Something To Ponder


The following is something to ponder if you don't know what to be thankful for.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep ... you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace ... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church or synagogue meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death ... you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If your parents are still alive and still married ... you are very rare, even in the United States.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful ... you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder ... you are blessed because you can offer a healing touch.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Now isn’t that something to ponder about?

Why are Dogs Man's Best Friend


Found this in a local forum. Its heart warming to note that this dog brave across the street to save his friend who was knocked down by a car.

However, after realizing that his friend was already dead, he tries his best to move it away from the traffic. Knowing that he was too weak to do that, he stayed behind to keep his friend company.

There are times where passerby wanted to help but was barked away by the dog. It is a classic example of why they are called 'Man's Best Friend'.
I wonder sometimes, if the people around us will go to that extend and stay around when you are in trouble, or will they just leave.

Belief - The David Beckham Story


This is a David Beckham's interview on how he survived after the World Cup of '98. The belief he had, the strength and the support of his family helped him to re-establish himself and to win the hearts of those who once betrayed him.

Are You Missing Opportunities?


Before I start babbling about the universe and laws, I want you to watch this video and maybe follow the instructions very carefully. If you do what is asked, you will be more aware of the reason why success eludes you. After that, read on.

Have you watched the video? What do you think of it? Did you see the 'opportunity' in the form of gorilla? Sometimes all we need to realize is that opportunities are everywhere. But because we are focusing on the wrong things. Things we always called problems, we do not realize they are also opportunities dressed in overalls.

The Law of Attraction states that you attract into your life the predominant thoughts in your mind. If you choose to complain and focus on problems, that’s what you get! If you choose to focus and look out for opportunities, you will see them everywhere!

So, stop whining and complaining. Focus on what you are grateful for everyday. You will notice a dramatic change in your life. Not sure about that? ask the gorilla!

Free Hugs Campaign: How Did It All Started


How Did It All Started, In The Words of Founder Juan Mann

I'd been living in London when my world turned upside down and I'd had to come home. By the time my plane landed back in Sydney, all I had left was a carry on bag full of clothes and a world of troubles. No one to welcome me back, no place to call home. I was a tourist in my hometown.

Standing there in the arrivals terminal, watching other passengers meeting their waiting friends and family, with open arms and smiling faces, hugging and laughing together, I wanted someone out there to be waiting for me. To be happy to see me. To smile at me. To hug me.

So I got some cardboard and a marker and made a sign. I found the busiest pedestrian intersection in the city and held that sign aloft, with the words "Free Hugs" on both sides.

And for 15 minutes, people just stared right through me. The first person who stopped, tapped me on the shoulder and told me how her dog had just died that morning. How that morning had been the one year anniversary of her only daughter dying in a car accident. How what she needed now, when she felt most alone in the world, was a hug. I got down on one knee, we put our arms around each other and when we parted, she was smiling.

Everyone has problems and for sure mine haven't compared. But to see someone who was once frowning, smile even for a moment, is worth it every time.

An 83-year-old Kansas woman spent 30 years driving open roads, picking up aluminum cans, in a single-handed effort to raise enough money to build a community swimming pool for the children in her home town of Eskridge. For more than three decades, Maisie DeVore gathered and delivered cans, scrap metal and car parts to a recycling facility. Can by can, year after year, she earned $73,000 and received a matching grant to raise the rest. Says Maisie, "If you really want something and pursue it with all your mind, you'll get it done one way or another." Here's a video featuring her and the pick-up truck, and that Kansas can-do attitude..

Lesson From a Baboon - Never Give Up!


This baboon fought for her life when others have given up on saving her. It also shows how close our behaviors are compared to the animals.

Cruel Gossip Cruel Hoax


SOMEONE close to you has been missing for weeks.

You are worried sick.

You put up posters, look for her everywhere and as a last resort, you put up a website hoping against hope someone will help you find her.

But then, to your dismay, people go online and begin posting horrid rumours about your friend.

Some even abuse the contact information you posted online.

So you get prank calls and false information on your friend's whereabouts, leading you on heartbreaking wild goose chases.

This is what happened to friends of 19-year-old student Felicia Teo Wei Ling, who went missing more than a month ago.

The friends are now incensed over comments posted on a forum thread, where they used to get information on Miss Teo's whereabouts.

Miss Teo went missing on 30 Jun, and was last seen leaving a friend's flat in Marine Terrace. She had gone there after a party at the LaSalle-SIA School of the Arts campus, where she is studying.

Search efforts have been futile, and police still have no leads on Miss Teo's whereabouts.

Posting under a forum nickname, an Internet user on the popular local forum,, provided 'information' on Miss Teo's whereabouts.

The user, nicknamed playb0y, claimed that Miss Teo is now living with a friend named Ben, and that he had even seen her last Tuesday.

He claimed that she had taken to drinking, and had left home because she had failed her exams and didn't want to face the music.

He even provided a phone number - claiming it was Ben's - challenging visitors to the site to call and find out the 'truth'.

But repeated calls to the number went straight to a voice mailbox.

These, her friends said, are all cruel lies.

And the agony didn't end there.

Posters appealing for information on Miss Teo's whereabouts were put up all over Singapore.

Miss Teo's close friend, Mr Dahiyaht Yusof, 27, told The New Paper that in addition to the malicious online posts, he has also received numerous prank calls giving false information on Miss Teo's whereabouts.

His handphone number is one of two contact numbers provided on the website set up for Miss Teo (

On the site are also pictures of Miss Teo posing casually with her friends.

Mr Dahiyaht said: 'When we actually went down to the places they said she (Miss Teo) was, we realised that these were all pranks.'

He added that he firmly believes that MissTeo is 'not a runaway case', contrary to all the wild speculation on the forums, and on Miss Teo's website.

On how to handle these online rumour-mongers, Mr Dahiyaht said exasperatedly: 'What can we do? We just want to find her.'

He declined to comment further.


Another of Miss Teo's friends, who did not want to be named, told Shin Min Daily News that the forum posts about Miss Teo living with a friend were likely to be a hoax, because none of her closest friends knew of any 'Ben' she may have known .

'I called the number (given by Ben) to check - but it wouldn't get through,' he said.

There were many visitors to the Findfelicia website, but the thing that upset Miss Teo's friends further were dubious comments by visitors claiming they had seen visions of MissTeo in various places.

One user wrote that he had seen Miss Teo in a dream, being tortured and begging for help.

Crime Library founder and ex-policeman Joseph Tan, 40, who is helping in the search for Miss Teo, told The New Paper that these incidents were to be expected since Miss Teo's friends' contact information were so widely broadcasted.

'It's all right for friends to seek help, but when they are sent on all these wild goose chases, their morale is bound to be dampened,' he said.

Mr Tan said that when those closest to Miss Teo are highly anxious, false information on her whereabouts would only raise their hopes unnecessarily.

'In cases like this, I would encourage friends and family to refrain from putting up their own personal contact information,' he advised.


He added that in his experience, families of missing people who widely disseminate their contact information also find themselves prey to unscrupulous con artists.

He said: 'Some have even called families to solicit money.'

But these negative incidents aside, the search for Miss Teo is going on strong.

The Crime Library has put up a half-page advertisement in The Straits Times today with photographs of Miss Teo and five other missing people.

A notice is also placed on the Crime Library's website.

The library's 274 volunteers are constantly on the lookout for information related to MissTeo's disappearance.

Anyone with information on her should call the police hotline at 1800-255 0000.

Hope she can be found soon.
