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!

The Honeymoon!

I have been meaning to blog about this for sometime now but had no time. Thank God for Raya holidays!
Originally we plan to go to Pangkor for the honeymoon. Other ideas include Bukit Tinggi and Redang.

But we are very happy with where we ended up!
Praise God for His guidance and for sending the right people (Ah Ling)to help us when we needed it!

Thus right after the wedding we went to Cameron Highlands for our honeymoon!

Book a hotel room at Strawberry Park.

Got the Ramadan offer at RM160 per night.

We choose this place because we like nature, it is not far too far away and it is peaceful and has plenty of fresh air!

Also it was a very cost effective honeymoon! I think we spend about RM500 for the whole thing!

The hotel room is very nice and comfortable!!But we can't spend the whole day in the hotel room, so we did go visit the usual places like the Tea plantation....
A cool strawberry farm that makes all these wonderful dessert!And my secret cafe! I always visit this nice little cosy cafe when I am in Cameron Highlands!

They are not very good at advertising so if you don't look really hard for it, you will probably not find this place.

I use to come here alone (i mean as a single guy). But I am so glad to be able to share this with my wife!
They serve very nice scones, strawberry cheese cake and apple pie!
I like their warm strawberry tea too!

But what really got Joanne was the chicken pie! Joanne said it was the best chicken pie she has ever had!
She is not exactly a crazy for food person but she finish her meal, she "pa pao"/bungkus another 8 MORE TO GO!!!!
Wah Lau! Never seen her so crazy for chicken pie before! Actually she brought it back for our parents to enjoy.

Come to think about it...I never got to eat the bunkus chicken pie back in KL!
Anyway we are glad we choose Cameron Highlands for our very nice, cosy and inexpensive honeymoon!
The other part of the honeymoon story is censored! But the picture below will give some clues lah!

The BIG 30!

I am 30 today!
But there will be no big celebrations or etc!
I had my big bash already last month!
And it was the best party ever!

This year is a simple celebration!
Just with family!

I have the best present I could ever have already!
Now it is only a time for reflection!
I am not proud of my past. (and I am not talking about achievements and successes by the world's standard)
I could not care less if I never travel the world, or buy a big house and car or have a PHD as a title.
(no offence intended to anyone with these things)
However what I regret the most is wasting my early years (20-30years old) on being so self indulgent. Me! Me! Me! I! I! I!
Self gratification was my theme over the last 10 years!
My selfishness almost destroyed my life and would have brought hurt and shame to the people that are closest to me!
So I am extremely grateful to God for being so gracious and merciful to me.
I will not be where I am today if not for His love and grace. He has given me a second chance!
I have lived in the wildnerness for the last 10 years! It is time to return to God!
I hope and pray that the next 10 years of my life God will use Joanne and I to be a blessing to our love ones and to all those around us!!

P.S. Lala! This pic is for you!
