BBQ went well. There was tons of food. Michelle and Ryan made this cool fruit salad and used the watermelon shell as a bowl! it was so cool, till Wade broke it. Ahhh well. The main food was hambergers and hotdogs, and some kaluhua (dunno if that’s spelled right) bbq pork. The bbq kaluhua pork was a little strong, hah, didn’t burn out well. I also helped a guy named …

Here goes some scripture I read this morning. It seems very timely for a situation that I’m going to. For the full detail of the scripture, read the first chapter of Hosea also, but I really like this 2nd chapter. Hosea 2 1 “Say of your brothers, `My people,’ and of your sisters, `My loved one.’ 2 “Rebuke your mother, rebuke her, for she is not my wife, and I …

Well a few weeks have now passed since I’ve done this journal. Not sure of the last time I did one, but it was a while ago. I was in SF for a LONG time (from July 3rd, up until last night) and stayed at my parents house. There is almost no food there, but that’s ok, since most of the nights I went out with friends to eat or …

Well some interesting things happened lately. And I haven’t updated my journal in almost a week! geez. Horrible. Anyways. Well here goes a recap of days: Thursday: Went out with Patrick and Sandra and went golfing at the Presideo Golf Course. Well not real golfing, but we went to the driving range again. Patrick won, and drove the ball the furthest (and he was even using right handed clubs! my …

Well 4th of July passed (as well as my Dad’s bday (7/01), and my Mom’s bday too (7/4). We didn’t really celebrate it, but I got them stuff, hehe. Anyways, the 4th of July was a never ending decision making process. At first we were going to go down to my place in San Jose, since it was warm, and we could barbaque there (course it would be HOT too). …

Found some cool chord progressions. I want to write a song now. Some kinda worship song (and I had some cool singable melodies for it too). Hopefully something will come of this, whooo. =) First God gave me lyrics, now He gives me music, cool. Now just to put two and two together. current mood: ecstactic

Hah, I don’t remember when my last journal entry was…prolly thursday. Pastor Kevin spoke well for his last Friday with us, before Pastor Sandra officially takes over. His message was a good one that I hope the Youth hold on to well. Eddie lead worship with Pat and Reese on guitars, and it went really well (well other than having to learn mostly new songs, but that’s ok). We went …

Hah, that seems to be all I talk about. Just weird stuff that happens. Anyways, I woke up at 4 in the morning today, and heard strange noises, like people dropping sutff or hitting the wall or something. So anyways, it was kinda weird, cuz I was really awake, and wasn’t sure what was going on. Thought maybe it was burglars or something. I got this bat thing from under …

Lol, most of you who read this have no idea to what that title in green letters means. =P It’s a guitar! hehe, big surprise right? Well I was at guitar center today picking up some Hot Rods (drum sticks) for the youth dept. and I stopped into the acoustic guitar room for abit. Now this Chet Atkins technically isn’t an acoustic guitar…but sorta is. It’s a hollow-body, meaning that …

Service went well today. We did a lot of songs though, hah, and I had to practice them all right before service during worship practice (I knew all of the, but not sure if I played all of them before). Pastor Kevin had a very good message today on being Obediant to God. I felt like he was going to do a Altar call, but was sorta surprised that he …

Well Pat and Erik came over late on Thursday night, erm, wait, I just read that I posted about that already….ok. Well the beach was cool, but REALLY cold, haha. We met at Janet’s place and then headed out to Baker Beach over by 25th Avenue. We played some Boggle out there on the beach and hung out only for about a half hour until some of us had to …

Erm, sorry, I watched Chasing Amy yesterday (psycho weird flick), but still kinda interesting, but not as good as Kevin Smith’s other films (Clerks, Mallrats, and Dogma, thou I disliked Dogma). Anyways, Pat and Erik came over last night after being in a chatroom and saying for them to come down, hah. We just hung out and played guitar and jammed and stuff. Supposed to head up to SF in …

