Ajahn Chah Rememberance Day - 20th Anniversary Malaysia

Cansurvive Provides Free Workshops With People Living With Cancer

Cansurvive is an NGO that aims to help you get informed, to be a one stop educational and support centre for bridging allopathic and complimentary approaches to wellbeing so that you can make informed decisions about how to best lead your life.

Anne Munro-Kua Transformations facilitates free workshops with people living with cancer, with plans for working with health practitioners. This year I have had the joy of running 4 such workshops and working with a number of individuals to explore ways to be able to "Laugh and relax even though I have cancer". Each time I engage in such sessions, I am humbled and encouraged by the commitment of the people I work with, many of whom now see "cancer as a gift", an opportunity to be empowered and really turn their lives around.

Precious Children’s Home currently houses 32 children ranging from four to 18 years of age. They are housed at two separate homes. The main home has 14 kids aged four to 12 and there are 18 kids aged 13 to 18 in a second home. The children come from various races and backgrounds. They all attend school, from kindergarten to secondary school. These children are mostly orphans from the streets or whose parents are drug addicts, alcoholics, undergoing rehabilitation program or who are in prison.

SHELTER is a registered, voluntary welfare organisation for children and teenagers who have been abandoned, neglected, orphaned or abused. They are guided by the vision to give children at risk the best possible childhood and future by protecting, guiding and healing them, and by building strong communities and loving families.

Kidney Transplant Recipients Feel Grateful For Her Life

When Lim Chu Ee was 10 years old, she suffered a viral fever, which left her weak and unable to lead a normal life. Little did she realise that it would be a life changing experience. Enrolled into a Chinese school, and enjoying her life as a school girl, with many friends and a happy family, it was an earth shattering experience to be informed by her doctor that her kidneys had failed as a result of the illness.

Out of the blue in 1996, her parents received a phone call requesting them to make a trip to KL as a child had died and the parents were willing to donate her kidneys. Lim and her parents made the journey, hoping for good news and they were not disappointed. Lim was one of the lucky recipients and the other kidney went to another school girl, known only to Lim as 'Haslina' They became good friends over the 3 months hospitalized in HKL.

Steve Jobs Passed On

I am saddened :(

Steve Jobs (1955-2011), had passed on on 5 Oct 2011.

Steve was a gift to the world, his life carries many messages. Chief amongst them is that if you come from humble beginning, you worked hard, you struggled, you can make it.

Life is not without compromises and making difficult decisions. Every steps taken are associated with certain risks and costs and passion will be your ultimate business partner.

We must not forget that life is short, so short that we often forgotten that we are vulnerable to many things and illnesses spare no one. On that note, appreciating every moment of our life is important, appreciating every person around us is equally important and appreciating that the next second is of top most importance.

To Steve Jobs, you have always inspired me and in my opinion, you were the greatest marketeer in the world.

We are not personal friend, you are my idol.

May peace be with you.

Bad Investment Choice, IQ Can Be Trained Up!!

Refer to 'Billionaire willing to pay RM100K for young, high IQ and fair ovum donor'

You can train up good IQ, no need to look for it. But it will require time, just like building up your muscle.

IQ is just a state of mind, it is how you think and react.

High EQ people are passionate people, because their thinking are based on feelings.

High IQ people are the opposite.

One way to train up your IQ is to play computer strategy games.

Why ?

Because it will put you into training ground for the following scenario.
  • Forces one to solve a specific problem within a short period of time.
  • Forces one to solve a problem before you get up.
  • Forces one to think about strategies and solutions to problems on the spot.
  • Forces one to think within the scope of the problem.
  • Trains one to stay focus.
  • Trains one to be more patience.
  • Trains one to not to give up until you find a solution
  • Trains one to be innovative (in certain ways).
  • Trains one to think about best practices.
It is just like going to the gym.

Space Shuttle Next Version Unveils

This topic interests me because the universe is really under-explored and still a mystery to common science.

To suggest that extra terrestrials exist in this universe is sometimes an after thought, (at least for now), but no one can say for sure. Perhaps someone knows, like the lord Buddha (some more than 2,500 years ago) or other saints and mysterious people. Buddhism material acknowledges higher terrestrial existence, however the descriptions are limited (as far as I have researched).

According to world famous scientist Dr. Stephen Hawkings, he is not sure why only weirdos have witnessed UFO. But isn't there is something called confidential in the world, especially in the governments ?

