From the Pearl Of The Orient...

Im back in penang...been a week plus.


Im actually back here for good...after almost 6 years away. Things have changed quite a bit...externally, my parents are older. Dad retired 2 days ago and sis is now taller than me. But I supposed the change most, is not what is external...but the change within my heart. A heart that yearned to stay away as much as possible from my home, a heart that wouldn't want to return home if given a choice...has now decided to come home because the heart has learnt much over the years - that no matter how broken a family is, it's still family. A heart that knows how important it is to be by your parents after going through the deaths of 2 grandparents...but still maybe this heart may fail at times. Prayers needed to keep it strong ;)


Will start work after Raya, haven't decided on a church, visiting a few in mind first. So life's a bit sien at times but it's great spending time with family although I travel between 2 places everyday as Im staying with my aunt for now, temporary arrangement.


Great news..mom's been going to church although I think she is just attending and most times, does not understand the sermons. But its a great start and dad didn't make a fuss at all. Sis is slowly expressing interest in attending church too but still a bit reserved, unless she feels comfortable with friends around. After all, she's only 14...


My journey in penang has began, although on a slow pace for now. There are times I miss the 'family' i had in KL but those times, they always remain a sweet memory and encouraged me of how faithful God has been. The journey here is diffreent altogether but I believe, my God is the same faithful God

Hey you've got a great blog here, the best I've seen so far, keep up the good job! A few days ago I was surfing the web and came across this cool site on Payday loans online. It features all sorts of interesting information on Payday loans online and makes it super easy to apply online. Now I know that people want fast services I recommend they visit Payday loans online for quick and hassle-free service.
