Every grey gloud has a silver lining

It's midway thru September! So much has happened! A string of unfortunate events, or rather stringS of unfortunate events but GOd's grace is abundant, He never left me alone, in fact He sent someone to help me sail through the storm, i'd like to call it a miracle, coz i couldn't really believe it happened, as the saying goes, "Every grey cloud has a silver lining". God sent me a new friend, her name's Bree Wee! THats the miracle i'm talking about! The timing couldn't be anymore perfect, well.. but of course God's timing's always perfect. I love triathlons, IM races, swim cycle run kinda stuff, i've seen Bree on trimags and she's appeared on other magz too! (see pic above). A quick google search and you'll find tonnes of info about Bree, she's also Hawaii's hometown hero! Professional triathlete and Ironman.
At the 2007 Ironman World Championship, Bree carried her son James Kainoa together to cross the finish line, its super tough finishing it alone, what more carrying her son across the line! super amazing! PLUS Bree was 1st in her age group and 13th overall, she set the 25-29 age group record in 9:47 and broke Kate Major’s overall amateur record set in 2002!
She like superstar to me, like your favourite Hollywood celebrity to you for those not into triathlons or your favourite sports hero that you're a fan of!
I can't keep silent, God is awesome, God is wonderful, God is so good! He's helped me go through some really dark moments through Bree Wee, I could hardly believe it when she said we're friends hahaha i'm totally flabbergasted! THanks so much Bree! You're so inspiring and caring and... really funny :P
Besides Bree, i have some really amazing friends to thank also, ya'll know who you are, thanks so much! ya'll are like my guardian angels!

Told u she was funny!

wake me up when 2009 ends

there's a song by Greenday called wake me up when september ends.
"....seven years has gone so fast, wake me up when september ends..., here comes the rain again, falling from the stars, drenched in my pain again, becoming who we are. As my memory rests, but never forgets what i lost, wake me up when september ends..."
someone i know used to like this song alot and said its a very sad song and told me not to listen to it, ironic i know. but now i'm being tested again. now tell me... on this earth... if good things ever lasts. God please ... wake me up when 2009 ends.

I've finally started writing journals. Been going thru gloomy days (see pic above) and they don't seem to go away. As much as I keep encouraging frens who are down that the sun always comes up and brighten the day after the gloomy night, the night doesn't last forever. My "night" has been a very long one. one thing after another. now another thing has come up. God i need a break. at this rate i could be exporting mushrooms to japan. its okay if you dun understand that.

And so regarding journals, having conversations with a few ppl have finally CONVINCED me of writing journals. notice word emphasized "convinced". some friends i know are religious in writing journals but i never bought the idea till now. I enjoy reading Vicky Campbell's blog, top triathlete and poster pin-up girl for some ads, Nike, H2O, etc, if ur in Singapore u might just be able to see pics of her in posters in MRTs etc. Below is a pic of her in an interview in Elle Mag March 07 issue. now ain't she GORGEOUS!! :P

After she told me her blog's jus her rambling on bout life's misfortunes, i thought maybe i should start writing journals bout my life, be it misfortunes or blessings. Yes as u can tell i'm a big fan! :D but she is such a nice and wonderful person and friend to have! even tho to me she's a celebrity!

Then few days later I had dinner with a friend and jus poured out my life's misfortunes. My friend encouraged me to write journals and i could end each day's post with a prayer. So i finally started yesterday. I know some of you make your own journals/diary but i was wondering how your journal/s look like, i'm considering buying a nice one in the future, i just bought a simple one from jusco yesterday in case i give up or got lazy keeping up with the journals :P if ur thinking of a present to give me you can always get me a nice journal!! :D

[edited @ 3.20pm]
I was tired... more like exhausted last night, went to bed at 10pm, but couldnt sleep, got up and went back to bed few times, still unable to sleep, but i was exhausted. Doesn't quite make sense, i had no energy to even walk to the front door of my house yet i couldn't sleep, and i had a good 6hour sleep the night before, i didn't do any sports or exercises or workouts that evening even. in the end i think i fell asleep at bout 3.30am.

