大熱門高偉宏沒進入決賽??? Hot favourite David Koh not in the final???

_MG_4134

可靠消息称,大热门“琴与炉”的作者高大团长,被亲切称为“红哥”的高伟宏,,少年人最爱最支持的高大团长,没有进入决赛!!!
这消息可靠吗?据说他是被迫退赛的其中一名!被迫退赛的原因很简单,怕他太红,威胁了主办单位幕后老板的地位!
这幕后老板又是谁,抱歉这不方便透露。。。

Reliable sources say the hot favourite, writer of “The harp and the censer” mighty leader Koh, dearly called Brother Red, the most loved and supported leader of the youths is not in the final!!!
Is this information reliable? According to the source, he is Koh is said to be one of the two forced to withdraw from the competition! The reason is simple, for fear that he might become too “red” (popular) thus threatening the position of the boss behind this competition!
As for who this boss behind the scene is, sorry it is not convenient to reveal…

记者有企图联络红哥要证实此惊人消息,但他手机没开,他两个女儿高宁和高静也拒绝回答任何问题。。。
我们怀疑很可能他伤心过度避谈此事,或者被下令封口!

Our reporter attempted to contact Brother Red to confirm this shocking news but his mobile phone is not on and both his daughters, Laetitia and Trixie refused to answer any question too…
We suspect he must be devastated by this and avoid talking about this topic or he has been ordered to shut his mouth!

_MG_4142

另,也有消息指,另一名被迫退赛的准决赛选手是志恒,外号“恨你脏”,原因是他长得太像周星驰和林志颖的混合体,若他进入决赛会模糊焦点!
但记者不敢联络恨你脏,因他不喜欢接电话,怕被他骂。。。我们会从他女儿绿卡那边探听消息~

Besides, there is another news saying the other confirmed finalist being forced to withdraw is Henry Chong, nicknamed iGeek, reason being he really resembles the mix of Stephen Chow and Jeremy Lin Zhi Ying, if he is in, he will become a major distraction of the competition!
Our reporter dared not call him for fear that we might get scolded as he does not like to answer calls… but we will try to extract information from his daughter, Ricca~

_MG_3859

这次比赛真是一波未平一波又起,太多流言和假设。。。
或者难道赛事未比赛已有结果?
难道写“我们唱得很大声”的那个”饥民“是内定冠军?

This competition really suffers onslaught after onslaught, so many rumours and assumptions…
Or perhaps the competition results are already know before the competition even starts?
Or may be they have already fixed the guy who wrote “We sing loud”, Skinny Meng as the champion?

_MG_3597

这一大堆负面消息会不会影响收视率?少年人会不会全体杯葛这场大决赛?
一连续突发事件让主办单位措手不及,还是他们一手促成???

台下到底看到什么。。。? What do they see down there…?

常常在台上又讲、又演、又唱。。。认真尽力和投入,可是台下的人到底看到什么?
脑子里想的又是什么?有时候我在想。。。
Often speaking, acting and singing on stage… seriously making great effort and very into it, but what do people down there actually see?
And what are they thinking in their mind? Sometimes I wonder…

 

说真的,我会从头到脚好好预备自己。。。
Honestly, I would prepare myself properly from head to toes…

 

也会好好练我的歌,背歌词等等。。。
唱歌时也很投入,你看照片就会赞成,哈哈。。。
I will also practise my songs well, memorize the lyrics etc…
And when I sing, I am very into it, look at the photos and you would agree, haha…

 

啊~啊~啊~~~嘴巴越张越大,完全进入忘我境界~~~
Ah~ ahh~ ahhh~~~ and the mouth gets wider and wider, totally immersed and lost in my own world~~~

 

所以你绝对不能说我不认真。。。
So you definitely can’t say I’m not serious…

 

不止唱歌,讲故事也一样认真与投入!
Not just singing, but equally serious and into it while telling stories!

