New Adidas Futsal Boots



I think I bought this boots 2 weeks ago, and I have not get any chance to wear it yet, as everybody is busy attending wedding, and go for year end holidays. Looks like I can only wear this during 2010. I paid RM99 after the 50% discount. I think it is really bery bery bery 'tai'.

Hopefully the boots can help to execute my shots better, faster, and more accurate. wuakakakaka.... Come on, guys. I want to play futsal!!!!

New 500GB Seagate External HDD



I have waited for 3 weeks in order to get this from Singapore, paying cheaper price. Good thing is it is not in the market yet, I don't know some how there is a empty head to get it. Cons is the warranty is just for one month only. I already got it for 2 weeks but I just partitioned it last Sunday. Amazing huh? It is a bit thicker than the Free Agent Go, but the sporty look is not that bad too. The colour.... err... I have no choice.

As long as it performs what it made to do, then I won't complain much. Hope it will last for another 5-7 years. LOL... I have to give my old drive to mother, she has a lot of multimedia files to keep too.

Hopefully Seagate drive don't let me down. WD (old) too.

乱掰一下

最近的生活忙到不得了……还分不清楚是自己的时间管理不好,还是太多事情不约而同地向我报道,还是自己想要的东西太多?

我要去这里啦,那里啦;要吃这个啦,那个啦;要提升自己啦,要休息啦;要运动啦,要去旅游啦,要拍照啦,好多啦啦!好想找一天,停下来,整理一下,再出发!

讲了这么多废话,还没进主题,原来我一直都花时间在那些废废的事情上,难怪时间不够用,又没空写部落格。但是,人不能时时刻刻都认真啊!很累的捏!

时间表已经编排到一月底了,好像很漫长,却让我想起又是想想 new year resolution 的时刻了。

加油啊!阿旭!

烦恼

人之所以痛苦,在于追求错误的东西。
如果你不给自己烦恼,别人也永远不可能给你烦恼。因为你自己的内心,你放不下。
好好的管教你自己,不要管别人。
你随时要认命,因为你是人。
这个世界本来就是痛苦的,没有例外的。
你什么时候放下,什么时候就没有烦恼。
每一种创伤,都是一种成熟。
当你烦恼的时候,你就要告诉你自己,这一切都是假的,你烦恼什么?
根本不必回头去看咒骂你的人是谁,如果有一条疯狗咬你一口,难道你也要趴下去反咬他一口吗?
忌妒别人,不会给自己增加任何的好处。忌妒别人,也不可能减少别人的成就。
永远不要浪费你的一分一秒,去想任何你不喜欢的人。
得不到的东西,我们会一直以为他是美好的,那是因为你对他了解太少,没有时间与他相处在一起。当有一天,你深入了解后,你会发现原不是你想像中的那么美好。
这个世间只有圆滑,没有圆满的。
不要刻意去猜测他人的想法,如果你没有智慧与经验的正确判断,通常都会有错误的。
你要感谢告诉你缺点的人。
时间总会过去的,让时间流走你的烦恼吧!
不要因为小小的争执,远离了你至亲的好友,也不要因为小小的怨恨,忘记了别人的大恩。
感谢上苍我所拥有的,感谢上苍我所没有的。
当你手中抓住一件东西不放时,你只能拥有这件东西,如果你肯放手,你就有机会选择别的。人的心若死执自己的观念,不肯放下,那么他的智慧也只能达到某种程度而已。
如果你能够平平安安的渡过一天,那就是一种福气了。多少人在今天已经见不到明天的太阳,多少人在今天已经成了残废,多少人在今天已经失去了自由,多少人在今天已经家破人亡。
恶口永远不要出自于我们的口中,不管他有多坏,有多恶。你愈骂他,你的心就被污染了,你要想,他就是你的善知识。
你不要常常觉得自己很委曲,你应该要想,他对我这样已经很好了,这就是修行的功夫。
世界原本就不是属于你,因此你用不着抛弃,要抛弃的是一切的执著。万物皆为我所用,但非我所属。
学会用理解的,欣赏的眼光去看对方,而不是以自以为是的关心去管对方。
成熟的人不问过去;聪明的人不问现在;豁达的人不问未来。
发光并非太阳的专利,你也可以发光。
你可以用爱得到全世界,你也可以用恨失去全世界。
爱的力量大到可以使人忘记一切,却又小到连一粒嫉妒的沙石也不能容纳。
人总是珍惜未得到的,而遗忘了所拥有的。
如你想要拥有完美无暇的友谊,可能一辈子找不到朋友。
如果觉得有意思,不妨转发给你的好朋友。

Just another conversation between B & S

A boss is having a conversation with his subordinate regarding a subject to shorten the processing time and increase the productivity for the company.




B: When there is a shortage of production capacity, more and more questions people will ask if we want to consume the machine capacity.


S: So, I guess you must be wondering why I asked more and more questions too, besides getting more information. haha....


B: ^_^ :)




Do you know what is the reaction of his subordinate?

I Don’t Want or Need Your Fear

Right before Donald Trump and Mark Burnett launched The Apprentice, I watched an interview with these two powerful producers. The host asked Burnett, “What do you look for in an employee?” His answer, without an ounce of hesitation? “Someone who is comfortable with risk. You can’t do a thing for me if you are paralyzed by fear in the face of risk.”

