since i'm so practical -

Here's my schedule today for those who're thinking of coming over to do weird surprises:

1900 - 2030 |  Free dinner at the Faculty of Law

2045 till I fall asleep sitting down |  Thesis

Yes, it's that simple for tonight.


I'm being practical.


Come before I fall asleep sitting down! =P

birthday SMS.



23 years old huh? Sounds old man. One day you’ll catch up and overtake me.


Tse Hwei

Yup, if science permits. =P



You saying that Curious Case of Benjamin Button or the Time Traveler’s Wife is not a scientific journal ah?


Tse Hwei

Yalor, quite a baseless assumption hor? Science is more liberal than that! =P

although i've read this a thousand times...

The case of Law Tanggie v. Untong a/k Gantang & Anor (1993):

The plaintiff was underaged when he bought a piece of land in Sarawak, and he wasn't a native. So he entrusted the defendant with the management of the land until he reached the age of majority and acquired native status.

And guess what?

The defendant transferred the land to his daughter as a - get this - gift.

When the plaintiff asked for the land, the daughter refused to transfer it.

We read these cases all the time, but I'm still shocked at how despicable people can be.

counting my blessings again.

I've been waking up an hour later than planned for the past week. 

It's a good thing I plan to wake up very early. Like, 6AM kind of early. 

But I suppose nothing can beat the six-hours-lateness on Tuesday. 

Slept at 11.44PM, hoping to wake up at 12.05AM to continue working on the presentation for Trust. Apparently, I'd set my alarm to 12.05PM instead, so I woke up at 6.43AM. 

Woke up 1t 8.05AM today, an hour and five minutes later than planned, and rushed the last bits of that Public International Law 24-hour (which was half of that for me, because of my awesome schedule) take-home test. 

Didn't like the prickles on my skin because of the realization that I was 'late' (because I had classes right after), but I supposed God thought I needed rest.

I still love what I do, but there's just so much to do in so little time. 

I don't wish I had more time, because as I said earlier - I don't think I will accomplish any more than I do now with the current sandwiched-ness of time.

Speaking of sandwiches, Grace's APK group is selling sandwiches for RM1 today. Either the price of bread and eggs went down, or the sandwiches are really small. 

Alternatively, Grace was mistaken about the price of the sandwiches.


I love sandwiches, so I shall be there.


Signing out, with much off-ness in the head.

But I must say, that I still love reading Law. =)

What's the verdict?

Easter 2011 is officially over. At least for PKV.

The rooster didn't crow the first night. HAHA.

And the rooster sounded like a guitar last night. Double HAHA.

Where did the rooster go?

It crossed the road!

Ya. I haven't recovered from the late nights. Whee~


I've tried all other means of doing tasks and I've found that the best way is still the To-Do List way.

So, I'm back to using a lot of paper.


Helping with the script for the last scene with the other law students was quite fun. Hee.

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

step up, hwei.

Need to be better.

When you go out to defend your client, there is no place for overlooking anything.

A slight dent in precision makes for no precision at all!

You know Your plans.

i'm so tired.

Yes, I realize that I have an obsession with time.

And the post named "Time".

Was delighted to read this in Gmail today.

"Make time, save time, while time lasts.
All time is no time when time is past."

The Lord fights the battles and wins the war.
He's doing practically everything.
What excuse do I have not to work?
What excuse do I have not to pray?

A self-rebuke post.
Which I think,
many can post on their blogs for themselves.

Delete the stuff above the quote though.

Those are purely for me.

people, people.

I remember looking at the broken pieces of the ceiling and the flood of water on the ground in the PKV room and feeling devastated. 

Defeat is one of the most overwhelming feelings to bear, and defeat is what our Japanese brothers and sisters are feeling.

Even if they rebuild their lives, where do they begin? 

From the pieces of rubble around them, because there is nothing left.

How can we watch people in their pain,
and still seek gain for ourselves?
Where has it gone?
The heart for people?
Are we not human anymore?

Our hearts are heavy.
The destruction is greater than we first imagined,
and we find ourselves crying to God 
to have mercy upon the Japanese people.
The time between the mighty earthquake and the tsunami
was simply too short for many to escape.

-- Update from Sapporo, Japan.

Pray for mercy.

i knew it i knew it i knew it

I knew he'd do it!

It was just a matter of when.

I was right to call him a brown cookie!

finally! mc!

