You know when i 1st saw this video , I really feel to the ground in reverance for the blessed sacrament. Something every christian take so lightly is something so adored by the youths in the video. Someone all christians take for granted but not these youths.
through these pass few months I struggle, I fall and i have yet to find him. But at one of the adoration services, I found this song so familiar, so close to my heart. I truely understood every line of it. I really miss HIM in my life for that few months .. but i know he is not far, he has never left me to carry my burden on my own. As this new year is about to start I pray that everyone of you out there will be able to find that GOD who is able to be there for you all the time like my GOD does.

Food is something people would view as a substance for one to eat and digest. Something to keep one alive so as to do their daily neccessities and fulfill their job obligations. However in my opinion i would like to say Food to me is a delicacy , something to be taken to enjoy.
What about you , do you eat to live of live to eat?
Remember one of my friend ever told me when i was in the hospital "in order to stay alive one must eat". To me i enjoy every minute of the time with the food i get to eat and taste. From the mere hawker centre food, or Kopitiam to the high class restaurants like Lawryes.
It is honourable to even get a chance to eat. Lets just stop our work for a minute and take alook at the people around us or even the world for that matter. How many children and people out there who needs food but young children or even adults like us waste the food.
It is a food for thought .. it really explains my size now .. been trying not to waste food. So would you do your part?

My mum had just returned home from hong kong and she was so caught up in the day to day stuff that she has hardly had chances to shop, relax or even take a look at the latest style and fashion in Hong Kong.
Thinking back it has already been few years since she has been flying to and fro Hong Kong and Singapore. Time seems to pass us by so fast we can hardly keep track of time. The only thing she could look forward to was her contract renewal , tons of experience and a higher increment if there was to begin with.
I wonder how many of us are like my mum. Some of us pour our hearts and soul into our job often at the expenseof ou leisure , friends, families and health. 12 - 14 hours a day spent on working. It is hardly possible to imagine how much we are really missing.
When i tell people that i meet i work from 8 -5 and my day comprises of more than work many would look at me with the "yeah right " face as though in disbelief.
I often meet up with friends and never fail to ask anyone of them how was their day. Recalling one occassion when i met one of my friend and his reply to me was "I just got home from work"
It was already 10:30pm in the night and i had just finished a game with my friends , dinner with my family and even went out for a shop. On other nights i would occupy myself with other hobbies of mine, PSP, tv or even a stroll at the park. Felt a bit sorry for my friend though .
Well we do need to recharge ourselves admist all our busy schdule especially during weekends.
Having to wake up early and have fun the whole day is the best one can ask for. Its the weekends. Having a healthy work and life balance is something one should always never fail to adopt. Too much of work or leisure is never good. Work Smart, Play hard.
Life's too short to make ourselves a slave to the daily grind
With respect to living life to the fullest how can you my dearest friend do so.
Maybe here are some suggestions which you can adopt.
1stly interacting with people around us more often, from the cleaner lady in school or work to the canteen aunty or even the security guards at your condo or the waitress you meet. Positive interaction boost our moods and temperment.
2ndly, be thankful for the things that go right each day. an if things do not go as it seems like a jam on the road or a hold up while waiting for buses home, take it as a time for your personal reflections
3rdly, persue your passion. Do something you like. follow your heart and do what you think you should do.
Finally some us need to learn to forgive ourselves and others . We all make mistakes, so instead of playing these less-then-positive encounters over and over again in our minds, its best to learn from them and move on. The trick is to focus - on living your life to the fullest making everyday fulfiling rather then harping on the past.
Legendary actor James Dean once said, " Dream as if you live forever, live as if you'll die today."