Here’s the reality. On any given day, your boss, your employer, your clients, they’re scared too. As leaders, their career success has been contingent upon their ability to take risk. Risk is required for innovation and innovation is the name of the game.

Risk is a direct path to fear. If you don’t feel fear, it isn’t a risk. But here’s the key. It’s your responsibility to manage your fear for yourself. Doesn't your boss want you to be honest about your fears? Yes would be the
politically correct answer; No would be the truth. The fact is, fear has this nasty way of feeding on itself. It has the potential to build into frenzied proportions and it can paralyze even the strongest of organizations. Your boss, your investors, and your clients are on the lookout for this.

Big but here—fearlessness has exactly the same effect. Have you ever been around someone who bravely took a risk that made you think, “Could I do that too?” Leaders are always scouting for someone, anyone, who is able to inspire them with a feeling of fearlessness. And mark my words. Fearlessness is something the marketplace values and is more than willing to pay for.

Fate loves the fearless.—James Russell Lowell

Debt Settlement Weekend




Just saw that November payroll was debited into my account, it is time to pay my DEBTS again, 2 credit card bills, car loan, personal debt, and so on... The money just cannot rest well in my account. Looks like I have to do something about it. The repayment for car loan still 5 years to go, really cannot imagine that, even how did I manage to pay that for the last 2 years? Maybe I just don't want they tow my car away.

Credit card bills are something that I can control, but most of the spending is on necessities like petrol, food and so on. Not really spending a lot on clothes and those 'I want' things. Some more, the telecommunication provider's bill is auto credited each month. I don't feel the pain paying it, but I am paying it every month.

Not to mention about the study loan that I have forgotten about it for quite some time. *blek*

Hopefully, the the investment decisions that I've made can help me to yield something in short and long term, else I cannot see I moving away from this rat race soon.

Cammon.... I should proud that I'm still doing well. So, temporary I don't need this.



yeah yeah...

GST is on the way

Ladies and gentlemen, GST is on the way. Be prepared for it. Please read a brief statement from our beloved PM. It would be gentle.

Malaysia is gearing up to introduce a goods and services tax (GST) with Prime Minister Najib Razak stating that he plans to table the first reading of a proposed GST bill before the current sitting of the Dewan Rakyat ends in mid-December, the Business Times reported. He stressed that the GST - if introduced - would not be effected abruptly, but  very gently . It would replace the existing sales and service tax and not burden the poor or middle class, he assured. 

Looks like we have to pay more even when you are shopping in hypermarket. That's going to be extra premium on what you are paying for now. I guess Singaporean are more willingly to pay for it, but for Malaysia... erm... you tell me about it.

放弃

很多很多时候,我们为了那当初的坚持和信念继续捱了下去。可是,很多人都没看见适时放弃的可能性。放弃可以是因为有更好的选择;放弃可以是因为要保护自己;放弃可以是无可救药了;放弃可以是因为任何理由。

我放弃了2009唯一跑大桥的机会,我放弃因为我受伤了。

是合情合理的理由还是推三推四的借口?

我只需要向自己交待。

Penang Bridge International Marathon Dream Vanishing


I guess I have to say bye bye to 2009 Penang Bridge International Half Marathon today. Although I am very reluctant to pull out from this race, but the super unlucky knock on my left knee this afternoon is really aching. That's the consequences of playing with Brandi wearing slippery shoes.

The knock on floor was a hard one. Sigh...

I can only pray that the lightning speed recovery would occur before 12am, then I probably I can join the race with target finishing it within 3.30 hours. Come on...

熊猫回家路


当我得知这部有关熊猫的电影时,顿时愣了一下,到底熊猫要怎样演绎戏里的每个情节,如何表达迷路的表情和情绪呢?既然熊猫电影并不多,还是先把它搁在一旁。

今天,我把这部电影给看完了。我认为这小熊猫太会演戏了。戏中叙述小熊猫为了避免不让熊猫研究所工作人员捉到,便极力逃命,掉入急流,爬起来再勇敢地跑到比较安全的地方。

猎人的大虎和二虎也凭着气味努力的追踪,还好一场大雨让小熊猫保住了小命。戏中的孤儿发现了小熊猫,为熊猫准备食物,帮它取暖,做他最好的朋友。可是,相处了不了多久就被猎人发现了。

孤儿为了不让小熊猫被活活地捉走,便想尽办法让小熊猫回到熊猫妈妈的身边。

这是一部很好看的剧情片,在最后推广保护熊猫活动更是值得鼓励。

Doghouse


A man cannot get over with his divorce and his helpful friends have a good plan for him, a visit to remote village, residented by a bunch of man-eating zombies.

You can see ugly, funny, stupid, fat female zombies along the stories and those guys playing fool with them. Not to say the barber zombie, dentist zombie, fattie zombie, big boobies zombie and so on. To certain extent it is funny, it makes you laugh but it is definitely not my type of movie.

