Trip to City Harvest Church – Kuala Lumpur

Posted in Blogroll, Events, Friends on Monday, April 13, 2009 by Colin Quek

I spent the final weekend of March 09 (27-29th) visiting and helping out in City Harvest Church Kuala Lumpur. Me and 10+ other friends took a coach to the beautiful city of KL on the 27th. Arriving in the later afternoon, we decided to lunch out at the Sunway Shopping Centre. It’s a HUGE place really, I got lost twice.

Spotting an ice skating rink in the heart of the centre, the place is very much like home, as in Orchard Road Singapore. Taking a closer look at the rink, I noticed 2 graceful skaters, one of them apparently giving lessons to the other (the lady in the brown t-shirt).

We had a wonderful lunch at Wendy’s and proceeded to our hotel rooms. 6pm came and I went for a home visit to one of the member’s place. We were very warmly welcome and took part in small group meeting.

 After that it was supper time and then back to the hotel room for the long day ahead on Saturday.

Saturday hit us pretty fast, and very soon we found ourselves busy helping out in the various areas in the church. Here are a few shots of us sweating it out.

Our favorite girl in the whole group, always cheering us up with her infectious laughter

Service started at about evening time and we were off to our various stations. I’m tasked to help out in the Lighting Department. I must say I’ve learned quite a bit interacting with the crew there.

3 of us in the group were invited to share a bit of their lives on the stage that night.

A typical City Harvest Church service comes with Children’s church too. And boy are these children excited about theirs.

On Saturday night we had a wonderful supper at the Asia Food court. Words simply fail to describe the wonderful food there. So here are a few photos, read the happy faces 😀

Don’t ask me about the name of those drinks, I only know they are called “Wow” for the size!

We parted on Sunday afternoon reaching home in Singapore around evening time. Though the trip was only 3 days, I’ve had the honor make so many friends and learn so much.

Changi Airport Terminal 3

Posted in Airport, Blogroll, Changi, Changi Airport, Friends, Places, Singapore, Tourism on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 by Colin Quek

Couple of weeks ago, I took the chance to catch up with 3 photo buddies of mine, after resting so long from doing a photo-shoot together. We decided to visit the new Changi Airport Terminal III, affectionately known as T3.

Trolleys you can find around the premises

I particularly like the main hall area, where its so bright and clear, it will take some effort to get lost.

On of the main attraction has to be the Green Wall. Standing spectacular at five storey high and 300m wide, it contains 25 species of climbing plants.

This is actually a waterfall

Apparently there is an Open House to the public. There seems to be quite a crowd that day.

One cannot mention Changi Airport without bringing into the picture the friendly staff.

There was this sweet little thing on a cart.

One of the main attractions has to be the Sandstone Art Wall. Situated just below the Green Wall, “Welcome”. Caught this budding photographer grabbing a shot of the wall.

I find the posters on the wall very attractive, wish I had shot the others as well

AFC Talentime 2007

Posted in Blogroll, Brunei, Events, Friends, Life on Wednesday, August 22, 2007 by Colin Quek

Had the wonderful honour to be part of Agape Family Center’s Talentime 2007. And Talented the members were. I was treated to such a display of creativity and professional stagemanship, that I have to give them 2 thumbs up.

One thing I would have wanted to add to the photo would have been a short few words from the winners though.

The winners for the night…you can imagine the number of the entire talentime participants.

And not to forget the Judges. One of whom is Mr. Clement Chow, who performed the famous “Count on me Singapore” (the official National Day Song for Singapore).

Really am looking forward to AFC Talentime 2008.
