UPDATE: Carolyn has given birth to a healthy baby boy and given back to its rightful mother. Sean and Carolyn had even sent them heartiest congratulations! What a great story in a mess-up world!

Carolyn Savage and husband Sean were so happy to find out that Carolyn was pregnant with their child. Then came the "out of the world" phone call as if a ton of bricks came crashing on them. The fertility center said that she had carried someone else's baby. How did it happen? Or rather, how could it happen? They had put in the wrong embryo into Carolyn's womb which is like one in a multi-million chance!

Carrying for eight months, nurturing it with great expectation to cuddle the baby and then whoosh, all came to nought!

The real mother of the baby, Shannon Morell and her husband Paul have mixed feelings, on one hand, excited and the other hand, distraught at the suffering of Carolyn.

What makes this story so extraordinary was Sean and Carolyn did the right thing, they will hand the baby back to the rightful owner. To many, this issue would have gone to the courts to be fought bitterly! Some may even abort the baby!
Carolyn said it was the most difficult thing that had happened to her but the first thing she thought was to give back the baby! This is definitely the grace of God and I salute her and her husband. They did not even name the fertility clinic for fear of backlash. They knew it was a mistake and mistake happens! If only the world has more of you guys!

Shannon Morell was so grateful to her indeed! "How do you thank somebody for what they've done?" Shannon Morell said. "I could say thank you a million different ways." She felt so guilty although it was not her fault at all. She would let Carolyn get close to this special boy to be born, perhaps be his godma or something (this suggestion was by this blogger).

Children are gifts from God! They belong to God and parents have been given responsibility to care and nurture them until they become a blessing to the world for God's glory!

Together, Shannon and Carolyn, and your respective husbands, Sean and Paul, nurture this kid to become a testimony for Christ!

Welcome to orange Sydney, a dust storm turning the beautiful city into an Armageddon liked scene.
Jesus spoke of birthpangs before His second coming or His return to earth. Like a woman in final stage of her pregnancy, the baby will kick harder and stronger. When earthquake happened during the 80's, there would be great commotion around the world. But today, earthquakes are just normal thing in the eyes of people. I think the small ones are considered as a minor traffic accident, only the big ones are reported widely. People of the world are being prepared for Armageddon. Hollywood continues unrelentlessly to show violent and disaster movies, latest being 2012, coming to cinemas on Nov 12th. 2012 speaks about the end of the world according to the ancient Mayan civilisation. Their calender ends in 21st Dec, 2012. Then there is the recent film about death, Final Destination II, which further numbs the minds of audience about death. It is like Hollywood is preparing people for the ultimate judgment that is coming - Armageddon!
No matter how much the world leaders talked about lowering nuclear weapons, the nuclear bombs that they had are enough to destroy the earth many times over.
Are you ready for the "baby"? Thanks be to God that He prepares a way for Christians to escape His wrath that is coming. Those who believe Jesus as their personal Saviour and Lord will be shielded by God through rapture, the biggest and most dramatic disapperance act ever in the history of mankind. Transporting millions to heaven in a single second!
PS: The sandstorm is like a manna sent from heaven to car washing companies, the only good news sandstorm brought to Sydney.

I was actually disturbed recently to read about my own country's people actually starving. The Penans, a tribal (Bumiputera) people in Sarawak, were running short of food and some of the girls were raped by workers especially belonging to the logging companies as being reported. The shortage of food is recent but rapes have been going on for some time, without any action being taken from the authorities. I thank God now, their plight has been highlighted by the newspapers and everyone now knows about the Penans. This tribal group is mostly my brothers and sisters in Christ.

I want to thank God for Father Sylvester Ding (Two thumbs up for the Dings) for organising and delivering food for these people. Malaysia has boasted of sky scrapers, super highways, food haven and incredible numbers of rich people but starvation in our own backyard? What is happening, man??

Lately, the government is talking about getting into Formula One with Lotus (owned by Proton), a complete Malaysian outfit. Some people have estimated it would cost about RM1 billion to continuously manage the outfit in Formual One.

Formula One - RM1 billion
Penans - Starvation.

I think the government should rethink the decision. Unless we can get foreign sponsors for the Race in Formula One, please forget about getting famous!

Finally, Liverpool changed its major sponsor! After 17 years, Carlsberg was dropped as the main sponsor thus the front portion of the famous Liverpool jersey. It will change to Standard Chartered Bank...BIG, STRONG, and FRIENDLY!

What a day for some fans like me, who do not like to "advertise" Carlsberg together with a glorious team like Liverpool. Please don't get me wrong, I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST CARLSBERG! They had served Liverpool well (money wise), sometimes get them drunk too. This is just a personal opinion and you don't have to agree with me.

