应该哪一个造型呢。。。? Which image shall I have…?

下午又要去为新专辑拍造型照。。。一想到就很头痛和懒惰去,因又要花费很多时间,而且构思造型也很费精力。。。

不知拍出来的效果会如何?( 有人说不要太担心因为这年头什么都可“photoshop”电脑加工,哈哈。。。 )

看看以下我随便拿出来的一些以前的造型。。。你们有什么建议吗?

请分享吧,虽然我不一定听取,哈哈。。。

Going to have my image photo-shoot again this afternoon for my new album… I get “headache” and feel lazy to go when I think of it as it takes a lot of time to do, and it is very taxing on your brains to think about image and style…

Wonder what the results of the photos would be? ( Someone said not to worry too much as everything can be “photoshop” or altered by the computer nowadays, haha…)

Have a look at some of my previous images I randomly took out… do you have any suggestion?

Feel free to give your opinions though I may not listen at all, haha…

专辑“会笑的嘴”的造型。。。Image for the album “A Smiling Face”…

专辑“认识我”。。。  Album “Knowing Me”…

Still have a lot but no time to search for you to see… as for my look “today”… haha!

今年,很特别的复活节。。。 This year, a very special Easter…

近一两年来,总感觉教会有些停顿。。。每每这种感觉来,我们身为牧者、领袖都爱为自己找借口。。。

事实是我们应该谦卑在神面前悔改,求上帝指示和教导。。。

打从去年我就有感觉今年复活节一定要有一些特别节目,今年本来已接洽台湾艺人范玮琪和黑人来教会布道,后来有些更改。。。原来上帝要我们自己禁食祷告寻求他,让教会再复兴起来。。。

所以我们从3月30(二)禁食到4月1日(四),然后从星期四晚上开始一系列的教导,教导过后一起呼求主祷告,果然圣灵很强烈的运行,很久大家已没这经历。。。

看着弟兄姐妹认真迫切的祷告、悔改、呼求主,和随之而来的兴奋和火热。。。真的让今年的复活节倍感不一样,感觉教会真的复活了!赞美主!

求神保守我们重新点燃的火,不要熄灭,反而要越烧越旺,阿们又阿们!

(我深感那几天的聚会和教导都有上帝的带领和恩膏,慢一点会把录影上载,没机会参加的弟兄姐妹,鼓励你们也观赏领受神的赐福!)

For the past year or so, I’ve always felt that the church is kind of stagnant… whenever this kind of feeling arises, as pastors or leaders, we tend to find excuses for ourselves…

The truth is we should humble ourselves before God and repent, and pray for God to instruct and teach us…

Since last year I have had the feeling that this Easter we must have some special programme, I actually had arranged for Taiwanese artistes Fan Wei Qi and the boy friend to come to our church for an evangelistic concert, but the programme was later changed… now I know it is because God wanted us to fast and pray to seek Him instead, that the church would be revived again…

So we fasted from March 30th (Tue) to April 1st (Thur), then from Thur evening we had a series of teachings and after the teachings, we cried out and prayed to God. The Holy Spirit really moved powerfully, we had not had this experience for quite a while…

Seeing brothers and sisters praying seriously and fervently, repenting, crying out to God and the excitement and fired-up hearts after… Easter this year is really so different, it feels that the church has come back to life! Praise the Lord!

May God preserve this rekindled fire of ours that it will not go out but to burn ever brighter, Amen and Amen!

( I really feel that the meetings and teachings those few days were really under God’s guidance and anointing, we will upload the recordings later. For those who did not have a chance to come, I encourage to watch the videos and be blessed by God!)

林义忠最新出炉的样子。。。 GT’s latest look…

再一个多礼拜就要飞往加拿大和美国布道,但机票都还没订,加拿大签证也还没申请!

旅行社催说再拖恐来不及了。。。所以刚刚匆匆忙忙赶去拍张照为申请签证。。。

没什么准备、没什么选择。。。昨天刚理了头发,这三天都在禁食。。。所以这是我最新和最自然的样子。。。

One more week or so and I’m flying to Canada and the USA for meetings, but I haven’t even booked my tickets, and Canadian visa not applied yet!

