Icelandic Rock

Was digging through my passport holder today when I found this in it. It's an Icelandic rock which i picked up from the streets. The rocks over at Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, seems very different than those over here. They all seem to have pores or come in weird shapes and size. Guess I was too fascinated about it and I kept one in my pocket :D 

Amazing how one little rock and bring back lots of memories

Ironically, my brother said," What a dumb rock!" :D haha. oh well

Coconut Trees

Maxed out simplicity. Witnessed a group of Myanmar men tying a string across two coconut trees as their net for their volleyball game. Reminds me of days when we used our slippers as goal posts in the padang but maximum satisfaction.

3 times

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.

 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Many of times, we are only familiar with verse 9 onwards, but often we forget the reason why Paul said it earlier. 

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.

Thorns are there to hurt you temporarily and not kill you.

March-ing On

Time really flies and we are already in the third month of 2013. Just wanted to list down some things that I am grateful for so far in my life.

According to my dad, I'm the chief complainer at home and I must say it is some what true. haha.

1) I've been complaining about how my work place is far and it take me a while to get to school, which means i have to sacrifice my precious sleep.
What I forgot was, throughout the week, not once I had to stand up on the bus. I always had a seat and even some luxury to sleep on the bus :D Apparently the route I take daily is less travelled by students from my school and I can get some extra sleep without bothering to be caught off guard by them.

Also, I have the toilet in the morning all to myself, nobody to rush with me! :D

2) The food courts are far from my place
What I forgot was that I have the luxury to cycle everyday to grab dinner. I could kill two birds in one stone by exercising as well :) 

Thankful for days that I can stare and listen to the sound of the waves, wishing for more days like this.
