My Time

After tomorrow, so much I'll be missing...
My dreamy face you see not
when the clock ticks 8.30 in the morning,
My name you call not
when planning for lunch date and feasting,
My presence you feel not
when tea time calls for a break and chatting,
My voice you hear not
when telling stories or simply time killing,
My silhouette you reach not
I won't be sharing the laughter and everything
but i'll embrace the sweet memories and feelings
for friendship lasts for as long as we are living

Relationship

Sunshine. Rainstorm.

Life's journey shapes us into our being – who we become, how we behave and why we be. There may be many hello’s, so are goodbye’s. So cherish the bittersweet experiences of getting to know someone because…

An unfortunate encounter is like a fish. It stinks and you cannot endure the stench. That's when you meet someone whom you'd never want to see again.

Some encounter is like a flower, which must be faced warily. It brings joy while it blossoms, and as it wilts, it is discarded. That's when the companionship is very attractive, yet it does not last.

A perfect encounter is like a handkerchief. It wipes away your sweat when you’re weighed down and your tears when you’re sad. That’s when you meet a dear friend who is always there with a hand to lend and a shoulder to cry on.

Lunch, Anyone?

I decided to rekindle my love for cooking.

Ingredients, checked.
Time, checked.
Mood, checked.

First dish of the week. My style of aglio olio spaghetti.

Stuffed chick-cheese, topped with french beans, spinach and bell peppers, and garnished with parsley, coarse black pepper and coarse sea salt.


Side dish. Garlic chicken.

Stir fried with bell peppers garnished with parsley, coarse black pepper and coarse sea salt.


Bon apetit!

Blessing Or Curse?

Always has been, love is her truest friend
Not too long, can there be just one man
Aloneness, never has there been such a time
Like a full stop that can't find its place in a line

A big heart she has, more love she receives
Someone, somewhere, they come like gifts
Knowing well, acceptance will be offensive
But yes is possible, she secretly still believes

Betrayal

How can you talk about it?
Are you even qualified to mention that word?
When you revealed her personal and work details, she didn't even say a word.

Do you even know how to be a friend?
Before you point your finger, friend, look into the mirror first.

Happy making good friends!

Decisions

I am found.
Among the few hats I've put on, although I excelled in all, I find joy only in one of them. So, I made one of the biggest decision of the year (then) to follow my heart and pursue my passion. I was at peace with my decision and it was a joy.

Racing into the second month, the battle of two years finally caught up. Everything happened so quickly, even the captain of the ship had to leave. And a part of my love departed with him. I knew and know that no matter how much tears was shed, much had been lost and nothing will be rekindled.

I am lost.
And for many months now, I have been lost and I have been robbed of joy. So I decided to find the love in my heart again - the passion that compelled the big decision earlier.

I have decided.
So yet again, I made one of the biggest decision for this year. I've decided for new love and new life. Although I see not the journey ahead, well at least I've taken my first step. I am again, at peace with myself.

Happy finding love!

By Pastor Peter & Me

Many are called but few chosen,
I'm the few who are not frozen;
My heart is set ablaze to bloom;
For my pace is 'vroom, vroom, vroom';
To keep my lamp burning in my heart's little room,
I eagerly waits for the soon coming Groom;
So this is my real spiritual oomph!

Treasures

Short-lived earthly treasures, lay up not
They can be stolen, destroyed and rot
But lay up your treasures in heaven
Which are eternal and cannot be broken

Zai

A dedication to the friend, who is like a younger sis *smile*

I remember the very first time I met her
Gleaming with hope, yet shy and unsure;
Borrowing my eyes to look into the future,
She embarked on a life-changing adventure.

Believing that she is a diamond in a rough -
Delicate outside, yet within she is tough;
Isn't a diamond with a flaw more valuable
Than the flawless brick or roadside pebble?

The gloom in her voice then, is now full of aspiration,
Her doubts and unease have turned into satisfaction;
With a ray of hope, she looks forward to a new morning,
For the winter in her life will eventually give way to spring.

Proverbs 12:18

My version of it...

Our tongues can be like a sharp multi-bladed knife
When it comes to the variety of uses in our life;
Which includes cutting and destroying each other
With unhealthy attitudes of irritation and anger.

O, let us not divide friendships and relationships
Instead, let us guard and put a seal upon our lips;
While the unwise speaks like the piercing of a sword
The tongue of the wise promotes health in one accord.

Friendship

Friendship is not without a price,
More than joy and everything nice.
It is built on a foundation of trust-
The gist that makes friendships last.
Stripping your friend bare unnecessarily,
Is razing the walls of friendship, ultimately.

