My Camel Has Arrived...

... and more are coming...
My camel took quite long to arrive because camels are not fast animal. My camel does not come from the Arab region. My camel came from South Korea. There are prophecies spoken to you but most of the time, after those prophecies were given out, it was forgotten faster than when they were given out.

Out of so many prophecies that I received, I remember this one clearly. My camel arrived at my doorstep 11 months ago but at that point of time, I did not know that it's my camel bringing what I wanted. I only see it now.

There are a few things I can talk about base on my own experience:
When the camel is meant to come to your house, no matter how hard you fought with the camel, hoping that the camel would leave, it will not leave you. God raised up a person who is a million times more strong-headed than I am. If not, my camel would have left a long time ago the first time the camel landed in my house. The camel is a total stranger whom I housed for two weeks. This is the only stranger whom I agree to house.

The camel is abstract. The camel brings a human, if you're cracking your brain, thinking about this situation. Camels do not only carry humans. Camels carry gifts. I don't need a nicely wrapped present. People will usually give mugs, books, clothes, shoes and food as gifts, I have all those already. But my camel brought me something that I really wanted, something that I didn't really pray for earnestly but it's what always coming out from my mouth.
Those who has known me for years, would know that I want to earn money while I'm asleep. When my camel introduced me to the company, I was totally reluctant to get myself involved. I did not realize she was bringing me what I truly wanted. I only saw it last month. The camel brought me a company from South Korea, bearing my name as the logo of the company. I have always been wearing my last name as a pendant, thus I was surprise to see it as a logo. My spirit made a leap in the belly. There are many people who has similar name as mine, but not everyone feels it the way I do.

I love to travel but by the style I travel, you will think that I earn a million dollar per annum. I do not. When I travel, I stop work for a month. There's no income coming in at all. And I'm not a big earner. This is how God is proving that when He blesses you, it's coming you could not afford. If you're paying for every single cent from your own pocket, you'll think that's not God's blessing but it's all about you working hard, spending on your own hard earn money. Everything is about you and your hard work, thus God is remove from the equation. South Korea has never been in my list because I do not know anyone from there so it's impossible to travel and experience living like a local. I'm going for the second time in this year itself, if it's not Jesus involved in my life, what do you call that? Sheer luck? I don't believe in luck~! If your life depends on luck, then your life is no difference than the dice thrown on the gambling table. That's rather a sad life..
A camel is a form of transportation. Therefore, when my camel arrived at my doorstep, my camel does not only drop off stuff, but it will bring me to places as well. At first I did not want to follow my camel because I did not know it's my camel, my camel was persistent enough and I relented. It's like you are made to say YES to your camel and let your camel bring you to wherever your camel wants to.

Now, my camel is bringing me to other camels. When Jesus came to this world as human, the three wise men rode on three different camels. But it did not stop there, there were many more camels bringing expensive gifts fit only for a King. Therefore, my camel does not stop here. This is also not my first camel. My first camel came many years ago but at that point of time, I have never heard of such prophesy. If you're wondering whether the first camel is still around, the answer is YES~! That's my travel buddy who took me to different countries. 

How do you communicate with your camel then? I thought that my camel should learn English so we could communicate with no hiccups. That's not the point. I put in extra effort and asked the Holy Spirit to teach me the language my camel speaks. I picked up Korean Language. I could read and write in Hangeul now but I have yet to recognize a single word of the Chinese character. This confirms that I'm not being led by wrong beliefs but everything is just right. I may have hiccups with my camel but if it's God's plan then nothing would go wrong. No one can severe off the ties that have been made.

There are those who want my type of life. The moment I mention it's Jesus and only Him can give me this and He can give it to you, too nobody believes. How funny... then don't ask.

By the way, your camel is not necessary a believer in Christ. My first camel was not but my second one is... the other camels on the way, I don't know...

Oz Day 23: Goodbye, Australia...

~ 28th November 2015 ~
We spent the rest of the day flying... from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur, from Kuala Lumpur to Penang and we went crazy eating hawker food and thinking everything was so cheap. It's that kinda feel you will have every time you're home. 
Ahhh... a bowl of noodles only for RM3.50... that's AUD1... so cheap... RM10 per plate also consider cheap because it would be AUD3 ++ only... Come back home we convert to Australian Dollar... when in Australia we convert to Malaysian Ringgit, making everything expensive.

The travel buddy was upset that I had to go home so soon. She wanted us to spend more time together. Well... maybe I should stay a little longer... It has been two years since I last see her. 

