(CT Chang inside the compound of the Gerson Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico)
Today I like to introduce an internet friend to you. His name is CT Chang, and he has cancer. Chang has defied the doctor's 6-month "death sentence" when the doctor first diagnosed him to have cancer of the kidneys. He is now on his 23rd month after hearing the doctor's opinion. This is from his blog profile:
"An accountant by training but now in forced retirement due to stage 4 kidney cancer. Given less than 6 months to live in September 2009 and no cure by my doctors, I was determined to change my destiny. I like travelling to off beaten tracks because you experience and see life as part the journey, not at its destination."
Today Chang has sort of written an introduction of what his blog is all about. I feel deeply that I shall pass his life-saving message to all of you. Who knows, someone you know may benefit from this message.
Having said that, my sincere wish is that none of you will need this information.
Please take good care of your health in the confines of these two cardinal principles :
1. Maintain excellent physical health.
2. Maintain a peaceful and contented mind.
So we need to live a wholesome lifestyle by following these three guidelines:
1. Eat healthy food in order to supply proper nutrition to the body.
2. Regular exercise, to keep the body fit.
3. Stay relaxed, and be contented, in order to have a peaceful mind.
With this wholesome lifestyle, our mind and body will be in harmony, our immune system will be in excellent condition. We will enjoy a healthy body and a peaceful mind.

Uncle Lim, or Saudara Lim Kit Siang needs no further introduction to all fellow Malaysians, friends and foes.
I have been a fervent supporter of Uncle Lim since I was a young student, still not eligible to vote. In the 80s, came election day, I would return from KL to Penang, my hometown to vote DAP, knowing very well that my one vote wouldn't make any difference in the fate of DAP and Uncle Lim. Still my great respect for Uncle Lim did not deter me to do my little insignificant part. Just to cast my one vote for DAP, election after election without fail, I would vote for DAP. Each time my heart sank for DAP.
I remembered on one election night after the results were announced at the Penang Esplanade, a dejected Uncle Lim walked away alone along Bishop Street, just opposite Public Bank. I was following him, too shy to call him and to shake his hand. I regretted not having the courage to do so.
Then on one occasion he wrote about his utter frustration in his blog, saying he felt like giving up. There was an immediate wave of supportive comments urging him to hang on. This time, thanks to the internet, I also had the chance to make my feelings heard.
Uncle Lim Kit Siang, the man I most respected, will be able to realize his dream of Malaysia for all Malaysians in the not too distant future. I am sure most of you will agree with me.
As an off-shoot, during the last GE in 2008, one hot afternoon I saw Uncle Lim's son, Lim Guan Eng sweating away, by the roadside infront of Reservoir Garden overseeing the erection of one of the DAP signboards, opposite the Public Bank. Yes, opposite Public Bank again, just like I saw his father 20 years before, although at different locations! It must be a very good omen. He was also answering to reporters at the same time. That reminded me of my "secret close encounter" with his father some 20 years back. I began to see another great "fighter" for freedom. That further fired up my conviction that the Rocket will rise to its rightful place one day. As you know his son is now Tuan YAB Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang. My most loyal persistent one vote has not been in vain after all.

‘Lady of Liberty’ at Bersih march draws online support
KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 — Quiet has settled over Saturday’s chaos but one image is still making waves on the Internet — the picture of an elderly woman in yellow, drenched in rain and chemical-laced water, walking away from riot police while clutching on to a long-stemmed flower and a near-empty mineral water bottle.
Despite this, eyewitnesses claimed on the internet that Ooi had marched on determinedly during the protest and despite the chaos, even yelled at others not to run. When told to ask her mother if she would dare to brave another march for the same cause, her daughter said, quoting Ooi, “Without a doubt”.

When we talk about the durians, you have to leave it to the people of Penang. Aha! and I am from Penang, a Penangite, born and bred, and retired, still in Penang!

For "foreigners", you are welcome to read my article and get to know more about this stinking thorny arsenal of a fruit, called durian.

This is insane. Or am I the one who is insane not accepting which others can achieve? This is crazy.
Just watch this video. She made the mountain goats hanging on the cliff's wall like child's play.

We all need constant reminders to stay positive and be happy. This is the secret to good health. I was quite sceptical that I would spend all the 17 minutes watching this movie. But once started I lost count of the time, and got the full reminder to always smile, and try to make others smile too, altho most times it is very difficult. People thought you were trying to be funny.
Well, the least I can just smile for myself.
You must watch this video.
