Walk Through The Journal Of Life

Is it important to journal? I really don’t know. It is kinda nice though. Because when the time comes, you get to look back at the silly things you’ve said, done, or been through. And you get to ask the hard question of whether you’ve grown. And you also get to be thankful to people and more importantly to God for helping you through, and being there all the way.

I’ve blogged for almost 9 years now. I don’t blog every day. Or every week. Or even every month. I’ve skipped a few months. If you scroll down on the right side, I have my previous blog posts arranged by month and year. And I counted, that’s 91 months of blogging right there. This post will be post number 554. I think. It’s been a great journey.

It’s super funny to read back on my old posts. And it’s nice to remember the glory days of blogging. Before Facebook, blogging was like the in thing. And hey, I’m so thankful that I saved all my posts from Xanga, because they closed down.

Sad thing is, that we post so much on Facebook, but we won’t be able to retrieve what we said. It’s like, we don’t have to take our words seriously on Facebook or Twitter. And when we do want to take it seriously, it’s really hard to find it back next time. That’s one of the most appreciative things I have about having a blog or website.

Here’s to blogging and to encouraging others to blog more too.

Blood Sacrifice

I notice that my visitor count isn’t as high as it used to be. Maybe there’s just a lot of nice blogs out there to read. Maybe people think it’s a pain to read blogs overall.

I haven’t updated too much in a while. And they aren’t really too deep thinking or things that stir your thought too much. So I actually don’t expect much traffic here.

We could keep it at that. It’s not like this is a fashion blog or a sports or news blog. It’s just my life. And ‘Aaron’ isn’t really a category for blogging or social entertainment. So this blog is just for you people who are interested in my life.


I overheard this conversation I was involved in yesterday (it was held in Bahasa Malaysia):

Guy: Isn’t she pretty?

Lady at counter: Yes she is. Why haven’t you asked her to be your girlfriend?


I couldn’t help but laugh at him inside.

Have any of you seen Inside Out yet? The new Pixar movie. I want to!

Oh yeah, Mission Impossible is out too, if I’m not mistaken.

Oh and I heard that Channing Tatum may quit from doing the Gambit movie.

Oh and I recently added Buttersafe into my list of bookmarks at work. So I have something to relax my mind before I have to dive back in to work.

Leviticus 17:11

 for the life of the body is in its blood. I have given you the blood on the altar to purify you, making you right with the Lord. It is the blood, given in exchange for a life, that makes purification possible.

Get A Life


I love it when I know about friends who blog. It’s exciting. It’s special. It’s abnormal. It makes me happy.

We’re constantly bombarded with status updates, shares, likes, videos, pics, game requests, tweets, instant messages, ads, and so on. But we end up not remembering anything we’ve interacted with. Or, we can remember what we did (like liking a pic on FB), but not remember who we interacted with (not remembering who posted the pic). Information Information Noise Noise… What a failed era we live in.

But blog posts are pretty different. It takes time and effort to read and to write. Just like actually meeting a friend, both will sacrifice. It’s also pretty intimate. Kinda. If you really think about it.

Anyway, since I’m encouraging people to blog, I’m gonna give some advice to those who are afraid they will get writer’s block. For those of you who don’t know what a writer’s block is, here it is: “the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.” That’s from googling ‘writer’s block define’. Haha.

So let me say this: I’ve experienced writers block A LOT, but have never really had a problem with it. I’m usually pushy enough to just blog whatever is on my mind without worrying about the end result or the quality of the blog posts. But that’s not my advice.

Advice number 1. Go do something with your life. Love someone. Appreciate someone. Call your parents. Meet up old friends. Meet up best friends. Say something unusual. Say something amusing. Say something positive. Cook. Learn to cook. Eat breakfast. Learn to skate. Jog. Visit the beach. Visit the zoo. Join a class. Learn new puzzle games. Make friends. Make more friends. Show kindness to a stranger. Adopt a pet. Go to church. Pray more. Appreciate nature. Appreciate silence. Listen to a new genre of music. Learn to play the ukulele. Play in the playground. Get a job. Dress up. Use deodorant. Make a to-do-list. Read a book. Sleep early. I’m sure you know about other things you need to do or start doing. Do it. In other words: get a life.

