Letter to SMCH

Hey all, just wanna share this since I'm gonna write it for my secondary school's yearbook. Hope it gets published LOL.



Juniors of SMCH,
Hello. I’m Ivan Chong, an alumnus of SMCH, class of 5 Science 2 year 2009. I hope to encourage you with this letter!
After the gruesome battle with the very much dreaded SPM, I decided to follow my brother’s footsteps- I took the SAM (South Australian Matriculation) course at Taylor’s College Subang Jaya in January. That was when I learnt SPM wasn’t that gruesome at all D: (No, I’m not saying you can take SPM easy. It’s just that in life, challenges get more and more difficult, right?)
So there I was, having one of the best times of my life at Subang Jaya. Church was awesome, college friends were great, then came the news of Matric. It was just another Friday, and I was out at Asia Café to ‘have tea’ (or ‘yamcha’ as we know it). All of a sudden my friend said “Hey, the Matric offer is out! We can check by SMS”. Then it struck me that I applied for Matric back in school. My my, I had forgotten the existence of this Matric program.
Without much hesitation and expectation, I typed in the necessary details and hit ‘send’. Then came an instant reply, “Congratulations, ... Negeri 9…” And I was like O_O “Er ok… So what should I do next?!” Of course, I called my dear parents.
“Wah you got Matric? YOU GOT MATRIC?” screamed my mum on the phone. “Praise the Lord!!! I’ve been praying for you to study your degree locally!” She was overjoyed, and so was my dad. Without much thinking, I just agreed to their will, and decided to accept the offer, since Matric is equivalent to STPM, but much easier and shorter in terms of duration. This also meant leaving my friends at Taylor’s College, which was the biggest factor holding me back.
And so, I packed my stuff and left Subang Jaya after my last week at college. And then came May 10th, the date of registration for Matric at Kolej Matrikulasi Negeri Sembilan, also known as KMNS, which was located at Kuala Pilah. The first week was disastrous. I barely knew anyone, except for some who were from SMCH (Cai Qian, who then left after getting JPA, Annie Tzyy Shan, and Tuan Sheng). The fear was intensified when everyone else seemed to be taking things well, heck, some even had more than ten ex-schoolmates, and some, ex-classmates along.
For me, Kuala Pilah was quite similar to Kota Bharu, in the sense of its lack of entertainment. What was worse is that it was a really really small and simple town, compared to Kota Bharu. But the great thing was that it is only 1 hour bus ride away from Seremban, which, was a great relief to all of us there.  We often went to Seremban for leisure during the weekends for breaks. IT’S GOT A BIG MALL WITH A CINEMA, AND GREENBOX (karaoke), AND BOWLING.. Isn’t that what life is all about, for us youngsters?
Let me give you a little introduction to the Matric life I experienced at KMNS. On weekdays (except Friday), we weren’t allowed to leave college grounds, also when the college had activities during the weekends, unless we had acceptable reasons. Needless to say, that was when the creative part of our minds went wild! On Fridays, we were allowed to go out at 2pm, for overnight stays or just for an outing. If we wanted to go out for an overnight stay, we had to be back on Sunday by 7pm. Family members were allowed to visit us from Friday-Sunday.
At college, there were two convenience stores, a cyber café, a photostate shop, a huge field for activities, courts for basketball, tennis, volleyball, futsal, badminton, squash, ping pong, etc. If anyone were to be sick, they could go to the government hospital for a free medical check-up. (Yes, FREE!) We didn’t have to pay a single cent for medicine. Outside of college was ‘Hong Kong Restaurant’, operated by a chef from Hong Kong. We looked forward to having lunch and dinner there every weekend (including Friday)! The chops were really good! Relativity played a big part there I guess.
As for academics, we had to attend lectures and tutorials. Lectures were composed of many tutorial groups, where the lecturers taught using LCD screens. Each tutorial had around 20 students, and each session was held in a classroom. Lecturers were able to spend more time with the smaller groups of students in tutorial groups, so QnA (question and answer) was carried out that during tutorial groups.
So what was the best part of Matric life? For me, it was the time I had with my friends. We had the chance to spend 24 hours a day together and crash each other’s room anytime we wanted to. We had our meals together all the time (the food wasn’t as awesome as home-cooked food, but as I know, what mattered was the joy of eating with friends!) Also, joining the activities of English Month was one of the highlights of my stay there. We joined various activities like Acapella Singing Competition, Battle of the Bands, Treasure Hunt and Spelling Bee. Do check them out if you enter KMNS!
One year passed us by really quickly. It was time to say goodbye, and nobody was truly happy to leave. Of course, some were happy that they could go back to their lifestyles which were full of entertainment, but most were sad to leave the companionship of their friends. Of course, this was a completely different feeling from when we just entered college. It took a few months for most of us to get used to. But then came the best part, when everyone went for trips to each other’s hometowns during the holidays. We would get free accommodation, and have fun all day long. It was just so much more fun since we um, had endured a year of ‘suffering’.
FYI, I’m entering USM Kubang Kerian, Kelantan for Medicine in September. Yes I know, back to Kelantan after being out there for 1 year and a half. Never have I thought I would come back to my hometown, but I can’t wait to enter Uni to start this new chapter of my life. Good thing is, there are some seniors from SMCH who are already there :) So.. I hope this encourages you! Do apply for the Matric course with the help of the school counselors.
Do contact me at ivanchong92@hotmail.com (e-mail or Facebook message) for further enquiries! May God bless you all.

