The Global Day of Prayer - Last day:
One Event, 31 May 09 @ 7 pm @ Penang Christian Centre (PCC)

It's my usual van driving day.
Since it was a lesser-crowd, we only needed 2 vans and I told the other driver:
"Hooray... I can go home and don't need to drive"

But, somewhat, I just went upstairs to Shalom Hall to see what it has got for me.
Just the day before during service, one of my church member asked me to go there to pray for the issues in my work place.

As I walked into the room, i see 'harp and bowl'.
What is that??
Just learnt a new term from wikipedia, which is derived from Rev 5:8 - a type of worship.
Harp represents the music and the bowl symbolizes our prayer.

8And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

So, the Lord really revealed himself tonight.
God's presence was strong and powerful.

I did not get the 3rd point from the speaker, April, but got the 2 points:
1. God is on our side
- justice happens only through Jesus and God wants us to set apart to be a standard of righteousness, eg. at my workplace.

I have always seen unfairness treated among the different people of different teams.
I have always seen favouristism.
I have always seen how ass-kissers never get into trouble.

But, today, I realised that all these do not matter at all.
Because God is just.
If nobody at my workplace is on my side, GOD is on MY SIDE.
I once believe that God is my true employer. And he'd be fair.

2. God is righteous and Just
Sickness is injustice.
Healing is justice.
Abortion is not right in the eyes of GOD because everything that God made is GOOD stuff, including me.. :)

and another point was..
when doubt falls, our faith rises.....
I should stop my doubts, worries, else my faith would not rise.......
I should trust God's never-ending love for me, and stop relying love from others.
I have to start to receive God's love, and stop searching my heart somewhere else..

Wah.. suddenly so holy pula. Beh tahan. Many times we do not understand the situations we are in, but end of the day, when we depend on Him, our faith rises, our relationship with Him improve and we are Victors! Man gives selfish love and GOD's love is never-ending.

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

 Our lunch spread :)

First trip of the year 2016 -- Hatyai

Following the previous day trip to Dannok, I finally had a short vacation in Hatyai, This is probably one of my many trips to Hatyai, but this time, I didn't really spend a lot of time around Lee Gardens Hotel area.

I've never really blogged on the details of my journey to Hatyai, so here it is...


Going through the immigration is much easier compared to the immigration at the airport. In the past, I have always gotten the immigration form (They call it the 'white card') from the money changers at Changloon. In fact, it is easily accessible at the immigration office on the left hand side. Parking is also easy and free while awaiting for our passports to be stamped.


Danok is always famous for pork leg rice. So here it is. I love the sweet and sour chilies.


The chicken kuih chiap along the way. It tasted like bak kut teh compared to the normal kueh chiap dish.


After lunch, i finally managed to checked in to Wungnoy Hotel. I would recommend this hotel, as it felt more like…