City抛锚了

今天是观音诞,所以约了一些同事到蛇庙去吃斋。那里的素食一直都是我的最爱,食物很新鲜,没有很多的调味料,非常好吃!吃完午餐后,向观音菩萨许了愿,希望人人平安健康,幸福快乐,也赚大钱。

可能我许了好多个愿,当要开车回公司时,我的 Honda City IDSI “死火”了。这次真的 bien zho liao!怀疑是电箱没电了,就叫个Foreman来帮忙换个新的。

RM160换个新的,加上好好的保养,应该可以顶个两年吧!

与其懊恼在这天时地利人和的时候抛锚,好过夜半三更,附近没人,又下大雨的时候抛锚吧!

可能是观音菩萨保佑吧!

心理不平衡

老板问道问什么我最近好想比较累。那绝对是一个很完美的开场白,我说:“因为我不平衡”。

是因为工作量太多吗?是因为对公司的前景没信心吗?

我心理不平衡的因素有好几个,但是最主要的是“钱”。我在公司里工作超过两年了,月薪才必刚加入公司不久的菜鸟多RM110,我一个月的汽油费都不够。

我不想花很多时间在公司里,我跟你讲不是因为我不想继续工作,而是我看不见我能够继续走到哪里,那是非常demotivating的。人,很多时候都应该为自己着想的。

他说他明白我的处境。

我看着他。

他看着电脑荧幕,然后和我谈工事。显然,他不懂如何应对。

我不知道接下来会怎样。

我只知道自己要为自己负责。

Van Wilder: Freshman Year


Van Wilder, a school liberator. Bring in party culture in military based Coolidge based institution. Can you imagine a college without kissing, drugs, boobies or anything that is fun. Well, Wilder does it all.

You'll see hot babes, occasionally half naked, this spices things up. Of course all those ugly and super disgusting things are no longer taken to the limit, just some shits from the famous dog with the largest testicles I ever seen, and a group of 'religious' girls moaning for salvation from dildos. Hilarious...

In Coolidge, the desire for sex and partying just being suppressed by certain rules and regulations, but deep inside, you know guys and gals are just craving for fun and excitement during campus life.

A typical lampoon US movie. Don't expect formal and proper story line, it never happen in Van Wilder movies. Personally, I like it because it is stress-less and you just got to laugh.

The Tournament


Modern people lack of excitements, they try to do something different in life, to fill the emptiness and get rid of boredom. Since long time ago, human fix the odds for cock fighting, football tournaments, and even election, now some clever people begin to find excitement in life betting.

All the world top class assassins gather at United Kingdom, the place with the highest number of CCTV in the world and fight for a luxury prize money of 1 million in a 24 hour tournament. You lose, you are out. If your are injured but not dead, you will be killed using the tracker implanted in the assassins' body.

The most exciting thing is, all this is LIVE broadcasting. You'll see athletic assassin, hot assassin, sick assassin, amateur assassin, pathetic priest, etc. After all, the best selling point of this movie is the odds and of course the action thrilled and blood bath scenes.

Not recommend for kids.

Blood Donation




Donated 450ml blood today, but I was a bit shocked looking at my own blood pressure. It should not be that high, 131/70, I guess workplace does stress me a lot, maybe I should not care too much.

Initially I was thinking my previous donation was 6 months ago, but it happens that it was back dated to July 2008. OMG, more than 1 year ago already, and I am still thinking it was just a few months back.

Is this the sign of getting old? Anyway, I hope the blood really can help those who needs it. Amitabha.

Oops, I did it again!

Thanks to a replacement holiday for Deepavali, I did something once again, which is climbing the Tokun Hill. It was not as easy as I thought, as I was thinking to give up half way because the muscles has not been in a good condition since the climb yesterday.

I was thinking how did I manage to climb Penang Hill last time? I did not train, but I still can finish with something. That's something special. hahahahaha!!!!

Unfortunately, I did it again! I had a feast again after the climb. Had a light dinner at home, but cann0t resist the temptation of peanut pancake, rojak, char koay kak.... haih... seems like I have to control.

Abang dah gemuk!

Woosh... my weight keep increasing after Hari Raya and today just had a Deepavali feast. OMG, I always know that, and aware of my own weight because I weigh every day if I remember.

Today I went all the way to the top of the Tokun Hill, the feeling is great, it is almost 7,8,9 years I have not reach the top of it. I felt my leg muscles was struggling, and I was pushing myself go all the way without stopping and I did it. yea yea...

After that, I went to play football, just a casual one. Wow, my legs seems like cannot stand the work load. Almost cramp...!!! Luckily not.

It was very tiring, but I feel good because I think I burnt a lot of calories, but when I got home, my kepo maid said 'abang sudah gemuk'. It is never good listening to this kind of comment but this is the fact. I hope I can work it out, get myself fit within next two weeks, and I'm gonna challenge Genting trailblazer 2009.

Go, go, go... ChoonShih!!!

Aliens in The Attic


A family movie which bring us back to our childhood, fighting aliens, toy guns, video games, etc.

A group of kids encounter a few aliens from somewhere, and they are trying to conquer the earth. The alien has a remote controller which be able to control any human after the person being shot with some sort of gun, but it just works on adults only.

In order to protect their parents and the earth, they tried to isolate the adults from the house and prepare to have a battle with the aliens. However, things not always good smoothly.

The bad aliens look are ugly, the good alien is cute. I think that will make kids love it more. LOL... There are a few scenes which is very interesting, like the kids fighting using remote controlling on adults. It's funny.

