Boy: Mummy! Mummy! Look what I found in the toilet! It has strawberry jam on it! Yummy!

Like this!

Mummy: No! Baby where did you get that? Throw it away! Its dirty!

Boy: What mummy?

(Too late)

Boy: Mummy, the jam is quite slimy.

And that is how I was born.

I am Edward Cullen.

Those bricks

Lego.

A name, a brand and a symbol known to the world.

If a kid in this century doesn’t know what Lego is and ask something like this:

You might as well confiscate all of the technology toys they have and buy ONE ACTUAL Lego for your kid to have the ACTUAL childhood experience.

Lego  got its name dated back in 1934 founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Billund, Denmark who made wooden toys at first in 1932 before he sets up the Lego Group.

Lego is not just a toy. It is a bunch of plastic bricks that make anyone to become an architect, an engineer, a mechanic or anything because Lego builds your imaginations and dreams.

How? If anyone gave you this:

What would you do with it?

A. Stare at it and says ‘oh great! A pile of junks!’

B. Stare at it because it looks delicious.

C. Quickly get a vacuum cleaner

D. Stare at it and starts to stack the bricks one by one carefully and create something, anything.

I choose D. Because from a stack of bricks can turn to this:

Legendary. An ART!

I will keep the Lego till death. Irony statement from me. Let me tell you why.

I had my first Lego when I was 2, 3 years old. I can’t remember.

My dad used to buy boxes of Legos such as Lego City, airport, town and things.

Me and my brother and sister would build towers, streets, aeroplane, ships and play with the little figures. We became the architect, engineer, policeman, fireman and destroyer because at the end of the day those buildings will eventually be destroyed by, mua.

Well, I was a kid back then and the bricks got lost here and there one by one until none left. I felt regret till death! How doofus I was. But hey, I was a KID and I barely understand the value of money at that time. Admit it, if you are smiling right now flashing back your time as a kid, you too is a toy destroyer. I did not destroy them, I just lost them. On behalf of my defend. (smile)

I think I invented Lego zombies.

I used to take off the Lego’s head, arm or anything. I do not torture them, I just like to dismantle and attached them back. Trying to feel how God feels like. They look like zombies but was not approved. Too brutal for kids. Not now. Brutal is the new game for kids nowadays. Evolution.

Back then, Lego is affordable. With RM30++ one can get a Lego city or Lego pirate. Big box.

But now, you can get a big box of Lego with the price of RM290++ and above, some reached up to RM1k ++.

Arrr!! Me wanz ur mohney!

Value of money. A small box of Lego containing only this will cause RM39++.

Last time it cost only RM5++.

It’s amazing what Lego can do in our childhood time. From fantasy of experiment to a real job. In fact some people became a Lego master.

Jesus Christ. These people were married to Legos!  I wish I can too.

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith used Legos as an inspiration for a Bible Study. Thus he created a web page named ‘The Brick Testament’ http://www.thebricktestament.com. Here, the stories in the Holy Bible were illustrated with Legos. Easier for little children to understand the word of God in a more creative approach.

Lucifer looks like Edward Cullen.

Even Vader and Luke Skywalker tribute a respect to Jesus in the picture.

Numbers of interesting pictures and illustrations embedded with the values and laws that Heavenly Father taught in the Holy Bible.

Lego serves its functions as an educational toy.

From a simple stack of plastic bricks:

To these:

Careful son. He is Jesus

While I can make these:

It’s not as easy as it looks like. No, its not 2 pony horsie.

It’s the beauty of Lego.

Thanks to the Malaysia government with the co-operation of Lego Group, we can now experience the real life LEGO in LEGOLAND Malaysia Theme Park, Malaysia first international theme park located at Johor Bahru and is schedule to be launching at the end of 2012.

I’m jealous of them! I want to swim in those Legos!

Cross finger. Dear God, do not let judgement day falls at the end of 2012. Let me explore the LegoLand Theme Park first. Amen.

I will conquer you soon! Arrrr!!

 

Dear God

Now these prayers make me smile.

