There Was No Room In The Inn

Well, it is the time of the year. The time much awaited by everyone. Well, at least I have been waiting for it. Going back last weekend, really got me into the Christmas spirit. Saw Mum baking the fruit cakes, those home made murukku's, etc, just got me. The tree is not up yet. I guess I've got to get it up. I love decorating the Christmas tree. We change the theme of the tree every year. Well, last year the theme was Gold and Red, so this year it will be Blue and Silver. I bought this Nativity Set for Mum. She loves those small ornaments. In fact, the Christmas tree and Santa Claus have taken away the true meaning of Christmas. I know, I know, I am drawn into the same craze as well. But, I agree that the true meaning of Christmas is actually seen in the Manger. As you can see above, this is the true meaning of Christmas.

Mary & Joseph were searching for an Inn to have their baby born. Now, this baby was the ONE. The ONE who will indeed save all men from their sins. Yes, this baby was Jesus. So throughout Bethlehem, they couldn't find a room in any of the Inns there. So, the only available option was a Manger. As you can see above, there were cows, donkeys, sheeps and other farm animals. Jesus was born in such a state so that everyone could see Him and could reach Him. If Jesus was born in a luxurious palace, no one could have gone to see Him. The 3 wise men bearing gifts came from all over to see Jesus in the Manger. They were guided by a star. This star was a guide not only to the wise men but also to the shepherds who were manning their flock in the hills far away. Hence, the true meaning of Christmas. Christ was born to save all men from their iniquities. To God Be The Glory!

"But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel".

Damn It Has Been Long!!!!

Hi everyone, I know it has been a while since I last blogged. I have been busy with exams. Just finished my Law exams. Now it is the waiting that I need to endure. Anyway, have not been up to anything special lately. Well, went on a holiday to Penang with Tasha. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be. I fell sick, had a tough time finding a 24hours clinic in the whole island. Boy, that was an experience. But it was ok. Stayed at Tg. Bungah Resort - it has a private beach front and all so it was ok. Will update with some pics soon.

VW is not too fine. Fell sick AGAIN. Before I forget, I had the pleasure to meet this VW freak. Went for dinner @ a restaurant in SS2, met him. A very humble man. He has done wonders on his VW 1303s. Car is worth about RM35K now. He will be taking me to some of his workshops to do up 'yours truly'. I do hope and pray that the price of doing up the engine and the body will not be too expensive. Besides, the body and the engine, I am also saving up some money for the interior. Hopefully, everything can be managed within a budget of RM7K.

More on my next post. Will put in some pics of the trip to Penang and Dogathon as well. By the way, to all you pet lovers, the Dogathon 2006 will be held at the same venue : UPM &Vetenirary Faculty on the 13th of August 2006 (Sun). For all those of you who want the come, the event starts about 7am and should be finished by 4pm.

Preparing For The Treasure Hunt

A few of us @ the Office have decided to take part in the annual 'The Sun' Treasure Hunt. Have never took part in one before - at least not the one in which we move around in cars. It should be a good experience. Ben & I will be going for the briefing this Friday @ Mont Kiara.

It is our first experience. We hope to learn and experience the shit. Not so much winning, but taking something home in the end of the day would be an added benefit.

Will be posting more with pics after the event which is on Saturday, 20th May 2006.

VW Hospitalised

Hi everyone,

My Beetle was sent to the workshop sometime last week to replace the clutch kit. That was the original plan. However, when the engine was jacked up, all the engine oil that was in the car spilled out. Unknown to me the oil seals were broken, piston rings were dented and the cylinder heads were cracked.

The repair bill which was initially estimated to be between RM700 - RM800, rocketed to RM1,200. The car will be ready by this Saturday. Basically a top over-haul was done on the car. The engine will also be washed and then I am thinking of sending it to the paint shop for some touch ups to be done. Paint job is still fine, so I thought of patching up some of the parts that were chipped. Once that is done, then we're going interior.

So, I am planning a monthly routine in the car. Every month a small part will be done on the car. More updates once the car is out. Will also try and upload a latest picture of the AT 14.
