Can I borrow $25?

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'

DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.

SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily.

SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'

The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.'

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and started to think:

Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

'Are you asleep, son?' He asked.

'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy.

'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.'

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled.

'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied.

'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.'

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with someone you love.

If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

Holiday Eyeglass Frames!

Online shopping is one of the things I like to do whenever I want to purchase some products for me be it like clothing, tie, watches, eyeglasses and frames. I can do it at the office, home or at a friend house where internet connection is easily available nowadays. Online shopping is very popular now mainly because of its speed and ease of use.

Christmas holiday season is just one month away and there are so many things to buy for my family, relatives, friends and colleagues for Christmas presents. As for my family members, it is very easy to buy Christmas gifts for them because I knew what they wanted for Christmas. My brother requested me to buy him eyeglasses frames for Christmas present and my nephew requested for a pair holiday frames. He has been reminding me several times already.

I came to know that Zenni Optical do offer quite a lot of Holiday frames at low prices and I’m pleased that there are a huge selection of holiday frames for me to choose from beside other eyeglasses categories. Oh yes, I like what I’m seeing. Besides low priced, most of the frames are of highest quality and the designs are very beautiful. I will buy a few more frames for myself as well.

A little story of Samybulu

Samybulu and Minachi were married for many years, even though they hated each other. When they had a confrontation, screaming and yelling could be heard deep into the night.

Samybulu would shout, 'When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!' Neighbors feared him. They believed he practiced black magic, because of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighborhood. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. To everyone's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 78.

His wife had a closed casket at the wake. After the burial, she went straight to the local bar and began to party, as if there was no tomorrow. Her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, 'Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way up and out of the grave and come back to haunt you for the rest of your life?'

The wife put down her drink and said, 'Let him dig. I had him buried upside down!!! Muahahahaha!!!!!!!

I hate termites

I hate to kill termites. They are sometimes life threatening and generally no more than a nuisance pest. I have this experience of termites attack when I was taking a shower in my bathroom. I didn’t notice any termites at first. Most probably I have disturbed or rather stepped on their nest. They attack the door and window pane very aggressive and I was too shock to see so much termites hidden inside the wooden planks. I have no choice but to call the pest control guys to come in to get rid of them.

NGV - It is safe?

Can the cooking gas cylinder be converted into NGV natural gas tank for cars or vans? If you think it can be done, think twice again. I was reading the Star online news that two brothers illegally modified the cooking gas tank into NGV tank. While they were refueling gas at the Petronas gas station, it suddenly exploded killing one of them.

Now I got to reconsider if I want to convert my car into NGV system. What happens if someone bang-into my rear and I'm exploded into pieces? Oh dear! I'm picking up my phone to call my authorised dealer to put it on hold!

Inconsiderate aunty

Oh my god! the fish I just bought it from the market has been stolen. Lately, there are quite a number of stray cats wondering around at the back of my house. They dirty the place with cat shits, they steals and they breed fast. Last Sunday, I scolded one aunty for releasing 5 stray cats around my house compound. This aunty is not from our neighborhood.

Kanneh! why can't she just send it to the SPCA and solve the problem and give miserable nightmare to others? Anyone want to help me catch this strays?

Comfort the bull

Today's story is about two sisters named Ahlian and AhHuei, both of them inherited the family ranch. Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble. In order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock.

Upon leaving, Ahhuei tells her sister that when she get there, if she decide to buy the bull, she'll contact Ahlian to drive out after her and haul the bull home. Ahhuei arrives at the man's ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she wants to buy it. The man tells her that he will sell it for $599, no less. After paying him, Ahhuei drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram to tell her the news.

She walks into the telegraph office, and says, 'I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I've bought a bull for our ranch. I need her to hitch the trailer to our pickup truck and drive out here so we can haul it home. The telegraph operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then adds, it will cost 99 cents a word. Well, after paying for the bull, Ahhuei realizes that she'll only be able to send her sister one word.

After a few minutes of thinking, she nods and says, I want you to send her the word "comfortable." The operator shakes his head. How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to haul that bull back to your ranch if you send her just the word 'comfortable?'

Ahhuei explains, My sister's Ahlian The word is big. She'll read it very slowly.... 'com-for-da-bul.'

Comparing Credit Card Offers

I believed people do not like to carry a lot of cash in their wallet nowadays. One of the main factors is that people feared of being robbed by the bad bandits. There is a substitute way of paying your goods and services by way of credit. Although it is a piece of card, it is as good as cash. Credit cards are accepted worldwide and normally a credit limit is assigned to the card depending on one’s financial status. Would you believe me that I say many of us used to carry more than one Kredit Cards in our wallet?

When applicants apply for a credit card, usually they’ll do a research and compare card offers. In many cases, the first criteria people look for is zero annual fee followed by attractive low interest rate and balance transfer. Business is so competitive nowadays that in order to retain customers, many credit card companies have their own marketing plan, strategy or incentives to keep their customers intact. One of them is the reward points where they can accumulate reward points for exchange of electrical items offered by them.

There are so many credit card providers for you to choose from at this website. Whether it is CITI credit cards or others, I trust that you’ll choose wisely. Let us not forget that when you sign on credit, make sure you pay up in full when the statement come. If not, interest will be charged on the outstanding amount thus the longer you delay your payment the higher interest you have to pay.

Boss and his secretary

Boss walked into the office one morning not knowing that his zipper was down. His secretary walked up to him and asked, Boss this morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?

This was not a phrase that her Boss understood, so he went into his office looking a bit puzzled. When he was about done with his paper work, he suddenly noticed that his Zipper was not zipped up. He zipped up and remembering what his secretary had told him, finally understood.

He then intentionally went out to ask for a cup of coffee from his secretary. When he reached her desk, He said; When you saw the garage door open did you see my jaguar parked in there?

The secretary smiled for a moment and said, 'No, Boss I didn't. All I saw was a Kancil 600cc with 2 flat tires. Muahahahahaha!!!!
