God does not speak when you go for a camp?Must God say something? Touch us? I’ve never heard of anyone going for camp and then say, “God didn’t speak to me/touch me.” Well, maybe yeah, you do learn something.. but must God give a personal touch when at camp? What if He doesn’t? Does He choose not to?
For me, God does not necessary have to speak at camps. He can choose not to, after all, He sometimes is silent.
Speaking of camp, Soul Action. There were things I regretted doing. And why, I thought so much about myself. Anyways, during Project Day, I helped out in “doing henna” for the kids. One thing I’ve learnt: Never do what you know you cannot do (the extreme?). This 12 to 13 years old boy came along, asking me to draw Manchester United’s logo on his hand.
Huh? You sure ah?
But you’re wearing Arsenal’s jersey and you want me to draw Manchester United’s one?
This one my mother bought for me, she bought wrong one.
Um, okay, you have the logo or something?
*takes cap* Here.
But if ugly the how?
I can’t draw that devil and this thing *points at the crest*
It’s okay, just draw the rest.
*starts drawing in worry*
Just a lil’ something I went to find out from Wikipedia about Manchester United:
The Manchester United crest has been altered on a few occasions however its basis remains the same. The badge is derived from the crest of the city of Manchester. The devil on the club badge stems from the club’s nickname “The Red Devils”, which was adopted in the early 60s after Sir Matt Busby heard it in reference to the red-shirted Salford rugby league side. By the end of the ’60s, the devil had started to be included on club programmes and scarves, before it was finally incorporated into the club badge in 1970, holding its unmistakable pitchfork. In 1998, the badge was once again redesigned, this time removing the words “Football Club”. To many fans, this was seen as an act of moving the club away from the footballing side and becoming more of a business, and was met with great anger by many fans.
The past and present crest:
Yeah. I drawed, and it really looked ugly. Hahha.
But it wasn’t enough for him, he asked me to draw Arsenal’s crest on his other hand. Inside, I really, really didn’t want to do it. But I did it anyway.
Now here’s one about Aresenal:
Royal Arsenal’s first crest, unveiled in 1888, featured three cannon viewed from above, pointing northwards, similar to the crest of the Borough of Woolwich. These can sometimes be mistaken for chimneys, but the presence of a carved lion’s head and a cascabel on each are clear indicators that they are cannon. In 1922, the club adopted its first single-cannon crest, featuring an eastward-pointing cannon. This crest was only used until 1925 when the cannon was reversed to point westward, its barrel was slimmed down and the club’s nickname, The Gunners, was inscribed to the left of it. In 1949, the club unveiled a modernised crest featuring the same style of cannon, the club’s name set in blackletter above the cannon, and a scroll inscribed with the club’s newly adopted Latin motto, Victoria Concordia Crescit (meaning “victory comes from harmony”). For the first time, the crest was rendered in colour – red, green, and gold – which varied slightly over the crest’s lifespan.
Because of the numerous revisions of the crest, Arsenal were unable to copyright it; although the club had managed to register the crest as a trademark, and had fought (and eventually won) a long legal battle with a local street trader who sold ‘unofficial’ Arsenal merchandise, Arsenal sought a more comprehensive legal protection. Therefore, in 2002 they introduced a new crest featuring more modern curved lines and a simplified style, which was copyrightable. The cannon once again faces east and the club’s name is written in a sans-serif typeface above the cannon. Green was replaced by dark blue. The new crest received a mixed response from supporters; some claimed that it had ignored much of Arsenal’s history and tradition with such a radical modern design, and that the club’s fans had not been properly consulted on the issue.
I wonder if football fans know much about how these “stuff” came about.
Well, Soul Action was fun. Painting walls, Joshua and Daniel playing with some paint, and break dancing. Joshua learning the 6 step dance? Me recording them on video. Pek Ying tasting paint, maybe that’s why she got sick. Mun and I *aheming* early in the morning. Wei Ling and I trying to bare the cold. Hahha. Yeap.
Oh yeah. The long awaited photos and videos can be viewed at:
