Life is Heart

Watch what The Star, NST and other newspapers are featuring about!

There are moments when we lose all our dreams and all we live for. But life has a way of springing a surprise when we least expect; when we least deserve it.

A heartwarming story of a boy and a girl, their dreams and... a bear.

Come and reignite dreams, and experience hope; as some things do matter... and it's a matter of the heart.

(An original short film by Acts Church.)

Premiered on Christmas Day 2011.

Our short film was featured on The Star.

I'm so proud of all those who were involved in Life is Heart... especially... YOU... =)

Message from God:

"You have immeasurable potential. Just as a tiny seed can become a giant redwood tree, you have only scratched the surface of your potential. You have the creator of the universe on your team and you've been given the ball, so run with it. Run knowing that you have immeasurable potential."


I've been hearing this a lot from different people (who don't even know each other) lately... =)

As you all should know by now, I work at Dream Centre (behind Jaya 33) so as I was driving home from work yesterday evening, I saw many police cars and people in front of the building (http://twitpic.com/51ev6n) and I didn't know why. I just heard that it was due to a bomb scare! First, acid splasher lurking around my church on Sunday and then bomb scare behind my office yesterday? Is the world going mad?

Each kind of bird has a uniquely-shaped beak, wings, and even feather so that everything about it is perfect for the lifestyle it lives. The various wing shapes allow them to dart after a bug, soar miles above a field, or fly for months over the ocean. Just as God cares enough to give each bird exactly what it needs, so I have been given the exact talents and personality to live the life God has given me!

I had such a blast jamming with my boys last night. We went on for four hours! Looks like we'll be alright, after all... =) Our new drummer is such a sweetheart, we all adore him! ♥ He made us all bond again and we even came up with some sick funk grooves and guitar and bass riffs last night. I can't wait to fine-tune them into a bluesy, funky song! We're back, baby! 8-)


Now my voice is so husky and hoarse, I can probably sing 'The House of the Rising Sun' better than Haley Reinhart did on American Idol... ;P

I was shocked when Casey was voted out and when I found out that Haley is not in the Top 2, I started to wonder why the Americans voted out the only true artistes in the competition. I mean, it doesn't take a musical genius to see that Casey and Haley should have been the Top 2.


We need more bluesy, husky-voiced artiste like Haley. We don't need another Carrie Underwood/Taylor Swift artiste like Lauren, or another Keith Urban/Tim McGraw artiste like Scotty. I like country music but there are many good country artistes already. I want more artistes like Casey and Haley! =/

When a precious 5-year-old boy scratched his leg till it started bleeding profusely, the class teacher brought him to me, believing I could be the school nurse. I recovered quickly from the initial shock and focused on cleaning his wound properly, applying antiseptic and putting a bandage on it. Thank God I've always been good with kids so he calmed down and flashed me a sweet smile when he thanked me... ♥

Wishing For You



It often doesn't matter how it starts
The best things can happen with a gentle touch
I'm not ashamed to say, I would be more than okay
If by some chance you'd just ask me to stay

Do I see a twinkle of hope that's in your eyes?
When you smile it feels so right, it's no surprise
It's only you and I under the stars of tonight
Do we dare take it to where it feels right?

How do I see what's right for me?
Do I deny what's inside?

If I had wings I would fly
Lifting my soul to the skies
If I had nine lives to live
Wish I had you to be with
If I could make dreams come true
Of all the things I would do
I know that I would be wishing for you

Don't get me wrong, I don’t live a life of dreams
But sometimes it's easier for me
Why does it feel so right, believing it day and night?
Wishing that someday you might be with me

How do I see what's right for me?
Do I deny what's inside?

If I had wings I would fly
Lifting my soul to the skies
If I had nine lives to live
Wish I had you to be with
If I could make dreams come true
Of all the things I would do
I know that I would be wishing for you

Ohmygoodness. Half an hour ago, my bestie was watching Criminal Minds at home when she heard screams and noises, followed by faint sounds of frantic footsteps. Then she heard a loud thud. When she looked down the balcony, she saw a body lying on the ground.


