But somehow it ended up with this.

When I'm On a BF

BF - Bitch Fit身边突然多了很多应该消失的人。因为他们的不自觉,所以充斥了这个空间的累赘。谁也不能怪谁。活受罪。

[转] 真正的富有

人間事繁多,總感覺來不及、時間不夠用;我們可曾用心計量自己的生命時間?在日常生活中,一般人一天睡眠八小時,換算起來一生有三分之一的時間都在睡眠中度過;加上每日用三餐,以及休閒、旅遊等,共要耗費多少時日?現代社會大多一周上班五天,一天八小時,其中又有多少時間是真正投入工作?

此外,嬰兒時期、就學時期,還有僅在消費中的時間,這都是社會的供應、父母的養育。算一算人的一生,有多少時間是回饋人群?我們要懂得把握時間,用心為人群付出,才是真正的富有人生。

有則發生在美國的故事──一對母女生活窮困,有次小女孩陪伴母親到醫院看病,無意間撿到一個皮夾,內有十萬元美金及其他證件。

母親說:「遺失皮夾的人一定很著急,妳站在原地,等待失主來找。」小女孩在原地等了數小時,終於有位先生神色慌張地前來尋找。她仔細詢問,確定是失主後,很有禮貌地將皮夾還給他。

這位失主原是一位企業家,他很感謝小女孩,知道她的母親生病,看了醫師卻因家貧無法買藥,當下決定要妥善照顧這對母女。

他盡心地尋醫並且負擔醫藥費,雖然母親終究還是往生,企業家卻收養了小女孩,栽培她到大學畢業,還安排進入自己公司學習各種業務。女孩也用心盡力地幫助企業家,以寬闊的心胸與信用,將公司經營得很好。

多年後,這位企業家年邁病危時,立下遺書,寫出在多年前,當他遺失皮夾時,著急的不是錢,而是證件與商業機密。當他看到小女孩站在原地等待數小時,並且了解這對母女家境的窮困,令他感到震撼。

之前,雖然他賺了很多錢,卻必須在商場上明爭暗鬥、忙碌不堪,天天充滿煩惱,很不快樂;直到他遇到這對貧窮的母女時,忽然省悟:這對母女沒有貪念,做到為人該有的品格,才是真富有。

從那時起,企業家用心教養女孩,並且改善企業經營的方向。經過一、二十年的觀察,他認為女孩可以成為真正立下典範的商人,於是決定將所有財產及企業都交由女孩繼承;還說:「相信在國外深造的兒子,能了解我的意思。」

他往生之後,兒子回來看到父親的遺書,對這位女孩甚為感佩,二話不說就簽字同意,同時也提出一項請求,希望能和她結為連理;最後女孩接受了前輩的贈與,同時也接受他兒子的求婚。

透過這則輕鬆的故事,能讓我們理解一位企業家的心靈哲學。賺錢所為何來?有財富也應該有滿足的感受;所以時時要知足、感恩、善解、包容;若是心存貪婪,即使賺再多錢都會感到不滿足,日子也會不好過。

真正的富有有兩種:一種是富中之富──富有有形的金錢,更富有無形無…

他的生日

今天,是他的生日。回头看看过去高中发生的点点滴滴,真是一出出赏心悦目的闹剧。不知道他还有没有保留那些情景,像我一样时不时细细地咀嚼回味。倒是忘了,也许他很开心他终于摆脱了恶梦。生日快乐 :)

Otak-Otak

I can still remember how much I love Otak-Otak when I was still in primary school after moving to Batu Pahat. There were only 2 choices that I will have to pick from for my breakfast usually; hot-dog-bread or otak-otak-bread.No more otak-otak though after leaving the state, till then when my friend brought me, from Johor, this memorable food again into my eyes.There are 2 available flavors to choose from; pure fish, and a mixture of fish and prawn. The Otak-Otak doesn't come in wrapped with banana leaves. This allow creativity in cooking the food other than the traditional way i.e. steaming. Cons and pros so sorry to those Otak-Otak-with-banana-leaves-lovers.Anyhow, I started off by steaming half of each flavor :P There you see the prawn and fish which are still in a nice shape. The OS that came along with every bite is, "Awh! Why so fresh!"

Another Day, Another Ice Cream

Spend your weekend differently!It's Nestle! Almond Pecan Praline, with almond in every single bite! You'd love this if you like almond as much as I do.

To Rest, Is To Go Further.

At last, I decided to take a one day leave today.It feels terrible to miss a nice sleep, continuously. So even if I cant sleep at night, I guess sleeping in daytime is as easy as while in office could help at least a bit.I knew it was going to be my night when the rain falls in the afternoon yesterday. And yeah I had an "above average" sleep last night.I guess I don't mind anymore carrying an umbrella walking home everyday.

无题

话说昨天为了能够让自己有一场好觉,睡前洗了一个热水澡,外加一杯牛奶。结果睡觉的时候是觉得透体通畅没错,但是还是反反复复地辗转在梦醒之间。那就应该是心理障碍吧。可惜他们不会惭愧。

拯救睡眠大作战

一觉到天亮的感觉好得不得了,但我却有点开始忘记了那种满足的感觉;欲哭无泪。一般上我会说我是个敏感的人。睡觉的时候身边一点点的动静都可以让我第一时间内醒过来。原来专业术语称这叫神经衰弱。经过四处的明察暗访,我小小地收集了一些有利于提高睡眠品质的坊间心得。其一是睡前一杯牛奶,其二是睡前热水澡。这系列的拯救睡眠大作战打头炮的就是这两点。至于成效有没有到称心如意的地步,就在今晚之后的同一时间给你献上!我们明晚再会。- - -事后:煲水去。

魔音传脑

爱看电影的人,你们应该也有这样的经验。是不是有哪些电影里面的某句对白或词句时不时会在生活某个点滴刹那从脑海里传了出来?例如铁达尼号的“You jump,I jump”;又如未来战士3的“Talk to my hand”;等等等等。我自己其实对这些词句都不会留下什么深刻的印象,更不至于突然会想起来。唯独有那么一句;却也不是什么了不起的对白,也绝对不是导演刻意要让观众记得的台词;却真的时不时会在我脑海里念了又念,念了又念。“Mr Anderson!”外!?就这句?对,你没看错,就这句。至于是哪部电影,就请你猜一猜咯。

Did You ICQ?

While I was looking around at download.com, I saw that ICQ was the 6th most downloaded software, with a total downloads of 322,701.Within a second or two, I recalled how tightly ICQ has fitted into my life ever since I started using Internet in high school.Few years later however, people go towards MSN and Yahoo Messenger... No more "Oh Oh" sound in the air. But the ICQ flower will always be there in my heart.

Rubik's Cube

Finally, I can solve a Rubik's Cube by myself without referring to any material. Thanks to the book I bought last week from the Book Festival. :)There are things which you might not be able to do since you have memory - Challenge them! Prove that you are still alive.
