For He's A Jolly Good Fellow...

Hey hey friends!

Well, isn't this one of the best working weeks of the year? Its like....celebration mood all over! And I heard you school kids got an extra day off tomorrow, eh? Good stuff, guys. :) Well, September is truly a month of it birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, exam-freedom, school holidays....dont you just love Malaysia? Haha. For those who are on a puasa period, hang in there friends...just a few more days to go before you can eat till the cows come home! (but please no walking around town with a cow's head ok?) Remember...think 1Malaysia. Tolerance, understanding, meeting each other halfway.

A quick shoutout to a couple of very very important people in our lives who will be celebrating their birthdays this month of September 2009! Firstly, a very Happy Birthday to Mr. Jojo Yong @ Brownie...! He's one-quarter of the Brownie Quartet in GT Klang, so he'll definitely get a mention here in the RR Blog. Haha. If you see him, he looks like a quiet guy...but deep down in his mysterious mind, I'm sure he's got a plan to take over the world brewing in there! Jojo celebrated his big day on the 14th of Sept. God bless bro...and may you grow up strong to be the best chocolate-looking man in town. Cheers!

Ok...I'm not kidding, but this is how he looks on any given any given time. Haha! Classic pose, bro...

Up next...we have a half-centurian! Errm...somewhere around there, I think. Or was it 45th? 35th birthday this year? Haha. Oh well, I guess we all lost count halfway along the way. A big big shoutout to our Youth Pastor, RR Chaplain, RR National Commander, tongue-speaking, devil-chasing man of God....PASTOR GIDEON LEE! Today is the official day of birth some 50 yrs ago...a man who lived thru many wars, namely WWII, Cold War, Gulf War, Iraq War....

From all of us here in RR and GT Klang, we'd like to wish you Happy Birthday, and we wish you many more years of service unto the Lord, and a head-full of hair for all the days of your life! May your offsprings be as numerous as the stars in the sky and as vast as the ocean. Fuuh...Abrahamic blessing! God bless, cmdr!

Can you believe how fit he looks here? Haha. Oh well, stomach in, chest out...keep a straight face. There you go....recipe for looking good in pics! For those wanting to buy 4D today, number of the day is - 1709.

Well friends...thats all for this round. A big FAREWELL to Cmdr Vincent Chin even as he makes his way back to Australia this afternoon. Its been a good week for him here...catching up with all his loyal fans and increasing his popularity by using the chocolates tactic. Good move! :) Always good to have you back, bro. Have a safe flight and we'll see you again in December! Our prayers are with you.

So friends...have a good weekend, and have a fantastic Raya holidays ahead. As for me, I'll be trying out my songkok, filling up my belly with ketupat and rendang, and trying my luck at collecting duit raya. God bless and we'll see you all again for RR on the 27th of Sept!

Adios...and Selamat Hari Raya!

Colour Your World!

Good morning, rangers!

What a way to usher in the (low key) Merdeka Day celebration! Yes...on the 31st of August 2009, a bunch of totally crazy and fired up Expedition Rangers, commanders and friends decided to have a shootout at each other, all in the name of fun and glory! Yup...we certainly had a blast of a time shooting and killin' each other in a game of Paintball! Imagine this...waking up at 7.30am on a public holiday! Sigh...I dont even wake up this early for work...

And so...after the 32 faithfully gathered in church by 8.15am, we finally made our way to TT Sports Park at Subang Jaya for a morning of absolute thrill. This place is located at a very strategic spot, mind you. Should you decide to jump and roll around like Rambo (and tear your knee ligament in the process), or decide to shoot yourself in between the eyes for fun, there's always SJMC nearby for that! Haha. Remember - Safety first! :)

Needless to say, once the game was every (wo)man for themselves. Rule of the game - Last Man Standing. We divided ourselves into 4 groups, did a lil' cam-whoring and then things got underway. Chaotic, tactical, brutal, and adrenaline-pumping! Perfect way to start off the day, wouldn't you agree? :)

Enjoy the pictures below, courtesy of Nigel Lim and Grace Loh...our dear friends of RR! God bless!

