13 April 2016


I was typing this even as I was walking home from the mrt cos I was so excited! I know I have to write this down and share it if not I would implode...

The day was jaw-droppingly AMAZING. It started with a solid talk about marriage and its pitfalls during sponsored lunch with moi anointed mentor. Another topic for another day!

   Didn't realize the Force was behind us! 

Then good ol' English Breakfast Tea at Starbucks talking about our destinies and lamenting how lonely this walk can sometimes be. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป

Continued sipping my tea ☕️ and stumbled upon an old photo which reminded me what Presence is and released it into the atmosphere. 

Always have to include my fave preacher when I take such photos. #BecosFavorite ๐Ÿ’— 

While shopping, bumped into an old friend and chatted for like 3 mins in which I managed to relay information that I had just heard moments ago. Like... woah?

Crossed over to my parents' workplace where my aunt treated me to her famous rojak and we made each other laugh over BYK & LKY anecdotes. ๐Ÿ˜„ My mum bought me and my aunt juices and we supported the popiah kor kor and juice uncle! ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ’—

Encouraged a friend over dinner whom said my presence meant a lot. Kept an open mind and followed her to a group that meets on Tuesdays and was greeted by very pleasant and familiar faces seated right behind us! HELLO!!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป✋๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป✋๐Ÿป

Then the really unexpected plot twist - Heard a word in season and got cajoled into prayer at the end which turned out to be darn accurate when the pst preaching and praying doesn't even know me from Eve and I don't know him from Adam! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

But most importantly I heard the voice behind the voice... I've been feeling really lonely in this walk lately when I look to my left and look to my right (urgh look ahead Wendy!) but God showed me that He is a Father to the Fatherless and He sets the lonely/solitary in families:

We've been bound for far too long, I think the time has come that God brings us out the dry valley into His prosperity (which is His presence, peace and power, not ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ okay pls ๐Ÿ˜).

And then it struck me that moi anointed mentor and I were just talking about how lonely it can sometimes feel earlier this afternoon! Our answer is right there in Psalms 68! 

My heart is FULL ❤️❤️❤️ and I'm so blown away! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

#SoSharpICantEven!!! #LightSabreMuch #AMAZED 
#TimetoSingThatSidneyMohedeWorshipSongOnceMore........ ๐Ÿ˜ญ

We had an open and honest fellowship over delicious egg and cheese prata which I was AGAIN blessed with and made a new and hilarious friend! 

And as I thought the day couldn't get more amazing... I wanted to make the final edits on my laptop after I finished typing but I couldn't find it anywhere and I had brought it out with me today! Turns out that... I amazingly left it somewhere! ๐Ÿ˜…

No, but really that's not the amazing part -  My new friend, whom I had just met for less than 2 hours, remembered that I wasn't carrying my laptop with me on our way home. He found out the number of the prata shop, called, spoke to the person and found out that my laptop is there, safe and sound. He even offered to cycle there to help me to collect it initially!! I mean, really??? Can somebody say ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿป?

So here I am typing this on my mobile and turns out that it's quite convenient to blog from my phone and I wasn't gonna let the disappearance of my laptop stop me from sharing! Haha! Cos i know I have to write it now when I ๅฟƒ่ก€ๆฅๆฝฎ (got flow) if not I won't do it anymore. 

And ya, I'll be collecting my laptop back tmr. THANK YOU!

More To Life

 I'm blessed to have a good job and am happily married to a handsome husband with a place to ourselves, haha. I have almost everything I need. Yet, I can't help but feel restless. Don't get me wrong, it's not that i'm unhappy cos I am. I just feel that I was meant to do so much more with my life.

How am I different from everyone else if I graduate, work, get married, have kids, see them grow up, eventually retire, become a granny & die? What truly is the meaning of my existence?

Gaga is 26, empowering people across the world with her music while taking over the philanthropy baton from Oprah all at the same time... I'm 25 & the world wouldn't even remember me when I'm gone.

The thing is Gaga was born to sing, music is the air she breathes & she knows it fully well since she was a kid.

What was I born to do that I must do & if I don't, i'm just another 1 in 6 billion?

What legacy can I leave behind before I die?

Until these questions gets answered, i'm gonna keep knocking on Destiny's doors. Cos I know in my heart that there is more to Life.

On a side note, I love watching X Factor USA cos many of the contestants say with steel in their eyes, "I have to do this. This was my dream since I was a kid." And of course, you've got to see the alien who started singing at age 2 & is already world class at 13:

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

Rubbing Shoulders with Velda, Daniel Ong & Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim on World Kindness Day

So show off rite my title!? Need to catch your attention then you will read mah lol! =P I'm very sleeepy now so let the pictures do the talking!

All changed and ready!

With my fave blogger friends, Charlene & Stephen!


And met emo rocker a.k.a Everscar!

Love his hair color! And how 17-year-old nowadays can afford a DSLR just by working part time is a mystery to me. God, what was I doing when I was seventeeen?

Guess who's the lady behind me on the right!?  =D

 Look what I found in the goodie bag? Food for thought eh? =D

I was part of a press release, hehe!

Look at the throngs and throngs of volunteers!

Tada... Velda was nice! I have 3 Love Bonito outfits to date! =D

Kind of cool to be on the same stage with Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim, even if it's just for a few minutes!


Giving out daisies to strangers on Orchard Road was kind of cool! Feel slightly irritated by those who didn't want to accept though... If someone shows kindness to you... accept it people! :) A father of a family said to me when I was giving him a daisy, "But I'm not very kind." I said, "Haha nvm, you'll be kinder." =D

To a kinder world!

Dr. Yonggi Cho's Comment on the Japanese, $25 Million Fraud Investigation and Meeting Pastor Kong & Sun!

Woke up yesterday to this shocking news:

(Source: Straits Times)

(Source: Straits Times)

When I first read a news report in March post-earthquake regarding his comment on the fate of the Japanese, I thought to myself, "Erm, is this article reliable? Did he really say that or did the reporter misquoted him?" (Ha, being a Mass Comm student taught me not to believe everything I read and I also didn't want to believe lah cos I thought of him as a very kind person.)

Fast forward 6 mths later, Straits Times has disproved my suspicion. I remembered being upset if that was really what he said. Mind you, the whole world was mourning with Japan then. Can you imagine how the Japanese must have felt when they hear a South Korean say they deserved the devastating earthquake?

Yet in retrospect, I can understand what possessed Dr. Cho to make such a seemingly unkind comment; my grandma also said something along the lines of the Japanese paying for their past sins (referring to the earthquake) and I don't blame her or Dr. Cho for such prejudiced views towards the Japanese cos they had to go through what I didn't - World War II.

Granny was only a teenager then and her family had to hide in the jungles for fear that the Japanese would capture my great grandfather who was a village head. I think what was most scary was that she had to look like a boy and dress shabbily so that the Japanese soldiers wouldn't rape her.

She is now 84 years old while Dr. Cho is 75 and you know, that's how the older generation talk sometimes - they cannot help themselves as they're very set in their views. I guess the difference is that the latter is very educated and was/is a pastor of the world's largest church, which made his comment that much harder to swallow.

I visited New Life Church in Taipei when I was there for vacation 
in June and guess who was preaching?

Mrs. Cho! =) A.k.a Dr. Kim.

Loved their bulletin and envelop btw, so colorful and cheery! Dr. Kim's message was about being happy and rejoicing even in trying circumstances. She shared how she had to learn to overcome really trying circumstances in her life, like when certain people in her church disagrees with certain things, no details mentioned...

Who are these 29 elders and what do they have to gain if this was a baseless accusation done only to smear Dr. Cho?

They must be super long time church members like twenty years kind if not how to become elders and hold leadership positions right? The question on my mind is why would these long time church leaders have the guts to file a civil suit against Dr. Cho if they honestly did not have any substantial evidence to believe so? They are long time church leaders but they actually have no moral integrity? Then how did they even become leaders in the first place? Hmmmmmm........

If this happened in CHC, it'll be like Pst Tan, Derek, Aries, etc. coming together to sue Pst Kong for misuse of funds! Unimaginable and freaking scary rite!

If this was a baseless accusation thrown just so that Dr. Cho and his family would relinquish control of the church... WA LIAO. If I were the senior pst, I would throw them out of church once investigations results are out and let them go find another one. I mean, how could you do this to the man who slogged his entire life to make the church what it is today and betray him like that?

I dunno if that's what Jesus would do in the same circumstance but that is what I would do lol. (I'm obviously not called to be a full-time pastor! =D)

I don't want to speculate why Dr. Cho cannot let go mgmt of the church funds completely etc. but I imagine it must be really hard to... If like him, you've invested 50 yrs of your life into an organization, would u be able to bo chup when you retire? I think that requires a lot of faith, doesn't it? =D

As Aaron and I were leaving New Life's premises, a really good-looking usher chatted with us as he led us to the main exit:

Me: " ๆˆ‘ไปฌๆ˜ฏๆ–ฐๅŠ ๅกไบบ." (We're Singaporeans.)

The usher: "Oh, ไฝ ไปฌๆ˜ฏไพ†่‡ชๅŸŽๅธ‚ไธฐๆ”ถๆ•™ไผš็š„ๅ—? ่ƒฝ้‡่งไฝ ไปฌ็œŸๆ˜ฏๆˆ‘็š„่ฃๅนธ!" (Are you guys from City Harvest? It's such an honor to meet you!)

Me: *Looks at Aaron*  Er......

Aaron: "Oh, ๅฏน" (Ya.)

Me: *nervous laughter*

What a tricky question to ans in that few seconds we had! My bf is, I'm not, but he's like so delighted to hear we're from CHC how to tell him I was but left cos my zone pastor started a new church!? I didn't want to shock him lah, hahaha. Later the perfect image of CHC in his mind gets shattered how?  ๅฎถๅฎถๆœ‰ๆœฌ้šพๅฟต็š„็ป! (Each family has its own troubles that are difficult to explain!)

I dreamed about meeting and talking to PK & Sun for years but never had I imagined that when I finally did, it was at a farewell party in Jan for the few of us who were gonna leave. ='(

I got to sit beside Sun! I was so nervous I looked at Jamie, looked at her prawn and then looked at mine and we both smiled sheepishly cos we didn't want to appear unglam in front of them by using our hands! Hahaha.

Sun was everything I thought she'll be - really friendly, down to earth and so very nice and fun to be with. The best part was she remembers who I am. I was the crazy girl who sent her a  msg on FB about how excited I was to be going to Gaga's concert in Singapore in 2009. The girl who tweeted her and asked if it takes very long to perfect a song in the studio when she was recording one day. And she replied both. I LOVE HER.

Oh and I realized at the dinner that... PK actually eats! Was surprised he is human just like me cos I can never fast 21 days like him! He even had 2 portions! :) *relieved to know both he and I are normal, hahaha* He can be serious but he can also be funny, he said Sun was so slim she she looked like the skeleton on her top! =D

Before they arrived, Pst Darren asked me to be zai and keep my cool but....

Thanking 'em & saying goodbye with tears in my eyes!

How to be cool when CHC is the church I called home for 8 years and that might be the last time I will ever meet them face to face again? I didn't knoww howwww.

Family portrait! =D

Some friends said they think Sun and I look alike, watcha think!? Skin tone, check. Cheekbones, check. Fringe covers half an eye, check! HAHAHA. Differences are her eyebrow points upwards and her face is so much slimmer! I think if my face was slimmer and if I looked slightly younger I could pass off as their daughter rite!? OMG so buay hia bai hahahaha!

I agree with PK, that people are innocent until proven guilty. In my deepest hearts of heart, I don't believe that Dr. Yonggi Cho is capable of a $25 million fraud and even more so, I don't believe that PK and Sun would intentionally misappropriate CHC's funds after all these years of teaching us integrity, sacrificing their life to build the church only to sabotage it later on.

It took the authorities only 5 months to investigate Ren Ci but it's taking them more than 15 months for CHC. God knows why the government which prides itself to be very efficient is taking so long. I hope they hurry up and release the investigation results already, thirty over thousand pple need to find closure can? :)

No matter the outcome of Dr Cho or CHC's investigation results, I will always remember the fond memories I had in City Harvest (that deserves at least a blog post of its own!) and am eternally grateful! ♥

Chris Medina - What Are Words

This is one of those special, rare moments when I break into tears upon hearing a song & its story for the 1st time.

Chris Medina and his gf dated for 8 years and they got engaged, but something tragic happened just 2 months before their wedding...

This is his 1st song release since not making into American Idol 2011 Top 24. I'm surprised the video has only 14 million hits; it deserves at least a 100!

I don't even know if I could love anyone as much as he loves her... If you are touched by his unwavering love for his fiancee like I am, you know what to do.

Reminded me of His unconditional love for me... =') Thanks so much for sharing it Alissa!

Bought a Washer for $299, Won A Blackberry Torch for $1!

I woke up this morning and one of the first few emails I saw was this!

Realized their edm is actually made up of a few pictures, lazy to join 'em tgt!



I needed to buy a washing machine for my new place so I thought what great timing and how nice it would be if I could win the Blackberry Torch at the Anniversary Draw since it's the most expensive prize on the menu! =D

I know nuts bout washing machines so thankfully the salesman was pretty good, knows his stuff well and recommended me to get LG. LIFE's Good! ;p He said the brand is known for household appliances.

Asked him a few questions, compared a few brands and within 15 mins I was like, "Okay buy!" All sales pple dream of meeting clients like that everyday I tell u! Of course it helped that my mom will be paying for it not me heh heh!

Simple-looking LG WFT 6600.

The impressive part is their Turbo Drum Technology:

"In normal washing machines, only impellers are moving. However, in LG's washing machines both the impeller and drum move simultaneously and in opposite directions, like a handwash, creating multiple water whirls and thousand eddies. This delivers a powerful wash that can remove the toughest dirt yet is gently enough on your delicate fabrics."

Originally $345, discounted price at $299, come with 2 years warranty. Bought the Extended Warranty Plus at $149 in case it breaks down after 2 yrs & he waived the delivery & installation charges of $29.90 for me! :)

It's a low end washer afterall, saw many retailing at more than $1500+ kind! Really need so ex so gd one meh? So now my washer is covered for 5 yrs and full replacement on 4th repair, if ever, awesome! Even washing machines need insurance, lolol.

Scribbled my details like mad on all 9 of the lucky draw coupons I got cos it was only mins left to the 9pm draw but they extended it for like 30 mins more, panicked for nothing!

Many more lucky draw items up for grabs over the weekend!


I can't remb the host's name but he was super funny - after the Courts guy (I think he's the VP of that outlet or something) selected a coupon he said, "Wah this person's handwriting like my armpit hair!" I thought, "YES GOT HIGH CHANCE LIAO!" Lolol!

There were about 50 other pple standing around me eagerly anticipating to win too but there can only be one winner and I was so confident that I held my camera in my hand in case my name was called!

Passed it to someone to help me snap the winning photo. 
Whyyy did u not tilt yr head down Wendy!?

I know rite, of all the days I choose to wear blue when I visit Courts. Can totally pass off as a staff. =p

 Apparently it's worth $1099?

A quick check with the reseller guy whom I previously sold iPhones to quoted me only $500 for it. This model came out in Aug last year so I guess the value is no longer as high.

I think the Blackberry Torch 9800 is the 1st one to have both a keyboard AND a touchscreen.

I've not used a Blackberry before but apparently it's really useful for pple who travel a lot so I might not sell it since it'll be my turn to do so next year, maybe God knows I would need one! :))

There also had hourly deals where they slashed the prices of selected items. A Olympus Pen I camera was going for $499, originally $899 or $999.

Introducing my fave buy of the day:

A Sony Stereo Headset originally retailing at $60+! It's Gold in color and even has a built in microphone & detachable Voice Tube.

 I can totally see myself using it often in hotel rooms in the future when I'm not heading out!

I probably will be Skyping Aaron, rocking to Gaga (doing that now while typing this entry!) or watching Grey's Anatomy on my laptop & get all sentimental! :)


In the Twitter war that started yst no thanks to the uniqueness of the 'iPhone' & 'Blackberry', may I cheekily suggest a truce in the form of an....

Android! =p

The new Galaxy S II has a much bigger screen than the iPhone 4 and yet much lighter and is equipped with a 8 megapixels camera! =O Can also use Adobe Flash which Apple apparently hates, can watch catchup tv on xinmsn wherever u go how cool is that!? Very tempted to buy! :) My only concern is a lack of applications in the Market!

Somehow, there seems to be a lack of graciousness in the S'pore Blogosphere... Some bloggers hate each other and are unequivocally vocal about it. And taken to the extreme, it becomes Cyber Bullying, "I'm popular, u're not", "I have so many blogger friends, u don't". I think it hurts the atmosphere of camaraderie that we are supposed to have as a community and makes some of us uncomfortable...

Gaga sang in a new Jazz song with Tony Benett, " I never bother with people that I hate, that's why, this chick is a tramp." (U can listen to it here) Gaga is someone whom you'll never catch bitching bout others in public even though she has all the power in the world to do so and that's something that I really, really admire bout her. What a gracious, sophisticated woman! I aspire to be like her - artistic, fearless & yet, a kind soul to the very core.

Here's to more love in the blogosphere! :)

 It’s actually a thumb drive preloaded with information on Notikum! Got to love their PR team!

I was thinking pple is Director so I had better be polite and address him formally but he was like, “Dun call me Mr. Teng, just call me Lennon!” =D He is no Poly-Halfway-Dropout and surely he doesn’t have Permanent Head Damage if not how to come up with such a brilliant invention rite? He is an actual PHD student with a business idea, salutes!

I had to make (for the lack of a better word) the makeup I put on just to attend this event worthwhile! =p Need to improve on my skills though, no ugly hand showing next time!

 With Lennon’s cousin, Lindson. I think it’s spelled like that!

Fist of Dragon ้พ™ๆ‹ณ Gala Premiere

Fist of Dragon hits the cinema today and I was privileged to catch it first at the gala premiere last week!

 From the producers of Ip Man 2... a joint production between China & Singapore!

The bloggers I met were really friendly and nice! :)

Treats were a mini-buffet spread and fruit punch! 

I was busy interacting with the bloggers & snapping away on my cam that I plainly forgot I was on a strict no-soft-drinks diet and had a few glasses of the sugary drink oops!

With the director and lead actor, Michael Chuah ่”กไธš็ฟฐ!

He's the hero of the movie, saving a village of innocent people that had suffered under the brunt of a group of gangsters as they had often forced the villagers to give them protection money or would physically injure them.

I think he must know real kung fu in order to carry out the countless fighting moves in the show. I imagine ่‡ชๆ‹่‡ชๆผ” must have been pretty challenging!

 This handsome guy which I didn't get to take a pic with is Monday Kang!
Interesting name, haha!

He stars as a sadistic gang leader in the movie and of all the actors, I feel that his performance was the most outstanding. I find his character really believable though I think it's really difficult to act as someone sadistic!

Then in came, the superstar, Henry Thia a.k.a ่พ‰ๅ“ฅ

He was utterly hilarious right from the moment he came in and stirred us all into a good crackle. A true blue comedian! 

Surprisingly, Fiona Xie ่ฐขๅฎ›่ฐ• also stars in this movie as the prodigal daughter of Henry Thia's character. I thought she was no longer in the entertainment scene? The last I heard she immigrated away from Singapore for good.

For those who love action-packed movies and appreciate Martial Arts, this movie is a must watch! It demonstrates how good will ultimately triumph over evil and justice will prevail.


Now at a cinema near you! :)
