I hope you guys enjoy this song too. Have time to reflects and listen with your heart. Have a good new day today! God bless!

The beautiful video music:


The beautiful lyrics:

Every evening sky, an invitation To trace the patterned stars And early in July, a celebration For freedom that is ours And I notice You In children’s games In those who watch them from the shade Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder You are summer
And even when the trees have just surrendered To the harvest time Forfeiting their leaves in late September And sending us inside Still I notice You when change begins And I am braced for colder winds I will offer thanks for what has been and was to come You are autumn
And everything in time and under heaven Finally falls asleep Wrapped in blankets white, all creation Shivers underneath …

People & Life

Image
All these scenarios were captured from several of my visits to a few Murut villages at Ulu Tomani, Tenom, Sabah. Quite interesting community and sometimes makes me wondering on the way they make their living. Bikin pusing kepala juga working with this group of people. But still i feel blessed because God gave me this opportunity to met more of His people on this earth. To see more of characters of people that i can reflects on how i make my own living. On how i live my life. Making me grateful of what God gave me for these almost 30 years of my life. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ!
P/s: If it is not because of my Faith in Christ, i think i already quit from this job but God always make a way for me when i feel down and thinking of i can not stand for it anymore. He always there when i need Him the most and i am doing this because He loves me very much. In return i have to do something for His people, to love Jesus back. I love you Jesus. Amen.

With Purpose

 Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny--he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally--you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.

Stop the Bully On Sabah & Sarawak

I received this email from a friend. Something to read. I don't know who is the writer but if you are Sarawakian and Sabahan, this is something to read. Happy Reading!!


MySinchew 2010-09-14

The time has come for Sabah to take control of her destiny. No more bully by the federal!.

The east Malaysian enigma.

I was born on the 2nd of August 1963 in a country called the Federation of Malaya. Six weeks later, on 16th September, the federation along with Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore merged to form Malaysia. A Malayan at birth, I then became a Malaysian. The date 16th September 1963 marked a significant transition. Indeed, there is a number of crucial differences between “Malaya” and “Malaysia”. While we often talk about the ‘social contract’— the unwritten agreement negotiated by our Independence-era leaders — we should also remember the terms upon which Sabah and Sarawak joined with Malaya to form Malaysia.

Basically, these states (along with Singapore, briefly) were persuaded to join …

A Burning Lamp

To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it. -- Blessed Teresa of Calcutta 
P.s: My reflection for today, as long as i persevere in my prayer and keep on my heart open for Lord Jesus to work within me without close it again, the beautiful friendship with Him will never fade, will never end. Reading His Holy Words and continue shared His love with people i met is the oil that i need to put in the lamp so that the light of Jesus in my life will never fade or off. Keep on burning allowing the Holy Spirit to work in my life. Thank God for a beautiful Eucharistic Mass today. God bless us all and Peace to the World!! Love, Little Rose

ROAR For the Tigers

Image
I have been joining YouthSays 12 months ago. Wow..a year ago but i did not active in this site. With all the campaigns and rewarded it's offers. I get so many emails and notifications from Yuna from YouthSays about all these campaigns. So, here i found one of the campaign that i feel like to support it though. It is about the cause that created by World Wildlife Fund - Malaysia. I think they have a few of programme like Tx2 (WWF's Tx2 campaign aims to put in place the necessary conditions to double the wild tiger population by the next Year of the Tiger in 2022)and a lot more on awareness of the current status of tigers in the world. 


So, YouthSays are promoting one of the initiatives called ROAR For the Tigers. This is a little bit info that they provide for this campaign. 


In the last 10 years we have lost almost half of all wild tigers. Tigers are in deep trouble and they need your help!No petitions need to be signed, we just need your ROARING voice to spread awareness!Just a…

Boring weekend because of tiring day yesterday. A long journey Sipitang-Kemabong-Sipitang-KK-Sipitang....so, get headache because of rain last night in Sipitang. Woke up and sleep again. Thought of joining ALPHA seminar at church but just can't do it.

What So Special About Today? 20.10.2010

Not so much special things happen. The best thing so far for today is, i am not having problem with sleepy mode in the office today. I didn't take my 3 in 1 coffee but only Kopi "O". Good day for that.

Went back home and working on my little garden. Aiyah, my garden is so messy now. The weeds and grass is higher than some of the veggies. Work on it till dark, but still can not finish it all. Hope i can continue working on it tomorrow. Lady fingers seems to be grow well but need to water it everyday because the weather is very hot now.

