Burning issues

Today marks the first year that I have wilfully NOT visited the family temple and graves, for ancestor worship and burning paper money. Last year I thought I’d tag along just to help clean up the weeds and sweep away the dirt on my great-grandparents’ graves. However I soon realised that everyone who was going …

Matchmaker

God has a sense of humour. And matchmaking skills, to boot. A few months ago, a new church mate joined my Bible Studies group. We hadn’t met her before, but a few of us had seen her singing in the choir. She was either referred, or felt drawn to, our group, perhaps because we were …

Alpha Live

I went for the Alpha talk at Fullerton Hotel to see Nicky Gumbel. He was good. Funny. Took photos with new phone. Don’t have laptop, so can’t beam it, and am too tired to take out the multimedia card in my phone and connect it to PC, so no photos for now. Realised that if …

Heal my computer

Last night, after starting, my computer detected new hardware. Strange, because I hadn’t inserted any. It was my ethernet controller. Hmph, I thought, maybe it was loose and got reconnected again.

Protector

So, the battle has begun again. I have reason to believe that we have been followed onto the new premises. Just an hour ago, I put on a Christian music CD. Everyone else was fast asleep in their rooms. My Sony CD player has lasted for twenty years and does not usually stop by itself. …

A near accident

On my way home, I was on the leftmost lane of Zion Road, at the junction of the Blue Cow pub, waiting to turn left. Traffic was heavy and the cars in front of me were edging onward to the junction while the light was still green. Suddenly, I heard a crunching of bumpers. The …
