Life From My Eyes~

hey ya, back again. Time for my annual update for my blog. I'm been busy goin to class every day from monday to friday. Routine work.I think education system in msia shud change if they;re gonna make learning fun. I once read this old aphorism,'I hear and forget,i see and i understand,i do and i remember' Thats how educating ppl shud be. How can u just give them lectures after lectures,bulks of notes and just make them for a written test tat ultimately judges the students whether they are qualified to do watever that they;ve signed up for. And those computer labs shit are total bull,u go in a room filled with computers,u choose the computer of ur liking,(mine is the one underneath the air cond vent)click open a program tat gives u some animations and a whole shitload of words and they even have narrators to lecture u on the lecture. WOW tats great.more lecture and this time from a computer. I totally understands the whole how the crap works,for now. I believe the human mind is a miracle itself. Only thing are the way of teaching tats a tad bit old.

okay,rant about my classes are done. Now the whole make ur choices in life and face the consequences thing. It funny how funny this whole thing works. I;ve been told hey,tats not the right thing to do. And i dun get how the right thing comes around.I mean anyone can tell me wats the absolute truth? wat is morally right for one person might not be the morally right thing to do for another person now right? okay,for example,Emos, yeah those tat use eye liners and always black from head to toe. It how they express themselves so wat makes them losers? Its funny.

counting ur blessingS~!

I always tell ppl to count their blessing and still i complain often sometimes.Well this time i want to share with u guys about a thank u list from someone who grew up having more downs than ups and still she is the most giggle-able person i;ve ever met.Nothing is easy. so here;s the thank u list and hope u feel better about ur life and the choices tat u've made along the years.

I am thankful that I was born poor--that I did not come into this world burdened by the whims of wealthy parents, with a bag of gold around my neck.

I am thankful for the adversities which have crossed my pathway, for they have taught me self-control, perseverance, tolerance and forgiveness.

I am thankful for the mistakes I have made, for through them I have learned the wisdom of caution.

I am thankful for having discovered that only that which I do for myself will be of permanent benefit to me.

I am thankful for having learned that I may enjoy real happiness in exact proportion to the extent that I help others to be happy.

I am thankful for having learned that before I can GET I must GIVE, and, that I will get exactly that which I give.

I am thankful for having learned that the best way to punish those who are unjust toward me is not to punish them at all, except by practicing the Golden Rule philosophy.

I am thankful for having learned, from the world war that has just closed, that brute force of MIGHT cannot win against that greater force of RIGHT, and that this applies to an individual the same as to nations.

I am thankful for having learned the folly of engaging in any transaction which does not benefit all who participate.

I am thankful for having learned that "like attracts like" --that "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

ps-she;s a little philosophical.and she stays in sg. our very own little miss giggles,ester ling.

overdue hello to 2009

hello 2009...it was just like yesterday,i was in my primary one first day class when teacher,Puan Dang asked me to start everyday 's work by writing the date at the top corner of the page. Little did i know,it was kinda like signing up for 10-16years of studying. Well,that was 14 years ago. In this short amount of time,i've experience pain,joy,friendship and lots more ups and downs that made me who am i today. I've grown up but i'm still learning how to be a man. A man of my words,trustworthy,a leader and most importantly a happy man.
okay,wats new with 2009 then? My sister's married and now expecting her first child. Yeah..my goh jill leen is gonna be a momma.Of course good ol gideon will always wish she'll be a big momma. And then i'll have two mothers at home for a couple of months. One mommy dearest,one mama jill and will we be having kaima ester for christmas this year? *fingers crossed*. And ming shu is now my god brother. My family's expanding.
Well last weekend i went to singapore with my other 'family' and we had a blast,eventhough budget trip means 600rm gone. Freaking currency rate.But we had a blast tho. We stayed in this old 60s looking building with other backpackers sharing toilet and all,but it was good experience. One night me,joey and meichan went walking around town just to see how singapore is like at night,we got lost and ended up walking till 3.30 almost 4 around. Haha our navigating skills are legen..wait for it...dary....yeah u got tat right...but it was another good experience. MC's complaining was bearable tat night.:) But singapore was predictable,three days there and i kiasu-ed for days already. I get to go the most expensive golf club,sit in one of the most expensive cars in the world and darling vw golf gti. Big boys toys.If i stayed there for a year i think i'll go crazy cause no matter how hard u work unless ur paycheck is 6 or 7 digits, it'll never be enough. Money no enough..so true! -.-"
Okay what else is new for 2009 so far, i'm in my sem2 and i seriously dunno if there will be a sem3 for me. Hmm wat else? MC gonna have her third nipple removed soon,hope its not too painful. Batu wants me to mention her,so this is it. Batu's favourite date of the year is 14/3/2009. Car,sakae, and MU. But i doubt liverpool can go all the way.
That's it from me for now. Hoo Hoo Hoo,TTFM,tata for now!
