AT LAST I SUCCESSFULLY CREATED AND PUBLISHED MY FIRST EVER COFFEE TABLE BOOK using Blurb. It is a forty-page landscape print showcasing my very own images taken during my travels locally and abroad using my dependable-companions, Sony Cybershot and Olympus (for underwater).

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED to have a signed copy of this book, you can join my "Grab a Copy" contest which details will be posted very soon. Your comments are also welcome. Please watch out for my 2nd book entitled, My Travel Blog...

For every journey there is a story to tell... and this is my own story. Unfolding before your eyes through the images I captured during my travels...

The meaningful life according to Rick Warren

I borrowed some books from my cousin’s friend including the inspirational and life-changing book of Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life.

Actually, I got my personal copy from my cousin when I visited the US four years ago. But that time I was not ready to discover Warren’s charisma to inspire millions of people around the world about the true essence of living. Maybe, this is timely now to find out why this book is considered as a priceless gift for everyone who wants to know the purpose of their lives and fulfil their own destiny in God's plan. I will try to come-up with a journal or notes about my personal discoveries and hopefully be able to inspire other people to embrace the greatness of God!

Im already half way through with the book and so far it is refreshing to learn God's words. Warren's style of writing is easy to follow and the discussions/contents are encouraging and transforming!

The book provided us the five purposes for our life on earth: To be a member of his family, a model of his character, a magnifier of his glory, a minister of his grace, and a messeger of his Good News to others. Specifically, according to Warren the following are our 5 purposes in life: You were planned for God's pleasure, You were formed for God's family, You were created to become like Christ, You were shaped for serving God, and finally, you were made for a mission.

The purpose of your life is far greater that your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It's far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest

There is no fear in love; perferct love drives out all fear...

God does not want anyone to be lost, but He wants all people to change their hearts and lives.
