Happy Friendship Day “Friend”

“Friend”, who introduced the word to us? When do we learn the meaning of this word? How do we know “the one” is our friend? When do we start to address them as a friend? Do we know the real meaning of friendship? How long it stays with us? Do we still bother about the one we used to call as a “friend”?

How long a friend can stay as a friend? How long the friendship stays as friendship before it’s disappear and fade away leaving no traces.

I’m sure we have come across a lot of people in our life. Only 10% out of them become our friend. Yet, we only allowed few of them to come close to us.

Now my question is, how long does the friendship last longer?

Remember, friendship is like a tree. You need to take care and nurture it with water and fertilizer to keep it healthy and grow. If you have stopped nurturing, it will die eventually before you realised it.

NOW, ASK YOURSELF. How many of you are taking that concise care to nurture your friendship? Does it make it to your priority list? If it is not, I tell you what, there is no point of having this friendship because it will die anyway. Not now, but one day before you realise it, it will be gone far away and you can’t even trace any memory of it.

SO, if you are gifted with few good friends, learn to appreciate them. Make time to nurture your friendship so that you can always sail in the FRIEND-ship while living your very own life.

Trust me; this is only possible if they are in your priority list. I know mine; I’m working hard to be in priority list. If I can’t make it, I know I died trying.

#HappyFathersDay

A special day dedicated to all fathers in this world. To celebrate all the hard working husband and fathers who choose to scarify their life.

Somehow, I couldn’t remember this day. That might be because I never really know how a father’s love would be. I’m more into mom.

My parent got separated when I was 13 years old. Even before, their relationship is not as great as expected. We never had a family day. We never dine together. We never really had family outing. I can tell you what would be the exact suffer of a family if they do not have a good lead.

I had no trust on men until I come across some amazing men in my life. They have changed my entire perception of a man. They showed me how a man and a father should be. I had utmost respect for the sacrifices they did for the family.  I salute their dedication to work hard to put the best food on the table.

At times, it’s sad to see when their children are not seeing what I see in this man. Every father is deserved to be respected.

A father is not less equal then a mother. I can guarantee that.

A recent living example of father is Mr Thanigasalam, a father of Malaysia’s first Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA) fighter Agilan Thani.

Again, happy father’s day to all fathers.

Good Bye Brother Nhaveen & Zulfarhan

Tears flowed down uncontrollably;

Heart gets heavier than before;

Smile disappeared unknowingly;

Surrounded with sorrows;

Unimaginable pain;

Speechless mouth;

Unfair treatment;

Gone too soon;

Good bye brother;

#RIPNhaveen  #RIPZulfarhan Osman Zulkarnain

I’m sure we will be surprised if government of Malaysia reveal the static of assaulted, bullied, homicide, murdered and accidents cases in Malaysia.

Don’t you think we are losing too many precious lives for totally disgusted reasons? Who is going to take responsibility for this?

Yeah government, at least think how are you going to collect your taxes (seems like that’s the main source of your income, “ZIPPED” on your creative way to tax Malaysians) if the population is keep decreasing.

I am so worried about our future.  Something is terribly wrong. We had to do something; what would that be? I don’t know.

I am just worried “DOT”

Find out what happened to 19 years old school boy here & 21 years old navy cadet student here.

OK, this is what I am talking about. My instinct is right.

PRINCIPAL CAUSES OF DEATH

Ischemic heart diseases or heart diseases remains as a principal cause of death for the last ten years, from 2005 to 2014.

Slower rate of population growth, in fact average population decreased by 0.05% p/year.

What #5amClub Did to Me?

Image-20170601_225850[1]I know everyone is struggling on this. We tried, tried hard. Somehow it doesn’t work. It’s easy to read than to do. It does require high level of commitment.

Recently, I have been falling asleep to early than usual. I used be an owl that sleeps around 3am. My morning fills with disasters. When I rush, I have tendency to make mistakes. I have well known for being stranded for hours for locking myself inside simply because I forgot the key.