Here's the leaders and rangers signing their life away..."If you lose your head in the process, we will not be held responsible....etc etc"

Some just partied the night away...and woke up wondering, "What happened? Where am I?"

Team 4 - The Good (looking) Ones...except for Trisha! :)

Team Leopard Pants - You'll know what I mean later on...hehe

Team Underage - cos majority of them are below 21 and lack the fully-developed brain of an adult human bean...being, I mean. Haha! Esp that 'Fresher' dude...

Here's the team to watch - All killers and campers! Haha. But they had a good tactic.
Cmdr. Reuben starting the day off with a word of prayer...asking God to preserve our lives and let us live to see the next sunrise. Thankfully, none suffered any bad injuries or wounds. Thank God for that! Its been good, great fun...

This fella was so semangat...he decided to start practicing holding his air gun. Not bad la...he's got the pose and the steady look. Who's this dude, anyway??

Mat Rempits and Minah Rempits of Sel #6!

All geared up and ready for battle! This time...all the guys decided to be macho and come in shorts! For some, this proved to be quite a painful lesson. Haha!
Ah hahh! Leopard on the lose! Check out the pants, wei...classic retro gilerr! Oh well, everyone was out on the hunt for the prized kill - Cmdr. Kenny in his funky leopard pants! Haha...

Shot of the day - The One-Eye-Jack, Amy Tan! Good la...thank God she had her mask on. If not, then end up like Captain Barbossa! Remember that dude from Pirates of the Carribean?

The ladies were fired up for this event. Dunno why...but they wanted to take this opportunity to vent their frustration at some of their favourite commanders and rangers! Haha...

The teams gather in an 'anak ayam formation', waiting for the marshall to shout the countdown before all hell breaks loose! Haha...some even died right at the start...barely 10 seconds into the game! Tsk tsk...

If my memory serves me right...that looks like Amy Tan, who was brave and tiny enough to make a run for the middle bunkers un-noticed!

Tag team in action! To win this game...going solo just wont do it. You need to communicate and cover your teammate's back at all time, supporting and backing up each other esp when it gets hot out there!

I love this pose...our top killers for the day!

Plenty of happy faces after the shootout! Here's Grace and ranger Denyse...and half of Cmdr. Kenny! Sorry gotta lose weight on your face if you wanna fit in! Heh.

This is the part where the macho men gloat about their war injuries. Presenting you....the War Heroes and their Battle Scars! Haha...take a bow, boys. And well done for taking it like a real man!

This legs and the 2 bulletshot wounds belong to Cmdr. Daniel Seliong! Hurray...and congrats for collecting two shots! :)

Poor Cmdr. Kenny...he took one right at the back of his ear. Ouchh! That must have hurt...but nvm. He said its ok...cos he's a man. If the ear fall off, then only cry.
This comments. He was quite proud to collect a souvenir after the game....check out the right leg, just above the kneecap. Hahaha! Nice, round tattoo he's got there! Steady la, Cmdr. Zhi Fung!
Cmdr. Jason Ong with his arm-shot wound. His circular wound didn't turn out as nice as the others! Haha...
Already he's got a forehead that even Sven Goran Eriksson cant challenge...and he had to go and collect a headshot, and make the leftside of his head swell up and grow bigger! Haha...well done, Mr. Bryan!

Our Fresher man showing off to us his home-grown armpit hair....opps, the focus was supposed to be the wound near his ketiak! Haha...I bet this one really hurts...esp when you shower! Should be fun, I reckon! :)

After a hard day's work of saving the universe and making it a better place to live in...its definitely a good time to go and chill out in McDee and have a beef burger! Here's Trisha with her funny looking head shape. Never knew it was this out of shape! Hahahahhaa...just kidding.

Thanks to the magic of camera lenses, Bryan's forehead just got bigger by another 6 inches! Hahaha...

In will encounter some people who are crazy, some who are absolutely mad, and some who are beginning to lose it. Here's a good example of someone who's almost losing it completely. Hahaa...presenting you, the Awesome Foursome (minus one) and Cmdr Daniel....doing something silly with food (as usual)! Haha...

