Maid

I'm on leave today.

On an unrelated news, I read about a Singaporean pouring boiling water
onto her maid's genital and extracting her two front teeth with
pliers. Such cruelty and inhuman act.

Just yesterday, a friend proclaimed that she want to kill her maid.

I believe that maids bring out the worst behaviour out of someone. We
forget our humanity when we have complete power to lord over someone.
My friend is the nicest lady I know and yet her maid could turn her
into a monster.

That is also one of the reasons I'm not using a maid. To save myself
and also to discourage these negative learning by little sen.

  1. Yalor ....I agree with you . Thesedays , everytime I meet our friend, the friend complained about the maid , the topic of conversation between the hubby and wife also the same ....all in all, always mention 'want to kill the maid' ..... those evil thought, statements, if kept repeating on and on, they are in the mind , indeed very unhealthy. I just wish they cancel the deal , take the maid away from their lives....

  2. In the beginning, communication is very important. Just like how you choose your wife, would you choose a wife that can't communicate? You end up stranggling her. So for maid, it's even worst, the agency sent u a box of chocolate, you pick but it may taste bad! Then you 'pooi' and pijak the chocolate.

    Human are a very mean creature if not TRAINED or COUNSELED. They go their own way and they think it's OK!

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…
