Just life

Recently i’ve began reading the book called You the Leader by Pst Phil.
It’s one of the required books of SOT and after I finish this one I still have 7 more to go..
I have no idea why but being the speed reader that I am, I’m taking a tad too long for this book..
But I guess it’s good cause I’m really savoring each and every word that is written in that book.
I’ve learnt several things from that book that have really impacted me greatly
I’ve learnt that I can’t let my emotions rule me, to love ppl, to be wise, courageous and strong, listen more to ppl,to never give up, have integrity and trustworthiness:)
Yup!
I’m gonna do my best to achieve all these and more!
So guys please help me!:) and be patient and understanding with me!:)
請多多指教!*bow!*

Haha me and my missing Taiwan.
My cousin’s there now with her friend and she’s only 16..
The same age when I made my maiden voyage there..
I miss Taiwan so much!
It’s like some of the stuff on my bucket list includes watching the sunrise on ah Li shan with my future boyf or husband, go whale watching off Hua Lian and climbing 玉山。
Haha:p
Ok I need to stop else I’ll keep going on and on.

Anyway I’m on the train now to cityhall to collect my album..
So cute,
Two old men giving up the seat to one another.
I really think that our society has come a long way in graciousness and well, we can help Singapore improve by being gracious!
I believe in the power of one:)
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Went jogging this morning and it really felt good to sweat!
Thanks for motivating me!

Here’s wishing all of you ppl who actually read my blog a good day ahead and that you’ll see the silver lining in every storm cloud:)
We can do it!:)

Ok I’m reaching cityhall now….adios!

love,
jane

MUGGING TIME!

Never alone

Never Alone – Lady Antebellum

May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it’s time to go home
May you always have plenty
Your glass never empty
Know in your belly
You’re never alone

May your tears come from laughing
You find friends worth having
With every year passing
They mean more than gold
May you win but stay humble
Smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble
You’re never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I’ll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn’t goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone

Well, I have to be honest
As much as I want it
I’m not gonna promise the cold winds won’t blow
So when hard times have found you
And your fear surround you
Wrap my love around you
You’re never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I’ll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn’t goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone

May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it’s time to go home
And when hard times have found you
And your fear surround you
Wrap my love around you
You’re never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I’ll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn’t goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone

i really love this song..
when i was feeling my most down, I found this song and listened to it knowing that it was God telling me that I’m never alone.
I would really like to thank my friends for comforting me these past few days..
you guys know who you are!:)
YES LISA CHU! YOU INCLUDED! and thanks boss and the people who had ice-cream:)
Thank you PB, Jon, Jed, Serene.
Thank you for not judging me for what happened the other day..

I would just like to say that I love you guys a whole lot:)
and I know that I have a lot to change after much self-reflection and I will:)

and thank you thank you Daddy God for never giving up on me, even when I was feeling like I wanted to give up on myself:)

and I’ll just like to say that for the people who feedbacked to somebody that they felt I was unapproachable… I’m sorry.
I’m not usually like that.
and I just wanna say that rather than feedbacking to somebody, maybe you’d like to be the one who steps up to talk to me first to find out how I really am?
and not judge me just like that when I so happened to be having a really bad day.
It’s not fair to me like that and it kinda equates to talking behind my back.

so anyway, hf prayed for me ystd and told me that she knew God would have a word for me in the bible and so i flipped the bible randomly to a page and out came this verse.

Job 23:10
But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.

and i really felt very comforted.
I SHALL CONQUER!!!

so anyway, back to mugging!:D

love,
jane

I think friend’s suffer the most when people get into relationships…don’t you agree?
Haha.
For me, it has been tried and tested many times..
Or maybe just maybe, I’m not important enough..
But I shall believe that I’m important to others. I shall…

Love,
Jane

Valentine’s Day

Haha alright alright I know that V Day has been two days gone but I was busy alright?:p

I just had a few thoughts about this day that i wanted to pen down.

So how did this day come about?

The Early Medieval acta of either Saint Valentine were expounded briefly in Legenda Aurea. According to that version, St Valentine was persecuted as a Christian and interrogated by Roman Emperor Claudius II in person. Claudius was impressed by Valentine and had a discussion with him, attempting to get him to convert to Roman paganism in order to save his life. Valentine refused and tried to convert Claudius to Christianity instead. Because of this, he was executed. Before his execution, he is reported to have performed a miracle by healing the blind daughter of his jailer.

