God had created the donkey

and said to him.
“You will be a donkey. You will work un-tiringly from sunrise to sunset
carrying burdens on your back. You will eat grass,
you will have no intelligence and you will live 50 years.”

The donkey answered:
“I will be a donkey, but to live 50 years is much. Give me only 20 years”

God granted his wish.

God created the dog

and said to him:
“You will guard the house of man. You will be his best Friend.
You will eat the scraps that he gives you and you will live 30 years.
You will be a dog. ”

The dog answered:
“Sir, to live 30 years is too much,give me only 15 years.”

God granted his wish.

God created the monkey

and said to him:
“You will be a monkey. You will swing from branch to branch doing tricks.
You will be amusing and you will live

20 years. ”
The monkey answered:
“To live 20 years is too much, give me only 10 years.”

God granted his wish.

Finally God created man ….

and said to him:
“You will be man, the only rational creature on the face of the earth.
You will use your intelligence to become master over all the animals..
You will dominate the world and you will live 20 years.”
Man responded:
“Sir, I will be a man but to live only

20 years is very little,
give me the 30 years that the donkey refused,
the 15 years that the dog did not want and
the 10 years the monkey refused..”

God granted man’s wish

And since then, man lives
20 years as a man ,
marries and spends
30 years like a donkey,
working and carrying all the burdens on his back.

Then when his children are grown,
he lives 15 years like a dog taking care of the house
and eating whatever is given to him,

so that when he is old,
he can retire and live 10 years like a monkey,
going from house to house and from one son or
daughter to another doing tricks to amuse his grandchildren.

That’s Life so do not waste it use it in Lord Service Completely .

Happy Deepavali 2012!

Posted: November 12, 2012 in about me

On the joyous occasion of Deepavali, I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to all my family members, my readers to this blog and all my countrymen in Malaysia and around the world.

Deepavali is a time for festivity and happiness cutting across all faiths and cultures. It is an occasion to share our joy with those who are needy and deprived. Deepavali signifies the end of the darkness of ignorance and the beginning of light that enlightens all.

Lets channel our energies towards vanquishing want and suffering and strive hard for the collective growth of Malaysia on this auspicious occasion.

May this festival of lights dispel darkness and bring joy and prosperity to all.

Berhati hati di jalan raya!

Happy Deepavali! Happy Deepavali!



Dearest Readers and Commenters,

2011 has been an interesting year and we hope that 2012 calms down a whole bunch in comparison. The world needs peace and quiet instead of turmoil and war. So if wishes come true…..Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Men…..

I hear that statement every year, but maybe it is time to make it happen. The world can become a far better place….

As for me, I am just going with the flow. Listening to some good music and consuming some “no good”.

Anyway, we’re done with another complete year. Isn’t it awesome? The year was full of surprises. Nothing was easily predictable. Life is such. Or else how and why we’d be happy or sad about anything! Am I getting philosophical?

Wanna write a little politics here, sorry! Yes, Barisan National has been big failure in controlling the prices of basic necessities of Malaysians.The prices of food, fuel, land, house rentals, clothes, provisions, groceries etc.have all reached sky high.

Millions and millions of our money are collected as Tax every year and most of it is spent for some screwed up projects, cows, condos and for defense.

Will this help in removing poverty from Malaysia?

The salary or income of ordinary people have not increased.

So how can common man survive in Malaysia and along with this Corruption is also high.

So the expected gift of Barisan Govt to Malaysians on New Year 2012 will be a big blow in the back of common people in the form of all the price hikes.

Anyway, lets just forget about politics now, want a make me puke!

Lets get to the New Year.

Here’s a toast to 2012! Some wine too!

Well! 2011 started on a busy note. So many thoughts. And blogging was obviously one of the best things of 2011. Blogging was quite a journey of learning. Every new post I write renews my spirits. And every comment I get, it gives such a pleasant feeling.

I wholeheartedly thank all of you for being there, for taking time to read my writings, for extending such a huge support and for adding significant value to me and my blog. It means so much that I can’t express enough!

