Very warm welcome to this uplifting blog,

Today, I decided to share with you some of the underlying stories behind my signature, with the intention to furnish an effective practical solution to my life. This struck my mind last night while I was waiting for my former superior, Madam Janet, and her husband, I thought of putting my signature on the back of my name card before I handed to them, as a memorable souvenir for them. See the photo below and share with us what you could see from it before I disclose its real story, and how it was created in the first place.

Please do not scroll down to read its real story, but let your imagination run a while. It is fun and you may have some pleasure from it. So, I appeal to you to share what you see from this signature. Thank you in advance.

Perhaps some of you may use it to assist yourself to solve some of your issues which you do not wish to tell anyone, like me in the past. This secret was kept in my heart for a few decades. Now, I chose to do otherwise for several reasons as mentioned follows:

1. It may serve an idea/inspiration to my new designer, introduced by one of my "Sifus" whom I have introduced to you in my preceding article, for my call card.  The designer may think of a better way to reflect my identity and, character, with the intention that others may use it as a powerful tool to heal their hurts, I did. Some of you may be aware that I reached maturity too early and was very independent at a very young age. I missed most of my childhood life because I started to work on a part-time basis even when I was at my primary school and many times I was hurt in many ways, in my studies, work, health and my social life was near to nothing. However, I was blessed with other talents such as Arts, Chess and Mathematics, that is the reason that made me to be an Artist at one time. I used to cover up my actual feelings occasionally, especially when I nearly could not bear it any longer. In order to escape from these hurts, one thing I did, after my discovery, was to draw a picture to put myself in a situation totally opposite to the real situation I was in. This made me feel really good. As a result, this signature was born to reflect my "DREAMED BEAUTIFUL GARDEN" where I heard birds singing surrounded by beautiful full grown flowers and strong smell of their aroma. (from the beautiful Chinese poem I picked from.) It was so sweet and wonderful that I really felt on top of the world. I live in my own imagined world, which unknowingly build into my habits from a very young age. This imagination power keeps me at peak and I was good at using my visualization to fan my desire and gain extra energy to work toward my goal to overwhelm all my hurts. At times, I just refused to come out from it and ignored the events that happened around me. You may say that I was in a denial stage, which I will never say you are wrong. What I care more is that its impacts is so good and I never hurt anyone for doing so.

2. It may help people to overcome their unbearable hurts and as a useful alternative, especially in time of economic crisis like NOW. This solution may serve as a means to lift you up as its name suggests.

3. I hope others may share their ways on how they overcome their hurts. As I always believe that we can make each other stronger and better through sharing. One thing I noted the more I share with others, I tend to receive more than give out. This may sound illogical to some of you. If it is the case, then please read the link below:-

4. This is the way we used to reward our readers through the articles we blogged. One way to get rid of my fear is to share my secrets out because it is not my way/habit. Secondly, in the past, I always received negative advice and feedback yet I have so many unfulfilled BIG dreams. In order to preserve "harmony" in the environment, I have no choice and chose not to say it out. But that again struck my mind that how could society benefit if everyone kept silent. Then how could we claim ourselves as responsible persons. Similarly, we are indirectly helping the depressed to stay in power. As such, I decided to get rid of all my fears, one by one and steadfast was my firm stand, so as to glorify the Mighty God, who has strengthened me to do all things possible.

Thank you for your time to read this article. Please direct your friends here should you find this article useful to you.

Thanks again and looking forward to hearing from you again,

I, like many others, during the long holidays of Hari Raya and Our National day, took my family back to my hometown in Penang. Some of you especially those who followed my other blogs may be aware that I had a really fruitful trip this time.

On the way from Penang back to Petaling Jaya, I  almost hit the divider of the North South Highway as I fell asleep. When I woke up at that critical moment, what I knew was that my vehicle was heading toward the dividers in between both sides of the highway. At that spark of the moment, my right hand was holding the steering of the vehicle. I was very calm at that moment, I was told to use my left hand to move slightly from the bottom of the steering toward my right side. As a result, the vehicle then swung from the divider and back to the lane it is supposed to be. Thank Lord again for popping up to assist when I am in need, exactly proving the saying, " a friend in need is a friend indeed'.

This is another time He has saved my family. To refresh yourself, you may read some of my old testimonies at the links below:-

As we used to say that God never blinks, He always watches us because He cares and loves us. Like the above instance, He came to rescue and directed me to avoid the accident from happening. Why I am so sure of His assistance? This is because all the above events occurred within a spark of second and I was so calm that He is within me. When need arises, I let Him  used me as His vessel to direct my vehicle from hitting the divider. I know for certain that I could not do it if He did not come to our rescue. As such, I write this testimony to glorify Him knowingly that all titles, glories and honours belong to Him.

The following morning after I returned from Penang, I went to meet up with a few leaders from the African Navigator Group where they share their experience with us. When I share the above incident with them, they told me that my time is not up yet. That message instantly reminded me of my uncompleted tasks which was assigned by Him.

Furthermore during our discussion on that day, we were asked  why we choose to follow Christ. My immediate answer was  out of love to this question because He is the one who loves us first. He had done everything for us; He gives us life, salvation and word; He even redeemed our sins by abiding His father's will to die on the cross. I can't think of anything that makes me not to love and follow Him.

