Today was our "Impact Sunday". I left home at 1pm and was at the city by 1.45pm. Waited for our new friends before bringing them to UQ.

Waited outside the Abel Smith building as if it was a concert. And just as we expected, the hall was full and many people had to sit outside the hall. :)

The "praise and worship" session was really great. Then, there was a performance by Teen Mania. They did a great job and the message was good too.

After that, we Pastor Joshua came up and gave his sermon. Message was simple and clear. Everything ended at about 6pm.

Then, we went to Cyber-city for dinner. I had "Hokkien Fried Rice". It was nice but the sauce was too salty. Had to drink lots of water after that. We paid and left at 8.30pm.

Hokkien Fried Rice - AUD 9.90

JC, TL and I then went to Milton. We joined QUT3 for their "yumcha" session. We were there to be part of HY's birthday celebration too. Got myself a free Iced Mocha. The drink wasn't great but the fellowship was! :D

Took the bus to Kenmore Central. I dunno why I was so thirsty today. Went to 7eleven and got a drink before walking back home...

Settlers of Brisbane

Got up at 6.40am and quickly washed up. Took the bus to the city and ate my breakfast at Hungry Jacks. Then, we waited for a few of our friends before going to UQ.

Once we arrived, we searched for the field. Then, we registered and the team leaders had a briefing. I was the leader for my team and I did some homework. That helped us in the game quite a bit. Also, taking notes were quite useful.

Everyone gathering

Explaining the strategy to the new teammates


My notes

At about 9.30am, we started the game. We had to play 6 station games and 4 bonus games before we could replay the games. Upon completing each game, resources would be given. These resources will then be used to build our roads, settlements, and empires.

Sponge Surgery - We had to copy and build a model of a warrior on a horse.
Each of us only used one hand each, 5 toothpicks, and I (team leader) couldn't talk!

Yummy Mummy - We had to carry our teammate with a piece of paper across the field.
Had to stick popcorn to our cheeks with Nutella.
Upon reaching, we ate the popcorn and stuck the paper on another teammate
Objective is to get 10 pieces of paper on our teammate.

Pipeline Transport - Transport the ping pong ball around the tree
We were only given 6 newspaper pipes

Twist and Bend (Bonus Game) - Pose the word "SETTLERS" in front of Steele Building


I really enjoyed it because the games were creative and it also made us use our brains. Also, for the first time, I was so excited about winning. Motivating others and keeping the team excited was part of the fun too! Someone said I was the loudest in the team, and I don't deny it. XD

We were leading till the end...

Our score sheet - We completed all stations and even played "Si-so-so" again!

At about 12.30pm, the game ended and we gathered around. Collected our lunch after the special performance by Teen Mania.

After that, they announced the winners. We had 3 groups of 10 teams and my team was in Group C. We (Team 21) won the second place for our group! It's quite funny because when we knew what the prize was, we actually wanted to get second place!

10 Movie Tickets for us! :D

Then, leaders from UQ presented their gifts to RC who was overseeing UQ Sub-district. It was funny because everyone gave him funny gifts like shampoo, pillow, toilet roll, contracts, mars bars, and candles.

We left the place at 2.30pm and about 15 of us (consisting of members from QUT1, QUT3, and QUT4) went to Hazel Tea Shop. Unfortunately, the place couldn't fit all of us. So, we bought our drinks and went to MYER Center instead.

Stayed there till about 4pm before going our separate ways. I went to Indooroopilly and bought something. Dropped it a JC's house before going back home.

Waited till 7pm and we had steak, sausages and salad for dinner. Then for dessert, we had poached pear with cream. :)

After that, I cleaned up and started writing this post...

QUT4 Market Day Lifegroup (Poolside BBQ)

In the afternoon, I baked some cookies. Then at 3pm, I headed to JK's house. We bought some stuff and went to the pool area. After a while, TL and I went back to the city and escorted people.

After that, I helped cook the chicken and sausages while they played the icebreakers. They played "Hunter and Fire" and "Order". Glad everyone had fun.

The Trees and Squirrels :P

Then, we ate our dinner. There were pasta bake, hot dogs, BBQ chicken, and some cookies. Everyone enjoyed dinner too.

Everyone ready for dinner!

Later, we took a group photo and played the "Mystery Passing" game. Then, we had some announcements and sang 2 songs before ending the night.

Few of us helped clean up before going back home. Got back at about 10.30pm and rested in my room...

Last Day

It was our last day of recruitment and it was quite a fruitful one. Towards the end, we used a different strategy which was quite interesting.

After that, I hung out in campus till 6pm. Went to Mad Cafe for my dinner. Ordered their Salad Chicken Fried Rice which was quite expensive but it was the only other meal I could get at that time.

Crispy Salad Chicken with Fried Rice - AUD 10.80

Later, went for class till 9pm. Took the bus home and am now in my room writing this post...

Teen Mania

Today's Market Day outreach was in KG. For the first half, I paired up with JK and talked to a few people.

