bank account

me: Would it be possible to transfer the church account from Melaka Raya to Malim Jaya. I don't have to go all the way to Melaka Raya every time.
boss: yeah... we have thought of it.. but what happened when you leave the church... it is nearer for us.
me: yeah... but still it is nearer to go to the bank (Malim Jaya Public Bank) in case of emergency.
boss: ...... (smile) ..... (said nothing)

well... my first thought..... what lah... can think like that one... so selfish one.... I might be here in the church for another year or more, and I have to travel all the way to Melaka Raya every week until I leave the church. Also... not that the account cannot be transfered back to Melaka Raya Public Bank. Just because you think that I'm going to leave the church (sooner or later), you rather let the bank account be in Melaka Raya where it will be an additional 20 minutes drive. Not to be calculative but think of the amount of saving of i) time, ii) petrol, iii) vehicle maintenance, and iv) energy. What does it take to having this wonderful saving.... just a group decision and a letter authorizing the bank to transfer the account. Just that.... but no... you might be leaving so better not do the transfer.

All this stuffs makes me want to leave the church faster. Not a good thought but if that is how the boss sees things.... then the probabilities of it happening is much higher. Be careful what we wish for.

Right now.... just asking God what He wants me to do. Find that there's no umphh in personal life or even in the church. Need a revival.... really need a revival.

"Revival fire fall,
revival fire fall"

Ceramah Motivasi

went to give a ceramah at SMK Durian Tunggal. went with Daniel Ee. he helped me with the powerpoint. really appreciate his effort. reached there at 10 to 11, looked for Puan Sung. it is through her that I was able to come and share with the students. she brought us to the canteen for lunch. then met Mr Tan who took our biodata.

the ceramah is at one of the school's smart classroom, more like a lecture hall. about 34 of them came.... all indians... Form 3 and 5.

had a good time sharing with them about how to achieve succes in life... they were very responsive and attentive listener. enjoyed the record breaking activity. do hope that they've learned something from the talk. not enough time to cover all the material that I've prepared. 2 and a half hour and yet still not enough time..... wow..... I myself can't believe it.

newey... really enjoyed sharing with them.... may God bless them in their coming exams.

I just don't think it's fair!

me: Why is mommy look so sad?
she: I just don't think it's fair!

and then she sulked the whole night.

reason becoz... she couldn't go to JJ to repair her broken spec.

she is still using the old one... no problem with the old ones.

she wants the new ones becoz she said that it makes her look better.

hmmmm..... yalo... it does make her look better....

Great software!!!!

Found this great software from Download.Com.

It's called World Wind. You can look at any places on earth through NASA satellite images.

Here is an image of my hometown Bukit Rambai, with the surrounding area. The beach is Klebang beach, with Tanjong Kling area. With the program, I can zoom in to my hometown, although the image may not be so clear.

Now I don't have to buy any more maps, but can just see the real area with this program.

Now where is this Nagaland where my ISLT roommate lives? Who knows I might even see his face with this program. hehehe

Who is more dangerous... a guy or a girl.

"I have heard that a man can undress a woman in his mind in less than 10 seconds. Well a woman can be emotionally married in her mind in less than 10 seconds. Both men and women need to strive toward purity in all that they do and say toward each other." Emotional Purity at page 120.
Wow... I think the woman is more dangerous.
In less than 10 seconds... the poor guy is married to her alredi. The poor guy pulak is still struggling to strip her and before he realised it, he alreadi got trapped in marriage.... hehehehee.
Man.... must remember to wear my wedding ring...
if not I will be emotionally married to many girls...
but then again...
with my current look, there won't be any girls wanting to marry me in their right

Naughty daughter

hehehehe this is funny.

hope my daughters won't be this naughty when they grow up.
I think this girl has no brothers in the family lah.
Just 7 years old.... sudah miang (itchy) alredi kah.

.... or maybe I should change my bed to the one without legs.
curiousity......knows no bounds

Strong hands.

Came across this posting... Unbelieveable.. hehahahahaha
wonder what position until can be like that.
oh... maybe she is trying to look and see.
maybe the girls can give us guys some enlightenment on how on earth this could happen.

Now... why is there pain on my neck now....

I want a hug!

