i don't know if you are reading or watching the news at all, but being in East Asia (Taiwan) i am VERY aware of what happened a few days ago, tsunamies attacked a few countries and many people are dead .. it also caused many people to rethink their life (including mine) and their choices ... if you still don't know what i am talking about go to http://www.cnn.com and read the latest news ... and being in the Pacific Rim made me even more nervous .. anyways ... please pray for Gospel opportunities here in the Pacific Rim .. and let God be the HOPE and PEACE for the people.

take care y'all

12/23 - 12/25

12/22 - Wednesday
~ we touched down in Taipei International Airport around 11.00 pm local time (9 am CST) , the flight from Tokyo to Taipei was fine except my TV screen was broke, so i didn't get a chance to watch the movies i wanted to , i just slept for 4 hours . So we got the local bus and ride home , that ride was another 2.5 hours .. yeap .. boring, yes. So we got back into Tai Chung (where my parents live) around 1.30 am in the morning .. and oh i got off at the wrong stop too .. my parents came pick us up later on .. and treated us dinner .. yeah .. Taiwan is pretty much a 24/7 country , there are shops opened and food sold every hr of the day .. then we went home and slept. i love my parents' condo .. i'll show y'all pix of it later ..

12/23 - Thursday
~ woke up early in the morning and travelled with my parents and sister to Tai Bao, a town where my parents teach some college classes and ministered at the local church ... so we went there,
the church building is very nice, it's a five stories condo (i'll show y'all pix) ... and we had some good food .. later on this day .. we went on to my parents' campus and shared our lives with their students .. i was "little" shy ... we also sang some praise and worship songs .. another guy from the church shared his testimony .. and that was AWESOME !

12/24 -Friday
~ woke up early in the morning again .. this is because of those annoying rooster .. um ..
it's great to hang out with my dad :o) .. had some good food again .. especially breakfast,
i love the breakfast in Taiwan .. not so much lunch or dinner .. so if i can eat breakfast for the whole entire day, i am happy ! so ... later on this day .. we had some kids at the church, we sang some carols .. and taught them some english .. and that was fun .. i was dead tired .. and shy.
so i went to bed a little past 11 pm.

~ Christmas Day , no SNOW (ppl in dallas,houston .. congrats for the white christmas) , no gifts, no Santa , no ... well , yes to Christmas music since we can stream that thru Napster .. we did some packing for my parents since they are actually leaving the church in Tai Bao and moving to minister a church in Tai Chung (where they currently lives) ... so we travelled back to Tai Chung again ...
i can't believe my parents drove like this every single week .. they will leave Tai Chung on Wednesday and then leave Tai Bao on Sunday night .. anyways .. we visited my dad's new church in Tai Chung , the people there are awesome (esp. the youth) .. anyways .. we had a Christmas celebration at the church .. that was fun .. again .. (i am still "little" shy to talk to people) ...
we then went to one of the local night market .. there were just SWARM of people .. i meant LOTS and LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of people .. ... then we went home and i slept.

12/21 and 12/22

Here's the blog for my trip to Taiwan.

Location : DFW Airport, TX

Time : 11.15 am Central Time (12/21/04)

Nini's dad, Bill, brought us to the airport this morning, Chris tagged along as well.

During the check in time, I was one of the "lucky ones" that were specially screen for security reason (that's what you get for being a minority , just j/k) … flight outta DFW was fine. I did indeed grab a newspaper before I left, nothing big and important happened yesterday … so I'll fly for 13 hours … I'll leave DFW around 11.45 am on 12/21 and I'll touched down in Tokyo around 5.30pm , 12/22/04 ....

Time : 4.14 AM Central Time, 7.14 PM Tokyo Time , 6.14 PM Taipei Time (12/22/04)
Location : Tokyo Narita International Airport

So, the flight to Tokyo was fine, except for a few minutes before landing I was having problem balanced the air pressure in my ear, so my ear was hurting. In addition to that, after flying non-stop for 13 hours, I started to feel a little bit air sick. Anyways, Tokyo Narita is a nice airport, it felt kind of weird to hear the language that I knew (besides English … LOL), and whole lot of language that I don't understand (ie. Japanese .. I need a translator .. Like … Nini … ) anyways .. All is fine. BTW American Airline has a great Jazz Radio station on board, so check that out if you ever fly AA.

