Our Gynae @ UKMSC

Professor Paul is our first gynae for our first baby - well, obviously!

At our very first consultation last year, he gave us his cell phone number. He told us to call or text him if we had questions to ask.

Last night, MJ had the onset of a cold. So, I decided to text him at 23:55 before going to bed.
Hello Prof Paul. My wife is having nose block n her throat gets dry fast. Nothing serious right? Any recommendation for relief? Joshua.
Within 15 minutes, at 00:12, he replied.
Likely to be a possible flu. Rest should help. If necessary to take medicine can take piriton.

I'm not sure if there are gynaecologists like him, perhaps yes. If yes, perhaps rare. Maybe you can tell me.

My Dad reads My Blog

Last night, I had a chat with my dad. Can't remember what I said but he replied, '...breadtalk but kopitiam...'

I was surprised he knew something about 'breadtalk but kopitiam'. Thus, I asked if he had been reading my blog. He said yes. I wasnt' surprised. Reason being, he surfs the net using the same PC that I blog from.

So, dad if you are reading this right now, maybe you can try to put a comment!

In the meantime, I'm thinking if I should 'censor' certain things that I may want to blog about. Nevertheless, I think I ought to continue to go 'free flow' since my blog is already out in the cyberspace.
Most of all, I've to admit that though my dad is an old bloke, he understands me and what I blog. 8)

Lunch from Home Delights Restaurant @ 3 Two Square, PJ

Too lazy to go out for lunch. So, 'tumpang' order from a colleague from a restaurant located in the vicinity of my office at 3 Two Square.

The restaurant is Home Delights Restaurant.

Tele-order at 12:30 pm. Went to collect order at 1 PM.

What did I order? Initially, I wanted to order luncheon meat fried rice but changed to seaweed fried rice upon my colleague's suggestion. Reason being besides seaweed, it has a bit of everything - lap cheong, luncheon meat and other ingredients.

How was the seaweed fried rice? So-so only. Price? RM5.90.

MJ and I were excited as well. Finally, we have the Chinese names that sound like Janson & Jonice.

Altantuya Murder Trial: 'razak incriminate najib'

I heard from my cousin the rumoured reason for Razak losing his cool in court as reported in the Star on Thursday, February 21, 2008. Read it here.
The rumoured reason was that the 'something' that his father whispered to him was a directive from Pak Lah to incriminate Najib, Razak's boss.
Curious, I googled 'razak incriminate najib'. To my surprise, the first result was exactly the information that I wanted to verify.
Oh well, we all know the muzzle of the mainstream media by the present government.

Arahan Sulit untuk Razak Baginda

Tarikh : Friday, February 22 @ 10:25:00 MYT
Topik : Analisis Isu

 Kawan-kawan, there was much drama at the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial yesterday. Someone is trying to do a number on someone. There are no angels involved. Only devils. For a minute the case was adjourned and the courtroom almost cleared.

The newspapers were not allowed to report on what really went on. Only a portion of what happened was reported in the press. Here is The Star version:
Abdul Razak kicks and hits door at murder trial

Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, who is being tried for abetting two policemen in murdering Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, lost his cool on the 90th day on Wednesday. He had a dissatisfied look when his father Datuk Abdullah Malim Baginda whispered something to him before the hearing began at about 9.30am. After the proceedings were adjourned for lunch, however, the 48-year-old political analyst, surprised all those present in the High Court when he suddenly kicked and banged the door with his hands. He was also seen crying before his lawyer Wong Kian Kheong and mother calmed him down.

Before the hearing began at 9:30 am, Razak Baginda's father had whispered something to him. This made Razak angry the whole day. Finally, about three hours later, Razak Baginda could not stand it any longer and exploded. What did he say?

Reporter friends who were there said that Razak shouted again and again, "Matilah kau Pak Lah! Matilah Pak Lah! I am innocent! I am innocent!" Then he went into a mad rampage and kicked the chairs and doors in the courtroom. Even the Judge was shocked and did not know what to do. Both the defense lawyers and the prosecution team were also all shocked.

The story goes that Razak Baginda's father whispered instructions to his son to incriminate his former boss Najib Tun Razak. The instruction came from the Pak Lah camp. This was yet another deal they were trying to make - Razak Baginda's life for Najib's head. The story is that Najib is outshining Badawi in this coming general election. Najib may win big in Pahang but Pak Lah may win small or even lose his seat in Kepala Batas.

