How 2009 Is Going To End For You

How 2009 is going to end for you ?




I ask ..........................

How 2009 Is Going To End For Us

No emails....no facebook, no commitment, no limitation, no schedule, from now on, off all the tangles to something free& easy,....

We are going backpacking, with a sure attitude.

if we like the place, we stay,


if we don't, we move on,


if not, we come back,

it's not very difficult...isn't it ?

After Christmas of 2009 is done, it's 2010,

whether we like it or not, it's coming anyway.

so...

Happy happy, everyone.


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you. May God Bless you richly.

Faith-walks-meet-faith-the-twolegged-canine motivator

December 22 will be Faith the two legged canine's 7th birthday.,

Happy Birthday Faith

A normal dog has four legs,

but,

Faith has only two................

Despite her physical condition, this two legged cannine lives the extra-ordinary life, together with her owner, Jude Stringfellow, lit up many little flames of inspiration, awakening faith & bringing hope to meaningful living.

Hi Jude & Rueben, thanks for sharing Faith.

I picked up the story through BrandX blog from Goggle news.

I was inspired.

I hope you too.

brandX blog
Faith was born in a junkyard in December 2002. Stringfellow's then-17-year-old son, Reuben, rescued the scrappy pup, and with the help of peanut butter, mother and son taught her to walk on her hind legs. Since then, Faith has grown to be somewhat of a celebrity on the talk-show circuit -- even Oprah had the dog on -- and Stringfellow has become a motivational speaker and the author of two books. Many of the stops Faith and Stringfellow make are to the rehabilitation wards of veterans hospitals to cheer wounded soldiers.

From the Associated Press story:

For many, Faith brings a powerful message about overcoming adversity. "Faith has shown me that different is beautiful, that it is not the body you are in but the soul that you have," Jill Salomon of Montreal, Canada, wrote on Faith's website.

Stringfellow will never forget a woman from New York who happened to see Faith on a street corner. She was depressed and had lost both legs to diabetes.

"She was in her wheelchair and saw us. She was crying. She had seen Faith on television. She just held her and said she wished she had that kind of courage." Stringfellow said. "She told us: 'I was on my way to pick up the gun.' She handed the pawn ticket to a police officer and said she didn't need it anymore."

That sense of hope is especially important for Faith's visits to Army bases. Last weekend she headed to Washington state, where she met with as many as 5,000 soldiers at McChord Air Force Base and Ft. Lewis. Some of the soldiers were headed to war, some were coming back.

"She just walks around barking and laughing and excited to see them all," Jude Stringfellow said. "There is a lot of crying, pointing and surprise. From those who have lost friends or limbs, there can be silence. Some will shake my hand and thank me, some will pat her on the head. There is a lot of quiet, heartfelt, really deep emotion."

As the saying goes, "Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened." I don't know who said that, but truer words were never spoken:Richard Metzger

Parents To Learn When Children Are Grown Up

My friend, Aloysius shared a forward email on how to live life when children are grown up as adult, did a re-translation.


一、不要再替成年子女操心,才不會碎碎唸。



1. Overly concerned about adult children, will start us on annoying chatters, being subjected to parents's worry & hearing babbles is what adult children need least.


二、不要再將成年子女當成未成年來「監護」,以免顧人怨。
2. To the adult children, it's annoying when parents acting as guardian angel over them, just like they were underaged.


三、不必事事都「非知道不可」,尊重已成年子女的隱私權、自主權。



3.Parents should always ask themselves, is there really a need to know nitty gritty details and everything of adult children ? or is it better to respect their privacy, letting them learn in their own decision-making.


四、不要再以兒、孫為生活重心,尋找自己的園地,才不致天天望穿秋水。
4. Let the adult children raise their own children, after you have raised yours, do enjoy all of them, but go on to enrich your own life with friends in other social circles.


五、不要逢人就訴苦,寧可寫作、畫畫、練功、唱歌,以藝術、創作昇華情緒


5. Having a hobby, in writing, painting, sports & exercise, or singing, and being creative is better than living a life of complaint and boredom.