Well I don’t have to explain yesterday too much, since I didn’t do much, hehe. Today my plans are with an old friend, cuz it’s her birthday! =P I’m driving up to SF for today and celebrating Elisa’s 21st birthday (and supposedly she wants me to be the designated driver…uh oh). Blah, she told me she wanted to buy some drinks since it was her 21st birthday, whatever. Looks like …

Ya know… Friends are really great. God has really blessed me with people who do care about me and who are totally willing to pray for me. Praise the Lord! I’ve poured my heart out to a few people today (well yesterday) and they’re all praying for me, awesome aint it? Anyways, just thought I’d share that. current mood: content

Psalm 24:3-6 Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God …

Whooo, another weekend update. And some nice juicy stuff to talk about, hahaha. Friday was a cool day. I didn’t do much, but it was still good. At Youth Group we had an announcement of a new Youth Pastor for the English congregation, and it was none other than our homegrown PK girl, Pastor Sandra Lim. It’ll be a good time for Sandra to grow and for us to learn …

But the living room and bathroom are all cleaned. Looks really nice too. =P Ahhhhh, I’m tired. current mood: tired

Anyways, I’ll be doing some “House Work” with cleaning up and everything, and already have been. The living room is cleaner now, but still needs to be vacumed and stuff. Prolly will be cleaning for awhile, alas. =P DSL has been acting funny all today, …

Ahhh, DSL was down most of this morning (well from 11am until about now, not techincally morning for most people….but usually morning for me, lol, j/k). Ended up playing StarCraft with some of my housemates over our network since the DSL was down and I couldn’t do anything else. Ahn chilled with us last night at the house after work. He came by to hang out and we went out …

Whoooooooo, loooooooooooooooooooooong weekend here folks. I headed back to SF on Thursday afternoon, so you’ll get a nice 4 day weekend update (which feels like one of the longest weekends I’ve had in a long time, but enjoyable =) ). Thursday started out with prep’ing for the Grad Banquet at church the next day. We all got there around 5-5:30ish and started at around 6:30. We finished at around 9:30, …

So my rents going up by 400$ (well for the house). So the new rent price per month will be 2600$. Crazy eh? This place isn’t worth that much, aiya. Blah, makes me a lil mad, but ok, whatever. =P Moved all the guitar stuff back from my car and the weekend and stuff. Having fun just jamming around. I wish I could write more stuff, like songs and stuff, …

Had an interesting conversation with a friend today that I forgot to mention. She reads this sometimes and mentioned how she thought it was neat, since I used to think I kept things to myself or something, but now I have a journal. Just thought it was interesting. For those of ya who know me and read this, how do you think I am? I guess it was kinda of …

hehe, Just got out of a crazy chat room that I started with a bunch of people from my church. Whole lotta people came in (think it was like 10 or 11 at the max). Crazy talk most of the time, which just proves how we’re all insane at my church. Saturday is looking cool. A bunch of us from church are going to Justin’s dad’s place in Concord to …

Hah, ok, another weird dream day, and it invovles people from church again. This time Justin and I were on some weird island river thing and were swimming around on some river with all these trees and wildlife around and all that. I remember this one part where the current was going really fast and we had to duck underwater to avoid trees that were right above water so we …

dern it, Berean didn’t have it in stock yet. It’s offically out by Vineyard, but I guess Berean didn’t get in their shipment yet. They said any day now (that’s most likely 2 weeks, lol, knowing stores). Been doing a little rearranging of stuff around the house. Went out and boutght toilet paper and garbage bags today too, much needed stuff (since we were out of both, heh). Blah. =) …

Read More →

I may head out to Berean later today and check out Vineyard’s Burn Service’s latest cd, Never Looking Back. I truely enjoyed their first two releases “Your Love Reaches Me” and “The Burn Service”. Great cds with some awesome guitar and youth oriented stuff. =) Prolly see if that accompiment track is over at Berean also, not sure if it would be though. Reading through some Live Journals of Chris …