 

表情动作一定要配合故事内容。。。
Expressions and actions must flow with the story…

 

然后越讲越兴奋就忘记形象了。。。
Then getting more and more excited and forgetting image…

 

这么用心良苦,台下的人懂吗。。。?
Making such effort, do people down there appreciate…?

 

哎呀,管不了那么多啦!只要尽力做好本分,上帝看得见就好了。。。
Sigh, can’t  bother too much! As long as doing my best, and God can see it, that is enough…

 

主啊,就让我一直为你讲、为你演、为你唱吧。。。
O Lord, just let me continue to speak, act and sing just for You…

 

如果我是驾驶员。。。 If I were a driver…

眨看这公车,你可能没觉得什么特别,可你越靠近,再加上有观察力的话,就会看到有趣的东西。。。

At a glance, this bus does not appear to have anything special, but if you get closer and if you are observant, you would notice something interesting…

 

那些眼力好,自认很有观察力,而且不能被挑战的一定很努力在看了,哈哈。。。
有没有看到什么啊?要不要我再靠近一点?
好吧,我们再靠近巴士车一点吧。。。

Those with good eye-sight and full of the confidence that you are very observant, and cannot stand any challenge, must be watching very closely now, haha…
So have you noticed anything? Shall we get closer?
Ok, let’s get closer to the bus…

 

哇,现在太明显了。。。
什么?有些人还没看到什么东西??
那就再靠近一点。。。

Now, that is very obvious…
What? Some still have not noticed anything??
Then let’s get even closer…

 

若还是看不清楚,那我就冒险更靠近一点,但这样靠近也太危险了吧。。。
看到了没有?知道驾驶员是谁吗?哈哈。。。

If still not clear, then let me take a big risk to get closer, but it is really dangerous to be so close…
Saw it? Know who the driver is? Haha…
( For those who don’t read Chinese, on the lower right is written the bus driver’s name, and that’s my name!! )

 

 

哈哈哈。。。这是我一位很特别的朋友在台湾公路拍到的。。。
很巧吧?
我在想,我这朋友看到时有什么感觉和感想或感动。。。?
神有没有说什么?哈哈!

Hahaha… this picture was taken by a very special friend on the highway in Taiwan…
Such a coincidence, right?
Am thinking, upon seeing this, what went through my friend’s thought, feeling and heart…?
Did God say anything? Haha!

 

有时候人真的是同名不同命。。。
我不是公车司机,但我却是灵魂的司机。。。
但愿我能把每个搭乘我的列车的灵魂载到最闪亮光明及快乐的地方。。。

Sometimes really, people can have the same name but totally different lives…
I am not a bus driver, but I am a driver of souls…
May I be able to bring every soul who gets on my bus to the brightest and happiest place ever…

黑是“man”,白是“娘”? Dark is “macho” and fair is “feminine”?

真的,随着时代的改变,人的观念、品味、偏好等等很可能也会随之改变。。。
记得在我中学,甚至大学那些年代,皮肤白皙的男生总会给人一种很娘或很弱的感觉。
所以,当时我是故意把自己晒得黑黑,甚至有时候故意穿着短裤和背心,在中午十二点烈日之下把自己晒黑!

It is true, as time changes, people’s values, tastes, preferences etc may change along with time too…
I remember during my high school or even university years, guys with fair skin gave the impression of femininity or weakness. So during that period of time, I often went under the sun to get my skin tanned severely on purpose. Sometimes I would even purposely go under the sun at 12 noon in shorts and singlet to make myself dark!

再加上到纽西兰留学时,洋人又特别喜欢我们那种被太阳“烧焦”的古铜色,而他们却偏偏晒不成那种颜色,所以我就喜欢让洋人看到我的很阳光和“健康美丽”的肤色。。。

Furthermore when I was studying in New Zealand, the Caucasians somehow liked our scorched copper tone colour as they could never get that colour no matter how long they spent under the sun. So I loved to let the whites see my very sunshine, “healthy and beautiful” skin colour…

当有人说我很黑时,我听了是很高兴;尽管他们不是赞赏,而是很负面的觉得我太黑不好看,我依然感觉他们是在称赞我。就如同现今很多人若被讲“太瘦”,听起来都不会被得罪,还会觉得很高兴一样,哈哈!

