First Post of 2012

It's the first of January 2012. The most talked about year when it comes to the "end of the world" topic. That doesn't concern me much cause I think we shouldn't hold on to something which we aren't even sure is true.

As mentioned in my previous post, so much has happened in the year 2011.

- lost my dear doggie during chinese new year.
- failed my exams for the first time.
- adopted 2 puppies.
- more home-alone-experiences.
- had a massive surprised birthday celebration.
- passed 3 papers and I was so happy that I couldn't sleep the night I checked my results.
- had a short awesome trip to KL for Caryn's birthday celebration. It was a good getaway and get together.

- took an hour to get home from college because of the flood on the way home. Then, met a minor accident when a car banged into my car's side mirror while driving in the rain. (not sure if that's considered an accident but I hope it's not an annual thing)
- towels got saved from getting wet cause God sent the rain only after i got home. Very trivial I know but it totally made my day.

- went for youth camp the week before exams. I've never been to any camps during my examination period. Conducted games for youth camp for the first time and it's really not easy but I've no regrets because through this, God showed me again that He's in sovereign control of everything. The weather was great and He sent me 2 helpers to help out with the games just when I was short of 2 more helpers.
- travelled to Penang alone for the first time. I've never travelled to anywhere alone.
- slept during my precious break more than I have ever before during any other semester breaks. I don't know why I've been sleeping so much recently. I think I need to exercise more regularly.

That's all I can recall of among the many incidents happened in 2011. Didn't seem so bad after all. It's been a tough year but God has faithfully brought me through it though I've not been an obedient child. I've said it once and I'll say it again that in all circumstances, I could see God's hands working in my life and it's really amazing. I'll just wait to see the whole big picture.

I'm too lazy to upload pictures captured throughout the year so I'll just post some recent pictures captured during the week.

Yummy clay pot porridge with my favourite yau char guai in Sunway Pyramid.

Busybody Elly and Elsa looking over to my neighbour's house. Yes, they're that big now...

Dim sum for breakfast.

Mom spent us McFlurry after dinner in Jusco. It's my second time having the whole cup to myself.

- BBQ dory fish.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I went to Ipoh Parade twice in the week after exams. 3 times on 3 consecutive days to Jusco last week. Did a lot of Christmas shopping this time.

Snacks from Japan from Sue Jane =)

Mom found this while spring cleaning the house. It was my artwork in art class about a decade ago. Guided of course and i didn't draw that. Just coloured.

Saw this rainbow on the way home yesterday evening. It's beautiful cause it's the sign of the covenant God made with Noah.

New banner with new theme in church for this year.

Bought this at a 31% discounted price since it was the 31st. My first time too =)

Omelette served during new year lunch sponsored by my church today in a restaurant nearby. Everyone was too hungry so I didn't capture the rest of the dishes.

Looks like the pictures are mostly on food. Shows how much I've been eating recently. I think I spent most of my time eating, sleeping and relaxing. Anything but studying is holiday =)

I'm sad that holiday is over but life goes on. New year resolutions? I have a few but not gonna post it here and some are renewed resolutions cause i failed to achieve them. Incase you didn't realise, I've changed my blog title since it's new year and I don't like the old title anymore.

2011 has been a happening year with many ups and downs and I believe there are more to come this year.

Guess that's all for now for my new year post with random pictures.

Expect great things from God, attempt great things for Him!!

Got this from one of my previous new year posts:

God’s faithful care will extend to every day of the new year. We can count on that promise. - David C.McCasland

God holds the future in His hands
With grace sufficient day by day;
Through good or ill He gently leads,
If we but let Him have His way. —Rohrs