Oh, Dear Love

I wish you do not shed another tear for me
I truly do not wish to leave your heart empty
I wish you would grant me this forgiveness
I really do not wish to see you in bitterness

Forgive me, I am at peace to walk this path alone
Be strong, this is a passage you can call your own
Stand up and run, if you ever fall for me again
Slowly but surely, time will heal this pain

As I leave with a heavy, unwilling heart
I could even feel the sting of this cut
It is the most difficult of all goodbyes
But a truth is better than a million lies

I did imagine myself as your perfect destination
Dawdling as I stared out at the sea in anticipation
But waiting is sometimes unbearable in a fantasy
And there is always a final stop in every journey

Just as the many changing facades of seasons
There are tears, guilt, devotion and patience
It is genuinely fate, love, wonder and innocence
That bring us together and bridge this distance

A thousand days may affect the crops and harvest
But a thousand storms cannot distress our love
I wish you no longer fear of letting me go
I hope we will some day meet again, though

Today's Roadtrip

We've planned for a bigger group for this roadtrip... We missed another car-load of friends, but at least we made this happened. Next round, we'll have more people, definitely! Meanwhile, enjoy the captured moments below.

We arrived at Gunung Lang after 2 hours of drive,
bought the ticket at RM3 and the captain immediately said, "Let's go!"

Mr Alvin is a very friendly man who had worked in Gunung Lang for 10 years.
He even asked us, "Why he didn't pay for all of you? Modern times now."
Well, among all my guy friends, he is the one who doesn't pay for any of us *smile*

Beautiful view that stole my breath away~~~

Intruders! They were stealing the ostrich's food!

It posed for the camera! How cool is that?!!

Sang Kancil! (I think, or I hope them to be)

3 girls in the sun

It was hot, but the weather is perfect for the camera...

We went up the tower to capture this awesome beauty!

*heart*

*heart*heart*

*heart*heart*heart*

You can alsmost taste the powdery waterfall...

After a morning full of photos, we headed over for lunch.
Local and HK celebrities were patrons of this restaurant!
Well, we are celebrities too *wink*

Yummy! But a little too oily...

Then we headed over to get the all famous Ipoh heong peng.

Ready to be baked...

I didn't know it was done this way!

Did you know? If you didn't, now you know!

Heong peng still hot from the oven...

Told you we are celebrities!
We only buy from where other celebrities had been *lol*

After lunch, we continued with some walk-xercise at gua kek lok thong.
It was very cooling in the cave.

Ipoh Parade! The main purpose of this roadtrip.
We arrived at 1.30pm, after buying a pair of pants, Moc kidnapped my camera to the centre court to take pictures of Raymond Lam. I don't know who he is, but I believe some of you do know...

Anyway, we went to papparich for dinner after.
Then we headed north for home.
It was a tiring trip, I loved it to bits nonetheless.
I will do this roadtrip again, very soon!

Seaside Living I Heart


You could practically taste the salty air, just by looking at this breathtaking picture. I'd love to let inspirations flow in and through the fresh sea breeze as I write-away in this little paradise, or just daydream to help me through those rainy days.

*Delayed Post* Bukit Merah 4 & 5 Sept 2010

It was cloudy when we arrived at 3pm, but the view was beautiful!

We decided to take a bike ride around Bukit Merah, only RM5/hour.
so here we go...

On the way towards the bike rental counter, a family was feeding the ducks

Look at these two... they melt my heart *smile*

So, I got onto the bike!

I had retired 10 years ago, after a minor accident of me hitting a Mercedes.
But now, I'm enjoying it!


I did cycle around, I didn't just pose for the picture =)
It was spectacular!


After the ride, we cool it off with some ice cream =)
I would have chosen chocolate, but any dessert makes my day anyway...


Then we headed to the pool and I caught adrian in action before water baptism


Briefing before everyone gets into the pool

After washing up, we had dinner.


But I had to have my sophisticated meal while others feast...


After feeding our physical body, we got ready for some spiritual bread


Praise and worship, then the Word


The next day, we had the sunday praise and worship, and the service before heading to lunch. Poor Chris had to eat the flooded rice because he made me ate flooded rice last week during lunch at work!


Then we bid Bukit Merah goodbye.



We learnt a lot about unity and we get to know each church member better, truly a well-spent time together as a family unit of God.
But I will not go there again. *oops*

Wasted Time

I halted and looked back halfway through
Time that had passed us by without a clue
I felt a glimpse of regret simmering within
How would the last six months have been?