反之,在那个时代若有人讲我皮肤很白,我会很不舒服和尴尬,觉得他们是在讥笑我“娘”。。。。

If anyone commented that I was really dark, I would feel very happy even if they were actually saying it negatively as a criticism that I did not look nice because I was too dark, I would still feel that it was a compliment. This is quite similar to now when some people say you are “too thin”, you would not feel offended no matter how, and still feel happy, haha!

Conversely, during that period of time, if anyone had said that my skin colour was very fair, I would have felt very embarrassed and awkward feeling that they were criticizing me for being feminine…

 

说真的,我也不太清楚我的皮肤到底是“黑底”,还是“白底”。。。你们觉得呢?
Honestly, I am not very sure whether my original skin colour was more on the dark or fair side… what do you guys think?

 

可是现在时代改变了,男孩子皮肤很白早已经被接受,而且很多男生都刻意要使肌肤变白,被人讲白也不会感觉羞耻,还会很高兴。。。除了审美观、品味、思想改变之外,这也由于知识上晓得过份被烈日曝晒对皮肤也不好。

皮肤或黑或白,没有对错,只是个人偏好、文化、观点等等,这种观念可随着时代的变化而改变,以前不被接受的现在被接受,以前认为是不对的,现在认为并没什么问题。这种例子包括:妻子也上班啦、男人也可以洗衣煮饭啦、穿牛仔裤啦、染发啦等等(以前我是反对染发的,哈哈!)。。。

But nowadays time has changed, people readily accept guys with fair skin and many guys try to make their skin fairer on purpose, and guys would not feel embarrassed but instead feel happy when people comment they look fair…
Apart from the change of beauty views, tastes and thinking, of course the knowledge of direct exposure to the scorching sun is unhealthy for the skin is also a factor to this change…

There is no right or wrong whether your skin is dark or fair, it is just a matter of preferences, culture or opinions etc. This kind of thinking can change with time. What were not accepted before can be accepted now, what were considered as wrong before may not be any issue now. Some examples are: wives are allowed to have a career too, men can also cook and do the washing, wearing jeans, dyeing hair etc (I used to oppose dyeing of hair, haha!)…

 

我本身认为有一些东西是中立的,没有对错之分,只是时代改变,随着知识和思想的进步,有一些东西是可以被接受为正常和没问题的,只要不冲突到真理和神的原则。

然而,我的立场是有一些东西是永远都要持守的,不管时代怎样变迁,只要是神的话明确不赞成的,我们就不能妥协,譬如婚前性关系、色情文化等等。。。这些都有明显上帝准则,对错与黑白分明,无论社会进展到什么地步,我们都不能抛弃这些价值观。。。你赞成吗?

Personally I feel certain things are neutral, there is no right or wrong. As time changes, knowledge and thinking advance, certain things can be accepted as normal and alright, as long as they do not conflict with God’s Truth and principles.

However my stand is there are things we have to safeguard forever, no matter how time has changed, as long as the Word of God clearly disapproves, then we must not compromise, such as premarital sex, pornographic culture etc… All these have clear standards from God, telling you whether it is right or wrong, and black and white clearly spelled out. So, no matter how advanced society is, we must not abandon these values still… do you agree?

 

 

去机场,车坏了!(你们错了!) Car broke down on the way to the airport! (You are wrong!)

