Spiritual Weekend at Pace Bene

Last weekend I joined and involved in LSS (Life in a Spirit Seminar) for two days for the Baptism and Confirmation student at Pace Bene Retreat Centre at Papar Kota Kinabalu. More than 100 has participated in this program. CCR Group from my parish has given a mandate to do the talk and service to them.

As one of the member in this group, I feel delighted to witness the spirit and determination of the participant to let us guide their journey in spiritual way and at the same time renewal in spirit to our group.

Keep Moving..

My previous post talked about ‘fly again’. Well, I went for my Master convocation at PWTC. Spend few days in Kuala Lumpur do some shopping and sightseeing. I utilized my times to recover from tiredness, busyness and routines of life. Some people might think I overdo myself by studying while working full time. But I have my own purposes.. Nobody can take that from me…hehehee. I still have few papers to finish but in different course.. well life is experimental and learning time never stop right?. Hope I can finished it by next coming year ^-^. I get used with busy life and I’m trying hard not to burden myself with all the negatives thinking of others. After all, it is my road. Nobody can walk it for me. 

I have promised myself to live my life to the fullest by embrace it in every corner of my life. Whatever storms, turmoil or windy road along the journey, I’ll do my best to keep moving forward. Others see me as a beautiful and cheerful creature while deep inside I crawled my life to the best. I do believe everyone have their own road to walk on. It’s only matter how we walked with it.

Have a blessed day ahead..

Mixed Up or Messed Up?

This telephone line make me wonder; how systematic our communication to be mixed up to messed up. I wonder, if this happened in Malaysia, how they going to fixed it. Do they know which lines belong to which person?...... lol. Something to ponder. Do our life represent the same?

By the way, I took this picture during my trip to Vietnam. Our tour guide told us that, this 'arrangement' make no strange. It will be more strange if the cable are arrange in order... again make me wonder..

Weekend with Mr. Croc's

Last weekend, I managed to spend a quality time with family to go 'jalan-jalan' and sightseeing. We decided to go to Crocodiles Farm in Jalan Tuaran in late afternoon. It is about 45minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu to the place.

Before that, we stopped by to have some light refreshment along the Jalan Salut to have a famous Lokan Bakar (Roasted Clam) at the well known stalls along Jalan Sulaman/Salut approx. 30 minute drives from town. We had it with some coconut pudding and special sauce which is homemade mixed with sesame oil, lemongrass, lime, black sauce, vinegar and some which I’m not even

Established in year 2005, crocodile farm is the largest farm in Sabah which located at Sulaman Highway, Tuaran Northern part of Kota Kinabalu accommodates more than 1,000 crocodiles with different species and sizes. In here we can see and gain a knowledge on how the captive crocodiles breeding and farming. Their reputation in producing superior quality raw skins and meat has become known internationally.

Tired with long journey to reach here but happy once 'played' with Mr. Croc.. hehehe
