To Give Or To Take?


Tonight I want to tell a STORY.. ..not real one...
a story a night will make you sleep and not count sheep.....

Here goes....

Once upon a time, there was this Man just loves to give...
God granted his wish... This Man became a generous King...

On the other hand, there was another Man who told God that he just loves taking gifts and money from others....

Well, God granted his wish too..... So... what did he become?

The man became a beggar.... (can always take ma....)
So..moral of the story :
It is always a blessing to Give than to Take...
Giving means you have more than enough... you have abundant ... you have lots to spare....
In Giving, you can make others happy... (but make sure u r also happy la)

(ok ... enough crap... going to sleep and count sheep now)


  1. Its better to give than to recieve.
    We feel happy if we help other people by heart. But I would be very much happy if the person who got help/ gift from me is helping himself not to be lazy. Not only just recieving and pretending they are needy people, but have to help themselves too not to become a beggar. sometimes our kindness would hurt us,because it might make other people abusive.It would bleed our heart.

    there is nothing wrong of giving specially if it came from our heart.

    good night and thanks fo this post claire

  2. Hi Reanaclaire, nice story, ha ha.
    It is good to give without remembering, receive without forgetting.
    And kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

    And a thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all virtues.

    You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart. Lee.

  6. this is a good story is always better than receiving

  7. yes, agree with you.. and the feeling is more rewarding when giving or sharing what we have..

  8. This is so true sis.. Giving is the best way of receiving. If you give it will be given to you back a hundredfold. It is the Lord's way... He opens the heavens and pours down His manifold blessings to those who generously give for His body.

  9. Hi claire. Wah, all your previous post on the foods makes my stomach so hungry. Miss all those foods at home lah.

    Take care. CY

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
