Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a great Sunday so far.. It's been a month since I last wrote an entry in here and I absolutely feel guilty for not being able to come up with something to write. May has been a pretty toxic month for me and my family. The first week of May was spent shifting things in our new place — or new room shall I say. Imagine having to meet course deadlines while embracing the pain of sore shoulders that came from carrying heavy things! Anyway, to top off the month of May, some good things happened like preparing the decorations for Zach, my *ehem* godson. (I'm feeling so old but yes) We spent the rest of May making slideshows, cutting off crafts for decor, buying stuff and literally just putting things to places. Another event that happened is the awesome Hillsong x Voice International thanksgiving dinner that took place last 27th of May. The food was delish and also, it has been great meeting the volunteers I got to work with during Hillsong United's concert in Dubai last 28th-29th of April. Read about that here. Lastly, the the birthday celebration we have all been waiting for happened just 2 days ago (June 2) and the picture above is the Piñata where kids (mostly adults) joined in and had so much fun catching all those candies. Long story short, May may have been a lot stressful but maybe it's been the most productive too. Here's another entry for the Sunday Currently. Enjoy!
I just finished Emma! (After many months lol)
The last few chapters of the book absolutely blew me away thinking that I was bored because of the long filler chapters in middle. The end is satisfying enough and I would recommend it to those who love literature and love classics too.
The Sunday Currently Volume 10!
to nothing at the moment; but because I've been listening to the songs in the slideshow my sister made for our godson's birthday, I think the songs are stuck on my mind for a long time now, It's When I'm with You and Big World Baby both sung by JJ Heller. I so love JJ Heller's voice!
a little relieved for some reason; as you may know, my family's still facing some problems which often causes emotional damages and issues within. It's hard to say, but today, I just woke up realizing and witnessing how God's mercies are truly new every morning. I wish I could tell you the whole story.. God is good, guys. God is good!
Over all, I just want to tell you that wherever you are or whatever stage of life you're in, just keep holding on. Many will try to distract you and remove your focus from God. Some will sneer at you and misjudge you. All of which are emotionally and mentally depressing, I know. But in the end, you just really have to tighten your grip on His hand and believe me, He'll never let you go. Some days will be like torture, but most days, you'll just be surprised that He really is working on days where we think He's silent. Many bad news around the world are showing up and that's sad, horrible and terrifying even, but let's rest assured that God has a better, and an even brighter plan for all of us. I may never be able to speak for everyone but at least, in my life, I've proven many times that there's Someone up there watching over us :) Have a blessed week!

I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
