His request approved, the CNN News photographer quickly used a cell phone to call the local airport to charter a flight.

He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.

Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger.

He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, 'Let's go'.

The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.

Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, 'Fly over the valley and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.'

'Why?' asked the pilot.

'Because I'm a photographer for CNN' , he responded, 'and I need to get some close up shots.'

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment. Finally he stammered, 'So, what you're telling me, is .... You're NOT my flight instructor?'

"Life is short. Drink the good wine first!"

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, 'Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan '

An old Master Sergeant sitting in the eighth row thought to himself, 'Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?'

When the attendant came by he said 'Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?'
'Yes,'! said the attendant, 'In fact, this entire crew is female.'
'My God,' he said, 'I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don't know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.'

'That's another thing, Sergeant,' said the crew member, 'We No Longer Call It The Cockpit'
'It's The Box Office.'

Quote of the day:
'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'

You are always on my mind........

Yashdev a young innocent college student had not seen my little darling for quite awhile. He asked me where is she at the moment. Pointing at my chest, I replied him my sweetheart is in my heart. She is always in my heart here! He thought I was joking and could not understand my implication of that statement.

Using the wisdom way I explained. First I asked Yashdev whether he did well in his last examination. Confidently he responded with a 'Yes', confirming he had scored all straight "A's" in all subjects. I went further to ask whether he brought in any reference books or papers when he was in the examination. He laughed to say how can we bring in books during the examination time. Quickly I said, "Yes! No reference paper or book is allowed when one is taking an exam. You have to store those knowledge and information in your mind. Is like those books are being kept and hidden in your thought. Right?"

Coming back to my sweetheart is the same. Though physically she is not with me now, but being that I love her so much she is always felt to be in my heart all the time. To Yashdev, if you really love your studies, those information you had learned and being taught would forever be knowledge to you for the rest of your life time. I know he understood my explanation.

The formula for staying longer in selling....

Selling tips...

Which is the toughest part in selling life insurance?

Selling is easy but to stay close with your clients is difficult. Or the other way of saying is coming into this career is easy but to stay permanently in this business is extremely difficult. Imagine after being in this line for almost 30 years, I have a client's base of a thousand and you have to satisfy everyone of them. You think its easy? A hundred might be easy, three hundreds is manageable but a thousand is definitely mind boggling. Even though you try to take each and everyone of them for a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner, and with 365 days a year might not be enough time to cater these one thousand clients. If you were to attempt this entertaining, there would be no more leisure and fun time for yourself and your immediate family. Right?

The answer is here ladies & gentlemen or my fellow colleagues. I take and love all my clients as my loved one. The older one would be like my mother or father, slightly younger than me I would treat them like brothers or sisters and the little ones would be like my own children or grand children. If only you could treat them like one big family, and love them sincerely like your own, our clients would not feel the different in our interaction. Everything I had spoken with my clients I remember. Everything I had promised I will fulfill and honour. I know their dreams and desires. I celebrate their achievements and success. When they face hardship and problems, I would be the first to turn up to stand beside them. I do that all the time for the past 30 years because they are my loved one. And I enjoy every moment of doing it.

Though I have a thousand dears, darlings honeys, brothers and sisters out there, and I might not have all the time with them, they know I do care for them. Because they know I speak The Language of Kindness. The blind can see and the deaf can hear.

Specially for those who sell - "Love your career and love your clients much more".

A stranger has the heart of a son.....

Yesterday I attended one of my classmate mother's funeral. She was 83 years old of the Indian origin. I took her almost like a mum because she saw me grew together with her eldest son who has retired a couple of years back. Her death was due to complication of long sickness in diabetic and six months ago she had to amputate her left leg in order to survive this dreadful disease. Though she had six children, many grand children and a few great grand children, non had the time to care for the sickly lady before her death. Except the last daughter who is still single, prepared not to get marry but to accompany the mother. However the last six months were the most difficult period for the mother and daughter. The old lady was extremely weak and one of her leg was amputated. While the caring girl had to work and to report for duty everyday. She cried to see her mum's condition. Silently she prayed and seek for God's holy assistance.

