The camp was awesome.There is no other word to describe it.It is the shortest camp that I have ever been to.This year PlanetUni camp is titled "Marked". It's the second camp that they ever had. I came back after a long day from classes , dropped my bag and rushed to get ready as I was informed that the bus was leaving at 6 pm on Friday.I came home at 5.00 pm in a rush.It was all good I packed up and headed to Blackwood Hall at Monash Clayton campus which was the meeting point.Waited for the bus to arrived and hopped on the bus. I felt so lost as I only knew a few of them and I don't even know the names of the familiar faces.The journey took more or less than one hour.
Session 1 started not too long after we arrived. Pastor Matt Fielder preached about how we as a generation to be run after God. The session was very engaging.Streams of tear we pour as Pastor Matt shared his heart out.There rest of the session were marvellous. Senior Pastor Sam Evans preached about running the race for God.I have heard this message countless times.However, the message reminded me about how have I been living my life.Truly if I haven't look back I would have ran much further.At the last session, God spoke to me.I ask God "Why is my life so stagnant?" and I blame my past , hurts and pain. However, God has taken it all away.I was unfruitful with my life.Simply plain lazy.I just refuse to budge as I am very comfortable where I am.Nothing could possibly change if I don't make a step to make things change.
I feel very refresh and less confused about the hope I have in Him.I just need to trust Him more.I need to live the life that He wants me to and not the life that I want to live.
Here are some pictures of the camp.

There was a World wide survey of " Most Embarrassing Moment in Human Life" and the final three incidents are .... Third Place It was the day before my eighteenth birthday. I was living at home, but my parents had gone out for the evening, so I invited my girlfriend over for a romantic night alone. As we lay in bed after making love, we heard the telephone ringing downstairs. I suggested to my girlfriend that I give her a piggy-back ride to the phone. Since we didn't want to miss the call. We didn't have time to get dressed. When we got to the bottom of the stairs, the lights suddenly came on and a whole crowd of people yelled "SURPRISE!". My entire family, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and all of my friends were standing there ! My girlfriend and I were frozen to the spot in a state of shock and embarrassment ! for what seemed like an eternity. Since then, no-one in my family has planned a surprise party again.
Second Place (a lady) While in line at the bank one afternoon, my kid decided to release some pent-up energy and started to run amuck. I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other patrons. I told her that if she didn't start behaving herself right now, she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as threatening, "If you don't let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee(dick) last night!". The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange. Even the tellers stopped what they were doing ! I mustered the last of my dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow. The last thing that I heard as the door closed behind me were the screams of laughter. And the Winner Is.....First place This one actually happened at Harvard University in October last year. In a biology class, the professor was discussing the high glucose levels found in semen. A young female (freshman), raised her hand and asked, "If I understand what you are saying, there is a lot of glucose in male semen, as in sugar?" "That's correct." responded the professor, going on to add much statistical data. Raising her hand again, the sweet young thing asked, "Then why doesn't it taste sweet?". After a stunned silence, the whole class burst out laughing, the poor girl turned bright red and as she realized exactly what she had inadvertently said (or rather implied), she picked up her books without a word and walked out of the class, and never returned. However, as she was going out of the door, the professor's reply was a classic. Totally straight-faced, he answered her question, "It doesn't taste sweet because the taste-buds for sweetness are on the tip of your tongue and not in the back of your throat! "
*Thanks Syed for sharing this, it had me with fits of laughter"
21 ago someone was born and 21 years later he is a grown man.
Happy Birthday Victor Ng!!!
Dinner was at Hard Rock Cafe , a place that is filled with antiques. Every corner you turn has an antique stuck on the wall.The food was awesome and affordable as I have a large burger called Legendary Burger.It was legendary.However,I will go back there to try the barbecue ribs.Victor and Tammy has it and it looks delightful.
A groupie with everyone who was at the dinner.
The people that I was seated with
Victor and his buff day cake with sparkles.
The party did not end there, we proceededto Little Burke St which is where Chinatown is situated to a club called Blink @ Bass Lounge.I never knew there was a club in Chinatown.The club was underground.A typical Asian club. However, they have like rooms that you can linger around with your friends. Not the the typical table that you would have to cramp with other people.
The man himself and me
Surprise!! I meet an pre-u classmate of mine who is working there - Joanne
The brotherhood. Rick , me and A groupie with Yu Yee. Marcus, me , Vincent and Yu Yee.
Me , Charms, and Vincent I don't know who took this picture and i cant recall what happened seems like Charms wanted to hit me or something like that.
Every time when I listen to this worship song , my eyes will get teary.It just speak of how I want to be with Him.In his presence,I really long for.He is my everything.This song is written by an Indonesian Worship band called GMB which stands for Giving My Best.
The lyrics of the song:
Dekat padaMu itu rinduku Setiap kataku Kau pun menunggu Tak kusangka kutemukan satu kasih yang abadi Kini kudatang dan kubawa hidupku
Memandang wajahMu Mengikuti kebaikanMu Mengejar hadirMu dalam hidupku
Membawa sembahku Menyatakan kebesaranMu Mengejar hadirMu dalam hidupku
I know many of you are eagerly waiting for this post.My apologies that I kept all of you waiting.I was busy with lots of thing, wont go into the details.Yes!! I have new toys and I am showing it off!!
Finally I own a camera, I have been in want of it since forever.I actually wanted the Panasonic DMC FX-7.However , to my dismay it is no longer in production and its replace with a better and newer model. Behold!! The DMC FX-12 !!!
Overall it is an excellent camera for point and shoot users.A lightweight easy to use camera is what a normal point and shoot camera would want.Hence it also comes with additional features such as video recording functions.The Leica lens make a vast difference compared with cameras that does not has it.I am very satisfied with this new toy.
I travel alone and on public transport a lot.So I really need something to keep me accompany during the periods of my travel.Hence I bought Greenly The Pod!!!
Greenly is a second generation I-Pod Nano.He is the 4 GB version that allows me to store up to 1000 songs.That's if each song is less than or equals to 4 GB.Now I don't feel so lonely any more in my long journeys to campus and the city.It has serve me very well!!!
Needless to say !! A good game!! Cost me a bomb!!! I miss my cetak rompak!!!!
Blessed Happy Easter to all of you out there.Easter is something I would never forget.Not just because it was the day of resurrection of Jesus.It is also a day where I was saved.A day where I gave my life to Jesus.
7 years ago.My life was practically at the edge.Living as if there were no tomorrow, aimlessly wondering with not direction.I always wanted to end my life back then.I hated it so much as everything around me falls apart.It was living hell for me.I can never comprehend why do I have to go through life like that.Nothing was fair to me.
Home was never like home.Mum was always working and Dad is away most of the time because of his work.Never had family time with anyone.The only time when my mum talks to me is to nag me to study hard.Dad never really talks to me.Parents were constantly fighting over every under the sun.It was that faithful day when all hell broke loose.My dad walked out.To me it was the end of everything.Nothing could hold us together any more.I gave up on everything.
April 9th 2000 was the day that things began to change for me and my family.It was not a one off thing but it was process.It was the day that I gave up trying to feel alive and gave it to the Lord.It was that faithful day that I thank Jesus who nailed my sin upon that cross.As of that day ,I am what I am today.
I will remember what he did at Calvary.I will always remember the Cross that he was nailed upon.The fact that I worship a God that is alive keep me knowing that I am in hands of the almighty.

