Hair Spray.


I accompanied my wife and daughters to the saloon this afternoon…the Saloon is operated in a low-cost apartment converted into a ‘low cost unisex saloon’ by a lady dog lover.

Perming and styling for the three of them cost $105.00…for the same services rendered by a fancier saloon would have cost between $350 to a $1000…..for that saving…it was worthwhile to bear the discomfort and possibly having to share the same cutting utensils with her dogs (very adorable). Desperate time calls for desperate cost cutting measures.

While the proprietor was styling my family’s hair inside her saloon….her husband was styling and cutting the furs of her precious dog outside.

The wife is gifted hair stylist. Sam and my daughters (me included) were extremely happy. Her husband did a good job on the dog(s).

Come see styling on the dog…that bear testimony on my words.>>>talkthreetalkfour.blogspot.com

SUNSCREEN.

** Read it…trust me on the Sunscreen

SUNSCREEN : Baz Luhrmann

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97. Wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you one tip for the future, sunscreen
would be it. The
long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the
rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my
own meandering
experience... I will dispense this advice now

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh,
nevermind, you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until
they've faded. But trust
me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself
and recall in a way
you can't grasp now, how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous
you really looked. You are NOT as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that
worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by
chewing bubblegum. The
real toubles in life are apt to be things that never
crossed your worried
mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle
Tuesday

Do one thing everyday that scares you.

Sing.

Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't
put up with people who
are reckless with your's.

Floss.

Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're
ahead, sometimes you're
behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with
yourself.

Remember compliments you receive. Forget the
insults. If you suceed in doing
this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank
statements.

Stretch.

Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do
with your life.
The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22
what they wanted to do
with their lives; some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still
don't.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're
gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll
have children, maybe you
won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40. Maybe you'll dance
the funky chicken on
your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do,
don't congratulate
yourself too much or berate yourself either - your
choices are half chance,
so are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can... don't be
afraid of it, or what
other people think of it... it's the greatest instrument
you'll ever own.

Dance... even if you have nowhere to do it but in
your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines they will only make
you feel UGLY.

CHORUS
Brother and sister together we'll make it through.
Someday your spirit will take you and guide you there.
I know you've been hurting, but I've been waiting to be there for you.
And I'll be there just helping you out whenever I can.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they
might be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings; they're your best link to your
past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future

Understand that friends come and go, but for the
precious few you should
hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography
and lifestyle because the
older you get, the more you need the people you knew
when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes
you hard. Live in
Northern California once, but leave before it makes
you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths. Prices will rise,
Politicians will
philander, you too will get old. And when you do, you'll
fantasize that when
you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians
were noble, and children
respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe
you have a trust fund,
maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never
know when either one might
run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're
40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with
those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia; dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past
from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly
parts, and
recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

CHORUS

Everybody's free. Everybody's free.

Butterfly Kisses.

Picture: Little Anita of *Mirnar88 ( My dearest friend )

Art and Editing: Robert Lau

This is one of the most beautiful WEDDING SONGS.

Butterfly Kisses Lyrics – Bob Carlisle

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's
daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes and
I thank god for all the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her
hair; "Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
In all that I've done wrong I know I must
have done something right to deserve a hug
every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.

But I remember
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; sticking
little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy, But if you
don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time."
With all that I've done wrong I must have done
something right to deserve her love every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly.

She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over...gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk my down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry!"

Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have
done something right.
To deserve your love every morning and butterfly
kisses-I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.

I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.

ROGUE.

Rogue means RED in French.

Red is a very Auspicious color for the Chinese…it symbolizes everything good….WEALTH …HEALTH and LONGEVITY…..the essences of HAPPINESS of the very pragmatic Chinese community.

It is also very GOOD Feng Shui to hang the Picture in the living room.

So download / upload it or whatever and hang it in the living room.

breakfast at tiffany....almost




Breakfast at tiffany…almost.

I took Sam to the market…decided to pop in to the coffeeshop for breakfast.

I had ‘Char-kui-teow’….fried noodles… [.EXTRA Chilli..boss!...raw cockles..ALSO!!! ]

..2 half boil eggs and iced tea.

