Wonderful elastic bands

I usually spend most shopping in kitchen departments, though I don't cook much, it is such joy to see even a new design of fry pan.

More of "upgrading" info of latest innovative designs and ideas. There are so much to catch-up. I'd love just see, rather than buying home, to me, some of them are just ain't practical.

Just like the grapstic™, I own a couple of them, they were given by my sis in law, brought home from Canada during her sister visit. I loved the sweet colours and design, but I struggle every time I want to use it. Till now... I prefer an ordinary elastic bands than using it.

More effectively and user friendly than it.

Last minute Christmas gifts

The idea just hit me when I look at those laminated fabric and I didn't know what can I sew for all family members in such a short time.

Thank God for the inspiration. I made 15 of them in two days included a day I sewed until midnight 3am.

This could be the greatest idea of all to make a Christmas gift last minute.

Mean Scratched!


Gab and I were going to Sunway  Pyramid for a dinner, it was raining and traffic was slow, it took half and hour to finally reached Pyramid.
We saw traffic was bad in all area, included the parking area, cars turning round and round looking for a parking lot. I saw a car reversing right after I drove by it, then I hurry put on signal light showing the car behind that I am taking this lot. How rude was the driver despite my signal and was on my reversing gear, he drove in right away.
I was very angry with his behavior, yet I continued to driving forward.
Not long later we gotten a free space. Gab was very angry and felt unfair and said: "If I were you, I will go down to fight with him, or at least scold him."
"I don't have to do it, I don't need to get myself into trouble, I will go to his car later, and scratch his car for a revenge." I said it like I mean it.
"Ah? You will do it, mum?"
"Ya, in this way nobody sees me, nobody knows it."
"Let's go!" I continued to say.
Gab looked nervous, and a bit worried about my plan.
As we walked pass by the car, I laughed and he reminded me: "Eh ma, do it!"
"Haha, I was just kidding!"
He looked at me and whispered to my ear: "I scratched his car!"
"Huh? How?"
"I used my fingernail..."
"what?" I Broke into laughter.
This is my Gab! Who has a crazy mum, and does crazy thing...with minima harm. Lol

Cool Free stuff...Yuhoo~

It's wonderful, when I previously bought a CPU for RM300 from Leonard and he gave another bag of free stuff included CD player, mouse and a set of Sonic Gear speaker. Honestly I had a bad thought when I looked at those stuff, I thought:"Mmm... I'm not gonna need these, should I bring home or should I reject those, should I? should I not?" This thought running through my mind while he was testing and showing me the CPU. You know... I am a 'warm' person, don't quite understand this 'cool stuff'.

I brought back those stuff reluctantly, stored in the storeroom. The day before yesterday, Gab took this out and was trying to connect it with his iPod via AUX cable, "It Works!! Aaah, so nice and so good of him, I was amazed by his work, I know it is a very simple thing by just poking in and plucking out, at least he did it! I thanked God for giving me a boy!

Ha! I don't need a mini speaker anymore, which I bought two months ago, and returned to my brother the next day due to some defections, am still waiting for him to restock though, since this works so much better than the mini speaker, I'm gonna to change my buying to another stuff, praise the Lord.

Driver that drives me crazy!

I have been troubled by snail pace old CPU, this is blessed by my ex-brother-in-law, it is already the 2nd unit he gave to me, many thanks to him.
But as time goes by, this one has becoming terribly slow, it took up a lot of time for just one command, I am getting very frustrated about it, and the printer can't seem to have it work done too. I prayed for a replacement.
I saw a friend posted in Selangor Garage Sales Corner in facebook group last week, selling used CPU for RM 300, picture showed the mother board and it looks cool to me, (I know it sounds funny, but I really don't know much about PC thingy, all at my first impression was: 'Nice!', though later I found out from PC shop worker this is an 'antique' jor! XD it is still worth the price. ) I am sure is a privilege as an admin of the group, quickly commit to get this unit.
This purchase came with many free stuff, so good of him, Len, also my ex-primary school friend. Gab and I happily got home, he helped me to fix old hard discs, DVD player in it, which he did a good job, Gab even sacrifice our dinner outing, willingly stayed home to finish this job. Somehow, there was a problem with the start-up button, he had given many attempts to try to fix this, eventually doze off before I got home that very night. Hence we sent to Bao's shop to fix it the next day. Bought a new casing to have this problem solved, the worker also helped installing software that we both needed.
Gab and I very excited about our 'new' CPU, so quiet so fast.
However, Hp printer is still the same old problem, I can do scanning, I can't print documents, driver is missing, I need to update Windows to get driver from the update, then... the only problem I have is: I can't update my Windows.

