Sunbath day extended – under the eye of Science

I bought a cheap, toy like microscope for Ray. He is enjoying it now. We explore all the fabric, put sugar and salt under our eyes, we even squash an ant and watch it struggle while we study. We feel like a bad god.

Not enough, we went downstairs and scoop some filthy drain water to look for microscopic hopes. You will be surprise how clean they are.

Sunbath day – We are Chinese, we are yellow.

Your ideal may be able to stand the test of religion, but can it stand the scrutiny of science?
First Chinese lesson with a princess

I decided, if I am going to pass my Chinese knowledge to them, I might as well do it the fun way. Fun for them, fun for me.

You know, many regard language as skill, which one can learn, practice, master and be good at it. I think otherwise. I treat them as legacy, which we inherited them, and you cannot educate, you merely pass it down. So, if you are a proud and excellent English speaker, you think you own it to your talent. I am sorry to say that you are but a spoilt second generation who is born with a sliver spoon. When is the last time you share your ‘fortune’ with a less fortunate?

Did you invent these languages?

Ruth has better ability to pick up Chinese, I can tell. Would I be able to pass down all that I have, multiply them and give even more?


This is my first lesson with Ruth, she pronounces accurately every word. I manage to get her attention for about 10 minutes, after that we just play stack’em. She laughs fanatically when a high rise collapses which makes me wonder why it is so funny.

I ask, “将军呢?”

She just pointed at “兵” and said, “ne!”. I guess in such a mess, chaotic situation, it is really very difficult to tell who the leader is. It ends up with me choosing the leader for her.

Chinese, is harder to acquire than English. Is that why many Singaporean choose to go the easier way? This question flashes across my mind in many occasion, and I am afraid this profound, beautiful language may not be able to survive here after 10 more years.


My Saturday night never ends, but I have to shorten our Chinese lesson. I cannot focus anymore.

Why do you turn away from me, my friend?

AtheistI know why, when people ask, what is your belief? You say “free thinker”. I know why, when face a friend; you say “I don’t know him”. Below are quotes from the past, they are old and wise. You can choose to ignore, but cannot said I didn’t tell you.

Faith means not wanting to know what is true. - Friedrich Nietzsche

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenberry

A man is accepted into a church for what he believes and he is turned out for what he knows. - Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain)

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. - Seneca the Younger

Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned. – Anonymous

For good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony

These are only a handful of them, there are more where it came from,
