.... Pre-CNY Mood ...

Suddenly early this week, I was attacked by emo-mode ... I suddenly missed my friends that I deliberately created memories with last CNY .... Pris, Li and I suddenly decided to go down Chinatown to have a break from our stressful schedule (think we were jammed pack with magazine stuff at that time) ... then, suddenly Tu wanted to follow us ... but he could not make it the last minute ... but he was so sweet to walk (rather, he jumped, hopped, skipped and screamed all the way down) us down TTC slope to and made sure that we safely got into a cab. It must have been a Wed, after community lunch cos we managed to take photos with Sam and Susanto in dining hall .. all of us, especially Tu and Sam had panda eyes ...


When we reached Chinatown, the 3 of us had great time just walking around, taking photos ... Pris bought bak-wa and egg tarts for her parents and family .... Li had a bird pooed on her hair while we were busy posing for a shot .. I went all crazy clicking my camera away and when I wanted to take a nice shot ... Li .... kept asking me to stretch my neck to make sure I am "in" the pix ... ?? I ended up having "camel necked" photos ... those were the days ...


So, yesterday I went into Spore to re-live the sweet memory ... Pris was sweet .. she took the afternoon off for me. Picked her up from Yishun and we parked at Zion St as I was still not too sure of the road ... and was trying to avoid ERP ... anyway ... I clicked my camera this time .. Li asked ... why all food pix ... no people ...

Just felt that yesterday's experience was entirely different from last year. Even the mood, feeling and decos were different. Chinatown was not as packed as last year, there were less decos and flowers this year ...


The precious reminder is .... sweet memories are to be created ... we have to be deliberate in creating special moments so that went the season or time is over, there will be sweet memories and photos to keep us company and treasure. Next, what is gone is gone ... time and season will pass .. its very difficult to re-live the past ... so, let's forget what's behind, and press forward towards the heavenward call the Christ has given us! (Phil 3: 13b - 14.) " ..... But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."


Finally, I thank God for every person that He had made my path-cross ... though we may be apart, I know in my heart that there were moments that was ceated that will bring a smile on our faces as we recall God given moments we had in our lives .. the fun, the fellowship ... the laughter .. the times we prayed and supported one another ... the tears and struggles but through it all ... He had blessed us .. with one another somewhere along our journey here ...



To all the friends that God brought into my life : Blessed Lunar New Year!
Thank you for your fellowship & partnership ....