The Crypt

Do you have any thoughts of raiding a tomb? After watching this movie, I guess most people wants to cancel the plan as it is not as good as it seems to be.

The crypt is about a few guys tried to make quick money by exploring and raiding the tombs which believed to have some treasure buried underneath. For chinese, it is always not good to open somebody's tomb, and you will know why after watching this movie. Dead people is not always dead...

A typical 'B' class movie, and the story line and the making is not hitting the standard. A group of ladies and a man raiding a tomb? come on... Frequent black out scenes which is quite disturbing, and let people wondering what happened?

Not a really good one, as I fallen asleep watching it.

Bad Vendor

Vendor is what we call the external salesman or marketing executive, I'm not sure whether that is the correct word. After referring to the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, the meaning is:

vend·or / Ñ 'vendJ(r); NAmE Ñ / noun
1 a person who sells things, for example food or newspapers, usually outside on the street:
street vendors
2 (formal) a company that sells a particular product:
software vendors
3 (law) a person who is selling a house, etc.
—compare seller

I just had a bad experience with one yesterday and today. He asked me to put up a seminar within half a day. I've done it given the short notice and available resources I have. He wants to bring a speaker from Japan, okay, no problem, but he did not even send me what is the title, topics and speaker profile. I guess he is as inexperience as I am. Never mind, I'll try to do whatever I can for him, so I successfully organize one, but will 7 participants only. Is that good enough?

When I was having my lunch today, he called and he wanted something that he loans to company 2 days ago. Another short notice, F***! I'm having lunch, he says he is waiting outside of my company. Can all this arrangement be done earlier?

Headache... and my temper rose, because I hate sweating while not exercising and I have to run up and down to return that thing to him. Banyak soi~!

My Risk Tolerance Score

After reading the whole analysis, I really think that I am a self-conflicting person because my risk tolerance and risk-taking behavior are not the same. More towards the safe side. Sienzzz....

Take a free risk tolerance test from FinaMetrica



Your Risk Tolerance Score

Your Risk Tolerance Score enables you to compare yourself to a representative sample of the adult population. Your score is 70. This is a very high score, higher than 97% of all scores.

When scores are graphed they form a bell-curve as shown below. To make the scores more meaningful, the 0 to 100 scale has been divided into seven Risk Groups. Your score places you in Risk Group 6.

In answer to the last question, you estimated your score would be 70. Congratulations! You picked your score exactly. Most people under-estimate their score by a few points.

Your Risk Group

The description of Risk Group 6 which follows provides a summary of the typical attitudes, values, preferences and experiences of those in your group. Five of your answers differed from this description. They are shown in italics below the relevant section. These differences fine-tune the description to you personally.

Making Financial Decisions

Most commonly they think of "risk" as "opportunity". They have a great deal of confidence, if not complete confidence, in their ability to make good financial decisions and usually feel very, or at least somewhat, optimistic about their major financial decisions after they make them.

They are prepared to take a large degree of risk with their financial decisions and are usually, if not always, more concerned about the possible gains than the possible losses.

You think of "risk" as "danger".

You have only a reasonable amount of confidence in your ability to make good financial decisions.

You are prepared to take a very large degree of risk with your financial decisions.

When faced with a major financial decision you are usually, more concerned about the possible losses.

Financial Disappointments

Typically, when things go wrong financially they adapt somewhat, if not very, easily.

Financial Past

Most have taken a large degree of risk with their past financial decisions. Most have also borrowed money to make an investment. About half have invested a large sum in a risky investment mainly for the "thrill" of seeing whether it went up or down in value.

Investment

They feel it is much more important that the value of their investments retains its purchasing power than that it does not fall. Over ten years, they expect an investment portfolio to earn, on average, at least three times the rate from CDs (certificates of deposit). Typically, they would begin to feel uncomfortable if the total value of their investments went down by 33%.

Given these portfolio choices,

Expected Return and Risk
High Medium Low
Portfolio 1 0 % 0 % 100 %
Portfolio 2 0 % 30 % 70 %
Portfolio 3 10 % 40 % 50 %
Portfolio 4 30 % 40 % 30 %
Portfolio 5 50 % 40 % 10 %
Portfolio 6 70 % 30 % 0 %
Portfolio 7 100 % 0 % 0 %

where stocks and real estate are high return/high risk and cash and CDs are low return/low risk, their most common choice is Portfolio 6.

It is somewhat more important that the value of your investments does not fall (than that it retains its purchasing power.)

Borrowing

If they were borrowing a large sum of money at a time when it was not clear which way interest rates were going to move and when the fixed interest rate was 1% more than the then variable rate, they would choose to have at least 50% of the loan at variable interest.

Government Benefits and Tax Advantages

So long as there was more than a 50% chance they would finish up better off than if they'd done nothing, they would take a risk in arranging their affairs to qualify for a government benefit or obtain a tax advantage.

The Hills Run Red

At first, I think this would be something like Friday the 13th, especially the babyface in the poster looks like Jason. The story begins slowly... a young man trying to seek the truth and prove the existence of one horror movie maker, at least he thought so. He found his daughter, Tyler... and head to the woods to film a documentary show with his friends.

