I miss my family

My brother and wife were visit to Kuala Lumpur last weekend to attend their friend's wedding. I was so happy and touched when I saw what they brought for me from hometown, Kuantan which is 259km away from KL.

2 bottle of "Lo Han Guo" chinese herbal tea 罗汉果凉茶. One for me and one for Donald. My mom boil it in the midnight.

2 pack of herbal as the ingredient of herbal soup. My mom worry if I lack of good nutrition as I always eat outside food in KL. I had cook 1 pack of it during my off day.

Pineapple tart baked by mom.

My favourite, “Yong Bitter Gourd" 酿苦瓜 (the one in red plastic bag). Many youngster do not prefer bitter gourd, but I like it very much. The food cook by mom is always the best in the world! I share it with my house mate and all of them like it too!

I miss my family so much!

Although I can't see them everyday, I will call them everyday to share my life with them.

Since I was in secondary school, my family members were familiar with most of my friends.

When I study in MU , I was active in Buddhist Society. I always share with my mom what activities I had attend and told her what I learned.

When I came to working life, I still keep on our daily conversation and share my working life with them.

When we were small, we always report every single thing happened in school to our parents. What my teacher teach today....what my friends said to me....

However, most of us do not prefer to share everything in our life to parents as we grown up. We hope our parents do not ask so many question on us.
We will said : "Ok!Ok! I am no longer a kid, I know what to do."...."Don't worry, I have my own way to settle it".....

I always remind myself do not treat my family like that. We should maintain the pure heart like a kid. In parents prospective, we are always small children. As they growing old, they still hope they can protect and take care of their children. We should not ignore this and let them feel they cannot partake their children life anymore. We should always share our life with them and asking for their opinion and advices.

Many people think that pay back our parents by giving them money is the best way. Definitely it is not. We should share our life, although we cannot meet everyday.

Daddy mommy I love you! : )

Wish all of you happy and good health.

Malaysia New Cabinet 2008

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced Tuesday (18 Mar) a much leaner 27-member Cabinet line-up, more than half of whom are new faces. The world’s longest serving trade minister Rafidah Aziz is dropped while gadfly Johor UMNO MP Shahrir Samad returns to the Cabinet. Likewise, another appointment of an old face is former Selangor Mentri Besar, Muhammad Muhd Taib while MIC loses its powerful Works portfolio. Amirsham Abdul Aziz, who resigned from the Maybank group is appointed into the Cabinet. He will be appointed to the Senate to enable him to take up his Cabinet appointment. The PM’s son-in-law, contrary to speculation, was not appointed to the Cabinet. A major departure is the the PM has done away with all parliamentary secretaries appointments. As expected more MPs from Sabah and Sarawak are in the new Cabinet due to their solid backing of Barisan Nasional in Parliament.

I read this meaningful article when I check my email today. I think it is worth to share :)

This is indeed beautiful though very long.
Please read to the end and you will be glad you did.

Beware of Garbage Trucks
By David J. Pollay

How often do you let other people's nonsense change Your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss,Or an insensitive employee ruin your day? Unless you're the Terminator, for an instant you're probably set back on your Heels. However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly She can get back her focus on what's important.
Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson.
I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab
I hopped in a taxi, and took off for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, A black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car's back end by just inches!
The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly.
So, I said, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!"
And this is when my taxi driver told me - It is “The Law of the Garbage Truck."
Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration,
Full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And if you let them, they'll dump it on you.
When someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally.
You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. You'll be happy you did.
I started thinking, how often I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often I take their garbage and spread it to other people:
At work, at home, on the streets? It was that day I said, "I'm not going to do it anymore."
I began to see garbage trucks.
Like in the movie "The Sixth Sense," the little boy said, "I see Dead People."
I see the load they're carrying. I see them coming to drop it off.
And like my Taxi Driver, I don't make it a personal thing;
I just smile, wave, wish them well, and I move on.
One of my favorite football players of all time, Walter Payton, Did this every day on the football field.
He would jump up as quickly as he hit the ground after being tackled. He never dwelled on a hit.
Payton was ready to make the next play his best. Good leaders know they have to be ready for their next meeting.
Good parents know that they have to welcome their children home from school with hugs and kisses.
Leaders and parents know that they have to be fully present, and at their best for the people they care about.
The bottom line is that successful people Do not let Garbage Trucks take over their day.
What about you? What would happen in your life, starting today,
If you let more garbage trucks pass you by? Here's my bet.
You'll be happier.
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so..
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe that everything happens for a reason.
If you get a chance, TAKE IT!
If it changes your life, LET IT!
Nobody said it would be easy...
They just promised it would be worth it!

Today's the 3rd day of my working life...It's much different from my study life.
When study in university, most of us looking forward for working. However, when we started to work, we all missed the study life. haha...

What is the differences between study and working? The first thing is the matter of TIME. In study life, we have a lot of free time. We can arrange our time to join many activities, visit here and there. We have holidays, especially the 2 months holiday after every academic year. We can go back to hometown and stay for months. When come to working life, our time is fixed. We have less time to join activities, less holiday and less chances to go back hometown.

However, I do enjoy my work. I work as a doctor's assistant in a clinic and research center. I think I can learn a lot from her. She is an experienced herbalist doctor, well known in healing leukaemia. I wished to work with her since I first visit her center in last year. I am really glad to work there.

I will share more on health care and naturopathic knowledge in my blog in the future. :)
Wish you all happy and good health. : )

Days in KL

I stayed in my hometown, Kuantan since I back from Taiwan. After enjoy my holidays for about 2 months, I came to KL again.. I miss my family and the cute baby, Lavender.

These days are rainy days, I catch the flu and suffer from blocked nose.
However, I have good days here.
I am going to share with you what I did these days :)

I came to Kl on tuesday, on that night, I gave a dharma sharing in MU buddhist society dharma class on the topic brahmavihara. I was thankful to the exco for giving me chances to learn and to share. I learnt a lot in the process of preparing the talk. It was a nice experience.

On the next morning, all of my house mate woke up early in the morning at 6am to practice morning puja (chanting) together. After that, some of us who do not have class in the morning were heading to Brickfields Maha-Vihara for breakfast Dana (food offering to Sangha members).
We bought fried meehoon from the mamak stall near to the temple. Most of the monks there are from Sri Lanka, therefore we usually bring along Indian food instead of Chinese food.

Today, in the afternoon, I followed one of my roomate, Sook Kwan to United Voice. It is a charity centre hiring people with learning difficulties. They making some craft like book marks, cards etc for sell. This was the first time I been there. Most of them were so friendly and enjoying their work. They gave us a warm welcome, and introduce themselves when we just step into the centre. Everyone has their own tray with materials to work on. Although they have learning difficulties, they did their jobs very well. We join them in the craft making, help them to tie the bookmarks.
They put so many effort on every single bookmark and card. So, please support them by buying their products if they approach you : )

At night, I went to job interview, and I will start working in PJ next Tuesday!

Tomorrow, is the time for me to balik kampung so that I can vote on 8th of March!