Well, I'll call it quit for now, I have another 4 hour flight to Taipei then another 2 hours of Bus Ride to Tai Chung .. Uh , so I'll write more later.

I did some journaling on the plane, God must had read my prayer and poem since I am so much closer to Him (space wise .. Since I am on the air at 10000 + feet … just j/k )

It's that time again,
the time of intermission,
where people leave and go take a break,
no, i am not talking about a play,
i am talking about life,
seems like holidays are like intermission,
where people leave for somewhere familiar or unfamiliar to recharge,
to rest and to refresh,
that's what i love about intermission,
not because everyone will be gone forever,
it's just we all need some break to recover and heal the wounds in our heart,
and resume fighting and living when the intermission is over,
so pack up your bags and head out your crib,
find somewhere you like and take a break,
for it's that time again,
the time of intermission.

for this intermission i will be spending my time in Tai Chung, Taiwan with my family,
talk about unfamilliar places , i am not very familiar with Taiwan at all but i hope it's all gonna be great ! .. i'll post pixs and stories while i am over there ...

and i can be reach thru this BLOG ... and my email
which is edaniel1984 [at] gmail [dot] com

love y'all.

Playing for Keeps

Do me a favor
Would sing this to me slow?
'Cause I'm thinking it's my song
Do me a favor
Would you tell me when to let go?
'Cause I think I'm holding on
Would you do it for me?
Would you do it for me?
'Cause I'm playing for keeps
Tell me tomorrow has come
With open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on
If you say that it's time for moving on
Time for moving on
Do me a favor
Would you tell me which way's up?
'Cause I don't know where I fit
Do me a favor
Would to you tell me when to stop?
'Cause I don't know how to quit
Do me a favor 'Cause I'm playing for keeps

but there's also courage,
winners and losers,
there's also the middle-way that serves as the compromise,
but that's not always there,
and the guy that follows his heart instead of his brain
or the other way around,
now here my chance to make the choice,
would i stay or go,
get it or
let go.

i am at the crossroad,
forward or backward or stay where i am,
i don't know which step to take,
i waited here for You to come,
to come and take me away,
and if i fall and stumble,
i'll fall and stumble back into Your arms.
Up to the mountains or down to the valley,
i'll wait and i'll walk with You,
and if i slip and fall,
i'll slipped back into Your arms.

how does it feel, different from me ....

Step towards you


A morning full of worries, A noon full of anxiety , how can i go on like this , how far can i go before breaking down , how deep can i hide all my cries, how long must i wait, before i take another step towards You.

An afternoon full of cold breeze, An evening full of light wind, Here i am again at Your throne of Grace, yearning to seek Your face, yearning to hear Your voice;

A night has yet to come, but all the work has started to pile up, seems like i am earning a second just to lose another minute , how long must i wait , before i take another step towards You.

A heart that is broken, shattered in pieces yet still was hold by the strings of pride, how am i supposed to feel, felt like i am not moving forward, yet not backwards either, keep on standing on what i had, never seeking out for more of You , how long must i wait , before i take another step towards You.

Yet, i know i am a prisoner that had been set free , Your love has opened up to door of life to me, but how LORD, how am i supposed to live , teach me to walk humbly with You, teach me to guard my heart above all things .. teach me to step towards You.

Another cup of coffee, just want to taste your sweetness again Lord, the sweetness beyond the bitterness of life , the sweetness of Your love.

hmm , i wrote this poem a few months ago,
yet part of it is still reflecting where i am at in my heart ,
anyways ...

