Judged




No one is sinless.... the pastor asked the one who leave church is the most sinful, why? Because he shuts the heaven door to the needy ones. God commanded us to love and make disciples of all nation, making those who are sinless? Nope, Jesus showed us examples, to those who are sick needs a doctor.

水易君诗 之一

刚刚水易君用了我的姓名作了一首诗,顿时发现我的名字多么抒情画意。。。




送你美言一句:李树开花你先尝,美景如画四季春,兰花幽香又清远,琴美歌甜溢四方。

另外还叮嘱我,‘名如其人,人如其名,你要感谢你爸和妈啊。’

Haggai Institute Regional Seminar in KL 19th - 24th Aug 2011







Haggai Institute was founded in 1969 to equip Asian, African and Latin American Christian leaders — who will train others — to reach their own people for Christ. That’s what we mean by “start from within and begin at the top.” It is international and interdenominational, a worldwide network of Christian Leaders — men and women, ordained and lay — trained by the best non-Western faculty, using non-Western materials and methods. The training program is headquartered in Singapore, a neutral hub of the developing world. These leaders are trained in advanced evangelistic communications and managerial techniques. They are also trained to pass on these techniques in training sessions which they conduct themselves in their homelands.

For more information please visit http://www.haggai-institute.com/.



This coming seminar is a 6 day-seminar, venue: Concorde Inn, KLIA Sepang at the cost of USD120 (RM360) for Clergy; USD 160 (RM480) for marketplace.

Please drop me a comment if you would like to receive a soft copy of this brochure.

Friend forever...?

'I want to be your friend forever!' 
Do you remember this statement?



A smitten?


As we learn to know more about each other...
Things seem alright yet wrong....
Does not cease to remind there are no fairy tales...
there is no forever...there is no true heart...


But why?


I haven't tried... I haven't tasted...
I haven't even touched!




You are green, that's my favourite colour!


You are wasabi, I love spicy yet doesn't burn my tongue!


You are gentle but firm inside, that's the character!






If only we could meet again...

一杯 美禄 饮料 / Making a cup of MILO® drink

“早安,她想要喝你泡的美禄饮料,可以泡一杯给她吗?” 今天早上一位学生的母亲如此拜托我;记得从前也曾经拜托我擦一片牛油面包,因为她的女儿喜欢吃我擦的面包,那个时候请教我用什么面包和牛油。 这一次她也请教我如何泡美禄饮料。 我想虽然是一杯简单的即泡即饮饮料,个人有不同的饮食习惯,那就让我分享我的习惯吧!

如何泡制一杯美禄饮料  / Prepare a cup of MILO® drink:

2 heap spoons of MILO® powder  两汤匙美禄粉堆

Stir well after pouring in half cup of hot water 倒入半杯的热开水后搅拌

Pour in UHT full cream milk 再倒入超高温处理全脂奶



不是什么秘方也没什么特别的地方,完全是生活饮食习惯,本人偶尔也会用炼奶。

A day without 'drug'

Was not able to be connected online yesterday, due to overdue payment, which I had assigned auto payment on the day of application, usually it will have no problem. Well obviously that was recorded in old credit card number, which mean have to spare another half day to get this done as soon as possible.

A day without internet at home is like a day without taking drug, hm.... many things can't be done, harvesting... chatting... blogging... reading...

Without internet, the only thing I will do is to have piano practice, Oh yah~ and nag on Gab.... haha, this is a free-mom will do, check everything on him and nag.

"Life is Short"

Life is Short (Inspired by Jane Lee)

by Chocky Chong on Friday, 20 May 2011 at 11:54




Life is short, let's party!
Life is short, let's play dirty ....
Life is short, let's be happy!
Life is short, be happy irresponsibily ....
Life is short, live now and ^%$# tomorrow
Life is short, ain't got time for sorrow
Life is short, dun need tomorrow's borrowed time
Life is short, every minute is a happy jingle chime
Life is short ....... is that what is means seriously?


Jane's note

Could be something serious, if it is being abused. Seems everyone has resonance over this quote.


Life is Short, live it to the fullest, not measured by the things you've done, and the fun you've had; 


Life is short, to some, another hour is a tormenting  to them; 


to some, they don't have the right to say, to ask...


A person who has lost freedom -
 a request is a luxury to him.

A person who has trapped in unhappiness -
 love and joy is an illusion.

A person who is sick and weak -
 but they are too weak to fight for another chance.



A person who is playful -
 obstacles are stepping stones.  


A person who is irresponsible -
 standards are hurdles.



A person full with passion, optimistic -
 challenging, nothing is impossible.


A person full with passion and love -
 love, joy and peace fill his life. 


A person with vision -
 the word 'perish' is not found in their life.


Life isn't measured by the length of the days;


Life is short, when you still have the choice, the power, the right, the will,  live a life with no apologies, with no regrets. We make mistakes, it's okay, let mistakes be our stepping stones. 













At last, my friend...



Life is short

Do not let our pasts dancing on our pains like salt on a wound






and to some friends...

