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.

Vege Soup – Level: Luxurious

So the girlfriend and I were having our humble lunch at Mid-Valley Food Junction. Due to the hot weather, I opted for vege soup from this Yong Tau Foo store. Out of my expectation, it cost me RM15.90 for that few pieces of vegetables! Oh…how much I love Kuching!

Patiently Waiting

August 1, 2011 3 comments

Blessed Day people! So I always drive by Jalan Tabuan while on the way back from work and this doggie caught my attention. Unlike those stray doggies that we normally see on the road, this particular one were not running around looking for food, but had always been sited at the same position and seem to be waiting for something. With high hope in the eyes. It reminds me of the infamous Hachiko.

It just makes me think. Why doggies can have such great patient and high hope, and I get fed up and impatient easily. I guess that is something that I need to learn, from a creature much lesser-smart than me.

Wish you all (and me) a great August ahead!

How To Bypass Internet Censorship in Malaysia

July 31, 2011 1 comment

Blessed Day people! So  Malaysia has taken its step in their effort to lower down the rate of internet piracy by ordering ISP to block some of the leading file sharing websites. I must say it is a good effort taken in lowering down the rate of such crime, but what if any of us actually stored some “important” or “useful” files on those blocked website and really, really need to download it back. Well, there are numerous ways to bypass such censorship but I am going to share with you all one of the simplest way!

 

Introducing… GOOGLE PUBLIC DNS! (click on the link and read it if you really need to know what is it before you give it a try.) Here’s how to do it:

 

1. Right click on the internet connection icon on notification area and select “Open Network and Sharing Center”

2. Select “Change Adapter Setting”

3. Right click on your current connection adaptor and select “Properties”

4. Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click on “Properties”

5. Check on “Use the following DNS server addresses” and key in the following DNS:

Preferred DNS Server: 8.8.8.8

Alternate DNS Server: 8.8.4.4

Click ok ok ok and your good to go!