I have some really amazing friends, they're like angels to me. when i had that insane back injury pain, Cat who is so far away kept giving me words of comfort and encouragements, always assured me with the words "it's going to be over soon", "it's gonna end, just tahan awhile more", "it's gonna end soon". those words don't sound too magical, but in my moments of intense and severe back pain those words rang loud in my head and i can only cling on to it like a lifeline. at that point I couldnt see how it could end, but those words rang loud in my head. thanks Cat! thanks to all who prayed for me also and supported me too, Dr. Julian, Jan&Pang(very dear friends), James, Cord, Grace, Page, Jen, Dr. Basel, Dr. Kim, amazing ppl, the list goes on and on, sorry if ur name not here ah, doesnt mean ur the least, not at all! Also that Guardian Angel who looks after me =)

Some don't even know me well yet cared for me, one friend bought me medicated oil for back rub, another who found out wanted to treat me to a back massage! (i didn't go tho, paiseh lah), all the prayers, sms, some friends gave me chocs, another gave me sushi! when i was craving for it! the Amazing thing is this friend is my student's Mom, take note that her son and her are NOT in FB, but that morning when i posted that i was craving for sushi in FB, that very afternoon when she came by to pick up her son after drum lessons she gave me a box of sushi... walau... unbelievable! Grace, thanks for your cards! so inspirational and encouraging! Sze made cupcakes (i lurveeee em so much!) and then wanted to come to my house deliver the cupcakes to me (but i wasn't home). Just out of the blues bake cupcakes and deliver to me some more! then after that go back to Sg. like... i cannot understand lor such kindness and goodness, what I can understand is God is good!

So many challenges and setbacks and a string of unfortunate events, frustrations and all that would have turned me into one of these..

but then God sends His angels to touch me and show me His love, so amazing, unconditional, I cannot understand. who can fathom, the depths of His love. So many things in my mind. If i murdered or did something horrible to someone today, even if intentionally, i wonder if i'd still have these wonderful angels by my side. I for one, will never be able to be such an angel, as much as humans have great capacity for good works, there's also capacity for evil. As good as one can be, there's still a judgmental nature in our minds whether we're conscious of it or not. most often, not. it comes so naturally to judge someone who did wrong, a criminal, an offender, i'm so often guilty of that, yet I wish for someone that will listen and that will not be judgemental. I never fail to be amazed and touched by the story of the Prodigal Son. His Father's love so amazing, NOT judgmental, not condemning even after all the wrong the son has done. I'm amazed by those who are in prison ministry, who can still love the criminal and find redemptive value in each of those criminals and show love to them. such are Angels sent by God.

Yesterday I didnt feel like eating lunch, so didn't get myself anything for lunch. The same morning i read some devotional that says that I'm under God's favor, and "His favor rains down on you like dew on the grass every morning!". After lunch hour ended i came back to office and saw a McD Set meal on my Desk!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD... HOW AWESOME YOUR NAME IN ALL THE EARTH!@!!!@!!! my colleagues told me somebody gave it to me!!! .....

A quick and brief search for the word Angel from the web got me these results, here's an excerpt:
Angels - (a) In the widest sense they are agents of God's providence (Ex. 12:23; Ps. 104:4; Heb. 11:28; 1 Cor. 10:10; 2 Sam. 24:16; 1 Chr. 21:16; 2 Kings 19:35; Acts 12:23). (b) They are specially God's agents in carrying on his great work of redemption.

THere's a "higher level" of "angels" I'd like to address and thank, those who supported and encouraged me by being anonymous. words really cannot describe lah. You're really like Angels in heavenly beings that are God's agents of providence but are never seen or heard, no names, nothing. just Blessing and portraying God's love thru tangible and intangible things.

The giver and the taker

...to give or not to give

In this context, there are 2 kinds of person in this world. The giver and the taker.
There are those who gives and gives and gives, its their nature, some give unconditionally, some with conditions

There are those who are takers, its all about taking and taking, its never enough, or most of the time it's not enough (self-centered). most of the time its about me, me, and me, you? who cares bout you as long as i get what i want...

