A little girl asked her mother: How did the human race appear?
The mother answered: God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made.
Two days later she asks her father the same question. The father answered: Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race was developed.
The confused girl returns to her mother and says: Mom how is it possible that you told me that the human race was created by God and Papa says they were developed from monkeys.
The mother answers: Well dear, it is very simple. I told you about the origin of my side of the family while your father told you about his side…

A sweet note to make your day. Enjoy!
One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book. Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ‘Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?’ ‘Reading a book,’ she replies, (thinking, ‘Isn’t that obvious?’)
‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her.
‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.’
‘Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.’
‘If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,’ says the woman.
‘But I haven’t even touched you,’ says the game warden. ‘
That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.’
‘Have a nice day ma’am,’ and he left.

Do you like movies? A colleague once told me of the reason why he liked to go for movies. He said that movies give him a chance to experience emotions and experience that he has not had the chance to feel in real life.
As you watch a movie, you become one with it. You can feel the excitement as the hero battles the enemy, the pride and glory as he won. You feel the warmth in your heart as he falls in love and the sadness and pain as he lost someone he cares for. You feel the anger and frustration as he seeks revenge. At the end of the movie you feel the closure and completeness of these emotions, or sometimes you are left hanging with a question.
Thanks to the marketing force, today’s Mother’s Day is much more commercialized than before. Prices of carnations, cakes and gifts are shooting rockets high. Packages of Mother’s Day’s dinner promotion are also advertised everywhere. Is Mother’s Day is just another day for us to have dinner together? I believe we realize how much our mother means to us. Ever think of the evolution of becoming a MOTHER?
Life is like a candle, when we have burnt all of our allocated time in this world, it will end. However like a candle, a simple puff of wind can blow it out before it’s time. But most of us take it for granted that there will be many many tomorrows ahead of him or her. That is a self-deception. Life, in reality is fragile.
A friend just lost her father as I wrote this. He had cancer and he had only lasted a few weeks after the diagnosis. There is something about moments like this that made people start to ponder about life – where have they been and what they’re going to do in the future. Moments like this makes you realize that life is short. What happens tomorrow or even the next hour is impossible to know. Only God can determine how long you’ll live. But while you’re still living, is there anything that you’d like to do one day?
Wrist tendonitis (or Tenosynovitis) literally means inflammation of tendon at wrist joint. When functioning under normal circumstances, the tendon glides easily and smoothly when muscle contracts. However, when tendon is overuse, it needs to be accustomed to the new demand and if not able to make, it will inflame. Age could also be another reason which may be due to the blood vessel that supply nutrient to the tendon is being deprived.
A significant percentage of wrist tendonitis is due to anatomical reason, whereby the tendon does not have a smooth path to glide. This is common among people whose work is desk bound and heavily dependence on PC. Over time, the wrist becomes stiff and painful to move. It may be swollen as well without proper care.
Hey buddy…if you are reading this article, I may have less to worry. Even if you do not fall under bench work category, then consider reading for your loved ones. I hope it will be entertaining of looking at it from another perspective!
Most of times, we easily irate over little things that happen in our daily life. So much so, we blame this little thing for the delay in achieving our goal. Or, perhaps getting upset unnecessarily over it.
Below article is a forwarded email that gives me more that a little thought. Reflecting on it makes me being more appreciative of our life, and definitely has enriched my spiritual collections. Every little thing happens for a reason…
A trip that brings me to visit a world-class nature wonder listed under UNESCO’s ‘World Natural Heritage’; Jiuzhaigou and UNESCO’s ‘World Heritage Site’; Mt Emei and Leshan Giant Buddha. Sichuan County of China surprisingly offers more than what I can imagine. My heart was captivated!
I have always thought of visiting China someday, something about the country intrigues me and beckons me there. However my command of Mandarin, or rather lack of it have kept my intention at bay. In autumn 2005, I had decided to face up to the challenges and signed up for a tour in China with my better half. China is a huge country, where should we go? Thanks to the internet, we did some search and Jiuzhaigou seems the ideal place for us to start. Being a nature lover, this serene place captures our hearts with its breathtaking vistas. The season is autumn, perfect time to visit Jiuzhaiguo.

20th March 2008 THE JOURNEY BEGINS…
In the unholy hours of the morning, we descended to the runway. Our flight stood motionless on the tarmac, a lone silhouette against the dawn sky – it’s lone form as if a silent invite to the promises of the journey ahead. (Firefly is a small propeller plane)
The twin propeller roared to life, its chugging sounds seems intent on drowning our voices. Flight 3000 charged down the runway. It was a short run and then, lift-off. We are in the air.
The first light of the sun peeked through the fileds of clouds. Colors of crimson and yellow flooded across the uneven folds of the cotton-like clouds cover. It was a field of gold – magnificent. In the distance we can see the peaks of the Titiwangsa Mountain range, it’s tallest points peeking out of the cloud cover, as if attempting to catch the first rays of dawn, and to herald the coming of a new day. The promise of a good trip.
I have always been very much interested in the Land Down Under, but unfortunately have no real chance to visit. So when I was asked if I would go for an assignment to the country, I practically jumped at the opportunity. I was to be stationed in Melbourne for 6 weeks and in that period, I managed to make a few road trips around the state of Victoria.
In this article is an account of my drive to the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. This 400 kilometers road was build after the World War One (between 1919-1932), partly to provide employment to the service men returning home. Running mostly next to the Southern Ocean, it provides breathtaking views of the coastline carved out by the relentless waves hundreds of years in the making. Over a hundred ships had sunk in these areas in the past. The locals called this coastline ‘Shipwreck Coast’.
I was woken up in the wee hours of the morning (about 5am) by a sudden burst of some loud rock band over the clock-radio, whose name I do not know but did the job (waking me up) nonetheless. After a quick breakfast and a quick check of the map of our intended route and planned stops, we started the journey.
