Moving along towards 2013

"Quiet, seems like an honest world
You're begging for the baker's bread
When the money's out, stand, climb, and fall
You carry the world, can't carry your hope

When the world is falling down
And another breaks and another falls
For losers always make the winner's day
Stand, climb, and fall, you carry the weight, can't carry it all..."

1,2,1,2, testing, 1,2.


Everyone is excited as it's 12-12-12,
Wishing everyone the best in health,
As others continue chasing wealth,
Acting like they are twelve.

Some say 21st is when all will end
But what if it is just misread intend
As upcoming and future trends
Can, at last, finally began

Sometimes, I wish I was the one who had died 14 years ago. Not my mom, but me- to suffer from cancer and die. This thought occurs every now and then.

Life is unfair, but God is good.

But I believe that things happen for a reason, and while a new live is born, another kicks the bucket and another continues living, each one has a role to play in impacting the lives of the people around them. Ultimately, it's God's plan- in which we cannot see or even begin to fathom about.

So, I've lived half my life without her. I miss her kindness, I miss her smile, her creativity, her wisdom, her love and how much she would sacrifice for my brothers and I.

I really miss my Mom. But I keep her in my memories. And with this memories, I want to move forward.

Perhaps she had made a deal with Death to spare her children as she takes the bullet. Who knows?

But one thing for sure is since I am living, I want to do my best, as much as I can - because God is good, and there is so much worth living for.



"Hello, good morning, how you do?
What makes your rising sun so new?
I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new
So this is the way that I say I need You
This is the way that I'm

Learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that You and You alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies..."

Through the emptiness

No one likes it. Neither do I.

But being in the bottom pit, and going through it alone could possibily be the worst feeling ever - mayb worst than death itself.

But I believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel; that this will pass soon. Till then, it's time to endure it n trust God.



"... We live a dying dream
If you know what I mean
All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known

Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling Him in and out of nowhere
Said if You won't save me, please don't waste my time..."

SOPA in Malaysia?

Just as I was about to get back to blogging, something popped up- 114A.

What is it? It's somewhat like Malaysia's version of SOPA.

"Section 114a is a new amendment to the Evidence Act 1950 that was passed in parliament without debate in April 2012. The section is called “Presumption of fact in publication”. It states that any owner, admin, host, editor, subscriber of a network or website, or owner of computer or mobile device is presumed to have published or re-published its contents." - CIJ

Well, the Center of Independent Journalism (CIJ)is calling for an Internet blackout on Aug14, and u can read more here - http://www.thesundaily.my/news/458813

Well, looks like we gotta make a move....

Feeling overload

Of late, I'm overcomed by emotions, many of which has brought me to dark places, anger, frustration or just plain depression. But many of times, there are joyful times and happy times- which wants me to just jump up n shout of wonderful life is. Indeed it is our prerogative to post whatever we want, whenever we want and for who we want to read our thoughts. But even I believe such freedom has its boundaries. I have a friend who had posted many crude, nasty posting on Facebook about the company that she's leaving. As much as the company has been unkind to her (to which I partly agree), I personally believe she shouldn't run down individuals, including bosses by name and curse them openly for all to see. Could she be sued for defamation? I don't see why not? For me, I'm just posting up my thoughts, information, pictures and news of the day. And I believe it should not be one where it pulls others down badly and their expense. So, I'm penning down pent-up frustration in this blog, or wait for it to cool down till it is not worth writing about. After all, like stated in the bible, all things are permissible, but not all things are benefittal. "Please could you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest, From all the unborn chicken voices in my head, What's that...? (I may be paranoid, but not an android) What's that...?

Alive today

Sometimes, we take it for granted. But to be able to wake up daily is indeed a blessing that we should thank God for. It's another day to live for, another opportunity to praise God and another day to impact your world. All glory to God for this life He gave me! "Everyday is a new day I'm thankful for every breath I take I won't take it for granted So I learn from my mistakes It's beyond my control Sometimes it's best to let go Whatever happens in this lifetime So I trust in love You have given me peace of mind I, I feel so alive For the very first time I can't deny you I feel so alive I, I feel so alive For the very first time And I think I can fly..."

Ohana in my new Crib

My family's up here this year.

Instead of me going down to Kuala Lumpur to celebrate Chinese New Year with the family; my dad decided that the family would come up to Penang instead.

And it's good to be able to celebrate with my family in my new home here.

I indeed count myself blessed to have a place of my own here on the island which I can call home.

Just last week, this simple house I have was opened the place for house dedication, and had close friends and colleagues over for house warming.

The view from the balcony of my place. It's peaceful just to stand and watch the world passes by as the sea breezes gets into your face.


And I'm happy and blessed to have my family bring up things to spruce up my little home (after all, it's a home for them as well.)

My place in the midst of being 'pimped-up'n with things my family from KL.


And I've promised to open my house, Two Copper, for church, as I would want to open this place as a blessing to others as how this unit was a blessing from God to me.

All glory to God. And a Happy Chinese New Year to all, as you spend time with loved ones, family and friends.