I've had alot of experience of giving and giving and giving, i always believe in unconditional giving as portrayed by my Father God in heaven, well He is God, I am not. It's draining, exhausting to be always giving and I'm NOT talking about monetary or financial issues. But of the other aspects of life, emotionally, mentally, physically, giving of your time and giving encouragements, care (emotions) etc. you can add to the list. Where do u draw the line if one were to give unconditionally, or do u even draw a line when u give unconditionally?

It sucks, it hurts, especially when you've given, and then u get stung or bitten in return. I've tolerated alot but i've been stretched quite far this time. i think i have a phobia now.

Food for thought and quote of the day (applies to me too)
"Actions lie louder than words"

I'd like to share a true story...

Theresa Briones is a tender, loving mother. She also has a stout left hook that she used to punch a lady in a coin laundry. WHy'd she do it?

Some kids were making fun of Theresa's daughter, Alicia. Alicia is bald. Her knees are arthritic. Her nose is pinched. Her hips are creaky. Her hearing is bad. She has the stamina of a seventy-year-old. And she is only ten.

"Mom," the kids taunted, "come and look at the monster!"
Alicia weighs only twenty-two pounds and is shorter than most preschoolers. She suffers from progeria - a genetic aging disease that strikes one child in eight million. The life expectancy of progeria victims is twenty years. THere are only fifteen known cases of this disease in the world.

"She is not an alien. She is not a monster," Theresa defended. "She is just like you and me."
Mentally, Alicia is a bubbly, fun-loving third grader. She has a long list of friends. She watches television in a toddler-sized rocking chair. She plays with Barbie dolls and teases her younger brother.

Theresa has grown accustomed to the glances and questions. She is patient with the constant curiosity. Genuine inquiries she accepts. Insensitive slanders she does not.

The mother of the finger-pointing children came to investigate. "I see 'it'," she told the kids.

"My child is not an 'it'." Theresa stated. Then she punched the woman.

Who could blame her? Such is the nature of parental love. Mothers and fathers have a God-given ability to love their children regardless of imperfections. Not because the parents are blind. Just the opposite. They see vividly.

Theresa sees Alicia's inability as clearly as anyone. But she also sees Alicia's value.

So does God.
God sees us with the eyes of a Father. HE sees our defects, errors, and blemishes. But he also sees our value. Our GOd is a loving God, that's why I call Him Father in heaven.

Now there are friends who have told me they look forward to reading my blog posts, some find it humorous and hilarious, some told me its amazing how i can be transparent and be myself, despite my short comings. ANother close buddy Dr. J.T. smsd me to confirm with me that indeed.. VOLTRON ROCKS!! i agree bro! totally agree! hey buddy careful tho, sum might think ur a small kid, summore the doctor told me "Go black lion!" :P and he also affirmed me with the correct name of the painkiller is VOLTAREN :P I'm in no way an angel, if anything i be the devil (hey u there stop laughing i know u are :P) but if my posts sounds like sum small kid, well if it has affected some of my frens in good ways then i've made a difference.

unlike ppl who hide behind the securities of a fake identity or name and throw unconstructive criticisms, how c....... i'm sure most of u can guess that word that starts with "C", and so yea.. how c-onvenient is the word i'll use, no need to mention the obvious. and i wonder what your intentions are. That question you asked sounds very familiar, i've heard it before. now i'm asking,where is your sense of humor? you must be too matured to read my posts eh. well if it is, then i wonder why do u still read it? its funny, no one is forcing u or forced you to read my blog i hope!? :P

chillax! and have a break.. have a kitkat!

