Greetings from the city of Manchester:)

i'm from UM toO..hehe( University of Manchester)

super duper sorry for this delay..i have been deprived from internet for the past week due to some connection probs in the hall i'm staying. at first i thought was my computer who is causing the prob but thank God it's not:) and yay, i finally can go online today, unexpectedly and suddenly and i dunno how and why..it's not a wireless connection, it's not the local area connection it's..God's connection..hehe, i prayed for it yesterday and woohoo, He answered me:) *fingers crossed* I might not b able to connect tomorrow. So, i better appreciate this golden opportunity.. i'm gonna update you guys about wat i was up to for the past week..It's is gonna be long LONG long...so bear with me:)
yea, arrived Manchester with this pretty lady around to settle stuff for me:) to bring me around, to cook for me, to settle my accommodation and most importantly to make noise with me, that's why i don't feel any homesick-ness coz my dear sis is here to accompany me:) one in a million sis! Awesome Adelene...
my summer vacation residence. Gonna stay here till 18th of Sept till i move again to my permanent place at St Gabriels. By then i will hav problem moving coz my stuff-BANYAK-ness. when i first arrived, my sis and i were busy moving to this room from my sis' previous place which was 10 mins walk away...both of us were like mad women, carrying stuff like that standing mirror, and pulling luggage in the middle of the road, till we gave up and called a taxi:) but it costs us a BOMB! but it's worth it coz we were so tired after moving for like 3 days!walking up and down the street under the cold wind...FREEZING..i will hav another massive move on the 18th! please pray somebody will lend a helping hand:):)
oh, rmb my pink duvet cover? i brought it all the way from KL:) my bed is the best place in my tiny little room...super comfy and warm.. PLUS blackie by my side..he must b bored staying at home..:) yea...MESSY MESSY MESSY...
Had a met up with some seniors from M104( Evelyn, Kean Foong, Emily and Kenneth) Thank God for this kind seniors. They brought us around city centre, tell us where to get cheap food and stuff So yea, we dun feel that lost at least! Oh, i met a few M102 seniors as well when i attended a church nearby called King's Church. they graduated dy and are now working in Manchester:) Friendly people as well..Anyway, the church is a charismatic church and i really enjoy the sermon. Ps. Kelvin shared smth like God is the most creative and greatest architect of all coz He builts different designs of houses in each and everyone of us:) Verse of the day was from Philippians 3:13-14 Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. Hmmm, move on Angie!
There will be a MASSIVE gathering for IMU-nians tmr night:)