The Pak Lah camp may also suspect that Najib's people are working in the background to embarass Pak Lah in Kepala Batas. Hence the 'whisperings' through Razak Baginda's father.

The Sun newspaper carried the story, complete with Razak Baginda's outburst. However, the Home Ministry asked The Sun to withdraw their first run which carried the 'Matilah Kau Pak Lah!' outburst by Razak Baginda. The Sun had to withdraw thousands of copies of their print run early this morning.

Strange things are happening in the country folks. No angels are involved. Only devils.

[Percaturan kem paklah yg dipimpin khairy melawan kem najib sentiasa bergerak...razak baginda dalam dilema]

25 tips for a healthy heart.

Got the above info from Samuel Lim, my younger bro. Don't underestimate him. He's much more mature than many who are of his age. He blogs too. Cheers, Samuel!

Doing a self-check now against the 25 tips.
I 'PASS' for:
1. Eat less of milk, cheese and nuts
2. Eat regular meals
3. Drink water throughout the day
4. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator at school (I take the stairs at work!)
5. Quit smoking (Never puffed in my entire life!)
6. Avoid alcohol (Seldom drink, never drunk)
7. Sleep adequately (More than enough, I think. May be deprived of sleep when baby is out!)
8. Work schedule should be regular to avoid too much stress (I am not a workaholic.)
9. Laughter is a good medicine
10. Control diabetes (Thank God, no diabetes but I live by 'kurang manis!')
11. Family history of cardiovascular disease should be known (Dad had mild heart attack...)
12. Love. Give it and receive it (Aiming to love God and my wife. Receiving is almost effortless.)
I 'FAIL' for :
13. Eat more of grains, vegetables, greens, fruits, fish, seeds & yogurt
14. Add garlic to your recipes (When was the last time I cooked?)
15. Beta-carotene rich foods like carrots, cabbage, sweet potatoes and dark leafy greens
16. Reduce sodium intake to no more than 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt per day (How to know?)
17. Switch from coffee to tea (*rolling eyes*)
18. Exercise regularly
19. Do housework
20. Healthy weight should be maintained (Maintaining my middle kingdom!)
21. Blood pressure should be monitored
22. Cholesterol should be monitored
23. Practice stress-reduction techniques such as deep-breathing, Yoga and meditation (Why should I when I do exactly that whenever I sleep!?)
24. Medical check-ups should be done regularly
25. Medication prescribed by Dr. should be taken

MacroK SMS - the malicious & unscrupulous scammer!

All Maxis postpaid subscribers beware of the External Content Provider called MacroK SMS.

Since October 2007, I 'upgraded' my plan to 'Family Plus' plan with two new supplementary lines for my parents.

MacroK SMS began to send unsolicited SMS to my mother's line in November 2007 and continued doing so in December 2007. My mother is a senior citizen. She only knows how to make and receive calls. She's can't speak nor read English. Certainly, she can't SMS as well. So, how could she have subscribed to the said provider?

I went to the Maxis Centre in SS2 to lodge a complain. Instead of solving my problem, I was asked to call the tel no 0321643273 listed next to the short code 32278. Each time I called on weekdays during office hour, I would be greeted by an automated voice message that ended by asking for my name and contact no with the promise to call me. I NEVER received a call.

My advice to you is to check your itemised billing. Don't get cheated.

Strength Of A Woman By Shaggy

The first time I saw the MTV a few years ago, I liked it instantly. Reason being its lyric is quite close to the truth albeit a bit 'naughty'.

I learnt from my pastor many years ago that the word 'helper' used to refer to woman and the Holy Spirit in the Bible comes from the same root word. Thus, the role of the woman is likened to role of the Holy Spirit.

Now that my wife is pregnant, I realize that she has the STRENGTH OF A WOMAN.

So, Woman, I hope you will enjoy listening to this song. Listen to the lyric too.

Oh Wow, uh, hm, ya, shorty!
Oh Yah!
This one goes out to all my women, my strong women.