During this period of time, the next house or the neighbour was doing some minor renovation. A foreign Indian worker was on the job working independently alone. He knew what was happening at the next home. One day while the daughter was coming out of the house, this Indian man approached her and offered to assist the pitiful mother. With some encouragement and recommendation from their neighbours, my friend took the courage to employ this stranger to help the mum in every way he could.

In their house my friend proudly introduced this simple man to me. He is a God sent son who assisted my mother to her last breath of her life. He carried mum like her own mother. He cleaned and washed mum from top to bottom. He fed her with food and water. He stayed with her in the same room without complaint. When mum vomited suddenly, he wasn't afraid to clasp both his hands and to hold back her throw out. He related stories and cheered mum all the time. He never demanded anything except a place to sleep and some food to eat. This simple man is only 29 and I could see he has a lot of love in his both eyes. I have to say it again, non of her children or her in laws could have the heart of this stranger. I couldn't bear to hear this unbelievable story from the sorrowful daughter. I cried while listening. In order to control my emotion, I stood up to hug this man who could not understand my language. As humble he was, he offered a smile to acknowledge my feeling too. Before I left the house later, I took out some remaining notes in my wallet and forcefully gave them to this man I so admired.

Yes! Though we don't speak the same language but he spoke "The language of kindness. The blind can see and the deaf can hear." It's powerful enough to make me cried.

Birds can see and feel on human.

We have new visitors coming to our house three or four times a year. Usually they come in a pair, and without permission from the Master of our house, they could easily stay in for two or three months. During this period they have the courage to make love right in front of my home, and to the extend of giving birth to new babies. Mind you! Non of us really mind and we are too overjoyed to see their newborns at the same time. Our new visitors are love birds, I mean birds from the wild.

You might not believe! For the past more than ten years now, I have had birds brave enough to make their nests right in front of our main door, where we have some potted plants for decor. They came in a pair all the time, laid their eggs and hatched them until they turned chicks. At the growing stage of their infants, both the male and female birds were responsible to feed the little one. They were not afraid of us either, though we used to stare at them whenever we passed their nest. Many times when their babies fell out and their parents weren't around, we assisted to put them back to their nest. Once their little ones knew how to fly successfully, the whole family would leave our place and disappeared to nowhere.

The funny thing is, another new pair of bird would come again soon to takeover the same nest. I am curious! Are they their children? Or are they related? One thing for sure I feel proud of is!!! They picked my home and not any of my neighbours. I'm sure they are very comfortable with me and are extremely happy to stay with my family. This proverb cannot be wrong again. It said, "Kindness is the Language. The deaf can hear & the blind can see". And I have to add another few words, "Even the birds can see and feel too".

Children speak with their heart about grandparents.

Received this article from a mischievous dear of mine. Need some corrections from me...

WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?(Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people's.

A grandfather is a man & a grandmother is a lady!

Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run, they drive us to the shops and give us money.

RF: Not all grandpas are old. The one who is blogging here is still growing up.

When they take us for walks, they slow down like caterpillars.

RF: Try me! You can't even catch me.

They show us and talk to us about the colours of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on 'cracks.'

They don't say, 'Hurry up.'

Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat.

They wear glasses and funny underwear.

RF: Quite true! All my under wears are colourful and sexy.

They can take their teeth and gums out.

RF: I have perfect teeth and can give love bites.

Grandparents have to be smart.

RF: Have to be naughty as well.

They have to answer questions like 'Why isn't God married?' and 'How come dogs chase cats?'

When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Everybody should try to have a grandmother, because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.

RF: and grandpa is out chasing butterflies.

They know we should have snack time before bed time and they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we've been naughty.



RF: I speak good nonsense with all my grand children, until they drop their pants.

It's funny when they bend over, you hear them fart, and they blame their dog.. '

Send this to other grandparents, almost grandparents, heck send it to everyone. It will make their day.

Angry wife chains up drunken husband

A reminder for men who like drinking.....