Reports of a 69 years old hawker assulted by a 53 years old man was sentenced to a two and the half years imprisionment. Mr AH, independent and a swinging bachelor, was seen beaten up by a Mr IM, a bouncer, at a hawker center. Reports that Mr IM suspected Mr AH of bullying his nephew, a fellow hawker.
Many stood around to look at the spectcle but few stopped the fight. Those who tried to stop were knocked down like pinballs.
Scenes of Mr AH being punched and kicked along the corridors to the exit of Bedok Interchange hawker centre. Fighting was never cease as it lead on to the driveway and leading to the carpark. Mr IM did not cease his punches and blows till the custom officers arrived and took him down by force.
Mr AH was left semi - conscious and was rushed to the hospital where he stayed for nearly 3 months. Though he is now discharged. Mr AH is wheelchair bound. Family members took care of him and even his sister had quit her job to take care of him. His brother in law had to take up more jobs in order to place food on the table for the family.
For the rest of his life, Mr AH will be a financial Liability to his family.
With reference to this article, Is this sentence too light ? What are your views?
Is the sentence too light? This question is not up to me to decide but the judge who sentence the perpetraitor. However if a stand has to be made, i would say that the sentence MR IM gets for his act would be way too light.
Defending Lawyer of Mr IM mentioned that he reacted at the "spur of the moment" and did not know what he was doing. However i beg to differ as if one is able to inflict such a pain and injury to someone at the spur of the moment, would be an anger that is kept within one for a period of time?
Taking a step back and thinking of ourseleves. Are we at times like Mr IM ? Reacting on our emotions and shutting our minds to think?
What really causes us to be so angry? Research has shown that anger is casued by 2 possibilities. 1) Frustration : Not getting what we want, especially if we were expecting to get it
2) Feeling that others do not respect us or care how we feel.
Why are people now a days more violent and angry ?
There are many causes that leads people to be more violent and angry nowadays. One can never be able to pinpoint what exactly leads to the cause of anger.
Personal or financial problems could be one of the causes. With the recent happenings in our society, the downfall of the Limon Brothers and many financial Institutions, parents or adults would find it hard to keep their job and frustration built up would lead to violence being potrayed in other ways.
Unsettling memories from the past could be triggers to one being angry. For example, children coming from broken families or families with parents being abusive would leave a scar imprinted in the minds of their young. Children being abandon by their biological parents would also lead to one being angry with their past. Even unhappy childhoods would also lead to anger being built inside of oneself
How and what can we stop such act ?
As the Information and Communication Technology is on the rise, People should use this as a form of communication to many youngs and educate them of the neccessity of being restrainted.
In view of this above case, people should learn self control and think before one act.
Are you ready to bear the consequences of your actions ?
Having yourself lend up in such a situation because you are just standing up for someone,
Is the source in which you are getting this information from reliable?
What happened to him?
Where did he see such an act?
Did you see it with your own eyes?
Do you have any prove?
Is violence only the best way to resolve the problem?
Lastly do always remember to :

The past few weeks has passed us by just so fast.
Even Singapore hosted the Formular One race just flash us by like the wind.
Our heavy weight financial giants have been falling trumendously.
Stock markets plummeted just as speedily as anyone can imagine.
Queues formed quickly outside the American Insurance Association soon after the announcement of the fall in their big brother American International Group.
Big investors like Warren Buffet and Mr Oei Hong Leong quickly starts to pick up falling shares only to sell them after it rises the following day.
News of Melamined - laced Milk scandel spread like wild fired leaving Singaporeans in a frantic as they thrown away suspected products.
Students taking their exams, burning midnight oil, and parents runing amock stress over childrens exams and the results .
With so many things zooming by us so fast let's remember to always take a step back and take stock of the SMALL THINGS in our lives. Those real things that makes up our inner being. - our friends, our family, our health and faith.
We get so caught up in the BIG things in live that we neglect these Priorities in our lives. Before we know it, children have all grown up, parents all growing old with grey hair they always try to hide and we would soon regret that we did not spend enough time with them.
There was once a boy, he asked his dad, " DAD ! how much are you paid per hour?
and the dad who was astonished at his question replied, " $ 50 my child!"
two weeks later the boy came back to his dad and passed him $50 He ASked , " Can i buy an hour of your time, please?"
He apprently skipped his recess and his meals to save up his allowance to buy time with his father.
I do hope that is not happening in any of your houses . One may think of building up his business and career so badly that he neglects his time with his family. OR another may think of working their ass off to stay in houses along the orchard roads or drive posh cars so as to attract everyones attention.
Author Robert once wrote "enjoy the little things in life for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things."
If you are going through a bad patch in your life than here is what Helen Keller an inspirational Blind, deaf and Dumb said," keep your face to the sunshine , you will not see the shadows"
And for all fellow friends who have tried their best in their exams and even in life but failed, here is something Mary Anne would like to say to you," Courage does not always roar, sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end the day saying.... i wil try again tomorrow."
Lets just take a look back at our lives have we really slowed down a little to find time to encourage the people around us? IF you are type who is quick to shoot your mouth off in a less-than-sensitive manner, a gentle turn around would always be worth a try. The would is going through a rough time right now and a less negative attitude could make this world a better place.
As MOther Teresa says, "Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truely endless. "
With this i will leave you with one of my common phrase, " the choice is in your hands, choose your path wisely and walk it down bravely. Don't ever look back for that was the path you chose on your own"

