The puppies are down to four now. 4 of them have departed for a whole new adventure. A little painful, but at least they're in safe hands. We gave them away to the breeder who helped lucy get pregnant by introducing her to some male dobermans.
COPA IBA was yesterday. We left church early in the morning and reached the competetion venue in Klang at 8:00. There was a a welcoming speech, then a short gospel message. Then, the competition began.
The senior and junior captainball teams were top in the group stages. We then moved on to the quarterfinals. Unfortunately, the seniors lost in the quarters to Bangsar. The juniors however, won TTDI (the previous champs) to move on to the semis. However, they lost in the semis to PJGH. It was a good run for us, and we were quite dissapointed that we didn't manage to win the competition. What added to the dissapointment was that the senior team won the eventual champions, Agape Chapel in the group stages (and the score was quite flattering!).
As for our futsal teams, SSGC A advanced to the quarters but lost. SSGC B didn't manage to qualify for the quarters but played for the plate and won it. All in all, COPA IBA 2007 was really fun and I finally managed to taste what its like to compete in COPA IBA after so many years of not being able to participate. Hopefully, next year we would do better than this year and get a taste of victory.
OCF Malaysia has finally had its first summer OCF meeting. We had it at my place last Wednesday and we had a short time of worhsip and then a small bible study on Daniel 1. It was really nice to meet up with the other fellow OCFers but most of them couldn't make it as LSE's results came out the same day and many opted to be at home to witness such a memorable event. Although only 4 of us were present, but we still had a good time. Hopefully our next meeting would not clash with anyone's schedules.
I've discovered that teaching is a really hard job. It requires the patience, enthusiasm and focus that I feel I do not possess. 2 weeks into the job and I'm already feeling discouraged at the feedback I'm receiving. I guess it takes a while to get them to respond. Let me qoute Guat Eu: "Its too soon to reap what you sow. You've gotta sow a little longer." Hopefully she's right about this.
David has just left for Kuching on Wednesday for his housemanship but he'll be back in August for his convocation. I guess home will be a little quiter than usual with him gone. Hopefully my parents will be able to handle the 'empty nest syndrome' when Markus and I return to the UK. =D
