Got this really nice poem on Thursday during VCF on the song sheet...

by Annie Johnson Flint

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain

But God hath promised strength for the day
Rest for the labour, light for the day.

Grace for trials
Help from above,

Unfailing sympathy.

Undying love.

It's soooooo cool.... heh... so powerful

Really nice. It's like that photo of the airplanes below. I don't know why it's so nice, but I find it really really really nice.

OK, I'm beginning to sound like one of those kind of girls... creepy.... hahaha....

C wished me a happy birthday today. Notwithstanding the fact that it is a little early, and that I've been telling her the wrong dates in Nov for a while... heh... It's the thought that counts, I guess.

I'm a little bummed out cos I've got the beginnings of a sore throat. You know, when you get that feeling that there's something gritty at the back of the throat, and you want to cough it out, but you can't and every time you swallow, you feel irritated? Yeah. I got it. Such a bother. And in my efforts to try to destroy the irritant behind it, I have been consuming unhealthy amounts of Strepsils and Nin Jiom Pei Ba Koa candies. Which do work for a while. Though R told me that eating 8 of each in a day is bound to be bad for health. Yeah. I hope I haven't reached the stage where the 'mild laxative effect' becomes reality...

Anyway, managed to suddenly get alot of sources for Sino-Japanese Relations. Thank you God for helping me. I tell you, the internet can be one of the most frustrating things at times.

Yeah. That's about it. Bother the sore throat. And me having to play for service this weekend too. bleah. (the sore throat, not the playing for service. I like playing for service. But I don't like the sore throat. So I said bleah regarding the sore throat, not the playing for service, because I like playing for service, but not with a sore throat. I mean I still don't mind playing for service with the sore throat, but I just don't like the sore throat, and I think I'm going around in circles. Just so you understand. heh.)

I've got two projects left to do. One on Japanese Studies, and one for European Studies. And thinking of having to reasearch for the things is so bleah, if you get what I mean. Like for my JS mod, my group is looking at Yokohama's Chinatown, and thee Sino-Japanese relations there. Then compare it with other major Chinese centers in Japan, and then compare it on a chronological scale. It's not that it's very stress or anything, but sometimes, the internet is so frustrating. yech..... And I don't know how to use the NUS library system thingy. So ma fan. (I would have written this in Chinese, but it comes out as symbols, so it looks like I'm cursing. haha. It wouldn't be too far wrong... heh heh...)

Also, I've got to do Alpha Class with R from VCF. And what I'm afraid of is that I may screw up the BS, cos as quite a lot of you know, I'm not exactly the most eloquent of people. Esp when English is not R's strongest language. First round seemed ok. Just hope he wasn't just being polite when he said he understood what I meant, like D back in Japan. That was a real bummer after we got back. Ah well. Just means I really need to trust God more for His wisdom. And also means that it was Him who helped R understand yesterday.

Anyway, was looking through some of my photos, since A said she didn't get the pics from me. At first I thought I had burned a set for her, but I guess not, since I was only short 3 CDRs per colour. Meaning I only burned for PJ, G and An. Bleah. It must have totally slipped my mind... And lookie what I got....

Looks suspiciously like the SAFTI bridge, don't you think? heh... and I took this shot too... Pretty good huh...

This here is a pic of the team's footwear at an out-of-the-way train station in a rural-er (or is it more rural?) part of Tokyo. As can be seen, I'm the only one wearing army regulation shoes...

Now this is another nice one. I don't know about you, but I really like this picture. I don't know why. But I think it's a really nice photograph.

Ah well... back to work. Bummer.

".....Brave Sir Robin ran away
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it's ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled.
Brave Sir Robin turned about and gallantly he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet he beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the brave Sir Robin"

-Excerpt from The Ballad of Sir Robin

Haha.... Just finished watching Appleseed not too long ago... it's so cool! And it's a serious show too... hahaha... and the box is one of those kinds where when you angle light onto it, it refracts it, so you get lots of nice colours!! Whee!!!

Cheap thrills... haha

I haven't played acoustic guitar for worship for quite awhile. OK, I know I played for Heavenward early last month... But they didn't depend so heavily on the acoustic guitar. This weekend, of the 6 songs they want to do, I think I have to start for 5 of them... and my fingers are hurting already!!! AUGH!! I'm weak! But my fingertips really hurt... I always get this nasty thought that halfway, as I'm playing, my skin will give way, and my fingers will start bleeding... eeeee.... fingers.... pain...

Ah well...

The other thing is that last month I spent quite a bit of money on presents and stuff. So many people I know turning 21 this year... (no, it's not a coincidence that I'm also turnig 21 this year)... and this month there's going to be more of them... plus one of my men is going to get married. And I've got to get him something too... and is brother's birthday too... ack... wallet... pain....