well thought about a verse i read from matthew 14:22
Then he made the disciples get into the boat and precede him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone. Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it.
During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea.
When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. "It is a ghost," they said, and they cried out in fear. At once Jesus spoke to them, "Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid." Peter said to him in reply, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water." He said, "Come." Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw how (strong) the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" After they got into the boat, the wind died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, "Truly, you are the Son of God."
Well in life we are like the little boat traveling in the sea.. the Sea is our problems our worries. At times these waves are calm and at times they can b stormy. Well when we really take the step to walk into the waters to face the storm and set our eyes fixed on him is when we will not faulter. HE is our light the one who will guide us through our problems; the light house that every struggling boat look for in the storm.
Why then did he choose to let us walk on waters alone, he nv left us alone. he was always there to hold our hands . it is whether we choose to hold his hand and walk or focus and turn our eyes on him to walk in his direction.

Started my thinking this few days,
Took a step back and thought about somethings that happened
Well i guess i am enlightened.
1st things 1st.. don forget i am a wild weed, I cannot be pluck out nor can you destroy me. Only HE has the power to do so.
I will survive through the storm. Coz you know why.. HE is with me.
So Satan and all you people who try to block my vision from HIM .. get behind me.
2nd thing.. I accept your answer to me. Thanks for telling it to me but I have my piece of mind to say so please pardon my longwindedness. I am not asking you to change your answer or decision .
Why do you not dare to tell me all the things they said..?
a) coz it was not your decision . it was instigated by them ?
b) you still care for me that you do not want to tell me. I know you care coz i can feel it
Half the time you act strong to put on a front so people think you are strong.
How can I tell , Sis I read you like a book.
Why are all these people telling me to stay away from you? Who are they? Why is it time and time again people are standing btw us telling us to stay away and pulling us apart? There must be something about us that cannot be separated n that they feel inferior about. Isn't it?
Come on man ! the person ask me stay away from you let you mix with your own group of friends. hmm then shouldnt they too stay away too.. as long as you are older or younger do not mix with them must be your age one you know . (haha lol)
You know that day sitting at the table, they blammed everything unto me
1) you doing bad , grades flung
Was told to stay away from you . coz i am the cause of it. . Girl do you realli think i am the cause of this? your CHOICE my dear CHOICE.
Why are they telling me all these stuff when they barely know me?
A matured adult would not or should i say NEVER say such stuff to a complete stranger without even knowing how he or she feels. Throughout the conversation I can tell that person barely knows us and what went on in our lives and what more about what i went through .
so my question to you .. is the person who talked to me matured? what more your so called youth leader.. !
So that person then trying to get into the good shoes of you ? or your love ones..? or for $$ ?
I know you . i know you listen to people What more you listen to people coz they are of higher authority / status. I dont blame you coz you are young. .. I know you want to get the love care and concern from the people around. You love to be loved but you have to think for yourself. Is this what you really want for yourself ?
Too much to comprehend girl. It is ok . think it through slowly. Giving up doesn't mean you are weak , It means you are strong enough to let go.
I will not give up our friendship never. Sorry guess you failed or your so called friends failed to push me away. BUT i will let you go your path. Will stand from afar and watch you grow.
To end off.. True Love prevails, When all things are wiped away just know that i will be standing there for you .
Love you always

Matthew Chapter 18
Dealing With Sin in the Church
15 "If a brother or sister sins, [a] go and point out the fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' [b]17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
19 "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
Well this passage hits me a lot. Why coz the portion where it says "If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector." it does not mean hate them or what it means to love them more. Why coz these are the people who people do not like or may have hurt people more and they represent people who hurt us, hate us and at times wanting to hide behind a mask. So i guess the more you hate me the more i will pray and love you. Once twice throw me down and hurt me. I'll still love you. If you shunt me away , i will just stand from afar and care for you. I'm not God I can try to learn from him.

