What Would You Do If Your Road Ahead Is Going To Be A Rough One?


BACK TO BASIC

I’ve gotten this answer from Rhino the hamster after watching “Bolt” during a few years back and thus would like to share with you lovely souls out there via this post:

Bolt: The road’ll be rough.

Rhino: I HAVE A BALL.

Dialogue source: Bolt (2008) – Quotes – IMDb

The answer from Rhino (or should I say the script writer) has waken me up.

A ball indeed is all he has.

To us, he is just a hamster inside a ball and yet he sees that ball as his main asset.

Ever wonder, especially when we are solving those very complicated mathematical problems and after writing almost half a page of working lines, the answer turns out to be only a O or a 1?

I am not a mathematician and I won’t and will never understand the beauty in those equations, thus I, together with my very sore fingers, would get very frustrated even after getting the correct answer.

Technology is so advance these days that sometimes it makes us forget about the simplest and the most basic things in life.

A simple smile can break an icy/awkward situation. 

A sincere ‘Hi’ or ‘Goodbye’ can resolve a misunderstanding.

A heartfelt handshake or hug can enhance a new-found relationship.

Life itself is really not a bed of (thorn-free) roses.

Roses have thorns but we don’t really need any fancy equipment to get rid of those thorns in order to make our bed of roses a thorn-free one.

A simple cutter will do the trick.

Rhino has a ball, have you lovely souls found that simple cutter of yours yet?

Thank you so much for reading this post.

Have a wonderful and thorn-free day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ :D

A Forbidden Fruit?


CNCSI-1002

The apple tree was perhaps the earliest tree to be cultivated and its fruits have been improved through selection over thousands of years. The only apples native to North America are crab apples, which were once called “common apples”.

The flowers are white with a pink tinge that gradually fades, five petaled, and 2.5 to 3.5 centimetres (0.98 to 1.4 in) in diameter. The fruit matures in autumn, and is typically 5 to 9 centimetres (2.0 to 3.5 in) in diameter.

The center of the fruit contains five carpels arranged in a five-point star, each carpel containing one to three seeds, called pips.

Apples appear in many religious traditions, often as a mystical or forbidden fruit.

One of the problems identifying apples in religion, mythology and folktales is that the word “apple” was used as a generic term for all (foreign) fruit, other than berries, but including nuts, as late as the 17th century.

Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition has held that it was an apple that Eve coaxed Adam to share with her.

In this case the unnamed fruit of Eden became an apple under the influence of story of the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides.

As a result, in the story of Adam and Eve, the apple became a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation, the fall of man into sin, and sin itself.

Apples are often eaten raw; except for the seeds, which are slightly poisonous, the whole fruit including the skin is suitable for human consumption but the core is often not eaten, leaving an apple core as a residue.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.

Gifts Have Ribbons, Not Strings


Gifts have ribbons, not strings. 

Vanna Bonta

This is a holiday advice from Bonta essay “Ribbons vs. Strings” adapted to Christmas audio Tale “It’s the Gift That Counts” (Holiday Magic 2005 CD).

The above is an extract from Vanna Bonta’s Wikiquote Page.

So, do your gifts have ribbons or strings?

Well, for mine, they definitely have adhesive tapes on them… :P

Hope you all  enjoy this quote.

Peacocking and Weaseling


CNC-LN021-MAJESTIC-PEACOCK

Peacocking and weaseling may sound like strange terms when we’re talking about writing, but they should be understood if you’re on a quest to become a better writer.

Peacock and weasel terms are difficult to avoid, but once you learn what they are, and why they should be avoided, you’ll be able to spot them in your own writing.

PEACOCK TERMS

Peacock terms promote a subject without providing attribution and they are often used to grab a reader’s attention, but typically reflect an unqualified opinion.