A woman, who could no longer stand her husband coming home drunk, chained him up at a park in China.

Residents at a community in Jining of Shandong province, found the bare-chested man chained to a gym machine.

A note found stuck to the machine, believed to be written by the wife, read: "Don't release him, after releasing him, he will still drink. Thank you."

The man told reporters that said he had picked up the drinking habit over the years and that he always returned home drunk.

He had promised the wife to quit the habit but admitted that he had failed to keep his promise.

He apologised to the wife and again, he promised to stop drinking.

But a few days ago, he returned home drunk again. His angry wife then dragged him to the park and chained him up.

She put a glass, a water bottle and a chamber pot next to the husband before leaving.

Police personnel, who were called to the scene, later released the man from his bondage.

Trust has to be earned........

Selling Tips...

A young rookie agent asked me this question; How long do I need to close a sale?

Thirty years ago when I first started as a rookie agent, I had to visit a prospect more than three times to close the sales. The final presentation might take more than two hours before I could convince the buyer. I would be confronted with so many questions and I had to talk endlessly to make the customer believed me. It was tough and the rejections were high. I almost gave up this career several times. Perhaps it was The Almighty Universe who compelled me to stay, so that I could save more lives and families.

Today I talked less of life insurance and more of wisdom of life instead. I only bring up the subject of life insurance towards the end of each meeting with my clients. Most of the time, my clients don't even be bother to know about our products. They just sign their beautiful names on the doted line and pay as I request them to do so. The reason is mainly, they trusted and had the fullest confidence in me. So! How long do I actually need to close a sales? May be less than 10 minutes. Definitely I consider myself as a highly paid profession for a ten minutes job.

To the rookie agents out there. If only you could stay long enough in this career, I'm sure you could also close a ten minutes' sales eventually. Because that is when your 'Respect and Trust' is earned with your clients.

To hunt and be hunted....

In the Animal Kingdom, the male has to hunt and the female has to be hunted. By their instinct, the stronger males seduce and possess most of their females. Also the one attractive female might capture the interest of the arrogance male.

I believe in human we react the same as well. All normal healthy gentlemen have the interest to eye at ladies. Whereas all ladies apply their beauty to attract their ideal men. In principle the man hunt and the woman in waiting has to be hunted.

Why am I writing this interest? Because recently I have a niece who is temporary staying in my home. She is in the third year studying in the university from another states, and currently on training doing her practical with a marketing company in my town. She has been working with this company only for a month, and getting very popular with most of the colleagues. Though she has no vehicle to move around, especially going to work in the morning or coming back, there are many male colleagues who are too keen to chauffeur her. The father from a small town is a bit worried over the daughter here. As I'm the older brother in law to him, I assured him that he need not be too worrisome, as his child is a grown up who is smart enough to know what is best for her. More so I'm here to protect her in any eventuality.

I can't blame those male colleagues who are so willing to assist and to fetch my niece because she is beautiful and attractive. The instinct is there to hunt and to be hunted. Now is a matter of who is the winner who could win the heart of this lady. The winner is one who has the knowledge and the understanding of the woman. This is the process of life that nobody could escape. I had passed through that stage of life too.

For the man, you have to learn how to hunt with your mind. “My boyfriend used to ask his mother, 'How can I find the right woman for me?' and she would answer, 'Don't worry about finding the right woman- concentrate on becoming the right man.'”

And for the woman, you have to learn to be attractive by being hunted. “To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.” - Helen Rowland quotes.

Am I old? No! I'm still pumping iron...

Yesterday was an inspiring day for me, when I turned up at my regular gym to exercise. One younger club member who is younger than me by 24 years was admiring my physical. He said,"Sir you look fit and strong."

24 years ago when I first joined this club, there were quite a handful of senior members above the age of 55. I saw them bicycling and walking slowing on those treadmills. Their movement was slow and their look was unfriendly. I wasn't at all impressed by their physical and I told by myself then, I would not want to me like them when I reach their age. Time passes rapidly and today I'm considered as the oldest senior member in this gym. I don't see those past senior members anymore. Most of them had left for another world, some who are still around are too weak to be here. So sad for them!