On Entering University

Hehwo. So I'm just back from my trip to JB with my parents! Went to meet my bro, Joshua there :) Had lotsa fun, check out my photos here :)

Alright so I'm entering University on 6 September 2011. It'll be the first day of orientation, and I'm so glad my parents have agreed to accompany me there. Initially they were thinking of letting me go by myself -_- I was like, hey it's so near, accompany me lah since you're so proud & happy that I'm entering USMkk hmph.

I'm feeling kinda, excited?


But at the same time, I'm scared and maybe a little, paranoid? It's the kinda feeling where you don't know who to trust and mingle with. But then of course, like I've always thought, you gotta give it all, to get the best things in life. How do you know you can trust the others? You never know. You just gotta try.

The thing is, I don't know what to expect at Uni. Life there is gonna be so different, despite the fact that I've been living a stone's throw away from USM all these years. But then again, this is the fun part lah I guess. I hope there'll be lotsa activities!! Dad keeps saying I won't have time for other stuff but.. I don't care! I wanna join all of 'em singing/musical events :) I've got only 5 years for Uni, I'm gonna make it count!

Another thing is about the Internet there :( It's said that there's free WiFi there, but usually it's really really slow since so many people use it. Over these days during my holidays, I've been keeping in contact with y'all Taylor's friends on Whatsapp, and if that's taken away from me all of a sudden, I might need some time to get used to it :/ And Twitter & Facebook! Oh gosh.

During the JB trip I kept wondering how my life would be different if my parents chose to settle down in Penang, Ipoh or JB. (These are the more developed towns ma) And I could only come up with one consolation- my friends in Kelantan. Oh yes you're worth it. Of course then, everyone has a different path to walk in life, right? I'm thankful I've been raised this way lol. Love ma parents yo. 

Today I just wanna share this verse with y'all. 

NIV Genesis 50:20- You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Isn't it amazing how God works in our lives? He can turn the tables around. He promises us a good future if we choose to follow His ways. And I've always been wondering, how come I don't have those kinda serious breakthroughs some people have in life? Eg: fatal sickness, financial crisis, emotional breakdowns, which will lead me back to God, and I'll experience Him in wonderful ways. All I can say is, I wanna thank God for smooth sailing :) 

I is so very excites!!

Heroes Season 1

 Yo guys, so I've been watching Heroes lately. Just finished Season 1! And I must say it's quite interesting. Awesome lah actually. According to IMDb, it got 7.2/10. Check it out here.


Here's a pic:

I think the main reason I love this series so much is that it's.. about extraordinary abilities? OH HOW I WISH TO HAVE THEM 


But you & I know that's not possible 


Sigh, anyway! Yeah so this series is REALLY good I tell you. The plot, how events come after one another, how things are revealed and you go 'OOOOOOH SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED'. Well since I'm only done watching Season 1, let me give you a brief review :) (Yes, a brief one!)


