I want to be a soldier

Few days ago, I was reminded of my childhood ambition – i.e to be a soldier. While little girls want to be teachers, doctors, nurses, I want to shoot bad guys and defend my country. What a darling, patriotic, sweet little girl, I was.

Cita-cita saya ialah menjadi seorang askar. Saya hendak mempertahankan rakyat, negara dan martabat. Chewah… malangnya, cuma mimpi ajelah.

When I was in Form Four, I went to a student exchange camp and befriended an Indian guy from Rawang. That guy has Bollywood good looks and when he sang ‘Soldier of Fortune by Deep Purple‘, I thought I am going to have Chindian (chinese+indian) babies one day, in the far future. LOL!

Here’s part of the lyrics:

Now I feel I’m growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin’ ’round
I guess I’ll always be
A soldier of fortune
Yes, I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin’ ’round
I guess I’ll always be
A soldier of fortune

I am going to be a soldier of fortune. I will go where the wind blows (and God leads me).

A new blog came just in time to prompt me that I had blogged for 6 months. My first blog started on a very daring note – Bloggers are weirdos. I said,

I thought bloggers are weirdos who talk to themselves ‘coz they have no human friends to talk to and they are attention seekers. But heck, I lurve blogs and stalk blogs so might as well join the bunch of weirdos.

Well, here I am, six months of blogging, stepped on some toes, rubbed on many nerves, caused ruckus (and whatever shit) and yet – I am all eager to go for more. Because I have just realised that I am being true to myself, I speak from my heart and the Lord remains my anchor.

So, God guide me to speak Your Word with a touch of wit and may I always rely on You. Humble my heart, give me courage and wisdom to do Your Will. Amen.

Won’t you wish me better luck in my blogging journey ahead?
