Life Liberation Activity on CNY Day 4 (19 Feb, 2018)

My friends came to fetch me @8.45am to go to East Coast Park for life liberation. Before that, we went to fetch Shi Fu at Butterworth Lane. After that, we went to Seng Shiong Supermarket to buy the clams which we wanted to liberate. Sometimes we may even get scolded by the public as they said we bought all the clams and they are left with no clam to buy to eat, LOL. After the staff packed the clams, they brought them to the car and off we go to East Coast Park. Before liberating, the Shi Fu and us chanted the Mantra. Then we released the clams into the Canal. After the activity, all of us went home. It is a meaningful and joyful activity.

After our reunion dinner on Chinese New Year Eve (Thursday), we went to River Ang Bao for a walk. As we went there in a group so I did not manage to take many photos. However today (Saturday), I went again with my mom, as there are only the two of us, so I get to take more photos. Here are some photos to share.

Finally

Finally tried Korean Bingsu today (Sat, 10 Feb), thanks to Buddy Jose for accompanying me to try and share. We ordered the Mango and Cheesecake Bingsu to try at S$7.90, price very reasonable as usually Bingsu in SG can cost up to S$20 plus plus. The mango is very tasty, the cheesecake nice and overall this dessert is not too sweet, just nice, so I would recommend. It is available at D-Lite Vegetarian Restaurant at Toa Payoh Central, near to Toa Payoh Library.

Do you shower in the morning or in the evening?

For quite a long time, the survey company (me!) has not asked a survey question, haha, so here is another one, do you shower in the morning before going to work or in the evening after you come back from work? For me, last time when I first started work in the society, I do not have the habit of showering in the morning before work, usually I quickly dressed and make up and off I go to work. Only after come back from work, then I shower. Then after that, influenced by my colleague, I showered diligently in the morning before going to work. I also showered after I came back from work, so I showered two times in a day. They say in a humid country and weather like SG, it is common to shower twice or even three times in a day. As for now, I only shower once a day, usually in the day, before I go off for my teaching. Some feel if you shower in the morning, you have a fresh start to your day whereas some feel if you shower in the evening after work, you have a relaxed feeling before be

MLM - Multilevel Marketing

Considering a multilevel marketing opportunity (MLM)? Be careful. It may well be a legitimate multilevel marketing business. Or it may be a pyramid scheme - an illegal scam designed to steal your money. Multilevel Marketing Can Be a Good Thing Multilevel marketing  is an attractive business proposition to many people. It offers the opportunity to become involved in a system for distributing products to consumers. Unlike the person starting a business from scratch , the multilevel marketing participant has the support of a direct selling company that supplies the products and sometimes offers training as well. How MLM Works As a consultant or contractor or distributor (different companies call them different things) you make your money by selling the products to other multilevel marketing participants. If they're not already a member of your MLM company, you sign them up. Besides earning money off your own sales, you also earn a percentage of the income generated by the

Vegetarian Green Curry

I have always want to try vegetarian green curry. This is the first time I try vegetarian green curry @ Ci Hang. It is always sold out when I go in the evening, this day I went in the afternoon and it is still available. They only have green curry on every Monday and Tuesday. The ingredients and vegetables inside the green curry include lady fingers, cauliflower, brinjal, potato and fried beancurd sheets. The green curry costs S$7.00. Rather tasty, but the green curry is not very rich and creamy, no complain though, as it is acceptable to me. This is Ci Hang address: Ci Hang (Western & Chinese Vegetarian Food)  72 Lorong 25-A Geylang. Singapore 388256. Tel: 9001 7639. Closed on Friday

Don't worry, be happy song

This is a cute and happy song. Just to cheer you up, if anyone is worried now. I especially like this part of the lyrics - In every life we have some trouble, when you worry, you make it double. So don't worry, be happy! Have you heard this song before? These are the lyrics: Here's a little song I wrote You might want to sing it note for note Don't worry, be happy In every life we have some trouble When you worry you make it double Don't worry, be happy Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh (Don't worry) Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh (Be happy) Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh (Don't worry, be happy) Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh (Don't worry) Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh (Be happy) Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh (Don't worry, be happy) Ain't got no place to lay your head Somebody came and took your bed Don't worry, be happy The land lord say your rent is late He may have to litigate Don't worry, be happy (Look

The book I am reading now

I am now reading this book by Christina Tangora Schlachter, the book is Critical Conversations For Dummies. These are some useful and interesting extracts from the book, just sharing: Effective communication is the building block to a successful critical conversation. You take a deep dive into how to use body language, listening, and tone of voice to develop expert communication skills. I also walk through how to work with different communication styles so you can resolve issues quickly and start building productivity and improving employee morale. To understand why communication skills are so critical to a successful conversation, briefly walk through what happens when people engage in dialogue. First, the sender has an idea, translates this idea into words, and sends it. Then the receiver gets the message, applies meaning to the idea, and gives feedback, making the receiver the new sender. Every back and forth exchange of words (and even nonverbal cues) continues with this proc