Just after i finish my gardening and watering the plants, i saw Munah is sitting not far from me. I didn't notice that she was observing me doing my work in the dark. So, after washing my hand i played with her for a while. She is not that active like before and not so naughty like before. She seems to be more quite now. But. still we play a little bit before i ask her to go back home and i am done too.

That's all for the day of 20.…

Sleepy Mode - In Office?

I have a problem. This problem is not new for me. It started since i am in schools. Secondary schools i think because in primary i didn't face this problem. Aiyah! I easily fall asleep. Anywhere. That is my problem. So embarrassing sometimes but i just can't help it. My eyes just want to rest for a while.. he he he...

This problem i carry through till now, till i am working. What should i do ah? Need help. :"(...

From my own observation, there are a few factors that makes this sleepy things become more serious.

Not enough sleep especially when i am too much travel and my body get tired. Not enough rest also lah bah tu. Too much sugar intake. This must be because of my addiction to coffee. I took three times 3 in 1 coffee everyday.. Hmmmph...No exercise. Aiyah... it has been a while i didn't do any sports. Hmm...no woner i become so malas now. Duh!
So, that's is what i think. How to overcome this? Need to do some experiment first ya. Will see if i can make any impro…

Beauty

People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.

P.s: We are all beautiful creations of God. Thanks be to God the most high.

Fire

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another.  It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.

Igan River Our Source of Life - Water is Life

In my previous post I did mentioned about the disaster in Rajang River and its tributary, Igan River. My village is along the Igan River. I think most of you know about the tragedy of Rajang River. The news appear in most of the newspaper local and internationally. I just want to share a few things about my village and how important is the Igan River for us living there.

Just a brief background about my village. My village is named Kampung Kebuaw based on the name of Kebuaw River. The people living here is mostly Melanau (Christian). The population maybe around 500 people (just my random estimation, for correct one, ask the District Office of Dalat/Daro??). Our village has NO ELECTRICITY SUPPLY, NO CLEAN WATER SUPPLY, NO ROAD (whether gravel road or asphalt road). You can see that three of the most important basic necessities are not provided by Sarawak government to our village (WHY????? I am not sure what is the main problem of the rural area development in our area – not listed in …

Reminder

Image
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn. -- Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
P.s: A good reminder for ourself. Sometimes if only by words, we tend to forget easily but if someone teach us and get us involved that we learnt and never forget. And another good one is, if we make mistakes and we learnt well from it, "Learn from mistakes".

My Presentation & Disaster at Batang Rajang/Igan

Image
Sorry for no update on what is actually happen after my presentation. A group of about 28 students from UMS were visiting us with three of UMS staffs. One lecturer was leading this group.

I was asks by my boss to do presentation on Ecosystem Management & Conservation. Phewww!!! This is actually one of the course taken by Conservation Biology students in UMS for third year and final semester. I've taken it too during my study in UMS. Now, i have to tell these group of students on how our company practice contribute to ecosystem management & conservation. Quite tough but since this company is following the standards for forest certification so there were not that difficult for me to explain to them.

However, i was stunt because just a day before my presentation i was tagged by my friend in one of his photo. This photo was showing Batang Rajang/ Rajang River is jammed because of logs and wood debris. It's moving down river until reaching my kampong at Batang Igan/ Igan Ri…

Aerobic Dance

Feel like want to do some aerobic dance but don't know where and how. At last search online video from You Tube and i get some ideas. I really miss my old days back to 2007-2008 in Bintulu where my friend and I keep on attending aerobic class at D'Oasis. When i am moving to this new work place, they have aerobic group but it's too many people attended it and most of them are housewives. Never mind, here is some videos that i found that i may want to follow it for my own aerobic at home.. ha ha ha.. at last i decided to do it by myself at home. Learn how to do some steps and who knows i can make another aerobic groups for single working ladies. Okay, here is some of my selections:

Preparing For My Second Presentation

Image
Jarang-jarang bah aku tok molah presentation. Sejak ku kerja sitok rasanya baru sekali aku polah presentation tapi ya untuk staff kedirik jak. Nok kali tok aku kena molah presentation untuk orang luar (UMS students). Ya la palak ku rasa bengong jak, lack of confident bah kali aku tok. Dengan tajuk nok bombastic la juak, dah la ku rasa aku tok macam 'retired conservationist' dah. Setahun lebih dah ku tinggalkan bidang kesukaan ku tok and memilih untuk jadi 'kuli orang kampung'. He he he... Nok ney best gik? Duak2 keja tok pun ada thrillnya kedirik. Cabaran nang sik sama tapi tahap gaban sibuk nya nang lebih kurang jak.

