Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

By faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

-- Hebrews 11 :1,3

i am lost for words ...

today, read in the papers, that there is this private banker from a large bank here who prepaid HK$120million for 8 years of unlimited latin dancing classes and competition ......... geeee ..... talk about being in different worlds ....... i guess HK$120million is like HK$1200 (SGD200+) to some people ..... hehehehe

and anywayz, who prepays for something 8 years in advance ?? it's quite unimaginable to me .... i mean i am not sure my "interest" will last so long in something u know ..... but, maybe it's juz me ???

now, she's in some dispute over the prepaid sum and suing the instructor for monies back.

come to think of it, the instructor also amazing rite , earn so much teaching latin dancing???

Investing and Timing

Thought i'd like to share this "old" article which was sent to me ...... kind of put things in perspective during this period of "market decline" isn't it? very interesting that market cycles remain more or less similar through the years.

Have no idea when this finance article was written, but apparently in the 80s???

And i guess, to everyone, what time the clock tells also abit different ..... say u think it's between 3pm-4pm, but 3.01pm and 3.59pm great difference rite!! and some more, this clock, one really doesn't know how long one hour lasts.......hehehehe.

but heyz ..... that's where lots of hardwork and guts can help ???

anywayz, whatever time it is now ...... i juz hope dinner time comes soon ;p

Black rain

today's a rainy day -- the signal is black rain signal -- which should mean that if u are at a safe place, you should stay there ...... but too bad, the signal came up late morning, which means most people at work liao. If the signal was hoisted earlier say 8am ........ hehehe, then those working can stay at home ...... hehehehe ........ i am sure they would like that!!!

but then, this black rain -- looks like normal rain to me here leh ....... maybe other parts of hkg experiencing heavy downpour .....

but good weather to sleep in ;)

TGIGOTOS

a new acronym i learnt today . . . . hahaha . . . and for a moment, i actually thought there's such a word when it was mentioned to me : "TGIGOTOS Syndrome" ..... i even googled it.

The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side -- isn't that a perennial problem for most people? Why is it so difficult to be content? To enjoy what one is doing without thinking of the alternative possibilities? That maybe, things could be better??

It's strange -- but were we brought up this way?? From young, how many times have we heard parents commented that the children's results could have been better? if only they had not been so careless, so lazy whatever. That so and so child's is doing better. That so and so can play the piano better/run faster/swim better whatever. As as the child grows up and enters adulthood ..... who doesn't desire a "better" job ? a bigger car? bigger apt? at work, thoughts such as so and so is promoted, why not me?? this and that would have fleeted by our minds many times .......

of course, not everyone is affected by such. some frens i know are very firmly rooted and praise God for that!! but such thoughts, the Deceiver knows, is an easy tool to cause one to be distracted and discontented. Everyone has a place and role in today's society. The trouble starts when we try to take another's place and role. Am i getting too cheeem here?? i think so! cos i also not sure what i am talking about now .......

but was reminded once again that so important is this issue, that God had to address it in the bible : Godliness with contentment is great gain. Such an easy statement to read. Such a difficult statement to live out.

I think lots of people are searching for true joy, but in the search, we replace joy with happiness cos we think : if only we could hv this, we could do that, we will be happier.

But happiness is a function of situations, but joy, true joy, is not reliant on our situations. Yes, we want to be happy. but more importantly, i think, it is to have the joy that no one/no situation can take away from us. Even when things are going wrong, not going our way, we can still have joy -- cos true joy is found in God alone and when we go to him with our prayers, needs, sorrows, happiness whatever, He takes it upon his shoulders and lifts us up when we are down. And the realisation that He, who makes heaven and earth, loves us unconditionally.

That one day, we will see Him face to face in heaven. It's a matter of time.
