Faithful in the little :D

Hey guys, haven't been updating my blog cause I had a busy week, but I'll try to do so more often :D

We met a Captain today to discuss about our postings. Bryan and I will be posted to do the NYP website! :D

Weiren has been sharing to us about being faithful in the little things, and I decided to do my best to do the seemingly insignificant things (e.g. clean my table and room, maintain personal hygiene and dressing), and things entrusted to me.

I started going to the gym, spent a whole day tidying up my table, make my bed every morning etc. It wasn't easy, and there are some things I still can improve, but at least I made the decision to do it :)

Honestly, it was rather stressful - I get stressed over the smallest things. That's might be because I'm a perfectionist, but I'd like to see it as God expanding my capacity :D Nevertheless, it was like "Woohoo" after doing these things, especially cleaning up my table XD

Our service weekend attendance shot up to 38 this week!!! I believe it's because we all decided to be faithful in the little things. Jesus says that if we are faithful in the what is least, we will also be faithful in much, so He can entrust us with growth!

Let's continue to be meticulously faithful, and believe God for 50 members!

Gonna work on NDP '10 Website! :D

Hey all! I've been told that I will be working with Nigel, Glenn and Justin on websites for NDP!!! If God willing, I'll be posted out of Sungei Gedong!!! When that day arrives, I will sing "Hallelujah..."

That would mean no more waking up so early :)

Army life is kinda fun, despite the many boring hours of doing nothing. I guess we just make up fun stuff to do and keep ourselves occupied haha :X

Last week, we had a "Karaoke" session! Some of us were supposed to set up the sound system for the hall, as there was supposed to be a lecture or presentation. Eventually, no one turned up, so we plugged in Aloysious mp3 to the hall's sound system, and had our mini karaoke session! Yea baby!

We just discovered Amos' talents! He's an awesome music composer- he used Garage Band to create musical pieces in a few hours! Pretty cool stuff! Maybe can get him to compose game music for us next time :D

Bryan and I are thinking of making games for the iPhone, and consequentially for the iPod Touch as well. I'm asking God for an iPod Touch to develop the game, and to keep myself entertained with music while in the confines of camp. Hope you caught the hint ;)

Thanks for reading! :D

Eventful day at NS

Disclaimer: "Eventful" is a relative term here, seeing that nothing much has happened since I enlisted.
Something very funny happened today! Bryan had a medical appointment out of camp today, but he did not know what to do to get out of camp "legally".

Thus he talked to our CSM, "Sir, I have a medical appointment at 3pm today, but I do not know what are the official procedures to go for my appointment."

Our CSM replied, "Official procedures? The official procedures is to go to the edge, jump off and shout 'MEDICAL!'"
Then he walked off.

LOL!!! I was like laughing the whole day about the incident XD
Bryan wasn't too happy though; he felt that the CSM should have at least answered his question after the joke. I guess he's kinda right, even though the incident was so funny :P

No matter, Bryan got his answer from another dude.

Since Bryan was released from camp early, we couldn't get a free car ride back :(
Thank God for Amos! He wanted to take a cab back home at AMK, and he offered to take us along! Lt William and I wanted to pay part of the cab, but he politely refused! :D

Anyway, I suspect that we NDP clerks may be given assignments to do soon, since they brought in 2 iMacs today. Well, it would be better than sitting all day and doing nothing. Furthermore, 'now is the for us to shine...'

That's all! Until next time! :D
