Malaysia Blast

I got to see this news from an Australian paper and classed it as 'Malaysia Blast'.

English at work is weird
Malaysia's deputy education minister has said that speaking English in the workplace is "weird" and harmful to the culture and identity.

Mohd Puad Zakashi said employees in the private sector used English 99 per cent of the time and should switch to Bahasa Malaysia in order to show pride in the national language, the New Straits Times reported.

Little Wishes

"I wish to stay at a place without flies."

"I wish to taste Coke."

"I wish to have a dress."

These little wishes seem like will only be coming from a poor little girl living in Africa. No, these are my 'little wishes' in Australia.

Moving to Melbourne

This is a little unexpected to be moving to Melbourne so fast. It should be my last destination before heading back to home country.

I'm leaving Queensland without much exploration. Too much people too little work, and I've too little time and too little money.

I must learn to TRUST, although I can't feel the ground. Hope the Melbourne Move is a better move.

Healthy Breakfast

How much time do you spend on your breakfast everyday? 10 minutes? 15 minutes? Not at all? Or do you munch your bread while checking your email in your office? That was what I did for the past few years, but now I always have plenty of time for my breakfast. Of course the main reason is I'm still remain jobless in Australia but this is so fortunate that I discovered the benefits to spend longer time for breakfast. Perhaps that is the highest quality time I have everyday.

You must be thinking what kind of BIG breakfast I have daily. But to be honest, there isn't bacon & egg, cheese & ham, etc. What I have is only coffee, toast and cereal with milk, plus a copy of 'The WORD for TODAY'. Below is the words for today (5/11/2009).

'...God will help her at break of day.' Psalm 46:5 NIV. Day break, a symbol of new beginnings, gives you confidence that beyond this time of trouble and testing, a new day is at hand. 'Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.' (Lamentations 3:23 NLT)

I always enjoyed my breakfast during weekend after running workout when I was in Malaysia, that simply an award. Since I've been traveling, I simply so grateful to have cup of coffee, toast and cereal with milk while I've no income at all. Financially stress can be depressing, but your strength will always be regained as described as above.

It's the best time we appreciate food after fasting for the whole night, and while we have not been interrupted by any other daily issues. And it is also the best time to have your soul food fed beside feeding your stomach.

Thanks to the farmers who grow wheat/grain/cocoa, thanks the rain and sunshine. Above all, thank to God.

Spend a little time and pray, hope any other hungry children can share your breakfast. Sometimes you'll find a minute or couple of minutes for peace, and it is the time you can see reflection of your past and direction of your future.

If you are always too rush for work or family stuff for the breakfast in weekday, find a personal lunch, or dinner, or perhaps anytime during your weekend. It is good for health, beside running :)
