Curious baby

Curious baby

Yesterday, we brought baby to Ling Shan Shi monastery in Paloh where baby became a Buddhist. Together with around 20 peoples, baby attended this simple ceremony to convert to Buddhist. This ceremony is held together with Wesak Day celebration over there.

Baby was quiet all the time. Maybe he was curious of so many people around him. Actually, it is not recommended to bring baby to crowded places since his immune system is still not strong. However, my wife wanted baby to attend this ceremony. So we stayed there just for a while before coming back.

Wesak Day's little Buddha

Wesak Day's Little Buddha

Today the Buddhist celebrates Wesak day, which is the day of Gautama Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and passing away. The standard ceremony is pouring water over the Little Buddha. And this is always accompanied by beautiful flower arrangment.

My wife has been doing the Wesak Day flower arrangment in Kluang Zhi Zhu Ting temple for several years. And this year is no exception. Since time is tight, she did a simple design for this year Wesak Day.

Seminar on success in the morning by Dr Lee

Seminar on success in the morning by Dr Lee

Last Saturday, I went to Seremban for a charity event – “You are my eye”. This was a Chinese musical performance by a group of blind people from Taiwan. For the first time, Dr Lee invited them over here to perform and to raise fund for several charity organizations. Mr Wang Nai Hui, a speaker with cerebral palsy from Taiwan, was also invited.

The day began with a seminar on success by Dr Lee from Taiwan. He shared with us the correct mindset to achieve success in our life.

Looks cool

Am I cool?

Our baby is 3 months old now. He starts to put fingers in his mouth.

If we put on his hand glove, he might swallow the glove fur or eat in detergent residue. But if we take out his glove, he might scratch his face with his finger.

We found a simple way to hold up his hands – put it in his pant. However, this method won’t last long because baby’s hand is getting stronger day by day.

My HP Compaq 6520s laptop

My 1-year-old laptop

This is my 1-year-old HP Compaq 6520s laptop. I must say I’m very lucky to have this laptop with me. It was also a coincidence for me to have bought it. Previously, I used an Acer laptop. But since my younger brother furthered his study to China, I borrowed it to him.

After that I spent a lot of time online searching for the laptop I like. My budget was below RM 3000. I needed a reliable laptop but not a high spec one. Acer and Compaq laptop didn’t came to my consideration because of their lack of quality feel. Then I looked at Dell, Toshiba, Fujitsu, NEC, Lenovo and HP laptop.

This morning we brought baby to Gunung Lambak recreation park for the second time.  It was 10:30am with bright sun shinning. As usual, I shot some photos with my Nikon D60 camera. The advantage of shooting outdoor photo is the bright surrounding. I can use ISO 100 for all photos and the shutter speed is still high enough.

Here are some of the photos taken.

It's a HP

It's a HP

Recently, my relative asked me which laptop to buy. He is a beginner in using computer. So he will mainly use it for browsing internet and watch movie.

Initially I recommended Compaq CQ40-338 with Intel Core Duo T4200 2.0Ghz, 1Gb RAM, 250Gb HDD and 14 inch display. I chose Compaq over Acer and Dell because it looks more solid with chromed body finish which won’t get stained. Good experience with my current HP 6520s laptop also influenced my choice for Compaq since both are from the same company. And this new Compaq laptop is much better built compared to the previous generation Compaq laptop.

We almost bought it. But later we ended up buying another laptop instead…
