The weather is really hot and the haze seems to be worsening from the numerous bush fires. I suspect some of these fires have been started by unscrupulous people as this is an easy way to clear the land for whatever purposes these people are intending to use the land for. When I sent my son Les to Curtin University this morning, I could see how bad the haze was as visibility had been badly curtailed. A heavy downpour would be most welcomed by everyone.

I am still feeling unwell. My throat is a bit parched and I have a lingering urge to clear my throat. I took a nap this afternoon but when I woke up, I was seized with a splitting headache. I had no choice but to take a Panadol. Fortunately the headache subsided after that.

I like to save emails with great stories. The following story is from an email sent to me quite a long while back by Laila, an ex-colleague of mine in Brunei. It is an inspiring story and I hope it will stir up in you a decision to embark on a journey to live the rest of your life without any more regrets. Enjoy….and be touched!

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME IS……….

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.

I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being.

She said, ” Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?”

I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant squeeze.

“Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked.

She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids.”

“No seriously, ” I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.

“I always dreamed of having a college education and now I”m getting one!” she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.

We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this “time machine” as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.

Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living up to it.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I’ll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced  and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor.

Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, “I’m so sorry I’m so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me. I’ll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.”

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, ” We do not stop playing because we ae old; we grow old because we stop playing. “

“There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You’ve got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.”

“We have so many people walking around who are dead and don’t even know it!”

“There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up.”

“If you nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.”

“Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets.”

“The elderly usually don’t have regrets for what we did, but rather for things that we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.”

She concluded her speech by courageously singing “The Rose.”

She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year’s end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago.

One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.

Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it’s never too late to be all you can possibly be.

Remember, growing older is mandatory. Growing up is optional. We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Good friends are like stars….you don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.

Lyrics of “The Rose”

Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
and you its only seed.

It’s the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dyin’
that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been to long,
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed that with the sun’s love
in the spring becomes the rose

I have not been feeling well since yesterday. Right now I feel feverish and there is the initial sign of an impending sore throat. I have taken some fever pills and antibiotic but the fever seems to be persistent. I have been resting almost all day and I just pray that I  will recover soon. I received an email from my eldest brother this morning with a very touching article “The Smell of Rain”. There were a lot of photos and images in the article but somehow, they cannot be copied.  I am thus left with no choice but to copy only the text of the article. And here it is……..The Smell of Rain.

A cold March wind danced around the dead of night in Dallas as the doctor walked into the small hospital room of Diana Blessing. She was still groggy from surgery.Her husband, David, held her hand as they braced themselves for the latest news.

That afternoon of March 10, 1991, complications had forced Diana, only 24-weeks pregnant, to undergo an emergency Cesarean to deliver couple’s new daughter, Dana Lu Blessing. At 12 inches long and weighing only one pound nine ounces, they already knew she was perilously premature. Still, the doctor’s soft words dropped like bombs.

“I don’t think she’s going to make it,” he said, as kindly as he could. “There’s only a 10-percent chance she will live through the night, and even then, if by some slim chance she does make it, her future could be a very cruel one”

Numb with disbelief, David and Diana listened as the doctor described the devastating problems Dana would likely face if she survived. She would never walk, she would never talk, she would probably be blind, and she would certainly be prone to other catastrophic conditions from cerebral palsy to complete mental retardation, and on and on.

“No! No!” was all Diana could say. She and David, with their 5-year-old son Dustin, had long dreamed of the day they would have a daughter to become a family of four. Now, within a matter of hours, that dream was slipping away.

But as those first days passed, a new agony set in for David and Diana. Because Dana’s underdeveloped nervous system was essentially ‘raw’, the lightest kiss or caress only intensified her discomfort, so they couldn’t even cradle their tiny baby girl against their chests to offer the strength of their love.

All they could do, as Dana struggled alone beneath the ultraviolet light in the tangle of tubes and wires, was to pray that God would stay close to their precious little girl. There was never a moment when Dana suddenly grew stronger.

But as the weeks went by, she did slowly gain an ounce of weight here and an ounce of strength there.

At last, when Dana turned two months old. her parents were able to hold her in their arms for the very first time. And two months later, though doctors continued to gently but grimly warn that her chances of surviving, much less living any kind of normal life, were next to zero, Dana went home from the hospital, just as her mother had predicted.

Five years later, when Dana was a petite but feisty young girl with glittering gray eyes and an unquenchable zest for life.

She showed no signs whatsoever of any mental or physical impairment. Simply, she was everything a little girl can be and more. But that happy ending is far from the end of her story.

