Another semester starts tomorrow.

Can't believe it's the end of winter holidays. 3 weeks just like a flash. Well it has been a good break for me though and I hope it was a good break for you too! *if it's relevant to you* =P

So tomorrow will be the beginning of a new semester, new adventure, new challenge. I'm actually quite excited about it. Don't know why.

Maybe because I'm entering my final year now.

Maybe because I wanna avenge for my disappointment of one of my result where I missed 2 marks to get a Distinction. It still pains me a little when I think of it. I'm sure this pain will inspire me to do better next sem.

One of my strengths have always been bouncing back from disappointments. I always come back stronger.

So wish me luck for the new semester. In Christ, I can! =)

Anyway, just wanna share this song with you. I have been quite addicted to this song lately and admiring these 2 sweet pretty girls, Jayesslee! =P

Curry mee!!!

What is your favourite hawkers food?

For me, curry mee is definitely one of them! Well, it is also known as curry laksa in other places (most places actually) and internationally. In Penang, it's known as curry mee because it clashes with our unique asam laksa. *And I actually don't really like asam laksa. Weird for a Penangite to say that right? I love coconut milk and I'll take anything lemak over asam anytime!*

Made curry mee for the 1st time. Yum! Super success not because I am pro, but because the paste was super awesome. *Nowadays cooking is not a big deal lar....all also instant packet tipu one.*

Combine ice skating outing tomorrow with Northington lifegroup. It's been a while since I last ice skated here. Can't wait! =D

Revival starts from us.

This post is a follow up on what happened on the 9th of July. We all know what happened. Don't need for further elaboration. However, what do you see in these pictures?

People whom were physically challenged were there.

This woman, 65 years old, took a bus by herself down to KL to make her stand.

Police brutally firing tear gas towards the brave crowd who stood for their country.

Police beating up and arresting this helpless citizen for his conviction.

This is the most touching of all: The Malays sat down to pray for Malaysia when the police started firing towards them.

What do you see? If these images don't move you, or stir you up, you really gotta ask yourself about your own conviction. It's funny how people can still complain that because of this rally, they did not get to enjoy their weekend shopping or they did not get to make business, when these people out there were fighting for the future of Malaysia. This just shows plain IGNORANCE. Yes, people can be so ignorant and selfish. No sense of gratitude or appreciation whatsoever. All they know is to complain.

And saddest thing is when Christians also make a mockery of these whole thingy, saying that this rally is silly or a waste of time. It just breaks my heart when Christians do that. Fair enough if your conviction is not to participate in this, and I totally respect that. But to mock people for gathering peacefully and standing for what is right is just ridiculous.

And we claim that we worship the God of righteousness and justice, yet we cannot differentiate between a righteous act and an evil act. Yet we fail to stand up for justice when it matters. When other people from all religious background can do it, we failed. If the Malays could risk their safety to gather on the streets to pray for the country, if the disabled and the elderly people could make their stand despite all the danger and obstacles, what more us? The young, energetic people who claims to be the children of God.


It's time that we also make our stand, and make a difference. Revival and change starts from us. If we're going to continue to just remain silent with no actions, we can forget about any changes, or revival.

I totally believe in prayers. And yes, we need to have faith. But it's also time we take more action.

"14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?" -James 2:14

Doa Untuk Malaysia

If you are a Malaysian, this post is for you.

Are you sick of all the dirty politics, the corruption and the abuse of power going on in our country? Honestly, I'm seriously sick of it, and any true Malaysians would feel the same way. I'm not interested in who is right or wrong, or which party is ruling the country. I just want a better Malaysia, a corruption-free country because I love Malaysia.

If you studied Marketing before, you would learn about the 80-20 rule. That only 20% of your buyers are heavy buyers while 80% are actually light buyers. And that applies in our everyday life. Isn't it? That 20% of the church people will do 80% of the work. That majority of people would only complain and do nothing while those who actually do something are the minority. I see this everywhere, every time.

And this applies to Malaysians. That majority of us would just complain and complain about our government, the politics and all. But how many of us actually do something about it?

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that all of us gotta be politicians or something. But how many of us actually pray for our country? Or play our part in voting during elections? It's little things like this that makes a big difference. You can say "Aiyah...what can we do? Sure loose one lah. BN sure win one." or "I'm just fed up with Malaysia. I can't be bothered. Malaysia hopeless lah" or you can say "Yes, I'm gonna play my part and believe for a change."

