Good evening ladies and gentlemen’s, readers across the nations, up and down and across the nation.

Looking at the way things are going, it has been a little ‘dusty’ so I’ve come with my feather duster to ‘swooosh’ some things  around here.

It has been a busy ‘ productive’ weeks of working out in my new business course, something that I thought would let me get started back on blogging back for a week, but it has overshoot way more than that. It has really gotten me into the zone, and I didn’t want to come back until i had solid ground and came back a more informative man.  You don’t go swimming and come back 5 seconds later and say that you had an effective swimming lesson now don’t you.

The point is I had to do it. I had to make myself focus on the trainings. The journey of discovering my audience, finding out what matters in a blog or business, (at least that’s what I have in plan to turn my blog into few weeks back), has been mind-blowing.

The amount of work covered in hearing from the best motivators, and also through physical workbooks and homework, worksheets has got me going.

And in overall, everything that I have extracted out from the blog, collected from previous works and experiences, thoughts, dreams, emotions, and influences..

I’m ‘Niching’ down my blog, and am determined to serve to a more defined audience for SELF IMPROVEMENT.

It will be a new website, which is still in the process, and it will be a dedicated towards a more specific group of people, focusing mainly on Positivity and Happiness.

I’m still niching it down to serve a particular type of audience to focus on positivity and Happiness, but for now I’m reading up books and building up knowledge.

You know, the best part about it is that discovering what my blog is about, is that it has meant to be for you, so allow me to understand your issue.

I hope that I may join you instead in your boat and journey towards life.

My training is not over yet, but I’ve come to let you give you a glimpse of the ‘trailer’, and hopefully we may still see each other in new era.

It has been a pleasure knowing you. Watch the space and I’ll you update soon!

oh, I’ve new accounts for social media,

How You Can Make The World A Better Place Now? | Better World Project

The Better World Project

The Better World Project

We are living in a world with issues still left untold and it needs addressing.

You may find an issue more crucial to life as compared to others. We all have our own views when we see it, AND If we voice out and get ourselves heard, we can spread a vast awareness and share our views together.

In search of trying to understand how we can improve ourselves and our world, I started a small project called The Better World Project.

It’s my first time doing a project for my blog which involves going out of the internet life and asking people questions. I was nervous like hell because I didn’t expect it to be so scary. It’s also hard because people might think that I’m some salesman or promoter, getting the palm’s up and No’s before I even mentioned anything.

Still, it triggered me that if I want answers, I need to go for it. I want to understand what is it that concerns our people.

With the help of my friends Sodrudin and Rasif, we went to town, from Scape to Orchard Road with our whiteboards and sweets to ask people a simple question.

What do you think can help to make the world a better place?

I’ve got to say that some voiced out really good replies.

It’s amazing how people can have a diversity of answers to contribute. Some that I find really true and unconsciously didn’t even think about. Some gave concerns about our environment, while others tackles on our society and how we treat ourselves.

I would like to give thanks to the supporters for this project, and for spreading out your message for others to look and think about.

There are still issues out there that we are afraid to voice out how we feel. The world needs our help make her a better place.

You can make the world a better place through awareness. Share your views with your neighbours, friends, community .Facebook it, Twitter it out, blog about it. Even better, participate in the activity, and Insta-pic or Insta-vid it.

What is yours? Share it with me in the comments!

How to save Electricity By Killing A Vampire?

It’s good that once in a while we remind each other on the importance of saving electricity.

My mum being the usual parent, is always nagging reminding me, of how I should learn to turn off the electricity every time I don’t use it. Being the stubborn one, I didn’t see the importance of it. It’s not that I don’t want to off the plug, but i find it so troublesome to have to turn it on again.

I tend to forget to switch off the lights in the toilet, my room lights , and my handphone charger when I leave the house.

Living with my parents before didn’t make me realise how crucial it is to them. After staying with grandma, and having to look at the bill once awhile (because its only me and her in the house) , I realise how much waste the money goes to the bill that we’re paying.

It isn’t as much difference as my parents place, and I didn’t realise that we’re using a lot of electricity. Well there could always only be one reason the bill was as higher. It’s me.

Yes, i felt that the habit of not turning off the switches when I’m not using them got the better of me. I felt that if I could have turn off the main appliance, i would have also save up money if I learn more about how it works.

Now there’s an even more crucial issue to handle.

I recently got an email from the Earth Day Network on this topic. In applies for mostly in the US for those wall sockets with no off button. If you’re not from there, this is also something you might want to know.

Did you know that even if you’re turning off the appliance, you’re also still sucking in energy? These are call energy vampires.

Even if you have your chargers off, it’s still important to unplug them from the sockets. Which means all those ovens, microwaves, toasters and TV that you’re using are still draining energy from your main sockets even if you have it off.