To get a picture of how big the universe is ?

Check out this link
  • From planet Earth,
  • the next level up is the solar system.
  • Then 'Solar Interstellar Neighbourhood'
  • Then only 'The Milky way gallaxy'
  • Then 'Local Gallactic Group'
  • Then 'Virgo Supercluster'
  • Then 'Local Superclusters'
  • Then only 'Observable Universe'
Some Buddhism materials suggest that higher terrestrial existence is beyond our solar system. A world is consists of a Star (i.e The Sun) and its surrounding planets.

With today's technology, we can't even reach the Mars which is estimated to be around 54.6 million km from Earth when it is the closest.

The Sun is really just too big to handle already.

This suggests that the human body which is formed from earth, water, fire and air elements is a limitation when it comes to the concept of higher terrestrial.

Therefore, with this new version of space shuttle, it is expected to bring men to Mars by 2021 the earliest. Its first unmanned test flight is expected to be in 2017 from the Kennedy Space Center.

The new rocket, known as the Space Launch System (SLS), is more powerful than the giant Saturn V rockets that launched astronauts to the Moon.

We are still a long way from the Superman concept.

We need to move beyond the Solar system to check things out, please!

Captain America - From Childhood Hero To Hopes

I was borned in 1970(s).

Like many others, I grew up reading comic books such as spiderman, fantastic four and of course Captain America. Captain America was really popular when I was in my primary school, not sure why, I even had a costume of it; I remember.

Now, after 30 years, Hollywood finally made a film out of it and it is played by an actor younger than me.

Captain America; The First Avengers is a great movie, you should go and watch it. It comprises of mixture of drama, love story, fantasy and probably scientific hopes for mankind evolution.

The actors played their roles well, especially Hayley Atwell who plays Peggy Carter; love interest of Captain America.

Chris Evans performs well too, he is able to portray a sickly young man who understands pain and later being transformed into a 'superman' figure who demonstrated the great strength, compassionate and humanity. For some reasons, Evans has that kind of look. I think he is a great actor.

In terms of acting, my favourite is between Tommy Lee Jones (who plays Col. Chester Phillips) and Stanley Tucci (who plays Dr. Abraham Erskine). I think I will pick Tucci for the oscar.

Also, Hugo Weaving plays the villain really well, he is a very talented actor.

For my part, the entertainment values come more from Hayley Atwell. She is an absolute success in this movie; A+++.

This movie tells that love story in the oldies are much better, even though clouded by wars and etc. Love stories then were more pure and happy as contrast to today's complicated humanity.

The one thing I want to stress about is hope. I have a reason to believe that ultimately, all mankind should strive to improve themselves. If you are weak in one area, you should and can always strive to improve on that area. It is the answer to every questions in this human age. And if you mixed it with love, political wars, friendship, science, idealogy and humanity, it is called life.

Fundamentally, it parallels with religions which touch on the reincarnation focusing on the point that what lies ahead is for becoming a more superior beings. From Animal realms to human being realms to heavenly realms and so on and so forth. Means, if you are now a human, you don't really want to become a fish, you prefer to go up with higher intelligence capability. If you are a fish, you would most likely wanted to become a human being. So, the right path is always becoming a stronger and better beings with higher level of consciousness.

Also, I think there is something to cherish that the world has to wait for more than 30 years, in order for Chris Evans to be borned, and to play this role. To me, that is called amazing. Why don't they let me play the role ? You know what I am saying ?

You should watch it. Thumbs Up :D

Can we move on beyond the C.I.M.B ?

Refer to 'Start of Lim’s Malay dilemma'

I am in my 30s now, and I have heard this same old story for over 20 years, perhaps even more than that. It is just same old.

Can we move beyond the C.I.M.B ?

The was a joke that the CIMB Bank was formed by 3 Malaysians, and they go by the name of Chin_a,Ind_iana and Mal_ik.

So, they call the bank as CIM Bank.

On a serious note, Malaysia is still same old.

Lee Was on Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) for five years before he underwent a transplant

Taken from NKF Shared Issue 2 2011 (PP9314/08/2001 (028834)).

Lee was one of the lucky ones when on July 27 1996, his fortunes changes for the better. An American expatriate died of stroke at the age of 56 and the most eligible recipient at the time turned out to be Lee. Lee therefore received a new kidney and with that came a new lease of life for his wife and twin daughters.

