I did it, I did it - Part 2


Wah... I'm so happy. I did it again. This morning as I was lazily trying to wake up, my wife ask me, "Are you going to do it again?". Not sure whether I am up to it. Told her, "Not sure, feel tired lah". My mind kept on asking whether I should do it. She said, "You told me you are going to do it today." I looked at the time, it is almost 9am. Not sure whether I do have the time to do it.

Anyway, I managed to get up and she helped me to it. And I DID IT! I DID IT AGAIN... LOL.

zzzz.... Now I am feeling the aching. But I am very happy lah. Satisfied

Studying nightmares

I had my nightmares again lately. No, it is not about ghosts or evil spirits stuffs. It is about being in school or campus again. Always, I would dream of being a student and I had to sit for an exam paper like History, or Law but I was not prepared at all. Wah... that was scary. The funny thing is that I never had the scary thoughts while I was in campus or in school. It is only when I am working that these thoughts, these nightmares started to happen. But thank God I woke up and realized that I am no longer in campus thus no need to go for any exams.

I wonder if things would be different if I had taken online college courses instead of studying four years in campus. Well, maybe it would but then I am not sure whether I would have graduated at all, knowing my lack of discipline in studying. Whatever it is, I have to make sure I complete my second degree by end of next year...hopefully.

My first mountain bike Le Run Avatar

This is what I bought from my petrol rebate, Le Run Avatar mountain bike, inclusive the mud-guards. Costs a bomb RM640. I pray that I will use it as often possible.

Kill two birds with one stone. One is to reduce petrol consumptions thereby reducing my expenses. And secondly, to get fit and health. If it is not because of the health reason, I don't think I will made the decision to buy this bike.

He is cute

My wife likes him very much. He looks so cute. I can agree to it. And she even went to see him once and then a few times after that. He is much younger than me, shorter and got baby face look. He has attractive looking smile. My wife went to see him to get her hair done. And also to give Barnabas a hair cut. He is the hairstylist operating two doors away from the cybercafe. I always see him walking past by my shop and dropping in to have short conversations.

Most of the time he will talk about his skills and business while I do the listening. He did mentioned that he has 7 years experience working in KL. However I did not recall him mentioning which hair schools that he attended before he embarked into hairstyling business. If you are in Malacca and looking for a good cute man to cut your hair, check out Mo Style Hairstylist at Taman Bachang Utama, outside of Giant Hypermarket. His name is Iven Chang.

My first bicycle exercises

Woke up at 8am today. Yes, it is that early...hahaha...early for me lah. Normally I would wake up at 9am as I need at least 8 hours of sleep a day. Anyway, even though with lack of sleep I managed to force myself to get up. The main reason is that I want to exercise. Yes, I badly in need of exercise. My body is getting weaker for lack of exercises.

Since I already got my bicycle yesterday, I decided to go for a ride to the beach which is exactly 3km from my house. Really not sure whether I can make it. The first few minutes are okay. Then my leg started to feel the acid lactic but I pressed on. I pressed on and on and on and on and..... at last I did it. Reached the beach and then turn back home without stopping to rest. And I pressed on and on and on and on and on and on....whoa the journey seem further on the way back. But I pressed on and on and at last I reached home safely. It took me about 35 minutes to cycle 6km. Yeah... I did it, I did it. Felt good over my achievement.

Now I am planning to get myself fit again and then maybe I will cycle to work which is about 11km one way.

Health investments

All of us will have some form of insurance. Okay, let me correct myself. Most of us would have some form of insurance. Most would have at least one personal insurance and maybe one or two medical insurance card. We want to be protected financially in case something bad happens to us. However, not all diseases can be treated easily. Those that can be treated sometimes cost a lot of money which unfortunately may not be sufficiently covered by the insurance policies. Genetically-related diseases are much more difficult to treat where you need to have the right compatible donors.

