I Don't Have To Be Pretty To Be Happy

Thanks to those who hated me, you made me a stronger person...
Thanks to those who loved me, you made my heart grow fonder...
Thanks to those who envied me, you build up my self-esteem...
Thanks to those who cared, you made me feel important...
Thanks to those who entered my life, you made me who I am today...
Thanks to those who left, you showed me that nothing lasts forever...
Thanks to those who stayed, you showed me the true meaning of friendship.

A House Is Not A Home




**My favourite song of all time sung by Anwar Robinson (remember him? he was on the 4th season of american idol. Great talent, but unfortunately booted off 7th place)

A chair is still a chair, even when there’s no one sittin’ there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home
When there’s no one there to hold you tight
And no one there you can kiss goodnight

A room is a still a room, even when there’s nothin’ there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it’s just a crazy game
When it ends, it ends in tears

darling, have a heart, don’t let one mistake keep us apart
I’m not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, still in love with me

I’m not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there,
Still in love with me

The Perfect Man



I received this in my e-mail this morning. It was a forward mail. I usually dont open up forwards but i dunno, for some kind of reason i opened this particular one and at the end of the message, i was like.. wow. so instead of forwarding it to all my friends, im posting it up here :-) enjoy.

If men were buses, how do you catch one? A more important question is how do you catch the RIGHT one? Simple: You take only the bus thats headed the RIGHT direction.


First we must allow our Heavenly Father to do the picking. And second, the decision for a mate must be made on a spiritual and intellectual basis before its made on an emotional one.


What about love? You ask. Ill tell you why. The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? (Jer 17:(9). The heart is willful and is driven by its own agenda. It does not consider things rationally and intelligently it just loves to love! Therefore you have to point it in the right directions: Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life (Prov.4:32)


Whenever you meet a man, you need to get clearance from God. Check out his attributes, and then allow your heart to engage. Dating exists not for mating; it exists for collecting data. I believe that the biblical design would be friendship, courtship and then marriage. Friendship is two people walking together in agreement and accountability, learning and growing together. Courtship follows the mutual agreement to commit to one another exclusively it is the decisive turning toward the agreed-upon goal of the marriage altar. It is a period of laying a foundation and preparing your life together after marriage. But dating? Well, if you do date, use the time wisely to gather facts. So when you do gather facts, let us compare the process to clothes shopping.


1. Check out the fabric. Is the person mate material? Does this man have an intimate relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ? Does he care what God thinks about his behavior? Is he accountable to God as well as another co- laborer in the faith? Accountability is an important factor. It is imperative to maintaining a committed relationship. Is you potential spouse a member of the same family the family of God? Scripture is clear on this: Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? (2Cor 6:14). You need to have common interest and values and agree on the essentials of living day to day. You have similar spiritual walk. You eat the same diet. You enjoy a lot of similar things. You have like interests, like goals in life, like opinions on basis life issues. You have had like experiences in your background. Though there is some truth to the idiom that opposites attract, like minded folks fare better together. Furthermore, does he want to get married? If you want to be married and your dreamboat isnt interest, dont waste your time. Remember, women fall in love and get married.

Men decided to get married and then look for a wife. Note the difference in order. So if a guy says hes not looking for anything serious, take his words seriously. If hes not going your direction, get off the bus and wait for the right one.


2. Does this man want you? Is he pursuing you? The man who is right for you will pursue you and Gods hand in the relationship will be clear. No guessing, no fleece, no dead ends. Scripture says: He who find a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord. (Prov 18:22). Note - who find whom? THE MAN FINDS THE WIFE! From the beginning of time, God has transported men and women across the world in order to put them together. At the RIGHT TIME, He will bring that man on the scene and he will find you. In Gods perfect design, then man is the one who recognizes his mate. Adam has no problem recognizing that Eve was his missing rib. You do not need to strategically place yourself anywhere. You dont have to help a guy out because hes shy. Men will do whatever they have to do to get what they truly want. The man in your life should recognize you are the PEARL OF GREAT PRICE in his life and be willing to do whatever he must in order to gain your hand. If he is passive about gaining your affections, take it as a sign that he is not interested. Many a womans mother has suggested that it is a good idea to marry a man who loves you more than you love him. As cold as that sounds, it actually might be scriptural if you stop to think about it: We love him because he first loved us. (1John 4:19).


