But well... towards the end of it, the meeting turned into an argument.. some bickering so that each side can reach an agreement. The client wanted lotsa stuffs in their website.. but... refuse to pay us extra for it.. so yar.. it's a bit unfair to us lahz.. so TW.. kinda restricted the client to make as little changes as possible..
well.. was trying my best to look serious then, and try to learn as much as i could.. but guess maybe the only thing that i'd learnt from today's meeting is the skill of negotiation baz..

Well.. I really think that it is good that we, once partners in gospel ministry in school, can still be continuing in the partnership of the gospel after the guaduation.. That warms my heart a bit.. to know that we may still continue to build up one another in this manner.
The number is small.. and the people combination is really fresh to me.. This is the first time i had bs (not cglg) with the accounting ppl like shih guan, phillips, sarah and francis.. oh.. eunice was there too.. so glad to see her around.. to learn God's word from the book of James tog...
well.. it's probably because of the camp.. that now I'm thankful and really appreciate the privilege that i have to study or listen to God's Word with fellow BASIC (Brothers And Sisters In Christ)... thanks God for that..

Yup yup... as the title speaks for itself, we had a wonderful evening at the Settler's Cafe .. feasting and playing games with one another.. (we played Jenga and Pictionary tog in groups...) However.. i felt that the tables are too long for me to have the chance to talk to the ppl in the far end.. like Alison.. and Dan.. and Christine.. i didnt even talk to Melissa for the whole evening..
Well... hope that we may have more chances to hang out with one another ba... and of course have a proper group photo then..

Tadaa.. and that's the new gal.. her name is Ruby, which is a computer language -also know as 'the next Perl (her sis's name)' Ya.. btw my cousin is a computer geek!
I was however amazed by his friendship with his friends.. it was so deep that he could allow her kindergarden aged Perl to stay overnight at his best friend's house.. Well that's amazed me because i never stay over at any of my parents' frens' house before... anyway.. that's not the point.. the point is i shall start making effort to love my friends.. to build deep f'ship.. so that in 10 yrs down the road we will still be having fun tog..

The level of interactions is superd manz.. we can simply sit down at any table during meals and get to know one another.. There seems to have no barrier - everyone is relating with one another in love though we just gotta to know one another. I'm sure that the motivation is from the good understanding of God's word.
Christianity is indeed about relationships - r'ship b/w God and man, man and woman, & man and nature. God created us, human being to be a relational being, and He teaches us, thru His word of how to relate to one another as we are to be. God's word, esp being taught in this camp, made us wise in our everyday living when we relate to ppl.
This camp begun w Philips Jensen giving us a bird-eye view of what's wrong w the humanity and that how foolish is man thinking tt God doesnt exist.. thinking that they can suppress the truth.. thinking that they can live in anyway they like.. little do they know that they are under God's wrath when we live e way that we are not created to be. How foolish are we to live without God, whilst we tried to build some gods on our own to satisfy our need for God... whilst we tried to relate to ppl w our own ways.
Joshua Ng is the one who brought us thru the book of Proverbs, teaching us to live in wisdom in our marriage, our work, in our dealing w money.. in all aspect of our lives practically.. Proverbs is a book of a father imparting knowledge to his son so that the son can be wise.
[Proverbs 1:1-7]The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight;
for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young
let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance
for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Chris Chia then rounded up the talks in encouraging us to continue to be wise. Life is about 2 choices - to live in wisdom or to live in foolishness. Wisdom is both a gift and task from God.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding
I learnt a lot.. truly a lot. Now just have to pray that I will be able to live wisely each day whilst facing the hostile world.. especially in relating to ppl. Though fall i may... but trust will be on God forever till the days end.

Then went to meet up w ray and yongjie.. at tye wei's place to talk about n do the proj... i think i work better in team.. it's not that stressful i think..
Sis called to tell me that grandma is hospitalised.. i went on to meet up shao wei for dinner though very much i wanna visit her.. when i receive a call from my mum telling me that grandma is hospitalized.. and that dad and her are visiting her.. i immediately rushed to the hospital..
NUH.. is never a place w good memories.. it always causes me to have mixed feeling.. and sadness.. I always dunno how to react when ppl are hospitalised.. thought of mel.. and cindy.. grandmum.. uncle.. sigh..
I wished and prayed that grandma can be well... that there will not be any clots due to the fall.. that she wouldn't die.. but well.. who dun die.. it's just that i dun wanna her to die without hearing the gospel.. without any hope.. Death is not the end of everything.. bible clearly stated that Christ will come a second time to judge the living and dead.. that those who believe in him shall live in good r'ship w the creator....
But.. how well can i communicate the gospel to her...? i can't even speak hainanese well.. Will i be as brave as tree to ask a hainanese stranger to talk to her..? i dunno.. i wasnt even a good testimony in the family.. will it be enough if i just pray?
