skiing was too cool even though i suck at it. Can't seem to control my speed. Fell down a million times under many embarrassing circumstances but didn't break anything, thankfully. :) The mountains were gorgeous and ayu and i met whole bunch of interesting people from all over the world.. and we discovered that we rock at racing cars on playstation. haha. oh oh, french food is so yummy.. our chef gets better everyday at producing the best meals ever.. although nothing much beats shariff's nasi kandar.
flew back saturday morning straight into preparing for our church's connect group christmas party. it was quite amazing.. beautiful decorations, yummy food, and all around super atmosphere and people. We had no program but the party just assumed a life of its own.. the best part was when the people started limbo-rocking and dancing.. :) it was truly a night to remember. i love the guys in my life.. When i say jump, they ask, how high? heheheh.. it was too good to be true man.. i love my church.. if you haven't already gathered by now.. it's the best thing in london. :)
now that all the fun is over, i'm getting back to school work and sorting out priorities. oh for wisdom from above!
have quite the week coming up: uncle pete down on weds/thurs, graduation on thursday, connect group on thursday, essay deadline on friday, party on friday night in putney, possible breakfast on saturday.. and i kinda need to catch up on sleep as well. december is by far my favourite month, always.
something interesting that i read in the toilet this morning:
"For what we need to know, of course, is not just that God exists, not just that beyond the steely brightness of the stars there is a cosmic intelligence of some kind that keeps the whole show going, but that there is a God right here in the thick of our day-by-day lives who may not be writing messages about himself in the stars but in one way or another is trying to get messages through our blindness as we move around down here knee-deep in the fragrant muck and misery and marvel of the world. It is not objective proof of God's existence that we want but the experience of God's presence. That is the miracle that we are really after, and that is also, I think, the miracle that we really get." - Frederick Buechner
cool hey. :)
have a great month everyone!
