My happiest Chinese New Year!

This year, i really spent a lot of time with my family members. My mum finally plucked up the courage to meet my bedridden grandma. She wanted so much to do it but afraid her health won't allow her. It was a day to remember, everyone was in tears including my maid, Sally when we saw them reunited.

Then, yesterday, my brothers were at my new room Pinnacle@Duxton. (renting a room now) We were all there to catch the sunset and i was mumbling to my younger brother that although i've moved in for a week, it hasn't rained so i have no chance to see the rainbow. And to my surprise, the moment i said that, my sister in law told me there's a rainbow!

See, life's events always turned out unexpectedly good! Hallelujah! God's creation is wonderful. For me, the sight of rainbow made me feel even more hopeful of my future!

Happy New Year, my friend, whoever you are!

Dear Yong Mei,
Just wish to encourage you on in life, no matter what comes may be. God doesnt gives us trials more than we can take. He understands us more than we of ourselves. Changes are bound to happen in our lives, but seek comfort that he's always with us. I always think that each person has a particular affinity to a religion in one's life. Some happens during adversities, some others through events that touched us. When the time comes for us to know him, it will come at a most natural timing, as he decrees.
Here i would like to dedicate this proverb that never fails to comfort me during my sadness and difficult times. He will not leave us in the lurch, but he will help us, in his time. I thank him for my failures and trials, for these made me a humbler person and able to relate to the downcasts and helpless.
Have faith in him!

Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and
He shall direct thy paths.


One night a man had a dream,
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed
scenes from his life.

For each scene he noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to him and
the other to the LORD.

When the last scene flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He notice many times in his life there was
only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened to be at
the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and
he questioned the LORD about it.

"LORD, you said once I decided to follow You,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only ONE set of footprints.
I don't understand why
when I needed You the most
You would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
When you see only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

This poem holds special significance for me. Like the author, I too, have found that as I look back over my life, I realize just how much my LORD has been there carrying me through troubled times. In fact, the harder, the more difficult my valleys have been, the more the LORD has proven Himself to me. I just can't thank and praise Him enough for all He has seen me through. There were times I was sure I wasn't going to make it, but by His grace and goodness I have, and as I look back now I realize those times of troubles were for my Christian growth. Even if I could change things I wouldn't!

All along I have been a free thinker. Cos i think i am stronger than any God. Only studied buddhist studies in secondary school.

Well, now, i totally believe human effort is limited. God leads you on and gives me strength that is stronger than mine.
