Comparison Is Odious: So Just Be Yourself

Comparison has been the norm for us and it is a fact that a lot of us live a life full of comparison. However when we compare ourselves with others, we will become vain, better or worse still-both. The again when we compare, there will always be people better or worse than us. Hence comparison is really odious.

 photo 02 Comparison Is Odious-Be Yourself_zps3cupl3wd.jpg

Be prepared to be frustrated if you were to make comparisons. Joan Welch once said, "you can't clear your own fields while counting the rocks on your neighbour's farm." The grass may always appear to be greener on the other side of the fence, but you probably have more of it to mow. Amusingly, this is something that most of us have failed to be aware. Hills look small and green from a long way off.

Every man must do two things alone:
he must do his own believing and and his own dying.
~Martin Luther~

Like it or not when you compare your life to that of others, you will definitely be wasting your own precious time and energy. Likewise, life will be a tonne more fun if you cease to keep score with others. Success really is about doing what you do best and not worrying about what others are going to do. Most of the time your very own success or failure lies within yourself. So look at the man in the mirror, and that's the person whom you really need to be worried about.

 photo 03 Comparison Is Odious-Be Yourself_zpswut9vasa.jpg

Ponder about what Earl Nightingale once said, "Are you motivated by what you really want out of life, or are you mass-motivated? So you have to ensure that you decide what you really want deep down inside of you instead of wanting something because others have it. Most importantly don't live a life just for the sake of impressing others. That defeats the very purpose of being alive in the first place. Do you say, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be," or do you compare and utter, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people?"

 photo 04 Comparison Is Odious-Be Yourself_zpsxwyd22qq.jpg

We shouldn't be dwelling on someone's weakness. The more we do the more it will affect our sence of well-being or happiness. It's time to wake up. It's time to create our very own blueprint instead of trying to outdo others in their own games. It's time to snap out of this vicious comparison cycle and remove the limit off ourselves.

 photo 01 Comparison Is Odious-Be Yourself_zpsm6hjfm0v.jpg

Never think that you are on the right road just because it's a well-beaten path. The greatest risk in life is to wait for and rely on others for your sense of security and satisfaction. Stop measuring yourself with another man's coat. Don't evaluate yourself through someone's else eyes. Stop comparing. Be yourself and excel in being who you really are. :)

Starting Your Own Ecommerce Website

Starting your own ecommerce website involves a lot of considerations. For one thing, people have to decide what they're selling. Lots of people more or less want to be able to start ecommerce websites for their own sake. That's fine, but it can lead to some people creating businesses that are unfocused and lacking in a plan. The people who decided in advance that they want to be able to sell certain products as opposed to the people who decided in advance that they want to be able to sell anything are going to have better luck in many cases.

 photo ecommerce_zps7jwndugo.jpg

It's also important to figure out the ecommerce platform in advance. Some people are going to want to start their business websites from scratch. They might start their websites on Wordpress or similar websites that provide blog templates but nothing else. These people are going to have a lot of freedom when it comes to marketing their products and their websites on Twitter and other social media websites, which is one of the reasons why some people are drawn to creating ecommerce platforms like that. However, they're also not going to get any of the advantages that people would normally get by using the best e commerce solutions from WSM or other shortcuts. There are more established websites that will offer people ecommerce platforms, and these will often spare them some of the initial difficult aspects of the setup.

 photo Ecommerce-PNG_zpsdraeup94.png

Starting your own ecommerce website is also partly about developing a marketing plan. Lots of people focus too much on the web design aspects and many of the other initial parts of the setup. However, at the end of the day, it is more important that people are able to get the word out about their products. People could have the best ecommerce platform in the world and if no one knows about it, it functionally would not matter whether it was the best or the worst ecommerce platform in the world.

The Internet is huge and people have so many choices that grabbing their attention is everything, especially in the beginning of an ecommerce business. It should be noted that since the Internet is so big and people really do have so many choices, it does ultimately all come down to grabbing the attention of a few people. No one needs to appeal to everyone on the Internet. Having a devoted consumer base of around a few tens of thousands can be enough, and it is certainly possible to do that in the world of the Internet, where there are more than two billion users. The best e commerce solutions from WSM can certainly help the people who are trying to get started. Starting your own ecommerce website is actually the easy part at the end of the day. The harder part is making sure that people are going to be able to recognize all of that hard work, getting their attention, and keeping their attention in such a competitive and complicated online landscape.