Finally, I'm done waiting but I still have one more trip from earlier this year, 2017... still pending... yet I'm embarking on another journey.

Oz Day 22: Dinner at Bridge Garden...

~ 27th November 2015 ~
This place is run by Chinese, the waiter at that point of time was a young chap with no proper training in serving customers. The food took forever to come. I wonder how many chefs were on duty... maybe one only. The food was delicious but the service was at a tortoise pace. We were rushing to catch a James Bond movie in Glen Waverley.
When I asked the waiter what took them so long to take our orders and what took even longer for the food to come, the waiter answered through swallowed words that if we couldn't wait, we should leave. The travel buddy didn't hear the reply, but I have sharp ears for such swallowed words. Ahhh... you must be really unhappy to come all the way to Australia and be a servant boy. 
The menu was completely in Chinese and even Mr Ma could not read some of the words. I think the travel buddy and her hubby fail in Chinese Language back at home during their schooling years.
I entertained myself with the Chinese English on the wall. The saying in Chinese Language itself is beautiful but once translated into English, it sounded so wrong and awkward. There are just too many words in Chinese that cannot be translated beautifully into English. English words are not strong enough to represent those Chinese words. In conclusion, I cannot learn Chinese Language because it will completely mess up my brain. My language department section in the brain, I'm afraid, is not large enough.
These few sentences talk about missing home, where one yearns to go home but unable to due to unforeseen circumstances. Somewhere you long to go to but due to the distance, you are unable to do so. The distant is abstract in this text. You're being separated by the long distance. It's talking about going home. So, you see so many people on the road, you do not know where they are going to. They might be walking home after work but their heart yearn to go home to where their family is. 
It is very important what you place on the wall as a declaration. In this restaurant, no wonder the waiter was so unhappy serving customers, he was yearning for his hometown. Maybe the chef was slow because his heart was not in Melbourne, but in China. They are all yearning for home but the distant was just too much to bear. Even though it was just 9 hours flight away, but it's just impossible to hop onto the next plane to go home.
Why are there so many Chinese in Australia? It's opportunity to have a better future because to get a job in China, I think I will need a powerful grandfather to push me through. I will need a very strong connection to be someone just merely existing. Do they yearn to go home to be with their families? Yes, they do. The travel buddy only wants to go home but she knows it's impossible to go home. She will be jobless if she goes home. Even if she manage to find a job there, it's impossible for her to survive there as the pay will not be enough to cover the basic expenses. Do not fault them but of course, there are many inconsiderate mainlanders. They fight to survive in society until they have no sense of humanity. See the way they fought through the doors just to get milk powder, then you will understand how much they fought all their lives until they have to fight to buy milk powder in a foreign land.

Oz Day 22: The Block Arcade...

~ 27th November 2015 ~
I've been here before and here once more. A higher end place to shop in, beautiful things to look at.
After looking at these dresses, I think I'm inspired to sew again. Maybe next year when I'm free. I don't know when I will be free also.
Nothing much to talk about this place unless you have something you need to get. Maybe get a tailored suit or have a slice of cake, buy a piece of boutique dress or just get something cute to line your shelf.

Oz Day 22: Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium...

~ 27th November 2015 ~
I like sea life very much. Looking at those fish swimming here and there but I wonder whether they were happy living in fish tanks. One thing for sure was they will not die of hunger, food will be served at scheduled time. 
There were lots to see, so it's better you go there yourself. I can't put up everything here.
I think I missed Malaysian food. I was thinking of stingray curry while looking at those majestic stingrays.
When I looked at that fish, I was thinking whether it would taste good just pan frying them with soy sauce. Maybe it would taste better by just steaming. 
And wow~! That lobster~! To bake it or to grill it? Oh, no~! Hungry... hungry...
The king penguin was kinda stuck up while the small penguins were really wonderful entertainers.

Oz Day 21: Dinner at Towoo, Korean Charcoal BBQ...

~ 26th November 2015 ~
Beautiful pile of shit... according to the travel buddy...

Dinner was at another restaurant, one of the travel buddy's favourite as well. I think she must have tried most of the restaurants in Melbourne. She's always eating out as there's just not enough time to cook. 
My travel buddy is my food influencer but she fails to influence me to eat vegetables. I'm a carnivore and happy to be one. 
We didn't have that many type of meat. The other two plates, the waiter made a mistake. Well, at least my camera was well-fed.
