Like any morning, I would pick up my phone and start scrolling down the twitter timeline to catch a glimpse of what happened on the other side of the world. Today however, is no ordinary morning. My tweets are filled with Habemus Papam! An exclamation that a pope has been chosen!
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has been elected by the cardinals electors. His Eminence takes the name Pope Francis after a saint of peace and poverty. The first pope from Latin America. The first Jesuit to become pope.
Habemus Papam! We have a new pope!
Bullies called him pork chop. He took that pain with him and then cooked it into this…
An amazing film by Shane Koyczan who was bullied a lot when he was a kid. He took the pain and made this video.
Another year has passed and the new year is here. Like blooming flowers and humming birds of spring time, I hope that this year will be auspicious and smooth sailing.
Not knowingly I have been working for four years now. Much learned and more to learn. Things I’ve learned in the workplace:
- I am responsible for charting my future, be bold to seek what I want, no one is going to know what I want if I do not speak out for myself.
- Do not pull the plank away after using it as a bridge. I am grateful for the help others gave me, maintaining harmony and relationship with others is important as I may never know when we will cross path again.
- Never be afraid to try new or challenging tasks. I may be young and inexperience, I may fail while carrying out the tasks but these are part of the learning process I have to go through to be a better engineer.
Tau fu fah is a kind of desert, made of soy, where you can find them everywhere from pasar malam to desert stalls. Its look though simple, the preparation behind it however is not. From grinding of the soil bean to cooking the soy paste until tender soft before one can savour the delicacy.
I would like to take this time to wish all of you a Happy Chinese New Year and a prosperous year ahead!
Look back on a great life. Look forward to an even greater one.
Saw this on the window of one of the shophouses in Ipoh. Creative at its best and meaningful. It is written in Chinese with English translation.
施比受更有福。 It is more blessed to give than to receive.
