to be honest, Christmas is not my favourite day of the year. people who do not know the real meaning of Christmas use the celebration for a wrong purpose and to be happy and merry.
People make fun of carols and people who have no idea what carols are about sing carols.
BUT its one of the most important day in the year as our saviour Jesus Christ was born on this day.
The True Meaning Of Christmas
Christmas is a time of God showing His great love for us. It can be a time of healing and renewing strength. You see, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child.
Luke 2: 4-19 says:
"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about." So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart."
so Why did He come? Why did God send His son to this sometimes cruel and hard world? He sent Jesus to us so that one day, He would grow up to become a very important part of history. His story (history) is one of truth, love, and hope. It brought salvation to all of us. Without Jesus, we would all die in our sins.
Jesus was born so one day the price could be paid for the things we have done that are wrong.
The Bible says that all have sinned. We are all born with a sin nature. We do things that do not please God. Through the sins of Adam and Eve, we have all inherited that sin nature. We need to have that removed. The only way is through Jesus. Jesus came so He could die on the cross for ALL of our sins. If we believe that Jesus died for our sins, we can ask Him to come into our hearts and forgive us. Then, we are clean and made whole. We can know that heaven is a place where we can go to when this life is over.
Now, this is where the post becomes the Christmas spoiler!
ive gather facts from over the net and exposed this commercialized day this so called christmas.
if you do not know, there are many versions of who is santa clause really...but definitely not the fat dude who lives in Christmas pole.
The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to the those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.
Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. The prisons were so full of bishops, priests, and deacons, there was no room for the real criminals—murderers, thieves and robbers. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church, where a unique relic, called manna, formed in his grave. This liquid substance, said to have healing powers, fostered the growth of devotion to Nicholas. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th (December 19 on the Julian Calendar).
Through the centuries many stories and legends have been told of St. Nicholas' life and deeds. These accounts help us understand his extraordinary character and why he is so beloved and revered as protector and helper of those in need.
One story tells of a poor man with three daughters. In those days a young woman's father had to offer prospective husbands something of value—a dowry. The larger the dowry, the better the chance that a young woman would find a good husband. Without a dowry, a woman was unlikely to marry. This poor man's daughters, without dowries, were therefore destined to be sold into slavery.
Mysteriously, on three different occasions, a bag of gold appeared in their home-providing the needed dowries. The bags of gold, tossed through an open window, are said to have landed in stockings or shoes left before the fire to dry. This led to the custom of children hanging stockings or putting out shoes, eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nicholas. Sometimes the story is told with gold balls instead of bags of gold. That is why three gold balls, sometimes represented as oranges, are one of the symbols for St. Nicholas. And so St. Nicholas is a gift-giver.
The Christmas tree custom gradually became popular in other parts of Europe. In England Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria made Christmas trees fashionable by decorating the first English Christmas tree at Windsor castle with candles and a variety of sweets, fruits and gingerbread in 1841. Of course, soon other wealthy English families followed suit, using all kinds of extravagant items as decorations. Charles Dickens described such a tree as being covered with dolls, miniature furniture, tiny musical instruments, costume jewelry, toy guns and swords, fruit and candy, in the 1850s.
Most of the 19th century Americans found Christmas trees an oddity. The first record of one being on display was in the 1830s by the German settlers of Pennsylvania. They put one on show to raise money for a local church. In 1851 a tree was set up outside of a church. The people of the parish thought it such an outrage and a return to paganism and asked the minister to take it down.
By the 1890s Christmas ornaments were arriving from Germany and Christmas tree popularity was on the rise around the U.S. It was noted that Europeans used small trees about four feet in height, while Americans liked their Christmas to reach from floor to ceiling.
The early 20th century saw Americans decorating their trees mainly with homemade ornaments, while the German-American sect continued to use apples, nuts, and marzipan cookies. Popcorn joined in after being dyed bright colors and interlaced with berries and nuts.
Over time, Scandinavian winter festivals that later become associated with Christmas celebrated the exploits of the Norse God.
Using a costume made of goat skin and donning a manufactured goat head two men would pranced about as a goat, with some times having a third individual riding them. Such raucous holiday displays displeased Christian authorities struggling to control pagan winter rituals. Nevertheless, the celebration of the goat and his unpredictable behavior proved to be a popular and lasting element of the season.
The role of the goat, as in most roles associated with Christmas, has evolved at different times and has been recognized in different ways in different places. In Sweden, where the goat is a symbol of the season, he became a gift bringer in the tradition of Santa Claus during the 18th century. Though this fad eventually died out, the goat continued to have seasonal influence in places such as Denmark and Finland as an icon who would frighten small children and warn them to behave.
In Norway, children and adults to this day will roam through their neighborhoods entertaining neighbors with songs in exchange for treats. Many families or groups of revelers will bring a goat with them or dress as a goat in playful remembrance of the God of Thunder.
HERE COMES THE BEST PART!
There's a strong and practical reason why Jesus might not have been born around Christmas because it was winter then, but in the spring or the autumn! It can get very cold in the winter and it's unlikely that the shepherds would have been keeping sheep out on the hills (as those hills can get quite a lot of snow sometimes!). And sheep eating on snowy grass? LOL!