something about God's grace

here i am again, writing my blog at the beginning of another week,
last week was an "OK" week, there were some great stuff that happened in my life,
there were also some not so cool stuff that happened, anyways,
life is busy and that is for sure,
one question that i had on my mind was about God's grace vs Personal works + personal holiness,
and how one's personal holiness is important .. etc .. i was .. let's say .. confused over it .. so i asked God about it last nite .. and well .. this morning .. here's the verse my Pastor shared during his sermon, Titus 2:11-13 " For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, " .. He hit RIGHT on the target .. :-) .. it's BY and THRU God's grace that we can say "No" to un-godliness .. again .. BY and THRU God's grace .. not by our own plans or works .. well 1st if we are w/o GOD .. then any WORKS is dead .. .. , but then it's that GRACE that teaches us how to live this life .. :-) cool huh ..
well ... that's all i have,
i hope this coming week will be a good one,
and yeap i am doing a teaching in my bible study ...
don't quite sure what to teach yet .. anyways ..
maybe somewhere along the line of Legalism vs Lawlessnes vs Grace of God ...
check this sermon out by John Piper .. http://www.desiringgod.org/library/sermons/04/062704.html

another day

another day,
another tiring day,
seems like there's endless stuff to do every single day,
from homework to work to homegroup's stuff and then the social part of my life,
then of course, my spirituality too ....
i've been thinking about the "rest" that Jesus Christ was talking about
in the Bible .. the rest that God promised those who listened to Him,
that "rest" sounds REALLY good in a busy semester where i have to rush
from one event to another and another event to another ... while in between
events ... blasting off my speakers at my car or crib seems like the norm to help me
get my mind off a lot of stuff .. anyways .. (too much Top 40 music is not good either .. so
fan-friendly pop-ballard has slowly creep back into my world of music ... LOL .. stuff like
old LPs from Backstreetboys , NSync , Westlife , PlusOne .. etc) haha ...

anyways ..
another day lays ahead,
i gotta choose to live it,
or else it's gonna be another dead day of chasing and dragging.

gotta live for HIM,
gotta rest in HIM.

1st week of school,
it's the dawning of another semester,
i seemed un-interested at some point .. to many things,
just got back from summer,
and now i felt like i need another break,
ha ...
don't know why,
i guess the 1st few weeks are always stressful because
there are so many things going on ....
well ..
guess i need to believe what Jesus said,
to go to Him for His yoke is light,
anyways ..
1 Peter 5:7
is my fav. verse and it's going to cont. to be my fav. verse,
i hope i truly come to realise the meaning of that verse.

~ tech.

well . A&M lost to Utah.
and umm .. i got 2 months of Free Napster from Bestbuy,
and i am liking it !

A new beginning

1st day of school,
it's a new beginning of another school year,
nope i didn't get lost on campus this time,
nope i wasn't late for my class,
and yes the campus still seems LARGE and HUGE to me,
and yes i was STILL nervous to go back to school,
something God showed me today was i really need to step out of my comfort zone,
i know we all have comfort zones and they come in all kind of shapes and sizes,
sometimes i know how to bust that bubble but sometimes i don't,
which is something that requires a lot of God's grace and strength ..
anyways ..
a new semester,
a new vision for life ...
a new season of life ...
let's go and make a difference.


something to take note of for the 1st week of school ...
the RNC ( Repulican National Convention) in the Big Apple ...
the 1st Round of NCAA Football Games ..(A&M vs Utah)
and .. of course .... people around me (i should take note of them too :-p)

take care.

new skin

hmm.. "StarBucks" blogskin,
kinda cool huh,
i came across this at blogskins.com
and thought that it's kinda cool ..
so i decided to put it on my blog,
what do ya think ?

Lookin' forward

i'm lookin' forward to the changes in life,
cuz lookin' backwards certainly will not help,
i've thought out and planned where i wanna go,
but it's up to You ,God to lead me,
i've seen You leading me towards the other direction,
yet i've ended up in the same place,
but it was the journey that made the difference,
even when You've led me to a different place thru different route,
You've provided comfort and strength for me,
i want to trust Your leadings and ways,
it's just sometimes i am tired of walking,
here's another year,
another month,
another brand new day,
let's embark on a brand new journey,
to the place that You've destined me to be,
let's go,
and let's be.

Head Over Feet

I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it
You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was
You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault
Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service
You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault
You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience
You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long
I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now
You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

~Heart Warming song.


well , it's almost time for the NEW semester .. yay .. well .. i am excited because
i'll have all my buddies back in town .. and because there's gonna be homegroup again ...
well .. i should be excited for school too .. since i am taking some really neat classes this yr (software engineering and etc) .. something that i am really looking forward to :-)

last weekend, i went to San Antonio to visit my friend Tim with Krista,Stiv and Beth,
that was an exciting trip, we went to Fiesta Texas .. i had a BLAST .. well .. i haven't ride roller coaster for about 2 yrs .. so that was exciting !!

for the rest of this week,
i'll be at my church staff retreat...
should be a relaxing time .. and intense time at the same time because
this will be a great time to unwind and then focus again for the task ahead ...

