Just returned from the VCF IFG planning retreat that was held in church. So I'm kinda bummed. And if I start losing coherence along the way, please be understanding.

It was mostly ok. The fellowship with each other was great, whether it was between old people, or new people, or the staff workers. And we all played a bit of floorball, even though A got hit in the face by a stick and broke his glasses. But he was ok, and he still played after that anyway.

To be frightfully honest, when I joined IFG, I was expecting it to be like SF, as in like there's the Exco, but there's also a large bunch of members who would be like forming the bulk of the SF community. Which was why when AF asked me to join IFG, and kept on pointing out that I could help JS in her ideas to start a Japanese outreach group, I didn't mind joining, since I thought I could just play some minor supporting role for JS. Then JS pointed out during the camp that it appeared that we all joined the Exco for IFG. I guess I had gotten so carried along with the whole planning thing that I didn't realize that was what we were doing. And it wasn't exactly why I joined IFG. Or at least, I was given the impression that if I joined IFG, I didn't have to be doing like something major, since as it is, I am already committed to Youth and Worship min in church, along with BB for SAS, and then I am a student too. And as it is, I'm barely surviving, much less take up a major role in a VCF sub-comm. Of course, now that I've committed, if C really needs the help, I'll do the work. But I might, like, drop to a 2.50 or something.

But C and S were really nice about it, and said that since some of us had gotten the wrong idea, then could we all just please go back and pray about it and see if we are able to take up any of the major roles, and if not, it'll be ok.

So anyway, that was two nights where I slept late. You should see what the few of us who stayed behind were doing.

Yes. This is P and G playing tic-tac-toe on a tub of Rocky Road ice-cream that X bought for us to eat, but we were too full to eat it straight after dinner, and so some of us ate it later.

Oh, and I can tell of the $0.50 prank I played on JS.

As some of us know, due to a bad encounter with a certain lady who is uncertain about the goods she sells, JS has a particular aversion to tao sa paos (red bean paste buns). However, she loves lin yong paos (lotus seed paste buns). So one morning, when me and C went behind church to eat breakfast, C called JS to see if she wanted to eat anything. And JS said she wanted a lin yong pao. This is where the fun started.

I know JS does not like tao sa pao. I know she likes lin yong pao. And she likes milo. So I bought a tao sa pao, a lin yong pao, and a packet of milo. Then we brought it back to JS. Of course, I took out the lin yong pao, and hid it away first, then I passed the milo and tao sa pao to JS.

Me: Hey, we got you a packet of milo to drink with your pao.
JS: Oh! Thanks so much.
*Opens paper bag with pao*
JS: Wow. The pao looks so nice!
Me: *Desperately tries not to giggle.
JS: *pulls of a piece of pao, gives it a strange look, and takes a sniff* Hey, is this...? *takes a bite* HEY! THIS IS A TAO SA PAO!!!
Me: *bursts out laughing*
JS: YOU'RE TERRIBLE!!! YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE TAO SA PAO!!! *looks miserably at the tao sa pao and contemplates eating it*
Me: Well, good thing I bought you a lin yong pao too. *gives JS lin yong pao*
JS: TERRIBLE!!! *glares at me*

It's the $0.50 prank cos the tao sa pao only costs $0.50. And for your info, I ate the rest of the tao sa pao, and then felt sick afterward.

Oh, and I went to the airport to meet M's MEET team. I was holding M's phone, cos that time when he left, he forgot to give it to his mum when she left, so he left it with me. So I went to pass it to him. And say hi to the team as well, who all had to some degree or another, had a case of the sniffles, as in like, flu sniffles, not sentimental sniffles. Ya well.

There. That wasn't too hard now, was it. I don't even think I coherent lost sleepy arglebargle $&1...

I'm happy.

This is because, today, I managed to improve on floorball. Maybe it was just my good day, but I'm still happy.

I scored 3 this time. And two were nice long shots that somehow managed to get into the back of the net. And I managed to save a few shots while goaltending too. Whee!

I introduced sister to floorball. She's got a knack for tackling. Many people today realized it wasn't easy to get past her, after she knocked the ball out from their sticks. Haha.

And then I had to rush down to SAS for a BB meeting. But it was pretty cool.

And brother POP-ed today. Yay. Now we can play xbox together. Woot!

Got this from MS's blog.

You Are Iceman

You tried to live a normal life, but it just wasn't possible
A bit of a slacker, you rather tell jokes than cultivate your powers

Powers: turning self and others into ice, making ice weapons, becoming nearly invisible

That's like how cool.... haha... yes yes, I know, bad joke... but Iceman... maybe that's why sometimes you all can't tell what I'm thinking. That's provided I'm actually thinking in the first place lah...

On another note, I just sort of returned from Global Day of Prayer, which was pretty cool, even though it was pretty warm. Aiya. You get what I mean. Even though I was expecting more individual prayer time, and less worship, because today's one seemed more like an FOP than a prayer meeting. But it was still cool. And the worship was pretty powerful. F was especially happy with the bass, with the 'multiple sub-woofers'. So here's a pic of the stage. It's not very good, since I'm only an amateur photographer at best (i.e. no tripod) and my Canon Ixus has only 3x zoom. But well.

Oh, just fyi, we were at the National Stadium. Where I got this. Quite spur of the moment thingy.

Just to note that these were bad examples, since during the prayer session, we prayed that we would not allow distractions to get between us and God... Really didn't take me long to forget what I prayed about... really bad...

And finally, on a totally unrelated side note, this is E and J. J is very happy, because E just bought for him the can of Seasons' chrysanthemum tea, which E has apparently never done for J before. So J got a big kick out of making a big deal about it.

I'M WEAK!!!!!!

Today, I went to church to play floorball, and I couldn't play properly. It just felt wrong, and I couldn't handle the stick or the ball properly, and I couldn't pass properly, and I couldn't drive to the goal properly, and I couldn't receive passes properly and I couldn't goal tend properly, and... well, you get the idea.

And I scored only once! Bah. Not that I score very often, since I prefer playing defensively, but still...

Bleah. I need to play more. Maybe it's cos I haven't played floorball for over a month.

Or maybe it's cos I'm just getting old...
