Beluga whale 'saves' diver

In July, 2009 Yang Yun thought she was going to die when her legs were paralyzed by arctic temperatures during a free diving contest without any breathing equipment.

Competitors had to sink to the bottom of an aquarium's 20ft arctic pool and stay there for as long as possible amid the beluga whales at Polar Land in Harbin, north east China.

"I began to choke and sank even lower and I thought that was it for me – I was dead. Until I felt this incredible force under me driving me to the surface," she explained.

Mila, the Beluga whale, had spotted her difficulties and using her sensitive dolphin-like nose guided Yun safely to the surface.

"We suddenly saw the girl being pushed to the top of the pool with her leg in Mila's mouth. She's a sensitive animal who works closely with humans and I think this girl owes her life."

Intelligent Belugas were among the first whales to interact with man and have facial muscles that allow them to smile

Dear smokers

"Dear Smokers, 
Please get a plastic bag and cover yourself whenever you want to start smoking to enable you to enjoy the smoke 100% by yourself.
I don't want any percentage of it nor do my friends who don't smoke.
Don't kill me if you want to kill yourself"

Saw this paper out of no where and wonder how true it is.
Dear smokers, smoking kills, please stop smoking.

Here's an smoking video for you, smokers:

Shep in the Lake Superior

This 19 year old Shep being cradled in his father's arm last night in Lake Superior.

Shep falls asleep every night when he is carried into the lake. 

The buoyancy of the water soothes his arthritic bones.

Lake Superior is very warm right now, so the temp of the water is perfect.

I was so happy I got to capture this moment for John.

By the way, John rescued Shep as an 8 month old puppy, and he's been by his side through many adventures:

Part of The Tibetan Seven limbed Prayer
".... with my body speech and mind I humbly prostrate.
I make offerings both set out and imagined.
I declare every unwholesome action I have committed.
I rejoice in the virtue of all beings

Please stay until Samsara ends, and please turn the wheels of Dharma for us.

I dedicate all these virtues to the Great Enlightenment clanarmstrong.

Everyone is a genius

Everyone is a genius.
But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

--Albert Einstein

Words for teenagers

Northland College principal John Tapene has offered the following words from a judge who regularly deals with youth.
"Always we hear the cry from teenagers, 'what can we do, where can we go?'

"My answer is this: Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons and after you've finished, read a book. Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun.

"The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness and lonely again.
In other words grow up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone not a wishbone. 
Start behaving like a responsible person.
You are important and you are needed.
It's too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday.
Someday is now and that somebody is you!"

Galaxy Note 10.1 Official Hands-on

Galaxy note is out for a year, and Samsung had made breakthrough to make it bigger!
It is the Galaxy Note 10.1
However, although it had been released for a while now, but there's still not much presence of this tablet outside the world.
Here's a video showing you guys some key feature of the Note tablet (not that phablet) which is quite awesome on view.
However, from my experience, samsung keyboard leave me a bad image of samsung tablet.
The keyboard is slow and insensitive to type words.
Not to mention switching languages is a pain in use.

However this problem should be resolved in this Note 10.1, since we use the S-pen to write instead of using a keyboard now. Just back to days like when we used to take down notes with pen and paper-notes. 
But instead, this note costs a penny comparing to paper-notes. :P

Share it for Abdul Kalaam!

YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke, the airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.
YOU say, say and say.

What do YOU do about it? Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give him a name - YOURS.

Give him a face - YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International best.

In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground Links as they are. You pay $5(approx. Rs.60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity. In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU? YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai. YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah. YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds (Rs.650) a month to, "see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else."

YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop, "Jaanta hai sala main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucks and get lost." YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand. Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo? Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston? We are still talking of the same YOU. YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the same here in India?

Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay, Mr. Tinaikar, had a point to make. "Rich people's dogs are walked on the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place," he said." And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect the officers to do? Go down with broom every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels? In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan. Will the Indian citizen do that here?" He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility. We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms.

We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity. This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public. When it comes to burning social issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse? 'It's the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my sons' rights to a dowry.' 