故事延伸于我在 Facebook 放的照片。。。说我没拿东西?哈哈,抱歉,你们错了。。。
The story expands from the photo I posted on my Facebook… You said I did not carry a thing? Haha, sorry, you are wrong…

话说从头。。。
那天我要离开台北,寒冷的冬天下着冰冷的雨,充分表达了我那时候的部分心情。。。
我在客厅独自坐着等朋友来载我,例外人都各自忙着他们的事情。。。
Let’s start at the very beginning…
I was leaving Taipei that day, it was pouring down with cold rain on that chilly winter day, fully expressing part of my feeling at that moment…
I was waiting for my friend to come and fetch me all alone in the lounge, Remnant were all busy doing their own things…

其实有人已经帮我叫了宾士计程车送我去机场,但最近认识的生死之交(我自己讲的)冠劭,自告奋勇的说愿意自己开车来送我。。。
Actually someone had already arranged for a Benz cab to send me to the airport, but my recently met buddy, Fasaw, eagerly volunteered to drive me to the airport in his car instead…

我很感动他那么乐意专程拿假送我,从台北到桃园机场也要大概一个小时。。。
许惠美牧师也跟着来。。。我们一路聊得很愉快,但就在要抵达机场时,许牧师突然说“怎么了?”。。。我都还没察觉有问题,车子就停下来了!
感谢主,只剩下一小段路程。。。我们几个就赶紧冒着冬雨,把行李拿出来,又拖又拿的半跑半走向机场,而冠劭留下照顾他的车子。。。

我就拍下几张照片留念。。。所以故事才会开始,因为有些人看了以下这张照片就“诬告“我很轻松什么都没拿!
其实,你若再很注意的再看这张照片,你会注意到我右肩上有吊着一条手提包的袋子;我后面有两个人,前面一个是可怜的许牧师拿着自己的手提袋,最后面那一个是例外人,拖着我最重和最大的行李箱。。。
现在我们的游戏正式开始!

I was very touched that he took leave specially to send me, the distance from Taipei to Taoyuan airport is about one hour…
Pastor Amy came along as well… we were chatting very happily along the way, but when we were about to reach the airport, Pastor Amy suddenly said,”What happened?”… Before I realized anything, the car stopped!
Thank God there was only a short distance left… So the few of us quickly risked the winter rain, took out all my luggages, half-carrying and half-dragging and half-running towards the airport while Fasaw attended to his troubled car…

So I took some pictures for remembrance… That’s how the story started, because looking at the photo below, some “accused” me of being very relaxed not carrying anything at all!
In actual fact, if you look closely at this photo again, you would notice a handbag strap on my right shoulder; there were two people behind me, one was our poor Pastor Amy carrying her own handbag, and the one behind was one of The Remnant pulling my heaviest and biggest luggage…
Now our game officially starts here!

问题(1)请问最后面那位拖着我大行李的例外人是谁?
Question (1) Who is that Remnant pulling my big luggage behind?

我前面有两个例外人。。。但,咦?下面这张照片里怎么只看到一个人??
原来其中一个只喊了一声“很冷!”,就飞箭似的奔向飞机场,丢下我们,什么也不拿。。。
问题(2)那个自己跑走的例外人是谁?
问题(3)照片里在我前面乖乖帮我拿小行李,还时而回头看我怎么样的例外人是谁?

There were two Remnant in front of me… but huh? How come we only see one person in the photo below??
Oh, because one of them just cried out,” Very cold!” and with the speed of lightning, he ran towards the airport without carrying anything, leaving us all behind…
Question (2) Who was that Remnant who ran off all by himself?
Question (3) Who is that Remnant you see walking in front of me in the photo, helpfully carrying my smaller luggage and also looking back to check on me every now and then?

咦?算来算去,还是不太对。。。好像还少了一个!
哈哈哈。。。
问题(4)还有一个是谁?他在哪里?为什么?

Eh? Something is still not right after counting… seems like one is missing!
Hahaha…
Question (4) Who is the other one? Where was he? Why?

还记得祖去年的生日故事吗? Remember Jaydon’s birthday story last year?

不知不觉又是十月16日,一年又过去了,又是祖的生日!去年他在新加坡,以下是去年登过的祖生日惊喜的故事,让你们“重温”我伟大的爱,哈哈!
但今年他人在台湾了,我又为他做什么呢?。。。你们可以问他啊,哈哈!!

Before you realized, it is Oct 16th again, one year has passed and it is Jaydon’s birthday again! He was in Singapore last year, the following is the story I published last year concerning his birthday surprise so you can “recollect” how great my love is, haha!
But now he is in Taiwan, and what did I do for him this time?… well, you can always ask him, haha!