六、不要凡事抱怨,多欣賞、感謝別人為取悅你所做的努力。
6. Appreciate and be thankful of what adult children do to please you.


七、不要因孫輩和子女媳婿爭執衝突,這樣只會惡性循環,害了你的孫輩。


7. Avoid any tangles in dispute between children and grandchildren.


八、不要因病痛而唉唉叫,有病要治病,領了藥要服藥,治不好的要忍耐。
8. If you have a sickness, find a way to get well, if the pain persists,consult a doctor, if the pain doesn't go away, be patient to find a solution.


九、不要疑心病太重,要感激還願意留在你身邊的人,免得最後連他也走了!

9. Always appreciate children's effort to get near to you, being skeptical will not build relationship, for skepticism drives people out of your life.


十、有堅定的信仰,對未來抱著開心、樂觀的態度。


10. Have unweavering faith to see there is always a better future & be happy about it.

如果以上十點,每一點是十分,祝福各位聰明的老人,都能幸福一百分

If each of the above is 10 marks for each , and 10 x 10 equals 100, hope you will score high marks for yourself to be happy.

-- advisor unknown --

How true, common sense advices, but yet so easily overlook...


Letting go of the children to live their own life to face challenges is what we must do......

and live our portion of gift of life blessed to us positively seem to be the answer.


look like best not to annoy anyone..........one way or another.

OOooo, now, it's old man's turn to hold peace.

Emmmm, this make sense.

When You Believe by Maria Carey N Whitney Houston

These pictures of purple flowers taken in Bukit Tabur is my favorite collection, I am happy to use them.

Just feel that Yen Kee will need not only the donation, that the public can bless her with, encouragement will be a kindness to make her feel loved.

Victoria chose a song, to encourage Yen Kee, while i work on the video and turn it into a movie clip.

The final section of the movie clip was done when we were taking a rest during our Qigong session, most friends were so willing to say a word or two to Yen Kee. to encourage her to be strong, to be brave, to hope.............the auntie in yellow collar / blue t-shirt is a natural leader, so impromptu was she when she took over the whole session while i shot the video, coming up with the script leading the entire team to encourage Yen Kee.

Hi Yen Kee, this is for you. there are so many people out there, loving you....









All the time spent, sleepless night in learning to make movie is addictive until the work is done.

I am satisfied, and filled with joy after learning a new skill........simple movie making, probably more movies to come in this blog.

Never mind the countless editing, re-editing, I am learning to sing too THERE CAN BE MIRACLES....when you believe.

Lyrics When You Believe by Maria Carey

Lyrics of When you believe by Maria Carey N Whitney Houston can be found here

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe


In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove(s) in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away

Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe


They don't (always happen) when you ask
(Oh)
And it's easy to give in to your fears
(Oh...Ohhhh)
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way straight throught the rain
(A small but )still resilient voice
Says (hope is very near)
(Ohhh)

Working With GuangMing Ribao On Donation

When we came across the plight of Leukemia girl, Yeoh Yen Kee needing financial assistance for her bone marrow transplant, we immediately checked with the GuangMing Ribao newspaper that published their plight.

They replied to me officially saying that this is a genuine case of need.

AS the words pass around, we have some confused donors, who checked with us why there are two accounts to receive the donations, one is through GuangMing Ribao and another goes to the personal account of the leukemia girl Yeoh Yen Kee.

We asked the same question that was asked to us to GuangMing's office, advising that some donors are confused why there are two accounts ?

The donor said that when big organisation soliciting for public donation, the company who drives the project will front it with their company account, and all collection is channel accordingly.

In this case, since GuangMing Ribao front it, it should be only GuangMing Ribao 's account, why is there alongside another personal account crop up.

Over to you GuangMing Ribao, help us to answer this question.

Help Pours in For leukemia Girl Yeoh Yen Kee

It is this kind of generosity & kindness, by those who care that touches my heart, and am pretty sure will touch the heart of Yen Kee too.



A donor who walked in to the Guangming Ribao, Petaling Jaya Office. He donated in cash


A donor from Petaling Jaya




This is a donor from Port Dickson

Your privacy is respected and your anonymity is maintained, To all the faceless donors who comes with different faces of the cheque, may God Bless you abundantly.

