Every thing seems to be happening in May. First I moved house. This coming weekend will mark my 2nd week in the new place. I thought I would have settled down by then and told a bunch of friends organizing a weekend getaway to a place called Bukit Tinggi that I am able to join them. All of a sudden, moving house and trying to settle down is not an easy task at all. This weekend, the aircond guy will come to install a/c. The contractor, Ah Meng, will be over to do some touch up work. All of a sudden, I can't leave the house for the getaway. I bet many of my friends are not very happy about this. So the deal I am thinking of doing is to do the house work and go to Bukit Tinggi in the evening.

Then, AC is coming back from Singapore. She asked if we could meet up and I could not because of the weekend getaway and of course now the house-work.

C.Woon, another friend from Singapore is visiting with her sister and mother. She's hoping to meet up with the gang here but all of us are going up to Bkt Tinggi.

I have an American guest visiting the our office on Monday. She'll arrive on Saturday and the rest of the team here will be going out with her on Sunday. I feel obligated to join them as she's, after all, our guest, right? But... I can't, because I will have to be in Bukit Tinggi. And these colleagues have already branded me as anti social.

Just a moment ago, MK called and said that he doesn't want to go Bukit Tinggi if I am not around because he and KL don't click and he said he'll be bored to death. So he'll follow me in the evening. That would have thinned the group going up in the morning because if MK don't go, KC won't go.

SO WHY?

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT SATURDAY 15th MAY?

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009. The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!! --- Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours. --- Edit 8 April 2018: Checking my blogger stats, this post is pretty hi

Amazon Alexa in Malaysia - does it work well? A review...

Feels like Christmas in September. Thanks to Doktor Cinta, my friend who live in Australia. Back in July, Amazon Australia had a Prime Day. I joined the trial using my usual Amazon account and ordered an Echo Dot, Echo Plus (the taller one with a built-in hub) and a Kindle Paperwhite, shipping them to a dear friend in Australia. My friend visited Malaysia and brought the Echos with him two weeks ago. You can imagine my thrill to get my hands on Alexa and start using it... in Malaysia. As a side story, sometimes, you can't believe how events are aligned properly to prepare my place to be a connected home - I bought a superb new mesh network router, eero (by the way, I'd say it's one of my best electronic purchases after an iPhone! It is that good), which acts as a strong WiFi backbone as it blanket my double storey house with a reliable and fast WiFi. Then, maxis launched Fibernation program which let me to upgrade my internet from 6 Mbps (pathetic) to 100 Mbps wit

Why did we choose Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah?

Which school did we transfer Jane to, that's probably what is in your mind? The graphics and the title above would have informed you the name of this school. But why this school? We first heard of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah from a friend. Her 8 and 11 year old daughters are now studying there. Typically, she doesn't really talk much about the school but when probed further, she told us all about the school. There are few things she said which struck me really hard. The first being that the kids and the staff in the school are a happy lot. Yes, even the staff. She said when you go to the school and talked to the teachers, the Headmistress Puan Khoo or even the office staff, you will feel an ambiance of  warmth and politeness from everyone. It's a very pleasant feeling, unlike many schools where the atmosphere is cold. And she also said that the children there, her own two daughters, are always looking forward to school. The second thing she said which also left
