Life Partner

September 10, 2012 Leave a comment

So everyone tends to hide their weaknesses and show their very best in front of the person they have a crush on. As time goes by, somehow our bad attitude will slowly surface one after another, to a point that our partner starts to think that we have changed. That’s when problem started to arise cause out of sudden when someone revealed their true attitude, we have a hard time to tune in to it. In a lot cases, it ended up in broken relationship.

Well, I admit that me myself tends to hide my bad attitude in the early stage of relationship too. But me being me, it always surface out super duper fast. Not going to write a very long description here but I am thankful that me and the WiFe are the kind that dig nose and burp loud loud in front of each other, and we are happy that way!

I had a great time today and to my dear WiFe, please drink more water okay!

Blessed to have you. You’re indeed the love of my life! =)

of Ups and Downs in Life

So life’s been quite hectic recently, with deadlines and milestones came into game. That’s nothing new. But what makes it a good game is that it involves controlling variables that are beyond my reach. It’s a game of the mind.

Just a couple of days ago, I got myself into a major road accident and by God’s grace I am perfectly fine. Without a single scratch on my body. I wasn’t fast on the wheel, but somehow my mind was rushing, rushing from a place to another just to solve some problems on site so that it can meet the deadlines. I do know that certain issues are beyond my control but as my “kiasu-ness” kicks in, I pushed the limit of my responsibility and taking extra miles to make sure things get done. Well, I just can’t take failure. After the accident took place, I was somehow calm and first thing that came into my mind was “Mike, Relax”. I somehow came into perfect sense that not everything can be controlled by me no matter how hard I try. Just like the break pedal, I press it hard enough and with the help of ABS, the car still skidded due to the “oily” road condition. I tried my best, but its beyond my control.

Sometimes we have all the knowledge and skills needed to get something done, but if the environment does not permit us to, we still hardly achieve it. Guess I just have to accept the fact that not everything can be under my control.

Have Faith, in Him.

of Age, Self-Confident and Fear

So… the Girlfriend and I went to Damai Central two weekend ago to take from fresh air and our of random, I took a shot of the picture above – a young child running around happily without a single thread on the body. I took my time and watched him playing along the beach (Don’t worry, I am not a paedophile). He run and run and run, stepping on to sands and the water, collecting every single weird stuff he could find without any fear and without any worries. I started to think, why we human, as we grow older, we tend to lose that adventurous cells in ourself like what’s in us when we are young. We tend to lose confident in ourself and our own ability in doing certain task and fear starts to grow in us.

I wonder, if that adventurous cells never die off in me, how far would I already gone?

Bring back that self-confident in you and start running. Bring out the best in yourself and stop doubting your own ability. You will never know how far you can go if you never give it a try.

Blessed Day.

With all my blessings…

So it is a fact that friends come and go in our life, but I am very proud to call some of them my brothers. I pray that God will always be with you as you sail through every heights in Miri. Looking forward to work with you again, in two years time.

My team-mate, comrade and brother.

With Love,
Mike.

It’s better to give than to receive

March 11, 2012 1 comment

So the girlfriend and I were shopping at Cold Storage, Green Height’s Mall today and happen to bump into the World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF) booth on the way to my car. Before the officer approached me, I’d already make up my mind that it is time for me to pledge. Anyway, I still let that young man finish up all his sharing.

 

I signed up for a monthly pledge of RM38 per month and will upgrade to RM58 per month when I feel I am ready for it. Not for the tax exemption, but to give something back to the nature. Remember, we should be good steward of God’s wonderful creations.

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26)

 

Be Blessed, and Bless Others!

of Egos and Living

So its has been raining here in KL for the past two hour and I’m spending my night sipping a cup of Earl Grey tea here in Gloria Jean’s, Bukit Bintang. Of cause, I do what I do best – observing people. I do not know why I have this boring hobby but I can seriously sit alone at some cafe and observe people for hours… Weird huh?

Anyway, there was this one Indian man caught my attention. In midst of heavy rain, this man was running around with his body soaking wet selling umbrellas. I saw him being rejected time after time by people he approached but he never gave up. I saw a group of youngster teasing and laughed at him but yet he never stop his search for customers too! If I were in his shoes, I would had run away and hide…egos!

I had always put a very high respect to people (especially young or middle age man) who can put down their egos and walk around the street, coffee shops to sale some fruits, cakes, or even umbrella like what we have here.(Of cause, excluding those guys walking around selling stolen mobile phones or other illegal goods.) Some of them have a normal day-job and some of them might be jobless. But all of them do this just to put food on the table for family or themselves… I can’t help but to feel blessed for what God blessed me with, although I am not rich like Bill Gates, but I don’t have to earn a living like them. …I just respect them.

Father Lord, I thank You for Your abundant blessings on my and my family. I thank You that You always take good care of us and make sure there’s food on our table. Father Lord, I uphold all these people who willing to put down their egos to find a living. Bless them. In Jesus name. Amen.
