Teacher is the most noble profession of all.

YCLim is one of my respectful client. He has been teaching for the past 10 years, ever since he left school. The minute he was granted the training to be a teacher, he never look back. As in his heart he has all the passion to teach. With so much of dedication and commitment in this career, he was recently promoted to be a Senior Assistant in a Primary Government Chinese School. Not many teachers of age 32 could be given this opportunity and I'm pretty sure Lim would have the chance to become a headmaster one day.

Nowadays not many males would opt to become teacher. They feel teaching is a feminine job, and the prospect of making big money is very limited. The name as teacher is not so noble as before. Most young people prefer to seek their future in the corporate world, where status and position are more recognised. However not Lim again. He felt that teaching is a passion and he loves to see children grow. I told Lim... Of all the professions, I respect the most is a Teacher. Without my teachers, I would not be what I am today. They taught me how to read and write, they made me to understand what is moral, they helped to mold my character, they corrected my behaviour, I learned from them what's the important of discipline and they taught me all about the world we live in. Though they might not be around any more, but deep down in my heart all my teachers remain in my thought as long as I live. Each time I meet any teachers, be they of any races or nationalities, I will address them as Teacher or in Mandarin I called them as Lau Cee. 

To my great friend YCLim, I am honour to be your agent and a friend. With teachers of your special kind who has so much of devotion and love over this teaching profession, you certainly would be able to help our children to face a better future.The future of our country depends on our children of today. Lim, thank you for being a teacher.

Specially for Lim - “Teaching is the essential profession, the one that makes all other professions possible.”

Touch of love.....

Out of the five senses that God gives, Touch is the most intense. Though sight, hear, smell and taste are important, touches are soothing with feeling of niceness. Look at the above picture to see for yourself. The both lioness have no hand but they still need the touching of their bodies to distress among themselves.

This second picture shows a cat and an antelope. Though they are of not the same kind, their affection shows the touching is soothing as well. 

The third picture are the loving birds. They can't talk like us and their ears are not so powerful like human but yet they are the most faithful creature on earth. Whenever they are together, they touch each other often enough for love and understanding.

If animals and birds need those touches, I believe human needs more. If you are one person who isn't happy and are not contented in life, I think you are short of this one vital human sense of touch. Go out and seek your love. Touch someone you like. You will be surprised how the touching of another person would change  your entire emotion and feeling.

This is one unique touch I called as Embrace Touch of Love

I found someone's iPhone....

Two months ago, my youngest son lost his iPhone while being entertained in a karaoke outlet. He was  tipsy after a few glasses of beer, and forgotten where he had left the phone. He tried to call his phone number but the person who took the phone had apparently locked it and had no intention to give it back. 

Few days later my eldest grandson was robbed away his new iPhone while travelling in a taxi in Shanghai. He couldn't believe a taxi driver had intention to cheat an innocent child. Repeatedly he attempted to call his number, but the daring cab driver refused to respond. Gone was his phone he loved so much.

Two days ago while on a short holiday at a resort, I found an iPhone while walking around the playground. It was the latest model with bright red frame. The phone was locked and I couldn't call out to reach it's owner. With little darling with me, we both waited at a nearby restaurant for the phone to ring. True enough! A short while later, the panic owner called and I told him that the phone was with me. Immediately not too long, a handsome young man appeared in front of us. He was too pleased to see us with his lost phone. He wanted to pay for our meals which I declined. I told him he didn't have to do any favour, except be more careful in keeping his phone. The phone might not be expensive, but the information in it is definitely very costly to loose. He left with many thank you said, and promised he would be more careful in his way of life.

Moral of these three stories: 
The first... By being not honest to return, founder of the phone felt excited and happy. 
The second... By cheating, the person felt great and thrill to achieve his motives.
The third... By being honest, the giver felt happy and joyful.

Conclusion: Everyone of us needs different energies to satisfy our inner self. The bad cannot survive as good, and neither the good can live to act as bad. So whether you like it or not, we have to face the reality of life as   good and evil are inseparable.

Buying Condoms.....

Have you ever purchased condoms over the counters before? I'm sure if you are a normal healthy person, whether is a male or female, you must had experienced it before. Right?

