Angels Without Wings

22 Feb

This song is originally written by my good friend, Chin Chern, titled “Angels Without Wings (Espionage)” and I immediately fell in love with his song. He is so kind to let me “use” his song, and I made it into my own version.

I remained the melody of the verse, but then I changed the chorus. This song tells people that when you think you feel lonely, there is always an angel without wings that is by your side. You are not alone… do you have an angel beside you? Well, I know I do! 🙂

CrossRoads

21 Feb

Occasionally when a melody struck in my mind, I will probably hum it out and write the lyrics. I never played my songs on the piano, until my good friend, Chin Chern, inspired me to play the melody on the piano. He writes soothing music that I really like a lot.

This song, CrossRoads, is written because I feel that being a teenger, we are bound to meet up with crossroads that we need to decide. Just like the poem “The Road Not Taken”, we need to choose only one of the many roads, and we must choose that road wisely, as it will determine your future. This song is purely my composition, so I hope you guys like the song. The chords are very simple, it revolves around the F major key.

Enjoy, people!

Brendon, You Will Be Remembered

22 Jan

 

My first and last personal picture with Brendon Yeoh Yuen Khye.

Looking at the picture on the left, my original caption in my blog was "What happens when Brandon and Brendon meet? Nothing!" and it really made me feel regretful for putting this caption.

Most of us are getting more numb, we are learning to face the truth and reality, although we really hope that all of these won’t happened at all.

We attended Brendon’s funeral today in the morning, and it was crowded with students, as we expected. We first took the last glimpse of Brendon before the monks perform the ritual. It was the third day that Brendon’s body had been placed there, so I think most of us couldn’t recognize his face, as his face was deformed. I wish not to describe it as a respect. I wanted to cry but no tears came down. I think I was getting numb of all of these, not that I’m aloof, but the reality has sunk into me. Brendon can’t be with us anymore…

After the ritual, we as his friends came out clubs by clubs to pay respect and bow three times in front of his coffin. When the announcer announced "Debate Club" I stepped forward together with Wooi Keat, Chin Chern, Eric Tan, Kai Deng, Khai Hean, Miss Lim and Wei Huai. We gave our final testimonial to Brendon before bowing. Wooi Keat got really emotional when he shared, with the rest were holding back a lot. I promise my friend that I will stay strong, I will not cry in front of Brendon anymore.

When it was my turn to share, I said, "Brendon, I miss the days when there were two Bra/endon’s to create confusion among friends and teachers. We will always miss you." I teared up a little, but I couraged up myself. Brendon certainly did not want us to weep sadly anymore. We, the Debate Club members, told Brendon that he was an awesome debater who did not need any script to perform, which was commendable.

More clubs came to respect him and soon it was time for us to send Brendon for the last time. We walked for quite a long journey, and my skin got reddish, but I think it was worth it, to send my friend for the last time.
I could not afford to walk the whole journey, so we took the bus straight to Batu Gantung Cremotorium, and we were just in time before Brendon’s coffin being pushed into the machinery. Cameras flashed a lot. *clicks 100 times*.

Sorrow is a fruit; God does not allow it to grow on a branch that is too weak to bear it. There can be no rainbow without a cloud and a storm

WE, as a human being, cannot escape death. It’s just a matter of time when your destiny ends, to be with the Lord. I pray that all the victims can live happily above. Since Jason and Brendon are the members of the Apoms, they should be happy up there. In fact, all of them should be living happily.

God bless, everybody!

The 5 Watches

7 Jun

A friend of mine send me an e-mail:

” Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. People always watch us as Christians, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard and remember, You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself ‘Christians’.”

If you believe in God, you must believe in him entriely. Stay true to yourself and don’t hesitate to pray to Him if you need any help.

The 5 Watches that I would like to share with you are:

WATCH your thoughts, they become words.

WATCH your words, they become actions.

WATCH your actions, they become habits.

WATCH your habits, they become character.

WATCH your character, it become your DESTINY.

God bless. Amen!