去年的故事。。。(炒冷饭,哈哈!)/  Last year’s story… (eating leftover, haha!)

最近因太忙碌,加上英语说的” out of sight,out of mind ” ( 简翻:没在这里,就忘记你 ),所以差一点把祖的生日给忘了。。。一直到生日前两天才惊觉什么都没给他计划或准备!

一下子也想不出该送他什么,就想既然最近很多廉价机票,可能我该飞去新加坡一天再回来,给他一个惊喜。。。

同工晓薇非常鼓励我去(可能牧师没在比较没压力),就决定买祖生日当天16日的机票飞过去。。。

我就事先联络新加坡另一个也跟我一样疯的牧师帮我调查祖那天的行踪和活动,千交待、万交待不许让任何人知道我要过来,因多一个人知道,就多一个秘密泄露的机会。。。我不想白费心机和飞机票的钱。。。

古晋方面就只有我的同工晓薇知道,她绝对不会泄露秘密因为她珍惜生命;另一个人是例外人田圣,是他送我去机场,他也绝对不会泄露秘密,因为他是一个很懒惰开口的人。。。

抵达新加坡已是晚上8点15分,我的疯狂好友李牧师,已在机场等我,一副007很专业的样子告诉我已查到祖的行踪。。。他跟一些朋友在某咖啡厅庆祝,我们就开车前往。。。

从咖啡厅外面我已清楚看到祖跟朋友们有说有笑。。。很好,一切都照着剧本跑。。。

祖就坐在柜台前的位子,面向柜台。。。我装作平凡顾客很自然的走向柜台跟招待员说话。。。祖觉得这人背影怎么那么像他的牧师,就一直注视着我看;他终于受不了就走到柜台我旁边要看个清楚,他突然间大喊:牧师!你怎么会在这里?!

跟 我讲话的招待员都吓得跳起来,哈哈!我却无动于衷,以一口美国腔英语很冷静的对他说:Excuse me, do I know you? I think you must have mistaken me for someone… (译: 对不起,我认识你吗?我看你认错人了。。。)

可是当然祖很确定就是我,就不放过我说:牧师,不要闹了!你怎么会在这里?!

此时我突然间唱:祝你生日快乐~。。。

因为那一整天我都没联络他,故意不给他简讯祝贺等,所以他突然紧紧的抱着我说:我以为你已经忘记我的生日了。。。说罢就哭了起来!我的肩膀都被他眼泪滴湿了。。。

是不是很感动?

啊!算了吧!那是原本的剧本!事实是有些人就是不会跟着剧本跑!!!所以那根本都不是祖的反应!!!

那祖真正的反应又是什么?

Because I have been very busy recently, plus “out of sight, out of mind”, so I almost forgot about Jaydon’s birthday… until two days before then I realised I hadn’t prepared or planned anything for him!

All of a sudden I couldn’t think of what to give him as a present, so I thought since there are so many budget air tickets nowadays, perhaps I should just fly over to Singapore for a day to surprise him…

My staff, Xiao Wei greatly encouraged me to do so ( may be less pressure if pastor isn’t around ), so I decided to buy the ticket for the 16th, Jaydon’s actual birthday to fly over…

I contacted a Singaporean pastor who is as crazy as me to help me track down Jaydon’s whereabout and activities that day, reminding him millions of times not to let anyone know I was coming, because an additional person knowing means additional risk of secret being leaked… I don’t wish to waste my effort and air tickets money…

In Kuching, only my staff, Xiao Wei knew, she would never leak it to anyone as she treasures her life; another person who knew was Remnant Daniel, he sent me to the airport, he would definitely keep the secret too ‘cos he is a person just too lazy to open his mouth…

I arrived at Singapore at about 8:15pm, my crazy good friend, Pastor Lee was already at the airport waiting for me, looking like a very pro James Bond, he told me he had tracked down Jaydon’s whereabout… he was celebrating with a few friends in a coffee bar, so we drove towards there…

From outside the coffee bar I could see Jaydon clearly, talking and laughing with his friends… very good, everything went according to our script…

Jaydon was sitting right in front of the counter, facing the counter… I acted like a normal customer walking very naturally to the counter to talk to the waiter… Jaydon noticed this person’s back somehow seemed so similar to his pastor’s, so he kept staring at me; finally he couldn’t resist it so he came towards me to have a good look, and he suddenly exclaimed very loudly: Pastor! Why are you here?!

