Time Management

[Martha] had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. —Luke 10:39

I attended a training at work, and one of the topics covered was "Developing a Time Investment Strategy".
Very often, we are more or less preoccupied ourselves with the 'less-important' things in life that we forgot to focus on the BIGGER things - things that are IMPORTANT.
We lose focus easily.
We forgot what is our PRIORITY in life.

From Luke 10:38-42, Mary knew what was important.
All the preparations for Jesus were just secondary stuff. What was more important was spending quality time with him, sitting on His feet.

As I watch Sex and the city last night, I see the connection of today's world and Martha.

Being a new-yorker, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) was too busy preparing for a wedding which the groom was not even prepared for. Thus, that explains that RUNAWAY groom.
In real life, when we are so occupied with the minor things, we often to FORGET the most CORE/BASIC thing that we need.
Carrie forgot the reason they were together. It was LOVE that brought them together.
But the wedding preparation was all about HER, HER, HER and HER.

And all came to a happy ending that they had the most comfortable wedding party - where all her good mates sat on a long table with her, merely having a good meal and fun together (no more ELABORATED weddings at a library with designer dress)

Aw.... that's the sweetest thing.

If you'd like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this application inspired by David Allen's GTD:

You can use it to manage and prioritize your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
A mobile version and iCal are available too.

That's the problem...people spend days preparing for their wedding DAY but forgot to put in effort for their marriage, which explains the high divorce rate nowadays :( It's all about I, Me and Myself...

Shouldnt that how the world work? Everything should be me, myself and my pet dog. Why must it be the other fella sitting across the table with a sweet smile carved on his/her face aiming at me? Hello ah ma, u think love is permanent one izzit? U think Love is Sky Long Earth Nine one ar? Puh-leese lar...those era died long time ago when God created mankind k. Even T-rex are more relationship-oriented than mankind k. I jst dont understand why lar God, why Noah need to build an ark. Just flood the darn planet lar. Then everyone can evolve and be a penguin d ma. See how cute they are? Ang gu gu...

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

 Our lunch spread :)

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
