Nuffnang Blog Awards, Here I come

I am one of the thousand bloggers around Asia-Pacific who wish to win for the exclusive invite for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards.

I have a lot of reasons why I want to attend this event but here are my top 3 on the list.

1. First Year, First Time. This is my first year in the world of blogging. If I have given a chance to win this invitation this could be my first time to attend a blogging event. It is not just an event it is an International events that happen once every year only. Just imagine how big this event which is truly worth the prize.

2. To Share and To Learn. Since this event will cater bloggers from different Asian countries I can meet new blogger friends and we can share our different stories and experiences. Maybe I can learn from them and motivates me more to blog.

3. Support. I want to attend to support fellow bloggers in this Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011. This event is to honour the best of the best bloggers around Asian-Pacific and I want to support them personally.

Celebrating Deepavali in KL

This is my second time to celebrate a Deepavali or also known as Depawali / Dewali here in KL. My Indian colleagues always invited me to their home and celebrate it with his family. Since Deepavali here in Malaysia is a national holiday which fall every 26 of October every year,  I can join them and I want to observe how they celebrate the Deepavali. I think Deepavali is celebrated like how we celebrate Christmas.

Deepavali Festival is one of the most important feasts for Hindus. It is also known as Festival of Lights which is the celebration of victory of good over the evil.
Deepavali Lanterns from wikipedia.

I ask my Indian friend what was Deepavali or Dewali means to him. This is what he says Deepavali means a lot to me and I enjoy this festival the most of my childhood days. It’s like a festival of sweets as we prepare and eat different varieties of Indian sweets. Wearing new clothes and fresh new look to our home as we clean it and put a new curtains and new bed sheets. We have also sharing gifts. We buy gold, silver, or steel as this is best time to buy those things.”

Happy DEEPAVALI to all!!

Finding our way again: Book Review

This is my first time for a book review. Entitled “Finding our way again” by Brian Mclaren. I find it interesting that is why I request it from booksneeze.
After reading “Finding our way again” realized me that I need a constant change to desire for a deeper devotion to God. Maybe I am one of those Christian that practices an old and traditional prayer. In this book, we will teach us to have a spiritual discipline and go back to Abraham’s time and transform us to spiritual sojourn.
In the first chapter,  Mclaren discuss the purpose of this book as  Jesus followers we need to rediscover our faith as a way of life. He shares a lot of experiences for us to inspire and overview the spiritual practices of the believers of Jesus Christ.
Sometimes, we Christians are experimenting and very eager to discover a new way how to follow Christ. But I learned in this book that there is no need to discover a new way of following Christ but instead just follow Jesus Christ.
I definitely get the other book and continue reading the other 6 series of Mclaren. 

Learning Bahasa Melayu to Tagalog and English Part 2

After my article about Learning Bahasa Melayu to Tagalog and English I can say that I am more interested now to study their language and learn it. Maybe it could help me more to communicate with local people here in Malaysia.

Now in this part of translation is another basic word. Basic is very important to us to learn. All of us went through in the basic way before jumping on the advance words right?

Here we go…

Bahasa    Melayu

Thank You

Do you find it hard? I hope not! For me it quite easy as some few words are sounds like of the Tagalog words. Like masuk – pasok. And some words are also used in southern part of the Philippines, like the word Sini and Ini.

Truthful and Honest

Truth is the most powerful weapon in the world and this world very much needs honest people. But unfortunately, nowadays truth is far from its existence. Lies and liars are the rulers in this evil world that were living in. This could be a happy and a peaceful world if the truth rules over lies in this present time. Some says that there's no justice for the poor. It gets harder and harder to think that people live with much lies. Realizing all these things that justice is not being served fairly, makes us more aggressive to ask ourselves how evil the world is.

Far too many have the very false notion that being honest is out of style and it is the same as being a simpleton or a foolish person. So, it follows that the truthful person becomes rather the exception. Fortunately however, this is not the opinion of those who respect charity and justice.

Those who think they can be justified in lying when it's to their favor are plain cowards; right is right even if the whole world is wrong and wrong is wrong even if the whole world is right. If you spent as much time being honest about what's not right in your life as you do covering it up, you'd have a lot more energy for what is right in your life.

Therefore, if you are true to yourself then you can't help being true to God. Truth is to know yourself and to know God. While you live, tell the truth and shame the evil for the greatest homage you can pay to truth is to use it.

Learning Bahasa Melayu to Tagalog and English

Since I am working in a foreign land of Malaysia, learning their language, culture and belief was the first thing that came in my mind. I need to know it as part of my adopting survival and working here in their country.  Now, in my two years here I can say that I almost adopt their culture and little by little I learn some words of Bahasa Malaysia or Bahasa Melayu.

How to Accept Failure?

There are so many times in my life that I feel that I failed, especially in my career and in my career path. Thanks to my family that keeps motivating me to go on.

Failure is a state of having failed to attain an object, becoming insolvent or failing to achieve success.How are we going to deal with failure?
