The reason for the season

sorry if i m a bit late in posting this up....

Jesus is Better than Santa

Santa lives at the North Pole.

JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh

JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year

JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies

JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited

JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.

You have to stand in line to see Santa

JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap

JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, What's your name?"

JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly

JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is HO HO HO

JESUS offers health, help and hope.

Santa says "You better not cry"

JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.

Santa's little helpers make toys

JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle but

JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree

JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

It's obvious there is really no comparison.

We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.

We need to put Christ back in Christmas.

Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Lord Bless and Watch over you and your loved ones this Christmas 2008

And may He prosper and bless the work of your hands in the New Year.

Who's leading you?

Who's leading you?
Is it what other ppl do?
Is it what other ppl say?
Is it what you think?
Is it how you act?
Is it fear?
Is it love?
There's only one leader...
so who's leading you?

Don't ask me whether i love my country, ask me what i can do for my country...

btn is not as bad as i imagine it could be... it sort of bring me to a place to think what more can i contribute... however, instilling fear doesn't work... trust me! it's only playing around with ppl's emotion...

Toward Jerusalem by Amy Carmichael

From prayer that asks that I may be
Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,
From fearing when I should aspire,
From faltering when I should climb higher,
From silken self, O Captain, free
Thy soldier who would follow Thee.

From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakening,
Not thus are spirits fortified,
Not this way went the Crucified,
From all that dims Thy calvary,
O Lamb of God, deliver me.

Give me the love that leads the way,
The Faith that nothing can dismay
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire,
Let me not sink to be a clod.
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.

Updates again

finally manage to reach home after a horrible and vegetable experience.... will blog more about it if i feel like doing it... but i believe whatever happens, happens for a reason, now i m still learning from my experiences... and finally i get to visit my grandma after hearing so many different things from aunties, cousins and mum... and when i heard her talking, i was immediately assured that she is still ok... still as loud as before (when a foochow say it's loud, it means really loud) haha...

anyway, i finally come to a point that we can't stop problems n accidents from occuring, but most importantly, how we learn from them... sometimes i feel like my heart was like a dark night, but Jesus with His strong blood, and the Holy Spirit came and washed it. So, now it's as clear as the sky when it has no clouds in it. (Mincaye from the movie End of the spear --> do check it out... it has brought tears n joy to me)

Lesson learned on 'Peace'

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. "

Jesus of Bethlehem

What is peace to you(me)?

When this verse was chosen for Homes (church cell group) as the study material, immediately it strikes me. God had to use so many incidents juz to teach me a lesson on peace, which i fail miserably to catch during that time but looking back at all the 'accidents' i had the past few weeks, it all started to make sense.!

# incident 1
one morning, while trying to withdraw money from an atm machine, my card got stuck. At least i tot it was that time. So i called IMMEDIATELY to the customer service to deactivate my card. When you think that's the end of the story, NO! Few days later, i found out my card is juz in my purse, only at different location, i dunno what on earth happened to me that day. The only thing i remembered was to ignore the 'feeling' of 'everything is going to be alright, trust Me!'

# incident 2
then, it so happen that after one week, my purse was stolen. At least i tot it was that time. So once again, being a smarty-pant, i called the other bank to deactivate my card almost immediately. Then the next day, someone found it lying around somewhere and pass it to the librarian. So you know the rest of the story. I once again isolate the 'feeling' of 'Yes! Your purse have been found!'

the thing is, i have been ignoring this 'feeling' of stillness and assurance. THAT, my dear friends, is not juz a feeling. It's the PEACE that i was hoping to experience all this while in my daily walk with God. so much for a lesson learnt from lacking of peace... haha

wonder y God is willing to spend so much time on an idiot like me... =_=

My story of CA

I can't believe it has been two and half years since the first day I step into INTEC main gate to register myself for ALG programme. And it was during the same week I got my first invitation to INTEC's CF (at that time I didn't know tat it was Campus Alive) and the theme was 'Laughter's Night' dated 5th July 2006, the day that my life took a turn completely. I was introduced to some very excited seniors and from there I realise that I was actually being brought to CA over some series of event by God. Only when I look back I realise that God has been so real to me during my time here in INTEC. I vaguely remembered a beautiful girl who was with me on the train back to Shah Alam. She approached me asking whether I was new and started to invite me to CA. And that officially started off my whole journey of CA.