Since Legenda Aurea still provided no connections whatsoever with sentimental love, appropriate lore has been embroidered in modern times to portray Valentine as a priest who refused an unattested law attributed to Roman Emperor Claudius II, allegedly ordering that young men remain single. The Emperor supposedly did this to grow his army, believing that married men did not make for good soldiers. The priest Valentine, however, secretly performed marriage ceremonies for young men. When Claudius found out about this, he had Valentine arrested and thrown in jail.

There is an additional modern embellishment to The Golden Legend, provided by American Greetings to History.com, and widely repeated despite having no historical basis whatsoever. On the evening before Valentine was to be executed, he would have written the first “valentine” card himself, addressed to a young girl variously identified as his beloved,as the jailer’s daughter whom he had befriended and healed, or both. It was a note that read “From your Valentine.”

Interestingly enough, it is mentioned that there is no historical basis… and that valentine’s day was actually commemorated by the Romans to remember three Christian martyrs all of whom were named Valentine and there was no romance linked to it at all.
So there you have it,
Valentine’s Day is really just a money-making venture for companies.. but I guess it also goes to the human need for love.

I guess you could say that I’m just sore cause I havent had a valentine ever since the beginning of my existence but honestly, if you really find someone you really really love, isnt every day like and supposed to be like valentine’s day? 🙂 Haha.
I think it’ll be quite sad if your relationship was only special on valentine’s day but I guess, who am I to comment? :p

in other news,
RECESS WEEK is coming up next week!!!! omg stress:/ SIGH.
I WILL BE ABLE TO CONQUER MY CA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and just to be random,
who wants to go to the zoo with me during one of the days of recess week? 🙂

love,
jane

突然好想你

havent blogged in a while cause i’ve been so caught up with doing so many things…
and the things are still piling up.
but i know God is good and that He will enlarge my capacity and give me the strength to carry on.
I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!

missed choir auditions this week cause i just so happened to have food poisoning on that day.
but I still thank the Lord that I recovered by the next day and I know and I know that through this i’m just gonna grow stronger, get stronger and I DEFINITELY WILL GET INTO THE CHOIR MINISTRY AND DO GREAT THINGS FOR GOD!
I confess that!

Now of days I realised that I rely on God more and everytime I blog I talk about my faith.
I guess that’s good cause i’m drawing closer to Him 🙂
really can’t be bothered bout what people think cause if I live by how others judge me that’ll honestly be a sad existence.

I’m kinda in a reflective mood today cause I just heard this song on radio called 突然好想你 by 五月天..
it made me tear cause I realised how much I miss the people whom I don’t have by my side anymore..
Jiayi, CBD, Zoe, Lammy, Mae, Heidy, AChoo, the rest of the scones… Linn, Ning, Mei Lian..
I can keep deluding myself that I’m immune to all of the sadness of people leaving and weakening friendships but honestly I think God chuckles everytime I say that because that is the exact opposite of the truth..
I steel myself against the pain but i still hurt.. and it’s unearthed at certain times..
I know that it’s impossible to keep close relationships with everyone especially since time is needed for the maintenance of good friendships and there are so many friends but deep down, I always wish to keep each and every single friendship..
I dunno if Heidy or AChoo or Jiayi or Marcus or Zoe reads this but I really really sorry that I’ve not really kept up the conversation with you guys…
I’m sorry i really am..
especially to Heidy..
I know that you’re back in Singapore and I miss you loads but I still havent found the time to meet up with you before you fly off..
I’m sorry..

I need to do better!

so here’s leaving you guys with this song while I go back to my econs tutorial…

最怕空氣突然安靜 最怕朋友突然的關心
最怕回憶 突然翻滾絞痛著不平息 最怕突然 聽到你的消息
想念如果會有聲音 不願那是悲傷的哭泣
事到如今 終於讓自己屬於我自己 只剩眼淚 還騙不過自己

突然好想你 你會在哪裡 過得快樂或委屈
突然好想你 突然鋒利的回憶 突然模糊的眼睛

我們像一首最美麗的歌曲 變成兩部悲傷的電影
為什麼你 帶我走過最難忘的旅行 然後留下 最痛的紀念品

我們 那麼甜那麼美那麼相信 那麼瘋那麼熱烈的曾經
為何我們還是要奔向各自的幸福和遺憾中老去

突然好想你 你會在哪裡 過得快樂或委屈
突然好想你 突然鋒利的回憶 突然模糊的眼睛

最怕空氣突然安靜 最怕朋友突然的關心
最怕回憶 突然翻滾絞痛著不平息 最怕突然 聽到你的消息

最怕此生 已經決心自己過沒有你 卻又突然 聽到你的消息

love,
jane
