And Once Again, I Say Thank You...

I thank you for hearing
I thank you for listening

I thank you for reading
I thank you for understanding

I thank you for looking
I thank you for seeing

I thank you for feeling
I thank you for sensing

I thank you for doing
I thank you for being

I thank you for laughing
I thank you for crying

I thank you for holding on
I thank you for letting go

I thank you for words
I thank you for silence

I thank you for humility
I thank you for vanity

But most of all... I thank you for love, and I thank you for friendship...

For what is this earth but a floating vessel in space, only to be held up by the great forces which hold us all in equilibria... But friends... THEY spin the earth and make it go round...

And... I thank you for being part of the people who care... Those whom I can approach without having to wear a mask ever again... Knowing that you care for me for who I am, and who I ever will be...

I always will pray for you, continue to be as I can be, as a friend, as a brother to you...

So always, my friend, wear that smile...
Laugh that laugh...
Never let anybody force you to be what you don't want to be =D
Be yourself, but more importantly, be TRUE TO yourself...

And once again, I say thank you...

Realizing that this isn't the first, but knowing really well too that it will not be the last either :)

Just to let you know that I care xD

Cheers to Birth, to Friends, to Family and to Love!!!

16th April, 1990...

The young crybaby was brought forth safely into the world... The things he felt, the things he saw... So strange yet so... Farmiliar... Almost as if he knew he was supposed to be there... The people around him, family... Friends... It was a new beginning...

16th April 2009...

19 years down the road!!! The young crybaby is now... (Not such a crybaby :P) A charming, intelligent, cool-looking, handsome, one-of-a-kind (did I mention handsome?) guy... (Oh but most of all VAIN!!!) Okay okay that was just for fun... Let me tell you a story... The story about "A Day in the Life of Malcolm Chong"...

Seriously now...

It all started at around midnight, the transition from 15th to 16th... Malcolm was absolutely elated to recieve soooooo many smses and calls from family and friends and even verbal birthday wishes from close friends as well as some looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong messages...

Dawn called upon a whole new set of events as the whole day started to unroll as a carpet would its duty... With the sweet vibration and metallic clanging of harmonious bells on board trusty alarm clocks, he knew the day would turn out just superb... A quick bath followed by a nice quiet talk with his Creator and reading His word prepped him up for the day...

Awww mann!!! This'll take forever!!! Okay so i'll just highlight the events then!!! Saves time :)
  1. Gets a place on the lift and finds the bus waiting (rare occurence)
  2. Gets birthday wishes and hugs from friends
  3. Gets a ridiculous amount of smses throughout the day
  4. Gets birthday wishes from sooooooo many people
  5. GETS CALL FROM SHAHRIZAN!!! FROM USA!!! Really made his day!!! (Thanks so much my buddy!!!)
  6. Malaysian Studies class sings "Happy Birthday" to him
  7. Gets even more smses, (Thanks CG!!!) and gets like 4-5 invitations to dinner!!!
  8. Goes for bible discussion thingy and finds out 3.17 is locked...
  9. Moves over to C16 instead and gets SURPRISED!!! (pics below) Thanks soooo much guys!!! :)
  10. Cousin Ju fetches and goes to his house, where I play with his Wii
  11. Transfer to Eastin Hotel to eat Japanese!!! (abit disappointing tho...) (pics below)
  12. Gets call from Sadid, asks Malcolm to help out in something, insists on Malcolm being there to personally see to it...
  13. Goes over and is SURPRISED!!! by Sadid, Anas and gang... TOTALLY unexpected... (Thanks guys!!!)
  14. Thought that was enough, went back to room, goes online and prepared for bed...
  15. Gets emergency call from Naiz close to midnight, asks to rush down for backup...
  16. Rushes down and sure enough... SURPRISED AGAIN!!!! Gathered around the table near  the pool was about 40 people? Anyway, they sang Happy Birthday and... Yup!!! TOTALLY UNEXPECTED AT ALL!!!
I really thank God for all these guys and gals who made my birthday such an interesting, eventful and unforgettable one... More than anything, any present that I got, i'm just glad to have all of you as my friends and family... You ALL mean sooo much to me, and I thank you for it :)

One Wish...


Wishes are things that may or may not come true...

Some people, however, believe that on certain days in their lives, anything they wish for would come true...

But is that....


I wonder...

And if you could wish for anything, and I mean ANYTHING...

What would you wish for?

I wish...

