a saddening terrible accident..

Friday, November 27, 2009

today, a terrible saddening accident happened at the main road just outside my hostel. it's been the 2nd accident of the month. this time, i only saw the aftermath after getting down from the bus, the dead body. based on our observations of the shoe on the road and the position of the body beside the trailer lorry, there's the possibility that the person was hit and dragged by the huge trailer. the 1st accident happened about a month ago, right in front of my eyes, just 100 meters away, when we were about to cross the road to go for class in the morning.

realizing everything that happened today, i realize sometimes we just tend to take our safety for granted. we take life for granted, sometimes just wasting it and not making full use of it, not living out the purpose for our lives. never take life for granted. never take the blessings of God for granted, even in the aspect of our safety, it's already something that is a tremendous blessing from God.

i've learn so much. i thank God He's always there for me bringing me through everything.
it's control exams season now. the last control exams before the Anatomy and Histology Final Exams in January. wow.. scary! Anatomy kills! still got control exams to clear. time is really essence.

Okies. I guess that's all for now. Till then, take care everyone. Sorry for not updating, will try my best to do so :) God bless.

P/S: Dear Kuzmin hostel ppl, please please be extra careful when crossing the main road outside our hostel!


Dear Daddy..

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Happy Birthday!

Thank you,
for everything,
for being the BEST daddy in the world.

Thank you,
for all your LOVE,
endless care and support,
and for always being there for me,
no matter how busy you were,
or how far apart we were.

Even words cannot express,
how much I LOVE You.
I wish I was Home now,
to celebrate your birthday with you,
and to join in all the surprises,
to make your day,
such a special and memorable one.

It feels like a part of me is missing,
when I can't be home to be there with you.
But, I know,
my heart is at Home, with you,
even though I'm not there physically.

I pray, that God will bless Daddy so much,
Like how daddy has blessed me so much.

and I miss you too..

-Daddy's Little Girl-

Saturday, November 7, 2009

i fell in love with this song when i watched the movie 'Fireproof'. this song really touched me and it meant a lot to me at this time especially. sometimes, we just gotta be still and wait on the Lord. know that He always cares for me and you..


While I'm Waiting by John Waller

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord


A Memorable 20th Birthday

Saturday, October 17, 2009

Firstly and foremost,
i would like to express my thanks and appreciation to everyone for making my 20th birthday, such a memorable one.
thank you so so much for all the surprises, gifts and wishes.
thank you to all my dear friends for planning a memorable birthday i would never forget.

now i shall begin my story of how it all went.
first, it began when the clock struck 12 midnight, marking it's 12th October.
into my room came my batch mates (2nd years, those staying in Kuzmin) and block mates.
they brought in a small cake. it was merely a humble, very small cake cutting ceremony.
and everyone left very quickly, after eating the cake. for me, their expressions all looked very fishy, like as if something else was going to happen next, it was kinda obvious though. haha. but nothing else happened that night.

then during the day, went to class as usual. to me, the day was like every other day, i somehow didn't feel anything special about the day. morning, went for biochemistry class. when i went to the toilet, my group mates ended up telling my biochem teacher, Anton that it was my birthday and when i came back from the toilet and handed him my book to check n sign, he wished me Happy Birthday. i was shocked and stared at everyone.. no one admitted they told him of course. LOL.

then for dinner, we had potluck planned by Gan, Charmaine, Valynne, Chia Zhen, Brandon n Sharon. thank you so much for the wonderful dinner which included the chinese traditional noodles when it's someone's birthday. thank you so so much.. everything was so delicious :)

after the potluck, i did not suspect that there were going to be more surprises coz no one looked fishy anymore, until i accidentally saw one of my presents, a beautifully decorated board filled with birthday messages on it. the incident happened when i opened Sharon's room door after dinner, the other room in the same block as me. coz i saw Jasper's slippers outside my room so the hyper me at that time wanted to kacau so i went to see what Jasper was up to. i opened the door, Sharon who was sitting on her bed, stared at me with her eyes opened wide, i did not notice the board which was on the floor beside her bed yet. her reaction was she immediately took her pillow n watever she had on the bed n threw it on the floor to cover it, her eyes was still staring at me and with a wide smile/laugh on her face, like as if in a shocked state. and when she did that, my eyes diverted to the floor and i saw a bit of it, i laughed, and quickly ran out, still laughing hard. sorry Sharon. haha. n there was it, i just spoiled my own surprise.

then came prayer meeting. after prayer meeting, Marcus tried to bluff me with some reason using May Shi's name, he was trying so hard not to make it so obvious but to me it was very obvious that they were trying to delay my time to return to my room after the meeting coz they were all ready set in my room, ready to surprise me again, this time, the real actual surprise, the best kept to the last. haha. then when i finally went back to my room, i already suspected something fishy was happening, plus the fact that Gan walked me back to the room. i kinda potong steam when i reached back to my block, coz the first thing i did was open the bathroom door, and of course, all the slippers were hidden inside, i laughed quietly (i think that time Gan wanted to kill me for opening the bathroom door). haha. so i smiled and entered my room and low n behold, everyone was there.

i was really touched by everything, although i kinda found out at the end. first, they made me find 9 lighted candles placed around my room, i had to blow them and then i had to light it again. then i made a wish, and cut my real birthday cake this time, it had the big candle 20 on it. then they made me look for the precious gift from my mum with the clue that is was near food. it was actually under my bday cake, they used it to lift the cake up a little, i had not noticed it earlier. i nearly teared when i saw the gift my mum sent through Charmaine at the airport. never did i realize she had planned it from the beginning, it was a lovely diamond platinum chain. thank you so much mum. the card from home was supposed to accompany the present but it hasn't reach, coz i was late in sending the postal address to mum.