After that, people from Teen Mania arrived. They are on a mission trip from USA! I joined 3 teens and we went to invite people to the our service this Sunday!

One of them really put me in awe. It's really amazing how God can use someone! After everything, we talked for a bit before they left. Will be meeting them again this Saturday.

Headed to class at 3pm. It was really boring. Everything ended at 6pm and I went to get dinner. Unfortunately, they don't have the Stunner deal anymore. :(

Had my dinner and went back home. I'm trying to complete all the outdated posts by tonight. :P

Day 2 of the Semester

Came to help CCM out in Market day today. Then at 3pm, I went to my tutorial. I went back to meet the rest of them 30 minutes later because there wasn't any tutorial.

In the end, we all went to Global Cafe and got the free drink. At about 4.45pm, everyone went to QPAC for A and E's graduation.

I didn't follow them because I had a class to attend. The super dry class ended at 7pm. Went back home and rested for the night...

Market Day

Went to GP and helped out in Market Day. Then at 1pm, I went for my class for 2 hours. As I was heading back to the booth, I met up with some of the CCM members.

A bunch of us then headeed to Hazel Tea Cafe for Bubble Tea and fellowship. I bought a "large" Milk Tea with Pearls. After spinning the wheel, I managed to get a "Free Upgrade" card.

Milk Tea with Pearl (Large) - AUD 5.50 (crazy expensive!)

Free Upgrade Voucher

All of us then played a few games with cards. First it was "Heart Attack", followed by "Swap", and finally we played "Murderer!".

At about 6pm, we all parted ways. I then took the bus home. Had dinner and used the laptop till at night...

QUT4 Goes For Service and Dinner

Went to Indooroopilly in the afternoon. Shopped around buying food before going to Church. The service was packed because many parents and some new friends joined us this week.

It was mentor-appreciation day today. I gave JC a hug and a card. :)

Later, QUT4 went out to SunnyBank Hills for dinner. It's this place called "Dining Room" which was just behind JustSoy. We ordered a 6 person set and shared among 8 of us. Food was really satisfying.

AW dropped me at the Auchenflower bus stop after dinner. I took the bus to Kenmore Central and walked home...

JY's House Warming

Made 2 portions of Apple Crumble in the afternoon. Once I was done, I took my shower and went out. Took the bus to Toowong and walked to JY's house.

It was her House-warming Party. We had a nice hotpot for dinner. Perfect for winter! To top it off, we had this special sauce called "沙茶" (Sand Tea) sauce. It was my first time trying it and I loved it a lot!

Later, we played "Monopoly Deal Transformers", "snap", and finally "Heart Attack" with the "Idiot Forfeit". It was so FUN!

Was just in time to catch the next bus home. Awesome night with QUT3!

QUT4 Orientation Lifegroup

Woke up early today and made cheesecake. Then, I got ready and left the house. Went to Roma Street Parkland Apartments. AL, JC, C and I went there to use the pool, jacuzzi, and steam room. Thanks K for letting us use the facilities! :D



Steam Room

After about 2 hours of fun, we took our showers and parted ways. I went to JK's house and helped her prepare for the lifegroup later. Then at 4.45pm, I went back to the city.

Waited for our contacts to arrive before I brought them to JK's house. It was quite embarrassing because I brought them to the wrong platform and we headed the wrong direction. Wasted some time there but luckily everyone wasn't too upset.

Our 'Taco Night' was a success! But, we overestimated and there were too much food. Despite that, everyone had fun playing the games and talking to each other.

At about 10pm, we left the place and took the bus home. Was a great night!

Day 4

Today's booth was set up in Kelvin Grove campus. Talked to a few more people there. After everything ended, TL, JK, CS and I went to Woolonggabba.

Bought stuff from Coles before going to JK's house. Then, we tested out the Taco Recipe and it was quite a success.

Went off and reached home at 7pm. Had my dinner and used the computer. Tomorrow it'll be our Orientation Lifegroup where our new friends come to join us. Can't wait!

BBQ in SouthBank

It was another day of reaching out. After that, I met up J and had our mentoring session. Then, I went to the city and bought some stuff.

Walked over to SouthBank and joined a few friends for BBQ by the park. Everyone brought food and we started cooking.

Electric Stove


Later, we started playing a few games which was really fun and awesome! Played "Black Magic", "Around the world in 80 days", "Cow, Alien, Tiger", "Samson, Delilah, Bear" and "What time is it".

Few hours later, we packed up and went back home...

Day 2

Today was quiet compared to yesterday. And, I tried chatting with people instead of selling them the membership. It was a good day.

Later, I stayed in the library and used the computer. Searched up some ideas for icebreakers and also read some articles till about 5.30pm.

Then, I went to the city for dinner. To my surprise, the pasta shop isn't there anymore. I guess I won't have 4 dollar pasta anymore. Bought a box of assorted sushi for dinner.

