Life is unpredictable. We live in a world of which we have no idea about what will happen to us or others in the next second.
In any second, something freaky may happen to me and take my life away. It could be as easy as ABC - a falling bottle, a malfunction escalator, a mad man, or a flu.
Or one day I woke up to a very sad news about someone’s passing away and I quickly realised that person was disappeared forever and I would never be able to meet them again.
There is no certainty in life. The only certainty I have is that I have been living until now.
What would be your aspiration if you knew you may just die in any second?
You may realise life is not about flashy careers, big name cars, etc but it is about your relationships with the world and with those creatures living in it.
You will be happy that you acquired just enough knowledge and experience to think for yourself; You will be happy that you made every decision in life consciously; You will be happy that you were being who you were; You will be happy that you were being thankful for everything you had and for every one you met.
When I die, plx enjoy the free flow of alcohol in my funeral coz I only die once. And feel free to blame me for your hangover.

We are often reminded how fragile life is, yet we take our lives for granted.
Today, a friend of the same age as me passed away following an accident. We are both Sagittarius; So, naturally, we are both optimistic, energetic, friendly and cheerful. On Facebook and Twitter, we often had short exchanges of comments– mostly on food or funny articles. It is sad to see her leaving us so soon. May she rest in peace in God’s loving arms.
While some of us talk about dreams, some of us have absolutely no idea what we want to do in lives. If I have a dream but I am not doing anything about it because I have ten thousand excuses for delaying until the right moment, my dream is just as good as a dream. Perhaps in the end, it doesn’t matter – whether you want to be an entrepreneur, a musician, an astronaut, a teacher or even a banker… . Let me repeat, it really does not matter what you do in your lives. In my own opinion, what truly matter is how you lead your life and how your life impacts/influence others positively.
You will never know what will happen in the next second. How could you waste your life being comfortably numb? What is important to you and more importantly, what is not?
“That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.” 1 Peter 4:2
Forasmuch then as Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have worked the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revelings, parties, and abominable idolatries: …
A little bit more than a year after the first blog was written, I decided to resume the habit of blogging. The reason is simple - I have too much to share and I need a channel.
There are several advantages of blogging. The Blog is your King’s Landing: In here, you are the King; you rule the blog. This is the place Where you can freely express yourself. Others may like it or hate it but they Had the option to read or not to read your blog. If you are lucky and they like Your post, they will give you a “Like” or give you supportive comments. If they Hate it, they may leave you critics as your food for thoughts.
Today I would like to share two applications that I really like Recently:
Workout Trainer (Free)
This is the closest thing to a personal trainer you will get on Your smart device. If you have a non-regular schedule like me, you will Appreciate this app even more! You will find workout programs in various intensities, Target areas, durations to suit your lifestyle and needs. When you are busy, You may choose to do a Power Workout for ten minutes (I swear this works you out Like no tomorrow.) When you have more time, you can opt for a one hour Tough Mudder training. When you are feeling low, you can do a relax one. The key is to keep yourself motivated. P.S. It is much more effective to work out during the summer, so I didn’t waste my winter and spring doing nothing.
One of the best music streaming apps besides 8Tracks, Spotify, in terms of data consumption, streaming speeds, music selections, user interface, and download-ability. Extremely easy to use. For every soundtrack, it displays the actual sound track and users may comment at specific point on the track. This social element really spices things up a lot!
That’s it for today. Although I cannot say I will update this blog regularly, but I will definitely try to update this as often as I can.
Feel Free to leave me any comments ! Watch this Space!
God, I’m about to face a challenging interview for a new job. First, thank you for this opportunity. Thank you that you care about providing for my needs, and fitting me in the right employment situation is something you yourself are working to complete. I know I have you on my side in this matter. You are looking out for my best interest and I know you have a perfect job fit for me. If this is that perfect fit, then make it perfectly clear to me and to those who are making the hiring decision. Begin now to prepare the time and place where we will meet. Set the tone in the room. I know that first impressions matter a great deal, so help me to be the natural “me” that you have created, so that they can see through my nervousness and anxiety to the person you have created me to be. Give me a peaceful and sharp mind. Bring to my memory all the knowledge and wisdom that is already there. Let your joy and contentment flow out through my words. And whatever the result, let this process be a blessing to those who review my case, and also to me and my family along the way. Lord, right now I receive your “shalom” peace. I trust you to work in and through this interview process. I trust you to provide for all my needs. And if this is your perfect fit, then let nothing stand in the way. If it is not right, then close the door and lead me quickly to the right next step. In your name I bless those who will be conducting this interview. Give them wisdom, peace and rest as well. I receive now, ahead of time, your promise – ” I will never leave you or forsake you!” I believe this and oh, do I need it. I don’t go into this interview alone. You are with me. And with that confidence, I am at peace. Help me now to feel that peace. In Jesus…
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

