Buddha Jump Over the Wall.....

Went over the moon to have this dish cooked and prepared.... not by me though... by a private home cooking chef. Well, he did a good job to prepared this "Buddha Jump over the Wall" dish. Funny name but well, it actually consists of 3 dishes. First, the whole pot of double boiled soup includes ingredients such as...
1. Ginseng
2. Dry scallop
3. Sea Cucumber
4. Pig leg's Nerves/ Muscles.... I think!
5. Black chicken... suppose to be very good for health!
6. Turtle
7. Shark's stomach
8. Shark's fin
9. Chinese herbs
Mainly there are 8 main ingredients which is good for health... and quite heaty food as well.
We all felt our body tempreture heat up after drinking the soup.
This double boiled dish are being cooked for at least 4 hours. All pure ingredients... as I say We all went over the moon...........LOL.

Well I took a pict with the chef..... quite an eccentric person I would say, we had a wonderful evening then, and ate some fish, vege and dessert too. Interesting meal I would say. :)

The World needs LOVE...

Every now and then I observe all the living beings in this world and came to realise that we all need LOVE. The world is lacking Love......

There are less people showing and showering Love and more and more people becoming greed, angry, stressed and envy of other people. Where is the Love? Is Money more powerful than love? There are more people suffering these days..... they can be rich or poor no matter, as Love is given not take.

Even kids these days are not as cheerful and gay as before. In the olden days, people are more relax and contented in thier lives. They see the world has a future. They view their lives differently. Now, our world has better technology, our kids are brighter, we have modern houses, but why our lives are not as rich as before? The poor and the rich are all suffereing from Lack of Love! Is it that our world is not a better place like it use to be? Is the world going to end? Are we still preaching for the world's end or are we making it a better place?

Are we destroying our lives, or are we enhancing it?

Are we complaining and blaming or are we lending a helping hand?

Where are our principles of live and order?

Many people are thinking that as long as I manage to live happily then I would not care about the world, as long as everything else works orderly then it will be fine. Well, personally I feel that is a selfish thought. Happiness is not forever, if the people around me are happy I will feel happy too. If they felt being loved, I will be happy too for them. Love is given, not take.

Mother's love is natural, beyond mother's love then that's something we should share.

I vow that I will do my part in this world stage. I will not hide behind doors and do nothing to share this love to the world. I'll play a small tiny role in this world stage and contribute some Love to this world and make it a better place. I've learn that complaining and blaming has no solutions. People knows very well to complain but never help to solve, I will stop complain and start to lend a helping hand. To be able to give is a blessing.

Why am I sunddenly so inspired? I have recently watch a movie 夜·明Road To Dawn(2007). It is about the brief period of time when Dr. Sun Yat-sen (孫逸仙) visited Penang. He was a Chinese revolutionary and political leader often referred to as the "father of modern China". His personal plea for financial aid at the Penang Conference held on November 13, 1910 in Malaya, helped launch a major drive for donations across the Malay Peninsula, an effort which helped finance the Second Guangzhou Uprising (also commonly known as the Yellow Flower Mound revolt) in 1911.

In Penang, the Penang Philomatic Union which was founded by Sun in 1908, has embarked on a heritage project to turn its premises at 65 Macalister Road into Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Museum.

His undying wish to help the nation has inspired me to start thinking about others and the whole wide world.

The beauty of Movements!

Was in the middle of the lesson while I thought of exploring the Movements in photos. Well, Sabrina did her best in all the shoots, while me and Joey were flipping and tossing the piece of cloth! I kinda give it a go on a few test shots and this is what I've got! Well it's interesting to explore new stuff and drop all the use of photoshop for a while. This is what I call AAaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrtttttttttttttttttt.................

Act 10- Express your LOVE...