My travel agent said might be too late if I delayed some more… so I rushed to take some photo just a while ago to apply for visa…

No preparation, no choice… just had my haircut yesterday, and been fasting these three days…

So this is my most recent and most natural look…

还好吧?感觉皮肤很干净,哈哈。。。
Still ok I hope? The skin looks very clean, haha…

跟以下四、五年前的我,有什么差别吗?。。。唉,岁月不留人啊。。。
Any difference from the “me” four or five years ago below?… sigh, time waits for no man…

这教导。。。你认为呢。。。? This teaching… what do you think…?

简单又有效的压力测试法 Simple and effective stress level test

看来很多人都急于来个自我压力测试,可见面对压力的人真的太平常了。。。
Looks like many are eager to take this self-examining stress level test, this just shows indeed many people are really stressed out…

压力!压力!压力! Stress! Stress! Stress!

在现代人的生活中,尤其是城市人,压力仿佛是司空见惯的事情。。。常常都听到人们把“很压力”挂在嘴边。。。
事实是,每个人的生活或多或少一定会有压力,重要的是你怎样面对和看待。。。
积极的话,压力会推你上进;消极则会让人崩溃!

In modern men’s lifestyles, especially city people, stress or “pressure” seems to be something very common… you often hear people say they are very “stressed”…
The truth is to some extent everyone will have stress in their lives in big or small ways, the important thing is how you face or deal with it…
If you handle stress positively, it will drive you to greater heights, but negatively, you might break down!

基本上,我是一个被压力推动的人。。。没压力时,我较会拖延;压力一来,我反而会比较积极起来。。。但也有承担不了的时刻。。。
Basically I am one driven by stress… without pressure, I tend to procrastinate; but when pressure comes, I become more pro-active… but of course there were times I could not take it too…



有人问过我说,做牧师会有压力吗?因有时候他们看我好像悠哉、闲哉,坐怀不乱。。。
Some people asked me whether there is any pressure to be a pastor, for sometimes I appear very relaxed and carefree to them, calm and unperturbed…

才怪!那只是表面罢了,好不好?!里面思路相撞、情绪翻腾、无声呐喊等,都是别人看不到的。。。哈哈!
Oh, please! That is just on the surface, ok?! Inside, there might be a lot of thoughts clashing, upheavals of emotions, unheard screams etc that people cannot see… haha!

据说美国某组织曾经进行过一个压力调查活动,把各个最压力的“职业”照次序排下来。。。结果调查显示最压力的工作榜首是飞机场指挥飞机上下的交通指挥官,第二压力的工作竟然是“做牧师”!
很惊讶吧?
所以多体恤和爱你们的牧者多一点吧,他们整天为你们的灵魂担忧,与魔鬼争战,还时常面对会友的批判,压力可真不小呢!
I heard some American organisation did a research on stress level before, and they ranked different careers according to their stress levels… the result showed that the job with the highest stress level was air-traffic controller at airport controlling tower, and the next in line was being a “pastor”!
Surprised?
So better appreciate and love your pastor more, they are often concerned for your souls, battling the devil, and facing criticisms from members, no minor stress I tell you!

那面对太大的压力该怎么处理呢?
What to do then when facing too great a pressure?


当然身为基督徒的大好处就是能够来到上帝的面前,进入他同在,将一切重担交托。。。(咦?后面的丘历怎么睁一只眼、闭一只眼?)
Of course the great benefit of being a Christian is to be able to come before God, to enter into His presence and hand over everything to Him…
(Eh? How come Danny was shutting one eye with the other open behind?)

但那是在属灵上。。。实际上,压力太大时,找时间给自己放假休息一下是很重要的!所谓“休息是为了走更远的路”,这话是真的!
But that is on the spiritual side… on the physical, when the pressure proves too great, it is very important to find time to give yourself a break and go for a vacation! It is well-said that ” a good rest is for a longer journey ahead”!

