"A woman's pride and joy is not measured by her looks or possessions. It is measured by how much her man loves her." ~ Kay Kay :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
"Whatever a person looks for they will find. It does not matter it is truth or a lie. We will always experience what we believe, whether it is joy or misery. Many are so used to pain they forgot how to feel anything but the same. They look for all that is wrong and all that is wrong always comes along. But if they looked for everything that was right they would find all that is wrong disappear from sight. Whatever a person looks for they will find every time. So, remember when standing in darkness we can always choose to turn on the light." ~ Jacob Israel :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
"If you believe in karma, which I kinda do, this added to my good karma list. And since I also believe in The Secret, the feeling of positivity I have due to the fact I think I'm kind and awesome will indefinitely add luck and greatness to my life. Not scientifically proven or anything, but I believe it." ~ Xiaxue :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
"Be as ridiculous as we possibly can in this life. If we love something, embrace it and wear it proudly like a badge. Never let the generic people of this world insult a passion we are following with conviction." ~ Author Unknown :)

"It’s good to be ambitious but being ambitious means never being satisfied of where you are and always looking to achieve more. If we are always ambitious… then will we never be satisfied? And if we will never be satisfied… then will we never be happy?" ~ Timothy T. :)
"Society expects us to be ambitious and never stop trying to get bigger and bigger from whatever we have achieved this far. But that’s wrong… there must be a limit somewhere. There is an optimum amount of ambition needed in each of us. Anything beyond that is bad because then you will never be happy no matter what you achieve. You will always keep trying to do more and more and when you can’t, you get disappointed in yourself. Why do we have to always be ambitious? Why can’t we just be happy?" ~ Mrs Tiah :)
15 June 2015 Saw some lovely pieces of garments. Pansy asked me to pay for them during a one-day-sale in July. She bundled them up for me. Labelled them as mine. Reserved them for me. 11 July 2015 Paid for them at 30% discount. Isn't Pansy so wonderful? She had gone the extra mile on many occasions.
"Sometimes, there are things in our lives that aren't meant to stay. Sometimes, change may not be what we want. Sometimes, change is exactly what we need. And sometimes, saying goodbye is the hardest thing you think you'll ever have to do, but sometimes, saying hello again is the thing that breaks you down and makes you more vulnerable than you ever thought possible. Sometimes, change is too much to bear. But most of the time, change is the only thing saving your life." ~ Author Unknown :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago.

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~ E.E. Cummings :)
A ray of hope flickers in the sky A tiny star lights up way up high All across the land dawns a brand new morn This comes to pass when a child is born
A silent wish sails the seven seas The winds of change whisper in the trees And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn This comes to pass when a child is born
A rosy hue settles all around You've got the feel you're on solid ground For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn This comes to pass when a child is born
And all of this happened Because the world is waiting Waiting for one child Black, white, yellow, no one knows But a child that would grow up and turn tears to laughter Hate to love, war to peace And everyone to everyone's neighbour Misery and suffering would be forgotten forever
It's all a dream and illusion now It must come true, sometimes soon somehow All across the land dawns a brand new morn This comes to pass when a child is born * Heard this hymn at the next subway station today, a July morning :)
Once in every few years, I'll stumble upon a very excellent blogger online. I'll learn a lot from them. They are very kind to share bits and pieces of wisdom as well as priceless life experiences. They are very down-to-earth. They are very genuine and sincere. Mummy Tong is my latest jewel found online. She has not written since 05 July 2015. Hope she is well and fine. Looking forward to your next dayre post :)
"Learnt a new fav word from a friend today: ‘Vergangenheitsbewältigung’ means coming to terms with the past. It is one thing he loves about the Germans and he said we can all learn from them. 'When we deal with the past, we learn from it and we grow from it.'" ~ Han Sheng :)
Two Weeks Ago Received a letter. Now or never. I needed to decide. Yesterday Returned after 17 years. Met many older old faces. I felt at home. Today Someone phoned me. Her husband passed on in 2011. I did not know.
"If the place is too toxic. If the person is too toxic. If the situation is too toxic. We had tried for a long time. We can't carry on as believers. Then just throw in the towel." ~ Shaun Chong :) * The above does not refer to anywhere nor anyone in particular.
When we show kindness to others, our words and actions have a positive ripple effect which spreads out to affect many people :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
The ability to understand all the cultural differences in attitudes and behaviours will empower the global employee to react appropriately in a given situation, and adjust to the needs of the environment. It also lays a solid foundation for great working relationships with colleagues of different cultural backgrounds :)
It refers to a person's ability to function effectively in situations characterised by cultural diversity. This applies when interacting with people from different countries and different backgrounds while on home turf or overseas. Having a high cultural intelligence means that we understand, and use to our advantage, the knowledge of how and why we should, or should not, behave around people of different cultures :)
"You can tell a positive person the minute you see him or her. By the way he smiles, the way he talks about things and his facial expressions. You can also tell it by the way he talks about his life or about his previous jobs. For example, if someone has a tendency to complain a lot about life or things then maybe this person isn’t a very positive person." ~ Timothy T. :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago.

"Allow beauty to shatter us regularly. The loveliest people are the ones who have been burnt and broken and torn at the seams, yet still send their open hearts into the world to mend with love again, and again, and again.
We must allow ourselves to feel our lives while we are in it."
~ Victoria Erickson :)

Last Friday a parent came. Another parent came today. Didn't you see it coming at all? You are a mother yourself. You've your own car. You stay near your working place. Which student can afford to take a cab frequently? They were asked to reach before the public transport was fully operational for the day. They were expected to reach home very late because you had made reservation for dinner for them. Some of them are not even 13-year-old yet. Do you care for their safety and well-being at all? Holidays are meant for the students to rest with their families. Yet, you had lined up many activities for them. Medical certificates were required if they were absent. They were required to pay the full course fees if they were either absent or fail in the tests. They need to show their travel documents to you if they were abroad with their families. Are all these stress and pressure necessary? The extra activities are supposed to be fun and enriching. Most probably, you are overly concerned with your own KPI. Please spare a thought and show some compassion.
