Breath To Waste


IKEA's newest sets of toys!

There's just some points that I never could understand about those who really love spending time talking about others' lives. Duh I mean, don't you guys have other things that you should've done instead of wasting time talking about people?

It has been a pretty tough week for me. Being ill, period, morning-screaming girls, people who've been acting pretty weird, the not-knowing-what-should-I-do-syndrom, etc etc. It's just felt strange that I wasn't even happy this already is weekend. But anyway, won't let anything or anyone steal my joy and peace away. These things of mine are just too precious!

PS. To someone, please don't get upset for too long, will you? I miss your smile :)

Yes, No, Wait

Picture was taken during my flight getting back to Guangzhou from Xi'An :)


A few weeks ago, a friend of mine just broke up with her boyfriend, for some particular reasons. A desperate she was, that she was thinking to end up her life. Well, she at last didn't because me personally thought she wouldn't even have enough guts to do so. And I was right.

Let's stop here for awhile. Moral of the first paragraph : never ever make decisions when you're sad or angry, and at the same time, also never make promises when you're happy. You know, just in case so that you won't do something permanently (sorry to say) stupid just because you're temporarily upset.

Back to the topic, she was telling me the story why they broke up and she was obviously upset about the thing that happened. I was interested on the part when she told me that she always prayed for her (ex)boyfriend. By the way, my friend is a Christian, just like I am and her boyfriend was not. You know, she always prayed for the thing that her boyfriend someday will be just like her, and let's just say she hoped that one day she would live happily ever after with this guy.

She kept asking me, why God didn't give answer to her prayers. I told her, well God already did. And for you, the answer was "No, he's not the one for you." That counts as an answer, right? After I told her so, her response was "Oh, then God doesn't love me for He didn't give me what I wanted".

Funny how she could think in such way for she's been a Christian for quite long time. We always been told that God has three ways in answering our prayers and they are yes, no, or wait. 

Here, what I was thinking is just how we always be selfish by only expecting yeses from Him. When it comes to nos, we just keep grumbling and whining about how unfair God is to us, or maybe just when it comes to the waits, we often are not patient enough.

The thing I want to say is, why don't we just learn to accept nos, and just believe that He's prepared something waaaaaaaay better than what we've been expecting. God knows best, doesn't He?

God says Yes, and gives you want you want.
God says No, and prepares you something better.
He says Wait, and He's preparing for you the best.

Been ill since yesterday. Getting so much better though, after 3 Panadols, Wang Lao Ji(s) and Tolak Angin(s), guess I'll be back soon. This is just so not me, lying on the bed with nothing to do and pitying myself. Get well soon, Sas :)

Hey, Do You Remember Me Or How To Say My Name?

Guess who's back! Haha seriously I even forget that I owned something people called "blog". It's been so looooooong after the last time I posted here and now I don't even know what brought me here again.

So, JUST IN CASE there's just anybody who's been wondering where I've been missing or how I've been doing in these past six months (:P), well the answer is : I've been doing SUPER! Hey, I'm in my fifth semester of college now. Ugh it's just amazing how time flies so fast.

This new semester gives me a lot of surprises and lotsa new experiences and I really really really really (did I already say really?) happy about them. Guys, since it's been a long time since I blog, may I may I make a long list about what I've been doing these times? Haha I just missed listing everything like what I used to do in this blog.

I was having great times! And I really am grateful for every single thing that has happened in my life, for every single day God has given to me. For every single task He has put believe on me. I couldn't ask for anything better, really