Health Rating: TOO RICH…maybe Hazardous to the BACKDOOR….(too spicy).

I was down with flu that evening and was centrifugally morbid for a week…popping anti-biotic and painkillers like jelly beans….going about not knowing what to do or what not to do…to summarize mildly…..I was ZOMBIFIED.

Go feast your eyes on my breakfast >>>> talkthreetalkfour.blogspot.com

CHINAMAN - Organic farm.

Organic Farm.

The Old Uncle is a Chinese from the Tai Poo Hakka Clan…and typical of a Tai Poo

…they are frugal….honest and hardworking. The backyard was converted into an organic farm..…cultivating a variety of greens the “old ways”, without the aids of fertilizers or pesticides, harnessing the richness of the land. Uncle has been cultivating the land for the past 40 years.

The produce is sold at the local market earning a few dollars a day as extra income…enough to get by and to raise a family frugally. Uncle was a rubber tapper.

His children are all grown up and “Professional”…having families of their own…living in the suburban modern housing estates.

Uncle stays behind with his wife.

si tenggang's homecoming.


si tenggang's homecoming by Muhammad Haji Salleh.

i

the physical journey that i traverse
is the journey of the soul,
transport of the self from a fatherland
to a country collected by sight and mind.
the knowledge the sweats from it
is estranger's experience,
from one who had learnt to see, reflect
and choose between
the challenging actualities.

ii

its true i have growled at my mother and
grandmother,
but only after having told them my predicament
that they have never brought to consideration
the wife that i began to love in my loneliness,
in the country that alienated me,
they enveloped in their pre-judgement.
i have not entirely returned, i know,
having been changed by time and place.
coarsed by problems
estranged by absence.

iii

but look.
i have brought myself home,
seasoned by faith.
broadened by land and language,
i am no longer afraid of the oceans
of the difeerences between people,
no longer easily snared
no words of ideas

the journey was a loyal teacher,
who was never tardy
in explaning cultures and variousness.
look i am just like you.
still malay,
sensitive to what
i believe is good,
and more ready to understand

than my brothers.
the contents of these boats are yours too,
because i have returned.

iv

travel makes me
a seeker who does not take
what is given without sincerity
or that which demands payment from
beliefs.
the years at sea and in coastal state
have thought me to choose,
to accept only those tested by
comparison,
or that which matches the roads of my
ancestors,
which returns me to my village
and its comppleteness.

v

i've leanrt
the ways of the rude,
to hold actuality in a new logic,
debate with hard and loud facts.
but i too
have humanity, respecting
man and life.

vi

i am not a new man,
not very different
from you;
the people and cities
of coastal ports
thought me not to brood
over a foreign world,
suffer difficulties
or fear possibilities.

i am you,
freed from the village,
its soils and ways,
independent, because
i have found myself.

Homeless.



Last night……while I was walking to the car park…I saw this dog all by itself …LOST.

I tried to coerce him to come home with me…but failed. I wished Sam was with me as she is very good with animals.

I brought out some biscuits and sweets ….left it near him before I drove off.

GOOD LUCK BOY!!!!

Chocolate Factory.

video video video video

Chocolate Factory.

I took my family to the chocolate factory this afternoon to replenish our monthly chocolate supply that turned fortnightly eversince I stopped smoking about a month ago.

To compensate the withdrawal symptoms…I developed an urged for chocolates….and I have been having untold amount of the “brownish gold”.

My family is not complaining… because they too get to savor more of this “heavenly gold”….they help me with the shopping…..needless to say

…it burnt a big hole in my pocket.

While I was there…I met a very photogenic sweet lovely young lady ….who made a friendly gesture to greet me…honorably as one would when greeting a senior.

…*spot her in two scene ....( I made a mental note to ask Sam to get some chocolates for her)….forgot about her completely because I was too engrossed in trying out the Durian chocolate…REAL DURIAN encrusted in chocolate…..to die for, so to speak.

*anybody who knows this lovely lady…..let her know that I owe her some chocolates… and that I would refer her to the Talent Scout.

Tour de Chocolate >>>> talkthreetalkfour.blogspot.com

p/s…Whisky so helpfully stored the chocolates…without even being told..:hmm:
