i’m very sure i’m going to put on weight!
but i don’t regret going to Esther’s house yesterday – baking pizzas and eating them is real fun! :D
especially since they tasted so good!
looking at these photos is enough to make one drool…
[haha this time is all about the pizzas, i’ll talk about the people in another post!]]
i’m so looking forward to the next baking session! :D
( meanwhile, i SO need to exercise!!! >< )
The Parable of the Boiled Frog
Take a pot of boiling water and drop a frog into it. The frog instinctively kicks its legs so hard on touching the boiling water that it jumps out of the pot and hops away from certain death. Then take another pot, this time full of cool water, put the frog into it and then gently turn the stove on under the pot. As the water gradually warms up the frog is lulled into inaction and finally dies from overheating. It never noticed the gradual deadly change in its environment.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with this parable.
but I’m wondering if I’m actually guilty of gradually-boiling-myself in my daily life.
like the frog that’s frog slowly heating up, I’m perpetually stuck in my comfort zone.
procrastinating from one task to the next,
i’ve not made much progress in learning java/Cantonese/driving to my dispair T.T
in DHS I’ve been protected against the harsh winds,
but 世界那么大, that doesn’t mean that i can be complacent and neglect the harshness of reality.
it’s going to be very different at SMU,
i know it but i’m yet to prepare myself for it.
it’s a big world out there,
and i got to learn how to take care of myself.
i got to be prepared to meet aggressive people, have my own viewpoint and assert my stance, stand firm against opposing views, and most importantly, stay focused and work hard to get to where i want to be.
i know it’s not easy, but i’m very clear this is what i want and this is what i need to do to achieve it.
[friends, do help me out if you see me tempted to take part in a lot of activities. please remind me to stay focus! >< ]
it’s going to be very hard to make myself into someone that i previously wasn’t,
but i know i got to do it, and as long as i think more question more speak more, i can do it.
xiaoyou told me about her brother’s friend:
he went into SMU and didn’t like it there because it was so different from his personality. he even failed his 1st semester.
he could have just quit, and gone to another school. it was difficult but he stayed on, adapting himself to the environment despite it being very tiring to do so.
the transformation reaped results - he did so well that he made it to the dean’s list.
what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.
that’s exactly what i want out of my SMU education.
i found it really important to have something really different from DHS, so that i could go through the arduous transformation,
and hopefully emerge as a better and more balanced person than i am now.
i don’t have to be on the dean list.
i just need to achieve my personal goals of learning the way to study smart, gaining exposure and getting rid of my 惰性!
i’m ready to put in all the effort to step out of my comfort zone.
SMU, here I come! :D
i read this on facebook! i thought it’s really worth sharing :D
誰來教我們說再見？ Toy Story3 - 觀後感
我愛Toy Story3 ，還沒進戲院的，快去吧！

saw this on a friend’s PM.
The difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone is how you use them.
Oh my Alice, where do you want to go?
These days, I was struck by the fact that many of my friends didn’t know what they really wanted in their own lives. They came to me and other people asking for which would be the best for their future. I got stunned a bit. Those frozen times recalled me of the conversations between Alice and the Cat and the Caterpillar in ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
- Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
- The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to
- Alice: I don’t much care where.
- The Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
- The Caterpillar: What size do you want to be?
- Alice: Oh, I’m not particular as to size, only one doesn’t like changing so often, you know.
I admit it’s hard to find our true dream and commit to it; however, I can be sure that the one, who doesn’t have his own target, will never achieve happiness and meaning of life.
We have been conditioned to perceive lots of things the same, but our dreams should be different.
yes i admit that.
there goes my allocated time for slacking.
really love the 天真无瑕ness of the kindergarten kids @ PCF Hougang (:
how i wish we could all live in their fairy-tale land,
or that there is hope the world can be a place free of racial + gender prejudice…
YUP you’re right, awaitingmiraclez is BACK!
look out for a super long post to mark the offical comeback!
STAY TUNED! :D
