chapter 62. six to the two is getting better :)

I've been keeping to myself what I were doing these two months without sharing the details to people that asked me questions. I would mostly answer them that I am working at church, and that's it. End of story.

This school leaver programme I joined is called Life Engineering. What we actually do everyday is self moulding (both character building and living skills), enhancing our relationship with God, contributing in various community projects, and self identification to know what's God purpose in our lives. 

The first month were both physically and mentally hectic. I'm not used to the daily brain storming and the constant self reflection. Unlike school, where we have textbook and reference for direct guidance in learning, here it's all about paying attention to every word our teacher says and reflect them yourself. Not only that, life application of what we've learnt is also very important, for what I thought.

Project number two - Charity Car Wash. One down, three more to go!

We've even got nicknames for everyone. Excluding me haha! Ding! This is 胡椒人! It means Mrs. Pepper XD

One of the days after our field trip to 17th mile

A very long walk! (That's the first week ;p recently~ We're lucky now that we have cars to drove us around) *I've always wonder what it's like to be Homer Simpson! HAHA but nope I can't*

诗情画意~ Acting meh!

Steamboat - one of our lunch!

Reb's masterpiece - Haha I'm very grateful that four of us can cook! *Standard's not very high though. But food that can be eaten is already good enough!* You can't expect a lot from 17 -20 years old girl like us, right? HAHA

The socks Janice gave me that I've been refusing to wear around! Because it's to precious to do that to my long love U-Know :((( Hoping to have Niall Horan's Socks too! But if I really have one pair, I'll totally frame it!

Reading quite a lot this days. And so I'm keeping up with my wish, more visits to the library and book stores! :) A phrase that I love:

"We write to heighten our own awareness of life
We write to lure and enchant and console others
We write to serenade our lovers
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection. 
We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal
We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it
We write to teach ourselves to speak with others, to record the journey into the labyrinth
We write to expand our world when we feel strangled, or constricted, or lonely… 

When I don’t write, 
I feel my world shrinking. 
I feel I am in prison. 
I feel I lose my fire and my color. 
It should be a necessity, as the sea needs to heave, and I call it breathing."

-Anaïs Nin

After dying my hair before Chinese New Year, I dyed my hair again with Liese Ash Brown! But the result's not clear :((( Fyi, recently I'm in love with ashes colour but too bad mine ain't obvious!

And most recently, I went to Kenny Sia's Level-Up Fitness with Growing Heart's brothers and sisters! Never did I imagine things will happen this way and I could actually see Kenny Sia in person! (He's like travelling all around but, ohmy. There he is IN PERSON!) I always thought that I'll remain cool and calm when I meet someone well known and of course, I ADMIRE. (well duh since I'm a blogger of course there's people I REALLY REALLY look up on!) *I can't even dream of seeing Xia Xue in person!*

Shizz. After watching him with Janet Hsieh on Fun Asia, I suddenly felt a pang of guilt. Well am not going to the details but to be honest, when I was listening to him when he was trying to "hypnotize" us to imagine a perfect life so on so forth to calm ourself down, I was seriously fighting with the snickering and smirking by replacing them with frowns on my face despite having both of my eyes close the whole process. I'm not really fond of trying to imagine a perfect life, neither in thinking or persuading that that I have it all. I doesn't make sense in having it all and feeling calm at the same time. (For what I thought anyways. I'll honestly feel insecure when I really do have it all. Thieves, people that kiss your ass...etc.You know what I mean?) Even more stressed out.

Other thing that amused me. Only now I know he's not that tall and I can't really understand some of his English! Blurry but really, NO OFFENSE! 

Sonia, Tania's ten minute younger sister of Jayesslee is engaged! YAY! :)
