Elvis and Chloe Wedding 30, August, 2014

Yooozzz! Hadn’t attended wedding ceremony for quite some time.
So, I attended a wedding of a looooong time friend yesterday. In fact, we used to be in the same CG.
Hmm, if I remember correctly, Elvis invited me to join the Cell Group when I was just a walk in~~~
So, the big day arrived!!!

CHC Trial 29, August, 2014 (Day 67-Day 20 Tranche 5)

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-kong-hee-did-not-give-full-disclosure-to-protect-the-crossover/

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-wahju-hanafi-couldnt-have-made-payments-in-a-vacuum-says-kong-hee/

Hmm, I keep seeing this pattern of Q&A.
Quite a few times, the prosecution kept mentioning the investment was sham.
Quite a few times, Pastor Kong responded by saying it was not sham as there was every intention to repay the bond as one can see from the various budget planning.
Shouldn’t the prosecution refute it by saying there was no intention to repay the bond? Or, is it just me?

Indeed, Pastor Kong did not reveal some facts from the Executive Members and Management Board.
When I first heard it, I found it unusual.
Now that Pastor Kong has mentioned the reason, I can understand.
Crossover Project may be a sensitive project and Pastor Kong wasn’t legally required to reveal some of the facts.

Prosecution mentioned the leaders were the ones controlling the fund by telling Wahju when to pay the fund.
It turned out that the reason was because Wahju needed guidance as he was not involved in daily operation of Crossover Project.
Hmm, the explanation makes sense, actually.

I am glad to hear Pastor Kong can explain evidence after evidence.
Really, it pays a lot to hear the leaders explaining their action!!
Now, break period, everyone~~~

CHC Trial 28, August, 2014 (Day 66-Day 19 Tranche 5)

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-kong-hee-defends-use-of-bonds-to-repay-interest/

Pastor Tan was tasked by Pastor Kong to find out ‘real money’ outside the bonds between CHC, Xtron and Firna.
Indeed, when I first heard about this line, I had this impression about round-tripping.
However, now that Pastor Kong has explained the context, things become clearer.
They were just waiting for the album to be launched, hence Xtron issued more bonds to pay the interest to church.

Well, I understand there were various reasons for album not to be launched.
If only the album had been launched…. perhaps Xtron would have gained much profit to prevent this apparent round-tripping…

In research, one of the best ways to ensure an experimental result is accurate is that the researchers should carry out different experiments.
All the results should then link to one another, leading to one complete, flowing story.
Well, it won’t be just an ‘article’ or ‘communications’, it will be a ‘full paper’.

Reading the news on prosecution’s questions, it is clear that the prosecution tried their best to break the link in Pastor Kong’s chain of arguments.
They asked questions upon questions upon every email.
By God’s grace, Pastor Kong’s argument has been consistent and the link has not been broken.

Yessshhh!!! That’s Pastor Kong for you and me!!!

CHC Trial 26, August, 2014 (Day 64-Day 17 Tranche 5)

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-role-of-chew-eng-han-focus-of-questioning-today/

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-eventual-album-sales-projection-gave-reasonable-prospect-of-return-says-kong/

Hmm, Xtron bond could have been a junk bond. Really confusing.
The lawyers drafted the bond agreement. At first they did not mention it was junk bond.
Later on, they told Pastor Kong it was a junk bond.
How would Pastor Kong know about it, really, since he relied on their advice?

Hmm, there was a suggestion to encourage the church members to purchase Sun’s mandarin album Embrace.
Well, too bad I do not understand Chinese.
If I did, I might have considered buying it. Hehehe~~~

Go go go, Pastor Kong! Stay strong! The LORD is with you!

CHC Trial 25, August, 2014 (Day 63-Day 16 Tranche 5)

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-prosecution-continues-to-accuse-kong-hee-of-full-control-over-xtron/

http://www.citynews.sg/2014/08/city-harvest-trial-kong-hee-how-much-clearer-could-it-be/

Hmm,

Hmmmm, according to Pastor Kong, he was very open to brother Foong. Brother Foong even knew Xtron had losses.
Yet, he didn’t say it was a sham bond.
According to prosecutors, brother Foong didn’t say it was sham because Pastor Kong had not told him some other information.
One may wonder what additional information Pastor Kong should have told brother Foong, really.

On the other hand, Pastor Kong admitted it he lacked understanding on how the bonds work, leading him to email Justin Herz to delay payment.
I remember Pastor Kong mentioned on the stage he lacked wisdom on certain transaction.
So, I guess, this is one of those moments.

Anyway, all the best, Pastor Kong! My prayer is for you!

Escape Game (Connexion) 24, August, 2014

Finally!!! We had another unofficial event of Connexion… Escape Game!
Hmm, they actually had other outings this month: Bukit Timah Trail Walk and Movie outing: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
However, I didn’t join them as I had other activities on Sunday too.
So, I joined them yesterday and it was …… well, interesting.

240820148869 240820148866 240820148868

We came in to Freeing SG at Bukit+ at Level 7.
Full of confidence that we would be able to solve the puzzle and escape from the room.
In the end….

240820148874 240820148872 240820148873

None of us managed to escape the room in 45 minutes!!!!!
Ahhhh!! So demoralizing!!

240820148871

Never mind, we are confident we can do better next time.
Hopefully we can organize another one when there is another promotion~~
After playing we became… hungry!!
So we went to Hawker Center around Albert Street.

240820148884 240820148887 240820148888

240820148892 240820148875 240820148876

Nice dinner, agree? Agree? Well, guess which one was my dinner?
Stay tuned for more update on Connexion event, ok?
