PostHeaderIcon Take My Hand by The Kry



Take my hand and walk - The Kry


I know there are times
your dreams turn to dust
you wonder as you cry
why it has to hurt so much
give Me all your sadness
someday you will know the reason why
with a child-like heart
simply put your hope in Me

[CHORUS]
Take My hand and walk where I lead
keep your eyes on Me alone
don't you say why were
the old days better
just because you're
scared of the unknown
take My hand and walk

Don't live in the past
cause yesterday's gone
wishing memories would last
you're afraid to carry on
you don't know what's comin'
but you know the one who holds tomorrow
I will be your guide
take you through the night
if you keep your eyes on Me
Take my hand and walk where I lead
Keep your eyes on me alone
don't you say why were
the old days better
just because you're
scared of the unknown
take my hand and walk where I lead
you will never be alone
faith is to be sure of what you hope for
and the evidence of things unseen
so take my hand and walk
Just like a child
holdings daddy's hand
don't let go of mine
you know you can't stand
on your own

Yes Lord, I just want to hold onto Your hands and never let go!

PostHeaderIcon Back in Malaysia ;)

It's just been a week since I arrived yet so many things has happened since!

I really had an interesting week and I cant be more thankful for the many things God has blessed me with!

I really am blessed to have been offered a roof over my head by Pearly's family. Her whole family has been so nice and warm and I really feel so comfortable here :) And, her po po is an amazing cook! A cosy place to stay and yummy food, what more could I ask for?! And I get to see sunrise from Pearly's place in the morning:)


I was first welcomed home with news that my luggage didn't arrive and was left in Muscat. Muscat's the capital of Oman and the place is rocky, without trees:S
Although it was a bit inconvenient, I was actually glad cause the luggage was then delivered to Pearly's place. Too heavy for me to drag it down to KL Sentral..hehe
Nevertheless I really think Oman Air is a good airline, service was very good and they fed me well:D

Wednesday was a new day for me. My first day of real, proper work! Pearly's dad and her dropped me at work, so sweet of them right? Told Pearly, it felt like mummy bringing her child to school. haha.. Had a short orientation that day and I met a new friend, Audrey. She going to London in July so we loads to talk about. And guess what? She stays really near Pearly. Got a lift home and a lift to work from her the next day! So thankful!

Yesterday I got on the Ladies only bus back to Central Market. Thought that was pretty cool:)

Today, I got a lift back from a colleague and as Pearly's parents were out, I prayed that I could catch bus T504 or else I would need to take the cab. Just before my colleague dropped me, I saw the bus in front and ran for it. So blessed to have got up the bus cause Pearly says the bus is very irregular. You have no idea how happy I was :D

It's been an interesting and amazing week so far!

A week of gratitude and thankfulness for God's provision in my life!

PostHeaderIcon Outside the window

I must admit, I've been enjoying the comforts of being at home this year.

But beyond that, I enjoy looking at the many things going on outside from inside :)

On a windy morning, I enjoy looking at the grass in the garden swaying in the same direction of the wind. I don't know why that amuses me but it just makes me smile :)
I am amazed by how the tiny leaf is so strong, bending all over when the wind blows but is alright when the wind stops.

Almost 2 weeks ago, I saw beautiful, colourful tulips in my neighbour's garden from my parent's window. Such bright and lovely colours but today, there were gone :(
(Didnt take a picture though :( )

Also, one evening, I saw my brother walking back home from the window and I ran to get the door for him. He was surprised and I loved that surprised look on his face and the way I replied I have physic powers when he asked how did I know he was back? haha :D

Last last Monday, a police car stopped outside my house. I saw a big dog with a policewoman talking to another policeman who was sitting inside the car. That was a bit scary cause I did't know what was going on :s

Ann and I love looking at the big trees outside her room window. Such a peaceful and calming sight:)

Yesterday's weather was lovely. Rained for a few minutes but nevertheless, it was a cloudy day.
And I love cloudy days.
I enjoy watching the clouds move in the direction of the wind and looking out for clouds that resembles an animal or something else.
I tried recording the clouds moving but nothing seemed to moving in the video. Lol.

I also saw a bird hopping up my neighbour's 45 degrees steep roof and sat on the flat top for a good few minutes. I wondered what was it thinking up there...

Today, I saw a teenage girl who was holding onto her younger brother's hands as they walked pass my house. The boy was probably about 5 years old.
She was in a red coat while he was in a blue jacket.
That put a smile on my face cause it was a really cute and sweet sight... *awwwww*
(Tried to capture that sight but my memory card was left in my computer :/ )

I also saw a pretty ginger cat cross the road and made its way into my neighbour's garden. It actually walked through the gate but left through the bushes. haha

Every time I look out my window, I see the uneven hedges which reminds me that they need trimming. They're out of shape and so much messier than my neighbours. haha

This week, I have something beautiful in my room.