First of all, what it's all about. The first season, known as "Genesis", begins as a seemingly ordinary group of people gradually becomes aware that they have special abilities. Events illustrate their reactions to these powers, and how the discovery affects their personal and professional lives. At the same time, several ordinary individuals are investigating the origins and extent of these abilities. Mohinder continues his late father's research into the biological source of the change, while Noah represents a secret organization known only as "The Company". While coping with these new abilities, each of the characters is drawn, willingly or unwillingly, into the Company's conspiracy to control superpowered people and into a race to stop an explosion from destroying New York City.

There, I copied it from Wikipedia. Season 1 is mainly about these people uniting to fight Sylar, an evil man, whose ability is stealing other people's abilities by killing them, and studying their brains. He apparently knows how people's brains 'tick', meaning he knows where to get the part of the brain where the special ability's information is stored! SCARY RIGHT O_O
Here's a pic teehee.


This is Claire Bennet, a cheerleader, whose superpower is 'rapid cellular regeneration', which is so awesome, Sylar tried to kill her (to acquire her ability in case you weren't paying attention hmph), but failed after Peter Petrelli stopped him! Hey who wouldn't want this ability? Imagine cutting your own toe off and your body grows a brand new one (She tried doing this in Season 2 O_O) You're just.. Unstoppable. Unless someone destroys your brain (that's my theory lah lol). So, basically she wants to save people since she can undergo any tough situations like fire explosion etc. And IMO her job is to avoid evil people like Sylar from stealing her ability for doing evil!

And yes I mentioned Peter Petrelli. Here's Peter and Sylar.


Well Peter is kinda like Sylar, not in the evil ways of course. Peter too, can have multiple abilities. But he doesn't have to kill them. When he's around this certain someone who has this certain ability, he acquires the ability. COOL RIGHT. So he got all of Sylar's abilities when he came into contact with Sylar LOLOL. 


In your face, Sylar! I'm so glad the creator of this show made Peter the good guy. He's a nurse btw. Then of course, it's just a movie.. So actually, Season 1 rotates around Sylar killing people, acquiring new abilities, and then the other people unite to pwn him and end all the evil once & for all. Oh not to forget one of my favourite heroes, Hiro Nakamura!


He bends time & space O_O This is the coolest of all abilities right?! No you're wrong. Peter has the coolest ability actually. Now if people knew about Peter's ability and just avoid coming into contact with him... AAAAAAAND HIRO IS JAPANESE. ASIAN. I ASIAN ALSO :D According to Wiki, he's actually a super intelligent person in real life. IQ 180 or something >_>


Also, here's Isaac Mendez, the painter who can paint the future! 


And when he paints the future, his eyes turn..

FOR I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I SHINE

Ok joking. One thing I don't understand is, does EVERYTHING he sees come to past? For example the bomb detonation. Does he see the future in the event of certain conditions, meaning if these certain conditions where to be altered, the future will be different? And with Hiro Nakamura (+ Peter Petrelli) who can travel back & forth in time, things are just.. bizarre. Which is why I want to understand time travel one day. Gotta read up on this yo!




And so Season 1 had a happy ending! Not so happy for some people, but it all came to love. "When it all ends, all that matters is love" someone said in Heroes. Aww right!


Here's a family photo!


So, what I've learnt from this movie is that.. 

1. Everyone is born with different talents. What counts isn't really what you have, but how you use your God-given talents. Similar in life, there's no use admiring/drooling over what others have. Find out what you're best at, and go that path. Everyone's special, everyone has their own journey to walk yo. And, everyone can make a difference in their own ways.

2. In the end, all that matters is love. Hey, 1 Corinthians 13:13 says "Three things will last forever- faith, hope and love- but the greatest of these is love." Which is so true right! We were born of love, the reason we live is because of God's love, and we should definitely die lovingly.

3. Trust your parents. It's clearly depicted in this series that Noah Bennet loves his daughter so much, he even wanted to erase her memory to protect her. Aww. Yes sometimes we think what our parents do is totally against what we want, but yes, they do know better sometimes. And they would always love us unconditionally, so don't break their hearts by challenging that fact, instead appreciate it and listen to what they have to say! :)

4. Family is of paramount importance. Nathan Petrelli left everything behind when he knew Peter, his brother was in the hospital. Aww. We should really learn from this. Money can come again, but family won't.