One blistering afternoon in the summer of 1996 near her home in Irving, Texas, Dana was sitting in her mother’s lap in the bleachers of a local ball park where her brother Dustin’s baseball team was practicing.

As always, Dana was chattering nonstop with her mother and several other adults sitting nearby when she suddenly fell silent. Hugging her arms across her chest, little Dana asked, “Doyou smell that?”

Smelling the air and detecting the approach of a thunderstorm, Diana replied, “Yes, it smells like rain.”

Dana closed her eyes and again asked, “Do you smell that?”

Once again, her mother replied, “Yes, I think we’re about to get wet. It smells like rain.”

Still caught in the moment, Dana shook her head, patted her thin shoulders with her small hands and loudly announced, “No, it smells like Him. It smells like God when you lay your head on His chest.”

Tears blurred Diana’s eyes as Dana happily hopped down to play with the other children.

Before the rains came, her daughter’s words confirmed what Diana and all the members of the extended Blessing family had known, at least in their hearts, all along.

During those long days and nights of her first two months of her life, when her nerves were too sensitive for them to touch her, God was holding Dana on His chest and it is His loving scent that she remembers so well.

You now have 1 of 2 choices. You can either pass this on and let other people catch the chills like you did or you can act like it didn’t touch your heart like it did mine.

IT’S YOUR CALL!

“I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.”

This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven, He saw me, and He asked:”My child, what is your greatest wish for today?” I responded: “Lord please, take care of the person who is reading this message, their family and their special friends. They deserve it and I love them very much”.  The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginning, but not its end.

ANGELS EXIST but some times, since they don’t all have wings, we call them FRIENDS.

I’ve just signed up for the Video Lounge access at Mega Red Packet and before I forget, I am writing in to tell you this.

Vince Tan, Edmund Loh and Stephen Luc are teaming up to release the Mega Red Packet on 4th May 2009. In case you’ve not heard of these dynamic trio here’s a quick background on them…

Vince Tan and Edmund Loh were two of the key speakers at the Global Internet Summit that I attended recently in Penang. And they are awesome!

Vince Tan is a World Internet Summit speaker and the same man who pulled off the Biggest Firesale event in Year 2008 which broke the 6 figure record in just 3 days and then brought in $170,000 in only 10 days.

If you use Private Label Rights products often for your Internet Business then I suppose Edmund Loh doesn’t need an introduction; he’s the person behind more than 260 Private Label Rights titles under the PLRGold brand. Just late last year, he teamed up with expert video maker Stephen Luc to pull off a product launch called PLRGold: Videos and raked in $100,000 in 10 days too. Collectively, the dynamic trio has made more than a million dollars in sales.

So what is Mega Red Packet all about? (since it’s 3 months after the Chinese New Year)

When I first visited the Mega Red Packet website, it branded itself as a “Recession Show Stopper”. I didn’t think much of it initially since a lot of Internet Marketing opportunist won’t let go any chance to cash in on the latest trend. But I take back what I said when I saw the Video Lounge area.

Vince, Edmund and Stephen have produced and positioned Mega Red Packet to turn the tide for many people who are not only struggling in their pursuit of building an online business but also people who are affected by the current recession period.

Mega Red Packet is focused on this core of success: product + traffic = residual income. This is the closest definition to push button marketing where all the work has been done for Internet Marketers of all levels – whether you are new or seasoned. The Mega Red Packet team has invested nearly $100,000 and 6 months in conceiving this push button program and infrastructure, which gives the user a variety of products to get reseller and Franchise rights to new, original products and sell.

Mega Red Packet is NOT about potential. It’s about empowering the Internet newbie to have his string of proven businesses in the form of Reseller Memberships for you to take full control of, and Franchise rights to proven Internet Businesses so that they can be put into the shoes of these 3 top Internet Marketers. The new Internet Marketer can now leverage off the credibility and proven model that the dynamic trio have discovered over the collective 11 years of marketing experience.

Traffic generation is another topic of great interest to some, and a great struggle to many others. The Mega Red Packet collection solves this more efficient and effectively than anyone, myself included, can ask for.

Vince, Edmund and Stephen are also taking this chance to launch their newest home study course named “Traffic Leopard” – aptly called ‘the next generation of traffic building’ that features a series of proven tactics to drive in traffic to your website, accompanied by a rich archive of case studies as used and experimented relentlessly by all of the 3 top Internet Marketers.

There’s also the Traffic Networks where Vince and Edmund have negiotiated with some of the top traffic building site owners to give generous credits to members of Mega Red Packet.