Like the above 3 that i have randomly selected to show what has been done, I appeal to all of you, please, come forward, do likewise to help someone in need.

Charity for Leukemia Girl Yeoh Yen Kee

Mountaining climbing and Leukimia is totally two different things that doesn't seem to have a common denominator.

However, mountain climbers and trekkers do share something in common, that is they have a passion for nature and they persue health.

We are now in the process of organising a charity project to raise fund for a leukemia girl, Yeoh Yen Kee, as a contribution towards her bone marrow transplant.

How it works......
When will it be...?
To what cause are we spending our energy for ?
To what extend and what can we do to contribute ?
Will anyone responded to our call for help ?

What if it is not fruitful ???





What if nobody respond to this ????





1000 and 1001 what if




........and the fear of uncertainty as well as unknown.





These are the questions that came across my mind when the plight of Yen Kee was highlighted.

If ever there is a comparison of what the family of Yen Kee gone through facing the challenges of getting their beloved daughter back to health, and imagine what have Yen Kee herself gone through, the above questions seem answered by itself.


Each & everyone of us has limited resources, in terms of time & money, put all the trekkers together, we can churn out a force to move mountain.



Can we do something to help ???

Fund Raising : Bone Marrow Transplant For Ms Yeoh Yen Kee

We are organising a fund raising project to raise fund for a leukemia girl, Yeoh Yen Kee, as a contribution towards her bone marrow transplant.





Target to do it in November, a total 4 weeks.

We will call upon people to donate and we will provide a service to take them up Bukit Tabur in Kuala Lumpur as a gesture of goodwill for their donation to Yen Kee.

How it works
1) Donors are to bank in the donation to Guangming Ribao's account.
2) Send us the proof or receipt to my e-mails and a team of others that will come in to help as volunteers. ( will keep inform )
3) we will coordinate to take donors up Bukit Tabur.

We had few would be trekkers that have never been up Bukit Tabur has indicated that they like our idea and we will expand this to others.


since we like mountain, we just do something extra for charity to help this leukemia girl.




pls write to me if you have

1) donors who wants to do as a corporate body.



2) I have already received poitive response from our regular trekkers to Bukit tabur and some others experienced trekkers to come in to make this project a success.

We possibly will need to have a pool of volunteers to chip in for this project more interesting too.

Calling for leader/sweepers etc... with vast experience in mountain trekking especially Bukit tabur to come forward to help.

( we reserve the right to take in/reject candidates based on our own descretion for this purpose )

3) Other ways to help such as linking us to others to reach bigger audience with aim to solicit for donation for this fund raising purpose.

4) Donation amount : we do not set any pre-requisite for any donation amount for this fund raising, we are of the opinion that no matter how big/small is the donation, it's the heart that desire to help & love that counts.



We will update from time to time

A million thanks

助楊顏琦渡過難關。

Except from Guang Ming Ribao

優異生患血癌需20萬移植骨髓

(大山腳訊)大馬教育文憑11A優異生楊顏琦,因患上血癌而被迫放棄到捷克就讀醫學系。她在接受治療1年的化療後情況有轉,原以為可以當醫生圓夢,詎料血癌再度復發,她目前急需20萬令吉進行骨髓移植手術。

楊顏琦(19歲)於去年5月證實患上血癌,在今年康復的她,萬萬沒想到自己在重獲健康短短兩週後,再度被癌魔纏上。

楊顏琦在家中排行第三,有一對兄姐及一個妹妹。父親楊亞華(62歲)雖然是一名建築承包商,為了女兒的病,他在過去一年半幾乎處於停工狀態。儲蓄幾近耗盡

楊顏琦先前在檳城醫院共花了約7至8萬令吉醫藥費,加上生活費及兄弟姐妹的求學費用,楊家已差不多耗盡儲蓄。

她病發後,醫生表示化療已無法壓制癌細胞,必須盡快進行骨髓移植手術。由於馬來西亞、新加坡及台灣都找不到適合她的骨髓,醫生只能往國尋找,是本地比較罕見的例子。雖然已經找到骨髓,運輸費及骨髓費價格不菲,大約需要9萬美金(約31萬3200令吉),骨髓一旦抵馬,她即在安邦醫院進行手術。

