More MH370 Parts?

indexThe jig-saw puzzle suspense continues to build up. Another piece of potential MH370 part suddenly showed up. Unlike the previous 2-meter long debris, which is covered with some barnacles, this one appears different. No trace of prolonged submersion under sea water is evident. It looks more like a rather “brand new” part hastily dumped some 25 km away from where the first part was found(just like the other almost new part that was reported found previously, read “A Boeing 777 Part – So What?“). Now, the mystery deepens. At the rate, is not difficult to speculate that more little parts and puzzles will continue to appear in due time. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekender: A Miracle


Today is a miracle, so was yesterday, and tomorrow. Do you think it is by coincidence?


Psalm 14:1
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

A Boeing 777 Part – So What?

_84565572_8bed3b64-b5c5-44dc-9194-febe1e9b0ca6On 14 March 2014, a Malaysian Boeing 777 went missing during a MH370 flight. Mysteries surrounded that fated disappearance (read “MH370 Once More“). Theories as to why the massive airliner just vanished were abound. None could be nearer the truth. Suffice to say that official speculation was that it went off course to somewhere west of Australia. Australian Prime Ministered vowed that the search will go on until it is found. The search went silent, until yesterday. Perhaps this piece of “evidence” brings closure to this vow that may otherwise be unfulfilled. Read the rest of this entry »

Die for Drugs

imagesFor a few moments of ecstasy, young people are lured into eternal damnation. The dangers of drug abuse are well-known and understood. Yet, people risk their lives and money to do what they know is no good. Why is this so? There are many reasons. The most fundamental reason is one that many would ignore. Either because it sounds silly to them or they are too arrogant to believe. It is not drugs per se. It is the unseen power that lurks yonder. A nefarious power that snares and kills. Whether you believe it or not, it is there. All these stories of drug abuse attest to this potent and unseen power. It is not just a power, it is a being. Read the rest of this entry »

Children with No Childhood

imagesIt is so easy to take life for granted. That we are breathing is itself a miracle. To enjoy the spectacular vastness of the turquoise oceans, the warm golden sunset, the green rolling hills, …, the birds and the bees – that’s another endless list of the wonders of creation. It takes a Creator with incredible creativity to cause all these to exist. They are given to us to enjoy free of charge. Along the life’s journey, we forgot these God-given beauty and splendour. We let them slip by the wayside as life slips away. We forget how to live! Read the rest of this entry »

Race to the Grave

imagesWe call it a rat race. Wikipedia describes a rat race as ” an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit. It conjures up the image of the futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape while running around a maze or in a wheel.” Beyond this futile pursuit is another subliminal race – the desire to be better than the next one. Just wanting to be with the Jones or better than the Jones provides an intense urge to make “self” the focal point of life. Striving to excel is great. But there are negative consequences when the desire turns into obsession. To some, this is how humanity thrives – the fittest survives. To others, this is the death of humanity. Dylan Selterman, a lecturer in the psychology department at the University of Maryland devised this simple challenge to a class. Read the rest of this entry »

Celebrities of Another World

11410442_378645712324202_1026451799_nWhat does it take to become famous? What would a person do to attain that celebrity status, to be adored and worshipped? In the music and entertainment industry, nothing will stop a person to sell off himself/herself to reach that pinnacle of fame and fortune. Is it worth it? Most people would probably answer negatively to this. Still, fame and glory will cause man to trade his/her soul for that temporal moment of elation and being worshipped. Behind this game of fame and fortune, an invisible hand takes control to transform the eager soul into another creature that is not quite of this world. Read the rest of this entry »

Weird Weird Yankees

IMG-20150723-WA0000Has the world gone totally bonkers? Maybe. Some societies have degenerated to a point where it is no longer recognizable as civil. The good is deemed bad and the bad is now good. Times have changed. The new generation is of the view that the oldies are not adapting quick enough to change. They are archaic, old-fashioned and out of touch – not cool. There is some truth in that, especially in the fast changing world of technology. What was once a mouse is now a gadget that looks like one but is no more than an input device to a computer. The fluffy clouds in the sky are now a collection of hardware that keep your data. Keeping up with such changes is indeed hard for the old-fashioned breed. Read the rest of this entry »
