here fishie

I was talking to my friend Katy today after church and we were discussing "Funny Fish Stories (FFS)". When i was little, my dad got us a couple of gold fish i think and we had a new house maid at that time. My mum asked her to change the water in the tank and after a while the girl came and told my mum how the fishes had died and when my mum asked what she did, she said, "nothing, i removed the old water and put clean boiling water". Well, yes, i think the fishes kind of "boiled" to death. :D
But this one is the funniest. For halloween my church in Glasgow had a "fancy dress fayre" for kids and we had games and other fun stuff. The stall i was in charge of was a fishing one where kids put their fishing rods behind a screen and we would hook on a piece of candy and if the kids were really lucky, we would hook on a polyethne bag of a real live goldfish. Well, so one of the little girls got one and apparently since she probably got bored of holding it the whole time, she put it on the heater/radiator and (i'm actually laughing at the moment) after a while they found the fish in the bag dead (duh!) and the skin had kind of boiled/cooked off the body and was floating on the top. Probably sounds mean on text but when Katy was telling me this i was laughing so hard.
Who else has a FFS?

Last christmas

Last Christmas, I didn't celebrate Christmas. A lot of people may not know about it but some did. I had a lot of reason. Some very extreme and some simple silly ones. This year I learned to find a balance and I’m enjoying my mince pies and hark the heralds and the lights.

But before we get into the festive spirit, let us take some time to reflect about why we celebrate the birth of this great great Man. This Man whose birth split time, before Him and after Him. But why did He come to this earth? Well let's take a look at some of the scriptures from the Old Testament...

"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Isaiah 7:14

" For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder (as the place of burdens): and His name (Shem) shall be called (acclaimed-celebrated) Wonderful (Pele-Incomprehensible, Wonderful) Counselor (Ya’ats-Transformer or Counselor), Mighty God (El Gibor-Mighty God or Chief God-Man), Everlasting Father (Av Eternal), Prince of Peace (Sar Shalom)."Isaiah 9:

"But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed." Isaiah 53.5

And what it says in the New Testament

"Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." Matthew 1:22.23

"For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost" Mathew 18.11

While this may not be exactly when Jesus was born and may be way too commercial and the silly Santa Claus comes and spoils a few things (I’m not a big fan of the Santa man), let us rejoice and be glad and know that Messiah Jesus did come to this fallen World, and while we were still sinners loved us and was willing to die for us.

I feel like it's been ever since i last "blogged". I am far far away from home, doing my post grad studies in the U.K. It's a good experience and lots of work but i'm managing pretty well. God has been faithful. I hope to start "blogging" more regularly.

dead and healthy

I was reading this article the other day which was about how to tell if a fish is fresh or not. One of the points was, " If you touch it and the skin does not get dimpled, then you know it is in it's pink of health". Ok, How can something that is quite clearly dead be in it's "pink of health"???

c'est la vie

It's quite strange that when my parents get a call or a text i ask them who it was but when they do the same i give my big speech about how i never have any privacy.

There's this very irritating bird that sits near my window and goes "tootoo....tweeeeetttweeettt...tootootweeeeeetttweeeett.." over and over. It's so annoying. I wish I could shoot its head off.

letting go

It's so hard to let go of the past especially when you know it's better to let go. I keep thinking small emotional things of the past are insignificant now and that i do not have any use for them but still when the time comes to leave, i hold on. I find it easier, more comforting. Yet in strange ways it is not comforting. It makes me sad, makes me regret what could have been. I don't dwell on the past but i just find it hard to let go.

praying for you.

I heard this song called praying for you by Lecrae today and i love it! Makes so much sense. Since i can't think of anything creative to write, here are the lyrics :)