I really like the thick green leaves as I think they really brings out the lovely colours of the roses:)

PostHeaderIcon Guess how much I love you ♥

'Sometimes when you love someone very, very much, you want to tell them how great your feelings are. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not an easy thing to measure.'
- Guess how much I love you


Read the really cute story, which made me smile :)

'....love is not an easy thing to measure.'

A simple yet profound sentence. Got me thinking for a while.

How do you measure love?

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
So BN won the state election again.

The 7th, 7th!! term as CM :S :S :S (that's 7 times 4 years = 28th year)

All I hope and pray now is that conscience strikes those corrupt leaders.
Because of all their evil and selfish ways, there isn't any significant advancement in Sarawak at all. The growth of the state have been stagnant and idle. The leader aren't doing anything for the people and the state, but for their own personal gain!

I don't mind who wins, as long the interest is for the state and people.
And I long for the development of the people living in villages and that they have the opportunity to be educated.

Alice Lau, a first time contester cried when she lost. Her tears shed not because she lost the seat, but because '我输给金钱和政治!' How true!

I believe change will eventually happen. I believe its just a matter of time!

PostHeaderIcon A new beginning!

Tomorrow is and hopefully will be a significant day to me and my state, SARAWAK!
I love my state and I am proud to be a Sarawakian:D

16th April marks the 10th Sarawak state election and also Carey's birthday :)

Having read loads of wall post and some interesting articles online, I too am really excited to know the outcome of tomorrow's election.

I really am praying for a significant change in my state. It's really time that some changes are implemented and new blood is brought into the state government.
New people whom I truly hope are passionate about the welfare of the people and state, those who want to make a difference and who can deliver promises.

I've not registered to be a voter but I've told myself that I will do so when I'm back. In future, if I'm in the country or even in Singapore or another neighbouring country, I will make it a point to go home and vote. I do believe that every vote counts!

I really love my state and would really want to see a breakthrough in the political arena of my state. It really hurts and breaks my heart to know that the land and resources that belongs to the people are being 'owned' by some people who has been robbing the state of what we deserve!

Sometimes I wonder, why are some ministers so corrupt? Where were the promises they made at the start of their campaign? Why were the promises made conveniently forgotten?
Of course I'm sure they are people who stood for election with a passion to serve and make a difference. I do hope that continue to have that passion within them and deliver the promises they've made.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To my bestest guy friend ever,

Happy birthday!

You know I wish I could be there and I am looking forward to meet you soon :D

xoxo

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today, Ann, Brian, Mike and Scott came down to Bristol to see me! At least that's what they say :D

So happy but then 9 hours just seemed so short:'(

Ann brought many books for me to read and have a look at. Seriously, there is no one else besides her who has been continuously encouraging me to try hard to work here.

A verse from her,
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD himself,
is the Rock eternal.
Isaiah 26:3-4


Amen.

PostHeaderIcon Children

Children Learn What They Live
By Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those
about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Ann posted this on her blog and I really think it's a good piece of advice.

Nath also mentioned that what habits we have now, we'll bring it into our family in future.

So true! It's so important that we reflect on our habits now. Cause if we dont change our bad habits, it'll still be a habit we hold onto even when we have children in future. And of course, I'd like to be a good example to my children. It's quite scary to know how easy it is to influence a child. I want to have well-mannered, polite and well behaved children in future and I will try to be the best example to them :D

PostHeaderIcon Anxiety attack! :s

I think my emotions has been on a roller coaster ride in the past 2 weeks.

Right now, it's an anxiety attack.

While drying my hair tonight, I realised that the week is almost over and that doesn't leave me with much time before I actually leave this place. Feels like there's still much to do yet time is running out. *panic*

Not being able to sleep now isn't helping :(

PostHeaderIcon Chincilla

This little fella, which I found out yesterday has an interesting name.

Chincilla - sounds like some Mexican food to me :p
Mouse like ears and body like a guinea pig.


Today's trip to London has been the shortest but most interesting one so far. The bus driver took different routes, both to and from London and I saw some really interesting places and boats. On the way back, the bus driver drove along a river, where there were many boat houses. And they were colourful boat houses, lined neatly next to each other in a long row.

Weird as it might sound, but I love going to markets here. Today I went to Borough Market. Made my day!! There were so many things on sell there, lots of food stalls, one selling curries, thai green chicken, seafood curry, venison curry, duck confit burger, crepe with smoked ham, wild rockets and brie, pasta, loads of cheese, fish, meat, bread, sausages, cakes, pies, fruits and a stall selling many many different types of mushrooms. There was a fruit juice stall that sold wheatgrass juice. A shot of wheatgrass = 3 days of greens!

