People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

Jesus doesn’t just feel sympathy for the broken, He empathizes with us. In Mark 1:40, a leper kneeled before Him and begged, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Jesus, “moved with compassion,” responded, “I am willing; be cleansed.” What is amazing here is the fact that while Jesus could have just spoken a word of healing over the leper, He went one step further. He stretched out His hand to touch him (1:41). For a Jew to touch a leper was absolutely unthinkable. But such was Jesus’ compassion for the sick and rejected.

“Does Jesus care, when my heart is pained, too deeply for mirth and song? When the burdens press and the cares distress, as the day grows weary and long?” The answer is a resounding, “Yes! He does!” When we are afflicted with disease and pain, He cares. When wegrieve the loss of dear ones, He cares. When we are confused, desperately needing leadership, He has compassion for us. When we are mistreated, He feels for us. When we dredge ourselves into the mire of sin, He grieves over that disaster. When, in hardness of heart, we even hatefully oppose Him, He continues to feel for us. No wonder the “goodness of God” leads us to repentance (Rom. 2:4)! May we all say, “I will show compassion to others, because my Jesus first showed compassion to me” (1 John 4:19p).

Seasons of life

Quoted from my youngest brother, Ben, who is 10 years old btw, after showing him the pictures below... This is what he said: "Even eggs have a life of their own." Haha.. That's a good one.

Anyways, I want to take this opportunity to thank my friends who have been with me by my side. I did not utter a single word of what I've been going through. But you all came to find me or ask me how I am at the right time. When I really, really needed a friend... you guys (friends) came flocking in. Wow.. Must be the hands of God behind it. Thank you so much, guys! Thanks, God!

Here's some pics to spice up my day, and I hope yours too =)

Oh nooo!!! Save me!

All of these pictures reminded me- I had 4 eggs in total for today. Yum!

The battle belongs to the Lord! I need to get rid of all those 'dirts' that makes me unclean. Consecration-
—willing to do whatever, wherever and whenever God wants them to do (which is a pure weakness of mine) is a must to be at the battlefield. I forgive those 'lies'. I let go of the things that I shouldn't be holding on to. I break the power of darkness in Jesus Name. I choose to set my eyes and my heart on King Jesus!

Going for ThePlan09. (click on ThePlan09 if you want to know what it is) Ahhh... *excited-ness!*

Have a wonderful Raya break! Take care!

If only I can control my tongue

"If you think you are being religious, but can't control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and everything you do is useless. You must help needy orphans and widows and not let this world make you evil." The Book aka Bible
God, help me to control my tongue. Guard my tongue from slipping words that would not encourage others or will put someone down. Help me to show love and mercy to the people I meet each day, just as how You have shown me.

Blueberry crumble

Was contemplating between leaving or removing, leaving or removing my previous post on my results. I can't imagine a person or my friend who has done well, better than mine has to say.. Lol.. And compared to my results... What is mine?

So, conclusion..

I decided to....

Leave it. Why? Coz it is the work and the grace (good things I don't deserve) of God. There's no reason why I should feel bad or embarrassed if there's someone who has done better than me, definitely there will always be. But this is me. My standard. I may not be the best. But I'm doing God's best. I hope. Haha. There is no reason for me to feel ashamed. My results, I hope will be a testimony of God's undeserved grace that I really, really don't deserve with the amount of effort I put in sometimes. I have to admit that there are times when I do assignments last minute or procrastinate. I am ashamed of myself at times for my attitude of procrastination, but nevertheless, I am proud of my God.

Anyway, I found a new interest. I think...


I just found a pretty cool designer's cake website. http://cookingismypassion.blogspot.com/

Rocky sticks (My favourite) on cakes! Simple yet elegant.

Piggie cupcake? Haha! Pretty!

Or maybe I just love the designs?!?

Gotta give baking a real try... SOON!

Oven, here I come!!!

you're a star!


Having Coffee Jelly Frappucino at Starbucks Summit now. Waiting for the later class.

Anyway, results were out...
Summer 2009: Human Resource Management- A
Chemistry- B

A little disappointed for Chemistry. I wonder if anyone got an A for Chemistry. I wanna know who! =) If there is, a big congratz as you must have really really studied, understood every single possible facts and did very well! Chemistry was tough and a killer, but still thank God for giving me the strength to study till late nights, wisdom to grasp easily and awesome team mates who sail through storms with me.

I love God's Word especially in times when everything is against you, ( meeting assignments and projects due date seems impossible, not enough time to finish reading and understanding your textbooks for mid terms, finals, can't understand etc...) coz His Word gives me hope and encouragement. As I believe in His Word, and work (in this case study) as if I can finish whatever I think I can't finish in time, by faith I fix my mind and keep studying and studying or keep doing assignments even when it feels impossible to finish them... But as I study, God opens my mind and help me to understand fast and remember. And as I just keep doing my assignments believing I can finish it with God, at the end of the day, somehow whatever seems impossible is possible! Just have faith in God. And work/ study!

God's Word says: Faith without action (study) is dead. James 2:26

From the deepest depth of my heart, thanks God! I definitely couldn't have made it to the Dean's lists/ Academic Excellence Award for 3 semesters out of my 4 semesters in college. I am really, really amazed by You!

I hope these results ( at the bottom of this post)are good enough to glorify God. To me, it is God's grace, mercy and faithfulness that brought me through. I couldn't say more than God deserves the glory, honor and praise. My results may not be the best in ADP now, but I will work hard and try to be the best with God's help. I trust in Him that all things are possible. =)

Summer 2009- GPA: 3.3
Fall 2008- GPA: 3.5
Spring 2009- GPA: 4.0
Summer 2009- GPA: 3.5

So yeah, the results posted here are not meant to brag or whatever... but I hope to encourage all of you that really, with God, you can do all things!

Back to college,