So who's going to change the system? What does a system consist of? Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbors, other households, other cities, other communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU. When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr. Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away. Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England. When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. 

Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.

Dear Indians,

The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a great deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too....

I am echoing J. F. Kennedy's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians.....


Lets do what India needs from us.

Thank you
Abdul Kalaam

30 Hour Famine at HELP University

Hunger No More!!

It is the slogan for the 30 hour famine this year.
We want hunger no more, poverty no more as well as suffering no more!
Great thanks to Jason Lim, the chinese camp leader, whom leads me in participant to the camp.

I'm back to HELP, again!
Remember back the first time I participated 30 hour famine was at HELP too.
Found me? :P

And this is my group this year~

3 years passed, and now I'm back to here for the camp.
It was still as interesting as always, peoples were crowded at here.

The opening was as.. boring as always.
There are some awesome people to go on stage and gave their speech.
Sharing their valuable experience on working with world vision to aid the needs.
Expecting to see some old grumpy guys to talk about that, instead, a beautiful young girl came on stage for the sharing. She's a Famine Advocate!

A famine advocate was a group of 5 people this year.
I was wondering, why 5 only?
There's a reason behind of course. 
Famine advocate are youngsters whom travel their way down to various country to inspect world vision's developing works as well as giving a hand on to their events in countries like Taiwan as well.
They didn't tell, but I believe that their fees were paid by world vision as well.
So, it is a great opportunity to be one of the advocates. But not as easy as you think.
There's tests involving speaking writing presenting as well as personalities to be taken account by world vision in choosing who to be a famine advocate.
The girl above is the one, whom passed and became a famine advocate - Lim Shur. 

After the opening ceremony, the famine challenges start.
I'm sorry for not taking any pictures when the famine challenge is going on.
It was so exciting and we could not spare time taking photos. :P

After 6 hours of famine challenges, I feel no hungry at all!
Probably I was used to it already, or the games is more exciting than my hunger. 
After that, the Mini Concert comes in time.
The organizer had invited various artist to do singing dancing beatboxing performance to all of us. 

This is not a performer !!
It is our awesome english Emcee, Marcus!
He's funny, and he makes the hall goes alive every moment he host.
" The problem is funny, the solution is serious "

I like this performance group the most.
They mixed 'call me maybe' and 'gee' together so well and their voices are so awesome.
You know, every time I wondering, why these people can't be famous artist when they are so talented.

After the mini concert, it is time to sleep!
Woo woo before that, there's a sharing session by Kenzo.
No photos though, it is a serious moment.

The next day!
We've reach the stadium Malawati!
We were told that fifteen thousands of people are going to be gathered here.
I wasn't impressed, or I just don't know how much is that amount of people should be. 
However, we reached there earlier, we've got seats.
Looking at the arriving crowds from other DIY camps.

After the concert started, we were told that there were eighteen thousands of people in the house now!
Can't imagine how much people is that? Look around the pictures here. :D

There were people standing on the staircase as well, which is not meant to be stand there for the concert.
The ground floor 'rock zone' is fully seated and the whole stadium is occupied!
Stadium Malawati is not enough for Famine 30!
By the way, a very sad case to be heard. There were even about thousand people are outside of the stadium.
The hall is fulled, and they were forced to be allocated outside of the stadium, watching only live images from slides prepared outside screening the inside condition.
I felt so heartache for this, why not we just squeeze a little bit in, and let everyone inside?
I know it is uncomfortable, but how is this comparable to the poverty?

Anyway how, finally.. Lee Hom is here!
For the final 20 minutes before the break fast, he's here!
I can say, everyone(including me) went nuts seeing Lee Hom's here.
He's awesome, and too awesome to be with us with the countdown!

"Cheers" with the V-Soy

The aftermath :D

Dato Lee you're the Best

Dato Lee, although you didn't manage to get a gold, but that doesn't matter at all!
Not at ALL!
You're spirit is what that matters to us and your passion already streamed through every soul of Malaysians.
Please do not apologize, it is not required. We are on your side, and you've got all the supports over here, in Malaysia!