It's such a wonderful feeling to have a hug from Annabelle... (of course from her mother also lah... but this posting is about Annabelle).

In the past week, Annabelle has been giving me hugs. Everytime I reached Michelle mother's house, I would ask Annabelle, "Daddy wants a hug." and hold out my hand to her. She would look at me and then smile. Then she would open wide her arms, welcoming me to hug her. I would carry her and give her a hug and then kiss her cheek. Such a wonderful experience.

Now that she knows the routine, she would sometimes make the first move of opening up her arms for me to carry and hug her. She would even say it out to me, "Daddy, daddy,... hug Belle Belle." Such joy.. Thank you Lord.

Chronicle of Riddick

Watch the show last night on the computer. Interesting with superb graphic cinemation. Van Diesel acting is wonderful for this movie. like the show though there are some New Age influence in it. The sad thing is that Jesus's name is still being used as a curse.

Wonder what's the next episode will be like.

Christ is coming soon!

I received this email regarding the end times. My opinion with regards to this author's testimony is that it should help us to be ready for Christ. We should commit ourselves to fully serve God and have a close relationship with Him.

This email is not Scripture and should not be treated as having the same authority as Scripture. However, it should help us to draw closer to God. This is the email:


This message was transcribed by Ruthanne Garlock from a tape we received in Singapore on August 30th, 1998 from Wee Tiong How. He had just returned from the Isle of Patmos where he attended a prayer retreat with a small group of Singaporeans, and where Samuel Doctorian related this experience to them.

I was here alone in a house on the Isle of Patmos for several weeks to pray and seek the Lord. I found a little chapel - St. Nicolas's Chapel - where no one ever goes. I went there and poured out my heart before God. I found a rock on the side of a hill where I would go to sit and pray - meditation and reading the Bible. I ate very little during those days. Several times I went to the cave of John where he saw the great Revelation.

While meditating for one month in this solitary place, I thought, "I wonder if the Lord will ever send a tenth angel?" I'd seen angels nine times before - in England, in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in Amman, Jordan, in Jerusalem, and angel that delivered a woman from being hanged in upper Egypt; I saw the ninth angel in Beirut in the midst of war. The angel physically awakened me at 3:00 in the morning and told me to get out of the country immediately. I am grateful to the Lord until today - I don't know what might have happened to me if the angel had not come. Heaven will tell that one-day. So I wondered whether I would see an angel for the tenth time. There were times when I was praying when I felt such presence I asked, "Lord, I wonder if an angel is coming now? " But it was not so. One night I even dreamt about an angel. He told me to fly in my dream and I did - but that was only a dream. I wanted to see a real angel, as I had seen nine times before.

On June 20 at 3:50am, here in Patmos suddenly my room was full of light, and there are no lights around here. It is a house all by itself at the end of the road near a monastery. Lo and behold, when I was wide-awake - I saw five beautiful angels. I saw their faces -perfect and human-like, but full of light. I saw their eyes, their hair, their hands.

On my right side were two angels, and when I looked to the left I saw three other angels with wings. They had beautiful white robes falling to the floor - something I can't describe with human words. I wondered why five angels had come, but I was trembling and shaking. I wanted to cry, but I could not. Just before I saw these angels in the Spirit. I had seen myself in a great meeting of multitudes, and I was preaching in English. An interpreter was on my left with dark hair and a grey suit, but I can't remember what language he was speaking. I was prophesying this message: "My church, you preach love, you teach love, but you need to practice love - to show love. There is need of unity in my body. There are many divisions among you. My spirit will not move and work where there is no unity. There is carnality in my church; too much uncleanness in my church. I desire and I want a holy people. I died to made you holy." While I was prophesying in the spirit I was trembling. My eyes opened and I was looking at the great multitude. And suddenly, in the midst of the prophecy, these mighty angels appeared. I went back from the pulpit and thought I was going to fall down. I am now wide-awake, but this is all happening in the spirit. Some power helped me not to fall down and I wondered what was happening.