Life is short

Do not find pleasure on others suffering














We are like a lemon, you can't take it alone, we need sugar, water, tea and ice cubes to make a cup of ice-lemon tea that quench our thirst.















A mistake to be meant for



A mistake is like a cut, a scar even after healed. 











That's the mistake to be meant for after all

'Google search!'

When I want to find resources for my business, go google search.
When I want to find information of a writer, go google search.
When people are chatting things I don't know, go google search.
When I do not know the place well, go google map search
When Gab doesn't know any Malay word, go google translate.

Everything I want to know I google search.



It's convenient, it's fast and updated. I search for people, search for phone numbers, believe it or not, all you need just the name, the email address, you get everything. And now.... is my turn to worry, or shall I? Isn't it good for any business, people will get you whenever they want.

I use different emails to register different account, just to prevent this problem. Ended up all emails find me! For business purpose, I can't delete my info. What more to worry?

1) 300ml of UHT milk

2) 2 tsp of sugar

3) 1 heap tbp of Van Houten chocolate powder


I'd like to use electric milk frother to beat the mixture while heating up.

Bali Maiden Trip Highlights of day 6

Highlights of day 6

Good morning the last day of Bali! As Debbie didn't really find a time to sun tan, this very morning, she made it on rooftop, Shyewoon and Munwah went looking for Mayan's restaurant, the lady Elizabeth mentioned in the movie 'Eat Pray Love'. As for me, sigh~! Suffering from stomach-aching... guess I ate too hard for the past few days, even though I had good digestion... still can't run away from it. 


This very morning, I went only two places, toilet and the room. 


As for lunch, I skipped. Bad .... cos I missed babi guling.









Good bye Bali~

Bali Maiden Trip Highlights of day 5

Highlights of day 5:

1) Sunrise dolphin watching @ Lovina beach aka black sand beach. Woke up at 5:30am, meeting our boatman at the door, sky was still dark, just a short walk to beach side, Munwah and Shyewoon helped boatman to get his boat into water, it was a quiet morning, we saw many boats sailing towards one direction.


Sail about half an hour, dolphins usually swim in groups, as soon as one sees a group of dolphins boatman will sail close to them, we don't quite like or agree this idea and way to watch dolphin, it threatens their living.


Therefore we requested the boatman just stay away and stopped someplace we had our picnic in the ocean.  


2) Back to Lovina have our lovely and relax breakfast, birds chirping, breezing garden.


Debbie and Shyewoon went to the beach to get some nice booty, Munwah and me went for a walk in villas nearby.




And drove to Damai Resort with everybody.





Come back to have our lunch just opposite Taman Lily's



After lunch, drove back to Ubud. The journey took only 3 hours from north to Ubud. Passed through a highland.





Visited one of the luxury hotels in Ubud- Four Seasons Resort. It was fully booked that day, we can't have a drink there, hence the manager just gave us a tour,





Get back to Ubud town for dinner.

Bali Maiden Trip Highlights of day 4

Highlights of day 4:


Had a night stayed in Arjana 3, bungalows built in the midst of padi field, it requires a long way walk from Arjana 2 where we parked our car. Everyone woke up at 8am, had our breakfast, spent some time chatting, took a nice shower, packed luggages, ready to go for massages.


Most of them only start working at 1pm, therefore we went for Babi Guling for lunch first, then took a slow walk on Ubud town again before going back for massage.  MW and Shye Woon went for full body massage (100k Rp) whereas Debbie and I went for pedicure and manicure as well as half body massage for about 130k Rp, good treat! It was done in a very simple partitioned 'room', no aircon, but Debbie and I fell asleep a few times. *whispering: "According to Shyewoon, Munwah also fell asleep, as he snored during body massage."






It was already 4pm after all of us were done. Started journey to Lovina, there were two ways to drive to Lovina, Mun Wah suggested to take a longer way which offers us more views. We agreed with this idea. The total of distance is about 84km, not very far, took us about 6 hours to reach to Lovina. From Ubud - Klungkung - sidemen - Danau Batur - Lovina by taking this drive, we experienced more! 

Went pass by many padi fields, dens, villages, as we drove along the road, many times we stopped and ask for direction, villagers were helpful and kind. 

The speed roughly maintained in about 40km/h, as the road is narrow, there were many trucks drove by as there were a few constructions going on, and also foggy winding mountain road in the night may reduce to just 30km/h.





Arrived Lovina at 10pm. We were the only guests, after taking supper at food stall nearby, went back to villa and we chatted with a guard who was on shift, he helped to arrange the dolphin watching.







Bali Maiden Trip Highlights of day 3

Highlights of day 3


Day 3 In Ubud mainly a food day. Debbie and I stayed in Tunjung Bungalows, Mun Wah and Shyewoon stayed in TEBA House, which has a nice garden, we had our breakfast together at the corridor, clear air, windy, 鸟语花香birds chirping, garden filled with blooming flowers. Allow me to tell you, they serve good breakfast!
1) Breakfast at guest house


As soon as we finished breakfast, took a shower, packed luggages, went to Ubud town, checked up Arjana villa which Mun Wah had pre-booked.


