No! It's not RoboCop. I heard wrongly. It's sugar king Tan Sri Robert Kuok. He tops the list of Malaysian richest persons with US$10 billion!
I don't know whether any Professor had coined the term "10-90 Syndrome". If not, then I may claim it to be my intellectual property. Actually, I would change it to "10-90 SINdrome". It's just like the pyramid. The top contains 10% of the sum total, while the bottom takes up the full 90%. The bottom 90% supports the top 10%! Top management takes up 10% of the workforce, but 90% of the wages. 90% of workers is paid 10% of the overall wages. 10% of the population enjoys life while 90% slogging away with sweat and tears.
Sour grapes, I suppose? On a positive note, we should also strive to be with the 10%!

At this very moment, hundreds of thousands have lost their lives in two separate disasters. Another hundreds of thousands most probably would not be accounted for. And millions are suffering right now as a result of these disasters. Can you still have a clear conscience to sit and relax and reminisce? You must be deaf, dumb and blind, and out of your mind to boot.
See HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
By latest count, 130,000 deaths in Myanmar alone, mainly around the Irrawaddy Delta area. There is an anticipated second wave of catastrophy approaching. It's been 5 weeks since the onset of the disaster, and the brutal monsters in the Military Junta still refuse to allow international humanitarian aids to flow in without restriction. These monsters have been in control of the country for over 45 years!! They have robbed and raped the whole nation into what it is to-day. And the last straw is their blatant refusal for others to help their own suffering people who are at the brink of starvation and death.
THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!!!
ASEAN of course is still ASLEEP. What about Big Brother Yankee Doodle?? Well at least to-day the U.S. has issued a concerned warning to these monsters. I think it's time Big Brother DO something tangible, what about "Pre-emptive Aid Attack"!
Save Myanmar, and Quick!!

China proclaims 3-day mourning for the Sichuan victims. A Nation prays together stays together.
What about Myanmar?? A nation desperately needs a complete changeover. Any takers? Big Brother Yankee Doodle, where are you??
The Final Liberation (Mahaparinibbana)
On this day, it is also appropriate that we reflect on the Buddha's reminder of the second phenominal characteristic of existence, and that is " existence is shrouded with unsatisfactoriness." At any time, anything can happen to us, both good and bad. May we reflect on what is happening right now in Myanmar and Sichuan in China. The wrath of nature has no mercy. So please take care.
Have a Happy and Peaceful Day!

This video was presented by my Dhamma friend, Bro Oh Teik Bin. To-morrow is Vesak Day. Come let us reflect on how fortunate we are, when we see so much suffering around us. Let us not mess up our lives. Let us live in peace and contentment without harming others.
Have a Reflective Day!

Most of you, if not all, would have watched this dance presentation by the pretty deaf/mute Chinese dancers umpteen times. I wonder whether you notice that the original version is accompanied by a rather slow and somber musical score. But this one I find it very refreshing and vibrant. It is accompanied by the Chant of the Great Mantra.
Presenting the very talented, one of its kind in the whole world......enjoy and give a standing ovation...encore!

In China, in recent years some people began to advocate Mother's Day for memory of Meng Mu, the mother of Mèng Zǐ. It's still not an official festival except in very few cities.
Closer to home, Malaysia. Do you know who are the happiest people to-day? No you are wrong, not the mothers. I cannot be a mother because I am a father; but I don't think the average mother will be the happiest to-day. The first reason is she will avoid scolding or criticizing her children. But the saddest thing is this paradox, the mother feels great disappointment when the children have "forgotten" her, especially to-day. But if she has the wisdom to reflect; it is no difference if her children can remember her on only one day of the year, but "forgotten" her the rest of the year. Oh yes, who are the happiest? Of course, the business people, especially those in the food and cake business.
Who is the person in the picture? My mother. She is 84. I can remember her age this year because she has come full cycle 7 times in the Chinese zodiac! During our times, there was no such thing as Mother's Day or Father's Day. Everyday was "The Same Thing Day" because everyday was just another day.
The greatest tragedy for a mother is when she is old and useless, the children/grandchildren/husband, chuck her away in the Old Folks home to ...just use your imagination. My second sister and I took back my mother from an old folks home when she suffered this horrible fate. Now she is safely with me although "old and useless". She is now not as you see her in the above picture.
Everyday is Mother's Day to me. What about you?
Happy Mother's Day???
(Postscript: My mother passed away on 9 July 2008, corresponding to the Chinese date, 7th day of the 6th moon, at the age of 83)
(My niece found this video from her archives, showing my mother with my sister.)

I don't think anyone needs a brain to know that you can't do business for free. Any smart aleck who can provide convincing analyses and explanations for these two crazy airlines competing for free flights?
Why not they distribute free rice to the public instead? This sounds more beneficial and is definitely a more wholesome charity for all of us.

This nefarious monster of the 21st century cannot have done it ALONE for 24 years undetected not even by one single person.
I simply cannot believe it!
He was known to have gone to Thailand for close to a month for his sex vacation. Tell me, how could the poor "prisoners" survive for such a long period without any outside assistance?