I finally got the MC I needed. After two weeks. (who visits the clinic three times in three weeks?) And even so, the doctor didn't really want to give it to me. I thank God for the nurse (who looked fierce at first, but turned out to be so nice) who induced the doctor into giving me an MC for tomorrow.

I think I walked around a bit too much during DMSJ. Whee.

It's a good thing I don't play sports, I guess. This isn't as devastating as it would've been then. But walking slowly is quite taxing. I don't know how people do it. Hah.

Tomorrow is Project Paper Day. Yay.

Do or die, Hwei. 

Do or die.

I will lose nothing.

For I have come down from heaven,
not to do My own will,
but the will of Him who sent Me.
This is the will of the Father who sent Me,
that of all He has given Me
I should lose nothing,
but should raise it up at the last day.
And this is the will of Him who sent Me,
that everyone who sees the Son
and believes in Him may have everlasting life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:38-40 

Lord Jesus, help me live my everlasting life.
I go to You for my daily bread.

Will You really lose nothing? 
I weep because I dare to hope.

"Hey you, I bet as usual you're wide awake scheming to trap people by posting their SMSes on your blog. Just want to ask, where is Kolej Ketiga Tunku Kurshiah Universiti Malaya ah? : )"

This, and me blogging this, would make a really good cartoon strip, wouldn't it?


pei ling asked if i could drive to kajang this week.

I'm going back to Malacca this weekend for the annual quiz between four churches. Whee~

Pei Ling
Ohhh. The kalah takpa asal gaya?

Refer to this, towards the end. Haha.

when malaccans email.

from madwoman's FB.

Helloe guys, 

Attached is the document for the games. Please take a look. We will brief you soon!


You really gave me the easiest job. XD

And apparently you don't trust me to count cuz you put an accountant there with me! I'm appalled at your lack of faith! Bah!



Well helloe guys,

Here is the updated version of the games' rules and stuff. Note to Tse Hwei. Ahem... We took offense at your remark regarding our lack of faith. Hence, we changed your partner to a nerd instead. Thou shall now work with a nerd. Bah! Hamburger!!! 


Good to see you repented! =P

it's not time to read this yet, but.

"Lord, to whom shall we go?
You have the words of eternal life.
We have come to believe and to know
That You are the Holy One of God."

John 6:68-69

This really moved me.

To whom shall I go?
You have the words of eternal life.

I said before that I love words.

I'm very affected by words.

EP says that I'll probably be swept off my feet by a sweet-talker.

When I get to heaven, the first mystery I'd like to uncover is whether words can indeed be seen in heaven.

Words of eternal life -

Can you picture how much this means to me?

I also shared before that I didn't understand what it meant for God to be righteous and holy and without fault, until I began to perceive how people I looked up to were not always righteous, not always holy, and never without fault.

My unsuccessful quest for a pious believer of another faith has also led me to the same conclusion.

"The Holy One of God" - 

If Peter had meant every word, 
then this means much indeed.

a lighter yoke.

I'm a normal student outside PKV, Bible studies, CG, committee meetings and EXCO meetings.

I'm just a university student when I'm having my lunch while checking my email in Tiara.

I'm just a law student when I'm in the lecture hall.

I'm just a CG member when I'm waiting for my rice with sweet and sour chicken after CG.

I wish.

If it were possible, I ask for a lighter yoke.

No random stranger calling me during lunch,
No receiving feedback during dinner,
No adding another item to the to-do list before lectures.

This is not my comfort zone. 

But such a thing was never promised when I said yes.

Solomon, I understand why you asked for wisdom.

Today I begged God not to throw another question right back at me.

I need answers, not another question.

But I suppose I must answer another question before I can be given more wisdom.

"My food," said Jesus,
"is to do the will of Him who sent me
and to finish His work."

John 4:34

Everyone has been working hard too. How can I give any less?

Give me that hunger to be Your servant.

another observation.

FES Staff

Hey Es, are you around tomorrow? Can you send Jessica and Hooi Ping back to UM tomorrow? I'm playing the piano for the kids.

Sure, no problem. See you tomorrow. 

Tank ewe!

You called me ewe. I dowan to fetch d. :-P

But but I also called you tank. Tanks are cool!

Haha. K. I fetch.

Youth Leader

*walks over and steps on my foot*


*snickers* Eh what happened to your foot?

Terpijak longkang. 


Then on the way to the clinic the next day, terpijak another longkang.

You should sue MPPJ for not closing their drains!

Oh. The drains were closed.

What were you wearing? High heels ah!

Er no. Shoes.


