Web Sites that We Can’t Live Without

View thru my Xi Fu (master) blog lately, Xi Fu recommended one of the best web site - entitled “HowStuffWorks”, this is an easy-to-understand explanations of how the world actually works. Or something similar to encyclopedia, it was rated by Time Magazine as "25 Web Sites We Can't Live Without" in 2006 and 2007.

I kind of “Wao!!” and was truly impressed, invaluable vast knowledge will be gained just between fingers tips, from car engines to search engines, from cell phones to stern cells, thousands & thousands of subjects in between.

Later, I get to know ‘WonderHowTo’ website from my best friend, another Big Wao Wao!!, a community-fueled, search engine and directory for Free How-To Video. With an index of more than 100,000 free videos (as of March 2008).

Let’s not explain further, see it yourself and you will agree with me with a Wao !

Unused Item - Sell it for Money

At times, you notice that you have a lot of unused stuff in your cabinet, book shelves, store room, wardrobe, garage, attic or even underneath your bed. Things range from clothing, accessories, shoes, books, electrical items, toys, furniture, stationery & others.

If you convert it into value, you can actually buy the house next door. Yup… that’s the value you have spent over the years. In western countries, they used to have yearly garage sales or sell it to the 2nd hand shop.

Back in Malaysia, we can either donate it to the poor or sell it to the antique shop if the item is older than your great great grandmother.

I have come across some websites where we can actually put up our used item for sales, with this we can vacant at least 30% of our house space, do good for environmental for recycling and foremost earn some money. Sound great right ?

Let's action by visiting the following sites :

1. http://www.ebay.com.my/
2. http://www.lelong.com.my/

Good luck to you, but don't be tempted to buy the good & cheap thing in return and stock up another 50% of the house.

Cheng Beng & Mediumship

In remembrance of our dearly departed granny or Ah Poh, we do some prayer & offering during Cheng Beng (Qing Ming Jie), joss money or ‘Kim’ and paper accessories such as clothing & sandals, were burnt to ensure that granny has all her needs in the other world.

One of our aunts suggested checking the wellness of Ah Poh thru medium, and Ah Poh came alive by recognising and calling names of the presence, we were happy that she was the right granny.
Ah Poh said the sandals that she received were too big and cause her to fall, she prefer to have shoes instead.

Ah Poh said she would visit her sons whenever she is free? With curiosity my mom asked, ‘ah ma, how you come to my house where we stay so far away ?’

Being not too friendly Ah Poh replied ‘I have followed your car home before.’

With chill & uneasy feeling, we suddenly felt that this was not the Ah Poh we used to know, Ah Poh was actually blind and she needs guide or has she been cured in the other world?
She continued with an husky voice, ‘I shall visit again…in one or two day's time..’. With goose pimples all over, we kind of feeling spooky.

The session was ended, some going back with amazed on how true it was, some with doubtful question.

To be safe, Mom reminded both the maids that Ah Poh will be home and not to shoo away strange living things like butterfly, moth, dragonfly, grasshopper & frog in the house, it is Ah Poh who has transformed for the visit.

On the 2nd day, a big beautiful butterfly hovering the hall, kitchen & dining area. Both the maids were shivering with eerie feeling.

‘Ah Poh, Ah Poh… you don’t disturb us huh, we are only working here, please, please forgive us, we will ask madam to burn more more ‘money’ for you.’ said one of the maids.

Strange yah, should it be coincident or real ? ?
