Got it wrong...

The Oscar people made one boo-boo last night: They said Infernal Affairs was a Japanese movie! :/

Of Valentines, CNY and MPPP

Valentine's day... over-rated.
Chinese New Year period... over-crowded.
MPPP or State Government... over-stupid.

How can they think of digging up the roundabout in front of McD's Gurney to replace it with a traffic light junction without thinking that there will be 2 full blown festivals (Thaipusam and CNY) coming up and don't even bother to make sure that they are up and ready quickly?

CNY is coming and I can bet with you the whole island will be jam-packed with cars. This madness is going to be compounded by the fact that the entrance to one of Penang's most famous tourist spots, i.e. Gurney Drive, has been turned into a chaotic construction site (they are nicely spending their time decorating the place up instead of putting up the necessary traffic lights that will make it functional) and the diversionary route put up is so grossly in adequate that things will come to a standstill. This is not helped by the numerous tour-buses that double parked in and around the Gurney Drive area.

Thank you whoever is in charged of this fiasco for making life in Penang really 'nice' for us all! :P

I was reading Genesis this morning and I found out a very interesting fact...

Did you know that God had originally intended mankind and every other living creature, be it on land, water or sky, to feed on plant life for our nourishment?

Hmm... makes me wonder what am I really doing to my body. :/

As for you veggie haters, all I can say is for you to start getting used to eating your brussel sprouts and broccoli like your mum asked you to, cause heaven's buffet line is one big salad bowl. :)

I believe

I know times are tough but I believe in YOU...

What would you do?

What would you do if you find out that YOU are the very burden that's weighing someone else down?
That you are the very person who is stopping him/her from flying high, soaring to where he/she wants to be?
What would you do?

Stay or Go?

Recently, one big question occupying my mind constantly is whether I should stay put or seek new pastures elsewhere. This question's weight is so great that sometimes I am so stressed out by this.

My whole being is willing me to go but somehow God reminded me of Joseph and the way he followed God... I am sure he had questions and fears when he was sold as a slave or when he was thrown into prison but he never doubted God. Instead he stayed focused and faithful, knowing that God has already predestined great things for him. He bid his time and allowed God's plans to work and come to fruition, knowing His timing is perfect.

I wonder if this is the same test that God is giving me right now. All I want to do right now is to get this right and wait upon Him. I have screwed up so many times by being impatient. So now I will try my very best to allow God to lead me to where is wants me to be, be it here or somewhere else.

I am where I am for a reason and I pray that God will give me the peace, strength and courage to see this through. Amen.

Laughter, the Lord and Little Things

Yesterday's Our Daily Bread talked of this old lady (104 years old, I must add) who credited "laughter, the Lord and little things" for her longevity.
You know what? She is right.

Its the joy of God within us, its outward radiance on our faces and its multiplying effect on others.
Its the Lord's hand of grace, guidance and favour on our lives as we make Him our all and...
its our enjoyment and appreciation of the simple, little things in life that will allow us to keep going on and on, day by day, regardless of the circumstances around us.

Let's constantly keep that in our mind, okay? :)
