Ka Pow!!!!!







If you will react as above, please stop reading this. ><

I seldom weight myself, but I know I slimmed down when my pants became looser. And my shirt also. I think this is the after effect of being sicked for the past few weeks. Not a good sign at all!!! But then this is a free pass for me to eat even more!! wakakakaka!

That Special Song

I wonder if everyone is like me. Where you have this one special "sad" song.

I don't mean the songs that you listen when you are sad or heartbroken. I mean a song that will automatically pop up in your mind and when it does, you know you are extremely sad. Is a song that you don't chose to listen by yourself, it just appear! Do you have a song like this? I HAVE!!!!


Most of the time I don't think of this song. Hell! I don't even remember this song exist! But there are times that this song will just suddenly appear in my mind, and I know clearly that when it does, I'm in a very very bad shape.

I don't know why is this song, I just know is this song. Maybe is because of the drama, I'm not sure. But I don't like this drama, because there is no happy parts in the story. Those 2 lovers go through so many that there isn't one second that they are both happily together. Supper sad drama.

I'm Desperate...

... for something to do.

I can't believe I'm actually blogging at work right now. Before you assume I'm being lazy at work, I can assure you I'm not. Because I've went to ALL of my seniors asking each and every one of them what can I assists them to do and they said "NOTHING". I never thought I will feel sad to hear that word.

For these two days, I basically just issue some invoices, make some payment, scan some documents, photocopy some other documents and send some e-mails. I was so desperate to do something yesterday, I even whatsapp Jan (my CG friend) and ask her if she need help for translation ministry. I was so close to call Keith to offer my help too! And when Jan asked for help today, I volunteered myself to do the translation! I was more than happy to help her out.

I do appreciate the small break in between task, but I cannot stand having no task at all. There are times when I'm so busy that I don't even have time to go toilet. But now I'm so free that I even have time to spare after redoing my company's management account.

I had enough of FB and Candy Crush already.

Speaking of Candy Crush, I think I know why they are so popular! Hehehehehehe... Because there isn't any time limit! I can just leave it there when I got a sudden task to complete. I don't have to be upset that I cannot complete a super "happening" game. And the most important thing is, I don't have to click pause and can straight away change window when I needed to! Haha!

But I think this "long break" of mine came at the right time. Because now is the time where translation ministry need people to do translation for Easter production. And not using so much brain power during the day gave me more energy to attend Easter production rehearsal at night.

So ya, I thank God for this break.

But seriously, anyone have anything for me to do??? I'll help you for free!!!

Earth Hour - FAILED!





Yes, I'm guilty for not supporting earth hour this year. The truth is, I totally forget about it and was watching anime until my sis told me around 9 p.m. So as an effort to show my support, I went around the apartment to off all the lights. But minutes later my mom and my sis switch them back on because they say they can't see. ><

So I forget, I tried and I failed. Oh well, I shall save the earth some other time! haha.

If you've been following me on my instagram, you would have figure out that I'm very in to sketching/doodling/drawing (call it whatever that you like) lately. Thanks to Black Sesame I found this new love of mine. Been drawing for a week already and started to record my daily thoughts and life through drawing.  I posted 2 of it in my previous post. You can catch more of it in my instagram! So do follow me @sqlim !

One last thing! I've join a blog competition for the first time of my life! I know my chance of winning is very thin, but then please show me some support and vote for me please?? Pretty pretty please!!!!!


Sometimes I'm just curios if anyone is reading my blog, because I never receive any comments! hahaha. Hello?!!! Anyone here?!!!

Things That I Do #3






The other day when my sister was driving us home, I saw this guy beside us using his phone while driving. Is not like he is on the phone or anything, is like he is scrolling through FB or Instagram. I open up my window and did exactly what I drew. >< But apparently he din't heard me, or else I think I will be whacked. Ok la... I din't shout at him, just say it as if he just beside me.

But still, I really cannot take it when people use their phone while driving, even is a short while it can cause accident. And the road is a main road with lots of cars, really very dangerous. Even if you don't appreciate your life, I do. So please all drivers out there! Stop using your phone while you are driving!!!

No Music No Strength

This is how I look without music:


And this is how I look with music:


Somehow I came to a point where I do not have any energy if I don't listen to music in the morning. A lot of people think that listening music will make them be inefficient. But to me is the opposite. No Music No Strength!

I do not have any songs in my iPhone. So I started with a familiar song in youtube, then I randomly clicked on the suggested videos and I found some very very nice songs from some bands.

One of them and now my favorite is Passenger! I like their lyrics, their melody and the way they record their music. 

"Let Her Go" caught my love by its lyrics and "A Thousand Matches" caught my attention with the way it is recorded but its lyrics is beautiful as well.

Hear it for yourself!

