Gives Back – What does this mean to you?

oprahsbiggiveI recently watched one of Oprah reality show – Oprah’s Big Gives. To start with, I am not a fan of Oprah’s show but I do admire her way of making her wealth. I always read about successful people like Donald Trumph, Robert T. Kyosaki and many more to list here. One of them is Oprah. My dream is, to become as successful as they are now. I always have bring this dream with me in my life.

The Broadway Theatre

I never planned what to do when I have that kind of wealth in the future. All I can think about is to spend those money for myself and my family, of course. But watching Oprah’s Big Give change the way I think. There are so many people out there that are in needs! Too many people for all rich people on earth to help them. So I think, once I became rich, I too, will help using what I have. The most important thing is those people are happy. I never participate in any charity before because I never think of it.

oprah-big-giveThe show made me tears. It has really touched my heart that we always complain about how hard our life is or what we couldn’t get but the reality is no matter how hard our life now, there always somebody out there that have harder life than we are. This was a word from an ex-drug addict in the show. This word alone make me think of my current situation. Life is not always about the money. I know almost everything now requires money but as I said, it is not always about the money. Some people out there will feel happy enough just by listening to their story and how they improve their life from time to time.


My question is what does “Gives Back” means to you? It can be donating money. It can be the our presence when somebody in need. I leave that question to you to answer. For me, I have my own answer in my heart and let it be that way. You don’t have to answer me here but if you want to do so, please, I will really appreciate that.

Until next time,

Orphan – Good movie to watch


I was watching TV the other day when my bro-in-law (Vicq) whispered to me and ask me if I want to go to watch movie. I was like “Now?”. Then he said no, we will go tomorrow. He said he got 2 free tickets from Nuffnang (Thanks Nuffnang!) to watch the premiere of Orphan. I like movie a lot so of course I agree. But the problem is he only get 2 tickets. So how about my fiancĂ© (her sister)?

The next day, he came back from work and we came to a solution. Both of us will go and we will leave my baby at home, alone… yeah, yeah, it is sad and selfish. But there’s no other way. So to calm her down, Vic came up with the idea of to tapau for her KFC when we come home. Since she likes KFC a lot, then she agreed. Hehehe.. Mission accomplished!

So, we went to the movie and hoping that we will be one of the early birds. Ok, ok, we want the free gift! But there are other Nuffnangers who are much earlier than us! End of story. We didn’t get the free gift!

About the movie, I personally enjoyed it! The story was good and unexpected as well. Some of my friends told me that I am a ‘director’ when watching movies because I always predict the outcome and the story lines. But not in Orphan. This story was unexpected and has its own surprises. Overall it was a good movie but I want to get the uncut version! Haha… Nuffnangers who went for the movie will know what I mean.. lol!

Be careful next time when you get to close to what you think is a child because she might be an adult who has a small body. Seriously, I have seen with my own eyes this type of woman. She was about 30 years old on 1998 and she lived at JKR quarters, same place I used to lived. Her heights are just like 10 years old girl but the other parts of the body were perfect. She has what a normal woman has except the body size. That time (1998) I was 14 years old, and I was taller than her. So I didn’t really surprise at the end of the story.

For those who like mystery, surprises or puzzles, you might like to watch this movie. Don’t want to talk much about the movie since I don’t want to be labeled as spoiler! lol.

That’s all for now, until next time!

Posting using Windows Live Writter

As the title said, yes, I’m using Windows Live Writter to write this post. I don’t know what happened to blogger but started recently blogger really piss me off because the time to load and save or image uploading is slow. While I’m able to surf the net without problem, blogger just loaded slowly. I don’t know if you are facing the same problem but me? Yes.

By writing new post using Windows Live Writter, it save me much times. I don’t need to wait for blogger to load. In fact, I don’t even need to login to blogger if I want to. One of the great thing about this software is that it publish your post quite fast. And that including uploading photo! But of course I need to log in, right? Well, how am I supposed to see new comments on my posts? Here some of screenshot of Windows Live Writter.

Windows Live Writter

If you ask me, I definitely recommend you guys to update your blog using Windows Live Writter as well. It support other blog service as well such as Wordpress, Typepad, etc.

I like to have a bigger space for blog updating. You know what I mean… The space to write/edit posts in blogger is quite small and that make me uncomfortable. If you are really interested you can download the installer at Windows Live download page. The installer comes in a bundle of Windows Live software but you can choose not to download the other application and just install Windows Live Writter. Believe me, you wont regret to have this tool!

Well, until next post. I am just about to write another post now.