.. well ..
some sports stuff ..

hmm .. very likely .. since Madrid is willing to pay A LOT of money .. 10 - 15 million British pounds .. yeah ...

Olympics is here.

i will remember you.

I Will Remember You (by Sarah McLachlan, Seamus Egan, and Dave Merenda)

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Remember the good times that we had?
I let them slip away from us when things got bad
How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sun
Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one
I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
I'm so tired but I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something much too deep
It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light
And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you byWeep not for the memories
And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories

will she remember me?
will i remember her?
i hope so.

note : lately i've been listenin' to some heart warming love songs .. LOL ..
like that one .. and another by Alanis called Head over feet .... and
some sad ones like Sheryl Crow's "First cut is the deepest" ... and more recent ones
like the Punk-Rock " Happy Ending " by Avril .. LOL ..
what is UP with me?

By: Backstreet Boys

I know that I, I can't believe
Just what the past has brought me
To the man I wanna be
I know that we have had some times
That we can't forget the struggle
Cause we have so far to go

I know we've changed but
Change can be so good
So let's not forget why
It's understood that

Time, look where we are and what we've been through
Time, sharing our dreams
Time, goes on and on everyday, baby
Time is what it is
Come what may (come what may)

I remember when, mom used to say
That things are getting better
And you'll soon be on your way
Remember those days
When we would sing at the drop of a dime (Oooh)
Way back when nothing mattered (Mmm, mm, mm)



So here we are(here we are)
And we'll always stay together
And through it all you know we owe it all to you, you, you , you
Time goes on and on


Time, goes on and on everyday, Time is what it is
Come what may
Come what may


a great song by the boys ..
well .. one of those great b-side songs ..
remember .. it'll get better ..
so hang in there !

my sister and i .. kert and kerry's wedding .. :-) Posted by Hello

Saturday, June 26, 2004


Here goes another week in the summer ,
i guess during the summer .. weeks go by really fast,
two more weeks then i am done with summer school,
then i'll have to adjust myself back into the 8-5
monday to friday work mode for 2 months ...
don't get me wrong i love working,
i love my job and i love hanging out at my job ,
but obviously it's different from going to school,
granted i don't have to worry about homeworks or exams,
but i do have to worry about computers .. lol ..

talking about adjusting to a full time employee life,
my friend Nick .. shared some insights about that during
my homegroup guys time .. he shared about .. the responsibilities
of a student , ie. school, work .. etc .. comparing to the responsibilities of
a MAN .. ie. family , work , social .. etc .. and how demanding it will be ..
and he pointed out a really good point about spiritual life,
if we (as students / young man w/ lotta free times) cannot discipline ourselves
to seek the LORD .. it will be harder for the days when we get older .. and have a family ..

i totally agree with him ..
so y'all .. start buildin' this relationship with God thru Christ ..
He's always there pursuing us .. it's just the matter of fact whether we are responding
to HIM or not ,
we can choose to run and drown ourselves in this world ,
or we can immerse ourselves in the truth found in the creator of this world.



have a good one ..

that's me .. in my tux !  Posted by Hello

My good friend wedding.

My good friends Kert and Kerry's wedding was awesome,
it was a very neat wedding,
very simple but full of meaningful stuff ,
the sermon was great , reception was fun and family friendly,
i had fun .. i was glad to meet with old friends and making new friends
alike, i also had fun suitin' up in a tuxedo for the wedding ( i looked cute according to cori .. :-P and i looked like a stud .. according to the guys .. esp. ben ) ..

here are some of my thoughts after the wedding,
"WOW" ...
and as i look at my life i wonder when i'll have my wedding
... LOL .. j/k ...
anyways ..
i love the meaning of marriage ..
and how it paralleled Christ marriage to the church.



Monday, June 14, 2004

again ....

well ...
2 1/2 weeks into summer school,
i am already behind keeping up with my math class's materials,
math 311 (linear algebra / multi-variable calculus) is NOT
fun especially when the prof wants the students to
make the connection between Algebra and Geometry,
well .. i m not a BIG fan of Geometry since grade schools,
that makes this class harder ( ya know vector spaces / sub-space / domain / range .. stuff like that)
anyways ..
2 midterms comin' up , one in Statistics and one in Math .... actually both in math .. LOL


my best friend wedding is this friday ...
"my best friend wedding !??!?!? "
haha ...
not really ..
well yea .. one of my good friend Kerry is gettin' married !
wow .. crazy huh ..
:-X speechless.
i'll be at the wedding as an usher ..
.. i'll remember to take some pictures this time !


oh .. ok .. Sports NEWS.
England 1 : France 2 ...
France's captain Zidane had a CRAZY day ...
he scored 2 goals in INJURY time to beat England ..
> tough LUCK ENGLAND !

NBA .. Pistons leads Lakers 3-1 .
it's OVER for the Lakers.
yay .. finally an Eastern Conf. is going to win the NBA Title (since MJ's Bulls)


A&M lost to LSU in Super Regional Baseball .. :-(



Thursday, June 10, 2004

stupid lakers defeated the pistons last night,
i am very disappointed !
anyways .. pistons should've fouled any player (esp. Shaq)
when there's 4 seconds left in the game, instead of that,
they let Kobe had a 3 pointer ... ahh ....

the series will shift back to DETRIOT tomorrow !!
yay !

go Mo-Town Bad Boys.

i'll be in Denton , North Texas for the next few days!
that should be fun !

-- gettin' outta my aggie-zone for a few days.

Rainy Day

it is raining out there ,
from moments to moments i can barely see the sun,
isn't that how life is sometimes?
we get caught in a bad weather,
and yet what we need is to see the SON .

~ have a blessed day.

Random stuff

NBA finals ~ Piston leads Lakers 1-0 ... interesting huh .. the other team that Coach Brown used to coach (76ers) .. had the same exactly AMAZING start against the Lakers a few years ago .. but they ended up losing 1-4 .. so .. it's still gonna be an interesting series .


ok .. check this out ..
Bill Board Hot 100
1) Burn, Usher
2) I Don't Wanna Know, Mario Winans Featuring Enya & P. Diddy
3) Naughty Girl, Beyonce

.. and then read the article (Single - ness) that i wrote a few days ago ..


Interesting song by Rapper/Producer Kanye West,

To the hustlas, killers, murderers, drug dealers even the strippers
To the victims of Welfare for we living in hell here hell yeah
Now hear ye hear ye want to see Thee more clearly
I know he hear me when my feet get weary
Cuz we're the almost nearly extinct
We rappers are role models we rap we don't think
I ain't here to argue about his facial features
Or here to convert atheists into believers
I'm just trying to say the way school need teachers
The way Kathie Lee needed Regis that's the way yall need Jesus
So here go my single dog radio needs this
They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus
That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes
But if I talk about God my record won't get played Huh?
Well let this take away from my spins
Which will probably take away from my ends
Then I hope this take away from my sins
And bring the day that I'm dreaming about
Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks)
The only thing that I pray is that me feet don't fail me now

.. what do u think ?

~peace out.

journey to manhood

3 weeks ago i burned the back of my hand ,
a week ago i learned how to fix my car
a week ago i sprained my ankle ... ,
the day before yesterday i learned that everything doesn't have to go my way,
yesterday i learned that someone somewhere somehow (incl. myself) will forget something important,
today i learned sometimes i am really annoying to other people too ...,
ahh .. what a journey to manhood .. ,
so what will i learn tomorrow ,
and what will i learn the DAY after tomorrow ..


welcome to life.