2) Bakso soup
As we got out in town, I saw a mobile Bakso stall, I loved Bakso soup, the first time I tried was in Jakarta, they liked this too!

Walked to check out the place we stay, no kidding..... it was very far end!


 3) Lunch - Babi Guling @ Ibu Ota Restaurant
That was a long walk, after delivered our luggages, we walked to Ibu Ota Restaurant for famous Babi Guling. It is a must eat delicacy if you come to Ubud.





A delicious, fulfillment lunch we had had. 


Next, walk along the street, visiting art galleries, boutiques, restaurants... according to Mun Wah's travelling guide, we went to this restaurant for drinks.




Then went to Ubud market battle field for about 2 hours, no luck, rained in the evening, stuck in the 'wet' market for another half an hour till we decided to run to nearby restaurant for a break, Mun Wah suggested Lotus Cafe, it has beautiful lotus pond, it's a nice place to spend our time. 




It drizzled till 7pm, we decided to make ourselves changed in the cafe since all of us 'won' some booty from Ubud market, fresh in the oven went straight for our dinner; Bengil's Dirty Duck was recommended by friend, it did yummilicious!

Highlights of day 1:
1) Stuck on the road for about half an hour because of Balinese Religion Parade, I managed to get down from car, strolled along the street, took some pics of this interesting parade.
2) Many 'lao wai' surfing, I found myself more in a Hawaii than in Bali.
3) Many people having massage, pedicure, manicure and plaiting hair in the beach. 
4) Many women sitting along the street knitting bracelets, together with a few children playing around them.


All arrangements and calls were made by Mun Wah, he was the only one planned the whole trip, thankful for him, and he also need someone like me to make the whole trip fun, I am a good follower, absolutely a good follower.




Settled first night in Kuta at Segara Sadhu Inn @250k Rp per night w/ air-con and breakfast. I only had a tiny complain on toilet's basin, overall satisfied. 

Highlights of day 2:



1) As soon as we've taken our breakfast at Segara Sadhu, we woke up quite late though, at about 10:30am, loaded our luggages, went for a walk near Kuta beach, packed our lunch, then headed to GWK cultural park.


2) Headed to Uluwatu Temple, as GPS couldn't received signal, failed to direct us to this destination, accidentally we bumped into one bonus destination, The edge resort, having talked to the manageress on phone, she is more than welcome us to visit the hotel, Ade gave us a hospitality hotel tour. She said there are only 5 villas in the hotel, 1bed room villa USD 1k, 2-room villa USD 3k, 3-room villa USD 5k, and 5-room units, the latest cost about USD 7.5k per night, we really felt privileged.



3) Everyone is so reluctant to leave The edge, even though we finished our drinks early...   roughly spent about 1 1/2 hour. Have to pull ourselves out from the celebrity lifestyle villa. Headed to Uluwatu Temple, the initial destination.


4)  5:30pm, time to leave and go for a Candle light BBQ seafood dinner in Jimbaran Beach.


Dinner finished at about 8:30pm, we drove to Ubud, there were some incident, Mun Wah found out that the owner of the guest house only booked one room for him, but he managed to get us another one without air-con just nearby, we didn't really mind as long as we have our place to sleep. It was about 175k Rp per night.


Carrots, Eggs, or Coffee Beans



Carrots, Eggs or Coffee Beans Movie: All of us at one time or another have experienced a difficult situation, had setbacks, or dealt with our share of disappointment. Most things that happen to us on a daily basis we can’t control and I can honestly say (with conviction) that it is not what happens to us that matters but rather, how we choose to respond."




Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that
seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I
wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable
heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have
a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup,
a financial hardship or some other trial, have
I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look
the same, but on the inside am I bitter and
tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually
changes the hot water, the very circumstance
that brings the pain. When the water gets hot,
it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you
are like the bean, when things are at their
worst, you get better and change the situation
around you. When the hour is the darkest and
trials are their greatest do you elevate
yourself to another level? How do you handle
adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee
bean?


The happiest of people don't necessarily have
the best of everything; they just make the
most of everything that comes along their way.
The brightest future will always be based on a
forgotten past; you can't go forward in life
until you let go of your past failures and
heartaches.

Home after a trip

The feeling to being home again after a trip is sweet, especially when you step in with a 'little home-sick-tiresome body, nothing as good as when you see your home is the same as you left. Thankful for God's protection.

And you walking into a clean and tidy home! I have a habit before going for a trip, I will make sure myself do the tidy-ups and cleaning works, such as: clear all unfinished drinking water, cover the toilet bowl, clear laundry if possible.... usually work till midnight.

A friend asked why do I have to do that, my reason is simply avoid from cockroaches and lizards looking for food. Isn't it good when you step in, you check on every thing is in place, no 'poos' around.

The only thing is to do some laundry.
