Twist of Fate?

July 30, 2009

Let me start with something awesome.

2. The internet has retarded Generation Y’s social skills. Instead of telling a person directly that they’re interested in them by asking them on a date, Generation Y sends Crush alerts on Facebook. While the internet has made connecting with people easier, it has also made us lazier at establishing meaningful relationships. If you’re over 18 and you’re still using Facebook applications to let someone know you’re interested in them, you need to be punched in the face.

Great Compassion Mantra

July 28, 2009

Benefits in Reciting and Holding The Great Compassion Mantra

Excerpts from The Dharani Sutra
English translation by the Buddhist Text Translation Society,
Dharma Realm Buddhist University, USA

If humans and gods recite and hold the phrases of the Great Compassion Mantra, then when they approach the end of life, all the Buddhas of the ten directions will come to take them by the hand to rebirth in whatever Buddhaland they wish, according to their desire.

Should any living beings who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion fall into the three evil paths, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not be reborn in any Buddhaland, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not obtain unlimited samadhis and eloquence, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not obtain the fruits of whatever is sought in this very life, then he cannot have been making proper use of the Dharani of the Great Compassion Heart.

People and gods who recite and hold the Great Compassion Mantra will obtain fifteen kinds of good birth and will not suffer fifteen kinds of bad death.

The bad deaths are:
1. They will not die of starvation or privation
2. They will not die from having been yoked, imprisoned, caned or otherwise beaten
3. They will not die at the hands of hostile enemies
4. They will not be killed in military battle
5. They will not be killed by tigers, wolves, or other evil beasts
6. They will not die from the venom of poisonous snakes, black serpents, or scorpions
7. They will not drown or be burned to death
8. They will not be poisoned to death
9. They will not die as a result of sorcery
10. They will not die of madness or insanity
11. They will not be killed by landslides or falling trees
12. They will not die of nightmares sent by evil people
13. They will not be killed by deviant spirits or evil ghosts
14. They will not die of evil illnesses which bind the body
15. They will not commit suicide

Those who recite and hold the spiritual Mantra of Great Compassion will not suffer any of these fifteen kinds of bad death and will obtain the following fifteen kinds of good birth:
1. Their place of birth will always have a good king
2. They will always be born in a good country
3. They will always be born at a good time
4. They will always meet good friends
5. The organs of their body will always be complete
6. Their heart will be pure and full in the way
7. They will not violate the prohibitive precepts
8. Their family will be kind and harmonious
9. They will always have the necessary wealth and goods in abundance
10. They will always obtain the respect and help of others
11. They riches will not be plundered
12. They will obtain everything they seek
13. Dragons, gods, and good spirits will always protect them
14. In the place where they are born they will see the Buddha and hear the Dharma
15. They will awaken to the profound meaning of that Proper Dharma which they hear.

Those who recite and hold the Great Compassion Mantra will obtain these fifteen kinds of good birth. All gods and people should constantly recite and hold it, without carelessness.

3:51 AM 7/23/2009

Now Playing — Utada – Dirty Desire *rolleyes*

Current line — “Can you feel my dirty desire~” LOL -.-

3:53 AM now. Lao eh. I should be sleeping. Why am I still up? Reason being I was rushing my documentation for my summer research (like after 2 months of shaking legs now I get to do something, I’m tired but happy as I actually learned a bit at speedreading and summarising. -.- rather than slacking).

Ah. Tiring indeed.

However, this is not the worst I’d been through. Why would I say so?

Back then, my group project, Internet Poker. Implementation of RMI over SSL. Aiyo, I tell you, that’s one of the worst days I’d been through, *excluding the things that happened before March* it is really lifeless. Imagine this, for the sake of finishing the project, and scoring, I have to wake up early, and read API (Application Programming Interface), and documentations. EARLY MORNING wake up eyes like this @@ and face the laptop till I go to school / lunch / if no school then read till lunch from wake up till go to sleep for 3 consecutive weeks… If you can survive that, facing the laptop 24/7/365 is nothing for you already.

After I manage to get the SSL implementation up and running, we chiong the leftover codes, combine, and documentation. I can still remember I’m sleeping while typing (YES THAT REALLY HAPPENED), and suprisingly no typos, probably I’d been typing for hours straight to the extend that my fingers can really memorise the exact tempo and position of each alphabet lol. Happened back in Form 5 while I was rushing for my PEKA project. Oh my god how many hundred pages man. That one also one hell of a traumatic experi3nc3. =\

But after I get my results, it’s all worth it. Very worth it. 82 marks. 20 credits. FTW. =3

I was chatting with Steph bout my ex-asthma (thank god) and I’d decided to post this:

‘-‘ Stephanie says:

Chinese Ed GF vs English Ed GF

July 21, 2009

Originally posted in LYN — Click Here

Author — ZeratoS. Posted with permission.

—– start of post —–

Speakin’ regarding the topic at hand, I find myself rather inclined to be biased towards those of an English background. Throughout my entire school life, particularly that of high school, I find that the Chinese Educated students, in particular the girls, tend to be what we call syoik sendiri to the point that its not funny.

