Law Of Attraction: Aim The Powerful Intentions At Yourself

Do you know why you are doing what you are doing today? More importantly, are you doing whatever you are doing because it is what you intended to?

Intended to or your intention, what do you think they mean? According to the dictionary, the meaning of intention is an aim or plan that guides your action. Most people would relate intentions to achieving some sort of targets, objectives or goals. They are right as everyone need to have a series of intentions in order to achieve a goal. Intentions are the push that allows you to achieve whatever you want in your life.

How about powerful intention then? According to the law of attraction, your intentions will be one of the driving forces that help you to take a greater charge of your life. Without it, you will have no direction, no focus and what more, to have any enthusiasms. Being enthusiastic adds energy to your intention and your focus on whatever you want to control in your life. Powerful intention enables the forces of the Universe to be aligned with you to make even an unlikely possibility become possible.

Just as if you choose to run a full marathon. Yes, 26.2 miles or 42.2 kilometers. Are you running it because you want to or because someone else has influenced you with their own intentions or it is just so to save face. Unless it is for your very own intention to test the challenge, it will not receive the power you need to strive for quality. Simply said, it is not a powerful intention.

So why do you want to run a full marathon? In all fairness, this is a reasonable question considering there are substantial risks that goes into meeting the challenge and achieving a completion for the distance. If you are running because you want to realize your own potential with a personal best timing, then this will be the power that drives you to strive to qualify as a full-fledged marathoner. Powerful intentions develop commitment and determination. Else the road to glory will be hard, long and a slow progress. Remember, a running marathon is a running marathon and a walking marathon is a walking marathon. Do not confuse between the two and deny yourself of the actual truth.

Whatever it is that you want to do or change in your life revolves around your energized intentions. Powerful intentions give you the fortitude to face the adversity. So make your intentions personal and starting aiming them at yourself.

• Start evaluating and list down what you want to change or control in your life.
• Be serious and share your intentions with people who will lend their unwavering support in order to keep you on track.
• Take the inspired actions that demonstrate your commitment towards your intentions.
• Acknowledge that you have taken the necessary steps and you are progressing accordingly to the next.

So let’s ask the question again. Do you know why you are doing what you are doing today?

My Bubble: From Lake To Lake ...

There was indeed alot of activities to be enjoyed in Rotorua but unfortunately we couldn't really spare so much time in one place. Just for the thermal park attractions, we could only visit the most popular Wai-O-Tapu, out of the 3 popular spots which included Orakei Korako Cave & Thermal Park and Waimangu Volcanic Valley. Not to mention foregoing the many bubbling mud pools and hot thermal springs to soak in. Cultural attractions was an intended missed as were the extreme sports like bungy-jumping, tandem skydive and white-water rafting. There wasn't any time to spare for lo kong to try his hand at trout fishing or fly fishing in Lake Rotorua!

Not intended to grumble about an otherwise great vacation, we have to continue our journey. After all, we've only got another week to enjoy our campervan adventure.

I had planned to visit the Buried Village on our way out of Rotorua but unfortunately, we were late. We reached almost to closing time. Lucky for us, one of the staff pointed us to a hidden spot for some scenic sunset view over Lake Tarawera. Though we didn't stay long enough for the sunset, the view was fantastic! I was so envious of the homes that stood by the lake edge.


Poetry: Words To Live By

Poetry by: Rebecca Barlow Jordan

It's not how much you accomplish in life
that really counts,
but how much you give to other.

It's not how high you build your dreams
that makes a difference,
but how high your faith can climb.

It's not how many goals you reach,
but how many lives you touch.

It's not who you know that matters,
but who you are inside.

Believe in the impossible,
hold tight to the incredible,
and live each day to its fullest potential.
You can make a difference
in your world.

Just Laughs: Lemon Juice

Once there was a bartender who claimed he was the strongest man on earth, he could squeeze every drop of juice out of a lemon and he bet $10,000 that no one could squeeze anymore out of a lemon he has squeezed

People came in from all over the country, body builders, weight lifters, wrestlers, or anyone that wanted to try. But no one could squeeze anymore juice out of the lemons.

Then one day a little nerdy looking guy walks in and everyone laughs at him when they hear he is there to try to squeeze a lemon. So the bartender squeezes a lemon into a cup an hands him what is left over. Then the guy squeezes out 6 more drops of juice, and everyone is amazed! "What do you do for a living?" they would ask, "Are you a weight lifter, a body builder?"

"No", he replied. "I work for the IRS."