Bedak kid was around today at the mall, he was with his mum shopping for the coming festive season, the mooncake festival just around the corner. I am going to prepare for the festive season too, as it is a custom to send the mooncakes for the elders.
He came up to me and showed me what he had bought, I saw some toys and an electrical lantern. I was teasing him that he couldn't carry a proper lantern and had to play with an elctrical one. LOL.
Well, he call for his mum and he told me, "You know, it is not that I couldn't carry the lantern with a candle inside, it's the concern of my mum that I carry an electrical one!" and then he hugged his mum tightly as to defend his mum's wish.
At that particular moment, I am touched to see how he express his love towards his mother. I then realise we seldom express our love to those that love us, we kind of give it a hint or two. We even did not mention it or express it often to let the other person feel how much we love them. Especially to our parents and love ones, even our siblings are important! We normally exagerate our hate and express less of our love, weird don't you think?
I seldom hug my mother and father....
I seldom hug my grand parents...
I seldom hug my husband /wife...
I seldom hug my kid...
and why is that so?
I hug my doll.
I hug my pet.
I hug my girlfriend /boyfriend.
I hug my friends.
and why is this so?

Act 9- Playground time...........

It was a bright sunny day when I was strolling along the park... and saw Bedak kid with some of his pals and Camry the dog! He was playing at the playground, running around and shouting with his friends.
I walk up to him and say hello, he ask me to join them, I was like no way... too old for that kinda fun. He was looking at me weirdly and said, " You are too old for fun? Are you sure? My mum plays with me all the time! You don't look older than my mum!" Well I said, "Kiddo, I stop running around long ago, coz I tend to sprain myself a lot..."
After a moment, some of the kids actually run and fell in front of me, I was like OUCH! I picked him up and he said thanks and continue running like nobody business. So this was how I used to be but not anymore.... how come?
We are so scared about falling and getting ourselves into trouble and scared of doing lotsa things. So these are what the grown ups worry, they tend to think too much until there's no point of having fun anymore. Is this what it is all about.... growing old and become serious?
After the meeting with Bedak kid, I realised that there are so many things in this world for us to do and to live and we have to stop being scared of all things and make measurable precautions for certain things only and not like stop having fun oursleves and being paranoid all the time like stop falling. We cannot be perfect, if one is soo perfect then misfortune will follow.

Skiing Trip!

First ever skiing trip in Korea Skiing Resort. (Well this happens in Dec 2003) Years ago.......
Cold like never before, being tough wearing those rented ski jacket and gloves and the sking gears! Interesting experience but although it's cold like hell out there, but I'm sweating too.
We kinda had a 5-10 minutes lesson on how to use the equipment, pretty fast.... but well I did not fall though as I was going like 5-10 mph......... hah! You know we had to climb up the hill and skiing down was like 5 minutes........... climbing up with those gears is killing! Just an experience only so I kinda enjoying the whole thing without further exploiting the upper hill!
Well after all this......... I was telling everyone that I might try ski boarding too........ and all of them were like " OMG.... you serious? Wait you'll twist your waist and fall into two, maybe end up fracture or something like that! " My goodness, see how supportive everyone are to me these days! Do I really look so fragile?
Anyways, I didn't try it, but if I were younger then, I would have tried.... EVERYTHING!
You only live once, and your guts get lesser when you grow older........ too bad, I have more concerns now so I have to think twice before doing any stunts!

My Favourite Hollywood Star!

Audrey Hepburn (4 May 1929 - 20 January 1993) was an Anglo-Dutch actress of film and theatre, a fashion icon and humanitarian as well. She has inspired a lot of people during her time and even now.
I have watched some of the movies that she had casted in too.
Broadway production of Gigi (1951)
Roman Holiday (1953) as Princess Ann, the role for which she won an Academy Award.
Sabrina (1954)
Funny Face (1957)
The Children's Hour (1961)
From 1988 until her death in 1993 she served as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador (which is what Angelina Jolie is doing) and was honoured with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work.
She is born a star, as will always be. She'll stay true in the hearts of the people that she's touched even if it's through the movies. In 1999 she was ranked as the third greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.
