Sr Roseling

... Novice Roseling Siaw Chen...

My life is always on the run. I just finished my Theater Arts classes in Manila two days ago. We have been away from our Novitiate House since April 15, 2009. We had our 15 days Summer Mission in outstation, then went to Manila for our Pauline Month talks and classes. Now, I am in Lipa City Novitiate House.

This is her invitation to her First Religious Profession in Lipa City on June 30, 2009.

I wish I could be there but not able to...

This is a happy moment as I recall Sr Sylvia, FSP requested me to sponsor Roseling to the Philippines for her religious vocation. I met her before she left for Philippines and promised to pray for her until she takes her FINAL Profession, that was a promise of 12 years' prayers!

May God bless her and fill her with His love always.

Like going to the Gunong Gading and Sematan Trip, really good. Thanks to Uncle Harry, Keith, Aunty Faith/Uncle George, Aunty Linda/Uncle Shenton, and the children of course. Good to have healthy activities like this, promote deep friendship and bonding too...
To build strong Faith Foundation, we need to go well beyond the text book and the class room. The LSS, the Youth Gatherings, the Mt Singai Summit, Mt Hosana, Christmas Carolling etc. Daily prayer too, of course, and don't forget the ROSARY, very important. The Rosary is The Weapon against all evils.

Every now and then, we encountered a movie made with Christian Values... Here is one ("FIREPROOF") addressing common problems faced by most marriages - lack of respect, selfish, lust, work... finally Christ entered the Scene, and the marriage is saved. Worth watching, and a lot to learn, especially those encountering marriage difficulties.
Something to take home - Jesus set a very high standard: Hatred = Murder, Lust = Adultery.

Through The Eyes Of A Cradle Catholic

A surprise on Good Friday yesterday!

I receive emails from CIMB everyday but this one from CIMB Wealth Advisors-Hazel Ong is new to me... Anyway Hazel attended the Men's Conference GROWING IN HOLINESS by Patrick Madrid in Miri 7-8 March 2009 of which I also attended together with valentine harry.

The Seminar is really good, I bought many books and some DVD, which will take me many months to digest.

MAMA MIA! the Movie. Nowadays we seldom go to cinema to watch movies, however, this MAMA MIA movie is in town, so last night (28/10/08) we went to Star Cineplex to watch the movie, actually we had watched a LIVE PERFORMANCE in Melbourne 3 years ago on our 25th Wedding Anniversary (a gift from our children)... After we watched the movie, we both agree that the live show is much better than the movie, anyway we enjoyed lots of ABBA songs...One funny thing about the Star Cineplex is the pricing of the tickets - Male audience pays RM2 more than Female audience :) Adult-M $8, Adult-F $6.

Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast as an independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island. Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the daughter she's raised alone. On a quest to find her father to walk her down the aisle, Sophie brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Based on the smash hit musical seen by over 30 million people worldwide with a gross to date of US$2 billion. It is set to songs by popular '70s group ABBA.

17 and 5 Months Pregnant

Bristol Palin is 17 and she is 5 months pregnant, unmarried!

No, she is not carrying her own baby in the above photo, she is carrying her younger brother! But soon she will be carrying her own baby in her arms. A mother at the tender age of 17... over here in Malaysia, she should be studying Form 5 and sitting for SPM exams in 2 months' time!
What has become of our society nowadays? What is our moral value?... Sex is not a verb, it is a noun... and Love is a Decision, a life long Decision... When we get married, we are given a gift, it is called Making Love, it is a sacred act meant for husband and wife only.

From NBC's Mark Murray

Reuters: "The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, McCain aides said. 'We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,' the Palins' statement said. 'Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support,' the Palins said."