5. Family isn't defined by blood, but by love. This may be a little hard to accept, but yes, Claire Bennet's loved by her father dearly, and she loves him a lot too. As for parents raising up adopted children, if you ever worry that the child may not appreciate your love & effort to give them your best, stop worrying, and give them your all because one day, they'll come to understand. On the other hand if you don't do so, you'll never stand a chance of being loved back.


So that's pretty much what I love about Heroes! Hope you love the review :)

Friendship

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."

True, ain't it? :)

Some people say that friends made after high-school are.. closer than those made in high school. Well of course this issue is a different experience for different people. I say, make new ones, and keep the old.


I've been through so many 'goodbyes' that I think I've grown numb out of it. Yeah, high school came and passed.

And then Taylor's SAM- G8 class. Went there for 5 months, had one of the best times in my life, so far. And then went to Matrix for a year, and then goodbye.

So here I am now, at this point of life where I'm waiting for University to start. And I'm going to do Medicine! Oh I very excites teehee.

Have you ever thought, that life might be boring later on, say, when we're 30-50 years old? 'Cause as students, we undergo lots of changes, from different schools, courses, to friends. We gotta admit that change is what keeps our lives fresh, exciting. But then, I believe there's no such thing. More awesome things in life are to come yo. God has so much more in store for each and everyone of us :)

Ok back to friendship! So I went to KL for a week+ to meet my Taylor's buddies. We went to Malacca, which was awesome! (FOR PHOTOS CHECK OUT MY FB PAGE thanks!) We had so much fun that on the last day, each of us said 'goodbye' with heavy hearts..

And then we met up again at iCity at Shah Alam 3 days after that. And after that was the actual goodbye. Yes, goodbye. Farewell. But deep down in my heart, I know that I'm not afraid to say goodbye anymore, because I believe that one day, I'm gonna meet 'em friends again. I may not know the time, I may not know where. Of course the future is uncertain D: But still, I hold on to the belief that I'm gonna meet them, even if flying is what it takes :)
And, don't you think friendship is such a wonderful thing? Cheesy much! But if you've watched 'How I Met Your Mother', you'd just, smile at how people can be close-knitted, like family. And that's where trust comes in. In every relationship, there has to be mutual trust yeah. Of course, some people go through different kinds of bitch-dramas, eg. my friend stole my bf in high school blabla. But I say, every good relationship comes from a good start, where both parties give it all. Ok maybe not both at a time, but, no good relationship starts off with a party that's not willing to trust.

And I, for one, cannot understand divorce. Who would do that? The whole world -_-. Same goes to friendship, for me. I mean, what's the point of marrying if you're not ready to accept the flaws and problems in the future? Marrying means you take commitment, you love each other, you give it all, you forgive each other for every wrong, because your spouse is your special love.

Same goes to friendship for me. Cannot tolerate quarrels and all. I mean, come on. Instead of wasting your time bitching around gossiping, why don't we all build a friendly community of friends ^o^ Oh well. People are just.. people.

Ok anyway, point is, nobody knows whether this relationship will turn out good or not. You just gotta give it all. Don't let one act destroy your future relationships with other people. It's never worth it.




And I just wana thank God, that I've been so blessed by my friends. Whether they're from Kelantan, Taylor's, Matrix, church, they're all awesome people, and I'm so glad fate has made us meet, at the right time, at the right place :) I appreciate y'all very much yo!

And I've come out with a 'close friend' thing!

How do you know whether he/she is considered a close friend to you hm?
1. You love them enough to make sacrifices.
2. You don't have to hide anything from them.
3. You never feel awkward with them, even if there's a 1-minute silence.

It's a two-way thing!

God bless! :)

Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns

A song to help one go through the hard times :)



Please don't mind the vid, just listen to the song :)

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. 'Boy, you'll never win!'
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a Sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again "boy, you'll never win!
"You'll never win"

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

USM

Hey guys. So.. I got USM's offer :) It's as follows!

