bye 2011//hello 2012

What a year it has been so far, 2011...

First, I must thank God for everything so far. Without Him, I don't think all my solo projects will be taking off. I believe in His leading and His timing. I believe He has greater plans than even myself can imagine. So looking forward to see what You have, boss-from-above.

This year it's has been an incredible journey. Been to places (although visited Ipoh very often =P) and met awesome people along the way. I just want to express my utmost appreciation to everyone who came to my concerts, had fellowship with us, helped us, prayed for us, bought my album. You never know much your support and presence mean to me and the crew. We are truly blessed by you all.

I also want to express my thanks to crew especially the band members who toured with me. Thanks for the support, help, time and sacrifice. I truly enjoyed our time together. Hope for more fun times ahead!

Not forgetting, I want to express my appreciation to my parents, Jonathan Tse, Rev Chor Kee for all your advice and support as well.

Well, I believe the journey gets better year after year!!
So stay tuned for 2012.. all I can say right now, 2nd coming is inevitable!

**You can read all about our 2011 highlights on the right side of the page**

Hello 2012. See you all there.

Much love

We had a good time worshiping and great fellowship too..
630pm - We visited Take a Break point after knowing it from FB. Tried their macrons, was good.
645pm - After much heard and see about Michangelo, a pizza place at Ipoh, went there to have dinner. Well, the pizzas are oven stone-baked which makes the pizza tasty. Seriously yummy pizza!

Overall, it was blessed journey. Had a great time meeting new friends and old friends as well.

Lots of fun with everyone. I thank the crew that followed :- Gracy, Joanne, Yapp and Mel. On behalf of them, we really enjoyed our time and thank God for a wonderful time.

I wanna thank William Chin and CGBC for wonderful fellowship during our trip there.

In this journey/trip, I did see how God used me to be a blessing and encouragement to others. That fact really made me grateful to Him for His leading so far. All I can do is just surrender to Him and let Him work mightily in everyone's life.

I guess this is the 'last' trip outstation as Christmas period is drawing near. But I guess we will look forward to next year then..

MGM showcase

Went to MGM Songwriters Showcase on 10th September.

MGM stands for Malaysian Gospel Music and its function to promote more local Christian music among Malaysians.

I sang 2 unheard worship songs I composed few years ago.
One of it is among the first worship songs I composed, it's called CRY HOLY. Glad to hear it still speak so much to people as it was in the past.
The other was raw and even before the showcase, I try to re-arrange the melody of the song a bit, try my best to update the style a bit -- called Let Revival Fall. It was a gamble but I took it.. haha.. but glad to receive the feedback and learn from it.

Overall, it was a great experience and a great encouragement to be there. It encouraged me as a Christian songwriter to write good songs for the Lord and see local Christian music impacting the community. I am convicted and hope to bring such message to wherever I go, starting with FCC.

Met the well-know local Christian songwriters like Patrick Teoh and Ps. Ng Wai Lok. Great to be able to interact and get to know them in person.

cheers for 2 years..


It was 1am plus, was practicing and preparing for MGM showcase...took time to say some words and sing a random song...

Anyway, thank God, praise God -- it's been 2 years since THIS ROAD has been out. I m glad how God has used me and this album, my prayer is that it will continue to be a blessing to many others out there.

Keep praying for me and my ministry.. will keep you all updated! =D

Sorry for the delay in the uploading of this video..we were so busy these days.. but hey, no need to fear, finally it's up!

Shine Like Stars // 20th Aug 2011

Philippians 2:15-16 -- ..So that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.

We lived in a world full of despair and hopelessness. However, we all are called to be the light that brings blessing to the people around us.

That is the message we want to bring out in this concert.

Come 20th August, not just we get to know each other more, we get to know our God more and more and enjoy His goodness!

Looking forward to exciting Saturday and I hope all of you can join us.

Shine Like Stars Concert | 20.08.2011 @FCC from Zermi on Vimeo.

See you there!

Reflections on 1st album songs

Nearly 2 years since This Road was launched, I thought it's time for me to share some interesting insights and background about the song list of the album.

1st song – THE ONE
The joy of having someone in your life, in this case, having God in my life means the world to me.

2nd song – MY LIFE
You live for something in life, there is something that drives you to live on. The heartbeat of this song is that I living my life the best that I can for God above.

3rd song – MY TRUST
Life can be tiring and taxing. Despite the challenges, we must strive on and stay strong. Trusting God with all our heart.

The message of the song is simple. United we stand, divided we fall.

5th song – HOPE
Sometimes when the world seems to be too much to bear, sometimes when things seems to be a burden, we can look up to God for He is our hope and strength.

6th song – LOOK INTO THE SKY
As we live our lives, we know that someone up there watching and protecting us.

7th song – YOU REMIND ME
People and friends come and go in life. We meet different people along the way in our lives. This song speaks of a person’s memories and relationship with friends and people

8th song – LOST IN LOVE(amazing grace)
God loves us so much that even though we are imperfect, He gave us grace and mercy. It’s a love that no one can give.

9th song – FAITHFUL
A love song that speaks of gratefulness and love towards God who is always with us through the ups and down

10th song – THIS ROAD
A reflection that life is like a road that all of us traveled on and all of us walk different paths.

Hope you really enjoy this first album and hope you can share it with your friends :)

You can listen some of the songs on my reverbnation and myspace account.

Second album in works, at the meantime, just spread the love around..

TL @ Infuse Encounter Night 230611


Just came back from Ipoh..

Was at Infuse's Encounter Night, leading worship and singing some of my songs there. All in all, had a great time there, the crowd was really pumped to give their all and hearts out to God. I believe God really did something in their hearts. It's a great joy to be spending time together praising His name.

It was simple and humble experience for us, most of all, we are really blessed by the hospitality of INFUSE. Lots of good food outing with them. haha. May God bless this ministry as they shine for God.

FCC Easter 2011 - He's Alive


This is a recorded footage of what happen on Easter this year 2011 at FCC.

On Easter Sunrise service, we did a new song which was self-composed by one of our worship team member...yes...the main credit goes to Lo Shi Seng who compose this song.

The song is titled "He's Alive" -- a celebration cry that Jesus is alive which we all can rejoice and be glad on the fact that we are victorious!

Hope you all will enjoy this song.. I personally enjoyed doing this song especially songs that are self-written and composed. It is always fun to do such songs because you have a sense of joy and ownership to sing your own praise song to God.

And if you interested to know about FCC, you can check us at :D

easter 2011

My easter weekend ...

Good Friday -
FCC run an event that covers the 7 last words of Jesus. Something interesting which we had a simple orchestra plus simple acoustic set of songs with 7 preaching based on the 7 last words of Jesus. Turned out well and the hall was full till the max.

Easter Sunrise for FCC English service.
Me and the FCC WT presented two self-composed songs, primarily written by Ah Seng. It was cool, hopely we as a WT can do more self-composed songs, which honestly I love it and I enjoyed doing it.

Chinese service had this special guest performing while BM service have a great celebration service.

All and all, it's been a good Easter, and I hope this Easter really have impacted your life as much as mine.

May God continue to shine His light upon us.

TL's Easter cover 2011 - how deep the Father's love for us


I was asked to sing this song, How deep the Father's love for us, written by Stuart Townend, on Good Friday 2011 at FCC. With that, I decided to do a simple acoustic guitar cover of that song for everyone else to hear and be bless.

John 3:16
For God so love the world that He gave His son to us, so whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Have a great and meaningful Easter and may the Lord shine upon your life. May the message of the Cross bring salvation and hope to your life.

Thanks to Sam Vun (of Nosensei Production) for the editing.
