Teary Eyed

Today is the last day of work for a fellow colleague. She's quitting the company to start a new life in America. It was a teary occassion. She couldn't stop crying. Makes me think - you know, she's only 2 years in this company and she's already teary eyed? What about old fuck like me? Will I be teary eyed? Why are people crying like their mother died when leaving a company? Is it the because they missed the people they work with? Or is it the company? I would like to think that they missed the people and I should feel good that my team member miss the team here. Which means that we must have done something right to garner such honour.

  1. Dude, I had this 'teary eyed' experience or I shall said 'honor' to cry during my farewell given by my own department. Had many many lunches /dinners with various groups - each groups gave me different taste. Well, for me, it was a fraction of my precious life leh. Back then, I didn't clock in 9 - 5 aje, sometimes weekend and odd hours, all this add up for 6 years = quite a big part of my life. It's sentimental, many ups and downs, good and bad moments, hate & love situations - they were all learning curves - been thru, walked thru, tasted, I was mould into where I am today (to a certain extent), met many wonderful people along the way - all remain as sweet memories forever in my mind and photos :)

    Just today, when I walked into your new office, the similar office look, met the ex-colleagues - already nostalgia.....Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah

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.

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

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 with just an additional RM10/month! Now, my super reliable router is connected to fast, fast internet! …

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…
