NTUC FairPrice Interview

It was a very blessed Monday yesterday. I went out with my CG friend and accompanied her to SGH for a dental checkup. She was a bit weak thus need to make sure she don't faint halfway you know. Well, so this meant that I woke up at 7.30am and got out of house at 8.15am. She is so nice. Bought breakfast for me from Macdonalds. We travelled from Yishun to Outram. A long journey though. During the journey, I observed the working people that were rushing here and there. Some are with a stoning look. Others with a very worried and stressed look. I wonder what is the story behind their faces. Anyway after the checkup, we took cab home from there as she is not feeling quite well. When I reached home, I logged on to the internet. Not long after, I received a phone call from NTUC. It goes like, "Can I speak to Tricia please?.... Just want to inform you that you have been selected for the second interview. Are you able to make it this coming thursday.... " My heart was pumping faster and faster with joy and gladness!!!

After the phone call, I was almost on the verge of shouting for joy!!! In my heart, I praise the Lord for he really hears my prayers. I believe that not many were selected for the second interview. I'm glad. Oh yar why I think it's a miracle for them to call me is because firstly, when I fill up the application form, I ticked that I'm not ready to work OT. Secondly, I didn't bring my resume and documents that day. Cos the gal who called me say just bring my IC. Then I didn't bring any at all. But when I reached there, all the candidates brought their certs and documents. Thirdly, I think it's the salary I asked for is slightly higher than those that went with me, especially those that are fresh diploma holders from Ngee Ann, Temesak and Singapore Polys. I'm the only Nanyang diploma holder. Wow... so wonderful. Anyway do pray that I can get the job with wisdom and confidence as well. As it's so near Yishun, I guess that I'll be able to do pioneering work even more effectively. Trust God for all things amen!!!

Your love is the air that I breathe
Your grace is the place where I live
You are my peace
You're the reason that I sing

Your Word strengthens me through
Your hand comforts me from all fears
You are my God
I will praise You all of my days

Home Alone

At home alone now. Listening to "Spread The Love" now... Frankly speaking, I'm kind of in love with... ... haha... ... of course Jesus my Savior!! (Lame... i know... jona must be thinking that this gal must be siao again... haha) So what's up with me now? Don't know what to write....

Recently, before I left my ex-company, I actually printed out all my blogs (for the past year). It was a good time of reflection for my life for the past one year. There were so many grammer mistakes man!!! As I looked back, I saw many mistakes that I've committed in the past one year. My childishness, frustration, complaints, indecisiveness etc... All due to my stubborn and disobedient character... Well, i do have blessing points of cause. There are so many man. Countless. But now I want to thank God for some very dear people in my life. Those reading my blog regularly will know. Well, I think they are the ones that really are praying for me. If not praying, perhaps concerned about my current job status. "U guys are great!!"

Oh yar last Sunday I was so convicted about the sermon of God's Destiny for us that I actually composed a song. Hmm it was an inspiration through the Holy Spirit. The song was very ministering to me. :) It goes like this:

You are my Lord
You are my Jesus and all
The narrow gate that brings us to the Father
I will run to You

You are the truth
The light that revives all hearts
The way and the truth I will follow
My life belongs to You

I give You my heart
I give You my soul
Everything I am is Yours
Surrender my thoughts
Surrender my plans
Wherever You lead me I will follow

Wherever You lead me I will go

Hope that this will minister to you guys...

Amazing Interview!

On thurs, it was really an amazing time of interview with NTUC Fairprice Co-operative. There's more than one candidate for sure. When the clock strike 2.30pm, there were almost 10 people in the classroom. The lady in-charge relocated all of us into teams of 3 people each. Some has 4 though. After some introduction for herself and another guy, they gave us some materials and asked us to build a tower with a piece of A4 size that can hold 2 lemons. Then we were give 10 minutes to plan, 35 minutes to build and do a marketing proposal, convincing the judges why they should buy our concept. This is only the first round of assessment.