Asus Zenfone C-An Affordable Entry Smartphone

Gone are the days when smartphones which were capable of doing a lot of stuff are expensive. Now you can easily own an affordable smartphone that can do pretty much what a premium one could offer. Introducing Asus sleek Zenfone C which is not only cheap, but also boast decent specs and good user interface. Asus Zenfone C is the kind of smartphone that is ideal for emerging markets where demands for budget-centric smartphones are high such as India and Indonesia.

 photo 01 Asus Zenfone C_zpsl6au7qiu.png
Stunningly elegant design.

Asus Zenfone C sports the similar look that its more expensive siblings have. The most distinguished design that Zenfones have is the stunningly beautiful concentric right pattern that seems to be glimmering all the time. The silver capacitive buttons right below the screen make easy for users to locate them even without backlighting. The built is pretty sturdy and the back is nicely curved to give users a better grip of the phone while using it. The matte texture of the cover gives the phone a slight premium feel to it.

 photo 02 Asus Zenfone C Screen_zpsd4ljavos.png

Under the hood, Asus Zenfone C is powered by Intel Multi-core Atom clocked at 1.2GHz. Albeit a bit slow, it will be more than sufficient for users to run most of the basic apps and functions. There will be 1GB of RAM to help smoothen up thins a bit to support the processor. Though there is only 8GB of internal storage at your disposal, potential buyers will be happy to note that Asus Zenfone C supports a whopping 64GB microSD card. This alone makes it attractive for a lot of buyers who would love to store a lot of photos and songs on their phone.

 photo 07 Asus Zenfone C PixelMaster_zpsqa74bb8d.png
PixelMaster will be able to let you snap better photos.

The front of Zenfone C features a 4.5inch screen that has a slightly low resolution of 480x854 pixels. Besides being equipped with energy-saving Bluetooth 4.0, it also has the usual connectivity such as Wi-Fi b/g/n, accelerator, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. The 5.0 MP rear camera will be enough for your usual snapshots but I doubt the front-facing VGA camera will suffice for those who love to take selfies. The good news is, Asus compensated for this shortcoming with its in-house PixelMaster Technology which will improve the quality of your photos. So smile. :)

 photo 05 Asus Zenfone C Zen Ui_zps0k5ata0b.jpg
Beautiful Zen UI

 photo 06 Asus Zenfone C Whats Next_zpsacnelinp.png What's Next?

One of the highlight of Zenfone C is of course its sleek Asus ZenUI. After toying with the Asus Zenfone C that I bought for my daddy for his birthday, I have to admit that ZenUI is really good. Apart from being elegantly beautiful, the simplistic features of ZenUI make it very pragmatic and easy to use. Its intuitive What's Next and Do It Later features will surely be handy for those who want to be more productive. All in all, ZenUI is truly one of the biggest attractions for owning a Zenfone C.

Experience Asus Zen UI

The call quality of Zenfone C is outstanding and the speaker which is amplified by SonicMaster technology makes listening to music really a joy. Likewise the efficient 2,100mAh battery provides all the necessary juice for Zenfone C to last for more than 1 day. Running on Android 4.4 (KitKat), this Dual-sim, Dual-standby Zenfone C will be ideal for those who are on a tight budget or first time buyer without really compromising on functionalities. So will you get this Asus Zenfone C for a price tag of RM400 (Rs 5,999)?

Honey Lemon Juice For Cough & Phelgm

The rather erratic weather has taken a toll on everyone including me. A lot of us (in Malaysia) are suffering from coughs and at times phlegm. Perhaps I was too exhausted and that's why I was caught off guard by those nasty germs that took me down with some bad coughs. It appears that over the counter drug is no longer effective in combating these normal diseases such as cough. I guess It is time for us to return to mother nature to seek for her help? After scouring the Internet for remedies, I have finally found a concoction that I can stomach. Ha :D

 photo 01 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zps7sdyfbps.jpg
Let's make honey lemon juice.

I am sure you have drunk Honey Lemon juice before in cafe or restaurant right? But do you know that these two seemingly normal ingredients are very, very effective in helping us to cure certain diseases? Let's talk about honey first shall we? Firstly honey has been proven to be effective to help reduce coughing. In fact honey has be found to be a rich demulcent that can help to relieve irritation and inflammation. So in other words, honey can help to provide a soothing layer to coat the irritated throat. Apart from that, honey also possesses powerful antibacterial ability that can help counter cough which is caused by bacteria infection. By the way, please make sure that you honey is organic and sugar-free. :)

 photo Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm Pure Honey_zpseeezjazh.jpg
Must be pure honey ok. :D

Lemon is yet another excellent fruit which we often take for granted. Just like honey, lemon contains antibacterial properties as well and this makes it a potent ingredient to fight against bacterial illnesses. Moreover, the vitamin C that is packed inside of this mighty citrus can boost our immune system to boost our immune system. Interestingly, the juice extracted from lemon can help to loosen those sickening mucous and phlegm. I tried and it worked like (almost) magic. So if you have cough and phlegm, you might want to try lemon. :)

 photo 02 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpstc9yivi3.jpg
It is said that if you soak your lemon in hot water for an hour,
you will be able to "milk out" more lemon juice.