這次的醫藥費估計需要20萬左右,對楊家來說是個重擔。他們希望社會熱心人士慷慨解囊,助楊顏琦渡過難關。

出國讀醫夢碎
楊顏琦原本獲得公共服務局獎學金資助,到捷克就讀醫學系,卻因為患癌而打碎了出國夢。她如今在日新國中就讀中六,所獲得的獎學金則獲準延遲一年,但日後只可以在馬來西亞繼續醫學課 程。

開朗的楊顏琦表示,她在患病初期非常難過,一度十分執著,終日以淚洗臉。在家人朋友的鼓勵下,她漸漸學會以平常心待,並感恩現在擁有的一切。
她指出,在患病期間目睹許多血癌病人離世,令她感慨萬分。她語帶哽咽地說,希望本身康復後可以繼續深造當醫生,將來幫助那些和她一樣遭的人。

有意捐助楊顏琦的熱心人士,可把義款交到光明日報辦事處,以轉交《光明公益金》處理。支票背面請註明捐助楊顏琦。

My Redeemer Lives-Team Hoyt

A son said to his father " Dad, will you be willing to run the marathon with me ? "

The father, despite his age and a heart disease, said " YES "

and they run marathon together.

The son said to his father " Dad, can you run the marathon with me again ? "

The father said " YES "

One day, the son asked " Dad, can you do the ironman with me ? "

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) consisting of a 2.4 miles (3.86 km) swim, a 112 miles (180.25 km) bike and a marathon (26 miles 385 yards, 42.195 km) run, raced in that order and without a break.

My Ways Are Not Your Ways : September 14

...........Continue from My Thought are Not Your Thoughts...


" The baby has three loops of umbilical cord tied round her neck, that's the reason why she was in that breeched position. " the gynae declared after the Cesarean surgery to the anxious daddy waiting eagerly to know everything about the birth of the baby.

" I have never seen such strong-will baby fighting for survival in my profession " he continued.

" beautiful and sweet girl you have....." he patted the daddy on his shoulder, and off he went on his routine.

Our God is an Awesome God. He is the Great I am.


He has protected the baby's life.


Psalm 139 : 13-16 NIV version
For You created her inmost being;

You knit her together in her mother’s womb.

14 She praise you because she is fearfully and wonderfully made;

Your works are wonderful,

She know that full well.

15 Her frame was not hidden from You

when she was made in the secret place.

When she was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 Your eyes saw her unformed body.

All the days ordained for her



No words could described our joy when the baby was dedicated to the Lord a month later in Metro Tabernacle A/G, our church.



Each birthday that we celebrate, we know O God, that You are the giver of life, forever & ever.




Happy Birthday Amelia


May the Lord bless and protect you,
May the Lord's face radiate with joy because of you,
May He be gracious to you,
Show you His favor & give you peace.

Num 6 :24 -26

Takes good care of yourself, be healthy, be safe, be observant & street smart, have fun & learn.

Add value, you have a bright future ahead of you.

Here are some birthday wishes for you.

My Thoughts Are Not Your Thoughts....even in traffic jam

Last few years, has seen the road leading to city gone through some upgrading, from a dual lane road to what looks like work is still in progress now; 4 lanes on both sides of the road in Setapak/Wangsa Maju.

Traffic jam was everyday living back then.

The incident while we were caught in traffic jam 20 years ago in September 2000...........is still fresh in our memory...

I was in my third tri-mester of pregnancy, the near full term tummy was about to be cut open in barely 10 days time.

The doctor announced that the baby was still in breech position.

It was earlier, we prayed to God and asked that He turned the baby's head down, the ultrasound scan said otherwise.

We tried talking to the baby, saying that the medical bill will be halved if she came out by normal birth etc... etc....etc...and the money could be used for......



We pleaded saying mummy was scared to be cut open in the middle, can you turn your head down and a nice pelvic socket was awaiting for you.

Further ultrasound scan didn't show that she understood anything we said.