These few nights, I tried to search for FREE downloads HP printer driver, I even download different series that I could get online, non of them works, most of them pup-up a window saying I have to get my Windows update in order to also 'update' printer driver.

I was so crazy and frustrated over this driver issue. I almost wanted to curse HP and Windows, what a conspiracy they have had. I hate them!!

I am so thankful of those friend put in effort to help and suggested ways to solve this issue.
This friend Len really a genius, not only he offered to bear 1/2 the price on the new casing (which I rejected the offer), he also helped me to get HP driver, I really don't know how he managed to get them, it was just awesome. The procedure is not that short description, he did try many ways, and sent files to me a few times, until they work.

As I am not a PC lady, I did spend quite sometimes to figure out how to 'run' those files,  I have to give a little praise to myself, pat pat, I have done a good job too! Wonderful!

Now, I can print my scores, recipes, tutorials, Kingdom Kidz Lesson Plans.... and all that I need. Thankful for everyone, thankful for God that He places so many angels in my life. Praise You Lord!

Fly to Singapore

Just gotten checked in at gate Y1,  the gate has just opened, one hour before the flight 12.40pm.
It was quite a long queue, after given checked the boarding pass, walk through the gate, just a few steps I reached immigration counter, another few steps custom check, there is only one counter opened for the first 15 minutes for such crowd, I will make no complain if the air-condition is cold enough.
I was told to be at least 3 hours earlier, yup I did! Reached at 9.40am, spent some times to finally get a parking lot at the newly open parking space on the left side of LCCT ENTRY.
Had my breakfast in Old Town, Nasi Lemak for RM17 served with a SUPER DRY fried chicken, I guess it is better than oily though :p
For some reasons... if you know me, super "sotong" - blur queen, I was told to proceed to international gate, I went through all 'check-in' procedure, found a seat to settle down, waiting for boarding call. Soon enough I found no my jacket, Argh, I must have left it in the  enquiry counter.
I walked in quick pace, headed to the counter which is quite a distance, thankfully the jacket is still there.
As I get back to the international departure gate, the officer now requests me to have my boarding pass stamped at the "boarding pass checking" counter.
off I went, the officer said: "You have to go to Gate Y1 next to "gate - domestic departure".
Both international and domestic location at distinct ends. And I thought along the long walk, it is such a blessing in disguise, I can't imagine if I wait for boarding call in the wrong boarding gate!!
Ok, that is me, anything could happen.
Well, reached at the gate Y1, long queue...

How does Sewing Octopus price the product

Is it a sensitive article? I would like to tell my experience.

When I look at the price that I put for my product, for example the recent laminated cotton trendy bag, RM 235 (or RM 230, I can't remember lah), I saw the first reaction of those who don't know much.... -.-  do I have to explain?
Am I earning a good money from it?

Yes, I want to explain (again). No, Sadly not.

