A Tribute To Jessia: Kuching Can Beat Penang Anytime!

Jessica is an awesome friend...
She helped me arrange for the import of my current phone from Malaysia to NZ...
She encourages me when im down...
& she is still a good fren after soooooo long...

Now i love her even more because she has provided evidence to disprove wad all those west-side snobs hav been saying all this time...

Penang has the best food?
Westside is the best?
Not necessarily...
Why?
Check out her blog entry Kuching: The Place For Food!

Every part of Malaysia has got it's own specialty...
So suck up the pride & humble urself...
Enjoy the culture of others & share the glory!

My First Game of Mahjong!

After being curious about the game for a long long time...
I finally had the chance to learn the game last night (a few hours ago)!

However, i enjoyed being taught the game more than playing the game!
hehehe...
cz i got a really gorgeous teacher named Jenny!
I love her hair... wavy & long... i envy her...

Also she's jz adorable & gullible...
I pretended to be unable to read Chinese...
Pretended to be a klutsy fool...
Then, gav her a big shock when i won my very first game!
=)

I got so attactched to the game that i went on playing for hours!
It was AWESOME!!!
(hehe... cz i won so many rounds!)

Many thanks to Ester Yap for arranging the wonderful after church get-together party!

My Very First Original PC Game

Take a good look at the very first ORIGINAL game i bought!

*****
Hitman: Contracts
Developed by Io-Interactive
Published by Eidos (2004)
Purchased on 19 October 2006
*****

I hav always been a fan of the Hitman series & when i saw the DVD of this release on sale...
i had to purchace it!
=)

Furthermore, I enjoyed the game so much i finished it within 24hrs!
with around 12hrs of gaming...

Again i was very satisfied with the game...
Mainly cz it is a game that wants you to think...
Yes, you have to kill someone, but...
No, you dont have to kill everyone...

This game rewards you for being stealthy, selective, explorative & clever.
You can choose to go in with ur guns blazing like a madman...
or take the stealthy way like a true professional...

I play a very professional contract killer so...
i explore the area...
i use disguises...
i calculate every move...
i sneak my way beyond the detection of enemy & civilian...
i only expose myself when i seek to manipulate...
i rarely use a gun...
i prefer to kill when least expected...
i kill when ur showering...
i kill when ur back is towards me...
i never use a gun without a silencer...
i usually strangle or poison...
i complete my missions with great professionalism...
i am paid loads of money to be good...

hehehe...
awesome game!
its more of a puzzle game than a mind-less shooting game!
IT'S DEFINATELY WORTH A TRY!
=)

*****
p/s: i decided nt to keep the DVD so im selling it on TradeMe.co.nz!

======
UPDATE: 8/11/2006
I SOLD the game last night for $20 on trade me!

The Word has Become Flesh

I came across this article and...
IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!
=)

The Word Has Become Flesh
The Amish example: 'Gentle folk' of Pennsylvania living the Bible
Forgiveness is a virtue worth practicing
Amish killer's widow thanks families of victims for forgiveness

Posted: Friday, November 17 , 2006, 7:02
“Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you,” records the disciple Matthew in chapter 5 of his gospel book.

A couple of weeks ago a blooded shooting rocked the Amish community in Pennsylvania. The cold-blooded incident quickly spread throughout the world, sending a warning message of insecurity in the present world. But, the Amish community bounds back with an act that is poised to set a stunning example to the whole world. They have sent the message of forgiveness to the troubled world!

“Love your enemy,” is second nature to the Amish community since the dawn of age, and today the Word became flesh! In the most difficult, most sorrowful, and most impossible moment here comes the light. The Amish people have forgiven the assassin and his family. The teachings of Christ have stood the test; the Amish people have set a model to future generations. “Forgive your enemies” is now no longer a saying, but it has become as concrete as the Earth we are now standing on.

What comes after the tribulations to those who rest their security on Christ? Prayer! Jesus said, “Pray for those who persecute you.” For by human nature the Amish community would have resorted to violence and lawsuits, but they came up and stood strong with prayer. Jesus promised the work of the Holy Spirit for whoever prays for it, and by prayer the Holy Spirit has led the Amish community to forgiveness.

I wonder how the shooter’s wife can fathom the forgiveness the Amish people offer. Here is the testimony, “Gifts you've given have touched our hearts in a way no words can describe…” Who doesn’t shed touching tears of joy upon hearing that!

Never had the Words that Christ brought to men 2000 years ago been so real. Today we witness the dawn of a new civilization, the civilization that the One above has dreamed of since Creation. Today it is no longer a theory; it is not an abstraction of a utopian world anymore. Today it is a fact—that only forgiveness leads to peace.

The darkest hour comes before dawn… and rays of sunlight are emanating…

My First Cigarette

During the early morning of this day, something trajic occured in the life of my closest friend in Wellington...
A 4 year blooming flower has just been sliced off... under mutual agreement...

After work at our respective restaurants and getting home to Cumberland together...
Upon reaching the glass sliding doors, he told me to go up first, i was reluctant & suspicious...
i asked why...
in his dismay he took out a pack of cigarettes...
lighted one... and broke a 10 months & 2 days record of not smoking since his 7 year smoking chain.

I waited for the other smokers to finish & leave before i said anything...
"What's wrong? tell me..." i insisted even thou he tried a few times to evade the topic...
there was something broken inside of him that was hidden bt somehow apparent to me...

Upon further prodding, he finally confessed...
right then at that moment, i knew that i needed to show him a gesture of my support...
i dropped the books in my arms and reached out an empty hand...

"Give me one... i cant let u go through this alone... I must smoke with you!"
He tried to discourage me... but my resolve was unbreakable...
soon he handed me my very first cigarette & a lighter...
And i learnt to smoke... for the first time ever in my life... breaking a promise i made to myself a long time ago...

There is ntg i wont do for this brother...
Im with him...
even though we dont see eye to eye in many many aspects...
I know one thing we will not forsake...
Each Other's Moment of Need.