In addition to Ben’s wisdom and support, this makes me (even more) happy to work for an a16z portfolio company. Though in a long-term and indirect way, more of the product of my work will go toward a great cause.

I am now sitting in a prayer group. The theme of the day is Realignment - spend an hr to draw close and religion your heart back with Jesus at our own pace, in a way we feel most comfortable. I am having such peace or sheldom in this room full of prayers sitting or lying on the floor quietly talking to God. Believe it or not, I understand my issues very well. Career, family, relationship - three things that are important to me most. I know exactly the current circumstances of each and how each should proceed. In family and career, i can be very rational and do the right things for each to achieve the desired outcomes. Of course, i cant do this alone and i must need God’s blessings in all areas, such a Dad’s health and The new role. However in relationship, i must admit that I am messed up, totally. In the same time i am juggling or manipulating the mind of many girls. However, In the end, i am the one who is being mind-fked by them all. Pardon my language. I know what i should do and should not do but i cannot help with thinking with System 1 alone. My system one has effectively ignored system two in pursuit of lust and pleasure that are both unreal and unsustainable. Then i asked myself i wish i could come to church more often and led a simple life. If we have been so concern with time management, we should really note that drinking and clubbing have taken a big part of our lives. If we take it out from the equation, we have created much more productive hours for ourselves. However, I, like many others, am not willing to give up this lifestyle coz it seems to goood to let go: models, bottles, monies, nightlife, fun…etc, who else wanna give them up? It is an internal conflict that many young Christians like us have to dealt with. We r just not yet ready to give outselves 100% to God yet. Perhaps we havent seen it through and we are making excuses for ourselves. Deep inside, we all know what we should do, but knowing and doing are like just-talk and actions. Actions always speak louder than words. Lord, please cleanse us with holy spirit so sooner or later we all realise none of this lifestyle matters to us and we can then submit ourselves fully to you.
Seeing others are being so emotional when they are praying to God, some of them even cried. What sort of relationship do they have with God? How do they see God? I see God as the mighty creator and a buddy per se. I talk to him like he is the only one who knows me inside out, so most of the time I dont even hve to explain to Him in details, he just gets it, i know damn well; i am most likely explaining that just to get it out of my mind or laying out the issues clearly for myself. Thanks God who has made me a more methodlogical person. And O Lord, please help me with my spellings too…

"I don’t write merely to rub two pennies together; I write because I want to have an impact in the world. I want to work with my community to break stories and tell jokes, to highlight injustice and find better ways of solving problems. That means reaching readers where they are. People’s lives aren’t divided into “offline life” and “online life,” even if we’d like to pretend that’s the case. People on Capitol Hill use the Internet. People on Main Street use the Internet. People on Wall Street use the Internet. The Internet is where the action is: it’s where all the elegant, dirty, pretty, lowbrow, brilliant ideas come together to commingle and evolve."

Apple couldn’t get much bigger without selling oil, while the media industry has been reduced to dime-size buttons that show up on iPhone screens. Google regularly announces initiatives to “save” the newspaper and book industries — like a modern-day hunter who proclaims himself a conservationist. And Facebook, having already swallowed up enormous chunks of discretionary media consumption time, has its old-school media counterparts chasing after “Likes” as if they were cocaine being dispensed in a lab rat’s cage.
So it would be easy to think that the Whole Earthers are winning and the Epiphinators are losing. But this isn’t a war as much as a trade dispute. Most people never chose a side; they just chose to participate. No one joined Facebook in the hope of destroying the publishing industry."
