Dear beloveds,

I know that this is grossly overdue, yes. very overdue. But I just want to thank you guys for all that has happened. It has been an awesome journey. thinking back, God’s fingerprints were all over my journey thus far. So right now, let me just say out things that I never did at that night at Singapore Flyer.

Selene: Thanks for being such an awesome CGL. Really. You’re really the best. No need to compare with others, already the best. Being there, doing childish and fun things together, cursing chest hair at laselle, having lunch at TTSH during my preceptorship last year, smsing me, praying for me, laughing at the stupid things that have happened, goliath incidents, self-condemnation issues, being there and being the middle person between kf and me. Haha. You’re just awesome with your love for the people. thanks so much for sowing into my life. for the last 3 years of my life. and i really really thank God for you.

belinda: thanks for everything, from knowing that we were both from shps, to going to lighthouse before coming to ncc, to meeting u at the crusade camp, to bringing you for your first cg and see u fling the chicken chop across the table at selene. OMGosh. so funny! and who can forget the adventure camp. the most exciting camp of the century. we met that thing at some deserted road and held hands and walked so fast, we were faster than melody. and also, my pants dropping incident that we would always laugh about. for being so approachable that i could share about anything to you, including kf during the period of uncertainity and also complaining about chest hair. AND HM LAST YEAR WAS SO AWESOME. and your attempts to write down everyting in your journal so much so that you took so long and how we always rushed for the food at the buffet table. and our walks to science from the mpsh and dropping at yakun to eat 2 eggs 3 times a week till i gained back the weight i lost at fyp. thanks babe, for everything. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

helen LEE HOI MUN! HAHAHAHAHA. FLUSH IN JESUS NAME! HAHAHAHAHA. SO funny! now, no one to do stupid things with me anymore. thanks babe, for being read at ej. thanks babe, for understanding what was going through my heart during that time. thanks babe, for being such a bundle of joy in my life. you’re just so awesome. for organising healthy cycle trips at ecp so that i;d move my lazy bum to exercise. i rarely exercise nowadays. it’s just been awesome thus far with you in this journey in nus. and yes, woman of strength. ever so pretty and of course, transformed from glory to glory. HA! πŸ™‚ HELEN LEE HOI MUN! more stupid things to do together when you move up to gen rev ok. all the WAP photos and all the silly things! πŸ™‚

cclia: our journey hasnt ended yet. with all the PSS sessions. thanks for the lecture notes lent, for the awesome worship sessions that have never failed to wash off the dust from my feet after one whole week of studying. truly, God has used you to minister to me through your anointed worship leading. for being there to advice me when i’m going down the wrong path. remember our talk at outram park when you told me to guard my heart. haha. thanks babe πŸ™‚ i’ll never forget that day. many more PSS sessions to go. and kkh is just a shuttle bus away from TTSH! πŸ™‚ ahahaha. thanks babe, for being that instrument that God has used to bless me in so many ways. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

bennie: i thank God for you. u’re really someone that i like talking to. i just feel at ease whenever i talk to you. and i thank God for you being real with me. for sharing with me your feelings and your situations. know that i’ll always be around for you and that i’m a sms away. and if i ever do go over to guardian because they pay alot more, we’ll be colleagues! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ from being in the same group in sp1203 to being in the same cg must have been a Jesus thing. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ and it’s something that i am very thankful for. u’ve been a great blessing to me! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

alicia! I’ve never seen you dance except in those SOC rag dance vids that colin posted up. hahaha. one day yeah? thanks for being such a bubbly and nice person to talk to, with your contagious laughter. and thanks most of all, for bringing kf to cg. haha!

penny! u’ve been in the states for ONE year!!!! but it was great see-ing you on the webcam lah. still got one more year to go hur? i’ll see you in gen rev yeah? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

tb. DE MING, if that is how it is spelt. for the longest time ever, you were the only guy in the cg. but we prayed and God answered with more than enough guys. for always being that listening year. and yes. i know the troubles that you face with the first class honors hanging over there. but if God did it for me. you’re next! AMEN. i’ve very much been through the stress and self-effort cycle from young and its something that i am still learning. but know that God is faithful and God never short-changes anyone. Morever, we are His CHILDREN! as much as i would like my kids to prosper and do well in life, God wants the same for you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ thanks tb. for always being that listening earΒ  and for helping us to eat up the food!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

ome: OMEEEE!!!! hahaha. thanks for sharing about yr revelations with God with me. during the short talks that we have queu-ing up, or waiting for the rest to come during lunch devo. thanks for being yourself. and how it is that u were always so willing to help me with the mac issues, re-formatting my very very old desktop. my dad still remembers u to this day! haha. as the thai computer guy. he really liked you. thank God for being that blessing to my dad, so thatΒ  he knows that my church friends are not weird.

colin!!!!!! COLIN. jay chou. SORRRRY for pissing you off so many times. haha! but then again, where sin abounds, grace superabounds. as much as you’re probably the nicest guy i have ever seen so far, ok lah. all the guys in the cg are super nice. like ome, tb, you, jonah, sumitro and *ahem* kf, you’re really super nice for letting me pplay with yr DSLR! and for talking rubbish to on msn and for the sharings that were done. thanks for being such an awesome brother with your occasional random smses to share a bible verse with me, no matter how few. but i really thank God for your heart for the people. your love for spreading the gospel has made me ashamed. and yes. i thank God for placing you in my life.

sumitro! haha! i will NEVER forget how u took that plate of garlic/ginger and thought that it was rice at the porridge buffet at suntec convention centre. that was really hilarious. but i thank God that you reminded me of myself, that when u share about ur experiences at cg, it’s something that i relate to. thanks sumitro! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ for being real and being friendly to me when i was a total meanie when i first came in.

jonah. MR COMMANDO. OMG. thank God you dont get angry at my commando questions. yes, as stupid as they are, you are the FIRST commando friend that i have. i dont have that many male friends lah. u’re also one of the guys in my nice guys list. HAHAHA. i stratfied people in my brain ok. shhhh. it’s a secret. HAHAH! no lah. just kidding. thanks for helping me thus far with the surprises that i’d wanted to make. thanks jonah πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

and last but not least,

kf: thank God that you got saved in NCC. got transformed from a buaya to someone who is going to be even more awesome than my fav worship leader. thanks for being there for me, during my dark days in december when i was alone in sch doing my fyp with Jesus and stinking chest hair. thanks kf. for everything. for going to service with me. for enduring my childish ways and my attempts to ask you to wear the armpit pad. haha. i’ll tell you more the next time we meet πŸ™‚

thanks lovelies, for everything that you guys have ever done. for letting God use you to impact my life and moulded me into who i am today. and i am indeed thankful to Jesus for placing you guys in my life during those 3 years in NUS. i’ll miss you guys now that i dont even see you guys anymore!!!!!

Jesus’s beloved,
