Two sides of a coin

There are two sides to a coin, the good side and the backside, oops, no i mean the bad side. In every negative things, there is a positive side if you think positive. And in every positive thing, if you are not self contented or treasure what you have, even a positive thing can turn negative. So as I always say, count your blessings and learn to treasure what you have (but of course sometimes it is easy to say than to do, especially if things around you are really bad, but let's encourage one another along the road, and try our best!) Don't you think so?

September is coming

九月份快到了~你在八月做了些什么,充实吗? September is coming, what have you done in August? Was it meaningful? 我在八月去了一趟台北。台北八月是夏天,所以天气蛮炎热的。 I went to Taipei in August, it is summer in Taipei in August so the weather is quite hot.

Diabetes Alarm

I have a sweet tooth and I love drinking coffee that is sweet and high in sugar content. Because of that, I always wonder does eating and taking too much sugar and sweet stuff results in diabetes. I did a research online by surfing the internet for an answer and some says taking too much sugar is NOT directly related to diabetes but some says it is related so it left me feeling confused. However, it seems that I have some of the symptoms of diabetes such as frequent urination, excessive thirst, itchy and dry skin and unusual fatigue. So I am kind of worried. Diabetes is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. People who have diabetes are twice as likely to develop heart disease than the rest of the population. High blood pressure and increased risk of stroke are also complications of diabetes. Any of you have knowledge or experience with diabetes? Do share with me as I am kind of worried that I may have diabetes. Thanks in advance.

Random Notes #5

不管去哪里,只要是旅行,我都很向往!但是欧洲不在我的旅游版图里因为实在是太远,太贵了!中国也不在我考虑范围内,所以我想只剩下亚洲国家了。或许可考虑到越南,胡志明市,到大马,到泰国和日本。你呢?有什么国家向往去的?

Where to go next? Phuket? Krabi? or Langkawi?

I need your opinion and recommendation, of the 3 places, which is better?

My Era - Memories

TVB's prettiest actresses. Are they in your era too? Do you still remember them? It brings back fond memories of TVB's best drama in the nineties.

Share a Meaningful Article

This is an extract from my Facebook's Liked Page, a very meaningful extract: Instead, what makes ME happy is when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes me happy is when I see my companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries. What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired someone's life. What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this BLOG is inspiring you. This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much more than what a Rolex would do for me. I think the point I want to put across is that happiness must come from doing your life's work (whether they are teaching, building homes, designing, trading, winning tournaments etc.) and the money that comes is only a by-product. If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that

Random Notes #4

1. I love learning new things, if on certain days, I manage to learn a new thing, I would be very happy. This is call 活到老,学到老,don't you agree? That day, I just learned to insert the "Link Within" within my blog posts, so this is one new thing I learned which I am very glad. 2. 所谓“行行出壮元”, there is all kinds of jobs you can do, it doesn't mean you have to be a lawyer, a doctor, an accountant, a banker to be successful, as long as you have the knowledge and passion, you can do well in any job which you like. Nowadays there are all kinds of jobs in the market be it social worker (paid of course), full time bloggers and blogshop owners, as long as you have the interest, perseverance and determination, you can do well in it. So do pursue your dreams and 如果兴趣可以当饭吃,那就最好. Don't you agree?

Happy birthday Singapore! 9 August - National Day

These are two of my favourite National Day songs sung by Kit Chan and Tanya respectively. Listen to them, they are really nice songs. Today is Singapore's National Day, I did not go to Marina Bay Sands to watch the fireworks as I want to avoid the crowds and traffic jam. Instead, I went jalan jalan with my mom at Parkway Parade. We are having the long weekends here over at Singapore because 8 August is Hari Raya, 9 August National Day and after that will be Saturday and Sunday so those working 5 day week will have 4 days of rest. Can plan for a short getaway.

New things to look forward to

The government just got a contractor to paint our whole flat, this is the first new thing to look forward to, now our whole flat looks so brand new, clean and fresh. I love it! Second thing is I am going to have a new next door neighbour after September because our old neighbour is moving out in September after the seventh ghost month. These changes show that things are not permanent and there is impermanence. So we should learn to 活在当下 and learn to appreciate things, don't you think so?
