Inspector Singh-Written By Shamini Flint

I finished reading this book in a matter of few days.... A Deadly Cambodian Crime Spree is very well written by Shamini Flint...
Where there is horror of the crimes written, there is also a space where humour was found, a character namely Inspector Singh. The way Shmini wrote about him, he portrays a real person in my mind, what he thinks and says, they are very familiar to my imagination. Love the humour there!
But on the other hand, the sorrows and frustration felt by the Cambodians are very touching.... we who are not staying or living there, we should count ourselves many times blessed... the horrors and the tortures the civilians have to go through, I guess no one can imagine how terrifying it really was during the killing fields tragedy....
The ending was quite a surprise to me... I never thought... never expect that he is the one....Great Work, Shamini!!

MSF Anniversary Night

Last night there was a special occasion in Methodist Church, it was the 16th Anniversary for the MSF,(Methodist Senior Fellowship)... I am not a member yet, don't know when I will be... anytime now cos I am already eligible to be called a Senior.... ahem....

Cell leader sms-ed me and it sounded kind of desperate... to seek help for a guitarist... last minute, I didn't practise much and here I was, playing my heart out but I know I didn't do very well... my fingers were hurting too much that the chords didnt come out perfectly... sigh..

One side of me says... well, hope they forget me soon! After the buffet, I left quietly....

didnt know there were such a turnout...

the stage where we played..

A Deadly Cambodian Crime Spree

Many Thanks to Shamini Flint! She sent me this book upon request... gosh, this is the first time I read her books, looking at the title is interesting enough. I post this up today because I am going to read it in a short while. And when I finished reading it, I will post up the review. Meanwhile I am going to savour every word in this book... cos I love to read anything criminal and of law and order....

Thanks, Shamini for giving me an opportunity to have a first hand on this book specially delivered to my doorstep... :)

Heed Advice Before Consumption

Nowadays people are very health conscious, they are more careful in their daily food intake. They are more knowledgeable now compared to our ancestor's days, with the Internet, we can get whatever information we need just by a few clicks away. With today's technology and medical advanced research, we can now just pop ourselves with health supplements as well. But on the other hand, we must be careful in what we take and pump into our bodies. We must study the pro and cons of whatever pills we are taking. It is always advisable to seek the right professional staff before consuming any new types of tablets, for the young and old, it is equally important to consult doctors and pharmacists. Study the leaflets for any side effects, especially for pregnant mothers, it is very risky to consume any kind of pills without the doctor's advice, it might lead to Topamax class action lawsuit if one is not careful with what he/she is taking.

What Did He Do?

What Would He do Or What did He do?

I am feeling kind of dry these days, “dry” not in the sense of dry skin or thirsty for water, but instead I am dry in the sense of my spiritual strength. I feel lost when I think of God, it seems that I have not come to hear words from Him (in church). Thinking back, it has been two weeks since I last went to church, only two weeks but I feel I am lost in a way.

Reading Corinthians 15 in the Bible and relating to the Daily Bread, the question here asked “What would Jesus do?” When we are faced with difficult circumstances, we should ask ourselves WWJD… but did we ever ask ourselves, What did Jesus do?

Back to my first para, I guess I have to go church this week before I “shrivel” without proper food and water. What did Jesus do when He came across such a lazy child here? Ouch!!

A Conversation With God

A conversation with God, a book where you can get some enlightening answers.
If I could ask God one question, what would it be? I have thought about it and I felt rather guilty actually. One question is definitely not enough, I have endless questions to ask God but one important one is .... what does He have in store for each one of us?
This book might be able to help us find some answers that you want to know. It helps to enlighten many of the most commonly asked questions...
I do not know what God's plans are us, I admit I am not a filial child of God, in fact, I sway much, I backslide too, the worldly things tempts me a lot. But if I could, I would like to ask God to furiously guide me, not allowing me to backslide, pick me up when I fall, turn me away from temptations and not allowing me to make my own decisions...
God, will you turn my life to what Your Purpose You have for me?