<p>Laminated cotton Apples 2-way trendy bag</p>
<p>H 14.5" X W 22.5" X D 7.5"<br>
22" Genuine slim Cow Leather handle<br>
100% US cotton for lining stiffened by high quality thick and soft interface<br>
One detachable H8" X W7" zipper pouch<br>
Bronze hardware<br>
2 bronze lobster swivel hooks<br>
YKK Jeans drop-ball metal zipper<br>
Ticket / card pocket <br>
One adjustable (cotton cord)&nbsp; drawstring with stopper for drinking bottle or others</p>
<p><b>RM</b><b> 230</b><br>
</p>
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> <a href="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-DZJlzeJ22Mw/Upk8gYgw7DI/AAAAAAAAPpc/HpPzK480vC8/s1600/20131129_155828_mh1385712558099.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"> <img border="0" src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-DZJlzeJ22Mw/Upk8gYgw7DI/AAAAAAAAPpc/HpPzK480vC8/s640/20131129_155828_mh1385712558099.jpg"> </a> </div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> <a href="http://lh5.ggpht.com/-7WNLZmtbyZ4/Upk8kJ9TQ7I/AAAAAAAAPpk/Gbo_vUCeb-o/s1600/20131129_155748_mh1385712478149.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"> <img border="0" src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/-7WNLZmtbyZ4/Upk8kJ9TQ7I/AAAAAAAAPpk/Gbo_vUCeb-o/s640/20131129_155748_mh1385712478149.jpg"> </a> </div>

This is a big bag, let me list down one by one:
1) 1 meter of thick interfacing - I used high quality cotton interfacing, there are tons of those cheap quality in market. RM 18
2) 1 meter US 100% cotton for lining, RM 32
3) 1 meter of US quality laminated cotton, RM58
4) 2 meter though it only needed 44" for genuine cow leather handle, guess what? RM 60, do you believe it? Can't imagine it is that pricy right?
5) 2 lobster hooks, there are many from china and Taiwan, I used once and it just crashed when I accidentally dropped on the floor. So, I decided to use good quality hardwares. RM 7
6) Leather label RM 2
7) YKK metal zipper RM 3.80
8) bronze snap 2 pieces RM 1
9) Bronze buttons RM 3
10) cotton cord RM 1
11) drawstring stopper RM 1

It's easy to just say "Expensive", do you think is easy to sew a bag? Takes an hour? Two? Or three? You bet! It takes more than that.

If the price for a dressmaker let's assume is RM 80, we deserve more indeed, sadly sometimes is lesser than this price. Moreover.... There are people asking for discount. :(

I think for an artist like me, I don't know much on business making, it makes me feel discouraged.

Bit, I will still keep on, because I love seeing people using and appreciating my creations.

Below is the new clasp I bought yesterday. Take a look at the price, how much should I price my product if it is done? Mini for lesser price? Or RM 20? Sigh. I pray that God's favour is upon me, and upon all my sewing products.

Traditional Can Opener

This is the outlook of a traditional can opener in Malaysia, got it at RM3.80. I do have another bulky type of can opener, I need one of this traditional can opener for an ultimate purpose which many still do not know what it is for. 

There is a friend asking me what is the use of the sharp head in this can opener, mmm..... I was rather amazed that there are people living in Malaysia do not know this ultimate function.

I love Teh-C, tea + sugar + evaporated milk = Teh-C 

There is a special way to open an evaporated milk can, to open it, you need this traditional can opener, may be I am rather particular, haha somehow I prefer this way.


 Place the sharp head on the surface of the can, make sure the 'hook' is hooked up to the can rim, act as a supporting point.
Once is hooked, lift the handle while presure the sharp point.

 Tadah~

 For smooth pouring, you need another open point right opposite of the opening.
Do another time 

I love drinking barley with evaporated milk, this we called Barley with milk

Yum Yum ~ <3 p="">

Carbonara




Carbonara has always been our favourite, here is the recipe I followed.  
Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis



Bacon Carbonara 

6 servings




Ingredients

4 slices bacon, chopped
4 slices pancetta, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups whipping cream
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
6 large egg yolks
18 ounces fresh fettuccine
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives




Directions

Saute the bacon and pancetta in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat until almost crisp, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the bacon and pancetta and saute until the bacon is crisp and golden, about 2 minutes longer. Cool. Whisk in the cream, cheese, and yolks to blend.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the fettuccine and cook until it is just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Drain. Add the fettuccine to the cream mixture and toss over medium-low heat until the sauce coats the pasta thickly, about 5 minutes (do not boil). Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the pasta to a large wide serving bowl. Sprinkle with chives and serve.