Until then, take the ultimate chill pill. You dont need a bunch of men in your life to make you feel all right about yourself. You need only one man your man, the one God has selected to select you. And trust me, the right man at the wrong time can be just as awful as the wrong man at any time. So trust Gods timing in this, He is the ultimate matchmaker.


Relax, sit pretty and allow yourself to be found.

Again WAIT until the man voices his intentions. He should take the lead in establishing the relationship. You may have inkling that he is the one, but God will use the man to set the tone of the relationship. Allow him the opportunity to woo you this is your first act of submission. Jesus set the standard for all men to follow. They should love us first. And they should lead the relationship.


3. The man in your life should not desire to move into your house, only into your heart. A man who prepares for your future has made his intentions clear. A man who is husband material has the means to take care of a wife. He is responsible human being who understands he needs to have something to offer. In short, a man should have the means to be a suitable lover for you.


4. Check out his buddies. Everyone knows birds if the same feather flock together, yet most women fail to see the connection between a man and his friends, A mans pals tell you a lot about the person that you havent seen yet. They reveal things about the guys character that might be hidden when he in on good behavior. Everyone knows how to put his best foot forward. Dont stay focused on the foot; check out the rest of the body.


5. Check out his relationship with his mother. How does he treat her? This is your preview of how he will treat you. There are lots of men who, because of a negative relationship with their mothers, really dont like women, yet they say they do. Unresolved issues between mother and son continue between husband and wife.


6. Remember that a mans family reveals the cloth from which hes cut. Take note and decide whether you want your future with the man in your life to look like his present family situation.


7. Check out the pattern of his life. Do you see repeated cycles of drama in his personal kingdom? Broken relationships? Problems in making commitments? Including the job market? Mood swings? Is a problem always someone elses fault? Does he embrace responsibility or shrink it? Does he keep his promise? Is he a man of good reputation? Remember all garments look wonderful hanging in the store, but with wear, some being to unravel. Give yourself time and space to check out the man in your life. Time will always reveal whether or not he is the right stuff.


8. Does this man have a vision for his life? Is he running with that vision? Remember, God decided Adam needed help once Adam got busy DOING his assignment. As we saw Adam, a man doesnt need help until he is busy doing what he was created and called to do. Is your guys guided by a sense of destiny and purpose, or does he just allow life to happen around him? A man who is not certain of his missions can be a moist miserable person and youll be miserable too if you know where YOU want to go in life. A man who has a vision is not intimidated by a woman whose mission statement is clear. He will be your best ally, cheerleader and assistant because he wants you both to make it! A man who cannot be supportive of your achievements because he is floundering in a sea of uncertainty over his own life is not a healthy partner to have and to hold forever. Creating dependencies or feelings of obligation is not the way to get the best out of your man. Somewhere along the way, he will resent you and flee from the smothering burden of obligation he associates you with. You want a man who is firmly anchored in his identity in Christ. Remember we are looking for a man who will be priest and leader if his home. His first instinct should be to want to cover you, redeem you, and provide for you. Your job is to decide if this is the man God has ordained for you to complement.


9. Complementary. Do your talents and gifts complement his? Do his gifts complement yours? What about your temperaments? Do you see the two of you as an effective team capable of brining blessing to the loves of those around you? Do your futures mesh? Can you coordinate your gifts in an attractive and effective way? This is why knowing your purpose is so important. Make sure your hearts beat for mutual causes. When I go to shopping, I always consider the fabric, the fit and what I already have in my closet. Will my next purchase be a complementary addition to what I already have? If I find that I am going to have to buy shoes and matching accessories to go with a new outfit, I leave it right on the rack. It is too expensive a proposition. If the man you meet makes you feel that you need to completely reinvent yourself, something is wrong. This is where I ask you to consider the relationship in terms of cost. Is this relationship expensive spiritually, emotionally or physically? Does your longing for a mate make you willing to forfeit who you are in the process? Or does he see you as gift that you are? The man in your life should consider you a RARE FIND, A PRICELESS JEWEL because of you he is going to get blessed big time! Any relationship that causes you to feel unworthy, unlovely, unacceptable, undesirable, or that you have to work for love is too expensive! God has called that man to cover, protect, and provide not only materially for a woman, but also emotionally and spiritually as well. You should be richer in mind, body and spirit for your union with the man of your dreams. The man in your life should make rich deposits in your heart and spirit, not withdrawals.