Aware of this difficulties, most parents are thinking of storing the stem cells of their own and their babies for future "insurance" against future health risks. Check out Cryo-Cell Innovative Stem Cell Solutions and Cryo-Cell Innovative Stem Cell Solutions for further information on this issue. And if you are convinced of investing in your family health for the future, check out the Cryo-Cell's "Protect Baby, Protect Mom" offer that they have.

Please answer my questions

Wifey told me about her friend's experiences with her doctor. Her friend has many questions to ask the doctor about her baby and her health condition. However, when she asked the doctor her questions, the doctor seemed very reluctant to answer her questions. Her friend was quite upset with the doctor's reluctance and attitude. It is not that she did not pay the doctor. In fact, she has paid quite a big sum of money to the doctor for the treatment. It would be reasonable for the doctor to answer all her doubts and questions. That is one of their responsibilities, making sure that their patients are well informed of their health conditions.

I am not sure why the doctor reacted in that manner but one possibilities is that the doctor do not know the answers to many of the questions put forward by wifey's friend. Due to lack of information or meaning lack of knowledge, the doctor would not be able to give a satisfactory answer and this definitely would not look good for him. I'm sure if the doctors make the effort to keep themselves updated with the advances in medicine, they would not have any problems giving satisfactory answers to their patients. If they do have a PDA they can apply for free medical blog widget and be updated with the current medical information. We want doctors who are not only qualified but also well aware of the advances in medicine so that we can have the best options available to us. So doctors, please keep yourself updated all the time and please try to answer all our questions. We can turn to nobody else.

Still haven't got my rebate yet

I know many people have gone to collect the petrol rebate of RM600+ from the post office. The papers reported that many people queued at the post office as early as 7am to get the rebate. Well, I do not want to judge people but I feel that they are really "kiasu" to do that. Maybe they scared that the government would change the ruling and they would not be able to get the money. No doubt there are many people out there who could use some extra money and this rebate is indeed a blessing to them.

As for me, I would only wait until all the "hoohahs" have died down and there is no long queue at the post office. I prefer to do other things rather than wasting my time queuing up. Maybe I will go this coming Friday.

No exercises last week

I was looking forward for the football game last Sunday. However, that did not materialized. After church service I received an SMS from my brother telling me that the football game was canceled. It was such a disappointment as I was really looking forward to my 2 hours of exercises. Now I can feel my stomach getting bigger and fatter. Haizz.... must really do some kind of exercises within these few days.

Server down means stress

I would not be surprised if many people have the thoughts that working in an internet cafe is very easy. It is actually not true. Working in the internet cafe does not mean that you just sit in the counter all day long and play with the computer when you are free. Well, to a certain extent that is what you would be doing but that is not all the things that you are supposed to do. There are a lot of things that can create stress while working in the internet cafe.

The most stressful time is when the server broke down. This could be due to the program itself or the computer is having problem. I experienced this problem a few times and I always feel stressed up when that happened. Without the server, it is so troublesome to control the other computers. I thank God that most of the times, the problem could be rectified in less than half an hour. Even then, I hope it would not happen always or I might have to consider taking kava kava drinks.

Cell Stem from you

If you were born 50 years ago, you would not even hear about cell stem. Maybe only the scientists would have thought about cell stem and the advances in technology. Now, the researches in cell stem have progressed tremendously. The benefits of cell stem research are many. Two major beneficiaries of cell stem research are the medical industry and the cosmetic industry. Among other diseases that can be treated using cell stems technology are Alzheimer's, Autism, Autoimmune diseases, Anemias, Blood and Liver Disease, Bone and cartilage deformities, Brain tumors, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Leukemias, Muscular dystrophy, Cancer, Stroke and many others.

