Ringgit has a domestic helper...

... and what a relief it was. I used to be pretty reserved about having a live-in maid. There are many horror stories you hear about maids. Our maid have been with us for almost 2 months. So far, so good. Pretty happy with her performance. She has a lot of initiatives, not much training is needed and she doesn't need to be told what to do. When she has nothing to do, she will find something to keep her busy - she said that work help keep her mind off family. I guess maybe that is the reason she has the initiative.

She's also the cheerful type and we were able to communicate with her. So far, we haven't had any need to scold/get upset over her performance. I hope she keep it up.

But honestly, with her around, we get to spend more time with little sen and get to cook home cook food! YUM YUM!

  1. Listen ringgit, yes a maid helps you to clean the house etc etc. One reason mat salleh do not want maids is because if they leave the babies to them, the maid may destroyed the parenting style the families are adopting. So you need to watch what the maid said to the babies! Babies imitate what adults says and do! So you need to condition your maid too on what to say and do if you feel it's negative!

  2. Totally aware of what you are talking about. Which is the reason we don't let the maid handle the baby. We'll do it ourselves. She just need to do the house work.

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.

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…

How to change Twitterrific V6 Theme

Yesterday, my favorite Twitter client, Twitterrific, released V6. I have been using Twitterrific for years and while I sometimes try other clients, I always end up with Twitterrific. So, I am extremely happy to see it still being actively developed.

One of my favorite features of this release is the introduction of new themes. There is one theme I really like. It's called Parakeet and it's almost based on the Solarized Dark colour scheme. However, there is no Solarized Light and so, I was delighted to learn that there is a way to change the theme manually by changing the .plist file.

Twitterrific syncs the theme file to iCloud Drive under the Twitterrific folder. There is a Themes folder and inside it is a Day and Night subfolder. They also nicely included a sample theme file, named Sample.twitterrifictheme. All you have to do is copy the file and drop it to the Day subfolder and magically, Twitterrific client will pick it up. The theme files for all the included 6 themes can b…