Sushi - AUD 5.00

After that, I headed to Roma Street Parkland Apartments for the sub-district prayer meeting. Had a great time of prayer with QUT1, QUT2, QUT3 and QUT4. :D

Later, I took the bus home and got back by 10pm. Gonna rest now. Night...

Semester 2 Orientation

Woke up early and had my breakfast. Cleaned up and went to QUT. Most of us CCM members were busy inviting the new people to our lifegroups and also promoting our club.

Later, I went back home and rested for the rest of the day. Tomorrow will be another day of reaching out. Night...

Sunday, July 17, 2011


Was at UQ by 11.15am today. Waited for the others to arrive before going for "Orientation Briefing". After that, we went to Pizza Caffe for lunch. 6 of us shared 4 pizzas. It was really delicious!

After that, we went for the pre-service prayer, followed by the afternoon service. It all ended at 5.45pm and we helped to pack up.

Then, 5 of from QUT4 went to Ajisen Ramen for dinner. Because it was only 5 of us, we didn't have to waste a lot of time waiting for people. By 8pm, we finished our dinner!

We said goodbye to each other and went our separate ways. I got back by 9.10pm and took my shower.

Tomorrow will be the first day of Sem2 orientation. I will be helping CCM out and I'm excited! :)

Was really relaxing today. All I did was play Sims and watch Naruto. Think this is the last time I can do it. From tomorrow onwards, I'd be busy busy busy! :)

QUT4 First Lifegroup

Stayed home in the morning and prepared some food at noon. Then, I took the 4.14pm bus to J's place. It was our first QUT4 Lifegroup.


Though it was only 9 of us, I'm sure everyone enjoyed our night. There were many laughters and great moments. We played the "Viking" game and danced the "Macarena". :D

I cooked Corned Beef coasted with Eggs

After S's impartation, we had a photo-session. It was really fun as we tried a few poses. :P

QUT4 Fierce-looking Pioneers (we are actually very friendly)



S sent me home again so I was home at 10.15pm. Uploaded some pictures and used the laptop for the night...

Thursday, July 14, 2011


Didn't do much today. Was alternating between Naruto, Sims, the Bible, and Facebook. It is by far the most unproductive day during my holidays. For dinner, we had spaghetti. Can't wait for tomorrow!

Wednesday, July 13, 2011


Made cupcakes in the morning till noon. It was a new recipe and it didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to bed. Looked quite good though.

Later, I went to Indooroopilly and bought some stuff. Then, I went to J's house and gave him some cupcakes.

Got back home just in time for dinner. Cleaned up and use the laptop till now...

Extra Extra

Stayed at home in the morning and helped assemble the new daybed. Later, I had Hokkien Noodles for lunch.

At about 5pm, I left home and took the bus to Woolongabba. Was just in time for "Touching Heaven Touching Deep (Extra)".

I thought it was just a name. But the prayer went on till 10.45pm! It was a great time of prayer but we got slightly tired after 2 sessions.

Then, all of us went back home. I got back at 12.10am and rested for the night...

Catching Up

Got up at 10am and did my laundry. Had breakfast and cleaned up. Then, I took my shower and did my quiet time. Went through the previous days' material.

Then, I finished the book of "Job" and read another chapter of "Purpose Driven Life". Later, I also wrote about another 3 pages of stuff on my journal.

After that, I started writing my blog posts for last week. I finally covered all the missing days after few hours. I kinda like it this way because now only the highlights are written.

Had homemade Hokkien Noodles for dinner. And for dessert, D and I made Apple Crumble. I accidentally left the apples to boil for too long and they ended up all soft. Everyone still enjoyed it though. :P

I'm gonna end this post and start writing for the 3 days of my camp. Bye...

CCM Got Talent

Got up at 8am and quickly washed up. Headed to the dining hall for breakfast. After that, we did our quiet time before going in for our Sunday Service. The service was good.

Later, we hurried to get ready for CCM Got Talent. Us guys put on the 70s Chinese Mobster look with the help of lots of gel! It was really fun.

When it was our turn, we did a smashing performance. Although I screwed up one dance move, many people enjoyed our dance. Plus, we won 3rd place! :D

QUT3 presents: Unidus Mambo

QUT3 - 3rd Place

Besides that, they also announce the winners for the team games. And we were surprised that Team 5 won 3rd place too! :D

Team 5 - 3rd Place!

After everything ended, each team were assigned to clean up an area. Team 5 and some others were asked to clean up the dining area.

Then, we went back to our rooms and cleaned up. Later, we checked-out and went back to the city. TL, JY and I sat in G's car.

We went to Cybercity in Fortitude Valley. Had a great dinner with the people of QUT3. It'll probably be the last dinner with them. Next week onwards, it'll be QUT4.

After dinner, TL, E, S and I took the bus back to the city. I quickly ran to Queen Street Bus Station and got on another bus.

Was home by 9.30pm and sorted out my stuff till about 10pm. Showered and retired in my room for the rest of the night...