You’ll see that as you experience different things, ideas come easy no matter what type of blogger you are.

I only really have one advice, so that was it.

Cheerio & see ya next time.

Ini Hari Buffday Danielle

There’s this girl in my life. I’ve known her for a long time. She’s awesome. She’s also littered all over my blog. Like, if you click that link, you’ll see I mentioned her on blog posts dating all the way back to 2007. Mannnnn…… I’m old.

It’s her birthday today. And I’mma gonna do a little shout out for her.

Hey Danielle Burung Hantu Cina. Happppppppppp. Happpppppppp. Happpppppppy birthday to youuuu~ And you and you and you and youuuuuuuuuuuu. You will never ever be forgottennnnnnnnnnn ~ And my attempt at poetry failed~

The Lord gives his people strength.  The Lord blesses them with peace.

Therefore, peace out.

Save As Draft

The problem with saving a blog post as draft is that by the time I get back to it, I can’t get back to it. I lose the flow, the original inspiration, the planned conclusion, even the emotion behind it. I have a few drafts saved so far. I can’t actually remember from my blogging experience that I’ve actually continued a draft. If I have, it was probably from the day before. Not, say, a week or more. I usually finish my blogs. Rarely I have to save as draft. Currently, searching through my drafts, I only have less than five that I’ve actually started on but had to leave it for whatever reason.

Oh well.

Conclusion (that can be related to life): Finish what you started.

Let’s Not Talk About Girls

Justin shared this on FB. I think it’s really funny. “A shepherd was out in the field with his sheep and counted 99 of them, but when he rounded them up, he had 100.” It’s a maths joke too.

My parents filled up my petrol just cuz I let them use my car. Thank you! This was a huge relief for me because I was getting worried about how I was going to fill it up. My parents are better than yours.

Remember when I tried to find apps to update my WordPress on my Nokia Lumia phone? Well, conclusion is: I don’t like any of the apps I’ve found. So I deleted them and spent my time playing mind games and reading Marvel Comics.

On another note, I promised myself to update every night that I’m at home (when I’m not out). And, it’s been going good so far. I have another two blogs that I’m also trying to redesign and start writing posts in. Been kinda fun. But difficult.

Found an online Christian radio station today. It has my type of music. Rock & Hip Hop. YES! It sounds good btw. Real good. It’s called NGEN radio. Real good for rocking out, doing homework, writing blogs, facebooking, and working out yeah!


Alrighty then, that’s the end of my ‘no girls’ update. See ya next time. Whazzahhhhhhh

A Hello

One hello to you. One more tomorrow. Each time you visit, you’ll get one.

It’s 1:11am right now. Not like you wanted to know that haha.

Anyways, just wanted to shout out to my readers. That’s you bro. Or.. Female-bro… Thanks for keeping this blog alive with footprints. It’s like less than five per day. But who cares? I just need a few. You. Thanks for being patient. Especially now that i blog alot less.

I promise to update more often. I notice i work well answering problems. So ask me something. I love discussing attitude, character, relationship, media, bible. Stuff like that. Just ask me.

I’ve also been up to some new blogs. Two fiction blogs. One intended for mini stories. One for more serious fiction. About me and the spiritual state of mankind. Written by a demon to another demon. A rip off of The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis. Haha. Of course, we’ll have to see how it goes. Seeing as i can’t even keep up with one blog. Adding two more may not be such a good idea.

That’s a short update for you readers. I love you. Have a good night.

