Love Songs


Posted by Hello

When I was wooing Anne, I started sending her a song every 2 or 3 days. Most of the songs I sent were love songs except a couple such as Everytime and Change Of Heart. These two songs were the exceptions because she said she like them. Anyway, for every song I sent, I put in in a iTunes Playlist named Anne's Songs. Once I reach 80 minutes worth of song, I'll burn it into a CD for her. iTunes made that so much easier.

There is a reason for the choice of each song. It usually represent what I feel at that particular day when I decided to send the song. My most difficult challenge was looking for the first song. The first song she received from me must not have too much implication or deep feelings and yet it must convey a message - a message that I am interested in her. Gabrille's Sunshine did that job really well. It goes something like this: "Sunshine through my window, that's what you are...". Then the implication received a notch up the scale. I sent her K-Ci & Jojo's All My Life which proclaimed my gratitude to God to have sent her into my life: "I thank God, that I, that I finally found her."

And just days before I told her, in person, how I felt, REO Speedwagon's Can't Fight This Feeling which goes something like this:

"I can’t fight this feeling any longer
And yet I’m still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show"

did the trick.

She remembered that I sang Man Bai's Kau IhlamKu in karaoke and she said I sang that song really well (cough) and she was impressed. That's how this song made into the Special Playlist.

Debbie Gibson's Two Young Kids, which turned out to be our favourites, imply that we do see a future together and that 50 years later, "...two young kids, will be wishing, they were us."

I sent Anne Cold Song, a small and short poem/song by Jewel, because she caught a cold the other day and this song cheered her up tremendously.

And when she told me she loves me, I gave her Diana Ross' ".. I'm shining like a candle in the dark, when you tell me that you love me."

Am I a "romantis" or what? :D

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…
