Mid July

Looking for a Chinese Hymn, when I typed 'I want to be free' and I got this song from Elvis Presley. I got caught with the rhythm and song emotion, been repeating the song for 30min.

There's no joy in my heart,
only sorrow
And I'm sad
as a man can be
I sit alone in the darkness
of my lonely room
And this room
is a prison to me

I look at window
and what to I see
I see a bird
way up in the tree
I want to be free free
Free - ee - ee - ee
I want to be free
like the bird in the tree

Came across this news when I browsed Facebook 'Malaysian Shares Heartbreaking Post About Friend Who Just Committed Suicide'

Something for me to ponder. What is environment we would like to create and prepare for our children so they can be supported to be at least, know the meaning of living and strike for their best in life? The attitude and behaviour that we as parents to demonstrate to our children, so that children can be inspired to treasure the every breath in their lives with all goodness and up&downs come towards them.

I told laogong 'We must continue to our daily devotion, teach our children and guide them with God's words and wisdom'. It is not easy to raise a godly child in this 21st century when information and influences come limitless to help and to ruin children future. When the truth is no longer believed by people, when what can be seen has confused us, parents need to have the wisdom to guide children what is right and what is wrong.

In the century like this, in the busy time like this, most of the time, we neglect the time to share with our children our belief.

Bible tells us, when all will pass away, your wealth your position your title, but God's truth will never pass away.

We are to pass on our belief from 1 generation to another generation. It can be good one or not so good one. So we shall seek wisdom from God, show us the way to be a wise parents so that we know what to teach our children, what would be the legacy to leave to our children so they won't misleading in life, at least, they should be responsible to their own lives.

We won't be able to be with our children all the time. Before they are indecent, we shall tell them, what else we can give it to our children except the God who is our provider, protection and comforter.

As what the author of the sharing,
"Let’s just live fully and deeply while the brief candle lasted, okay?”

Came across this..

This is way of my gals eating sandwiches that irritates me. They always give me a 'who cares' smile and continue eating in the way they like..

This morning I told children to be innovative and creative. They been challenging me on 'my friend is having xxx, why can't I?' 'My classmates are doing in this way, why only I cannot?' When everyone is doing in the same way, how we can be the outstanding?

So today in-car topic is on, Thomas Edison's creation of light bulb, now everyone can fly with the metal bird, conveyor belt was coming from a lazy man... The boy said on the 16 years old boy found the long search Maya city. Yes, we can be lazy, we can complain, at the same time we need to come out with solution. Idea generation needed to initiative new creation.

For months I don't send children to school in the morning. Today I am back to the school, and the journey to school. Got back the quality talk moment with children :)

I miss to eat durian at this moment..

Try Everything

I messed up tonight, I lost another fight
I still mess up but I'll just start again
I keep falling down, I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what's next

Birds don't just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won't give up, no I won't give in
'Til I reach the end and then I'll start again
No I won't leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won't give up, no I won't give in
'Til I reach the end and then I'll start again
No, I won't leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

25 April 2016 can't recall when was my last blog post. Listening to 'try everything' on the move. Watched Zootopia with children last month, last night the boy asked me to play this song.

This song played in the school uniform camp last Saturday. I like the boy's music appreciation, more sensitive towards music compare to layman like me.

Talking about the camp, 8am to 10.30pm. So what we do when the boy is away from house in the beautiful Saturday?

Papa and mama brought the gals for morning session movie - cheaper and less crowd :D

The gal asked for mcD

Getting taller

Zebra mumny and daughter got the free ice cream :p

Phone always on papa >.<

Picked up the boy at 10pm. Just realised that parents could join the performance night since 9pm. The boy didn't tell me because 'my performance gonna be worse, so I don't want you come to see it' @_@ anyway, I brought the boy for roti canai before he falling asleep like little piggy..

Red Wednesday

Today is day10 of cny. We are suppose to wear in red to attend our department dim sum lunch this noon. So I am wearing a orangie red skirt with red heels :)

Good morning. I like it when baby Shyuan mentioned 'today is a new day!' This energised my day. Finding my schedule and steps needed to be reorganised so I can experience my day more meaningful.

Lately, I sleep in late and wake up early to be with my youngest to complete her homework. Both of us been not having quality sleeping hours. This is not right. I want her to manage her time in efficient manner so that I can have mine in effective way too. Guess she is still adjusting herself to be in the 1st class - daily full long list of homework :(

Watched 2 interesting presentation last night, takes about brain cells.

Supposing I know what I should I do next to get my brain functioning healthy.

Happy Wednesday!

11 Feb

Day4 of cny. Laogong and children balik kampung with in law. Am on the way to work. Long holiday makes people lazy to face the reality...