She just told me that the Indian man is certified dead because the body is now covered and his wife is crying hysterically. How surreal for my bestie. It's like she's in an episode of Criminal Minds herself now... except that what happened was very real! *shudders* The unfortunate incident happened at Arena Green, Bukit Jalil.

You have no right to wish for more...

... until you fully appreciate what you already have. It's not the amount that matters, but the blessings you are able to receive from it. A slice of stale bread gives more to the beggar, than a new house to the rich. Everything you have has unending blessings for you hidden inside. Learn to receive them.

It's not New Year resolutions or big promises that make or break life; it's the innumerable small actions you take every hour that compound into a life well lived. Look at how you are living moment to moment to know whether at the end of your life you will be looking back with pride or sorrow.

You need to maintain a balance between your needs and others' needs. Yes, it's not an easy balance to keep, but try you must. Give too much, drain yourself, and there is nothing left only bitter space. Give too little, become a cork, and you block the flow of God's love through you. Keep on balancing.

I just bought a cute pencil case and some rock-chick hair clips for her so I texted my eldest brother (Lois' dad), saying, "I wonder if my cutie pie would like them." He replied, "She doesn't like to be called 'cute' anymore; it's 'pretty' now." She's such a vain pot!

Generosity Will Make You Rich

The best thing to do if you're feeling poor is to give something away. Give a few dollars to a homeless person, some clothes to a thrift store, or pay for the person behind you at the drive-through or toll. Instead of focusing on what you don't have, focus on what you DO have and how you can bless others with it. Being able to give is a Divine gift in itself.

I wonder why some people like to assume you're single when they never actually asked about your love life. You're taking your time to choose and yet these ignorant people would tell you, "Get to know more guys/girls!" It's fine they never made the effort to ask about your love life, but to assume you're NOT single by CHOICE is not only annoying; it's insulting. Seriously.


If these people were people who didn't know you well, you wouldn't blame them, right? But if they're people related to you and they THINK they "know" you when they actually don't, doesn't it tick you off?

I just got home! It was dead tiring, to be honest. It was a 9-hour outdoor shoot... but we had a blast! It was fun having the production crew with us (there were about 15 of them, I think) going to various locations to shoot, and having people assisting us, doing and fixing our hair and makeup, changing our outfits in a portable changing room... we felt like rockstars! Actually, we kinda are now... haha! It was so awesome to have onlookers taking videos and photos of us on locations, man! After the shoot, we were interviewed and it's gonna be aired on Channel 180 on Astro soon. I can't wait to watch our videos on Astro! ^_^

‎"Girls are like apples. The best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don't wanna reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along; the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree." - Pete Wentz

To everyone I know, and to everyone who knows me,

I don't usually post stuff like this, but there must be a reason why I was led to post this up for you to read. I believe that all of us are too distracted with the things in our lives to realise that the end is really near. Many of the signs written in the Bible have come to pass: the natural disasters, the wars, the lawlessness, the religious clashes... all the evil that seems to abound... they are just the beginning. So I believe God really wants us to be still, and listen to what He has to say.

This is a PDF file link:
https://acrobat.com/#d=-4nhgkjBKOsiABdUpm*ZpQ.

I urge you to click on it, save it in your computer, read it and then pass it on. You may believe it, you may be sceptical, but I urge you to at least read it through, and be prepared for the end nevertheless.

We often forget we don't live forever; not on earth, at least. But it really doesn't matter when we die; as long as we die with the assurance that we're going to be with the Lord. So if you were to die today, and you were standing before God at heaven's gates, and He asked you, "Why should I let you in?", what would you say?

Think about it.

Blessings!

I had lunch with mommy at Sushi Tei @ Tropicana City Mall today. It ain't as good as the food at Ishin... =|


I'll be using this Nokia X6 till I get my HTC Desire HD next week... =)

I lost count of the number of times I said, "WOW!" while watching Burlesque last night. I've always been a huge fan of Christina Aguilera and after last night, Christina is without a doubt the most beautiful white girl I've ever seen who has the most beautiful (black girl's) singing voice I've ever heard! Mad talent... MAD! I wanna watch it again!


