Mosin

Yesterday I met up with Kimmikanuyi, Monica and Anti-Ringgit in Mosin Restaurant. I don't believe we have gathered like this for a long, long time. Of course I was grilled by Monica about Anne. Of course she's happy for me and will help me pick up a birthday gift for her. Trust Monica to be so helpful. I am sure she will have a good eye for a good gift.

Now, I really do not know what to get for Anne. Is it too early to get an expensive gift? Monica said that will scare her away. She suggested bouquet of flowers which may be nice and all but it has no memories... you know, once the flowers withered and dried. I wanted to get her something special. After all, it is her first birthday with me.

Ideas?

  1. Love should remain in the heart and not by giving objects. Imagine if you are poor and can't afford present, what will you give? A good memory is all you need.

    For me, first candle light dinner is good enough, even mamak as long as it's a romantic ambience and unforgetable!

  2. Dude, send flowers to Annie is a strategy - first of all, most women naturally like flowers, those strongly say tak suka also - I tell u, deep in their hearts - they definitely value the FIRST bonquet of flowers sent by their sweethearts one, the feeling of receiving flowers is very sweet punya lah, sure smiley face (though we know it is not practical - tak last long), but u see, we, ladies can turn it into dried flowers (then can keep long long liow loh) ....Secondly, it is a signal to all her 'admirers' in her office - that she is attached liow, indirectly chase away all her 'mosquitos' mah. Flowers aje tak cukup wor, think harder on the 'gift' lah :P :P

  5. I am still poor lar. If I buy a watch and then later a nice candlelight dinner, I think I can't afford flowers anymore lar. I'm sure Anne understands :D As for the mosquitoes, these bugs can still be chased away when they see her new watch and enquire :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…