Then suddenly the first angel on my right side said," We are five angels from the five continents. We are here to give you messages from the five continents of the world." The moment I heard that, I also heard the multitude crying out, "Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh;" I believe that multitude saw the angels also. Somehow the Lord showed me that in the days to come, in many parts of the world, God is going to reveal Himself through ministering angels. It's going to happen publicly; it's going to happen in churches - thousands of people seeing angels at the same time. They will be ministering to the Body in these last days. Then came this message from the angels:" What you see and hear, tell it to the nations." So it's not something to keep to myself. Whether they accept it or don't accept it, I have to tell it to the nations.


The first angel said:" I have a message for all of Asia." When he said that, in a spilt few seconds, I could see all of China, India, the Asian countries like Vietnam, Laos - I've never been to those countries. I saw the Philippines, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. And then the angel showed me all of Papua New Guinea, Irian Jaya and down to Australia and New Zealand.
"I am the angel of Asia," he said. And in his hand I saw a tremendous trumpet that he is going to blow all over Asia. Whatever the angel said, it's going to happen with the trumpet of the Lord all over Asia. Millions are going to hear the mighty voice of the Lord. Then the angel said, "There shall be disaster, starvation - many will die from hunger. Strong winds will be looked like has never happened before. A great part shall be shaken and destroyed. Earthquakes will take place all over Asia and the sea will cover the earth.

I saw this on June 20. Today is August 16. A few weeks ago I heard the news of villages completely wiped out and washed into the sea in Papua New Guinea. Thousand of lives in great jeopardy. That happened a few weeks ago, and the angel told me it is going to happen all over Asia. "The earth will fall into the sea," I heard the angel say," part of Australia will be shaken. Australia will be divided, and a great part will go under the ocean. "This was frightening - I wondered whether I was hearing right. But the angel said," Millions will die in China and in India. Nation will be against nation, brother against brother. Asians will fight each other. Nuclear weapons shall be used, killing millions." Twice I heard the words, " Catastrophic! Catastrophic!" then the angel said, "Financial crisis will come to Asia. I will shake the world."

I was trembling while the angel was speaking. Then he looked at me and smiled and said," There shall be the greatest spiritual awakening - bondage will be broken. Barriers will be removed. And all over Asia - China - India - people will turn to Christ. In Australia there shall be tremendous revival." I heard the angel of Asia say, " It is the last harvest." Then as if the Lord were speaking, he said," I shall prepare My church for the return of Christ." I was happy with such good news after the message of judgment. All the time the five angels were in my room I could feel their presence - it was tremendous.


Then I saw that the second angel had a sickle in his hand, such as is used in harvesting. The second angel said," Harvest time has come in Israel and the countries all the way to Iran." I saw those countries in a few split seconds. "All of Turkey and those [inaudible;] countries that have refused me and refused my message of love shall hate each other and kill one another." I saw the angel raise the sickle and come down on all the Middle East countries.

I saw Iran, Persia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, all of Georgia - Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, all of Asia Minor - full of blood. I saw blood all over these countries. And I saw fire; Nuclear weapons used in many of those countries. Smoke rising from everywhere. Sudden destruction - men destroying one another.

I heard these words, " Israel, Oh Israel, the great judgment has come." The angel said, "The chosen, the church, the remnant, shall be purified. The Spirit of God shall prepare the children of God." I saw fires rising to heaven. The angel said," This is the final judgment. My church shall be purified, protected and ready for the final day. Men will die from thirst. Water shall be scarce all over the Middle East. Rivers shall dry up, and men will fight for water in those countries." The angel showed me that the United Nations shall be broken in pieces because of the crisis in the Middle East. There shall be no more United Nations. The angel with the sickle shall reap the harvest.


Then one of the angels with wings showed me Europe from one end to the other - from the north all the way down to Spain and Portugal. In his hand he had a scale of measurement. I saw him fly over Europe, and I heard the words, " I am grieved. I am grieved. Unrighteousness, uncleanness, ungodliness - all over Europe. The sin has risen to heaven. The Holy Spirit is grieved." I saw the rivers of Europe flooding and covering millions of houses. Millions drown. After seeing this, I read the news a few weeks ago. Czechoslovakia had the worst flooding ever. I also heard that the big river in China is in tremendous danger of thousands of houses being destroyed in flooding. I didn't know all this news until after I had seen the vision and heard what the angels told me.

