Nuffnang Movie Contest â€“ "The Princess and the Frog" Movie Tickets Giveaway!

Hmph... My 1st kiss was pretty memorable, cos it was with my 2nd girlfriend, back in my JC days. (To think about it, why I never kiss my 1st girlfriend? HAHA!) My 2nd girlfriend, call her J, is a very sweet and understanding girl, who will always place my interests above hers. The 1st kiss took place when we were just relaxing at one of the stone benches below her house; whereby I suddenly felt a sudden urge to want to kiss her. Luckily for me, she also felt the same urge, so the kiss was really mutual and nice. The communion of 2 lips, to me, is really a very sacred thing as it represents the seal of love shared between boyfriend and girlfriend. I would not say I am a very good kisser, but as time goes well, I think I can kiss pretty well. The 1st kiss started from just a lip-to-lip kiss, to a French kiss, so it was indeed a very memorable kiss I had with a girl. And to end off, I feel that kissing is a must-have when it comes to a relationship - instructorpotato (blushing)

I can't believe the last time I updated my blog was about 3 months ago, and by NOT updating, I feel that I have let Jasmine down and also the campers who read my blog dutifully. Just wanna share a bit of my current status now...
I can count myself pretty lucky as compared to my other uni friends as I managed to clinch a job right after I graduated. I'm working as a Business Consultant in Venture Platform; whereby I specialize in helping businesses to apply for government grants and even financing options. Initially, I had my doubts about this job as this industry is not one that I had planned to work in. However, this month being the 3rd month, and also the last month of my probation, I can slowly see results coming in... I feel that at the start of this job, I am like a farmer sowing my seeds to all the clients I meet. As we all know, it takes time and effort for the seeds to nurture and grow, which I'm experiencing now.
At this rate I'm going, I can achieve my birthday wish for 2010, which is to get a Toyota MRS.
ALEX! JIA YOU JIA YOU JIA YOU!!!

I know my friend is a Shopaholic because...
Posted on Wednesday, 18 March 2009
she simply LOVES shopping!!! Anyway, my friend is called Evelyn, and she is a HARDCORE Victoria Secrets fan and also a SUPERB SHOPAHOLIC! She did told me before that she can NEVER survive 1 day without shopping. Even she do not step out of her house, she will still do ONLINE SHOPPING. HAHA!!! As we all know, women are BORN to be SHOPAHOLICS, and at times, some may go to the extremes to just get their hands on something that they desire. However, I personally feel that women should know that the most important things in life do not always come with a price tag.

It's been almost 3 weeks since I last updated... Probably because I feel that not many people are visiting my blog already. Anyway, just wanna give an update to those who are daily avid readers of my blog.
I just finished my PSY333 mid-term exam today, which I felt that Granny Yeap was really gracious and nice to set a pretty straightforward exam for us, as I only screwed up 1 question out of the 9 questions exam. The next few weeks will be pretty hectic for me:
Really really looking forward to 20th Apr to come, which can be considered as my LAST OFFICIAL day of school; whereby I will be considered a graduate after 20th Apr. Trips in the pipeline are Hongkong/Taiwan grad trip with Debbie and Shirley, and also the family trip to Europe. Hope everything goes well and I can go on both trips before I officially step into the working world. =)

Life is like building a house
Posted on Wednesday, 4 February 2009
Life, for all of us, is but a journey of sorts.
We partake in this unpredictable yet compulsory adventure one step at a time, taking in whatever is dished out onto the platter of our experiences, and making the best of each and every moment.
As someone once said: "Live it once and live it best!"
The date of birth and the date of death on every tombstone merely speak of the length of life. Knowing how long a person lives is perhaps not as significant as the "dash" that unassumingly resides between the dates.
How much this little "dash" is worth depends on how we live our lives and how much good we choose to do for the people around us.
Mother Teresa once said: "The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow, do good anyway."
This speaks volumes of the selfless attitude which this humble saint exuded when ministering to the poor and needy along the streets of Calcutta.
Undeniably, some of us do good in the hope of praise and recognition. The affluent society we live in perpetuates this even more and taints the wholesome innocence that's at the very heart of selfless service.
Charles Michael Schwab, the American industrialist, lived by a business commandment: "In all things, do your best. The man who has done his best has done everything. The man who has done less than his best has done nothing."
You may not succeed every time you do your best, but no one can fault you if you've put your heart and soul into the task.
A story is told of an elderly builder who was ready to retire. His boss was sorry to see him go and asked him to build one more house as a favor to him. Although the builder said yes, his heart was not in his work and he turned in shoddy workmanship.
When he was done, his boss came and gave him the key to the front door, saying: "This is your house, my gift to you!"
If the builder had known he was building his own house, he would have given his very best. Just as you have to sleep in the bed you made, the builder had to live with the consequences of his poor effort.
Regret will not bring back the opportunity. You can only chalk it up as a lesson learnt, and not repeat it.
Life is very much like building a house. Every phase we live through is akin to a part of the construction. Delivering consistent good work ensures a well-built house that you can cherish forever.
If more of us can embrace Mother Teresa's adage, the world would be a better and happier place to live in. "Giving of your best" can be positively infectious. If you're already doing it, keep up the good work. If you're not - and only you would know it - today's not too bad a time to start. Good luck!
Just wanna share this article I read today on My Paper. =)

