If I happy, and you know it


   Hi folks!

I read about Sheoh Yan's entry on If I happy, and you know it and like to pen down mine too...so hmm..perhaps by listing out, I consciously taking note of those events which makes me happy and thus do it more often and consistently..hehe

Now, let's begin:

If I happy, and you know it,
  • I had a good sleep. (I told my hubby before that I am truly like a kid, if I don't get enough sleep, I go cranky :P)
  • I managed to do some exercise whether jogging, sweat out in the gym, dancing, yoga, etc ( I remember reading somewhere  that exercising creates happy hormone :D so folks, let's commit to our constant exercise regime! )
  • I get to do my reading (it's certainly a luxury to me even to be able to flip through 3 pages of a book..that's why I love blog-hopping via my trusty Google Reader; enjoy having my daily dose of reading short entries from all the blogs I subscribed to)
  • I managed to achieve tasks listed under my To Do List
  • I managed to overcome something I thought it is impossible
  • I am listening to some happy songs
  • I spend some time and effort to dress up
  • I go out of my comfort zone and routine; and did something extraordinary
  • I made a good purchase/great bargain
  • I had a good chat or heart-to-heart talk with someone I cared about
  • I just had my favourite food (e.g. ice-cream) or just receive a hug/kiss (from kids/hubby)
Basically, I am quite like Yan too; easily happy/satisfied. My basic needs are:
  • Good Sleep
  • Daily Shower (either long or quick one; shower is the first thing i do once i reach home, no matter how hungry or tired I am as I always feel refreshed and energized; not to mentioned destress after I had my shower)
  • Hot meals
A happy mom = happy mom & wife

So folks, have you been fulfilling your basic needs to remain happy?

Why not make your list too! And enjoy...**smile**

Cheers!

Vocab 8: What new words I learn from the "news" today

Hi folks!

New words learn today:

The High Court has declared lawyer Matthias Chang a "vexatious litigant" .
(Source: http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2011/7/20/courts/9132950&sec=courts)


Vexatious litigation is legal action which is brought, regardless of its merits, solely to harass or subdue an adversary. It may take the form of a primary frivolous lawsuit or may be the repetitive, burdensome, and unwarranted filing of meritless motions in a matter which is otherwise a meritorious cause of action. Filing vexatious litigation is considered an abuse of the judicial process and may result in sanctions against the offender.
(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vexatious_litigation)

Hmm..this is more like a law/ court term...

Let's see if we separate them, what would be the meaning:

vex·a·tious/vekˈsāSHəs/Adjective

1. Causing or tending to cause annoyance, frustration, or worry.
2. Denoting an action or the bringer of an action that is brought without sufficient grounds for winning, purely to cause annoyance to the defendant.
(Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/vexatious


lit·i·gant/ˈlitəgənt/

Noun: A person involved in a lawsuit.
Adjective: Involved in a lawsuit: "the parties litigant".
(Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/litigant)


Another two new words learnt...

Cheers!

When two persons say it is not right...

Does it means it's really not right? Look from within yourself to find the answers... Majority voices do not equal to ultimate answer. Take with a pinch of salt.

Malaysian women 16th most stressed in the world

Hi folks!

Wow, when i go thru' my daily reading ritual, this is the first article I came across at TheStarOnline.

Here's the excerpt:
NEW YORK: Malaysian women are ranked 16th most stressed in the world, according to a recent study.
The study, which researched the buying and other social behavioural patterns of women in 21 developing and emerging economies of the world, reveals that women all over the world feel stressed out, with women in the so-called emerging countries facing greater stress than women in developed countries.
India has the world's most stressed women, says the study prepared by information and media company Nielsen.
Malaysian women (44%) rank 16th in the list, while women in Thailand share 15th spot with South Korea (45%). Japanese women (52%) rank 12th while mainland Chinese women (51%) rank 13th.
For full article, go to TheStarOnline.

Do you agree folks? At certain level, I do agree...

Cheers and hope we are able to reduce or manage our stress level well today!

Vegetarian Meals @Temple

Hi folks!

Today is Kuan Yin birthday..are u having vegetarian meals today?

The nineteenth day of the second month of the lunar year is the birthday of Guanyin. On that day, young men and women gather to burn joss sticks and worship either in the temple hall or in the court area. Some offer oil for Guanyin's ever-burning lamp and pray for health and peace; others offer long silk scrolls in the hope of bearing a son. If a son is born, the parents will put him under Guanyin's lotus seat to proclaim their faith in Buddhism and make the baby the adopted child of Guanyin. By doing so, they think Guanyin will bless the child with longevity. Monks and nuns set up assemblies in honour of Guanyin. The places of worship are solemn and grand. Incense and flowers are also offered to Guanyin.
Women eat a vegetarian diet from the first until the nineteenth of the second month, the birthday of Guanyin. This is called Guanyin's vegetarian fast. This practice is observed again from 1st to 19th of the sixth and the ninth months in the lunar year.

Last full moon my colleagues brought me to a temple @ OUG to taste the food & pay by donation...hmm..something special yet nostalgic to me as I recalled my mom used to visit such temple during the full & new moon to pack us some yummy vegetarian dishes when we were young ;) how about you? Do u regularly observe vegetarian diet as well? Try it..it's good for ur soul & health (no matter what religion, faith or belief you are)! 
Think: Plant-based diet, a sustainable diet for a better world, eco-friendly diet ;)

Cheers!

Young kids should be banned from


Hi folks,

My blogger buddy and mentor, Ai Lian tagged me on her entry of Young Kids Should be Banned from. Here are my takes:


Young kids should be Banned from:
1. Having free flow of sweets, soft drink and chocolates anywhere (whether from fridge@home or kids events/cool aunties)
2. Having too much "writing/copying" homework
5. TV and computers, before finishing their homework and revision.
6. Shouting at each other and at their parents
7. Bringing too much pocket money to school
8. Taking over parents' laptop, iPhone, iPad every single day (hehe)
9. Having too many tests/exams
10. Having astonished kilos of school bag(not more than 1/4 of their weight should be more reasonable) to lug to school everyday


In fact,the list can be more..but it's Monday and my brain is banned from going further than 10  (hehe)


So, hereby I am getting EVERYONE.... Tag yourself, anyone, everyone who read this(even if you are not a mom yet..but certainly am an uncle, cousins, aunties of kids ;)


Enjoy the free-flow of fun..listing out the unimaginable list of yours!
