As children of God, who have been redeemed and made alive unto God in Christ, we must see ourselves as more than conquerors in every situation. Please note that it doesn’t mean you will win every conflict or sail through every trial without hurt or loss. Remember the Words of Jesus in John 16:33, “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” The key in this verse isn’t about how well we will fare in this world of hardship and heartbreak; it is in knowing that, through Christ, we have the power to overcome any obstacle, weapon, or offense formed against us. Consequently, we learn to never lose sight that we have already obtained the victory in Jesus.
I read about these free blouses from a blog. Usually I don’t like to participate in this kind of giveaway. But this time, I was attracted to those lovely blouses. So I wrote in to Malaysia Online Boutique. But there are certain requirement to be fulfilled before we can participate.
First of all, a blog needs to be at least 3 months old and has regular postings. At least a post a week. The blog needs to be of decent quality too.
If you think you are qualified, then send your blog URL to Malaysia Online Boutique. Once you get their green light, you can go ahead and write about them and their giveaway.
You need to write at least 500 words before you post it. After that, write to Malaysia Online Boutique to inform them. Then they would contact the sponsor ie Irenelim Fashion and you would soon receive a free blouse from her.

I love the article, “What You Wear is What You Are.”
"Eco-friendly and organic-made garments equals to earth-loving individuals
If you’re normally seen wearing anything that is eco-friendly and organic-made, chances are people might think that you’re an environmental lover who cares about the earth and nature. This might not necessarily be the case for you but since it’s something that is positive, why not just embrace it? You’ll definitely get a positive public image, and people would instantly assume that you’re a caring individual who’s deeply passionate about planet earth and its well-being."
And I also like this article:
"Pink, polka dots, floral prints are for girly girls and sissies
The items mentioned are not strictly for women only, as there are plenty of men out there (regardless of sexual orientation) who are into them. However, there are still some narrow-minded people who think that these items belonged only to girly and feminine individuals and those who are deemed unfit to wear any of these items are viewed as an abnormal person who needs psychiatric evaluation. Although it might be rather odd, overly-quirky or even amiss to see a man in such fashion items, it’s the 21st century and anything goes nowadays."
And so much more:
But I won’t tell you all here. You just got to see for yourself. Why are you still waiting? Visit Malaysia Online Boutique now and it’s so easy to participate. I have chosen this blouse for myself. I would like to thank Malaysia Online Boutique and Irenelim Fashion in advance for this special giveaway!
I was actually speechless when my name was called out. Throughout my years I have never won anything from a lucky draw and last Saturday was my first! Happy? Excited? I think my family especially my brother was more excited than I am. Really Thank God for the early Christmas present!
Actually, I don't know how I get it, but let me share what really happened on that day.
I went for an event to support my friends who were in the Finals for the Masters of Rev Up. Then as usual there will be lucky draws an all, so you have to fill up your name, number, email and there the piece of paper from your ticket. Before that my friends and I were talking about lucky draws that all 3 of us had never won once before. And I remember telling one of my friend if he wins the iPad2, do give it to me.
So the event started, lucky draws were given out, not all at ones but after every activity there's one or two lucky draws. At one point, *try to imagine in my point of view kay* I was asking God, how nice if I get something from the lucky draws but sure no chance one, but during every draws I was actually asking and telling God, let it me my name on the piece of water, see see tak dapat, on every draws I have hopping it was my name until the very last lucky draw, the Grand prize- iPad2! In my mind, sure no hope already one but at the same time, I know with God miracle would happen and I was imagining my name on the piece of paper slides into the hands of the person who's randomly picking out names.
Suddenly! the MC said, "Wooi" *in my mind, why is he so shocked? Or is it my name? And I pretended that nothing happened*
Then the MC continues," I'm not making fun of that person but it is that person's sir name," *is it really me???? Shouldn't be la har, maybe there is another Wooi or Ooi out there, don't so perasan la, continue pretending nothing happen*
MC: and the lucky person to win an iPad2 is........... Wooi Sue Jane!!!
me: Stunt! *Wow-ed* ran and got my prize! - I was actually speechless and so... you know!!
