Photos and Words: Sabah.

heheh. here's some highlights of our mission trip to a village in Sabah. originally planning to upload more pics and describe the whole trip in detail, sort of like a diary...  but uh.. blogger acting up, connectivity sucks, im running outta time, etc etc. enough of my lame excuses. just enjoy these few precious pics yea? :)

this sweet girl performing their traditional dance in the first night. 

second day. QPR! the boy we call QPR because of his Airasia X Queens Park Rangers jersey. anyway, ignore the orange nail polish. he's really cute! actually, that's not the reason i like him so much. its more of his dedication to detail and quiet attentiveness. 

Gabriel with his glitter mask! he dumps those pink glitter on for 'maximum effect". reminds me of the recent glitter trend hahah. i would totally wear his mask. if its wasn't too small for me. 

Sabah Next Top Models. the kid in the red shirt. poser maxxx. love their masks too!



:)
LOVEEE this pic! sunday school venue was a simple wooden hut. and she was clambering on the.... doorway. managed to capture this moment yesssh.


tiger boy and his mask. 


trying to capture the glitter bokeh. their creativity is amazing. by our estimation, there's around 66 kids in the small room that Sunday morning. so glad that we managed to have enough supplies for them. 

two incredibly adorrrable siblings. they have identical rounds faces, happy eyes, and toothy smiles.
in this pic, they kept saying "meninggikan... meninggikan...", then standing on tiptoe at the camera. CUTEEEE
gorgeous views. 
QPR got very dissatisfied with his original mask and made another one. i like the patrick pink fluff. :D

kl helping a kid with his mask. more like kacau-ing. 

woot woot.
anyway. no idea how this pic got uploaded here. this is the toilet that we used. 5 stars by usual kampung standards!! :D

one of the many small soft toys we gave out to the kids. i'm making a wild guess that his name is Igor. this is the parrot in Aladdin right?? hahahah. shall google it after i publish this blog post. wish me luck!


*update: It's iago* =.=

anyway. there were loads other cute toys! elmo, cookie monster, an assortment of weird sesame street characters, disney characters, squishy footballs... they're those happy meal toys that look quite new. I WANT SOME. result of a mcdonald's-deprived childhood. :(

snuck a picture of the fames grace koh. she says she looks fat here. WHERE GOT. at least you're in focus! 
JUST LOOK AT THIS PLACE. this was taken by shing yi. we stopped by random roadsides. point and shoot, you can take lots of postcard-worthy pictures. Sabah oh Sabah. You're too pretty for words.

Anyway, it was a really lovely trip. The fresh air, the people, the weather, the timezone, the food........ had a very relaxing time. Will write more about this next time! :D



hmm hmmm hmm. it's been ages since i blogged right? had been very busy with final year project, trips, camps, and basically making the most of my limited time at INTI before i leave. the time is better spent with people and at places rather than facing the laptop and blogging. HAHAHAH. I find it quite weird when people ask me what am i doing at camp or whatever when i clearly know i have final year project due very very soon.

somehow i'm not freaked out.

yay. just completed it and will be ready for submission tomorrow.

wish me luck!

and thank God for being there for me through all this.

so much happened. so much to share. hopefully i'll have the time lah. there're plenty of stuff queued up. and finals are coming next week! WOOTS.


to end this on an informational note,

do watch THIS VIDEO. if you have the time. it addresses some of my thoughts and worries. and partly related to my FYP too. tenkew sandra for showing me this! :)

and secondly, it's never too late to go book shopping. HEH HEH HEH. see you there!



So long, farewell,
Auf wiedersehen, goodnight!

exfoliation.

anyway. here's something. it's long and might be too wordy, but do read through it and give some thought to it. yeah? 

人與神的一段有趣的對答:


神問道:你想採訪我嗎?


我說:我很想採訪你,但不知道你是否有時間。




神笑道:
我的時間是永恆的。你有什麼問題嗎?





我說:你感到人類最奇怪的是什麼?



神答道:

他們厭倦童年生活,急於長大,而後又渴望返老還童。



他們犧牲自己的健康來換取金錢,然後又犧牲金錢來恢復健康。



他們對未來充滿憂慮,但卻忘記現在;



於是,他們既不生活於現在之中,又不生活於未來之中。



他們活著的時候好像永不會死去,但死去以後又好像從未活過。


我又問道:作為天父,你有什麼經驗想要告訴子女的?



神笑道:

他們應該知道不可能取悅於所有人。
他們所能做到的只是讓自己被人所愛。



他們應該知道,一生中最有價值的不是擁有什麼東西,而是擁有什麼人。



他們應該知道,與他人比較是不好的。



他們應該知道,富有的人並不擁有最多,而是需要最少。



他們應該知道,要在所愛的人身上造成深度創傷只要幾秒鐘,但是治療創傷則要花上幾年時間。



他們應該學會寬恕別人。他們應該知道,這世上其實有很多人深深的愛著他們,但卻不知道如何表達自己的愛。



他們應該知道金錢可以買到任何東西,卻買不到幸福。



他們應該知道,得到別人的寬恕是不夠的,他們也應當寬恕自己。







其實這些問題的答案都在聖經,但人卻花費一生橫衝直撞,卻不願意一天花費半小時在聖經中找到人生的答案



isn't it always like that? humans are short sighted and sad creatures. without God, we are nothing.