Last note to my 'buddy'

How should I put it here....
It is a sad moment, where my 'buddies' aren't buddies at all.

After a buddy put his note clear in our buddy group, I admire his deep thought, as a man, a business man, I will not expect him to think like women, and sentiment as one. That's hurt me the most, I can't take the 'harshness'...yeah  I can't.
I try to think like a man most of the time, this is an invisible shield if you could see with your spiritual eyes.


Below is my last note in the group to this male 'buddy':

Admire your deep thought, your analysis helps me to see indeed I have an unmet expectation while I was practising 'no expectation' ....I admit that I did have this 'unmet expectation', but I try to be a friend in your definition (which I also agreed we should have this practice in every relationship) therefore I learnt to have no complaints over you.
I regretted for what I have said  to cause you hurt so much. Sorry.
I think even I do thousand of things they can't meant the scar.

I thought we understand what a buddy for, I was wrong.
I don't usually call or make a friend 'my best friend or buddy', I remembered you asked me once 'who is my best friend? In a pub, I hesitated, I didn't give you a name, you mentioned Shu Fang, I nodded. I lied, I don't know who is my best friend, I have old friends, they are not my best friends, they don't know my secrets, we gather, we enjoy the time together, but we don't talk secret. I don't know their dark side, I don't know what's their habit, what's their character flaws, even do I know one, I don't have to put in effort to accept them. Because they come and go.
(this is your definition of a friendship)

not until I try to learn to accept and I start putting in effort to practise the spirit of being a buddy, I hear all these.
'unmet ecpectation', I am hurt too, you guys are special in my heart,  ..... Don't we have this too? That is why we are not happy with certain thing of this friend and certain thing of that friend.
In this trip I heard both of your complaints. Please be fair to every one.

Unmet expectation is in everyone of us.

I am leaving this group because I don't see the spirit of buddy, don't sully the sacred term 'buddy'. I define it with love.

If you guys mean happy you come and not enjoy you go. well I can do it well too! I have been always practising it. Friends come and friends go.

Buddy

Closed friends.

If I am trying just to become myself, and I wish my friends accept for who I am, and if I put this standard to my friends that they should accept me, shall I also requires such standard to myself?

Before anything happens, friends draw each other nearer, they are happy, they do everything together, talk anything, share any point of view.

Sometimes disagrees happened. As long as each of us make adjustment to accept each other.

Then you will find someone does not know how to play to be part of it. He or she left the group.

When times passed, more conflicts appear, I can foreseen, even though siblings brought up in the same environment they still fight, because we are independent and individuality.

Some sort of balancing skill requires, nothing comes easy, though we are as Buddy, we don't have commitment to each other yet we carry an invisible bounding and responsibility to each other.

Who can deny it?

If it is just all about oneself makes no difference with others, why the hack keep the 'sacred' term - Buddy.

Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai Green Bus service

If you plan your own itinerary for Chiangrai and Chiangmai trip, you may find this info useful.

Here is some latest info of green bus service fare and time: Chiang mai to Chiang rai or vice versal

We missed one and have to wait 3 hours for next schedule.

以为。最坏!

若不是亲自经历过又怎能真正了解自己的能力呢。

每每以为自己练得一身金刚,刀枪不入,其实还不是女人一个,谈什么潇洒的。

以为自己智慧高超,刚愎自用,真要不得。

每一次都是因为自己的高傲,伤了人的心也毁了自己的的名誉。

以为自己的表达能力可以帮助自己理清思路,怎么知道讲多错多。

懊恼了,懊恼了!

Crafty mood

It's a lovely morning, came home from fetching Gab to school, finished sewing all infant bibs, changed bed linens, sofa cover... came across to two long-emptied photo frames sitting on the drawer chest for more than two years, no kidding, it has been there for more than two years... Finally the crafty inspiration hits me. quickly take down the two instant pics that were taken a month ago, get the pile of fabric scraps, mix and match get the best result of it, dog out some little sparkles that sis bought from Taiwan trip, here it is! Little bit here and little bit there make a masterpiece. Done for the bigger photo frame. Lovely.

