Oh Happy Day :)

*can’t stop grinning like an idiot*

because today has confirmed the little secret rumor that the account exec shared with me a few days earlier. THE WHOLE STAFF OF THE COMPANY RECEIVE THE MOST GENEROUS ‘DUIT RAYA’ SINCE THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY – A ONE MONTH BONUS!!!! *howls* that struck everyone with disbelief. i even heard that some did the poco-poco dance in the office…. apuuuu!!! (not our branch)

with that i am so very THANKFUL. God, THANK YOU for putting me in this place!!! i pray that God will continue to pour His countless blessing towards the company and continue to prosper. and also with that, i wanna say a big THANK YOU to my generous big boss. God bless you, boss!! 😀

***********************************************************************************************************

have you ever have a feeling where your heart is so OVERWHELMED with GRATITUDE and JOY for knowing a person in your life that tears filled your eyes just thinking about them? yesterday that feeling consumed me out of the blue. i was so filled with gratitude and thankfulness for knowing this person in my life that ALL her sharing and teaching (with her shrieks and ketegasan, but what do u expect she is a teacher) came flashing one by one drilling my head like a driller and i realised how i have hold on to her words for the person i am today. i sent a THANK YOU message on her fb wall today as well as her inbox and she replied with ‘xie-xie’ LOL!!!! dear Lord, may You always shield her under wings and bless her with never-ending blessing from above in her life.

that person is our pastor’s wife and also a school teacher, dora andy.

have you say THANK YOU to a person that has inspired you or mold you or even left an impact to u today?! no day is better than today to say it.

because a post is always yummier with a photo.

"Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be gald in it." Psalm 118:24

be blessed, peeps!

No Deal!

i am running out of title so i just use the title of today’s daily bread.
the daily bread booklet used to be my guidance during my daily devotion.
which i am shamelessly declaring now that a routine i’ve missed for so long now T__T
i dunno why. let just say laziness wins everytime!!

It is written, “man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word of God.” Luke 4:4
this message seems so appropriate today.

God knows what’s in my heart atm.
it is a jumble of stress and depression.
i can’t wait for all this mess to end.
really. pls!

just came back from the corporate prayer meeting.
one sharing touched my heart.

the three generations.

oh Lord, forgive us for sinning against our elderly, the authority above us, the GENERATION BEFORE US. forgive us for not obeying and honoring them the way we should and should have been.

oh Lord, forgive us for sinning against our CURRENT GENERATION. forgive us for not caring about the things going around us. for not loving enough. for not taking chances. for taking things for granted. for letting our own friends slip away T__T

oh Lord, forgive us for sinning against our FUTURE GENERATION that we do not set the excellent examples for the young ones. for not creating legacy to last for generations.

dear Lord, forgive us. forgive ME.

be blessed, ppl!

i live to learn and i learn to live with it

Fireproof

Fireproof doesn’t mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it. by Michael Simmons from the movie Fireproof

Catherine Holt: So, what day are you on?
Caleb Holt: Uh… 43.
Catherine Holt: There’s only 40.
Caleb Holt: Who says I have to stop?
from the movie Fireproof

had a long day today. but i am not complaining because i know it was all worthwhile. so i have the priviledge to join the Putri (The Women Section) on their this week’s activity – movie! (was assigned as their dvd cum lcd controller) a movie called Fireproof. a truly inspiring movie. especially for the married ones. many memorable quotes and verses from the movie that really moving but the above two were ones i totally can relate to. maybe because i am still unmarried so i didnt really take good attention to the other quotes. but at least i learned something.

like my own quote,

i live to learn and i learn to live with it

Be blessed, people!!

jeng… jeng… jeng…

hmm… nope i’m not gonna pop that 1st. nyeh.. nyeh.. nyeh….

so they got Grammy Awards in Hollywood, Star Screen Awards in Bollywood, Anugerah Planet Muzik in Msia / Indo / Sg, and recently The SHOUT Awards in Msia, we in Myy got something almost similar – The ABBA Awards 2009! Held in Eastwood Valley on 26/7/2009. Notice how they rhymes? Hollywood, Bollywood and Eastwood?! hence the dress code was ala Eastwood artists like that :p

so what exactly was ABBA Awards all about? No, it doesnt have anything to do with the ABBA group who sang Dancing Queen :p For the very first time our church came out with an idea of way to appreciate its people. It was a very special event to appreciate the dedication of those who serve in the Altar Ministry who have given their time and energy only for the glory of our beloved Father a.k.a ABBA. Lead by the ever brilliant, up-to-date yet serius and a Ps.’ wife, Sis. Dora this ministry has come a long way of being one of the fastest growing and the most happening ministry in the church.

the dinner started with all the early birds posed for a ‘red carpet’ moment. and to add glamour to that everyone has the opportunity to hold the ABBA Award trophy and strike a ‘If I Win The ABBA Award’ pose… haha!! i was there as the amateur photog cos i am ‘the girl with the big camera’ and now…. with a tripod! whee~~ so here goes some of the poses….

even though they didnt get the trophy but the three of them dint go back empty handed. they each received an award. From left: Lina - Anugerah Altar Paling Kuat Ketawa '09, Richard - Anugerah Altar Paling Blur '09, Sis. Helen U. - Anugerah Altar Paling Kuat Nangis '09. haha!!

JOSHUA PAUL!!!

Congrates Josh!! eventhough you werent there in flesh but we knew that you were praying hard to win the categories... haha!!