1. “Dear God,maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they each had their own rooms. It works out OK with me and my brother.”

2. “Dear God, in Bible times, did they really talk that fancy?”

3. “Dear God, did you mean for giraffes to look like that or was it an accident?”

4. “Dear God, I want to be just like my daddy when I grow up but without so much hair all over.”

5. “Dear God, are you actually invisible or is that just a trick?”

6. “Dear God, it must be super hard to love all the people in the world, especially my brother. I don’t know how You do it.”

7. “Dear God, thank You for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy.”

8. “Dear God, I heard the moon was made of cheese. Tonight half of it is missing. Did you get hungry?”

9. “”Dear God, please take care of my daddy, mommy, sister, brother, my doggy and me. Oh, please take care of yourself, God. If anything happens to you, we’re gonna be in a big mess.”

10. “Dear God, I say your prayer every night, ‘lead us not into temptation and deliver us some e-mail’ but I never get an e-mail from you. Do you have my right address?”

11. “Dear God, when my mom makes leftovers, do I have to pray for the food again?”

12. “Dear God, did the unicorns miss the ark? Too bad the skunks didn’t miss.”

Funny kids prayer at http://www.beliefnet.com

Having a faith like little children is all that God wants us to have. Prayers, then, will be happier and relax.

“Truly I say to you, Unless You turn around and become as young children, you will by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.” Matthew 18:3 (NWT)

Three things that I cannot live without

Couple of times people asked me this one big question:

If you were given a chance to choose 3 things in your life and carry it to death, what would it be?

When I was still young and naive, my answers would be:

1. Money

2. Power

3. Fame

Big smile.

As I grow older, I changed the list couple of times.

1. Money

2. Health

3. Happiness

Again,

1. Money

2. Power

3. Happiness

How naive I was.

Bet I am not the only person with those list.

And I noticed 1 thing that never change in the list.

Money.

Money money money must be funny in a rich man’s world.

In this world, without money means zero tolerance of survival.

Materialistic world. Gadgets. Splendid food.

Which eventually leads to….

Desire.Gluttony. Greed. Sloth. Jealousy. Revenge. Death.

So many things especially the media continuously feed us with the images of happiness that those rich people can get until we get envy.

It is like the world is feeding them and they are always HUNGRY!

And I worked my *** hard for those things too. I want the world and I want it badly.

Until one day when I realised how I have made a wrong decision.

My journey has opened my eyes that were blinded by all of the wealthy stuff.

My mind set things on the earth. Yet inside, my soul is tormented.

Of course we need money for food, shelter and clothes. Those are the basic living things for a human since the beginning of time in order to live in this cruel world.

But, I came to realised that I do not need money for happiness.

Money, love. Notice at the sharp edges around the money. Gaining love through money has its own price.

At one point, my life went upside down just like anyone else have ever experienced or worst and money did not guarantee to fill the hole of a heartache, emptiness, a weary heart and disgrace.

I then realised what I have been missing for such a long time.

A spiritual love from Our Heavenly Father.

Compare with the money for love, are there any sharp edges in this picture? Love by God?

He is always there but I did not reach out my hands to Him.

He is always there listening to my whining-never-seems-to-satisfy desire.

I am the lost sheep. I desperately need my shepherd.

I realised that I do not want to be Mr. Krabs.

And now, when people asked me the same question, I would smile and proudly tell them:

I want:

1. The Heavenly Father

2. His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, and

3. The Holy Spirit.

I received all of these since The Almighty blew his breath into my soul.

And I want them to be in me for the rest of my life till death and till eternal life.

The best thing is that I can rephrase the question:

If you were given a chance to choose 3 things in your life and carry it to death, what would it be?

It’s not even a choice, I already received the greatest gifts from Our Heavenly Father.

Freely given, freely received.

We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. (Holy Bible, NIV)

No cost, no hidden charges, no string attached.

Free redemption of sins, free forgiveness of sins, always got a room for chances.

Thank you LORD, for reaching my blindness and came to my aid.

Amen.