As usual, the bloody scenes is taking turns. I totally not expecting Tyler to be part of bloody story, and it is even more shocking that babyface is her son... and his father is Tyler's father. OMG... I started to wonder the relationship between son/grandson? The scene that a good looking boy cutting his face finally gets the story line, but it is definitely not something good to watch.

Those like to see bloody and human slaughter can give this a shot, but the ending part is not that good. Leaving someone to watch a movie how the producer/director kill people to make that film?

How much money are you putting at risk?

Since I'm working, I'm assessing the risk in my money management and allocation using my terrible 6-sense, but I did that even while I'm still studying. Risk and reward is always a good topic to discuss.

I was involved in football betting since I was in Form 3 or so? I cannot really recall the exact year but I realized that football betting is not always winning. Just like the speculators or traders who try to beat the market in legal trading institution, only 5% wins.

Then by observing the analogy in stock exchange, I got to know that brokers always win, no matter what is the market condition. So I turned up to be a bookie, it works like a broker in stock exchange, just that it is illegal in Malaysia, or worldwide? I don't know. When the greed swallows you, you take more bets, and at the same time, you tends to lose more, because people 'zhao lo' when they lost over their limit. I realize that you are putting all your money at risk by being a bookie, not only that, even your own reputation if you got arrested. Never try this.

Bookie is always some history that I try to shrug off until today, it is not proud history in mu own life. I lost something dear for it, and you will know it just after a period of time later. It haunts you...

Then I move to legal investment, like unit trust, stocks, bonds and so on... made some money, but my terrible 6 sense always fooling me around, maybe it is not the 6 sense but the greed inside me. Haih... maybe human is too emotional. When you see more, you want more. When you are scare, you want less or even want to dump all in panic. It is never wise to do that.

How much money are you putting at risk is a good article, please read it here and all the associated articles, I guess you will be benefited by knowing your own risk behavior.

Quotes from Warren Buffett:
  • It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.
  • Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.
  • You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong.

Water Lily

I was amazed when I took this shot, because she is so beautiful. Even she is shy, but she looks absolutely amazing. Initially, I decided to take a few photos at my home compound, just to pass some time, but I found that if something is done with your heart, the outcome will be something special.

I like this photo very much. It is so pure. It is so beautiful and it is so true.

Just another Saturday

I was cleaning my camera and I decided to take a few photos of Brandi. I think he is still camera-shy, like me :p ! Anyway, I think he is quite tired after running around this morning.

I have taken a few shots of him, and I think this one is the best that I could possibly get, he was so calm and resting on the floor. I guess the heat is making him quite uncomfy too, not to say me who have less hair than him.

He would probably miss my brother too since he has been leaving for a week already, hope that he won't feel alone at home, since I'm gonna play with him too. I love you, brandi.

Still got a few shots on flowers at my house compound, but I gotta go already. Going to have some fun with ManQing. Maybe next post.

发现自己不是很成熟,因为我很多时候说话婆婆妈妈,往往想避免的冲突,到最后只是换个形式发而已,真的好好地学习说话的技巧。还有我常常在意太多为什么,可能是工作所带来的理性后遗症吧,慢慢才明白一件事情的发生可以没有任何理由,也可以有好几个原因,我不该想太多!我还在学习别太保护自己,可能觉得自己太容易受伤了,所以往往先发制于人。Traumatic response!

重视事件的结果,而不把过程看得很重很难,因为人生活最重要的是包括过程,不是结果而已。

最后一条是看每个人对它的定义而异,只能说自己好好保重!

又上班了


刚从 Gem Island 回来,和女友在那私人岛过了开斋节,享受到温暖的阳光,美丽的沙滩,还后很多很美丽的珊瑚,只可惜没有很多浮潜的机会。

回来后,发现自己的体重又上升了,每天吃好料,刚巧遇上开斋节,吃了 rendang, ketupat,沙爹,BBQ大餐等。Genting Trailblazer 就只剩下一个月罢了,是时候好好锻炼了。皮肤也变黑了,但是我喜欢这个 tone,喜欢阳光,沙滩和比基尼就是得牺牲的啦……哈!

还在解决一些工作上的难题,希望可以更加好地管理时间,好让各方面都可以平衡发展。加油!

Dear,it was a nice trip!Next time must take flight already :p

Indonesian DL is coming

I was sitting in the car on my way back from the vendor site audit. A question was asked about the company volume and head count to support the manufacturing operation. 3 managers there and 1 engineer, so it would be a great idea to just listen and don't talk. I heard that many Indonesian operators will be hired, separated into 3 groups. The earliest to hit the factory production floor would be in December 2009.

Indonesian operators, maids, or whatever related to Indonesia work force was/is a hot topic between Malaysia and Indonesia now. A story was told by a QA manager that once an auditor caught an Indonesian DL (direct labour) with make up in the cleanroom, and to escape herself from any disiplinary action, she offered herself to the auditor. The manager is not sure that whether the immoral trade between them got through or not, but it tells me that is just a small fraction of the whole picture.

They come here as a foreigner, they earn around RM600 for 15 shift working days per month. They have to repay the agent fees that help them to get into Malaysia, RM200 gone! They have to send some money home to support their family, potentially RM200 gone. The balance is RM200 or slightly more, what can they do with that amount of money? Can they make a living with that?

