Quick Updates

Life is good up here in Israel! We're having such a blessed and inspired time with the Holy Spirit and the family. We have visited some amazing biblical sites that have changed our entire perspective of the Word and gained revelations into God's prophetic ministry in the Holy land. I wished you could be here with me to experience all of these. I can assure you that your spiritual life will take on a new dimension altogether. Reading and believing in the Word is one thing. It creates for us, a 2-dimensional realm. Walking the actual sites launches you into a 3-dimensional realm where you personally encounter the person of Jesus. It is an experience you can never make up or create visually in your mind.

OK, time to head off to the Dead Sea now. Will update more soon!

Off To Israel!

I'll be spending the next 13 days on a trip to Israel. It's a much long-awaited trip and a place I've desired to go to for the longest time! We're travelling in a group of about 40 from YouthNet and I'm excited to experience the Holy Land and receive fresh revelations about the connection between Israel, us and God in the end times.

You'll hear about my updates when I return. Plus pictures!

What Makes A Good Opening?

Hillsong Conference 2007 Opening. What makes a show opening good and memorable? The key ingredients: good music, captivating video, an impressive band and powerful vocals. I love the full orchestra used in 2007's conference opening. It adds a new flavour to Hillsong's traditional rock genre. The blending in of classical and modern rock is refreshing and integrates well with the colourful graphics displayed on their amazingly-loooong LED video wall (i like!).

We need to raise the ante again for this year's Countdown Party. It's back to the drawing board.

Praying for inspiration. Lots of it!

Ying Xiong II

HEROES Season 2 has started! Woohoo! I know I'm a little late, but it's a good thing that it's back cos I can't wait to find out what the creators have up their sleeves in Volume 2! OK, the word's out that there are a couple more characters who will be introduced. New Heroes Maya and Alejandro are brought into the story, each possessing a power; Maya produces a potent and lethal illness, while Alejandro's is the antidote. They run from the law towards America, where they hope to find help from the author of the book Activating Evolution. Unaware that Chandra Suresh is deceased, they pick up a half-dead stranger lying on the road (a powerless Sylar), who happens to know the author....

Ok, too much to know for now. (it's all Wikipedia's fault)



I've recently joined the bandwagon and started up my very own Facebook account 2 weeks ago. What is facebook? Check it out on your own here - It started off looking as another Friendster-like interface but I soon realised it contained so much more when I began installing these fascinating applications. There's one which allows you to see how your name is written in Japanese and another which allows you to ka-cheow others by "superpoking" them. Sigh... I wonder how I ever find the time to get started on such things. The only true benefit I see out of this is the opportunity to reconnect with old friends. I've had some interesting conversations with several long-lost buddies. It's great to be able to link up with them again. I guess they're all happy now with my change in status (err... it's something that shows up on my Facebook profile now).

If you haven't already known, Fishmonger hauled in his biggest catch in 29 years of his life recently. She is pictured above, attempting to give him a *superpoke*.

Wow.. what a day at Kona! This is the first time I was catching the race "live" on video streaming and it was certainly a blast! With Faris Al-Sultan and Stadler out-of-action due to a stomach virus, I knew it was going to be Macca's day!

The race proved not to be an easy one for Macca though. He wasn't featured in the Top Ten at the start of the bike leg. He had emerged from the swim slightly later than the lead group and was in something like 15th position. 40km into the bike, he caught up with the others and was now part of the chase group hunting down a very fast Chris Lieto. His lead lasted for a while until bike specialist, Torbjorn Sindballe decided to step up gear and opened up a wide gap between him and the others. I wanted to see for myself how fast this man, also known as "Thunder Bear", could ride and maintain his lead into the marathon leg. He is known to hit the wall early on the run because his big body frame causes him to overheat easily. I heard he had a heat management plan in place. I guess that translated into a white long sleeve top and extremely high heat compression socks. It did made him look a tad nerdy though.

I will NEVER wear anything like that to race. Not even if the scorching sun begins to melt my body. No way, never.

Macca ran an amazing 2:42 marathon to overtake Chris Lieto and Torbjorn Sindballe. He was hotly pursued by eventual 2nd place winner Craig Alexander but Macca's blistering pace gradually opened up a 3mins lead. In fact he was so fast out of T2, he did 16mins over 5km. Now, that's FAST. I could never do that even if I was running a 5km time trial. It's inhuman. But that's Macca for you. He never dropped his pace. He kept the stride on, beaming to the fact that he was now living his dreams. He looked up to the sky every now and then, pumping his fist in the air as he ran the final 2 miles of the marathon. He was already basking in the glory of winning his first World Championship title.

Macca's plan was executed to perfection. He has been training so hard for this and finally got what he desired.
Well done Macca! You've been truly inspiring.
