How to have clean fresh pure air at home?

leave a comment »

Always ventilate indoor air frequently.
Wash bedding materials frequently in hot water (above 60 degree C) to reduce dust mites.
Never cook with charcoal in our home.
Clean ceiling fans so they do not spread accumulated dust particles throughout the house.
Clean air-cons and ventilating systems frequently to ensure fresh air circulation in the room.
Run a dehumidifier in places with high relative humidity to prevent the striving of airborne allergens and germs.
Use a vacuum tool to dust instead of a cloth or duster which may spread dust into the air.
Remove shoes before entering our house to prevent bringing in unwanted dirt, dust and other contaminants into our living environment.

Breathe … enjoy lives!
Appreciate our air …
Fresh air is precious ….
Fesh air is blessing …
I still remember how I ended up spending 4 days to get from America to Asia because our plane has oxygen leakage.
God, I am so grateful for fresh air that You gives us every second of our lives.

My twitter in May 2011:
Craving for Kit Kat! [Count my blessings]: KK original, KK green tea matcha (bought in Narita), KK cherry / strawberry, KK orange, dark choco (UK). Wanted: KK melon.

I want to buy KK melon and KK white chocolate!
I want to buy KK cinnamon, coffee, available in Canada.
KK Café Latte with Hokkaidō Milk, KK Tiramisu Macha, available in Japan, sigh.
Nestle, I want KK pistachio! Please produce them.
Once, I drank super delicious McDonald melonshake in 2007 at Seoul, but I could not find it at Seoul McDonald in 2011. I want melon! Melonia!

Kit Kat, an expression invented in Britain in the 1930s, sounds eerily close to “kitto katsu,” a Japanese exam-season mantra that literally means “I’ll do my best to make sure I succeed”.

Indeed, when I was preparing for exams so that I could win a university scholarship, I ate KK after night revision to reward myself. Happy memory can be very simple.

Stumbling on happiness

leave a comment »

What is most important to your happiness?
health (sound body, soul, mind)
people around you (family, loved one, friends, etc)
career, wealth, prosperity
your appearance
a passion (music, sport, hobby, etc)

Interesting stuff from the book Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert:

Blessings make me happy. Here are blessings of my ordinary days.
Many are to do with food, thank you God for the food you gave me.

February 17, 2011
Saw a rabbit in the full moon.

February 16, 2011
Eat vitamin ester-C bought in US almost every weekday recently, stay healthy!
Eat Western grilled fish + fried rice with bacon + coleslaw.

February 15, 2011
Eat almond cookies of Koi Kei bakery, brought by a friend from Macau.
Eat Crown Choco Heim of Korea.

Tertiary education to cherish

leave a comment »

Recently, through God-given natural instinct for beautiful and big-dreaming people, I am so grateful to learn from this charming and generous lady TP.

She commented that many students do not cherish their opportunities to receive tertiary education.
Do you still remember when you were fighting just for a slot in your undergraduate university?
I am grateful that I made it (entering with hopes, exiting with even bigger hopes and determinations to give my best in this life to family, society, and the world)
A senior commented how colorful my undergraduate days.
He is right.
A junior student even openly admire my achievements.
I am touched.
Received scholarship.
Among top students, even I would say that there are many others who are more intellectual than me.
Completed a minor program in a year together with my major workload.
Succeeded to secure an exchange study and obtained good results.
Went to a summer program at the most prestigious university of a country.
Worked part-time.
A student leader, rubbed shoulder with nation leaders.A volunteer (a mentor, a first aider).

While these experiences seem prestigious and fanciful, it is the learning process that allow me to grow.
Counting these blessings, I could only thank God.
Re-searching my passion and leadership.

Other stuff learnt from TP:
3 (simple) rules of risk management:
1. do not risk more than you can afford to lose.
2. consider the odds.
3. do not risk a lot for a little.

I am a blessed person

leave a comment »

Last night, Darling mother prepared bird nest soup for us.
We learnt about the Billing Ovulation Method.
This morning, we had our brunch together with the scenery across the road.
I love coconut, but I refrained from drinking it for health concern.
God, thank you for blessing me with a loving Darling.
Please help both of us to graduate from our study.
I will try my best to understand my study materials, it is the efforts that count.

The evolution of aspirations

leave a comment »

When I am in high school, I dream of going to a famous university overseas, travel the world, meet people from different cultural, religious, political backgrouds whom I have never encountered before.

When I am in undergraduate, I aspire to heal the world. I am afraid of blood, so cross out doctor as a profession of choice. I did not mind to go to the lab 7-day a-week, arriving in the morning, leaving in the morning too (early a.m. hour). Then, I realized that my body is not strong enough to endure this challenge, I need work life balance.

When I have lived a quarter-of-century, I appreciate finance, investment, and entrepreneurship, for I wish to start a family and to spend quality time with my family. No matter what I will do, what professions I will undertake, I wish that I will be able to do God’s will, to do what I love with my best efforts and use them as service to others.

The 10 most important things

with 2 comments

I abbreviate it as “LHH far pics”




LOVE is the special feeling that makes you feel all warm and wonderful.
HAPPINESS is the full enjoyment of each moment. A smiling face!
HONESTY is the quality of always telling the truth.

FORGIVENESS is the ability to let things be without anger.
APPRECIATION is being grateful for all the good things that life has to offer.
RESPECT is treating others as well as we would like to be treated.

INTEGRITY is the purity of doing what is right, not matter what.
COMPASSION is the essence of feeling another’s pain, while easing their hurt.
SHARING is the joy of giving without thought of receiving.

@~@ When I was a kid, I collected stickers and stamps.
@~@ After I went overseas for the first time, I started to collect cards (birthday, new year, etc). I am still collecting cards and stamps now.
@~@ When I went to live in UK, I started to send Mum postcards from every country that I visited for the first time.
@~@ Besides, I also collected travel brochures. Now, I only keep those that I wrote on them, e.g. rides ticked on theme park map.
@~@ I also collected phone cards, pins (not that much). Now, I acquired less phone cards, but more credit cards.

Re-remember these blessings:
@~@ Recently, I read a newspaper article in which the author described her first sight on polar beat at Copenhagen zoo. I asked myself why I did not go to the zoo while in Copenhagen almost two years ago. I just remembered from a park map in my drawer at my parents’ home that Mum and I have seen polar bear at the Sea World, Gold Coast, Australia. Now, I want to see panda!
@~@ I have attended a talk by Bill Gates in 2005.
@~@ We (MX, EY,SL, and I) had a generously-treated banquet at Nirwana Ballroom, Mutiara Hotel.

# Jan 2nd: Saw the largest bright round moon I have ever seen on the bus home after donating to Salvation Army. Dear imagined it as a rabbit, I thought of a semi-laying mother lifting up her baby.

Oops … I forgot to note them down. Will do more diligently in Feb 2010.
