About Us

My photo
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! Now with the arrival of Breanne Chan, we pray that we will be able to bring her up according to God's Commands and Love!

Inspiration! From God?!?

While driving this morning I was in deep thought and had this inspired message that came to me. I believe it is from God. So I want share this!

Let me start by saying that I am one of the most un-Christian like drivers I know. I have very little patience and I can get mad at people on the road.

Perhaps that is why God sent me to stay and work in KL.
Perhaps that is why I have to drive at least 1 hour every day to get to work.
Perhaps that is why I am sent to work in a traffic jam crazy place like Brickfields!

Perhaps God is trying to teach me something.
Hmmm.. Perhaps!
Malaysian are the Nicest People......
Till they get behind the wheel!
Malaysian Drivers are rude, inconsiderate, unethical, reckless and etc.
(and I am not much different also lah)
So are Malaysian Christian Drivers any better or different?!?
I have heard even Pastors and Christian confessing that they rather not put Christian Car stickers at the back of their car for fear of being a bad testimony to others!
BUT is that the right attitude to have?
Are we not effectively denying God in our driving lives?
It is like saying that "I am a Christian! But my Car is a Sinner!"
How can we then expect God to protect us in our driving and our cars when we don't even acknowledge Him while we drive?
Just like evangelising and sharing God with other.
One of the reason why we dare not share our faith with others, is because we are afraid that we ourselves are not good Christian example for our non-Christian friends.
But is that a good enough reason not to share Christian with other?
On the contrary, we need to share Christ with everyone and through the sharing of the word, we will have to force ourselves to always keep watch over our own actions!
This should be the same in our driving as well.
We should get lots and lots of Car Stickers and place it all around our Car to tell everybody around us that we are Christians!
This should force us to drive in a more polite and graceful manner because we know that others are watching us and we dare not bring shame to Jesus!
In fact I have an idea for a car sticker that says...
HONK once if I drive like Jesus!
HONK twice if I drive like the Devil!
Just think!
If this becomes a huge movement with all the Christian around Malaysia , this could become the single largest evangelistic movement in Malaysia! People will really know the Jesus makes a difference!
Then if the other religion see this good example and because they not wanting to lose out also follow suit... Soon we could change an entire generation of driving culture in Malaysia!
I have faith this will work... but I dunno where to start....probably by me changing my own driving habits. I can't do it by myself! I pray that the Holy Spirits will help me in that area!
In the mean time I am gonna do is to look for a Christian Car Stickers!

My Trip to Fraser's Hill last weekend

Went to Fraser's Hill last weekend to bring my college's student for an Alpha Course Camp.
YES! I went alone again without my wife. What to do she got work.
I do miss her but it was just 2 days 1 night camp and I got to go take pictures again. This one nice ah?!?
Can you see the butterfly?
Ms Leow (MCKL's future Director of Academic Studies), Ms Moey and I took turns conducting the Alpha Course.
The course can be quite interesting with activities in between to make it more fun and interactive for the students.
Ms Moey and Ms Leow were great in their sessions. With over 30 years of experience teaching, it was a learning experience just watching them in action!
However we still had some blur students! (Kidding!)
Then came my turn! And I was nervous! How do I match these Giants of Faith and Experience in Teaching the word of God?!? .... The Answer!
You can't match them! So don't even try! Just do your own stuff like dressing your students like a clown so that they can relate better with you!! Hahahahaha!!
But serisously this were a really great bunch of students! Some of the rededicated their lives to the Lord and to serve Him!
I got to pray for them in an alter call like session.
(Sorry no pictures for that.)
Its been a long time since I did anything even close to that.
I am happy I had a chance to serve God and to make a difference in the lives of young people.

I know I am committed in so many things and have been travelling every other weekend. So I am very thankful for a very understanding wife that support and understand what I do. Even through some people complain to her that I am always gone over the weekends, she defends what I do.
TO all the Christian guys out there!!
All praise and glory and honour to God!

My sister's kids! I just love them!

I think I am getting better at using DSLR to take pictures!!
Yesterday went to my sister's place to take pictures of her kids, needed the pictures for my Diploma in Early Childhood Education brochures and etc.
Methodist College KL is a small college and you got to do everything here.
So I am the Marketing Manager, the photographer, web page master, the corp communication officer, the counsellor and etc lah.
But that's just great! Cause then I have to learn everything lah!
And lately I have to learn about photography.
Its great when you get good pictures!
It helps when your subjects are fun, cute, adorable and cooperative!!