Trying New Things

Last week I tried to memorise three verses from the bible (struggling on the third one). Let’s test my work so far: Romans 12:1 I beseech you, therefore, brethren, submit your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable sacrifice. Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the patterns of this world any longer, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will. Romans 12:3… Something like, For by grace given me I say unto you, do not think yourself more highly than you ought, but think of yourself with humility and judgement…? Oh man, I’m sorry. I’m pretty sure that was a bad attempt on all three verses! But I must strive on! Memorising has been a blessing to me so far. Anyways my plan is to memorise the WHOLE CHAPTER 12 of the book of Romans. So please hold me accountable to this. Thankeeeee

Also, I’ve been thinking, maybe I should start writing stories. Like fiction. My head is full of ideas and impossible situations, I wonder how they’d look in an organised, logical, worded paragraph. I’m probably gonna fail so hard haha. But I want to give it a try. I’ll start a new blog for it though, so that it doesn’t clash with things I actually want to share with you guys. I love you all.

Btw, what do you think my new story blog should be called? (I’ve tried doctordragonfly but that blog domain has been taken. noooooooo)

RSS Feeds + Random Thoughts


For those of you who hasn’t fully realised it yet, it’s October. Beginning of the 4th quarter of 2013. Congratulations for those of you who have survived with me so far.


Anyways, first thing I’d like to rant about today is my WordPress RSS feed reader. For your information, an RSS feed is where I can follow updates by blogs, websites, or news, or whatever.

rss-buttonsSo, I use my WordPress Reader. All new posts or updates from blogs and websites I follow are supposed to appear on it. But I tell you, it’s slow. What I mean by that is that, 1st of all, it doesn’t appear immediately when updated. That’s actually okay. I don’t really mind as much. Except that some posts get MISSED! And then appear later on. Which means, yesterday I’ve scrolled through and read through my updates, let’s say I see 5 blog posts. But today, when I open my reader, I noticed that I’ve missed TWO posts. So there were supposed to be SEVEN posts yesterday. That’s a real inconvenience, since I’ll have to scroll through previous days just to see if I’ve missed some feeds. GOSH. WordPress, please create a more powerful reader tool. Thank you.



Secondly, I’d like to update you about my job status. Looking for a job is easy. I have lots of places resources to find out who’s looking for suitable candidates to fill up vacancies. Applying is a lot of work, but not a problem. No, the problem is that companies are not replying me! They aren’t even telling me if I failed to get the job! Come on. But keep praying for me people. Thanks. I believe God has a good plan for me.



Next, I shall talk about a nightmare I had. It wasn’t much of a nightmare, more like a scary dream. But yet it wasn’t really a scary dream, just a scary type of dream. Get my drift? It was about a trip. To the beach? (I put a question mark because my dreams are full of question marks. I have no idea why or what things are in my dream LOL.) I think it was a rocky / sandy / cave-y sort of beach. Yeah, there were caves. I think we camped in one. LOL. Hmmm… come to think of it, I think we started out as a normal camp. We were camping in wooden houses. And we went to the beach. And then camped there. In a cave. There were a lot of us. Youth + teenagers. It was fun, enjoying the view and the sand. Then came this girl, she surprised me, because she wasn’t supposed to be around town. Oh yeah, she was a friend of mine. Let’s name her Ms. So Ms came, and she didn’t say hi or wave at us friends. She walked pass us, straight to the back to a girl, who in real life is not close to her at all (LOL). And they hugged and talked. I felt bad. I didn’t like being rejected. LOL. Okay anyways, so I had some time to talk to her personally. I was like hey I missed you, thanks for coming. And she said something like we’re not really friends anymore, and used a really really bad metaphor, something about a plate (which I only realised DIDN’T MAKE ANY SENSE when I woke up, but in the dream it felt like a sword cutting through my heart). So I went to the nearest bookstore (yes a bookstore on the beach), and sat down and was emo. That’s the whole drama of my dream hahahaha. It’s the type of dream I hate the most because I get worked up emotionally when I wake up, but realise it’s a stupid nonsensical dream, and then I hate myself for getting worked up emotionally on such nonsense.

Anyways, do you have such dreams? Gosh am I weird?