Suddenly I heard earthquakes all over Europe. " Countries that have had no earthquakes shall be shaken," said the angel. And suddenly, in my spirit, I saw the Eiffel Tower in Paris crumbling falling down. A great part of Germany destroyed. The great city of London - destruction everywhere. I saw floods all over Scandinavia. I looked to the south and saw Spain and Portugal passing through hunger and great destruction.

Many will die from hunger all over Spain and Portugal. I was disturbed by all this news, and I said," Lord, what about your children?" The angel said," I shall prepare them. They shall be looking for the appearing of the Lord. Many will cry to me in those days and I will save them. I shall perform mighty miracles for them and show them My power." So in the midst of great destruction, there will be the grace of God in those countries. I was happy that God has His protection over His children.


Now we go to Africa. I saw the fourth angel with wings fly over Africa, and I could see from Capetown in the south all the way to the north of Cairo - I saw all the countries there, more than fifty of them. The angel of Africa had a sword in his hand - a tremendous, sharp sword. Suddenly I heard him say, " Innocent blood has been shed. Divisions amongst the people generations far from the Lord - they have killed one another, thousands of people. I have seen my faithful children in Africa, and I shall reward all the faithful in the continent of Africa. I shall bless them abundantly. I shall control the weather - scorching and burning of the sun in some parts. Great rivers shall dry up, and millions will die from starvation. In other parts, flooding. Foundations shall be shaken. My sword shall judge the unrighteous and the bloodthirsty. So many earthquakes shall happen that rivers shall flow different directions in the continent, flooding many villages." I saw great pieces falling from the sky over different parts of Africa " There shall be trembling of the earth like has not been seen since the creation. None shall escape the sword of the Lord." I saw the River Nile drying up. It is the god of Egypt. Fishes dead and stinking all over Egypt. A great part of the middle of Africa will be covered with water - millions dying. "Lord," I said, "It is all bad news. All destruction. Any good news?" The Lord said, "The final day has come. Judgment day is here. My love has been refused now, and the end has come." I was shaking and trembling. I thought I cannot bear it.


Then I saw the last angel flying over North and South America - all the way from the North Pole down to Argentina. >From the east of the U.S.A. to California. I saw in his hand a bowl. The angel said he would pour out over these countries the judgments that were in the bowl. Then I heard the angel say, "No justice anymore. No righteousness. No holiness. Idolatry. Materialism. Drunkenness. Bondage of sin. Shedding of innocent blood - millions of babies being killed before they are born. Families are broken. An adulterous generation. Sodom and Gomorrah is here. The days of Noah are here. False preachers. False prophets. Refusing of my love. Many of them have the imitation of religion, but denying the real power.

When I heard all that, I begged the angel, "Can you not wait for a little while? Don't pour it. Give a chance for repentance." The angel said, "Many times God has spared and has spoken, but they have not listened. His patience has come to an end. Beware, the time has come. They have loved money and pleasure more than they have loved Me." As the angel began to pour from the bowl in his hand, I saw tremendous icebergs melting. When that happened I saw floods all over Canada and North America - all the rivers flood; destruction everywhere. I heard the world market collapsing with mighty earthquakes, and New York skyscrapers were tumbling - millions dying.

I saw ships in the ocean sinking. I heard explosions all over the north country. I saw the angel pouring over Mexico and two oceans joining together- the Atlantic and the Pacific. A great part of north Brazil covered with water, the Amazon River turning into a great sea. Forests destroyed and flooded. Major cities in Brazil destroyed; earthquakes in many places. As the angel poured, great destruction took place in Chile and Argentina as never before. The whole world was shaking. Then I heard the angel say," This will happen in a very short time." I said, "Can't you postpone? Don't pour these things out all over the globe." And suddenly I saw the five angels standing around the globe lifting up their hands and their wings towards heaven and saying, "All glory to the Lord of heaven and earth. Now the time has come and He will glorify His Son. The earth shall be burned and destroyed. All things shall pass away. The new Heaven and New Earth shall come. God shall destroy the works of the devil forever. I shall show My power - how I will protect My children in the midst of all this destruction.

Be ready for that day, for the Lord has come.

