Relax, It's Just A Bend

Everyday is a new beginning.

Life is not about finding the right person,
but in creating the right relationship.

It's not how we care in the beginning,
but how much we care till the very end.

Often when we lose all hope and think it's the end,
God smiles from above and says,
"Relax dear, it's just a bend. Not the end."

Perth - View from Swan River

Set aside one day to go to Rottnest Island another of Perth's favourite playground. Located just 19 km offshore, an island with pristine bays and white sand beaches to laze about, snorkel in turquoise water, go fishing or simply to just "chill out".

The best way to get to the island is by ferry, Rottnest Express, which currently departs from three terminal; Barrack Street Jetty at Perth City, the B-Shed at Fremantle and Northport at Rous Head Harbour, also at Fremantle.

We took the early morning ferry from the Barrack Street Jetty, because it has the added benefit of a picturesque cruise along the majestic Swan River to Fremantle.

Perth - Kings Park Bortanic Gardens

Kings Park is the largest inner city park in the world; 4.06-square-kilometre (1,003-acre) of a mixture of grassed parkland, picnic areas, botanical gardens and natural bushland. The plants at the park are mostly native Western Australian. New York's Central Park is only 3.41 km².

The park is positioned on Mount Eliza, therefore it offers a panoramic view of the Perth CBD, Swan River and Darling Range. It is here where many of the photos of Perth skyline are taken.

So don't forget your camera if you want great photos of the city and of the Swan River.

Kings Park is one of Perth's popular tourist and local visitor destinations. It is Perth's playground and is sometime said to be everybody's backyard.

Why God Gives Us The Holy Spirit

Ephesians 1:13-14
13 And now you also have heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
14 The Spirit is God's guarantee that he will give us everything he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.
You might say that the Holy Spirit is our "identifying mark" as a Christian. In this text we see three specific reasons God gives us his Holy Spirit.

  1. The Holy Spirit is a Promise. Once again, scripture reminds us that God has promised to send the Holy Spirit to all those who have heard the good news of the gospel and trusted Christ as Savior.
  2. The Holy Spirit is a Seal. The Holy Spirit serves as a mark of ownership, showing that we belong to God.
  3. The Holy Spirit is a Guarantee. The Holy Spirit also represents God's pledge to bring us to our final spiritual inheritance. This work could also be translated as a "first installment" or "deposit" signifying that his sealing in our lives is a foretaste of much more to come!
God gives us the Holy Spirit not only to enable us to live out the Christian life but to prove that we are precious in his sight.

Perth - Dinner at Chinatown

It's been said by some Perth locals that officially, there is no Chinatown in Perth.

However, by virtue of the fact that there are many Chinese restaurants concentrated along Roe Street at the suburb of Northbridge, it has been deem the 'unofficial' Chinatown of Perth. It even has a pagoda archway adorned by two lion statues on either side of the arch, to mark the place. Restaurants are the mainstay attraction of visiting Chinatown.
