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 Age, Self-Confident and Fear

April 25, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

of Love and Expectations

So recently I’ve heard heaps of sad-love-stories from people who are close to me. Marriage problems, betrayals, wrong decisions… you name it. All these sort of forced me to give a deep thought on this issue of Love, which have caused thousands (or maybe millions?) to kill themselves.

Love, what a big word. As if I am qualified to talk about this topic. Anyway, I have always link the word LOVE with the word EXPECTATIONS. We always hear songs and poems talking about love without any expectations, care without hoping anything in return. But is that really the case in our real life? Personally, I know I always put in expectations in any relationships I am in. For example, when I love someone, I would had hope that she will love me back, someday, somehow. When I care so much for someone, I expect that he or she would care for me in returns, or at least appreciates me. Aren’t all these expectations?

Read on only if you agree with my statements above.

Expectations varies from case to case, and it will never be a fair case. We can put in tonnes of expectations in one relationship but less in the next. But I dare to say that one thing is constant, expectation grows. Imagine that you got a crush on a girl and you hope that one day she will notice you, and not crush your heart. Soon after she starts to notice you, you put in hope that someday she would give you a little chance to be with her. So now you two are together, you expect her to be loyal to you, to reply your messages, to say “I love you” everyday…and the list goes on. Soon as she fulfilled all these, your expectations grow bigger and expect her to tell you before she went out with friends. This would further develop to tell you who she is going out with and where are they heading to. Lastly, you would expect her to get your permission before she went out with friends. So what happen to the “I only hope that you will give me a chance, that’s all”? Oh humans… (I know the girlfriend will use what I write here to backfire me, hahaha!)

From my observations and experiences, expectation grows in relative of its fulfilment. It increases themselves as soon as the former are fulfilled. That explained why our expectations tends to be less when we are in some unhappy relationships. I’ve seen a friend of mine whose partner was far from homeland. All what my friend expect from the partner was just to meet up whenever there’s a chance and that he would be safe and sound. My friend never care how the partner treated her, just a little good deed would makes her flew to the moon and forget about all what is bad. But were just wondering, how long would this low expectation stays? Unless they are forever in this long distance relationship.

Judging by what I myself wrote here, I start to realise that the girlfriend sort of fulfilled almost all my expectations on her. Cause now my expectations went on to the highest level: Expect her to know what I am expecting. Man, now I feel bad. But nah, that shows that how good she is, that is why I would put in such expectation, right? Hahaha… she is indeed a great blessing for me.

Peace out.

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.

So Long, Partner!

So I used to own a Blackberry Bold 9700 and without any doubt it is a great piece of smartphone. I couldn’t deny that it is far better than my Iphone 4 if business is concerned.  Of cause, it is my personal view. Period.

Anyway, after a long thoughts, I had made  up my mind to sale it off. For a simple reason – Maxis BIS plan is comes with a “luxurious” price tag! For RM 40.00 per month (on top of my RM30.00 call plan), Maxis equiped its users with BIS and wap services worth 250mb per month. Digi offers a more affordable package of RM10 per month for BIS and RM20 for BES but I have no attention to switch to Digi as the 3G coverage in Sarawak is still very limited. Futhermore, Digi’s signal can be very unstable at times . By the way, I still have another year of contract with Digi’s iDigi plan for my Iphone. *SIGH*

What ever it is, I’d already sold off my Bold 2 to a petite young lady. Hope that it will serve the new owner well. So long, partner!

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.
