Good Suggestion by Gandalf the White

With all the wave stir up by the Da Vinci Code movie, and all the Christian Protest, lets give our mind a break and listen to the "Teacher" who try to steal the Holy Grail in the movie.
Ian McKellen, One of the cast and main role in the upcoming controversial movie - The Da Vinci Code, says:

"Well, I've often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer in the front saying this is fiction. I mean, walking on water, it takes an act of faith. And I have faith in this movie. Not that it's true, not that it's factual, but that it's a jolly good story. And I think audiences are clever enough and bright enough to separate out fact and fiction, and discuss the thing after they've seen it."

A disclaimer in front of the Bible, Warning: Everything you read in the Bible may or may not be a fiction, your past experience cannot help you, your prayer cannot guide you, Jesus will not be there for you.

Well, I mean, you cannot prove anything in the Scripture, it is only ethical to warn people who read it, including your children.

At least now I can answer my children question about events in the Bible, I can plainly say:
"Dear, this is only a fiction, don't take it too hard."

Joy in the Journey

If you have ever been discouraged because of failure, please read on. For often, achieving what you set out to do is not the important thing.

Two brothers decided to dig a deep hole behind their house. As they were working, a couple of older boys stopped by to watch.

"What are you doing?" asked one of the visitors.
"We plan to dig a hole all the way through the earth!" one of the brothers volunteered excitedly.

The older boys began to laugh, telling the younger ones that digging a hole all the way through the earth was impossible. After a long silence, one of the diggers picked up a jar full of spiders, worms and a wide assortment of insects. He removed the lid and showed the wonderful contents to the scoffing visitors. Then he said quietly and confidently, "Even if we don't dig all the way through the earth, look what we found along the way!"

Their goal was far too ambitious, but it did cause them to dig. And that is what a goal is for - to cause us to move in the direction we have chosen; in other words, to set us to digging!

But not every goal will be fully achieved.
Not every job will end successfully.
Not every relationship will endure.
Not every hope will come to pass.
Not every love will last.
Not every endeavor will be completed.
Not every dream will be realized.

But when you fall short of your aim, perhaps you can say, "Yes, but look at what I found along the way! Look at the wonderful things which have come into my life because I tried to do something!"

It is in the digging that life is lived. And I believe it is joy in the journey, in the end, that truly matters.

My cool look

The other picture resemble Wong Fei Hung, @#$% & your mother, I am 100 times more good looking than them.

Da Vinci controversy escalated.

Again, this should make Mr Dan Brown more popular target for rotten eggs, I wonder would they throw stone at him at sight or not?
This time, never before, thanks to him, 2 religion fighting for centuries united to protest the Da Vinci Code Movie. They even threaten to take matters into their own hands if the local gahmen heck care! News from India. (Link)

As usual, Singaporean never even fart.

Genetic Engineering baby, first in the world

Because it is not written in the Bible.....
Because no great man has live till to give us a hint......
Because he knows how painful it is to pass down this suffering seed.......

Do you think the almighty would allow us to engineer our own child so they can be born without a single spot in their blood? (Link)

Evil must be....

As many of those MSM Journalist would like to say, a few million people can't be wrong. What about 70 million? Are you so sure they are right?
The Epoch Times, whch by now has gain a significant foot hold in many country, not only with Chinese, but with the locals as well.

There are many critics still view Epoch Times as a propaganda mouth piece of the Falun Gong group, how true is it?

The future of this newspaper will be interesting to watch. (Link)

When I say Singapore usually follow the same stance as China, I am refering to, specially pointed to the Falun Gong Group, because it happen during the same time. (Link) and (Link)

But My research effort has hit a wall here, I have no insight of what is the situation they are facing in Singapore now. I would gladly post it here if I get to know them, but they are so quiet here in Singapore, peculiar indeed. (If any Singapore Falun members is reading this, I am interested to find out, please contact me.)

I also did a search for them on the web, all results show how the world and the gahmen has prosecuted them, which also means that their effort in making their voice heard had succeeded. (Link)

How come huh? sometimes I really don't understand, whenever there is a new belief, people always feel threaten and start to prosecute them, especially the gahmen, don't they all preach Freedom of Religion in their constituition?

Everybody want to be the highest

Ok, ok! I will stop Blogging


- When the World or I ended.
- When my heart is adequately feeling free.
- When (at least) I have a few million US bucks in my account.

and, all of the above.

Lame idea on shoe

I spotted this at one of the shoe shop in Chong Pang.
Imagine you are wearing this, urinating, and I ask:
"Hey! dude! What time is it?"
"Oh! Woff! Woff!"

Anyway, Chong Pang is a very old neighbourhood worth bringing your whole family there for a night or so, you cannot believe what you can find there.

After that you will go back again, and again, just for the food alone.


If Darwin is correct, than I may be correct to say
Given the envoirnment we had, the technology we can provide, and such an intelligent species we are. We, Human can take a buch of this monkey and evolve them to Human, like a million years later, possible? (Link)

The World, Vatican and Pope meaningless rants

Or should I reverse the order to Pope, Vatican and the World, because ..... you know, Somehow I got the feeling that someone might be the master of The World, representing God himself.
After denounces Da Vinci Code movie, The Vatican may move to excommunicate China Catholic Churches. (Link), (Link) and another (Link)

Holy shite!, now then I know China got about 7 million underground Catholics, damn! more than two times the population of Singapore.

After one thousand six hundred over years of establishment, China (PRC - the Communist) still able to force a few million people goes underground without stiring up any rebels, this type of thing only can happen to typical Chinese.

Singapore likewise, that is no wonder some party favor Communism style. Quench with fist, keep it away from the people, very very effective kind of management style.

Hats off! China.

(Thoughts): I am going to find some blog, from the underground Catholic members.
