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. --- 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

Who is the official service center for Seiko watches?

The Great Blue; Kinetic Auto Relay 100M I have a 15 year old Seiko watch which I love very much. It's a Great Blue series and kinda one-of-its-kind, because Seiko discontinued it as soon as it was launch. So, there are very limited number of units. The watch I own is a Kinetic Auto Relay which means it is powered by my arm movement. And the nice thing about it is that if I don't use my watch, it hands will not move but the Kinetic capacitor which stores energy (up to 4 years of inactivity) will continue to keep track of the time. When I picked up the watch and shake it a bit, it will wake up and auto adjust to the correct time whether it is AM or PM. But my watch is 15 year old. At that age, the capacitor cannot hold a lot of charges. These days if I left my watch unused for 2 days, the watch stopped keeping time. I need to get the capacitor replaced. But who is the official service center for Seiko? The thing about luxury watches is that if you don't send it to
