My 300th Posts & The Last Day of March

Image
Wow... i didn't realize that this is my 300th post for this blog. I update this blog more often than my other blogs. My blog My Choice - Walking Through Nature was the first blog that i created and it is my main blog, but that blog for now only contains 314 posts. Not much stories on nature lately. It's okaylah...

Anyway, i have nothing interesting to post today but a sharing of one of my photo from my visit to Kaingaran, Tambunan last weekend. It was great weekend and He is there with us. Praise the Lord. Ta da.. Pic of my dearest friend and i.

Menstruation - Did You Know?

This topic is for women okay. But guys, if you wanna read, you are most welcome. You need to know about women as well especially for those that already have someone called woman (Your mum & sisters also women...he he he) in your life. No excuse, okay. I will not talk much actually, just want to share a little bit information here. Maybe this info you already know and aware of it, but just a little bit sharing okay. Here they are:
Menstruation can vary greatly from woman to woman and from month to month and still be normal. Generally, the length of menstrual cycle can fluctuate from 3 weeks to 5 weeks, without alarm. The average period lasts about 6 days, although some women may experience slightly shorter or longer periods and be perfectly normal. Always count the days in your cycle, the first day of your period as day one.Variations in the amount of menstrual flow and the timing of menstruation are quite normal in young women during the first few years following the onset of menst…

Motivation Wednesday - A Turkey & A BullShit

Image
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."


"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the trees. The next day, after eating more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

P.s: I feel not so in the mood of working today so, i google some funny motivational short story that may encouraged me. This one is funny but if we reflects in our life, we might not aware of thing like this did happen to some of us. So, better…

Earth Hour 2011

Image
About Earth Hour
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries/territories participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries/territories officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate a…

How do you tell the boss He's/ She's wrong?

by Joanna L. Krotz

1. Don't walk in mad to a meeting. Typically, it takes a while to discover that a new policy or initiative isn't working. Company changes won't occur without bumps and glitches. Make sure you've given the new policy a real chance before you act. Likewise, the impact of a wrong-headed policy doesn't happen overnight. It's cumulative. Effects ripple out and, little by little, everyone becomes increasingly impatient, irritable, overworked, or worse. Don't carry that volatile mixof unsettled and bad feelings into the meeting and simply vent. "If you are angry or frustrated and want to just blast your boss, before your meeting, talk things through with a friend or talk into a tape recorder," Gibson says. Play back the tape and listen to yourself. No doubt you'll want to develop more constructive ways to persuade the boss to reverse course.

2. Ask for permission. Before launching into your arguments, ask the boss if it's OK t…

Crystal Crafts

Last year on 15th October 2010, i was attended Sabah International Business Conference at 1Borneo, Kota Kinabalu. Besides that conference there were also expo going on for about a week at the ground floor.

We Make a Deal - STOP COMPLAINING AT WORK

This may sounds funny for some of you. But, my friend and i made a deal today. In my previous post A Promise to Myself, i did mention about COMPLAINING right? I want to reduce or overcome my bad habit which is complaining at work. Because for now, there seems to be nothing is right in my eyes in my office anymore.

Therefore, we make a deal about STOP COMPLAINING started from today. If any of us complaint, that person need to pay an amount of RM0.50 per complaint. So, we must be aware of our conversation and action that we take. Why only 50 cent? This is because, i complaint everyday and almost more than 5 times per day. I am that bad right? So, we started with a small amount first. To give ourself a warning.

What will happen with the money? He he he... We plan to have a good meal with that money just to reward ourself for our effort to overcome this bad habit. If the amount is big, that means we are still complaning about our work. But, if at the end of the month only a small amount…

Moments to Remember with Precious Friends

Image
I am sure each and evreyone of us have a great moments with our friends. Maybe it was when we are still in kindergarden, primary school, secondary school, college, university or when we are already working. No matter what we did together with our friends.

I am blessed because i have so many great friends from my school days until now. We separated follow our own paths but we still contacted each other. I must says that FACEBOOK did help us to get connected, a lot! To be aware of what happen to each others. That is the great things FB do to my friendship.

