Singapore Skyline

"Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past."
- By Henry Ward Beecher

Singapore Sky

Due to its diverse population and immigrant background, Singaporean culture has often been described as a mix of cultures – British, Malay, Chinese, Indian and Peranakan. Foreigners also make up 42% of the population in Singapore and they play an important role in influencing Singaporean culture.

Vote Orchard Central

As Singapore’s tallest vertical mall, Orchard Central is an exciting and inviting spot to do your shopping. Designed such that glass is a central feature throughout, the mall has a breezy and welcoming feel.

Billed as an experience for the stylish shopper, Orchard Central has everything from fashion to food, including Singapore’s first Mediterranean-style marketplace, which also gives it a clear point of difference from other rival malls.

The mall is divided into different clusters, with separate areas for pampering, fashion, active lifestyles and food. From German fashion items to bsc Lingerie and DZ bags, you’ll find it all at Orchard Central. You can also experience alfresco dining in the sky, with restaurants on the seventh and eighth floors, making this a perfect place to grab a bite to eat after a long day of shopping.

Merry Christmas!

Mercure Palm Resort had this theme: Snow White and the seven dwarfs.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the loveliest lady in the land?" The reply was always; "You are, your Majesty," until the dreadful day when she heard it say, "Snow White is the loveliest in the land." The stepmother was furious and, wild with jealousy, began plotting to get rid of her rival. Calling one of her trusty servants, she bribed him with a rich reward to take Snow White into the forest, far away from the Castle. Then, unseen, he was to put her to death. The greedy servant, attracted to the reward, agreed to do this deed, and he led the innocent little girl away. However, when they came to the fatal spot, the man's courage failed him and, leaving Snow White sitting beside a tree, he mumbled an excuse and ran off. Snow White was all alone in the forest.

Can you name the seven dwarfs correctly?

Ikea Daim Cake

The Swedes love Daim cake. It’s made from an almondy biscuit batter that yields a thin cake. The cake is covered with chopped pieces of Daim candy (similar to Heath bars) and milk chocolate. It’s very sweet and rich.

The cakes are found in Ikea’s frozen food department; some stores sell it by the slice in the Cafe, too.

Visit KL

Visitation to KL is always interesting..

This view was taken at Jalan Universiti while I was waiting at the bus stand.

Look at those awesome buildings. One of them is the TMnet building.

KL Central

Stesen Sentral, Malaysia’s largest transit hub, is Kuala Lumpur’s integrated rail transportation centre, offering global connectivity and seamlessly linking all urban and suburban residential, commercial and industrial areas. It is also a direct link to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Putrajaya (the Federal Government Administrative Centre), Cyberjaya and key areas within the Multimedia Super Corridor. Such amazing connectivity has been established through direct access to six rail systems and links to major highways.

Pearl Osyter

The formation of a natural pearl begins when a foreign substance slips into the oyster between the mantle and the shell, which irritate­s the mantle. It's kind of like the oyster getting a splinter. The oyster's natural reaction is to cover up that irritant to protect itself. The man­tle covers the irritant with layers of the same nacre substance that is used to create the shell. This eventually forms a pearl.

It's slippery and wet!

I was in Beijing in 2006. We were brought to a pearl factory where I saw this huge osyter filled with pearls. Guess how many pearls were there..

Unique flower

Captured these unique flowers at Hong Kong International Airport.

And 't is my faith, that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
- William Wordsworth


Of above thousand species of scorpions some twenty
have the poison enough in their venom to affect the humans.
So if unfortunately you got a scorpion sting,
stay cool as the chances of being getting poisoned is only 2%.

Ipoh Sky

I was driving back from town and the view in front of me was nice..You could see views of mountain almost everywhere..

When one door of happiness closes, another opens;
But often we look so long at the closed door that
we do not see the one that has been opened for us.

Oncidium Orchid

My orchid plant has blossomed into beautiful flowers.

The Oncidium Orchid is often referred to as a spray orchid due to its slender laterals with sweeping petals. The Orchid is a durable and fragrant tropical flower. This intense yellow Orchid would add an exotic beauty to any wedding bouquet, table centerpiece or flower arrangement.

You look to the clouds to see crazy things in imagination
Like a zoo for the day dreamer or the wisher.

Outlive Your life by Max Lucado

Outlive Your life by Max Lucado

You Were Made To Make A Difference

Finally, I have finished reading 'Outlive Your Life' by Max Lucado. I was pretty busy the past two Sundays. So last Sunday, I had make sure that I started to read it as much as possible.

Well, about this book. It has 16 chapters. Very systematic and easy to read. I love to read it as it relates lots of stories about different people with different attitudes about life.

I will quote a few lines from this book:

You've been given your life.
Your life will never be lived by anyone else.
In an effort to do good, we can get distracted.
Hopistality opens the door to uncommon community.
To do a good thing is a good thing.
To do good to be seen is not.
Categorizing others creates distance and gives us a convenient exit strategy for avoiding involvement.

But I love this phrase the most:

None of us can help everyone. but all of us can help someone. And when we help them, we serve Jesus.

This book was well written and should be read by anyone at all. It gives us the inspiration about life and thus find happiness in whatever we do.

Towards the end of the book, there are questions for discussion and ideas for actions which I find very appropriate and relevent to our lives.

I would recommend this book to everyone who love life.