The main factor that allows me to keep fit and healthy is to mix freely with the younger members. I never put up a serious face, especially towards the youngsters. I always attempt to approach them first, because I know the younger members are too afraid to reach up with the older members. I give them advices and tips on everything and they inspire me with their strength and energy. They seek my knowledge and I pump iron with them. For being cheerful all the time, plus the regular heavy workout definitely paid in the long run. Though I might be the oldest, I believe I am the youngest in heart for no one is as cheeky and naughty as Robert Foo. I aim to remain in this gym for another thirty years.

Sight vs sound.........

Albert my good friend is worried over his eldest son. Though the son who had graduated with a good honour degree in IT since a year ago, he still could not get a job yet. Whereas all his classmates are already working and are doing well. This young man whom I also know is intelligence and has all the potential to grow, if only he is given the opportunity to show his talents. According to Albert, the boy had written countless letters and had attended many interviews but non was successful. The father was frank to tell me why his son failed in all these jobs seeking because the boy has earrings on his both ears. Not only one each but three fanciful earrings on each ear. Two tiny pieces on the top and one larger piece at the lower part. The father had attempted to discourage the son to remove all these earrings but the son refused to take his advices. To this younger man who is currently 24 at age, earrings are his expression of thought and beauty. Whereas his intelligence should be judged by the brain and not by his face. Nothing could make him change his outlook and the father is so disheartened with the son's attitude and behaviour.

I know it's not easy for me to change this young man thinking either. Nevertheless I would try to write a few words here, which might enlighten his mind in case he reads this naughty blog.

All humans have the five important senses. They are the sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Of the five senses, the sight is the most sensitive of all. Meaning... You might be standing across the road, when I could not hear your voice, or smell your ordour or taste and touch your body but definitely everyone could see your entire self. Right?

So! Before anyone is given an opportunity to talk and to introduce oneself, he has got to look pleasant and normal. In the case of Albert's son, he was never given the full opportunity to speak and present his words to be listened. Should all his interviewers were blind by sight, and depended on their ears to listen, I am pretty sure then they would be amazed how intelligent would be this young graduate. So sad! They judged the book by it's cover and not by the contents.

Moral of the story: The man is intelligence with arrogance and pride, but lack the smartness to outwit the reality of life.

Specially for this young man - "Processing of sight vs. sound in the brain?"

Answer: Both, eyes and ear, are connected to auditory nerves but in terms of physics speed of light is faster than speed of sound , seeing is faster than hearing.

My son got a job with Google.......

Ever wonder why Google staff prefer working long hours in the office rather than going home?

Today, Google employs 20,223 people around the world, receiving a resume every 25 seconds from eager job-seekers, hiring an average of nine new employees a day.

A full-size replica of Virgin Atlantic 's Spaceship One (space tourist vehicle) hangs in the reception area

To work off the pounds, and the stress . . .
Google has its own state-of-the-art gym . . . offering weight-training and a host of exercise machines, rowing machines, lockers and shower rooms, and two swim-in-place wave pools

Other perks include free haircuts, dry cleaning and laundry, child care, car services, chiropractors and five onsite doctors available for employee check-ups; all free of charge.

Perhaps the most unusual bonus of all... employees can bring their dogs to work with them and keep the four-legged canine in their offices.

We already know that working for Google has certain advantages, but, believe me, this giant of a search engine takes the welfare of its employees seriously as shown by this decompression (stress) capsule that is impermeable to sound and light....

Stress capsule

Moving around the complex:

A slide allows quick access from different floors...
There are also poles available....they are similar to the ones used in fire stations.


Employees can eat all they want for free from a vast choice of food and drink, whipped up by in-house chefs.

Typical Google Lunch

Cookie set-up ................................

