The Tale of the Three Brothers

The story is about three brothers who, traveling together, reach an impassable river. They make a magical bridge over the river. Halfway across the bridge, they meet the personification of Death who is angry for losing three potential victims. He pretends to be impressed by them and grants each a wish as a reward. The eldest brother asks for an unbeatable dueling wand. The middle brother asks for the ability to resurrect the dead. The youngest brother doesn't trust Death and asks for a way to stop Death from following him, so Death reluctantly gives him his Cloak of Invisibility. Afterwards, the brothers go their separate ways.

The eldest brother, bragging about his powerful wand, wins every duel. Finally someone murders him and takes the wand. The middle brother uses his ability to bring back the woman he loved, who died before he could marry her. However, she is not fully alive and is full of sorrow. He kills himself to join her. As for the youngest brother, Death never manages to find him, as he stays hidden under his Cloak. Many years later, the brother removes his cloak and gives it to his son. Pleased with his achievements, he greets Death as an old friend and chooses to leave with him as an old friend.

Nothin On You (Jay Park)



Beautiful girls all over the world
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted
They got nothing on you baby
Nothing on you baby
They might say hi (hi) and I might say hey (hello)
But you shouldn't worry (why) about what they say
Coz they got nothing on you baby (not.. not.. nothing on you baby,
not.. not.. nothing on you)
Nothing on you baby (not.. not.. nothing on you baby,
not.. not.. nothing on you, Come on!)

The only thing that I
wanted more than your sweet touch
Is the time I get with you, babe
I need you so much
I feeling that Love peace with U
(I feeling that Love peace with U)
I feeling that Love peace with U

So am I
the one that make you feel
The way you make me, babe
Trying to tell you that it's real
There ain't nothing more to say
From this moment our Love peace with U
(From this moment our Love peace with U)
From this moment our Love peace with U

They might say hi (hi) and I might say hey (hello)
But you shouldn't worry (why) about what they say
Coz they got nothing on you baby (not.. not.. nothing on you baby,
not.. not.. nothing on you)
Nothing on you baby (not.. not.. nothing on you baby,
not.. not.. nothing on you, Come on!)

There's no much nonsense
It's on my conscience
I'm thinking baby I should get it out
And I don't wanna sound redundant
But I was wondering if there was something that you wanna know
But never mind that we should let it go (let it go)
Cuz we don't wanna be a T.V. episode (episode)
And all the bad thoughts just let them go (let them go, go, go)

No one else of all
There’s no one else compares
The way you showed me love
Helps me to chase away my fears
Gotta trust Love peace with U
(Gotta trust Love peace with U)
Gotta trust Love peace with U

So am I
The one that has your love
Coz there’s no one else for me
I’m saying we’re meant for us
You’re the only one I see
Till because of Love peace with U
(Till because of Love peace with U)
Till because of Love peace with U

Beautiful girls all over the world (all over)

The Pious Cat

Yesterday there was a story in the papers about a special temple cat in South Korea, which spend hours everyday gazing and praying to the Buddha. This cat was found as a kitten 4 yrs ago by the abbot with burn injuries. The abbot saved it and gave it the Dharma name of "Liberation". She also gave the kitten 3 precepts for staying in the monastery, which was to 1) refrain from making noise in the Vihara, 2) refrain from eating meat and 3) refrain from killing. Amazingly the kitten could understand her instructions and have never broken them for the past 4 years.

In addition to that, the cat spends hours everyday in the Vihara "venerating" the Buddha images, reluctantly leaving only for its meals. This display of devotion by the little animal puts even the humans to shame. Clearly, this cat was a Dharma practitioner in its past life, but due to thoughts of delusion in its final moments, its consciousness descended into an animal womb during the process of rebirth. It has a good store of worldly merit, but has not developed any insight leading to the end of suffering. This is how the cat managed to find its way back to a sanctuary of Buddhism and gets well taken care of by the nuns in the monastery. I believe it prays everyday in repentance for its past delusion, hoping to leave this animal form soon and achieve a higher realm of existence. This is a warning for us all, not to care only about making merit and neglect cultivating the mind to develop insight. Without true wisdom penetrating into the nature of sankharas (mental formations), all the merit in the universe cannot save us from suffering in the endless rounds of rebirth. May this cat live up to the name given to it and may its wish be fulfilled, sadhu.

Penny Wise but Pound Foolish

The current financial tsunami has caused the economic downturn to come fast and furious, hence a lot of companies are cutting cost drastically and even retrench employees like no tomorrow. I am sure you have already felt the heat of this tusnami wave...

The company that I current work for is a 2 foreign parties joint venture start up and things can sometime get very political there. As the company is still on a ramp up phase, this it is difficult to justify it's performmance, however cutting cost at this point of time to them is inevitable. Otherwise, when economy recovers, there'll be no chance for them to do so.

Now, let me tell you what they cut and what they didn't cut.

1st they try to save electricity during lunch time by shutting down all redunant power supplies like lightings and some computers. So what the result? No one borders! Who will be so free and check the lunch time(some may be still working) and switch off the lights?

Next, they try to cut pantry supplies. An email was sent out to inform employees that from now on, no more milo supplies. Creamer and sugar will not be in satches but in container. No more form cups provided. But the western coffee maker is still there. Guess why they don't remove the western coffee maker as well? Cos some high class people that drink high class kopi will make noise! Frankly speaking, how much can they save? Also, why can't they save and recycle papers? Every damn things must print out. They are indirect murder of our next generation. The management knows better but pretend to know nothing.

Also they emphasie on cutting travel and entertainment cost but yet they still fly people down from overseas and bring them out for expensive dinner. Worst is I have to clean the shits for this good for nothing, useless pieces of trash!

As the company is formed up of many expats, hence their overhead costs are on the pretty high side. Why don't the company cut this type of overhead cost? A foreign senior manager not only being paid more than 10 grands, transport allowance is 2k, monthly rental of 5.5k fully paid by company plus children education of 3k each montly is also paid by the company! Now, remember I mentioned above, this is a JV. So both parties will try to force the golden eggs from the goose as much as they can.

So I guess on the bright side is the company will not cut pay that easily due to the balance of the power of both sides. Anything that threaten their own interests, they will not do it for sure. Cos i think pay cut must be done across the board here in SG.

At the end of the day, the cost cutting measures of this company implies that the management is penny wise but pound foolish. Employees like me can only look forward to pay day and take as much MC as possible due to the fact that there's nothing more you can get from them no matter how hardworking you are!

如燕




愿意合上眼才能美梦无边
别让悔熏乌了从前

也许碎片才能让回忆展颜
何妨瓷花拼凑明天

谁带我寻获幸福的模
却自己谜中困锁

谁为我留下缱绻的天涯
信物是抹晚霞
思念如燕它飞舞舌尖
若是真爱配尝几分苦甜

意念婆娑时间里推磨
追随到何处才结果

燕如针线在青空缝编
几幅女红将以泪缀点

誓言斑驳情雾只是经过
风雨中且让我盈步婀娜