至于怎么知道你的压力指数已高达必须要放假休息的地步呢?
As to how we could know whether our stress level has reached the index for us to urgently take a break or holiday?

我下一篇会跟你们分享一个各大精神病院所采用的压力测试法,很简单的自我测试,又容易又准确,我本身也试过了,包你满意!
你们一定要试试看,看你们的压力是否已达到必须放假休息的指数!
敬请期待下一篇 “简单又有效的压力测试法”。。。

I shall be sharing with you in my next posting a stress level test used by all major mental hospitals, a very simple self-test, very easy and very accurate, I have tried it myself, guaranteed satisfaction!
You all must try it, see whether your stress level has reached the index that requires definite break or holiday!
Please patiently await my next posting entitled ” Simple and effective stress level test”

好可爱,真的太像了! So cute, really look-alike!

不要问我这是谁,只是有人寄这照片给我,我觉得好可爱,就登出给你们看。。。
Don’t ask me who this is, just that someone sent me the photo and I thought it’s really cute, so I share it with you here…

他们真的太像了,哈哈。。。
Look, they are so alike, haha…

遇到“娘家”的俊贤(宋逸民)。。。 Met Taiwanese Hokkien series actor…

三月初我们到印尼雅加达布道,4日(星期四)晚上有空档,我们就去参加另一场布道,在那里遇见也认识了台湾著名双胞兄弟电视演员宋逸民和宋达民。。。
Early March we went to Jakarta for evangelistic concerts, on the 4th (Thur) evening we were free, so we attended the concert of another team, there we met and got to know famous Taiwanese TV actors, twin brothers, Song Yi Min and Song Da Min…

两兄弟都长得高高帅帅,有点像我们自己的双胞胎兄弟 David and Danny Q…
(从右)宋逸民、达民、义忠,和名GoodTV主持,寇绍恩牧师。。。
Both brothers are tall and handsome, quite similar to our own twins D&D…
(From right) Song Yi Min, Da Min, Yi Zhong, and GoodTV host Pastor Kou Shao En…

他们都有很好的见证,我们彼此代祷祝福。。。
They all have very good testimonies, we prayed for and blessed each other…

当天例外人也在场,又是田圣没在。。。
The Remnant were there too that day, again Daniel was absent…

过后大家都挤进来了。。。
After that all squeezed in…

有机会会请他们来我们教会分享。。。
If we have a chance, will invite them to share in our church…

孙燕姿、例外人和我。。。 Stefanie Sun, The Remnant and I…

唉,看来只看鞋子,没看到人,大家都很不满意。。。好,没关系,真的要谢谢燕姿,“救”了我们一把,因为除了毫不吝啬的给我们,特别是例外人很多宝贵的意见之外,她也非常大方的让我们一个一个与她合照。。。

我们其实在上星期三(3月24日)就已在录音室与她见面,而且那时她也与我们有长时间的交谈,还一起喝下午茶。。。当天没拍照因燕姿说她没打扮,不好意思拍;但我们都觉得她没打扮其实也挺好看的,然而我们当然得尊重她的意见。。。我想她也看得出大家有点失望,然后超乎大家想象的,她竟然自己建议说 “礼拜五吧,礼拜五我会化好装和你们一起拍照。。。”

她的诚恳和“亲民”风度真叫我们大跌眼镜!我想这是她那么成功的其中一个原因吧,没有一点架子,贵为“天后级”歌手却还给人那么亲切谦卑的感觉。。。这是很值得学习的,愿神大大的记念和赐福予她!

但星期五很惭愧,因我们被邀到新加坡品牌Bodynits 的工厂挑选一些他们赞助我们的服装,结果我们时间计算不好而迟到让燕姿等上半个小时!
在车里还没抵达录音室时,我心里一直自责,觉得我们太得寸进尺,对她不够尊敬。。。所以也祷告求主赦免,让她不要因此就先回家,我们也就此失去这难得的友情。。。

一抵达我就冲进录音室,欣慰看到她鞋子还在鞋架上。。。一开门就马上跟她道歉,没想到她竟然还带着甜美笑容说“没关系,不要紧的”。。。见到大伙儿时她还说“看,我今天特别打扮等你们来拍照了!”。。。

告诉我,你能不喜欢她吗。。。?