- it has the slide to unlock feature, not so sensitive and friendly touch screen and even has the iphone interface.
- the music player even looks like the real thing just that it does not have the album flow feature.
- the speaker on the lowest volume is the loudest volume for a iphone or itouch.
- the design is almost perfectly the same and maybe just the material and the weight is the difference.
- WIFI DEVICE FOR ONLY AT RM255. NO JOKE. WIFI INCLUDED. (i even tested it but since there was no access point so i couldnt really test the wifi feature).
- JAVA WAS AVAILABLE. IT COULD EVEN RUN OPERA MINI 5 BETA THAT IM CURRENTLY USING ON MY NOKIA E63.
- and some models you see online has the tv feature but that's nothing to brag about.

now...a interesting article to read about below...
Dark unsightly circles around the eyes can leave you looking ill, haggard and depressed. While there can be many causes for dark eye circles, the upshot is that you end up looking older than you probably are. Look for ways to camouflage the dark under eye circles. Find out simple home remedies to reduce the dark under eye circles and add sparkle to your eyes.
Dark Eye Circle
The skin below our eyes is thin and is not as well endowed with oil glands as the rest of the body. Consequently as we age, the skin gets dry and wrinkled. As a result, the veins in the lower eye area appear more prominent. This results in dark circles under the eyes. There are many factors that lead to dark circles.
Heredity – Dark under eye circles are often an inherited trait. Those who are prone to allergies or itchy skin condition are susceptible to dark circles since inflammation and rubbing of eyes can thicken and darken the skin around them. Some food allergies can also cause the area under the eyes to appear darker. Excess folds of skin under the eyes will also make dark circles more pronounced.
Lack of Sleep – Lack of sleep and fatigue can cause the skin to grow wan and pale. This makes blood vessels under the eyes to appear more visible and dark. The paleness that occurs with fatigue, a cold or sinus infection or during menstruation or pregnancy may accentuate the circles under the eyes. Partying all night and smoking can play havoc with your skin and result in dark eye circles.
Bone Structure – Deep set eyes may have a tendency to develop dark shadows under them. In fair-skinned persons, dark eyes become more obvious.
Sun Exposure – Increased exposure to the sun can draw pigmentation the skin’s surface and create dark circles.
Medication – Drugs that cause blood vessels to dilate may result in darkening circles around the eyes.
Nutrition – Dark circle around the eyes can be the result of poor nutrition.
Hormonal Changes – Since the skin undergoes changes during pregnancy and menstruation, you may notice darkening of the circles under the eyes.
Combat Dark Eye Circles
Combat dark circles under your eyes with simple tips:
1. Drink nearly 10 glasses of water everyday
2. Ensure that you get good rest and adequate sleep
3. Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A.
4. Consume a nutritionally balanced diet

A warning from one consumer to another:
DO NOT SIGN UP TO MAXIS BROADBAND!
If you love your kids, don’t let them use Maxis broadband.
Kids who surf slower, learn slower and with the added pressure from having an unstable internet connection and constant disconnection could lead them to having suicidal tendencies at such a young age.

talking about grand prize...i won 2 raffles in Rogue Vampires last week. not one but two...WOOT!
the word is also now very commercialised by the P1 Wimax advertisement until the point where anything that regards cutting someone will surely come up with the phrase 'sudah potong ah'?
anyways, i am at home now and just returned from the bbq party which i had with my classmates.
almost everything went well...
-Zi Yang advance birthday suprise went well (although can see that he suspected something was on when the guys went to hold him back).
-Everyone went there and went home safely.
-Food was sufficient until we wasted some by disposing some away (Lung Wang did it...not me).
-Nobody ffk and came.
-everyone had a great time...i think.
Now there were also many potong moments that occurred.
-Zi Yang's Matrix's brake tak makan.
-Yuet Xin's Wira's clutch tak makan also.
-Shyne our big sister and Yun Juan (Patrick's leg) didnt join us because of their boyfriends.
-Not enough of charcoal, went out to buy them, then had extra in the end.
-Brother not cooperating.
-Dumb and UNfriendly guards.
-Cannot play by the pool.
-Went out for the second time to guide Zi Houh and Matt home.
-The GIRLS FFK-ed me,
Now i would like to elaborate the part where the girls ffk-ed me,
i will upload the pictures as soon as i gather all the nice pictures that were taken.
if you went through the whole post, YOURE THE MAN or WOMAN. Cause you had the patience and determination to complete reading my useless rants and displeasures. LOL
But im fine. Its okay. Just dont ffk me especially on such big things(quite big i suppose).
Lessons i learnt tonight are:
-Girls could change their mind just like that(saying this through many past experiences)
-Chris is a good fire started
-Shyne is quite loyal after all. LOL
-DO NOT FFK PEOPLE. Could be very hurting.

