A few moments ago, I was practising some songs and was led into worshipping . So with my guitar, I played several chords and prayed like I used to do.
Many times, we picture God as a potter and ourselves as clay to be mounded by His hands. But this time, I see God as a choral director who makes beautiful melodies out of our lives - yes - this time using a guitar. I was shown that the different strings that form the guitar are like the various areas of our lives. To produce a chord, the musician must strum across the strings. And unless these strings are fine-tuned, the chord will be audibly distorted. And it becomes a bad sound.
I sense that God is fine-tuning my life in a very special way.
BUT MY IDOL IS JESUS
David Cook won.
No, he's not a chef. Katong Laksa? NOOO!
For sometime, I've discovered a very interesting pattern about me watching American Idol. At the beginning of every season, I would be fervently catching every episode, enjoying the mass auditions, their funny antics and loving each moment Simon Cowell disses a terrible singer. And when the show finally reaches its semi finals, my interest would wane and simply die off. Then a couple of months later, I would stumble upon the American Idol website or the local newspaper (which I just did just 3 minutes ago) and find out who the winner is.
Yes. David Cook doesn't cook. Maybe he does when he is at home. But he sings. And he's crowned American Idol this season.
But more than just mere American Idol news I'm reporting here, I want to prepare you guys to know that I'm adopting a new hairstyle as seen by Danny Noriega. I would foresee some violent protest over my BIG
decision. Especially from the girlfriend. Ehhhh..
But respect me alright! Hah. The hair's to keep the warmth in winter Perth this July. Acts as an insulation.
Another game of soccer between SAJC AND ACJC. And Ping was dissing ACJC for being the winner for some reason not known to the world. Besides, SAJC is mostly recognized for their Rugby team anyway. Oh, but touch rugby will be the bomb soon cus the babe's inside. The ferocious one in disguise! RAWR!
Any place without noisy ang moi
kids running about is a good place.
Firstly, I wish to extend a happy and blessed birthday to Ping
This goes out specially to Ping for being a great buddy and partner in crime
. Very bad crimes we committed. So bad, we're after by the interpol. And my girlfriend nags at me sometimes.
So here're some photos taken on Sunday when we celebrated their birthdays at Dan's place. And Dan has a really nice living room by the way. Hah.
In the first photo, Ping and Cirst were holding their birthday cheese cake and made to take a photo together. I honestly think the picture looks hilarious. Heh. And kudos to the guys who took the effort to design and put up the decorations. Check out the balloons and posters in the backdrop.
And that was Ariel fixing a blister on her feet. She'll probably chop me if she finds me putting this up. Hah.
And a totally unglamorous shot of Kelvin caught on Louise's camera. I think I could still pass off as a 19 year old. Hah.
Another random shot caught on Louise's camera.
And here's my way of stopping a car. Ping's car to be specific.
And lugging the very sleepy girlfriend home. Very very sleepy.
A SUNNY THURSDAY
My afternoon was well spent watching a soccer game between SAJC
Guess who won? Go find out yourself! Hah.
Some exciting photos the girlfriend took.
And how can we forget our very own PING
AWAY FROM HOME
I hate to do this.
But guess what? School commences on the 4th August and orientation starts on the 28th. I'll probably be leaving on the 25th.
Guess what again?
I've 74 days left in Singapore. And I'll probably celebrate my own birthday in some remote vegetation thousand of miles away from home.
Sigh. I'll miss home.
Most importantly, I'll miss my babe.
MEET THE ONGS
I had a MEET THE PARENT(S) session today. But thankfully, it's singular cus the Papa bear wasn't around. So it helped shed some sweat off my forehead. Nevertheless, it was good. I behaved and acted like a fine young gentlemen. Imagine a handsome prince bestowed with the sword of destiny, mandated to save some random princess from a fiery castle.
OKAY, I'm dreaming. So what? Ha!
So I was at the dinning table with my babe and her mum exchanging a decent conversation. I have to admit that it was a little intimidating at first. But I'm glad that there was no awkward query like, "Are you still a virgin?". So between my sentences, I would consciously punctuate my words with a couple of quick quirks and then try hiding off my grin. For that helped break the ice and make talking less intense. But at least in my demeanor, I think I've overall depicted a certain sense of maturity. So way to go KEV! Hohoho!
(I'm mature anyway. At least I think I am.)
High contrast makes my teeth look really white! Sweeet!
And tell me what's your flavour! Cus I'll just eat everything up!
And my MacBook finally sold today for a pitiful amount!
Babe or tigress, you decide!
PLEASE BUY MY MACBOOK
I'm contemplating on buying a new notebook for school. And therefore, I've decided that if anyone should want to buy my existing Macbook for $1000, I'll gladly sell it off!
The specs of my white Macbook as follows:
- 13" Screen
- 1.83GHz Core Duo
- 60GB hard drive
- 2GB RAM
- Super Combo Drive
And it comes with the following
- Installation recovery CD
- Office Mac 2008
- iLife 08
I would rate the condition of my macbook an 8 out of 10 after some 18 months of use. I've never spent a single cent for repair/servicing since I use it mainly for music production so it stays at home most of the time. And having an Intel 6850 Core 2 Duo 3.0 Ghz PC at home which serves me pretty well and FAST
too, I hardly bother my Mac.
So if you're keen on getting an entry level Macbook, feel free to look me up!
The toy that I've been eyeing on is the 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook!
This will cost me slightly lesser than 2 thousand bucks. That means I'll have to top up a thousand bucks for it! If my job pays me $6 an hour, that means I'll have to invest 166 hours of my life to amass $1000! *faint
Alternatively, I'm also consider the Dell XPS which is another kickass machine! Since, I'm working for DELL, I could get it at staff price or something. Hah. But that will cost me also 166 hours of my precious life, which could be better invested into playing warcraft or spending time with my babe. HEH
The XPS is the premium series across all the DELL models. It is incredibly light-weight at 1.7kg and comes with a fingerprint detector and a wifi-catcher. Most importantly, its aesthetic features are as SEXY
as my girlfriend's. (Gee, I hope she doesn't read this.)
To end this entry, if you have a thousand dollars idling in your bank account and would love to own a macbook, call me!
Someone wants me to stage a concert in Brazil! What can I say? Heh.

I found this while clearing my messy and cluttered desk.
And those are lipstick marks or something. :)
WORD OF WISDOM
Okay, a word of advice for the guys.
If your girlfriend ever tells you to buy her a house
- for no particular reason.
Reply her something fatuous like, marry me first
That should fix her random-ness.
Tried and tested. Worked 100% for me.
HAPPY LABOUR DAY
While the world was enjoying labour day with their loved ones, I was actually LABOURING! Hah. But I'm not complaining really. Come to think about it, labouring can ironically addictive with the necessary conditions well placed. And in fact - correct me if I'm wrong - God wants us to labour!
Oh well. Whatever. Hah.
