Gone in a second!

Now I have blur vision. My pair of glasses is a complete wreak after Hooi stepped on it accidentally. Well, its my fault for puting it on the floor beside a foam mattress while trying to play catch up with sleep.

I went to see my optometrist in Yik Fong as soon as possible. I had to, otherwise, I will not be able to blog any longer because of eyestrain. This optometrist always give a very thorough checkup for my eyes. So he will ask if I can see the last line or the second last. Then he will check for clarity with green and red light etc, etc. Finally its done.

Next I was given a wide variety of frames to choose from. Well, you should see my choice the next time we meet and I am sure you will be impressed. And FINALLY the cost. Pheeeew you cannot believe this. A whooping RM 1650.00. Who says our inflation is only 4.00%!!

A final word. Never place your spectacles on the floor even if you think no one will walk this or that way.

CCM - Fund Raising Dinner

I attended the Council of Churches of Malaysia fund raising dinner held in the Excelsior Hotel on 24th June 2006. Certainly the event was an eye opener as to what CCM is all about. Our pastor, Rev. Ashok is the Chairman of the CCM Perak Regional Committee and he gave a speech that night.

The food was delicious and we were entertained with songs and dances by members of the Methodist Sengoi Mission and the Tamil Methodist Church. There were also speeches from Rev. Bah Saha (Chairman of the Hal Ehwal Bumiputra Indigenous) and Rev. Bah Uda (Superintendent of Sengoi Mission Conference). Bishop Julius Paul presented hampers to the special guests from the Methodist Sengoi Mission conference, Protestant Church in Sabah, Good Shepherd Home and the Salvation Army. Rev. Dr. Hermen Shastri (General Secretary CCM) thanked the guests for their donations and closed the function.

Central to the CCM work is MISSION. It has taken upon itself the task of co-operative mission work with the indigenous churches in Malaysia. For more information you may wish to visit the CCM website at www.ccmalaysia.org

Tomang Satay in Jakarta

Arrived in Jakarta on Sunday for a week of business meetings & workshops. Met up with FF & WH last nite in Jakarta. Had typical Indo food and of course a heavy dosage of yakityyak...... Thanks NL for buying dinner.

## BTW....Tomang Satay is the name of the restaurant and as typical with many Indo restaurants, it is without ceiling fans even for the non-air condition sections....strange. Have asked my Indo colleagues and one of them mentioned something about masuk angin.

Birth of Matthew

Praise the Lord. My little baby boy was delivered by LSCS on Friday morning. Dr. Ng NK and Dr. Yee MK performed the operation in Fatimah Hospital. Everything went on smoothly except that Hooi loss a fair bit of blood and was given an extra dose of medication to help the uterus contract even stronger to help lessen the bleeding.

Matthew is now 5 days old. Both mother and child are well. He is feeding well and rather well behaved. His physiological jaundice is less obvious today.

Hooi, Joshua, Matthew and I would like to thank you for your kind prayers. A big word of thanks also goes to the many friends and relatives who came visiting while we were in the hospital. God bless you all.

Fishing by the Kinta River

Can you spot 3 gentlemen fishing beside the Kinta river? They are having a good time as it is so simple to catch these catfishes. This picture was taken when I was waiting to fetch my kid from school. Do you know where I was?
