Bookmarks



These pictures were created by Cia Pey. We turned them into bookmarks.  They are to be given away during a class meeting this Christmas2019.

Your Phone app from Microsoft

Just got my Samsung Note 8 connected to my notebook using the Your Phone app from Microsoft.  Limited use.  Can only view recent photos (25 in number), phone text messages and phone notifications.

The mobile photos can be easily moved to my notebook.  Simply Copy and Paste.

Give it a try.

However I prefer new DeX feature available from Samsung Note 10.  A feature a just discovered from YouTube and from the Samsung website.  Wonder when I can afford a new Note 10!!

Termite prevention

Better get the termite treatment done at the start of any house renovation.  The pest control man is shown here pumping liquid chemicals into the ground surrounding the house.  He will be spraying chemicals onto the roof rafters and into the electrical wall sockets.

Goodbye termites ..... for the time being as the chemicals will wear off.  Guarantee period is 10 years.


Never tired of setting up a Christmas tree.

Christmas always brings back very fond memories of family and friends.  And I never forget Christ who makes it all possible.

This old Christmas tree from home now has a new location at 15 Clarke Street.


These are the new decor for the tree.

Difference between a Successful Life and a Significant Life

What is the difference between a successful life and a significant life?

“The happiest people in the world are not the richest, best looking or most powerful; they are people who find value, meaning and purpose in selfless service and making a positive difference in the lives of others.”
-Michael Josephson

Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to your maximum potential, sowing seeds that benefit others.

John Maxwell writes about 5 differences:-

Five Differences Between Success and Significance
1. Motives
With success, my motives may be selfish; with significance, my motives cannot be selfish.
2. Influence
With success, my influence is limited; with significance, my influence is unlimited.
3. Time
Success can last a lifetime; significance can last several lifetimes.
4. Focus
Success asks, “How can I add value to myself?” Significance asks, “How can I add value to others?”
5. Reward
If I pursue success, my joy is the result of my success; if I pursue significance, my joy is the result of others’ success.

Success is usually the steppingstone to significance. There has to be a certain amount of success in people’s lives before they are willing to take the step to significance, where they ask themselves, “What else is there in life beyond professional and monetary success?”

Health Awareness Symposium


YB Dr Lee Boon Chye launched the event on alcohol and smoking related health problems.  He mentioned lung injury caused by vaping.  A new term has been coined; EVALI - E-cigarette and Vaping Associated Lung Injury.  Vitamin E acetate found in THC containing vape products has been identified as the possible culprit causing severe lung injury resulting in death.

Buntung Polyclinic has a good Quit Smoking service.  Counseling and Nicotine Replacement Products are available for smokers, so is Champix which is an oral medication for smoking cessation.  They also have an exhaled CO detection device to find out whether smokers are compliant with the anti-smoking cessation programme.
