We work hard so that we could...

A hard day at work. On my way back, i was wondering...what for?

Please complete this sentence-

"We work hard so that we could..."

1. Earn more money?

2. Buy bigger house

3. Buy bigger car

4. Tour around the world

5. Enjoy good food?

6. Retire early (for?)

7. Your answer here

Food for thought: I sometime lament that life is unfair. But to think about it, actually Life is Equalitarian- Everyone dies and no one can bring any thing with them.

Spiritual Sunday: Rationalise it Not

When disaster happens, many will try to rationalise it.

Some have quoted an ancient chinese verse that says
great things will often come after great trials.

必先苦其心志 劳其筋骨
饿其体肤 空乏其身

For me personally, I do not understand why the twin asian disasters happen and will not try to rationalise it. Often than not, it is beyond human understanding.
What we can do is to help them by one way or another to rebuild their homeland.

Spiritual Sunday: Keep on Praying

"Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble and keep on praying. Rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn" (Romans 12:12, 15)

I thank God for those whom are rescued from the disasters in SiChuan, China and Myanmar. I rejoice with them (and their family) that they are given another chance at life.

I mourn for those were displaced in the disasters and pray for their families - that they will find comfort, strength and hope.

Please continue to pray with me that the missing people be found and rescued and those who are injured received medical treatment and supplies in time.

Do not underestimate the power of prayers especially when the faithful prays together.

Spiritual Sunday- Delight yourself in the Lord

I have to constantly remind myself NOT to live by the world's standard and temprement
but choose to live a life of daily obedience to the Word of God
Trust in the Lord and do good.
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

What on Google is this?

I was mutitasking: doing my blog hop, opening my gmail and launching my blog at same time. I think these activites generated too many pings and i (my IP address) was 'banned' from all google sites (including my blogspot blog) for almost a full 15 minutes! The message below appeared whenever i tried to visit a blogspot blog. I was horrified! I thought i could not blog again as i could not gain access into my own blog. I thought this ban is forever...i thought...

I regained access to my site when i restarted my computer after 15 minutes but it seems like eternity! I could only surf non-google sites and blogs as most of my blog buddies' blogs are all in blogspot.

Luckily, i have a .com domain of my own ( where i publish all my web traffic related articles in event any thing happen to my blogspot site. And thankfully there are (for now) still lots of non-google sites for me to visit. I can't imagine...

A day without Internet

Finally, i got my internet access back! My modem line was striked by lightning! Got it fixed and got back my virtual life. A day without Internet is simply too...the story goes like this...


There was an article last weekend from my local newspaper suggesting that we live a day without our gadget and internet access. I thought to myself at that moment "Hey, that wasn't too difficult, i can do that".

The came the modem problem and i was left with no Internet Access for a day! Among many other things, I have no communication (email), no outlet for creative expression (blogging) and no source of information (i was supposed to search for holiday information for my family). It was TERRIBLE! I can't imagine A day without Internet.

I thought it was a while ago (ok ok, a few years ago) that the World Wide Web 'intrudes' into our life and we were 'forced' to learn HTML. Now it has become so pervasive(Read:
'to become spread throughout all parts of') in our life that we can't function (fully) without it.

The thought of it was scary! I am sure you have seen sci-fi show showing Machines conquering the world or the Internet-went-wrong story!

I felt helpless at first, not sure what to do because my routine was broken. Slowly, this fear was replaced by a certain revelation that the internet is (after all) man-made.

But the 'silent' was too unsettling, I started substituting one gadget with another, the TV. Finally i decided to go gadget free (at least for a night). I switched off my Mobile phone and the TV and spent 'quality' time with my son. Played toys (toys without battery-if you should ask) and a game of catching with him.

I still decided to retire early that night (hoping that the next day my internet connection will be up).

I survived a day without Internet.