next, they showed me my presents, all laid on the bed. the present included the bed. they bought me an air-bed mattress. coz recently my bed had the bed bug problem and before i could do anything about it, they had already changed my mattress for me on my birthday. thank you so much everyone. then they made me climb on my bed and jump 3 times, while Matthew was happily taking video of the entire process.

after that, they gave me the remaining presents: A beautifully decorated board filled with birthday messages, a red rose, perfume with a key chain attached to it, and another soft toy dog (this time this soft toy can talk). haha. after all that, we took photos and ate cake :)

thank you so so much everyone, for everything. it was indeed a really special and memorable surprise. every year, the surprise gets more n more special in its way and i'm really touched by everything.

and again,
thank you everyone for making my 20th Birthday such a memorable one.


Trust in Spite of How it Looks

"for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith."
(1 John 5:4)

It is easy to love Him when the blue is in the sky,
When summer winds are blowing,
and we smell the roses nigh;
There is little effort needed to obey His precious will
When it leads through flower-decked valley,
or over sun-kissed hill.

It is when the rain is falling,
or the mist hangs in the air,
When the road is dark and rugged,
and the wind no longer fair,
When the rosy dawn has settled in a shadowland of gray,
That we find it hard to trust Him,
and are slower to obey.

It is easy to trust Him when the singing birds have come,
And their canticles are echoed in our heart and in our home;
But 'tis when we miss the music,
and the days are dull and drear,
That we need a faith triumphant over every doubt and fear.

And our blessed Lord will give it;
what we lack He will supply;
When we ask in faith believing - on His promises rely;
He will ever be our Leader,
whether smooth or rough the way,
And will prove Himself sufficient for the needs of every day.

To trust in spite of the look of being forsaken;
to keep crying out into the vast,
whence comes no returning voice,
and where seems no hearing;
to see the machinery of the world pauselessly grinding on as if self-moved,
caring for no life, nor shifting a hair-breadth for all entreaty,
and yet believe that God is awake and utterly loving;
to desire nothing but what comes meant for us from His hand;
to wait patiently, ready to die of hunger,
fearing only lest faith should fail - such is the victory that overcometh the world,
such is faith indeed.


A New Semester..

Friday, September 11, 2009

I'm now officially in 2nd year of medical course.
classes started on 1st September.
so now we're in our 2nd week of classes.
i got Pavel as my Physiology teacher and Anton as my Biochemistry teacher.


settled down in a new hostel, a new room.
although there were so many problems and disappointments along the way,
but then in the end,
i realized God was in control of the whole situation.
i really thank God for everything.

Currently, I'm staying in Kuzmin hostel.
it's a really nice place,
newly renovated so the rooms are all very nice,
and even more nicer after we clean up and decorated it the way we like.
The only thing bad is that the price of the hostel,
and the traffic jams in the morning.
so every morning we have to leave latest at 7.30am for classes.

So here's my new room.
my roommate is Saac (my godsis) and block mates are Shoba (3rd yr) and Sharon (2nd yr).
each unit has 2 rooms, 2 ppl per room.
really happy with to be able to settle down in this nice room with awesome block mates.
reli thank God for everything..

my bed n Saac's bed

the view from the window

the view from the door

my bed and my table

extra table for preparing meals and putting stuffs.
Saac's table at the inner corner.

the beautiful view from the window.
i bet it's gonna be nicer during autumn.

the bathroom

the corridor with the fridge and the sink.
the toilet at the corner.

And for our first combined fellowship meeting,
we had it at the Kuzminki Park together with Karhov Hotspot.
the park's awesome,
they had those amusement park things there like kids roller coaster, etc.
and even horses.. hehe.

we had fellowship at an empty corner among the trees.
had praise & worship, ice-breaker, sharing of the Word, and some food of course.

Sharon n me. my awesome block mate :)
while waiting for bus outside the hostel.

happy people :)

Team 1 for ice-breaker

Team 2 for ice-breaker

3 cheers for the start of a new semester.
there'll be even more challenges ahead,
but hey,
i believe it's gonna be another awesome year.

God bless everyone..

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and bad times, but..
Zion waits in glory.

All glory to God!


back in Moscow..

Friday, August 28, 2009

i'm back in Moscow,

back to the land of obstacles.
the one conclusion i have made so far is,
Mos-Lanka company = Money Laundering company
gives me more headache than ever.
i wish someone could teach them a lesson,
once and for all..

for those of us who don't have a permanent hostel,
we're without a hostel now
and we're all putting up in our seniors place in different hostels.
thank you so much to everyone for everything.
thank you so much seniors.

we'll only be able to move into our temporary hostels on 31st August..
which is the day before our term starts.

it's back to the challenges ahead.
it's not nice at all,
we can do it!

gambateh everyone..
hang in there..

to all in Malaysia, miss you all lots.. God bless.


it's time to say goodbye..

Sunday, August 23, 2009

the time has come,
for goodbyes.

i hate this moment
and i never look forward to it.
although it's for the 4th time now,
and i should be used to it by now,
but still,
my heart feels so heavy.

Sunday early morning is my flight.
which means, in just 6 hours,
i'll be on my way back to Moscow again.

i am so gonna miss everyone so much.

Dad, Mum, David, Sam, Steve, Judith, Gavin, Soon Ying, Joyce, and the list goes on,
i will always remember you,
deep in my heart.
always keeping you in prayer,
no matter how many miles away i may be.
Love you all so much..
And thank you for everything.
