Apologies

Dear readers (or at least the few loyal ones anyway),

Due to my involvement with theatre, I will not be able to post regularly. I will try my best to give some updates or my thoughts on some issues. But for the next two months, I would be virtually absent.

Till then.

Chiao!

Good Friday

Tomorrow, Christians will be celebrating or should I say commemorating Good Friday, the day the Lord Jesus Christ was crucifed on the Cross of Calvary. I say commemorate and not celebrate because it is a nostalgic day to remember the sufferings of the Messiah.

Today was the day when He was captured by the Temple guards. Today was the day when the Son of Man was betrayed with a kiss by Judas Iscariot, his disciple. Today was the day the Lord was falsely accused in the council of the Sanhedrin.

I will post more about Good Friday tomorrow.

Till then.

God Bless.

President Obama's Address to the Turkish Parliament

video

President Obama has done exceptionally well in his maiden trip to Europe. His speeches were rousing, inspiring and gave a glimpse into what America would be under his leadership. His address to the Turkish Parliament also went amazingly well. The line that I found, together with countless news agencies, is this: "Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not and will never be at war with Islam".

Watch this short video that I obtained from Reuters and listen to the inspiring words of Mr Barack Hussein Obama.