Conclusion: The more you work with young people, the crazier you become. 

i have decided.

Maybe it's time to concede defeat.

To whoever it is I'm conceding defeat to. (reveal yourself, you!) 

I think I shall move on with my life now.


"We thank You that You don't lose Your sheep."

I look tired because I am tired.

Maybe I'm still smiling because I've gone into unswitch-offable hyper mode.

Smile, because the whole world smiles at you.


I always thought that was rather silly, because it's a great, unfounded generalization.

Sometimes the world doesn't smile when you smile. Sometimes nobody smiles back.

Smile, because...

When the going gets tough, the Christian...

...endures and abounds in faith, hope and love.

I filled in Mark's blank that way. 

We remember before our God and Father 
your work produced by faith
your labor prompted by love
and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 

1 Thessalonians 1:3

I know whom I have believed.

2 Timothy 1:12

I know whom I have believed.

Do you?

who says law students can't count?

(Public: "You kan the one who always says that? -_-")

Picture taken from this site.

I'm thankful for the parking space I found in the field when I had to park outside the faculty.

I'm thankful for the umbrella I had when I had to walk to the faculty under the sun.

I'm thankful for the 9am class that was postponed to 10am when I was 25 minutes late.

I'm thankful for the coursemate who offered me a ride when the other didn't.

I'm thankful for the angel that protected me from getting hit by cars when I squatted by the road.

I'm thankful I have a foot to twist after stepping into a drain.

I'm thankful for the car I could hobble to.

I'm thankful for the cleaners who'd helped make the PKV booth less of a disaster so I didn't have to clear away too much debris.

I'm thankful for the huge unused rubbish bin I could empty the pieces of the ceiling panel into.

I'm thankful I got to choose between waffles and chicken rice because I couldn't go home.

I'm thankful for the piano I could play because everyone else was having lunch.

I'm thankful for the last two ponstan pills I found in my bag for The Pain.

I'm thankful for the vice president who taught me that the flood of water on the floor could evaporate even without a piece of sky over it. (haha science koyak)

I'm thankful for the one who offered to carry my bag which felt like it contained gold that day.

I'm thankful for the Hup Seng biscuits that awaited me when I got home hungry.

I'm thankful for the bed I got to collapse on to sleep away The Pain.

I'm thankful that I finally got the sleep I needed because I woke up later than expected.

I'm thankful I'm a law student who has a project paper to rush.

I'm thankful for the supervisor whose name I can abbreviate in email because she's just so cool.

I'm thankful I was detained at the clinic because class got canceled anyway.

I'm thankful that I can limp around in the hospital because I'm not lying immobile on a hospital bed.

Count your blessings,
Name them one by one.
And it will surprise you
What the Lord has done.

- Johnson Oatman, Count Your Blessings.

I'm sorry for not counting properly yesterday.

so distracted.

EP lost her phone one day, and a good Samaritan called me to report it.

Swee Kit
Have you given any thought as to why he called you among so many contacts?

Hm. My last SMS to EP was: "It's a good thing I'm not God. Cuz if I were God, the first thing I'd do is to make sure the vegetables never survived The Flood."

Swee Kit
...Maybe it was your humour then.

Or! Maybe he thought it was just so profound. *bangga*

But seriously, the guy called and gave his number so that EP could call him and meet him to get the phone. And he was so persistent! Such an awesome person. As Swee Kit said - there's hope for this world!

I like how Noah totally ignored what was going on. =P

childlike faith.

Hannah led the worship in the Law CG today, using the theme of 'childlike faith'.

JOY that is down in my heart,
Deep, deep down in my heart.
Jesus gave it to me,
And no one can destroy it.

With Christ in the vessel,
I can smile at the storm.

Jesus loves me, this I know.

For the Bible tells me so.
We are weak, 
But He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
The Bible tells me so.

Thank You, Jesus, 
For Your love to me.
Thank You, Jesus,
For Your grace so free.
I'll lift my voice to praise Your name -
Praise You again and again.
You are everything.
You are my Lord.

I forgot.
I grew up and forgot all of this.
I was moved because I remembered,
that Jesus loves me.
And I was ashamed,
because I withheld love.

How could I forget?

I even forgot what I wrote once:

There will always be grace. 
(because we are in the period of grace)
But this is my prayer - 
let some of that grace come from me.

Jesus Christ, 
I think upon Your sacrifice.
Many times, 
I've wondered at Your gift of life,
And I'm in that place once again.

Again I pray, 

Let some of that grace come from me.