All in all, there’s more goodies in store in Mega Red Packet that I believe every Internet Marketer must look forward to. It’s ground breaking and non-conventional, not something you know so well of. Literally, all the work is done and I haven’t even talked about the new Private Label Rights products and software they are releasing in the Mega Red Packet event, that lets you do instant One Time Offers, Upsells and even Cross-Sells.

You can take my review with a pinch of salt but I strongly urge you to check out the site now and sign up for the free access to the Video Lounge (worth $297) and get onto their Advanced Notification List. (by the way speaking of that, they are also going to pick randomly 3 different names from the list to give free copies of Mega Red Packet on their launch day – you could be one of them!)

Another lazy Sunday is here. The weather is really hot and this is aggravated by the haze.  I can feel a little headache coming but I always try not to take Panadol unless it is really necessary.

My wife, my son Les and I went to Emart to do some shopping. Emart is a roaring success in Miri with big crowds especially during weekends.  It caters mainly to the huge residential estates in Permajaya, Tudan, Senadin and Pujut as well as to people from Brunei. Due to the resounding success of Emart in Miri, the owner is venturing into Kuching with the Kuching Emart slated to open soon.

Within the Emart complex, there are lots of stores selling all sorts of things ranging from magazines, handphones, VCDs, DVDs, gold and silver jewelry, clothes, shoes, bags, etc. This is a no-frills shopping centre caring to the budget-conscious consumers. But the rental here is not cheap…..to operate a small store in the complex one has to fork out RM2,000 to $3,500 per month for rental.  With the high traffic flow, I guess the rental is maybe justified. And the centre boasts of the biggest electric fan in Borneo.

While my wife and Les were shopping inside Emart, I spent my time at the tamu-style stores next to the carpark there. This is always an interesting place to browse around as you never know what you may find here. A few weeks ago, I saw sago worms being sold by a native but unfortunately I did not bring my camera that day. It is a sight to behold watching the fat sago worms wriggling inside the plastic containers. A lot of my friends told me that the sago worms are really delicious but these worms are a definite “no no ” for me.  Even if someone offers me a hundred bucks to try the worms, I will not accept the challenge.

Petai or "stink beans"

Petai beans or seeds look like broad beans. Like mature broad beans, they may have to be peeled before cooking. There the resemblance ends. They are not bland. They have a distinctive strong taste, and are said to be best in curries. The beans also have an unusual odour and are sometimes called stink beans. Young tender pods with undeveloped beans can be used whole in stir fried dishes.

The wild durians are rather small, like a grapefruit.  It is said that wild boars love wild durians.  How these boars  get the spiky durians open is a mystery to me.  Perhaps The Discovery Channel or National Geographic should investigate this.

Talking about durians, it is said that the Malays consider durian an aphrodisiac.  “When durians fall down, sarongs go up!” they say.

As we were trying to exit the car park, we were treated to a grand display of the driving manners of Miri drivers. No one would give way to us. Just imagine this…..you are at at some sort of a T-junction and you want to turn right to get out of the car park….to the left of the T-junction, the cars are moving at a crawl…..if the drivers in the cars on the right side of the T-junction can just give way instead of blocking the exit, the cars in the car park can easily get out…..to make matters worse, some cars from the right cut into the oncoming traffic lane thereby blocking that lane too.  It was a very frustrating experience being caught in this situation for several minutes. One wowan was even talking happily away on her handphone while blocking the exit. I worked in Brunei for about ten years and I have this to comment….the average Brunei drivers are much more courteous than Miri drivers….Miri drivers have a lot to learn from Brunei drivers such as driving on the left lane when not overtaking, stopping for pedestrians to cross the road at zebra  crossings,  giving signals when turning, etc.

My wife, my younger son Les, my mother-in-law and I were at the airport this morning to send off my elder son Clarence who was returning to Penang.  It was really nice to have him home for the last five days. Needless to say, we were sad to see him leaving. It will be at least several months before we see him again. He will be sitting for his CPA exams in Penang this coming Friday. Son, we wish you all the best though we know you will do very well. Do take time off from your work to enjoy the things in life.

Life is not a bed of roses. We face challenges everyday. How we respond to our daily challenges will determine the quality of our lives.  If we always try to avoid challenges, we will stop growing.  We should instead welcome challenges as they help to develop our character and strength.

We think our Earth is very big. The truth is the Earth is very small. We think our problems are very big. Think again.

My son Les forwarded an email to me about keeping life in perspective. It is pretty fascinating and enlightening. And I suddenly feel so small.  Life suddenly becomes so insignificant.

The planets in comparison

Earth looks so big here!

The planets

Now how small is Earth compared to Jupiter?