The waiter talking to me jumped with fright, haha! But I was indifferent, and said to him calmly with American accent: Excuse me, do I know you? I think you must have mistaken me for someone else…

But of course Jaydon was very certain it was me, so he didn’t retreat and said: Come on, pastor, stop pretending! Why are you here?!

At that moment, I suddenly sang: Happy birthday to you~…

Because that whole day I did not contact him at all, and I purposely did not send him any greeting etc, so he suddenly held me very tightly and said: I thought you have forgotten it’s my birthday today… at that he broke down and cried and wet my shoulders…

Isn’t that very touching?

Arrgh! Forget it! That was supposed to be the original script! The truth is, some people just won’t follow the script!!! So that was not Jaydon’s reaction at all!!!

Then what was Jaydon’s actual reaction?

“从咖啡厅外面我已清楚看到祖跟朋友们有说有笑。。。很好,一切都照着剧本跑。。。祖就坐在柜台前的位子,面向柜台。。。我装作平凡顾客很自然的走向柜台跟招待员说话。。。”。。。这一切都是真的!

过后祖就没照剧本跑了!就从这里说起吧。。。

我心里超紧张,心跳加速,因为我就站在他眼前,可是还好他还没看上来,我还有戏要演。。。

可 是我却注意到一件事情,祖的朋友都看见我了,他们也认识我,可是竟然没有一个有惊讶的眼神!后来才知道除了祖之外,他们都知道我会来!!!天啊, 不是说好不能让人知道的吗?007李牧师解释说一定要让其中一位知道才能知道他们在哪里啊。。。但他说那一位答应说绝不会让其他人知道的,后来其他人告诉 我他都让他们知道了!!唉,人啊。。。

没关系,至少祖还不知道!我就继续演。。。站在柜台前,招待员问我要什么,我也没回答,因一直专注从镜子的倒影看祖的反应。。。

他看上来了!又看下去继续跟朋友聊天。。。又看上来了!又看下去跟朋友聊天了!!

招待员又问了:先生,请问我能帮你吗?

我:嗯。。。我要喝咖啡。。。

招待员:要带走吗,还是在这里喝?

我:嗯。。。这里,这里。。。

招待员:那请你找个位子坐下来好吗?

我就在祖面前摇摇摆摆一下,还是没看上来!我开始有点火了。。。

但专业演员不能让心情影响演技,我还要好好演下去。。。就走到祖右边的桌子面向他坐下来。。。他还是没看过来!

我想了想,没办法了,一定要临时改写剧本!还好我们临场经验很足,就发了一则简讯给他说:“我们教会某个弟兄说现在在咖啡厅看到你,我想你可能会认识他,请朝你右边看。。。”

简讯发了,我为我的随机应变献上感恩!新的剧本让我又开始紧张起来了。。。我就拿了菜单遮住我一半的脸孔,好让他看过来时很好奇菜单遮住的是谁的脸孔。。。是不是觉得我很会制造气氛?

我的手越来越酸了。。。至少五分钟都过去了,招待员都不理我了,我还在等祖的反应。。。
终于受不了了,把菜单放下,他还在跟朋友有说有笑!因为他的电话”silent mode” (静音),不知道有简讯进来!我真气炸了!

但你们都知道我就像打不死的蟑螂,再改写剧本!

我就浩浩荡荡又走向柜台,此时祖的朋友都已经为我感到有点尴尬了,可想我感觉有多糗啊!

这一次我甚至很大方的跟祖同桌的人讲话!他也没察觉我的存在!

