Jam Kehidupan - Remembering Abud

This song has been playing in my head ever since I heard the news about a good friend's passing due to an accident. It was unexpected. He was still very young.

In our teenage years, we sang this song together.
Jam kehidupan diputar sekali
Dan tak seorang pun tau kapan 'kan berhenti
Mungkin hari ini, mungkin esok, mungkin nanti
Cepat atau lambat, tak seorang tau
Bila waktunya 
Jam kehidupan diputar sekali
Dan tak seorang pun tau kapan 'kan berhenti
Sadarilah, kawan, hidup ini tak terulang
Sekarang waktunya yang kau miliki
S'karang waktunya 
Milikilah kasih Yesus
Yang menjadikan hidupmu berarti
Bekerjalah di ladang-Nya
Agar hidup tiada percuma
My friend had definitely done that in his life. He was a figure we love and respect, mostly because he loved God with all his heart.

I regret being so far away that I couldn't even attend his funeral. And while I know God's plan is the best and beyond my own understanding, let me grieve a while longer for my good friend. The tears will eventually dry and I will smile again. But for now, let me cry some more.

He is survived by his wife, a daughter, and a child in his wife's womb. May the Lord, the source of all comfort, strengthen and guide and embrace them in His love and faithfulness.

Abud, we will miss you, and we will see you in heaven one day.

Amigurumi: Mario Bros Mushroom

I found out that I had a stash of acrylic yarns left (in the storage), and so I was looking around for patterns/stuff I can use them for. I ended up finding Amigurumi , and of course the pattern I wanted uses the colors of yarns I did not already have. I ended up buying another stash of acrylic yarns in different colors. Thankfully, Zellers had it on sale. In any case, my first Amigurumi project was the Mario Bros Mushroom. I found out (too late), that I was doing the red part wrong. I crocheted from the back loop only, instead of from both loop. Hence, the "head" is taller than it's supposed to be. But since I didn't realize it until after the head was completed, I decided to leave it as it was. Mushy I gave this one to Chris, just because he wanted one. This became another addition to his "work buddies", as you can see below. Chris's "Work Buddies" But bad Chris! He made Mushy to be the bad guy (I think). Chris called this scene "

E-book Reader

I love reading. Specifically, I love reading fictions and mangas. Unfortunately, most mangas I like are not available in Canada. Fortunately, most of them are scanned and translated into English by their Japanese-reading fans. So there are lots of them online, if you know where to look for them. Having lots of manga jpgs means that I can collect the ones I like. But since they are not real books, it's kinda hard to re-read the mangas I have. I don't have a desktop, and the LCD monitor hurts my eyes once I stare at it for a long time. Knowing my addiction for books (and mangas), we did some research and decided to buy Sony Reader PRS-505 . Yup, I got the red one. The reader acts like a glossy-paper book. So even under sunshine, you can read it without difficulties (supposedly... I cannot test this with Vancouver's weather). Some people ask me why I don't buy Amazon Kindle . If you live in USA, you can search books on Amazon.com for free from anywhere (no wireless char