The second round was more like a test. For NYP students, we call the tests ICA. The questions were on Customer Relations Launch and how to draft an apologies letter to the customer who made a complaint. All in all, I wrote down the answers, one full page for each question. I really don't know what the outcome will be like but I really want to get it as the company is at Upper Thomson Rd. It is really near my house and I am sure that if i get this job it is going to be a blessing to the pioneering work that is coming up next in the North. I'll trust the Lord for this. Anyway I've already done my best. (Sounds familiar right?)

Anyway above all else, God's plan is the best!!

Rest Is Good!

In fact, to have quality rest is really important. Today is the second day since I've left my job. But still I have not had enough rest though I should. But I thank God that He blessed me with interviews so that I would not "rest" (or should I say "slack") too much. Woke up at 8.30am yesterday and 9.30am today. Woke up early to surf the web for jobs as well as to remind myself not to be too ill-disciplined. Yesterday, two companies called me up for interviews. The first one was this company call Dreamworks Advertising and the position was Sales Executive. The person spoke well (good english) and I somehow couldn't get too used to the slang. Thus, today i gave it a miss. As for the second job interview, it was from NTUC Fairprice. Nope I didn't apply for a cashier position nor a supermarket supervisor position. I applied for a Customer Relations Officer position. Before I applied for this, I was really doubtful if I'm up to this job anot. But I have decided to give it a try and now I've got selected for the preliminary round of interview. I really hope that I can get selected as I want to learn about PR and Skills Improvement for the employees and Service standard as well.

Well, all these have been indeed abundant blessings from God to me. In fact, I've already went for one interview yesterday at Bee Nah's company. It just happened that Bee Nah's company is employing sales execs that's why I've decided to give it a try too. But whatever it is, I've done my best to impress the interviewers, by not lying, by not being fake and by being myself. I did managed to talk to them and understand where they are coming from, their concern and their position. I am open for consideration of this job. Not too bad though.

Well, buddies out there who are reading my blog now, please pray for me that I can go through the interview tomorrow at NTUC smoothly. Anyway, no one bidded for any of the blessing point, guess that you guys are really praying hard for me right? LOL....

Oh yar I've watched Haunted Mansion today. Moral of the movie: Don't neglect your loved ones because of your career or work or even ministry. Start showing them some attention now!!! Hee... Take care everybody!!

Calling out for biddings of blessings

Indeed, the weekend has been really enjoyable!! I had a farewell buffet dinner with my colleagues last Friday evening at Merchant Court Hotel. Cool one!! The crayfish is nice, the dessert is nice and the cakes are nice too... Hehe it's a good thing to leave the company hor. Or else I won't have such a nice meal after all... (but i won't do that too frequently... keke) Oh yar right now, I'm calling out for biddings... I need sponsors for my expenses. Hmm definitely this is only open to people who know me. But if you want to participate, I am more than willing to accept it. Hehe. Here goes the list:

1. Transport Allowance - $120 per month (So that I can meet my sheep, serve in ministries and go home of course!! )
2. Makan - $100 (my two meals per day... either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner package)
3. Handphone Bills - $30 (every month is about $20 - $30 for each handphone)
4. Entertainment - $20 (one movie per week, $6.50 for each... the rest I'll fork them out myself)
5. Grooming - $6 (Eyebrow Trimming, once every month)
6. New Clothes - $100 (Must buy a set of new clothes every month... if not shoes also can... hehe)
This list is not a liability. It is a list of blessings. Bid for the highest and you will get back 100 folds of blessings in heavens from the Father of creation. But if you do not want to bid for any of the above, you have option 2: Pray that I get a job in line with God's plan and purpose soon. (I think majority will vote for this isn't it ?!?!? Haha)
Thanks everyone!!!
Love you guys loads....
PS: My new composition of worship song will be published soon... where?? In Xanga of course... Look out for it!!! Haha