I cannot imagine how many vampires there are in my house. I also now understand how critical it is to also off your main power electricity  if you have one like they do in Singapore, Asia and Europe.

As recommended by the Earth Day Network page, to help yourself save money, it’s best to

  • unplug the appliance
  • turn off the main socket (the one from the wall) even better unplug your appliance from the main socket just in case you might have a faulty wall switch.
  • use a power strip to regulate the flow of electricity
  • Use energy-efficient appliances that consumes lesser power.

Here’s my commitment for helping to save my own bill

  1. Off my main power socket when not in use
  2. Unplug my handphone charger and coil them nicely
  3. Remind myself to see if there’s anything I can off before going out of the house

Do you have any methods to how you remind yourself to save electricity? If you do do share it with me in the comments.

What I Learnt from Visiting My Relatives In the Kampung

Walking down that gravel road

I recently went on a short trip to Ayer Hitam in Malaysia to visit my a relative. I’ve been told by my parents that I was going to a kampung place (a small Malay village) , but I can’t remember anyone from there. The last time I visited the place was a toddler at the age of 5.

I never had thought of going to visit them because I was unfamiliar with their location, and unsure who they were. However that particular day, my parents drove grandma and I and all the way to Ayer Hitam, across the Tuas border and into Malaysia and reached our destination hour and a half later.

The path linking from the main road was a small road and it can hardly fit two cars. One has to give way to another. Most of the areas was surrounded by trees of all kinds and some planted by their owners. The place had electrical cables running along poles on the side of the main road. It was a peaceful sight.

I  had never seen my relatives, my grandma’s brother’s wife. She lives alone while her son is out serving the army in Johor which is also a few hours away. The moment we saw each other and said hi,  I could see the relieve in her face and smile in her eyes and she hugged me really tight.

I must have somehow create an impact in her life back then. I couldn’t remember her, but she could remember me. I felt that I missed out on the people who knew me back when I was a kid.

Having to be born in a fast paced country where technology and economy is fast on the rise and growing, I don’t have to really worry about electrical shortage, clean water or having a good environment.

Though the place I went wasn’t as bad as i mentioned on top,  it made me realise how lucky I must have been to be born in a green environment, good and steady development , good smooth roads, easy water access, having to have WIFI* easily accessible.

I’m near to the people I care about, and at least about an hour away the most in my own country.

Story Grandma Would Tell Me

She would tell stories of our history as we came from a poor family, how she had the need to tie pocket money coins for school in a handkerchief for my mum so tightly worrying that it might drop, that my mum couldn’t even open the knot when she wanted to buy food for recess break.

She told me of stories of how they would walk miles along the train tracks, just to send my mum to school, with my uncle on her side, and my aunt strapped on her shoulder. She would work in a factory like other workers would, but to earn extra cash, she went to wash the worker’s clothes, clean her boss house and took care of their place.

I still recall some hard moments  in her eyes and she express herself out to me, and I see it in this woman that she has gone through a lot to get to where she is today.

It made me realise and reflect, on how I should treasure what i have now.

I’ve yet to understand how the history of my generation of family have gone from the past till now. I would consider myself really lucky. Hopefully I would one day return a favor and help to make the generation of my family live a better life.

Things You Missed Out Not Climbing that Staircase

I was observing how many people went up the staircase whenever they got out of the train to exit out from the underground station at Outram Park and the amount of people climbing up the staircase compared to those riding the escalator up to another level.

From my observation, it felt like there’s an aura that’s different spreading around individuals who went to take the stairs. What’s so different about it was the energy that was brought in them and it felt like how do I say, the black  among the white sheep, or the white along the red roses?

It just hit me at that moment and I felt more conscious with my surroundings. I ask myself, “Why are these people taking the staircase?”, I’m thinking of a specific reason to why they are taking the staircase instead of the escalator.

Why work so hard when things are already made easy for you right, Stoner? (that’s what my inner alternate would say to me)

And I told myself, why not take the staircase? It will sound cliché, but I felt a TRUE sense of achievement after doing it. I felt like I had a choice to either go for the escalator or the staircase, and that moment felt that I made a good choice because I’m able to tell myself to climb those steps, and just go for it. You really have to go for it to understand how it feels like.

I managed to do something that I didn’t believe I’m strong to do so mentally and said,  if I believe in myself, I can fight that excuses that goes in my mind like “I’m too lazy” , I’m too tired” or “The staircase is too high” and etc.

I can imagine the benefits it would have given myself if i started earlier , that extra training for my leg muscles in physical and feel more health conscious and stronger in mentality, and that’s a great thing for my well-being.

What I really appreciate and learn most from this small yet interesting part of life, it to have allowing me to train on the ability to focus on my thoughts , and training me on making good choices in life.

What if you decided to take the staircase for a day? What about  changing your routine to take the staircase to work every time you pass by the same station? What difference and impact can it bring to your life?