Well! Tell me, whether you feel good buying them, or feel proud buying them or feel shy and embarrass about buying this little rubber safety needs. When I asked little darling how she feels. She said it's a man's job and not the women who should be buying them. She wasn't telling the truth! I believe as a lady, she is shy to buy and pay over the counter, especially when the cashier over the counter is a male. The stare of him might be sensitive when he prices over those packets she is buying. What brand she is choosing, why so many packets. The brand she picks might depict the standard of income she belongs to. The number of packets might reveal how heavy is she on sexual needs. Consciously her personal side of life might be known!

What about me? When I was a teenager, buying a condom needed guts and courage. However showing the condoms to my friends was a hero. Later when I got marry, buying condoms was my routine. I preferred to buy when the counter was managed by men. Some how or rather, I didn't feel comfortable buying through a female cashier. A good understanding cashier, normally packed the condom packets fast and neat to avoid unnecessary inconvenient and embarrassment to the customers. Now! At my current tender young old age, buying condom is a joy to me. I feel like a hero again. Because if one isn't healthy and normal, you would not have the chance to buy such requirement in your daily life. Thanks God! He still gives me the vitality of strength to live.

Looking for my perfect man....

Jenny is a 50 years old lawyer and Dr Hajit is 60. Both are my clients who are very successful in their profession. Except that both are single ladies. Their clients admire their success and achievement but deep down in their heart, they are actually unhappy professionals because they are lonesome without a family. Recently I had a chance to speak to them, when they poured to share their sorrow with me. Yes! They might have the financial success in hand but they lack the physical support from a man. Though they are very independent ladies, they still have a weak spot. At times when they cried, they wished there was a man who could provide his shoulder to lean on. Sad as they are, they feel empty with sorrow and cry in silent alone.

Asked them why they don't look for a male partner or a companion? Their answers were... Not easy to get the right ideal man! They had been thinking of this special man for years, and yet they could not locate him.

My advice to them was... Most men are afraid of too intelligent women. Intelligent ladies are difficult to cope with as intelligence comes with pride, boastful, egoistic, possessive, arrogance and temper. Men prefer a less intelligent lady. Men like smart ladies who are more understanding, caring, kind and loving. 

For Jenny and Hajit, I suggested to them that whenever they happened to meet an ideal man in front, please play dumb and stupid. Perhaps you stand a better chance to win over these men. 

How true this saying - "Some women can't find a GOOD MAN cause they're too busy looking for a perfect man"

Road to success....

I was so happy to meet Lili yesterday. She just came home from UK for the Chinese New Year. She makes her parents proud because she came home as a qualified Chartered Adjuster. I had seen her grown since a little child. Though she is the eldest in the family, with a younger sister and a brother, she was an innocent and  a quiet girl before she left to study in London 10 years ago.

The father being the breed winner, the mother had to save very hard to provide for the three children. Lili had the intention to pursuit her educational dream abroad when she was still young. After leaving her secondary school, she immediately went into the working force to earn and to help her family too. With some hard earned saving, she seek her mother assistance whether mum could allow her to study in UK. More so she was invited to study in one of the University there. Being so ambitious in her studies, the mother took out her entire saving for her. The combine saving of both daughter and mother might not be a lot but to them was   really some big money then. So sad! The amount could only keep Lili studying in UK for less than a year. Nevertheless the young 21 years old lady was prepared to take her risk to venture into this educational dream. Before she left, some of the relatives were pouring cold water over her mother as why she was wasting unnecessary money for this unintelligent child, more so she is only a daughter. Lili cried over hearing this remark at the airport before she left. In the plane she told herself she had to be successful in order to let her mum stands tall again for her.

For the first few years while Lili was attending her University studies, she had to take up several part-time employments in order to finance her personal needs and educational fees. She had been working as toilet cleaner, dish washers, waitress, cashier and clerical. She had to work hard to self support herself without disturbing both her parents financially back home. Not only she is intelligent, she is charming and pretty too. There were many male friends who were trying to court her attention all these years. Sorry! Lili being strict and serious herself, she abstained and controlled her emotion very well. Telling herself that love was the least important, except achieving her success in studies. After four years of studying she got her degree, but was still continuing to aim for her final level as a Chartered Adjuster. With all her determination, perseverance, plenty of hard work and concentration, this timid and innocent child of the past, have finally got what she wanted. 

Yes! The little child I admire so much is today a very confident and capable lady who holds the title as A Senior Chartered Adjuster. Yes again! You have proven to those belittled relatives wrong and your success has certainly makes your mother stands tall and be proud of you my dear. Congratulation!!!

Moral of the story - "The road to success comes through hard work, determination, and personal sacrifice"

Think twice before you make a decision....

