something in September


I just want to take this opportunity to announce that in September, I am planning to release some special tracks. 

These songs were actually recorded when I was still in KL. I did not immediately release them because I was playing with thoughts of what to do with it but now, I feel the time has come for the world to listen to them. Details on how I am releasing it, well, I am still looking into it and as time passes on, I hope to have a firm answer for it. It could come in a form of just singles or an online EP. So yea, speaking with faith here on the release.

These songs will mark the 5th anniversary of my 1st album release so I guess that tells you when it is out. At the same time, it's my way to thank you everyone for your never-ending support and love towards my solo project.

I said it many many times, that doing this has never been easy. Sometimes I feel like throwing the towel but by the grace of God, I am still doing music. Your encouragement time and time again reminds me not to take this opportunity lightly. I am also reminded at the end of the day, these songs are not about me but about Him. It's not by my own might but by His strength I am doing this and living life.

With that, I hoping these songs will be a testimonial of God's goodness to all of you. I pray these songs will be a blessing to you all and can't wait to let you guys hear it.

More to come. Till then, much love.

PS : Thank you for reading this long status!

More songs to come...

Time and time again.. God convict and remind me about song writing.

Humanly speaking, I admit I been busy and lazy. Two biggest partners in dragging my song writing a little long than usual. Sometimes I also asked myself what to do with these songs. So many questions.

Recently I watched a video of my performance during MGM 2013 and it moved me. I was reminded that by God's grace I was on that stage singing. Not by my might, but God's strength.

Usually I cringed seeing myself singing and hearing myself. But that video moved me.

And I realized every song I wrote, is never about me. It's about God.

That's why those songs on that video written by me spoke to me and broke my heart. It feels God spoke to that person (which is me) to remind me that He is still in the game of watching over me.

I am not saying this to "sell" my albums, but I learn these songs are from Him and I should trust Him to see how these songs will go.

So.. back to song writing.... time to get serious about it.. somehow...

With that, oh yea, wanted to announce that in September, planning to release 2 special tracks that I recorded in KL. These songs will mark the 5th anniversary of my 1st album release, at the same time, to thank you guys for your never-ending support to my solo project. I said it many many times, that doing this has never been easy. I feel like giving up but by the grace of God, I am still doing so. Hope these songs will be a blessing to you all and can't wait to let you guys hear it.

Alright. Hope to share more later

2014 birthday wish...

Thank you all for making this year’s birthday fun and awesome.

I suddenly wished everyday it's my birthday.. because you all have made it awesome in your own beautiful ways.

I am not sure why FB notified you all a day earlier about my birthday so on the eve of birthday, I already received so many wishes. 

Anyway, I appreciate your wishes a lot and it means to me, that’s why I take the effort to reply each one of you. It always that time of the year where I received lots of messages on various platform.

Thanks for the cakes as well. Love them!

So many people to thank... so one big love to you all!

Prior to my birthday, I admit I struggle with the questions of what is next for me. The thing about living life with God, it’s always an adventure. The more I asked sometimes, the more I find myself trusting in God. That’s what has been driving me on. That’s what has made my life interesting over the past few months.

Recently I was with a wise man and he was asked a question by a friend of mine about what he thinks about life and the things that happening in the world. He just simply answered “without God, we are just hopeless”. 

Simple yet profound.

True, without Him, our life is a mess. Look at the world today, we can say all we want about every issues out there, but truth to be told, we need God. That’s the bottomline.

There’s so many negativity out there… especially here on social media honestly. Sometimes it saddens me to read how much “pain” you guys going through whether in schools, relationships, work or life. I want to say no matter who you are, believe me that you are actually better than the circumstance. Don’t waste your energy on negativity, it’s never worth it. Things come and go, including negativity. We just need to be positive and persevere. We cannot be perfect.. yup.. I will make mistakes and do things that I regret but life is a never ending lesson.

That’s my birthday wish for you all. Each one of you can make a difference in the world. You don’t need to be like Bono or Mother Teresa-que figure to be a difference. Just be who you are. Be that shining light in your home, schools, office and nation.

Again, let me say....

Can't resist using his face. Sorry Mr and Mrs Sio Yean but your son's expression is just priceless.

Much love.

being stamp

After leading worship, i came off stage and saw this on my hand. A moment in time.

Of course, now my hand don't have that mark.

But that time, it just struck me. My shirt button was having a different pattern. Was wondering where I got that.

It feels as though God has stamp His mark on me. God is telling me like I belong to Him and at the same time was reminded of Isaiah 61.

Tell me the old old story HYMN

Tell me the old, old story,
  Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
  Of Jesus and His love;
Tell me the story simply,
  As to a little child,
For I am weak and weary,
  And helpless and defiled. 

    Tell me the old, old story,
    Tell me the old, old story,
    Tell me the old, old story,
        Of Jesus and His love. 

Tell me the story slowly,
  That I may take it in--
That wonderful redemption,
  God's remedy for sin;
Tell me the story often,
  For I forget so soon,
The "early dew" of morning
  Has passed away at noon. 

Tell me the story softly,
  With earnest tones and grave;
Remember I'm the sinner
  Whom Jesus came to save;
Tell me the story always,
  If you would really be,
In any time of trouble,
  A comforter to me. 

Tell me the same old story,
  When you have cause to fear
That this world's empty glory
  Is costing me too dear;
And when the Lord's bright glory
  Is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the old, old story:
  "Christ Jesus makes thee whole."
