When a person is there, you will want to try connecting to him or her. But when the person is out of sight, sometimes, he/ she will also be out of your mind.

I felt really disconnected to my circle of friends now. Out of the home church now, I don't get to see them nor I do get to talk to them. Some sms me, some message me in facebook, some doesn't do anything. But come to think of it, if I want to connect with them, that will be really a lot of work to do.

I do miss the circle of friends, but as some of us get into different stage of life, it can get quite taxing to keep up with the pace of friendships. Therefore, your circle of friends gets smaller. So, I do think that I will want to keep my circle of friends smaller so that I can manage them well.

For those that haven't meet up for a long time, let's make effort to do so.

And yes, I miss you guys... and you know that I am talking about you... :p

Take care. Hope to see ya soon!

Yes!! I've signed up for my degree course and also going to budget my finances for now for my studies. And also, I've changed my plans about studying at UCD. I've decided to go for Swinburne instead. Thought that this course will be more manageable on my end.

And the modules for Bachelor of Business (Marketing) are:

Marketing Behaviour
International Marketing
Product Management
Survey Research Methods
Service Marketing and Customer Relationship Management
Marketing Law
Integrated Marketing Communication
Strategic Marketing Planning Project

The modules are simply appetisizing for me and I feel like eating them up!

haha... I am so excited to study a full marketing course so that I can equipp myself better at job.

Hope to build myself up in my studies. And it is never too late to learn. :)

The best part is that my company is going to shift to Dhoby Ghaut in December and this meant even better location for my studies. Thank God for His favor.

Yeah! Thanks be to Him!

Building Friendships at Work

I wonder how many people really make friends out of work. For me, I definitely find that friendships at work help me a lot in making workplace a more fun place to work in. That is also why my circle of friends keep on adding... majority are my ex-colleagues and current colleagues... and that is super scary.

Yes, don't think of even asking me how many jobs I've been in cos that will be too many to count. But at every job, there are bound to be some pple that I always keep in touch with.

I kinda miss some of them every now and then because the memories that I store up in my brain harddisk always make me laugh at myself.

In fact, many of them are friends that I can just talk to and be frank with.

Somehow, work is just fun when you have people that you can link with...

And simply to say, I do enjoy working life a lot... :P

The Confident Woman

The Confident Woman
By Joyce Meyer

This week was quite a crazy one. Monday was a mad rush of doing stuff for my colleagues in the office. And Tuesday came and I got to bring my mum to the hospital for a day surgery... a minor one to check her womb.

While I was waiting for my mum, I have decided to take a shuttle bus and go to Novena Square for some shopping etc. However, after walking around, I have decided to sit down somewhere to read the book that someone gave to me since Feb... and I haven't read it at all. So I've decided to give it a go.

I'm not a fan of Joyce Meyer. Never read her books before. I did listen to her sermon once or twice when I was in my previous job in training, but still, I am not the kind of reader that will go for her books.

But this time round, it was really different. It seemed that there are a lot of things she shared in the book really got me thinking. I thought that I heard God's voice so clearly in the book of what she wrote. Of course, I know that there must be a balance in reading and hearing God's voice but the prompting of the Holy Spirit was so strong.

It was just on Monday that I told Alex whether I should just give up studying this year and move on in my normal routine of job etc. I wasn't able to give a clear reasoning on why I want to give up studying (since it has always been my dream...). I told him that I was unsure because I am not sure if intellectually I am able to cope. I am also worried about my physical condition as well as my work load in my job. I am basically worrisome. However, I was not able to recognise that these are basically excuses to feed my fears in my heart. I was just so fearful. I was not confident. We didn't continue to talk about it as I wasn't in my best state, and we left it there and decided to talk about it the next day.

And yes, the next day was exactly the day that I read this book and it was only in the first chapter that God put such deep conviction in my heart, "Do not miss out what I have instored for you." I was absolutely amazed. Sitting at such a noisy Ah Mei cafe at Novena Square during lunch hours, I could hear God speaking so audibly... "Do not give up.."

And yes, I will keep on moving on and not give up.

I was so overjoyed when I know what God has spoken into my spirit and I know that I can move on because He is always with me, backing me up.

2009: It must be God

I can't help but to note this down (maybe becuase I haven't been disciplined to take note of things around me). I should say that God has been very merciful to me in my life. Despite the many personal challenges and testings, His faithfulness has always been there.

At the point when I felt the least of faith in my heart, God has proved me a thousand times wrong. I know that I should have trusted in Him more and more. I should have placed my little mustard seed faith in Him so that the fruit will be even greater.

However, I should still thank Him for all that has happened for the glory of His mighty power. Looking at my life now, it was almost an impossible a year ago. However, God gave me a better job than the previous, colleagues that empower me in my role, a job that seek to serve others more than myself.

It must have been God. It couldn't be coincidental at all. It must be God.

Despite the many faults in me, God still chose to love me and treat me with His tenderness. It is such a shame that I am not returning my love to Him as much as He does for me. Perhaps this is how God exemplifies His wondrous love for us. Our love can never be compared to His and that He has never require us to repay Him in any way.

I am much humbled, really.

And yes, more surprises will be coming my way later this year. I will be expecting God to act in my life.

Lord, here I am, use me.
