Little sen 1.2 - frozen

Last weekend was one of a tramatic one for us. Little sen came down with a throat infection and had fever. We took her to a doctor in the morning who gave us antibiotic and fever medicine. No problem - we were vigilant in measuring her temp every 30-60 minutes - and bathing her to help cool her temp.

At about 7pm, Mrs World put her to bed. I went downstairs and was about to go out to buy dinner. I decided to check my mail and then I heard this blood chilling scream from Mrs World - "dear, sen is in a fit!!!!"

I read a lot of novels. I read many description of fear such as blood chilling scream, hair standing at the neck, etc but when you read a book, it's just a description and you imagine what it must be like. At that moment, on that evening, I experienced such fright that I am sure Mrs World's words will forever etched into my brain.

She came rushing down, with little sen very limp and Mrs World's finger inside her mouth. Little sen was expressionless. She was not focusing on anything. I quickly grab my keys and we rushed to the hospital.

In the car, Mrs World shouted "we will fight this.. we will win over it" and she started chanting "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" over and over.. after about 5 minutes, little sen just snapped out of it and begin to focus back on her mother but she was still limp and weak.

We reached the hospital at about 20 min (damn traffic jam - note to self.. plot your trip to hospital in advance), the doc took one look at sen and asked us to put her on the bed. Little sen was grabbing her mother in terror but after we told her that she must listen to the doctor and be brave, she nodded her head and stayed calm. The moment the nurse started sponging her with cold water, she started screaming on top of her lungs. Poor baby. Her temp at that time was 39C and they put the stuff up her anus.

The doc said that it is not a fit as fits equal uncontrollable knee-jerk arm-jerk reaction with the pupil going up into the eyes. However, that temporary "hang" (like how our PC hang) is due to overheating and he said it's pretty common.

Still it was a fright to both of us.

Now little sen is ok. She's her usual self. That stuff up her anus immediately brought the temp down and she was alright the whole night.

Honestly, it's not easy being a parent!

  2. Poor little sen , however on the positive side each fight she overcome, her immune system will become stronger. I will suggest train her to do take up sports later when she is ready.

  3. The initiative taken for the concern is very serious and need an attention of every one. This is the concern which exists in the society and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as possible.

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…