Congrates Josh!! eventhough you werent there in flesh but we knew that you were praying hard to win the categories... haha!!

He didnt walk away with only one, not two but THREE awards of the night. Another record breaker! Joshua also won Anugerah Worship Leader Paling Popular 2009 (The Most Popular Worship Leader 2009) and Anugerah Altar Paling Bergaya Lelaki 2009 (The Most Stylish Male Altar Award 2009). and he deserved them all the most. Too bad he too couldnt make it to the gala event due to unforseen reasons. He was somewhere else let’s just say on work commitment.

so that’s a wrap about the ABBA night 🙂 again it was not being the most popular or the most talented person but as The Father will reward His children who diligently seeking for Him, we too are able to do so by appreciating the ppl around us. We only hope that this kind of event could inspire others and bring out the Impact Maker within you. It wasnt only for the present but it was a legacy for the next generation and many years to come.

ok, the end.

photo on the right was when she was demonstrating the ‘If I Win The ABBA Award’ pose and ended up only she alone got it. the rest were all ‘skema’ to the max. both photos were taken by Tim who pitied the girl who only stood behind the lense. kekekeke….

submission to the authorities

something unexpected happened at the workplace today that i do not fancy to recall and rephrase. safe to say that it wasnt a good episode where it almost took away the energy in me cos my easy heart doesnt use to such antics. venting in foul words with misplaced grammar sent pity and ticklish to my bone over the ‘rager’. usually i will vent them in anger and somewhat emo here but this time i decided to turn the leaf around looking at it in a positive way. my time is too valueable to rant about such ridiculous scene. takda hasil!!

after the whole thing, today i finally internalised the meaning of ‘submission to authorities’ even though i nearly toss away my respects toward these kind of ppl out of the window. just like a boomerang it returns back to me simply because i am aware that there are these kind of ppl exist in this world and however we despise them when they are ranked above us we still need to respect them. years ago i might hold grudges so long that i wish silent thought can kill or hope they turn into a fly so that they only eat shit for the rest of their life or sumpahseranah them so that they wont have a descendant forever. but now that i’ve learned what i’ve learned. ppl can change cos homo sapien is indeed a funny thing! and for a commercial break, that’s what Impact Camp did to u :p

today these verses have come to a good use in a form of self-slap! I mean reflection….

Rm 13:1-2 ‘everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement to themselves’ (Kuang! Kuang! Kuang!)

Heb 13:17 ‘Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, FOR THAT WOULD BE OF NO ADVANTAGE TO YOU’ (alamak!)

so do you have any feud / misunderstanding / disrespect / rebel towards your ‘authorities’? authorities here can be referred as ur country leaders, ur bosses, ur parents, teachers, group leaders, a bus driver….. whoever is in-charge or above u, is established by God. aha! siapa berani lawan? so anyhow we must obey and respect them.

it may be difficult to gulp. i doubt i can but i am assimilating bit by bit…..

can you?

u see this in bali..... crown on top of the rooftops.

I live to learn and i learn to live with it

the much anticipated jungle trekking was on!!! yohoOO!! i missed it last year. so i made sure i join this time. and the weather was wonderful today 🙂

but for a 1st timer……

all i can say now is…..

dsc_0067-2

i’m dead famished!!!

since i still have 0.23 ounce of energy left so let me tell u what some things that i still remember throughout the grueling journey.

1. the uncles and aunties moved faster and swifter than me. talking bout superior stamina! T_T
2. witnessed a white man fell almost 3 meters down the steep terrain right in front of my eyes. omg!! thank God for some quick helping hands from the other trekker. too stunned was i that i can only stood helplessly from the top hoping i wouldnt end up like him too. amzingly he survived with only minor cuts (i guess) and off he strode away as quick as he overtook me.

beep…. beep…. beep….

*about to collapse*

no more energy…..

*fainted*

black out service

Filed under: On The ROCK!! — lv @ 12:15 pm

the hall was that dark. those are lights from the laptop, a phone and a small window.

the hall was that dark. those are lights from the laptop, a phone and a small window.

for the 1st time today our church blacked out due to some technical maintenance by SESCO at the area. haha!! apparently no body took notice bout the power interruption announcement in the paper. so it will be off till 5p.m. since the church doesnt have a generator so there’s no way we could continue the service in the stuffy, dark hall. so after one praise song, one brief testimonial by The Pr., some important announcements and prayers we had to leave. it took a mere 30 minutes for a supposedly 2 hours service.

but God is omnipresence. He is everywhere more often nearest to our heart. it’s just a prayer away. so a black out is not an excuse for an ‘absent’ before of Him. or else our presence to the church every sunday would be just like a ‘punch card’ to report that ‘hey, Lord! i came! count me in in the book of life ok!’ sad but true. but we cant deny some christian do think of it that way. by religiously going to the church every sunday, they consider they are holy and know it all. i dont deny i used to be one of those type too T_T i thought by going to church every sunday and participating in one or two activities will consider myself a good christian. i’ve done my part or watever. but thanks to some relentless ppl around me and through various ‘berus dan sental’ i gradually learned and understand.

“for it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

ok lah, i sounded so serious up there. i dun wanna rant more as if i am all so holy like that. hehe!! *back to comic mode* i am just reminding myself cos i am so free now after returning from the 30minutes service :p

am gonna blog bout my last week’s short vacation asap. oh yes, with heaps of photos too! *grin* here’s a sneak peek ;p

can you?!! hehe....

can you?!! hehe....

have a blessed day!!