My thoughts of following normal birth, just like giving birth to her eldest brother came to naught.

All efforts were in vain.

The baby didn't barged a bit.





We heard someone said that in Jalan Ipoh, there was a gynae who can help massage tummy to turn the baby's head down, & lodged the baby at the pelvic socket, ready for normal birth.

We kind of like the idea of getting help to turn the baby down.




Then, we made appointment to see if he could help.

He said he could.

One strange practice in his clinic, we need to pay RM 10/= for every registration just to get a number ( a turn ) to see him.

We had been to his clinic twice, and now this was the third time we were about to visit him.

The idea of paying a RM 10/= for each registration put us off.

The road in Wangsa maju was jammed with cars, the traffic was haphazard, motorcyslists zig-zaged themseleves, weaving in between cars.

There were many ways to get to the city.

We husband and wife didn't even think about which way to take when the car hit unto the road.





Our thoughts were choked up, just like the traffic jam on the road.

We were really wondering whether we were doing the right thing then.

The baby, the fear of being cut open, the bill that was going to be charged double if birth by Cesarean by our original gynae versus the resources that we had.


" Why not you use another way ? " silly me demanded when we were already stucked in the traffic jam.

" ................................................." Deep in his thought.

" if we go by the housing estate way, there will be less traffic. " I thought it was a smart idea.

"..................................................." Looking at the rear window to see if there was any way he could cut into another lane.




" if we go by Wangsa Maju way, it will take one hour, if we go through housing estate, it takes 45 minutes. " I may not be 100 % accurate but sure I was observant with time.




"...................................................." He was concentrating on the road.

" the heat is terrible, I want the air-condition adjusted." another demand.

"..................................................." he reached the knob and turned on the air-condition higher.

" what ?????, how can he cut through our lane just like that " I was agitated.




" ................................................" awoken from his deep concentration on the road, by my scream rather than someone cutting into his lane.

" How can you just keep quite about this, honk him." I was clearly upset with his inaction towards the inconsiderate driver who cut lane suddenly without signals.

"................................................." No response.

" I don't want to go by this way," bursting my emotion.

" why ?????.........?????.........."




" I don't want to go for the appointment........" My tears rolled in sobs.

" why ???????????...............?"

" I want to go back. " I was hysterical.

" OK, OK.................??........!!!......"

" I wanna go back now."

"OK, OK...................."

" There is a turning in front, we can turn back home. " despite the tears that flew like waterfall, I could still see clearly a junction in front.





and off we went the opposite direction of Jalan Ipoh on September 5, 2000.


To be continued.............................

Andrew Loh Zhu An

Knowing Andrew, who studies at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania in USA was when Amelia was doing her college application essay.

Just know that Andrew is a high achiever , I bet you will be speechless when you read his resume.

Don't believe me ?

To sum up what someone said. He is " SCARY ".

Do You know the meaning of " SCARY " ???? Just google up " Andrew Loh Zhu An " will get you the answer.


I have been wanting to meet him personally for so long to say " thank you " for the help he rendered to Amelia in the process of her US College application.

Finally we met in Sunway when we brought our guest Mr. Ahmet from Turky to Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre.

The first few greetings and words Andrew spoke to Mr. Ahmet, uttered in Turkish language had Mr. Ahmet laughed so heartily that they created an almost instant rapport.


Following that they talked to each other in Arabic which had even some of the tourists at the Archery Centre spelled bound.



Focus, no two way about what he wants, strategic thinker, stop to take stock in life.


What a fine young man Andrew is, someone who strives not only to be an achiever academically, but be available to some worthy causes, touching life and leaving impact on others' life ( Swarthmore Bosnia Project etc....)

You ask my first impression of him, well, as he is peers with Amelia, he is such a Happy Kid to me.


then, you may ask, doesn't he has any worry ?

Oh.....on that, I am sure he has many.

To lessen his worry, I offered to help keep all his appointments, doing selection and screening through on all the candidates who wants to meet him.

He gladly accepted my offer and mind you, within very short time, the records show the booking of almost 120 pages and there are more entries which i have a hard time choosing.

So,

all Leng Loi,
