fried mee and food poisoning

i will never eat canteen fried mee ever again.

last friday, i ate fried mee for recess. during add math, i was feeling queasy - weird body aches, joint pain, nausea, headache, stomach disturbance... the norm..

thank god that komathy wasn't in school during chemistry. puked my guts out in the toilet. bleah... puking chilli out is never the ideal thing. you know how spice travels into your ears when you eat chilli? when you puke chilli it's 10 time worse, no kidding.

after school, i slept in the p.r. while waiting for my mom to pick me up. the bell rang and i jumped up immediately. bad action. i immediately felt like puking again. got my schoolbag. i thought i saw my mom's car outside the school gate but when i went nearer, it wasn't. by then i couldn't stand it any longer. i plonked my bag onto a bench under the tree and sat down.

instantly, i puked again... in front of several people. sikes, that was embarassing. some didn't notice though... waiting for mom was torture. finally she came and i just fell into semi-consciousness - between sleeping and not.

the doctor said there was some kind of epidemic going on around schools. apparently, i'm the first case from mgs. there were several cases from la salle, main convent... and others. (i couldn't pay attention)

this whole weekend (starting from friday afternoon), i think i've been completely awake for about less than 10 hours, and the rest, either half-asleep or asleep. but i think most of the time, i was half-asleep on the couch... my room's like a sauna in the afternoon.

effects of food poisoning:
- don't feel hungry although i eat less than a mouse
- feel tired all the time
- on-off fever
- headaches while watching tv or even reading newspapers
- major backache! (from being horizontal 3/4 of the time)
- cravings for ribena

horrid weekend. i couldn't study and i was actually looking forward to badminton on saturday! tomorrow, there'll be this thing where we'll go to the bangunan perak darul ridzuan as supporters for some quiz thingy... hope i don't start puking again. sigh... i'm tired of porridge... pork porridge, duck porridge, low shu fun ... bleah...

pork buns

i think form 3 was a pork bun. white and NOT attractive but then really nice inside. and when you are overseas and there are no pork buns, you miss them.

form 3 really didn't sound nice because of pmr. but then it was still the best schooling year ever. and now that i'm in form 4, i miss that year.

so, in all, form 3 was a nice hot char siew pau.

i miss the time after pmr. and of course the most happening class of all - 3 HORNBILL '07.

during the post-pmr activities, we actually raked up 12 winnings. if you asked me to list them all, i won't be able to.

i remember, though, taking part in the spontaneous story-telling competition, talent time, nature folio thing which we did on turtles ... i think there's one more but i can't rmb.

the best was still talent time. we actually practised super last-minute as compared to the other teams. lo and behold, we managed to rake first place and even the best performance award!

we performed lifehouse's "you and me" with jessica as the lead singer and guitarist and myself as the fill-in keyboardist [mind you, i really can't play the piano all that well :)]. debbie and glenna were the "music video" starlets.

typical storyline:

guy (glenna) reading paper meets girl (debbie) --> falls in love --> go 'berpacaran' --> argument --> temporary insanity --> kiss and make up (well... thay didn't kiss, of course, otherwise we'd be x-rated)

here are some pics:

the whole team. me, jess and the lovey-dovey glenna and deb

note kay lynn and yan wun grinning behind there

jess & i

there are many more pics but sadly, more than 3/4 are really blur. example:

notice the "fans" and "paparazzi"

we had many encores and we had tonnes of fun. well... at least i did. the prizes? we gobbled everything down in class (teachers allowed us to eat), we ate during our class party and we divided among ourselves. yumm...

well, exams coming already... so, i've got to STUDY!

FREE SERVICE: discard burdensome cares at Jesus' feet!

i cast all my cares upon you
i lay all of my burdens down at your feet
and anytime i don't know what to do
i will cast all my cares upon you.
this is my favourite song 'i cast all my cares'. whenever i'm troubled, i will sing it to jesus. it's weird, but it calms me a little after that.
things this year have been tough this year and there were countless times where there were actually tensions rising up between my friends and i. and i don't fancy it at all. it's like rubbing a finger hard on sandpaper. it "ouch-es". i don't like it.
jesus takes away all my hurts and pains. last week, i felt like a paper cup. used, crushed and thrown away. that's the paper cup theory. i went for a healing rally last night at yuk choy hall by pastor vernon falls. i really didn't know what to expect other than the crippled walking and crowds.
as i was on the way there with dad, i had a feeling that he would be healed of his arthritis. i had this ringing thought in my head that one day, he would be able to play badminton as usual without pains. dad brought along some small hand towels so that ps. vernon could sort of pray over them so they could be used to heal the sick.*
we went into the hall and my dad instantly recognised this 'kwai lou' man and woman. i had no idea who they were only that the woman looked familiar. but i've never met her before. as i shook hands with them and my dad introduced me, i suddenly went "hi, pastor." when i didn't even know who they were. but i guess the anointing of the holy spirit upon him was so strong that somehow i felt something.
the praise & worship was something that differed. it was in tamil. although people of many races were there - chinese and indian - they seemed to be enjoying the session although they could barely understand a single thing. i guess jesus is indeed the bridge that breaks barriers. the female back-ups were very typical bollywood singers - high pitched. the lead old guy had a strong voice. they had two drummers - one on the pad, the other on the real drums. once again it was typical indian - heavy drumbeats even during slow songs, but they were just so great. they even sang english songs - "god is good all the time", "as the deer" and "give thanks". marvelous.
i witnessed many healings that night. while pastor vernon was talking with the aid of a tamil translator, someone started screaming. he instantly said, smiling, "DON'T LET THET BOTHER YOU BECAUSE SOMEONE IS BEING SAVED TONIGHT. SOMEONE IS BEING DELIVERED TONIGHT. EVIL SPIRITS ARE LEAVING!"
there was so much assurance in his voice that i felt safe. that was the strength of the holy spirit. amen. just listening to him, people sitting down were slain. whenever we prayed with him, we were to lift our hands up and shut our eyes. he prayed the miracle prayer and many people were instantly healed from their pain! jesus is better than a specialist!
next he called forth people who wanted the holy spirit in their lives, to give them the gift of speaking in tongues. my dad encouraged me to go to the front. it has always been my desire to speak in this language and so i went forward, without much courage. i was afraid. i didn't know why. i was one of the VERY few youngsters there. so i went in front and i lifted my hands and prayed. i think practically more than half the congregation came forward. he prayed and the team from the renewal lutheran church came to pray. i got prayed by this pastor from taiping. at first i was resisting, but finally i was transported into this warm presence of the holy spirit. as i lay there, i felt warmth that was so comfortable. everyone around me started speaking in tongues** but i just couldn't. inside i cried out too god, "why?" i felt this woman come and hold my jaw and said, "speak" several times. itried but couldn't and after a few times, she left.
i started crying and shaking. i felt my dad's arms around me and i cried and cried. i didn't even know why. i couldn't open my eyes at all. then someone from the rlc told m dad not to hold me for it was good that i was crying. so i was laid down and i still cried. i realised i was the last there. i tried getting up but it just seemed like i was hitting my head continuously on the floor. but there was no pain. i couldn't get up.
then i heard that those who needed healing were to come up front. so i tried to get up again and again. i heard some women saying that i needed to get up for those who were there would be slain too. they tried pulling me up with my dad but i couldn't support myself. i couldn't walk. they had to half-carry me to a chair, where i was plonked down. i sat there staring at shaking hands and legs. i felt strangely better but slightly weak. suddenly, i remembered my dad who was beside me. i told him to go for the healing. and he went. all those who went for the healing were anointed with olive oil, prayed for and slain for several seconds. they got up, shared and were healed. my dad came off the stage, beaming. the pain in his fingers disappeared! PRAISE THE LORD!
on the way home, i told my dad that i couldn't speak and i asked why i couldn't get up. he said that perhaps there are some hurts in my life that needs healing before god can give me his gift. he also said that i was very sensitive to the holy spirit. so, his means, i have to let go and surrender all my hurt, angers and unforgiveness to god then only i can take a step forward in my walk with him.
that night will always stay in my mind. more than 50 people of different ages were healed from their diseases and delivered from satan's oppression. i have seen god's hand and i want to see more of it.
* "and god was going extraordinary miracles by the hands of paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were carried away to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them." acts 19:11-12
** "and when paul had laid his hands on them, the holy spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying." acts 19:6

midnight blogger

it's 12:10 and i'm here blogging the night away. tomorrow i have the ujian daya tenaga asas [u.d.t.a.] - pumping, sit-ups, stretching.

i did my 1, 500 metres last monday and i missed my target of 8 mins. i got a time of 8.35 mins. but oh well, i beat my previous time by 9 secs. so ok i'm pleased. besides i reached second out 66 students right after jessica, a difference of 5 seconds. and she's this super tennis player who trains, what? 3 times a week. i only train badminton once a week. so yeah, i'm happy.

but now, i'd better head to bed.

sniffs, sneezes and addiction

so, i'm down with a sniff. not a major one. the only thing i can't do is breathe lying down. pathethic, huh? and to think that i LOVE sleeping.

from a serious csi:ny addiction to heroes addiction. and then to house md. it seems like i can't live without these sort of tv shows. not that i watch telly often. i did have this thing for anime also. kyou kara maou, fruits basket.

now, i'm adddicted to something else - Law & Order: Special Victims' Unit. it's nuts but well yeah.

generally in every show, you would have a favourite character. well here are mine... [let's jjust say i have nothing to do so i'm actually blogging about this]

csi:ny --> danny messer [carmine giovinazzo]: i love his southern accent and his funny expressions.
heroes --> peter petrelli [milo ventimiglia]: this one i really don't know why.
house md. --> dr. house and of course, dr. chase [jesse spencer]: i don't know how he puts up with notorious house and even respects him. he could qualify for a calvin klein model and i love his australian accent.
kyou kara maou --> conrad weller [seiyuu: toshiyuki morikawa]: i like the way he was drawn. he has a calm, wise army-like behaviour, devoted to serve the maou - yuri. he's a mixed blood - mazoku and human. he was involved directly in a huge war which imprinted a tragic past. i like that.
fruits basket --> shigure and hatori souma: shigure's drawing is almost similar to conrad's and he's hilarious. hatori (dr. hatori) has a tragic past and he can erase parts of people's memories. cool and calm. rather cold yet professional.

the latest... law & order: s.v.u.
det. elliot stabler [christopher meloni]: there's something about his looks that make him look like a nice guy, like mac [gary sinise] from csi:ny. he loves his kids a lot and he's a devoted cop. nice...
det. olivia benson [mariska hargitay]: she partners elliot and she's a 'tough-as-nails' cop. dedicated and all. i love dedication and devotion.

when i get into something like tv shows, i involve myyself deeply in it. odd huh? like this one, i went to wikipedia and read stuff. i read fan fiction and all those stuff. when it was anime, i drew them like mad, till i injured my leg (seriously, the pins and needles caused a muscle pull). and guess what? for law & order, i found this blog totally dedicted to it. it's a whole series of blogs of all the characters. it's from their p.o.v. which is really creative. what a cool way to pen fan fic.

so yeah, i just watched one episode a few hours ago on starworld, read several fan fics and finished reading "olivia's" blog. maybe i'll catch some sleep.
