Down and Down and Down...

I have been feeling down since last night..
When i'm back from Mabul island in Tawau..
No more fun and back to the office days...

Today is really a bad day for me..
I couldn't start my car engine this morning..
Took 2 hours leave to get my car fixed..
.. But another accident happened just after the car is fixed...
I think my reddie gonna be in the car service centre for some time...
No car for works...

Wondering what I'm doing now..
What I'm asking for...
I know I'm always complaining..
Complaining about works.. about life.. about anything..
I din mean anything bad..
I think only my heart knows what I want..
But my brain is confused.. that's why I always complain but never do anything...
What's right and what's wrong..
What's true and what's fake..
Who can tell me and lead me to the right way...
Can I start a new life without any burdens or worries?

Do whatever I like.. don't care for how others think of me..
Be who I'm.. angry when I want to.. laugh when I'm happy..
Be with the persons I like.. enjoy the days with them...

Who is Rich & Who is Poor ♥

One Day

The father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son.
How was the trip?
It was great, Dad.
Did you see how poor people live? the father asked.
Oh yeah, said the son.
So, tell me, what you learned from the trip? asked the father.

The son answered:
I saw that we have one dog and the had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond.
We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them.

The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added.
Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing?

Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have!

Can you afford to remain not working? ♥

We may/may not fall ill.
We may/may not live long;
But one thing is for sure:
EVERYONE will retire one day.

Income stops when we no longer work.
Can you afford to remain not working?
Can you afford to do what you want & when you want it?
Can you afford to relax with no more stress?
Can you afford to pursue activities which you have not had enough time for?

Therefore, START saving now.

Selling Comb to the Monks ♥

Question :- If your company , Comb manufacturers assigned you to sell the comb to the monks in the temples ? Can you do it ?

What is your answer ?
a) No Way , Impossible
b) Crazy
c) I will give it a try in order to follow my boss instruction .
d) Well , I will try .
e) Ya , I think I can sell ??? ( 5pcs ? 10pcs ? , 50pcs ? or more.. you name it )
Pick an amswer above and read below to find out if you are / you are going to be a successful person or not at all . . .


There was one company " manufacturing combs "which intends to expand its business and so the management wanted to employ a new Sales Manager .

The company ADVERTISED the vacancy in the newspaper . They are so many peoples turned up for the interview everyday ....accumulated to almost a hundred peoples in just few days .

The Company now having the problem to choose the right candidate for this position . So , The Company interviewer had set A Difficult Task to whom who want to come for final interview .

The Task Is To : Selling Comb To Monks In Temples

Only 3 Applicants willing to stay on for this Final Interview challenge . ( Mr A , Mr B , Mr C ) .

The Chief Interviwer instructed : " Now I want three of you here to sell thses wooden combs to the monks in the temples . You only have 10 days to do it and report to me after that . "

After 10 days , they reported .

The Chief Interviewer asked Mr A : How many have you sold ?
Mr A Answered : Only One .
The Chief Interviewer Asked : How did you manage to sell ?
Mr A Answered : The monks in the temples scolded me when I show them the comb . But on my way back to downhill I met a young monk who bought it to scratch his head due to dandruff . "

The Chief Interviewrer then asked Mr B : How many did you sell ?
Mr B replied : 10 pieces .
I went to a shrine and noticed many devotees's hair was in bad shape due to strong wind outside the shrine . The monk in there listened to my advice and bought 10 combs for their devotees in showing respect to the Buddha statue .

Then , The Cheif Interview asked Mr C : How about you ?
Mr C replied : 1,000 units .
The Chief Interviewer and the other 2 interviews were astounded .

The Chief Interview Asked : How you did that ?
Mr C replied : I went to a famous temple . After observing for few days I discovered that there were many tourists . I then told the Chief Abbot there " Sifu , those who come here are much devoted . If you could give them a gift , it will be more elating to them . I told him that I have a bulk of combs here and ask him to raft his handwriting on the combs as a present to those visit here . He was very delighted and straight away ordered 1,000 pieces .

The End of Story .


HARVARD UNIVERSITY had done a research that says :-

1) 85% of success is due to attitude and 15% is capability .
2) Attitude is more important than intelligence , specials skills and luck .

In another word , professional knowledge only constitutes for 15% of success of a person and 85% is due to self-cultivation , public relation and adaptability ability .

Still remember the story of Selling Shoes to African ? When 2 Salesmen were sent to that continent , One of them reported : Can not do it . No one wears shoes there? The second saleman said : It is good to market . A lot of opportunity .

Success and Failure is dependant on how we face problems .

My dear friends , Do you know eagle lives up to about 70 of age ? But when it reach about 40 yrs old , it claws start to age and can not grab the preys . It also can not fly as well . so , it is time for the eagle to make a choice ; wait for the death or goes through a renewal process . If it choose to live , it must try its best flying to the top of the hill . On the hill top / summit , it will stay for 150 days . Over the top , it will hits it features to the stone so that they will drop and wait for the new ones to grow . after the features have grown enough which is about 150 days , it will continue its balance 30 years life.

Dalai Lama used to say : If you only have smooth sail in life , you will be weak . The teething environment helps to shape you up so that you have the gut to resolve problems .

Though , all of us are undergoing turmoil , we still must greet the new year will optimism .

My dear friends , make your vow again and build a better tomorrow .

Remember , When the economic is good , they are peoples going bankrupt .
When business is bad , they are many new millionaires produced as well .
So, apply now the 85% right working attitude fully. All the best!

IT'S HELL TO GET OLD! (18sx! =p)

OLD people have problems that you haven't even considered yet!

An 85-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, 'Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.' The next day the 85-year-old man re-appeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, 'Well, doc, it's like this--first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. 'Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing.'

The doctor was shocked! 'You asked your neighbor?' The old man replied, 'Yep, none of us could get the jar open.'.


Happy Good Friday!