My Bubble: My Luckiest Trip Ever!!

It was a dream come true holiday for me as I’ve been longing to visit this country for ages. It can be considered to be my most relaxed and enjoyable 2-week vacation ever!

A momento from Skycity Hamilton ...
lo kong forgot to keep one from  Skycity Auckland
We took a 10-day scenic drive in a campervan, exploring the countryside and several small towns around the North Island in New Zealand. Regretfully, two weeks were just not enough as we only managed to hurriedly cover less than half within that time span. Not to mentioned, having to accommodate hubby’s passion for running when we scheduled timely connections for a day’s full marathon run in Auckland and another for a half-marathon nearby the seaside city of Napier. At the end of our campervan adventure, we return to Auckland and did a closing ceremony of our wonderful holiday at the Skycity Casino.

I had never been successful at gambling although I’ve been to Genting Highlands on so many occasions. The casinos are usually the luckier than me. Not feeling any luckier that day, I asked from hubby one NZ$2 coin to give a shot at one of the many slot machines. Should be sufficient, after all I only intended to play on those one cent machines only. Hubby gave 5 coins instead.

Carrying no expectations but only hoping to while my time away while hubby tried his hand on the table games, I scanned around for a one cent machine that would catch my eyes. No sooner I was attracted to a Pink Panther slot machine, put in one coin and started rolling. It was a losing game from the start and I was finally left with only one credit. Well, it’s do or die and I pressed the button expecting to leave. To my surprise, the game was far from over. Something matched and my credit increased topped with several rounds of free games, I continued playing for almost an hour on that machine. My credit point stacked, my capital recouped and my winnings going to as high as NZ$190. My heart was beating faster with every press of the button and gosh, this is only a one cent slot machine. Then greed sets in as I continued playing and lost some of winnings back. I finally decided to cash out before I suffer a heart attack!

It may be a small amount to those seasoned gamblers but never ever could I imagine myself winning anything at gambling, much less winning NZ$150 with only a capital of NZ$2. This is indeed my luckiest trip ever! Now, let’s do a conversion into Malaysian Ringgit. I think it’s more than enough to go for a seafood binge in Port Klang!

This is my cutie friend from Napier ...
See her beautiful long eyelashes?

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Lo kong and I were only away for two weeks. I wonder how bad it could be if it had been a month. This is no different from worklife. Enjoy the holidays and come back to a load of backlog!

Anyway, I am grateful for the 2 weeks holiday in New Zealand with all the new experiences and memorable drives. Been exactly two weeks too since we were back and there are just so much to write about and so much review over our journey. The memories are all still so fresh!

Since returning, I have also been inundated with both renewed opportunities and new opportunities that have been keeping me busy. While I may be busy keeping up with them and keeping my fingers crossed that I do not take more than I can chew, I am ever so thankful for the opportunities all the same.

Just as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “For a tree to become tall it must grow tough roots among the rocks.”

A Note Of Awareness #12

The law of attraction is never bias! It just delivers to you exactly as your heart and mind desires. “Like Attracts Like” ... that’s its pledge of honor!

If you are a happy, upbeat person with a smile for everyone, expect to find friends and good experiences wherever you go. Your thoughts bring those experiences into your life. On the other hand, if you are more like a curmudgeon, with a negative attitude, a sour expression and complains just about everything (including each ache and pain in your body), do not be surprised if people avoid you and disease, disaster and disappointment seem to lurk around every corner.

Understanding the concept of the law of attraction is vital to make it work in a deliberate way in your life!

My Bubble: Riding High In Rotorua ...

We skipped breakfast just to catch Lady Knox but it was worthwhile eventhough we now know it's not so much of a natural geyser. Imagine the works of Mother Nature with a fixed timetable?

Hungry and way past lunch-time, we return to the city centre and had a hearty lunch at a pub called "Pig & Whistle", a local landmark we found on the GPS. As usual, the ferocious appetite that followed our extreme hunger pangs gave way to ambitious ordering. In the end, we had to 'ta pow' my portion which ended finger-licking good in the comfort of our campervan that night.

After our late lunch, we headed to the popular attraction at Skyline Rotorua which is like a mini adventure park for the family. Just on the outskirts of the city, it is set high on the side of Mount Ngongotaha that gave a panoramic view of the city, Lake Rotorua and the surrounding areas. We rode up the hill on the gondola travelling along a 900m cableway to the top complex. It costs us NZ$25 per person and I'd say it's just not worth it! Should have gone for a one-hour horseback trekking adventure instead. It would have been double the price but I am very sure it will be more adventurous for our time (*slight regrets*).

