You know what?? actually i've heard several times my clique say this word-->KIASU. And they mark me as 'kiasu person'. At first, i just ignored it but then one day i suddenly feel unconfortable and curious to know what is the word mean. So now i know.. :( I FEEL SO BAD TO KNOW THIS.. huh..

Got this meaning from Wikipedia:

Kiasu is a Hokkien (a Chinese spoken variant) word that literally means 'fear of losing'. However its actual usage would imply a meaning more approaching that of "dog in a manger", and yet not quite. Examples of kiasu behaviour includes accumulating too much food on one's plate during a buffet lunch in case there is no more later, or joining a queue many days in advance just to ensure that one successfully gets hold of the limited free tickets to events, promotions and shows such as Singapore's annual National Day Parade.

This word is so widely used by Singaporeans and Malaysians that it is incorporated into their English vocabulary (in the form of Singlish). It is often used in describing the social attitudes of people, especially about South East Asian society and its values. Its widespread use is often because these attitudes are common—to not lose out in a highly competitive society (e.g. by above-cited examples), or to the extent of parents imposing heavy study labour on their children in their wish to make them at the very top of all other students. Growing up with this attitude, these students often become ambitious businesspeople, with the desire to be on top in wealth and prestige regardless of whether the most prestigious careers are aligned with their true capabilities.

It is often perceived as part of Ah Beng culture. The comic series Mr Kiasu depicts many examples of kiasu behaviour.

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.
I do agree with the above quote..It is easier to forgive your enemy rather than your own friend.. Maybe because you are directly expose yourself to them, and they can hurt you so much.
Based from my experience, i have through so much difficulties because of myself-i don't want to learn to forgive the one who hurt me and also to my own self. As the circumstances, i became a quite and shy girl and have less friend and cannot accept any critism from anyone(sensitive).
At my teen time i have a BF and unfortunately our relationship do not as smooth as i hope for. We broke our relationship and at that time, i've create a new feeling towards him-i swore to myself, i will never forgive him. I bring the unforgiveness feeling for several years. Until, when this one day, i've met him again-on the messenger. We chat like we are friends and suddenly i realize that i've misunderstood towards him and he seems had forgave me as he said-"ah..cerita lama jangan di kenang".. Then, from that moment on, i felt so good because there is no burden anymore..and i feel free!
Now, there is no hatred i feel towards him. And, i would like to give my apology to him for what had happen. I am sorry.

Something to think of..

You asked God to take away your habit
God said, No! It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give up..
You asked God to make you patient
God said, No! Patience is a product of triblation,
it isn't granted, it is learned..
You asked God to give your happinest
God said, No! I give you blessings, happinest is
up to you..
You asked God to spare your pain
God said, No! Suffering drows you from worldly cares and
bring you closer to me..
You asked God to make your spirit grow
God said, No! You must grow on your own!
But I will prune you to make you faithful..
You asked God for all the things that you might enjoy
God said, No! I will give you life, so that you might enjoy
all things..
You asked God to help you love others as much
as He loves you.. God said,
Finally, you have the idea!..(n-n)
p/s:i got this from my lil' sis magazine..nice one..hehe

Lent Talk

Hi dear readers..

I want to share something about the talk(Lent Talk) which has been presented by Rev. Fr. Peter Abas justnow..There are many things that he have shared but these are some of it which i think is merely important..

As we all know(hmm..maybe not all of us know..maybe know but don't understand) Lent means it is time for us to start fasting. Fasting here is not only mean fasting on what we eat but it is also on what we behave, what we do, how we speak, how we live, what we think, etc.. in short, it is like we control our body and mind to do the good things not only for the good of ourself but also to the other people and especially to God..(p/s: this is only my opinion, there is no wrong or right okay..)

From the talk,

Fasting means we control what we eat, ( mean: stop eating before you feel full, fasting not to eat meat every Friday, etc..) , control the bad behaviour or our kebiasaan~the negative thing(Fr. said, kasi kurang...not totally stop..because not all people can stop immiedietly from doing that mah..kan..)

Fasting also means we beramal..Beramal here is not simply means we make donations in terms of monetary thing but it is actually more than for example, we helps the needy, we spend some time to clean the church, we spend some time to the needy

There's an interesting story that Fr. Peter have shared tonight.. it is about an old lady who give him (Fr.Peter) an orange. And she(the old lady) ask him to sit and eat the orange together with her. And..suddenly that old lady say this to him.. "Fr., thank you because taking some of your time to eat together with me".. ~from here, moral of the story that we should learn is, to give some of our time to the people around us..

Another example is like this: let say, one of your family member is sick and she/he is in the hospital..kebiasaan yang kita buat, we'll bring fruits, flowers to give the sick person when we come to visit. But, actually all of that stuff is not really important..(because if ikut logik pun, bukan the sick person dapat makan smua pun..) what is more important is we come there and we spend some of our time with the sick person.. it is much more appreciated compare to all the other thing..(as from my experience, i'm really touched and like i want to cry when my friends took some of their time to come to visit me eventhough on that time they are really busy in preparing themselves for the final examination..)

Fasting also means~not to misuse the technology that we have(for example, use the handphone to spread the negative thing-picture yg tidak senonoh, etc...)

Finally, as for me, fasting is actually a good time for me to learn the meaning of being passion in everything i do, to become more closer to God, bersifat sederhana , and learn to love others unconditionally, to forgive people purely and also to ease the luka-luka batin yang kita alami..

God Bless all of you..Thanks for reading..
