Sunday, Lord's Day

Was really really bored at home....

Couldn't really sleep nowadays....... It's like although I'm tired, I'll still be waking up every hour when I try to sleep every night? WHAT IS WRONG?!!! 

Sharmane said, "probably you're getting insomia?" er hopefully NO!!!
The last time when I got it, was during A-levels, where I was really stressed out on exam...... 
BUT THEN, my finals is nowhere near yet! errr, it's actually kinda near, but I'm pretty sure it's not the exam.....


Anyway, as I said...Was really bored at home, and tried to do some reading actually...but then I end up listening to some music call Messiah by George Frideric Handel...

Who is he? He's one of the most famous composer during the baroque period if I'm not mistaken.... 

Well, for those who don't know....This work of Handel, is one the best and one the most highly rated composition that he ever composed..... 

Where did the name come from?
"The Greek form Messias is a transliteration of the Hebrew, Messiah, "the anointed". The word appears only twice of the promised prince (Daniel 9:26; Psalm 2:2)"

The work is a presentation of Jesus' life and its significance according to Christian doctrine. The name of the oratorio is taken from Judaism and Christianity's concept of the Messiah. 

In Christianity, Jesus is the Messiah.

The work is divided into three parts which address specific events in the lift of Christ. Part One is primarily concerned with the Advent and Christmas stories. Part Two chronicles Christ's passion, resurrection, ascension, and the evangelization to the world of the Christian messagePart Three is based primarily upon the events chronicled in The Revelation to St. John. Although Messiah deals with the New Testament story of Christ's life, a majority of the texts used to tell the story were selected from the Old Testament prophetic books of Isaiah, as well as Haggai, Malachi, and others....

For you who still don't really know what kinda work he actually composed....
Well, one of the most famous movement is the "Hallelujah" chorus, which concludes the second of the three partsThe text is drawn from three passages in the New Testament...

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voiceof many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying,Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. (Revelation 19:6)
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. (Revelation 19:16)

In many parts of the world, it is the accepted practice for the audience to stand for this section of the performance. Tradition has it that King George II rose to his feet at this point. As the first notes of the triumphant Hallelujah Chorus rang out, the king rose. Royal protocol has always demanded that whenever the monarch stands, so does everyone in the monarch's presence. Thus, the entire audience stood too, initiating a tradition that has lasted more than two centuries. It is lost to history the exact reason why the King stood at that point, but the most popular explanations include:

  • As was and is the custom, one stands in the presence of royalty as a sign of respect. The Hallelujah chorus clearly places Christ as the King of Kings. In standing, King George II accepts that he too is subject to Lord of Lords.
  • He was so moved by the performance that he rose to his feet.
  • He arrived late to the performance, and the crowd rose when he finally made an appearance.
  • His gout acted up at that precise moment and he rose to relieve the discomfort.
  • After an hour of musical performance, he needed to stretch his legs.

There is another story told  about this chorus that Handel's assistant walked in to Handel's room after shouting to him for several minutes with no response. The assistant reportedly found Handel in tears, and when asked what was wrong, 

Handel held up the score to this movement and said, 

"I thought I saw the face of God"

Who knows? Handel showed his love to God by writing such a wonderful composition.... The love although is not as great as the love that God have to us, still if you have already listen to his composition, you will just know what I mean...

Anyway, I can't explain everything in words.... Just get the music and try listening to it.. =)

God Bless..

A Piece of Advice While Flying

Have some laugh to de-stress

It goes...........

After a month-long holiday in the US , my wife and I finally boarded

the plane in San Francisco last Sunday heading home.                                          


As the plane reached cruising speed with the seat belt sign switched
off, a 6 ft 3' black man with the build of Mike Tyson in the front row
got up from his seat, turned to face the back, raised his arm and


Everyone was frozen to the seat, expecting the worst to happen.
And two stewards were about to jump onto this guy to overpower him
when another voice answered from the back of the plane:



The moral of the story is:
If you have a friend named Jack, for heaven's sake don't ever call him
in the plane. Otherwise you may land yourself in deep shit.


Still laughing?

Shocking Story

Be careful
Very Shocking

This is a real story of a young college girl who passed away last month in Penang. Her name was Ai Ling. She was hit by a truck. She had a boy friend named Tony. Both of them were true lovers. They always talked on the phone. She used to be never found without her handphone.

In fact she also changed her network from Maxis to Digi, so that both of them can be on the same network, and save on the cost. Even when Tony left overseas to finish his masters, they constantly kept in touch. 

She used to spend half of the day talking with Tony. Ai Ling's family knew about their relationship. Tony was very close to Ai Ling's family as well. (Just imagine their love) . Before she passed away she always told her friends 'If I pass away please burn me with my handphone' she also said the same thing to her parents. 

After her death, people couldn't carry her body. A lot of them tried to do so, but still cant everybody that had tried to carry the body, the results were the same. Eventually, they called a person known to one of their neighbours, who can speak with the soul of dead person and who was a friend of her father. 

He took a stick and started speaking to himself slowly. After a few minutes, he said 'this girl misses something here.' Then her friends told that person about her intentions to burn her with her phone. He then opened the grave box and place her phone and sim card inside the casket. After that they tried to carry the body. It was then moved easily and they then carried her into the van. 

All of us were shocked. Ai Ling's parents did not inform Tony that Ai Ling had passed away as they're waiting for him to come home after his graduation.. 

After 2 weeks Tony returned and called Ai Ling's mom....... 

Tony: 'Aunty, I'm coming home today. Cook something nice for me. Don't tell Ai Ling that I'm coming home today, I wanna surprise her.'

Her mother replied, 'Come home first, I wanna tell you something very important.' 

After he came, they told him the truth about Ai Ling. Tony thinks  that they were playing a fool. He was laughing and said 'don't try to fool me - tell Ai Ling to come out, i have a gift for her... Please stop this nonsense'. 

Then they show him the original death certificate to him. They gave him proof to make him believe. (Tony started to sweat) He said... 'Its not true. We spoke yesterday.. She still calls me. 
Tony was shaking. 

Suddenly, Tony's phone rang. 'see this is from Ai Ling, see this....' he showed the phone to Ai Ling's family. all of them told him to answer. he talked using the loudspeaker mode. 

All of them heard his conversation. It is the actual voice of Ai Ling & there is no way others could use her sim card since it is nailed inside the grave box! 

They were so shocked and asked for the same person's (who can speak with the soul of dead persons) help again. He brought his master to solve this matter. 

He & his master worked for 5 hours. Then they discovered one thing which really shocked them.... 


 Digi  'I will follow you!!!' 

Don't shout at me I am also looking for the person who started this thing!! LOL =D

Yeah, and I know it's not funny to joke about death....but I just find its kinda stupid....
While I was reading it, I actually felt really bad for the guy and the family...and I thought it was REAL story!!!
AND I was wondering do I know anyone call that... as you all know that I'm from Penang!!!!

Who started this?