Sigh, looks like people are not satisfied seeing only the shoes and not the person… Alright, no problem, really have to thank Stefanie for “saving” us this time as she not only generously gave us, especially The Remnant a lot of precious advice, she also very willingly took pictures with us one by one…

We actually already met her in the studio last Wednesday (Mar 24th), and she had a long talk with us then and we had afternoon tea together… we did not take any picture that day as Stef said she did not put on any make-up, actually we all thought she still looked nice without make-up on but we had to respect her decision… I think she could tell that we were a bit disappointed, then beyond our expectation, she herself suggested and said ” Friday, Friday I’ll specially put on make-up to take pictures with you guys…”

Her sincerity and down-to-earth attitude really surprised us! I think this must be one of the reasons as to why she is so successful, no air, and being a “diva” she is still so approachable and humble… This is something worth learning, may God remember and bless her abundantly!

But we felt quite ashamed on Friday, as we were also invited to Singapore brand Bodynits’ factory to choose some clothes they sponsored us, we did not plan the time well and Stefanie had to wait for us for more than half an hour as we came late!
While in the car before arriving at the studio, I was blaming myself in my heart, feeling that we were really taking things for granted that we did not show her enough respect… so I prayed in the car for God’s mercy that she would not just leave and we therefore lost such an unusual friendship…

Upon arrival at the studio, I rushed in and was glad to see her “shoes” still on the shelf… as soon as I opened the door, I apologised to her, unexpectedly she was still smiling sweetly and said, “it’s ok, don’t worry”… and when she saw all the others, she even said, “Look, I have put on make-up today specially to take pictures with you all as promised…”

Tell me, won’t you just like her…?

星期五与燕姿拍照唯一的遗憾是当天早上田圣一早就已先飞回古晋上班了,但为了证明田圣确实也有在场领受燕姿的劝导,就放一张星期三田圣在录音室的照片。。。
The only regret about taking photos with Stef on Friday was Daniel had left early that morning to fly back to Kuching for work, but to prove that he was actually there too on Wednesday to listen to Stefanie’s guidance and advice, I’m showing you here his picture taken in the studio on Wednesday…

那天星期三燕姿不拍,所以大家自己拍。。。这是祖的办公室。。。
On Wednesday, Stef was not ready, so we took picture of ourselves, this is Jaydon’s office…

以下就是你们想看的照片了。。。我们和燕姿。。。
The following photos are what you want to see… Stefanie and us…

有没有注意到丘历很适合当艺人,很会抢位,站在大家最前面。。。
Notice Danny is really suitable to be a “star” as he knows how to snatch the best spot, standing very right in front of all of us…

后来制作人兼燕姿演唱会音乐总监加进来,丘历还是持守他的位子,我就被挤到最后面了,不适合当艺人,哈哈。。。
Later, Kenn the producer cum Stefanie’s concert music director joined in, Danny stood firm in his spot while I was squeezed right to the back, not suitable to be a “star”, haha…

现在是个人照的时间。。。“天后”和牧师。。。
Now it is individual moment… “diva” and pastor…

燕姿和丘历,身高很均衡。。。
Danny and Stef, heights very balanced…

天啊,看阿保的感染力!
My goodness, look at Rambo’s influence!

一看就知道燕姿最疼团长祖了。。。
Can tell Stef’s favourite is band leader Jaydon…

嗯。。。这张是我代替田圣拍的。。。
Err… this one I took on behalf of Daniel…

咦?怎么来了一位不速之客,香港艺人曾志伟?他让燕姿感觉好瘦。。。
Huh? Who is this intruder? Hong Kong actor Zeng Zhi Wei? He makes Stef looks really thin…