Kenak ada gambar di sebelah ya? Sebab, aku mun dah stress molah keja mesti maok minum kopi. Seolah2 kopi ya booster kepada idea la konon. Tapi masalahnya, mala jak ku rasa dehidrated after ku minum kopi, mesti mok minum air kosong sekurang2nya secawan or dua cawan after ku minum kopi.

Take 5 -- Coffee Time

Image
I need a 15 minutes break. Need to sip my favourite coffee, Old Town White Coffee.

My brain can't think of what else to put in this presentation. It is a 3 hours talk and can i just talk nonsense? Ha ha ha... Nope, can not do that. The information must be based on the correct facts. Can't just simply doing it for the sake to finish it quick. Okay... enough mumbling here, need to continue with my work and keep on enjoying my coffee. How about you? (",)

P/s: Coffee Girl & O.l.i.v.e, come let's drink!!

Overflow

Let the CHRIST LOVE overflow in you;  share it with people most in need of it. 
-- Little Rose
P/s: Yesterday i am a little bit upset when i am arriving home after spend almost my whole day convincing kampong people to keep on working hard to make their socio-economic (handicraft) group success. Then, this morning i realize that, if i let the LOVE of CHRIST overflow in me like the water overflow from the glass, i must have so much love to be shared with people that i met each and everyday of my life journey. Serve with love and the joy will come back to me. Praise the Lord for always walk with me.

My Little Garden

Image
I have been working on my little garden behind my house since i moved to this house. I planted a few types of veggies but not growing well. It must be because of the soil condition that not suitable for planting veggies. So, i decided to bought soils from my friend's Dad. After using that soil, some of my plants growing quite well. Here is some photos that i took. Just to share.



 Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. -- Lindley Karstens

Pepatah atau Perumpamaan?

Tetiba ja saya teringat pertemuan saya dengan pak cik yang buat katering makanan di Tenom minggu lalu. Sorry, entri kali ni saya mau pakai bahasa rojak. Pedulik la, 1Malaysia juga kan. Paham nda paham pa boleh buatla kan. Kasi paham ja.

Mau dijadikan cerita, pada mulanya saya memang tidak tau siapa yang saya boleh hubungi untuk membekalkan makanan bagi mesyuarat yang akan kami jalankan di Tenom. Bingung sudah ni tapi tetiba teringat yang dulu pernah Pusat Kebudayaan Tenom, Pulong pernah bagi saya satu quotation. Check balik so, jumpala ni katerer namanya Mekar Abadi Enterprise. Kebetulan kami memang pegi Tomani, menyinggah la di Tenom and mencari la tuan punya ni katering. Okay, kasi pindik ja la ni cerita k.

Dia jemput la kami pergi ke rumah dia sebab dia berurus niaga direct dari rumah. Kami pun interview la dia sebab perniagaan dia yang pada mulanya hanya kecil-kecilan tapi akhirnya dia membekalkan makanan pada ramai orang termasuk function2 yang melibatkan YB dan menteri2 sekalia…

St. Francis of Assisi Feast Day

Image
The prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;


O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.


For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Today is the feast day for St. Francis of Assisi. I am a conservationist, ecologist (i may say) and lover of animals and nature so St. Francis is one of my favorite saints because he is the patron of animals, merchants and ecology. Since today is his feast day i would like to share some of his story and biography. Just to make he known to more people (i know, he is already well-known but maybe some of us not sure about his life). The article here is adapted fro…

I wish i can write everything here. I wish i can tell everyone here. I wish i can talk to someone to get over it. But i just can't. What should i do? Who should i talk to?

Why i feel so difficult now? Everything seems to be not right... Am i thinking too much again? Arghh... why should i mumbling here? Talking nonsense, i think.

Mok jak rasa ngerepak tapi sik tauk giney mok express perasaan time tok koh. Giney tok? Konon dolok mok kelaka benda nok inspired people dalam blog tok. Last2, key tempat ku ngerepak juak akhirnya.
