Hhmm... this looks like a very normal pic.. nothing special, right?
Well well... what d'ya know.. this photo was selected for inclusion in the newly released 9th edition of the Schmap Manchester Guide!

If you do nt have a single clue what is that, neither did I before I got an email indication that this picture has been selected to be part of the guide.. LOL

The site can be found below though if you're interested to go have a look...

Old Trafford and Salford

It's nothing big.. but since this is the first ever time any of my pictures got selected for anything at all, thought I'd jst blog about it... :P

Anyway on a totally irrelevant note, there's such a thing called "playing Settlers too much within a week"... enough of Settlers... seriously, enough...
*yeah rite.. lol!*

Take My Life

Take my life and let it be,
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands and let them move,
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be,
Filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use,
Every power as You choose.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.

Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord I pour,
At Your feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be,
Ever, only, all for Thee.
Take myself and I will be,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.

"Missions exists because worship doesn't"

"The ultimate goal in missions is to glorify God"

"It is time for this generation to rise"

"Don't be a bag of salt, but go out and salt the earth"

"Be a light that shines, not a light that blinds"

"Do not be so heavenly-minded, that you are of no earthly use"

and also

"Do not be so earthly-minded, that you are of no heavenly use"

We have been complacent and too comfortable where we are for too long now...

Occasion : College CG Camp '09

Venue : El-Sanctuary, Alor Gajah

Dates : 28 - 31-Aug-09

Theme : APOFASI - for better, for worse

What is inspiring to one, may not be as inspiring to another..
What is exciting to one, may not be as exciting to another..
What is a challenge to one, may not be as big a challenge to another..

While not every single one has been blessed, I'm still glad that all could make it for this year's College CG Camp - Apofasi.

It was awesome to some (me included).. maybe not so to others.. but everyone will have to agree that we had the best camp food yet!
As one of the campers put it - "it was cooked with love.." :)

It was fun, yet serious..

It was also relaxing, yet tiring as well..

It was good to be able to play BRIDGE again.. LOL!

It was good to have Annette back...
I feel that I should attend less camps where Annette is the speaker, 'cause at almost everytime during her sessions, I'll feel slapped in the face, kick in the a**, and as if someone's shouting, "There! You asked for it!"
No, I was joking about attending less.. in fact, I should attend more... I need these slapping-kicking sessions every now and then..

All in all, I thank the Lord for He was present at the camp

Now comes the tough part..

We've heard
We've seen
We've felt
We've been inspired
We've been encouraged
We've been challenged

Now what?

There's a lot to think about..
A lot to question ourselves..

Will we answer the call?
Remember Moses

Will we say no to defilement?
Remember Daniel and his friends

Or will we continue as if nothing's changed?
Will we continue to cave into public opinion?
Will we, like Pilate, go with the crowd?
Will we follow the flow, whichever pulls us stronger?

Will we be fighting for brotherhood? Fighting for our brothers?
Remember the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh
Or will we forget about brotherhood and go to war like the 9 and a half tribes almost did?

Will we run towards those who're in trouble?
Will we offer love and help even to those who have fallen into sin?

Are we willing to be an offering?
Are we willing to go for God's glory?
Remember Nehemiah
Or will we just decide to remain comfortable?

Are we willing to listen to God's voice?

And when the time comes to decide, to make an apofasi, let us not make it alone..
We are a family.. a brotherhood...

Will we be there for one another?

Through ups and downs, thick and thin, frowns and smiles.. even in craziness... :P

I hope so... :)

And to a dear friend who has answered the call...
All the best to you as you brave yourself for a new and probably challenging adventure..

It's all happening too soon...
But well, like I've said, you're just an AirAsia away..

May God go with you even as you face lots of anxieties and uncertainties..
He's worth trusting in..

Take care

We will miss you

Who Am I

Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning Star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling,
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours.
I am Yours.

Who am I?
That the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again.
Who am I?
That the voice that calmed the sea,
Would call out through the rain,
And calm the storm in me.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling,
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling,
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours.
I am Yours.
I am Yours.

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
I am Yours..
I am Yours..

The Tale of 4 Stadiums (and an unrelated Platform)

Once upon a time, there lived 4 stadiums.. namely Old Trafford, Emirates, Stamford Bridge and Anfield.

Old Trafford lived in Manchester.
Both Emirates and Stamford Bridge were from London, while Anfield came from Liverpool.

Over time, they became among the most well known stadiums not only in England, but in Europe as well.

A traveller once asked them, "Which of you is the best?"

Old Trafford, with full confidence, claimed to be the best among the 4.