With Standard Chartered, finally I will buy my Liverpool jersey! I told many people, my instant friends are those who came from Sitiawan (my hometown) and of course, Liverpool fans! Psss, I may even start a SC bank account!
Jesus loves you! Liverpool may fail you but Jesus never will!

The Internet is 40 years old. 1969 was the year where the first e-mail was sent from one computer to another in a research done in the United States. Then Vinton Cerf and Robert Kahn developed it and called it "Internet' in 1974. In 1988, Internet became commercial and later domain names using dot-com and others came into play.

Time travel back to around 1988. I was at Richard Chong's place and he was talking to me about Internet when we had our music practice in his home. During that time, I was excited of such advance technology but couldn't comprehend how it play out in the future.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee completes the original software for the World Wide Web (WWW) and since then, nothing and no one can stop its Tsunamic (if you have such a word) growth. The Internet was used by just a few when it first came out, and now, a whopping 1.5 to 2 billion people using the Internet! With wireless connection and I Phones getting extremely popular, there is no stopping its growth.

Only 40 years and the world is shrinking into a global kampung. Right now, everything is open before our eyes, including very early and unhealthy sex education (or should I say sex exploration)! Internet has become such a part of our lives that I don't know of anyone who has not got into Internet at all. It's like saying to that person, "Hey, get a life!"

By the way, Internet is not a surprise to our Mighty Creator God. Anyway, every raw material that mankind uses and every drop of wisdom used to create things comes from Him. There is in fact, nothing new under the sun. God sees Internet coming to serve His purpose. I believe when Jesus comes again, Internet will come in handy or should I say "sighty" where U Tube that features His return will have historic number of hits and downloads! Blogs, Facebook and Twitter will discuss nothing else except Jesus and His return.

PS: I wonder whether Jesus would set up Facebook or a Blog when He comes back to rule!

Former Miss California, Carrie Prejean is suing some people in the Beauty Pageant Organisers. The 22-year-old beauty queen lost her crown in June for what was claimed by officials a "breach of contract" and failure to attend scheduled appearances. But her lawyer insisted she was kicked out because of the comments she made during the Miss USA competition in April, when she said marriage should be between a man and a woman.

I heard that myself on TV and she said it was her own opinion. You mean, nowadays, I cannot even have my own opinions anymore! The world has indeed gone mad! And her opinion is the opinion of majority peoples in the universe and I can say, it also includes God's! When she said that, there was some boos in the crowd who obviously didn't like what she said. They were thinking what's wrong when a man married a man and a woman married a woman. Someone said this and I quote, God did not create Adam and Steve, but Adam and Eve. God did not create a Madam and Eve to consummate!!

There is going to be a great challenge to what Christians stand for. There were challenges throughout history and in these last days, there will be tremendous onslaught against what the Bible proclaims!

(Rom 1:18-19; 21, 24) The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them....For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.... Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

Note this phrase, "God gave them over.." God allowed their futile and unrepentant
minds to carry on rebelling against God until judgment takes place.

(Rom 1:26 - 27) Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

Carrie Prejean, hang on to your stand! Don't even give away an inch on what you believe in!

I read with concern in The Malay Mail last week about a concert in Singapore of the famous Lady Gaga. She spoke to a 10,000-strong audience, using the F-word frequently and mostly teenagers in the crowd would respond with wild cheers! To my horror, there are some parents there who also cheered together with their children. And I heard about this “Drake” guy who had a song in the top of the charts, the chorus is absolutely vulgar. His U Tube video of this song garnered almost 20 million hits!

Even the Christian Miley Cyrus (her father is also a Christian) who is idolised by teenagers the world over, dressed and danced sexily in the recent Teens Choice Awards ceremony. She also said publicly that Britney Spears was her idol.

What is happening to teenagers today in our country? These are my views and opinions...

1. They are constantly looking for pleasures and hoping to get approval from parents, pastors and other adults (If someone disagrees, they may nod their heads but inside, “Who cares what you think?”)

2. They don’t like adults who guard their every move.

3. They think they have learned enough and are strong enough to face the world.

4. They think they can come back anytime if they fail or fall. (They often take consequences for granted)

5. They think that being cool (using F-words, scantily dressed, clubbing etc..) is the way of life. (Parents and adults are from the ‘older’ generation.) Certain mannerisms like greeting an elderly person or saying sorry are not cool.

6. They give up easily because they think there are lots of alternatives around.

7. They tend to rush and often miss what God is doing or saying, in the world filled with instant quick messaging services like MSN, SMS, FACEBOOK, TWITTER and etc....
