1. Relax and concentrate on the 4 small dots in the middle of the picture for about 30-40 seconds
2. Then, take a look at a wall near you (any smooth, single coloured surface)
3. You will see a circle of light developing
4. Start blinking your eyes a couple of times and you will see a figure emerging...
5. What do you see? Moreovere, who did you see?
There are two kinds of criticism:
(1) Unjustified criticism. One day Henry Ward Beecher went to his church to preach. As the great orator placed his Bible on the pulpit he noticed a blank sheet of paper with the word "fool" written on it. Beecher's keen sense of humour seized the moment. He lifted the paper for all to see, then his booming voice filled the church as he announced, "Generally I receive letters from people who write and forget to sign their name. This letter is different. The person has signed his name but forgotten to write the letter." Jesus said, "Offences will come" (Luke 17:1). So expect them. And remember, attack is a sign of respect. You're getting noticed. You're making a difference. So when you are criticised unjustly, forget it and move on. Jesus did!
(2) Justified criticism. Criticism that's justified has a measure of truth in it. An old Arab proverb states, "If one person calls you a donkey, forget it. But if five people call you a donkey, buy a saddle." Dr. James G. Kerr, a management psychologist, points out that a major deterrent to gaining information about ourselves lies in our natural reluctance to discover anything about ourselves that isn't flattering. When we erect defences against our own inadequacies and try to hide our faults from ourselves and others, we close the door to a vital source of self-knowledge and therefore deny ourselves the joy of Spiritual growth. Stop hiding from the truth. Every one of us can improve what we're doing and the way in which it's being done. As they say, "The largest room in the world - is room for improvement!"

I have tried the emergency number 112. It really works as described even if the keyboard is locked! If anyone has successfully tried the second one, please do leave a comment.
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
SECOND: Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having todrive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!"
THIRD: Hidden Battery
PowerImagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.
FOURTH: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone! e: * # 0 6 # A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
When we look at the security issues around and the current human condition, we thought that all trust amongst human being is now lost. But I can assure you that this is not so. At our pantry, we still have someone putting something there for sale and you just deposit the money in the money box!

Esther and Janice in London, 17th Feb, 2006. We stayed for only 8 hours in London. I told them that they can go to London anytime if they are studying there.
So I brought them to see some of the tourist places... St James' Park, London. Those swans in the lake will end up in the cooking pot if they are in Malaysia!
Windermere, Lake District.
On the way to Scarborough.
Eating ice cream in winter!
On departure, I cooked for them a nice meal.
Cooking runs in the family. Stephanie is now expert in preparing sushi. Pictured here are Maki and roto.
