你们没看过的形象。。。 The image you have not seen before…

我很确定你们很多都没见过我这个形象,就连我自己都几乎忘了有拍过这些照片。。。

最近都在整理书架、相簿等等,看到很多有趣和纪念性的相片,会陆续跟你们分享。。。

这造型嘛,应该是七、八年前拍的吧,最后也没被专辑封面采用;不知不觉又过了那么多年,有什么大改变吗?哈哈!

没什么重要啦,分享给你们看,只是觉得好玩,请不要再为我的形象开始什么大辩论,哈哈哈。。。

I am quite certain many of you have not seen this image of mine, even I myself have quite forgotten that I had taken these photos before…

Recently I have been tidying and clearing my shelves, photo albums etc and discovered many interesting and memorable photos, I will share with you all on and off…

As for this image, it must be about seven or eight years ago, in the end the photos were not used for my album too; and suddenly so many years have gone by, any major changes? Haha!

Nothing serious really, just sharing with you for fun, please do not start any great debate with regard my image again, hahaha…

一位死囚的遗言。。。 Last words of a death row convict…

几个星期前看了一份报导,中国一位高官涉黑涉贪被判死刑。。。
被处决前,他对儿子说:“爸爸有罪,不能埋怨社会,要听话,要好好做人。”

儿子获准得以与父亲拥抱一下,他说那是他长得这么大,爸爸抱他最用力的一次。。。

读得很心酸,人类再怎么样都有爱和感情。。。

我觉得这父亲留给孩子的是很好的遗言,他承认自己有罪,不让孩子带着怨恨、苦毒活在世上;他也间接告诉孩子不可像他犯错一样。
再怎么样,他也算是一个很爱孩子的好父亲。

能认罪是勇气,最怕那些有罪不认还嫁祸与人的人,或者虽然认罪却又怪别人的人;可悲的是也有一些人连自己错了都还不醒悟。。。

“我们若认自己的罪,神是信实的,是公义的,必要赦免我们的罪,洗净我们一切的不义。。。” -约翰一书 1:9

Few weeks ago I read an article on a top official in China being sentenced to death for his involvement in crimes and corruption…
Before his sentence was being carried out, he said to his son,” Daddy has committed a crime, do not blame the society. Be obedient and be a good person.”

The son was allowed to give his father a final hug, he said in all his life, that was the tightest hug his father had ever given him…

I felt sad when reading this, no matter what, human beings do have emotions and love…

I feel that the father had left behind very good last words for his son, he admitted his wrong so that the son will not live on with hatred and bitterness; and he also indirectly told the son not to follow his bad example. So no matter what, he was still a good father who loved his son a lot.

It takes courage to admit your wrong, the scariest is people who will not admit wrong and yet put the blame on others, or those who do admit wrong but still blame others for it; sadly there are also those who are wrong and yet not feeling remorseful…

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness…” -1John 1:9

祖说:你做么会酱?! Jaydon said: Why are you like that?!

在上次我们到槟城参与台湾观光局的活动时,在我们住的地方,祖以很困惑、很无奈、不知所措,也有点受不了的语气对例外人其中一位团员说:“你做么会酱?!”(你为什么会这样?)
你觉得祖这句话是针对谁,而又为什么事情而说的?

人,你们大概会猜得到,因毕竟只需从三个人中选一个;但至于是什么事情惹到祖那么困惑,我想没有人会猜得到,哈哈。。。
你们还是可以先猜猜,等我有空再揭晓。。。

When we went to Penang recently for the Taiwan tourism board activity, while at the place we were staying, feeling kind of perplexed, frustrated, hopeless and even impatient, Jaydon said this to one of the Remnant : “Why are you like that?!”
Who do you think Jaydon was speaking to and over what incident?

As for the person, you might be able to guess right, after all there is only one out of three to choose from; but as for what matter that caused Jaydon to feel so perplexed, I don’t think anyone can guess right, haha…
Well, you can till make a guess first, I will tell you when I am more free…

我从海上回来。。。 I have returned from the sea…

失踪了几天,在海上漂泊。。。不是出事,而是带着例外人参加半旅游的福音大会。。。
25日乘搭处女号大邮轮,由新加坡一路到槟城,再到泰国普吉岛再回到新加坡。。。

Disappeared for a few days, drifting at sea… not encountering any problem, but brought The Remnant to join a semi-holiday type of Gospel Convention…
We boarded the Star Virgo cruise on the 25th, all the way from Singapore to Penang and Phuket in Thailand and back to Singapore again…

抵达普吉岛的前一晚风浪很大,海浪整晚拍打着窗门,船也摇撼得很厉害。。。孩子们有些害怕,特别是丘历根本没办法睡觉,一直起来看窗外的海浪,大概在思想若沉船该如何逃。。。
我呢?却熟睡的像当年耶稣在加利利海上一样,哈哈哈。。。
The night before we arrived at Phuket, the sea was rather rough and the waves crashed against the window the whole night, and the ship was rocking quite a lot too… the kids were rather afraid especially Danny who could not sleep and kept getting up to look at the waves outside the window, perhaps thinking about how to escape should there be a shipwreck…
As for me? I slept like a log as Jesus did that time at the Sea of Galilee, hahaha…

