Continuation...

Exams ended without candidates giving sighs of relief, because most of us did not push ourselves to study like nerds anyway.

And yup, today's my 20th Birthday! Wow, I'm 20, I still cannot believe it because I look 6 years younger still, haha! So now's the time to 'maturise' and toughen up, for the challenges that I have to face in India can be awful.

I would like to firstly thank God for creating me - Psalms 139.

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

16
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.


And also a BIG BIG thank you to my junior Joan for planning this bday celebration. So nicey of you!!! Sah good daughter, haha! And also to CF juniors, thanks for taking the time to celebrate with me.

And to my beloved batch mates who have tolerated and are still tolerating with my irritatingness, congratulations for your patience and perseverance! Don't worry, I'll be leaving most of you all soon, except for Loony, Carol, Charan, Elaine, Deeban, John. *laughs evilly*

Back to pictures.

We had a birthday celebration also. So far, I had celebrated my birthday thrice already. One during farewell, one during CF and another one last night. One more celebration to come with my family!!! I'm a blessed guy indeed!


When any of you come to Tampin, let me recommend you some cool stuffs there:

1) There's one dessert shop in one of the lorongs in Tampin town, their bubuchacha is *slurps*, yummy!

2) Restoran Pang Joon Chan, they serve both Chinese and Western food, you have to try their Mongolian Chicken (too bad didn't take a shot of it) and Chicken Chop. The best thing is cheap dao! You seriously can't get that price anywhere!

3) This is cool. Tampin Town has free Wifi! So bring your apple products and laptops to the town!

4) Tampin Gift Shop which is located in Tampin Square. Here you'll get really nice gifts and you'll get to hear a Punjabi lady speaking mandarin.

But if you wanna shop, better come to KL la. LOL

Lots to cherish...

Last week was a special week for me. Besides celebrating Good Friday & Easter Sunday, it was also the last week for my family and I worshiping in Living Water AOG, that's what made it memorable.

Farewells have never been easy for me personally. However, this time I did not shed a tear, perhaps the trials and storms of life taught me not to be emotionally driven .

I would like to thank the youths for being so thoughtful. What marveled me the most was how all of you guys put this video together perfectly ON TIME! Interesting interview with Li Wen of course, who knows in future there will really be a L channel, how cool is that!

I also would like to express my gratitude to those who have made it for our farewell celebration. To those who performed, only God knows how touched I was!

Harder times in future, but STRONGER

While others gave their sighs of relief after the placements were announced, Manipalians were still in the dark about their actual placements, either in Manipal or Mangalore campus.

Last Tuesday, after the Kannada Test, the anticipated moment of the Manipalians finally arrived. All of us were actually hoping to get the same uni with our 'gangs', and it didn't really matter which campus we will be placed in.

I will be placed in Manipal together with Loon Han, Elaine, Carol and Charan. Frankly, I was down in the mouth initially, knowing that not all of us will be going to the same uni and we have to part again, and also because it's USD 500 la...Haha...So I'm praying for an increase, do join me in prayer too. :)

I kesian Kiu, the only Chinese Dentistry guy there. But I told him to think positively, he has all the Chinese girls there and we only have Elaine (who already belongs to ahem ahem), lol.



I came across this song by Mandisa (former contestant of American Idol) - Stronger. Wow, I was so blessed to hear this song, only God knows how I need to hear this. It reminded me of how I struggled through the exams last year and how hard it was for me to remain strong in God. Well, I'm pretty sure I'll be going through more of that later on, and this part of the lyrics, I will always keep in mind.

Try and do the best you can
Hold on and let Him hold your hand
And go on and fall into the arms of Jesus
Lift your head it's gonna end
Even when you just can't feel Him
I promise you that He still cares

Perhaps some of you are going through stress, pressure, hurts, but like what the lyrics say "Hold on just a little bit longer", because He knows that this is gonna make you stronger.

So true, if I have not gone through the tough times in KTT, I will not have testimonies to share with my juniors, and will not be who I am today.