I walked out the market a happy girl:))) Wish I could buy and eat everything there! Everything looks so yummy! :D

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Having spoke to an audit manager from EY Malaysia today, the desire of wanting to stay here is stronger than yesterday. She mentioned that ICAEW is growing in Malaysia, but I'm sorry, I don't see how the Big 4 firms are helping their audit associates pass their ICAEW exams. I know it's tough studying and working at the same time but how is the firm helping when it seems like the firms are always faced with a shortage of staff and work their staff like crazy? She also mentioned that during peak periods, sometimes you might work till 1,2 am! And you're expected to work on Saturdays as well. With such long working hours, you really can't expect too much from students who are studying as well.
The idea of such a working life isn't appealing at all:(

The author of a book I read said job hunting is worst than being in prison because life is so uncertain during that time. I concur!

But it's okay, job hunting is part of life:) It'll end at some point.

PostHeaderIcon Career aspirations:D

Today, Isabel told me that her dream was to work for one of the Big 4 firms. She's achieved it now and is working for EY KL. Really happy for her:)

I wondered why didn't I have such a dream...hmmmmmm...

I guess the top 10 firms would do for me:) Oh, I just found out this week that probably up till the top 20 accounting firms in UK have offices worldwide too!
But I know where I'd like to work. Canary Wharf! Some day, I hope:)

Today, I started filling the longest application form ever! 11 questions from UHY Hacker Young! I have no idea why would a mid-tier firm want to know so much about me.

Speaking of that, the application forms for UK and Malaysia are quite different. UK firms wants to know about me, about my skills and examples when I have demonstrated such skills. The Malaysian firm's form, which I filled today focused more on what I know about the firm.

One more thing, UK websites are very user-friendly. You can get almost everything you want to know off the firm's website. Obtaining information from Asian websites on the other hand can be such a pain :s

I miss Cardiff's water! :(

PostHeaderIcon Spring's here :DD

Spring's here!
It's getting sunny and the days are only going to get better now:D

Flowers are blooming and the sakura trees, the tree with white flowers (no idea what's it called) and daffodils just makes the park so much prettier now. And makes me happy too:D

Was at Wilkinson's today and saw all the gardening stuff. Didnt realise the amount of fruits and veg we could plant at home now. Looks fun and exciting! I wanna plant herbs.
My mummy's planting tomatoes and some fruit plants. Will see how it goes:)

Sunshine :))))

The best 6 months in UK is here!

PostHeaderIcon Cardiff

I'm back in my favourite place in UK!!
I really love Cardiff!! I feel so at home here in a different way as my family's in Bristol. I guess it's cause I have another big family here:DDD

FOD 8 was good and I thought the dikir barat this year was amazing. Stephanie's Chinese dance was pretty good too cause it has a mixture of 3 parts:)


By the way, my lil girl said the cutest thing on Sunday. Mui said, if you don't get a job in Cardiff, you wouldn't be able to meet your Welsh guy. hahaha... I told her that one day if I ever marry a British, he must be Welsh. That's how much I love Wales!

The last time I came back, it snowed and I was holed up in Ann's room for 5 days.
Thinking that I would be able to spend more time with my friends this time, I was really looking forward to this trip. But, since Saturday till today, the furthest I've gone was City Road, dinner on Monday and yesterday, Lidl. A bit sad..
Think my friends assume I'm having fun but I've also been doing some work. I've been in the library doing my work for the last 3 days as I had to prepare and Ann needs to study too.

I'm so thankful that I got an email on Monday to say that I've been invited to a phone interview with Santander. I just had it 10 minutes ago, was somewhat quite nervous today and it was worst when the lady on the other side spoke so fast with a strong accent and I was seriously struggling to understand what she was saying. Plus, her line was bad and there were interruptions halfway during the conversation. Stress! But am so glad for the opportunity and glad its over now:)

Now my holiday begins:))
So happy that Ann doesn't have class yesterday and tomorrow:)))

PostHeaderIcon 23rd

So I've turned 23.

Was looking forward to being 23 on the 23rd when I was younger cause it has sort of been my favourite number.

But if you asked me weeks or days ago, I wasn't really looking forward to it. I'm not at my best point in life but there's a season for everything. It's just a phase of life I'm going through. To be honest, I don't like the idea that I've not been doing anything for many months now. It can be sad and rejections does affect my morale. There would be times when I just didn't feel like doing anything, for days. Not saying I am badly affected by it, but I do have my up and down days too.

Nevertheless, I had a great day, cooked and had dinner with my family:)
My bffffff sent me flowers through the post! Was surprised and didn't react as I should at the door. haha..

Day 3

And when you've not heard from a friend in some time, their voice just puts a smile on my face :D

Thank you Lord for giving me life, for family and friends.
In the midst of having more faith and leaning on your strength and not my own, I thank you for your unfailing love and grace!

I met an English footballer yesterday!

He was sitting at the table across mine and he smiled to me. Naturally, I smiled back without knowing who he is. A few minutes later, he was introduced and I found out that he's Dion Dublin. Apparently he represented England some years ago but has retired now.



He's really down to earth and very tall too. Missed the chance of taking a picture with him:(
