He lives in me.

hello again everyone! I sense this is gonna be a long post, so please bear with me. 


So yesterday, I just got back from our church Charismatic Youth Rally. Was in church for 19 hours. Beat that! LoL. It really was an eye opener that I needed. I was in dire need of an inner healing session, and praise God, there was one yesterday. A brief one but it worked. Fr. Michael Raymond, Mervin and his wife, Lydia gave talks on many different topics related to us and our lives. After yesterday, i'm looking forward to our annual Youth Camp.

here, watch this. 
it makes me tear everytime. 
Its a song by Lifehouse and what we go through as teens.

watching that skit again yesterday made me realize of all the materialistic things i've been chasing for in life. Then I ask myself, for what? I notice that because of peers and the people around me that are constantly going for all the materialistic items, I followed them. I notice that in the past weeks, i've splurged unnecessarily on things that I dont need in that certain time. Plus, its not even my money. Its my parents. The thought of using their money and spending on unwanted things for myself just hurts. 

next comes friends. You know when you're around your friends, you gotta remain 'cool' and you know, 'fit-in' with them. Again I ask myself, for what? I mean, if you wanna be friends with someone, you have to overlook theirs and your good and bad, accept them for who they are and not try to be someone you're not. Just because that girl wears heels and is all diva like, you dont have to be like that. Be proud of who you are. I believe simplicity is always the best. 

some may not agree with me, but then again, different people have different opinions. Who am I to judge? All I know is, I feel renewed. Fr. Michael said this and it made me smile, 'Dont search for God. God will search for you. He always does." Looking back at a few incidents, I believe its true. God always comes to us. We just need to have faith in Him. 

In other news, I WENT FOR JASON MRAZ CONCERT! Yes, you heard that right! My first concert! Hehehe. It was so so awesome! It felt surreal :) Thanks to Darryl and his sister, Karissa's friend who sponsored the ticket.

so people, think again about whatever you're doing. There's always the good in bad in it. Thanks for reading! Turned out not a that long post after all :p Do check out the videos! :)

have a good week everyone! =)

In the end, dreams just scatter and fall like rain

holidays

Hello everyone! Were you on holidays like me too? What did you do? Well, basically what I did was babysitting my brother and sister because my parents went on a holiday without us to India. Yeah, you read that right. They went on a holiday without us. Pfttttt.. Anywaaaaay, despite babysitting them, I did have some time to meet up with some of my friends that I haven't been spending time with in a long long time.


I started of my holidays at the Pentecost Vigil for the Campus Ministry in church. Helping out I mean. It was kinda fun and tiring at the same time. Here are some of the pictures. 

yes, there's a campfire! 
group 7! :p
the participants.

A few days after holidays started, I brought my cousin, brother and sister out for a movie and because we were dying to eat Subway. LoL. We watched Avengers! It was really good I must say. THOR! :p Few days later, I met up with my Love & Life friend, Sapna. Its been so long since we've last hung out together so we thought since we were both on holidays, we should catch up. And we did! Went around KL, walked and talked and shopped :p 

this is Sapna. Miss Leng Luiiiiii :p
p.s Karina, you're next okay! 

This was the weekend Mummy and Daddy left for India and I thought I had a little freedom. Well, I kinda did :p That weekend, we had our cousin, Caydine Adele Edison's 1st birthday. So my uncles and cousins took us down to my other uncle's pub(Cheers) in Damansara. Here are some of the pictures. 

yeah, that's Jeremy. 
you've seen him all the time right? :p
this is Shayna. 
another one of my baby cousins :)

On Wednesday of that week, I met up with my 'soulmate', Juan Margrita! hehe. We've been planning to go out since a long long time but we're just too busy with so many things. Finally found the time when we could go out. We watched Snow White and The Huntsman where my love for Chris Hemsworth bloomed :p


LOL I curi this picture from her facebook.
since I didn't get a picture with her.
I love you to bits Juan! 

A few days after that, I went out with Amanda, Glynn and Colin on our annual outing :) We watched Madagascar 3! Its super hilarious. Highly recommended! Though our meet up was really short, but i'm glad we did it. 

Colin~Manda~Me~Glynn
yeah, we all took pic with Colin
look at the height difference!
and yes, i'm very short in case you didnt know.

Last night, had another family function at grand-uncle's place. Also met up with Claire, my childhood friend. Her grandpa just passed away, so she was back from UK for a week and will be going back today. Managed to meet up with her as well. Happy I did. 

this is Claire :) 

Well, that's about it for my holidays. Just cleaned up the house today to 'welcome' mummy and daddy home tomorrow. Which means my new semester will also be starting tomorrow and i'll be back in Shah Alam :( This is sad. Looking forward to next month! Family wedding :) I love weddings so much. Will catch up with you soon okay! Till then everyone! Do not frown because tomorrow is Monday, smile and be positive and look at the bright side okay? Byeeeeee!

I'll make sure to keep my distance
Say 'I love you' when you're not listening
How long till we call this love?