My room was full of light from the brightness of the angels. Then suddenly they ascended up to heaven. As I looked up I saw the angels go in five directions. I know they already have started their duties. For more than an hour I could not move. I was wide-awake, trembling from time to time. I said, " Lord, shall I leave Patmos now?" He said, "No, I brought you here for a purpose." I said," The message from the angels all over the world is not good news. It is judgment, punishment, destruction, devastation. What will people say about me? I've always been a preacher of love, peace and good news." The angel said," It is our message. You are the instrument, the channel. What a privilege that God has chosen you to give this message to the nations. "I said," Lord, Thy will be done." To God be the glory.

My Language of Love

First Language of Love

Words of Affirmation
You need to hear praise to know you are loved, and you may also prefer to express your affection verbally. Negative comments cut right to the bone. You want to hear that you're loved and how much and why.
I find that another’s criticism really, really hurts.
I tell those whom I love that I love them. That’s sufficient for me.
I feel like I need compliments, so sometimes I “fish” for them.
I feel like “a million bucks” when I get sincere praise.

Second Language of Love

Acts of Service
You prefer to show your love through favors and chores and doing things for others. You feel put-upon and unappreciated when your efforts are taken for granted.
I often feel special, significant, and useful when I help others.
I often feel upset when others don’t help me out, much less offer to do anything.
I show affection by doing things for other people.
I don’t usually ask for help, but when someone does something for me, I feel really cherished.

Chicken on your teeth.

Last night my wife wanted to get Annabelle to bed. She saw Annabelle teeth... and said,"Belle, there's chicken on your teeth".

I was like... what??? Chicken... big chicken .... on my daughter's teeth...

I look at my wife..... smiling.... hahahahahahaha

Your fart so busuk lah.

Went to Tesco one night and bought something for Annabelle. At the payment counter, while paying for the item, suddenly smell a stinking smell.

Asked Annabelle whether she eek eek.

My wife said... "No lah".

I said, "Bau busuk lah... dia berak tak?".

My wife said, "It's me lah"

Wahlau le... so smelly.

Yesterday, had been farting quite frequently.... stomach problem agak nya. But not as smelly as my wife's stinking bomb.

A fart can be quiet,a fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,poisonous cloud.
A fart can be short,Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known to sound just like a song
Some farts do not smell, While others are vile,.

A fart may pass quickly, Or linger awhile
A fart can create A most-curious medley,
A fart can be harmless, Or silent, but deadly.
A fart can occur In a number of places,
And leave everyone With strange looks on their faces.

From wide-open prairies, to small elevators,
A fart will find all of us Sooner or later.
So be not afraid Of the invisible gas,
For always remember,
That farts, too, shall pass.

Emotional Fornication

The way I see it, when we separate into peer groups with men and women together we end up having "emotional fornication." Chew on that for a second. Repeat it out loud. Emotional Fornication. I remember the first time those word were put together in my thoughts. "What?" was my first response. "YucK!" was my second. I didn't really care to define my past male friendships with such a disgusting thought. Consider this carefully and I think you'll agree that emotional fornication is an accurate definition for what foes one between people who share their hearts with someone who is not their spouse.

When a person fornicates before marriage we normally think of it in a sexual contect. I'd like you to think about emotional fornication. Here's a word picture to help you understand where I'm coming from.

Imagine for a moment one of those huge lollipops, the kind that you buy at an amusement park candy store. Take off the wrapper and pass it around to ten people. Allow them to lick as much as they want. The left over is saved for the husband or wife, the rightful owner of the lollipop. Yuck! Who would want that? When we give pieces of ourselves emotionally and spiritually to ten different boy/girl friends what is left over for the rightful owner? Just the leftovers! The rightful owner is first God, then a mate of His choice. Keeping yourself emotionally pure is a gift that should be left wrapped and given to the rightful owner, your spouse.

When the lollipops is passed around for anyone to taste, it is not being kept pure. When we spread our hearts around and share deep emotional feelings with a boy/girl friend, or even a handful or boy/girl friends, we are robbing our future spouses of parts of our emotional selves. In a word -- Fornication. Being pure is the goal of the believer; "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" (Matt. 5:8).

