Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”

Mark Twain

I am tired.

I don’t know why i am became so emo.

Too many conversations i’ve had over the weekend.

Can’t really decipher what its truly best for me.

Memories to me are not a good thing.

There is always so much going on.

Exam stress is building up.

Can’t seem to stay awake whenever i read finance.

Finance is definitely not my thing.

I think i am creative.

Creative enough.

I have alot of good ideas.

Some are brilliant.

Some are just plain lame.

10 months just go by like that.

Time never waited for me.

Dance was good.

I had so much fun leading this weekend.

Its not easy to do something if you werent passionate about it.

Of course, it must be something you are called to do.

Was thinking when to start up my own business.

I have a lot of things in mind.

Thinking about it, excites me.

I hope Liverpool beats man u tonight.

My emo-ness will only get worst if they don’t.

Life’s not always about getting what you want.

because life’s just that.

Don’t take life too seriously.

I shouldn’t be taking myself too seriously even.

I love dinner parties.

I love to dress up for random reasons.

I guess i am just a girl.

Nothing more,nothing less.

I think i have nice hair colour.

Pretty nails.

Love my height.

Relatively good skin.

I love weddings.

I particularly love weddings.

Especially when they have a theme colour.

I like magenta, purple and red.

I am a colour person.

I don’t like black.

I think i will have altogether 6 bridesmaid for my wedding.

I have awesome girl friends.

I made one upset.

and i havent been seeing the other two.

But blessed are the 3 that is with me at the moment.

I cherish them.

I am totally addicted to House.

I am fine with that.

I want to connect with more people.

Realised it takes more than just effort.

Timing is everything.

I love seeing couples holding hands.

I can see it when their love radiates through their action.

Its never easy to meet someone you truly love.

I’ve lost mine.

Its okay.

I finally understood that it is time.

Misguided.

Lost.

and

found.

Are you still reading this?

I feel like having snowflakes for dinner.

Had a heavy and satisfying lunch.

I also feel i’ve been pilling up on my weight.

I wish i could take up a dance class.

I need to be more efficient when it comes to my laundry.

Love the smell of my room.

Wish i am in aus sometimes.

Never too late to trust God again.

Love reading good books.

I just finished one.

Need to a get a suit.

So hard to get the perfect one.

Can’t wait for exams to be over.

Can’t wait for camps.

Can’t wait for my internship.

I am on facebook too much.

Its like I am logged on 24 hours.

Need to get a life.

Maybe i should stop now.

yes, i think i should.

I am glad.
I got so many things done this week.

I managed to finish all my assignments on time and pass them all up.

I managed to do my tutorial work abit and compile all my notes as i prepare for finals.

I managed to study alil for my last BCB test this monday.

I managed to have dinner with jovy and bee at Gardens.

I managed to catch up with my sleep.

I managed to cope with the songs for this week’s celebration.

I managed to change my toenail colour.

I managed to squeeze time for rachel and evelyn for a gurly shop date,

and i still managed to journal every single day.

But i havent gotten time to read any books =(

sigh, we often complain that 24 hours are simply not enough but actually, all we have is time. Its just how we manage them and set our priorities right. I am really tired, but ironically, i am too full of joy to just go to bed. So i thought i should spread some of my joy here before i do so.

So whoever is reading this, yes you, i wish you all the happiness you can get as you read my post. =)

*imagine jiunnli flashing you with her sweetest smile*

Really, happiness is all around you. Stop looking high and low for it. Its always there. You don’t even have to search hard but yes, it is there. It is when you least expect it, happiness comes rolling in. heehee! This gift comes mostly through people, anyone (even just seeing aunty irene from DUMC cafe gives me joy). I thank God for them =). Gosh, i can just go on, and on and on. . . . .

I can’t wait for my next suprise =)

Goodnight world!

Not complaining. . .

Its already 12 in the morning, and i havent really done any addition to the current assignment i am working on. This two weeks are going to be really hectic. With all the major assignments datelines on the same week and also been scheduled to serve for both the weekend and for Unity Celebration this coming Wednesday. Now, i am trying to get inspired to finish choreographing but these things dont just come like that. We need original choreo and new interpretations of the songs.

All in all, its not about performing, but to be able to stand on stage and  giving God your  everything. Something i’ve learnt from the past few months i’ve been serving, it is important to grasp the art of worshiping by relating to the congregation and God. With much focus and concentration, dancing really is an awesome method to worship.

I think our Langkawi trip has been confirmed. Rachel decided to come with me together with the rest of the gang to Langkawi this July. Yeah long way to go still but its okay to get alil excited about it right? We think its going to be  awesome! i just hope someone will go fishing with me =P. Gosh, have to start pumping money into my  ‘travel fund’. Haha, something eve came up with. Good thing i manage to avoid spending this afternoon.

I am actually looking forward to my finals this june.  Time passes by real quick. Now i am coming to the end of my 2nd semester. I will be done with assignments for this sem when i pass them up next week. I just have to shift my worries to my upcoming tests…eeeeee.

Can’t wait for my sister’s baby to arrive. We just got a shocking news that Jocyee’s baby is apparently…a boy! In week 24, the doctor still confidently tell her that its a girl mana tahu when she went to scan again, the baby decided to  ‘change sex’. My sister said its possible that initially the testis will not descent. When they do, it will be very obvious. So congratulations again to Anthony and Jocyee. You guys will have a swell time searching for new baby names =)

sigh, back to work.Some photos of what we did just now.

yeah, we were just about to have dinner =P

yeah, we were just about to have dinner =P

Dinner!

Dinner!

Don’t give up. The joy of the Lord is my strength. =)

see you, world!

. . .stressssss. . .

no more happy post until i hand in my assignments.

Just two more weeks of torture jiunnli, just two more weeks.

Important truth about communication; Meanings are in people, not in the words we use. I can say, “I love you” but do i really mean it?  How you perceive the meaning of those words are no within my control. As Combs and associates (1971) suggest, ” The discovery of meaning can only take place in people”.

Meanings are in people, not in their words nor action.

Profound. very profound.

No more books left in my uni’s library. Have to go raid Monash tomorrow.

” For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity but of power, love and self-discipline”- 2tim 1:6

pufff~

pufff~i accidentally deleted all half of the photos i've taken in syd =(

Spring-cleaned!~

Had a long day at Uni. Well not that long la. I spent my morning in the library looking for books hoping i could have a head-start of my first assigment due in aprill. Alil tired and i am tempted to take my afternoon nap but i had an appointment with Joshua. Need to catch up after 3-4 months being away!

I’ve changed my blog template suddenly because i feel i needed another ‘fresh’ start. Again, another decision has been made and this time, i’ve never been so proud of myself. Spring-cleaned my blog abit and tah-da. It is as if new and probably more organized and neater this time, well maybe not =)

I had awakened a new sense of freedom and in each passing day i knew where this gift comes from.

I will come back with photos the next round =)

hmmmm. . .

Fourth day of Chinese new year.

Haven’t been able to do much.

I’ve got no inspiration.

What is it?

Lying for the sake of love?

One mistake is all you need to screw up.

It’s easier done than said.

Things should be okay.

There must be more than this.

The world’s economy is getting worse.

I thank god for your new job

Truth isn’t scary anymore

Posted in Neither here nor there...... on January 16, 2009 by jiunnli

Ah I must say, its so good to be home. Everything looks even more familiar than before. Sydney is amazing but Malaysia is still home =). The flight back was amazing. I only slept for about 1hour throughout and the rest of it was spent reading, journalling and pondering. That 7 hours journey home was really the crescendo of my entire Aussie trip. It feels really good. I feel really light and free (plus the fact that I’ve lost so much weight and I was floating in the middle of the air). It was as if I was released from the many things that I thought was holding me back. Truth doesn’t seem so scary anymore. Truth looks good actually. Encouraging almost.

I need to do more for people. Especially for all my girlfriends who were with me through thick and thin. I need to start loving them more and being there for them instead of parasiting of their generosity.(Parasite: hangs around in hope for gain and advantage without benefiting them.) Gosh, that sounds bad =( 

I am going to unpack my luggage. Ah, so many things to do today.

I will start with my first scrapbook project as well and post up the photos. Maybe you guys can tell me what you think. So exciting =)

 

Home is where the heart is =)

Shucks, my next craving: Goreng pisang

 

A rough picture of my trip

I think that is all =)

Argh so tired but couldn’t sleep. The temperature never drops. Had my cold shower and felt so much better. Reading abit and listening to some music now. Another beautiful day was spent in the city. Met with Jen ric (Yes! He is actually in Sydney now), bought all my paper stuff ( and I just found out that there is such thing as Paper Couture. How elegant!), and had another round of Belgium (this time without the lychee beer). Really, my sister made sure I had the bestest time here before I leave and who knows when I am coming back to Sydney again =)

Would love to continue with chapter 4 but abit tired to summarize it. Will do it first thing in the morning, in the park.

Argh, I can’t believe I am leaving =(

Gonna miss going to the park and all.

Amusing, simply amusing.

I am losing my sanity, really i am…

Posted in Neither here nor there......, Random but yet significant on November 13, 2008 by jiunnli

Aargh, I need to focus!!~

I got 3 more weeks, in fact less than that, before I can actually go home. Finals coming soon (in less than 5days and I can still sit here, happily blogging away)  Hehe, probably because I am already making plans for my holidays. Cant wait!! =)…

Darn, really don’t feel like studying tonight……

I can’t wait for my next meal mann. Am really hungry now, but I am more sleepy than hungry. Went to the library early in the morning. I find it so hard to concentrate because it was blardy noisy. Jared called and he thought I was out somewhere eating or something. Yeap, it was THAT noisy!

Seen ms woo too. She is so kind and helpful during consultation. Now ‘budgeting’ seems so much easier! Phew…

Do not put your confidence and depend on the people around you, rather look to God for He is your one and only Helper. Again, somebody failed me. This time it was very much my fault and was triggered by me I have to say. Don’t know why the hurt is still there despite everything. I guess this is the time for me to learn of some of the deeper issues that are needed to be settled.

Celebrated Jessica’s birthday last tuesday. Ms BL was so generous and treated all of us. Really, she shouldn’t have. Played a game of Reversi with Jovy while waiting. Jovy is really cute. You know why? She was confused with the color of her tiles throughout the game but that did not stop her from winning!hehe..smart girl she is. =)

I really don’t feel like studying lor…

Love Simpsons. Trying to catch up with all the episodes during my studies in between. This is one way I keep my sanity.

Really feel like packing for my trip to Australia. Can’t wait to get away and meet my sister. I am only going to be there for a month anyway. Will be back in Jan. Hmm, everyone seems to be thinking that I am leaving for my studies in Australia..sorry if I have mislead you guys by any chance=P

Oh yeah thanks for the bible verse =)

“And now, dear brothers and sisters let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about the things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8. There were many times you’ve shared great and amazing things with me. Please don’t stop.

Mummy called and she said she might come to KL and accompany me while I take my exams. Woo hoo! That’s exactly what I need =(.

Anyone wanna go Boston? I wanna go to Boston. Boston is awesome during autumn and it gets worst when it snows.  =) 

Christy invited me to some new club opening in Starhill last friday. I was so looking forward to go as she is performing during the launch. Then, I decided not to, because I have my finals coming up and really, I din wan to ditch my books but it’s good that I take this time to catch up with her. I also need my break la. That Friday was bad. I had a long day studying, things happened, spoilt my mood and felt super de-motivated that I couldn’t continue reading, so I said, why not? Finally met one of her friend, Andy Kho who took this lovely photo of both of us. One of the best photo of us together=)

 

ish, why la why my eyes so small!~

My two-cents worth post

Posted in Family, My God, my all, Neither here nor there......, Random but yet significant on July 20, 2008 by jiunnli

 

The July morning sunlight sneaked into the tightly shut window by my bed and woke me up.

Its Sunday morning, my last day in Sitiawan.

I am always very dramatic. I wish I am not but I can’t help it.

I think overall girls love tragedy.

At least, I think most girls do.

 

Sang that song ‘Centre of my life’ again and couldn’t help but feel alil ashamed of myself.

So many things I’ve laid down before God but never felt satisfied or grateful.

Did I respond the way that is pleasing unto Him?

That I don’t know.

I want to find out.

 

I love people telling me stories.

All kind of stories

because I like to listen to them, probably that’s why.

My mum and Jared are these people.

In fact, Jared has told me many amazing and heartfelt stories.

My first story from him was the’ girl and the pearl necklace’

And of course I like people listening to all my crap as well.

It would be best, if they also display a great enthusiasm every time I talk.

 

Going back to college again.

First year is going to be tough and probably friend-less for the first 1 month.

Joanna is moving to Monash together with Joan Dee.

Jovy and Raf doing Uk programme.

Jin ho may not be around anymore.

Jeremy, jen ric, Jess, Jenn, Karming and myself are all doing Aus programme but different majors.

So tell me, what to look forward to?

Saw the sunset in Sunset Bistro (Penang) in of my friend’s blog.

Yes Joan Dee, it was beautiful.

Just the way you described it.

Jared said he will take me there when I come again.

 

Alil hungry now but I have to watch my weight.

No worries. I am not like those sorts of girls who will sell their soul for big boobs and good body.

I think I already have one, I think, except I need to tone it up abit. (Aaah perasan…)

Also, eating healthy is crucial.

That’s why I should stop thinking about mcDs.

They are the culprit in flabbyness.

 

Can’t wait for someone’s 27th birthday!

I want to make it really special for that someone,

Because he truly deserves it =)

I was telling eve the other night and got very excited.

She gave me lots of ideas and told me which website to go to for more ideas.

I have a few ideas in my notebook right now,

Some are really cheesy and lame though. hehe!

Can’t wait to see the look on his face that day =)

 

Brother is stopping by Msia for some meetings and conference.

Hope we’ll get to meet up before he leaves for his next stop, the Philipines.

 

James had a cook-out again last Friday.

Wanted to have some wine to accompany his food but I think I need to lay off the wine for a while.

After Benny’s wedding, every time I smell alcohol, I feel like puking.

Had too much the other night.

Btw, James, well done on the chicken though Joshua and I liked the bacon more.

Had so much fun watching our youth musicals…hehe…

We all looked so ridiculously young.

Enjoyed every moment in youth, musical and caroling.

 

I think it is going to rain again.

The sky is slowly filled with grey clouds.

I guess this is how I feel as well, literally.         

Aih, need to pack already.
