A new year with a new start

Cant’ believe that we got the transfer letter past few months ago and now we are back to Kota Kinabalu. With the reason of New Year and new resolution and my lovely husband has given me a new laptop, I guess I should get back to the habit of writing. Since I have not been actively writing, I have also stop the habit of reflecting.

Times flies so fast that my baby girl is 21st months old now. I still remember the contraction pain when she was in my tummy and now when I look at her, she is so grown up now. She understand what I converse with her and she can also tell me what is in her mind though only one word at a time.

God has been so good to us. He gave us this precious little gift and also provide our family needs.  The struggle is always real, but each struggle, we get to taste His faithfulness and providence to our family and with this, it strengthens our faith ‘muscle’.

I think what strange is that coming back here feels like we have returned home. Everything just seems so nice to start with and of course a good environment to raise a kid. A place where you can see beautiful sunset, going to the beach, walking around the mall, people are friendlier and everywhere is just 10-15 minutes drive. I guest one of the not so good things about Kota Kinabalu is the high living expenses that we have to face. But God is good and He always provides. So, I gonna end this post with a high note knowing that the best is yet to come.

Old times thoughts

When we were just friends - Year 2005
When time flies so fast, sometimes we forgot to look back and give thanks or look back and reflect how faithful God has been to us. As I search back some old photos, they are full of memories. Lots has come and go. Lots has their own family now.

God is good and He always is. Looking back at old photos also make me realized how much my husband has grown. The first day I met him, he is like this kid that talk non-stop, talk without much thoughts, and responsibility is not his priority.

1st year of long distance, 2nd Year of dating - Year 2007
Today, by the grace of God, this young kid has transformed to be a man. A man that loves God more than anything, loves his wife and his daughter so much. A man that have careful thoughts of his words and action and a man that has a big heart for people around him.

1st year of marriage - Year 2012
Being able to witness to his growth is truly my joy. I remembered back then when he told me, if one day, he is ready to lead as a man in the family, he will marry me and he kept that promise. One thing that never change is that he makes me laugh a lot. Today, he still makes us laugh a lot.

3rd year of marriage - Year 2015
Knowing that God has us in His palm, we look forward for what is ahead of us. The best are yet to come and we are excited about it.

Ms Gabriella Wong

The last photo of me being pregnant
Time has passed so fast and it’s been two years since my last update on my blog. Lives has been pretty busy as well. We have moved from KK to KL now for one year plus...

I have given birth to the prettiest little girl called Gabriella Wong Qi Yue. Her name is so special. The story of giving birth to her is a beautiful story of the Lord’s grace and mercy upon us.

Gabriella means God is my strength
Wong is her surname
Qi means miracle
Yue means favor

We would like the Lord’s favor to be upon her life as she grow and she will know that the Lord is her strength and with God, she has nothing else to fear. When the Lord is with her, anything is possible. 

During the whole process of giving birth, both my husband and i feel that it is a miracle. Therefore, her name has the word miracle in it.

She has turned 13th months now and she bring us tons of joy and laughter. Of course there are some part of the journey is not easy and filled with worries.

But as I looked back today, I know God is faithful and His grace is always sufficient.

Therefore, I gonna revive this blog again and hopefully to post more often on Gabby’s milestone that one day when she is old enough, she can read her mother’s journey of life. How God has been faithful to us and how good He is.

It’s been a while..

It’s been awhile since my last update
It’s been awhile since the last time my soul feels so down
It’s been awhile since the last time I realized that I am so weak and small
It’s been awhile since the last time I feel so discouraged
It’s been awhile since the last time tears falling down without notice
It’s been awhile since the last time I hold all in and tell myself it will be alright

May the Lord sees all these and remembered what your servant has sacrifice for you…

** It’s been a while **

I’m pregnant…

This is the very exciting chapter for us as we are opening a new chapter in our lives. To be honest, we didn’t expect this baby but we trust God that He has His prefect timing and we are really grateful for this precious gift.

Up to today, I am in week 12 and 6 days. Throughout the whole pregnancy, it wasn’t easy. We found out about this pregnancy in a very early stage and I feel very fine by then… Just feel like normal and eat like normal. When I reach week 6, goodness me… I started to feel nausea and hardly manage to get up from the bed. The only position that I am comfortable with is lying down position. I hardly eat… hardly do anything. Sometimes I feel sick.. sometimes I feel weak.. sometimes I just feel like lying down and do nothing. Of course, lying down and do nothing is very boring. But I am grateful that I didn’t vomit and I hope the whole nausea process is slowly drifting away. I counted my blessing every day because I heard some people feel even worse than me and he period last longer than me. When I told them about my ‘evening sickness’, many agree that I consider the blessed one.

So, I am grateful… and truly grateful.

This is me in week 11. Sometimes my tummy is bigger, sometimes is smaller and now, there are comments that say I still don’t look like pregnant.

This is my baby second photo where the baby is in week 11 and 2 days according the doctor's ultrasound calculation. The baby is only about 4cm but the baby is moving actively inside. When we saw that, we were so excited and just amazed with God's amazing gift and creation. We are grateful that we are part of His creation. Doctor said baby is healthy and strong. I think every mom will be very glad to hear that from the doctor.

 Till then, that's all from us. Will update you guys again...

Carmen Lim

Danny and I loves this little girl so much... She is really cute.. She has grown a lot now...
I still remember when she's really young... 

This was taken when she's 8 months old if I am not mistaken...

This was taken last year November... She is about one year and 1 months old. 
Isn't she lovely and cute.... Just looking at the photos I am already missing her... She is so adorable. 

** We love this kid **

A story

Everyone has a story...
Every couple has a story...
Every family has a story....
Some are very nice story...
Some are not very pleasant story...
No matter what stories they are in each family, God has a purpose...
With God, he can turn ugly to beauty...
He can turn unpleasant to pleasant...
Some stories that we see in drama series will turn to become real life stories...
And when we heard those stories that happen in the lives of someone close to us, it wasn't pleasant at all...
Hearing some of these stories reminded me again not to judge anyone without knowing their stories... They might have a very difficult story... They might have a very painful story...
Christian or non-Christian, leader or priest, man or woman, we are all fallen human being trying to live a life under God's grace and mercy, trying our best to love one another... But there are times we fail, we need extra grace, extra mercy and extra love. Who are we to judge when God is the ultimate judge. A hand to lift them up is more meaningful than a finger that point at them. 

No matter what stories, I always believe God has a purpose, God has a reason and He always can turn ugly to pretty and His plan is always the best.

Gianna Lim


As you all know that Grace Li is my one and only best friend... And last month, I manage to grab a few days leave to spent some quality time with her and her new born baby girl, Gianna Lim... She is so gorgeous and cute... Just before I meet Gianna personally, her mom send me her picture and I've already fall in love with her. When I meet her, she's just so adorable and I wish I can see her grow like I see Carmen and be in her life and she will grow up knowing that I'm her mom's best friend and I love her so much. 

That smile of her can just melt my heart straight away. When I hold her, she's smiling with me when I'm talking to her mom... That moment is just priceless... I think any parents will trade anything to just see their son or daughter smile.

The short 4 days going back to Sandakan and hanging around with her and Gianna is wonderful. I hope we will have more of that hangout in the coming future. 

** She's really cute **
