Camp CastAway!

Camp CastAway is hilarious!!!

Really enjoyed watching the campers in their "KODAK" moments!
Who can forget...
- Tian Yi w his "studious" look & intensive praying?

- Darwin & Jason dancing around the banana tree

- Jon Choo w his endless "surround-sound system" roar

- Yan Ming w his hokkien interpretation... "Jesus' very good"

- The various Spoof Awards... "Chio Bu" & "Flasher" etc.

The exaggerated dramas made you laugh & laugh, until you forget to realise... "Wait a minute! What's the link to the original bible story?"

Nobody cares! The crowd totally enjoyed themselves in the hot & stuffy room! You just GOT TO BE THERE at the scene to fully appreciate the HUMOUR!

After svc yesterday, the subzone gathered for lunch and we could not help but to keep on talking fondly abt the camp for H-O-U-R-Ssss!!! The jokes just went go on & on.... :)

Overall, Camp CastAway is F-U-N!!!

Love Yourself

I heard this familiar song in the car just now...
Like the meaningful lyrics but not so much the title... Haha... Enjoy!
"Stay the Same"- Joey Mcintyre
Don't you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly.
Don't you ever say you don't like the way you are.
When you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far.
And I hope you always stay the same,
cuz there's nothin' 'bout you I would change.
I think that you could be whatever you wanted to be
If you could realize, all the dreams you have inside.
Don't be afraid if you've got something to say,
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way.
Believe in yourself.
Reach down inside.
The love you find will set you free.
Believe in yourself, you will come alive.
Have faith in what you do.You'll make it through.
If you're not at peace w yourself, how can you be at peace w others?

Handphone Trouble

It all started when Aunt accidentally dropped my beloved E71 into a pail of water.

Unsure how long did it remain there, but apparently, it seems to be drowned.

Nokia Repair Centre pronounced the handphone dead after “CPR”. *sigh*

Providing another hope, a hp repair shop at Toa Payoh offered to repair it at $120 if successful or $0 if otherwise. I suspect the guy will mix & match different spare parts together. Having nothing to lose, I decided to take a chance.

Result will be out later this week. Let’s see…

Meanwhile, I feel so INEFFICIENT with lost hp contacts and basic survival on a small-screen (4 words per line) phone, which I need to press “Down” several times to finish reading a SMS!

I am upset over this “misfortune”.

I did not lose just any handphone, but a CAPABLE ASSISTANT to get things done!

Liking it so much, I am thinking of spending $350 to buy the same model.
If not, $500 for E75 or $unknown for E72 (to be released by Aug/ Sep)

Whichever way, they burnt unnecessary “holes” in my pocket.

Ooo… I have faithfully tithed, completed BF and never for once, held $$ back. Why this unnecessary financial drain? I rather spend the money on a nice holiday or some helpful gestures than... *Haiz*

During one service a few weeks ago, Pst. Derek reminded us about how bad things can happen to good people too…

Let’s hope the dead handphone can be resurrected so that I can use it to “dong” (last) for a while before changing a new one!

It’s ok. Take it in my stride!

A milestone!

I finished 10km in 1hr & 30mins! :)

It's my 1st time taking part in such a run as similar events e.g. Standard Chartered Marathon usually fall on a Sun morning and they clashed with my svc timing.

As such, tis Adidas Sundown Marathon on a Sat eveng attracted me!

The race started with a bang!
Loud and happening music, together with the crowd's enthusiastic cheering really got the adrenaline pumping!!!

(All participants started with high morale!)

But after running for seeming a long distance, I past by a big signboard which shows "3km".

Huh.. Only 3km? My morale dipped. Nevertheless, I continued running.

At 6km, there was a drink station which supplies 100 Plus and Ice Mountain.
Thirsty, some runners stopped and drank a few cups...only to get "suaned" by the next sign "Run Better than You Drink!" That's quite funny...

Throughout the whole run, I just kept on running, kept on running.

Finally, IT IS FINISHED!!! A sense of achievement!

Probably, I shall try 21km next time or... even a marathon! 42.5km?
If yes, it's at least 6-7 hrs running on the road? Can you imagine? Wow...!!!