I thought I do not measure up to you
You thought, I am reserved and cool
Besides professional affairs, we said hi
More than occasional jokes, we said bye

I heartily wish I had taken the initiatives earlier
We would have understood each other much better
With just a few precious days left before november
It's still not too late now, to really get to know each other.

Happy making friends!

Perseverance

Design your own life, make a difference
Do not be impulsive, but have patience
In your own ways, you are gifted indeed
Believe and have faith, you will surely succeed

The roads may be rocky
The journey may be stormy
But remember before the rainbow
Cloudburst will first, steal the show

Some days, it may be smooth sailing
Some days, it may be awfully grueling
But do not ever give up making your voice heard
For one day, your efforts will be appreciated

Wait no longer, now is the time to unfold
With the first step, more steps will follow
Keep focused and keep your dreams in sight
The path will eventually lead you to the light

Have faith and continue to aim high
You'll see your dreams soar in the sky!

An Empty Heart

I carry a giant heavy load
The burden on my back, slung obliquely
As I walk down this lonely road
Only warm breeze embraces my body

Some say this glass is half empty
I would say this glass is half full
But could wine continue to flow ceaselessly?
That the overflowing may wash away my blues

Can the glimpse of past memories be brought to reality?
Will those picturesque reminiscences return to stay?
If only peace and love could find the way back to me
Once again, we could share the stories from yesterday

A Tribute

To the man who devoted his entire life to make a difference and to achieve change in HK music industry...

Sitting alone accompanied only by my lonely shadow
A faint hint of hope from the street lamp hanging low
Reminiscing the beautiful times, the melodic years we shared
Wishing you've had the slightest glimpse of how much we cared

Your perseverance is highly valued and admired
Your passion is still deeply revered and respected
Your music is still greatly loved and appreciated

Your departure has left our realm forever marred and stained
Your determination, efforts and sacrifices were not in vain
The battle you fought, the struggles you had to go through
Even after a decade and a half, people still continue to praise you

Do It Yourself!

Make your own history
Write your own story
Direct your own movie
Sing your own melody
Turn your wildest dreams into reality


Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I'm rereading 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari'. Each time I read it, I learn something new, or different perspectives caught me.

Anyway, I want to share this paragraph on the secret of happiness with you:

Find out what you truly love to do and then direct all your energy towards doing it.

If you study the happiest, healthiest, most satisfied people of our world, you will see that each and every one of them has found their passion in life, and then spent their days pursuing it. This calling is almost always one that, in some way, serves others. Once you are concentrating your mind power and energy on a pursuit that you love, abundance flows into your life, and all your desires are fulfilled with ease and grace.

Life is short, so I hope you find your passion and be happy always.

O, Madiba!

For him, the meaning of being dark
is a constant struggle for equality,
Never wavering, he continues to embark
on this long and winding journey.

The art of splashing colours exude the charm of creativity,
The spectrum of colourful lives express individuality,
For him, he believes that diverse colours of humanity,
can live in harmony and uphold the spirit of unity.

Fighting against the white domination,
A fight that he didn’t choose for himself
Fighting against the black domination,
A fight in which he saw the destination for everyone else.

An ideal not many would live for to achieve,
an ideal of a democratic and free society,
But one whose own life, he is willing to give,
for each person to live together in harmony,

One person’s treasured sacrifices
should have been enough to make all ears hear,
But there are still those familiar faces
of those who are wretched, lost and full of fear.

Every day, I pray for a more joyful and peaceful tomorrow,
A tomorrow without status separation, but with equal opportunity,
Every day, I pray for a better world for our children to grow,
A world that is filled with love that stretches to eternity.

Complaints

There's nothing wrong complaining, about society, politics, work, friends, family, surroundings. 
But when you complain, make sure you do something about it to make it better. 
There's nothing wrong to continue complaining, about everything and your deepest feelings. 
As long as you continue to do something about it and make it better. 

Otherwise, you'll be complaining your whole life, and complaining to your grave.

I Have A Dream Came True

A dream to find a man who understands me better than myself, believing in me more than I do myself. A man who matches my values and personality, without me uttering a single word.

My dream came true when...

I wake up to your peaceful breathing on my ears, your rousing lips on my neck, your gentle touch on my skin, and your heart beating rhythmically with mine.

Believing in my heart, I could never find that feeling with anyone else other than you...

Cherish Today

 Yes! Life is unexpected, we don't even know what till happen the next second.

At the Malaysia concert on 28 May 1993, Beyond concluded that there would be a bigger and greater concert in 1994. Little did he know that his last breath would be on 30 June 1993.

It's been 17 years now, and I still feel him and miss him... as I wrote before, can we love and un-love?

