Amazing grace shall always be my song of praise. Nothing better to do on a Thursday night. Tim Hughes said, when we worship, something is going to happen. So, did some amateur recording:-

Incident at the clinic

I was at the clinic this morning due to my fever which comes and go. This morning hit an all time high at 38 degrees. Doctor said my body is quite warm. I had a tingling sensation on my left hand near my finger. A little worried that it could be decompression illness (DCI). Before I digress, so yeah, I was at the clinic. While waiting for my medicine I noticed this old ugly-looking lady in her 40s and her son who was still in his school uniform:

Lady : So tell me, what is your sickness?
Son : (Kept quiet)
Lady : What sick do you have!!!!?
Son : Sick (quietly)
Lady : I know you are sick! That’s why you are here! But what sick are you having!!!????
Son : (Kept quiet, looking scared)
Lady : Tell me!! Tell me!!
Son : …
Lady : You are stupid you know! You tell the doctor later why are you sick! I am not going to tell.
Son : …
Lady : Stand up!!! Then, you won’t be stupid!!! So that your brain can work a bit more!!

Son : (stood up, kept quiet)
Lady : Tell me!! Why are you sick!!? Don’t waste Dr.’s time if you don’t know!! (pull the son’s sleeves) Sit down!!!
Son : (sat down)
Lady : What sickness do you have????!!!! (the cycle goes again)

My gosh. In my heart, I was like “Enough already…!”. What kind of a mother is that? From what I learnt last time from some readings, do not tell your children that they are stupid or else they will believe they are stupid, since you are the most trusted person they ever had. Don’t embarass your son like that in front of the public. I pity the kid, not sure what kind of trauma or impact he will have when he grows up. There goes his self-esteem….

1st Step to Diving – PADI Open Water

When I was younger, I heard of stories Uncle Nick said about diving. “It’s a whole new world down there and you can see how marvelous God is through His underwater creation. There was once I saw this big fish (I think it’s a hammershark whale shark he mentioned), I held on to it and it swam dragging me along.” I told myself, this is a MUST on my to-do list before I leave this earth.

So here am I, signing up for my diving experience.

Theory book which I have to study along the course. Buoyancy was the first chapter.

They say the first equipment you buy for diving should be your mask. It is personal to you.

Hence, I got a Sherwood Oracle mask at a very good price from my instructor.