Voltron Defender of the Universe

This pain is killing me! its insane! its like paul's thorn in the flesh, just that what i'm feeling is more like a 2 edged sword in my nerve system ouch ouch ouch ouch

so the doc gave me painkillers called voltron. okay i think it should be volTEron(according to grace) . but no power one?? after eating still feel the crazy pain! and i can't take more tablets coz it'll cause gastric problems so i have to follow the doc's dosage sigh at least if doc gave me voltron (the defender of the universe) also i be much happier can distract me from the pain

the worse part was when doc said those most dreadliest n dreadest words that i dread most dreadly ... um u get my point

doc: "keon u must rest and stay away from any kind of sports and exercise"
keon: "....." (thinking, this must really be the end times, the end of the world has come. i'm an exercise addict, a sports freak, a fanatic!! arghh)

i mean cmon, haven't u heard of that commandment "Thou shall not tell Keon not to exercise" ?? no? me neither but anyways leme assure u these are challenging times we're going thru ...

Slippery Disc?

Finally went to see a doc, well 2 docs in fact to get a 2nd opinion, and the 2nd doc being a specialist said that i have a slight slipped disc! =S

Forgiveness & nutella

Mahatma Gandhi was a very wise and noble man, one of his quotes that has plenty truth and wisdom is "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong"

That shows how weak i am. Some of you there wondering what the heck has forgiveness gotta do with nutella? Well you see, to be strong you need food, whether its spiritual or physical food, whatever food is still needed, so when u need to eat, i recommend nutella! nutella is one of the BEST things ever created! i haven't had much apetite to eat for the past few... weeks... months? dunno.. that explains my weight drop from 79kg till now 72kg. some nights i just have some almond nuts and tomato juice for dinner, no supper, and zzzzzzzzzzzz. other nites i have a slice of wholemeal bread with nutella, okay i usually end up eating 2 slices coz nutella is SO SO GOOD! maybe nutella will be one of the keys or ingredients to forgiveness! u gotta love nutella!~

I vaguely remember another quote about Character. "Character isn't inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action."

I was watching the rugby league world Finals yesterday when the Roos were leading the Kiwis 8-0. Then a kiwi made a pretty bad blunder on his side of the field, he couldnt catch an 'easy' ball which anyone could have caught it, what's worse is to make such blunder in the FINALS, then i noticed it... his team mates came towards him and patted on his back and encouraged him and kept assuring him that it's okay and dun worry bout the flop, they were really so encouraging! right there and then, the first thing that came to my mind was, the Kiwis are gonna win the Finals with team mates like that. also he didnt make anymore of those mistakes for the rest of the game. True enough, they went on to win it and stunned the Roos 34-20! i was thinking.. man that's HUGE!!

i have always adapted that method or approach in helping people as i've also learned from world renowned leadership experts such as Peter Drucker, Max Depree and John Maxwell just to name a few, but some disagree or worse still when you've encouraged em, the same ppl turn against u and say ur 'method' is not appropriate and don't appreciate ur encouragements, yea and i got a stunner too. in fact i've been on the receiving end of lots of stunners!u suddenly get hit and wonder what on earth did u do to deserve such treatments. not cool. Anyways I thought the Roos had better play and attacking strategy throughout the game and it was a real stunner that they lost! sorry for ya'll at Aussie land, i'm know ya'll disappointed but i'm sure the Roos be back to whoop ass next match! =)

Cause for a Creator

I came across this interesting article on the Beauty of Mathematics and how amazing it is but the fact is that just points to a beautiful and even more amazing Creator of the Universe

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to

How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions:


Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K

8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%


K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E

11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%

A-T-T- I-T-U- D-E

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

I think this should be my last race for 2008, my body is feeling the stress already, races i've done this year includes KRI 16km run, Melaka A Famosa International Triathlon,160km Century Ride, Port Dickson International Triathlon, Aviva Singapore Ironman 70.3 (1.9km swim 90.1km bike 21.1km run) and Powerman 2008 (11km run 64km bike 10km run)

To have a successful race one important ingredient is SUFFICIENT SLEEP! As for me i had NO sleep at all the whole nite before Powerman, my roomate uncle PK (a damn fast marathon runner mind you) can testify to that coz both of us were tossing and turning the whole nite!hence our results show similarity

I just thank God for strength to finish the race! i had tummy cramp right frm the first 11km run, cramps in my calves during the bike and my knee n ankles were hurting so badly during the last 10km run i had to walk most of the way

Here are some pics:
