Thursday, December 19, 2013 // 4 commentsSo after reading Kim's blog, I finally decided to blog about my life again lol. I was really lazy over the past few months to keep this blog alive, so forgive me please.
School ended on November 15 and I went for Megan Nicole's concert that evening. It was a memorable experience because not only did I get to see her perform live, but I got to meet her as well! I dragged my good friend Liz along with me to attend this concert, and we ended up buying the meet-and-greet passes as well haha. I approached her with a hug and I was really awestruck to see her up close! She is beyond flawless and is extremely beautiful! Apart from her, I also got to meet her really cute drummer and sister! It was a blissful and amazing night. :-)
On November 17 I participated in Singapore's Run for Hope marathon. Even though I was so enthusiastic to run when I registered, I was reluctant to finish the 10km run the day before because I was having a sore throat and was worried that it would get worse. Thankfully I managed to finish running the very very long 10km in 1 hour 20 minutes! #achievementunlocked haha, it may not be a good timing but I'm satisfied with it because it was my first marathon and I'm just glad it was under 2 hours lol.
The next week, my class and I volunteered for The Soup Kitchen. It's a non-governmental organisation that prepares and serves food for the needy people. I learnt a lot in these 5 days, from chopping vegetables to frying/peeling tons of eggs to packing food and even sending these food to them! I still remember the happy faces the elderly gave us when they saw our van approaching their block. It was definitely a meaningful experience. :-) I would love to go back again someday!
After a hectic week I went back to Malaysia for a week and headed to Hong Kong and Macau after that!
Hong Kong is a small place with cooling weather, but my skin couldn't really adapt to it. It was too dry. :-(
I preferred Macau because the hotel rooms were way more spacious and the Portuguese egg tarts! Omg I really loved eating them, I wish we could bring them back here but it's not allowed. :-(
After I came back from Hong Kong, I had only two days of rest before heading to my church's Youth Camp 2013. I came down with a cold once I reached Singapore so I couldn't enjoy myself to the fullest in the first two days. I even had to miss the second day to rest at home. :/
So throughout these four days, we played an Angel-Mortal activity. Each person is given a mortal to take of, so that means each one of us has an angel who will take care of us. When I say "take care", I mean by sending letters of encouragement or small gifts like sweets to your mortal.
I gotta admit, at first I was pretty bummed that I was the oldest member in my team. Like really, even my team leader was younger than me. My partner for every activity was a 13 year old girl lol, can you imagine how awkward and out of place I felt? So naturally I expected my angel to be someone younger than me, and I didn't expect my angel to send me gifts/notes everyday. To my surprise, he did way more than what I expected. I was really touched by his small yet very sweet notes and really thankful that God made me his mortal. :')
We were all supposed to reveal ourselves on the last day of camp, and when he approached me I got the shock of my life. He was the same age as me and he's entering NS next year! I was really shocked and because of it I think it made our meeting awkward lol.
It was my first time joining a church camp and I'm really glad I had fun! Not to forget the many friendships forged throughout the four days. I'm very blessed to be in an awesome CG and team!I can't wait for many more church events in the future! :-)
Back on a more personal note, I finally managed to wear contacts! Woohooooooooo it took me like 40 minutes at my first try hahahaha I'm so glad I could do it! :D
Oh wow this is a long post, hope you were entertained.