放弃

原来坚持是一种负担,起码在这个光景不可以忽略妥当的计划,万不能任意行事。人的心情里有好几个不同的成份,成份的份量因人而异,我知道开心,每个人会想尽办法得着,私欲,人人不停地四处奔跑寻求满足。我是一个普通人,我也想要这些。。。可是我。。。在忧虑里的份量比较多,即使可以坚持,心情肯定无从调适的来,无法完全享受所谓开心的日子。

当放弃几乎让你颓丧,经过好几轮的情感,思想与伦理的格斗后,因为看清了方向,安定了心情,原来是一种解脱。啊,我要走的得更远,我要活得更自在,我要自由,我要喜乐,我更要平安!好吧!一言为定,决定了放弃。

解脱吧!

Wholesome Prayer

I used to make proclamation and rebuke prayers, there is a wholesome prayer I have gotten it from Cindy, my cousin sister. I am living it and will proclaim this every day and night. Let's do it together so that no evil plan shall prospers.

Father, in the Name of Jesus, bless me even while I'm reading this prayer and bless the one that sent this to me in a special way. Open doors in our lives today, Save and set us free!
Give us a double portion of your Spirit as we take back everything that the devil has stolen:
****Emotional Health
****Physical Health
****Finances
****Relationships
**** Jobs
****Homes
****Marriages
I cancel every plot, plan and scheme the enemy has devised against us in the NAME OF JESUS.
And I declare:
NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US WILL PROSPER.
I speak LIFE into every dead situation. And, I thank You that nothing is over until YOU say it's over! Speak prophetically into our lives and to our situations:
****our households are blessed;
**** our health is blessed;
**** our finances are blessed;
**** our relationships are blessed;
**** our businesses are blessed;
**** our jobs are secured
**** our parents are blessed;
**** our siblings are blessed;
**** our ministries are blessed;
**** our decisions are blessed;
**** our friends are blessed.
**** Mortgages are paid and debts cancelled; our hearts' desires are on the way;
According to YOUR perfect will and plan for our lives.
YOU SAID YOU'D NEVER FORSAKE US! IN JESUS' NAME!
AMEN!

Character Adjustment

Teaching is not an easy work, I shouldn't say it a work but a ministry instead.

it requires love, skill, knowledge and wisdom not only teaching and pass down what you know, also tuning some of children characters as well as attitude.

If they are Christian, best to use Bible quote because God's word is most powerful weapon. If they are not, then I will share some of Christian value.

Adjustment is needed when one is reluctant to play and practise. Trying my best to study their character, impart common sense, life value... if needed. Usually when they find it hard to continue.

when they face pressure or problems, I will have to comfort them, encourage them.

It is very challenging. I see them grow, and change. May God's wisdom be with me always.

烟霾。我挡荡荡

今天终于看见蓝蓝的天,大大口的吸进久违了的新鲜空气。昨天开始病倒,我想如果今天烟霾还不散我可真遭殃了,眼睛痛,鼻涕流不停,喉咙干枯疼痛,最难忍受的还真是非头痛莫属,痛了好几天了。

每一年马来西亚都会有烟霾这个天灾,今年实在严重多,还停学了两天。可能在西方国家不曾有的景象就是像本国人般一盒一盒地购买口罩。盼我们的邻国真正看待这个长期影响我们健康的问题。

本来以为烟霾的事还会持续上两三个月,前两天开始缝制手作口罩,看见我的可爱的Lucas,爸爸用了大人的口罩为他戴上,松松的。。。怎么能保护到他呢?所以想了一想,赶快动手缝制小孩尺寸的口罩。

本来的设计是没有插入-开口,因Miki分享了一张‘口罩的介绍’后定意改换之前的设计,弄了一个开口。所以这个手作布口罩的设计,有一个开口,可以插入一种可杀菌保湿的滤纸,日本产品。


缝制了好几个,先给了侄儿女们,Gabriel不要妈妈作的,只要用买的,没他办法。

大人的的手作口罩在鼻梁的部位还可供铁线穿入以致按个人的鼻梁高度调整呢!在Sewing Octopus开始接受订做,有意订做的朋友可以留下短言吧!或查看更多手作布口罩相簿

我自己带上亲自缝制的口罩,没事都想着要上街,浩浩荡荡地,一心只想炫耀^_^"(生病弄坏了脑筋!)