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

Yup. This is something that I've learnt yesterday from Guang Long. Love your neighbor as yourself. Basically, we've learnt a few kinds of love that we need to grow in our Christian walk in our lives today. Divine Love, Decisive Love, Excellent Love, Unconditional Love (Agape) and ... can't remember liao. I didn't bring my notes with me. This is so much that I can remember. Well, it is a lesson that reminded me of what true love is all about. Is true love about romance, marriage or saying sweet nothings to your loved ones? Or is it basically acceptance, sacrificial, available and telling nothing but thr truth? I think it is definitely the second category. Love is already a very diluted term that have been used by so many people out there. But the true demonstration of love is when one gives even though there is no hope of receiving it back in return. When one loves and gives, he/ she is vulnerable to hurts. Very often, you think that you may receive a "Thanks a lot" from the person that you helped, but most of the times, you might even get back vice versa. So what's Love to me now? For me, to love someone is to make a decision. Being decisive to love the person no matter what the person did to me or say to me. Easier said to be done. But its is true. I might not be able to reach the perfect level but at least I know I'm working towards it.

It is a decision to say "Thank You" to the one that clears your table at the foodcourt. Your word of appreciation may just brighten up the person's day. It is a decision to say "I appreciate you for ...." as whoever that is serving you in ministry or CGs will feel so much appreciated and even strengthened to serve God in greater ways. It is a decision to say "Mom thanks for cooking the meal for me". Your Mom will be so touched by your words and cook even better food next time. (Haha!!) But all in all, behind all these thanksgiving heart and heart of appreciation is a heart that really wants to love and care for others. I don't find it easy to thank someone or love someone either. But it is the effort in the decision that you make, so that you will open your golden mouth to thank the person. Isn't it better to make the world better by loving than backstabbing?

When you truly love someone, they will come to know God eventually because God is in the actions of love that you have been showing. :)
~ Share the love, give a little precious time to care, by simply just to be there. Lend a hand, everyone needs someone to lean on. So be a friend today, show someone a better day. ~

Early Release

I will ask for an early release most likely. I will clear my 4 days leave that have been left. Quite pathetic isn't it. Well, I want to go off early so that I can go for interviews at ease. Or else, I will be quite bored at work man. (Like now?) I have handed over almost everything to the new Product Executive. Hopefully, Monday will be my last day and I can rest for a couple of days before I go on a job hunt again. I'm happy that I'm going off and tomorrow we'll be having a farewell dinner with my colleagues.... celebrating my farewell as well as another colleague's one as well. We'll be going to Merchant Court Hotel for a buffet dinner... Yummie!! Hopefully I will be well by tomorrow. I wanna eat the chocolate cakes there man!!! Yeah... ;) Currently, I'm looking for Sales and Marketing jobs that can help me develop my strengths. Today, my colleague (a senior uncle) just advised me to be a financial advisor as he thinks that I have the potential and ability. But frankly speaking, I hate to get people to buy Insurance as I don't like to chase people for money. Hmm I think my insurance agent also has a hard time servicing clients like me as well.
I just did a personality test last Sunday with Alex and Josherine. At the end of the test, my personality goes like this:
Charismatic - Commanding - Considerate - Correct
I don't like to be correct as I think I hate rules and regulations. It is so tiring to follow a set of Dos and Don'ts... So why Charismatic? I'm one that likes to meet people and I have very good interpersonal skills too. Basically, I think I can melt the hearts of those hardened ones out there... hehe (hmm by God's strength I can do it!!) I love to laugh.... really laughing my lungs out!! (??) haha Someone just spoke to me last Sunday during the Anniversary celebration, "Yanyan, you are really very talkative... haha..." and someone told me this, "You are really our kai xin guo" (in mandarin) which means I'm the happy-go-lucky girl so as to say. But frankly speaking I'm not who I am due to what they say, I am who I am due to what God created me to be. God created me to be the top 15%.... hehe I think so if I didn't remember wrongly, the ones that are full of energy, outspoken and never tired of meeting people. Hmm but I do feel tired of talking at times. When I'm quiet, something can be really wrong. Either I'm sick, not feeling well or down emotionally. So people, don't think that I'm always so jovial but I do have my down times too.
Hmm I guess it is only right if I can offer my prayers to God now.
"Father, I need your very divine help and powers to guide me and lead me now at this moment. Though I do not know what lies ahead in my future, but Lord, I know that You have prepared the best for me in my life. Show me your ways through miraculous ways so that I'll know that it is You who blesses me and not by any pure coincidences at all. Teach me to walk in your light so that men on earth can see You in me. I am nothing but only a sheep that needs the Chief Shepherd so much. Secure my heart with your very Word and let your Holy Spirit strengthen my soul. Only You can make me whole. I pray that you will continuously prepare me to bear much fruit, fruit that will last for your glory. Give me compassion so that I'll love the lost as much as You have poured out Your love for them. Thank You Jesus for everything. I love You to the best that I know how. Thank You. In Your Son's most precious name I pray, Amen!"

