a day back in school

I have been away from school office for so long.. for such a lengthy period of time .. away from that desk of mine that the calendar was still flipped at the month of MAY..
I simply have so much stuffs to do ..
so many things to see to
so many gossips to keep up to date
so many people to talk to regarding admin matters

Oh talking about admin matters, I m not sure if u know that SOME of the admin staffs from NTU offices are a bunch of not-so-people-friendly with the do-not-disturb-unnecessarily attitude. But if one were to study in NTU or NIE I am definitely sure they would agree with me over this view.
Perhaps the situation might be just like what the movie “Just Follow Law” (Simplified Chinese: 我在政府部门的日子) depicted; the inflexibility of rules and regulations, the staffs here in NTU were merely following the “must be written in black and white” rules with the rigid mind sets. Surely one would not want to get “shot” at when things go wrong.

Anyway, a day back here in NTU had been both fruitful and draining..
While being there, I can’t help but be reminded of those days when I was still a student, roaming around the school, rushing from tutorial to tutorial, free of worries except for the occasional last-minute-stress cum work-for-assignments-and-exams.. those were the days..indeed..it had been..

me heart says : i m Fragile

When the word “fragile” is mentioned, one would think of either glass or other tangible objects. Have you ever wonder which object would be the most easily breakable on this earth?
In my opinion it would have to the HEART,
The heart that beats with every pulse, with every breath one takes
The heart that is capable of experiencing many different emotions
The heart that could stop beating in face of shock or loss
The heart that could influence one’s mood
The heart that is vulnerable and fragile
And not forgetting this same heart that could contain the most wonderful feeling on earth – Love.
And when this heart loses its possession of it by an act of harsh cruel words or rejection from the other party, it breaks into pieces without even a sound of clattering or cracking.. ..
Hearts are so fragile that one has to take such good care of it for when they break, not only will it leave SCARs but also instill FEAR and PHOBIA as well. All these emotional injuries are not just for temporary but resides there in permanency for the entire life!
NO matter whom it might be, male or female; one who has a heart can feel the aftermath of fracture, the consequences of heartbreak... So ..take care… take extremely good care of it…
Don't break another's heart if u don't want yours broken..
and i sure hope too that i wouldn't get to be the victim or the criminal..
i just want to be me, simply me...love someone with all my might and pour all of my hope, faith, trust, love and most all of my whole life to HIM!


The human mind is very fickle
But what is a fickle mind?

the mind that "continuously runs after fleeting things";
the mind that "does not know the way";
the mind "intoxicated with worldly love and emotional attachment";
the mind "entangled in a dream" (illusion, ignorance or absence of the Self-knowledge);
the mind that is " foolish, thoughtless" (without understanding);
the mind that "does not remain stable";
the mind that remains "unsatisfied, and begs for more";

I am not sure what it is but ...
When white clouds appear, the sun is usually hidden from our vision. However, when the same clouds disappear, the sun shines forth from behind them. Clouds come and go, but the sun remains the same...
I hope too that my mind will be stable and steady over with time.
For fickleness has earned me nothing but trouble and wrong mentality plus the bonus of making the worst decision of my life which I will have to live in regret for the rest of my life!

Gone with a Click


What a "magical" hand I have!
I was trying out new features and toying with the idea of deleting my friendster account yesterday but who would have guessed that the account would be gone for good ~
I would not say good riddance for I still have a few unfinished work there.
Oh well, it has been almost a day since it was gone..
So I have to live with days without “friendster” from now onwards.
No more looking around on friends’ updates,
no more viewing of nice photographs,
no more of who is with who now gossips..
Ek !

Actually I could easily open another account and start this business of “busy-bodying” (or in singlish : KPO-ing), but I think I rather put all my attention into urgent matter on hands.
And perhaps this will teach me to mind my business rather than wanting to know what is happening among the so-call friends for sometimes curiosity does really kill the cat!

black vs colour

This poem was nominated for the Best Poem of 2005.
It was written by an African Kid..

