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!

Most Important Contract of our Life!

Last Monday Joanne and I went to the Assistant's Registrar house to collect the form to get married.
No we are not getting married that soon!
It is in August and we will register in August but we want to get the things ready and know what is the procedure.

There are a lot of things to get ready for a wedding and we want to get as many things done as soon as possible.
Although we have a lot of friends who want to help, and I would like them to help but a lot of things has to be done by ourselves because it is our decision.

Planning a wedding as a couple is actually a very good exercise to do together. We have learn more about each other. What we like and don't like, how to negotiate and compromise with each other, how to deal with the stress and anxiety together.

And hopefully thought this we become stronger as one in our marriage!

However we still need a lot of help from our friends and family!

So let me start first by thanking
Priscilla for the Ring pillow and borrowing your kids!
Tairven, Benjamin and Jason for the prewedding photos,
Yvonne for agreeing to be my main coordinator during the wedding,
Jeff for agreeing to being my bestman and Soo Teng for being the bridemade,
Alfred agreeing to help me with the catering,
Richard for helping me with the balloon decorations and etc.
There are a lot of people to thank and I will update this list as I remember or as it comes up!
Joanne and I Praise God for so many wonderful close Friends and Family!!

My Weekend Trip to Sarawak?!

I always wondered why the land of the hornbill has a Kuching for its main city?!?!? Would not the Kuching eat the bird?!?

Anyway I was in Kuching, Sarawak last weekend. I followed my CEO, Ms Moey to the Teacher Christian Fellowship Conference and Dinner. She was the official Speaker and I was there to promote Methodist College KL!

The TCF paid for her accommodation only so I had to look for a cheaper alternative and so one of the TCF committee member book for me a room in this hotel.

Looks a little bit shabby but what do you expect for RM65 a night.
The room was quite ok lah! Spacious and has own attached bathroom with air con and hot water.
TV was hopeless but I had no time to watch TV anyway!
Managed to walk around the bazaar area to do a little bit of window shopping as soon as I arrive in Kuching.
This Sarawak assembly is suppose to cost RM200 million. The local says that it actually cost RM100million and the other RM100million went to somewhere else!
I must say Sarawak has some unique infrastructure!
In the evening I got to meet up with my old friend, colleague, housemate, and church member! Mui Fan! Too bad she cannot make it for my wedding. So... feeling bad, she belanja me makan! hahahahaha!!
First time I had pork satay! Not bad!! Don't even need the gravy! Also had some dessert called "Matahorn". It was good to taste some local food there.
Next day (Sat), early morning I had to go to ACS for the TCF conference. I think it is amazing how the churches here can come together to build a centre for everyone!
At night we had the TCF Dinner at Sarawak Club!
It is a very nice club with a lot of heritage! Just too bad it went up in flames a couple of years back!
All they had left was some stuff they put on display.
Good thing they build in back very nicely!
I had a good time at dinner. The food was nice and I got to seat at the VIP dinner!
During the dinner I got caught unprepared to say a few words about the college. But I thank God for my gift of the gab and had no problems giving a short speech!
Ms Moey was up next and she really inspired all the younger teachers there!
The next day (Sun) I went to Trinity Methodist Kuching.
It is a huge church!
It even has its own bookshop! Mind you the bookshop is not small!
Neither is the Church Sanctuary!
I had to go for 2 services!!(8am and 10.30am) I was given an opportunity to talk to the whole congregation. Made me a bit nervous cause there were so many people. But it was a good Sunday to talk to the Church cause it was Girls Brigade enrolment service and I had the attention of over 60 girls there! So it was a very productive trip!

Finally, a Sarawakian Education Agent took me to eat some Ko Long Mee (Sarawak style). Not bad! But it us too bad I didn't had more time to go sight seeing or travel more in Kuching. Actually not that I couldn't, but I now don't feel right going on holiday without my Joanne!

Our Church

This is Faith Christian Centre.
This is the church where our wedding will be and this is the church we are currently attending and committed to. It is an Anglican Church. I can just hear people saying now. Why are you attending a Anglican Church when you are originally from a Methodist background and Joanne is from a AOG background.

Well the reason is that we are not to particular which denomination we go to as long as..,
1. Their doctrines are sound.
2. Their leaders are spiritually, dynamic, humble and zealous in serving God.
3. The Church is really making a difference in the community.
4. Etc.
But also practicality also plays a role.
This Church is next to where Joanne work and in her line of work, this helps a lot!

Also we have a good relationship with the senior pastor there already.
(went thought marriage counselling course with him...TWICE SOME MORE!)

However to be honest I do miss the fellowship and friends in my previous churches in
Trinity Methodist Penang, Ampang Gospel Centre and Rumah Methodist Nilai.

Pictures of our Wedding Sanctuary!

Couple of weekends ago, I had to to for a Church Leaders Training at my current church (Faith Christian Centre)
During that training I had a chance to see another wedding that was held there! I thought it would be good to take some pictures of the place to show our friends and family where our wedding was gonna be!

I think the church can cater for about 400 people... but dunno got that many people coming or not actually!

Overall this is a nice place for a wedding and I think it would be more special when all our friends, family and love ones fill the whole sanctuary

This couple very shy to Kiss! Hahaha!! Must get help from the Pastor!

Less then 4 more months before the music starts!
Can't wait!