Examples:

  • one of the most important
  • one of the best
  • the indisputable
  • outstanding
  • among the most notable

WEASEL TERMS

Like peacock terms, weasel words and phrases aim to create an impression that the writer wrote something meaningful and specific, when in fact only vague, general, and ambiguous information was claimed.

Weasel terms tend to promote the thought that something is widely accepted, whether it is or isn’t. Weasels are clever and guile mammals — so are weasel words. In fact, weasels are so sneaky, that their often mistaken for a rodent, rather than a mammal.

Examples:

  • Studies show… (What studies?)
  • Some argue…(Who argues?)
  • Critics say…(Ok, what critics?)
  • Is considered by many… (Great, but who?)

Peacock and weasel terms are difficult to avoid, but once you learn what they are, and why they should be avoided, you’ll be able to spot them in your own writing.

Weasel: Yeah~ I get that a lot from many other animals too…

Just A Few Words Can Make A Big Difference…


It was when I started blogging, going through the net searching for inspiring quotes to share and receiving comments telling me how much they are loving this beautiful soul, that I finally started noticing her – Maya Angelou.

Angelou died on the morning of May 28, 2014 and during her memorial service, her son, Guy Johnson stated, “She left this mortal plane with no loss of acuity and no loss in comprehension”.

Despite being in constant pain due to her dancing career and respiratory failure, she wrote four books during the last ten years of her life.

To be frank, I’ve not seen any of her performances nor read any of her written works and I didn’t even know about Maya Angelou until two years ago.

So, am I being very hypocritical to draft this tribute post just for the sake of posting?

Perhaps I am.

The reason why I am still doing so is because I feel thankful to be able to come across some beautiful and enlightening words by her in which I’ve shared in one of my previous posts — I’VE LEARNED THAT — and sometimes, it only takes something as little as a few words to make a difference in our lives.

You rose into my life

Like a promised sunrise

Brightening my days

With the light in your eyes.

I’ve never been so strong.

Now I’m where I belong.

(Maya Angelou)

 

 

Dear Maya Angelou

Now you‘re where you belong

The words that you’ve left behind will continue to shine on

Just like many promised sunrises

Ensuring us that our nights won’t be too long

Thank you so much for your wisdom

Have a wonderful day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ :D

Rotting delicacies!

OOH~ LA~ LA~

You are free to judge my life

I simply love it too much to care

I’ve lived my life by counting moments too

Just give me a stick of butter

I CAN BE A BUTTERFLY TOO!

There is no dignity quite so impressive

And no one independence quite so important

As living within your means

Trans-Cycle!


CNC-LN013 - VINTAGE INSPIRED PENNY FARTHING LONG NECKLACE

farthing was a coin of England, Great Britain, and finally of the United Kingdom, worth one quarter of a penny, 1/960 of a pound sterling.

Such coins were first minted in England in the 13th century, and continued to be used until 31 December 1960, when they ceased to be legal tender.

These old British Penny and Farthing (quarter penny) coins had inspired the name of the Penny-Farthing bicycle.

The penny-farthing (also known as High Wheel, High Wheeler and Ordinary), the first machine to be called ‘a bicycle’, is a term used to describe a type of bicycle with a large front wheel and a much smaller rear wheel, popular after the boneshaker, until the development of the safety bicycle, in the 1880s.

An important and unfortunate attribute of the penny-farthing is that the rider sits high and nearly over the front axle.  To stop, the rider presses back on the pedals while applying a spoon-shaped brake pressing the tire. When the wheel strikes rocks and ruts, or under hard braking, the rider can be pitched forward off the bicycle head-first, called “taking a header” or simply “a header”.

Two new developments changed this situation, and led to the rise of the Safety bicycle. The first was the chain drive, originally used on tricycles, allowing a gear ratio to be chosen independent of the wheel size. The second was the pneumatic bicycle tire, allowing smaller wheels to provide a smooth ride.

Although the trend was short-lived, the penny-farthing became a symbol of the late Victorian era. Its popularity also coincided with the birth of cycling as a sport.