Counting blessings

Briefly, there are a few things in my life that I have to thank God for, which includes:

- being able to own a place I can call home,

- having money in the bank to pay for my daily expenses,

- to have food and drinks to sustain me and keep my taste palate occupied,

- for bringing my dad through a health ordeal where he was hospitalised for severe diarrhoea,

- for great family and awesome friends who supports and guides me.

And I consider myself blessed to have these few things happening in my life.

Thank you God!

Move Along... let's move into 2012

How did 2012 started off for me? I wouldn't say it was good, but I don't find it 1 bit mundane.

For some of my close friends, things seem to be gloomy and uncertain, while others are putting in their all in their lives.

As for me, I got into an accident.


Werb Boom Boom damaged.

Yes, it was my fault, and I was responsible for hitting the van.

But fortunately, I had friends to help me out. With a manual transmission Kelisa to get around work, and it was great that the repair fee was within my budget. *phew*


Werb Boom Boom repaired - like it never happened.


Anyway, I also read from Proverbs 1:7, that 'the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.'

And I want to start my life with God, b more disciplined and focus.

And I'm looking forward with excitement and anticipation of what 2012 has to offer.


"...Speak to me
When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along..."

Leaping from one year to 2011

How has 2011 treated the world? Check out this cool video clip see how the world has gone by.



What has 2011 been for me, on the other hand?

Like i mentioned in the previous post, it has been a great year.

One of the most damning thing that every happened in my life occurred this year, when both my fiancee and i decided to call off both the engagement and the relationship for both our own good. As much as i wanted to continue it, it's best discontinued and buried.

After all, if a girl can't see herself being happy and needs her freedom, why make her lie to herself everyday?

And honestly, it was one of the good things that had happened in my life. Like gold going through the hot furnace, it will only come out better; refined and renewed.

Through this hard times, support and love came in the form of my family and friends, and for the past four months, i managed to pick up most of the pieces of my life back. Plus, i got myself a new apartment unit on the island!

And did i learn a lot, including depending and putting faith in God, and learning to get priorities in life right.

Well, what do i want for 2012?

Honestly, I was thinking of asking God for the next woman to come into my life; the future Mrs Cheah, who is not only loving and God-fearing, but is committed, caring, understanding and submissive - the Proverbs 31 wife.

But then again, i think that's something very selfish.

So, what i want in 2012 is to be a better man. In no sequential order, i want to be more healthy, responsible, Christ-like, organised, understanding, prudence and awesome, and less of a control-freak, childish and lazy.

There is a long way to go, but by mapping out the goals, it is no mere dream.

And to all those who aspire a better tomorrow (literally), here's to a great 2012. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I can say it... it's better.

The year 2011 is coming to an end, as the people usher in the new year. Am i excited? Why shouldn't i?

Few weeks back, i posted something on Facebook, stating that i couldn't say that '2011 was an awesome year for me' with a straight face, with what has happened to me a few months ago.

But then again, i was proven wrong - it is indeed wrong.

I realised that through these trying times, people were out there for me; both family and friends, and sometimes unexpected ones that i come across. And through their encouragement, time spent with them and support, i found glimpse of God and love through them.

So, what does 2011 mean to me? It's a great year, and i expect greater things to come in the next couple of years.

All glory to God!~

Love for all.

Few weeks ago, I remember listening this quote over d radio, which goes something like this;

"No matter what you have done or not done, you are worthy of love."

This line is meaningful and true, and has become one of the things I hold on dearly in life, and I hope it brings a glimmer of hope in your life as well.

Mom, I would give anything to have a simple lunch with you in Ampang, like we use to do when I was in primary school.

I wouldn't mind walking along Tasik Titiwangsa with you in the evening.

I wish to spent a day just talking to you, updating my life and listening to your life story and advices.

I miss you and love you, Mummy....

Awesome weekend it was!

Last weekend was 1 of d happiest (and eventful) weekends I had in a long time.

I returned to Kuala Lumpur again (since the week before), this time to meet my family, friends and colleagues.

The main purpose was to attend David and Dewgem's wedding dinner at Tropicana Golf Club on Saturday, and I got the chance to meet up with the couple and Baby G, as well as catch up with Justin Tan, Bernard Yee, Eunice, Amanda, Sui Li, Tan Jo-Anne and Jessica as well as Eu Wah, my former coursemate back in UTAR.

The wine and fellowship was good, and I like the simple, yet touching ceremony.

David and Dewgem Heng cutting the wedding cake!

On Sunday, I had the chance to meet up with my former cell group members, as well as church members in Revival Centre in Ampang. It was a bonus to celebrate Justin's and Joey's birthday at KFC in Bandar Baru Ampang.


Justin and Joey, moments before making a wish and blowing the cake.


The journey with my almost defunct Proton Saga was trechrous, but I manage to put on and meet my bosses and colleagues in the main offices in PJ. It was great to see old faces as well as new.

To top it all up, spending time with my parents and Rowen and Ernest was a gem too, and I hope to come dowm more often, if I can.


dinner with family along Jalan Pahang.

There is so much more for me to live for. I know.
