The Best Motivation Video

Friday, February 25, 2011


Hi! Everyone,
Trust you will love the new dress of this famous Grandma, Menara Condong, Teluk Intan, Perak.

Lately it has been 'dressed up' in purple hues - pretty in purple so to speak. I am sure you will agree with me that it still looks very sexy and attractive. Right?

Its background
This equivalent to the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, is situated right  at the heart of the Teluk Intan town centre.  Similar to its Italian counterpart, the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan has a leftward slant, and all the ingredients to make it an architectural sight to behold. It is the pride of Teluk Intan or formerly known as Teluk Anson.

Standing proudly with the height of 8 different levels of 25.5 meters, but actually divided into only three storeys. Amazing, right? When it was first built, its structure was straight however it began to tilt about 1.8 metre towards Jalan Bandar between 1889 and 1895, due to the weight of its water tank.

Append below please find its photos.

Teluk Intan Leaning Tower ( Menara Condong Teluk Intan )

This pagoda-like structure was built by the Chinese contractor named Mr. Leong Choon Choong, in 1885. It was used initially as a covered water tank for 800 Teluk Intan residents at that time. During the Japanese Occupation, it was then be used as an observation post for the Japanese Army. Subsequently, it became headquarters for the Boys Scouts.
These days, it just function as the clock and tourist center. Its clock tower’s caretaker will wind up the clock’s mechanism using a crank every Wednesday. Commissioned in London, the clock chimes twice every 15 minutes. Its' old yet sexy voice can be heard as far as eight kilometres in radius especially at night. Come and hear it yourself. Please share with us your experience regardless whether you agree or disagree with us.

To get to Teluk Intan from the North-South Expressway, exit at Bidor Interchange and proceed to the road leading to Teluk Intan. The Tower is easily accessible through Jalan Selat. Have a blessed journey.

Remember to walk up its winding stairs to the top of the tower, if permitted. You will surely have fun and excitement for doing so.

Thank for your precious time to read this rewarding and refreshing article.

See you again for more exciting news.

A very warm welcome to this blog,

First of all, I write to congratulate you for taking a very first step to resolve your aging issue. Your positive response to seek information is very encouraging and I am more than happy to share with you some of the simple yet effective steps advocated by Jackie Silver, Happy day Everyone, the author of Aging Backwards: Secrets to Staying Young, which you may start using today to help you to achieve your dream of looking decades younger. Wish you every success and remember to revert back to us your success story. Thanks.

In this connection, for those who think that getting older is out of your control, you are reminded to think again. If you do not change the way you act, then  don't expect a different result. Here, I want to let you know that there are lots of tips and tricks you can do to help slow the aging process that will make you look younger than you ever thought possible. Another great benefit is that you don’t need to get those expensive creams or injections to get the results you wanted.
How could it be possible you will ask ? The good news here is that all you need to do is to incorporate some simple steps/processes into your beauty routine and you will be rest assured of its reward. 

Append below please find 10 of her most effective anti-aging secrets, recommended by the above mentioned author for your information and action:-

1. Drink coffee.

Coffee has more antioxidants than any food or drink in the average American diet. Joe A. Vinson, a chemistry professor at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, and his team concluded the average adult consumes 1,299 mg of antioxidants daily from coffee. The closest competitor was tea at 294 mg.  

Her secret: I like to put a half-teaspoon of sugar-free dark cocoa in my coffee for added antioxidants and delicious mocha flavor.

2. Freeze pomegranate juice for ice cubes.
Pomegranate juice is full of powerful antioxidants that can fight off free radicals and other toxins that attack your skin and make you look older. But just like any juice, it’s full of sugar that can cause you to pack on pounds and age more quickly. That’s why she recommend freezing the juice in ice cube trays to add a bit of flavor to a refreshing glass of water.

3. Quit smoking.
Cigarette smoking ages you by shortening your telomeres. Telomeres are the “caps” at the ends of every cell’s DNA. They act like the plastic fittings on the ends of shoelaces, and keep your DNA strands from fraying. When your telomeres get shorter and shorter over time, they’re no longer able to protect your DNA. This robs you of your vitality and leaves you vulnerable to those dreaded signs of aging. Quitting cigarettes is not easy, but studies show that quitting with a buddy or a program is more effective than trying to quit on your own.

4. Stop avoiding the sun.

Your body needs natural sunlight to get enough vitamin D. And according to my friend Al Sears, MD, getting just 10-15 minutes of sunshine a day is crucial to good health and vibrant, youthful skin. But don’t go overboard because too much of this good thing can wreck your skin, speed up your aging, and even lead to more serious skin problems.

5. Moisturize your ears.
Believe or not, ear lobes show your age! Do you have a cute little dot where your ear lobe is pierced or a stretched-out slash mark? Always include your earlobes when applying moisturizer and makeup. Opt for extremely lightweight earrings and never sleep in them.

Her secret: she never wears earrings unless she is out and about.

6. Eat frequent, small meals.
Don’t go too many hours without eating. Having three smallish meals and two snacks throughout the day can keep your blood sugar and energy levels stable all day long, says Roberta Anding, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association (ADA). 