Since Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore aka The Pop Princesses came out in the late '90s, Christina has been the only one who can actually sing. And who knew she could act too! WOW!

That Effing Show: #46 The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

And what a bloody massacre it was. JAKIM was on the prowl, raiding hotels, arresting folks for having... *gasps* dinner with each other, for declaring their undying love for one another. Nasrudin Hasan, the PAS youth chief got his 15 minutes of fame; his name appearing in AFP, The Huffington Post, and The New Zealand Herald.

In the spirit of "opening a can of whoop-ass", we're calling out Dato' Ustazah Siti Nor Bahyah for making up stuff about Valentine's Day, so we give a little history lesson of our own.

P.S. - No flowers or candy please, nanti masuk lokap.

At last night's Wii session with a friend and her hubby, I "won" a "tennis match" so now I can't wait to beat them again at "tennis", "bowling" and eventually... Super Mario Bros! ;P I wanna get a Wii soon... AFTER I've gotten a Samsung Galaxy Tab... ^_^

Yesterday, after watching Sini Ada Hantu (which was so good, I don't mind watching it again!) with bestie Gina Yap, we went shopping for clothes for her book cover photoshoot (yeah, she's not only a scriptwriter; she's an author too!) Anyway, that shopping trip got me wondering if I should get a new outfit for my upcoming music video shoot... hmmm...

Sometimes, you really don't realise how much you've missed some people until you see them again after a while. My bandmates and I had a rock-out jam session just now after a month of hiatus. Me lovey my boys! ♥

Your Divine Valentine

A Valentine may play a love song for you,
but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe:
"The Lord your God... will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
(Zephaniah 3:17)

A Valentine may give you flowers,
but God sent you the most beautiful Rose of all; Jesus:

"I am the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily of the valleys."
(Song of Solomon 2:1)

A Valentine may bring you chocolates,
but God provides you with something even sweeter; His Word:

"How sweet are Your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

(Psalm 119:103)

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime,
but God loved you before you were born
and will love you for all eternity:

"Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love...
with lovingkindness I have drawn you."

(Jeremiah 31:3)

The first Valentine message is still the best one ever sent:


The First Valentine
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

via Facebook

Joking aside, there really is no such thing as "Very Important People" and "not so important people" in a church. Why put labels when God wants us to worship together in church as one? The church is not supposed to be like high school, where "the popular and talented" are overshadowing "the low-profile".


Whilst you should acknowledge and encourage the talented, don't ever make the shy and reserved ones feel unimportant. Work on unleashing their potential instead.

I just received an email from the COO of Rock Unite saying that The Experibels has been confirmed by RTM Radio to be featured in the 3 music videos for RTM Muzik Aktif as per the 3 songs we submitted to them! Music video shoot will be on 6 March 2011, Sunday! Apparently, we'll be shooting against a green screen! Is this super cool or what?!

Okay, for the record, Harry Shum, Jr. AND Shia La Beouf are MINE. All MINE. Back off, Jasmine Moot-lei Kow... ;P Mike Chang!!! ♥

Big & Rich - Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace

video

I was raised by the Good Book
Learned to work hard every day
Taught that if you can't say something good
There's nothing good to say
And I caught on pretty early
It's no use to work no harder than you play
So I guess that's how I ended up this way

Chorus:
Somewhere between raising hell and amazing grace
Is a place I keep finding myself
Yeah, I get a lil' crazy tryina have a lil' fun
Then I end up back where I started from
Down on my knees, I pray
Oh Lord, let me see another day
Somewhere between raising hell and amazing grace

I give it everything I got
Tryina give more than I take
For heaven's sake, I keep on smiling
No matter what comes my way
And I may be passing out on Friday night
But come Sunday
I'll be passing the collection plate, yeah

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Yeah, I know I'm a sinner, but I've got faith
Oh, my good side is what He's gonna see
When I'm standing at them pearly gates
He'll have nothing but mercy for me

(Chorus)

Somewhere between raising hell and amazing grace

阿牛 - 至霖情歌



A friend of mine who barely knows Cantonese sang this song by Aniu 阿牛 at a mutual friend's wedding recently (so you can imagine the effort put in to make it good). I've always thought this song was cute but that was the first time I heard it sung at a wedding! Anyway, enjoy the song! (If you're not a fan of Aniu in one way or another, you're not a true Chinese-Malaysian! =P)

Inedible Japanese toy (modern version of Play-Doh?) for kids...