I write to thank Him for everything He has done for me and will definitely let Him use me as one of His vessels to do according to His will, and not my will. I know that I could not repay Him for what He has done for me. To let Him uses me as vessel is nothing when compared to what He has done for me.

So praise and thank Lord should be written into our hearts deeply.

Seeing you again and look forward to hearing from you,

Thank you so much for joining my blog.

As some of you may be well aware that I am always so excited to share with you what I'm doing on the web.

First of all, I must say that my life is not my own, but it belongs to God, who has created me in the first palce. After my soul seeking journey, I am, just like some of you here, I write to share with you how to take your life's Mission for Christ and spread it like wildfire across the internet. To me, this is the right way to thank and glorify Him, and not me.

As reported in my preceeding articles, my life changed dramatically when I accepted Him. Since then, He has shaped me to be stronger and healthier to overcome whatsoever challenges in the future. I must admit that He never abandon me no matter what situation I am in. At times, it is my choice of not trusting Him that caused me to stumble. After numerous revelations, I discovered my true self and begin to draw His grace to do whatsoever I need to stay right with Him. I realised he truth of His words and put them in practice in my daily life. The more I submit to Him, the more I realise that I am able to accomplish more with less. At the end of the day, I still have so much energy. That's means He worked and it was not my work. This is a miracle and seems illogical to us. Yet it is the truth. In short, this is just a suspension of natural law, but the operation of higher law- Divine Law, so to speak. This is in line with his advocate that we by our means can not add any value to anything, but relying on His grace will make all things possible. He does not insult us, but due to our limited knowledge we are ocasionally blind to the truth.

He made us conquerers so long as we commit to Him wholeheartedly with our minds and souls. We will then achieve so much more in our life, do you agree?

As such, let us stay united through Him and let Him guides us to make our mission a reality so as to glorify Him and not us. Let His mission shines through the message of Christ and let us be used by Him as His vessels to do His will at the end of the day.

I look forward to getting to know you and your experience.

Your chief Servant,

A very warm welcome to this uplifting blog,

As September 11 is approaching soon, many of us may recall the memorable day when the US was attacked by terrorists in her homeland where many thousands of innocent people were killed.

On the other hand, that day also reminded me of a great figure, Dato' Father A. Julien ( Feb 25, 1917 - Sept 11, 2004) who was called back to the Lord on Sept 11, 2004. See the photo yourself.

As such, this Sept 11, 2011 is coming to be his 7th anniversary. Thousands of people turned up during his funeral and many still remember him for life. I write about him, not because both of us have the same birthday or his Chinese name is the same as my Chinese sir name. But far more than these commonalities we both have. Please read further, you will then discover how he had impacted my life.

To read more about his background, please click the link below:-

He had touched many thousands of peoples' heart especially the Chinese community in Malaysia, who did not believe then that he, a foreigner, would set up the Chinese school in foreigner's land. With the grace from the Lord, he was able to sustain and endure all the pains and discomfort during the period when he began to deliver his mission. Thank God that he eventually delivered his mission that turned so many peoples' heart from disbelief to belief. He then gained an honour and was well regarded as a highly respected figure by people from all walks of lives. For those who know him well, will not have a dispute about it. Please come forward to praise him that he so truly deserve.

I can't imagine what many of us would be if he had not built the Chinese school in this land. As such, we are indebted to him very much and wouldn't be able to repay him all of our lives. He had also touched our lives so much and not one of us will forget him. Though he had gone, his spirit remains. He will be remembered forever. It is my great pleasure to have a chance to write a small column in my blog so as to give him an honour he well deserved.

I recalled that he, in his life time, he will always stand by to extend his help to anyone in need. He knew that majority of the students are from poor families and he always gave us encouragement to do better in our lives. He always cultivate good values into our lives. I must say that his motivation and encouragement had really made me do the extra miles. I must thank him for my success, which would not have been achieved without his efforts. He is one of the great people who really had a great impact on my life.

With this in mind, I know there is no way I can pay him back whatsoever he had done for me. At least, I will follow his footstep to give back to the society what I have been benefiting from. The articles which I share with you from day one is also the way I had learnt from him. By doing so, I, at least feel much better by playing my small part to uplift others who may need it. This is another way for me not to put his efforts and actions into waste.

Last but not least, I hope more people will step forward and follow his footsteps to leave a resounding good legacy behind, exactly like what he had done for many of us.

Thanks and together we will make a better tomorrow for the human beings in this planet. His departure is a great loss to Malaysia as a whole, particularly Penang where he had built several schools there.

Though he is gone, his spirit is still with us forever. Thousands of people still remember him despite he had left this planet more than 6 years ago. Our school even built a statue to remember him. No doubt all these things cannot match his contribution to our society as a whole.

His humble personality and smiling face always enlighten us. I must say that He is a man of great honour, who never expect any reward for his good work. By doing so, he gain substantial respect from anyone who had dealt with him one way or the other.

For students, I hope that this article will in some way encourage you to be better persons.