As I woke up this morning, I was dreading to go for class but in my conscience I do know that I have to attend my class class. So I dragged myself up, get ready, took my own sweet time and off I go. While I was walking to Uni, I started recalling what happened yesterday and suddenly I started comparing and complaining about myself to God, I was having a conversation asking Him why this and that. But soon, I chose to surrender everything and uphold every single problems unto Him.
When I reached the car park, I was hoping that I could catch the shuttle bus before it leave. In my mind, I was saying to myself, "walk faster, walk faster," and another part of me saying," the bus is leaving, no point rushing, it will be an embarrassing moment for you if people in the bus saw you," so in this situation, I didn't know how to react and undecided. So what happened? I kept my phase in walking as fast as I could and as the bus was leaving, I thought to myself, "aiya, have to wait for the next bus unless he sees me." As I was approaching but still far, he stops and waved at me! I was so shocked and quickly walked faster to get into the bus. Thank God!
As I reached the other side of HELP, I saw my lecturer, greeted him and continues to walk towards the venue, but he stopped me and told me that the venue has changed. just imagine if I had not bumped into him. I would have went to the classroom waiting for no one! Thank God! He then offers to buy me breakfast as well!
After class, I went to study then CF. A friend gave me an early Christmas present! Ice cream! And it is not any ordinary ice cream but Haagen Dazs! Then I realized, after complaining the whole morning, the situation turned the other way round! I loved today so much! And in my history, I think today was the most give away and receive hugs I have ever gotten in my entire life! Suddenly felt to loved! Life's good!
How time really files especially when you're busy and not realizing that another year is coming to an end. Throughout this year, it has been really challenging for me. Struggling to pull myself together every single day from the mid of the year until now. I really don't know why things happen but I'm really much happy to see that there are loving caring people around. If you know what I'm saying, society nowadays are pretty much different in their thinking.
Well, after looking through my life and reflecting, I realize that I have grown so much in many ways. I don't know if you can see, I myself may not realize all those changes but few of them. Only our Daddy God can truly see them. I'm so much assured that He is always there backing me up although sometimes He may seem to be very far away. And by clinging on to this verse from Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future," has definitely assured me even more that all these things that happened and still on going is going to turn out right soon.
So yea, finals is next week and I think I didn't do really well this semester. All those health issues really pulled me back. Spent so much on myself regarding this. Then the thought of resting popped up into my mind so clearly. I realized that was all I need. Take it easy and trust Him.
Other than all this, one thing that I was truly happy with is to see some puzzles falling into its place. I see a clearer picture now. Thank You Lord! In all of my days, help me run and finish the race that You had set before me with Your unconditional grace, mercy and strength!
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving us Your wisdom. Lord, may I never blame You when the enemy is attacking me with something evil. Lord, please deliver me from any trace of murmuring and complaining when I am faced with trials in this life. May I instead put on the armor of God and use my faith to put the enemy to flight. May I always trust You to bring me the victory over everything the enemy tries to defeat me with. I declare that he is a defeated foe and that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises up against me in judgment, You shall prove to be wrong. I thank You for the victory in Jesus name! Amen
I just love having some time off from Campus. Who doesn't?
A working adult do need some time off as well after working 5 to 6 days per week. What more 7 days per week? Which makes no difference after all.
This weekend I was so happy to be back home! Get to see my family and dogs! Brought Hammie home as well, but now I felt lonely because I didn't bring him back to KL. Miss my doggies too. What I do loved the most was the time spent with my family! Movie marathon & outings! Not forgetting my lovely brothers and sisters in Christ as well!
*home - where you don't have to pay*
As a student, you may think life is easy going. Don't get me wrong, it is not that I regret taking up these jobs and positions in Campus. I do love what I'm doing and glad that I'm learning and growing in my spiritual walk. *reminded me of Paul* But do I have time for myself? My quiet time to journal *which I'm supposed to be doing* reflect and pray?
You may ask and say that I'm not the only one, yes I do agree and some imply that they are busy as well *but they are actually not that busy, time spent on shopping* So it all boils down to good time management! There is so much to do! I have got lots of things in my mind, things to be done but yet to be.
So these are the things that I need to keep me sane. A me time! Family time!