Busy Day!!

Have not been to work for two days. The moment I stepped into the office today, I realised that I have many undone tasks that need to be accomplished by that morning. To my amazement, the manager that used to be handling my department had his last day yesterday. (Didn't even manage to wish him best...) Well, working here is like that. You never know when's is the next one having his/her last day here. So the new Product Executive has reported to work this morning. He'll be taking over my position. And now, Michelle has to oversee her regional job as well as the local one. Guess that she'll be piled with lots and lots of work in the office.
Spoken to my HR cum Finance Manager just now. She asked me how am I doing for the past two days... (In fact many whom saw me this moring sent their regards to me...) And at the end of the conversation she told me that the management might want me to clear my leave next week before my last day... (They just don't want to pay for my leave) Well, I kept complaining to her that this is so unfair for me. Hmm but come to think of it, maybe I should have a good short break before I start on another new job. I know that God will be granting me one really soon. I'm really anticipating for it!!
Looking into a more Sales-oriented job now as I strongly believe that this is one of my strengths. I can't do Customer Service as it is too boring and I'm too impatient listening to the complaints. I can't do admin as it will be too boring. Sales is challenging though it has its stress as well. I pray that God will give me a secure job that allows me to work towards an advancement in my career and my service to Him will always be a PRIORITY. Glory and honor to His name!!

MC again. This time round down with flu and sore throat. Must be due to the sinful ice-cream that I ate yesterday with Jane at Cafe Cartel. But even before I ate the ice-cream, I was already having running. nose. (Been sneezing 5 times since I started typing this entry) Can't stop this sneezing thingy... hated running nose.... I think must be nephew and niece who passed the flu bug to me... now they are well, and I am not... haha... but I rather I'm the one that's sick. U noe kids cry a lot when they are not feeling well.... at least I don't cry like they do. Keke

Anyway I went to Jonaphine's company for an interview yesterday. It was a great one. The lady who interviewed me was very nice and helpful... Whether I can get the job anot is one thing, but at least I know that there are still nice people around in the working society. Hehe I'm just glad to meet her. Looking forward to the Unit combined CG this Thurs... God is moving!!! Amen?!?

Hope 13th Anniversary - The Best Is Yet To Come

*Rejoicing in my heart!! The anniversary has finally come to an end yesterday. And we have ended our 1.5 months of training and singing for our choir. It was really a period of hardwork and discipline. It has indeed been fun and fruitful to be in the choir, singing and praising God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. Indeed, to minister to God and people has always been my desire. Although it has been such a long time since I sang on stage but the feeling of being used by God as a stage minister is so fulfilling. Throughout the practices and training, I've learnt lots of things from Christella, my Choir Coordinator cum Trainer. She's an inspiration to all. Not because she can sing really well, (but she does have this gifting) but it is her spirit of serving that inspired us to serve God even more. Many may say, "hmm I think Christella cannot sing as well as Ginny" or "Christella's voice is not strong enough", but to me all these doesn't matter. What's most important is that God has used her to influence many of us during this period and her heart is right, solely for the Lord.

