Fasting

Hi everyone, Jim. Well, my secretary , Hammy had been away for some time already. He hadn't been updating the blog did he? Oh well, you want to get a job done, you better do it yourself. Apparently, Hammy is now in UK. Do not ask me why and what but, he'll soon be back, I hope.

Anyway, fasting..yes yes. What about it? Recently, I had fasted for almost 40 days now for Malaysia. 40 days prior to Malaysia's Independent day. What do I fast on? I fast from solid food from 12-5pm. It wasn't easy coz, I eat a lot and skipping lunch ain't something that you can just skip it for fun. I need food, all the time. So far so good. I have like 6 more days to go till my fast ends.

Oh no, it doesn't end there though. This weekend, I will be fasting for 40 hours from solid food. Now, that will be the hard one. I'm fasting for the children in India. Most of the children in India, are denied the right to education. Why? Coz they are forced to work for their family. They will work about 17 hours a day, 7 days a week. Worst than that, they are only paid like 15 cents a day only. If they don't work, their family don't eat. That simple. How fortunate we are that we have food to eat. So, that's why, I'm fasting for them. Anyway, this 40 hour fast was organised by World Vision, and body that helps to make poverty history all around the world. With the money I raised, I can feed a single child for a month, that is if I raise $40.

Let us remember that, their impossible , is our possible.

To my friends...

To my friends...Jim here.
Salam sejahtera diucapkan kepada semua rakan saya yang dihormati. Hairan ke kalau saya ini tiba-tiba aje blog dalam melayu. Tak lah..aku nak 'test' aku punya bahasa ni. Dah lah berpuluh-puluh bulan ku ni tak cakap, apatah lagi tulis. Ye la. Aku sekarang ni bosan, hingga blog dalam bahasa. Haha, tidak sangka bahasa saya ni masih boleh tahan.
Oh ya, kamu ni sedang tanya akan Hammy ye? Entahlah dia pergi mana. Sejak semalam dah keluar. Malam-malam buta keluar pulak. Eh eh, tikus ni, apasal la dia ni. Pergi mana? Clubbing? Tidak mungkin lah. Kena pijak baru ada.
Oh ya, kepada rakan saya yang tidak 'paham' langsung apa yang saya cakap ini, 'sorrylah', haha, khas untuk warga Malaysia sahaja. Tetapi, kalau faham, bagus. Satu kelebihan. Syabas!!
Macam mana, ada pergi mana-mana? Hari merdeka nak tiba ini. Ada cuti sekolah ke? Haha, tak de lah. Sini mana ade cuti? Haha...tak mengapa. Dalam hati saya ni, masih patriotik. Jalur gemilang tetap ku kibarkan , dalam hati saya. Betul ini! tak percaya ke? Amboi..
Oklah, ku nak pergi ni. Sekarang dah lah pukul 5.19 petang. Hari dah malam. Nanti gelap gelita . Nak pulang ke rumah pun payah nanti. Pijak benda yang bukan-bukan baru tau. Ku balik dulu ya. Nak beli ayam lagi...aih...

Frustration...

Hi. Yes, as you can see it on the picture, it's frustration. Jim here by the way. It's a frustrating day. Haha..I can still laugh about it...weird. Anyway, here's what happened.
Plan to sleep and wake up at 2am to do my lab report but instead woke up at 4am. Ya, I woke up feeling a little angry with myself. Nevermind.
Did my lab report till 7am. Came to uni, discussed with friend about lab report.
Disagreed with what he said. I still insist that I'm still correct about my lab.
Did some more work.
Discussed with friend again, disagreed with him again. Haha...
Did more lab work. Went to see lecturer.
Came back, discussed with friend and what did you know, that stubborn still insist that he was right. I stood my ground and told him that THE LECTURER said so. What are you gonna do about it...huh...
Went to the lab to re-do some part of the experiment. My friend arranged the wires here and there in a confident way( and confusing too). I felt that there was something not right and I myself was confused too. I told him to take it out again and re-do it but no... Good thing that there's someone there to support me. He iterated what I said to my lab partner (oh ya, there were 3 of us). Finally, we re-do it again, connecting the wires here and there. See, told you, do it again and it's more clear.
Done my lab and report. I went to the office and submitted the lab report. I laid my hands upon it and asked God to bless it. Well, it's all up to Him now.
Now, blabing here..haha. At night, plenty more of work to do.
Despite all that, I still feel ok, though I'm a little tensed now. Oh well. God is my strength, my shield, my portion, my everything. What shall I worry about when I have God. Psalms 46:10. "Be still and know I am God....". I sent an sms to one of my friend today. I thought this verse was for my friend but I didn't know it was for me. Haha...yes yes. It means, relax, chill, for God is in control. I like this verse. Oh yeah!!
Ok bye, don't disturb. Saya nak buat kerja ni. Nanti masa depan baru aku blog lagi ya...Bye, jumpa lagi.
ps: for those of you who doesn't understand this, it's Malay. Hehe...

