Browsing at an array of books in a bookstore at Changi airport’s departure hall, Crazy Rich Asians caught my eyes. When I glanced at the author’s name, immediately I thought about my blogger friend Mabel Kwong who blogs about culture and aspires to write and publish a book.  Indeed even the last name of the author sounded so Mabel like.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan accompanied me on my eleven hour flight home.

Mabel just posted today about ‘How to make your dreams come true’. One of her dreams is to write and publish a book about what it means to be Asian Australia. This Asian Australian blog was featured in a national print and online magazine and reached 200,000 views.  An international ‘best seller’ already in the bloggers’ world and an author in the making.

The debut novel, Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan became one of…

My favourite Song

This song is my favourite because it gives me a sense of calmness and a feeling of salvation everytime I listen to it.

I especially love it when the sound of my favourite group and their music engulfed me.

Westlife, you are the channel from the above that reminds me that there is still a God when I often thought I was all alone.

You Raise Me Up
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary,
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up to more than I can be.

Waiting in anticipation

The year is drawing to a close soon.

My free blog space on Little Girl Story is running low, so low that I have only under 2% of free space left.

I recently started a sequel blog at Little Borneo Girl which is still waiting in anticipation for followers.  Very soon, I may no longer be able to blog through Little Girl Story (without having to migrate to my own domain) which may take time, cost and efforts.  So hoping to do away with frustrations and technical clichés or my lack of know-how,  I have taken the easy way out to start another free blog.

In the meantime,  please click here to follow Little Borneo Girl.

While Little Borneo Girl waits for followers, the world waits in anticipation for the festive season and a new year with new beginnings.

Merry Christmas from New Zealand !

Harmony – Mahana

mahana

It’s Saturday night.

I’ve just been home after a huge late night dinner.

Earlier in the cinema, shedding tears with the stars

in our local production of the Maori film Mahana.

Highly recommended family drama of two rural families

and the story behind their rivalry.

In tune with the stars, harmony.

 


“The combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords having a pleasing effect; the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.”

Wordless Wednesday – Human Christmas Tree

It is simply Wordless Wednesday.

You don’t need to understand the commentary.

Just watch the stunning acrobats,

the lights and moves of the performers

creating a human Christmas Tree.

Absolutely incredible, Wordless Wednesday.

 

Thanksgiving and love to the world

As Christmas approaches, it is the time of the year to be thankful for all the blessings shown to each and every one of us….. blessings that we are alive and well and thank you for the world we live in and all the little children that make the world a meaningful place to be.

Blessings to each and every sleeping child.

To believe

Easter is God’s mulligan to humanity.

We have just celebrated another Easter to mark the most significant event in human history: the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Today, Christians look back on these events not to relive the grief, sadness and morbidity, but to renew our commitment to living on a higher plane, the one Jesus challenged us to live on.

We recognize the cross as a symbol of God’s love, but historically it was an instrument of torture devised by the Greeks and Romans to prolong the death of those deemed guilty of crimes against the state.  Since Jesus was guilty of no such thing, the cross had to have a higher meaning — one that could hold the hope of humanity.

– extracted from The meaning of Easter and the Cross by David D. Ireland, Fox News –

On Holy Saturday, we met up at a friend’s house for potluck (bring-a-dish) dinner.  The food was so delicious, the company was great.  My friend shared this song with us.  The words are indeed inspirational and beautiful, sung by such talented young singer, Jackie Evancho.

To Believe 

“To Believe” was written by Evancho, Matthew David.

Jackie Evancho – To Believe Lyrics
Before I lay me down to rest
I ask the Lord one small request
I know I have all I could need
But this prayer is not for me

Too many people on this day
Don’t have a peaceful place to stay
Let all fighting cease that your children may see peace
Wipe their tears of sorrow away

To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear each cry and listen to each prayer

Let me try always to believe
That we can hear the hearts that grieve
Please help us not ignore
The anguished cries of the poor
Or their pain will never leave

To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear their cries and listen to each prayer

Father, as you see, I’m just a child
And there’s so much to understand
But if Your Grace should surround me
Then I’ll do the best I can
I promise, I’ll do the very best I can

To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear each cry and listen to each
Prayer {Hear each cry and listen to each prayer}

Help us do Your will Your Father
In the name of all that’s true
And we’ll see in one another
The loving image of You