Whoa...now that is an encouraging and powerful testimony. Keep holding on dude...
Every year a charity run is organised to help kids.This year I have the privilege to take part in the run.It cost me AUD 65 to participate , where half of the money goes to charity for the kids.The other half is to purchase the run T-shirt sponsored by Nike.There were several category that you are able to take part in.I took the 3.4 Km men run. The other categories are like 15.2 Km run but I don't think that I cut out for that.
1st of April was the race day.I woke up with a cloudy weather and my nose was running on the same day.I was still sick but I really wanted to go.I had a power breakfast that packed me with the proteins and carbohydrate that I need.Then off I took the train to the city to meet up with Charmaine and Marcus.Coincidentally Kayleen was there too.
Marcus , Myself and Charmaine.
3.4 Km category took a while to start as other categories started first.So we waited for it to start and in the mean time we took some pictures.
I was really bored at the starting line.
Kayleen was bored too.
The very sexy Uncle Lim.
This is my race number, try reading it in cantonese.
The started and we ran out hearts out. Half way through I ran out of breath, my nose were running faster than I did.Marcus overtook me.On the uphill slope I could not even breath my nose was stuck with mucus and my throat was all clogged up with phlegm.There was so little air going to my brain really got me a bad headache.Still, I was able to finish it , I am so proud of myself...
Look! I got 963! Not too bad eh!!
The bunch Looks with green eyes at Marcus! His has a cool race number.

Have you wondered how it feels when it's all over Wondered how it feels when you just have to start anew Never knowing where you're going When you face a brand new day It used to be that way Now I just close my eyes and say
*I just want to breathe again Learn to face the joy and pain Discover how to laugh a little , cry a little Live a little more I just wanna face the day Forget about the woes of yesterday Maybe if I hope a little Try a little more I'll breathe again*
Starting out again is never easy Disappointments come and go but life still moves on With a bit of luck It's a brand new start That might just work my way No need to walk away Don't want to live on life replay
This is a beautiful song.It really relates to me about how I feel.Just want to wake up and smell the fresh air once again.A big thanks to Sheng Mae for sharing the song to me.I am so glad she did.I am currently in a middle of an assignment so I will update in the next few days.
