9 Emperor God Festival

The 9 Emperor God festival, which falls on the first 9 days of the 9 month on the lunar calendar, will be starting in another 10 more days on the 11th of October till the 19th October this year.

This Taoists ritual is to celebrate the return of the 9 Emperors deity from heaven to earth, where devotees will stick to a strict vegetarian diet for 3 or 9 days. And the devotees must be "clean" in all means during throughout the 9 days festivals, staying in the temple and must all be dress in traditional white attires. This strict laws must be followed in order to offer the best and sincere prayers to the deities, because the belief is that all these deities to be very clean, and rain are expected throughout the 9 days celebrations because their "walkway" need to be wash first upon the deities arrivals.

The belief is that the deities will be arriving on earth from the waterways, so to welcome them and to send them back to heaven ceremony will be held on the sea shore, beaches, or riverways. From the first day of the celebration, each deity will be arriving one a day until the 9 day, where the 9th deity will be arrives. And those selected devotees will be in trance condition to invite and to send back these deities.

During the last 3 days of the festival, celebrations will be held to its climax. Devotees will be flocking the temples, offering prayes to the deities praying for health and wealth. Many people will be doing business outside the temple, offering praying items, foods, and the most famous "MI KU", a type of desert make from flour to form a figure of a tortoise, which repersent longelivety.

Well, I will be making my way back to my wife hometown in Taiping soon to celebrate this festival, and so far this is the 5th times in a row I'm offering prayers to the deities. Hoping that I will manage to capture as much photos as possible and to upload it to this blog. Keep tune on ok.........

Ah Sir

Yesterday I was with my family going to Jusco S2 to have our dinner and to bring our maid to breakfast there. It was around 6.50 pm by than. I was travelling in the blue dooted line from my home to JS2, reaching the traffic light and I look at the traffic light and it is still green, arrow pointing to the right hand side. So, as usuall I make a right hand turn. Soon after the turning, I saw alot of cars there, bumper to bumper before entering into the shopping mall enterence. I slow down my car, waiting for my turn to go in and out of sudden, a policeman waving his red flag from afar, asking me to park at the road side. I also got a shock, what have I done wrong!!! Shit lah damn it, must kena saman edi lidat!!! I'm very sked with the authorities personnel you see. Remember my post earlier???

So, I stop my car loh at the road side, while waiting for the policeman to come over, my wife asked me "Hey, our car got blacked listed meh???"

I answer "Where got woh, you don't scare me lah."

By than, the 'ah sir' already next to my window.

He asked me : "Encik tahu tak encik buat apa salah...

Me : "Tak tahu lah encik... ( control macho at the same time )

Ah Sir : "Encik langgar lampu kuning tadi lah."

Me : " Langgar lampu kuning??? Adakah encik??? Saya nampak itu lampu hijau baru saya belok kanan mah!!!..."

Ah Sir : "Belok kanan??? Takda lah encik. Encik langgar lampu kuning yang dari hospital punya." ( pretending want to saman and looking at the saman book already )

Me : O_o "Huh??? Saya mana ada dari hospital??? Saya dari rumah saya terus keluar lah encik. Saya rasa encik dah salah kereta lah..."

Ah Sir : "Tapi ada kamera. Gambar encik langgar lampu kuning sudah kena tangkap!!!"

Me : ( Feeling something fishy and very confidence that I'm not wrong this time ) " Ini macam encik saman saja lah saya, tapi saya mau itu gambar sebagai bukti yang saya memang ada langgar lampu kuning di hospital itu......"

Ah Sir : " Ok, encik tunggu sebentar. Saya pergi ambil gambar itu. ( Showing very fierce face )

When he walk away towards his colik and don't know what they talking behind there where I can see it through my rear mirror.......... Than another ah sir came back to me, which I see is younger than the earlier one...

Ah Sir2 : "Encik boleh pergi lah sekarang."