Okay this might be pushing it a little extra... Slightly more than 1 wish never mind, ya? :)

I wish that all the people around me be happy :D (For the people)

I wish that... People around me are glad to have me around...

In short, my wish is that the people around me would smile and say to me "Malcolm, i'm glad to have met you, am proud to be your friend, and am glad you were born into this world 19 years ago..."

That would be a much fairer and greater gift, (if it comes from an honest heart :P) than anyone could ever give... And I promise, i'll treasure it with all of my heart, never to forget it :)

God Loves You More

It is not right...

I... Cannot do it...

The adverse effects are too harsh...
Too long...
Too strong...

I guess, that is just not the way...

It is not the right time yet...

That is, if time IS a factor...


Certain things...

Certain things are just too precious to be broken...

Who am I to destroy the futures of others?

Do I fear for others' sakes?

Or do I fear for myself?

If I do, am I being selfish?

No, no, no!!!

Instead, I shall bless you...

Instead, I shall pray for you...

That no fool may harm you be it in words or deeds...

And in whatever you do, may God's hand prosper it for you...

And... Just be blest in all that you do...

But no, suffering for such trivial matters might be uncalled for...

Whatever it is...

God loves you more

In His Time...

Hey, just a little something to share with you guys and girls just right there wondering, waiting, hoping for something to happen... Giving up hope and rolling around in despair... Just wanna let you noe that hey!!! The time will come :) Just... Don't despair and worry like crazy over small stuff, see the big picture...

Here's a story...

Was it about say... Two days ago? Anyway, I was starting to get rather worried about my university applications... People started getting offer letters while me? I still got none... So it was kind of painful, seeing people slowly receiving admission offers while I did not...

So anyway, I got a real nice e-mail from my church member Jie-Jie Julia which reminded me that basically God was in control and that He IS able to help me out, and that He loves me... That was such a wonderful reminder... I was reminded again that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

Anyway, i'm just here to share a song that got stuck in my head that day and still does ring in my head sometimes... A wonderful reminder of God's love and unfailing love :)

In His Time



In Your time Father, I entrust all of my days, all of my life, everything I have ever loved, everyting I have ever wanted, all that I have, all that I am, all that I will be, all that I ever have been. Thank you Father that Your love and mercy for me extends much greater that I have ever known, and thank You for stretching out Your handa to show just how much You love me... I love You Father... You know I do... Help me to never put any others before You in my life, and help me to remember that my life and everything in it is in Your hands... I know Father that You have the best plan in store for me already. Help me to always trust and hope in You... Thank You Father! I know You will answer, for I ask and pray all this in Jesus' name. Amen!


P/S : Don't worry guys, the time'll come :)

Of Truths, Lies and Acts...

How can you tell when someone is telling the truth?

Is there a real method of looking into one's heart?

Is there a way of seeing if what one says is true?

When one is so good at acting out something... Is it truly possible for him to believe, and be living in a lie?

And if someone has believed and lived out a lie, can that lie finally become... A truth?

Can there possibly be a happy ending for a liar who has finally regretted his lies, for one who has had enough of piling up gossips, hatred, prejudices and... hypocrisies?

A truly great actor is one who is able to visualize, think, react in the way the character would have, or should have...

An actor can be true to his part...

But can he be true to himself?

Never live your life in a lie... Otherwise you might find yourself living a lie...

Actors, take heed, for "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players..."

The question is... Are we playing the right act?

The Potter's Hand

The Potter's Hand by Darlene Zschech

Beautiful Lord, Wonderful Saviour
I know for sure, all of my days are held in your hands,
Crafted into your perfect plan
You gently call me into your presence
Guiding me by Your Holy Spirit
Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes
I'm captured by Your holy calling
Set me apart, I know you're drawing me to yourself
Lead me Lord I pray

Take me, Mould me, use me, fill me
I give my life to the Potter's hand
Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me
I give my life to the Potter's hand

I just love this song... 

Somehow it always reminds me not to worry about the things I tend to worry too much about... I guess one of the main problems plaguing the world today is the problem of worry... When somebody gets worried over something, someone else gets worried about that person, etc... And thus begins a chain reaction of worried people!!!

Sometimes we gotta just chill and sit back, relax and allow the Potter to complete us, to complete the people around us and make us more beautiful than ever...

So don't worry too much about stuff, k? Things'll work out, they always do... When we've got a Daddy up there who loves us that much... It ain't all that surprising... :)