When Ps Ben shared about the Kingdom-minded mentality from Matt 6:33, it has left a mark in my heart. I did not managed to sit through the sermon, but my heart was touched by what he shared. We think of the vision, dream of the vision and eat with the vision in our hearts. Vision-mindedness. Every decision we make, every step we take, every word we say, does it build the Kingdom of God up? Something that all might know, but something that we might not have practised enough. Well, it's never too late to experience His love and grace now. My Story thru HiStory. In fact, I'm really excited of what God is to do in teh upcoming pioneering in Yishun through GN4 and others as well. I pray that he will use me to be an Evangelism tool to the lost out there. "Lord, soften the ground for us. Use us as You've used Moses and Paul." My heart is pumping faster when I think about the Vision and growing His church. Perhaps, I must start to plan when do I want to go for missions trips and church planting eventually. Let's run the race with the baton of Vision in our hands. Amen?!? Brothers and sisters??

Eating a very very nice curry puff now at my desk... *hungry!! And it's $0.80 only. Keke...Have been so busy for the entire day that I have no time for short snacks like this... Not supposed to have spicy, deep fried, curry, coffee, tea and soft drinks for the entire week. Anyway had a very busy and frustrating morning with my work. Trying my very best to print out documents with chinese fonts like MingLiu and PMingLiu. But guess what, printed the document for almost ten times, there's still bound to have chinese words that turn out to be . . . Yes literally dots everywhere in the powerpoint slides. I almost wanted to bash my PC up. Moreover, the powerpoint files are in MB size that everytime I open one file and make changes to it, I got to shut down my PC and restart it again due to the lack of memory. Counting the number of times of shut downs... a total of 10 to 12 times I guess. That's why I'm so pissed. My manager kept asking me to do this and that but not considering that I have other things to accomplish for him. Moreover, everything seems to be so last minute and so call "urgent" for him. I don't understand why the way the company do things is always so inconsistent, no system, no proper instructions. For just a simple piece of order form, I can change it for more than 20 times. Hmm perhaps I really have difficulty working with people like this. Maybe this Marketing Coordinator job just doesn't suit me at all. Anyway, trust that some of you guys can identify with me isn't it? Anyway, it's Friday, thank God isn't it??

Thursday, March 11, 2004

Well, life still goes on for me even though I've already tendered my resignation to my boss. But you know something, I was quite worried that my GM will give me hell when she comes back from United States. But guess what, today she actually smiled at me and tried to converse with me. It's kind of unusual. But I know the reason behind this smile. Michelle was talking to her in her room yesterday for quite sometime. My GM was telling Michelle that my immediate boss has tendered and I've tendered too. She was trying to persuade Michelle to extend my stay if they still cannot hire the right person for my position. And since I still cannot find the right job, why not work untill they find a proper replacement then I can leave. I was really wondering when Michelle told me all this. But I guess this is also the reason why my GM was so friendly to me today. But my poor manager has already "kena" from her a few times already for the day. I think it is just another way to make people work for you when you have no other ways out. But I've have had enough empty promises from them ever since the KL assignment. Even if I want to extend my stay, it's solely for Michelle as I do not want her to overwork too, bearing three persons' jobs?? It's too tedious. And now, my manager really has no mood to work already. He has the very "bo chup" attitude now and he just doesn't care if he get things done anot. Well, but at least I still give my best to the company, though as "best" as last time. Guess that attitude makes a very BIG difference. So leave this with you guys:
~ It is your ATTITUDE that determines your ALTITUDE, not your APTITUDE that determines your ALTITUDE. ~

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar......and the coffee."