They might need to do something against their will or they have to do something else to survive. I heard that they can easily earn RM100 by providing 'service' in karaoke, not sexual service though, but I guess that is not something that you and I will be proud of. I am sad to hear this and I pity them. I hope they will get better, and as a Malaysia, I hope we don't try to take any advantage on them. Treatly them with respect, and hopefully this thing will get better.

'Prawn Aliens @D9' & 'disGRACE'



Ohh... first, I though here comes another alien movie, expecting something new. In fact, there is something new or freash, I did not see aliens, but a lot of prawns out there. OMG... since when that aliens become the victim of human being on the earth? I never saw not so good looking alien so tame... cannot imagine.

The whole point of the movie is hovering around the human who is transforming to the 'prawn' after some 'fuel' spilled on his face. It is more like a documentary show of the 'human alien', rather than talking about the aliens. I like the spacecraft, the weapon, the machine and the ending only. The others are quite disappointing.

Maybe I was expecting an fiction plus action movie, but I felt like watching an documentary show. Sigh... but it is good that some people still can sense the humanity in aliens. Nowadays, not many humans behave like humans anymore.





This is another movie that I scanned through, because I was too sleepy with the slow story line. I was so eager to see the 'blood' scene, but it was not really a lot about that one until near the end of the story.

I cannot imagine that what is the unconditional love from a mother that feeding her baby with blood, just because the baby needs it. How long does a mother take to realize that a baby is sucking milk or blood from her nipples? Sucking and biting make a difference, so I guess it comes back the undying love from a mother.

The ending is very disgusting! A mother covering with blood and a teething baby. arhh...

I do not recommend this movie to ladies because you might have phobia carrying a baby in the future.

人與人相處的差異

人與人相處的差異 ...... (很棒的文章 !!)


許多人認為婚姻中有問題是因為彼此的差異太大,
但是我卻發現,我們不可能找到一個與我們沒有很大差異的人。

就拿我們家的兩個兒子來 說,他們有完全相同的原生家庭和成長背景,
甚至類似的基因組合,個性卻是南轅北轍。

哥哥細心、謹慎、 內向、凡事深思熟慮,
弟弟開朗、活潑、大方,卻常丟三忘四,
所以要找到與我們沒有很大差異的人,幾乎是不可能的。

有趣的是,在談戀愛時,我們往往會被與我們性格相反的人所吸引,
這可能和「同極相斥異極相吸」的物理定律有關。

例如:

活潑外向的會喜歡冷靜思考的人,
動作敏捷的會欣賞慢條斯理型的,
還有最讓我不解的,是精打細算的人,最後往往會配上花錢大方的人。

這似乎是上帝的美意,讓我們在婚姻中能彼此互補,
透過夫妻間的差異,使我們成為更豐富、更寬廣的人。

---------------------------------------------------------------

差異是平衡

有位年輕媽媽抱怨 說:
「我先生常破壞我辛苦幫孩子建立的生活規範,
諸如:我把孩子一天的生活作息都安排好,幾點該做什麼事。

晚上九點應 該是上床時間,可是先生因為加班,有時九點多才回家,
那時孩子已經上床,但是還沒睡著,
先生就會高興地大聲 說:『我們去吃宵夜 吧!』
孩子們便大叫:『耶!』興奮地從床上跳起來,跟著爸爸出去了。

結果因為太 晚睡,第二天早上起不來,上學差點遲到。」

很明顯的,這位太太是做事中規中矩很有計劃的人,
一切都要按照時間表進行才覺得安心。

而她先生很可能是比較放鬆、隨性、享受生活的人。

我對這位姊妹 說:
「你們夫妻真是天作之合,我相信有一天你們的孩子長大之後,
他們回顧童年,最快樂的回憶可能不是 每天按照媽媽所規劃的時間表作息,
而是在心不甘情不願地上床後,忽然爸爸回家宣佈:
『我們去吃宵夜吧!』這樣意外的驚喜。

妳的孩子 絕對需要像妳這樣的母親幫助他們過有規律的生活,
但他們也非常需要偶爾不按牌理出牌的爸爸在嚴謹的生活中,
帶來一些調劑與樂趣,
你們夫妻在性格上的差異能讓彼此有更平衡的家庭生活。」

-----------------------------------------------------------------
差異是祝福

有智慧的人會把配偶與我們不同的地方看為特點而非缺點,
它是上帝給予的祝福,來彌補我們的不足。即或對方真的有品格上的缺失,
也能成為上帝手中的工具,來幫助我們成長。

當我讀聖經「哥林多前書十三章」保羅對於愛的描述時,我想到若
配偶完全符合我們的心意,那愛就實在無法彰顯。

若他沒有任何讓我不愉快的地方,我又怎須恆久忍耐?

若他沒有得罪我的地方,我又何需以恩慈對待?