Tail bone - ankle - fever - diarrhea - vomiting - now tooth ache!
I don't like what's happening *I bet no one likes it too*
and I found out instead of 33 subjects, they increased to 36 subjects instead!
HELP isn't really helping but in a way squeezing money out of student's parents!
Which means 12 subjects to be done in a semester? *faints*
Shall put this aside and look at the bright side *smiles*
This verse spoke to me in a way:
"Where could i go that i could
Hide myself from You
Where could i run that You won't
Be there waiting for me"
by Planetshakers - Run into Your arms
No matter what, You'll always be be there for me, even in my darkest moment where I run and hide from the world or You, still You'll find me.. You will never let me go..
Animals do have feelings like humans do,
they need shelter, food, love, care and all the things that humans need,
when I looked into their innocent eyes,
how I do wish they could somehow communicate with us,
the pain, happy, sad moments then could be shared together with..
When my hands brushed through their furs,
I can just feel their joy in having us there to visit and to play with,
little puppies without their parents yearning for love,
but are left alone to feed themselves..
WHY do all this things happen?
Well, I'm not surprised to say that it is normal after thinking and concluding that humans themselves do abandon their children in homes, abuse, kill, murder their own child.. What more animals? If humans don't really have the heart for their own kind, what more animals? Enough said..
Animals are created by God to be taken care of..
Lord, what are you trying to tell me through today's activity?
I do know, and really going to take care of my pets well from this day onwards..
Went to visit IMU CF today, at the same time Daniel and I made a card last minute for June's early birthday present at the park near IMU. It was fun and hilarious at the same time! Cause we're running out of time and the dark clouds are coming!
June was so blur and didn't realize us in her CF! *laughs*
They had a really good topic today regarding Church Doctrines..
Finally get to catch up with Daniel & June!
Didn't really get to talk much with Grace and share our hello panda moments together..
Tomorrow we will be visiting SPCA for our LLS project. It will be my very first time visiting SPCA. I don't know why most of the time I do get group mates that needs to be pushed and ordered to do things..
Yes! We had it today!
Thank God that everything went smoothly except it started late and ended late.
Other than that, it was Good!
Shooting went well today,
- SPCA on Saturday for group project
- LLS report
- have to make some slight changes for my Graphic Design and
- resubmit my dvd,
- edit the 30seconds advertisement,
- story board

- prepare prayer walk for CF Friday
Shall settle them one by one and after that more assignments to be settled!
God, grant me the strength, ideas, creativity and commitment of group members Lord!!
I thought I did what's right, I thought I had the answers, I thought I chose the surest road, But that road brought me here, So I put up a fight, And told you how to help me, Now, just when I have given up, The truth is coming clear, You know better than I, You know the way, I've let go the need to know why, For you know better than I
If this has been a test, I cannot see the reason, But maybe knowing I don't know, Is part of getting through, I try to do what's best, And faith has made it easy, To see the best thing I can do, Is put my trust in you, For you know better than I, You know the way, I've let go the need to know why, For you know better than I
I saw one cloud and thought it was the sky, I saw a bird and thought that I could follow, But it was you who taught that bird to fly, If I let you reach me, Will you teach me, For you know better than I, You know the way, I've let go the need to know why, I'll take what answers you supply, You know better than I
Don't you wish you could just remember everything that you have thought and dream of when you are day dreaming or about to sleep. Well, I do. Wish I could remember all those ideas that came randomly and spontaneously without being forced to. But when you woke up the next day, you couldn't remember a thing.. If only there is a save button in the brain, which could help a lot in exams *wink*
When I was about to post the happy events that happened last Saturday, I fell sick instead..
On Monday afternoon.
She woke up around 1 something feeling normal,
posted on Caryn's wall and ended up being called a horse-pig..
Then she felt weird,
you know the feeling when you're about to fall sick,
so she quickly drank mom's food supplement and rested..
Woke up feeling better but fever came back,
so she decided to take panadol without realizing her stomach was still empty..
Slept until 6 something,
Qien messaged that she got lost,
replied, feeling better and off they went for Steamboat! *excited* but not for long
Reached- eat and eat! went second round!
Suddenly, she felt weird and stopped and gave Qien her leftovers..
