A meaningful quote a day keeps the doctor away...

Bites Tale : Have finished uploaded the photos from Mengkabong Water Village -- up soon. Then next will be about my trip to Bali and Kuching... gosh.... i'm so slow in updating... just stay with me ya! (As if i have lots of people reading my blog, hahahaha!!!)

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

--- Morris “Morrie” Schwartz
(From the book "Tuesday with Morrie" by Mitch Albom)

Got this tag from Business Mars.

Frankly, i love quotes.... it excites me whenever i find a meaningful quote - from books, novels, movies or even blogs - it just simply plant a smile on me and instantly pick up my spirit especially at times when i am fighting with my own emotions.

I got this quote from "Tuesday with Morrie" which has always been my favourite book. I remember when i 1st read it, is on my way back from KL sometime around mid 2006 where i was alone. I was at the airport and went into a bookstore to get some magazines and books just to pass my time there. That's when i saw this book, picked it up, and was hooked to it as i started reading the 1st few pages. So, i bought it and it never left my hands for the remaining hours until i finished reading it on the plane. It was the greatest story and life lessons i ever read in a book, i just couldn't stop my tears from running down my neck...

Since then, this book has become the "Perfect Gift" that i could think of for my loves one... once i remember buying more than 10 copies of this book as new year gifts for my friends and even my bosses. Hoping that i can share with them what i learned from this book.

Frankly, it was very hard for me to select "The Quote" from this book. There are just so many of them... each of them is so meaningful and beautiful the way they are put into words. Morrie has so many quotes to share with us in different aspects of life -- Family, Love, Money & Power, Forgiveness, Youth, Aging and etc, i love them equally so i just kinda select one off the book without thinking too much... hoping that you could get yourself a copy of this book if you haven't read it. :)

This blog is no longer active...

Bites Tale : I'm serious... really... well.... actually... no lah... i love blogging too much to give up...

Been neglecting my blog...

Wersp is right... there're no longer humour in here... i used to write down funny things i did or i encountered in my life.. seriously.. there were none lately... so many things happened... confusion... confusion and confusion... only 1 person to blame.. ME... for being so naive.

It's not that i purposely stop blogging for the past 2 weeks... i was really caught up with work and there actually been a few times where i tried to start typing but then my mind was starting to think about things i should have let go by then, so i just couldn't.

But anyway, like how people used to say.... Life goes on...

So, life MUST go on...

I did something silly this afternoon.... (This is for you, Wersp)..

This is what happens when i do more than 2 things at a time..

Scenario :

Handphone rang, picked up the phone...

Me : Hello?

A : Hi, Can i speak to XXX (A name of a friend's daughter)

Me : I'm sorry she is not here, i guess you called this number because she puts me as a reference.

A : What relationship you have with her?

*I was referring to some notes, typing on the keyboard... trying to end the conversation quickly... so i answered

Me : She is my daughter's friend

* The other end was a total silence...

Then it hit me, so i quickly said :"I'm sorry. She's my friend's daughter... I'm not even married yet!!! What the heck!!! Hahahaha... " (Felt an instant heat on my face, I must be blushing... she must be feeling strange... because i have a very very young voice..)

A : (Laughing so hard... it actually took her quite a while to answer me back) Ok Ok.. Hahaha... urmm ah... Hahahaha... bye...

She put down the phone.

And i don't even know who is she and why she made the call.

I guess, your usual meatball is back!