Ingredients:

10. Does he have a healthy love and acceptance of himself? Make sure the man in your life has taken time to heal from past relationships and has made peace with himself. How he cares for himself is how he will care for you. A mans relationship with God is crucial here. His love for himself will only be as strong as his love for God. This is not something you can impart. You cannot be his savior or teacher. That is out of spiritual order. In his rightful place as your personal priest, he should be leading you to a richer relationship with Christ. If he is causing you to compromise your faith and destabilize your walk, if he is leading you into sexual sin or causing you to be distracted from your commitment to Christ, the relationship is too expensive. Offending the Lover of your soul, who promises you eternal love, is too high a fare to pay for a ride that has a limited run. If you and your man cant soar in the Spirit, when the force of your love for another is tested by the pull or gravity of the world, your union will not be able to survive.


Directions:

So you decide. How much is your life worth? How much is your love worth? You will be able to accept only what you believe you deserve, God himself calculated the worth of your love and decided it was worth His life. He now pledges you His love for eternity. Yes, Jesus sets the example for all others to follow when He paid the ransom for His Bride. Should you expect less from a mortal man? Throughout the biblical age, men were willing to pay for the cost of the hand that they desired. The truth of the matter is, everyone knows that anything worth having, COSTS. And no one gets a ride in this life for free.

Thursday

Yesterday i woke up with a fat lip. the right side of my upper lip was swollen. ive got an ulcer underneath my lip but that didnt stop me from having a blast. There wasnt any electrity at around 9o'clock and that pissed me off. I mean, how many times in a week must there be a blackout? Can't there be NO BLACKOUTS at all in a week? it can get so frustrating at times.
Anyhoo, not to let anything to ruin my day i went out with my sister for lunch at CityMall. After pizza, we had some yogurberry & then headed on to vedablue hahaha.. talk about being godoot!
In the evening i went to Doulos again since it was their last day here in KK. There was a lot of people when we arrived but the crowd grew bigger by the time we left the ship. It was mentioned on the ship that their stop at KK would probably be their last as the ship is going to retire. I was kinda sad to hear that..hmm. Well, I ended up buying 2 books by Jane Austen (Sense and Sensibility) and Elizabeth Berg (Open House) but i dont think i'll be reading them anytime soon coz i havent even finished my other books. I was looking for 'Persuasion' by Jane Austen but there wasnt any. Ive seen 'Sense and Sensibility' the movie and i thought it was a good movie so i bought the book and 'Open House' is listed on Oprah's book club :-)

Me, looking so comot

Hahahaa.. not ready punya pasal la niiAn old friend who i havent met since 2003

Forever?


Neither things can last for a lifetime. Everything in this world at some point will come to an end. And that's a certainty we don't have control with. People come and go, things worn out, plans change, feelings subside, relationship ends, everyone of us get tired. There's no guarantee. And no matter how hard we try to hold on to something, a time will come that it'll slip into our hands or we'll choose to let go. Sometimes so sudden we won't notice it. And realize it, only when it's gone.

I used to believe in the saying "I'll stick with you no matter what.", but then it proved to be nothing but a lie. People, over time find better things, better opportunities, better people. We discover new things along the way, change preference, win some and lose some. The things that we once can't live without will be left behind and be ancient history.

Sad eh?

Love This





The Man I Was With You
by Jimmy Bondoc


Listen just hear me out
Yes I know we agreed
When we break up we’d never
Give in to this need
To admit to each other “I miss you”

Listen just hear me cry
No I won’t break my word
If I do say I miss you
It’ll never be heard
Let my heart whisper all that it needs to

How could you make me take a start
Then just leave me here hanging
Can’t even say how I’m feeling
How could you make then break my heart
If I can’t say I miss you, then let me say one last thing

I miss him
And all the things he could do
I miss him
Just as much as I miss you
I miss him
I know you’re wonderin’ who
I miss him
I miss the man I was with you

Listen just hear my voice
Can you hear all the tears
That I’m planning to hide
For the next thousand years
Just as long as you know that I love you

How can a blind man find the light
How can I find our kind of right
How could you take away my sight
How could you lose me in the night
Then you took away the heart in me
Now I’m losing this fight
(No, I will never, ever be the same)

*siiiiggghhh*

Yesterday


I am still feeling kinda tired from yesterday. I was at UMS since afternoon (1-ish pm) with my groupmates until nighttime (9-ish pm) to finish up a group assignment which is due next week. We only manage to finish up 1 of 2 assignment but i guess its ok, atleast something was done and our time wasn't wasted.

