inspired by lyrics on joooanne  
goodness knows how many times i might have said this before already, or maybe i never actually ever said it right out but the memory of it simply fleeted across my mind. every single time i hear this song, i remember sitting in the van in thailand, looking out the window into the deep dark night at the gleam of the occasional street lamps speeding past us, and humming its chorus. actually we'd been in the van the entire day and were singing songs of praise on ben's laptop running dangerously low on battery power when senny said something to the extent of, "there's this song i like a lot, its chorus has a string of long adjectives, but i can't remember what it is and how to sing it". probably nobody else remembers this at all, but i did because i was just looking on and wondering to myself, how truly magnificent He is. You who calmed the raging seas that came crashing over me...

now's the time to think about whether or not i should go for the next mission trip. it was such fun the last time, part of me's afraid of expectations and them ending up not being met. but i also recognise that my purpose's not to go there for fun. besides that, a truckload of other considerations i shan't bring up here. all of them are selfish "considerations". part of it's also 'cos i also wanna go hongkong. and i don't see myself as being a very effective "teacher" either. alright, i shall think on them and pray about it.

i can play "it is well with my soul" on the piano now! (albeit very slowly and full of mistakes.) i think i've got more to say, which i may, in a while... but baba summons me online and i gotta make a call at midnight.
Mood: good
Music: magnificent -- hillsongs

u consider that private matters? all sane human beings wear something which we call underwear wat...even though not all of them wear them ALL the time. hiak, hiak...everyone knows everyone else wears some form of underwear mah...so it's not q a private matter, eh? hahahaha...know u won agree with me...but i also dunno how to bai1 anymore liao....

haha. err. maybe because some people don't' wear, that's why what's under their clothes is private? hahahahahahaha!