Let's extract the juice...

 photo 05 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsn12ul0kw.jpg
Eww...I can already feel how sour it is...

 photo 06 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsuwlu1xwf.jpg

 photo 07 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpslayetajw.jpg
Add some water and a spoon of organic honey.
Do make sure that your spoon is not made of metal or else the honey will oxidized.

I hope both these natural remedies of honey and lemon can help to reduce your cough and phlegm folks. After all too much over-the-counter medicine is not good for our health right? Over-dependence on drugs might  even aggravate the situation besides ruining our internal organs. Hence it makes perfect sense in the long run to rely on Mother Nature to cure us. Enjoy your honey lemon juice folks. :)

 photo 08 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsejsysiu8.jpg
Drink this honey lemon concoction a few times a day and you will feel much better soon. :)

Happy Birthday Daddy @ PappaRich [2015]

Time flies and another year has gone...and last week we celebrated my beloved daddy's birthday. The wrinkles around his eyes and the creases on his forehead show how he has aged. So on his birthday, wifey, our 2 babies and I brought our Papa to Pappa Rich for his birthday dinner. Ha :D Usually we will bring daddy to a cafe for dinner because (sometimes) he is a picky eater. :p Initially we wanted to have our dinner at old BUT...Old Town is really lousy place to dine in right now (terrible food), hence we decided to give daddy a feast at Pappa Rich instead.

 photo 01 Happy Birthday Daddy  PappaRich 2015_zpsduhiujua.jpg
It's your big day daddy. :)

I personally love Pappa Rich a lot because of the conducive environment which exudes such a calming ambiance that makes us feel right at home. When we arrived at its doorstep, there was no other customer...maybe because of its price? Though the food and beverage can be slightly pricier, I don't really mind because the food that Pappa Rich serves is really scrumptious and the portion is quite big. Yep! So you don't feel like you are being short-changed while dining here. Period.

Wifey and Jasmine girl.

Both Daddy and wifey ordered Nasi Lemak With Curry Chicken while I chose to try their chicken rice. Just look at the chili sambal that we were served. Not only was the sambal tasty, PappaRich was also very generous by giving us a lot of sambal (something that Old Town has failed terribly). Likewise my Chicken Rice was really good as well. Just like the curry chicken, the flesh of the "white" chicken was really tender and juicy, something that a lot of similar cafes (Old Town :/) couldn't really offer. The bean sprouts were crunchily toothsome with a hint of saltiness which I really like. To top it off, the chili paste that comes with the chicken rice was really appetizing which made everything that shoved into my mouth tasted so much more delectable. Ha :D

So what did our two rambunctious babies had for their dinner? Besides sharing our Nasi Lemak and Chicken Rice, we ordered steamed bread and Pappa Naan. This Pappa Naan with curry sauce is really a must have when you patronize Pappa Rich. The Ouh-so-creamy curry sauce really brings out the best in the texture of fluffy naan. Every bite will leave you satisfied and your taste buds gratified ( rhymes). All in all, we enjoyed our dinner and my Daddy certainly had a great birthday feast to say the least. :)

Pappa Naan-highly recommended.

Let's makan. :)

What birthday would be complete without a cake right? My daddy was grinning from ear to ear the moment we took out his birthday cake. More importantly Daddy was happy because his two little grandchildren were beside him to sing his birthday cake as well. Perhaps his two boisterous grandkids are the best birthday gift I could give him every year as a son. LOL We bought tiramisu cake for daddy. I think the cake looked rather special because on top of it was a cup with overflowing coffee...or maybe chocolate. :)

Ok~it's time to switch off the lights.

Let's blow the candle.

Happy Birthday daddy.

Last but not least was my father's birthday gift. However we didn't give my daddy his birthday gift immediately after eating his cake. Therefore my daddy assumed that there would be no gift for him. After all we had treated him to a hearty birthday dinner and then presented him with a birthday cake. Ha ;D When he was no suspecting anything (notice that he was wearing his normal shirt), out came a small gift. Daddy of course happily received it and started to unwrap his birthday gift. So what did he receive for his birthday?

A new smartphone for you daddy.

Happy Birthday Daddy! Hopefully you will enjoy using this new smartphone of yours. I love you daddy and I know you love me a lot as well. You will always be my hero. Muack :-X
