At this point I feel finding a job can be demotivating.

They either want a lady, or long term ones.

I want to go to gym, everyone turns a deaf ear to it. I have to do push ups and make do with the dumbbells(which are rusted and not heavy enough) at home. And run to the nearest field to do pull ups.

I have to wash socks that aren't mine. They don't have to wash them and they're earning $$$. I have to wash them because I'm unemployed.

Freedom is being able to do anything without being accountable to anyone. I guess I was so accustomed to that, that switching it back can be strenuous.

Maybe I am whining because of the unfavourable replies I got today.

Or maybe because I'm worried about the future. What if, I can't provide for you, that one day you feel, you can't see our future, like how some felt and did what they think was best.

*Laughs* Who is the insecure one now?🙋

Job hunting

Called up the dental clinic today and yes they are looking for a dental assistant!

I was asked to pass the resume to them but....I don't know how to write a resume. Sooo noob.

So I have to wait for Ken and John to be back to help me with my resume. Yes, John also has experience in writing resume. He is starting work on November 1st at MidValley. So geng... Jealous

With fingers crossed, let's hope that I can get a job ASAP.

Brain problem


Yesterday dad preached in FGA and we had a sumptuous Malaysian brunch there. After church I had a long nap. When I woke up I read my whatsapp msg by Kak Nad and she even sent me a DM in Instagram. She sounded very worried.

She screenshot my SPA resume and oh my goodness I actually key-d my PMR result wrongly! I forgot to put in Mathematics and I put in 2 subjects of Kemahiran Hidup. What was I thinking! Previously I rechecked that countless times and never did it cross my mind till Kak Nad pointed that out to me.

I couldn't call SPA because it was Sunday yesterday. So in the evening I went for the Loh family gathering in my late grandma's house. Met up with my nephews and nieces that I don't really know. But since I am more senior so I had to be more outgoing la. So basically I had to ask them questions and they just gave me a word or two answers. Very one way conversation la. Come to think of it, I reacted the same way when I was a teen so I completely understand how they felt.

So this morning I called up SPA and to my relief the officer said that PMR result did not really matter. She asked to make that correction only after I got the interview, because if I were to resubmit now I will be far behind and may miss the earliest interview.

Thank God for Kak Nad for pointing out my mistake and also for the SPA officer for being kind enough to tell me what to do next.

Of course, as a punishment for me being so careless, I had to wash the toilet. The biggest one, the one everyone uses, therefore the dirtiest one. After washing I felt as though I just came out from prison. 'Carelessness always comes with a price', a new saying I just created, speaking out of experience.

Church discipline

Today's passage is taken from 2 Thes 3.

3 As for other matters, brothers and sisters,pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you.We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate.10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. 13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.

14 Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

17 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand,which is the distinguishing mark in all my letters. This is how I write.

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

In it Paul addressed a particular issue - church discipline. Many of us are unsure of how to deal with certain problematic people in church, or how should the church leadership handle them. This passage can serve as a guide.

This passage gives specific direction on the nature of the church's response to someone who deliberately refuses to follow God's word, expecting to benefit from the fellowship with God's people while being unwilling to participate in church matters.

I do not think what Paul said were mere suggestions, but rather they carried the weight and authority of a judge which he enforced. As you see in v6 'But we COMMAND you...'

We learned that in the Thessalonian church many were acting very disorderly.  Some were acting parasitic, sapping the generosity of other believers (v8). Some were sluggish, unwilling to work but loved to jaga tepi kain orang (v11). Oh, how true, we still see them in our churches today!

Paul told them 3 ways/steps to deal with church discipline.

1) v6 and v14 instruct the rest of the church to 'withdraw' and 'not keep company' with such a person. Paul was asking the church to disfellowship disobedient Christians in order to produce shame. I personally think this works. Whenever my friends desert me, I often question myself have I been a bummer these days and it makes me want to change for the better.

2) Personal confrontation. This letter was directed to all the Thessalonian believers, including the culprits Paul referred to in chapter 3. So this served as a warning to them personally to reexamine their lives and do things right this time. Like how Paul asked the sluggards to 'work in quietness and eat their own bread' (v12).

3) Nevertheless, Paul added two crucial words of caution. He reminded the brethren that these people needed help. He urged not to grow weary in doing good (v13). He also cautioned them to limit their disciplinary withdrawal. 'Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother' (v15). All disciplinary action on this person should always be done with LOVE and concern, praying for his restoration.

I love how the letter ended with so much compassion and grace. It is so characteristic of Him to always clean up our dirty mess. He first deals with the sin and then he never hesitates to give us another chance. How beautiful!

As you already know, I'm BFG. Didn't know there is an abbreviation for the term back for good until Ayu told me about it. Sorry I am too cina to know of its existence.

It's day 6 back here in home sweet home. The first few days were spent on hosting my 3 friends Jane John and Chia Min, registering with MDC, submitting forms to KKM, filling online forms from SPA and reporting to JPA.

Yeah we even met up with Lynthia and Lit Wen! Boy it was a year back that we last met! We met up at MidValley and had Sushi Zanmai, before we proceeded to chill at her condo. The interior design is basically white but everything in it screams modern! Love it.

Of course I didn't want to miss the chance to meet my boo on the same day she touched down Malaysia from Japan. Had a hearty dinner at Secret Recipe, plus a short but a most happiest time together, before we bid farewell when the rain became emotional and started to pour.

Fast forward to today, I'm back to my sedentary lifestyle again. Wanted to clear some stuffs from the room but big brother has stomach upset. He took a MC and now he's just lying on the bed like a foetus in a mother's womb, occasionally groaning in pain. So you tell me lah how to pack the room when there is a sick person sleeping there, besides who can stand the temptation of lying down on my cosy smelly bed?!

So I succumbed to the devil's call, I'm going to sleep now. Don't worry, my mum will wake me up once she's back from somewhere I don't know. So long, Zzzzz.