It is a miracle, how I able to hit my bed early and managed to wake up at 4am. This is feeling amazing. Things look different now. This feeling that makes me to think that I have all the time in the world to do my own things before I pack my things to work for someone else.

I am glad; I am walking and not running to get my car. I am glad; I am able to enjoy the freshness of the morning. I am happy; I can play my favourite R&B playlist and have my jamming session. I am feeling fantastic to be able to have these energy boosters.

It is cool that I have plenty of time to dress up and put some make up to pull so called a professional look. To be precise, I have enough time to blend my eye shadows and to perfect the eyeliner and fix the ruined nail colour. Trust me, the imperfection of your eye shadow and/or eye liner is enough to degrade your competency in the eye of social world. I would choose not to wear them rather than to look silly in that way.

I over enjoyed that 15 minutes of chanting, meditation and prayers of spiritual journey that makes my morning extra special.

Importantly, I have time to fill up my tummy so that it does not crack my head exactly at 10am. Trust me, it can drive you crazy.

This is what #5amClub had done to me. It had brightened up my morning. I hope all of you could do the same. What is your secret of motivation to wake up early?

Quitting Is the New Future

IMG_20170531_212708[1]I’m in the process of quitting;

Quitting the bad habits;

Quitting the procrastination;

Quitting from slack friendships;

Quitting from wasting time;

Quitting the overspending;

Quitting the excess thinking;

Quitting from being bored;

Quitting from not cooking;

Quitting from oversleeping;

Quitting from having extra fat;

Quitting from “Nasi Lemak”;

Quitting from being night owl;

&

Quitting my office job.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay2017

<Post Dated>

Image-20170527_184844.jpg

(28 March 2017) “International Womens Day”, what a wonderful day to celebrate.  Sadly, for past three years I can only relate this date to #MH370 & #MH17. Since then, I have dedicated this day to the 297 lost souls and refused to celebrate it. I am still to be able to recall what exactly I was doing when the Boeing is missing from radar.

Note:  The three years of search mission of #MH370 is officially stopped this month. No one knows what happened to that beautiful Boeing and 297 souls she carried within.

By the way, let’s come back to the story. This year I found a very good reason to celebrate this day. Thanks to this Mr M.

On this day, I got a Facebook friend request from this Mr M who is happen to be my ex-CEO of the company. Ok, let me said it again, he is ex-CEO. Yes man, you heard it right. He is a powerful guy who is intellectual to be humble and smart. (I know you are so excited to know who this Mr M, well keep reading…)

Frankly, it takes a lot of respect for someone like him to send a friend request to nobody like me. Immediately, I approved the request and drop him a message to tell him how humble and honoured I am to get a friend request from him.

To my surprise, he responded my message instantly. We shared a few texted messages. He addressed me by my name. I am so amazed to get to know he still remembers me. It is been long years. (FYI, I am using nickname in Facebook )

To describe my joy, I was flying high and screaming loud in silent. I am nobody for him to remember my name, to send a friend request and to even chat. I must have done something good to get paid in this manner. I humbly took this as a compliment.

I do still remember. Long ago, one of my working colleague blogged about the auto birthday message she got from him. Come on, it is an auto message setup into system to send e-birthday message to all company staff with his signature. I was like “what is so great about it to be happily blog about it”? Stop faking for God’s sake.

I evoke an old happening. One of my ex- working colleagues got an e-birthday wishes which is preset by him. (Btw,it could be his PA). She gets so excited until she bragged about it in her blog.  I was like, “come on, you and me know the truth behind it”. I was just recalling. That’s it.

Anyway, I am deeply, truly honoured and humble for this. Thank you Mr M. I would like to be as humble as you are.

I can sleep well tonight.

*Mr M is the most desirable guy Mr Micheal Lai, ex-CEO of P1.

Happy #InternationWomensDay2017 everyone.
