If up to this point in your life, your thinking & doing have not got you anywhere, & you seem so directionless, it’s time to rethink & may I suggest that you ponder over the underlining statements that follow below here.

  • One great lesson I learned from my life . . . there is no market for your emotions, so never advertise your feelings, just show your attitude . . .

  • F – E – A – R   HAS TWO MEANINGS

    1. F – Forget, E – Everything, A – And, R – Run

    2. F – Face, E – Everything, A – And, R – Rise

  • Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

  • When nails grow long, we cut nails not fingers. Similarly when misunderstanding grow up, cut your ego, not your relationship.

  • DO what YOU love. LOVE what YOU do.

  • We still love ourselves even doing many mistakes. Then how can we hate others for their single mistake? Seems strange but true.

  • Relationship never dies a natural death . . . They are murdered by Ego, Attitude and Ignorance.

  • Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, & your attitude when you have everything.

  • LIFE is very complicated. Don’t try to find answers, because when you find answers life changes the questions.

And last but not least . . .

  • HAPPINESS will never come to those who don’t appreciate what they already have . . .

Be happy & content. Life is the sum total of both giving & taking!

LIFE is so full of “Ifs”

Take the “Ifs” out of LIFE

Then LIFE will be right!

Think right

Think bright

Set your thinking to great height!

In the golden years of our lives, we can now look back with such sweet sorrow of the wonderful two years of our lives in Kirkby College where we lived in peace & harmony sealed in friendship & bond of love.

Look at the pictures as they were of the 1950/60’s environment.

Another part of the pictures will be the Kirkby Spirit & bond of friendship that persist till today.

LOL. Just Divorced. But no. That’s my car!”

 There are always problems in life

R.I.P.

Whatever your status, rich or poor

Powerful or meek

Healthy or sick.

Only time that life bears no problem

Is on the day of your horizontal rest

And that rest is eternal!

So let’s live & let live

Living each day to our best

By changing the way we look at things

Amusingly, life does provide its funny side . . .

Every Wife is a “Mistress” for her Husband. “Miss” for one hour & “Stress” for the rest of the 23 hours!

The are 2 times when a Man doesn’t understand a Woman. Before Marriage and After Marriage.

Marriage Is like a Public Toilet.Those waiting outside are desperate to get in & those inside are desperate to come out.

Women are like phones: 
They like to be held, 
talked to and 
touched often. 
But push the wrong button
and you’re disconnected . . .

The Chinese Tradition of Marriage

By P Chong                                                                               Sat. 4 September 2010

The Chinese Character for Double Happiness

There are three events in life that the Chinese really celebrate:

  • marriage celebration
  • the birth of a child (full moon celebration)
  • Spring Festival (Chinese New Year)
  • Birthday celebrations are not a norm, except the landmark ages of 60, 70, 80 & all that . . . Celebration on the negative side will be in the event of “untimely” demise of the dear departed including Qingming Festival (All Souls’Day).

Red is Auspicious

Without order chaos exists. Even mechanical things work on a system, from a simple clock to the planetary system of the universe. If any part of the system should break down, the whole mechanism stops to function.

By the same token, it is true to say of the human society. It can only function properly with a system or order, otherwise chaos will prevail. This is a verified truism as exemplified by the way Chinese society is structured & conducted with particular reference to the question of marriage, which reflects the great importance attached to the concept of the family unit. The way the Chinese address their nation as their “national family” bespeaks the significance of the basic family as its core. Thus the way the individuals conduct themselves can make or break the hierarchy.

There is much to be said about arranged marriages in those days. Whatever your modern misgivings with ideals of love & romance, these marriages did come with problematic packages. The go-in-between and both the in-laws first investigated all details of the young man and lady in respect of compatibility with particular reference to their “animals” of birth, as whether it’s the year of the rat, cow, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat monkey, chicken dog and pig. It’s astrology of an unique kind. The West would refer it as consulting the stars. There is much truth in that the characteristics of the personality do spell out clearly by the animal year of birth. Taking such precautionary steps avoid the pitfalls of marriage.

Talking of surprised or problematic packages in marriages, brings me to mind of a fictional story. It could well be true beyond your wildest imagination . . . it’s so funny, ridiculous & amazingly laughable.

This is seriously Funny . . .

Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation. One of them kept complaining of family problems. Finally, the other man said: “You think you have family problems? Listen to my situation.”

“A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown-up daughter. We got married and got myself a stepdaughter. Later, my father married my stepdaughter. That made my stepdaughter, my stepmother. And my father became my stepson. Also, my wife became mother-in-law of her father-in-law.”

Much later the daughter of my wife, my stepmother, had a son. This boy was my half-brother because he was my father’s son. But he was also the son of my wife’s daughter which made him my wife’s grand-son. That made me the grand-father of my half-brother.”

This was nothing until my wife and I had a son. Now the half-sister of my son, my stepmother, is also the Grandmother. This makes my father, the brother-in-law of my child, whose stepsister is my father’s wife, I am my stepmother’s brother-in-law, my wife is her own child’s aunt, my son is my father’s nephew, and I AM MY OWN GRANDFATHER!”

And you think you have FAMILY PROBLEMS!!!”

Moral: Order prevails, otherwise chaos assails.