Me : " Tapi itu saman yang saya langgar lampu kuning apa macam??? Nanti saya punya bini bawa kerata ini, nanti kena tangkap apa macam??? Atau saya mau renew roadtax tak lepas apa macam???"

Ah Sir2 : "Takde ini macam punya lah. Encik boleh pergi sekarang..."

Me : "Ok lah ini macam, tapi saya memang takde langgar lampu kuning lah encik!!!"

Without saying anything more, I just wind up my mirror and continue my journey to have my dinner. There are so big different between the road that I'm travelling through ( in the blue dot ) and the way that the ah sir claim that I beat the yellow light. ( in the brown dot ) I wonder why...

Close To You by Carpenter

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born, the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in you hair
And golden starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why, all the girls in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born, the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in you hair
And golden starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why, all the girls in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
Close to you
Close to you

World Peace!!! ;)

Down Memory Lane

It has been coming to 3 years after the massive earthquake and the big tsunami waves hits mankind on 26/12/2004. This date still remains very clearly in my wife and my mind cause....................................
we tied our knot on 19/12/2004, and our honeymoon was in Phuket from 21/12/2004 till 25/12/2004. During our honeymoon, we stayed in Patong Beach. Guess what, this was the place where it was worst hit during the tsunami waves.

Can you imagine it???

Are we really lucky or what???

Eventually we have plan to extend our stay, but due to some unforseen circumstances we didn't. And we left Phuket on Christmas Day 2004, 8.30 pm flight. Reached home before midnight, unpacked and we went on with our sleep.

And the next morning during our breakfast, both our handphone keep on ringing like no other business, calls from our relatives and friends asking for our whereabout. We manage to get some info from our relatives thru the phone, until when we reach home, on the tv, check on the news, by than only we know what had happen actually.

Heard the news again yesterday, massive earth quakes and tsunami warning throughout the Indian Ocean straight, and I can feel the chill running down my body. Can't really imagine it if it really happens again...

What if we manage to extend our stay in Patong Beach??? What will happen to us??? Only God knows man.........

Donkey Kong!!!

Found something interesting in my mailbox this morning, something worth to share... read on my dear readers...

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a dry
well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
well needed to be covered up anyway;
it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and
help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.

Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
looked down the well. He was astonished at what
he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel
dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it
off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey
stepped up over the edge of the well and
happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds
of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well
is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out
of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

Live simply and appreciate what you have

Give more.

Expect less.

Happy weekenders!!!

*Ring* *Ring*

Have you ever received any phone calls from any insurances agents that you don't know them at all? And the funny part is that how they got your contact number, home or offices addresses and your personal details? This have been happening to me quite often, and it is from the same company, but with different agents that keep on calling back again and again and again...

I really salute them partly, cause they are these kinda person that have thick skin, that don't care about how other people scolded them, curses on them, avoided them ... etc. ( which I didn't do at all ). One thing for sure is that these kinda call is very annoying!!! They keep on calling you back, day after day, but at the same time, like what I'm doing is evereytime they called, I'll surely reject them buta buta wan. But, once you think it is over, the next day, they can call you back and can ask how about your decision. Aren't they understand what I've said earlier??? And than it goes again, one word... *Don't Want*. No need to waste your saliva to talk more about it, cause everything for me is the same. Pay extra, more burden!!!!!!!

On the other hand, when I think deeply, they have to keep on surviving in this competitive environment. Actually pity them also lah, every month have to hit target, if not backside sure kena fire wan. Target didn't hit, less commisions. Less money, mau makan apa??? But if I if to enrol on all these, they got something from me, but me mau makan apa??? Really jialat lidat!!! Okokok, cut the crap!!!

Any of you can offer any kind of better way to decline all these kinda calls from them??? Any idea???

Sorry for the readers out there if you are one of the agents. I mean no harm... I come in PEACE!!! I only seeking for remedy and solutions only. Please don't sue me yah, myself also cari makan like you all...