So amazin' how this world was made,
I wonder if God is a woman !!
The gift of life astounds me to this day;
I give it up for the woman !!
She’s the constant wind that fills my sail,
Oh, that woman !!
With a smile and a style,
She’ll protect you like a child,
That’s a woman !!

She'll put a smile upon her face,
And take you to a higher place,
So don't you underestimate,
strength of a woman !!
strength of a woman !!

Woke up this mornin',
I got up with the scent of a woman !!
S'picture if you would what life would be,
Ain't much good without a woman !!
She can nag and be a constant pain,
Oh, that woman !!
But those hips,
she's got me whipped,
And it's just too hard to resist,
What a woman !!

Tender lips that's so so sweet,
Gentle words she softly speaks,
Such a nature will we meet,
God bless the ground beneath her feet !!
She can take you on a high,
Be your comfort when you cry,
But if you look into her eyes you'll see,
The strength of a woman.
Strength of a woman

Visit to the Gynae @ UKMSC

This morning, dear visited the gynae on her own for the first time.

Overall good report but the gynae was not happy about the scanning coz not clear. Thus, the sex of the baby is still not known.

Girl or boy?

Time will tell unless we opt for the 3-D scan.

We want to thank God for His protection and blessing over the baby.

What do you see?


This will drive you crazy!

WHERE DOES THE EXTRA MAN COME FROM? don't ask me; I haven't figured it out yet

One sen to go

Come next April Fool's Day, one-sen coin will be done away with.
So, before it comes, we are doing away with them by paying 50 sen each time we ply the Connaught Highway.

10-sen stacks now already neatly wrapped by MJ.

One sen to go

KUALA LUMPUR: It is no joke, but by April Fool's Day next year, you will not have to use the one-sen coin anymore.

This is because the Government's rounding mechanism for over-the-counter transactions will be fully implemented by April 1. All payment totals will either be rounded up or down to the nearest five sen.

Sen-sible move: Shoppers at Jusco supermarkets need not worry whether they have one-sen coins to pay their bills – they can simply help themselves to the coins placed on a tray near the payment counters. The coins are from the supermarket staff and customers. — AZMAN GHANI / The Star
For example, if the total amount to be paid is RM82.01 or RM82.02, it will be rounded down to RM82. However, if the total that has to be paid is RM82.03 or RM82.04, it will be rounded up to RM82.05.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal said this move would benefit consumers, businesses and the Government.

“It will be more convenient for both parties. Businesses will no longer have to handle the coins or ensure a ready supply, while consumers will also not have to worry about carrying the coins,” he said.

“On top of that, the Government will save RM18mil which it spends yearly to mint these coins.”

Shafie said talks were already under way with major retailers to recalibrate their cashier machines so that receipts issued would have an extra two lines denoting either a rounding up or rounding down.

“It will also not affect the current price structure. Businesses can continue to charge RM29.99 or other odd numbers they are currently using,” he said.

He said most of the one sen coins ended up unused and many consumers were not particular about the coin when they get them in change and that this was “an economic wastage.”

Bank Negara assistant governors Lilian Leong and Datuk Mohd Nor Mashor said there was a substantial amount of deliberation before the decision was made to implement the mechanism.

Leong said they chose not to demonetise the one-sen coin immediately because they wanted to take a gradual approach.

Leong said Bank Negara could reduce its production of the coin and once the market has “settled”, a proposal could be made withdraw the coin as legal tender.

Mohd Nor added that the one-sen coin would continue to be legal tender and that businesses would have to accept it as payment up to a limit of RM2.

Asked about the effect this mechanism would have on charities which rely on one-sen coins for their income, Shafie said he expected them to get even greater contributions as people would start giving five-sen coins.

Malaysian Retailers Association president Toh Peng Koon said the move would help reduce some costs related with the handling and transportation of the coin while also reducing the reliance on it.

“There have been shortages of the coin before and now this will no longer be an issue,” he said, adding that it costs RM3 for handling charges for one bag of coins and RM60 per trip that was made.

Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia representative Datuk Hashim Othman said most of the items sold at petrol stations were already rounded up but that he would suggest to the Government to allow them to recalibrate their petrol pumps.

“We will suggest to them to allow us to make it such that the pump stops at multiples of five sen. This would mean, for example, it would stop at RM20.05 or RM20.10,” he said.

