Got this wonderful images from a friend. I thought I might share it with you to show how wonderful, grateful and powerful our God is. 🙂

Ouch, I’m in pain!

Yesterday, our company held the first Badminton competition. They are in the country for almost 7 years already and it is their first time to hold such event. Maybe because they will be enough people to join the competition. Although there’s only 22 of us in the office, we managed to have a balance team. Why balance, almost all of us, only one or two players really plays badminton 😀

First game is suppose to be Yellow (my team) versus Green. So since one of the guy from the Green team didn’t show up, we were teasing default. But they have decided to have a mixed, for Green and double boys for Yellow. However, my boss said which is also my teammate said, to be fair, it should be mixed as well to our team. So they have decided to have me.

So we played, Jett and I, mixed versus the Green team. We won after close fight. To my surprise after that game, it is double Yellow girls versus Green. And I was like, “can I get at least 10 minutes rest?”. But too bad, the game continued. I played badminton, not in tournament level but enough to win the game. My partner play as well but not as good as I play. So I have to support her a lot, running every shuttlecock and mind you guys, that’s the only game that reached 3rd set. The first set, we lost. The 2nd we won so we have a 3rd set to know who will win. I was sweating like a pig honestly. Then we won.

I was so happy that we are leading team and will have a chance of landing 2nd place which I would like to have. The award is not that grand but still hey its a gift check. So I better grab it? So we just rested for like 15 minutes then I played again with Red team girls, gosh they won and the game was fast. But of course having two of them who plays for tournament and us playing street badminton ahaha, who would win aight?

Then we played with double blue, we thought, they would be an easy opponent. However, when you play ‘alone’ and there’s two of them playing together, who would win. When I say alone, there’s still two of us, however, I know my partner is already tired and doesn’t want to run after those shuttlecocks. So I tried my best to cope up but see it is not enough. It still should be two of us working together to win.

So the dream of th 2nd place fell. We landed to 3rd or might be fourth. We had finals. Thank God, it was mixed. I played very well with Jett so we decided to play together to win even the 3rd place. The first set, usual, we lost. But the second, we tried to win. I was losing hope honestly, but imagining my love is watching me from the bench and cheering for me, gave me hope that I could still win. So I pushed my hardest to win. This time not because of the gift check but because I want my love to be proud of me. So we won, 3rd place. Not bad but not good enough. Because I know we could be 2nd placer if we just try our hardest.

So now when I got home, I am in pain now. My entire body is aching like hell. Can’t move nor walk properly. But I am happy because I know at least my love is proud of me. I promised the next time, I will give him the championship award. 🙂 See whenever you feel like giving up, just thinking your love will give you enough strength to try harder and won’t let you give up. They will inspire you to try winning. 🙂

Till next time, resting time..

I am staying

Trust me when I said I have never met anyone like you. I have been through this before. Having to decide whether I should let go or stay as I am. I have never cared how people will look, how people will think. Because to me YOU are the most important thing that matters now. People can lie, people can try, people can hurt, they can try to imitate me as much as they want, say whatever they want, do whatever they want. I DON’T CARE, because I know that we are different. We are strong. And each time stronger than ever! And my decision? I’m telling the world now… I’M HAPPY LIKE THIS! And I’M HAPPY WITH YOU!!! NO ONE CAN EVER CHANGE THAT EXCEPT US!!! US! To hell with the world I DON’T CARE!!! I AM STAYING WITH YOU TILL THE DAY YOU SAY NO TO ME!!

Moments of Love

Moments of love
Close beside you on the warmth of the heart
Although the night
It’s just you and me
We can make it to the beat of our heart
Lost in the start

Moments of love
Moments of love
Bringing us closer together
Sweet memories
Sweet memories
I know we’ll remember forever
Moments of love

My lover my friend my friend
You can give me
All the things that you see
I’ll always dream
Dreamin’ in your arms (your arms)
I feel it’s like I can do everything
You’ve given me wings

Moments of love
Moments of love
Bringin’ us closer together
Sweet memories
(Sweet memories)
I know we’ll remember forever
Moments of love

Faded photographs and letters
Signed I love you
Promises we made together
And dreams that came true
Dreams that came true (dreams that came true)

And Day after day (day after day)
We look into life with
Moments of love
Moments…
Bringing us closer together
Sweet memories
Sweet memories
I know we’ll remember forever
Moments of love

At the beginning

We were strangers starting out on our journey
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through
Now here we are and I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected what you did to my heart
When I lost hope you were there to remind me
This is the start

(chorus)
And Life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road now and forever
A Wonderful journey

I’ll be there when the world stops turning
I’ll be there whenthe storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

(chorus)

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
I know that my dream will live on
I’ve been waiting so long
Nothing’s gonna tear us apart

(chorus)

In the end I wanna be standing at the beginning with you

Because you love me

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

With A Smile

Lift your head, baby, don’t be scared
Of the things that could go wrong along the way
You’ll get by with a smile
You can’t win at everything but you can try.

Baby, you don’t have to worry
‘Coz there ain’t no need to hurry
No one ever said that there’s an easy way
When they’re closing all their doors
And they don’t want you anymore
This sounds funny but I’ll say it anyway.

Girl I’ll stay through the bad times
Even if I have to fetch you everyday
I’ll get by if you smile
You can never be too happy in this life.

In a world where everybody
Hates a happy ending story
It’s a wonder love can make the world go round
And don’t let it bring you down
And turn your face into a frown
You’ll get along with a little prayer and a song.

(Too doo doo…)
Let me hear you sing it
(Too doo doo…)

In a world where everybody
Hates a happy ending story
It’s a wonder love can make the world go round
But don’t let it bring you down
And turn your face into a frown
You’ll get along with a little prayer and a song.

Lift your head, baby, don’t be scared
Of the things that could go wrong along the way
You’ll get by with a smile
Now it’s time to kiss away those tears goodbye

(Too doo doo…)
Let me hear you sing it
(Too doo doo…)

Just call me angel in the morning

There’ll be no strings to bind your hands

Not if my love can find your heart

And there’s no need to take a stand

For it was I who choose to start

I see no need to take me home

I’m old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Just touch my cheek before you leave me

Oh my baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sunlight will be dim

But it won’t matter anyhow

If morning’s echoes say we’ve sinned

Then it was what I wanted now

And if we’re victims of the night

I won’t be blinded by the light

Oh my baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby

Just call me angel of the morning

Then slowly turn away from me

Baby baby baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Just touch my cheek before you leave me

Oh my baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Just touch my cheek before you leave me

Oh my baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel

Angel of the morning

It’s the most wonderful thing

One love…
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one
I love you so
Love is the beautiful one

I love you so
