dilibear yet..another lesson learnt

28th Nov 2007

I have learnt that it takes both courage and serious consideration to come up with the right decision or the so-called correct choice when one is put in a dilemma or difficult situation where by neither can one take a step forward nor backward . And it takes even more guts and remarkable strength to stick to the decision/ path chosen as with human’s complexity nature, regret and doubts of what-if will surely follow like a shadow to the aftermath of it. In much coincident to Dilobear’s lesson leant today, I would like to mention about this close friend of mine whose character I admire greatly. He is the type of person who will never ever check out the prices or compare them after he had bought things, be those cheap items or pricey stuffs like pc or hp! His thumb of rule is that one should never look back once decision has been made and have acted upon on that particular choice. For he said that there will always be a better offer somewhere at some unknown shops but surely one can’t be smart or well-informed enough to know it all. Content is what we should practice to achieve and in control of emotion is what one should be good at!!
Woah, isn’t it? Yes. Such is a person I have as a friend and I am so proud of this character of his. Someday if miracles do happen, I will introduce him through my post with all my readers-cum-friends.

things to take note...

You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period you're around.

You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life.
Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.
You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.

Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation.
The "Failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately "works".

A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.

There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons.
If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

When your "There" has become a "Here",
you will simply obtain another "There" that will, again, look better than "Here".

You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

You have all the tools and resources you need.
What you do with them is up to you.
The choice is yours.

The answers to life's questions lie inside you.
All you need to do is look, listen and trust.

Unless you consistently stay focused on the goals you have set for yourself,
everything you've just read won't mean any thing.

a song i like to listen...


By JOEY MCINTYRE "Stay The Same"

Don't you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly.
Don't you ever say you don't like the way you are.
When you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far.
And I hope you always stay the same,
cuz there's nothin' 'bout you I would change.

I think that you could be whatever you wanted to beIf you could realize,
all the dreams you have inside.
Don't be afraid if you've got something to say,
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way.

Believe in yourself.
Reach down inside.
The love you find will set you free.
Believe in yourself, you will come alive.
Have faith in what you do.
You'll make it through.

1st birthday Dedications..from me-2-u

Hello Dear

"Each New Year of our lives carries with it a passage to reflection and re-evaluation. This is a rich blessing; to revel in the excess of your prosperity and use it, Swim and get lost in the depths of copiousness; in the wealth of the lessons that surround you, birth you, grow you, teach you.The walk to our legacy is a glorious one.Make poetry with your words.
Make music with your breath and the verve from your soul.
Make love with your kindness. Unconditionally love.
Make truth with what is.
Make life with the spirit that exists within you.
Make movements with your force for they only reckon with you out of fear, out of insecurity. Be fearless back. And move!Be courageous in your pursuits and Live. Live! For the sake of all that is being around you; be a part of it too. Be inspired to find freedom in the midst of constraint. Laugh in the face of anything that doubts you for sometimes that’s all that we can do to fight back.The world never stops; it merely waits long enough for us to jump aboard and take hold of our destiny

This moment is yours.
This day is yours especially;
A gift to cherish, like you.

Illustrated is the forwarded mail which I would love to forward it once again to the readers of my blog!I did not meant it in an offensive way or to provoke any smokers.. Its just that I myself do not smoke and if possible would love to "encourage" those smoker frens of mine to quit this bad habit! Of coz, life is a struggle at times and we need some way to release those stress out..


To my good friend who smoke,

I don't mind if you smoke .
It is your right, and I respect it.
It is your life , and it is your health that will suffer in the long run, anyway.
Moreover, it will be your family and loved ones who would be affected.

I do understand that you cannot live the day without smoking a stick or two or even a pack of cigarettes, for that matter. It is your money you waste, anyway.

But I do mind, friends, whenever you smoke around us non-smokers . Because I can't understand why you smoke so carelessly around us, like you don't respect our right to breathe clean air or the right for us to be non-smoker and stay healthy.

I know you like the smell and feel of your smoke, but maybe there are people around you who hate it.

We would like to respect your right to smoke because you are my friends. But can you also please respect my right too? My right to live a long and healthy life, with my loved ones and family.

Yours truly,

Your friend who would love to stay free from smokes and smokers ~

Have a great weekend ........

i hope the TRUST will still be there...even when love is tainted with suspicion, mistakes, hurts, sorrow and pain!

i only need this much help..

In my opinion, the problem with humans is that either we are not helping each other at all or that we are simply giving the "wrong" kind of help!
I have illustrated such problem with a saga which was forwarded to me from a friend. ..And oh coincidently, I can't help but be reminded of a little incident.. when I needed to go and download software to set up my printer. Being a pc idiot, with almost zero knowledge, I needed help to get the newly bought printer started..Somehow someone offered to do it and come and install for me. But I refuesed to get such help as I believe that so long I can get the link I am sure I will be able to figure out how things are done. Moreover, if such things were to happen in future, I would have had an experience in handling. So you see even for such small things, we can get wrong type of help. A small geture of help will do in this case but if given extra helpings then perhaps, one can't learn anything except dependency! don't u think :P


Once a friend of mine was getting off a train in the Cleveland Terminal, and a young man got off in front of him, carrying a suitcase in one hand and a cane in the other. The man walked awkwardly as he felt his way with the cane.
"May I help you carry your suitcase?" my friend asked.
"No, thanks, I don't need any help with the suitcase,"
came the reply.
"But if you wish, you may guide me up these stairs so I
won't run into anyone. I am blind and I have a new set
of artificial legs. But I've got to learn to make my
own way, you know."
When they got to the top of the stairs my friend took the young man rather firmly by the arm to guide him through the crowd entering the terminal. But the blind man stopped at once and spoke quietly:

"No, don't take possession of me, just guide me,
please. Put your arm on my shoulder; that's all I need."

Good words to remember when you help someone.
"Put your hand on my shoulder and just guide me, please...and not to clear away the crowd for me.."

Contrary Proverbs :

Contrary Proverbs :

All good things come to those who wait.
Time and tide wait for no man.

The pen is mightier than the sword.
Actions speak louder than words.

Wise men think alike.
Fools seldom differ.

The best things in life are free
There's no such thing as a free lunch

Slow and steady wins the race
Time waits for no man

Look before you leap
Strike while the iron is hot

Do it well, or not at all.
Half a loaf is better than none.

Birds of a feather flock together.
Opposites attract.

Don't cross your bridges before you come to them.
Forewarned is forearmed.

Doubt is the beginning of wisdom.
Faith will move mountains.

Great starts make great finishes.
It ain't over 'till it's over.

Practice makes perfect.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Silence is golden.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

You're never too old to learn.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
One man's meat is another man's poison.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Out of sight, out of mind.

Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Many hands make light work.

Hold fast to the words of your ancestors.
Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them.

taddy says:

"sorry me mess up everything!..forgive me..
really really appreciate everything you did...truly madly deeply sincerely faithfully..
especially the pix of butterflies..the pix of me-to-you bear..
your time and effort in getting it done...
i still keep it ..but then..i tot a lil modification ..a lil change..will i alter it..
hope u dun mind!
ah he..
will put it up...someday..somehow..when the MIRACLE i am praying for..will take place..
yes..i m holding on to the faith and hope and believe that will come.."

i wod lov one of these :D

can i have one? pls pls.. :D


Bidding farewell is never my cup of tea!
Neither will I look forward to doing it, even when the situation calls for it.
I like to part with a word of “see you” or “tata”.. never will I say “bye” or “good bye”. Coz goodbye seems like forever and there is this foreboding feeling of never going to meet again. This is the feeling I hate to have and will try not to have.. I rather have the hope of seeing once more, the faith that someday we shall meet again. Oh yes. Such is my character.. an old conventionalist.. the anti-change resisitor! Perhaps I may be too optimistic for my own good, looking forward to only positive things. Never even consider the “what if” or to weigh and consider both sides of the coin.
So you see, I need to grow..need to learn to think.. to expect things in both positive and negative ways..
Tsk tsk.. dilobear..indeed..she is in such a bad shape..better buck up soon..
Aza aza fighting!

letter from piglet to pooh

pooh, dear,

in a moment of folly and faulty mentality and strong as bull stubborness, i have made the biggest mistake of my life! and to make up for it, for such long periof, i have waited, with patience, with much tolerance of your flings, with much much hope and much much much more goodiness on my side..! just to have you look piece back things as they are...
....... it always ended up back to square one! to the un-finished painting!

And now with tolereance, faith and hope using up..reaching all the way to sub-zero, i wonder what more can i give, what more do i have to do, to eliminate this memory, this remembrance.. the pain and agnoy i could not contain anymore..what shall i do with them..when i m left here..all such a stressful time..with many left undone..needing me to see to them..but all the time i am distracted..or rather attracted to only thoughts of shall i kill the thoughts, the unbearable pain and all kinds of emotions rushing up at the mere remembrance of things we have shared, we have touched, we have eaten, places we have gone ...

what shall i do with life when u have packed and left me here search of more honey, a greener pasture..i hope u are happy with the life you are leading now..for i hope someday i can be much more happier and lead a more fulfilling life than you..
i hope someday somehow there will be atime...when wounds are healed..when words will be spoken again, when bad memories will have been washed away with the flow of time..where there will only be smiles, warm heart greetings and of once-upon-a-time-good memories!

with remembrance
and well wishes

goodie noon!

Sometimes isn't all about a bed of roses..
that is:
peaceful..and soothing..

em, perhaps
.......................struggles are exactly what we need in our life.

If we were to go through life without any obstacles,
It would cripple us.

We would not be as strong as we could have been

we could never fly.
So next time you are faced with an obstacle,
A challenge, or a problem,
Struggle a little- then fly.

Happy Punctured day!

Happy Punctured day!

Have heard of stories and even read articles on tyre punctured cases...
But I didn’t realize that how terribly upsetting and troublesome it can be when “ruby” accidently step on some spiky stuffs left on the road by some inconsiderate fellowers!!!!

Damn! (woops..pardon me on my language)
The worst thing was that I didn’t even realize it until a friendly old man told me at the approach of the junction to wait for traffic light to turn green. Best isn’t it?
And oh never did I know that for tires with tubes, the car will be out of control and go “hay-wire” wise once the tire get deflates. In contrast, for tubeless tire, it is only when the car has stopped then will go off unbalance by a little height. Of course, tubeless tires are better in a way that it is less risky and dangerous compare to the old conventional ones.
Also if one is on a low speed, it is impossible to detect any deflation in the tires, unless one has much experience and has encountered such cases many a times!

And I must say I am lucky to discover it fast and early to drive to a near by pertrol station. More importantly thanks to my lucky star, I get to meet many kind souls who would lend a helping hand in inflating the tire for a temporary time so that it can be used to drive to workshop and also another who guide me all the way to a reputable tire company (Stamford Tyres). I got a good discount for the repair and get to know the manager there. The guys at the workshop were so friendly and such fast worker that they help me check the pressure in all four tyres after repairing the spoilt one. So all in all, I spent less than 10bucks and get it all settled in 15 mins. ya..
Emm.... this is such a joyous occasion for me.. to celebrate..isn’t it?
