Cleanse us

5Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,

"God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble."

6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you... ... 10And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

~1 Peter 5:1-7, 10-11

Sigh.. everything is getting expensive. Eating out used to be a fun pastime for most people i guess. But now, with prices of food soaring, it seems like restaurants are not all that full at meal times. Makes me wonder where the crowd went to...

sheesh i miss the times when a bowl of mee pok was a reasonable $2.50. Now its minimally $3.50 at a normal food court. Heh cheapo restaurants have changed their menu to reflect higher prices, and portions have become smaller.

Sigh, wonder how do families cope with the rising cost of living here. Petrol goes up, food goes up, electricity goes up, everything goes up, except income =( sigh the life that we lead.. We rush rush rush to make a livelihood that may not make ends meet.

Want to have 3 kids next time, but hmmm, is 2 more than enough?

Well, definitely not that many kids. Heh I'd have to work like crazy.

Labour for what?

Hmm some people have noticed my change in attitude towards work in camp. Yeah, now trying to sort of do the bare minimum where possible, due to a change in priorities. Of course, there are other more personal reasons, which I shall not disclose here.

Cohesion yesterday was fun. Heh my bowling really sucks like crap. My pendulum method didn't really strike me of well. Didn't even get a single strike nor spare. Then in comes my buddy at the last frame and he scores a strike! Like wtheck... Oh well, some luck i have... Lol playing futsal with my bosses quite fun also. Woah a lot of them quite pro and on the ball one leh.

Anyway, searching for uni-s again. Now unsure about whether i should just stick with purdue, which is like ranked 64th in the entire world, or go for something better like carnegie mellon? Or just forget the whole US thing and go to imperial?

Prob should ask miss wang about it. Heh she's the wisest when it comes to this.

Oh well, tomorrow is the juniors' cohesion. Been looking forward to it, getting to know everyone of them, some of them for the 1st time, others.. well just knowing them again.

Sigh so out of touch..