Miss break time with sis - a cup of hot chocolate mint and tomato sauce fish bite. Although sis and I were just back from Seoul, but we seemed not connected due to different daily schedule in this Chinese New Year break. For us who staying together in a same house having difficulty to always stay connected, what about friends who are staying far from us? Feeling guilty for not meeting up friends and relatives.

Trying to do more.. As of now, these are the group photos I got for this cny..

My Tiew family

Thea family

My home sweet home 8 of us

My mama's side tan family

My working partner

My old classmate - a bunch of 37 years old (my boy mentioned that :p)

Having flu.. Keep reminding children not to eat too much of cookies and cold drinks, but only me alone in the house falling in sick @_@

till then, happy Thursday!
Be back to work!

Turn your eyes

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace

Listening to the song, no idea how to subject today post sharing. The above pic - wealthy vs rich make me ponder.

I am not wealthy, so I don't know how the feeling it suppose to be :p.. I would assume, the wealthy person may not be in true happiness, when he is squeezing off some sum of money to give out to who is in need. Or, wealthy person living with price tag - how much for this and that tangible things. Besides, the wealthy person may label 'price' towards invaluable things - helping hands, love and time contribution to their love ones.

Rich people have warm smile on their faces which reflecting naturally from their spiritual satisfaction. The peace and grateful hearts make them satisfying in the state where they are in. The wonderful feeling of seeing other people are at the state where they should be - food for hunger, touch for the helpless, love stream for the thirst..

Reminder for myself - to be someone rich. Would be great, if it is a wealthy rich :P

Today is Friday. Tomorrow starts the 3day long weekend. It is time to spring cleaning the house, touch up the house with RED ^0^ we prepare our house for visitation every year, however, most of the time, we are the one who finish all the mandarin oranges, new year cookies and sweet drinks :D as of now, no plan in taking additional leave for Chinese New Year break.

Few days back my boy writing a passage on - Chinese New Year. I like his closing paragraph, 'we shall let the tradition inherit to our younger generation' at this stage, I am strongly agree children to study in Chinese primary school where Chinese transition and history background taught in the school. Today children are wearing RED to school, they will celebrate monkey new year at school.

Mummy: would you be receiving ang pow today?

Angel: yes. But it might be ang pow packet with rm2 or without money.

Mummy: why are you saying so?

Angel: some teacher will take out the rm2 that given by the school and only giving us the empty packet.

Hmmm.. Corruption at school too? Surprisingly our children are sharing this negativity calmly. If this is the reason why we are OK with corruption? Coz all are acceptable in the young age?

Well, let's everyone to someone who is rich as the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of God glory and grace.

Happy Friday!

About myself

Got the thought flashing in my mind, if I would create a video clip or presentation on - about me, then what would I putting in the video? Coming to my mind is, my family, my hobby, my like.. Should I be happy of, I don't have the list of my career, my specialisation, my dislike.. :)

So how shall the presentation go? Let's start this :p

I am xxx, obviously I am married with 1 husband and 3 children.

I love to read, from motivational and psychological books at my teenager time to non fiction of people story, pictorial way of presentation way at the later day, till now, I read some of my husband business and skillet build up reference book and my children educational comics :p with handheld device, I read inspiring stories and discussion of current happening issues.

A small easy holding bible is in my work bag, quick grab of God'd word is always on the go. Last year, I have 2 additional softcover books in my bag, found myself can finish reading a book more faster in this way. However, with the laptop and books in the bag, body aching is always there with carrying heavy bag..

I like music too, so Spotify and YouTube are the great app to me! At anytime and anywhere I can play the song which is in my mind, which recalling my memory, which giving motivation, or comforting friends and family. Lately, I like to share nice music and songs with my boy, his music appreciation is high, might be he is in music education since he was 4. We discuss the piece of music, we share our feelings.. So there are time I bring the boy to my young age favourite, and the boy sharing with me the latest hits :)

I like to take photos. Then scribble my thought towards the photos. This happens not only with digital camera, which allows you to snap thousands of photos in a single month, but last time I did spend much on buying film roll.

I like to record life. Last time I read about an article, talking about the static moment of the living thing for the particular shooting second - the moment freeze, in death moment.. Very detailed and insight shared for 'the moment' from the article.

The moment become more quick to capture, with portable mobile devices.

You capture the happiness, touching moment in a very second nowadays.

I like to write. Last time I write a lot especially daily quotes in the executive diary book. I did write my sharing in a compiled booklet too. Since now we are in digital world, so the writing are now in blog and Facebook sharing. Anyway, I still use pen or pencil to write, mostly on bible study sharing and Sunday school teaching preparation. When we putting our thought in words, the feeling is more precise and the thought trail is more clearer with insight :)

I love travelling. I like to see how people living. I like to see the mark of history. I like to see how people earn for living. I like to see how people growing their children. I like the feeling of - what's next.

That's me.
