Addiction

My wife thinks I am addicted to gaming. I disagree with her. On average, I spent less than one hour per week playing games. Is that addiction? If you watch one TV drama per day, you are already spending an hour on this entertainment. And gaming is my only entertainment as I don't watch TV nor do I have Astro at home. Is one hour/day for entertainment addiction?

  1. HaHaHa ...you must be thinking 'what's wrong with woman and pc gaming yea' ...why can't the woman understand the 'little yoga' time for the man?? ....Perhaps expose her to the 'worst gamers' that u hv, when she gets to compare, you playing 1 hr per week - issssss soooooo good, u hv always been discipline in this, as a friend, I don't think you are addicted, as the matter of fact, all these stopped tremendously since u r growing more in your spiritual life as well as being a father :) ... so far, i think this is one area where u r still struggling with wifey yea .... may u get your little pc gaming time.

  2. You are absolutely right - this is one area we struggled to accept.

  3. Well well well .. it just show at certain time or level, you and your wife has a different interest. Put it this way, when you are playing games (your interest), your wife may be busy with Miss Sen (her interest). When she sees you absorbed in your own interest, at the back of her mind, she may unconsciously thought that you are not doing enough to support her interest.

    A speech that came out from her mouth, is motivated from an interest. However, when we interpret it, we only read the surface, she don't like me playing games!

    My advise, go one step further, what motivated her to say that! That's what you want to cope! Once you understand, then you go into negotiations so she could accept your gaming. After all we are all human aren't we??!!

  4. Her beef with me is that I didn't spend enough time caring about her well being i.e. asking her how she was, etc.

    Basically, it's like what that book "Men from Mars" said - she feel that I didn't fulfill her emotional needs and she points the finger at gaming, despite the fact that I didn't spend a lot of time on gaming.

    Ah women! They are really from Venus!

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.

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.


Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.



And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