No doubt, the gondola ride up the hill was scenic and the view from the top complex was equally great but the downside was that we paid so much for a ride that lasted no more than 10 minutes one way. We had our free coffee at the Terraces Cafe and took the gondola downhill about half-an-hour later. On our way out, we also grabbed a momento of our ride on the gondola at NZ$35 that came with printouts of our picture in 4 different layouts, 2 keychains and postcards. We can also download more copies of the pictures from their site with a given ID which we did upon our return home. Kinda expensive don't you think?

Despite an original plan to stay 2 nights in Rotorua, we changed our minds and drove on to the next destination.

My Bubble: Lady Knox Doesn't Sing ... She Spews!!!

Lady Knox Geyser spews on the dot daily at 10.15am. Now, you'd wonder how can such a natural phenomenon from Mother Nature could have a fix time to beckon us to have an audience with her? Watch on and find out for yourself ...


My Bubble: A Day In Thermal Wonderland ... Wai-O-Tapu

Up and early, we had to do our dumping and refill the water-tank before 9am if we want to make it to see the Lady Knox at 10.15am at Wai-O-Tapu. It is 27km south of Rotorua which is about 20-25 minutes drive.

A first at this dumping and refilling tasks, every word that Kenrick spoke to us earlier just replayed in my mind. Yeah, somehow this task seemed to have fallen in my hands. Anyway, after completing and cleaning up the toilet in our campervan and spray here spray there using my deodorant spray, we were off to Wai-O-Tapu to catch Lady Knox. Either it is psychological or it was a spill ... I just kept smelling the strong urine odor the whole day after that!

As usual, it was a scenic drive all the way to the thermal wonderland as is wherever we drove along the countryside in North Island. Green and beautiful and did I mentioned ... we hardly drove with air-conditioning on. We actually let the fresh cool breeze in. We arrived early at Wai-O-Tapu before 10am and purchased our tickets at NZ$32.50 per person. We managed to get a 10% discount using the discount voucher from All Seasons Holiday Park. When you think about the currency exchange, every little NZ$ saved is helpful.

Catch our day at the thermal wonderland below.


Law Of Attraction: Give Freely To Receive Generously

Mentioned about the law of attraction and every thought will be channeled towards abundance no doubt but many translate abundance into the monetary sense. Undeniably true because just like them, seeking wealth had been the beginning of my story with the law of attraction.

It has been more than 3 years since my first brush with ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne and I have been practising positive thinking since, reading and doing everything that I am supposed to do. But yet, why have I not won the Toto jackpot? I buy the numbers diligently and I truly believe that my day will come but the day still hasn’t come. Perhaps, it has not been receiving my intense focus and emotions. There had been times I came close when I paid a little more attention but often times, I gave very little importance to it. Am I robbing myself of a life changing phenomenon?

I’d like to think not because as we delve and learn more about the law of attraction, we will realised that abundance is not prioritized by the dollars and cents. It is more about building a belief system in ourselves to create an abundance in us that can never be quantify by dollars and cents. We turned our focus to nurturing our mind and emotions to be completely satisfied and celebrate the prosperity that already exist in our life. Growing this belief system, we unlock the fullness of our gratitude to bring us into harmony with the Universe.

When we become aligned with the Universe, we are not only in harmony with ourselves but with others around us. Being in harmony with the Universe, we release all our resistance to abundance. Abundance being a natural state of affairs in the Universe, it will orchestrate everything in perfect order to deliver more abundance to us. The Universe delivers what is best for us as it deemed fit.

As it turned out, monetary abundance has taken a back seat for quite awhile now as compared to when I first started my journey with the law of attraction. Self-discovery led to changed priorities and I trust today I exude passion, purpose and prosperity. My belief system has grown and I feel gratitude for the abundances that I’ve received through everyone, everything and every experience that touched my life. As I enjoy my abundance now and the Universe has directed me onto my next level to receive monetary freedom. To achieve monetary freedom is all about sharing my abundance and what better way than through acts of kindness such as gifting opportunity.

Studying the law attraction, it teaches us that performing acts of kindness can quickly change our life. All happy, successful and prosperous people gave freely before they received generously.

My Bubble: Stop-overs Enroute Rotorua

After spending half the day in Matamata, we drove on to the thermal city of Rotorua. It is the place that delivers the extremes of experiences from the Maori culture, extreme adventures, trekking, fishing and geothermal earth forces such as geysers, hot springs and boiling mud pools.

