Jenet, how are you?
Doin great Chung Lao.
did you grow up?
Jenet: In my early childhood days I grew up in Sri
Lanka, and then I moved to Toronto when I was 10 and it has
been a blast since then!
one word that describes you.
Jenet: I guess I would say I’m pretty straight forward
…so honest I guess would be the correct word!
do you think of IndaPhatFarm.com?
I think IPF is a great
place to connect for people from all walks of life. You
might get what your looking for here…
are currently working on an aid project for needy children.
Give us some more details on this and how people can help.
Jenet: Well currently I’m working on 2 projects to help
Missions Education Fund – This fund is designated to help students
to be able to go to school who otherwise won’t get an
opportunity. Simple reason being they cannot afford to go
to school. We have a Missions Education Fund where people
can donate monthly, annually or give as they please to
sponsor children. The cost is $20/month or $240 annually to
sponsor one child. This will provide for their tuition
costs, uniform, transportation and soon we’ll be able to
provide one meal for them. You can never learn on a hungry
stomach! It is a recognized charitable organization so that
means your donation is fully tax deductible. We have
expanded ourselves from Toronto to other parts of Canada,
USA & Trinidad & Tobago. I’m totally amazed at what God has
done since we launched this project. We were able to help
95 children go to school from Congo cross, Wilberforce,
Waterloo, Grafton & Togo assemblies. We have started this
in the continent of Africa for now and with the hopes of
expanding to other countries once we’ve established
ourselves. If you’d like more information, please email me
firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned
for more exciting news coming down the pipe…
Fundraiser for orphanages. –
We are putting on a Music
Gig whereby people can buy tickets to a night of worship,
instrumental jamming, special guest performance, food and
lots of good fun to raise money for 2 orphanages. We will
be hosting our first event in April 2008.
you ever consider leaving Canada?
Jenet: Well I have considered it and moving to the US is
not so bad I guess but I love Canada. And…elsewhere???
That would be tough but it will be dependant on the
circumstances. No we don’t live in igloos, nor do we use
snowshoes…it doesn’t snow all the time and we do have
summers!!!! I live in Toronto so it’s pretty good.
is something the Yanks (including myself) on the other side
of the border can learn from Canada?
Jenet: Umm…send 3 soldiers to Afghanistan so of all them
don’t get killed. Have free healthcare. Keep all parts of
your country clean will ya? =) I feel some tension coming
is your take on George W? How will he be remembered?
I personally thought he did
a great Job. Yes some of his decisions might’ve been
ridiculous but if US doesn’t step in to help other
countries, who is gonna do it? I fully give him credit for
stepping out and doing what he did. I think he will be
remembered as a man who did what he thought was right for
his country and for the world.
someone you admire and why.
Jenet: My mom, the late Mrs. Benigna Poopalan. She was
an awesome woman of God who kept things real! She was
always there to love & support you but never condemned
you. She was the perfect wife for my dad and the perfect
mother for me and Joy. There is so much I can say here but
all I can say is I wish to possess some of those
characteristics in my life!
did your obsession with hockey begin?
Jenet: I’ve had this obsession for a few years now but
in the last 5 years, I’ve really gotten to love the game
more. It doesn’t mean I support my home team though…but it
is definitely a Canadian Team. My whole family is hockey
fanatics, including my dad! Some say that it’s like an
altar call when we watch hockey games in our home…lol

Bible Passage(s): There are many but here are a couple…
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the
desires of your heart.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all
these things will be given to you as well.
1 Chronicles 4:10
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would
bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me,
and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And
God granted his request.
Jer. 29: 11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future.
hear about those skills in the kitchen.
Jenet: Oh noooo! You better ask someone who has tasted
my cooking. Well I actually love to cook and try out new
recipes. I never follow a recipe, I always have to
improvise. Love to bake…and simply create my own stuff.
is the first thing you notice about a person?
Jenet: Eye contact! If he or she can’t look you in the
eye, then something has got to be wrong with them…then of
course their appearance. Do they smell good?
is something you cannot stand in a person?
Jenet: Dishonesty and people who make excuses for
everything! Pet peeve…people who beat around the bush!
Intelligence has learned that you are also a volleyball
fanatic. Do you confirm/deny these allegations?
Jenet: I confirm these allegations 100%. When are we
going to have Volleyball Classics?
Describe the ideal husband.
Jenet: An ideal husband would be God fearing and someone
who has a backbone. He should love God first, his wife,
children and everyone else after. He should be kind,
giving, honest, and loyal, have a good sense of humour and
be able to respect you. He should be able to lead the
family through thick and thin. Of course compatibility in
looks is also needed cuz you have to live with that person
for the rest of your life! =)
Describe the ideal wife.
Jenet: An ideal wife should be able to submit and love
her husband according to biblical principles. Someone who
doesn’t nag and find faults all the time. Also posses all
the qualities listed above for an “ideal husband”.
Describe the ideal cheese.
Jenet: Ha ha! Should we really go there? Ok, so my
favourite cheese is Havarti, but I can simply settle for
Cheddar (medium/mild). No provolone Chung Lao.
job could you absolutely not do.
Excuse me…I can do
everything!!! I’m a superwoman! I AM Jenet! Just
kidding. There are too many to name…where do I start?
Starting with …refer to the next question. =)
nothing but Microsoft Paint, please draw us a picture.
is your take on arranged marriage?
Jenet: It works for some and not for others. I
personally believe in compatibility and being able to get to
know someone so if there are any issues in your marriage
it’ll be you to blame and not someone else for arranging
it. But of course a Marriage arranged by God will last
about interracial marriage?
Jenet: Awesome…I’m totally for it! As my mom used to
say, when you peel the skin off, everyone looks the same.
Yes some will be reluctant cuz of cultural differences but
really, how much of our culture do we embrace??
you predict Toronto will do at the 2008 BSC?
Is TO going to have a team
this year? If they do, maybe somewhere in the middle?
living in the End Times?
Jenet: Absolutely! Everything that happens around us
proves we are living in the End Times.
the ideal church, even if it’s not realistic.
Jenet: A place to freely worship and be able to prepare
you for the coming of the Lord.
Alright, you wake up one morning, it’s Wednesday. The week
seems to be going slowly. As your getting ready for work,
you happen to look out the window.
All you see is blue.
The blue ocean that is. Surrounding your house
is a brief stretch of sand, but for miles around in every
direction, all you see is ocean.
All internet/phone connections are dead. What do
Jenet: I would say, “Yes, I don’t have to go to work!”
Just hope you know how to swim so you are not bored sitting
inside your home. Lie on the sand, take a snooze, wake up
and sip a nice cold drink that comes in a real pineapple,
put up my net and practice some volleyball skills. Can’t
forget the food…so fire up the BBQ.
Lastly, leave us with a parting thought.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own
understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will
make your paths straight
Lao: Appreciate it Jenet. Next up on
is Irfan Jamil. Keep in locked in right
here. Much Love.