但老实说,我们这些常常飞、常常出门的,都要常常祷告交托给神;每次能平安去、平安回,都是神的恩典。。。
But honestly, for those of us who often fly or travel, we must always commit ourselves to God too; to be able to go and come back safely each time is the grace of God…

昨晚回到新加坡,今天29日才飞回古晋,例外人则飞往吉隆坡参加另一场活动。。。
We arrived back at Singapore last night, and I flew bak to Kuching today the 29th. As for The Remnant, they have flown to KL for another engagement…

你会选择哪一位朋友? Which friend would you choose?

两个好朋友,一个很爱你但脾气很不好,常常跟你起争执和吵架;另一位没那么爱你,但也不会跟你有什么冲突和争吵。。。
你会比较喜欢跟哪一个在一起?

Two good friends, one loves you very much but has bad temper so always argues and quarrels with you; the other does not love you that much but does not conflict or quarrel with you that much too…
Which would you prefer to be with more?

注:照片与故事无关。。。哈哈!
Note: Nothing to do with the photos… haha!

新加坡最幸福的女佣。。。 Happiest maid in Singapore…

昨天报章上读了这篇有趣也“感人”的报道,一个忠心照顾主人24年的菲律宾女佣在雇主去世时,继承了雇主在遗嘱里留给她的新币六百万遗产。。。

从报道来看,她仿佛的确是一个好女佣,而且跟雇主感情良好。

我觉得感人的地方在于她回答记者的问题,当被询及继承了那么庞大数目,她是否觉得自己是全新加坡最幸福的女佣,她回答:“不管有没有那笔钱,我都是新加坡最幸福的女佣。”

很有智慧的答案吧?

I read in the paper yesterday this interesting and “touching” article. A Filipino maid who faithfully served her employer for 24 years inherited S$6 million from her employer when the employer passed away….

From the report, she seemed a really good maid who had a very good relationship with the employer too.

The part I felt touched is how she answered the reporter when being asked whether she thought she is the happiest maid in Singapore after inheriting such a huge amount. She answered, “I’ve always been the happiest maid in Singapore with or without that amount of money.”

A very wise answer, right?

新加坡,我来也。。。 Singapore, I’m coming…

随着岁月成长。。。蜕变。。。 Growing through the years… transformation…

人说小时候长得好看,大了就不好看;小时候不好看,大了就会变成好看。。。
你们赞成吗?这是什么道理啊?
但老实说,这种话,听听玩玩就好了,无需太认真也无需为之辩论得面红耳赤。。。

我只知道小狗都很可爱,大了有一些真的变得很丑;而小鸟刚开始非常丑,越大就越美丽。。。
那我呢。。。?哈哈!

我小时候常为自己的长相感觉自卑,越大或越“老”自信也逐渐增加,但那并不表示我认为自己变得越来越好看,而是经历及认识了神,内心世界、价值观等等都会起了变化。。。
但我也相信,一个有自信的人,怎样都会比较有吸引力,只要不要过度而变成自高自傲。。。

Some say if you were good looking when small, then you will not be good looking when grown; and if you were not good looking when small, you will grow up to be good looking…
Do you agree? What kind of logic is that?
But honestly, this kind of statement is just to listen for fun, there is no need to be too serious about it, less so to argue over it…

All I know is puppies are very cute but some grow up to be real ugly; and nestlings start off very ugly but become more and more beautiful as they grow…
Then what about me…? Haha!

I often felt inferior about my look when young, but as I grow “older” my confidence increases too. That does not mean I think I have become better looking but rather after encountering and knowing God, your inner self and value system etc will start to change…
But I believe too a confident person is somewhat more attractive too, as long as it is not too much and perceived to be arrogant or proud…

看看我成长中的照片,我最“美丽”的时刻是几时呢?哈哈。。。
我将会刊登一篇有关此主题的文章。。。
Look at my growing up photos, which is my most “beautiful” moment? Haha…
I will post an article on this topic…

婴孩。。。  baby…

两、三岁时吧。。。  Round about 2 or 3 years old…

四、五岁?  4 or 5?

七、八岁?  7 or 8?

十一、十二。。。  11 or 12…

十五岁。。。 15 years old…

十九岁。。。19 years old…

今天,几岁。。。?  Today, how old…?

至于那帅哥。。。 As for that handsome guy…

我真的有些讶异好多人看不出他是谁,尤其是我们教会的弟兄姐妹。。。你们的分辨能力未免太差了,哈哈!

这是我大哥,义仁啊!看他有多帅,想当年有多少女孩子喜欢他;那时我还是小学生,常常渴望长大后能像他一样帅。。。结果呢。。。?

