Actually if you really look around, you will find people performing kindness in every directions. It is not racist nor is it a religion. KINDNESS is the word that makes the dark day bright; the sad, happy; the helpless sees hope; the angry soften and it makes the world goes round.

I especially like this story. It is so innocently simple and warm. It is so easy to find beauty in the eyes of a Child. Being adults, our judgement is always so clouded and complicated. I hope the sharing of this piece of story brings out the warm in you and do your Kindness without reservations.

A little boy wanted to meet Kindness. He knew it was a long trip to find Kindness so he packed his bag with potato chips and six-pack of root beer and started his journey. When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old man. He was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to him and opened his bag. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered him some chips and the old man gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.

His smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered him a root beer. Again, he smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling, but they never said a word.
As twilight approached, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave; but before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around, ran back to the old man, and gave him a hug. The old man gave him his biggest smile ever...

When the boy opened the door to his own house later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked him, "What did you do today that made you so happy.

He replied, "I had lunch with Kindness." But before his mother could respond, he added, "You know what? He's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"

Meanwhile, the old man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home. His son was stunned by the look of peace on his father's face and he asked, "Dad, what did you do today that made you so happy?"

He replied "I ate potato chips in the park with Kindness." However, before his son responded, he added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime! Embrace all equally!

Have lunch with Kindness......bring chips, or a few cans of root beer with you !

Religion Monies....

It saddens me to see, and I am sure these are happening not just in Singapore but all over the World.

Monies is the roots of all evils. When there are so much monies, if one does not use it to benefits oneself, it will be wasted sitting there. It is these thoughts that brought reputations down the drains, not to oneself but the religion as well as its denomination too.

What makes people think they can use 'Religion Monies' and on the pretext that they are doing good for the religious mass? In the name of  ''GOD" monies can be raised easily and without questions. People give willingly to ''GOD", not to person or persons so that they can use it for their own interest.
When so many people are working so hard and honestly to bring home bread and butter to make ends meet, for educations of children, for a roof over heads, for some food on the table or a piece of cloth to cover the body and here people in the name of "God" live a good life.
Actually I really like a story I read and to cut it short is that when you die you bring nothing but your merits and demerits.

I followed the news of the happenings. I am sure the members are hurt. Of course there are some die hards who do not want to accept the truth. They just have to ask themselves, they are steadfast in believe to "GOD" or they are fans running around a "make believe representative" of GOD and a celebrity wife?

Spiritual sanctuary is a must because there will be time when one needs inner peace and to be freed from all mundane activities. When one is sad, when one is troubled, when one needs an advice, when one wants to find a solution. One prays and retreats into oneself, to be in touch within with the 'spiritual entity'. It gives you strength, comfort, and the courage to move on. However because we have so many agendas ourselves, it is so easy to pull spider webs over our eyes.
Anyway I am not interested in the millions and trillions if it is not mine. Although there are people who think they can escape going to be ''roasted'' after all who knows. I am not taking the risks because I know there are places of ''fire'' waiting. It is we choose to go there not that we have to go there. Before going there firstly suffers on Earth, being named ''untrustworthy'', being named ''a cheat'', being bog down with all the legal proceedings - are you able to sleep? Don't tell me that all these really doesn't matter, it will definitely have psychological effects.

Bird flu...H7N9

Many of us are travelling either for leisure or for business but how many of us vaccinate our self before we travel or are we ignorant? Recently there are also reported death in China on the H7N9 flu. It is reported but how bad is it no one knows. So to take care of yourself, no matter what country you are traveling to, protect yourself.
What is H7N9?
Flu or Influenza is a viral infection. There are 3 types of Flu A, B and C. H7N9 is Avian Flu and belongs to the A category which comes from birds. This Flu H7N9 is currently notorious in parts of China. The mostly affected areas are places we all love to go like Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui.
Authorities are trying to establish how did this bird flu spread to human and it is so deadly. There are virus spread by animals and people are not able to understand why, even dogs. I have friends who just touch any cute looking dogs along the walkway, not knowing the dogs background. There are people who keep pets and they sleep with their pets. I will not say too much here or people who love their pets will throw stones at me.
So what are the signs of H7N9?
These are indicators but when we have persistent fever, cough and you cannot breath properly, it is better to see a doctor than pass it off as normal flu. Bird flu will lead to serious breathing problem, pneumonia and eventually death.
So is there a cure?
My doctor say 'No'. There is no indication that it is communicable between human but better to be save than sorry. So if you are travelling, vaccinate against flu.
So what to further prep yourself?
1) Personal hygiene - wash your hands
2) Watch what you eat and make sure they are steaming hot and cooked
3) When you touch any animals, especially birds i.e chicken, pigeons etc. do wash your hands.
4) I know there are people who love to consume animals' blood, do avoid.
5) We all love animals but please avoid touching any animals dead or alive if you do not know what is the caused of death.
There are many ways in daily hygiene that one should note and practice and ways to ensure one immune system remains strong.

Recently I have been drinking Wheatgrass juice. I know this grass has been around for a long time and many people are already using it as a juice, coloring, made into cakes, as an alternative medicine. It is also not a cheap drink because a small cup is S$2.00.

Many were said about this grass that it can be used for various medicinal purposes. I am not able to find anything concrete or proof that it is a 'wonder' grass for that matter but again anything grown naturally cannot be too harmful. Consuming such drinks, one needs to be moderate and not overdo it.

It smells like freshly cut grass. Not many can take the smell but I like the smell of freshly cut grass. The smells tell you that it is green in color. Wheatgrass is green in color. Beautifully green and it gives a color of Life. We all know that green color in the grass is called chlorophyll.
To consume wheatgrass, we have to separate the roots from the stems. A handful of wheatgrass probably can only give you a small portion of juice. This concentrated juice is nutrients and said to contain Vitamin A, C, E, iron, calcium, magnesium and amino acids.
So what can this wonder grass do? Below are extracts from various sites....
"Wheatgrass is used for increasing production of hemoglobin, the chemical in red blood cells that carries oxygen; improving blood sugar disorders, such as diabetes; preventing tooth decay; improving wound healing; and preventing bacterial infections. It is also used for removing deposits of drugs, heavy metals, and cancer-causing agents from the body; and for removing toxins from the liver and blood."
" Some people use wheatgrass for preventing gray hair, reducing high blood pressure, improving digestion, and lowering cholesterol by blocking its absorption."
"Wheatgrass is used for cancer and arthritis in alternative treatment programs. "
So much to this wonder grass and many more can be found on the net.
When I first took it, it helped me to clear my bowels easily. People said it may cause nausea but I am OK with it and I suppose everyone body is different.
Again I want to remind is to take everything moderately. I take it as a health drink. People who said it works wonder, yes maybe in combinations with other supplement they have been taking and they give credit to wheatgrass. So don't buy every thing said at 'log, stock and barrel'.