And I agree with Paul Wong (guitarist, vocal) that for us [the band] and for hong kong, the incident [the lead singer's death] was not merely about the loss of an artist. It was about losing a revolutionary of music.

Cherish life, and treasure those around you, every day, every hour, every minute, every second!

Life

Life is not about what you've gained,
but what you've done with it.

Again...?

Yep, I think I'm in love... again!

When I'm around you, I just get all so shy
When you look at me, I drown in your eyes
I wish I could help myself from falling deeper
But maybe I didn't want any help either...? 
All these feelings mixed up, I know it is silly 
But I couldn't help it, and just let it be...

Take NOT Life For Granted

Last Thursday, I religiously flipped through The Star newspaper in the morning and scanned the obituary section, before reading the World Cup updates.

Something stopped me - a beautiful 11-year-old girl who returned to the Lord on 30 June 2010. Dearly loved and missed by her dado, mum, two sisters and the rest of the family. Then, I made a silent prayer for her and her family.

Today, my cousin shared on Facebook that she was reading the story of Anya McKinney, which touch the deepest of her heart. The name was familiar and I clicked on Anya's page... then her slideshow and His love for Anya.

I immediately recognised the face. Anya McKinney, the little girl whom I met in the newspapers. I cannot fathom the emotions, for no one who has not experienced the loss of a child can truly understand. Although we may hear many accidents and deaths everyday, it is definitely different when it touches the family.

Anya's story, and many such heart-touching stories always remind me to appreciate and love our family, friends, ourselves... and especially life. And everything else, trust God.

In Matthew 6:25 Jesus said "Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?" He continued in Matthew 6:27 saying, "which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?"

May the McKinneys be comforted in the Lord's love and embrace.

God Is Our Helper

Yesterday, Pastor shared about how we magnify our problems rather than magnifying what God can do. He has the solutions for us, only if you humbly come to him and ask. He said, "Ask and it shall be given, knock and it shall be open." We need to learn to ask for the Lord's divine help and intervention. We need to trust in the Lord for His ways are higher than ours!

Sometimes, it's hard to ask (for many reasons - inadequacy, worthlessness, guilt, disbelief and the list continues). But you'll be amazed by the power of prayer and you'll be amazed by God's great solutions instored.

With all honesty, sometimes the world's worries wear me down and at low moments like this, I did feel unworthy of God's help. But it was written in Hebrews 13:5 that for He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you. And continues to the following verse, so we may boldly say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"

Today, I did some catching up at meet me in the meadow and this post caught my attention - so much in lined with yesterday's message... you are not alone *gently pat on your shoulder (and mine too)*

You are not alone
For God is with you.
You are not defenseless
For God is your protector.
You are not inadequate
For God is your sufficiency.
You are not useless
For God has a purpose for your life.
You are not worthless
For God sent His Son to die for you.
You are not without hope
For God has a place prepared for you.
You are not unloved
For God loves you with an everlasting lofe
You are not rejected or abandoned
For God call you His own.

Have a blessed week ahead!

What Way To See?

If you've been seeing a half empty glass, try seeing a half full glass.
If you see a half closed door, try to see a half opened door.
If you see an impossible, try to see i'm-possible.

Nothing is more powerful than our mind, and with God, all things are POSSIBLE!

Saturday, June 19, 2010

I forgot how much I'd loved CBT Green Tea Blended (as shown in picture), Mocha Blended (as shown in picture) and Chicago Cheesecake (NOT shown in picture). We just wanted to spend time together, so we popped in for a sinFULL treat... and I'd commit this sin any time for the some moments with hubby.

Well, I'm only human... I'm prone to sin =P

Prince Of Persia

The movie is personally rated A for many reasons - beauty, plot, zeal - but most importantly, be enticed by the script, both witty and heart-warming.

Above all, see this... A father's influence over his children is very powerful. It has the power to kill or build, it has the power to divide or unite, it has the power to breed hatred or make love.

From King Sharaman:
"A good man would have done as you did, Dastan, acted boldly and courageously to bring a victory and spare life, but a great man would have stopped the attack from happening at all. A great man would have stopped, if he know it to be wrong, no matter who was ordering it. The boy I saw in that square was capable of being more than just good, but of being great."

For one who has always longed for fatherly counsel, it was written in Isaiah 9:6 that His Name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. And in Romans 8:37, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Each and every one of us is capable of being more, because we are more than conquerors. So, if you're passing through feeling discouraged by negative comments from a friend, a colleague, your boss, your spouse or your parents... know that you are capable of being more than just good, you are capable of being great. Don't let anyone kill your hope and steal your dreams.

