- Rick Warren, the Purpose Driven Life

Don't date because you are desperate.
Don't marry because you are miserable.
Don't have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don't philander because you think you are irresistible.

Don't associate with people you can't trust.
Don't cheat. Don't lie. Don't pretend.
Don't dictate because you are smarter.
Don't demand because you are stronger.

Don't sleep around because you think you are old enough & know better.
Don't hurt your kids because loving them is harder.
Don't sell yourself, your family, or your ideals.
Don't stagnate!

Don't regress.
Don't live in the past. Time can't bring anything or anyone back.
Don't put your life on hold for possibly Ms. / Mr. Right.
Don't throw your life away on absolutely Ms. /Mr. Wrong because your
biological clock is ticking.

Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career.
Sometimes, there is no race to be won, only a price to be paid for
some of life's more hasty decisions.

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfill your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.
Don't bring another life into this world for all the wrong reasons.

To make yourself happy, pursue your passions & be the best of what you can be.
Simplify your life. Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements: abusive friends, nasty habits, and
dangerous liaisons.
Don't abandon your responsibilities but don't overdose on duty.

Don't live life recklessly without thought and feeling for your family.
Be true to yourself.
Don't commit when you are not ready.
Don't keep others waiting needlessly.

Go on that trip. Don't postpone it.
Say those words. Don't let the moment pass.
Do what you have to, even at society's scorn.

Write poetry.
Love Deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.

Take care of yourself.
Don't wait for someone to take care of you.
You light up your life.
You drive yourself to your destination.

No one completes you - except YOU.
It isn't true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.
Don't be afraid. Don't lose your capacity to love.

Pursue your passions.
Live your dreams.
Don't lose faith in God.
Don't grow old. Just grow YOU!

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of
your life that you'll never get back.
Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give to
someone is your time.
Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is
T-I-M-E because the essence of love is not what we think or do or
provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves.

God is good all the time!

In a fit of nothing-to-do-ness,I conned this from Wendy. *grins

When she walks away from you mad
[ Follow her ]

When she pushes you or hits you
[ hug her tight ]

When she starts cursing at you
[ say i love you ]

When she's quiet
[ hold her hand and ask what's wrong ]

When she ignores you
[ act cute so she'll notice you ]

When she pulls away
[ Pull her back ]

When you see her at her worst
[ tell her you love her and she still looks amazing ]

When you see her start crying
[hold her...ask her what's wrong]

When you see her walking
[ approach her..give a kiss on thecheek. ]

When she's scared
[assure her you're not going to leave her ]

When she lays her head on your shoulder
[ tilt your head too..and hold her hand ]

When she steals your favorite hat
[ let her keep it]

When she teases you
[ Tease her back and make her laugh ]

When she doesnt answer for a long time
[ reassure her that everything is okay ]

When she looks at you with doubt
[ Back yourself up ]

When she says that she likes you
[ she really does more than you could understand ]

When she grabs at your hands
[ Hold hers and play with her fingers ]

When she bumps into you
[ bump into her back and make her laugh ]

When she tells you a secret
[ keep it safe and untold ]

When she looks at you in your eyes
[ dont look away until she does ]

When she misses you
[ she's hurting inside ]

When you break her heart
[ the pain never really goes away ]

When she says its over
[ she still wants you to be hers ]

When she repost this bulletin
[ she wants you to read it ]

Stay on the phone with her even if shes not saying anything.

When she's mad hug her tight and don't let go.

When she says she's not ok believe it, talk with her-
because 10 yrs later she'll remember you

Call her at 12:00am on her birthday to tell her you love her
Call her before you sleep and after you wake up

Treat her like she's all that matters to you.

Tease her and let her tease you back.

Stay up all night with her when she's sick.

Watch her favorite movie with her other favorite show even if you think its stupid.

Give her the world.

When she's bored and sad, hang out with her.

Let her know she's important.

Kiss her in the pouring rain.

When she runs up at you crying, the first thing you do is hug her tight, wipe away her tears.... ... ...

Outing, Ice- skating, movie...

Ice skating! Woo hoo! My first time ice skating, Daniel's as Pyramid (Duh,where wlse..) Was kinda fearful at first....but thanks to my sifu's Nicholas and Sher Lin, I *ahem announce that I *ahem clears throat can skate! Woo hoo!
Ps: "Sifu must me there okay? Or else fall on my bum bum =( or worst, elbow,knee...

Cam whored a little, especially during resurfacing of ice... Below are a few of the "nicer" ones... hehe =)
Dan's attempt at skating, so terror...Fuyoh stylistnya...
Blurness redefined
The yeah-I-can-skate-duh look
The underdogs. Emo-ing.
An attempt to attain ice-skating wisdom?
The Pro's...showing off
The student (middle) + the sensei's at the side - Sensei Nicholas San and Sensei Sher Lin San
Random photos, coz all dunno how to be "natural"
The ice-skating gang, also the very people I love to bits
The Pros wannabe.

Sad that Rachel could not make it, missed her la. But it was cool ice-skating, save for the blisters that Daniel got, and the painful knocks none of us were spared...Awesome!

Followed by the Gameplan movie, it was an absolutely fantastic way to spend the day. And oh, the movie is fabulous. No doubt by Walt-Disney and still has the typical happily-ever-after ending,but this reality(sorta) based movie got us laughing at its antics, frustrated at certain points, and of course touched..They should actually release this in conjunction with Father's day.
The King. He never says no.

Go watch it. =)

Have you felt thankful today?

Part of an e-mail I received:

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said,"This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received."

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them."

I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the
door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Aknowledgment Section,"

My angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed "How is it that there is no work going on here?" I asked.

"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments ."

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I asked.

"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord."

"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

"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, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy ."

"And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."

Also ......

" If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day ."

"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 700 million people in the world."

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

"If your parents are still alive and still married are very rare ."

"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair."

You know, I really think its true. Despite us living in this far-from-perfect world with its imperfections and all, we've got a lot to be thankful for.The food on the table,(nice food at that), basic necessities, entertainment...and the people we love that surrounds us. Our family, friends, mates, partners and all.

Thank You for all I have and not, for all the people in my life...for reminding me ultimately that the greatest thing in life is about learning to love and to be loved. And I am rich because I love, and am loved in return.

Blah Blah Blah

Believe me,I have lots of unfinished posts on my draft...Posts on my awesome birthday, passing my Driving test... but I'm always too lazy to finish them. Sighs.

But since I'm feeling a little more "hardworking" today,I shall post a short one. =)

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. - No idea who.

Respond,Not react. - Don't remember who
But hey, its really true. If you react,instead of respond, you will spend a lot of time agonizing and regretting afterwards. So,RESPOND. Think before reacting. One of the core things I always remind myself. =)

Cheers =)

2008 1st Post

Its 2008 Jan 8...what a b-e-a-utiful day to "start the year", don't you agree with me? I have sooo soooo much to update, yet I have been sitting on things, procrastinating is the name...

But, I shall try my very best to painstakingly type out all my heart decides to. Cheers.

1stly, I passed my driving test today, after retaking my bukit, parking and 3 point turn. Yes Daniel, I know its super shameful to fail the 3-point-turn as I had, and to pay 150 ringgit extra...but now, after this morning's nerve wrecking time spent in the car and last minute tummy ache(a severe one at that), I passed! Muahhaha. Now I can drive. Really praise God man. and to bold it:
