"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done, On Earth As It Is In Heaven" - Kuala Lumpur

Similarly, when we pray, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”, we cry out for the living God to invade our being and we petition for His intervention in our lives.

In heaven, when God gives a command, the angels obey. We do not fully know how free will operates for the angels, but reading Scriptures, we discern that at one point in cosmic history, one-third of God’s angels fell, when they chose to follow Satan and rebelled against God. If so, for the rest of the two-thirds of angels that chose to stay with God, chose to carry out the will of God fully and willingly.

If we then make the petition “God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven”, we are actually saying that if God commands, we will obey fully as the angels do!

Do we individually and corporately exemplify radical obedience and full submission to God, as the angels do?

For the ultimate example of ‘on earth as it is in heaven’ obedience, we need to look to Jesus. Who, emptied Himself of heavenly privileges, humbled to the place of a bond-servant, and was obedient to the point of death on a cross.

Jesus also reveals His willingness to align His will to the will of His Father within the Trinity, despite being co-equal with His Father, even to the cross.

Through the cross, Jesus taught us that there cannot be any obedience to God that is not total. Imagine if Jesus had decided on a half hearted salvation plan. Imagine that He chose to skip the suffering of the cross and took a fluffy message of love to the world instead. Where would we be today? Therefore, Jesus’ obedience to the Father’s will is also the very essence of Jesus’s righteousness.

I have asked myself many times at what point of my submission to the will of God is sufficient for Him. I have learnt that our wilful obedience to do His will is one of the highest form of worship that gives Him glory and so we must all wilful obey Him and do His will as our Lord Jesus did, to glorify Him!

This is Pope Francis speaking humbly and truly from His heart, without the protocol and decorum. A man of God, contrite in spirit, appealing with a gentle voice to unite His churches, His kingdom on this Earth. In a similar precedent, Our Lord Jesus, The Word in flesh came down to Earth from Heaven and spoke to us some 2000 years ago, contrite in spirit and without protocol and decorum spoke gently to us, “Do My will on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

While the churches have to pray fervently to seek our Lord Jesus’s will for this country, there is one thing I am sure that is in our Lord’s will tonight and that is there must be total unity in the Body of Christ in this beloved country of ours.... ›› more

Shaking up classrooms with 'Word Mania Challenge' - Kuala Lumpur

In a short two months, the ’Word Mania Challenge’ saw 1,618,550 games played nationwide, 35,000,000 words spelled, 2,760 supportive teachers, 70,000 student participants and 2,000 schools involved.

All of this was achieved with only minimal publicity through social media, demonstrating the power of the Internet to make learning content such as the Word Mania game go viral. “The competition has established a greater sense of camaraderie between teachers and students as they worked together to vie for a place among the leading schools. It has been so encouraging to see such a variety of schools participating in the competition, including 118 schools in East Malaysia. The Internet access provided through the 1BestariNet project has enabled schools across the country regardless of location to have an equal chance in participating in competitions such as this,” said Lou Yeoh, FrogAsia’s Executive Director.

A fine example of how the ‘Word Mania Challenge’ has changed students’ perception of learning English is the story of Muhammad Qasri Hakim Bin Hj Khairul Anwar from SMK Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. Coming from a single-parent family with limited Internet connectivity at home, he stayed back after school for hours, and at times resorted to borrowing a Yes 4G Dongle from his teacher, Puan Nadila Mohd Yusoff, to play the Challenge at home. “I never thought that learning English could be so fun and exciting. The interactive activities made me want to learn more everyday. I was determined to make a name for myself and my school by joining this Challenge.”

Teachers from participating schools also felt that the Challenge made an impact on their students. They hope to see more initiatives like the ’Word Mania Challenge’ in the near future. Pn. Hjh Halimah Bt Hj Abd Hamid from SMK Datuk Panglima Abdullah in Sabah, said, “I have never seen my students so interested in learning English. The Internet made lessons not only engaging and interesting but also addressed each student’s learning needs. I highly encourage other teachers to use the ‘Word Mania Challenge’ in their classes.”... ›› more

YTL MD Tan Sri Francis Yeoh hosts CEO of Kering François-Henri Pinault - YTL Community

A family-controlled, listed company, Kering is a world leader in apparel and accessories, which develops an ensemble of powerful brands. Formerly known as PPR, the brand first invested in the luxury sector, with a 42% acquisition of Gucci Group NV. More acquisitions followed to build a stronger luxury identity for the Group: Yves Saint Laurent (now Saint Laurent Paris), YSL Beauty and Sergio Rossi, followed by the jeweller Boucheron. Kering brands housed in Starhill Gallery include Sergio Rossi, Boucheron and McQ by Alexandar McQueen.

Hosting the CEO and his team, Yeoh threw a grand dinner for the Kering party at The Ritz -Carlton Kuala Lumpur.

Sharing about Kering Group during the evening, Pinault talked about the change of name from the widely known PPR to Kering. The change of name was an opportunity to reaffirm the Group’s international dimension while acknowledging its origins in the Brittany region of France.

"Ker means home in my language and ing is the English suffix which means movement. It's a sense of going forward, building something and it's the 'House of Brands'. And of course we take care of the brands. So that's the idea behind the Kering name," he said.

Kering has luxury brands which have ventured all over Asia, and Pinault stressed that Asia remains a hot spot for luxury brands.

"For tourism in key cities like Kuala Lumpur, New York and Paris, there is a tourism dedicated to consumer goods, and particularly luxury goods. When you go to a resort you don't go to shop, but when you travel to discover a big city, retail is part of the experience. So we need to make sure that we are in the best malls.

"I must say that what I see here in Kuala Lumpur - Starhill Gallery, Pavilion, or KLCC are very high standard malls, offering not only luxury but luxury in a very dedicated space with other different brands for the type of customers. So it's well balanced and we can make sure that we bring in nice assortments that could be very attractive to people coming to this city to shop," said Francois Pinault of Kering.... ›› more

Radical revamp of Malaysia's education by Idris Jala - The Star

Subsequently in 2013, we enrolled 5,000 English teachers who have not met minimum C1 proficiency into an upskilling course or ProELT programme conducted by the British Council. Preliminary results of 4,350 teachers shows that 76.4% managed to improve by at least one proficiency band. The training of the second cohort of 9,000 English teachers has commenced with another approximately 10,000 teachers to be trained starting end of this year.

Another example is using technology to leapfrog the quality of our education. About 90.5% of public schools across the country have been connected with high-speed internet access (4G technology) through the 1BestariNet programme and all these schools also have access to a learning programme called Frog’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) provided by YTL. It establishes a common knowledge platform for students and teachers and utilises technology to enhance teaching and learning. ... ›› more