McLaren Falls Park
After the mad rush to the Hobbits hole, our pace calmed and we took on a relaxed drive mode as we head towards Rotorua. We set our GPS and didn't realised that we were headed on a longer route when we decided to include a 45mins drive to visit Tauranga [it was actually planned earlier but canceled]. However, we were too busy marveling the scenic sights along the way to really notice as we passed through the Kaimai-Mamaku Forest Park. Soon after Matamata, we stopover to check out the McLaren Falls Park, about 10mins before arriving at Tauranga. It is a pastoral and horticultural parkland alongside Lake McLaren popular for camping, fishing, kayaking, bush walks and picnics. Since lo kong was still not confident with his driving the campervan, we did not get to see the waterfall as we set out on foot up Cherry Bay. However, we were very much intrigued by a black swan family.

After snapping some shots, we got on our way to arrive in Tauranga past 3pm. A quick tour about town and we were on the road again, passing the town of Te Puke, the Kiwifruit capital of the world. Too bad we didn't have time to stay a night here as Rotorua was beckoning with a excitement. We also droved pass Okere Falls, a small town popular for whitewater river sledging. This place actually appeared once in The Amazing as part of their detour challenge. Too bad again but we weren't ready to get wet anyway ... it's cold!

Soon after, we were stopped by a policeman as did all the vehicles before us. As there was a accident somewhere ahead, he advised us to take a detour route which we unfortunately missed the turning and went right smack into the road block. We were like less than 10 minutes from the Lake Okareka campsite, one of their Department of Conservation New Zealand's campsites that offers safe campground on a budget. While being stucked in the half-hour roadblock, we realised that the campsite does not have a dumping station which were very desperate for as it was already starting to stink inside our campervan. We had not done any dumping at since we first took delivery of the campervan. That's 2 days of pee ... ewwwwww!!!

Finally we checked into the All Seasons Holiday Park in Rotorua but by then was a bit too dark to do any dumping. So we slept on with the stink lingering  round our noses.


Poetry: If I Had my Child To Raise Over Again

Poetry by Diane Loomans

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars,
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often,
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd model less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.

Just Laughs: The Pirate

A pirate walked into a bar and the bartender said, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!"

"What do you mean? I'm fine."

"What about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."

"Well," said the pirate, "we were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the doc fixed me up, and I'm fine, really."

"Oh yeah? Well what about that hook? The last time I saw you, you had both hands."

"We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the doc fixed me up with the hook, and I feel great, really."

"Oh," said the bartender, "what about that eye patch? The last time you were in here you had both eyes."

"One day when we were at sea some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up and one of them crapped in my eye."

"You're kidding," said the bartender, "you couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird crap!"

"Well, I really wasn't used to the hook yet."

My Bubble: A Mad Rush To See The Hobbits ...

Late ... late ... we were behind schedule!

Eventhough we had been telling each other that our vacation must be totally free and easy without being fixated on where and what to do, we were still late if we want to make it to the The Hobbiton Village in Matamata by the next morning.

Kenrick had been very meticulous and thorough when he delivered his campervan to us at The Spencer on Byron. We had not anticipated that the handover and briefing would take almost 2 hours but it was all for a good cause to the best of our benefits. We are certainly thankful because his advices came in handy during our drive around North Island.

Kenrick had also been very accommodating to drive us on a quick tour around Takapuna and then onto One Tree Hill where lo kong took over the driving. Under Kenrick’s watchful eye, lo kong fumbled initially trying to familiarize with driving a manual and huge vehicle. Kenrick must’ve been quite relieved after we dropped him off safely at his home in Papakura.

We had spotted a KFC earlier and decided to grab a quick lunch there before heading to one of the popular hypermarkets, Countdown to grab some groceries for the campervan which included six-pack of lo kong's favorite Hoegaarden and a bottle of wine.  By the time we started our journey on the South Motorway heading south to the city of Hamilton, it was already past 3pm. I knew we will not be able to make it to the Hamilton Garden as I had intended. We arrived in Hamilton past 5pm and with a one-and-a-half hour drive behind him plus all the extra efforts put into reacquainting with manual driving, lo kong was already dead tired. But I had not planned to overnight there, so lo kong drive on to our next attraction in Matamata where we were supposed to put up a night. Talk about a slave driver huh?