In photos above are my friends from my current workplace. This photo was taken after our theater performance during World Environment Day last year. Najjah is no more working with us, she already left to another workplace sometime in August last year. However, she did help us a lot to make our performance is a WOW that night. Actually most of our actor and actress in that theater were youths. We only help them with that performance.

A Promise to Myself

Thinking a lot about this after attended Leadership & Team Building Training on Thursday & Friday this week. Starting from tomorrow i made a promise to myself:

Started my day with a PRAYER, asking my God for His guidance and never leave me alone. I wanted to be MYSELF again, stay focus and believe in myself. I will always trying my best to be HAPPY, enjoying my work and be cheerful even there are loads of work in the office. I wanted to live my life joyfully.I will try my very best to always think POSITIVE. I like my friend's slogan "Bersangka Baik Saja"..I will greet my co-workers that i met every morning with a BIG SMILE. Hoping that they will have a great day too. I will trying hard to overcome my bad habit... PROCRASTINATION. Trying to finish all my task on time. No more delaying because it has put a lot of pressure on myself and then it leads to stress.  No more COMPLAINING. Just do things right according to what it is supposed to be done. Put my own standard…

Tired

Today was a tiring day for me. Since yesterday i was attending Leadership and Team Building Course. But i still need to prepare for my programme with youth tomorrow. Yesterday, after finish our course, my friend and i need to rush to get the paddy husks at Kg. Bangsal. Then with another friend i went to town, buying all the materials that we need for the programme. From one shop to another, looking for all the materials and at the end i was really exhausted.

Today, finish the training and we do another preparation at the office. Wah, only two of us doing the preparation.    I always like things to be well prepared but this time with only a very limited time, our preparation is a little bit messy. See, i still not finish with my power point presentation. Still need to do some touch up, here and there.

Now, i am tired and need some sleep first. I will try to wake up sometime at 3am to continue with my presentation. Till then yah! I need to rest, my brain won't work very well now....…

True Confession #4 - Do i like my current job?

Do i have to confess about this here? I think so... why? Because i need to write something that i can not say it out loud. Waaa... sounds a bit... what? Mysterious huh! Alright....here we goes!

To be HONEST... I am not really LIKE my current job because it is not my PASSION. It is not something that i really have heart to do. Half-hearted and the outcome is SO - SO... You know what? Before this i was so into adventurous things, discover new things, learn new things.. The more challenges, more i love to try it out. But now? Maybe i am getting older and maybe some of my brain cells is dead.. ha ha ha ha.. crazy!

Since i am not into this job, two years is like i was crawling like a baby. Struggling to understand and discover, what is actually this job is about. If i can measure percentage of my understanding, i can say that i only get about 40% or maybe less. Maybe i am just a slow learner! Huhuhu... (kesian my bos hiring me..)... Only a few part which related to nature, environmental aw…

PRAYER & FASTING - Part 3

The Power of Fasting

Richard LaFountain gives a good summary on the power of fasting. Detailed people like me would have written another book just to say the following:

What Is Fasting?
Fasting is going without food to pursue and/or focus on something more important.
1. Fasting helps subject our bodies to our spirits. (I Cor 9:27)
2. Fasting is disciplining the body, mind, and spirit. (Prov. 25:28)
3. Fasting is subordinating our flesh-desires to our spirit-desires. (Gal 5:17)
4. Fasting helps set the priorities in our lives. (Mt 6:33)
5. Fasting is longing after God. (Ps 63:1-2)

Why Should We Fast?
1. Honor God - Mt 6:16-18, Luke 2:37, Acts 13:2, Mt 5:6
2. Humble Yourself - 2 Chron 7:14-15
3. Discerning Healing - I Cor 11:30, James 5:13-18, Isaiah 59:1-2
4. Deliverance from Bondage - Mt 17:21, Is 58:6-9 (loose bands of wickedness)
5. Revelation - God’s vision and will - Dan 9:3, 20-21, Dan 10:2-10, 12-13
6. Revival - personal and corporate - Acts 1:4, 14 / 2:16-21, Joel 2:12-18
7. Repe…

PRAYER & FASTING - PART 2

How to Fast

There’re no rules on fasting periods. One can set apart a day every week without food and water. Or she can set three days aside every month to recondition her sensitivity to God. Water can be taken in a three day fast though it’s possible to do without it up to three days. Beyond three days water is essential for your body.