Indeed, it was very impressive and fully deserved to be called the best!

Emirates roared in disagreement, claiming to be on par, if not better.

Well, it is after all the most modern stadium among the 4.. but whether it was the best of not remains debatable.

Stamford Bridge was not in a very confident mood, knowing that its facilities and size could not match that of Old Trafford and Emirates.

Nevertheless, it was quietly confident that it was not the worst.. lol...

And finally, the *clears throat* worst of them all - the title was always gonna go to Anfield..

Being one of the oldest may not do it much good after all... but who knows, they might be undergoing some kinda restructuring soon enough if some rich Russian or Arabian buys over Liverpool FC.


This is totally unrelated to the above..

Anyway, I finally got to see the Platform 9¾ in real life! LOL!

This is just a replica lah.. haha.. but it's still something...

Letter to Bank Manager

This is an actual letter written to bank manager by an old lady who got her check bounced by the bank due to lack of funds. it was first published in the New York Times in 2006.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month.

By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it.

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank. My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.

I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, — when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person. My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an offense under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope. Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete. I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative. Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof. In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.

I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further.

When you call me, press buttons as follows:


#1. To make an appointment to see me.

#2. To query a missing payment.

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4. To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required. Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry. The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

#10. This is a second reminder to press* for English. While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement. May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client

Kings of Europe

After all the drama

After all the controversial refereeing

Take note.. this was the Norwegian ref who single-handedly helped send Barca to the final

After all the heart-breaking moments

The 'Dream Team' finally emerge victorious at the expense of Man Utd


FC Barcelona of Spain are the newly crowned Champions of the UEFA Champions' League

Well, based on last night's performance, they fully deserved it... but do remember that if it was not for a certain Norwegian referee (in their previous match), they won't even be in the Final

Nevertheless, as Ferguson has admitted, the better team won

Love Story meets Viva La Vida

Perak is still in limbo, as its internal political war is still far from over..

There's certainly no love between the PR and BN... not surprising isn't it?

Anyway, let's take a little sidetrack away from the never-ending political issues of Boleh-land.. check this video out.. pretty cool..

What has become of our dear beloved country?
It's sad that these are happening..

Even the police force is behind those who're wicked and corrupted..

M'sia boleh! Tangkap siapa pun boleh.. -.-"

How can one be this disgraceful?

It's disrespectful to the freedom of the people..

What happened to freedom?
What happened to the people's choice?

Wanted : Don Movers

Leader : Don S.A. (real name unknown)

Crime : Conning poor souls over the phone, misusing Maxis' free calls.

Verdict : GUILTY!

Don Movers are known to be a Mafia gang dangerously and conning-ly cunning.
They prey on innocent, nice people who do not deserved to be conned.
The number of victims has been increasing daily, now believed to be 9 (do correct me if I'm wrong).

Beware of them.. be very very aware of them.

The Policee has issued a warrant to catch these people, dead or alive!
Whoever can bring any of them in will get an award.. (details of award to be given upon their capture)

One of them has openly admitted of her crime.. thus it shouldn't be that difficult to track her down.

Notify the Policee Department immediately if found or seen any of the below..

Your cooperation is very much appreciated.

The most guilty among them all!

If only it was as sweet as an apple pie..
There would then be no need to ever cry..
And thus less trees will have to die..

While it's just another goodbye, it's still a goodbye nonetheless.

And today is that day.

The day I bid farewell... after 1.5 years... I will not forget you.. I will miss you..

Tears tried to fall.. but no matter how hard it tried, it didn't.

Goodbye, 12G09..

And after this goodbye, it will be..
HELLO 15F21!!

In Memory Of..

Markus Ng Chung Yau
(1985 - 2009)

It's a sudden

It's a shock

It's a great lost

It's saddening

And yet, if you're still here, you'd say, "God has a plan, and His plan is above that of ours"

You have lived a significant, though short life.. and have been a blessing to many.

Such a gifted and talented young man, with idealistic views and great dreams for Malaysia.. truly a man after God's heart, and one of the nicest guys I've ever known.

You will be sorely missed.

And as in Hon Yau's words - "we can say goodbye with hope, 'cause we know our goodbye is not the end.."

May your legacy live on..

Til we meet again.

End - Start

Is life a never-ending race?

Some seem to think so...
If it's so, then it's a never-ending race with lots and lots of beginnings.

Anyway, here's to a brand new start to a potentially challenging year.
It's not easy to start off a new year with many prophesying that the year will bring about a difficult ending.

Oh well..
Let's take each day at a time.

Each new day brings forth new hope.

Just a little early glimpse to the new year in Melawati