When I Born, I Black
When I grow up, I Black
When I go in the Sun, I Black
When I scared, I Black
When I sick, I Black
And when I die, I Black.
And You White Fellow
When You Born, You Pink
When You grow up, You White
When You go in the Sun, You Red
When You Cold, You Blue
When You Scared, You Yellow
When You sick, You green
And when You die, You gray
And then You call me colored????

But, at least try to be a glittering star that show the way to life…

Once Broken..

i've learnt that ..
once whatever tanglible or untangible thing is broken, it is considered beyond the "before-condition", beyond repair, beyond hope! of course, the common and usual slogan would be "once broken considered sold" which often could be found in gift shops next to fragile stuffs!
no matter how much time and effort is spent on getting it back to its originility, nothing can be the same ever again. even if the repair is perfectly altered, nothing will ever be the same as before...

i have paid a high price to learn the fact that relationships, once "broken", can never be "repaired".. even if it is a miniature crack

Changes are inevitable but for a broken relationship,

it is hard to retain the feelings,

to maintain the same level of trust and understanding,

to be able to communicate with same familiarity and closeness


This article is rather interesting.

Perhaps after reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars -
2.fructose and
3.glucose combined with fiber.
A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just 2 bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.
No wonder the banana is the number 1 fruit with the world's leading athletes.
But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit.
It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana.
This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
Brain Power:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heatburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system. Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan. Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be re balanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.
According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!
Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!
So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills.
When you compare it to an apple,
it has ,
twice the carbohydrate,
three times the phosphorus,
four times the protein,
five times the vitamin A and iron.
It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around!
So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say,
'A banana a day keeps the doctor away!'
want a quick shine on our shoes??
Take the INSIDE of the banana skin,
and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth.
Amazing fruit !
coincidently..its my mama's favourite! hee

It's All In How You Look At Things

It is a matter of one's own perception
Isn't perspective a wonderful thing?
Actually on all matter of things, events, experiences..
if one can see it in a positive way rather than let the negativity and pessimism get the better out of you.
Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.
Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!
And because I have been neglecting what has been in my hand and hankering over what I could not achieve, I have lost those matters to me and I suppose I will lose one soon too.
I wish I could have the means to treasure those who matters to me!
I wish

It's All In How You Look At Things

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.

The son answered:

"I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
>We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

>We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

>We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.
We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.

>We buy our food, but they grow theirs.

>We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Gentle yet Tough

i've learnt that

i am not capable of being gentle in appearance or action wise..
and more inapt as i m, in being emotionally tough..

my working environment is such that i am constantly in need of handling things, be them equipments or apparatus, with such great care because each of them can cost such hefty amount that it will burn indeed a great hole in my pocket for every broken piece and damages done!

even after spending so much time in lab,
breathing in so much chemicals,
handling so much skin,ears,eyes damaging stuffs
gentleness does not become of me nor have i learn to deal these things with care and cautions..
so i rather not keep a record of the long list of things which are not going to be their perfect original forms!
as for the other un-working aspect of mine, i have to deal with "bombs", unhappiness, loneliness and every other imperfections of life.
i m not strong. in other words, it would simply mean that i am a PARASITE! a very dependent person..one who can't stand on one's own feet.
neither am i able to control my emotions and my thoughts.
and at times, i m "attacked" by some "abnormal" crazy thoughts which can inhibit in the mind for months..
this "extraordinary" characters of mine or rather property of my MIND, is the very testimony to the recent events that took place!
Anyway, all I want to say is that
"gentle (in appearance or actions wise) yet ..(emotionally) tough.."
is what i aim to achieve..
so, ya..cheers to "dilobear's life time aim"

eys are meant for..

i've learnt..

that eyes are meant for seeing things, for observing things, for looking beyond the superficial ..And they are linked to the brain and with the accompany of ears at each side ..which in other word simply mean, look not just with eyes but think with mind and hear it well.

And to strike a balance for the vision, one is given not just one but a pair of them ..hope one can make full use of what we have..

hoat la? :)

those days i went silent

Friday the 13th
>has been so overwhelming
(now i know why this day -FRIDAY THE THIRTEEN has been associated with bad luck all these years..even to those not-so-superstitious ones)

Saturday the 14th
>has been easy going, "enjoyable"

Sunday the 15th
>has not been the best day I would love to call it but nevertheless its "do-able" (a term not found in dictionary but only from the mouths people in singapore)

Actually, tell the truth, this is the fourth blog page I have set up.
The previous three hands-on have been too much of un-satisfactory and of too little "attraction" for me to keep me going with the writing. All 3 could not survie more than 3 posts. Thats really too bad right?

