The Sunday b4 Deepavali and Hari Raya.

Well... It's so sad that India Had 4 bombings just before their big celebration, Deepavali. I would just like to have a moment a silence for the people that suffered!
But that is beside why I'm writing this post.
I found this web site called, and wrote the editor a nice little friendly neighbour email asking for a page, for our "World-Famous-In-City-A-1 E'n'E Optics and Hearing Care" (Our family business) on his nice, cozy little web site for Pulau Pangkor. He is actually an mat salleh that we have seen, cycling around town. Hehehe small town. So he is more than happy to have us on board. So you might be seeing our faces in

  • .. watch out for that space~~~

    Well it's madness here in City A1, the little old Fajar is jammed pack with ppl getting their last min Deepavali/Raya shopping done. Imagine a bomb goes off in there.. the whole of City A1 will be in mourning, becoz some how or another everyone is related to everyone! Incest! NOT!!!! you dirty minded ppl! hehhehe

    We are having our Annual Buka Puasa (Breaking of fast) with all our employees tonight at our faithful little Marina Cove. Will take some pictures and load it on tomorrow. So Watch this Space!~~~

    Today Is a Gift!!

    A great note for all to read it will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking... I hope!

    Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service,
    where they had been on vacation.

    Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

    The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

    The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

    As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

    One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could! n't hear the band - he could see it. In his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

    Days and weeks passed.

    One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

    As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

    Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

    The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

    She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."

    There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

    Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

    If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.

    "Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present."