The storybook I would love to be trapped in
Posted on Monday, 12 January 2009
is the book called "Kiss Dating Goodbye", written by Joshua Harris. Just to give a brief description of the author, he lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He is a pastor at Covenant Life Church. He speaks nationally and leads an annual conference for college students called New Attitude.
The reason why I would love to be trapped in this book is because this book really gave me a new attitude towards romance and relationships. In the past, I had the perception that romantic relationships involve courting the girl of your dreams, impressing her with expensive gifts and nice cars, not forgetting the flowers and chocolates. However, even though I do succeed in melting the girl's heart and making her feel touched, the relationship will end due to differences or quarrels. More often than not, once I get together with the girl, I will discover that actually the girl is not really the girl of my dreams and not my future wife-to-be.
Although people may say this book only applies to Christians, I beg to differ as certain values highlighted in the book are also applicable to non-Christians. Some people regard the dating segment of a relationship as a game; whereby the lesser time a guy spends in winning the girl's heart, the larger the boost of ego for the guy. Some guys may even regard dating as a form of satisfying their physical needs, especially if the girl is more head-over-heels than the guy, the guy can simply toy with girl's feelings. The book really enlightened and reminded me that a girl's feelings, be it whether she is a Christian or not, is very fragile and needs to be treated with tender care. A girl's feelings should not be treated lightly and should be respected and regarded positively. By doing so, a girl will feel that she is not treated unfairly due to her gender and also be able to differentiate which guy is the RIGHT one for her.
After reading the book, it really enlightened me a lot with regards to the right attitude I should have towards romantic relationships, and not dunk myself into a relationship without taking into account several factors that were highlighted in the book. Therefore, I would really urge those who experienced relationship problems before or currently to go get the book and rest assured, you will be enlightened and develop a new perspective towards romantic relationships, regardless of whether you are a Christian or not. Often not, people dream themselves to be in fairyland, having whirlwind romances and meeting their Prince Charming or Princess. However, we must be realistic and not day-dream, but make sure one has the right perspective towards dating; and through the grace of God, one will meet the RIGHT one.
Thus, I would like to end this post with 2 very interesting yet mindful questions that were mentioned by the author:
What is your motivation in a relationship - pleasing yourself or serving the other person?
Do you give yourself away physically or emotionally in ways you regret later?

In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room. There were no distinguishing features save for the one wall covered with small index-card files. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these files, which stretched from floor to ceiling and seemingly endlessly in either direction, had very different headings. As I drew near the wall of files, the first to catch my attention was one that read "Girls I Have Liked". I opened it and began flipping through the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was. This lifeless room with its small files was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the actions of my every moment, big and small, in a detail my memory couldn't match. A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I began randomly opening files and exploring their contents. Some brought joy and sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I would look over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching. A file named "Friends" was next to one marked "Friends I Have Betrayed". The titles ranged from the mundane to the outright weird: "Books I Have Read", Lies I Have Told", "Comfort I Have Given", "Jokes I Have Laughed At". Some were almost hilarious in their exactness. "Things I Have Yelled At My Brothers". Others I couldn't laugh at: "Things I Have Done In Anger", "Things I Have Muttered Under My Breadth At My Parents". I never ceased to be surprised by the contents. Often there were many more cards than I expected. Sometimes there were fewer than I hoped. I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the life I had lived. Could it be possible that I had the time in my twenty years to write each of these thousands, possibly millions, of cards? But each card confirmed this truth. Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature. When I pulled out the file marked "Songs I Have Listened To", I realized the files grew to contain their contents. The cards were packed tightly, and yet after two or three yards, I hadn't found the end of the file. I shut it, shamed, not so much by the quality of music, but more by the vast amount of time I knew that file represented. When I came to a file marked "Lustful Thoughts", I felt a chill run through my body. I pulled the file out only an inch, not willing to test its size, and drew out a card. I shuddered at its detailed contents. I felt sick to think that such a moment had been recorded. Suddenly I felt an almost animal rage. One thought dominated my mind: "No one must ever see these cards! No one must ever see this room! I have to destroy them!" In an insane frenzy I yanked the file out. Its size didn't matter now. I had to empty it and burn the cards. But as I took the file at one end and began pounding it on the floor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to find it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it. Defeated and utterly helpless, I returned the file to its slot. Leaning my forehead against the wall, I let out a long, self-pitying sigh. And then I saw it. The title bore "People I Have Shared The Gospel With". The handle was brighter than those around it, newer, almost unused. I pulled on its handle and a small box not more than three inches long fell into my hands. I could count the cards it contained on one hand. And then the tears came. I began to weep. Sobs so deep that the hurt started in my stomach and shook through me. I fell on my knees and cried. I cried out of shame, from the overwhelming shame of it all. The rows of file shelves swirled in my tear-filled eyes. No one must ever, ever know of this room. I must lock it up and hide the key. But then as I pushed away the tears, I saw Him. No, please, not Him. Not here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I watched helplessly as He began to open the files and read the cards. I couldn't bear to watch His response. And in the moments I could bring myself to look at His face, I saw a sorrow deeper than my own. He seemed to intuitively go to the worst boxes. Why did He have to read every one? Finally He turned and looked at me from across the room. He looked at me with pity in His eyes. But this was a pity that didn't anger me. I dropped my head, covered my face with my hands, and began to cry again. He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things. But He didn't say a word. He just cried with me. Then He got up and walked back to the wall of files. Starting at one end of the room, He took out a file and, one by one, began to sign His name over mine on each card. "No!" I shouted, rushing to Him. All I could find to say "No, no", as I pulled the card from Him. His name shouldn't be on these cards. But there it was, written in red so rich, so dark, so alive. The name of Jesus covered mine. It was written with His blood. He gently took the card back. He smiled a sad smile and continued to sign the cards. I don't think I'll ever understand how He did it so quickly, but the next instant it seemed I heard him close the last file and walk back to my side. He placed His hand on my shoulder and said, "It is finished." I stood up and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written. Just wanna share this story with you all... =)

