helplessly the image

haunts you

nothing breaks your heart

than to see a grown man cry

over the loss of a loved one

the apple of his eye

to make you realize

the filmsy thread of life

on which hangs

his hopes and dreams

trying not to see too far

in the distance

fearful of what news

may be thrown at you

around the next bend

next minute, next hour

next month, next year

while you live

while they live their lives

shakespeare should have said

frailty, thy name is human.

Random thoughts... again.

Face it.  Only a very rare few live by those God given rules.  In fact, since Adam.  He's supposedly the reason for all our current sufferings.  I may be Buddhist, but I've read stories about him and all those excuses.  And he blamed the woman too.  Precisely what our MPs did all the time when they talked about rapes, sexual harassments and leaks in their parliament.  I say ‘their’ because those mudheads acted as if the parliament belonged to them.  Anyway, that’s before March 8, 2008.  Now that they’ve lost their 2/3rd majority, maybe they’ll behave better.  Besides they’ll be having the close circuit camera watching and recording their every action and word.  Let’s see if anybody’s stupid enough to go bananas again.

But then, there still are rules.  And if you don't want to live by any of them at all, please get up, desert your family and go live in the jungle (as if you can find a real jungle nowadays).  If you're as tough as you think you are, you'll survive. 

If not, and you still want to give civilization another chance, be nice and live by some of the rules.  I mean some.  You can't survive either if you want to live by all the rules.  After all they're all man made.  That's right, man.  Mostly one-sided, right?  And if men can't really follow all of them what do you expect of women?

We all need a practical balance to live and survive with the rest of the two-legged species and you can't have it all without giving some of it back.  In fact, you'll have to give it all back when your time's up.  That's why some people like King Tut and Shi Huang Ti, who thought they had it all, refused to go.  So they tried to find ways to live forever.  Some people are still trying to live forever.  At least they behave like they do, especially those who sit in high places.

If you believe in re-incarnation, you'll still come back as a totally new setup.  If from the Karmic point of view, you try not to behave like a pig for fear that you'll come back as Porky, or not mistreating your maid otherwise you'll turn up as a maid working for a witch next time around, then perhaps you'd better behave now.  Otherwise I think it's a waste of time thinking about this aspect.  For one thing, if you can't remember anything from your past lives.  So what's the point of believing in this thing? 

Anyway they'll juggle all your atoms and even revise your DNA.  By the time your brain is fully developed and you realized yourself as yourself, you'll only be aware of your current conditions.  Your memory?  Forget it.  That hard disk's a brand new one to you.  They don't recycle Hdds.  Totally new format.

Ok, back to the rules thingy.  There are of course some rules where human lives are concerned you must follow to the letter.  And there are others your can ignore and they can close one eye.  But you’ve got to know the difference.  Just follow conscience.  If got law, just follow law, ok?  Otherwise if got caught, get good lawyer...

Surprisingly Efficient

This leaking water connection to our 10 units was replaced within 24 hours.  I noticed a tiny stream of water squirting out on Tuesday morning.  I made a mental note to call them, but I forgot.  Wednesday morning, it was gushing.  They came and wrap a rubber patch on the hole, but water gushed out from another hole.  Yesterday, they came and replaced the whole pipe.

Surprisingly fast action, I must say.

Syabas JBA.

funny fact

got this funny fact from here: http://cock-a-doodle.blogspot.com/


To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine... and those who don't.

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in faeces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health.

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service.

Is my show over?

Is my show over?

I asked my mind what's in my heart?

It rambled round and around

Without giving me a coherent answer

I asked my friend what am I doing wrong?

He told me his own life story instead

So I'm stuck

Still in the mud

Of my very own existence

Meandering through a life

I thought was full of meaning then

Blessed with all that I wanted

Yet I'm now uncertain

With the curtain being slowly unwound

I'm standing right below

Not knowing whether I shall step

Forward or back

Wondering why the audience

No longer exists

Hypocrisy and hypocrites are everywhere
This is the world we are living in?
Where all the good people gone?

What is said, is not meant, and what is meant is not done
Smile for the sake of smiling, shake hands for the sake of shaking them
Nothing comes from the heart and soul.

This is the world we are living in
We say culture is important, we need to uphold them
At the same time, we are the one who breaks them, and use it where it suits us only

We are of human race,
Homo sapiens
, no doubt about that
Religion, ethnicity, caste and creed, now there is a doubt
Sense of belonging, to a group is most important that anything else in the world

Who do we belong to? What we belong to? Why?
Does it matter, if I'm a Jewish, and marry a Muslim?
Doest it matter, if I'm a Christian and converts to Buddhism?

Why it matters to many, and why it does not matter to some?
Why some say, they don't have to belong to this group, and still live a good life?
The other says that this is what we are, and we should not change this!

What we are changing here? Is it the basic essence of ourselves that we are changing?
Are we changing a way of life or simply going out of this group, to live our own life?
Would this change, changes the balance of the universe forever?

Why the fear, my dear hypocrites of the world?
Have you not changed silently before, and then coming back to re-join?
Even being in the group, you still do not uphold the principles and philosophy of it.

Superficial, the outer layer, that's what matters
Inner core, is not something that to be seen outside, and this can be forgotten
This is what happening, and this is what perceives to be important

We are unique, and yet we are same in many different ways
We force everyone else to believe, in what we believe in.
We believe that we need to bring back those who sway from this way

It is noble on how we save each other
How noble it can be if what we do, is actually destroying some one else's happiness
We continue to do this, thinking we are saving them

What we are saving here?
Are we saving ourselves, as by not saving the "drifters" we will be damned?
Damnation of the self that is the greatest fear

What is there to fear?
We are made of flesh and blood bearing the soul that operates the body with our mind
Then where are all this religion, race, caste and creed here?

A way of life, this is how it all started
A guide for the people, to live in peace and harmony in this universe
What this has become now? Wage War to uphold this?

Hypocrites of the world!
Stop this lie and deceit in the name of religion, ethnicity, caste and creed
Don't you see what this is doing to us, the human soul?

We are becoming soulless creatures, driven by this hypocrisy
We are becoming animals with religion, and culture
Why we are lying to ourselves and others?
