Misc...

With the freezing weather for the past 2 days. It really takes 1 swimming coach to be an Eskimo to teach swimming....

On another note, Nicholas is exhausted.
Aei... Exhausted from my training or exhausted from too much fun? Hee.....

I love it when he climb out of the pool and just lie down on the floor and say.. "Ah......."

 Last but not least... Baby charcoal is all raved up. Serviced, cleaned and nicely tuned up... =) I love those yellow bar tapes... Now, Just my aero helmet is missing.....

新少林寺


Tuesday is one of those days where I'll be able to sneak out an evening period to spend time or so called "go par-tok" with xiaoxin.

So, off we went to Cathay to watch Andy Lau new show "新少林寺" after good reviews by my younger brother.



My reviews: 4 Stars / 5 Stars

It's just a very simple plot where after you watch the trailer, you will know eventually what happens to Andy Lau. But. The actors acting skills make everything so real. And with the incorporation of Buddha teachings in it. It's really a meaningful show.

After the show, I couldn't help but think. We will always realised how fortunate and lucky we were after we lost something/someone. And what a wonderful world it will be if everyone can have compassion and forgiveness for one and other.

If, sometimes, all we need is just a little bit more patience in waiting for that granny who's waiting in the Q in front of us to search for that 10cent coin from her purse.

If, sometimes, all we need is to use our heart to listen to what the children wants to tell us how he/she feels about their favourite cartoon show.

If, sometimes, all we need is simply look into the eyes of a stranger when communicating with them to make them feel secure.

Why not?

I like Religion. be it Taoism, Buddhism,Christianity, Catholic, Islam or Hinduism . These are the religion that I come across quite often. Religion teaches us good values and moral. And I believe that's where one can find spirtual peace when communicating with the mighty one up there.

And I leave you with Andy Lau new song - 悟


Disclaimer: We paid our own tickets for the movie and I'm not even given a piece of "Bak-Gwa" writing this review. Purely, Teacher Jerry just like to share good things with everyone. =) I'm a Teacher. I Share.

The Secret To You

We all feel depressed, negative at times. Especially things that we wanted so much don't come along our way. At times, we might even be so agitated that we become "Emo" and affect others around us.

So here I am! Dedicating this video to everyone out there who needs a little encouragement. =)

p/s: Educate the children early with positive vibes and they will grew up stronger than you can imagine.

Race plan

Against all odds

We have a lot to learn everyday. Be it from a friend or a stranger.

In Hong Kong, while shopping along Ladies Market, we came this stranger. He lost his hands. But that didnt break up his will to survive.

Now looking back at the video. I'm just glad that I got 1 flower from him to give to Xiao Xin. =)

Last day in Hong Kong! And we are already missing it.

Hong Kong Day 4

After 3 days of continuous walking, shopping and eating, we decided to take things slow on Day 4 and decided that we should stay around Yau Ma Tei area.

We walked once again to Victoria Harbour. And saw my long lost love. Mobile Softee! Hee...
 The famous clock tower near the Star Ferry pier.

 Xiao xin photography skills are that good! Capturing the 1 and only junk boat behind us. =)

Hello. Hello.. Testing. Testing....
I'm in charge of carrying our tripod around. The tripod that takes great photos of us... =p

l'Elsir d'Amore
 Another "exotic" food considered by Xx. Roasted Pigeon! My favourite! And it's so hard to find a restaurant that sells that nowadays.
 After dinner, we went back to Victoria Harbour to catch the "Symphony of Lights"
 where we took great shots again!
This is my personal favourite. =)

 Day 4 was boring? No way... Number 1, we were really too tired out to venture to other areas hence we decided to rest abit on Day 4 and explore more on Day 5 & 6.

Number 2, I brought something on Day 4 which.... shall be revealed tml. =p