I mean, knowing that there were students who did not grasp Mandarin well these girls would proceed to ask the teacher questions in Chinese, abruptly disrupting classes since we bananas don’t get it. Very kiasu and no sense of decency if you ask me. I would also often get the “Oh ask the ENGLISH pro!” and “Wah you lansi o, your english geng ma.” nonsense from these people. Not just guys but the girls too!

I myself tend to stereotype and classify the girls of our race. Having been brought up to think critically and see all the facets on the gemstone or so to speak figuratively, I try to look at girls beyond what they present themselves as.

But honestly speaking, you tend to notice that we CAN to a certain extent stereotype these girls. How many Chinese Educated (The Extremes) females wear clothing brands like MNG, Zara and Topshop? I hardly ever see such. Perhaps its the environment around me, having studied in Taylor’s Subang Campus, you will notice the segregation.

The English Educated females hang out in specific places, wear specific clothes and tend to do specific things. The most common instance would be Starbucks, designer or tasteful/classy clothes and well engage themselves in things like the Student Council.

On the other hand, the Chinese Eds. tend to hang out in places such as that corner coffee shop, wear brands I have never heard of and the like. Its pretty easy to distinguish them apart too. From the way they speak to the way they act.

I’ve noticed, having not prepared themselves for Tertiary education (for which is English based in many countries), these Chinese Educated students having been brought up in a, shall we say, enclosed environment feel alien and ostracised. (I believe?)

Hell, you’ll see the difference in their demeanor and the way they carry themselves. English Educated girls are so confident! Whereas one will hardly notice them Chinese Eds. A matter of confidence perhaps?

Extra points in no general category, based on past experiences and general observation. :
-English Ed females can be categorized in to a few categories (though may cross categories or be partial of each) ;
*The Outgoing
*The B_tch/Wh_re (Sub-Category)
*The Conservative
*The Studious
-Chinese Ed females ;
*B_tch/Lalamui/Ah Lian (They all have the same attitude)
*Wanna-be Taiwanese Soap Opera Star
*Conservative & Studious
*Friendly, Outgoing & Optimist

It really depends on which category they fall under, coupled with background, environment, friends. I find that those who dress in their harajuku-wannabe fashion only do it to attract attention.

The curious question is this. What YOU want in a lady differs from everyone else. Some may go for the submissive girls, something I DO find common in Chinese Educated girls (though I may be wrong), some like the outgoing types, some want a mix of everything, and some just want any girl they can get. Upbringing constitutes how they handle situations and how they carry themselves, so you be the one to judge. I have a friend who’s rich, comes from a Chinese Educated background (schoolwise), speaks English at home and yet her English is above-average at best. Shown in her Cambridge Examination results, being a typical straight A student found in Chinese schools. Yet she managed to obtain a place in the London School of Economics, a feat that my entire class, even being English Ed. had not been able to achieve. Why so? She carries herself well, has some behavior like an English Ed and knows what to do whilst mantaining her Chinese grassroots. (The whole groupie thing and all.)

So the question is, what kind of woman do you want? wink.gif

———————————————————————————————————

Now, my personal preference lies really with the English upbringing really, though I do try to learn any dialect I come across. Simply because girls who have another language as their forte will be unable to communicate with me. I could speak to them about things ranging from philosophy to music (classical, not the trashy nonsense that we get today, ESPECIALLY not Jay Chou.) but can they comprehend what I try to convey to them? I think not. All the other points mentioned prior to my post do tend to affect the way I view it too. Things such as dress sense, ettiquette, confidence and intelligence really play a big part in attraction. Not just some crummy book-memorizing skills which seriously anybody can do. The English educated ladies tend to be better conversationalists too, as per my experience, whilst those from a traditional Chinese background would just stare at me blankly and go “Har?”, “What you mean?” having me repeat the entire discussion, to them, in extremely simple English that even my 8-year old brother can grasp better.

Perhaps another example would be what activities these girls indulge themselves in. Whilst we guys consider it worth the money to go for things like the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Go-Karting (Which girls can do to!) and the like, it would be just another “waste of money” to them. Yet they can splurge on K-boxes and atrocious looking clothes?

I myself write poetry, and what stares do I get in return? The typical Chinese Ed. phrase :
“Wah, so deep! What for u do this?”

Stupid isn’t it? Being a 19-year old guy I wouldn’t know too much about it as I have only explored the tip of the iceberg of life. What do the LYN-er’s think of the way I think? Too “deep” for these people? I’d like some insight on it.

Regards,
Shaun

P.S : Don’t screw me upside down, in no way does my post reflect on the population as a whole as I am pretty much aware of some very astounding individuals (females) who have a very Chinese upbringing and yet manage to forge their way through society and create memories in the hearts of their friends which aren’t too easily forgotten.

P.P.S : Now lalagirls/ah lians, I won’t even consider them under any category of Chinese people, be it English or Chinese educated. As far as I am concerned these creatures are a species of their own.

Viva la Vida.