Felt so uneasy, felt like vomiting but hoping that it wouldn't happen BUT
decided to go- while walking halfway she started seeing stars *fainting in progress*
Reached the toilet,
nothing is coming out *sees more stars*
she started praying, *Thank God for the strength* didn't faint!
came out because somebody wants to use the toilet,
went to wash her hands then she thinks that IT was going to come out soon
BUT the girls toilet was occupied,
terpaksa masuk guys toilet, said sorry to a lady *i wonder why cuz she's not a guy*
Then IT all came out- all the food she just ate, wasted..
dislike the few seconds of not being able to breath too!
in the process of it, she got lots of cold sweats all over!
felt better, came out guys were waiting *too numb to feel shy*
washed hands and went back to the table..
Qien thought she had diarrhea but it was the other way round,
then PHASE 2 came, quickly went to the toilet,
and while she was on the way she started seeing stars again..
Prayed non stop and Thank God she didn't faint in the toilet,
came out, couldn't even see the pathway clearly,
cold sweat all over, *still seeing stars*
walked slowly to the table *bad condition*
Qien asked if she's okay cuz she looked so pale,
-I felt so bad that they had to leave early because of me *why?!*
troubled Qien so much, she went to get 100plus, bread and eno and she doesn't want to accept the steamboat's money plus everything!
while I was in the car with all those cold sweats and intense pain *I felt like dying*
the long minutes which turns into hours because of the intense pain, I just felt like giving up and just die..
BUT I didn't die, that's why you're reading my crappy story, sorry if i bore you..
I have never expected myself to trouble so many people this year!
Will list them down on the next post, this post is getting really long
BUT i must say,
the glimpse of half fainting/awake not realizing what was going on but knew what was going on and seeing Qien so worried made me think a lot that night..
Have you ever skipped classes before just because people are skipping?
Let me tell you, don't get pressured and influence but go! Do Not Skip!
You will never miss out on anything and there is no harm going to classes.
I have always been in this situation since primary until now.
and I am proud to say that I will stand firm on my principles *smile*
Why waste parents money by skipping classes?
So, you must be wondering why these pictures?
If you haven't watch this movie you should! It has inspired and encouraged me!
Today, I was the first to reach class again
*thought I was going to be the only student again*
We are supposed to share about the movie that we're reviewing,
I chose Soul Surfer, that explains the picture.
So while I was screening the important parts, more students came in.
What happened next?
I really Thank God that this movie impacted the students and surprisingly the lecturer as well!
Then he said he was going to screen this movie next Wednesday!
*so excited that this movie is going to impact other students as well*
- Never felt so encouraged again after watching this movie.
- Was reminded that it is not about the name, winning, competition in life.
(in this modern world, competition is so high that everyone wants to be on top)
But are you loving what you are doing?
Ever pause and think why are you doing what you are doing now?
- Enjoy what you love to do. *including studies*
But I missed out in blessing the campus students by paying their parking ticket.. On the bright side;
I get to bless course mates and my lecturer in Film class!
I was so tired after a busy week!
*assignments, work, presentations non-stop*
I was so tempted to skip, then I asked myself if I should go, but there's no bus to wisma block unless I take the rapid bus. So yea, I think I should go.
I'm a good student! *wink*
*I woke up in the morning feeling so sleepy,
before I leave I brush my teeth and still hesitating*
When i reached the bus stop, got to know a new HELP-ian! *Freeshie from Sabah*
Went up to class,
the room was empty *bad feeling*
and my lecturer was there all alone..
So, it is a one on one student lecturer class, good eh, it's a privilege! *right?*
At one point I thought my lecturer was crying, then I asked if he had flu *haha*
and he said yes *phew* lucky! Thank God he wasn't sulking or emo-ing..
Class ended at 9.30am and we chat a little,
gave him a biscuit because he hasn't had his breakfast yet.
Then he told me that he couldn't understand why students skip classes.*well*
- I didn't regret going class
- if i didn't go, I would either still be sleeping right now or probably just woke up
- bumped into Jenny and had Subway with her *she left earlier*
- I have more time! Did my laundry and my time with Him!