And so I did.

Went to this Bersih gathering in Victoria Square today. The crowd was roughly 160 people. Not bad for the number considering the fact that it was raining throughout the day and it was freezing cold. Really glad to meet other Malaysians who were also passionate for a change in Malaysia. We peacefully gathered there to voice out for fair vote during elections and for dirty politics to stop. Just a statement of intent. Nothing else.


Me and my friends. WE ALL LOVE MALAYSIA!!!

And today's news back home was that 50 000 people actually braved the police force in KL to voice out for the country. Over 1600 people arrested for stupid reasons like they wore a yellow shirt. Many was sprayed with chemical waters and several injured/beaten up by the police. It was the police force that acted in violence and not the crowd. These people did it with a cost, but through this, I believe it will be a start of something new. So proud of everyone who took part in it. U GUYS ARE THE HEROES/HEROINES OF THE COUNTRY!!! For standing up for justice for the country.

Friends, changes just don't happen like this. It takes time, effort, perseverance and faith. It comes with a COST. Are you willing to pay the cost?

"14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." -2 Chronicles 7:14

An experience in WWE

Last night was quite a special night for me. Rewind back to those times when I was a little kid, I could only dream of attending a WWE show. I was crazy about it, together with my brother and school friends.

I remember me and my bro last time would curi-curi watch WWE on tv when my parents are out. My mum told me last night "You think we don't know ah? Whenever we come back home, we would touch the top of the tv and it's always warm. We just closed 1 eye and kept quiet." *So if you think you can out smart your parents, better think twice. They have also gone through life and they know all our tricks*

Fast forward to 2011 and here is this 21 year old guy attending WWE. I did not plan to go actually because I've already out grown that and also, the tickets were quite expensive. But my friend Natasha was bugging me non stop, trying to convince me to go with her. After a while, I was like "'s not like your going anywhere for holidays also. And how often will u get this chance? Since this is a once a lifetime opportunity, just go lah and fulfill that childhood dream."

This is my friend Natasha, the one super enthusiastic about it and managed to somehow persuade me to go. Well done! :P

So anyway when I was there, I switched off and turned myself into a kid again. Screaming, shouting, yelling. Looking around and seeing all the kids so passionate about it, it just brought a smile to my face because I was like this once upon a time. It was truly a wonderful experience!

Childhood dream fulfilled, Jeshua!

*I actually wanted to upload the videos I recorded but I couldn't for some reason. Get it from me if u want!*

Bye exams, hello holidays!

Hello peeps! I'M BACK!! How have u been? I know you have been eagerly waiting for me to update my blog right? LOL :P

Well, I kinda took a break from blogging because I had exams this week. THANK GOD IT'S OVER!!!!!

Do you know that syiok feeling? After exams, there's this merdeka feeling, that sense of joy and relief....arghhhh LOVE IT!!!

Well all my papers were okay. Thankfully I could do all of them, although there were times I felt I could not finish the paper on time. Thank God that everything went well.

Bye bye notes! You have served me well for the past 15 weeks! =)

So what next? Here is my to do list during this 3 week holidays:

1)Re-apply for my exchange to Japan
2)Catch up with some friends I have kinda lost touch
3)Read up some self-motivation/faith inspiring books that I've bought

Yes. I took a 5 weeks break from my job because the last few weeks of uni was just too crazy for me, with all the big presentations, assignments and eventually exams! So my boss had actually found someone to replace me. For the mean time, she said she already has enough people to work for her so she just told me to go ahead and look for a new job. If she can, she said she'll try to fit me in again. MAN I'M GONNA MISS THE FREE FOOD THERE!!!!

So I called my previous boss's wife on Thursday and ask if there was still vacancy in that Thai restaurant. When she knew I called, she instantly ask me whether I would like to work! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! But we did not manage to talk much because she had a meeting that time. I will call her again on Monday to negotiate things. Sigh. I kinda need a job now cos I'm running dry....So let's just hope that I would be able to work there again. I do miss the food there as well. *When it comes to Jeshua, it's always about food. Hahahah *

So ya....I shouldn't worry so much because my God will provide! =)