A saying goes..."You thought you know but actually you don't, coz when you finally know you don't really know would you actually know that you do not know".

See! You have viewed the picture wrongly in the first place.... Right?

False Teeth........

A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. 
The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes. 
The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes. 
The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes.

The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they
asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't
talk for more than 8 minutes. 
The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes. 
But, the third Sunday, he put his wife's' teeth in by mistake and he couldn't shut up...!!!

Wheel of Chance.......

Yesterday was Valentine's Day. I received a Valentine card from little darling. Would like to share it with you guys to see, laugh but please don't tease her. Promise?

That wheel of chance reminded me of my childhood days. When I was a little kid, those bicycle ice cream sellers carried a wheel of chance behind their ice cream boxes. For a five cent, we were allowed to spin the wheel once. All the numbers were One, except one particular side was printed as 9. Any child who could spin to get the number 9, would be given 9 ice creams. I was thrilled once, when I got 9 ice creams for only paying 5 cents.
Sad today! Because The Valentine Wheel of Chance has all the odds against me. It has 11 No Sex over 1 Sex. What a Valentine card I received! Hahaha!!!

Honesty & Empathy

What is honesty & empathy?
In Shanghai a taxi driver cheated my grandson for an iPhone while he was trying to run to a nearby shop to change for some loose change to pay for his fare. He was instructed to leave his new hand phone in the cab, when the innocent little child obeyed. A short while when the child returned to pay his fare, the taxi and the driver disappeared, leaving him to cry in pain.
There isn't any honesty and empathy in such a big city in China.
In Kuala Lumpur be careful when you stop for a taxi! Either you ask for the fare first to your destination or insist for the meter to run accordingly before you step into them. Don't ever take that cab if they refused to take the two options as mentioned because upon reaching your destination, you might be charged a fare that would hurt your heart unnecessary.
Reasons.. there is no honesty and empathy here too.
In Singapore where I am on holiday currently is totally different. Though I am a foreigner, all cabs never take me for a ride whenever I am on them. They always used the meters, friendly and took the shortest route to my final destinations.
My personal view... Safest place where honesty and empathy lies.
In Bangkok which claims to be the hottest fun place in South East Asia is beyond my imagination. Recently one of my friend who was on a business trip there had an unbelievable ride on their taxi. Upon reaching his destination, my friend realised that he had forgotten to take his hand phone which was left at the back seat of the cab. While he was trying to shout and yell for the taxi which was fast moving away from him, a motorcycle rider stopped immediately from behind. The rider didn't hesitate to take him along to chase for the taxi in front. After a few traffic lights  ahead, the speedy rider caught up with the taxi and managed to hail him to a stop. My friend got his important hand phone back and both taxi driver and the unknown rider refused to accept any reward. A broad smile and a big thank you were good enough to keep them happy as ever.
Yes! This is what I called as Honesty & Empathy that they have.

Old men still strong

Who say old man cannot make love? Read on.....

Horny 91-year-old pays RM10 to shag 50-year-old 

While most people his age are looking for the perfect yoghurt brand, this 91-year-old widower was caught having sex with a prostitute, whom he paid 20 yuan (RM10).
"I made a mistake. Please don't tell my family about it, I feel so ashamedl," he begged the police as he put on his clothes.
The man named Lin, has been living alone in Liuzhou of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region since his wife died long time ago. He was taking a walk when he bumped into the 50-year-old prostitute.

"I couldn't resist her seduction, so I paid to have sex with her," he told the cops, who released him after giving the grandfather a warning.

Meanwhile, Apple Daily reported that retired dentist Kan Huo Wen, who's known for his affairs with a lot of women, has been summoned to assist investigations into a prostitution ring busted by Taiwanese police, recently.

The 93-year-old was said to be a regular customer of the syndicate controlling dozens of women in vice activities. The racket had used a matchmaking agency as the front to lure single ladies into prostitution.
Kan made headlines when he refused to settle a bill of NT$14,000 (RM1,465) at a high-end restaurant in June 2009. It was reported that he was not happy that the woman he was match made with had ordered all the expensive food like shark fin soup and lobster.
The same month, he was also sued by a woman, who alleged that Kan had failed to pay her NT$20,000 (RM2,900) a month as promised before she agreed to become his mistress.

My flower blooms at 65........

