Oh hello there...

Haha...it's been a really long time since my last blog aye...
I guess I'm such a lousy blogger...

I've been busy with assignments because this is my last semester for uni...*lemme hear ya say HOORAY!!!*

Anyway...God has been good as always...I've got lots of new dreams and visions ahead of me and I'm just excited for what He has in store...
I don't wanna tell u what I've been dreaming about until my cafe is opened...
Whoopsss...there I said it...
So yeah I've been planning how I want my cafe to be like...what menu it will have...the costumes of the waiters and waitresses...
It's gonna be awesome...
Hopefully many people will like it...

But again I'll just surrender all my plan to God coz he knows what's best for me...
Ok then...gotta go...

Hope you have a great day!!

Sass & Bide Sydney Warehouse SALE 2009...

One word to start... AWESOME!!!

Yes, the Sass & Bide Sydney Warehouse Sale was awesome...
it was and is still held from 5th-8th of November 2009...
the price reduced by 50%-70%...massive!!
i went there the first and second day...
the queue was so long and when the door was opened people were running...literally running...
and the funny thing was there was no individual changing room...
so people just stripped down right before your eyes...
it was hilarious...i didn't dare to do it though...hahaha...
so yeah...i've never been to such sale event before...great experience...

Ok...now the guilty part...
i spent around 1000 dollars here...
oh no...i hope my brothers won't see this post...or else my mom may find out...:p
at first i thought i was not gonna spend much since i was coming pretty late...
but since i am a determined person, i managed to get some good stuff...
i dug the clothes that people didn't get after they tried it on...
it was like digging rubbish really...

Here's some of what I've got...







i'm pretty satisfied with what i've got...
however, there are some stuff that i wish i could get...hahahaha...



but they were still too expensive for me T____T...

but i'm still blessed and so happy with what i've got...
and yeahh...
tomorrow is HILLSONG LIVE RECORDING 2009......can't miss it!!!



God bless,

If I were a boy...uhm??

I've been listening to Beyonce's song these days...especially If I Were a Boy...
I love the melody so much...Beyonce's beautiful voice just amazes me...
Her voice range is so wide in this song...i'm lovin' it!!

However, the song got me thinking...
some of the lyrics make a man's life so boring...like...

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken
So they'd think that I was sleeping alone


or some have the impression that men are shallow...like...

If I were a boy even just for a day
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted
And go drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls


hmmm...
I believe that men are not created just to do those things...
It's not that I forbid men to drink beer or to chase girls...it's really up to you guys...
but I just believe that God created men for bigger purposes...

Genesis 5:1 says When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.

When we think about God, things that come up in our minds can be greatness, power, strength, love, mercy, forgiving, faithfulness, joy, indescribable, and all those things that make us astounded and amazed...
That's how God wants a man to be...

God wants a man to make difference...
to be a strong leader in the family or in his job...
to be successful in everything he does...
to be someone that can protect and love a woman...
to be someone that is in the likeness of God...

Proverbs 20:27 says The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord; searching all the inner depths of his heart.

I've been reading Jentezen Franklin's book Right Plan, Right Place, Right People.
He explains that it is in times of pressure that your real spirit will come out. You may not be perfect. You may mess up and do things wrong.
But no matter what happens in your life, you need to have God's spirit, not a bitter, unforgiving, and angry spirit.

The desire of the heart of a man of God says, "Make me like Jesus. Give me the spirit of forgiveness. Give me the spirit of purity. Give me the spirit of holiness. Give me the spirit of love. Give me the spirit of Jesus."

Final Destination...

I watched Final Destination 3D yesterday and it was so good...
I softly screamed and said oh-my-God most of the time...
I mean really...nobody can cheat death...sometimes it scares me just thinking about that...
but, why should we bother worrying and being afraid if Jesus has saved us from eternal death??

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
Romans 8:1-2


What we need to worry about is...have we accepted Christ Jesus as our Savior and have we lived our lives fully committed to Him??
I'll leave that to you for the answer...

Back to Final Destination...
one of the guys (Nick) that should have been died in the race track knew that soon it was his turn to die...
so he decided to do what he does best...get laid...
hahaha...i have to admit that part was funny...
but again...

what would we do if we knew when we were going to die??
are we going to just have more fun in this earth, not knowing where we will go next??
or maybe, what would we do if we knew someone we love was going to die and he/she might not have been saved??

ugh...this is hard to answer...
but here is what Paul says...

Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11


so yeah...let's make sure that we are ready when God calls us by name...
don't forget to strengthen each other to grow stronger in Christ...

love you guys so much (i mean it)...



God bless,

Shopping Spree Result...

Oh yes...
I'm so excited writing this post...
I loved loved loved Alannah Hill...

if I bought 10 pieces, I would have sung KT Tunstall's song in my version...
Suddenly I'm Broke...

anyway...this is what I have bought...
I bought the cardigan coz the color matches with one of my Topshop dress...
and the skirt is just too sweet...I love the pattern and the material...



and yes i did try some more expensive-and-i-only-try-it-to-get-some-pics dresses...



i almost bought this one, but then i changed my mind...simply because i need to save money for the bills (how pitiful)...

but i'm sure i can buy it soon...;p

Well, that's my shopping spree result for the day...
Hope you had fun too...



God bless,