Her secret: I keep organic almonds in my purse for those times when I’m too busy to stop and eat. Why almonds? According to research, almonds appear to help block absorption of fat and carbohydrates and make you feel more full which may be a key mechanism behind their heart-healthy, cholesterol lowering and weight-maintenance capabilities."Our research shows that the fiber structure of almonds may block some of the fat from being absorbed, thereby reducing the calories available from almonds," says research presenter Peter Ellis, PhD, King's College London.

7. Exfoliate.

You get an entirely new set of skin cells every 30 days, so it’s important to exfoliate. This way you don’t hide fresh skin under dead, gray cells. She suggest using a homemade exfoliant once a month. All you have to do is make a paste of fresh papaya or pineapple in your food 
processor and spread it on your face for about 10 minutes, and then rinse it off. Both papaya and pineapple contain natural enzymes, which help to get rid of dead skin cells. Plus, they’re all natural!

8. Limit facial washing.

As you age, over-washing your face can strip skin of essential oils, exacerbating the natural dryness of aging skin. Many forces affect your skin: sun, weather, lifestyle, diet, genetics and our own bad habits. Plus as you get older, you lose oil glands that can cause dry, itchy skin. Anything that further dries the skin, such as over-use of soaps or extremely hot water can make the problem worse.

Her secret: On days that she don’t wear makeup, she sometimes wash her face without soap. She use just plain water splashed liberally on her face and pat dry (never rub).

9. Pamper your lips.
Smooth lips represent youth. You can exfoliate lips by gently brushing them with a soft toothbrush, minus the toothpaste, of course. Lips have skin, too, which means they need exfoliating just like any other part of the body. But don’t be too zealous – the skin on the lips is delicate. 

Her secret: she keeps a separate toothbrush just for lips. She always buys the same color, so she can remember which brush is for teeth and which one is for lips.

10. Join a yoga class.
Practicing yoga creates a balance between the strength and flexibility of your muscles that not only helps keep you in shape, but also helps improve your posture so you look younger. Many gyms offer yoga classes as well as a free trial to see if you’d like to join. Take advantage of the free offer to try out some yoga classes and decide if it’s something you want to commit to.

Have a Youthful Day,

Greetings from Penang, Malaysia. Read more on this Jewel of the Orient.

IN my recent trip back to Penang to celebrate Chinese New Year, this impressive and effective decoration at the Glugor roundabout caught my immediate attention. Immediately, I requested my wife to snap a photo. See for yourselves, the appended photo below.

This decoration had triggered a reminder of my promise to blog more on these heritage buildings. As such, I found it very catchy and in line with its prestigious award from Unesco. Long live Penang.

I believe that if everyone do their part, no matter how small or big, it will surely restore the Island's glory at the end of the day. That belief drives me to do my part, which I always believe "Action speaks louder than words".

After our New Year lunch at RedHot restaurant, I decided to take my family for a quick tour around and snap as many photos as possible so as to prove my point that they are very serious of restoring its glory. Here, I write to wish the State every success.

In this article, I decided to let you have a first look at various photos that my son have taken along the places we passed by. Seeing is believing and I hope you do agree with my observation. Please give me your feedback regardless whether you agree or disagree with me.

Please take a look at the photos below.

Wow! trust you too enjoy viewing all these new face lift heritage buildings that we have displayed here. Please do direct your friends to this blog so that they too can contribute to its success. You are also more than welcome to visit this state and have a look at these buildings yourselves

Before I forget, I write to update you some of significant facts of the recent achievements by this State and at the same time, thanks you for your past support that make the following achievement possible.

a) For the first time in history, Penang is now the new champion of investments in Malaysia, coming out top in 2010.
 Penang replaced the previous 2009 champion Sarawak by recording RM 12.2 billion in 2010 as compared to Sarawak RM3.9 billion. Penang was No. 4 in 2009 with RM 2.1 billion but shot up 5 times to No.1. On the other hand Sarawak went down from No.1 in 2009 with RM 8.5 billion to No. 4 with RM3.9 billion in 2010. 
b) It is also being praised by the Auditor-General Report for being the best financially managed state with record surpluses of RM88 million in 2008 and RM77 million in 2009. Penang became the first state government in history to be commended by Transparency International for CAT(Competency, Accountability and Transparency) governance in establishing integrity in leadership.
c) I also was made to understand that it has also wiped out hard-core poverty, the first state to do so in Malaysia.
d) Penang is going green and leading in green practices such as "No Free Plastic Bag" campaigns and waste treatment through 3R of Reduce, Reuse Recycle. Penang enjoys the cheapest water rates in the country. Penang is also the Silicon Valley of Malaysia and selected as the most livable city in Malaysia on par with Kuala Lumpur. 
And last, but not least you continuously support is greatly appreciated. So, let us grow together, learn from each other and enjoy the success together. Hence, I write to sum up this article with the speech from its Chief Minister as follow:-

 # A person who risks nothing
    does nothing, has nothing,
    and is nothing.
    Only a person who risks - is free.#
    Shalom, val.

Stay tuned for another excitement.

