MOUse MIce My PAlm :(

May 26, 2009 1 comment

It’s been almost two weeks. I continuously need to apply ointment on my palm and on every single joints of my fingers to ease the pain…
It was only a few days ago then I discover that my two inch long IBM mouse is one of the cause of the continuous pain…causing me not able to practice on my keyboards for a week!

Well, that’s not my story of the day…it’s just an intro to my story.

To stop the pain asap, I headed to the Spring today with one aim: Get myself a palm friendly mouse!

I wonder back and forth between Boulevard IT store and PC Image and spend half an hour time making my choice whether to settle down with a Gigabyte mouse+keyboard at price RM69 or a Logitech mouse at price RM39… Gigabyte mouse is the very first mouse I try on my hand and it feels terrific! Logitech is a mouse recommended by some of my students. The feel ain’t bad on my hand…but Gigabyte is the best mouse on my palm! However, I finally decided to invest my $$ on the Logitech mouse…

Then I happily walked back to my office feeling content with what I just got for my palm. It was not long to discover that all these efforts turn out to be a waste of my energy…
When I plug the mouse into my studio 1555 I found out that the old Dell wheeled mouse, which is attached to my office old PC, is more comfortable on my hand!! Sucks!

Any difference? Grrgh!!

Any difference? Grrgh!!

The only difference which I could notice lies at the end part of the mouse…Logitech mouse’s end part is a bit higher…
Notice from the photo that the clearly shown mouse is of Dell’s. There’s a little bump seen at the background of Dell’s mouse contributed by Logitech mouse…

Maybe a difference here...

Maybe a difference here...

A little difference create great impact hah…

Should I be regret?

I could only be optimistic with the fact that the new mouse is causing less pain than the IBM small RM15 mouse…Sayonara, IBM…we had all the happy and sad time together for almost four years…Don’t worry about getting retire…I will get you a new master soon πŸ™‚

Theme SOng: SEcret GArden – Ode to SImplicity

The rich always get richer. Why?
The one you love doesn’t love you back. Why?
What you pay is not what you are getting…why? Do you deserve this?

It’s been ages since the society sees woman as a weaker living being. The society treat woman differently compare to man. Woman doesn’t seem to fit in any job. No job suits woman except house-wife. How many talents have been buried because of misconception…countless I suppose. At the same time, talented people like Galileo and Vincent van Gogh were not appreciated at their time…society could not accept their belief…they choose to destroy them directly or indirectly… In the end, Galileo die in prison, Van Gogh committed suicide… Do they deserve these?

Genius and Belief

Genius and Belief

Why is the world not as fair as 1+1=2?

Mmm, let’s look at the bright side.

A poor suddenly get rich. HOw COme? (A poor won himself RM100,000 after buying a 4D number)
There is someone out there who care for you without you notice it. You mean the whole world to them. HOw COme? (YOur PArents)
You suddenly get something that you never pay before. HOw COme? Do you deserve this? (YOUr friend GAve YOU A SUrprise present in YOUr BIrthday)

We always hear people say: “Fair or not depend on how you look at it.”
Those who are quite ignorant and somehow gets away with problem easily may agree with it (I think I’m one of them).
Those who always face obstacle and not getting what they want, even though they think deserve it, may claim that it’s bull shit and categorize themselves as the unlucky ones. Those who are in such a circumstances and are positive minded won’t be bothering about fair or not. They will carry on with what they have in life because they are not allowed to judge! There ain’t got time for them to even ponder about it! (Potential dialogue: “Come on, we don’t even have time to earn enough to survive, why bother about questions that doesn’t pay you money for the answer?”)

Perhaps it all depend on the 10:90 principle which I read about it before. It was presented in a powerpoint slide show sent by my colleague. Very meaningful indeed.
The 10:90 principle is saying that 10% of your life is made up of situations that are out of your control. The other 90% is situations created from your respond to those situations which are not in your control. When unexpected incident happen, it’s hard to make right decision and it’s hard to respond well to the situations that come to us in a surprise but we will learn. I know because I’m currently observing myself doing it. It’s even harder when we are exhausted.
Therefore, we must exercise often to keep our stamina at good level. We must keep our body and our mind balanced.

I now think I really agree that fair or not depend on how you look at it.

A chinese proverb sounds like this :”Those who are really smart, they act stupidly to survive. Only those who ain’t that smart try to show off.” However, with this, I’m not trying to say Galileo is stupid to have got himself killed by the Christian society, who believe that he had violated the ancient belief, for showing the world the ultimate truth that the earth is actually turning around the sun instead of the sun turning around the earth. When Jesus was being put up on the cross and tortured by the society, he never mentioned about how unfair the world is…It was Ignorance of the society causes all these tragedies.



Anyway, what I am trying to bring up is, if you made the choice to survive in this world, please don’t go against it. If you choose to strive for the truth, go for it! DO whatever that you think that suits you! Different people are having different motto of life, right?

We don’t have a choice of which world we born in but we have a choice to stay alive or to commit suicide.
We don’t have a choice of which family we born in but we have a choice to choose our friends.
We don’t have a choice of which country we born in but we have a choice of getting a Permenant Resident Status at other country.
We don’t have a choice of getting the talent that we want but we have a choice to master any skills available somewhere out there in the world.
It’s a matter of choice I believe.

Please COrrEct ME if I’m wrong. YOU are MOst WElcome to DO SO. JOIn me in the DIscussion whoever YOU Are and WE may see the WOrld differently πŸ™‚

Amazing CAr Plate NUmbers

Numbers? Coincidence?! NUmerology?!?!
Good thing about having a blog of your own is you tend to think and observe more to get good inspiration to share with whoever that read your blog. So, here I share one of the coincidence I met on the road.

Numbers on car plate.

In chinese community, it is to believed that the number “4” and “7” is a bad number to be used as plate number. People favor “8” for their car plate number.
However, I guess some people refuse to believe in that anymore…or maybe they just don’t want to spend extra money to get other number than what was given when they bought the car.
On two consecutive days, I was lucky enough to see a few “4”s on a few car plate numbers. They turn out to be a great coincidence for me πŸ™‚

one 44 on 28thApr
one 44 on 28thApr

two 44 on 28thApr
two 44 on 28thApr

Here’s the best encounter of the day
4444 on 29thApr
4444 on 29thApr

Numbers, Interesting aren’t they? I personally finds that it gets even more interesting with the element of coincidence! Here’s another beautiful scene:
2929 2919 on 29Apr09
2929 2919 on 29Apr09

“9”s all the way… and observe the last two digits which decrease at interval of 10!! Btw, notice that it was two Toyota Vios with “9”s for their plate numbers.
Beautiful isn’t it?

Finally, this number 6681… my dad’s van is having this number as well… so, I couldn’t help snapping this car…
another 6681
another 6681

Could all this be an omen of big incident? Whoever knows numerology well must help out here…haha!

Just to share with you, I love coincidence.I think that coincidence something that you could only dream of and doesn’t really come by your own will. Destiny call I may say…
