Sorry for the lack of update peeps. The fact that I've been busy doesn't do justice to all ye who wastes precious bandwidth reading this blog. The facter fact that tmnut's suxmyx/screamyx makes things worse when I can't even upload pics unto photobucket or do my uncredibly Xunlei action; ya know, the thing I usually do.
For that, I'm sorry. So don't ping my cheese with your bandwidth, go burn tmnut.
Let's recap all the days that were MIA.
[insert laughable joke]
Lectures are fine, lecturers are boring. It baffles me how some of them can even qualify to lecture but after putting much thought into it, it's somewhat understandable given how easily it was to get a Masters Degree, etc,etc in the past.
house-warming gifts are the sweetest of things
Been spending most of my nights going for suppers, playing either monopoly (just to make sure j.lee suffers) or recently, mahjong. Beaches and the new highway-shortcut are loads of cool.
homemade burgers: looks gross, tastes woah
Owh yea, before that.
BLESSED BURFDAY ELYS & ELVI!! KAWAIII TWINSS!!!
Two weeks ago's CG was fun. Went to Calanthe and (cue jealous gurl's screams and whines) Joel fed Elys. Lucky gurl. Even I don't get that sorta treatment.
Saturday came and the first two guinea pig CGs were Elys' CG & Ana-chan's CG. The trip to Segamat proved to be a rather straightforward one; the road was, at least. We combined our forces and split ourselves up into two groups; one for the gurl's home and one for the boy's home. I was in the boy's home and we weren't prepared at all for what was about to come.
The first barrier, the communication barrier was the most obvious when they asked if we could communicate in mandarin as they couldn't speak english. The second barrier, the age barrier was the really kicker. We rightfully assumed that they boy's home were more of a boy's kids home thingy based on the picture from their church's anniversary-picture-cum-book thingy (lots of it). Ergo, our plans for a simple happy-fun-fun time was severely disrupted when it was obvious that giving teens aged 14-16 sweets as prizes for winning games wasn't tickling their fancy (or any parts of their... nevermind, kthxbai). The other group had it easy. More on that later.
Thor Thean doing the D.Cook thingy
Last last Tuesday was BSAD; Brothers & Sisters Appreciation Day. The qwerky named event was founded by our seniors of past years where we would simply show each other we love ya through many means ranging from bashing, sabo'ing, feeding, leeching, dancing, sketches, singing, mime'ing, and many more. The point is that it was both fun and loving; not something over complicated which is, sadly, rather common these days. Good bye CF, heallow a church.
i know ya love me esther-dear
The following Saturday, the next two groups of CGs the Bi-Esther's CGs (both E.Siow and E.Lee) were up next to Segamat. This time however, due to the MMU Olympics, many members couldn't make it for the trip and so with the small group, I decided to only visit one home; the Gurl's home.
speed equals distance over time
This time, we were more prepared. Overcoming the earlier two barriers and even much more easier handling the kids than teens.
I must say, I was thoroughly blessed by these kids in the homes. They live with such simplicity and honestly in their eyes. They cry and get angry when they're jealous, they say 'thank you' with the utmost sincerity, and above all, they are cute as ever.
some kids did this. hulk?
Honestly, I'm looking forward to visiting this kids again and teaching them guitar as I had promised them the week before. Observing them helps me show them the love of Christ that somehow seems so much easier to be poured out on them than others around me.
Well. Today's the 5th of March, the promised date that the bloody circuit problem from tmnut would be fixed though I ain't putting much hope on them. So much for diversity and democracy.