Compared to the sun, the earth has become just a tiny speck.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky and is more than 1000 light years away. Arcturus is so small compared to Antares...and the earth is not even a dot!

Humbling, isn’t it?

Now, how big are you?

How big are the things that upset you today?

And how big are your problems?

Keep your life in perspective. Don’t let the small things in life overwhelm you.

When one considers our world from such a small compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent. The following is also something to ponder…

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation…you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest,torture, or death…you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep…you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married … you are very rare, even in the US and Canada.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Someone once said:

What goes around comes around. Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching. Sing like nobody’s listening. Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.

The following is a funny perspective of keeping life in perspective….have a good laugh…..don’t be so uptight about the joke….take it as it is, a joke, ok?

At age 4……success is……not peeing in your pants.

At age 12….success is……having friends.

At age 17….success is……having a driver’s licence.

At age 20….success is……having sex.

At age 35….success is……havng money.

At age 50….success is……having money.

At age 60….success is……having sex.

At age 75….success is……having friends.

At age 80….success is……not peeing in your pants.

If you happened to be at the Miri Airport today at about 11am, you would have witnessed the triumphant return of The SMK Chung Hua Brass Band from Spain.  It is a scene that arouses feelings of nationalism and great pride. The uninformed would be excused for thinking that some top brass VIP is in town…hmmm, maybe Prime Minister Najib.

SMK Chung Hua Brass Band achieved the impossible in Spain.  I guess impossible is not in the vocabulary of the band members. They just performed in the best spirit of Malaysia  Boleh. They won the Golden Hercules Award, the best brass band in the 2009 International Murcia Spring Festival held in Murcia in southern Spain on April 19. They also won the the subsidiary award for the Most Popular Band among the 60 brass bands from all over the world taking part in the competition. Miri is one of the smallest ( if not THE smallest ) cities in Malaysia and to be able to produce such a world class band is really astonishing. Congratulations!

The band comprising of 75 musicians is led by band major Chin Ga Li and drum major Terence Ling, together with former band and drum majors Rex Lo and Kho Tad Juin respectively, and their Japanese coach and chief conductor Mitsuo Nonami.

The airport was thronged with students of SMK Chung Hua. The reporters were out in full force. Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan, the Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak, was there.  Tan Sri Datuk Paduka Dr Ting Pek Khiing and his wife Dato Pakuka Chai were beaming with the biggest of smiles, reminding me of Smiley. A  lot of local dignitaries mingled with the crowd.

I have been so tied up today with my other online ventures that I almost forgot about my blog.  It is approaching midnight so I will just do a very short post today. Moreover my son Clarence came back from Penang yesterday evening. He is on a two-week study leave in preparation for his CPA exams.

Human beings tend to look down on the supposedly lowly snails. This series of photos may change your viewpoint and may even garner your respect for the snails.

The snail does not complain about having no legs. It does not ask for special rights, privileges, quota and the like. It tries its best, that is its attitude.

A lot of us humans, endowed with a brain, two hands and two legs, seem to expect handouts in life. We whine, we wail, we complain, we grumble, we protest…..often over very trivial things.

Watch this snail. I hope it stirs up something deep inside you and motivates you to strive to reach your full potential.

Oh oh! How can I cross over to the other side?

Oh oh! How can I cross over to the other side?

When someone tells you that you cannot do something, look around...

When someone tells you that you cannot do something, look around...

Consider all options......

Then go for it!

Then go for it!

Use all your God-given talents....

Be creative....put in massive effort

Hurray! I did it!

Where there is a will there is a way…..this supposedly lowly snail just proves it!

So stop whining…..stop wailing…..stop complaining…….stop grumbling……..stop protesting……..live your life to your full potential. Be a winner, not a loser!

Today has been a quiet Sunday.  Most of my time today was spent on doing research on website domains and reading materials on domain parking, domain forwarding, monetising domains, etc. And I finally recorded all my domains in an excel spreadsheet so that I can keep track of them. Hmmm…I now own over 50 website domains.  I am confident that in a few months’ time, I can flip many of the domains for a good profit. Investing in domains is like investing in land in the physical world. Domains are the online form of real estate assets that can generate a regular income ( a bit like rental income of real estate in the physical world) and a good profit when you flip them.

My eye are getting very tired and stressed now. I will have to call it a day now. But before I go, I just want to share this funny little eye test with you. Have a good laugh!

If you cannot decipher anything in the illustration below, try pulling the corners of your eyes as if you are a Chinese…. holy smoke, it works!

Another way to decipher the above is just sit back a little further from your computer screen. Now, wasn’t that fun? Haha!