Some of the macho men who showed up for War Day. Good to have Cmdr. Kevin back home (our very own Terrorist Pilot in the MAS Academy).

Our big Paintball 2009 family photo! Dont let these innocent faces fool you into thinking that we had a docile and friendly time of Paintball! was wild and crazy. Remember, keep your friends close. And keep your enemy closer!

Also, a big shoutout to our dear friend ranger Irvin Lim who celebrated his birthday last Friday! God bless bro...looking forward to your return, for good! But I heard your younger sheep brother is swimming back to Msia earleir? :)

Alright folks, thats a rap. Its almost 3am now...and I think....I think....I need to sleep la. Take care, rest well and you'll be hearing from me soon enough. By the time you read this, our dear China man friend from Aussie would have arrived back in Msia! You'll be hearing more on this developing story soon!

More photos from the Paintball outing can be viewed by clicking on our RR Sel #6 Photo Gallery button on the right. Have a fantastic day ahead and God bless!

Param's Malaya Bicycle...

Good morning to you, folks and rangers!

Its 2am now! And yes, I'm back with another one of my 'Inspirational Wednesday' posting. Kinda' missed out on it last week, so here I am with two very special and heart-warming videos, specially for this Merdeka season. I dont know about you...but whenever I watch these award-winning videos, it always moves my heart and puts a smile on my face...knowing that if only these scenes could replay once again in our lives, wouldn't the Malaysia of today be a much better one? Just a little something for us to think about...

I've watched this video many times over...and its really one that speaks of a united Malaysia. And just to put a smile on your face...listen to kids' conversations at the end. It's hillarious!

"Eh, itu dia potong...dia kasi balik ar?" :)

God bless and I hope you'll have a great week ahead. How about something to bless someone from a different race? :) It'll probably be the most memorable thing you've done for someone in a long, long while.

Its good to be a Christian and know it, but its better to be a Christian and SHOW it!

By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another - John 13:35

Also, a big Shout Out to our dearest ranger Peter Siew who celebrated his 16th birthday on the 30th of August! If only you came out a day later, we could have called your our very own Merdeka, I mean! :) Happy birthday, bro! May God continue to lead you and guide you all the days of your life!

God bless and keep on moving to the music!

Good morning friends...

Firstly, allow me to wish all my beloved citizens of Malaysia@Boleh-Land a very Happy Merdeka Day! Yes, its been a another fantastic day of rest for all Malaysians, and plenty to look forward to in the coming years. Much left to be desired, rather...:) And to all our fellow citizens abroad, remember to belt out your best rendition of our beloved Negaraku. And please make sure you do not do anything wise and end up in Kamunting under the ISA ok? ;) Remember, in Malaysia...everything BOLEH!

For me, the Malaysian War Memorial brings back the lesson from schooldays...remembering how our forefathers and champions of the past dedicated their lives for one common cause - to unite the races in Malaya, to form an independent nation, and to bring forth prosperity to the nation. It was a journey that started out with many uncertainties and fear, but nevertheless...the most important thing is to always take a step forward. And we as Malaysians certainly did.

Many years down the road, let us not forget the sacrifices and the many battles fought in the past that has led us to where we are this day. In all things, give thanks to the Lord. Thank Him for this nation, thank Him for being placed in this blessed land. Thank Him for this place we call 'home'...

And so, whats the best way to celebrate Independence Day? Haha...the picture below (courtesy of Grace Loh) should give you a clue...:) Oh well, I'll save this story for another post coming soon! Expedition Rangers Merdeka Day Paintball Bash!

This one's for the nation...

Here's Cmdr. Zhi Fung with his very own 'war memorial' pose...

Happy Independence Day to all of you, from the leaders of RR Selangor #6!

Point to note: Dear Starbucks, now that we've finally run out of B1F1 vouchers, and due to the fact that the vouchers expires TODAY, we will definitely miss you, and all the good times we've had together. Many thanks for all those moments of madness and absolute bliss we've shared together. We'll be back...for plain water.

Goodnight, and God bless Malaysia. Its always good to be home...dont believe me? Ask Cmdr. Vincent. :)