If you know that you are in higher risks of contracting any of these diseases, it would be good if you do consider cell stem storage. You do not have to go through risky operations to have your cell stems harvested and stored. The good news for ladies is that it is even possible to harvest cell stem from women menstrual. You can read about it on All About C'elle. If you are interested to have your cell stems stored you can do so by clicking on Celle Order Now link on the website. The good thing is that you can even Become C'elle Distributor if you find that it has benefited you or if you are more of the business minded person.

Refined as gold

"A CRISIS always brings out the best or worst in human nature. What a person does or says in reaction to a calamity is a true reflection of his or her character."

Found this phrase from The Star paper today. How true and apt it is as I reflected on the situations that is happening in the past week. Each one has a choice to make. I am also reminded of the verse that says that it is from man's own heart that his words reflects. And another verse which says that the tongue has the power of life and death. And yet it is very difficult to tame the tongue. With the tongue we praise our God and with it also we cursed man; this should not be so.

It is very easy to react negatively to a circumstance that is against us. That does not take any courage or strength to do. It comes naturally. But it takes a lot of energy, strength, will-power and courage to do the opposite, to react positively, to humble oneself, to show love despites the hurts that is still cutting in our hearts. Such a man is rare to find. To be able to show Christlike love despite the hurts we received. As Jesus looked at the soldiers and people who sentenced Him to the agony and pain of the cross, He asked His Father to forgive them for they know not what they are doing.

Have I achieved that character? Well it is still far on the horizon but I am pushing myself to walk towards it. It takes lots of strength and will-power but I want to do it. I want to stand before my Maker and after being tested, to be able to stand victoriously and refined as gold.


Different people have different perception. One man's meat could be another man's poison. A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented, "Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey? "Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and commented, "The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.

Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, "How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman." The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented, "Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders.

It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future.

Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear..

I want this and that

Human nature. Always want to have things. Always want to buy this and that. Natural tendency for us to want to own something, anything. Right now, what I want is a new computer. Yes, that's right. I want a new computer for the house. The present computer that I am using is the old version Pentium 3. Yes, I know.... it is outdated but hey, I'm being honest here. An internet cafe owner and yet I only have a Pentium 3 computer at my house. What a shame.

Okay, it is not as bad as you think it is. My wife has a laptop which she bought about half a year ago. So we are not so outdated as it seems. The problem is that I would be using the laptop to play my online game and she was "forced" to use the old computer. She is complaining and asked me to get a new computer. She wants to get a new laptop while I prefers a new desktop. Time to go check out Why

Everytime you want to buy something new which costs a lot, you normally would seek other people's opinion and advice. Well, that is what you can get with Read the guide and compare the products that you are looking for. Now, I only need my wife to give her consent to allow me to use her Paypal money to buy the computer. That however, would be a huge task to undergo.

Have I got it before?

My daughter Clarissa is down with Chicken Pox. The once so lively and mischievous Clarissa is now a bit mellowed down. She will be scratching her itchy spots on her body and with the fever, she is not that active as before. Sigh.... it is no joy to see my daughter in that condition. The doctor said that it is not so bad for children to have Chicken Pox compared with adults. She will still be able to be active even with the Chicken Pox. Well, at least that is good news.

But I am not sure whether I had contracted Chicken Pox. I can't remember having it before. Wah... if I haven't then maybe I would be contracting it now. Well, if I got it then I will have to go through it lah, whether painful or not is another matter. Better to get it now than when I am 60 years old.

Gold Coin or Gold Savings?

This is the question that I asked myself when my wife and I discussed about investing our money. Maybank do offer gold coins for people to buy. At first we thought it would be better for us to buy gold coin as we would be able to have and keep the actual gold in our house. No, we do not have any safe-box in our house. Haha... my wife said that maybe we can hide the gold bullion under our pillow. Then we will sleep on a golden pillow...Wow!

After much thinking and also for convenient sake, we decided to go for the gold savings with Maybank. It is much easier that way. We received a gold savings book where we can keep track of our gold purchases. The good thing is that when the price of gold increases, our investment also increases. Hoping to invest more in the future.