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed
that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous " Yes."

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

" Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, " I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things like your family, your children, your health, your friends, your favourite passions, things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house,and your car. The sand is everything else, like the small stuff."

" If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, " there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. " I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend".

It's a Fantastic Day !!!

Yesterday was the rehearsal with the band for our anniversary. It was a real FABULOUS time man!! There were guitar, drums, keyboards, cello, bass, violin, 3 Lead Worshippers and a 50 people choir. The choir was pretty cramped up at the platforms. The tenors, sops as well as alto... (dunnoe if I spelt them correctly) were trying to squeeze themselves into the space given. Though we were quite constrained with the space given, but all of us were really ENJOYING ourselves. Oh yar!! I will not be able to attend the Care Group that's coming up on thursday as there will be a full dress rehearsal. I'm sorry GN3 and GN4, I can't attend the last combined CG. I'm pretty upset actually.... but it's ok.... I'll be there with you guys in the spirit. But I'm really looking forward for PEOPLE to come to know God during this coming anniversary, don't you feel the same as I do? I am really praying for friends I know to come to church but I don't know how. Simply by faith and the Lord's invitation I guess.
Anyway guys... let's do something interesting in Xanga.
A verse a day keeps the devil away.
Let's encourage one another with a different verse everyday in the brothers' and sisters' blog. This will help to remind us about His promises and that we should claim it no matter what. God's promises will be fulfilled and the devil has no foothold in our lives. Thus, I shall start the ball rolling. There we go:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD , "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
If you would like to join us in this exercise, feel free to do so. We are more than happy to welcome you into our Hope family. Thus, I'll see verses rolling in xanga soon. If you don't have any bible with you now, go to this webbie... should be able to help you. :)

hope 13th Anniversary

Ever wonder how busy you will get if you are really serious about serving God? Haha here is a life example:
Monday - Training a Nexus (CLC1)
Tuesday - Choir Practice for Church anniversary
Wednesday - Practise for CG Praise & Worship
Thursday - Actual CG
Friday - Full Dress Rehearsal for Church Anniversary Service
Saturday - Shepherding with my shepherd and followed by two consecutive Youth services
Sunday - 2 Sunday services and 1 Mandarin service
Amazed and feel challenged? Hmm there's practically no way that I can go home and rest early except perhaps Wednesday after I finished my practice for P & W. But u know something? I'm more than happy to give my all to the Lord. Yes, sincerely... cross my heart man. Indeed, I know many of the people around the world are reading my blog now. Haha... if God is not real, which other god can be better than Him? one who change lives and touch hearts, one who brings many miracles to our lives. One who blesses us even at times when we do not know. One who is always there for us. No one else can be as real as Him. So you know why I serve God so hard now. I ever wrote in my blog before that "I missed serving God", when I was still stuck in my KL assignment. Now I'm back, I shall fulfill what I've promised. I'll serve God even better than last time. So whatever I can, whatever I should, I shall give Him my best.
So believers, (all eyes closed, all heads bowed... no one moving around) hehe.... do respond to the point. Give God your all for He deserves it. Your all prayers, your all in worship, your all in serving Him your all and all. Kekeke.... pls respond by putting your hand on your heart and pray a simple prayer of rededication to Him once again.

He hears you and He LOVES you!!

Love ya loads,

Listening to You Are My World now... feeling very melancholy and sleepy at the same time. "You are my world, You are my God and I lay down my life for You"... Hmm wondering if I will really do that one day. In fact for this entire week, I've been really busy with the work of God. It seems that I'm really laying down my life for Jesus. But it seems to be not enough. I want to do more. The spirit is willing and the body is weak. Truely, I know that God has instored for me many wonderful plans and blessings. I really want to serve Him while I can. Somehow, I have this very funny feeling in me. Something not right. It is not struggles, not some hidden sins. But something is just not too good. Don't know what it is. Will let you know when I know. Hehe... Well, Hope Of God Church's Anniversary is coming this coming 14 March. And we are turning 13 this year. After so many many years of perseverance and diligence in God's work, we have finally turned 13. Seen so many ups and downs of the church, from a church that is always on the move to a church settled in the heart of town, I'm amazed and touch at what God has done in the lives of many today. Frankly speaking, it's not so bad to be single after all, especially at this point of my life. I want to give my best to the Lord. Now, people needs the Lord more than anything. his sheep that are astray at this moment, they need a God-sent shepherd to bring them back to the sheep pen and to the green pastures, to the final destination. My heart is pumping for the lost. I know that I really have to do something for the Lord and His people. Haha... I just don't know why... Keep saying that i want to do something but not knowing what I want to do. Sometimes, it can be really lonely as it is tough to find someone that can identify with my heartbeat for the Lord. Saw my very good buddy today. But I can't imagine that our conversation was a "Hi" and "Bye" only. He/she just walked past me after saying Hi to me. Seems hard to believe but it is true. Well perhaps it is just tiredness. Well, emotions aside.
Finally, the first album of Hope of God church is out!! It is called Elpizo (Hope in Greek). Wow... it's so great to see the birth of our worship album. This is the first one but there will be more coming. All are our very own songs. Songs that are God-given. I'll support for sure!! Haha no piracy ok?? It's their hardwork and heartwork. So let's honor them as well. Anyway coming up on 20th will be the first Peirce Secondary graduates gathering. Well, the school is inviting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year graduates to go back for a High Tea session. Actually I'm not too sure about whether I should go back anot but I think I will cos I wanna outreach to my friends mar... need some contacts lor... hee... Oh yar, update a bit. My manager tendered his resignation one week after me. Amazing man. I think he has already decided to quit but I manage to be faster in action. Now, the Chinese Label has no one else to take care of except my poor colleague, Michelle. Hmm but pray hard that they will not extend my stay in the company.
So excited for the coming up anniversary. If you are keen to visit my church, you can visit http://www.hopesingapore.org.sg or leave me a comment and I can guide you along to my church at Somerset. Hope to see ya there!! Take care and cheers!!!
Serving in Christ,

A God That Never Fails

He never fails to PROVIDE when I am in need

He never fails to CHEER me when I am in uncertainty

He never fails to PULL me out when I am in the darkest valley

He never fails to BRING me to another mountain on His wings

He never fails to FEED me when I'm hungry

He never fails to LEAD me when I'm lost

He never fails to CONSOLE me when I fail

He never fails to MOTIVATE me when I'm discouraged

He never fails to STRENGTHEN me when I'm weak

He never fails to REBUKE when I'm in wrong

He never fails to WHISPER into my ears to affirm me

He never fails to GENTLY CORRECT me when I sin

He never fails to LOVE me as I am

He never fails to GRANT grace as I live

He never fails to FORGIVE when I sin

He never fails to INITIATE reconciliation when I'm led astray

He never fails to SMILE when I sing praises unto Him

He never fails to ACCEPT an imperfect me

He never fails to RESCUE me when I'm in danger

He never fails to LISTEN to my little prayers

Woah!! Today is going to be a very hilarious day!! I wore the wrong combi of clothes to work!!! wahaha!! I wore the black color Matrix like dress with a dark blue pants which totally doesn't match at all !! Frankly speaking, I knew this the moment I stepped out of my house. But I just couldn't care much cos I was already late. Oops... really feel so clowny now. Later still got to chair for CG, I think it's gonna get farnie. Anyway, I can't do anything now except to ask God to change the color of my pants... or to blind the eyes of the people that I'm going to meet later. Hehe.... so those reading my blog today, especially my GN3 and GN4, pls do not suan me ok... I'm like the mix up swan that Jona used to call herself... keke... Anyway have a great day ahead!!