Like any other year, months passed and every day was an experience of its own in 2011. You love a moment. You detest a moment. You are active. You are not. You enjoy. You complain. You plan. You succeed. You don’t. You act wise. You act foolish. You dream. You wish. You ask. You demand. And everyday was a mixture of emotions. You are content. You regret.

At the end of the day you go back to bed after experiencing a valuable day of life. And before you do, you already have thoughts running in your head about tomorrow. Life’s colorful, no? And there are people around to make it so. They love you. They like you. The feeling that you matter to another person in itself is very beautiful and keeps us going.

I’m sure the coming year too will be no different. But I want it to be even brighter. And I hope there will be many proud moments.I hope I will write more. And I hope I’ll get to read more random musings, thoughtful articles, and great insights.

I don’t make any formal resolutions but there are things I wish for. I want to learn to meditate more. Yes, many more. I want to see Malaysia grow into a great nation.

That’s it for now. Have fun. Smile often. We’ll give 2012 a warm welcome. No, the world is not going to end. I prefer to believe so. So, be prepared for another roller-coaster of 365 days. With a wide smile!

Wish you 2012 will bring great success in life. Have a good health and be happy! Dare to follow your dreams!

I end here with a picture of me at the top of Mount Kinabalu which I did on this 29th of December which happens to be my 3rd time up the sacred Mount Kinabalu. Here is my first climb and my Second Climb.

Happy New Year 2011 Everyone!

Cheers!!


Used to adore George Harrison when I was a kid. I remembered word to word the song ” while my guitar gently weeps”, even now its so fresh in my mind. For years, George Harrison’s music had some sort of connection with me.I found comfort in them and a hope and a special experience listening to his music. I was always fascinated by George Harrison, I don’t know why.

I’m so excited now there is a much-anticipated film on George Harrison coming soon. Every time I see or hear anything to do with George Harrison it brings back memories than you would believe.

This film a documentary, “George Harrison: Living in the Material World”, tracing the life and work of George Harrison who died in 2001 at the age of 58, is to be released in British cinemas only for one night today, but will be telecast by the BBC next month. Can’t wait to see this.

For your information, Harrison, who was drawn to Indian culture in the 1960s in pursuit of spiritualism, once said: “We had lots of material things at quite an early age and we learned that wasn’t it, we still lacked something.”

I remembered Eric Clapton once described George Harrison as someone special who created “something unique”.

Here is “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. Enjoy….

Dear Readers,

I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Happy New Year!

I am not the resolving kind but a friend of mine made me think about becoming more organized. I shall write about it in more detail some-days, but for now I must share this important resolution with you all.

I resolve to stick to a schedule as long as I get all the external and internal motivation to keep this resolution. I request my regular visitors to share their “We-are-with-you”, “Way-to-go-Bro”, “Wow’s”, “Cool”, with me.

And now a note for the non-commenting readers whose not-so-innocent searches bring them to this innocent blog:

If you were here looking for obscene pictures and stories about…well…you know what – you might say “What-a-let-down”, and look around. There’s more to this world than…you know what. But regardless of the reason that you are here……

Wish you a Happy New Year in which all your fantasies about how Rais Yatim had his sadistic go with his Indonesian Amah, how in the video clip Dr Chua Soi Lek was putting his finger in the pie, Elizarbert Wong’s and…phew…I can’t talk about those others…comes true! (Sometimes I wonder why we get to see the searches that bring people to our pages.)

Now a note of thanks to the real audience of this blog…I’d like to thank you all from my HEART. I am sorry I have been irregular in my postings but despite my laziness, you stayed with me. Thank you. I care about you, and so I’ll try to write more regularly.

Thank you for the great ride. God Bless…/selva

This is my second climb to  Mount Kinabalu. See here the climb I did last year.

Before I started the climb to Mount Kinabalu, I stayed overnight in Kampong Kibbas, Ranau with a good friend of mine Emit Mandadi.

