The super gory movie that I'll never watch

Last last Monday we were asked or even forced to watch this bloody (no pun intended) short clip which was taken out of some movie. I've decided not to taint my blog with the bloody clip.

So basically we were supposed to watch (yes, even if you spent most of your time watching your own finger) and then write what we saw. I don't think I can write fingers only though I have the urge to do just so.

What I saw was
That little boy was walking on the long unending road aimlessly, his steps were slow and unstable. He was probably tired from all the walking and even feel drowsy. He looked like he was going to faint, probably felt dizzy from the heat of the hot sun. He looked blur, weak and he was perspiring a lot. He was probably afraid and felt lost.

Then I saw blood dripping onto his white shoes. His steps quicken.

Then a car came behind him.
A man chased after him. The man was terrified, panicked and was worried upon what he saw. He tried to hug the boy and give him the support he needs. Trying to help him walk. Then the boy fainted and the man was worried. He felt lost and started screaming and shouting for help as he could not do anything. No one else was around.

********************
The next clip was in a restaurant or ballroom where a ceremony was to be held.
There was chattering and giggles everywhere. People were dressed nicely and they looked rich. People are talking loudly and laughing as they like. There are people who whispers and some who felt out of place and lost were nervous, playing with their hands and fingers. They are probably bored too since no one seems to be talking to them and they can't seem to join the conversation.

There are people giving toast and a man was burping and laughed at his own bad table manners. Then they showed jewelleries on the women to perhaps portray their status. A man was talking to the manager and then they took picture as though it's a reunion. Shortly, a speech was been given on the stage and those who has been chattering non-stop finally settled down quietly to listen. They were attentive and applause was given at the right time.

That's about all that I noticed.

You keep learning each day

I learnt that not everyone is going to be nice to you, swallow it and move on.

I learnt that though some people may be nice to you in front of you, they might be talking behind you. Swallow it, move on.

I learnt that everyone has their own secret weapon and never underestimate other people.

I learnt that there are bound to be many advices (if you are lucky). Choose wisely and do not follow blindly.

I learnt that people will use all their effort to make you think like they do. But what matters is, what does He think? It is okay to say no to people and move the other direction if He told you to.

I learnt that life is an on-going learning process and you don't stop learning.

It's okay to not know now. But learn so you know it tomorrow.

Slipping Through My Fingers

Finally, they have all grown up. The two elder ones went to work. Even my baby girl drove back to her uni. I smiled as I saw her pulled away, remembering how she always gave me that 'heart attack' and 'disco-in-car' when she first started driving. I wipe those bread crumbs off the table and got ready for work.


As I drove to work, I recall those times when these little brats of mine refuses to wake up for class. Oh how I had to drag and pull them into the toilet, splash them with cold water to give them that morning wake up 'call' they need. They always manage to give me 1001 reasons why they should stay home instead of going to school. Those years of toiling to give them the best ever, all those are now over, very well over.


I can still hear their laughter and chattering every time the lift door opens at level 6. Though those are just memories, I cherish the times we once had. I laughed to myself, thinking of the silly things the baby will do just to make me smile. And how her two elder sisters will cringe at her silliness because they are just too 'grown-up' for it. Now, even she is too 'grown-up' for it.


I turned around to that familiar smell, that smell that got me salivating each time I walk passed that 'char siew' stall. There they were behind me with a plate of 'char siew', roasted to perfection. "Happy Mother's Day!" they echoed.
Tears streamed down my eyes.

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing


Slipping through my fingers all the time
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers...

They may have grown-up, but they will forever be my mischievous babies.

Disappointed

Some people can be so disappointing sometimes. I think no matter what anyone did, at least give people some credit for trying and actually doing something. Especially if all you do is sit around, minding your own business and making a mountain out of a mole hill over every single thing in the world.

If it's a constructive criticism then by all means. But if it's just saying it because you want to say it then don't discourage people from doing things that you all don't even bother to. If you can do better, then do it. If you can't, then the least you can do is keep quiet. Stop laughing at people's work if you can't even produce something like that in the first place.

People should learn to respect other people.

Mr. Snake

Today marks the day when I bumped into a snake. Or at least a snake look-a-like.

Not gonna go tasik for my morning walks ever again.

But I'm happy I woke up at 8am to go for a 50 minutes walk. Wanted to go for an hour but I was caught by surprise with the presence of mr. snake/mr. snake look-a-like that I ran. Stadium it is then for my walks.

Thank you Mr. Biawak for being so huge and for moving when you saw me. Thank you Lord for protecting me.

ps: I was talking to God when it happened.

This is crazy

9 hours of class, out of room for 12 hours IS PURE MADNESS!!!!

One last sem. Up and down the hill, in and out of air cond rooms, from one class to another, cramming 5 subjects in my head. And I am taking 5 subjects only this semester. This means I'm having all 5 subjects in just one day.

Still, I got the energy to watch drama. =) To-do list is piling up though. *peers at the list* Can't wait to get them done and cancel one by one.

Entered 2011

with Daniel right beside me. We went for EPCC Watchnight service which was the first New Year's eve service I've ever been because when I was younger, I would be out in the crowd like the rest, celebrating it and then I grew older and I just stay at home, do nothing and sleep early. This year, I decided to receive the new year in the house of our Lord.

Had awesome time, laughed, played, ate, sang worship to Him, gave my promise to God and prayed to Him. It was a great time. I decided that this year, I want to start my new year being in His presence and welcome the new year with Him with me knowing that He will be close to me throughout the year.

I looked through my resolution in 2010 and I can proudly say, I did okay. =) 6 out of 10 is not bad right? This year, I shall not make any more resolution. (also cause I can't think of any) But I believe God has His plans for me and He will reveal it one by one. So I'll just wait upon the Lord.

I learnt something yesterday. That I should not focus on the circumstances, or the people in the world when something doesn't go my way or when I have doubts. Instead, focus on God, on our Lord Jesus because He knows best. Our human eyes may not see and our human brains may not comprehend but knowing that He is in charge will help us to surrender all to Him and know that He will make something good out of nothing.

Have an awesome New Year and 2011 will be another exciting year. =)
