Two things in life that are difficult to achieve:-
1. To plant your idea in someone's head.
2. To plant someone'smoney in your own pocket.
He who succeeds in planting his idea in someone's head - we call Lao Shi 老师(teacher)
He who succeeds planting someone's money in his own pocket - we call Lao Ban 老板(boss)

I first watched the Golden Melody Awards Presentation only last year, and again this year. In both I saw the smiles of success, and supressed disappointments.

AgaIn, this was sent by my emailing friend:
Love this one!!!
BEST POEM IN THE WORLD
I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven

This week, Jews as well as Christians all over the world remember the same occasion, but the institution of which were...Read more
What's Good about Good Friday?
Why is this day so called? I don't know the how, and the when.
The Chinese term for this day means: "The day Jesus suffered" That's the truth. That was the day He died a horrific death , nailed to a cross, formed of 2 stakes. It was the most cruel method of death devised by the Romans, and it was reserved for non- Roman citizens!!
So Where does the Goodness come from?
Jesus died as the sacrificial Lamb , t...Read more
