Ever felt that way about life choices and happenings in choosing a partner or a career, or even friends?
Looking positively at life!
Kejayaan yang luar biasa …
Ingat bahawa kadang-kadang tidak mendapat apa yang anda mahukan, adalah kejayaan yang luar biasa! - Dalai Lama "Apabila satu pintu ditutup, pintu lain terbuka; tetapi kita sering kelihatan begitu lama dan sangat menyesal di pintu tertutup sehingga kita tidak melihat pintu yang telah dibuka untuk kita. - Alexander Graham Bell Begitu juga, "untuk sampai ke pelabuhan, kita harus berlayar, tidak mengikat di pelabuhan, tidak melayang." Franklin Roosevelt, 1882-1945 Pernah merasa seperti itu mengenai pilihan hidup dan kejadian dalam memilih pasangan atau kerjaya, atau bahkan rakan?
Melihat kehidupan secara positif!
请记住，有时候没能得到想要的东西，真是好运！ – 达赖喇嘛
“一扇门关上，另一扇门打开；但是我们常常对关闭的门望而却步，以至于很遗憾，以至于看不到向我们敞开的那扇门。 ” –亚历山大·格雷厄姆·贝尔（Alexander Graham Bell）
I put a lot of effort into drawing cartoon for this video post. Then…
“Hmm, so many are viewing my video on “Fitting mental chips…” The traffic seems to be increasing of late!” Then I stumbled upon a few bloggers who had been sharing my posts on other social media, no wonder!
Tourists fly thousands of kilometers to see exotic places. The pristine corners of Port Dickson are ignored. We have them all to ourselves. We are not complaining, but feel it’s ironic. – Co-author Toh HL
Travelling does not have to be expensive if one cares to appreciate the treasures around and near us!
Soak one’s self in the serenity of nature’s beauty, sounds of rhythmic rolling of waves, and the distant cries of birds in the forest! – Chen S.P. @ TPTan
This is a poem (Haiku), about baby goats on bottle milk feeding.
“A newborn has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.” -Dr. Grantly Dick-Read
There must be reasons why we men are so hipped on breasts as if we’d all been weaned too soon. ~Gunter Grass
How high is one’s self-esteem?/ 一个人的自尊有多高？/ 中文和马来语)
Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world on your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgments of others. ― Oprah Winfrey
How high is one’s self-esteem? Here are some examples of young people with high confidence and self-esteem. What others think does not matter!
Kavievanan and his masala tea business [see above] It was sensational news when jobless graduate engineer, Kavievanan Subramaniam, 23, took to the road on bicycle to sell masala tea. He becomes an instant businessman, his own boss! Mr. Kavievanan became a role model for many young people to emulate, especially during this trying COVID-19 period. This is an example of a person with high self-esteem. Never mind what others think. As long as he is making an honest living! Congratulations!
Michael Tee and his bagful of goodies! “Michael lugged a bagful of calculators, pens, and toys. He went from table to table at the restaurants.” “Why can’t you just sit at home and wait for your A-level result?” “I enjoyed doing this. Many aunties bought from me. They must have pitied me!” Michael grinned cheekily. He flopped onto his bed and was soon fast asleep! So high was his self-esteem then. He ignored what others think about him selling items table to table openly. That was quite an experience while waiting his result and entry to tertiary education!
Tommy Lam, his free chemistry book, and a washing machine Tommy approached the stationary shopkeeper. “If I buy thirty books from you, can I get one free?” And he did [RM400 per book]! Next he bought a washing machine and shared the price with other course mates who stayed in the same house they rented. When they graduated from that university, the machine was sold to the next lot of housemates! Good self-esteem, very enterprising, too!

My nurse friends and I had our fair share of rejections when looking for a babysitter in the city.
“When you go to do night shifts, who will look after your baby? Me?”
“No way! The last nurse I worked for was a ‘sterility freak’! I had to boil the milk bottles. I must pick up the bottles and teats with chopsticks… cannot touch the milk bottle teat with my bare hands!… You find someone else!”*************************************
“The nurse is temporarily the consciousness of the unconscious, the love of life of the suicidal, the leg of the amputee, the eyes of the newly blind, a means of locomotion for the newborn, knowledge and confidence for the young mother, a voice for those too weak to speak, and so on.”–Virginia Henderson, RN