You might be trying to reason this out: "Sharing myself or my thoughts isn't bad, is it?" Or, "It's not hurting anyone, so what's the problem?" The problem is that when intimate ideas, secrets, or dreams are shared with wrong motives or unclear relationship boundaries, the heart feels the effects when those in unclear relationships break up or start dating someone else.

Amazing... so fast got people want to take the eggs.

How high is your marriage standard?

During the ISLT training, Cassie (one of the trainer) was sharing about marriage and quarrel. He shared his testimony.

"I was married for 4 years at that time. We had a wonderful marriage time. Never had a quarrel. We are proud of it. 4 years of wonderful marriage without any quarrel whatsoever.

We went to a marriage counseling seminar. The counselor asked the participants to meet up with various other counselors regarding any quarrels that they have in their marriage. We tried to think of any quarrels that we might have in our marriage but could not come up with anything. None. No quarrels at all. So we ask the counselor about it. The counselor couldn't believe it. I told him that it's true that we have no quarrels during our 4 years of marriage.

After a while, the counselor made this remarks. "There is only one explanation that I can think of..... That you have a very low standard of your marriage". That statement really hit me hard.

A low standard of marriage. That's why there is no quarrels because it is easy to fulfill the standard and both of us are happy with it. But if the standard is high, there's higher expectations from one another, and that's where quarrels will exist when we failed to meet that high standards.

After that marriage seminar, I and my wife have been quarelling most of the time."

Cassie's testimony touched me strait away. I'm also was proud that my marriage has not many quarrels. Now I know that the standards that I put in my marriage is low.

Speech at ISLT Malaysia 2005 Graduation


I was approached by Lyn Mackay to share something on what I feel about ISLT training. Didn't have much time to prepare but this is what I would like to share.


- I came here to ISLT with fear, not knowing what I will have to go through. Not knowing how the training will be like.

- I came here to ISLT with expectation, expecting to learn new things. Expecting new things that can help me in the ministry.

- I came here to ISLT with a heavy heart. I have to leave my wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters for 21 days. However, I praise God that I am able to go back within the 3 weeks but some of you have to endure the 21 days.

- I came here to ISLT with responsibility. Responsibility to learn and be accountable to my ministry, accountable to the church that sends me, and accountable to the sponsors who paid much for me to come here.

- I came here to ISLT with hope. Hope that God will enlarge my vision.


- I found here in ISLT friends. Friends from all over the world. Friends who are serving God in the sports ministry.

- I found here in ISLT courage. Courage that I can go on despite the many obstacles along the way. Many of you have given me courage from the achievements and failures that you have gone through.

- I found here in ISLT co-workers. People who are serving the same God, working together to serve the people of sports. We are all servants of God.

- I found here in ISLT teachers. Teachers who have not just say but they do what they say. Teachers who are humble that they asked to be called by their first name. This is not easy for some of us who have problems not being able to call the teachers by their title. Teachers who gave their hearts and life to God.

- I found here in ISLT Biblical principles. Principles that I can apply in my life and in sports.

- I found here in ISLT inspiration. Hearing the testimonies of some of you gave me inspirations to do better for God. Your stories and testimonies have inspired me.

- There are many other things that I can say here about the training…. But it would take the whole day to finish. I would like to close with these thoughts.


- I am going back from here empowered. Empowered to do the sports ministry in a better way. Empowered not just in knowledge but also in practical aspect of doing ministry.

- I am going back from here with awareness. Awareness that I am not alone in doing God's work but there are many others like me around the world, working for God.

- I am going back from here better prepared. Better prepared to run the race that God has set before me.

- I am going back from here with motivation. Motivation to do my best in serving God.

- I am going back from here with readiness in my heart. Readiness to go and do whatever God wants me to do.

- I am going back from here with confident. Confident not that I can do the work by myself but confident that God wants to use me in the ministry.

- I am going back from here with a humble heart, knowing that it is only through Christ I must do the work. And it is Christ that can grant me success.

- I am going back from here grateful that others especially the teachers have given much to me here in this training.

Friends, we are all leaders, whether we like it or not, whether we are aware of it or not. God has put us here as leaders to serve Him. It is my vision, my hope that in 20 years down the line, I'll be able to see all of you still serving our Lord. In 20 years time, we must be ready to pass the baton to the next generation.

May God bless you all.