Fomca communications director Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman said the move by the Government was a positive one and was one the federation had been calling for.

National Consumers Complaints Centre director Darshan Singh went a step further and called for the one sen to be demonetised immediately so that retailers could not prey on consumers with their “99-sen gimmick”.

General Election Gimmick?

The statement added that the move to make the interim payment was in line with the advice of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
The statement added that the decision was in line with the advice of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

He added that the interim payment was not a directive from the Prime Minister, but rather a decision by ABM.

Nobody's Perfect. I Am Nobody.

For fun, I decided to put 'Nobody's Perfect. I Am Nobody.' as my display name.

Within minutes, I had someone who responded and copied 'wholesale'!


I didn't know until yesterday that I could have my own customized-personalized Google homepage.

With iGoogle, basically you can select the contents that you wish to have.

One reason I've always preferred Google over Yahoo! is the former has much neater and nicer interface than the latter.

You're 28 weeks pregnant

Not me obviously but my wife, Mary-Janice.
Nevertheless, the following fact is interesting:

New dads experience hormonal changes, such as dips in testosterone and increases in estrogen, which are linked to nurturing.

My Pregnancy This Week

Hello, Mary-Janice!

By this week, By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can open and close her eyes, which now sport lashes. This movement is more of a reflexive blink than a deliberate opening and closing, but it won't be long before she's batting those beauties at you.

Crocs @ Work

Weekdays, I 'toggle' between my Crocs and working shoes.

Once a while, I 'switch' between my Iswara and Avanza.

Last night, I left my working shoes in the Avanza.

This morning, I drove the Iswara to work. Suddenly, I realized I didn't have my working shoes! I had no choice but to wear my blue Crocs to work. Thank God I happened to have a pair of blue socks in my Iswara. So, they helped to 'cover up' my 'hole-y' shoes.

Hehe...just to show you how comfortable I have been wearing Crocs, I have two pix here taken by Dan'Lion who caught me wearing them instead of my leather shoes during my wedding rehearsal last year. Thanks Dan'Lion for the paparazzo!

Valentine on Facebook Jujups

Looking at the DIY frames, can see the two different personalities? Top is from me to her. Bottom is from her to me.

Valentine Flowers for My Wife

3 roses to mark our third Valentine.

She was smart to ask me, 'So, next year 4 roses?' I answered, 'Maybe...'

Valentine @ Genting

Came home from Genting at half-past eleven.

We were there to celebrate our third Valentine.

As usual, parked the Avanza at the First World Hotel.

We could have stayed until midnight but we had work to do the next day.

So, we made our way down the hill after one hour of 'walk-shop-talk-snap' and 'look-see'.

Oh yeah. We bought 4 buckets of 'Only Cappuccino Pop Corn' - only sold in the First World Plaza.

General Election is Coming...

@ 1305 today, I received a text message on my mobile phone from 'The Advocate'.

It said:
Parliament dissolved. Nomination on 22.2 and Polling on 1.3

So, the time has come for us to vote wisely.

The Star Online Parliament dissolved, elections on (2nd update): The Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman had yet to confirm that nomination day was February 21 and election day on March 2nd. He said: The official announcement is tomorrow.

Let us wait and see.
Pray for GE2008.

Chinese New Year: The seventh day

The seventh day, traditionally known as renri 人日, the common man's birthday, the day when everyone grows one year older.

It is the day when tossed raw fish salad, yusheng, is eaten. This is a custom primarily among the overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia, such as Malaysia and Singapore. People get together to toss the colourful salad and make wishes for continued wealth and prosperity.
For many Chinese Buddhists, this is another day to avoid meat.


Frankly and unashamedly, I admit that I only knew about 人日 three years ago in year 2005.

Training Day

Today is a full-day training at work.

Father, You are the souce of all wisdom and knowledge.
Help me to understand everything in the training.
Thank You that You are with me.
Help me to be committed to my work.
Thank You.
In Jesus' name, I pray.

Tuesday, February 12, 2008


I had 2 packets of blessing today. Literally.

One worth RM10. Another RM100. The former was given by one of the bosses while the latter came from my immediate boss.

Both ang pows were given as 'start work' ang pows.

Traditionally, 'start work' ang pow is given by an employer to his employees on the first day when business resumes after the Chinese New Year holidays.