若他沒有任何惡行,我就不須做到「不計人的惡」;

若我的配偶很完美,可能我還無知地覺得自己是很懂得愛的人。

上帝的美意就是要我們在和一個與我們有極大差異的人相處時,
去學習接納、欣賞,和感激雙方的差異;
而在看到他有軟弱或缺點時,能學習捨己、饒恕、忍耐、恩慈和寬容。

婚姻中若有任何衝突或不愉快,原因不是差異太大,
而是因為我們的 自我中心 ,要求別人順著我們的意思。

︿︿衝突提醒我,是我需要改變與成長;

我們不是要去換一個沒有差異或處處順著我的人,
而是學習欣賞差異,改變自己成為更成熟、更懂得付出愛的人。 ︿︿

-----------------------------------------------------------------

接納差異是真愛

我常會弄丟東西,而先生卻很會找東西。

有一次,我找不到家的鑰匙,而丈夫正好出差到國外,
更離譜的是我竟然斷定它是被住家附近的工人 偷走了,
所以打了長途電話給丈夫,
他還一再地要我確定是否真的沒有掉在家的某個角落。

我很肯定地 說:「 絕對是放在腳踏車的籃子被偷走的!」
經過討論之後,只好決定更換所有大門的把鎖,
為了安全起見,我們還換了當時最貴的一種,花了將近四千塊錢。

丈夫出差回來後,不死心地在家尋找那串鑰匙, 他伸手進入我那有好幾個口袋的皮包中,左摸右掏,
接著我吃驚地聽到一串鑰匙的叮 噹聲,那遺失的鑰匙竟然一直都在我的皮包!

我實在羞愧地無言以對,立刻低下頭想:「你罵我吧!你要怎麼數落我,我都配得。」

但他竟笑嘻嘻地 說:
「這件事一定有神的美意,我們住在這裡幾十年,舊的鎖早該換了,換的好!」

他沒有因我們的差異 ∼∼他精明、我糊塗,而責備或嘲笑我。
那一天從他身上,我看到什麼是愛。

很棒吧 ~ ^^
我覺得不管是不是夫妻情人甚至家人 朋友;
應該 說的是 人與人之間的相處都要有一種 " 雅量 "

白撞的狗狗

昨天在我开车到慧民家途中,刚越过了一辆车,一只很匆忙的狗狗就在我车前冲过去,还好我来得及踩煞车,要不然就狗魂不散了。我心想它到底在干什么的?小心点嘛!

刚才,半夜下过雨,路上满滑的。(我只是猜的,毕竟我花了不少钱在四粒米奇林的 performance 轮胎上)在差不多同样的时间,地点,那只狗狗又在我车前冲过马路。

心里在想,是上天要给我什么提示吗?

驾车要小心?过马路要小心?

Lesson to Learn

每個都有一些 ~~


試著去欣賞它 ...... 世界會變得很美好~
每個人都有一些缺點~~~
試著去改變它 .... 世界會變得很美好 ~~
逃避它~~~ 這個世界還是不會因你而改變的 ~~~
我看後有所驚醒,因我也忘記箇中道理了。

1.
誤會; 2.釘子; 3.且慢下手; 4.寬大


1.誤會 :

早年在美國阿拉斯加地方,有一對年輕人結婚,婚後生育,


他的太太因難
產而死,遺下一孩子。

他忙生活,又忙於看家,因沒有人幫忙看孩子,就訓練一隻狗,


那狗聰明聽話,能照顧小孩,咬著奶瓶餵奶給孩子喝,撫養孩子。


有一天,主人出門去了,叫牠照顧孩子。


他到了別的
鄉村,因遇大雪,當日不能回來。

第二天才趕回家,狗立即聞聲出來迎接主人。他把房門開一看,
到處是血,


抬頭一望,床上也是血,孩子不見了,狗在身邊,滿口也是血,


主人發現這種情形,以為狗性發作,把孩子吃掉了,


大怒之下,拿起刀來向著狗頭一劈,把狗殺死了。


之後,忽然聽到孩子的聲音,又見他從床下爬了出來,


於是抱起孩子;雖然身上有血,但並未受傷。


他很奇怪,不知究竟是怎麼一回事,再看看狗身,


腿上的肉沒有了,旁邊有一隻狼,口裡還咬著狗的肉;


狗救了小主人,卻被主人誤殺了,這真是天下最令人驚奇的誤會。


註:誤會的事,是人往往在不瞭解、無理智、無耐心、缺少思考、


未能多方體諒對方,反省自己,感情極為衝動的情況之下所發生。


誤會一開始,即一直只想到對方的千錯萬錯;因此,
會使誤會越陷越深,


弄到不可收拾的地
步,人對無知的動物小狗發生誤會,

尚且會有如此可怕嚴重的後果,
這樣人與人之間的誤會,則其後果更是難以想像。


2.
釘子 :

有一個男孩有著很壞的脾氣,於是他的父親就給了他一袋釘子;


並且告訴他,
每當他發脾氣的時候就釘一根釘子在後院的圍籬上。

第一天,這個男孩釘下了
37 根釘子。慢慢地每天釘下的數量減少了。

他發現控制自己的脾氣要比釘下那些釘子來得容易些。


終於有一天這個男孩再也不會失去耐性亂發脾氣,
他告訴他的父親這件事,


父親告訴他,現在開始
每當他能控制自己的脾氣的時候,就拔出一根釘子。

一天天地過去了,最後男孩告訴他的父親,
他終於把所有釘子都拔出來了。


父親握著他的手來到後院
說:你做得很好,我的好孩子。

但是看看那些圍籬上的洞,這些圍籬將永遠不能回復成從前。


你生氣的時候
說的話將像這些釘子一樣留下疤痕。

如果你拿刀子
捅別人一刀,不管你說了多少次對不起,那個傷口將永遠存在。

話語的傷痛就像真實的傷痛一樣令人無法承受。


註:
人與人之間常常因為一些彼此無法釋懷的堅持,而造成永遠的傷害。

如果我們都能從自己做起,開始寬容地看待他人,


相信你(妳)一定能收到許多意想不到的結果
..... 幫別人開啟一扇窗,
也就是讓自己看到更完整的天空
....


