dare you to move

guess everybody has heard this song...but hey it has some awesome lyrics:

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before
Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
Tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be
Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before

Life....O life.....

Life is good. Oh yes indeed it is. Totally awesome and rocking.

My absence from the blog for sometime has been due to this flippin wicked game called Sims 2. It has kept me busy for sometime, exchanging violence and killing of Counterstrike for the peaceful, family building simulation of the Sims 2. Very nice game. Note of warning though, don't start cause u'll get addicted.

But anyways me and my friend were chit chatting that day and he said "My life is becoming meaningless". So I asked him what he meant by that and he said it was the same old rountine stuff, wake up, go class, come back from class, eat, chill out, sleep. Repeat process day after day. And mind you this isn't coming from some slacker numero, but from a guy who one of the most intelligent people i've met. So it got me wondering, if my friend, who by far is intellectually more supreme than the average Ah Beng(or Ah Lian) out there and the No 1 Mr Nice Guy you'll ever meet, finds life meaningless, how many others out there would feel the same too(for those who actually stop to think about it)?

So where's the meaning in our lives..? Success? Awesome grades, awesome job, fantastic pay, a social life that rocks, friends who'd stick by you no matter what, girlfriend, boyfriend, money, good family, your dreams coming true blah blah...... do you find it there? Or is it found in something deeper?

Think about it.

How CS can ruin your life

How computer games can ruin your life(notably CS with a LAN connection):

  1. You forget to eat or drink.
  2. You screw up your biological clock staying up killing your friends .
  3. You end up feeling not too happy about friends who are "campers" .
  4. Your friends and yourself go through periods of self denial screaming "NO MORE!!!NO MORE CS!!!" but promptly end up playing again that very night for 4 hours straight-this one is credited to alvin
  5. You forget to pangsai(ie take a crap) and end up constipated.
  6. You wreck your optical mouse smashing it repeatedly.
  7. You have no life on Friday nights. Or on the weekends either. Wait, we played CS throughout the entire week didnt we, guys?
  8. Every other moment not playing CS is spend either discussing strategies, complaining about campers, or once again denying that you will ever play CS again.
  9. You play other games in the vain hope of ending the CS addiction, but end up playing both games anyway and thus destroying all social life.
  10. You end up typing lame blogs about the evils of CS.

That's why you shouldnt play CS, boys and girls. Be a shin fei.

Oh btw some one said i look silly in that picture. oh well.....heheh...i'd put sillier ones if i could.

edit- 1 more point i remembered when i woke up this morning:
11. Your peaceful dreams suddenly end up in crazy gun fights among terrorists and cts....

Man this is bad.

american history x

Just came off from watching this movie called "American History X". Talks about this white american guy who's got problems with ppl who are not white(ie he's a racist) and how stuff happened to him causing him to change for good. Its a fantastic movie. One of the best movies i've ever seen. A recommended must watch for every one. Very touching movie.
Finally took time to do-up my blog a bit, hyperlinking and all that, as you can see.
And by the way, here's a little something to think about:

"When I'm feeling love and happy
When I'm feeling all alone
When I'm failing to remember
All the love that I've been shown
Every single beat of my heart
Is another new place to start
To know

This is a moment made for worshipping
Cause this is a moment I'm alive
And this is a moment I was made to sing
A song of living sacrifice
For every moment that I live and breathe
This is a moment made for worshipping

From the rising of the sun
To the setting the sun
The name of the Lord is worthy to be praised "

Lyrics by Steven Curtis Chapman.From the album "All About Love"

"To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Phillipians 4:20

too lazy to do this properly

I'm too lazy too get my blog set up properly. At the moment, its only linked to two of my friends here in city university, and that was also because of experimenting on html text and all that. i guess i'll just leave my blog in its sad case for the moment.
Today's message in church was good. Topic was on praise and worship and why we do our jumping, screaming, hand lifting and all those during service. So WHY???? Why then do we do it?
As the pastor pointed out, its pretty normal for ppl to jump to the beat in a U2 concert, normal to life your hands up and wave it during a Robbie Williams show, normal to clap your hands off when Tina Turner comes on stage(who the heck is she anyway???), or jumped up like a madman screaming "YEEEAAAAAHHHHHHHHH" when your favourite football team scores a goal. But then all of a sudden its weird when people in church do it. Point is, its a natural human response. Period. Thats how we are made. Its like how when you hear a noise behind you your head turns to that direction. So why not then jump to a beat and sing your heart out during praise and worship and give a loud shout of acknowledgement that God is good?
But more importantly about the message was what praise and worship is about. Well, basically praise is a way of saying and declaring out loud "God You are good" and about all of the good and awesome things He has done for us, and also a decision we make to praise God in spite of sucky circumstances, and through that, paving a way to invite His presence to where we are. And we worship God not to appease God. The pastor said something that made me think a little.
"We become what we worship"
And that is why God wants us to worship Him. He wants us to be more like Him. And that is why He will not have us worship other things or people or whatever. He wants the best for us.
Amazing eh? What a cool and awesome God we have....

Now i've gotta get back to my vacumming. Maybe properly set up my blog. Maybe......

Note: This is just a statement of my views and what I believe in. No insult or offense intended to those of other religions and beliefs. My apoligies if it offended you, do tell me and i will remove this post. Not that anybody reads this anyway...haha

alright lets try to do this properly

hmm...exams are over. just over in fact. Now that we've got that out of the way., i can actually try to set this dang blog up decently. firstly,i 've gotta figure out how to link this to other blogs, then upload some pics, and more importantly, do some decent blogging.
i've still yet to decide on how i want my blog to be like. should it be one where i pour out my heart and deep feelings into, or should it just one of those typical nonsense ramblings that i do. quite a dilemma. i think i'll prolly end up doing both. that is if my interest in blogging sustains.
so i shall set about it now, while the interest is there
adios and wish me the best