Happy living to the fullest!

Times Are Changing

Mama used to (and she still would) buy me everything and anything that I want.

I still remember my many firsts... 'mini' cheongsam, lacey hairband, gold bracelet, Snow White and The Jungle Book video tapes, 3-in-1 fairytale storybook, Barbie Boll (with dresses and underwear sewn by mum), Playdoh, watch, bag, 42-piece colour pencils, boots, boyfriend, handphone, DVD from pasar malam, computer, laptop.

I remembered when they won the lottery for my NRIC number. Papa and Mama bought me my first Walkman, and for the family, a hi-fi set. That was the year we had our first family car - Proton Wira, paid full in cash.

Today, it's my honour and blessing to be able to give back to them and buy them (mostly) whatever they want. The thing is, parents are so modest. They let you buy them things, but they'd choose the cheapest. They don't demand much, because in the end of the day, parents just want us to be good and happy. That's their mission in bringing us up.

Thank you, Papa and Mama! Love you so very much!

This year, Mama chose this for Mothers' Day
 
Papa, yours is coming soon =)

Assurance In Jesus

May Jesus assure you that as you follow Him
You will never meet a fear He cannot conquer,
You will never face an enemy He cannot defeat,
You will never enter a battle He cannot win,
You will never have a need He cannot meet,
You will never face a temptation He cannot overcome,
You will never have a burden He cannot lift,
You will never face a problem He cannot solve,
You will never have a bondage He cannot break,
You will never have a moment when He does not care,
You will never have a time when He is not there.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
-Philippians 4:13

He Who Matters

He smiles, but I see gloom in his eyes.
He laughs, but I see wrinkles of worries.
He cares, but I see heaviness in his heart.
If only I can do something to make it better.

Happy One Month

I'm still loving it.
And I'm looking forward to more days, weeks and months with you.
Let's walk this journey and build this dream... together.
The future may seem bleak, but I believe anything is possible!
We'll keep our heads high and weather through.
We know that every union requires faith and trust.
So, have a little faith and trust in me.

My Love Affair

When I first be with you, I was thinking "no strings attached".

I'm just gonna spend some time with you, then more time with those I have committed to. I used to dread the weekdays, but now I love weekdays as much as weekends.

Coming into the 4th week that we've been seeing each other almost everyday, I can't seem to detach my self, heart and mind. I want you everyday.

You keep me wanting more. I'd say it's a teeny weeny bit cruel to put me through the realm of attachment. But I love the feeling.

So, what have I got myself into? I didn't want this, I didn't want this feeling. But somehow, I'm still human and I have feelings. I have fallen a little over in love with you.

I love you, FifthComm!

What Am I?

Just found out yesterday that it was popular bookfair again... and today will be the last day!

So this was me queuing up to pay for my books. So excited!

If you ask me what am I... I'd tell you truthfully, I'm NOT a bookworm.

I'm a book addict.

He Is Our Comforter

When the money is good, the work's tough. It's the same for any work. Either it's the predicament or the people you need to deal with. So nothing comes easy, everything is earned.

When it seems difficult and down, these always come in time to comfort and keep me going: 

"Jamie did an amazing job today. She's an outstanding and excellent speaker. Please tell her, she's my idol."

"I'm very happy and appreciate Jamie's follow up. I miss her. She's a very caring person and I like talking to her."

Thank You, Lord, for bringing people to lift me up. I love You, Lord.

I Have Something For ABCDEF

Yep, I really do... I have a soft spot for them. So let me introduce them:

(A)rabians - maybe it's their scruffy look
(B)razillians - their sexy tan and accent (oooh!)
(C)anadians - must be their beautiful red cheeks (from the cold weather)
(D)anish - accent as well
(E)nglish (Irish, Scottish and Welsh too) - definitely and 100% accent, maybe it's more than that, they always find a way to reach me *smile*
(F)rench - their romantic sense and accent

Oh, well... accent really get to me, but only gentlemen get through the door to my heart.

Where Do I Belong?

When I'm here, I'm not really here.
When I'm there, I'm not really there.
Even if I disappear, I think here and there will not notice, anyway.
I sometimes think the real world is the dream and the virtual is real, but deep in my heart I know which is real and which is not.
Well I guess I just don't belong... anywhere.

The Hardest Question

Have you ever been asked why, when you tell your loved one that you love them?

I always get that, and I personally like to ask the question even though I know there's no answer for that.

Well, I just do love you, and love hath no reason. I just do!

I Love My Bestest Friend!

Because he first love me *smile*

My bank account may not have as much money as him, but I'm so much better than him...
... because I have you and he doesn't.