There was an old Chinese saying, "Man's life begins at 41 years old, just like a flower got bloomed!!!" Meaning... At earlier age, they were considered as flower bud, not matured and the fragrance could not be smelled yet. Upon reaching 41, that's when the flower bloomed and the smell of perfume attracted all the bees and ants. At that age, he captured the attention of all surrounding ladies and many women could die in the hand of these 41 aged gentlemen.

Ahem! Sorry to the 41! Today 41 is treated like a child, when they know nothing of life yet. My version.. "Today man's life begins only at 65 years of age, the flower just got bloomed!!!" We understand life better, we are more tolerance, we speak from the heart, we are more forgiving, we are kind and loving, and we could give all the time to the deserving one. At our age, we attract more lady admirers than before. The ladies won't die in our hand, but rather we melt their heart and their souls. 

Thanks God! My flower just got bloomed.

Well said... “Love is a peaceful feeling, like a flower hugging a butterfly.

Giver and non giver................

Over a chat with Professor Hamid, I learned these two meaningful quotations from him. He said our world has two types of people... "One that always thinks how to give more to others, while the second thinks how to give lesser."

Is true! The first type enjoys giving all the time to others, he is happier, a very likeable person and is definitely a forgiving person as well.. The second type hates to give, selfish, unforgiving, cunning and is normally an unpopular person. Which type are you readers?

50th High School Reunion

He was a widower and she a widow.
They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the last 20 years without fail.

This 50th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.

They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high.
The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.

Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes,..... yes I will!"

The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.

Did she say “Yes” or did she say “No?”
He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous
evening, but his mind was blank.

He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation
he picked up the phone and called her.

First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening.
As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me,
did you say “Yes” or did you say “No?”

"Why you silly man I said, ‘Yes. Yes I will.’ And I meant it with all my heart."

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!”

Moral of the story: When we are ageing, this can happen to us.

Flat stomach....

A Sunday naughty joke......

A little boy walks into his parents' room to see his mom on top of his dad bouncing up and down.
The mom sees her son and quickly dismounts, worried about what her son has seen.
She dresses quickly and goes to find him.. 
The son sees his mom and asks, 'What were you and Dad doing?' 
The mother replies, 'Well, you know your dad has a big tummy and sometimes I have to get on top of it and help flatten it..' 
'You are wasting your time,' said the boy. 
'Why is that?' the mom asked puzzled. 
'Well when you go shopping the lady next door comes over and gets on her knees and blows it right back up again!!

Life is like a growing tree....

This is my third posting on this title which has a lot to tell about life. My earlier postings were in June 03 2007 and April 14 2008. I am sure, many of my readers have not read it yet.

Life is like a growing tree. The deeper its root, the stronger it will remain. Most Malaysian trees are not deeply rooted because we have plenty of rainfall to cater its water retention. They look green and elegant from the outside but if a huge storm arises, these trees would also be rooted quite easily. Not like countries where rainfall is scarce, their trees grow deeper and wider. Their leaves may not be as green as ours but they can withstand even a hurricane storm.

Growing up is like a growing tree. Our youths of today are given too much of pampering. They have not seen the suffering of the yesteryear. They have not eaten the bitter taste nor they have gone through any hardship. Comfort and luxuries are always available right at their doors. Parents would be too happy to chauffeur them in and out. Perhaps they don't even need to think when their minds are so dependable on their computers and games. They would never have a chance to grow deeper to understand the real truth of living and surviving. Their lives are not rooted. Consequently at the later part of their lives, if they face the uncertainties and the unknowns, they shall be torn apart easily.

Too much water for a growing tree is bad. Similarly too much love and affection for the growing children is treacherous. For these are the facts of life you can't escape.

A poem I like to share; "The realization of Happiness happens only after experience of pain. If we desire to blossom like flower in the garden of life, then we must learn the art of adjusting our life with the Thorns!"

Another wiser Anonymous said...
very wise, and i agree with much of what you said. today i saw a beautiful tree and it got me thinking; life is a tree, the roots is our subconscious; hidden from view but they are the true virtue of who we are. The trunk of the tree is our past and present life; it is there for everyone to see,there might be some scars, but only to show we have adapted and grown past them. The branches is our future; so many paths before us, some bigger and so small but eventually they all lead us to the end. You must ask yourself, when you reach the end, will you be on top of the tree soaking up all the sun has to offer, looking back on the long beautiful life you have lived. Or will you be towards the bottom of the tree, taking the shortest and most unfulfilling path that was laid before you?