Personally, CA has been such a huge blessing. I had the privilege to serve in the committee together with passionate people from different programmes led by two visionaries and revolutionists (hey, my boss is Joash, so go figure how our meetings were like.haha) I served in the transport team and from there I really learned a lot about the 'behind-the-scenes' because I get to transport the worship team to their practice. During these practices, I had the chance see CA as not just what we see in front of our naked eyes, people really sacrifice a lot just to make one meeting full of God and full of joy. So whenever I felt weary because of serving, the thought of this instantly woke me up. I know that I am not alone in this journey that I walked, I am surrounded by people who is equally tired but they still press on, knowing the eternal reward towards the end. I will never walk alone.

Another thing that encourages me a lot through out my journey with CA is the seniors. They really played a big part of my life during my first year because as cloud of witnesses, they encouraged us to throw off everything that hinders us and let us run with perseverences the race marked out for us, as what Hebrews 12 : 1 says. They cared for us not out of obligations but out of love. I still remember during my MMS (orientation week) I was freaked out when I was not provided with a spoon or fork to eat my meals and the facilitators didn't seem to care, so I have to go around asking for spoons or simply eat with my hands. However, I notice some seniors who went around smiling and talking to people so I joined in. That was when I got my first CA flyer and an invitation to a church I intended to join. Looking back, indeed God's hand was at work to provided me with a 'home' when I was so far away from my hometown.

When the seniors graduated one by one and they left INTEC, leaving us a bunch of juniors whom we can left a legacy to, just like how our seniors did. Being the only batch with 5 semesters, I see how my juniors and super-juniors grow. They went from being totally confused about everything in INTEC till they become men and women after God's own heart. Sometimes I do feel like they grow so much faster than me and I was always reminded again and again that I must do some catching up. Every batch of CA has their own unique style of handling every CA meeting. And I really enjoy every meeting because I know the effort they put in every CA, from transport to praise and worship, flyering to refreshment, ushering to decoration, mc-ing to games etc etc and all these I believe will be turn into lives. So dearest juniors, do not give up when difficulties come but commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed.

I really don't know what God has prepared for me after I left INTEC, but I trust that God will prepare my way. Every CA has been such a wonderful time in INTEC, it's probably the only thing that I enjoyed doing in the past two and half years. But now, it's time to let go of CA and expect more from God in the future. CA has really been a stepping stone in my journey of faith and I can't always hold on to the experience with CA until I get stuck in my spiritual growth. I must step out of this comfort zone that has been such a blessing for me and prepare to have more CAs to come in Germany!

6.我们常在强壮时,忘了 神。
为什么我们不常向朋友提起 神?因为我们不常向 神提起我们的朋友。

使你向 神靠近的人,是你真正的朋友。
神爱我们,不是因为我们是怎样一个人,而是因为祂是怎样一位 神。

当你除了 神,一无所有时,你将知道 神就是你全部的需要。
放手交给上帝,别再向 神讲述你的风暴有多大,当向风暴讲述你的 神有多大。
当我们只顾工作的时候,我们独自工作;当我们祈祷的时候, 神工作。

步履艰难的时候,别一味的祷告,却不迈向 神要你走的路。

Book of Philipians

Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,

To all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons :

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer : that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ - to the glory and praise of God. Now I want you to know brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the world of God more courageously and fearlessly. It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble fro me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The most important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverence. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two : I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy with faith, so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account on me. Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be saved - and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have. If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interest, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus, Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and become obedient to death - even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave hi the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed - not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence - continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purposes. Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the world of life - in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when i receive news about you. I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare. For everyone looks out for his own interests, not those of Jesus Christ . But you know Timothy has proved himself because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me. And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon. But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my need. For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill. Indeed he was ill, and almost die. But God had mercy on him, and no on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow. Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. Welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor men like him, because he almost died for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up for the help you could not give me.