我也很讶异竟然有好几个以为他是例外人团长祖的爸爸!那看来我跟祖的确有点相似了(这是祖的快乐还是悲哀呢?)。。。
难怪有初次见到我和祖的香港人、台湾人等,以为我跟祖是父子。。。

I was really surprised so many of you could not tell who this is, especially our church’s brothers and sisters… your discernment is really weak, haha!

This is my eldest brother, Gee Jin! See how handsome he was, I remember so many girls fell for him then; I was only a primary school kid then, how I always wished I would grow up to be as handsome as he was… and the result…?

I was also very surprised quite a few thought that is Jaydon Joo’s father! That means Joo and I do have some resemblance (now is that good or bad news to Jaydon?)…
No wonder some Hong Kongers, Taiwanese, etc who saw Jaydon and I together for the first time thought we were father and son…

我有两个哥哥,中间那个是大哥。。。大哥一直以来都很保护我和以我为荣,到今天也是如此。。。
左边那个是我二哥,他生命也有很美好的见证。。。
最上面那个当然是我啦!1988年从纽西兰回来度假,看我多阳光、多健壮。。。

I have two older brothers, the one in the middle is my eldest brother… my big brother has always been very protective and proud of me, even today…
The one on the left is my second brother, he has a great testimony too…
And the guy on top is of course me! Came back from New Zealand for a holiday in 1988, look at how tanned and fit I was…

至于那神秘女郎。。。 As for that mysterious lady…

我知道我答应若有人猜对地点就跟你们讲故事。。。我当然会遵守诺言。。。
那你预备好听故事了吗?这神秘女郎到底是谁?

I know I have promised you guys that I will tell you a story when someone guesses the place right… of course I will keep my word…
So, are you ready for the story? Who actually is this mysterious lady?

你们期待听到什么故事?但你们有没有注意到我只答应讲故事给你们听,却没有说是什么样的故事?哈哈哈!
看以下我在前两篇有关这的文章所写的:

What kind of story do you expect? But did you notice that I only promised to tell you a story and did not say what kind of story it is going to be? Hahaha!
Note what I wrote in my two previous articles on this:

“这是什么地方?
猜对了就讲故事给你们听。。。哈哈!
where is this place?
If you guessed right, then I will tell you a story… haha!”

“你们真的是猜中了,那我该怎么办?
那就该履行所承诺的讲故事给你们听了。。。
you have guessed the answer correctly, then what should I do?
Then I would have to keep my promise of telling you a story…”

所以现在我要讲什么故事都可以了,哈哈哈。。。

但为了满足你们的好奇心,我就好心透露一下那照片里的神秘女郎是谁吧。。。
很多的猜测,甚至有一些认为是我姐姐。。。乍看之下,的确某些神韵蛮像我姐,今天这两张就是我姐在至少三十年前拍的照片,的确是一位清纯美少女。。。

但真正的那神秘女郎又是谁呢?

原来她是我的好朋友,当年我们一群好朋友到适耕庄玩,当中一位是摄影师,就选中我们两个充当他的模特儿咯。。。
事件就这么单纯,你们却想出那么多故事来!难怪今天艺人也有那么多八卦新闻,因为人的想象力越来越丰富。。。呃。。。与其说丰富,倒不如说越来越狭窄,因所想象的总离不开儿女私情。。。
好笑的是,甚至有些还很同情我的安慰我,以为我还走不出他们所想象已逝的“情伤”,哈哈哈哈。。。但还是谢谢你们的关心啦。事实是,在我记忆中,好像生命中没经历过什么“情伤”呢。。。

然而,为避免引起更多的瞎猜和误会,我就决定把那两篇文章拿下来了。。。
但,我的确有很多故事可以跟你们分享,包括“有一个我很爱的人”。。。那又将会是什么故事呢?请拭目以待吧,哇哈哈哈哈哈哈哈!

So now I can tell you whatever story I want, hahaha…

But in order to satisfy your curiosity, I will be very kind to reveal who that mysterious lady in the photo is…
There were many guesses, even including whether she is my elder sister… upon a quick look, yes, certain angles do look like my sister, these two photos of my sister’s today were taken at least thirty years ago, she was indeed a sweet natural beauty then…

But then , who is the real mysterious lady?

Alright, she is a good friend of mine, at that time, a group of my good friends went to visit Sekinchan, and one of them was a photographer, and he chose the two of us to be his models…
As simple as that, but you all could conjure up so many stories! No wonder there are so many gossips in the news regarding many celebrities nowadays, because people have become very “rich” in their imagination… err… should I say “narrow” as their imagination always centers around boy-girl relationship…
Funny thing is some even feel sorry for me and try to comfort me thinking I have not come out of the “emotional hurt” I went through in the imagined broken relationship, hahahaha… but thanks for your concern anyway. The truth is, I can’t really think of any such “hurt” in my life…

However, to avoid more wild guesses and misunderstandings, I have decided to take down the two articles…
But I truly do have many stories to share with you all, including on “There is someone whom I love very much”… what will that story be about again? Just wait and see, muahahahahahahaha!

二姐年轻时的照片,如今她已是三个孙子的婆婆了。。。
Young picture of my second sister, she is now a grandmother of three…
