....Father And Mother I Love You....

The Mayonnaise Jar

When things in your life seem , almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class
And had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly,
He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students, if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open Areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided,
'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things - family,
children, health, Friends, and Favorite passions –
Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, Your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, house, and car.

The sand is everything else --The small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' He continued,
'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff,
You will never have room for the things that are important to you.


Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play With your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

'Take care of the golf balls first --
The things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled.
'I'm glad you asked'.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'

Please share this with other "Golf Balls"

Skim Bonus Bayi Singapura..

Ape pendapat korang pasal skim ini?

heard about this b4.. but never know details.. got the pamphlet when brought Farizah to see doctor..

bestnya la kalu dpt duit.. 3 anak nih.. bape dah.. hahahha.. though bukan dpt kat kami.. dpt kat anak2.. still.. tempting tuh! utk org Singapura la utk dptkan anak!

Nape tade org komen pasal nih? huhuhu.. leh me give my opinion..
1. untuk org warga negara Singapura.. dpt anak.. dpt rezeki.. dpt 4ksgd tuh.. utk anak pertama n kedua.. but duit tuh utk kegunaan hal anak.. n anak kene anak yg hidup la...
2. kebanyakan ibu bapa yg mampu kan sure akan buat saving utk anak2 mereka.. so nih.. bape byk kiter save.. masukkan dlm acc anak.. gov (they use term pemerintah) akan masukkan same amount to our children acc.. up to 6ksgd for 1st 2nd child then limit lain sila refer n till b4 dorang 6 yrs old..
3. duit nih ibu bapa tak bole cashkan but boleh guna utk bayar education n child care kot.. yg registered with MOE? something like that..

thus.. seronok n untung kan org spore! loan flat HDB pun rate rendah je utk warga negara.. 1.5% ker 1.25%.. but one time only.. best2..

Purify your heart...

This is written by my sister.. well written and worth to read..

Purify your heart...

It has been so long since my last entry..

I had a mother-daughter chit chat regarding lots of stuff in life this morning.. Talking to my mother is something that I treasure most.. Every single conversation would never fail to teach me how to become a better person.. This morning my mother emphasized on how important it is to have a very pure heart..

The suffering for most of the problems in the world originates in the human heart. Every act of hatred and jealousy, every callous cruelty, every crime committed, and every injustice to the self or others emanates from the hearts of the ppl..

Therefore, my mother told me, if we are to right the 'things', we must first rectify our hearts, and this is why I believed every revelation has been granted to humanity in order to make firm our hearts..

In fact, the most often-recited prayer of the blessed Prophet, peace be upon him was,

"O Revolver of the hearts, please make firm my heart upon the straight way.."

The Prophet once said to his companions, “Do you want to see a man of Paradise?” A man then passed by and the Prophet said, “That man is one of the people of Paradise.” So a companion of the Prophet decided to learn what it was about this man that earned him such a commendation from the Messenger of God. He spent time with this man and observed him closely. He noticed that he did not perform the Night Prayer vigil (Tahajjud) or anything extraordinary. He appeared to be an average man of Madinah. The companion finally told the man what the Prophet had said about him and asked if he did anything special. And the man replied, “The only thing I can think of, other than what everybody else does is that I make sure that I never sleep with any rancour in my heart towards another.” That was his secret.

The Quran states that,

"On the day of Judgement, when neither wealth nor children will avail, only one who brings forth and sound heart."

A sound Heart!

I was inspired. Inshaallah, you will be too.

Let us purify our hearts and be a better person!

Friendly reminder..

m sharing fwd that I received in my email..

High Alert when you withdraw money from ATM

Today at 11:12pm

This afternoon around 5:30pm I was at Queensbay Mall Penang, doing some financial payments (credit card, mobile and etc). I went to the 1st floor Maybank ATM to withdraw some money.

As the ATM was finalizing my payment, someone tap me on the shoulder. Naturally I turned around, and there was this stocky Middle Eastern man (around 5ft 2in, fair complexion), pointing to some money on the floor (around RM30+ there were 3-10 ringgit and several 1 ringgit notes).

He said “ I saw you drop your money just now”. Coincidently today I have some bundled spare notes in my shirt pocket. So I pick up the ringgits on the floor.
Suddenly a lady also of Middle Eastern descent – shoulder length curly hair, fair complexion, 5ft 3in said to me “ It’s my money!” then the man told her “ No, I saw him dropping it – while pointing to me”. Instantly I check my shirt pocket, with a quick glance I felt and saw my bundle of spare notes is intact. Without any hesitation, I pass the money to the lady and said “It’s your money, not mine.”

Within split second, I turn back to the ATM and saw a male person hand (did not see the face) was approaching for my ATM card that the machine automatically return upon finishing a transaction. Out of natural instinct, I slap on the wrist of the person’s hand that was trying to take my ATM card.
And the person quickly walk off, I did not have a chance to look at the face as I was waiting for the ATM to dispense out my RM1500.

All this happens within 2-3 seconds. When I finally got my cash and turn around, the Middle Eastern man and women has disappeared including the taller male person that was trying to take my ATM card and most possibly my cash. I quickly went down the escalator to see where they have gone, I manage to catch a glimpse of the Middle Eastern lady as she was going down the escalator but then she also quickly vanished.

If I had been slightly doubtful of my own cash in my shirt pocket OR being greedy, I would most likely had my RM1500 stolen. The Middle Eastern man and lady job is to create a diversion and confusion, while another person is responsible to snatch the cash out of the machine while I was not looking.

This could happen in any mall and there were some people withdrawing from few other machines as well. So it is not a totally secluded condition. I firmly believe they are not the only group in Penang or Malaysia .

Points to be on high alert:
1. If somebody tap your shoulder while you are withdrawing from ATM, make sure you are mindful of your surrounding and especially focus on taking your money first.
2. Their usual trick is to create confusion. Focus on what you are doing.
3. Best is to have a friend with you when you go to the ATM.

Please let everyone you know on this incident. Especially now when near the festive seasons, they are preying on your bonus and salary!
