Guys, I may not behave or look like one, but actually I am part of a four-person team of teachers in my church sunday youth class. It is time to come out of the closet and honour this place with writings that are more relevant to walking straight and growing old. So watch this space for some of the notes from my previous and upcoming lessons with the young people. Here's the possible compilation.
101: Church – a self-righteous club for the rich? 102: Youth bible class – an academic pursuit? 102a: Christian education – developing a Christian mindset 103: Ezra – Return 104: Ezra – Rebuild 105: Ezra – Restoration 106: Eternity – What is heaven? 107: Eternity – Is heaven your final destination? 108: Eternity – What is your brand of eternity? 109: The Gift of Pain 201: The world on the other side 202: Being a Christian Malaysian 203: Back to the Basics 204: Being BIG 205: Love, Sex and Relationships 1 206: Love, Sex and Relationships 2 207: Love, Sex and Relationships 3 208: Hosea 1 209: Hosea 2 301: Hosea 3
Malaysians! If you want to kill yourself on the roads, register as an organ donor first!
Prof.Tan,our nephrologist and professor of medicine, said something today that made me wish that he will be the next dean. He said,
"There is no use being the first centre to do successful renal transplant surgery if there will not be a continuous programme of cadaveric donations and transplant surgery."
"Our country has one of the lowest rate of cadaveric organ transplant (almost non-existent). Most of cadaveric organs are harvested from fatal road traffic accident victims. Our country like ours which have one of the highest accident death rates in the world have a almost non-existing cadaveric organ donation programme is quite a pity. Long way to vision 2020."
My condolences to Pak Lah and family of Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood. The beloved wife of our Prime Minister passed away this morning (20 Oct 2005) at the age of 64, after battling with breast cancer for almost four years.
Let's not remember her death as a defeat but the end of a courageous battle against the cancer. When she declared herself as a cancer champ, she has overcome it.
May this not weaken Pak Lah but strengthen to do the right thing for this country, knowing that lives are fragile and meaningless without the right priorities and values.
I got asked this question when my colleague found out that I was fasting today.
"No, cause I might buka-puasa with un-halal food, haha" I answered.
I bersahur with peanut butter sandwich with Nescafe at five something in the morning. No problem waking up. And then no food and no fluids. Fortunately, it was easy the entire day and I did not even rest. Ward work, ward rounds, the OT, neurology class and it's buka puasa time already.
It is not as difficult as it seemed. A big thank you to Emma for the encouragement. It is a good experience, and kind of healthy too.
