Know what and why you believe...

I just heard a comment from a colleague of mine that she knows almost nothing about her Catholic faith.
I don't know about you but I thought your faith/religion is central in guiding your moral principles.
If not, what is it that drives you on day by day?
Do you know what you believe and why you believe what you believe?
Confused? Not me.

Things I must have on my computer

This is a list, by no means comprehensive, of software I'd install on my computer and they were what I installed when I got my laptop's HDD up and going again after it crashed last Tuesday.

Here goes:
  1. Windows XP (have to lah... no OS, no computer).
  2. NOD32 - the 2nd thing I install, by far the best anti-virus program I've ever used.
  3. TweakUI - minor tweaks here and there makes my computing experience more enjoyable.
  4. MS Office - need to work, so I need to have this.
  5. CCCP - this codec pack is essential for viewing anything on the comp. There are plenty of codec packs out there but this is my personal choice.
  6. Spybot/Ad-aware - either one of this is sufficient, I prefer Spybot cos it is more proactive in checking for spyware.
  7. Spyware Blaster - keeps out spyware before it gets to you. Works together with Spybot/Ad-aware.
  8. WMP 10/Realplayer/Winamp - for my listening pleasure. WMP10 I like cos it allows you to add the currently playing item into the playlist, thus useful for my radio listening habits.
  9. Foxit Reader - CPU-friendly alternative to Adobe reader, works just as well.
  10. uTorrent - must have for downloading stuff
This list will continue to grow :)

Har Har...

Silly me.

I thought no one actually reads my blog until I crashed my computer and had to restore some of my bookmarks.
I realised that the Haloscan comments had not been working very well and so I decided to access my account to check and guess what?
I found out that I had not moderated any comments all the time I had my blog!
Sighs... :P
No wonder my blog is so quiet!

Thanks to all who responded. I will try and keep this blog alive for you ok? :)

My laptop HDD died on me yesterday morning.
I lost all my personal files, work files, pictures, photos, music and audio files. Everything!

Then I bought a new HDD last night = RM230
There goes my savings... :(

Only got it up and going at 2.30am this morning.
So sleepy now.

What to do... Murphy likes me... :(
but I thank God for His strength and peace.
I din feel panicky... a little sad, yes, but not panicky...

Its okla... At least I can use my computer again. :/

Its my dearest's birthday today...

So I guess its only appropriate for me to say:
Happy Birthday, sweetheart!

May you continue to grow ever more beautiful, within and without, than you already are this year.

Have a great year ahead and may God's promises to you all come true to you at its appointed time as you allow Him to guide your every step.

I love you! :)

He wants us to show compassion to others instead." - Father Gregory J. Boyle.

Exiled gripe

I just watched the made-in-HK movie Exiled with my long suffering dearest last night... and I must say Johnnie To has done it again.

A pure, guy-movie, it has everything you want in such a movie:
COOL guys carrying COOL guns firing them off in a COOL but realistic way.

Not much dialogue but most of what needed to be said was said without words...


Only ONE gripe though...
I noticed that in some scenes, the guns the guys were packing changed from one scene to another...
Come on Johnnie, for such a good movie, you could have just ensured some consistency in your props! :P

Ok, that's all... for now... KA-POW!

Sometimes we as Christians are not very sensitive to other people's feelings.

I am guilty of that too.

In our eagerness in bringing the gospel to others.
We forget that we are sharing a message of love and hope,
and not condemnation.

Holy Spirit,
remind us to be gentle in spirit,
and sensitive towards others needs and feelings.