Work Station:

Each employee has at least two large screens.
There are 4-6 'Zooglers' per office


Large boards are available just about everywhere because "ideas don't always come when seated in the office," says one of Google's managers


Pool tables, video games, etc. are available in many areas


On each floor, there are private cabin areas where employees attend to personal affairs

Tech Stop

Having trouble with your computer? No problem...
Bring it to this area where drinks are available while it is being fixed...

Professional massage therapists are available.

There are many books in this library....even some about programming!

Rest ....

View relaxing aquariums on massage chairs that you control ... Ambiance.

I would LOVE time out in this room!!

Tell you what! One of my son has just got a job with them. I sent him this message.. Congratulation son for getting the job in proud of you.

I was equally happy to receive this reply from him. Like to share with all my readers....

Hi Dad,

The stuff that you see here are all real. Google is really a great company and joining the company is a dream come through for many as the recruitment process is long and tedious. I spent a total of 9 interviews over a period of 3 months coupled with spending another 3 weeks gathering all the pertinent information about myself and have it certified before sending it to google HR for regional and global team approval. And finally a job offer that came 2 weeks after that. The interviews were the hardest having grilled by your reporting boss and all the team members that i m currently working now. If any of them were to blackball me, i will lose the opportunity to move to the next stage.

Was fortunate and lucky that i managed to get through each of them. Frankly i didnt put much hope to it as i didnt know that i would start any chance as i didnt come from an elite university as preferred by Google. Grateful that the opportunity came and i must thank you dad for everything as you helped me made it happened . All the lecturing, canning, motivation, support and more importantly love that you had provided me had allowed me to learn and have such great opportunity. I m truly blessed knowing that you will continue to give the above without any conditions.

Thanks for everything dad.

The Barber.........................

See whether I could make you laugh.....

A guy stuck his head into a barbershop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut?

The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, 'About 2 hours.'

The guy left.

A few days later, the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut?'

The barber looked around at the shop and said, 'About 3 hours.'

The guy left.

A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut?

The barber looked around the shop and said, 'About an hour and a half .

The guy left.

The barber turned to his friend and said, 'Hey, Bob, do me a favor , follow him and see where he goes. He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but he never comes back.'

A little while later, Bob returned to the shop, laughing hysterically.

The barber asked, 'So, where does he go when he leaves?'

Bob looked up, wiped the tears from his eyes and said,

'Your house!'

If you can't laugh here, definitely humour isn't your game. Sorry lah!!!

Coz I believe - "A person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed"

Body Language............................

Allan Pease is an expert in body language. I wonder whether he could excess the gesture of my two friends down here. The picture that captures my thought. Is he talking to his child or is he romancing with his mate. His hand is firm like a father, whereas his gun is every ready to shoot. The poor little one looks sad with emotion. Can anyone out there make a brave guess for me?

The right way to educate our growing children....

Today youngsters are considered lucky to be living in a different type of environment. Before even coming out to work and are still studying, their parents already got them a motor car to move around. The parents want them to be mobile and the children feel the sense of pride with a vehicle driven by them.

Not my time! I had to walk and to take buses to school. I managed to purchase my first motor bike, a secondhand Honda Cup with an engine power of only 49cc. I was then eighteen and already working. Without support from my parents, I saved to buy this simple transportation. Later I changed to another heavier bike and when I became a salesman, I bought my first motor car. It was the Ford Anglia and I'm sure not many youngsters would have heard of it.

I was thankful that my parents didn't assist me to purchase any of my bikes or cars of those days. Otherwise I might be like many of the present adults who only know how to spend and not the least be bother to save. Perhaps the grounding and hardship of my yesteryear made me a stronger and rounded person with a better attitude in life.

For those parents who have teenage children, my advice is... Don't make life too easy for them! "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves" ~ Abbé Dimnet, Art of Thinking, 1928

Eating habits determine future character of a child....

Do you want to know the future personalities of your kids? I really mean young children, below the age of ten. My experiences tell me that the eating habits of children could relate their behaviour and character.

If a kid eats his rices first and then the food later, I strongly believe he grows to be careful and responsible. In future he tends to spend less and saves more. He could take hardship and suffering in later life. He grows to be humble and kind. On the other hand, another child might take most of his food first from his plate and eat the rice later. The chances is, he might turn to spend more in life and finding it difficult to save. Unless he finishes with a strong educational qualification, he might not prepare to undertake a job which is tough and challenging. He could be intelligence but his behaviour could be arrogance and stubborn.

So the next time when you have your meals with your children, observe their eating habits. Is almost like a gateway to see the future of your growing children. Can you change their habits? No! I don't think so, because it's something beyond our control.

I don't work but rather I'm having fun....

Tesh is my God daughter who just came back here for a summer vacation. She asked me whether I'm going to work tomorrow. I said No! I'm not working but rather is going to have fun and see who are those who are unlucky to be disturbed by me tomorrow. She was puzzled as she is only 16 and still growing.

This was my explanation. To be working for more than 40 years with the same job might be difficult and boring. Thanks God! I love my career so much as an agent selling life insurance, when today my work is almost like my hobby to me. Talking is my interest and selling insurance allows me to talk endlessly. Everyday is an exciting day because there are many clients or friends who might be seeking my advices in all matters. I have a patience ear and an understanding mind which can be so helpful to all those I'm going to meet. On top of it, with my naughtiness and playfulness in heart and soul, I know everyone would bound to laugh and be happy whenever I humour them. Tesh! Believe me I don't consider myself as actually working but rather is having all my fun and joy to be serving my clients and friends. I enjoy every moment of my time spend with the world.

My personal advices to my dear Tesh. Do what you love most and you would do it well. Be it your studies or on your daily life. I hope you would achieve all your endeavours in future and good luck to you.

I love this saying -

What to do when you are trapped in a falling lift ?

Something worth knowing....

We never know when and where accidents will happen to us OR people around us. Read on and hope this piece of information may help any of us when things do happen to yourself, our friends and our loved ones.

One day, while in a lift, it suddenly broke down and it was falling from level 13 at a fast speed. Fortunately, I remembered watching a TV program that taught you must quickly press all the buttons for all the levels. Finally, the lift stopped at the 5th level.

When you are facing life and death situations, whatever decisions or actions you make decides your survival. If you are caught in a lift breakdown, first thought in mind may be 'waiting to die'... But after reading below, things will definitely be different the next time you are caught in a lift.

First - Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift. When the emergency electricity supply is being activated, it will stop the lift from falling further.

Second - Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).. It is to support your position and prevent you from falling or getting hurt when you lost your balance.

Third - Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line. Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for your back/spine as protection.

Fourth - Bend your knees. Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimised during fall.

Daughter in law's Revenge...​.

A married couple was in a terrible accident where the Man's face was severely burned.

The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny. So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin.

However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the Skin came from and they requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man's new face.

He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!

One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice.

He said, 'Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?'

'My darling' she replied,' I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek.'

Has the will but no power.

What is will power?

A young person has the determination and strength to face the world but without the support and assistance chances he might not succeed. He has the will but lack the power.

An older person might still have the desire to see the beauty of woman but so sad he has lost his sexual prowess. He could see to admire but couldn't touch to enjoy! Coz he has the will but lack the power.

Thanks the Almighty Universe! I still have the will & power of both. What about you?

Married couple clueless about sex

I had a good laugh while reading this news this morning....

A HIGHLY educated couple, in their 30s from Hubei, China, thought that the wife would get pregnant by sleeping on the same bed, Sin Chew Daily reported.

Prior to their marriage, the couple did not dare hold hands and kiss as they thought the woman would get pregnant by doing so, reported a China newspaper Chu Tian Jin Bao.

However, the couple decided to seek medical advice after the wife, who holds a masters degree, could not conceive.

They have been married for three years.

The doctor was shocked to learn about their “sex life”.

The husband, who has a doctoral degree, said they were too focused on their studies.

Conclusion: In anything we do, intelligence isn't good enough, we have to be smart in our intelligence. Including love & sex.

The Power of Love

Arumugam was our ex colleague selling life insurance before. When he left the government services at the age of 50, he joined us in this challenging career until three years ago, when he opt to retire for good. Now at the age of 70, he intends to come back to sell again. Over a cup of coffee, he asked me this question, "Do you think I can make it Robert?"

This was what I told him. Selling life insurance needs a lot of passion and love. One has to have the passion and interest to meet people. Without this passion, seeing people is a torture, especially for the senior citizen like Arumugam. Passion alone might not be enough, because one needs plenty of energy and enthusiasm to sell at the same time. To have these hidden force and strength, his heart got to be happy with full of love. Without this feeling, the mind might not have the potential to move and grow.

I asked Arumugam, "Have you got a woman you love at this moment of time?" He nodded his head, a sign to relate a negative answer. I continued... For every success man there is always a woman behind. Sorry Arumugam! Before you start to sell life insurance again, your main task is to seek and court a lady you love most. A lady who could thrill your heart and excite your soul. Unless you could locate and identify this special female partner, you would not be able to sell life insurance successfully. If you open your eyes and allow your thought to ponder, I am sure there are plenty of women around whom you could consider to love. But the fact is, are you capable to sell yourself to the rightful lady and convince her that you are the ideal man for her as well. If you give yourself all the excuses as not possible at your age to fall in love again, then my answer to you whether you could succeed in selling life insurance is a NO.

To sell life insurance one needs to be brave, sincere, caring, responsible, intelligence, smart, honest, fun going and full of energy. To win a woman, a man also has to possess the similar qualities as spoken here. If Arumugam cannot even conquer and inspire a lady to fall in love with him, I think it would be difficult for him to convince and motivate prospects to buy too. 'Tackling girls and selling' works the same manner to me. Haha!

Just to let you know, my friend Aruguman is seriously taking my advice to fall in love again. Age is not a barrier if your heart feels young all the time.

The Newlyweds.​...ahhhh

A newlywed couple had only been married for two weeks. The husband, although very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies. So, he said to his new wife, "Honey, I'll be right back."

"Where are you going, coochy cooh?" asked the wife. "I'm going to the bar, pretty face. I'm going to have a beer."

The wife said, "You want a beer, my love?" She opened the door to the refrigerator and showed him 25 different kinds of beer, brands from 12 different countries: Germany, Holland, Japan, India, etc.

The husband didn't know what to do, and the only thing that he could think of saying was, "Yes, lolly pop... but at the bar... you know... they have frozen glasses..."

He didn't get to finish the sentence, because the wife interrupted him by saying, "You want a frozen glass, puppy face?" She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she was getting chills just holding it.

The husband, looking a bit pale, said, "Yes, tootsie roll, but at the bar they have those hors d'oeuvres that are really delicious... I won't be long, I'll be right back. I promise. OK?"

"You want hors d'oeuvres, poochi pooh?" She opened the oven and took out 5 dishes of different hors d'oeuvres: chicken wings, pigs in blankets, mushroom caps, pork strips, etc.

"But my sweet honey... at the bar... you know... there's swearing, dirty words and all that..."

"So, want dirty words, cutie pie?...


....................... and, they lived happily ever after. Isn't that a sweet story?
(life is all about the right way to "communicating" ..... huh?)

Why we should not flirt !

A couple was invited to a swanky family masked fancy dress Halloween party. The wife got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by not going.

So he took his costume and away he went... The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, woke without pain and as it was still early, decided to go to the party. As her husband didn't know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him.

So she joined the party and soon spotted her husband in his costume, cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice' chick' he could and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.

His wife went up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his new partner high and dry and devoted his time to her. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.

After more drinks he finally whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had passionate intercourse in the back seat. Just before unmasking at midnight , she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of time he had.

'Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there.' Then she asked, 'Did you dance much?' He replied, 'I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the spare room and played poker all evening.'

'You must have looked really silly wearing that costume playing poker all night!' she said with unashamed sarcasm. To which the husband replied, 'Actually, I gave my costume to my Dad .... apparently he had the time of his life'.
