Two souls who by the grace of God found each other. As we love each other, we remember that it is God's love that made this all possible. As we strive to build a strong relationship, we remember that it is actually our r'ship with CHRIST that binds us together. So as we will begin our life together, it is our desire to share God's love to this world and be CHRIST's humble servant wherever He may call us!

I am 32 now!

Just turn 32 yesterday! Looking back I am very thankful to God for all HIS blessings and faithfulness to me! Even thought I had gone astray (many times) from Him, He has been merciful and gracious to me.

Today I am bless with a wife who loves me very much and a daughter I love very much as well.
I am also blessed with an extended family that is supportive and caring...
As well as many friends from Penang, KL, Nilai College, MCKL and etc!
300 wishes took me well over 2hours to read them and liked them all!

Some people say this is very shallow and meaningless to just wish people over FB. However I see birthdays as a chance to just catch up and to touch based with old friends!

Sometimes we need a reason just to say hello to friends we have not talked to for sometime.
For me just the effort of making that simple wish is meaningful and I appreciate all of them.

So thank you everyone who had taken that few second to wish me Happy Birthday! I appreciate it and I appreciate your friendship! (even through you needed FB to remind you)
My prayer wish is that I may be a good dad and husband and friend!

Especially to those who are counting on me now!!

Breanne Chan Hui Li is our 2nd Anniversary Present from God!

I have been too preoccupied these past few months dues to various reason. None more so then the preparing for the arrival of my daughter!

Breanne Chan Hui Li! Born on 15th August 2011, 9.38am She weight in at 3.2kg. YES! Right smack on our 2nd Anniversary!! Exactly 2 years ago Joanne and I said "I do" to each other! NO! we did not plan it!
You can't plan for such things, can you?!?!
In the beginning we wanted to give her another name. Joanne and I were thinking of names that sound nice and etc. We actually settled on a name which Joanne really liked and would not change her mind.

But one day, as I was riding my bike to work, I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me saying did I ask God to see if the name we had chosen was the name God would like. So feeling convicted, I decided to engaged my wife in another round of debate on our daughter's name (that very night).

To my surprise she said she felt the same and that we should start afresh on choosing our daughter's name. Joanne & I actually fasted and prayed for 1 week on getting a child and not long after the fasting and prayer, Joanne got pregnant.

So we decided to do the same thing and I fasted and prayed for one week to seek God's guidance on the name of our first child.

Right after the fast, I took my old name book and flip through the pages. I felt guided to choose a name that meant Strong Grace. At first I didn't think such name exist. Joanne and I have been looking through meaning of names and have not come across such a name.

However I did find that name in the book. The name is Breanne. Bre which is short for Bridget, which means strong, and Anne which means Grace!

We choose this name for her because it is really by the grace of God that we have this Child. From my past sins to where I am now, it is only by God's grace that has brought me here. Also we hope that this child will grow in the Grace of God and be a graceful lady as well.

Strong is because is was very strong in Joanne's tummy, kicking her all the time! Hahahaha!
We also hope that she will grow to be a strong in her faith and conviction in God and to be a blessing to everyone around her.

This is our prayer for her! May God grant us the grace, strength and wisdom to be good parents the this gift of love which God has give to Joanne and me!
We just want to thanks God for His blessings in giving Joanne a very fast and smooth delivery and both mom and daughter are in great health!

We also would like to thank all those who have been praying for us throughout the delivery!
Thank you for your support and love!
God Bless!!

Joy-Anne meets Breanne! So cute!

Our Mothers, to whom I know we will be very grateful to for helping us take care of Breanne!

    Isn’t a one-race civil service a form of apartheid?

    Read this article from CPI.

    Thought it was a great article and would like to share this with everyone.

    Written by Dr Boo Cheng Hau
    Saturday, 18 June 2011 12:39

    civil-serviceI remember once as a young medical officer, I was boycotted by operating theatre staff when I wanted stern action taken against a staff nurse who went for a kenduri when she was supposed to scrub for a surgery.

    An assistant nurse had to cover up for her delinquent senior. Both the nurses – the one who had absented herself and the one suddenly forced to relieve her duty – were Malay. The young patient lying on my operating table waiting to deliver her baby was Malay too. And also Malay, the anaesthesist and other operating theatre staff who gave me the cold shoulder after I remonstrated with the matron.