结果没办法,他们说要谢饭祷告了,大家闭起眼睛,他们就赶紧叫我坐在祖的正对面,开眼睛时他不可能不会看到我了!

这就是你们每个人等待的一幕戏。。。祖真正的反应!!

祷告完毕,大家说:阿们!

祖看上来了。。。我正视着他。。。他看着我。。。眼神很困惑。。。看着我。。。眼神很困惑。。。终于说话了。。。

语气很平常,毫无一丝兴奋和惊讶的成份,淡淡且呆呆的说:你为什么会在这里?

就这样!!是的,就这样!!

此时,我有冲动再改写剧本,写一部暴力版的,一拳打过去!但顾及到我是牧师的形象,这种戏我不能演,所以就罢了。。。

可是说真的,一般上善于应对的我此时也认输了,我也不会反应,不知要说什么,不知接下来要做什么,因为离原来的剧本太远、太远了。。。

哦,对了!我们忘了另外一位主角,载我来的007李牧师,这一段时间他都在哪里呢?原来那么长的一段时间,他还躲在外面,因为他从外面看进来,完全看不懂里面在演什么戏,所以不敢进来!哈哈哈,太好笑了!(他的脸本来长得都已很滑稽了,请看以下照片。。。)

如果你们是我,你们会有什么反应?说真的,我当时里面真的很不舒服,觉得一点意思都没有,哪有人这样迟钝的?在他面前晃了老半天,竟然一点都没察觉你的存在!真浪费我的苦心、机票、时间、精神。。。

但没办法,有一些人就是呆呆的,不能要求每个人像我一样。。。唉!

这就是祖的反应,满意吗?相信很多认识他的人会很认同这确实是他的反应。。。

“From outside the coffee bar I could see Jaydon clearly, talking and laughing with his friends… very good, everything went according to our script… Jaydon was sitting right in front of the counter, facing the counter… I acted like a normal customer walking very naturally to the counter to talk to the waiter…” all these are true!

But after that Jaydon did not follow the script anymore! So let’s continue the story from here…

My heart was pounding fast, feeling nervous because I was standing right in front of him, but thank goodness he did not look up as yet, I still had some parts to act…

But I noticed one thing, Jaydon’s friends all saw me, and they all know me too but none was surprised at all! Later I was told apart from Jaydon, they all knew I was coming!!! My goodness! I thought this was supposed to be a top secret? Pastor James Bond Lee explained that he must let one of them know then he could find out where they were going… But he said that one person had promised he would not let the others know, later the others told me that person did let all of them know!! Sigh, human…

Oh well, at least Jaydon still did not know! So I continued to act… Standing at the counter, the waiter asked me what I wanted, I did not answer because I was concentrating on Jaydon’s reaction from the mirror’s reflection…

He looked up! And looked down again to talk to his friends… He looked up again! And looked down again to talk to his friends!!

The waiter asked again: Sir, can I help you?

Me: Err… I want some coffee…

Waiter: Having here or takeaway?

Me: Err… here, here…

Waiter: Then can you please find a seat to sit down?

So I started making big movements in front of Jaydon, and he still did not look up! My fire was beginning to burn…

But as a professional actor, I must not let my mood affect my acting, I must continue to perform well… I walked to the table to his right and sat down facing him… still he did not look over…

I thought, no choice, I must adapt quickly and rewrite my script! Just as well we are good at spontaneous accommodation, I sent a text message to him: “Someone from our church said he saw you in a coffee bar, I think you might know him too, look to your right…”

After sending that message, I gave thanks for my quick adjustment to crisis! The new script caused me to feel excited again… I took the menu to half-cover my face, so that when he looked over he would be very curious whose face was behind that menu… Don’t you think I’m very good at creating atmosphere?

My hands were growing tired… at least 5 minutes had passed, even the waiter ignored me now, I was still waiting for Jaydon’s reaction…
Finally I couldn’t stand it, I put down the menu, he was still talking and laughing with friends! Because his handphone was on silent mode, he did not know there was a text message coming in! I just about exploded!