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you. Watch out for those dogs, those men who do evil, those mutilators of the flesh. For it is we who are the circumcisio, we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, adn who put no confidence inthe flesh - though I myself have reasons for such confidence. If anyone thinks he has reason to put confidence in the flesh, I have more : circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebres; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless. But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compare to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ - the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his suffereings, becoming like him in his death, and so somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but i press o to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, i don not consider myself yet to have teken hold of it. But one thing I do : Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. Only let us live up to what we have already attained. Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you. For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends! I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to agree with each other in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again : Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally brother, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me - put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you habe been concerned, but you have no opportunity to show it. I am no saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty of in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. Moreover, as you Philipians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you send me aid again and again when I was in need. Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account. I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you endt. They are a fragratnt offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according yo his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Greet all the saints in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send greetings. All the saints send you greetings, especially those who belong to Ceasar's household. The grace of the Lord Jesus Chrsit be with your spirit. Amen.

took a long time to type the whole book out to help me understand and re-paragraph the whole book easier... might hav some changes to this post soon... in the mean time, do take some time reading this book, i believe it can teach u a lot...

Post this from my beloved n82 in gmi cafe. So cool!

Saturday, October 18, 2008


English is a lego language as Malay language is, borrowing from many
different sources to make up for its inadequacy! So, it is not so
logical a language linguistically. That explains its many anomalies
and probably, the British concept of democracy, which is only fit for
the British, but not others. Hence, you have democracy in HK only
after the British had left! And of course, only the British could have
left the White Rajah heritage in Borneo!


We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,
Then shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

Then one may be that, and three would be those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;
neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England.
We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes,
we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,
and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing,
grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend.
If you have a bunch of o! dds and ends
and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English
should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
We ship by truck but send cargo by ship.
We have noses that run and feet that smell.
We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.
And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
in which your house can burn up as it burns
down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out,
and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

In closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother not Mop?

Milling class...

milling class commences this week and overall it was fun learning how to shape our workpiece using machines instead of our own bare hands like last year... seriously now i realise y germany produces the best engineers in the world (sorry lah those who are in US or Aus or UK doing engineering course) coz i heard the germans learn all this stuff when they were in primary or secondary sch... not like us, now only we get to touch machines... haih

read urself wat this thing is...

different types of milling cutters...

my groupmate who din wear his duskcoat... bad example!
also shown in the pic is FP1, a type of milling machine... and the grey case is used to block the high speed chip which can burn u as soon as it touches ur skin... sth to do wif small size and high speed which produces massive heat energy, go figure out urself... physics, blah!
(we din learn how to block the chips in class, we improvise our own one... smart leh... haha)

my workpiece before it is being shaped... the diagramm on the bottom left is the product... maybe will post it up once i finish my project... hopefully it turn out to be like the diagramm shown... haha

Happy faces...

whenever i feel that the weight of the world is crushing down on me, i always think of the little kids tat i had the privilege to meet during my occasional trip to the longhouses... having simple life and less worries than the so-called town ppl, i think they are the happiest ppl on earth... they can be easily satisfied by even playing games and they really giv their all in everything that they do... so y m i still holding back myself in doing certain things? tat is the most important thing i've learnt ever since i fall in love wif them...

You know you love me...

Gossip girl here, your one and only source to the scandalous lives of Shah Alam elite. (juz for hahas)

P is back with an empty suitcase, i wonder wat she's up to?

Hari Raya is around the corner. And Gossip Girl wishes all Selamat Hari Raya and may your pockets be filled with lots of duit raya.

For some of us, it is also a time for english, english and more english.

Looks like someone were spotted on the train sitting side by side. Question is, who are they?

Spotted -- Queen I and Lonely Boy, happy and sweet together.

Gossip girl signing off. Who am I? That's a secret I'll never tell. You know you love me.

“Even though you’ve been raised as a human being
you're not one of them. They can be a great people,
Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show
the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good,
I have sent them you… my only son”

Life series : Part 1 - Life talks

最近发现自己还蛮喜欢思考有关于生命的东西,也许是个人的一个怪癖,动不动就搞个什么自闭,然后就乱乱想七想八。可是这次总算有个总结出来了,那就是:生命是能说话的 - Life talks。


下篇预告:生命不止是那样- Life is more than that
