Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?
Saturday, February 13, 2010
Aye... this is the first Saturday (or weekend, if you'd like specifics) in a really long time I haven't gone to church. Feels very weird.
Due to the Chinese New Year festivities, and all the people going back to their hometowns, the services were moved to Tuesday and Wednesday, and Pastor Kevin preached about respecting the traditional beliefs our relatives have, even if we find them ridiculous. Quite a light-hearted and funny service, and Pastor Kevin mentioned one thing that really rang true. If you don't respect the beliefs and follow them, then why is it okay for you to take red packets, which is also part of the beliefs? Not believing in them is fine, but to belittle them, especially to our more traditional relatives, isn't.
Heh... well, usually I go to Kluang to celebrate Chinese New Year with the relatives. This year, due to family issues, we're not going (for the second year in a row). Sigh... I told ya, my family life is messed up -.-. Even the extended family.
Well, even so, half of my immediate family (my dad and his girlfriend being the other half) Uncle Ben, my mom and I went out for a great dinner at The Ship earlier. Freaking filling salmon steak and mushroom soup for me! And I brought my PSP to get internet access there. I swear I'm going nuts without regular internet. No checking emails, no checking Facebook, no checking my blog, no Twitter (even though I find it really pointless). And worst of all, no MSN! Chatting online is one of the usual methods through which I chat up people! And I can't! Geez! I'm not the SMS-ing kinda guy, and you can only chat with so much people in real life. Zzz.