... but I think it's more suitable for adults who wanna relive their 'masak-masak' days!



Oh snap. I can't stop watching Konapun videos on YouTube. They're so addictive! >.< I wanna play 'masak-masak'!

Okay, now I'm really ticked off! At 3:22 of the video, you'll hear her claim that "berdisko, kelakuan maksiat and berkhalwat" are Christian traditions on Valentine's Day! We've been tolerant and gracious for so long even though you demolish our churches, persecute us, etc. but enough is enough! I'm so outraged!!!



I don't know why I'm still surprised. I guess I never knew there was THIS level of low... until now. Since when Valentine's Day is a Christian celebration??? How do statements like these on TV reflect One Malaysia, huh?! These "religious leaders" are imbecilic nincompoops!!!

Like what Anas Zubedy once told me, "Stupidity and bigotry come in all colours and creeds." No one talks about my God, my church, my people, my beliefs and my faith that way and expects to get away with it. NO ONE.

Get your facts right, Ustazah! It's not a "holy day" for us Christians! It's not a day that Christians actually celebrate in church. It ain't a Christian celebration per se hence I think we need to correct that impression. That Ustazah in the video says that V-Day is a day where Christians go to night clubs, engage in sexual misconduct and fornication hence Muslims are banned from celebrating this "sinful, traditional Christian celebration". C'mon!

It's good to advise our younger generation to live in purity. But putting down Christians and accusing us of things that ain't true is just disappointing. She says, "anak-anak, kena buat kajian sejarah" but her kajian (research) is not even done correctly. Why should anyone listen to her then?

The feeling of holding baby Isaac (my four-month-old nephew) in my arms, kissing his forehead and his chubby cheeks, singing him a lullaby, stroking his lil' arm with my fingertips, and his smiling at me with his huge, gorgeous eyes right before he falls asleep in my arms is indescribable. My maternal instincts just come to surface and it's such a beautiful feeling! I can't wait to be a mother! ;P

The first week of Chinese New Year is usually spent with my family (immediate and extended) because my bhanders, babes, homeboys and my other homegirls are either back in their respective hometowns for at least a week, or they're busy celebrating with their families here. So I only get to see them next week... =/ I miss my bhanders the most! ♥ Plus Julia Moh and Sacha Dhanaraj! ♥♥

I ♥ Chinese New Year because the family get-togethers are always full of love, warmth, jokes and laughter. I ♥ being with my siblings and the cousins I grew up with because we always reminisce about the funny things we did as kids. I ♥ singing and playing with my nieces (and my newborn nephew!) because their cuteness and innocence bring me so much joy and laughter. I ♥ my family -- immediate and extended! ^_^

Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart



[Funny or Die]: Somebody did a literal (funnier) version of the original Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' music video and they showed this at the MACC (Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians) show last week at PJ Live Arts. Enjoy! ;)

Last Saturday, Vicky Ng, Jasmine Moot-lei Kow and I were so hungry by the time we braved through the jam at LDP and reached Euro Deli @ Damansara Kim, we had a total pig-out session. Literally.


There was so much pork at our table that - according to Vicky - it was probably some third-world country's half a year's supply of meat. For the record, I wasn't the one who ordered... =P Now I can't look at another sausage without gagging.

I saw a commercial on Asian Food Channel and I was surprised to know that Chef Wan is the father of actress Serina Redzuawan. I asked my mom, "Did you know Chef Wan had a daughter??? I always thought he was... you know... *shrugs*" My mom replied (verbatim), "Just because he can cook, it doesn't mean he's gay." Of course not, mommy. That wasn't the reason why I thought he was queer! -_-"
