This is amazing, Randy Pausch 47 yrs old, a computer Sc. lecturer from Mellon University died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind

In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.



1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.

9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.

10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


15. Call your family often

16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business

21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.


22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change

26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up

27. The best is yet to come

28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful

29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with,
people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.

Tsunami at workplace

(1)     Suddenly, a ‘tsunami’ is raging inside my workplace, when few ‘hardcore’ persons inside several sections in my workplace tendered resignation letter.
(2)     It started with a dear friend from Stamping, one from QC, and suddenly two persons from my section, one is an executive level.
(3)     It was said that whenever somebody resign, it will usually initiate a wave of resignations. This in my opinion happened due to uneasiness inside co workers, which has been kept and built up throughout their working days..waiting to be released. When a ‘spark’ created, it initiates a wave of unstoppable fire spreading. When you see somebody’s ‘misery’ being lifted up, you feel that you want to taste how he/she feels, and quickly search for an opportunity to do so.
(4)     Like it or not, this is the usual scenario happening inside a workplace, especially in factory/manufacturing environment. People, especially younger generation will not hold on to a job for very long, unless the have a reason to do so (marriage, family commitment, contract etc).
(5)     Some people said that works are all the same, regardless which company you are in. I’ll say this is true, but searching a job that will most suit you is important too. One can’t work with full efficiency with a sense of dissatisfaction on their job or workplace. For example, relationship with co workers, type of job, benefits being given to them etc.
(6)     However, it most difficult to satisfy a human being..and this is a fact that nobody can deny. And there is no guarantee that you new workplace will give enough satisfaction that you crave for. The only thing you can do is to list down all merits and demerits, and consider which one is better. My advice is not to be too eager when deciding to change your job. Your mind and body health are at stake! Remember, money isn’t everything…eventhough I constantly try to remind myself of this.
(7)     If a company can give you flexible time…you can go to pray anytime you want, go back home without much problems stuck inside your head, you feel comfortable with your co workers..then for me this should be the workplace that you should choose, rather than receive tremendous amount of money..but having to ‘sell your soul’ for the sake of the company.

Bill Gates speech: 11 rules your kids did not and will not learn in school

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it! 

Rule 2: The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. 

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. 

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. 

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. 

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. 

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. 

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. 

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. 

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. 

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

Terengganu through lens..

To my 'accidential' models, I really like to know all of you :) Please email me, or add me at facebook, my username is Sollehin Melan. It was nice to see your smiles.

I like this photo because of what it symbolizes (well at least for me). Langit yang gelap seolah-olah membawa kemarahan tuhan, dan satu-satunya yang menahan kemarahan itu daripada turun ke bumi, adalah iman dan ibadat, yang disimbolkan melalui menara masjid, yang seperti tiang penahan. Kesimpulannya..beribadatlah kita bersungguh-sungguh dan jaga diri kita :)

Beautifully taken, with water reflection