Ask, Seek, Knock
7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; those who seek find; and to those who knock, the door will be opened.
9 "Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Everything seems so different. You , your words, hmm it hurts. you know it. Why do you impose your hurts on me? You want me to feel what you going through ? Well guess i am just your spare tyre. When you need me you will call .. when you don need me GET LOST ERICA that is what you would say.
When you were down I picked you up cared for you. All i did was to leave and hope you would grow I did for my own good .. but what did i get in return. More hurt by you .
Monday, August 25, 2008
1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in someone else's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from the other person's eye.
6 "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.
Why do you do what others tell you to do? why do you not make your own choice?
Sunday, August 24, 2008

you want time
you want attention
I try i give what exactly do you want
yeah prob is that i am not able to be there physically with you anymore
as often as i use to be
you think i want this to happen?
what is wrong with you ?
I sat down and i reflected since the day we got back
was it you or me who has change.
for the pass few days i know clearly it is not me
it is you ba
I tried smsing you keeping you informed of what is happening
call you when i come back from meeting immediately .. talk half way you sleep
I asked you out and pushed away another outing for you , you made me wait whole day no reply no call. God know what happen to you .
and in between when i do not sms you
you do not even sms me back.
may be you have found new friends
friends who can give you the attention you want
I am sorry i cant
but i am trying
why cant you see
why do you expect so much from me ?
I guess this time you realli need to ask yourself what do you want
What is seriously wrong with you .. are you pmsing or anything.
maybe i should have anticipated your demands on me when i left school.
yeah is it all my fault
I am not good enough a sister.
Well i will take my step back from now ba.
You found your friends you are close to go ba.
you need your space and friends who would give you more time and attention than i can go ba
My advice to you nowadays doesnt seem to go in
you have change...
i tried ... gave up things for you time for you and even people who mean loads to me. you left me there ... what is the meaning of this
I call you don pick up . Who is this sister ?
Tuesday, July 08, 2008
but when i fall, you stand and watch
love and care , are they for real
all despair, thats what I'll not will
I'm tired, I'm broken
I'm lost, I'm Shattered
Leaving a place so nice to a place so hearten
I'm smiling, I'm happy
but not for the reason
the truth is I'm happy coz i know you will grow
But I am not happy where I am.
Each time people ask a false answer given

What have been going through your head
You asked for another chance.
I gave to you, you blew it.
If that person was not you i would have walked out
I carried you
I watched over you
the happy times, sad times and teary times
I shared all with you
I thought you knew
the things I like
the path I took
the things I hate most
why do you still choose to do?
You are young
You are still growing
but does that give you the chance to do these things ?
It is not about age any more
It is caring about the ones who love you
It is Loving those who mean alot to you
Should i Let go?
Should I Stop?
Should we just go our separate ways?
I thought I left you will grow
I thought you will be a Good girl
People may know I left coz of environmental change
but you of all people should know why I left
You say you will mature
YOu say you will grow
YOu say you will be good
You say you will not do things i Do not like
But Why ?
I wanted a sister
I wanted it badly
I am hurt when thiings turn out this way
I love you but how long more can my love last if hurts overwhelms my deepest soul.
I'll let you go if time permits me so, to care, to love and to grow
Forever you will be my dear but from far I'll watch you here.

At the age of 36 Jim had completely crossed out all his goals he set out to achieve on white card. Jim once said, "There are 86,400 seconds in a day. It's up to you to decide what to do with them." Jim has authored books, given many motivational speeches all over the country, hosted weekly television broadcast and has even appeared on The Tonight Show and The Cosby Show.
"I want to do other things, learn about other professions. I refuse to limit myself to whatever boundaries you may think surround a coach's position. Very simply, I enjoy diversity", says Jim in a press conference. Each and every new challenge only proving that his talents were endless. Jim had the "I can do that" attitude and live each moment of his life to the fullest.
Jim Valvano worked hard to motivate, stimulate, entertain and inspire anyone that entered his life. The world was similar to his basketball team and he wanted everyone to be winners. In doing this he hoped that people would learn from the way he lived his life.
Metastatic Adenocarcinoma would prove the toughest hurdle that this coach had ever faced. The doctor had informed him that he only had a year to live. In Jim's last interviews he announced that he wanted to help every cancer patient.
He spent the final ten months of his life giving the world personal insights into the life of a cancer patient in the hope that he could bring some attention to the disease that affects millions. He wasn't afraid to let other people see his weakening body or even the tears that shed when he spoke of his certain death. He knew that his body would lose the battle against cancer, but his vibrant spirit was the gift that he would leave behind.
Jim Valvano is an example of one individual that can influence this world with the never give up attitude. So, research an idea and plan and expect success & just do it! Live life to the fullest and enjoy every second!!