LOL, what a weird dream today. Wont’ go through all the details (as with most dreams I don’t remember about half of it), but it ended with the ship my family was on crashing in the ocean, but I recovered my Taylor guitar, but it had teeth holes all in in, and I questioned if insurance would cover it, LOL. Long story, if you want to know about it sometime, …

Wow, it’s been awhile. Nothing really new is going on. Have to send off my Cingular wireless bill tommorrow before it’s late, heh. Dorothy from Phil’s church came over today and we went out to Todai in Eastridge mall. Todai is a cool japanese buffet place. Pretty good, good sushi. Anyways, also went to that Winchester Mystery House. Always thought it was supposed to be scary or something, but was …

Well looks like the days of Napster may be over. I tried looking for some stuff today and nothing showed up on ALL of my searches. So either Napster just isn’t working anymore, or they’re blocking a whole lotta stuff. Blah, oh well. I found some really good mp3s of worship stuff that Steve Fee and Candi Pearson did in their Big Stuf Band or Exit 10. Sounds really good, …

Hrm, lesse what’s been going on since the last entry that seems like so long ago…. Lisa Lau got her license! But with a whole other lotta stuff that happened to her. Right after she went through all the trouble to get it (some cracked mirror, some brake light that was out, some other stuff, ugh) Anyways, right after she passed her license test, she was driving her brother’s civic …

Hrm, still don’t know exactly what I’m playing tonite for worship. Ahh well. Guess I’ll just bring the Taylor along (probably what I’m playing). No other real cool updates or anything, pretty boring uneventful day, hehe. current mood: bored

Eeeek, went through 3 straight hours of gaming. Played from about 9pm till 12 midnight tonite of RA3. First my my computer hasn’t crashed in an extended gaming session in awhile, and man, did it feel good! =P Had about 155 frags, and 220 some odd damage scoring in 183 minutes. Not bad =) hehehehe. Couldn’t keep my 1 frag: 1 minute ratio though…ahh well. current mood: accomplished

Well let’s see, what’s going on today….Not much really, lol. Anh’s going up to Berkeley later tonite. We dont’ know why, there’s no AACF large group, guess he’s just visiting people *cough* weird. =P. Anyways, what else is going on….Lisa is taking her driving test today…Not sure at what time, but think she may have already taken it. Haven’t gotten a call or IM from her yet, so dunno if …

Well tonite we had our last meeting for AACF @ SJSU. It was a semi-informal meeting and Ice Cream social over at one of our Staffers for AACF, Derek Miyahara’s house. He lives out in Campbell. Before the meeting we all met over at Joe West (the big tall dorm here at SJSU), and headed out. A few of us got really hungry, and left to get some Jack in …

Wow, nice product they have (avalon). Unfortunately they don’t have one in stock (not that I would buy one right now), but it certainly was nice. It riches the tones of the higher strings, but also the low strings, and everywhere…dunno really how to describe it, but I like it. Hopefully maybe I’ll get one this summer. =) current music: Better is One Day (Live) – Chris Tomlin

Hey, don’t mind me, I’m just a stranger, hehe. Sorry for never writing and everything. I’ve been a part of this egroup, well…ever since it was really still under egroups (and not yahoo, hah). Wow, coming up is almost May 20th! Almost a year since I met you guys and was richly blessed at OneDay (I keep saying that term, “richly blessed” but it’s been mostly for other people…but now …

Hrm, ok, here goes my nice weekend update. Wow, college people are back! Justin and Clifford got back on Friday Night, Mel came back on Saturday night. I hung out with Cliff on Saturday, and went to go see The Mummy Returns with Lisa, and Ryan. It was an entertaining movie, but had to pay 10$ at the parking lot, but that’s ok, since Lisa got us in for free …

Well Anh beat us all today in Laser Quest or what not. He scored like 600 points and got 2nd place (the 1st place guy worked there). I got 4th place after Davey. I shoulda done better, but weird, even though a guy was right in front of me, I couldn’t shoot him. Supposedly when you fire there’s like a second when you can’t be hit, so if you fire …