NKF Spent RM 81,120.00 From Jan-April 2011 to Provide 100% Subsidy on Dialysis Treatment

Taken from NKF Shared Issue 2 2011 (PP9314/08/2001 (028834)).

Life has not been a bed of roses for LIm as a result of a bad accident in 2007, which injured his kidneys and left him jobless.

There are many patients such as Lim who need help on a daily basis, many lose their jobs when they are on dialysis and without financial assistance it would be impossible for them to afford dialysis while managing their families.

NKF Spent RM 81,120.00 From Jan-April 2011 to Provide 100% Subsidy on Dialysis Treatment for our hard core poor patients.

Sierra Pharaoh Nekhen Gameplay Tips


  1. Use shrines on secluded area. Build shrines for the patron god; Ra.
  2. Do not over built houses, keep population to 1,000 to conserve resources. Build 9x8 housing will be enough to cater for 1,000 population.
  3. Build two temples for the patron god.; Ra.
  4. Build an internal circle to keep necessity services (water, firemen, health) inside by putting a block at the entrance.
  5. Build festival square and perform festival.
  1. Do not over built houses and waste resources.
  2. Try to build a personal mansion later to keep some money.
  3. Perform festival for each god at least once per year, thus every 4 months rotating.
General Tips:
  1. Use roadblock, however, must use it wisely. Roadblock prevents people from traveling out to get jobs.
  2. Palace is the place to keep gold and to provide information about unemployment.
  3. Gold will provide direct income, must harvest as much as possible.

My Comment On Kin says sorry to kindie

Refer to 'Kin says sorry to kindie'

If you care to look around, I would say that in Malaysia, this is just tip of the iceberg.

This reminds me of one of my favourite song;上海滩。
















Or I really want to emphasize that this society needs love and real friendship.

It is timely to say that it is why we need places like Fo Guang Shan and etc which the door must always be left open to all.

I still remember a venerable from Fo Guang Shan said this.


This is very true, we must have the courage to love.

Makna : Life Goes On

Taken from Makna Neoplasia Issues 01/2011

It has been 15 years since the cancer diagnosis. Although her initial doctors could not promise her anything, her determination and strength has allowed her to survive. When she was first diagnosed, her children were very young. Although she never said much, I sensed that she fought her cancer as she was unwilling to miss out the growing years of her children. Due to her determination, my sister not only bought up her three kids, witnessed the marriage of her two children and today is a happy grandmother to her grand-daughter and is hanging on strongly on every thread as to see her youngest daughter who is her precious caregiver to be married off soon. - Shanti Michael (

Ullambana's Origin?

Ullambana lasts from the first to the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar's seventh month. It is also known as the month of the monastics, merits, gratitude, filial piety and blessings. Ullambana's origin dates back to the Buddha's era when Maudgalyayana(目建连) saw his mother suffering in the realm of hungry ghosts with his supernatural power. He tried to provide food to his mother but they were burnt into flames. Maudgalyayana thus sought the Buddha's advice, and was told to make food offerings to the monastics at the end of the rainy retreat and dedicate the merits to his mother. This would relieve not only his mother's suffering, but also the suffering of this parents of seven lifetimes.

Author/physician Shigeaki Hinohara On Longer Life

His diets:

For breakfast I drink coffee, a glass of milk and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it. Olive oil is great for the arteries and keeps my skin healthy. Lunch is milk and a few cookies, or nothing when I am too busy to eat. I never get hungry because I focus on my work. Dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat.

His Schedules:

My schedule book is already full until 2014, with lectures and my usual hospital work. In 2016 I'll have some fun, though: I plan to attend the Tokyo Olympics!

On Materialistic:

Remember: You don't know when your number is up, and you can't take it with you to the next place.

His Advises:
  • There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than 65.
  • Share what you know.
  • To stay healthy, always take the stairs and carry your own stuff.
  • Science alone can't cure or help people

放下究竟怎样 (To Let It Go)?

People always asked me this question.

The answer is very simple, accept, repent and rebuild.

Accept who you are, repent what you have done, rebuild a new self.

However, this is very hard to do, because it conflicts with your current self.

Thus, the alternative methods are:
  • Eat simple food – sacrifice your food desire.
  • Do charity – sacrifice your time, ego and comfort.
  • Live a simple life - do away desires.

By doing these things, you train yourself to let go your wants.
