Longed to share my experience in Europe but can't find the time. As my Psychology class has just started and assignments are due next Sunday, i really have to be more disciplined. So, I decided to sacrifice TV time to finish this sharing session, which i think is of utmost importance.
When i was studying in Boon Keng Primary School and Bendemeer Secondary years ago, i joined the choir. 4 years of secondary school was depressing for me as I've no friends and I'm in Pure Science stream, studying subjects i don't enjoy thus i didn't do well. Joining the choir brings me hope and joy! "Streets of London" used to be my favourite song!
When i named my blog Lost & Found, my initial intention was to keep my memories permanently here as i know memories will fade away but lost memories can always be found here. I wasn't a Christian then. Now, as i know His Words and sing methodist hymns, I became aware that GOD has always been beside me. Amazing Grace's "I once was lost, but now am Found" and Lost & Found theme was found in the gospel of Luke.
God is watching over us, my friend. Throughout the ten days, i experienced Holy Spirit's presence more than once. Its amazing how God works in our life journey silently but creatively. Whether you are a believer or not, I pray that my sharing will make you aware that God is omnipresent, God is real!
Singaporeans always complain about christmas lightups in orchard road, just take a look at Christmas lightup taken at Oxford Street in London, look at the lightup....nothing fantastic, right? keke. We also took things for granted.
London Big Ben
It was freezing cold that morning when i took these pictures! To my surprise, there was sun and blue skies with beautiful clouds!!! God's wonderful creation! When i left for Tower of London (just two underground stops from Westminster), the sky darkened in less than 10 mins. Friends told me London is always gloomy but i was blessed with good weather and thats why pictures taken were fantastic!
Houses of Parliament (1100 rooms!)
Westminster Abbey where Princess Diana's funeral took place and Da Vincci Code made it even more popular. There were fixed praying times and when visitors heard the announcement to pray, everyone stopped what they were doing and listened attentively to the pastor's speech for 2 minutes or so. Its like, time just come to a standstill! I don't know if my church (Kampong Kapor Methodist Church) could stand the test of time just like Westminster Abbey. You can spend hours here amazed by the architecture and sculptures.
World's largest London Eye! (no time to take a ride though)
Tower of London - 900 years old! It used to be a castle, a palace, a jail and an execution place of prisoners. However, i didn't smell blood and violence or felt uneasy as i walked around. In fact, i felt so peaceful!
River Thames's Tower Bridge. Even more beautiful than London Bridge.