* would like to elaborate more*
I realize that I wrote in my schedule, if my ankle pain persist, I will take an X-ray. This was on Tuesday, and the very next day I received a message from my Pastor, asking if she could bring me to the hospital to check. I didn't realize this until I look back on my daily reflections!! I was so AMAZE! Thank God for a caring Pastor! and I really do admire people with a servant heart! Including Dr Low!
- i ♥ my bible study group!
- had ICE-CREAM!
- S.A.D Day brighten up my day!!
*Staff Appreciation Day*
The feeling of appreciating and experiencing people being appreciated made me happy! By looking at their faces just Wow-ed me. We gave 2 packs of coffee and a note in a plastic, it is something small but touched life! *happy*
Bad things that happened;
- last minute assignments
- last minute work
- sleepless nights
- nothing else to write
*or maybe i didn't write them in during my reflections*
haha! Rejoice in the Lord always! Philippians 4:4
All in all, if you take the time to reflect your daily life, there are more happier things in life than sad things. People tend to forget happy moments but grief even more when it is only one problem. So learn to notice good things that happened in your life, forget and forgive things that hurt you.
Lastly, I was rewarded with panda eyes! *laugh*
Random- Just now I had hello panda with panda eyes!
I am wondering why I'm here despite finishing my assignment.
Words just don't flow out smoothly anymore!! Help!!
I keep forgetting words, words that I once knew and used.
But now it is no longer there anymore.
I shall say that I've gone rusty after my Semester break.
Bad news for me. So how to write a report?
L O S T..
- I have to finish up 18 designs (im bad in designing)
- Another 2 more assignments (words don't flow)
- 10 minutes of short film (love it but..)
Yes yes! I know I shouldn't be complaining. But as humans, you know, we need someone to hear us out.
Things hasn't been easy for me, because sometimes you just have to pop up into my mind! It is not easy! It's distracting! I miss you! How to focus when my heart isn't there anymore.
See, life is a struggle. You will never learn to appreciate someone until they slipped away. Humans..
But today I'm reminded to appreciate people around me. It is by nature that humans don't really bother appreciating one another until one dies. RIP Steve Jobs.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
Dear child, i watch you laboring and fretting and anxiously striving to achieve things for me and my kingdom. Hear me.
Your work is not my primary concern. Your work is now, has always been, and always will be secondary to your relationship with me.
What you do will flow out of your relationship with me as irrigation streams flow out of a deep, clear powerful river. The river (the relationship) will set your motives and supply your strength. Then your work will flow forth to honor me.
Any time you allow your work to come ahead of your relationship with me, you risk working against me and my purposes. Draw near to me and rest. Seek my will at every small turn. Listen for my voice. Be filled with my Spirit. Then work with joy and abandon! - The source of your power, God.
(Postcards from Heaven by Claire Cloninger)
Got this from Divinia's facebook note *smiles*
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
This morning I am reminded that beyond my academic pursuits, and the tussle we have over our grades, we are called to make a difference in the lives of the needy around us using the gifts and the education we have been given.
I pray that the education we have been blessed with and that we so take for granted will be used by God to bring the light of Jesus into the world.
Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried;
Quietly, patiently, lovingly, God replied.
I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate . . .
And the Master so gently said,"Wait."
"Wait? You say wait?" my indignant reply.
"Lord, I need answers, I need to know why!
"Is your hand shortened? Or have you not heard?
By faith I have asked, and I'm claiming your Word.
My future and all to which I relate,
Hangs in the balance, and you tell me to Wait?"
I'm needing a 'yes,' a go-ahead sign.
Or even a 'no,' to which I'll resign.
You promised, dear Lord, that if we believe,
We need but to ask, and we shall receive.
Lord, I've been asking, and this is my cry:
I'm weary of asking! I need a reply.
Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate,
As my Master replied again, "Wait."
So I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut,
And grumbled to God, "So, I'm waiting . . . for what?"
He seemed then to kneel, and His eyes met with mine . . .
And He tenderly said, "I could give you a sign.
I could shake the heavens and darken the sun.
I could raise the dead and cause mountains to run.
I could give all you seek and pleased you would be.
You'd have what you want, but you wouldn't know Me.
You'd not know the depth of My love for each saint.
