Life's Too Short. Enjoy It While You Can!


My friend's brother passed away unexpectedly last week. We’re shocked to learn about his untimely departure from this world. He passed away peacefully in his sleep with no prior history of stress or illness.

May God Rest His Soul In Eternal Peace.

Life is so fragile. You won't know when your times up. Today I'm here but tomorrow I might be gone.
Everyone has to leave this world one day and it’s sad to leave behind someone you love. We must learn to let go and move on. Having the courage to accept fate, and the strength to keep moving. 

It's hard to say goodbye and even harder for those didn't get a chance to say goodbye because of lives cut short by accidents or natural disaster.

Keep your faith, don't lose hope and trust that the Lord will show you the way.

Life must go on.

Those dying person whose final hours is approaching wants to hear messages from their loved one for one last time. Most likely the person want to see are family members and sometimes a family member separation due to some misunderstandings. Nevertheless all was forgiven with no grudges in the end.

This will be tear jerking moment for those who've been through the experience of saying good-bye.
 When our time will come and we will die that takes
 us toward a bright light.

In the movie What Dreams May Come, we think how nice it will be if we can experience life together all over again in an afterlife.

When my dad passed away I had a strange dream. This is what I dreamed.

I was awoken by my dad in his usual white collar T-shirt and shorts. Suddenly I found myself out of body experience. I felt my spirit gradually lifting out of my body and kept on floating from a dark sky to a very bright sky.

When I finally reach there I saw dad sleeping peacefully wearing white suit and white tie. What this place look like? I describe it as being a white sky, cloudy, quiet and bright place.

I asked my dad, 'How are you?'. I don't hear his reply, only gave me a satisfactory smile with both eyes closed. I don't know where I have been. Given a tour of heaven I think.

I did not make this up, I still remember my dream vividly.
What Will Heaven Be Like?

Our life is liked a blank unwritten scripts. We are the actor/ actress, screenplay writer and director all roll into all. The only different is that there is no Director's CUT as our camera will keep on rolling till the end.

If a real heaven did exist, will we be judged by some panel for our past action whether we are naughty or nice? Let's roll back the clock or tape they'll say.

What is Life?

Life has no schedule. You won't know what your life expectancy is.

When your time's up, that's it you'll have to cross over.

If it’s not your turn to die then you have to keep on live your life. You can't jump the queue.

My friend 91 years old mom has been in and out of hospital but survive each time. A few moment of anxious for my friend as she thought she will lose her mom.

Once there was a man attempt to suicide by jumping off building. He survived but not the unlucky bystander on the ground die after hit by suicide person. The suicidal person time not up yet.

Sad but true story. A 105-YEAR-OLD woman hanged herself after telling her family she was tired of waiting to die. She got a long waiting list number and finally jump Q.

Live a Healthy Life. There is no such thing as long as I don't smoke or drink I'll will be living a long life.
You have no control on your lifespan. Someone who smoke a lot can live longer than someone with a 'healthier' lifestyle. Life is not always fair. The only time is fair is when whether we rich or poor, we still have to die someday.

What you can do to prolong your life is live healthy. No smoking or drinking (maybe just a little bit), eat well balanced diet (The food pyramid highlight on what to eat more of and less of) and lots of exercise. Other than that we can say its GOD's will on other factors.

Life is never ending circle of life. What does it mean?

The meaning of the "circle of life" is when you are born, get educated, got a job, found a girl/boy of your dream, got married, have children, become grandparents and then you die.

In between all this we learn from others knowledge and pass it on to the next generation and the "circle of life" starts all over again.

Live your lives with no regrets. Take risks (bungee jumping anyone?), drink up – Yam Seng/cheers (Has stopped), party animal (Has stopped), and smoke a lot (Has stopped). Yeah those were the days. Is there others things in life you haven’t done than do it. I have long wanted to learn drum lessons but still have not.

What about you? What are you waiting for?

Life is like a roller coaster: A lot of ups and downs. You never know what is waiting next at the corner. One day you're happy the next day your're sad. Life never promise you a rose garden as we faced each day with challenges and uncertainty. Things will not always go your way. If first you don't succeed, try and try again.

Live A Happy Life.  Someone used to tell me stay happy in life. So how can I stay happy?
Happiness has different meanings for every person.Does being rich really make a person happy?  Maybe to some extent but we have seen one case of a  wealthy Hong Kong singer/actor suicide by leaping from a hotel.

Remember Mr Scrooge? He has all the money in the world but unhappy with his life due to loneliness. Another family lived in a old cramped house. Although they are poor but still live a happy life and always more than happy to be sharing other people's burdens.

Money is not everything in this world, it can't buy you happiness but it does help to have a bit.

There is a Chinese saying, “Why be sad? It's better to enjoy a happy life, whether we are happy or sad we still have to live our life. So why not choose to be being happy?"

When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets. I do not look back and feel sorry what I should have done.

I want to say when it’s time to go now and the time has come to say goodbye to everyone by singing..


And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
