavu. Ya know. More guilt? It's like...I'm cursed or something. I couldn't bring myself to tell my Dad, nor my Mum. I was kindda crapped up because i was 100% sure that i brought it to school. I had put som documents on it so that i could do some work at home. But now, it's gone missing. Checked in my jeans, blazer pockets, everywhere. Finally, (Not so Easy!) lolz.. i still couldn't find it. I decided that in the worst case senario, i would secretly store up my weekly pocket money to buy a brand new USB Drive. I was miserable. But i could sense that God was telling me to keep my faith. I did. But would it pay off?

On Monday (Today), i rushed to school early in the morning. Peeked through the computer room window to check if i left my USB Drive on the computer table. It's like someone's playing tricks on me. The room was partially lit. And it was too dark to see if my USB Drive was on the computer table or not! I was like -.-", you must be kidding me! I prayed a really desperate prayer to the Lord. I said, Lord, you said, Ask and i would receive, Seek and i will find, Knock and the door will be opened unto you. Guess what? The class that were using the room went in at 8a.m. The lights came on. I peered through the window, someone had picked the USB Drive up. He was walking to the teacher, i rushed into the class and asked the teacher if someone had seen my USB Drive. At the same time, the boy came to the teacher and told him that he had found a USB Drive. Unbelieveable, don't ya think? I mean, that was awesome! Praise the Lord!

To all ya peeps, I just wanna urge you to have faith in God. Especially desperate faith. For the Lord hears your prayers and requests. For he said "Ask and you will receive, Seek and you shall find, Knock and the door shall be opened unto you." That's God's promise to you. He words are true, and so is he. However, God is still the judge and it doesn't mean that he'll give you anything you want. Rather, remember that whatever God does, he does it for those who love him. Do you love him? Well, i do.

First Goal - Own Goal

I can't believe myself. What got into me today! lolz.. guess what. I had a soccer game on my home pitch (Wembley). The weather was perfect for a soccer game. We were about to play a "weak" team, Dingley Football Club. However, the challenge was still there. It was what we dudes call a "Winnable" game. lolz..we are a miserable lot. If we were to win this game (First win of the season. lolz!), our coach would go beserk, give each team member a hundred bucks and jumping into the raging sea. That's how hopeless my team is.

I woke up at 5.30+. I wanted to sleep longer, but i just couldn't keep my head on the pillow any longer. I washed up and decided to do my quiet time. At the end of my quiet time, i prayed a desperate prayer to God. I asked him to help me play well in my soccer game, to let it be the best game i've ever played, and the first game my team won. I was hopeful. God Answers Prayer!

We started the game on a high note. Everything was going well for the first 10 mins. Then came this long ball, deep into my half. As a defender, i ran as fast as i could. However, the striker whom i was marking, was running as fast as a bullet train (Just a little slower than me =P). He took the ball away. At wits end, i did a perfectly executed sliding tackle on him. Wow, how successful my last resort turned out to be! The game was tight, everyone wanted to be first to the ball, first to tackle, first to take a shot. Both the teams were held to a deadlock at the end of the first half.

The team was excited because we knew we still had a chance to win it. I was exhausted, i took a drink, thanked God for helping me with that tackle, and asked him to let us win the game once more. Then, i listened to the coach's prep talk. (Quite moral boosting actually, but that's not my type.)

Dingley's team approached the field. All the players got into position, ready to charge and tear one another apart. It was a battle of life and death. But would you guess. Dingley had a superbly awkward goal. A Dingley striker lobbed it on target and hoped it would get it. The ball moved at a pace of 1km/h, dropped past the keeper's hands and landed behind the goal line -.-" It came from no where. It was the goalie's fault. Honestly. We continued to press on. Our team looked more superior than Dingley at this stage. I kept praying and praying. We had lots of chances, but our striker failed to convert all of them -.-" I couldn't believe it! Missing from point-blank range.

But the worst was yet to come. A long ball came deep into my half. A Dinglet player took the ball to the right wing. Our right defender couldn't cope with his pace and skill. He rappled an extremely hard and low cross. It was a perfect cross. It was such that the keeper could not catch it, and the defenders had no chance of clearing it properly. There i was, standing in the middle of the penalty box with a professional striker heavy on my back. I had 2 options, slide and try to clear the ball (Risk an own goal) or to let the ball run past me (The striker would score). What was this? A lose-lose situation? -.-" I decided to do the heroics, i slid to clear the ball.

BONG! Guess what? I scored my first goal of the season! Would you believe that! What a marvellous strike by Isaac Newton Ho! (Just that it was the wrong goal) -.-" I struck the ball into the bottom right of my OWN goal. =( Haiz...My coach must have been extremely furious. I just lay there, stunned. I had had such a good game before i scored that own goal, possibly my best. But it was ruined by that own goal. Sigh..

We lost 2-0. But that's not the point. I just wanna say that, though you keep praying and begging God to help you. He may say 'no' to your request. God's not like a robot that responds to your every command. He makes the decisions. Well, we just have to trust in the fact that God loves us and that in everything he does, he does it for the good of those who love him.

See ya ppl! Enjoy your weekend!

Scool - U

That's me in my school uniform ~8) Posted by Hello


Hey ppl, This is my first post in my new blog. Feel kinda funny, cuz i don't normally do blogs. lolz... i just felt a little bored and decided to crate a blog.

As for you people back in Singapore. You won't believe how much you're missing out. lolz...i'm not talking about the freezing cold in winter. I'm talking about the sweetness of spring arriving at the doorstep here in Australia. I'm sure you ppl have heard pretty much about 'Spring', but have never experianced it. I just experianced it this morning. It was terrific! The grass was glowing green, the sun rose early and it was beaming with radiant light! (Not the type that causes you to wince) In addition to that, there were flowers with stunning colours in my frontyard. I was so amazed at God's creation. Truely, what a great and marvellous God we have!

I was so inspired by that, that i wrote a poem:

I marvel at Spring,
God's beautiful cration.
So beautiful yet complex,
Beyond my imagination

Early in the morning,
The sun was first to rise.
Pink flowers blooming,
All ready to entice.

Up on a treetop,
Small birds lay their perch.
Singing a lovely song,
While carrying out a hungry search.

They sky is radiant,
Lit up by the Sun.
Then i remembered,
Why God gave his Son.

God's love is boundless,
He causes the sun to rise.
Lighting up the fine line,
Where the horizon lies,

God's love is measureless.
Where do the birds get their food?
To whome are the birds singing?
And where do the flowers get their mood?

These remind me,
Of God's wondrous love.
The God who loves me,
From up above!
God & Isaac

Normal routine. Every saturday morning. 9 a.m Chinese Tuition. lolz... I can't say that I don't like Chinese anymore. Chinese is like a trump card over here. It's like an extra bonus. It's like having a piece of special bait when fishing. I have a friend in my school named Jack. He came to to Australia 4 years ago. He's from Shanghai, China. Cool eh? And i would speak to him in mandarin and no one around can understand. lol!

Sha and I have to go to a family friend's house later. And guess what? They live in a extremely far out place, near the edge of melbourne! lol! it's unbelieveable. It's almost an hour's drive from our house. So we have to leave at 4.30p.m to get there on time. i miss Singapore. The longest journey only takes half an hour.

Ok, that's the end of my first blog. Catch up on you guys laterz!