3.
且慢下手

大多數的同仁都很興奮,因為單位裡調來一位新主管,據
說是個能人,專門被派來

整頓業務;可是日一天天過去,新主管卻毫無作為,
每天彬彬有禮進辦公室,

便
躲在裡面難得出門,那些本來緊張得要死的壞份子,現在反而更猖獗了。

「他那裡是個能人嘛!根本是個老好人,比以前的主管更容易
唬!」

四個月過去,就在真正努力為新主管感到失望時,


新主管卻發威了--壞份子一律開革,能人則獲得晉昇。


下手之快,斷事之準,與四月表現保守的他,簡直像是全然換個人。


年終聚餐時,新主管在酒過三巡之後致詞:


「相信大家對我新到任期間的表現,和後來的大刀闊斧,
一定感到不解,


現在聽我
說個故事,各位就明白了:「我有位朋友,買了棟帶著大院的房子,

他一搬進去,就將那院子全面整頓,雜草樹一律清除,
改種自己新買的花卉,


某日原先的屋主往訪,進門大吃一驚的問:『
那最名貴的牡丹哪裡去了?』


我這位朋友才發現,他竟然把牡丹當草給剷了。


後來他又買了一棟房子,雖然院子更是雜亂,他卻是按兵不動,


果然冬天以為是雜樹的植物,春天裡開了繁花;


春天以為是野草的,夏天裡成了錦蔟;半年都沒有動靜的小樹,
秋天居然紅了葉。


直到暮秋,它才真正認清哪些是無用的植物,


而大力剷除,並使所有珍貴的草木得以保存。」
說到這兒,主管舉起杯來:

「讓我敬在座的
每一位,因為如果這辦公室是個花園,你們就都是其間的珍木,

珍木不可能一年到頭開花結果,只有經過長期的觀察才認得出啊!


4.
寬大 :

這是一個甫自越戰歸來的士兵的故事。


他從舊金山打電話給他的父母,告訴他們:「爸媽,我回來了,
可是我有個不情之請。

我想帶一個朋友同我一起回家。」「當然好啊!」他們回答「
我們會很高興見到的。」

不過兒子又繼續下去「可是有件事我想先告訴你們,
他在越戰裡受了重傷,


少了一條胳臂和一隻
腳,他現在走投無路,我想請他回來和我們一起生活。」

「兒子,我很遺撼,不過或許我們可以幫他找個安身之處。」


父親又接著
說「兒子,你不知道自己在說些什麼。

像他這樣殘障的人會對我們的生活造成很大的負擔。


我們還有自己的生活要過,不能就讓他這樣破壞了。


我建議你先回家然後忘了他,他會找到自己的一片天空的。」


就在此時卻
l掛上了電話,他的父母再也沒有他的消息了。

幾天後,這對父母接到了來自舊金山警局的電話,


告訴他們親愛的兒子已經墜樓身亡了。
警方相信這只是單純的自殺案件。


於是他們傷心欲
絕地飛往舊金山,並在警方帶領之下到停屍間去辨認兒子的遺體。

那的確是他們的兒子沒錯,但驚訝的是兒子居然,
只有一條胳臂和一條腿。



故事中的父母就和我們大多數人一樣。

要去喜愛面貌姣好或談吐風趣的人很容易,

但是要喜歡那些造成我們不便和不快的人卻太難了。

我們總是寧願和那些不如我們健康,美麗或聰明的人保持距離。

然而有些人卻不會對我們如此殘酷。

他們會無怨無悔地愛我們,不論我們多麼糟總是願意接納我們。

今晚在你入睡之前,請試著去接納他人,

不論他們是怎麼樣的人;請用心去了解那些不同於我們的人。

每個人的心裡都藏著一種神奇的東西稱為「友情」,


你不知道它究竟是如何發生何時發生,
但你卻知道它總會帶給我們特殊的禮物。


朋友就像是稀奇的寶物。他們帶來歡笑,激勵我們成功。


他們傾聽我們
內心的話,與我們分享每一句讚美。

他們的心房永遠為我們而敞開。
現在就告訴你的朋友你有多在乎他們。



把這篇文章轉寄給所有你認為是朋友的人。


如果這篇文章又回來了,你將知道你擁有了一輩子的朋友。


試想:朋友,您一路看下來之後;一定有很深的感觸吧。


那麼,在對別人有所決定與判斷之前,首先,請想想這是否是一個「
誤會」,

然後,請考慮您是否一定要釘下這個「
釘子」,

如果可以的話,請「
且慢下手 」。

因為,當您對別人「
寬大」之時,即是對您自己寬大。

^^