When i reached home, it was still raining!! the last part of the road to my house isn't asphalt yet (only God knows when it'll be done..seriously), i had to spray water to the car as i didnt want the dirt to stick. It was a bit difficult because i had to hold an umbrella on one hand, and spray using the other hand. I wanted to ditch the umbrella and just get wet coz im going to take my bath anyways, but i didnt want to get sick. Actually, i cant afford to get sick..too many school work needs to be done.

I ended up borrowing 5 books from the university's library yesterday and boy was it hard carrying them using one hand, including my bag on my shoulder, and an umbrella on one hand when i had to walked from the garage to the front door. As i near it, i thought to myself "oh crap. my keys are in my pocket, now how am i going to get it?" Nasip baik jerome (my bro-in-law) opened the door for me..*pheww* It saved me from having to put down my books, dig into my pockets for my keys and then having to pick up the thick books again *siiiiiggghh*

I slept early..about 12o'clock. Seriously, I could've slept until the afternoon if it wasnt because of the grass cutting sounds i heard this morning, which woke me up. Grrr.

Music bytes

I have had Sarah Geronimo's Taking Flight album for a few months already but havent really listened to the songs 'til last night. I was bored sick listening to the same old thing everyday, so i scrolled on my iPod and saw 'Sarah Geronimo' and decided to listen to the album. Guess what? the songs are pretty good, i must say. I'm currently listening to "Im Sorry".. i wont tell you what the song's about, read it for yourself..you'll get the picture hehe..



Im Sorry by Sarah Geronimo
How many times have you walked out the door
How many times have you told me before
How many times have you made me cry once more
and all you have to say was I'm Sorry

How many times have you left with no trails
how many times have you lied to my face
how many times have you done me disgrace
and all you have to say was I'm Sorry

And now you're coming back to me
And all you have to say is I'm Sorry
The same old story can't you see
And all you have to say is I'm Sorry
I guess the greatest Irony
It's time to give you my apology
We're done and now it's history
and all i have to say is I'm Sorry

How many times have I planned
How many times have I gathered my wits
How many times have I wanted to quit

I want to let you know
I want to let you go
how many times i've gotten tired with your lies
I'd rather have you out of my life

can't live with 'em can't live without 'em


He calls me baby
Then he won't call me
Says he adores me
And then ignores me
What's the problem?

He keeps his distance
And sits on fences
Puts up resistance
And builds defenses
What's the problem?

You leave me hanging on the line
Every time you change your mind

First you say you won't
Then you say you will
Keep me hanging on
But we're not moving on
Or standing still

I'm trying to read between the lines
You've got me going out of my mind

..Okay, so i was on Facebook when this song came playing on my iPod and i was like, OMG! this is SO happening to me! and the confusion is killing me. Tell me what you freakin want, man!

i am sick and tired of figuring you out.

Doulos

Today after lunch, i went to the Doulos ship that is town from October 12 (they arrived yesterday) until the 26th. There were so many people on the ship and it was SO hot, i sweat like a pig just now.

There were many things to look at, besides books. A cultural display was going on but i couldn't really get a good look at each booth coz it was too crowded and i felt suffocated.

At the books area, i think kids really will really be happy in there coz there were abundant of kiddie books. What i really wanted was a study Bible, and there were some that caught my interest but i didnt end up buying it coz it was either in a King James Version (KJV) or New King James Version (NKJV), which in my opinion is quite hard to understand. What i specifically wanted was a study Bible in a New International Version (NIV) but there weren't any so i ended up buying a Dictionary/Thesaurus/Atlast book hahaha. But i think it was worth my Rm24.00..it's thick, about 7cm and the maps are in full color. I also bought some religious CDs - Greg Long, Talley Trio, and The Martins.

It was kinda fun going to Doulos again with my family after a long time. The last time i was on the ship with them was probably more than 10 years ago.. i was still a little kid and what i remember was that i will only get myself those sticker books. When i saw sticker books on the rack just now, it kinda brought back some kiddie memories :-)

Hey, look at the sun

The sun looked pretty weird yesterday. I received an sms from a friend of mine telling me to look at the sun so i ran out of the house and stared at the sky. And then i saw it...

I took these using my digicam


..and these using my phonecam

Does this mean anything? Is this a sign of something's gonna happen??

I guess we just have to wait and see.
