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

About time I updated. People have just been pissing me off the last few days. Seriously. Immature, or retarded, they're the things I have the least tolerance for. And I've been bombarded all over. I mean, seriously, I'm surprised people can be so stupid! And unfortunately, some are friends too! What the hell? Yeah, sure, no one's perfect, but to be able to hide your immaturity so well or your retardness (or maybe both) so well makes me amazed. Aiks. Not to mention the level that it reaches. Geez!
Nevermind... considering I'm covering up quite a lot of stuff... expect a long post! Friends night 2 Fridays ago was a great time. It's hard to describe it. Just imagine a normal church service crowd, except everyone's standing, and there's group games plus performances and event a talentime for some of the audience members. And Ruz was one of the chosen! Heh, he got 3rd out of the 5 chosen. He did his fire dancing with my chains. My old one I gave him and the new one I'm using now. So I had like 600 people watching what I wear spinning around. Lmao?
There were also 2 free iPod nanos given away, and I didn't get one. Sobs! Ervina managed to get 10 free hotdogs -.-, so yeah, roflol@her. There were also several segments talking about friendships and the such built in church, and a few testimonies given by members. It really helped build the atmosphere of friendship in there. Yeaps. Great time.
Service for the last 2 weeks was also good. Pastor Kevin finally ended the series of "Now That We Have Grown", the last message about flexibility in leadership. Hmmm... that struck a chord against my usual "I don't wanna be a leader" thinking of course. Also, I remember Issey once said something; "If you don't want to lead and be a leader, what's the point of rising up?" That's pretty hard to argue against, if you think through carefully. I just want to rise up to serve more? Well, the ultimate servicing is in leadership, where you serve all under you and above you. I just want to be a normal member with stronger spiritual maturity. Then what? Leave it at that and feel good about yourself? HELP! I'm arguing against myself! I really can't think of an answer to what he said. Aiks.
Nevermind... that's an issue for another day. Pastor Kong was supposed to come last weekend, but it was announced he couldn't make it on Thursday. Then at around midnight that same night, it was announced he could come. Okay, good. The next day, after morning prayer meeting (Issey, Denise and I all overslept the previous day for morning prayer meeting =x) I was asked to help out in some backstage stuff for Pastor Kong's service, I would need to reach church by 5pm. Considering Ruz, Henry, Licia, Kok Kin and I were planning to go to Ikea at 2 plus, I decided to postponed the plan and go another time. Then around 1pm Pastor Kong couldn't come again -.-. Due to Sun's intestinal problems. Ouchies, take care!
I reached school around 9. Ruz and the rest were arriving around noon. While killing time playing games on my laptop, I met tons of people I knew, including Peggy, Xin Yi, Priscilla, Nash, and well... you get the picture. Anyhoo, since Pastor Kong's service was canceled (again) I was free for Ikea! We went and enjoyed their SWEDISH MEATBALLS! They're some of the best tasting food in the entire world! I kid you not! If you haven't eaten their Swedish meatballs you haven't eaten properly yet! We walked around the Curve, Ikano and Cineleisure (yeah, Singaporeans, there's another Cineleisure here too) a bit and ended up in a neoprint store, which had an arcade game inside called Evil Night. It's a very old shooter game, but the unique thing is that there's 3 guns, one of which is a shotgun. Also, it's very hard to tell if the enemies are dead, and the bosses are freaking insane, especially that stupid snake. The game is pretty long for an 11 year old game, and it's much more scarier than any horror shooter I've played. They also don't give you very much resting time in between stages. 5 Seconds is like all you get before you needa blast off the undead again. Well... after spamming the screen with our bullets, we died a stage from the final. Zzz.
For the weekend (which was the same weekend Pastor Kevin finished the series), Ruz and I stayed over at Henry's place. Before that, we went to Nuraini's (wrong spelling?) birthday celebration. This is actually the first time we formally met, although we've seen each other before. And even when I didn't know her she referred to me as the spiky-hair guy -.-. Heh... we chatted and ate some pretty good food, and later on we played Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii! My first time actually touching a Wii. And playing one of my favourite game series too. I used my classic Kirby and rock bottomed everyone pretty often, heh. It's quite confusing though, the controls, 'cause I'm not used to the Wii controllers. I preferred the N64 controller. That was one of the most unique ever. Anyhoo, I always ended up second place for every match -.-.
After going back to Henry's place, we played 2 freaking long sessions of Resident Evil 5 over 2 days, and completed the game. It's quite tough at certain parts. The enemies are spammed at you more than the Ganados, and it's quite tense in many parts. What I don't quite like though, is that the horror factor is practically gone. It's not really survival horror now, its more like survival action, more so than action horror to me. But it's very fun, and the co-op was a very nice factor. Ruz and I double teamed very well on Wesker (well... except when I let him let go and die). Ruz is also a complete moron when it comes to healing! I'm like dying, and he goes and sprays the first aid spray on himself! LOL!
We celebrated Issey's birthday on Sunday too. We planned a major sabotage of him. Heh! This picture will pretty much describe everything we did to him.
After he showered and everything we gave a cake and a few gifts, as well as a slideshow presentation I created myself, and as a result, made me lose 99% of my sleep, heh. It was a short "story" with pictures that were photoshopped, from infancy, to child, to teen and adulthood and finally his age. I cropped his head and put them over other bodies that represented the different ages in his life. Success! Turns out a lot of people liked it. So whew... mission accomplished =p.
Tuesday we had our caring system in church reiterated and in thorough detail. Reminds me alot of Pastor Kong's Church Without Walls message over 5 years ago. Very similar in many areas. But yeah, it was part teaching, and part discussion with our own cellgroups. Pretty fruitful.
Anyway, since I had the morning prayer meetings last week, followed by Issey's birthday preparations and all, plus the caring system thing on Tuesday, I only officially began my holiday yesterday. And guess what? I'm working. I'm helping my mom to promote fibre optics broadband, and its damn reliable, compared to most other services. It's just not available in many areas. Zzz.
Yeah... so in a sense I'm not getting my holidays at all until I go visit singapore. Which is... soon =D.