Brent brought up a good point today in a reply that Musicianfriend sells then (at 539$, eeeep) but with a 45-day return policy. Course I would have to pay the shipping back…but I think I’ll wait until summer to buy one, ahhhh. Then all next year it’ll be doing camps and such and ministry to pay it off? lol. Anyways, it was kind of funny that Brent mentioned Musician’s Friend, …

Skipped a day in this, whoooo. Guess nothing important happened yesterday. Still on the search for one of those Avalon U5 boxes…maybe I’ll try to stop by Guitar Center today and try one out if they have one. Would be very interesting. hehe. Anyways, think that’s about it for this update. current mood: bored current music: Passion 2000 (Rutgers Live) – Agnus Dei

Ohhhhhhmygosh, I want one of these Avalon U5 DI Boxes. Shane Barnard uses one and it makes soooooooo much of a difference. I want to try to go to Guitar Center tommorrow and check out how it sounds and everything. The retail cost on it is 595$!!!! Maybe one day when I’m rich I’ll get one, lol. Or all of you reading this can someday get me one for my …

I felt like I’m in the mood for some old school worship, so I went into the old archives of AACF and pulled out some goodies. The songs we’re doing tonight are Light the Fire, Glory Honor Power, Psalm 121, Christ In Me, and Holy and Anointed One. Good stuff, hehehe. Hopefully if you read this you can come join us out in San Jose State University’s Student Union on …

Well finally one of my friends signed up for LiveJournal.com, a cool site if I do say so myself. I can express myself a lot with it (even thou no one might ever read this, lol).

Argh, I hate my video card or something. Whenever I play some games (like Quake3) it’ll just randomly crash my computer. Same thing happens in Counterstrike. I was doing really well in Rocket Arena 3 too, even though I haven’t played in about a week or so. =P Had a damage score of about 42, frags were at 23, time was only at 15 minutes. *sigh* stupid video card…. current …

Well let’s see, what else is new today…It’s Anh Troung’s birthday. Happy Birthday Anh! =P He wants to go with a few of us to play laser tag at some place, where they have like 20 minute rounds.

Oh man, I just woke up from the absolute weirdest dream (well maybe not absolute weirdest…I’ve had some pretty weird ones, but it doesn’t match Elisa’s “Antlers” dream…hah). But this dream was just weird, think I was watching too much US Marshalls the other day or something. I was on the run from the cops or something, because something happened, and I was blamed. I only really remember the last …

Hah, I’m pretty tired now. Been up listening to some cool mp3s from sjohnson615 on aim. He runs a pretty cool shoutcast server also that usually plays Shane Barnard mp3s 24/7. Check it out at http://c113358-a.clmbus1.ga.home.com:8000/listen.pls current mood: tired current music: Skillet – Your Name Is Holy (Sandy’s Server)

Hrm, wondering who would actually in their right mind ever read these posts…. I guess I’ll just keep doing them though, it’s kinda fun, even though they’re kinda out there for everyone to see, so I can’t ever put anything really really personal, hahah. It would suck if I was talking smack bout someone, or talking about someone I like, and they saw what I said…heh, note to self, never …

The best place to find out about the 268 Alliance and everything about Passion. Passion is a organization that supports college students in bringing them together for doing the Lord’s work. I attended last years OneDay event out in Memphis, TN, and it was great! (I still have pictures from there too, if you’ve never seen them). Met some great friends there who I may see this summer in NY …

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention over the weekend I put up a cool winamp Shoutcast Server at http://64.81.57.221:8000/ Give it a listen. It’s 24/7 praise and worship (well when it’s up, which is most of the time, except maybe weekends). I don’t have a very big play list right now (only about 10 hours) because about a month ago now, I did something stupid and my hard drive with …

Hehe, just sitting back and watching the Simpsons on UPN! w000t! What a great show. Now you guys all get to read about my boring life, isn’t it great? hehehe. I learned how to play Psalm 145 today, which is by a great guitarist/vocalist/worship leader from Texas, Shane Barnard. It’s a really cool song, with a neat chorus and great dynamics to the whole song. Ask me to play it …
