The Power of God

Last Sunday, my family and mother went out for dinner with Bro Ann & family. Bro Ann wanted to bless us and mom with dinner at the clubhouse. Went there and as usual, the children are moving around the restoraunt while Engso May Lan ordered the dishes.

When the food arrived, the children helped themselves to the food. One of the food is the “tauhu” which was cooked with a certain kind of soysauce. When Engso May Lan tasted the tauhu, she immediately realised that the chef might have used the soysauce that contains one type of beans called fava beans. 3 of the children Jian Shen, Jian En and Florence are confirmed G6PD, having some kind of body deficiency. According to research, one benefit of having G6PD deficiency is that it confers a resistance to malaria. G6PD deficiency is also sometimes referred to as favism since some G6PD deficient individuals are also allergic to fava beans.

Unfortunately, all the three children had taken a sip of the tauhu sauce which contains the fava beans. This is very critical, as within 3 to 8 hours their blood cells will be diluted and can cause bloating, brain damage and in most cases death. Engso May Lan was very panic. As for me, I does not know what the whole G6PD deficiency problems so I was not worried at all. However, as Engso May Lan explained what had happened to her friend’s children who had G6PD, I was beginning to realise the grave situation that the 3 children are facing. I uttered a silent prayer for the 3 children.

We continued to have our dinner, realising that there is much that can be done humanly but to wait and see. Engso May Lan did check with the chef, and it was confirm that the soysauce contains fava beans. After dinner, we went back to Bro Ann’s house.

Upon reaching the house, I called the three children and told them that I want to pray for them. Though there is nothing that we can do humanly, there is still one thing that I can do… asking God to intervene in this matter. Praise God that my brother Ann and Engso May Lan did not object to it. Then I prayed for the children, surrendering them to God, asking God to intervene and protect them, I also bind the work of the enemy, bind the sauce from causing harm to the children’s bodies, taking authority by the promises of God’s word.

Thereafter, we rest for a while and then went to sleep. I surrender everything to God. I’ve done what He prompt me to do, it is all now up to God to do His mighty saving work. The dinner is at about 9.00pm, and by 12.00 midnight we will know what will happen to the children. I’m sure that Bro Ann and Engso May Lan are very worried about the three children but God showed His love and power that night. The children are alright and fine.

Woke up in the morning. Couldn’t really sleep because the room is really warm. Anyway, went down and asked the maid about the children. She told me that all of them are okay. Praise and ALL Glory be to God.

Why is life worth living?

If you were given just 2 minutes to convince a person that this life is worth living for, what would your answer be?

Being a person who seldom thinks… or very lazy to think, I would find difficulty in answering this question. I enjoy living, about 90% of the time. It is there, so why should I think about such question? Maybe the problem with me is that I am not surrounded by people who have problems living their lives. Thus I’m not forced to think of such issues. I have the habit of thinking that if only people live the way I live…. well, to be precise… think the way I think… then the question does not need to arise.

Is life worth living? Of course, it is!…

Why? …umphh… don’t know lah. It is just worth living lah.

Maybe I’ll take some time to ponder on this question. Surely there are reasons to why my life is worth living. For the meantime, I’ll use the new Miss Malaysia / World 2005 winner Emmeline Ng’s answer. 

The 22-year-old Ng's answer was:

“I would tell him to live on for his family because they are always there for you, that you should never give up as life is full of miraculous twists and turns and that it is worth taking risks in life, as the greater the risks, the greater the returns.

Okay… after a little bit of pondering… I’ll change the answer to, “…to live on for those who cares for you because you made their lives beautiful and wonderful. That there is hope in a better future as God has laid down the best plan for your life, as you follow God’s path to an abundant life.”

Of course, if given more than 2 minutes to answer this question, I’ll be babbling and babbling of a lot more things that is worth living for. But then… who would want to listen?

My collection

Read about Johanna’s fascination for serviettes. Wah… she collected more than 600+ serviettes. That made me reflect on my fascination for collecting things. NONE. No fascination at all.

Maybe the only fascination that I have right now is computer softwares and cracks. I think it all started because of one program called SwishMax which was introduced to me by one girl called aish. Since then there is no stopping me from finding softwares/programs and the best part of it… finding the cracks/keygens/serials for the softwares. And with streamyx connection, this fascination was given much boost. It is much easier and faster to download whatever programs that I want. Of course there’s the risks to it. Not so much of anti-piracy enforcement officers but more of the viruses that comes together with the downloaded crack/keygens files. Had to reformat the hard disks twice but still the fascination does not dies off.

Do I feel guilty about using pirated softwares. Well… not yet. I guess it is because I didn’t sell the crack softwares for financial gains. By the way, most of the programs are just to satisfy my curiousity. I found good softwares for database management, wedding, video, web edit etc. Now I must learn how to crack the program itself rather than waiting for other to do it. 

Well… my collection continue growing….