vPOST Nuffnang Christmas Party Rocks!
As you all can see from the photos above, I went for vPOST-Nuffnang Christmas Party on 20th Dec'08, held at DXO. It was a pretty cool event as it was the VERY FIRST ALL BLOGGER Christmas Party held in Singapore, so I'm really proud to be part of it. Anyway, it was free entry through invite-only and each of us have 2 free drinks each. Therefore, free entry and free drinks are indeed signs of appreciation for the bloggers, which I personally think it is very nice and thoughtful~
Before talking about what I dressed as, the letter allocated to me is V. Florence and I really racked our brains out on what to dress as; whereby in the end, we decided to dress as Vets. I wanted to dress as Vegetable, but I think I will look like a cuckoo! HAHA! Florence and I went to buy the doctor kit toy for kids, so as to accessorize ourselves. I really want to thank Florence for being nice and accommodating to me, and willing to dress up and go with me for the party.
Upon reaching DXO (the venue sponsor), Florence and I got to take a photo in front of the nice vPOST-Nuffnang background; whereby we are given each a set of photos printed on stamps by MyStamp, which is REALLY NICE as we can keep it as a memento of the party. While scouting for a table inside, I saw MANY DIFFERENT kinds of people in the club. The more prominent ones are Santarinas, Paranoid, Van Helsing, Virgin Bride, Samurai, Sushi Master, Stewardess, Student, The Best Yoga Teacher, Princess and many more! It was a really an eye-opener for me as it was my FIRST time going for a costume party.
Imagine free entry and free drinks seem to be too good to be true right? Imagine having a 10-course buffet dinner too! I think Nuffnang really rocks my socks off man! I thought the party would just have 1/2 free drinks, and that's all, but I really did not imagine that I will get to eat buffet too! At the end of the party, each of us got a goodie bag, which comprises of ... (refer to the 2nd photo). To sum it all up, this is a party that I never regret going, although initially I did ponder to not go as I was lazy to dress up. I wanna thank Nuffnang and vPOST for organizing this party, and hope that there are more to come! =)))

Shepherding with JunYao
Posted on Wednesday, 17 December 2008
As you can see from the movie poster above, I went to watch this movie with my shepherd, JunYao. As the tickets were selling fast, we only managed to get single seats; whereby I'm sitting in front, while JunYao is behind me. Although it feels kind of weird sitting apart, we still enjoyed the movie. Personally, I would give it a 4/5. The love story is nice, packed with a bit of vampire action, which was good.
Anyway, I have decided to serve for HOPE Kids ministry already. I believe that it is a calling from God, to use my flair in dealing with kids, to be sowed upon the HOPE kids. I personally believe that the young kids are our future leaders; whereby if we cultivate them well when they are young, they will grow up to be great leaders and be able to be spread the word of God to their peers, and do God-like things.
Tomorrow will be a KTV session with the CG! Although there are only about 1/3 of the people coming, I bet it will be FUN! =)))
