Look alike

It's scary how some acquaintance or shopkeepers often mistaken you for someone else because they find that you and the other person look alike. For the past few days, I have had 3 people mistaken me for, OF ALL PEOPLE, Anti-Ringgit! I mean, if they mistaken me for Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp, I can still sleep but to think that anti-ringgit and I are somewhat related is giving me nightmares. Of all people! Come onnnn! I feel so embarrass!

Just today, I went to Optic Cinta, an optometry shop, and the owner stared at me and said "wow.. you have a belly already. Did you start drinking beer?". I answered, "No wor, I am always, um, big size." He was puzzled. Then it dawned onto him. He said "Ohh.. I thought you were the other guy.. he's your brother ah?" I knew who he's talking about and quickly replied, "He's so yong sui.. how do we even look alike?". We both laughed out loud.

Last week, in the lift, this guy from Accounts Receivables asked if I still travel like mad and I told him he has mistaken me for Anti Ringgit! He smacked his head and said oh ya.. you are right! I was thinking about AR.

I am like... DUHHHH! How can you mistaken Andy Lau with Anti Ringgit?

And lastly, the Uncle who owns a yee mee stall in Restauran Yong Leng asked if we were brothers! I told him I have more hair than him.

I don't know.. do I look like AR? Comment please!

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…
