It is that once every 2 years bronky invasion again!!! I wish I travelled but I did not, unfortunately fortunately.
My body has recently been attacked by a viral strain and I am suffering from bronchitis, terribly breathless phelgmy coughs. I took one week's worth of medical leave and, I have still not recovered! Agh!
The prescribed heavy dosages of medication knocked me out senseless. Days and nights have been mixed up. I'm in a daze and everything seems so slo-mo to me.
Even typing this simple entry can take more than an hour, or was it days?
I've started a new hobby~
I am into web developments now after an opportunity to participate in a collaboration. Really grateful for the spot-on and adding to my valuable knowledge bank, this latest acquisition.
Passion will definitely keep me busy! I took one whole day just to decide on the new domain name, and registering it. The medication has definitely made me unbelievably UNPRODUCTIVE and snail slow.
I wonder if I can stop coughing FIRST!
Good news is, I used this opportunity to buy my first Dyson!!! An air purifier woohoo!!!
Ok got to work on the new site, slowly.

I've been tearing a lot lately.
Tears of joy.
I've been working really hard to provide for the many 2-3 hours sleep in lending my support to a sweet colleague who just joined the org. I gave her the promise that as long as I am around, I will definitely do my best and be there for her (even digitally), as long as she is willing to put in the effort to make my phone buzz.
After many sleepless nights, we've kind of became buddies in less than 2 weeks. She taught me so much, exposed me to a new experience I never once knew. So grateful to her for the insights and of course, the knowledge that she shared is so precious, money can never buy.
Which explains my sudden absence online... But I AM BACK with a bang! Back to doing what I've always loved to and will never stop doing.
My intern is one of a kind. He's by far the most reactive guy who supports me in every corner of my work. He gets things done with proper instructions. He says reminds me with check-ins whenever I fly out of point into the universe and then forget to look back at him, still standing on planet earth HAHAHAHAH.
Now that I know I have to be extraordinarily mindful about my communications, with his guidance, I am confident of mastering the ability to separate bullet speed work AND spending quality time to share inspiring conversations.
So I've been tearing a fair bit lately, even now.
I absolutely love every single friendship I've established over the past 4 years. There is not a day that I do not look back in appreciation, and just how badly I miss so many friends! I've got to admit that there is no avenue (other than marriage) that I can create to summon them all together for a meeting in one place with me unless....
it's baby's first year birthday???!!!!
That, sounds like a perfect opportunity to reunite woohoo!!!
Life is so short that I am missing everyone already..
Those beautiful memories bring me to tears.. Sigh

Andy Lau says that every one is number One.
I've been so blown away at work that I hardly have time to network digitally and my goodness! I miss my social assets....
I love my life. It gets better each day! Being alive is the most wonderful experience. I am most awfully grateful to empty bodies = humans who intentionally acquire the impossible ability to become a bad example called Uselessness.
Earth cannot be Without bad examples, they are the very beautiful reasons you choose who you truly want to be!
I have been very hard at work, my engine has boosted way further than I expected. I've explored so much so much so much information, and it seems time to me is never ever enough!
Time IS SO PRECIOUS PEOPLE.
Please invest that time in what is the best for mankind. I've made a choice a century back that I do not, and I will not, be wasting my time. So far, so outstandingly good. What goes around, will definitely come around. It's science and mathematics. Only delusional quacks call it religion lol!
Time will always show one's true Smells. I love colors and every color is gorgeous. The art of living, is to understand the way.
Greater happiness, is too powerful to understand that not every "body" can handle it.

Proverbs 31 provides a detailed metaphor of feminine wisdom in the context of a family and a community.
The most quoted section, verses 10–31, is a chiastic poem, that is, a poem that cycles through repeated thoughts in a particular order. The chapter speaks of the worth of a good wife to her husband, the manual labor that she does, her fulfillment of responsibilities to those who need her, her ability to provide for her family, and her wisdom in caring for herself so she can share her strength with others.
The chapter begins with King Lemuel recounting advice his mother had given him. She exhorted him to not fall to weaknesses that would compromise his position as king, but to care for the poor.
One of the weaknesses the king’s mother mentioned was the susceptibility of his strength—or “noble character” (31:10)
—to be harmed by improper relationships with women.
"An excellent wife, who can find?
For her worth is far above jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life."
A good, supportive, trusting wife is a blessing to a man. A woman who partners with her husband, who is reliable and looks out for his interests, gives a man a security that is greatly lacking in the world. She is worth more than a substantial paycheck. To bring in the metaphor, wisdom provides the same benefits—it is worth more than money, you can always trust it to make the right decision, and it provides blessings for those who have it.
"She looks for wool and flax,
And works with her hands in delight…
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle…
She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness."
The wife isn’t afraid of work. She gets up in the morning and gets things done. In the time of Solomon, this involved making fabric and sewing clothes, but verse 27 certainly applies directly to us today—taking care of our responsibilities is a characteristic of wisdom.
"She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens…
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy."
Another characteristic of wisdom is the grace to help others. The Proverbs 31 wife ensures that those under her care receive what they need—food, clothing, protection. And she is able to serve others out of the excess of her work and the leaning of her heart. She has so internalized her role as a provider that it extends past her immediate responsibilities and into the community.
"She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar…
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard…
She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night…
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen."
Beyond that, she’s savvy. She’s educated about the world and the world of business. She knows how to use her skills to provide for her family, and she’s not afraid to go interact with that world, whether it be as a merchant or a buyer. She knows how to use her strengths to her best advantage, and she fully realizes how valuable her efforts are.
"She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong…
She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue."
The Proverbs 31 woman not only knows her worth, she knows her responsibilities to herself.
She would not be able to provide for others if she neglected her needs—both physical and spiritual. She makes sure her appearance reflects her respected position as an influence in her community.
Her greatest strength is her wisdom—her accurate judgment about the world and her influence in it. And she is quick to share the wisdom she has gained to encourage others to reach their potential.
"Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land…
Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
"Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all."
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates."
She knows that, as a partner in her marriage, she has a tremendous influence on her husband’s ministry. She can integrate her life—both domestic and professional—with her ministry in such a way that her husband has the freedom to serve. In fact, her reputation is so established, that it bleeds off onto him.
The wife is a fierce provider and protector for those she cares about. She is wise to the ways of the world, but lives by the wisdom of God. As in the rest of the Proverbs, these specific examples provide a metaphor for the larger truth.
How any individual woman exemplifies these characteristics will depend on her situation, gifts, and abilities. The key is in verse 30, just as it is in the beginning of Proverbs, in 1:7:
"But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised"

I am sharing this universal Code of Conduct because I want our world to be a better place for ourselves, our children, our children's children and hopefully the great beyond. Human Beings have weaknesses - a blinding imperfection enduring life's many great experiences only for us to discover an identity we choose to call our Self.
Truth is, none of us are different.
We live only for this one common goal - Happiness.
There is only one simple way to acheive greater happiness, be good. With conscious effort and a disciplined focus on self awareness and mindfulness, any one of us can become a person of good character, the kind of person God loves. Even if you have just one day left to breathe, for your own sake, make that your best 24 hours.
Perfection is a choice, and so is imperfection.
- Diana -
A person of good character:
- enjoys a peace of mind
- is healthy
- is youthful and energetic
- is filled with passion, happiness and gratitude
- tends to be way above average looking (natural and captivating)
- baffles the weak with curiosity: "There's just something about this person..."
- possesses a beautiful and charismatic soul that magnetizes and charms
- can change this world, one person at a time.