I like this but Priscilla's head is cut off!

My second choice!

This will probably be my main picture for the ECE course!

I wonder if I can sell this picture to Colgate or Darlie!
Maybe I sell the earlier one to Colgate and this one to Darlie

This one can go to Kodomo Lion!
I wonder who I can sell this pic too!
Neslac will be happy with this!
Too bad it is not Neslac inside!

Joyanne showing that she has as big a mouth as her mother!!

Practice kissing already!! Wah Lau! Fast man!

This gal is cute even when she is not smiling! Merajuk like her mum!

My Trip to Singapore last week!

Last, last weekend I went to Singapore for the 2nd Stedfast Regional Fellowship Games.
Joanne couldn't come along cause she could not get off work.
Left on Fri and took the Second link into Singapore, which was quite fast and hassle free!
When we reach our accommodation, we were pleasantly surprise to have a bag-piper greeting us.
We stayed in the Girls Brigade HQ.
It has very nice, simple hostel.
As soon as we got settled down our very generous, nice host (Stedfast Singapore) took us on a double-decker, open bus tour.
This is my first time seating in such a tour.

Thank goodness I took my SLR camera with me to shoot some pictures!
The Stedfast Singapore Members took us for a tour of Singapore City!
And I got to see some interesting things!
Like Roof top for rent?!?! Rain how ah!??
It has been a long time since I visited Singapore and I found that Singapore (as expected) is very well developed and clean. But also I like that they managed to keep a lot of their old buildings!
We went around Little India as well because it was the eve or Deepavali and the tour guide thought it would be interesting for us to see Little India at its busiest time.

This is a new monument in Singapore. It looks like 2 pairs of chop sticks. It represents the 4 main races in Singapore.
This is the site where they are busy building the new casino! Genting Highlands gonna die liao lah!
The sunset view was nice to watch as well.

We pass by Carrie Underwood free concert! (at orchard road!)
Wanted to ask the bus drive to stop! But too bad lah!
One of Orchard Road's latest buildings! Nice!
One thing about Singapore is that they are a bit too liberal liao lah.
But I wouldn't want to cheat in Singapore lah!Next to the Adult Planet the have this sign! Wah Lau! Talk about strategic location!
Later the bus drop us off at a place call Clarke.
And then we hope on a boat for a night boat cruise!
The view from the boat was great! The river is now very clean. How I wish Klang river, or Sungai Pinang was like this!
I am getting use to the SLR camera and this is my fav pic I took from the trip!
Nice or not?!?
See here and here for more and better quality pictures!
The KL Stedfast team!
To top it all off, the Stedfast Singapore members took us to a very very posh and nice restaurant for dinner/supper.
We had their famous chili crabs!

Also got some other sea food stuff that I dunno what it is but it was good!

Later we took the MRT back to GB HQ!

Actually I found that Singapore has a lot of trees and parks as well.
The next day (Sat) we went to this Christian School for our games. Forget the name of the school liao!
The hospitality of the Stedfast Members were really really good!
Good food was always plentlyful!! This was lunch!
Our youngest but most exciting member from KL!

Again the Stedfast Singapore members fed us very well for dinner!

I loved the Cheese rice!
This is my Dad's Senior in Seminary College many years ago!
On Sunday we went to Payar Lebar Methodist Church.
It has been 20 years since I have been to that church!
Wah they tore it down and completely rebuild the church!
And it is a beautiful church!!
Really nice!!
Made me think about moving to Singapore!
On the way back I called my wife and talk to her about my trip!
She told me that she has always wanted to stay in Singapore because it is so nice, orderly, clean, and etc.

The thought of coming here and applying for PR did cross my mind too. But considering we just bought a house for over RM200k in Sunway. A similar house in Singapore will cost almost 1million Singapore $!!
After thinking about it Joanne and I decided that we are not going to spend the rest of our lives chasing a better life here on earth!
If by God's grace and blessing, He place us in a nice place like Singapore or Australia, then so be it. But if He place us in a Terrible Traffic Jam City like KL then we will ask God for our purpose and job that we need to do there.
We will invest our time and energy for better rewards in Heaven and not on earth!
Matthew 6:19 - 21
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
