2 Poems for the new year – sweet freedom

Sometime towards the end of every year, I try to write a poem to reflect and to flip the page to the new year. So, every year, I usually write a single English poem. But this year, somehow I felt compelled to write two, one primary poem in English, and a supplemental one in Chinese. May God bless all with opportunities, wisdom, peace, and lots of love. And my comrades, families, friends and all, most of all, God bless you with the sweet freedom you deserve.

Prudence of being – path of happiness

My late grandparents and late mum were prudent, never indulged in luxury, and only accumulated wealth made by their bare hands through labor.

Leadership and Life Lessons from my reposed mum

My mum passed away in the night. She has braved cancer for more than half a year, and after all the struggles, reposed. When she died, she was shriveled and tiny. We managed to rally around my dad, and got a doctor to certify her death. On November 3, I led the liturgy and laid her ashes to the ocean as she wished. It was a fitting closure as I baptized her in faith as well so many years ago.

There are 2 camps in visual storytelling on broadband and broadcast media – one telling stories aimed at the luxury segment, and another telling stories that tug at our hearts. What kind of storyteller are you?
