And who said that HTC TyTN II can't be used with ONE Hand?

As you know the the HTC TyTNII comes with a built-in QWERTY Keyboard, and that is extremely useful and fast when sending messages either via SMS or Email.

But one of the BIGGEST sacrifices that i had to mentally prepare myself was that the fact i cannot send an sms with one hand!

The built in applications for HTC TyTNII comes with a Touch Screen Keyboard, Symbol Pad, Scribbler and Transcriber. So for the first 5 days of using the TyTNII i had to keep using two hands to type out smses to friends!! Very irritating if u are waiting in traffic whilst in the car (Don't drive and SMS... :)

I was really glad when Danny showed me his HTC P6300i phone that had a new application installed. After going thru the input series, found out that it was a HTC original application called HTC Phone Pad 1.0
And what the Phone Pad does is that it gives u the option of inputing text/numbers into the phone by using a keypad which is pretty similar to a typical handphone. It has a T9 dictionary and it allows u to type in words the T9 way!
The best part is that the keypad is large enough to fit my thumb and ... YES!! Whilst waiting at the Traffic Light in the car, i will have no problems typing out and sending out SMSes! :) hehe

People of Venture Series : JOSHUA - Your Jericho Will Fall!!!

Glad Tidings Young Adults Service meets regularly each Saturday at 5pm. They started a new sermon series called The People of Venture. In line with this year's Church thrust "Year of Venture", Ps Julie challenged a group of lay people to share their hearts based on different Bible Characters who formed this People of Venture.

The journey started off with Kenneth preaching on Abraham, then by Kim-Ann preaching on Queen Esther, followed by Shahnon & Hwee Yen preaching on Jeremiah and most recently Sean & Leroy on Ezekiel!!

As you can see we had great preachers ahead of us, so when Ps Gwen, Jon Koo and I were grouped together to do Joshua .... it was like ... Oh no!! How ler? What will we say and do? Ps Gwen was the overseer ... and it was basically Jon & I that had to share something from our hearts. (I was thinking i can always share my arteries!!)

First of all when any of the three of us hold mics, we automatically close our eyes and worship (yeah we sort of serve in the worship ministry). So contrary to leading people into the presence of God in worship, how will Jon and I be able to talk for 30 mins non stop and with our eyes opened and hope that a "message" is carried forward?

Weeks leading up to the launch of the People Of Venture, during a Saturday evening - the African Nite itself, the ministry team was already preparing the church for the weeks to come. See how each of the People of Venture stood with their message. (pics courtesy of the-reflector)

So you can imagine the expectation of each church goer of the Young Adults service!! Doesn't this put makes you pray more and get on your knees more??? It sure does! :)

So we prayed and ask God to tell us what can we share? The three of us discussed what we wanted to share on one Sunday afternoon. Ps Gwen helped ensure that we were on the proper path so that we didnt stray. AND of course Jon is already in BCM, so that was a big advantage for us .... yeah soon he will be licensed to Preach!! :)

So all of this lead us to the Big Day on 8 December 2007, where we shared our hearts out on JOSHUA - Your Jericho Will Fall.

Here's a synopsis of what we did. Watch the video below, Download the powerpoint if u wanna.

the intro
Jon & I decided to have some fun with our Intro, and we called it JOSHUA by NUMB3RS! We basically took different numbers in the life of Joshua and used it as an ice-breaker thingy to get some participation and to also tell a story with the numbers (and answers).

the story
Jon preached an awesome story on the life of Joshua from a baby to a military General. He called it Joshua Rewound, where Jon unfold the story about Joshua's birth place in Egypt, on his influences as he grew up, his mentor (Moses), his love for God and how God shaped him to be the Military General who led the Israelites to Victory!!

the challenge
Ps Gwen came up with the 4Ps of Joshua (scroll down below the video), where we inserted it into my sharing on how Joshua conquered Jericho. And, by applying these 4Ps in your life, your Wall of Jericho (ie Obstacles in Life) can be brought down and no longer be a stronghold in your life. Finally, I ended with Nathanael's testimony on how God touched Nathanael and brought down that "wall". Yups ... that was a moving story!!
[when i was practising at home on what to share, during Nathanael's testimony.... wah liau i cried so much!! So, it was a good thing when i shared it again on the Sat & Sun services .... no more tears!]
After that Ps Gwen took over and Close the Service by challenging the people further on the application of the 4Ps in their lives!! We saw God touching many lives.

This is my first experience in sharing in Church, and we have received some encouraging feedback, therefore I borrowed the video from the AV Team and have provided a low res video copy below so that u can at least visualize the sharing. ENJOY & Be Blessed!!!

4Ps of Joshua

Do you have a Jericho (a Wall/Obstacle) in front of you? What do you do?

  1. Listen to God's PLAN
  2. Claim God's PROMISE
  3. Obey God's PURPOSE
  4. Receive the Victory thru God's POWER

Delwin's Wedding Dinner at Malaysia Petroleum Club


What can i say? The MPC or aka Malaysian Petroleum Club (MPC) is one really cool place to be. First of all u need to be a member to be invited up to the 42nd Floor of the Petronas Twin Towers and to have Security Guards flanked at your right and left prior to entering MPC, wah .. quite the canggih nya!!

Before we get all caught up with the wonders of MPC, we would of course wanna say

BIG CONGRATS to Delwin & Gillian for their beautiful Wedding !!

There were two things that we could not stop looking at thru out the night.