Father God, I'm prayin' to you for somebody, who knows you Lord but just hasn't, hasn't been seein' you in the right view lately, Hear me out...
Father, I'm prayin' for a friend he and I are pretty close, and out of all my friends for this one I'm concerned the most. He say he readin' daily but he ain't really learnin'. He been in church but say that he ain't moved by any sermon. His face weak, he ain't prayed in a week, he wake up and just weep with his face in the sink Lord, you gotta help my man, I'm prayin' for him daily, he ain't sinned but it just seem as if he goin' crazy. He say he feelin' trapped, can't even head up the mall coz every lady's half-dressed temptin' him to lust and fall. He keep the TV off, videos just make him feel that he ain't really nothin' without money, girls and shiny wheels. The other day he told me that he felt less a man coz he ain't have a five-year plan or a piece of land and man it's crazy coz his family think so much of him, plus he got a godly wife who always showin' love for him but he's strugglin', even though he talk to me, I tell him what to do but he don't listen when he oughta' be. I'm scared for him coz there's people that look up to him, he got some younger siblings who been changed by what he's done for them but is it done for him, Lord don't let it be, if he don't wanna talk to you then Father hear from me, is it done for him, Lord don't let it be, if he don't wanna talk to you then Father hear from me...

Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, I'm prayin' for you Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, yeah, I'm prayin' for you...

God, his condition is worsen since we were last conversed and I'm with him now and he ain't doin' well and this I'm certain. He say he tryna' trust you, doesn't wanna disgust you but he was in the mist of sinners and did not discuss you and just today his anxiety's got the best of him, he knows Christ but for hours refuse to rest in Him, he's not the best of men but Lord I know he really loves you and I can't understand why lately he's not thinkin' of you. People trust this dude, you could crush this dude, Father he needs more of you I pray you touch this dude, what can I say to him? I'm determined to pray for him Father empty and brake him I pray you'll just have your way with him, coz there's a change in him and the effects are strong, I pray you open up his heart before the next song and when he gets home, I pray he'll open up the sixty-six book love letter you wrote and soak it up coz he ain't hearin' You and he ain't feelin' me and God I know it's killin' You because it's killin' me and matter of fact there's somethin' else he's concealin' see, the person that I've been prayin' about is really me...
Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, I'm prayin' for you Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, yeah, I'm prayin' for you...

some new year tag

Bungi tagged me. So here goes..
1. What did I learn?
I learnt that IT is not impossible. IT can be anything. Well if it really is impossible then too bad but if someone has done if before, don't think you can't cos you can. Even if someone hasn't, you can still try...and maybe succeed.
I also learnt about a lot of things that i need pages to explain about. So maybe later.
2. What did I accomplish?
My B.E degree!! hehe.. yes, i'm quite obsessed with it cause i really suffered for my final year project!
And i got my driving license!
3. What would I have done differently?
A lot of things.
4. What did I complete or release?
My final year project.. lol..
5. What were the most significant events of the year past?
Finishing college, Israel, turning 21(officially old now), Malaysia,Japan, Pune, spending time with family and friends.
6.What did I do right?
I didn't give up.
7. What were the fun things I did?
I'm not a fun person. I don't do fun things.
8. What were my biggest challenges/roadblocks/difficulties?
Biggest challenge was definitely my final year project.
9. How am I different this year than last?
Its only been like 20 days into the new year. Ask me in another 10 months.
10. For what am I particularly grateful?
It may sound cliche but first God and then my family and all my friends.

what then?

I was thinking how sometimes you talk to someone, you laugh with them, you share feelings and emotions with them and you consider them your friend and then one day you realize you don't really know much about them. Stuff about their family, about their personal life, about their spouses/partners, about their children. Nothing you don't know about them at all. And then you feel a bit annoyed cause you share stuff with them and tell them what's going on with you but then they don't do the same. A close friend was telling me this. How she thought she knew this guy cause they spoke often, she enjoyed talking to him, she thought he was funny, understanding and a great friend. Nothing more than a friend but yes, a friend. And then she found out he's actually married (he's from another country and came here for work), has kids and all these stuff she never knew cause he never spoke about them. And she's wondering why. Well i'm not sure why but sometimes i am like that too. I listen to others, i talk to them about their problems, and well i just listen more. I don't talk about me. I don't tell them what i'm going through. Sometimes i feel that i don't need to talk about my problems or what's happening as most people would not be interested. And i'm most of the time not in the mood to talk about myself personally. Sure i talk... A LOT but not to everyone about myself but rather general stuff or common issues. So maybe this person felt the same. Maybe. What do you think?

happy new year

It feels good to be!!
I haven't logged on in ages! I even forgot what my blog looked like. I spoke to Boongi this morning and she said i need to check my blog and being a faithful trustworthy friend who listens to what elders say i signed in.... and i do not know what to write..
Well, i definitely prefer texting to calling. I made up my mind on that.
