Double Journey...

There are two things that are happening in parallel in my life today.

The first one is something I have mentioned a few times in my blog. I am seeking God. I am also seeking a religion to fulfill my spiritual need. I believe that every one of us have certain "life sustaining" needs to fulfill and one of them, believe it or not, is spiritual need. I've been thinking about this for a long, long time and the trip to Egypt had strengthened this belief. I think kimmikanuyi knows what I am talking about, in reference to Egypt. The fact that we were in a region and country where Christianity and Islam started; the fact that the whole country and region built monuments in worship and praise of God, is something that had to be felt by being there. Even the Ancient Egyptians worship one sort of god or another, a proof that spiritual fulfillment is essential to one's life. This feeling is particularly strong in Cairo and especially during Ramahdan where one can see people reading the scriptures at any time of the day in worship. No words can easily describe the feeling. Perhaps Miss Peace or Anti Ringgit felt it to. Perhaps not, since they have never discussed about this before.

The second thing that is happening to my life, in parallel to the above, is that I have finally found Anne and that we have been dating for almost a month. It's funny how we met and the story itself will be a topic for another blog. I'm quite sure it is fated and that it is also His will for I have prayed for her and before I know it, there she is, in person, and she turned out to be a good match for me, so much so that I think I have finally found my rib! (I hope). Speed dial #2 is now occupied :) Now, all is not rosy of course because my lady friend here is a staunch believer of Japanese Buddhism and I was just saying that I am seeking God. Perhaps another test? We have talked about this, of course, and we are both ok. Here's hoping that there will not be any issue at all in this area. Sigh. I'm a pessimist and history has proven that such thing is a stumbling block in my relationship. But the optimist and hopeful in me is keeping my fingers crossed and saying my prayers.

Wish me all the best in both my Life Journeys :)

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.

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.


Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.



And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
