I've been shortlisted for the Star scholarship. Majoring in media management/Journalism. My interview's on 10 May.

I was surprised i got it. Praise the Lord. I've already given up on it after Carol told me she got it a few weeks back. Now i've realised that they have probably 2 batches. She applied for INTI so, that may be another reason too.

I'm hoping to go and give my best.

Keep me in your prayers peeps. Pray for the Lord's guidance for my future. Thanks :D

GAS list up! some modifications compared to my earlier post. And no pictures.

This has got to be my most brilliant action for some time yet. I was suppose to put those vegs into the tupperware. Unfortunately, as you can see from above, something went very wrong. Maybe my eyes was just playing tricks on me..


I'm starting work this friday at halo cafe. I can't stand slacking anymore.

I've been tagged by evonne. And this is a long one ahead. Sorry if i may bore you, but obligations you know?

One has to start off by writting 6 weird things about oneself and answer the questions to let others discover you "layer by layer" in your blog. One then has to state the rule clearly and tag 6 others friends and leave a comment to let them know they're being tagged. (but i'm not going to tag anyone. Sorry for being a spoilsport. xP)

The scoreline says it all. It was one of the best performances i've seen from the red side of manchester for a very long time.

7-1 on the night. 8-3 on aggregate. Ross summed it all up when he said,"Even the most hardcore Man united fan couldn't predict this scoreline."

I could't. Honestly.

The treble is still possible. We can do it. Injuries? With teamwork, we can overcome the odds.

The red army (not liverpool, definitely) is marching on.

So sorry for being so slow.

This is the first time i'm being tagged, so, yeah. I'm not sure if i'm doing this correctly. Am i?
TAGGED BY SHINGY. FIVE THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT ME. I'll try and keep this short and sweet.
1) My friends used to call me shin chan because of my supposedly thick eyebrows. Thick meh?

2) I enjoy reading Enid Blyton books. I started out my reading endeavours with enid blyton and the mystery series. I still read them ; especially when I need to enlighten my mind. I also like to watch the cartoon channels over astro. Partly beacause of my siblings but hey, I do enjoy some of them.
3) I'm a sucker for good bargains and sales.
4) I can get pretty emotional when it comes to football. Befitting the situation, i can cry, shout, dance etc etc..
5) I really aspire to one day play the piano PROPERLY. For me, i feel that the piano is one of the most expressive instruments of all time.


Come like You promised You would
I want to surrender for good
I know that I need You and I don't
Want to keep living life alone

So take this heart and make it new
make it true make it like You
Take my hands I lift them high
They're Yours not mine to do

Do what You will
Do what You will
Do what You will

I feel like a blind man in Your sight
I know that I'm wicked in Your eyes
So wash me and make me shine like Your Son
I want to tell everyone that You're the only one

I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now, do what You will

I'm ready now
I'm ready now
I'm ready now

(Jared G Anderson, 2006 Vertical Music Songs/ASCAP)

I thank God that for the joy that was set before Him, being me, send his Son to the cross. To redeem.


Had a great time with my friends in malacca yesterday. As there were girls in our mist, this trip was almost all shopping focused.

We had a stop at A'FARMOSA RESORT first. Yong shyang had some business documents he wanted to settle. Spend a longer than expected time there unfortunately.

Then, we missed the highway exit to malacca. In fact, so engrossed we were in talking, it was a good 15 minutes before we realised it. More time lost.

On to MAHKOTA PARADE. Honestly, im quite sick and bored of that place. I NEARLY bought a couple of cds from INVERNO again. Thankfully, i resisted. haha. Budget not good la. I guess the only highlights of mahkota parade for me was watching MR BEAN'S HOLIDAY and my new giordano shirt (the plain black one. Im not really into their current designs).

Next stop was DATARAN PAHLAWAN which was just opposite mahkota. This is my first visit to the newly constructed place. Honestly, i'm quite bowled over by the construction of it. Don't let it's outer appearance fool you. Underneath it is a really cool designed mall. Sleek.

The girls did MORE shopping. To kill time, we guys decided to climb ST PAUL'S HILL. We promptly entered St Paul's church. For some reason, the lights around St Peter's hill wasn't lit. So, the old church was kinda dark. We had to use mobile phones to find our way around. Add in some enormous tombstones and it gets really exciting. One thing i've noticed about the hill : There's a lot of cats around. Honestly.

Later we wanted to eat dinner at JONKER WALK. But unfortunately, MANY stalls weren't open that night. I was disappointed and i guess my friends were too. So, we adjoined to a nearby food market where i savoured some really hot sotong and curry. So hot was it in fact, that i had to buy 3 glasses of drinks. And that's a new record by joash wee who for the first time, had to use 3 glasses of water to relinquish the spiciness of the food and his thirst.

Then it rained. I guess that speaks for itself.

Arriving back in muar, we still had it in us to go for a meal of fried sotong. What can i say? We ADORE sotong.



My hp's down. ) : It's been the case for almost a week now. I'm not complaning, because im able to use my mum's old panasonic phone. Im not even sure wat model it is, but it's veerrrriiiiiii tiny.

What's bugging me is that i've lost quite a few of my friends numbers. There've been many foreign numbers appearing on my screen recently.

Another thing to note. The speaker of the panasonic isn't functioning well and i have to practically SHOUT into the phone to have a decent conversation. Onlookers must think that im daft. or deaf for that matter.

There's still a bar left on my sony ericsson. I'm finding the right moment to transfer all my important data into the laptop. And that includes my contacts! Oh YES I WILL.....

I'm not complaining. In fact, i'm thankful for this phone.

Today, i've broke a record. I've played all the praise songs in sunday service today using only the neck pickup of my guitar. In true fact, i seldom use the neck pickup, but i'm trying. ((: Besides,the praise songs today was all in MINOR.
You can call it widening my horizons.

Happy april fools anyway.