You'd not know the power that I give to the faint.
You'd not learn to see through clouds of despair;
You'd not learn to trust just by knowing I'm there.
You'd not know the joy of resting in Me,
When darkness and silence are all you can see.
You'd never experience the fullness of love,
When the peace of My spirit descends like a dove.
You would know that I give, and I save, for a start,
But you'd not know the depth of the beat of My heart.
The glow of My comfort late into the night,
The faith that I give when you walk without sight.
The depth that's beyond getting just what you ask,
From an infinite God who makes what you have last.
You'd never know should your pain quickly flee,
What it means that My grace is sufficient for thee.
Yes, your dearest dreams overnight would come true,
But oh, the loss if I lost what I'm doing in you.
So, be silent, my child, and in time you will see,
That the greatest of gifts is to truly know me.
And though oft My answers seem terribly late,
My most precious answer of all is still "WAIT".
I've never thought the day would come,
yes I've thought of it before but I never knew it would happen when I'm away,
I was late and why didn't you wait for me before you left
and the decision,
I'm glad that I've made the right decision to come back,
even when you're gone at least I get to see you for the last time and bury you..
You've been a very loyal and faithful friend I've ever had in my life..
I miss you,
miss you so bad..

Sometimes if you don't go through it, you will never understand how it feels like.
True? For me it is.
I can never understand how it feels like to lose somebody you loved most.
I don't know how is it feels like to be on the edge of losing a life.
No shelter above my head, not enough money for school.
Of course by common sense you would roughly know how it feels like BUT you don't know what they have to go through in life.
During my teenage years, *gosh I sound old* I used to not understand how pain is pain for just a sprained ankle. How can it happen? So clumsy lar this people! Until recently, I sprained my own ankle *talk somore la*
It is not that I purposely sprained myself to feel how it feels like but it just happened in a few seconds! The next moment you are on the floor in pain and you couldn't move at all! Because the pain is really intense!
After that day onwards, I understand how people with leg injuries felt. Not just sprains but all kinds of it that is leg related! Their sufferings, difficulties in changing, bathing, putting medicine, pain, inconvenient, you need help but you don't ask for help, and the worst part was i couldn't squat! When i reached KL back to my place, I didn't remember that the toilet is a squatting toilet until nature call! WOW! I can tell you! I think Constipation is not that bad after all *laughs*
People walk so fast and they leave you behind, because you walk too slow..
How many will actually wait for you? *I don't mean everyone but some, wink*
Humans, see how ignorant they can be, sometimes it is not that they are ignorant but they take things lightly because they are NOT aware of the situations. The thought wasn't in my mind until I experience myself, what these people really need..
So the next time you see anyone with crutches, bandages, sprains, anything related to leg injuries, don't just walk away because they say it's okay after you offered your help, stay and help, walk side by side is good enough *smiles*

The slave therefore falling down, prostrated himself before him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will repay you everything.' And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt.
( Matthew 18:23-35)
If you`re a follower of Jesus, the Holy Spirit is in your life and He has given you spiritual gifts. One day, the Bible says, we`re going to stand before God and have the opportunity to hear the God of the universe say to us:
It`s worth spending some time thinking about that moment. Think about the God who made you, the God of the universe, looking you in the eye saying:
Well done! Do you want to live for that? I want to be faithful to God`s calling in my life. I want to develop the gifts that He has given to me to the fullest extent that I can. I want to serve. I want to give with the things that He has given to me. I want to encourage other people and cheer them on.

Thus it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.
( Matthew 18:12)
What woman, if she has ten silver coins and loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?

Why, do you always do this to me?
Why, couldn't you just see through me?
How come, you act like this
Like you just don't care at all
Do you expect me to believe I was the only one to fall?
I want to share this video where I got the lyrics from *smiles*
I know you won't be reading this but,
is boasting and ego something that you have to show?
Those lyrics up there are for you!
I know you cared but why pretend you don't?
Don't act cause I can see it in your eyes!
Just ask me and tell me what you're thinking!
Please don't just walk away and pretend nothing happened the next day..
This song has been playing in my mind non stop!
Learned this song from EARC..
Hope you enjoy it as well! *Grins*