Thank God for the unexpected gifts.

Thank You Jesus.

Back to Work

Today is the sixth day of Chinese New Year or also known as 'chor lok' in Cantonese.

Lord, grant me wisdom and courage in my work today.
Help me to understand and absorb everything that I need to know in my work.
Thank You for Your grace and mercy.
In Jesus' name I ask all these things.

Akiane Kramarik - Spiritual Young Artist

Only got to know about this amazing young artist last week.

General Election is Near...

The General Election will most likely take place in March 2008.

I look forward to casting my first vote.

Regretted not registering as a voter earlier but then again, better late than never.

If you are a Malaysian citizen aged 21 and above, you are eligible to vote.

For election registration check, you may go to:

According to my friend Matthew, all I need to do is to bring MyKad when I go to the poll.

Bus Crash No More: Sign The Petition

When I first read ‘Family mourns loss of beautiful, intelligent go-getter about the tragedy involving a double-decker express bus that killed three passengers, I felt angry and sad.

How could the bus driver who had 13 summonses against him or the driver’s company that had 13 summonses on that bus itself (not sure which is the correct version) be still free to roam on the road?

I hope the answer is not blowin’ in the wind.

To sign the petition, please click here.

Lastly, I would like to end with a song below:

(to the tune and lyric of ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ by Bob Dylan)

How many roads must a man travel down
Before death calls him home?
Yes, ‘n’ how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, ‘n’ how many roads must the bus drivers ply
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, I hope, is not blowin’ in the wind,
It better not be blowin’ in the wind.

Baby Names: What's in a Name?

The standard question that we get nowadays as parents-to-be:
'What is your baby's name?' or 'Have you got a name for your baby?'

The standard answer that we give:
If girl, Jonice. Then we'll go on to explain that Jonice is a combo of the first syllable of Joshua and last syllable of Janice.

If boy, Janson. Simply because he is Janice's son.

The next question, if any, is normally:
'How about Chinese name?'

In reply, we normally say, 'We leave it to the grandfather.'

Rendezvous for Christian Singles

Subject: rendezvous.


My husband Alex and I have started a social activity group for Christian singles above the age of 25 called Rendezvous (

We open our activities to anyone from different churches to meet, mingle and make new friends. It's not a matchmaking service, but our aim is really to build lasting relationships between people from different churches in a safe environment. Of course we'd love to see people change their facebook status from single to dating!

Our upcoming event is a Costume Party in Sek 16 on the 16th of Feb. Would appreciate it if you could advertise it for us in the Latter Rain facebook group. The link to the event is here -

Lost & Found

Victor, my good friend, came to visit.

He shared with us his testimony how he reached out to the mother of his colleague, Wilson. For many years, she was very much troubled by her son's habitual gambling and borrowing money from illegal moneylenders aka Ah Longs.

Victor asked God for wisdom to talk to the sixty-something-year-old lady. He challenged her to believe in Jesus since she had not seen her 'gods' answering her prayers to change her son.

Though she didn't accept Christ at that time, God worked through her real estate negotiator who was engaged to sell her house to settle her son's debt. The real estate negotiator, a Christian himself, preached the gospel to her and she accepted Christ. Victor was happy that he sowed the seed and someone else reaped the harvest. Thank God for His grace and mercy.

Chinese New Year With a Difference

What's THE difference?

I'm married.

That means, traditionally, my wife and I have to give 'ang pow', 'lai see', 'red packet' or 'red envelope'.

Even though as a couple we have been giving, thank God that we still receive ang pows from some kind souls, usually the older ones.

This morning, we received an unexpected ang pow for our baby in the womb from a church member . Yeah, first ang pow for baby. 'Blessed baby!' I raised my left hand and exclaimed.

Naming My Blog

Finally, I've decided to name my blog 'Take Note Take Heart' for its title and address after going through a long list of addresses that are unavailable.

I hope to start and continue blogging here until God knows when...

Why I choose 'Take Note Take Heart':
It's available.
It feels right.
It sounds smooth.
It's meaningful.
It draws inspiration from the the book of Joshua (chapter 1 verses 8 and 9):
Take note being 'observe with care or pay close attention to'.
Take heart being ' To be confident or courageous'.