胜过这世界 弦乐谱

就此,本人开始把弹奏(配乐)过的敬拜诗歌,一一把乐曲谱写出来。并不是什么专业谱曲,只是本人靠着现有的能力,与得胜弟兄的扶助编写出来。若教会有几位弦乐乐手就可以组成一团了。咋们也第一次,愿上帝大大赐福于我们,增添我们的能力,让更多人蒙福。
Here is the string section of 'Lebih Dari Pemenang', is my first time to score out a praise and worship string praise sheet, not a very complicated one, nor a brilliant arrangement, just start with what I have, and what I know with the help of Samuel. 
If you have a few violinists in a church, group them together to start string praise ministry. May God grant us more and more, enlarge our territory.

DEng~ failed . it's OK!

Blessed Day! Though it is a hazy hot day, nothing changed my heart of worship.

Today is SCF Youth Sunday, we have a practice in SCF, which we will have Youth Sunday every two months, KK Sunday in every 3 months, this allow all members of the church from young to old worship together as a family.

When in KK Sunday, KK (Kingdom KIdz Ministry) will have to arrange everything from praise and worship including children leading; Sermon speaker; programs if there are some like dancing, Bible memory works, singing, or skit.

Children in KK will have to take charge of the flow. Ushering; Cleaning; Sound checks; Musicians; Psalmists; Projector; Slide Show and so on... This has allowed them to serve from young age.

Youth Sunday, KRG (Kingdom Rock Generation) will plan everything. Today was also the first time I gathered all violinists to form a Strings Ministry.... sounds great, isn't it? There were only 4 of us, haha.

We had a rehearsal yesterday, it was actually quite messy, Sophia is from JB FGC, she had experienced playing in their praise and worship, and we roughly know how it will go. After that mess, we will all have to gather in one room to discuss of the flow, the intro, the parts for who will play high notes and low notes. It was quite tiring though, but getting booster now!

Thankful that Samuel came in to help us, he is a great musician, he has a pair of good ears, he listened and suggested some good ideas. He knew praise and worship songs well, he knew how could give the song a richer harmony. With his help, ease everything SO SO Much loh!

Though there some problem with microphone this morning during the first two songs, sounds didn't project out, that was due to we 'rearrange our standing position and moved the mic where we wanted. Really were our fault....someone do not know much about mic....... DEng~ failed.

Paul came to me after church, gave me a short lesson on the mic we will use in future, at least now we know what we need to do in future in order to avoid or to repeat our mistake again. It's OK!

Well, all things do work for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose, praise the Lord!

During lunch time, I heard feedback from a few brothers and sisters, they were so excited to see our praise and worship now include strings, it gives the feeling of having a 'classy' team, man!! Thanks so much, haha.

One said it really gave a kind of 'feeling' during communion time. Awww.... so encouraging!

Next! What I have to do is to write those violin parts that we played, put music down in notes, upload it for all who needs to play in their Strings Ministry could download for free. We only have violin parts for now, am proclaiming more will join in! We at least are now READY!

Heart that Sews


At this moment, I am concentrating sewing, like what I did for all my hobby learnings, go for full force! Sewing Octopus the brand name will carry all the product that I sew. 

Sewing small items allow the turnover rolls faster, where I could at the same time upgrade those materials like thread rolls, this one in the picture is quilting thread, many times more expensive than ordinary sewing thread. Let say a sewing thread is selling at 70sen, this one is RM18.

I am an artist, suffering from this sickness of giving the best to make every art piece perfect. (Very personal... I know)

Lovely Sibling that warmed my heart.


I met Jane Cheong the first time I went for Supplies Surprise Bazaar at Bfree, which later I found out they have it once in two months time.

I bought quite many things from her, as she is selling at very reasonable price. It is very warm of her, she explained clearly, and also share ideas generously, I love talking with her.

We came out for lunch twice in Kota Kemuning, went visiting her big country style home (I love her house, you know it!)

She brought me to Petaling Street to source some nice fabric shops to get some good deal sewing materials yesterday. In this trip, her two teenage child followed.

I want to talk more of this pair of sibling, elder brother and sister at two years age gap. We chatted many things, including of their Xin Hua secondary school which I also plan to send Gab to.

Along the journey, they followed without grumbling, even though there was once they asked permission to go book store but rejected. They made no naughty face. One thing I noticed and this warmed my heart so much, in the journey when one was walking fast with their mother, the other followed slowly after me, my left leg was hurt and so I have difficulty to walk really fast even though I have tried hard especially when we rushed back to our car to extend our parking ticket for longer shopping time, one will still walked behind me according to my pace. How lovely they are.

I messaged Jane Cheong about this, and she told me she didn't even notice it. I would like to give them an encouragement, I know they didn't pre-plan it, because according to their mother they fight most of the time.

Jane Cheong shared this prayer with me today in facebook. I read this before, and I decided to keep this in my blog.

General Douglas MacArthur's Prayer for his son ~with Jane Lee
"Build me a son, O Lord,
who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid;
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.
Build me a son
 whose wishes will not take the place of deeds;
 a son who will know Thee…… and that
 to know himself is the foundation stone of knowledge.
Lead him, I pray,
not in the path of ease and comfort,
but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge.
Here, let him learn to stand up in the storm;
here let him learn compassion for those that fail.
Build me a son
 whose heart will be clear,
 whose goal will be high,
 a son who will master himself
 before he seeks to master other men;
 one who will reach into the future,
 yet never forget the past.
And after all these things are his,
 add, I pray, enough of a sense of humor,
 so that he may always be serious,
 yet never take himself too seriously.
Give him humility,
 so that he may always remember
 the simplicity of true greatness,
 the open mind of true wisdom
 and the meekness of true strength.
Then, I, his father will dare to
 whisper, "I have not lived in vain.'"

Rekindle first love for God


Just came back from camp, SCF family camp was held at Bentong Eco Dusun 'Resort', this resort is in 'Army' style kind of resort. 

I love this place though, nothing is better than when you are surrounding by trees and trees and trees. 

No coverage or I should say weak phone reception, no wifi, no air-con even in hall, it's a heaven to busy people (I suppose). Afternoons were super hot, these were the time they went for 'obstacle race', 'Bamboo Raft Building' and 'Jungle Walk' activities. 

There were rain in both of the afternoons, started at about 4pm, it was the end time of all activities, so thankful for the rains, it gave us a very cooling nights.

A very different camp to me as compared  to those camps I have attended, the first difference was due to the hurt of left knee ligaments in late February, it is still not fully recovered, hence I was not able to join all outdoor activities (kinda boring...). All I did was staying indoor, taking photos, praise and worship, and listening to sermons.

5 sermons in total, these messages have just given me a booster to rekindle my first love to God. Apart from this wonderful messages, God did a wonderful work in me. 

On the first night, a few of brothers and sisters were given chance after a worship session to shared our experience with God during the worship time. Some have seen vision, some have heard God spoken to them. And some felt God's presence. 

I stepped out to share my experience with God. During my low time, I stopped praying, I stopped reading Bible, I stopped talking to God, I knew He is love, I knew He will not forsake me, I knew He has a plan for me, I knew that He has his perfect time to raise me up again (I know I am being selfish by pushing all responsibility to God.) I then learned to know when one is so low, they are also very weak despite of knowing God's greatness and faithfulness, they don't even have the strength to even call for God's help. This experience has helped me to right my wrong mind set, I thought it is merely just the matter of one's decision, I thought it is merely just a simple action of 'fall and stand up again to keep going' thing; I was so wrong, God put me in this situation to allow myself to 'see', not as what I thought. 

During low time, keep serving Him is the only connection I had had with God. And I know it is something I can not and should not 'cut away', and so I keep serving. And I praise Him, He has been with me to walk through this low time, He has been teaching patiently about His grace, love and faithfulness. 