And to go to a deeper truth, I don't think all my blog sites were known to people until I "open" mu golden mouth to say.
Maybe because I am more of a perfectionist or perhaps I am surrounded by all the "pros" of this blogging field, I can't bring myself to "announce" this "birth of my simple shabby site.

But being a stronger believer of TRYING, I will and I shall and I must do a good job out of this site!

10 Commandments for drivers:

here's the Vatican's newly released discussion of the "moral aspects of driving" - it's the Ten Commandments for drivers:

You shall not kill.

The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.

Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.

Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents.

Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.

Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.

Support the families of accident victims.

Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.

On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.

Feel responsible towards others.

54th Anniversary of Martyrs' Day of Burma

54 years ago on July 19, 1947 at approximately 10:37am

the national hero and architect of Burma's independence, General Aung San and seven other cabinet ministers were assassinated by a group of armed men in uniform while they were holding a cabinet meeting at what was known as 'The Secretariat' in downtown Rangoon. This tragic event has remained in the hearts of the people of Burma as a great loss. ..even to this very day..
and because being a Burmese despite being descendent of chinese heritage, I remembered this day..and pay my tribute to our inspiring LEADER!
Dear SIR, I salute to thee!

What the morning rain brings :

18th July Thursday ~

It was a nice way indeed to wake up to a cold morning. It's simply a luxury to snuggle in one's own cozy bed while rain was pouring outside with the sky clothed in sheer darkness...

On such a lazy note, I woke up to a cold raning day expecting nothing but comfortness for this favourite day of mine of the week!


who would expect my day to be so hay-wired and laid with so much danger!

Well. .so this was how bad it has been:

The weather has been changing to a lighter mode by the time I left NTU for JI! But along the way, cars were many, jay-walker were handful but still such a sight was rare such that one might mistook this day to be either a weekend or public holiday!

And the mighty lord up there suddenly decided to give another round of washing up! This time, the rain came sudden and thunders with its partner lightning were much stronger and "powerful" than the last. By the time I step on the bridge linking Singapore and JI, it was simply a fog of whiteness. No amount of wiping on the screen would allow one to have a full view of her surrounding. I supposed we were like blind men in the wilderness of "JI", nothing to guide us expect the headlights of the cars in front of us. I have had numerous experiences in driving through such bad weather but never have I felt so insecure and scare before. Visibility was something one could not get. No prayers could help anyone placed under such situation. The only one who could help me, I suppose, was I, myself and I. Desperate as I was to get over with this journey, I paid my full concentration in steering and looking out for any "unwanted obstacles". And perhaps my hunch was right in such that just a few kilometers away from my destination, there were obstructions. It was almost 90 degree bend where the entrance to the bend was littered with the road-blocking-white-red-blocks. These huge tall blocks were scattered along the way. It was simply a Hercules’s task to remove all of them to make a way for an average size car to pass through. The instance I realized the pending danger which was thrown in my face, I simply froze. The only thing that could not have added oil to the raging fire was that there was no car tailing me. No sign of car driving in the same direction as I was. At that time I did not know if I could be thankful or cursing to the fact that ICES was located to the outer most part of JI. But at that moment, I did remember the wisdom of words told to me by someone I cared for. He had repeatedly told me these words so much so that they were embedded in me and that at such moments they naturally popped into my mind. To quote his exact words:

when face with a situation or a problem,

do not ponder over it with frustration or sadness,

for doing so will only add onto to the agony and pain.

The most important thing is to come up with solution.

When there is problem, there will be solutions.

It’s a matter of choice to know the solution and act on them!

I was indeed left with 2 choices:

1. To pull over and wait for help.

By the way I am a user of starhub, so you could have guess how the phone line connection would be.

