That long waited mail…

The honking of a motorcycle out there in front of my house took me a little by surprise, as I expected that to happen next week, or perhaps not at all. It turned out to be the postman from the local post office. There it was, came registered, a big white envelop printed with that familiar sender’s address.

Mom did the opening, though the mail was for me, I knew that somehow my mom was more anxious than I am. There it was, that magazine, and a little gift of blessings from everyone from the Tzu Chi Humanities Development Centre.


Thank you for the mail. I really appreciate it. And the blessings are wonderful too! By the way, I wonder if the English Edition for the month of September would still have some of my work there…

Why mosquitoes?

They were everywhere! Twenty, thirty of them, buzzing away, causing much nuisance in the car. Although there were two of us in that spacious vehicle, the six-legged blood-sucking Athropods were crowding around us, attempting to annoy every bit of us.

Then it became an interesting topic of conversation: Why did God create mosquitoes?

“Out of so many insects, why did God create mosquitoes? They contribute nothing beneficial to the earth. Instead, they spread diseases, suck other people’s blood, cause itchiness… Perhaps it was created by mistake.”

Very interesting indeed! Even cockroaches and rats find themselves useful in chewing up waste materials to help degrade organic materials faster. Houseflies also help to speed up the degradation process.

So why mosquitoes? hmm…

Thank you for the opportunities

There I was, staring at the magazine. Somewhat, a mix of emotions clouded my senses – relieved, joy, touched. I did not expect that they would published that work of mine in the magazine.

It was a proud moment for me. At the same time, I am thankful for the opportunity to be featured, to be able to see both my writing and photographs published in the magazine. It was amazing.


Special thanks to Sister Qian-Nee Liang (梁倩妮學姐)for helping me in editing this article. If it wasn't for you, I don't think this article could face the world! 感恩




Often, my work get published in the magazine and I must admit, none of this is possible if I weren’t given the opportunity to try and explore. The opportunities given to me are so much more than what I have given back to the society.

At the end of the day, I am glad that I was given the opportunity to serve, to ask nothing in return. All I could say is, thank you for letting me learn. I really appreciate those who helped me along the way. Thank you.

Global economy crisis

I don’t normally blog about economics, but it’s nice to share this with everyone.

So this is what is about to happen in the future…

May you find this video informative. So please cut your expenses and save up. Meet your needs and not your wants. Hopefully, we would be able to go through this crisis together.

Long time no see…


Remember those days when we sat down together and chat.

Those long hours of talking, and we discussed nearly everything in and out.

Then we parted our on ways, wishing the best to the both of us.


After nearly a year without seeing each other, we met again yesterday.


The meet might be short, but it was very much meaningful to me.

We may have chattered a lot of things,

some topics were very much in common, some others were mainly personal.

Still, our chat reminded me of those days:

when we sat down to enjoy a simple meal, where we get to know each other better.


A day will come when we meet again, and hopefully that time, we could have more time for a cup of tea, to chatter like those old times again. Someday… one day.
