Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye, today I helped out in Children's Church. Hmmm... a new experience I guess. Plenty of cute, rowdy, and weird kids who pointed at me and laugh -.-. Geez. Hectic day though.
Met up with Karnex in the morning to have breakfast before meeting the rest (including a back-from-China Jessica) to help out. And I wore red, aye! I was positioned along with some others to guide kids on an alternative route, then after shifted to another position to make sure kids don't run onto the road, then later on to make sure they don't climb and jump on walls (???). Some kids were cute, they were really just sweet. Others ran like Speedy Gonzales. Others were just walking past and when I said "Welcome to City Harvest Church" they'd point at me and laugh. HUH?!
Later on I had to help move chairs for the Children's Church service, but I didn't get to watch =/, so we just hung out at the cafe till it was time to redeploy us. Not much, except white shirt boy kept hitting on someone. Zzz. Totally annoyed me. No details here. Ahem.
Later on I had to stay back and move the chairs back, and more than that, by helping out a bit more for the JAMs church. Aye, super tiring. But somehow you feel very satisfying by accomplishing all that. Not easy mind you. Meanwhile during my tenure as labor (lol) I chatted with a guy who said I looked like a rocker 'cause of my chains and stuff. Well, I'm flattered, but he kinda assumed I wasn't in church for long. So I told him "I've been in church for 6 years. How about you?" Then he goes "11." and I'm like "Wow, since Hollywood Theatre?" And he's like "Way before that." Yikes. Eleven years. No kidding. I've got like 5 more years to reach that. Of course, I'm aiming towards my lifetime =).
Went to Jurong Point with my cellgroup after that to eat. Spoke a lot of topics, but highlight was probably my stupid promise to get married in 4 years. AYE, I need some prospects! And with people in white hitting on them, its not exactly easy! Nevermind if you didn't get that, just help me out and you'll have helped me fulfill my promise towards Gabriel. Heh. I'll probably hold some sign with the words "Available" beside me next time. I'll throw the reserved sign away =x.
Went back to church to attend the first Jurong service. It's been YEARS since I've had service in Jurong West. Certainly brings back memories, plus I still like the atmosphere. And comfy chairs. And those fold-away tables! The only thing I don't like (and still don't) is the lining up. I once sweat so much it soaked my pouch and my sermons in there all became black blotches. Anyhoo, the drama was a rehash, which surprised me. Almost identical drama to 3 years ago, except cut short a bit, with a few edits to some scenes. I still enjoyed it though, and the crucifixion, aye, still as heart wrenching as ever.
Later on, Jonathan and I remained behind to wait for my friends coming down. We went to the rooftop, where there was a buffet for the members. Since there were no seats, we just sat at the baptism pool in the rain -.-. Comfy, and it brought back memories, we pointed out what E145 first did as a cellgroup together here, where our first cellgroup picture was taken, what event, and even the clothings (every item, if you get my drift...). Once my friend Hoe Long came with his two friends, we went to attend the evening service, albeit late. Enjoyed it again, but we left early since they needed to go off. Had a great chat with them. If you don't know, Hoe Long's mom and my mom go way back, to primary or secondary school days. So one time they met up for a reunion and each brought their sons, and that's how we met, haha. Haven't seen him in three years, so it was great to catch up.
Went back home and cleaned my room for the first time since CNY. Zzz. Freaking messy and dusty. Quite a workout too. Well, on Easter Jesus rose from the dead, a new beginning. So I did that for my room too. Significance you know! HA!
Going to Expo service later on, aye. Hope the drama will be better.
