chinese new year.

The highlight, I think, of Chinese New Year 2012, was yesterday's visit to my former boss's house.

Because there, I found a heart that echoes mine.

All I want to do is practice law.

Nine active Christian lawyers in Malacca.

God willing, I will be the tenth.

I don't know if it's because I left MGC, or because of the year-long advocacy course, but I feel like I've lost "it".

I can't lead anymore, the way I used to in MGC.
I've lost the confidence in organising ice-breakers.
I feel strange when I'm asked to lead worship.
I'm less proactive than I used to be.

I think I'm less intelligent and less analytical too.

Devastating, for both a student of the law of God and the law of man.

How do I get "it" back when I don't even know what "it" is?

Or maybe I've just become more brethren. (yes, it's an adjective)

First YF Saturday of 2012.

I'm back in PJ and blogging when I should be studying.

I think I'm at that point of my life as a student.

The -Ever Point, i.e.:

(Whatever lah this exam)

(Die leh if I fail)

(I'll be in UM forever...)

(... and ever...)

(*eerie echo*)

When did I become so lame? I used to be quite serious.


Was so long ago i think only my siblings remember.


Two students made me very happy today.

I will share my joy after my -Ever exam.

i'm still getting used to...

...people asking me for legal advice.

It's weird.

Really weird.

Makes me feel like studying harder.



So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart. 

Now it happened, when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites heard that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored and the gaps were beginning to be closed, that they became very angry, and all of them conspired together to come and attack Jerusalem and create confusion. 

Nevertheless we made our prayer to our God, and because of them we set a watch against them day and night.
Then Judah said, “The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubble that we are not able to build the wall.”
And our adversaries said, “Before they know it or see us, we will be right there among them and will kill them and put an end to the work.”
So it was, when the Jews who dwelt near them came, that they told us ten times over, “Wherever you turn, they will attack us.”
Therefore I positioned men behind the lower parts of the wall, at the openings; and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows. 

And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, 

“Do not be afraid of them. 
Remember the Lord, 
great and awesome, 
and fight for your brothers, 
your sons, 
your daughters, 
your wives, 
and your homes.” 

Nehemiah 4:7-14

I was moved reading this today. 

I was just talking yesterday, about the times we thought we couldn't do something, that it was impossible to survive..

I've had those times, the worst of them being in 2010. 

In 2011, I turned around and looked, the way Nehemiah did, and I was amazed. I remember what I said then - "How far we've come!"

People who don't believe in miracles are people who've never looked back and said just that - 

How far we've come.

I don't do year-end evaluations anymore, because ever since 2010, my year begins and ends in May.

Posted this before - 

when the world says you can't,
it'll tell you that you can.
what is it?

"yay ken!"

Since you're out here, you might as well help me hang clothes!

No! I have to go inside and put down my bag and then miraculously lose my power to walk. *runs inside*