TAHNIAH! Anda berjaya mendapat tawaran di Universiti Sains Malaysia.  Maklumat  tawaran adalah seperti berikut :
Nama:IVAN CHONG SHYUE-JUIN
No Kad Pengenalan:-
Kod Program:SM00
Program:DOKTOR PERUBATAN
Yuran Pengajian:RM 1800 setahun
Tempoh Pengajian:5   TAHUN


Your first thought?
"Wah, congrats! RM1800/year only?!"
"Congrats!!! Medic offer!"

Well those were my first thoughts too, although I really hoped for "Dukacita dimaklumkan bahawa..."

Oh well. So have I accepted it or not? To cut the long story short, yes I did. I'm now officially taking USM's Medicine course in September :)


To cut the short story long, ...
To make things clear here, I shall explain how the public university application works in Malaysia. So all these while, all of the universities were under one application system, called the UPU (University Placement Unit). Here, you get to place 8 choices of your course + university. You only get ONE offer.

REALLY?

And then once upon a time, USM decided to compete against UM for the APEX (Accelerated Program for Excellence) status, and guess who won. Dang, USM did. And so since then, applications for USM were separated. USM decided to choose its students before any other universities do. And so, if you accept USM's offer, you won't get any other offers since you can only get one offer. However if you reject it, you will be taken into consideration of the other applications to non-USM universities.

It's a good thing if you're craving for USM.
It's a good thing if you totally hate USM, since so many others will be accepting it, and you have higher opportunities in the non-USM applications.
But it's a VERY bad thing if you don't want USM, but your parents really want it, and because of the in-my-opinion-very-stupid-you-only-get-one-offer system. Gosh I hate it.

So since I'd taken Matriculation at Kuala Pilah, Negeri 9, I'd been dreaming of being a Medicine student in UM. Ah, the KL life. And since KL is the centre of everything, life will be super awesome and interesting. Plus, I get to attend my beloved Harvest Generation church. Mm. And then I'll get to meet up with a lot of friends, since well, most of the universities my friends intend to go to are in KL.

But I couldn't help it too. Neither could my parents. My mum wanted me to enter USM really badly. It's her dream for me to be near home aww. So we agreed to pray really hard, for a confirmation from God, that if USM is really His will, His plan for me, then let there be no mistake, no cases like 'not all open doors are from God' and stuff like that. Of course, I prayed for rejection from USM (went for the interview and all), and acceptance from UM. I got USM's offer, and I was devastated.

I was angry. Why didn't God answer my prayers? Yes, I understood that whatever happened, I wanted God's plans for me, not my own plans. But why, why this time? Why USM? Dieee. And then funny ideas came to my mind.

If I could get USM, the APEX uni's offer, then I'm quite good, am I not? Then I should be able to get UM's medicine offer! Maybe God is trying to tell me I can get UM too! Why not?
Maybe I'll get both USM and UM's offer, God is allowing me to choose :D
Maybe, it's just a test of faith. UM UM UM!

And then my mum asked, "I thought we had an agreement?"

So I prayed for calmness, for peace of mind, 'cause I was asking, "God, if this is really Your will, why am I not happy at all?"

And then I felt so much better the second day. I began to think of what life would be like in USM. I'll be near home, everything can be so convenient, I can come home every week or whenever I feel like it.

So I thought of the pros and cons in my mind.

Pros of USM:
1. Apex status, quality-wise, it's really good!
2. It's super near home, <3
3. It's the only public university in Malaysia that uses the integrated syllabus for Medicine.
4. It offered me a medicine course already!

Cons of USM:
1. It's in Kelantan. Not so bad but, compared to KL, little entertainment.
2. No entertainment.
3. No entertainment.

Well.. Actually we had no entertainment in matrix college too. But it made us closer in a way. Real chat!


So.. I came back on Monday with Joshua to discuss this with my family. And the outcome? Yessss. It was for my own good. Nobody knows the chances of me getting UM's offer. So I gotta let go of UM, and start preparing for USM..

