Botak Geng

How are you doing? I pray that you are still as young as you are and as you wish!!

You know what? I start losing my hair nowaday and moving toward the new era of my life: Mid-Life as some of my friend keep on reminding me: Mr Wee, you are entering the "mid-life crisis" stage!! (ERRR!!) (I can see some smiling faces out there, especially my "Botak Geng" who I'm joining them soon! HAHA!)

Oh! Dear! Don't remind me on that please!! I know, age is catching up on me very fast. But you know what, I still think there are a lot thing that I have not finish, complete and ....many-many work to do before I call it a day! Or put it this way, God has not finish with me yet!

So, with that in mind, althought the next time you see me, I may look "more mature" (he! he!) but you know what? my student always says to me: Sir, you are young at heart!! Ok, ok...you guys must think that I'm trying to comfort myself with all the saying....fine, ok-lah, I am 37 years old, 3 more years to go before entering 40!!

As I was wondering what to do with my "head" and my "hair", I found this song and flash (as attached) that remind me of my dream and remind me of my ultimate goal and purpose of life as written in the bible

Philippians 3 "Pressing on Toward the Goal "

12Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. 15All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. 16Only let us live up to what we have already attained. 17Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you. 18For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. 20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

12 这 不 是 说 我 已 经 得 着 了 , 已 经 完 全 了 ; 我 乃 是 竭 力 追 求 , 或 者 可 以 得 着 基 督 耶 稣 所 以 得 着 我 的 ( 或 作 : 所 要 我 得 的 ) 。13 弟 兄 们 , 我 不 是 以 为 自 己 已 经 得 着 了 ; 我 只 有 一 件 事 , 就 是 忘 记 背 後 , 努 力 面 前 的 ,14 向 着 标 竿 直 跑 , 要 得 神 在 基 督 耶 稣 里 从 上 面 召 我 来 得 的 奖 赏 。15 所 以 我 们 中 间 , 凡 是 完 全 人 总 要 存 这 样 的 心 ; 若 在 甚 麽 事 上 存 别 样 的 心 , 神 也 必 以 此 指 示 你 们 。16 然 而 , 我 们 到 了 甚 麽 地 步 , 就 当 照 着 甚 麽 地 步 行 。17 弟 兄 们 , 你 们 要 一 同 效 法 我 , 也 当 留 意 看 那 些 照 我 们 榜 样 行 的 人 。18 因 为 有 许 多 人 行 事 是 基 督 十 字 架 的 仇 敌 。 我 屡 次 告 诉 你 们 , 现 在 又 流 泪 的 告 诉 你 们 :19 他 们 的 结 局 就 是 沉 沦 ; 他 们 的 神 就 是 自 己 的 肚 腹 。 他 们 以 自 己 的 羞 辱 为 荣 耀 , 专 以 地 上 的 事 为 念 。20 我 们 却 是 天 上 的 国 民 , 并 且 等 候 救 主 , 就 是 主 耶 稣 基 督 从 天 上 降 临 。21 他 要 按 着 那 能 叫 万 有 归 服 自 己 的 大 能 , 将 我 们 这 卑 贱 的 身 体 改 变 形 状 , 和 他 自 己 荣 耀 的 身 体 相 似 。

So, lets continue to dream and to dream for God!! And to pressing toward the Goal of our Life: to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus.

I may have gave-up on my hairs, but I never give up on my life and my "DREAM" for Him!! You too shouldn't stop dreaming and continue to do BIG things for Him!!

Click here for the flash. Listen to it a few time, you will see and hear something, especially those of you who are like me, entering mid-life and start losing hairs!! Welcome to the "Botak Geng"!! Ha HA! :-)

(first time download may be slow, after running the first time, it'll become smooth then, enjoy!)


相片里 儿时的模样
记录着年少的时光 曾经在你我的心中
要登上月亮 要飞越太平洋

年后 我们都成长
告别了清涩和迷惘 曾经在你我的心中

人生的理想是 为主发光 拭去了泪水使我们更坚强
路依然漫长 别失去了盼望 痛苦时记得有主在你身旁

为主来梦想 为主来发光 虽然有挫折 但我不用沮丧
主是我力量 主指引方向我们的日子有梦想 有灿烂的阳光

Enjoy the Mid-life!!

(Your Botak Geng :-)

p/s sent this flash to a very good fren and decided it should benefit more people, therefore it's here for you, enjoy the song!
