This is the Weekend After MYC

Waking up on Monday has never been so awkward, especially the Monday after the Mid Year Conference. Stepping into the office this morning, starting up the computer, and trying to synchronised my set of CVS tree to see what kind of hacks my colleagues have put in during the week. Yuk. What's that new function he put into the session management code with "HACK" as part of the function name?! It just adds another blue into my depressed mind this morning.

Later on I learnt that our Alexandria office has been broken in last week, and the thieves took 5 PC and a LCD monitor. Doh. It is not good. Fortunately they did not take our servers, which archives all our work over the past two and half years. Hmm...


This morning when I drove to work, on Botany Road I saw a Mini Cooper police car. It has the NSW blue police strip on its side. I was wondering why the NSW Police purchased Mini as police cars. According to this article, it is part of "Community Safety Team" that patrols the city CBD area. I reckon it just looks funny to have a big Aussie police fitting into a cute tiny Mini Cooper...


Last night some of the MBF people came over to my place to discuss what we are going to do with the new student welcome dinner on the coming Friday. They took funny picture of Vivian and myself, and we have to dressed up to different stage of life. The topic will be on "今生不比永生長" - helping people to think about the time difference between activities of this life and eternity. Earnest will be speaking, and please pray for this event...

Bible studies on Sunday with MBF is on 2 Thessalonians 2:16-3:13, where we see Paul's concerns for the church in Thessalonica, and how he prayed for them. It reminds me to always pray for my fellow Christians - not just those who have struggles or difficulties, but also to the others for the works of Holy Spirit in them. At the same time, I do have concerns for my group on Sunday. They are generally "older" people, i.e. young workers and young couples, and some of them have some priority problems. Vivian has been hesitated to put a new Christian in our group because she was afraid the group cannot provide good examples to her. People don't turn up to church, come late in the Bible study, and even fall into sleep (and snooze) during the Bible study. There aren't much participation, and the guys don't act as an example by leading the prayer. We finish early, and then people rushed to go home. I felt annoyed and saddened, but I don't know what I can do with this particular group on Sunday. That would be another item to pray for...


Saturday was mainly rest from the MYC. However, we did managed to wake up early to go to Yum Cha at Silver Spring near China Town.

Someone from MBF came over to chat with Vivian at night, which I was working on some pamphlets for the coming Friday activities. Over the conversation. somehow I was described by another girl in MBF as "unapproachable" or "scary". And it is probably not just from that particular person, but quite a few people felt that way. They felt that I was trying to get rid of them when they came and talk to me. They felt that I "dislike" quite a few people in the fellowship.

What should I say? By no means that I would "dislike" certain people in the fellowship. Maybe it is my eyes. I have the same eyes of my passed-away grandfather, who was a military general in Taiwan, and had eyes you don't want to look directly at. Well. That was a lame excuse. But I was wondering why people find Scott fearful and unapproachable. My personality? Maybe I just have this "don't bother me" kind of attitude. :(


That's the weekend after the MYC. Now. Life back to normal. Alien of this world.