*update
Actually, I forgot to add-on something.. Before I clicked 'acecept', I went "Ok dad n yikor (bro), I'm accepting this, because first, USM has apex status and it has quality, secondly.. I LOVE MY FAMILY AND MY PARENTS! *click* 


HE*


For those who prayed, thank you so much! It's been really nice having your prayers :) And although the outcome isn't what I wanted, I believe God has greater, more amazing plans ahead for me. And quote from Candice, this journey, God's will, will definitely give me the utmost joy and satisfaction. As Zoe said, I may not see it now, but I will, soon :)

So, here I come USM, be ready, 'cause I'm gonna rock your world!

Popularity

Popularity. Fame. Everybody wants it, maybe not everybody. What does it mean to be popular?

Well, you get a lot of attention. So much so that one day, you start noticing that everything you do has certain intentions that aren't for yourself. You start doing things for others, to impress others, to make yourself look good, and someday you're in so deep you can't withdraw yourself.

And why isn't it good? Well.. 'Cause you lose yourself. Yes, you may get all the attention you want, but to the extent of losing your own purpose of doing things, of obtaining happiness by losing a lot, of sacrificing so much.

Luke 9:25
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?



Yeah that's it. Meaningful ain't it! Look at the world, there are people who are willing to do anything for fame. Maybe body? Selling your soul to the Devil? What's the point of getting all these materialized stuff, when you lose yourself, your being, your worth?

So guys, let's do ourselves a favour. Live life to the fullest, for God, for love, for ourselves, and the people worth living for.

Holidays!

Ooh, so long never update liao.

So.. I finished my Matrix course in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan! Well.. My experience? It was awesome. Here goes.

Well the first day was miserable. The moment my parents left and said goodbye, I felt like "Ohhh this is it. I'm gonna be here for a year". For the first few weeks, it was like.. hell? Ok I don't really know how hell is, it must be horrible, but then, this was really horrible la. I cried the first week, calling my parents and my brother. Everyday I look forward to the weekends. On Fridays I'll go out, and come back on Sunday. By 7pm. Curfew. Cute right. Sien.

So the first month passed by quickly, and I would always feel emo/sad/alone. It wasn't nice at all, but well, it was a good experience! I went out simultaneously for weeks, to Subang Jaya (to meet up with Harvest Generation friends and G8 friends from Taylor's) and Tangkak (to stay in my aunt's house). Well that helped a lot lah, something to ease the pain in Matrix college.

So, every weekday no one can go out. It's all in the college. Attending lectures, having meals, buying groceries, EVERYTHING. Well it was kinda like an ulu town inside lah. Got 2 koperasis (can compare prices around), got a CC, got a photostat shop, got a clinic that's never open.

And then everything got better soon! We attended church every Sunday, we had CF meeting every Thursday night, we either leave for the weekend or go to Seremban or KFC together for a meal during the weekend. Syok. And soon, everybody started bonding, got very close. You know la, in places like this where.. We're the minority, we would know almost everyone around. It was like.. In G8! Taylor's is big no doubt, but you get super close with your classmates in G8.

And then everything got super awesome. And then time flew, super quickly, and then 1 year passed us by! *poof*

And so, we talked about what we learnt in Matrix college, what we liked most about it..

What I learnt in Matrix college was that human strength is never enough to overcome trials and tribulations. And I really thank God that He led me through the year, being there for me when I faced some serious annoying problems. And I AM glad I actually took the offer to enter Matrix. It's one of the most right decisions I've made in my life. It felt right.

What I like most about Matrix college is none other than the free electricity and water! Nah, actually it was the life there. Yeah, people who've  never been there think it sucks, like it's prison, that anyone who went in wouldn't survive a month. Well we've proved them wrong, and it rocked. Imagine having to spend all your time either alone or with your friends. No family, not much responsibilities- not to say it's something very nice, but it was indeed a good experience lah.

And.. Now it's all gone! :D Well, USM's interview came right after we finished our Matrix course, and then I went to Kuching with the CF group, and then KL, Penang. This Friday I'm going to Penang again for a church camp! Harvest Generation Subang + City Harvest Penang. Pastor Kong Hee will be the speaker for the camp :) It's gonna be awesome! Expecting things from God this time, I want to be closer to God~ Not to say only a church camp can help me achieve this, but then, it's a time where I'm away from distractions, and I can focus well :) Please let it be awesome God!

And so that's a short update from me! Take care guys :)

Woohoo!

Yes I'm alive.
