PJGH Youth Camp 2010

There's something about camps that leave you feeling all nostalgic and gushing over fond memories after all is said and done.

Youth Camp 2010 was no exception. In fact, it rocked! Totally.

Was incredibly blessed to have been a part of it and to have experienced God in so many ways.

Pictures will be coming soon:)

I'm typing this looking back at the NOJ event with fond memories; memories that go further back than just last night. It's been a great experience working with the cast and the rest of the crew over the last few months, culminating with our debut performance last night.

It was a a great learning experience for all of us. I saw actors mature and people rising up to the occasion. I developed a few tricks, myself too. Heh. Overall, I think we had great fun and grew closer as a team.

As such, I was a little disappointed that our performances last night and earlier this morning seemed all too conclusive after all the effort that everyone had put in. It was then that I was told that we have been invited by Subang Jaya Gospel Centre to showcase NOJ at their Rise to the Challenge a.k.a. R2dC Youth Conference later this year. Praise God for that!

Well, auditions are also open for NOJ 2: The Wrath of Luci.


Every blessing you pour out, I'll turn back to praise.

No Ordinary Journey

Today IS the day!

After months of rehearsals and setup, we premiere the latest PJGH production tonight to what we hope would be a packed house. Excitement was certainly in the air as we ran through our final official practice last night. We are certainly hopeful for great things:)

The invitation was dubbed “the opportunity of a lifetime”! Travelers embark on an adventure that takes them to mountain or valley. Choices are presented. Decisions are to be made. Eternal destiny awaits. This is No Ordinary Journey

Will you join us?

the death of blogging?

Hello world!!:)

I had started the year telling myself to make it a point to post something at least once a month this year, but needless to say, it has been a futile attempt on my part.

Blowing off the dust on my personal blogosphere, I have been wondering if the rise of social networks like Facebook and Twitter will one day render blogs a thing of the past. Certainly makes one wonder.

Well, to start, blogging certainly hasn't been something that I think about as often as I used to. Oftentime, it's just so much easier to pick up the phone and post what I'm thinking about on Facebook. It's quick, I get to say what is on my mind at that moment, and I don't have to crack my head to come up with a post that sounds 'interesting' enough to my readers. Heh.

Nevertheless, on the flip side of the coin, I realise that I do love writing. I do love just rambling on about my thoughts occasionally. And of course, I do love it when people post comments to share their thoughts about what I've just written.

I guess that keeps me going here:)

So keep checking back here for updates as I hope to kick-start this part of my life that's been kinda sidelined for awhile.

Life's been good. God's been good. And I hope you have been too;)

Take me back to Bali...

Monday, June 14, 2010


"Everything is permissible" – but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God – even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

- Excerpts from the First Letter to the Corinthians


It’s not an enviable job, but if something’s gotta be done, it’s gotta be done.

My only aim –
to speak the truth in love,
to correct,
to guide.

May our hearts be humble enough to listen…

…without prejudice.


Sanctify us by the truth, Your word is truth.
- John 17:17 (ESV)

The last time I opened up myself to a trusted someone about an issue I was going through, I was hurt real bad.

I don't know if I can ever be that transparent slate again.

But I know I HAVE to if I want to grow.

the race

My eyes beheld a sea of red lights the moment I finally hit the Federal Highway. It was 6.40 in the morning but traffic was like wha-?? I inched into the left-most lane and there in front of me was a silver Naza (Peugeot) Bestari (206) - a horrible local incarnation of an otherwise pretty cute vehicle.

The man/woman behind the wheel of the aforesaid Naza (Peugeot) Bes-whatever drove the vehicle like each day came with 48 hours to spend. Cars were zipping by and he/she was plodding along at what, 50km/h?? 2 seconds behind 'silver slow' were enough for me to decide on a manouevre to the right, and after another 3 seconds, I was free! Yes!! I was in the middle lane and soon I moved on to the farthest right lane. Yes, life in the fast lane is what it's really all about here in KL.

I stole a glance to my left to the Naza on my left. Eat dust. I was slowly pulling ahead of Malaysia's reason for an economic recession. No longer had I passed the span of a car though, the sea of red in front of me started to glow brighter. Not a good sign. Soon I would have to hit the brakes. Surely my gallant overtaking efforts weren't going to waste?

I looked back to the middle lane. Surely I could find a gap somewhere for me to just slide in and avoid imminent deceleration? Negative. I glanced over to Naza in the slow lane. Still going slow. But the path before it looked clear. Could this be potentially somewhat embarrassing? Ugh.

I was stuck. I couldn't move from where I was and eventually I had to join the rest of the glowing red lights in front of me. I watched helplessly as Naza happily trudged along, at 50km/h, soon getting lost in the traffic much further ahead.

Was reminded of two things this morning:

- It is oft-said, "Slow and steady wins the race."

- Unc Dexter once said (and I paraphrase), "The race that we're running is not a 100m dash, but rather a long-distance marathon."

Finish well.

the numbers that maketh the day

2 on a journey,
3 sets of 4 to zip around,
11 to entertain,
70 was a lifetime milestone,
1 to praise at the end of it all.

Today was a GOOD day:)

turning up the heat

Gahh!! It's been so hot here in KL!

Looking forward to a cold shower after a good workout later.

Yeah. This is totally random.

keep holding on, never letting go

Do you remember the time your heart was moved to tears?
Can you look back on the moment after all these years?
On the moment love broke through and heaven seemed so near
Do you remember the time your heart was moved to tears?

Do you remember the day you first let Jesus in?
How he gently and tenderly washed away your sin
Don't you know that He still cares the way He did back then?
Do you remember the day you first let Jesus in?

Keep holding on
Never letting go
We're not far
from the end of the road

In a moment love broke through and heaven seemed so near
Do you remember the time your heart was moved to tears?

goodbye 2009, hello 2010

Thank you LORD...

for every friend and loved one that You bless me with 
for every safe journey traveled
for the food and sustenance that you place on my table 
for every prayer answered
for Your constant provision in times of need
for Your protection from harm and danger
for Your immeasurable grace that you bestow on me
for teaching me to love even the unlovable
for showing me how to forgive others just as you have forgiven me
for all the great times
for all the bad times
for the times You lift me up when fall down
for being a GOD who journeys with me through thick and thin


Was just at PJGH's Watchnight Service just a couple of hours ago. If there was one word that could describe the general theme of the meeting, "thankfulness" would win it hands down. Several Scripture verses were provided to us to meditate on as we contemplated over how God protected and carried us through the year. The speaker also spoke on the subject. I was even involved in a hilarious skit that spoke the message of how we shouldn't take things for granted.

2009 has been a challenging year of roller coaster-like ups and downs. I am actually thankful to be alive and sane in all honesty.

There were some great heights reached during the year, just as there were some really low valleys that I had to trudge through. There were times of celebration, as there were times of mourning. This was a year where relationships flourished, as well as suffered. This was a year I was blessed with some of the happiest moments in my life, as well as the saddest. This was a year I capitalised on some of the opportunities that came my way, while horribly missing out on some others.

I only stand tall today because God has enabled me to. He truly is a God who is able to do immeasurably more that we can ask or imagine, and I want to testify to His faithfulness in carrying me even through the darkest storms of my life.

I walk into a new year with renewed hope for the future. My hand inside His.
