Today's the Day.. 31st December 2009

Yes! This is it! Today's the last day for the year 2009! So, let's usher in the New Year 2010 with this thought in mind...Imagine a good way to start afresh this new year in re-defining the approach of looking at the inter-dependency of all beings in terms of Affinity in our community and our relationship with one another.
May each moment of the New Year give you and your dear ones real happiness, real peace and real harmony.

Happy New Year2010!

More challenging times ahead!

Choices and Decisions

`The positive energy vibrations in you enable you to evaluate, make and decide on the choices and decisions made. Ultimately, it will lead you to live a happier and a more meaningful life! Remember, you are blessed with the amazing power to tap this inner power within!!'...Yam TW

"What's happening?" I repeatedly asked myself when I got admitted into a hospital at Kunming, China, following a bout of diarrhoea, and blurry vision. The next morning, I woke up and was not able to see and it was the scariest moment in my life. I was totally confused not knowing if I could ever see again and unsure about my health problems then. Yes, it was in early January 2008, almost 2 years ago, that my life changed and so did my wife's. I could vividly remember in minute details those turbulent, emotional turmoil that gripped my life uninvited.

Endless negative thoughts constantly streamed through my mind at unbelievable rapid pace. I was not able to see but only hearing voices and I was in a state of total confusion, shock and despair! The emotional support from my family was second to none, especially my wife Hong and children. They were the most important factors that really helped me crossed the thin line separating life and the yonder. I knew then that I was not alone 'fighting the war' but I had my family with me going through the thick and thin of the new dark world. They were constantly by my side providing the moral and the emotional support. My thoughts started to shift focus, from myself to my family. I soon realised that I had to make a choice - to pick up the pieces and move forward or wallow in self pity and depression. More importantly, I had to decide to ease the pain and sufferings my family was going through, perhaps, the emotional pain was much worse than my own. I had to do something about it and started to think about the options, choices, decisions, etc. It was fortunate indeed that I was able to dig into my inner strength and made the right choices and decisions that enabled me to accept and come to terms with life.. it was indeed a challenging task to 'cross the barrier' and I had not looked back since. Soon, it will be two years since I last saw myself and my family. There is the one wish that I shall continue to make. This wishful thinking too, will stay forever etched permanently in my mind. Missed seeing the dogs too!

Making choices and decisions play an important role in our daily lives especially in mine. The power to happiness, the power to choose and decide on the new type of living skills, to adopt the assistive ICT skills, the freedom to socialise and interact with and among old and new friends, are among the wonderful aspects of life made possible thru' the process of making choices and decisions . So, I am glad that I was able to discover and tap into this power within myself. This certainly has helped me in providing the courage, the road maps and the inspirations to march on in life with positive strides.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010!

'Tis the time of year to say bye-bye to year 2009 and Hello to year 2010! We will again, be eagerly looking forward to another new year with much enthusiasm and vigour. Another new blank fresh page to 'write down' passionately the Do's and the Don'ts, planning and hoping for improvements in our lives, right the deeds/actions of any wrong doings that were part of some shortcomings and putting our lives, etc, into better perspective. A better year ahead! Nevertheless, and without any doubts, it is always good and strongly encouraged to push ahead with great positive attitudes and strides, caution too must be exercised in doing so. The thoughts, having taken into consideration the critical factors, that will determine our future needs, requirements and 'impossible dreams' that we were told to dream at times. We are matured enough to be able to prioritise, set goals and more importantly, know what we want in life after all these years of life experiences.

It is wise, too, to take some minutes to sit back and reflect about the events of the current year and perhaps, this will help us to take stock of what we had achieved, what we need to improve and really want in the future, to strive for in the coming year and the years ahead. Do remember not to neglect our health, family and friendship as these are nature's ingredients, enabling us to live a happy and meaningful life..

On this note, I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the MAB Cyber Club AJK members, the many 'unsung heroes/volunteers, and all the members, for their undivided support and the keen participation. Without these support, MABCC would not have been able to carry out successfully the planned activities during the course of the current year. Recognising too, the needs to meet and achieve the set objectives and goals, lots of hard work from all are still required over the next year or so.

Happy holidays to all!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010!

More challenging times ahead, 2010 and forward!