    I had informed Matron right away after I found the young nurse shivering in fear because she was thrown into the deep end and unprepared to assist in a surgery. If I had expected disciplinary action to be taken, I was disappointed. My colleagues who rallied around the race banner sadly failed to see that the patient (someone belonging to their own ethnic community) about to give birth deserved the best medical care.

    What if it had been an emergency case where a life was at stake? Malays have to be made aware that an incompetent and one-race dominated civil service may not be beneficial to them and as the majority, they would be the ones ultimately most affected. With such experiences, you can understand why I resigned from the public health sector.

    One of my Malay superiors urged me to “think about the service” but then again, if only the Malays themselves could think about how racism among civil servants has hindered their own progress.

    1Malay first and foremost

    Malaysia has a “huge and largely ethnic Malay civil service, completely loyal to Umno, but increasingly incompetent” that is the biggest obstacle to Prime Minister Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia. This was the view of former Economic Planning Unit deputy director-general K. Govindan, according to a leaked United States diplomatic cable.

    The WikiLeaks that appeared in Malaysia Today on June 6 had the cable further quoting Govindan’s opinion that our civil service adopts “a very narrow worldview and will oppose, even refuse to implement, reforms perceived as damaging ethnic Malay interests, even if convinced of the long-run gains for Malaysia”.

    Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has referred to the service as a “Malay administration”. He did not even bother to pass it off as a “bumiputera administration” in which case it can be claimed by the non-Muslim natives of East Malaysia. Alas, the Orang Asli indigenous to the peninsula do not even figure in the equation.

    Non Malays have been gradually cleansed from the public sector with only a few remaining now in crucial and inevitable sectors such as teaching in vernacular schools. The Orang Asli have been totally excluded.

    My Heartfelt Condolences to Mrs Chiu's family

    Mrs. Chiu (nee Luk Tien Fen)

    30 December 1954 - 7 June 2011

    Mrs. Chiu nee Ms. Luk Tien Fen, a dedicated lecturer at Methodist College Kuala Lumpur, was called home to the Lord on 7 June 2011 after battling cancer. Originally from Sibu, Sarawak, Mrs. Chiu, began teaching at Methodist College Kuala Lumpur in August 1985 as an Economics lecturer.

    Over the last 26 years, her guidance reached beyond the classroom as an advisor for the Christian Fellowship group, and administratively as the Head of Arts and later as Head of Panel for economics in 2007 and 2009 respectively. She passed away at the University Hospital in Petaling Jaya at around 11.30 p.m., surrounded by family and friends.

    Mrs. Chiu will always be fondly remembered and dearly missed as a loving and dedicated lecturer, administrator, role model and friend to the many staff and students whose lives have been touched by this outstanding woman. Our most heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to her family, friends and dear ones as they go through this difficult time.

    The wake services on 8 and 9 June 2011 at 8.30 p.m. and the funeral service on 10 June 2011 at 10.00 a.m. will be held at No.5, Gui Yuan Funeral Parlour, Jalan 229 Kampung Tunku in Section 51, Petaling Jaya.

    If only it was that easy!

    Who needs wives when we have prostitutes!!!

    Hahahahaha!!! I just return from JB from my friends wedding.
    Went I reach home my wife showed me this article on NST and the Star!

    Basically it is about lady called Dr. Rohaya Mohammad, who has served with the Health Ministry for 15 years and written speeches for former ministers Dr Chua Soi Lek and Chua Jui Meng. She is the vice-president of a new club called 'Obedient Wife Club'!
    According to her, "a wife must obey and serve her husband like "a first-class prostitute" to keep him from straying and to prevent greater social ills." Hahahahahahaha!!!

    "You must satisfy your husband. A good wife should be a whore in bed," said 46-year-old doctor, whose husband has three other wives.

    Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!! I have not laugh so hard for such a long time!!!

    If only it was soooooooooooooooooo easy, all the prostitute would either be out of a job or better still HAPPILY MARRIED!!!!

    As a married man myself I would like to know how would I know if my wife is good in bed if I never had anything to compare with?

    How would I know if she is better than a world class prostitute ah!??!

    And if she is not good, does that give the husband a free pass to be unfaithful?!?!

    Shocking mentality coming from a person who serve 15 years in the Health Ministry!

    Maybe Chua Soi Lek should have send his wife to be train by this Dr instead of getting her to just write his speeches!!!!
