Life is a journey. Life is a series of problems and challenges. Life is ever evolving.
Yesterday I celebrated a new #milestone. The birth of #SparePartsAsia, a joint venture between Philippines and Malaysia, a hybrid of tech and conventional business. SparePartsAsia or more affectionately known as SPA, is a true AEC brand (ASEAN Economic Community). SPA was conceived in the minds of her founders only late 2015 but by yesterday, 4 August 2016 she was birthed.
Yesterday myself and Nes (one of my partners) had the privilege of introducing and presenting SPA to an awesome audience. The fact that some folks are showing interest in this brand even before our presentation is a tremendous encouragement and endorsement of our new baby.
All the hard work behind the scenes to make this dream come true has birthed this brand. Now the real harder work awaits!
Years ago, in my entrepreneurial journey, if I was told that I would be achieving a series of milestones, including this latest SPA, I would have given the person a weird look. But today, as I celebrate, I give thanks to the one who makes it possible – my Lord Jesus. By His favor and anointing, it was made possible. And to the person closest to me, my wife who saw the potential in me even before I saw it. Last but not least, to my amazing partners Nes/Jojy/Wilson, thank you for your trust and faith in me, and for the amazing teamwork we are blessed with.
So, what’s next? Keep a lookout for SPA. Asia, we are here!
Today we (myself and wife) are feeling very good and happy. Our sofa whom we have been blessed is now blessing a needy family.
Our good condition sofa is now blessing a needy family
When we were searching for a new sofa set, we were thinking what to do with the current sofa. As it is still in good condition, we could’ve easily sold it for a few hundred at the minimum.
After discussing, we felt and agreed that we want to find a needy family to bless them with this nice comfortable sofa. We went about asking a few charity organizations if they’re interested. However it seems that nowadays these organizations prefer monetary donations.
We then came across someone from World Vision Malaysia whom knows of a needy family. To summarize the story, the sofa is now out of our home and into the home of this family.
This feeling of joy and knowledge that a family is being blesssed is blessing us more than any amount of money will give.
We want to praise and thank God for giving us this idea and blessing us through our giving. It is indeed more Blessed to Give than Receive
I have been writing *ahem* blogging about different topics. I wish to make a dedication to the woman in my life – my better half!
Being married is a bed of roses 🙂 refer to my previous blog. I am not the perfect man and so often we have had to overcome our “self” for the benefit of our spouse.
I am like a King in my home (I do not bully my wife – she treats me very well). When I am unwell, I am accorded the Emperor treatment 🙂 What more can a man ask for…
I remember specifically a time when she hurt her ankle and had to hobble around home with a crutch and yet she insisted on making me my favourite drink when I was home for a short few minutes on lunch time. The sight of my wife making an effort to the kitchen and making that drink is worth more than a billion bucks.
And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him. –Genesis 2:18
I have been blessed with a very capable woman. Some people say beautiful woman has no brains – no intelligence. My wife has proved so many people wrong – she is so versatile – entrepreneur, talented chef, creative designer, outspoken speaker, etc and above all wonderful wife.
I have always wanted a wife who will be the better half – better than me and hey, I found her! My wife is my girlfriend, my woman, my wife, my best friend, my counsel, my intercessor.
Special advice to all the young people reading this blog, finding the right partner in life is important. It will either elevate you in life or pull you into the pits. It does not matter if the right person has not turned up. It is better to wait than to rush into a marriage. Marriage is for life. Trust me – It will be worth the wait!
A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ come together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences — Dave Meurer
Are you a food lover? I will not consider myself a food critic but am appreciative of good food nonetheless.
I am blessed to be able to enjoy delightful cuisine at home and not to have to depend on outside food. All credit goes to my wife, the Iron Chef and Masterchef in our home.
Today I share with you a few of my wife’s delightful drinks and dessert and more in the coming days…
Every now and then, be it while I am doing my work or watching football/soccer or reading the newspapers/books, etc., I will be surprised by my wife serving her creative drinks/desserts. What can I say? I am blessed indeed.
Of course the drinks/desserts always cheer me and refreshes me.