I also confessed in the congregation about the sin of being prideful. This has been my lesson to improve to becoming a person with a humble heart. I confessed that I may be seen outwardly a humble lady, but inside me I am prideful, please don't misunderstood me a person of hypocrite, I am not, I am just in the progress of changing and moulding. 

And then there was something very very special on the second night, after night service, some went back to dorm, some chose to spend some time with one another, Elaine and I didn't want to go to bed, we had a chat in the hall, where praise and worship team was practising pieces for tomorrow service. 

While I was talking, I had a burp, extra ordinary burp, I felt very painful in my chest, and it passed to armpit, and went to my right hand. The breath of the burp smelled badly, Elaine told me it wasn't normal, and so she prayed for me.

More burps after the prayer, and I had a feeling of 'vomiting', Elaine hurried to get me a plastic bag, I grabbed some tissues sat down immediately. the pain of the chest still there, I kept burping, and I felt there were more and more saliva gather in my mouth, and it was very thick and 'creamy' or I should say slime. 

I had to spit them out, and it was very slimy, I find it hard just to spit and cut the slime, instead, I had to use tissue to 'pinch' in order to break it. This actions repeated a few times, until the 'slimy saliva' stopped forming. I had some dry coughs, and burps at the same time. 

This delivery took place out of my expectation. And I felt God's power, and experience this, nothing unholy can stand in the presence of a holy God. 

A big Amen to this awesome work of God. 

God's love can reach any person in any sin, and it stretches from eternity past to eternity future. It takes us into the very presence of God and sits us on His throne. John Mac Arthur, The New Testament Commentary

 And now, I am not knowing 'God is love' in theory, but personally experience God's love in length, width, height and depth.

101% Trust

Are we trusting our leader? Where does your faith build upon? upon newspaper? upon the words of others? or upon the unselfish life of him LKS? They have enough stress to face, they have enough work to deal with, and they are still fighting for us, please don't burden them with your 'little faith' and silly behavior.

He has been fighting for us half a decade, he has given up everything to us, do we need to 'teach' him what to do? He deserves our 101% trust. 

I feel so sad about the experience that LKS has to bear. Won't you learn that we don't trust media?


Read LKS blog below:

What is Form 14? 什么是表格14?


A parent called me in the after to ask what is this form 14 about? Here is a short extracted from 监票员课程 PACA E-Training
- Form 14
While there is no recount, or the recount has been completed, KTM will prepare several copies of Form 14 as the official results of the voting channel. Double check all the figures filled in Form 14, and make sure the KTM and CA shall sign on all copies of Form 14. Be cautious, CA shall never leave the voting channel without the proper Form 14 that signed by KTM.
- Regulation 25.5 (Election Guideline)
Counting agent better bring along with this particular session of regulation. It helps CA to challenge the KTM to eliminate the suspicious ballots, while the result of SPR 757 is more than Form 13.
- Summary of Section 3 and 4 of the Election Law
This may be helpful to every PACABA on duty. They shall be firmed with those mistake stated are the offences under the Section 3 and 4 of the Election Law.
- 表格14
如果没有重新计票,或从新计票已经完毕,KTM就会将数据带过表格14并准备几份相同的拷贝给各造计票员,这就是官方正式的计票结果。计票员记得向KTM核对所有的数据以确定相同并确定KTM已经在表格14签上名字。注意!在没有拿到完整的表格14以前,计票员绝对不能够离开投票室。毕竟那是一份官方的正式结果,没有它就等于口说无凭。
- 条规25.5 (选举指导守则)
- 计票员最好携带这份文件前往执行任务。这是为了挑战一些“无知”的KTM,以便在SPR 757的计算结果大过于表格13的情况下要求KTM执行此项条规内所制定的两项程序来找出那些“多出来”并销毁它。
- 选举法令第三第四项的简阅
这是为了让PACABA在执行任务时更加自信。他们应该站稳立场,毕竟选举法令中的第三及第四项目里的条文说明了这一切。
