Talking about reading, DID YOU KNOW…

Reading is a large town and unitary authority area in the ceremonial county of Berkshire, England.

The name probably comes from the Readingas, an Anglo-Saxon tribe whose name means Reada’s People in Old English, or less probably the Celtic Rhydd-Inge, meaning Ford over the River.

By 1525, Reading was the largest town in Berkshire, and tax returns show that Reading was the 10th largest town in England when measured by taxable wealth.

The town continued to expand in the 20th century, annexing Caversham across the River Thames in Oxfordshire in 1911.

“Angry people are not always wise.” 

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen attended Reading Ladies Boarding School, based in the Abbey Gateway, in 1784–86.

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was imprisoned in Reading Gaol from 1895–97.

After his release, he lived in exile in France and wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol, based on his experience of the execution of Charles Wooldridge, carried out in Reading Gaol whilst he was imprisoned there.

“Just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right.”

The Altitude of Your Attitude


An ATTITUDE can be defined as…

A positive or negative evaluation of people, objects, event, activities, ideas,

or

just about anything in your environment.

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 1 - 21-1-2013

Humans evaluate the acceptability of behavior using social norms and regulate behavior by means of social control.

According to moral values, human behavior may also depend upon the common, usual, unusual, acceptable or unacceptable behavior of others. 

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 2 - 21-1-2013

It is time for some numbers crunching, my dear lovely souls out there reading this post 😀

If A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on…

Match the number equivalent to each letter that forms the word ‘Attitude’ and sum them up.

You will be able to understand why our attitude is playing such an important role in our life.

******

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” 
~ Zig Ziglar

******

Do drop us a comment and tell us the altitude of your attitude (after doing the summing).

Have fun doing the numbers crunching and have a great day ahead!

Till then,

Cheers and TTFN~

I’ve received a notification for our 2nd year with WP during last week but I had to give it a miss on that day due to my health condition.  After resting for almost two weeks, hopefully I am able to get back to whatever I’ve left behind.

This is another song sharing post since my mind decided to play out this song out of the blue (I was not even reading or watching anything related to romance…LOL).

I’ve gotten to know this oldie from a Korean drama “The Last Dance” many years ago and was immediately attracted by its tune and lyrics.

Hope all you lovely souls out there enjoy this sweet song and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful love with us for the past two years.

A THANKFUL CLOUD SAYS…

LOVE YOU ALL 

Till then,

Have a wonderful Monday ahead, always!

I’ve Learned That…


As I was reading a post and made a comment, I started the line with “No Matter What” and the song by BoyZone immediately came into my head.

So, as you lovely souls are aware that I would always make a sudden post whenever a song comes into my head and together with Maya Angelou‘s very enlightening words, I would love to share this beautiful song with you all:

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:

a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

You shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands;

you need to be able to throw something back.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Every day you should reach out and touch someone.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

I still have a lot to learn.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,

but people will never forget how you made them feel.

~ Maya Angelou

No Matter What Happens

Do have a Fabulous Friday

And

A Wonderful Weekend ahead

Till Then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀

Always A Day Away~


Past,Future,Present - 7-12-2012

One fine day, a lady was inside a mall doing her Christmas shopping. Her eyes immediately brightened up when she noticed a poster outside one of her favourite shops:

” ENJOY A DISCOUNT OF 99%  ON ALL ITEMS, STARTING FROM TOMORROW!!”

The next day, she happily skipped into the shop and started putting things into her cart without even looking at the price tags, why bother?

Her eyes almost popped out when the cashier informed her the final amount to be paid.

“Why is it still so expensive? You didn’t even apply the discount.”

The lady glared at the young cashier.

“Please…read…the…poster…aloud…”

The cashier requested in a stammering tone and so, the lady started reading it out loud.

” ENJOY A DISCOUNT OF 99%  ON ALL ITEMS, STARTING FROM TOMORROW…”

The moral of this story:

TODAY is a present but you can always enjoy a good discount during TOMORROWs!!

May this short and hopefully laughable story prepare you for a great day ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

What Do You Do With That Time?


What Can You Do During A 4-Minute Wait?

😀 Look Around You 😀

😀 Get Enlightened By A Sign 😀

Upgrading

A few weeks ago, I was waiting for a bus and from my SG-Bus App,  it would take another 4 minutes for the bus to reach my stop.

If you lovely souls are frequent bus commuters, you all ought to know that the longest 1 minute in life is to wait for the bus to arrive…LOL…and YES! I’ve had 4 loooonnnnggggg minutes to wait under the hot sun during that day.

I decided not to waste those 4 minutes by staring into the space and started looking around as if searching for something interesting, even if it were to be a bird looking for food.

Just as I turned my head around, I spotted the above ‘Lift Upgrading’ slogan behind me and immediately, I retrieved my mobile phone and took a quick shot after spotting my bus.

Guess what? Those 4 looooonnnggggg minutes had slipped by so quickly when we tend to get enlightened…LOL… 😉

Here are the actual words just in case the ones in the picture are not clear:

Remaking Our Heartland

Realise – Rejuvenate – Regenerate

Lift Upgrading

Here’s my version, inspired by this slogan:

EMBRACING OUR INNER SELF

Realise – Rejuvenate – Regenerate

LIFE UPGRADING

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
~ William James

A computer program or phone application need constant upgrading/updating in order to become better and more user-friendly.

If you lovely souls have managed to finish watching the above video, have you constantly ask your inner self the availability of your next upgrade?

If your life = 28,835 days

Have you already started upgrading your life yet?

If your answer is yes,

😀 CONGRATULATIONS! 😀

If no,

😉 NO WORRIES, IT IS STILL NOT TOO LATE FOR YOU TO START! 😉

Have a wonderful and uplifting day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Don’t Numb It, Love It!


The pains are back to haunt me for the past few weeks, well..hmm…even as I am typing out this post.

ლ(`ー´ლ)  BUT NO WORRIES, MY LOVELY FRIENDS!! ლ(`ー´ლ)

I can still manage them for they are really nothing when compared to the past and this message that I’ve received today has pinned a BIGGER SMILE on my already smiling face…hehe…

☜(⌒▽⌒)☞ This is the reason why I love this Facebook App so, so, sooo much (feeling so much blessed!):

14MAR2014 - LOVE YOUR PAINS

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.

~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

LOVING YOUR PAIN(S)?

I BET ALL LOVELY SOULS OUT THERE CAN DEFINITELY DO IT!

Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead, always!

For All The Wrong Reasons…


CNC-LN016-JUST-A-BULLET

FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS

A Bullet Will Not Kill

Unless A Restless Soul Fires It

For All The Wrong Reasons

***

Alcohol Is Just A Drink

Unless A Melancholy Soul Drinks It

For All The Wrong Reasons

***

Love Is A Virtue

Unless A Heartless Soul Uses It

For All The Wrong Reasons

A man always has two reasons for doing anything:

A good reason and the real reason.

~ J. P. Morgan

Whether is it for a good or a real reason, we do know that everything happens for a reason

AND

It is entirely up to us to understand every reason behind

SO THAT

We can accept and start learning from all the things that had already happened in our lives;

may it be good or bad.

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀
