Badminton. TENSE. I missed Chong Wei vs. Hyun-il. In add math, none of us could sit still. I thought I was the only person, other than Weng Hong who was anticipating this match. How wrong was I. The whole MGS group was too! Thanks to modern day tech, we got live updates. I think it was more kan cheong than actually watching it because of the waiting. We all shared the updates by word, little notes and hand signals. In the end, our wira stepped right into the finals against arch nemesis and world No.1 - Lin Dan aka Super Dan. We rushed back from Penang to catch the most anticipated match of the year. Lin Dan, full of confidence, managed to upset Chong Wei 21-12 in the first game. The Chinese' strokes were as confident as he looked and he wrapped up the entire match 21-8 in 19 minutes. While most Malaysians will criticise Lee for a lacklustre performance, I believe he did a great job in reaching such a high level as it wasn't easy at all as some would perceive it to be. After all, he did bring back a silver medal, the first in 12 years. Congrats, Chong Wei!
I really want to play badminton, but, have no one to play with. SOB.

Growing older and hopefully more matured has made me change in several ways. I have come to see many things around me. First of all, can the church be a barrier in you walk with God? Surely church brings good stuff - fellowship with Christians, hearing God's Word etc. But currently, I'm not at the peak of my relationship with God and at times, I don't think that church helps. Is the MYF going in the right direction?

We reached Menara Wesley and studied. Really?
We woke up before dawn to get to Catholic High. In the wee hours of the morning, I bumped into Stephanie Ngim, Grace, Ai Ling, Wai Kit and Joshua Teng - the Batu Pahat debater. Small world.
Later, Mom and Dad picked me up and I met Melissa in Lakeview Sports Club, Subang. It's been 9 months since I last saw her. We chatted for 2 hours and took pics together. Well, it'll be a long time till we meet again anyway. When I left, she waved at the entrance and I waved form the car until we couldn't see each other.
Sunday: HOLY HOLY HOLY
We went to Renewal Lutheran Church (RLC), a charismatic megachurch unlike the Methodist churches. Ps. Joshua Yee is a very anointed preacher. So direct and clear. We had lunch at Lorong Seratus Tahun Penang Cuisine, then, back to church for Ps. Vernon Falls' anointing service. This man of God is really great. He prophesies and anoints people with olive oil and healing does take place. Mom was slain and she felt warmth coursing through her body. That's a sign of healing. Later, a sore in her mouth immediately disappeared. I prayed mostly for SPM. As I was leaving, I felt a conviction that I'll get 11A1s. Hopefully it'll be true.
Dinner time at Mungo Jerry - a B.K.T. house. I love the pokari - some pork dish.
Monday: DAY OUT!
It was supposed to be shopping day but we ended up in UM to settle Dad's stuff. We went to the bookshop and I managed to find a rare gem - Basic Rock Rhythms for drumming with all the taugehs! Hoho. Jon's gonna have more work to do!
Then, we went to 1 Utama for shopping, but Mom and I really didn't buy anything. Well, she got a bag and I couldn't find any shoes for the convo. So Dad brought us to Ikano, which is adjoined to the Curve and Ikea. There, I got my first pair of girly shoes. LOL. It's 2 inches I think. It's nice but terrible to walk in. Give me sneakers anytime!
I got to see Reuben again. He can sit up on his own but can't crawl yet. But he loves to jump when you hold him up. He cries when he sees strangers.. me. Later, I visited Aunty JB and Alethea. Haven't seen her in years. She's got her curly hair back and is just the same as she was.
Tuesday: CONVO DAY
The varsity grounds was packed with people. We entered the Dewan Tunku Canselor for the convo. I got to see the Regent of Perak - Raja Nazrin who is the pro-chancellor of UM. He presented the scrolls to the grads. If you scrutinise this pic, you'll be able to see him and Dad.
Lastly, CONGRATS, DADDY!
