New Years Prayer

Let us close our eyes and pray for 2007

New Years Prayer

Thank you Lord for giving me
The brand new year ahead
Help me live the way I should
As each new day I tread.

Give me gentle wisdom
That I might help a friend
Give me strength and courage
So a shoulder I might lend.

The year ahead is empty
Help me fill it with good things
Each new day filled with joy
And the happiness it brings.

Please give the leaders of our world
A courage born of peace
That they might lead us gently
And all the fighting cease.

Please give to all upon this earth
A heart that's filled with love
A gentle happy way to live
With Your blessings from above.

~ Charlotte Anselmo ~

May 2007 will be a good year

Happy New Year 2007

It's another new year again - Welcome 2007 and Goodbye 2006. A lot of party will be held tonight to celebrate the new year. Clubs, Pubs, & Discos will be packed with people and music. On the other side, there are also a lot of people who suffer because of the recent flood, earthquake and diseases around the world. Just flip through any newspaper and you'll see lots of people are waiting for us to help. For them, there's nothing to be celebrated.

Sometimes, i would just wonder, what are we celebrating? Is there any differences the World on 31 of December 2006 and the World on 1 January 2007? We are still facing the current situation right? hahaha... just a stupid thought i have.

Anyway, i just want to wish everyone i know a Happy New Year and May you all have a great year ahead. To all my friends, stay cool, happy always, have a great career and good health. You guys are irreplaceable!

Here are some words of wisdom for you. Enjoy 2007 ok

Cheers !

Christmas Eve Dinner

Ho Ho Ho... Merry Christmas. I am not a food blogger but i think this is my first time taking pictures in a restaurant i went for Christmas Eve Dinner. Kinda weird as people are looking at me why i am taking pictures of the food served. Anyway, the experience is good. My friend keep on saying that i am crazy but i insist of doing it. That's how manage to get some pictures and show you here.
My friend Sebastian and I went to a restaurant called "Purple Lotus"for Christmas Eve Dinner. Heard some of my friend said the food there not so good. Anyway, that's what people said. To prove it, we went and try on their food. Hmmmm overall, it's average - Eatable. They can do better. The following are some scores rated from me

Taste of Food : 3/5
Service : 3/5
Environment : 4/5
Portion/Size of Food : 2/5
Price : 2/5 (A little pricey)

That's the restaurant. Located behind the right corner of Pelangi Leisure Mall, Johor Bahru. When you make a U turn at the traffic lights to the mall, you will see this. Senang cari la.

The Entrance - Taking From The Table We Seated

Interior Design - Not Bad. A very soothing environment. Very Purple.. No wonder ... the name of the restaurant is Purple Lotus

Appetizer - I ordered the Roasted Duck With Salad. To be honest delicious!! I like the sauce. Taste like Peking Duck Sweet & Sour Sauce. It was a good opening dish

Appetizer -My friend ordered the Grilled Salmon With Salad. It was nice too. Manage to "curi" a bit and taste it.

Soup - Seafood Soup. Taste like mushroom soup for me. ok lo. Pass!

My friend main course - Seafood Platter (Prawn, Salmon and Squid -Sotong) Opps... half of the salmon have been eaten. Anyway, too little...seafood expensive qua

My Main course - 2 types of chicken - deep fried crispy and honey grilled chicken chop. The honey sauce very nice.

Complimentary - Ice Lemon Tea.

Main course come with red wine. Nice!

Overall, good. A little pricey. Not worth for money. Anyway, it's Christmas eve lo. Still acceptable

Movie - Curse of The Golden Flower

It's about 12.30am, i just reach home after a long 2 hours movie "Curse of the Golden Flower". Well, i will rate the movie at 7/10. Too much hot colours - orange and red. Kinda boring in the middle. Anyway, it's in Cantonese. Well, i do understand but kinda weird as it suppose to be in Mandarin. Overall, lovely but overheated. A mixture of feelings as there are lots of tragedy on top of tragedy and this is kinda mix-up. A lot of improvement for Jay Chou compare to initial D. Gong Li is really hot.... her costume is ALARMING hot. Chow Yun Fatt, as usual a veteran actor, he act well. A must watch movie for 2006 if you like China Dynasty related movies.

Here is the website

Hug ... Do you hug the one you love?

I met a friend today and he reminds me on someone who i missed so much. Even until today. I used to have a friend who hug a lot. He hugs his parents, siblings and friends. For him, it's a sign of love and care. I do hug my parents but not my friends. Even close ones i do not dare to hug them. I dont know why. Perhaps it's not part of our culture.

I am writing this because a lot of us do not do this - Hug the one you love Anyway, he passed away 6 years ago because of a tragic accident. I still remember the day before he passed away, he said "Come one... give me a hug.. a goodbye hug". Anyway, that was the last time i hugged him.

How many of us really hug the one we care and love? Do you? If you dont... then remember to do it today as you might not have the chance again....

What Is A Hug?

A hug is a wonderful gift to share
A way to show each other that we care
There is so much a hug is able to do
When you feel those arms holding you

A hug is a place to feel safe and warm
A comfort for a sad heart that is torn
An expression of the love in our heart
For ones who we wish, never to be apart

A hug is a greeting when we meet to say hello
Or to say goodbye when we have to go
It can hold us up when life gets us down
And makes us smile, instead of frown

A hug can be given for no reason at all
And given to those, both big and small
We're never too old to feel the joy it brings
As it is one of life's most pleasing things

And for all of this beauty, a hug is free
It costs nothing, yet means so much to me
We should all hug another to show we care
For to feel a warm hug, nothing can compare

Magic Words

I am pretty sure that we all have someone around us who can cheer us and stand by our side when are kinda down and low and feel like wanna walk away. Somehow we all just need some chat and some words which are just right at that moment.Those are magic words....hahaha.

I am grateful that i have that someone who always speak the magic words. To all my dear friends, i hope you can find someone who can speak the magic words to you.

Enjoy the song.

The lyric.... Magic Words. By Coco Lee (in her English Album - Exposed)

Verse 1
I want you to come to me when you're feeling down.
Knowing I can count on you during hard times.
We will find a way but it won't come easy.
When the yearning fades away, do we wanna stay?

Verse 2
Trying to be strong for you like you're strong for me.
Looking at you holding up so easily.
When I'm having doubts about what I'm feeling And future worries are darkening my mind.
That's when you come around.

And you just say that magic words and everything is fine again baby.
You just touch me like I love and loving you feels new again...mmm yeah.
Sometimes I can get kinda low and I just wanna walk away (from you).
Then you just say the magic words –oh baby- and I feel the sun shinning down on me again.

Verse 3
I know I can be a pain to you at times.
I just wanna find a way to compromise.
I gotta learn to deal with you going your way.
And though you can't be here with me sometimes.
I can't wait till you come around.

And you will say that magic words and everything is fine again baby.
You will touch me like I love and loving you feels new again...mmm yeah.
Sometimes I can get kinda low and I just wanna walk away (from you).
Then you just say the magic words –oh baby- and I feel the sun shinning down on me again.

You belong to me.
I belong to you.
And the feeling's true.
A sense of security.
I love you baby.
And I know you love me too.
When you say the words, the special words, the magic words...
When you say you love me.

Say that magic words and everything is fine again baby.
And you just touch me like I love and loving you feels new again...Oh yeah. Sometimes I can get kinda low and I just wanna walk away.
Then you just say the magic words –oh babe- and I feel the sun shinning down on me again.
