Headed to church for Christmas service in the afternoon. Heard many amazing testimonies.
Pastor preached about happiness. There are 3 level of happiness.
Nah, just kidding.
The first is Pleasure. Don’t deny that money does give you happiness. Shopping does give us happiness. Owning a brand new gadget, car, clothes, bags does give us happiness. But these happiness is only temporary. Agree?
The second one is Passion. We all have passion. Passion for blogging. Passion for designing. Passion for nursing. And these passion gives us happiness to an extend. We love working at what we are passionate for. True? You can put it in your hobbies too. The happiness level is longer than pleasure. When you have passion for something, it gives you pleasure. So it goes like this. I once have lotsa passion in cycling. Now, I don’t cycle anymore. I found a new passion. Which is sleeping. HAHA! That cycling passion has fade off.
And the last one is Purpose. Whatever we do, when we found the purpose in what we wanna do, the happiness is long lasting. Therefore, when we know the purpose, we will have the passion, and it gives us pleasure. So instead of starting off with pleasure, why not start off with having a purpose?
What is your purpose living in this world? We can see many unhappy people around because mainly they do not know the main purpose of life. So true, it kept me to ponder. I have a few people asked before, few years ago. And quite often, their answers will be, “To enjoy lor. Die already cannot enjoy ma.”
Ya lah. Enjoy must be happy right? But why so much unhappiness? The enjoyment is just temporary.
So ask yourself. What is your purpose in life? Is life just how you are living? Or is there more than just that?
Rachel gave one great awesome testimony that had a great link to the levels of happiness. Her story was just like any other person who thinks life is just doing what you wanna do, thinking life was just like how you and me live everyday. Whatever that gives her pleasure still led her to so much sadness and she just didn’t know why despite having so much pleasure in shopping and spending all of her savings off. Finally, she found her purpose in life, which is in God. She found God in her lowest moment of her life when she was not even a believer yet. And now, her life is changed, into a happier person, a person full of dreams and vision, and knowing her purpose in life.
She owns a blogshop, that was then, just an ordinary blogshop with no purpose, no vision. Now, she designs her own label and best of all, have a story behind every design. All are inspiring and I love reading them. Do drop by http://thankgodformyspringfling.tumblr.com/ for her writings and of course her blogshop!
Do watch this video too. It is based on her testimony.
And of course, a visit from the boyfriend during the Christmas holidays. =) He finally met my grandfather and is able to click quite well. =)
Many people told me that it is too long to be in a relationship with Josh. I am now at the dangerous stage, where breakups can happen anytime. But I don’t feel so lor, neither does Josh. In fact, we felt like we are so close, like we have just started dating each other. They said 8 years is too long and it is time to get married. They said people will start feeling bored of each other. But, I don’t feel bored of Josh! Cause every time we meet, we discover something new about each other. Hehe. Plus, if get bored, married already ma worst?
And I find it kinda ridiculous to leave a person because I’m bored of him and because it’s been too long. I mean, if no plans of marriage then I understand lah. See he so fat also I want him. You know la girls wan muscular man one. But he loves his muscles so much, he gotta protect it with a huge layer of fat. Aih…..
This Christmas, I learnt about true happiness. Have you found your happiness?
Adidas came out with a new label called Adidas NEO where its designs are colourful, fun, funky and of course style and sporty at the same time. Its label is to target to appeal to all the young fashionable ones. It’s fresh line collection of footwear and apparels with special collections from David Beckham.
Because this label is new in Malaysia, with only 3 stores nationwide – KL, Kota Kinabalu and Kuantan, Adidas organized a competition, where 10 young, happening, fun bloggers were chosen to run compete in being Malaysia’s first Adidas Neo Label Ambassador! I know a few of them personally who were chosen and there were this few ones that were having good fights in the votes!
To cut the whole long story short, I would like to congratulate my friend, Careen for being Malaysia’s First Adidas Neo Label Ambassador! I can say she did put in ALOT of effort in making this dream alive.
And her efforts are just so natural. I mean, she is a full time student, a leader in church, has lots of part time work – modeling, ushering, hosting, acting, shooting, etc. and you will NEVER hear any complains from her. *salute*. Yet, she still can balance her time between studies, work, God, family, fiance, and friends. Not forgetting, in the midst of preparing for her big day! Those who knows her will agree with me though I’m not so close to her.
She is one super friendly and she always smiles. ALWAYS! Such joy in her heart despite being tired physically. She definitely enjoys every single bit of her life!
“After thousands of votes, we have crowned Malaysia’s first adidas NEO ambassador, Careen Tan! She proved herself to be the true embodiment of the NEO identity, and we couldn’t have picked a more eclectic individual to represent the adidas NEO brand!”
It’s true! I mean, she is just a natural talented girl! Dances, sings, acts, models and beautiful!
It was a close fight between Jane. When Jane and Careen were on the Top 2, they were given only 48 hours to get as many people to vote and comment on the video they made. No doubt, Jane had lots of votes coming in, while Careen was behind her. Careen may be new in the blogosphere while Jane has already lots of fans out there. Well, thank God, votes alone were just 20% overall. The judges decisions were 80%. And the judges made the right choice! =D
Not that Jane’s not good. Both have their strength and weaknesses. But based on the final video, I think Careen did a better job in promoting the colourful-ness, fun-ness, style-ness of Adidas NEO. =)
Careen in the recent City Harvest Church production, Chrome Heart. So cheerful!
And here are a few videos Careen did that brings her to where she deserves.
The video that attracted Ryan Higa (nigahiga) and has almost 43,000 views.
Thumbs up to Careen’s sister, Gladys for the awesome video!
Recorded with CHC talented people like Shawn Lee!
THE WINNING VIDEO
Shot in Adidas Neo stores in KL and KK. Thumbs up to Gordon for the great video!
Don’t you think she deserves the winning crown? =D
All the best in your future career, Careen! I can’t wait to see you in more commercials, billboards, adverts and more.
Jayesslee, twin sisters Janice and Sonia are probably one my favourite youtube singers. I always look forward for new covers from them. I wish, one day, during my wedding I can fly them over to sing! *dreams* haha
Well, this song, Your Love Is Everything is by Jesus Culture.
Seeing them seeing with such smile on their faces, really encourages me that Jesus’ love IS everything. There is the joy of the Lord!
Enjoy the music!
When I am dry and thirsty Lord,
And I’m crying out for more,
I know I can trust in your love.
In the darkness in the night
When I’m starving for the light
I know I can trust in Your love
You keep no records of my sin,
and you don’t remember all my shame.
Your love heals every disease
Your love fulfills my every need
Your love is everything to me
Your love is everything
I will not forget
I wont forget your promises
I will not forget
I wont forget your love.
I will not forget
I wont forget nothing is impossible
I will not forget
I wont forget your love.
