Value of a man

How do you value a man?
By the amount of money he has in the bank?
To me, it looks increasingly to be so...
What happened to a man's character?
Is that not worth anything any more?
What about hard work?
Or commitment?
Or tolerance?
What is shaping us to be so "realistic"?
Where "if we don't have money, we also cannot be happy cos we will always be arguing about money".

God, what is the true value of a man?
Is this true anymore?
" ...give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.

Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, 'Who is the LORD ?'
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonour the name of my God."

International Bank Konon

Went with my dearest to carry out my Santa Claus rounds...
Withdrew money from my piggy Maybank, no problem.
Gave money to a poor, poor bank in need for me to support it, no problem.
Gave money to a telco company in needing my money to feed its employees, no problem.
Went next to Citibank, international bank, got problem!!!
They dared to tell us the deadline for paying our bills is end of the month.
They dared call me up for not paying (I was late this month ler!).
They dared to charge me extra money for late payment.
They also dared to shutdown 3 out of 5 cash deposit machines...
and left the other 2 set at problematic mode...
spitting out our money cos we were foolish enough to fold it...
Btw, I din fold mine...
So I spent more than 5 minutes waiting...
another 5 minutes queuing in another line cos the 1st machine was spitting out the cash 2 hapless customers was trying to feed RM50 notes for 5 minutes...
and just less than 1 minute for me to donate my money to them...
BECAUSE I DIN FOLD MINE!!!
Teruklah Citibank...
If you know most people will pay at the month end after getting our pay...
make sure all machines are working la...
or else make sure you educate all the people you were so kind to saddle your credit cards on them with.
Adoi...

Breath in deep... count to zero... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,..

Sighs...

There is one word that should only be used to describe God and nothing else in existence...

It rained last night...

and this morning too...
Praise be to God for bringing the rain.
At least the haze has cleared slightly.
Thank you, Father.

Unconditional love

Unconditional love is never based upon the merit of the one receiving it...
but upon the merit of the one giving it
- a quote from Sunday' s message by Jack Frost.

Ain't that the truth?

God is near

Dear God,
I am glad that I can run to your loving arms whenever I am afraid,
knowing that I will be safe there.
Sometimes things around me are so uncertain,
yet you are my safe refuge.
I am so thankful that you will always be there for me Father.
Amen.

Drop him like a hot potato

England needs to drop Frank Lampard,
and do it very, very quickly...

Money

Su Yin needs a job,
and I need money.
Now, if only I can convince Bill Gates to donate to my fund...
Oh, I'm not greedy.
$10 million is a mere pittance to him...

Right? :)

Ramblings part 051006

Star fruit and garlic is not a good combination... :P

Life less complicated

Sometimes I wish things are less complicated.
but if things were, then probably I'll be dead by now... :/

Get up

Instead of wallowing on my own self-pity and troubles, I will focus on the Lord.
Give Him my burden in exchange for His... which is to love and save the lost.
I have strayed too far from Him... no wonder I have dried up so much inside me.

Burden

Sometimes the physical weight can be shed...
but the weight on your heart may be the hardest to lift and get rid of...

Addict

Hello.
My name is Danny Chen,
and I am a Wikipedia addict.

Misery

This has got to be the most miserable day of my life.
I threw away a most precious gift in a fit of carelessness.
Now I guess I'll have to suffer the consequences of my actions/inactions.