Passenger - Let her go

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go
And you let her go
Well you let her go

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go


Passenger - A thousand matches

Lying on the mattress ‘cause my friend’s crazy sister took my bed away,
Sleeping, she looked like an actress, a theory I didn’t practice, I said “There’s gotta be a better way”.
She said: “You light a thousand matches when you finally set fire when you run away,
So why’d you go and do it when you knew that you would go and I would stay.
I hit the wall in frustration the conversation had been circling for days,
She said: “Don’t take it out on him, for the wall has always been supportive in the best of ways.
We’re laughing and crying like mad men dying in the snow,
For just one second it was funny that she would have to stay and I would go.

She said” I love you know I love you so; when you love someone well you’ve got to let them know.”
And I said:” Nothing’s changed I love you the same, but when you love someone sometimes you gotta let them go.”

She handed me a stone in the perfect shape of a heart,
She said:” I’m gonna take this home for I know you’ll only lose it somewhere after dark,
‘Cause some faces so terribly seem to lose everything you own.”
She didn’t mean it how it sounded, what she meant was she would stay and I would go
I said:” I love you know I love you so; when you love someone well you’ve got to let them know
She said: “Nothing’s changed I love you the same, but when you love someone sometimes you gotta let them go”

Sometimes you tear it all apart, to see the wood from the trees.
Sometimes you break your own heart to set yourself free.
I walked her to the station, hesitation in our movements and our tongue,
Words finally left after realized how uncomfortable they’ve grown.
What you want and what you need, well they seldomly succeed to grow.
We reluctantly agreed that when you love someone, you’ve got to let them go.

Chinese is complicated #1





My sister's friend came over the other day to format her laptop. I know this guy few years back, so before he left, he ask me 你现在在做什么 (what are you doing now?). I misunderstood him and thought he was wondering what were I doing with my pillow case, but what he meant was what am I working as now.  ><

Normally in English we will just ask "what are you working as now?" right? But Chinese, people normally asked it that way (I think), but I was confused that day! I don't know why. Been very blur lately.

Oh well, is ok I guess. That means more things for me to draw! wee~~~~~

My spiritual parents

When the world started to release their arrow of judgement and condemnation towards the couple. I stand at the side with them receiving the attacks from others who call us blind and brain washed. I kept silence when the case opens another chapter back in 2012, I walked away when I faced the reporter, I kept silence when people question me about them.

Few years back, I was one of those who questioned about it. Before understanding more about the cultural mandate and knowing more about this couple that lay down their life for God, I was one of them who question if it is appropriate for a Pastor's wife to dress like that, sings like that, in all to be in the entertainment world. To me it was, like others would say, too sexy and too revealing. I wondered too if what she was doing was appropriate, but I did not get the answer after few years later when I humbly come back to Christ again. Don't get me wrong here, I left church that time for personal reasons, it wasn't because of them. Christianity is my personal relationship with God, it will not be affected unless I decided to let it be affected.


I was willing to clap my hands and celebrate when a celebrity accept Christ. I rejoiced as finally there is a glimpse of light in the entertainment world which I considered as darkness. But when a Christian decided to step into the entertainment world, I called  it evil, obsessed with money and fame, consumed by the world. 

Why is there a double standard? Can't a Christian have the calling in life to bring the light into the darkness instead of just praying for a miracle of a glimpse of light to appear? Does not Jesus eat with the tax collectors? Jesus did not suddenly appear among the tax collectors, but He went into their crowd and saved them.



God gracefully opened my eyes and let me see that what she was doing was beyond what I thought. What I couldn't see from the music video was the hours she spends training her singing skills and dance movements. What I couldn't see from the numerous music awards she got was the souls and lives she had brought into the Kingdom of God. What I could not see from her glamorous lifestyle was the condemnation slapped on her face for crossing over. What I could not see from those bad comments about her was her heart that loves Jesus. It wasn't that much about her career in pop music or the dress she wears, but the life and sacrifices she made for Jesus.

I thank God that they obediently cross over. Without them doing so I may not be who I am today. It is because of them I have a spiritual family, I have a church that I call home and most importantly I have a personal relationship with God. So no matter what happens in the future, it will not affect my love towards God, my believe in the crossover project and my gratitude and love towards them. I'm proud to say that they are my spiritual parents.


Pastor Kong and Sun, I love you and thank you. Looking at your lives it impacted me a lot, beyond words can describe.

and everything nice






I'm currently at the stage where I decided to cut down my expenses. With all that's been going on and all that has been planned, I need to save up some money. So instead of always buying my dinner I've been cooking my dinner most of the time for the past week. And my favorite dish is the one above! Green pepper and carrot! It taste so nice that even my sis who hated eating green pepper is loving it right now! I'm a master chef! hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe~

I have a lot in mind now, so do stay tuned for more lengthy post within the coming week k?

Oh! If you haven't notice, I colored most of the drawing using iPad this time.
