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.

How to change Twitterrific V6 Theme

Yesterday, my favorite Twitter client, Twitterrific, released V6. I have been using Twitterrific for years and while I sometimes try other clients, I always end up with Twitterrific. So, I am extremely happy to see it still being actively developed.

One of my favorite features of this release is the introduction of new themes. There is one theme I really like. It's called Parakeet and it's almost based on the Solarized Dark colour scheme. However, there is no Solarized Light and so, I was delighted to learn that there is a way to change the theme manually by changing the .plist file.

Twitterrific syncs the theme file to iCloud Drive under the Twitterrific folder. There is a Themes folder and inside it is a Day and Night subfolder. They also nicely included a sample theme file, named Sample.twitterrifictheme. All you have to do is copy the file and drop it to the Day subfolder and magically, Twitterrific client will pick it up. The theme files for all the included 6 themes can b…

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 an impr…