See you again

Hi! A very warm welcome to this blog,

I believe some of you may be aware that the two lovely young pandas are heading to Japan from China. The good news is that the panda fever is spreading throughout Japan.We believe this gesture will normalize the relationship between these two giant economies, being the second and third largest economies.

Now, Panda flags lined streets near the capital's Ueno Zoo, which is to become the home of the pair of 5 year-old giant pandas for the next decade. Whereas television channels also had breathlessly given broad coverage of these much welcome VVIPs. Look out for All Nippon Airlines jet that painted white with black spots, well reflected the colour of these VVIPs. This special and happy transport arrangement will make this event even more glorified and colourful. This great gesture truly reflected the appreciation of preserving this nearly extinct animals in this planet, which I believe will be welcome especially by animal lovers and environmental groups . Hence, we are very glad to see that  the law of nature is well respected in today's modern technological world.

The male of this pair is named Bili while the female is Xiannu. Can someone tell us the meaning of these two names? How they derive these names. The zoo is expecting a visitors' boom with the arrival of these lovely pair of pandas. See the result at the later stage. Now you can find Panda latte at Ueno Green Saloon restoraunt in Tokyo's Ueno district. Wow, what are other newly recipe/ item being created? Be vigilant and please report to us more about this remarkable and unforgotten event, that gives hope to those involved parties.

Please take a quick look below:-

This pair has unique characteristics. According to the broadcast on Pandas coming to Ueno, the male is shy and likes to do things at his own pace, while female is friendly due to its affable nature.

How the zoo prepare for the new home for these VVIPs? Please do let us know should you hear about it. Thanks. Let us pray that these VVIPs are able to adapt themselves in the new environment. Equally important is that these two great nations will not only normalize their relations, but foster a much better relationship.

With these in mind, let us hope that this first step will lead them to closer cooperation in every aspect to make the world a better place to live in. Long life to both countries.

Let this memorable event bring hope to the world and let love shines everywhere. Please record it on your diary and pay them a visit whenever you have opportunity to do so. Remember to update us should there be any new development. Thanks 

Stay tuned and remember to come back as we will get you updated with more exciting and interesting news update on their new home.

Dear viewers,
Recently, I read about an author, who started writing when she was 92 and she just celebrated her 100th birthday. She is none other than TOYO Shibata. This Japanese writer who writes about love, dreams and hanging on hope may not need introduction to some of you.

Although I have not read her poem, I understand her's anthology entitled Kujikenaide (Don't Lose Heart), has sold more than 1.5 million copies in Japan since its publication, in late 2009. Amazing, right?

For those who have read the above poems, please tell us more about her poems in the comment column provided below. Thank you in advance for your kind participation. It is important for us to know this great author in the hope that more people can follow her footstep.

Her poems, with uplifting titles such as Everyone's Dreams Are Equal and Take It Easy, Don't Try Too Hard, was also described by her peers as an expression of gratitude to the people who have cared for her during her twilight years. We find this author so unique and meaningful. 

A TV documentary about her in December 2010, after the anthology reached the mark of 1.5 million, fueled interest in her work. It is worthy to note that sales of about 10,000 copies are considered a success for poetry anthologies in Japan.

What is her success recipe? She attributed it to her son, now in his mid-60s. She was encouraged to write poetry by her son, after her recurring back pain forced her to give up her life-ling hobby of classical Japanese dance.

This is another case in point that demonstrates well that adversity is not an end, but rather a turning point. As such, it reminds us when we are hit by adversity, do not give up, just like Toyo. But follow your heart and pick up something you really love. Just do it regardless of your age or any other justification which may caused you to give up. In this instance, wish Toyo long life.

I am very impressed with her success and that made me pen down this article so as to put it on my record and drives me to follow her footstep.

In this connection, I decided to continue to write articles in this blog. I hope my commitment can reach Miss Toyo who has touched my life so much, and I am really indebted to her.

And last but not least, I urged more of my readers to use her as their model. 

Thanks and warmest regards,

James Oh

two sense thought

Dear friends,

The email below touched me so much that I decided to share with you.

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:

'This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package.'

He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.

'She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion.

Well, I guess this is it.

He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.

He turned to me and said:

'Never save something for a special occasion.

Every day in your life is a special occasion'.

I still think those words changed my life.

Now I read more and clean less.

I sit on the settee without worrying about anything and just relax.

I spend more time with my family & friends and less at work.

Money is to be spent not saved.

I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through.

I no longer keep anything.

I use crystal glasses every day.

I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it.

I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to.

I go out with my friends whenever I want to rather than thinking I don't have the spare money or time.

The words 'Someday...' and ' One Day...' are fading away from my dictionary. 

If it's worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now...

I don't know what my friend's wife would have done if she knew she wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.

I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends.

She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels.  

She might have told everyone how much she loved them.

I'd like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favourite food.

It's these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time had come..

Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.

Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.

If you got this, it's because someone cares for you and because, probably, there's someone you care about.

If you're too busy to share this out with other people and you say to yourself that you will share it
'One of these days' , remember that 'One day' is far away... or might never come...

No matter if you're superstitious or not, spend some time reading it.
It holds useful messages for the soul.
