a Great evening with the guys! although this ORD excitement had been over for months but we are still talking about it… another popular phrase or question is: “How’s LIFE?” hahaha.. It was great to see everyone (well not full attendance) doing well.. Study… Work… Slack… at least everyone is healthy and happy=)
I feel OLD once again with them! come on, majority of them are like 20 (1989 batch) that’s the age of my younger brother! Guess our differences is the “stages of Life” we are pursuing.
How will it be like if I’m going to further my study? to become a student once again? Will I achieve what I want? does it even make sense to be Practical? Perhaps my mind is set long ago 🙂
Take Care SR/MD/MATT. Wish you guys the best in your future endeavors, esp MD who is not returning anymore! What a lucky ba**ard! hahaha.
Yup I appreciate what comes my way and reality is always ugly. U don’t always get everything you want… but life is a game, u have to work hard for what you want even if you don’t get the result be grateful that U at least have chance to try 🙂
In about 2 more weeks I will be officially ORD! well, the excitement is getting dimmer cause now that i’m clearing Lve / Off it already feel like i’m ORD-ed and honestly my vision is still blur cause I have not settle down yet, thou i’m doing good at the moment but I believe it can be better.
Watched many movies this month, some were bad and some were terrible (why do I even choose it?) but some were EXCELLENT! I narrow down to 3 of them! and they are………………….
#1 – My Sister’s Keeper
#2 – Julie & Julia
#3 – 500 days of Summer
I tear when I watched My Sister’s Keeper and in my memory, the last time I tear so badly is with Titanic (that’s a classic film isn’t it) therefore I’m very happy after the show cause another good film touched me! It was so good that I’m gonna buy the DVD just like what I did after watching Titanic and FYI last time the technology only have LD (laser disc) and it was quite expensive I spend abt $80 on it.
One of the reason I like J&J is because of Meryl Streep and it all started from Devil wears Prada and follow by Mamma Mia! then Doubt and now Julie & Julia =) She’s good and this film was quite different… it makes me wanna COOK as well lol =)
500 days is simply the Sweet Romantic Story but I think mainly is the Casting, especially the male & female lead and I like the way they edit the film. Instead of going day by day they bring you to back and throw u back to the beginning and U jus want to continue to find out more. It’s quite interesting I must say.
Check out the trailer of My Sister’s Keeper.
Had a simple yet meaningful dinner with my batch of occifers. sadly YQ, MD, MT and LT all not able to come due to exercise. Still we had alot of fun talking about the past.. errr… sound so Old huh!. anyway ORD LOH!
Wish everyone all the best in their life.
Thank you Joel for organizing this gathering.

Although my religion is Christian but I’m not active in it cause I see myself more of a free-thinker but never the less I still do believe the exist of Jesus. This morning there is this 2 lady who drop by my house and have a short sharing session. honestly, the first thought is “are they trying to sell me anything?” I’m sure most of us feel this way when stranger approach you. oh well, at least I do but I decided to give it a try since there’s no harm listening… so it was about sharing the name of GOD. I appreciate their effort in standing for 15mins outside my gate and sharing this name call Jehova. at least for this morning I get to know something new.
Yesterday did a interview with our new trainees who just posted into our unit. It was a different kind of responsibility.. to enlighten them and solve all their problems. I never know how important a Interview can get till yesterday. Sadly, most of them are fear of the training and some even thought of giving up when the actual training had not even start. Although I can’t see their graduation ceremony but I sure hope to see them endure and finish this 16weeks.
As for me, I need to pack up and start my journey. I not sure how is going to be but will be optimistic. Afterall, i’m 24 there’s still a long long way to go isn’t it…
Continue reading to find out how the name Jehova come about. I not sure if this definition is correct?
by Micha F. Lindemans
The name by which God revealed himself to the ancient Hebrews (Ex. 6:2, 3). This name was spelled “hwhy” (the Hebrew equivalent of “YHWH”) and is known as the Tetragrammaton (meaning “four letters”). Since it was considered too sacred to pronounce, the Jews would substitute the Sacred Name (Ha-Shem) with the word “Adonai.”
To indicate this substitution in the Masoretic Text, the Masoretes added the vowel points from the word “Adonai” to the Sacred Name. Early Christian translators mistakenly combined the vowels of Adonai with the consonants of YHWH, producing the word “YaHoWaH.” When the Scriptures were translated into German during the Reformation (16th century), the word was transliterated into the German way of pronouncing it: the “Y” as the English “J”, and the “W” as the English “V” — or “Jahovah.” In the early 17th century, the Scriptures were translated into English and the word was again transliterated, as “Jehovah.”
This error has carried over into many modern (English) translations, but is now recognized as a translation error that was never used by the Jews. – http://www.pantheon.org/articles/j/jehova.html
“Coco Before Chanel is the story of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, who began her life as headstrong orphan, and through an extraordinary journey became the legendary couturier who embodied the modern woman and became a timeless symbol of success, freedom and style. The film portrays the formative years of Chanel’s life, the years of Chanel spent discovering and inventing herself.”
Caught this movie a week ago. basically this a life story of Gabrielle Chanel, known as Coco, before she became famous. Enjoyed this movie especially with the French language it makes it sound so nice. True Story is always the best but on the other hand. it always come with a sad ending too. If you read her biography, you will have known that after her mother’s death, she was put in an orphanage by her father who worked as a peddler. She was raised by nuns who taught her how to sew—a skill that would lead to her life’s work.
This movie also gave me a glimpse of the era back in late 80s and early 90s. The clothes, dress they put on themselve and how accessories like feathers that differentiate their “level” back in their era/society. Is quite interesting and fun to see Gabrielle Chanel having her own style which is totally different and maybe to the rest back then, it was just unacceptable. I love her confidence and admire peoples with such confidence and able to make decision without others influence. Sometimes, I hope to have such courage when i’m put to make a decision. I may seem confident but still lacking somehow.
About AUDREY TAUTOU, actually I never heard of her before till this movie but hey she was famous and it was said that she stars in all the Great Movie and of cause her acting is good! Will start to dig out all her past movies.
Another 50++ days and I’m stepping out to face the world and finally can start doing things I like but there’s like a dark fear inside me cause I never know how things will turn out. I’m not worried about finding a job but is the right job which i’m worried about. I do not wish to stuck at a career which I don’t enjoy and live my life like how the majority did. I want to be different and take control of what I want. Is as simple as that isn’t it? =)
why does ORD seem so near yet so far?
I want to be FREE. you hear me?