2. To move on and drive over to the other lane which is meant for returning path

Oh by the way, just for information, the driving routes of JI are somewhat similar to the highways in Singapore. One road is meant for on going and another is for incoming. In the middle is the divider which is made up of tress.

And because at that particular bend, the on going route was still under construction, there were road blockers acting as the dividers to guide drivers along the way. Which in other words, with these blocks scattering onto the road, there was no more divider.

Thus, this clever me decided to pluck up whatever courage I have and drove on.

Because it was meant for cars driving out of JI, I was directly driving up to be head on head encounter with them. And blessed me, there were so many cars driving out from that directions. I wondered what they would have thought of this desperate looking female driving who keeping so close to the most outer lane (lane4) and driving in the opposite direction to them. And with that I drove on till I came upon this U turn path where I switch route to the on-coming one.

So on such a note, I reached ICES safe and sound. I felt like having sat on the edge of the roof of the highest building, having had a taste of what death would be like.

Anyway I was thinking since I had have such a bad morning, my afternoon and evening will be better but who would have guess the usual bad things took place with my data and experiments and apparatus. But by the day was over, I thought nothing to get to me anymore.

All I wanted was to get back to my cozy home. Back to the arms of my loving parents. And to let those I love know that I truly love them and care for them.

An Interview Question

An Interview Question

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for a bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die!

2. An old friend who once saved your life!

3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about!

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading...

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.

* You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first;

* or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to ! pay him back.

* However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. Guess what was his answer?


He simply answered:

"I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams."

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our
stubborn thought limitations. Never forget to
"Think Outside of the Box."

Teachings of ~Buddha ~

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

The problem is ..

Just want to share a short story, in which we could learn something meaningful.
Hope whoever get to read this will grasp the underlining meaning from it.

A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he
thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach
her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor
told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to
give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from
her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears
If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and s o on until you get a
That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was
in the den.
He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see
what happens."
Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?"
No response.

So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his
wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his
wife and asks, Honey, what's for dinner?"
Again he gets no response so,

He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's
for dinner?"
Again there is no response.
So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?"








"James, for Heaven's sake, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

Moral of the story:
The problem may not be with the other one as we always think,
could be very much within us..!

Actually I used to be like this "JAMES", but realise indeed, the problem lies with me even from the start. I am trying hard now..to rectify my mistakes, to correct my thinking and most of all, try to change for the better so that mistakes and error would not repeat ..and beget me :)

The unknown

If you can look into the seeds of time, And tell me which grain will grow and which will not, Speak then to me, who neither beg nor fear Your favours nor your hate.

To the arrival of RAINBOW

11th of July ~

I was awaken to a drizzling bright morning.
Willing as I was to sleep more but the knowing that the day has come, I have to "force" myself up, away from the comfortable cozy zone of my pig sty. Indeed, there were thousands of things waiting for me, which first on the list would be to see the grumbling and tumbling of cooking utensils by my dearie beloved mama who would want me awake to help her out because she was late but simply refuse to open her golden mouth to do so.

Anyway, along the way to my "Favorite place" - the very endearing Jurong Island, which is a driving distance from the "mother island" Singapore, I was hoping to see rainbow. Wishing and hoping since by the time I reach there from another part of Singapore, the sky has finished "crying" and was brightening up from its mood swing.

Being a sentimental being, I always believe in things like rainbow, four-leaf clover .etc. To see a rainbow, one has to put up with the wet weather, apart from the cold hard wind that blow by often, and accompany often by the loud lady- Thunder and the lady who like to flashes- Lightning! And it is not often guarantee that one is sure to see rainbow after every rain.

So in parallel to the life I am currently leading, I too hope that the rain will come soon so that at least there will be chances of me seeing my long-waited rainbow!
The problem however is that perhaps I am not willing to have the rain. With some thunders and lightning, I am already looking back to the sunny day that was before it, wishing for it be the same as it always has been. However, wishy-washy as I always have been, I simply can’t bring myself to take the first step. The very first step I could take to a better life that is to come in the near future yet I have fear so much to do just so with somewhat unwillingness and threads of hope for the impossible.
Often it seems that all we need is the initial step to get the ball rolling…

cheers to the arrival of the long-waited RAINBOW
