HaHa! Someone just asked me to listen to this Mandarin song. HaHa! Tak faham lah :D


别心疼我会跌跌撞撞
因为在温柔手中 我已学会翱翔
开始向往那更高的蓝天
放开牵绊的线
才能神采飞扬
一路上 许多相同渴望
生命不该是挣扎 是时光与成长
默契激荡梦想
原来我不孤单
满身伤 是光荣的勋章
我呐喊只想找回 拥抱天空的力量
选择永不投降
是为了洒脱鼓掌
我飞得理直气壮
我唱得比谁都爽
征服逆风的阻挡
用我青春的翅膀
我飞得理直气壮
我比谁都要倔强
颠覆世界眼光
义无反顾地闯
彩色天空是我唯一的方向
单纯是我的信仰
高唱不变的坚强
我飞得理直气壮
我唱得比谁都爽
征服逆风的阻挡
用我青春的翅膀
我飞得理直气壮
我比谁都要倔强
颠覆世界眼光
义无反顾地闯
彩色天空是我唯一的方向

The Voice

Being alone in the country
With neither parents nor siblings
Relatives are staying abroad
She had an operation a few days ago

The Voice told me to visit my friend
She was just being wheeled out
from the operation theatre
When I was guided to her bedside
by a very caring nurse

DO NOT GO BEYOND THE RED LINE
Was painted along the borders
of the huge observatory ward
It was a new environment to me
Actually friends are not allowed in

Wearing a protective robe and footwear
I walked very gingerly over to my friend
I held her hands tightly
I am glad I listened to The Voice

If We Hold On Together Lyrics

Don't lose your way
with each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope and glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by, for you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end

Valley...Mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark we'll feel the light
Warm our hearts...everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

Walk on Water

"When I am going through all my insecurities and uncertainty and lack of confidence, I was losing focus on God. I was focusing on all these other things, like my job and what other people thought of me and what the reporters were writing. Over time, I was able to check myself and kind of get my focus back. And I think God did something supernatural in me, something that I couldn’t do on my own, something that I may never be able to recreate. So I think in that instance I was just learning to fight to constantly live and play for God. And when I do that, I’ll be able to walk on water." ~ Jeremy Lin :)

Onerous request from a foreign land. But we cherish our happiness and freedom. Please understand the predicament.

Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's gradually robs its victims of their identities. While many remain happy and unbothered by their forgetfulness, they inevitably become different people, living largely in whatever part of the past they can remember.

Eventually, they have to be fed and taken to the bathroom - their existence ever constricting as they drift further and further from their former selves.



This is extremely sad. The memories of Mrs Loh are still very vivid in my mind. Throughout our last meeting, we held hands tightly. I tried my best to speak with her without shedding any tears. My heart was shattering inside. She just looked at me without any response. She was a pale shadow of her former vibrant self. After about 15 minutes of one-way conversation, Mrs Loh smiled at me. Her husband said she remembered me during those smiling moments. Her recognition touched my heart deeply and purely. Thank you!

Appreciate

Appreciate what we have and value it. Try counting our positives and be grateful for all the good things and kind people in our life. If we’re concerned about wealth and success, know that these can be whatever we like. Abundance comes in many forms. If we’re healthy, think about how many people are counting their last breath. If we don’t have as much money as we would like, think about the millions of parents in the world that cannot even feed their families. Perhaps redefining what wealth and abundance are may go a long way.

Be grateful and thankful always :)

Scam Alert

From a friend:

This is one of the best scams I’ve heard about.
You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room).
You go to your room and settle in. All is good.
The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 - which happens to be your room.
The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: 'This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card information. Please re-read me your credit card number and verify the last 3 digits numbers at the reverse side of your charge card.'
Not thinking anything wrong, since the call seems to come from the front desk you oblige.
But actually, it is a scam by someone calling from outside the hotel.
They have asked for a random room number, then ask you for your credit card and address information.
They sound so professional, that you think you are talking to the front desk.
If you ever encounter this scenario on your travels, tell the caller that you will be down to the front desk to clear up any problems. Then, go to the front desk or call directly and ask if there was a problem.
If there was none, inform the manager of the hotel that someone tried to scam you of your credit card information, acting like a front desk employee.
This was sent by someone who has been duped........and is still cleaning up the mess.

Language

All actions and behaviours are but a reflection of one's thoughts, ideas, and speech. If we intend to or want to change a behaviour or action, the first thing to do is change our language - that is the words we chose to use, not an entire foreign or cultural spoken language.

Freedom to Speech

Facebook-ing, and other social media, is a form of speech. Just that it is in digital virtual form. Just you and I are transversing across vast distances to communicate, to share ideas, to laugh, to cry - just as we would be in person. It is a means by which we connect. To deny one's of the ability to speak is to infringe upon one's fundamental rights to free speech. If we did as such, how different is our action to that of what has been done upon us occasionally? Question is not whether we allow facebook-ing. The underlying and purer reasoning behind this question is whether we allow the freedom to speech. We must shoulder responsibility for our actions and speech. Speak with kindness and love.

It includes the ability to connect with people; to establish strong relationships with co-workers and peers; and to learn and function as a team.

Oneself

Achieving happiness is a lifelong pursuit that one needs to work at and the answer to each individual's happiness lies within oneself.

Phone calls from Canberra and London yesterday. Hee! Thank you! :)

Yours truly had scheduled the daily noon post until July next year. Just need to post the snippets to share a glimpse into my life whenever there is inspiration. Please stay tuned :)

Lord, I lift Your name on high 
Lord, I love to sing Your praises 
I'm so glad You're in my life 
I'm so glad You came to save us 

You came from heaven to earth 
To show the way 
From the earth to the cross 
My debt to pay 
From the cross to the grave 
From the grave to the sky 
Lord, I lift Your name on high 


* Woke up to this song today. It rings in my mind throughout the morning... :)

"Bus, car or train?"

The Joy of Losing Ourselves

That wonderful sense of losing ourselves in an activity occurs less frequently when we leave childhood.

Yet, as adults, most of us still get to experience it from time to time.

It can happen when drawing or sewing, playing a musical instrument, analysing a chess position, playing a sport or dancing.

It can happen whenever we engage in any challenging activity not merely as a means to an end, but rather as an end in itself.

Trust

Strength is moving forward with faith and maturity; maturity is handling situations with wisdom and grace; grace is wishing our competitor the best and choosing to trust God in all things :)

Cornerstone

How we can be happy and hopeful after knowing everything is the biggest mystery of it all… but when Jesus is the cornerstone of our lives, I guess strength and maturity and grace all comes upon us unknowingly :)