For you...Happy Chinese New Year



To my beloved juniors. I hope that only you all will read this but no one else. That's why I purposely edit my old post, a smart move you think? Dunno la, I just thought about it hehe. Anyway, if you are reading this, it means you already received my 'ang pow'. Well, since I can't really actually give money, I thought of indirectly giving you all 'ang pow' but with a message. Hehe...so, straight to the point. Why the RM10 notes, and not the green blueish RM50 notes...haha.

Red symbolises Jesus' blood, and also Chinese New Year. The blood that He had shed for us. CNY has many similarities with Jesus eh? Why a heart? The heart symbolises your own individual hearts. Hearts that belongs to Jesus. Notice that there is a shiny silver strip on the left side. That's where our human heart is, on our left. As you see the silver strip , it's reflects light right? The same thing with our hearts, we must reflect Jesus, and be lights of the world Matt 5. Notice the star that blast out of the heart? The different directions that it points? It is for the people around you. We are given a great commission, and that is to bring the gospel to all, no matter which direction, north , south , east , west... Then, notice the malay words, "ini sah" on the bottom? It declares that this heart, is real and is always true to Jesus. If y ou turn to the back, "RM" is obviously visible, and is stands for "remember me" . Remember who? Remember Jesus, and always put Him first in your hearts. There's where the visible number one comes into the picture.

Wow, I didn't know that this can actually symbolise so many things. Yup. That's all I have to say. It's up to you all to do whatever you all want with it. Take care, and God bless.

The Lord's Prayer

video

Hi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Opps, sorry, me paws are too small. Accidentally pressed too long. Anyway, Hammy here. Ya, apparently, Jim is already asleep. Oh well, he's just tired you know. It's now up to the hamster to do the job.

Jim was amused, er..no, not amused, but just impressed by this little girl. Haha, just barely 3 years old, she's already able to sing a whole song. Tell me, which of you humans are able to sing when you are 3? I know Jim can't. Don't ask me how I know but I just know. I'm a hamster of great wisdom..hahaha.

Anyway, this is the prayer itself:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,

hallowed be Thy name,

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven,

give us this day our daily bread,

forgive us of our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

and lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil

for Thine is the kingdom,

and the glory,

and the power,

forever and ever,

Amen.

Note, this words are a little different than what is being sung in the video but the meaning still remains unchanged. Good.

In the mean time, enjoy the video, and Jim said that he will get back to you about the meaning behind this prayer. Alright, I have some hamster wheel to run. Won't be sleeping the whole night though. Exercise to lose fat...haha. God bless!

Sickening!

Hi. Jim here. Why I said sickening? Come, let me tell you why.
I was walking in my uni, and then, I headed towards the library. Just outside the entrance, I saw a group of people, signing something. They were crowding around a table, a small one in fact. Curious, I wanted to know. Actually, I wasn't that curious after all. I kinda know what was it. Anyway, just to satisfy my curiosity, I went over. As soon as I took my first step towards the table , this guy approached me and asked me something that I will always despise:
" Hi, do you want to sign a petition for same sex marriage? "
"Oh, no thank you. " I answered while waving my hand indicating a 'no'. Then, as soon as I walked past them, I said "sickening".
Ya, it's really really sickening to see people doing this. Same sex marriage? What is that? It's disgusting and just disgusting. Why can men fall in love with men and how can a women even fall in love with a women? I just don't understand and I just don't get it. Biologically, I have no idea how this could happen. I just feel like telling a gay or a lesbian "haha, yeah, all the best in having a baby!". Oh, sickening. Imagine, a rooster mating with another rooster, a male lion mating with a male lion, mickey mouse marrying mickey mouse, daisy duck live happily ever after with daisy duck, cinderella engaged to snow white...now, you tell me, is that wrong or what? Don't tell me it's just a fairy tale, well, same sex marriage is just the same...duh!
Can't believe what is happening to the world today. It's just retarded. Not right. God forbids, the bible forbids, I forbid, sane people forbid. Again, just , sickening.
God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. He made man, and see that he was lonely, thus making him a woman, to keep him company. Then, God made man and woman to be together, to enjoy one another in their marriage. That's the beauty of God's creation. Ain't He a genius or what!
Anyway, I can give you thousands upon thousands of examples why same sex marriage is wrong. Look around you , and you will see why. I'm not too sure why people succumb to fall in love with a person of the same sex. Lonely? Desperate? Easier to get close to a person of the same sex? Whatever it is, it's wrong. Snap out of it. God loves us. Don't destroy yourself by getting involved in such a thing. God can help you. Just say a simple prayer to Him, and He shall answer, I guarantee.
God bless!