Next day after breakfast, gathered my bag together with my friend Emit drove to the base of the Mount Kinabalu and arrived at Timpohon Gate at around 8.30am where we actually started our climb together with my guide Biling Bin Sanan a very nice Dusun gentleman.

When I reached about 3Km stopped at the “Pondok Mempening” hut and ate my packed lunch as it was almost noon. Couldn’t finish the packed lunch but I manage to feed the balance food to the many squirrels which were so friendly and one even came up to my hands and got its share of food. It was a nice feeling. The lunch pack consisted of 1 fried chicken, a few sets of sandwiches and 2 boiled eggs.

Reached Laban Rata Km6 by 1pm. It was cold and misty and it started to rain. My accommodation was in Gunting Lagadan.

There was no hot shower in Gunting Lagadan and boy it was really cold taking shower in the evening before dinner at Laban Rata. By 9.30pm I was aready tucking myself into the bunk as had to be up by 1.30am the next day for the remaining 3km to Low’s Peak.

My aim now was to get to Low’s Peak and back to Laban Rata for breakfast and then back to the base of Mount Kinabalu (Timpohan Gate) on the very same day.

So did I make it????

HELL YES!!!! *grin* Yes, I made it again to the Rooftop Of South East Asia, the summit, Low’s Peak 13345 feet above sea, at exactly 5.12 am on the 29th of November 2010. Exactly 1 year 1 month from my previous climb.

What an INCREDIBLE experience, just like the last time…so much emotions, but, was a little confuse this time, don’t know why. So much things was going on in my mind.

Anyway, slowly made my way up, right to the Peak. It certainly was NOT an easy climb compared with the climb I made last year as it was raining all the way. Gripping on to the wet rope in the dark was quite a challange! It was only on my descent that I realised just how far I could have fallen if I had slipped. Additionally, the rain did not make my descent any easier as the rocks were darn slippery and I really had to watch my footing and balance.

My mountain guide Billing was such a great chap and a great motivator always telling me ‘dekat sudah bah’. These mountain guides really know their way on the mountain and know exactly where to step for an easier climb.

My verdict this time? Mount Kinabalu isn’t there to be conquered. If anything, she is there to be respected. The climb wasn’t just all physical. In fact, it was more mental than anything. My climb showed me that hey, anything is possible if I just put your mind to it.

Mount Kinabalu –ah! anything more beautiful, taking it altogether, I have never seen and I say this the 2nd time. There could only be one such mountain in the world, and as a landmark it is priceless. I knew that I could not mistake that and this is from my HEART.

In conclusion… INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC, MAGIC… and hard but manageable, just like the first climb.

Strange, just like the last time, even after 3 days my heart is still calling for the mountain! It’s an energy of many dimensions and I confirm it again.

I  really appreciate now the great work Sabah Parks is putting in to keep this priceless mountain as it is. Well done Sabah Parks! Thanks to Thomas Yussof my friend from Sabah Parks.

And one last word…”Please don’t allow others to hijack Mount Kinabalu as it truly belongs to the DUSUNS!”


Today is Veask Day!

Wising all Buddhists a Happy Vesak Day!

Vesak is the time to remember the three great events in the life of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha – birth, enlightenment and passing away. Each event represents a turning point that leads humanity to a better future.

Lets together pray for peace and happiness for all humans beings around the world.

HAPPY VESAK!

Are we going bonkers !? Is it just me or are we all going CRAZY !?

A friend of mine says he hear voices all the time in his head and he says GOD is talking to him. He tells me he cannot sleep. He tells me he had just gone for psychological evaluation. When he told me I was a little shocked but I chose not to ask any questions. I figure if he has something to open up about, then probably best to just let him talk. But I was also bugging a little bit because I too was curious.

He said there wasn’t anything wrong with him and he just wanted to get some answers from me regarding the voices in his head. Maybe he just wanted to hear something else from some outside entity with no personal involvement whatsoever.

Either way it struck me as little odd. I couldn’t help but to think the work place may have gotten to him a bit or even his family or it could be a love affair which turn sour.

