I received my parcel of “Assorted Gifts” (dried instant noodles + adapter) yesterday, and was I thrilled to find the book Simply This~Simply His.
It all began when JZ announced the book launch on his blog. It would have been my greatest pleasure to attend the launch had it not for me being ‘quite far away’ from the venue. I asked if JZ could save a copy of the book for me, and not only did JZ agree, he was kind enough to offer sending the book to me that I may read it in the Swiss landscapes!
I have yet to really read the book. B.A. life has been hectic to say the least and lately there’s so much on my mind that I’m almost drowning in thought. I believe that Simply This~Simply His would be a timely reminder of where I stand in Christ in the midst of all these, and I consider myself Simply Blessed to be the first in Switzerland to read it!

If it’s NOT okay, it’s NOT the end.
I believe this to be true, particularly in the midst of circumstances.
I came across news about a dear Pastor’s family member who was killed while wanting to inspect and collect the palm oil fruits at a plantation in Sabah. According to news reports he was killed by a group of suspected illegal immigrants ‘guarding’ the plantation. Investigations are underway.
It’s sad and disheartening but I believe its not the end. Daddy God’s protection and blessings will see Pastor Richard and his family through these hard times. It’s not gonna be over until Jesus is glorified.
Quoting from JZ’s post
She replied, “Wait, my daughter, until you learn how the matter turns out, for the man will not rest but will settle the matter today.” Ruth 3:18
“Sit still. And see my salvation.”
I pray that Pastor Richard and family will find peace and comfort in Jesus, knowing that He will not rest until the matter is settled.

23 more weeks of BA to go and I’m already feeling like I don’t have enough time. 6 modules to be delivered and assessed in 18 weeks with a dissertation to be completed in 24 weeks.
Welcome to the crash course in BA Hospitality & Events.
While I’m prepared to work much harder than I did the previous semesters, I find it difficult to work towards ‘the goal’ – achieving 1st class honours.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5 (NLT)
I believe that everything I have achieved thus far is from God, without Him all my hardwork and efforts amount to nothing. It is no different this semester. Daddy God has proven Himself faithful time and time again, with my expectations being the only limitations to His blessings. I never aimed for the highest, still He blesses me with more than I asked for.
Why then do I still find it difficult to aim for the highest?
Obtaining a 1st class honours is not difficult to God, but it is to me. Again I find myself trusting in self effort rather than the finished work. I would love to proclaim here and now that I will achieve 1st class honours by His grace, but it would not be from a shalom spirit.
Diligence and determination could only bring me so far. It is by the Finished Work that I soar.
More than anything else I want to see an end to myself, where I am no longer king over my life but You are. No matter what I become or what I achieve, I want it all to shout Your praise.
“For apart from You I can do nothing”
The next semester starts tomorrow, cant wait!
Its 164 days and counting to ‘Makanfest’ – my unofficial makan trip, eating whatever I find, wherever I am.
In the meantime I’ve been enjoying my new, larger room complete with (hopeless) Wi-fi and telephone all by myself for the past 5 days. I love the solitude. The roommate isn’t here yet and I’m wishing for a ghost as a roommate. At least it’s not gonna bother me.
Anyway some shots of The Room:
Thanks mom & dad for the upgrade that didn’t come cheap and thank Daddy God for the unusually large room (its a corner room).
Your goodness, your mercies shall follow me all my B.A. days and beyond!