Welcome to existance ... " ( Switchfoot ~ Dare you to move)

Single - ness

Hard to live in the world like this,
where Usher's singing "Let is burn" and
"Can't do the right thing and move on .. gotta let it go ... " ,
and Mario Winan's singing " i don't wanna know,
and if you are playing me keep it on the low " ,
are all the single guys that desperate of a relationship,
even in one that they know it might not really work out ?
and choose to live in a lie?
i don't know, i mean i found myself in the similar situation too,
don't wanna move on , and hoping there's another chance,
maybe sometimes we do need patience,
maybe sometimes .. we do need a break from all of it ..
and let guys be guys .. and stop worrying about all these
stuff about girls.
i guess we all demanded truth, wanted truth , yet when it's
time to make the decision we rather hide behind our own imagination,
or our own expectation of what gonna happen next ..
it's always great to have a "REALITY CHECK" from someone,
truth and honesty hurts, and yeah i can testify to that,
but that's only one part of life ,
there are many other parts that we can be thankful of,
thank GOD there's a band called Switchfoot
that sing " Time is never money, life is more than cash, life is still
more than girls, more than 100 dollars bills ... "
and songs like "Hunter" from Dido that talks about freedom from relationships (unprecedented huh .. ) ...
well .. ya know ..
there's a SEASON for everything,
cherish the season you are in ( i need that myself) ...

Here's something to read on ..
Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Sports update

this weekend was full of sports events,
1st of all English FA Cup,

Man. Utd defeated Millwall in the final ,
great but .. umm ... Millwall is a Div. one team
and Man U is a Prem. team .. but it's kinda expected for Man Utd to win , no big suprises ..

NBA Conf. Finals,
Wolves over Lakers --> It's about time, but now Lakers has the home court advantage ,
Pacers over Pistons --> great game for Reggie Miller, let's keep it rollin'.

College Baseball,
Texas A&M over Texas ( A&M won the series 2-1 ),
good series for the Aggies,
good game for the Longhorns who clinched the Big 12 Title
by beating the Ags on saturday night,
both of them are moving onto NCAA tourney play and Big 12 Tourney .. so we might see them play again.

Texas over Yankess, (Texas won the series 2-1)
Yankess avoided a sweep on sunday,
but A-Rod homecomin was .... not GOOD .... not good at all,
though he had some great hits , incl. the homerun on friday nite, but Rangers was the team that pull it off ...

yea.. that's about it.

what's comin' up ?
-- NBA Conf. Preview.
-- MLS analysis ..
-- MLB stuff ..
-- UEFA Champion's League Final.

bye . for now.
check back for more sports,
check back for more stuff about GOD .. and relevant life.


p/s i should post some technical stuff too .

God is awesome

yo guys,
one sentence,
GOD is awesome,
He just made me realize how He can changes and impacts people's life,
He can made people stronger thru even tragedies and bad times,
and yes He can made people stronger thru good times , although that is a little bit harder .. (esp. on our side) ,
anyways, one thing i love about Christians .. is a transform life, it's NOT easy, i won't say i am totally transform yet because there are still struggles in my life,
but i know .. it will all be gone at the day of His return and yes .. it's comin' soon,
believe the gospel and repend guys .. :-)

alrite ..

take care y'all.

NBA.com: New Jersey Nets (2) vs. Detroit Pistons (3)

NBA.com: New Jersey Nets (2) vs. Detroit Pistons (3)
i was RIGHT !
go Detroit!

NBA playoffs

the Conference Finals IS ALMOST here,
for tonight's game .. FYI Pistons vs Nets ,
i'll love to see Pistons win.

Here are my predictions and reasons behind them,
Western Conf.

Timberwolves VS Lakers ...
interesting .. OLD Minnesota Team vs NEW Minnesota Team ...
( Lakers was Minnesota Lakers before moving to LA ) , will be an interesting series, if the LA Lakers is able to KEEEP up with their energy level and if LA Lakers "non-star" players can hit some spectacular baskets .. then i'll say LA in 6 .. on the other hand if LA plays like they played against SA .. they will likely to lose .. and if Cassell steps up BIG time ( he is already ) and KG in his MVP form, Minnesota should win in 6 ...
otherwise .. still ... Minnesota in 7

Eastern Conf.

Easy .
Pacers in 6 ... no doubt ...
because they have better players ( ie. Ron Artest, J. O'neal .. and a good coach .. (who Pistons fired last season) .. )
Let's give Reggie one more shot.

NBA Finals ?
Timberwolves in 6.

we'll see what happen tonite,
and i might change my prediction.


i am a workin' man

i just started my 8-5 job at the ITO of SFA on Texas A&M Campus,
i missed school already .. haha .. working full time is a brand new experience