cool name for an owl?
i will try to accumulate and get more pictures and upload it
Nov 7, 2009
good news for you guys
i have a place for you guys in my cousin's newly bought condo...
its empty and might smell like paint though...
but if you guys dint mind i can arrange something for you guys to sleep on...
for further information contact me at 012-comefindme... :)
after i woke up i felt the urge to go walk around...having this feeling i would normally cycle around the hostel or just walk around my block...the owner of the bicycle was not around so i took the option of walking around.
i walked around till i reach my window. i noticed that there were a lot of bird dropings outside my window. only my window.
then only i realise that something was moving and is alive.
It was a baby owl.
i called my friend which then he took it to his room and i manage to get a few pictures.
(now due to whatever reasons, i cannot upload the pictures. i will try to upload it as soon as possible.)
We decided to put it back up the tree which was where it has suppose to have fallen from we guess. The lowest reachable nest-hole-sort-of-thing is like 3m high. The first attempt i climbed up with my friends' assistant and left the owl there. It was up there and it looked fine but it fell down not long after that. So i took it and put it in a container and leave it in my friend's room. Went to class, then ffk michelle and david.
At around 7pm, my tallest friend who also have a dlsr came back, took some shots, and put it up again for the second time.
The owl was fine for the night and stayed up on the tree the whole night.
Yesterday morning, it was on the ground again. We gave up and just left the thing there...
theres nothing we can do about it...the odds of the owl are only die of hunger, eaten by cats, drown by the rain, eaten by other animals or died of coldness only.
It should still be alive now but im not sure...if you want to look for it you can try going to J block and the window outside of G008. Its somewhere under the tree.

this is the day that i've been waiting for the whole month. The All-American Rejects concert is today and Halloween day is on in Rogue Vampires. Its' the most anticipated event in the game ad obviously its because we're vampires and we get to roam freely with the mortals without them knowing that we're vampires.
Have a happy day ahead.

-i will not do good on monday
Oct 28, 2009
well personally i do not think so. I know this might sound weird but i realise that removing oil when washing dishes with icy cold water is far more effective than using hot water. best part is it does not burn your hands.

Time: should be Around 6pm (tentative)
Venue: College Swimming Pool, Sports Complex
Location map: http://www.tarc.edu.my/ctour/ctourm2.htm (number 35)
The only things we are currently doing are fellowship, swimming, and more fellowship.
A activity organised to relieve stress and to fellowship. And i heard it from errol that he will straight go swimming after floorball. Now that's refreshing.
What to bring?
towel, shampoo if needed, extra garments, Swimming Attire (duh) and googles if needed.
Where do we go after swimming?
What happens if it rains?
We will look at the condition, decide and inform the people who confirm are going.
To know more you can approach David Ng at 016-askhimyourself, Michelle Tan at 017-nottelling or Ee Rick(me) at 012-comefindme :)
now did i leave out anything or anyone? scheduled
All the coursework and test dates are also already given out...
Had been very lazy, distracted, busy, tired, exicited, broke and boring these 2 weeks. Dont ask me why...
Anyway, just came back from charis and realised that many of my floormates are still awake (dota-ing LAN, FIFA 10-ing while ONE is 'studying').
Had hostel cg earlier which ended at 10.30pm and four of us stayed back, went to charis, managed to get daniel along and went to the mamak. Daniel, Michelle, Shaun, Carmen and me then went back to charis for a movie marathon. We watched Pink Panther 2 and then followed by Drag Me to hell. DMTHell was very fake...and funny. Daniel and i became the spoilers and tried to guess what would happened next and laughed when we were suppose to 'freak out'. It was more of a cheating-and-convincing-myself-to-be-brave sort of thing to me. ***and your scaring thing not working michelle :)
Shaun slept halfway of the second movie and we had to wake him up to get us going Lol.
Then we the hostelians walked back and star gazed on the way and reach the hostel at 4+. The reason i went for this is because my class is at @pm :P
Best part is my phone's battery died.
