Most of her songs were written while she served in the worship team at Sungei-Way Subang Methodist Church for 17 years. She served as Music Director for 14 years.

She has also composed fast and jazzy songs like “Kasih”, “Untuk Mu”, “Jehovah”, “You are the Reason”, “Dengan Sepenuh Hatiku” and others. The song “I Need You” was written when she was just 18 years old. Esther recently signed with Oops! Asia and some of her best songs will be released under that recording label in 2008.
