The Story


“I remember I was at this weird place in life, in college… I mean college is a weird time. It’s that transition, and there’s always a girl involved, and there’s always the whole life story, of what am I going to do with the rest my life involved. And I’m driving down this mountain late at night and the moon is pretty much the only other light, other than the headlights, and it’s this windy road and I’m coming back down to San Diego and I’m listening to James Taylor… and that one moment, for me, was a defining moment. Because I mean, I’ve been to a James Taylor concert and I felt super out of place, so it wasn’t so much the idea that these are songs I’ve heard on the radio and everyone knows them. Sometimes that song that you’ve heard a lot of times it just somehow grabs you, and that was kind of a moment for me.”

Jon Foreman of Switchfoot

In the midst of Friends.
Voicing out should have, maybes, could haves.

In the midst of Lover,
Speaking on love, spectacular feats, broken promises.

In the midst of Brothers,
being reminded of holding on, going strong, brotherhood.

In the midst of Sisters,
talking about encouragements, not giving up, breaking through.

In the midst of laughter, tears and hope.
I saw people, learning to breathe again.
Learning how to die, learning how to see, learning how to trust once again.

In the midst of it all, stood a man.
and you, through passing on. Defined a moment.
Defined what it is to live. what it is to be alive.

In the midst of it all.
i saw a hope through your eyes. a hope to change the world.

and you did.

In Loving Memory of Joash Wee

He breathe his last.

Final string of fire pulsing through his veins.

The heart beats for the final time.

People around him wept.

Father sits at the edge of His throne.

Only heaven knows why.

The life he left behind.

Could be the only cure for the pain.

In the Loving memory of Joash Wee.

To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.

Kofi Annan


Give me something brighter, Give me something I can see
Give me something vicious, Give me something I can be
Give me all the love and peace to end these wars
Give me something sacred, something worth fighting for

.. Show me something gorgeous, show me till my eyes get tired.

-These Hard Time
Need to Breathe.

I’ve seen it, keep on showing me Lord.

The bride was stunning, the bridegroom beaming
yes, another couple in Acts tied the knot last Saturday.

Congrats again to Alvin Keng and Jessica chan, which is now. a Keng as well. heh.

I remembered Alvin was talking to me about this.

It would be so cool if we could play soundtracks through the wedding, during the ceremony and all.

Soundtracks. heh
who knew that music could play such a big part in huge events in our lives? it’s so “behind the scenes” but “in your face” at the same time.
Never thought about that before.

Unknowingly people “Insert sound tracks” into stuff/events/people
when you listen to certain music, hum to a tune. you’ll tend to relate or think about a certain event or even person.
Pretty cool term to say that, we are compiling soundtracks of our life constantly.

ah well, it’s just a thought there. yeah i know random.
well.

A huge congrats again to Alvin and Jess! heres to this new amazing soundtrack both of you guys are writing now!

18 “There are three things that are too amazing for me, 
       four that I do not understand:

 19 the way of an eagle in the sky, 
       the way of a snake on a rock, 
       the way of a ship on the high seas, 
       and the way of a man with a maiden.

– Proverbs 30:18-19

Which led me to..

1 We can make our own plans,
      but the Lord gives the right answer.

 2 People may be pure in their own eyes,
      but the Lord examines their motives.

 3 Commit your actions to the Lord,
      and your plans will succeed.

 4 The Lord has made everything for his own purposes,
      even the wicked for a day of disaster.

– Proverbs 16:1-4

then it came peace and assurance.
things i don’t understand.

perhaps one day I’ll understand.

Another casualty of casual love, Another soul out-of-place, a heart that gave up
Why do we break the promises we make? Are we living for ourselves?

With teary eyes, she sat on the floor.
having to pick up the pieces, having to mend the tiny holes.
You can see she is tired.

Why should it take losing everything to realize it might be time to change?

yes, he decided to leave. not a word.
and he told her “we’ll be together always”, the promise ring on her finger was trying to shine.
but it can’t.

and we sat there, hearing her heart.
I wished she din’t get into this, i wished she was stronger. I wished this din’t have to happen.

all in all, he ran away.
He ran away and we have here.
a girl with a broken heart.

Your restless heart won’t win ’cause you take but you don’t give
And you’ll keep moving on until you learn what love is

and so it is, you will never win. how you promised and how you left her.
I thought that she was worth fighting for, but you din’t, you ran away.
you said it was different this time, now she can’t trust what anyone has to say.

you are still my friend

and i thought that she’d never end up like this with you, and she did.
please be sure the next round? cause it really breaks me and even all her friends around her.

Another casualty of casual love

She picks up the pieces, looks up. presses on.
stay strong you, I said stay strong.

Lyrics by Sanctus Real, Don’t give up

Views great, how are you getting there?

He asked me.
