A Dog's Purpose

This v.meaningful article is from nmk:

  • Here is something each and every one of us can learn from!

    A Dog's Purpose? (From a 6-year-old)

    ... Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

    I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

    As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

    The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

    The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

    Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''

    Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

    He said, ''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?'' The Six-year-old continued,

    ''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''

    Live simply.

    Love generously.

    Care deeply.

    Speak kindly.

    Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

    When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

    Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

    Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

    Take naps.

    Stretch before rising.

    Run, romp, and play daily.

    Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

    Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

    On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

    On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

    When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

    Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

    Be loyal.

    Never pretend to be something you're not.

    If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

    When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING..."

Heartwarming Story ;p

Ex president Wee Kim Wee once said 'death is the leveler of all things'. Rich or poor lies flat one day. 

The following story is from nmk...btw, no offence to any lawyers reading this...maybe as u read the following, u can try substituting the word "lawyer" with some other word?

I'm spending alot of time at the yoga centre these days...well, the fact there's an eye candy yoga instructor does help to motivate ya ;p i can go there as a newbie, without knowing what to expect...he really does help me to stretch...n sometimes i cant help but burst out giggling....n he'll be like: r u crying or laughing? o.O

V.stylo mylo yoga mew mew

  1. "I received the following Email, good to share with you:

    This story warmed my heart, so I thought I would share it.

    One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.

    Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.

    He asked one man,

    ... "Why are you eating grass?" 

    "We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to

    eat grass." 

    "Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you,"

    the lawyer said. 

    "But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there,under that tree." 

    "Bring them along," the lawyer replied. 

    Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You may come with us, also." 

    The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said,

    "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!" 

    "Bring them all as well," the lawyer answered. 

    They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was. 

    Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said,
    "Sir, you are too kind." 

    "Thank you for taking all of us with you . 

    The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. 

    "You'll really love my place. 

    "The grass is almost a foot high." 

    you really didn't think there was such a thing as a heartwarming lawyer story...did you??"

    Brian says it's juz like u drinking poison n wishing the other person die!

    Nobody wanna b Plan B!


    Nobody ever sees my pain...

When I Grow Up...

Brought my mum to the studio to take pics...but she's rather camera shy...i ended up taking some pics ;p btw, no photoshop was done on the pics here ;p

Was reading the sunday which some real estate agent was reported to be earning $70k per month...well, how many real estate agents u personally know actually earn that amount? o.O" feel that the media could be glamorizing certain industries n professions =.=" professions such as nursing or construction dont seem to receive such coverage ya? somehow, i feel that an overly rosy pic of the real estate profession n industry is being painted when there r thousands n thousands of struggling real estate agents out there...well, the property companies n their agents do contribute a more than significant amount to the advertising revenue of the i'm not surprised by the glamorous coverage ;p anyway, there r some property agents out there who serve high net-worth clients n only rub shoulders with the rich n famous n lead a glamorous lifestyle, staying in posh districts...guess nobody will know how much money they spend juz to keep up the appearances n that they could have hardly any savings at all n cant close that many deals despite their efforts...well, that would be what i would term as "looking good on the surface only" ;p

My fren thought she saw me in a tv advertisement with Kym Ng...well, i dont recall meeting Kym Ng in person before...i tried asking my mum if i have some long-lost sister...has anyone seen the new Tiger advertisement featuring Kym Ng? it's Tiger pots, not Tiger beer or Tiger airways...i havent seen the advertisement myself...but if u have seen tell me if the gal in that advertisement really looks like me? thx!

We were discussing abt how some ponzi schemes might work...first, they will lure ppl in with an attractive payout scheme...then subsequently suck more ppl in with more funds to pay those who had invested their funds earlier...n it goes on n offence to anyone...this is juz to raise awareness n for education purposes only! this is not an inducement to invest in anything so pls consult ur banker or broker for financial advice =)

Question: If these self proclaimed financial gurus r so successful, do they still need to go around trying to sell products, saying how good their products r? Shouldn't these ppl be happily retired instead of doing sales?? 
Anyway, past performance is not indicative of future performance...sometimes they can paint a v.rosy pic to entice the greed in u n only highlight the possible gains without even mentioning the possible risks

Anyway, i only found out to my horror that the yoga centre which had pressurized me to sign up 3yrs yoga membership has such a dubious membership pricing scheme that i actually paid much more per month as compared to other members who signed up for 2yrs membership! -.-" frenz voiced their concerns cos it's still a big question mark if this yoga centre would still stay in operation before the expiry of my 3yr yoga membership! Lehman Bros was deemed to be too big to fail previously too! N we r talking abt a small little yoga centre on our little red dot? o.O" btw, the "Lemon Law" which is meant to protect consumers' interest would only kick in later in sep this yr...haiz =.= can u see how sour my face looks?

Life's full of irony. But I still appreciate the listening ear n humor. Thx nmk n everyone here who cares abt me!

Thanks for hanging around!

Literally kenna hot's less red now but the pain is still there...pic taken due to request by a certain mr. Sherwin who wanna show his concern for my watch =.="
Our conversation went like this:
Me: "Ok. Mr. Sherwin. U can show ur concern now"
Sherwin: "you have a very nice watch"
"and matching Sleeve"
Me: "my dirty watch asked me to thank u v. much for ur concern =)"
Sherwin: "Watch where have dirty? ... its white wad"
Me: "my sleeve says it prefers to hang out with another prettier watch..."
"it's white n dirty...look carefully la...u need to b more observant if u wanna show ur can do better than this..."
Sherwin: "okay lah... put some ice on the area... can already... no worries, you'll live, no need to amputate"
David: "hahahahha......"
Thousands: "looks like you are pretty accident prone type.. do take care."
Me: "cos i only have 2 hands but tried to open the door while balancing a flask of hot tea n a cup of hot coffee...both spilled...n the hot tea landed on my wrist...i have over-estimated my balancing abilities....i need to do more yoga or join a"

The burnt marks r still there even after a few days =.="
Our conversation continued as follows:
Sherwin: "who Abuse you?? !!!...."
Me: "The hot tea lor. N my watch says it feels v. Lucky to have escaped! -.-""
Sherwin: "it's okay... still no need to amputate..."
Me: "Thx for ur concern eh. Mr. Sherwin. Thx for ur highly informative insights eh" 
Sherwin: "Why that is very sweet of you miss Tono, I just saved you from being the One Arm Leechie...."
Me: "... My watch thx u for giving it another arm to hang onto. So sweet of u. Really!!"
Sherwin: "errr... your watch can go on my arm ^^"
Me: "My watch thx u for ur kind offer. But he's v. Faithful n prefers to hang around my arm only"