But you all know that like a cockroach, I don’t die easily, write another script!

Then with even bigger movements I walked to the counter again, by now all Jaydon’s friends were already feeling a bit awkward for me, imagine how embarrassing it must have been for me!

This time I even very openly talked to the people same table with him! Yet he did not notice my existence!

Again no choice, by now they said they wanted to give thanks for the food, so everybody shut their eyes, and quickly they asked me to sit directly in front of Jaydon, so when he opened his eyes, it would be impossible that he could not see me!

This is the scene all of you have been waiting for… Jaydon’s real reaction!!

After the prayer, everybody said: Amen!

Jaydon looked up… I was staring at him… he looked at me… with puzzled eyes… he looked at me… with puzzled eyes…
finally he spoke…

With a very normal tone, not a bit of excitement or surprise element, very mildly and sheepishly said: Why are you here?

Just like that!! Yes, just like that!!

At this moment, I had the urge to write another script, a violent one, to give him a box in the face! But remembering my image as a pastor, I can’t act in such a movie, so I just let it be…

But honestly, normally someone very good at responding to unpredictable situations, this time I surrendered, I did not know how to respond, I did not know what to say, I did not know what to do next, because all this was just too far from my original script…

Oh, by the way, we have forgotten about the other actor in this movie, Pastor James Bond Lee who drove me there, where was he all this while? Well, for all that long time, he was still hiding outside because looking from outside, he could not quite follow the progress of the movie inside, so he did not dare to come in! Hahaha! That’s so hilarious! ( He naturally already has a very comical look, see photo below…)

If you were I, what reaction would you have? Honestly, at that time, I was not feeling very comfortable inside, I felt everything was so meaningless, how could a person be so dumb? Displaying myself in front of him for all that time and he did not even notice my existence! Really wasted my effort, air ticket, time, energy…

But what to do? Some people are just like that, can’t expect everyone to be like me… sigh!

This is Jaydon’s reaction, are you satisfied? I believe many who know him would agree and confirm this would be his actual reaction…

他后来有解释他为什么有这种反应:

1) 他真的无法理解我为什么会突然间出现,他没说话因为一直在想这个问题。。。(到第二天还一直问我们为什么会知道他在那边!哎哟,这种小儿科我们都搞不定,我和007李牧师还能做牧师吗?!)

2) 他那天太累了所以无法有反应。。。

3) 他感觉好像是假的或在做梦。。。

4) 我觉得这个才是最真实的:他一时无法转台,原来他也有他的剧本!因为我一整天都还没发任何祝福他生日快乐的简讯给他,他说就连某某某和某某某,跟他都不是 很亲的都会记得他的生日,怎么我竟然忘记了呢?!眼看剩下两小时半就十二点生日过了,他已气在心头一整天,已预备好在十二点发一则很不满和受伤的简讯给 我。。。哪知道令伯竟然突然间出现在他眼前!情绪一时扭转不过来。。。

唉。。。这年头牧师真的不容易当啊。。。

Later he did explain the reasons for his reaction:

1) He really could not comprehend how I could suddenly appear like that, he did not speak ‘cos he was pondering about this question all the time… ( till the next day he was still asking me how I knew where he was! Oh, come on, if we could not even handle such a minor assignment, can Pastor James Bond Lee and I still be pastors?!)

2) He was very tired that night so he could not react…

3) He felt it was unreal or he was in a dream…

4) I feel this one is the real reason: He could not switch his channel suddenly because he had his own script too! Because I did not send him any birthday greeting at all that whole day, he said even so and so, and so and so, people not so close to him could remember his birthday, how could I forget his birthday?! And only two and a half hours left to 12 midnight and his birthday would be over, he was feeling angry throughout the day already, and had already prepared to send a text message of anger and hurt to me as soon as  the clock struck twelve… But unexpectedly Uncle GT suddenly appeared in front of him! So he could not adjust to the sudden change of moods…

Sigh… it is really not easy to be a pastor nowadays…