But he has just turned 25.

I couldn’t really understand why a 25 year old is going through this.

I mean he is so young, yes life just started and he does not have many problems but for some reasons he felt he needed psychological evaluation because of the voices he keeps hearing.

Then there is this 20-something year old girl who walks up to me while I’m having coffee with my friend Alex, somewhere in Kota Kinabalu, and tells me “Abang, I wanna kiss you now and if you don’t allow I’m going to strip here, you have been smiling at me and I cannot take it anymore”. I don’t even know this cute little thing, never saw her before, but she seems to know me. I was so shocked and so was my friend Alex. Never have I encountered anything like this in my entire life. Something very new.

I asked “Are we going crazy?” This is bananas!

I meant are we all just going crazy and we don’t know it?

I meant I want some answers too (but to what?)

Where do i start?

I can’t lie that sometimes I too feel crazy, wacky and weird.

But when I look and listen to my friend and the girl who came up to me, I just cant help but to think: “what if we cant pull it together and we just snap?”

Will we be able to prevent it?

Will we be able to pinpoint it?

Will we be able to express it in a positive way?

When I look around today I cant help but to take notice to the fact that there are more and more sadistic crimes being committed as well as more desperation, depression, scandals to say the least.

I don’t know if I am watching TV3 or reading the news or a tabloid sometimes. I watch the news and they are reporting on the death of Teoh Beng Hock while being interrogated by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) in their custody…shit! I also hear in the same news a Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu @ Aminah who had a secret relationship with Prime Minister was brutally murdered and her remains destroyed with C-4 explosives in a deserted area in Shah Alam, by some cops linked to the Prime Minister himself. Then there is a story all over the internet saying young Indian boys beaten to pulp by cops, in police stations, and a number of them even killed in police custody, like the poor chap Kugan, who was foaming in his mouth before death. I guess that’s news also. Just like how Anwar Ibrahim got his famous black eye from the Inspector General of Police himself.

When I think about the day to day it worries me and I become overwhelmed. Then when I think about the countless amount of folks who continue to go on each day, we are survivors of some of the most cataclysmic occurrences in history to date. Yet we are victims and very well may be perpetrators of even more indescribable events that have shaped our very way of living.

Its hard not to feel a little crazy sometimes or to feel like you are going to snap any minute because of all these stories and these happening right in front of us.

I mean whom of us is really exempt?

It could be because of an annoying boss or crappy job, a nagging wife or husband, kids, girlfriend drama, Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, $$$, bills, health or sheer bad luck or whatever or maybe just the day to day hustle and bustle of trying to be progressive and productive and forward our career or improve our life, or maybe we are just fed up.

That’s when the pressure builds up, and at that point, or at any given moment any one of us could snap.

Its been said that many of our political leaders may have been a little nuts or ultimately driven mad. And if we look today we can see living testaments to that in some of our leaders, to say the least.

I look out my window and I see Pulau Gaya, I watch the television, listen to the radio, read the paper and I find more than enough evidence to support the theory that we’re going mad. “Man kills wife, wife kills husband, lover kills lover, man jumps down from high-rise building, drug overdose, Mongolian model C4ed, law maker breaks the law and all these sounds like “THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END” to me.

The thought alone is enough to drive me to say “What the Fucks!

I mean its all enough to drive any “sane” person over the edge. But for us who think we are the “sane” ones I ask “Are we really crazy and just don’t know it?, how do we know, do we know our breaking point, will we be able to prevent it, curtail or direct it in a positive fashion? Will it bend or snap?

So will we resort to psychopathic drugs like ECSTASY…”K”…LSD..COCAINE, which is so easily available and which is the obvious choice?

THAT’S CRAZY! WHAT MADNESS…..360 degrees of Insanity

But funny it seems that it may be this same madness that drives us to succeed and pushes us to new limits and bounds that show the continuous evolution of human in society as a whole.

As my Late DAD use to tell me ” son, you got to be a little crazy to deal with this or put up with that”.

So am I the crazy one here?
