Creating Own CD

Took some time to learn how to create my own CDs. Bought a software called RONYASOFT to create the labels. The special sticker paper has to be bought separately. Took some time to design the label and also to make sure the size of the paper fits the label. The printed book is in English while the CDs are in Mandarin.

A stylish cut

Cutting paper to bits and pieces will no longer be a boring task from now on.  One can actually create designs when cutting.  

Mein Ding Gallery & Studio

Mr Peter is the owner of the gallery located at Canning Business Centre.  An opening ceremony was held on Friday 23rd November. Had the opportunity to take some interesting photos of the gallery.  Miss Alice Ng will be putting up her art pieces very soon.  Eagerly waiting for her exhibition.

Blue Light

Generally, scientists say the visible light spectrum comprises electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from 380 nanometers (nm) on the blue end of the spectrum to about 700 nm on the red end. (By the way, a nanometer is one billionth of a meter — that's 0.000000001 meter!)

Blue light generally is defined as visible light ranging from 380 to 500 nm.

So approximately one-third of all visible light is considered high-energy visible (HEV) or "blue" light.

Virtually all visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens and reaches the retina. Too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina. This causes changes that resemble macular degeration which can lead to permanent vision loss.

Although more research is needed to determine how much natural and man-made blue light is "too much blue light" for the retina, many eye care providers are concerned that the added blue light exposure from computer screens, smartphones and other digital devices might increase a person's risk of macular degeneration later in life. 

Because short-wavelength, high energy blue light scatters more easily than other visible light, it is not as easily focused. When you're looking at computer screens and other digital devices that emit significant amounts of blue light, this unfocused visual "noise" reduces contrast and can contribute to digital eye strain.

After cataract surgery you might benefit from eyeglasses that have lenses with a special blue light filter — especially if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen or using other digital devices.

How to Live (Christian Perspective)

Mother Teresa said, ‘… the poor come to all of us in many forms. Let us be sure that we never turn our backs on them, wherever we may find them. For when we turn our backs on the poor, we turn them on Jesus Christ.’

Your love is shown especially in what you do for the poor (James 2:v.2–7), the hungry (v.15) and the needy (v.16)

Your faith must be evidenced by your deeds. All the way through the New Testament, these two go together. As do words and actions; proclamation and demonstration; the conversion of individuals and the transformation of society.

In other words, if your faith does not change how you live, it is not real faith at all.

‘You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove’ (James: 2:18, MSG).

Genuine faith will be evidenced by how you live.

This is how a Christian should live:
(by Nicky Gumbel)
Strengthen the weak
We do this through good teaching, encouragement, prayer and building community.

Heal the sick
Honour all those in the medical profession and all those involved in the healing of the sick. You can lay hands on the sick and pray for them in Jesus’ name.

Bind up the injured
There are so many broken people in our society – in the prisons, homeless on the streets and even in the boardrooms of companies. The Spirit of the Lord enables you to bind up the broken-hearted as you pray for them, embrace them, listen to them and care for them in your community.

Go after the strays
There are many prodigal sons and daughters who have strayed from the Father, like lost sheep. Help them come back to the Father’s arms.

Search for the lost
At times, you may have to leave the other sheep to search for the one who is lost, to bring them back to repentance and cause more joy in heaven. (Luke 15:1–7).

Shepherd with justice
Seek justice on behalf of the oppressed, the needy and the poor. We should rescue children, women and men from slavery, bring the perpetrators to justice, set the captives free and care for them.

The tree for season of peace and hope.

The Christmas tree is up.  This year it "grew" up at 15 Clarke Street in 30 minutes. Will light it up soon.  

The first Christmas tree was decorated by Protestant Christians in 16th-century Germany. Our modern Christmas tree evolved from these early German traditions.

I am going to eat the top half of these vegetables and herbs and let the bottom part regenerate into mature plants.  Not sure whether I can regrow them.  Will tell you the results in 4 weeks.