There is a story of one believer who fasted for 40 days without drinking water. He died on the fortieth day. He’s no doubt heaven-destined and probably had victories over matters he fasted for. However he went too soon for lack of knowledge on appropriate fasting principles. A prolonged fast from 4 days to 40 days needs water and probably a slice or two of bread (or three) per day.

Fasting beyond 40 days is not biblical. It’s not a sin to fast over 40 days but it’s a health risk. There is no scriptural record of anyone fasting beyond 40 days. This should be a medical health alarm because beyond 40 days physical health is likely to start deteriorating. …

PRAYER AND FASTING - Part 1

Prayer and Fasting -Sowing to the SpiritFasting is probably the greatest avenue for enabling us be sensitive and responsive to the Spirit of God. God is always speaking to us in one way or another. However, only those who are sensitive and responsive enough to him can effectively hear him.

Our Lord Jesus said fasting would be necessary for his disciples after he ascended. “The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast,” (Matthew 9:15)

The early disciples remembered the words of their master and thus they made fasting vital. The outstanding work God accomplished through them speaks for itself. They could easily hear God speak to them in their moments of fasting. “While they were worshipping and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set a part for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them,’ ” (Acts 13:2). Thus the ministry of Paul started after a period of fasting and praying. “So after they fasted and prayed, they placed their hands …

Aerobic 1st Class

Only three of us but it was quite fun. Move and shake our body for an hour. Actually this activity is just for fun and it is only for us, single ladies. Since i am still not confident to become our group instructor, then we just make ourselves familiar with the music and moves our body. The most important thing is to let our body sweating. He he he..

There are two other groups of ladies that having their aerobic class too. The space is very small and only can occupied about 15-20 people per sessions. These two groups, they have their own leader aka instructor. But i did not know how they conduct their class. Okay, nevermind, i think they are doing great.

So, our next class will be next week on Tuesday. I need to work on the choreograph and hoping that more of our friends attend our next class. This is FUN!!!

Mini Projek Belia - Takakura Home Method (Baja Kompos)

Perjumpaan belia bulan lalu tidak sukses dan amat mengecewakan saya. Ada rasa seperti ingin putus asa saja tapi ada beberapa komen membina daripada rakan-rakan blogger yang mengembalikan semula semangat saya. Setelah berfikir dan cuba untuk merancang sesuatu supaya para belia dapat memperoleh ilmu baru dan pengalaman baru sewaktu cuti sekolah pada bulan Mac ini, saya mencari info di internet berkaitain dengan baja kompos.

Pada 2hb yang lalu jabatan kami telah bekerjasama dengan Jabatan Pertanian Daerah, membuat demonstrasi Kempen Bumi Hijau di kawasan perumahan SFI. Sambutan amat menggalakkan daripada penghuni perumahan di mana seramai lebih kurang 80 orang telah hadir. Melihat kepada situasi ini, saya merasakan para belia boleh membuat sesuatu kerana permintaan untuk mendapatkan baja organik akan mengingkat daripada para peserta Kempen Bumi Hijau ini.

Oleh itu, saya bercadang untuk membuat percubaan membuat baja kompos Takakura Home Method bersama dengan Kumpulan Belia ini. Berjaya …

Aerobic Dance Class

Image
I got a problem. Suddenly i feel that i don't know what to do? We get the room for two days every week, on Tuesday and Thursday for an hour each day. My problem is, i am not confident that i can conduct the class. Hmm... lack of confident because it has been more than two years i didn't join or practice my aerobic steps.

Now, i am not sure i can make it or not. It was lucky that the class is only for me and a few of my friends. If it is open for others then i have to work hard finding steps to be used.

To find steps i search throughout the websites and found some of that interesting but still, i am not sure if i can follow it through. But, boleh2lah mengkali ni. This is two of video that i was attracted to... Warm up and cooling down steps for Zumba..




Till then!