After Hamilton, we arrived in the town of Cambridge. It was already dark as night eventhough it was only about 7.30pm. Lo kong finally decided to take a well-deserved rest at a McDonald’s parking lot where we rested for about 2 hours. We felt uneasy though as we weren’t sure if we were allowed to simply park our campervan there. While lo kong rested, I kept popping my head out the window in case we were being cited for illegal camping. The temperature was way too cold for lo kong and it made me even more uncomfortable when he decided to start the stove to make some hot drinks right there in the parking lot.

However, if we wanted to make it for The Hobbiton Movie Set tour first thing in the morning, we knew we will have to drive on. We set the GPS for the movie set and thought we’d just arrive earlier than expected. The road getting there was dark that you practically don’t see anything on the left or right. It was also narrow and winding. At one point, after taking a wrong turn-off and we had a harrowing time trying to make a 3-point turn on the narrow stretch without causing any damages. Surprised and worried, we arrived at the GPS destination to find nothing there … complete darkness that we don’t see anything beyond our vehicle’s lights. Without hesitation, we quickly drive on to town. What a relief when we started seeing streetlights along the way though the road were deserted … it was already closed to midnight.

Finally we reached the town of Matamata but it was too late to check-in to any camper site. Again we parked right on an open and totally deserted parking lot next to a McDonald’s outlet and call it a night there. Thank God for our ensuite bath and toilet which we subsequently discovered the detriments of not dumping quickly enough ... the stinky way!

Random Bubbles ...

An old classmate of mine, Mor Kiang had send me this beautiful clip written by Suzie Eller who is an inspirational speaker, author, and freelance writer. It is endearing to find that I had once upon a time been pushed into familiar predicament at work too. However, what's important to note here is not the hurt and anger but the love and friendship that sprung from it.

Read on my friends and I hope it will touch you the same way it had on me;

Jack tossed the papers on my desk -- his eyebrows knit into a straight line as he glared at me.

"What's wrong?" I asked. He jabbed a finger at the proposal.

"Next time you want to change anything, ask me first," he said, turning on his heels and leaving me stewing in anger.

How dare he treat me like that I thought. I had changed one long sentence, and corrected grammar -- something I thought I was paid to do. It's not that I hadn't been warned. The other women, who had served in my place before me, called him names I couldn't repeat. One co-worker took me aside the first day.

"He's personally responsible for two different secretaries leaving the firm," she whispered.

As the weeks went by, I grew to despise Jack. It was against everything I believed in -- turn the other cheek and love your enemies. But Jack quickly slapped a verbal insult on any cheek turned his way. I prayed about it, but to be honest, I wanted to put him in his place, not love him.

One day, another of his episodes left me in tears. I stormed into his office, prepared to lose my job if needed, but not before I let the man know how I felt. I opened the door and Jack glanced up.

"What?" he said abruptly. Suddenly I knew what I had to do. After all, he deserved it. I sat across from him.

"Jack, the way you've been treating me is wrong. I've never had anyone speak to me that way. As a professional, it's wrong, and it's wrong for me to allow it to continue," I said.

Jack snickered nervously and leaned back in his chair. I closed my eyes briefly. God help me, I prayed.

"I want to make you a promise. I will be a friend," I said. "I will treat you as you deserve to be treated, with respect and kindness. You deserve that," I said. "Everybody does."

I slipped out of the chair and closed the door behind me. Jack avoided me the rest of the week. Proposals, specs, and letters appeared on my desk while I was at lunch, and the corrected versions were not seen again. I brought cookies to the office one day and left a batch on Jack's desk.

Another day I left a note. "Hope your day is going great," it read.

Over the next few weeks, Jack reappeared. He was reserved, but there were no other episodes. Co-workers cornered me in the break room.

"Guess you got to Jack," they said. "You must have told him off good." I shook my head.

"Jack and I are becoming friends," I said in faith. I refused to talk about him. Every time I saw Jack in the hall, I smiled at him. After all, that's what friends do.

One year after our "talk," I discovered I had breast cancer. I was 32, the mother of three beautiful young children, and scared. The cancer had metastasized to my lymph nodes and the statistics were not great for long-term survival.

After surgery, I visited with friends and loved ones who tried to find the right words to say. No one knew what to say. Many said the wrong things. Others wept, and I tried to encourage them. I clung to hope.

The last day of my hospital stay, the door darkened and Jack stood awkwardly on the threshold. I waved him in with a smile and he walked over to my bed and, without a word, placed a bundle beside me. Inside lay several bulbs.

"Tulips," he said. I smiled, not understanding. He cleared his throat.

"If you plant them when you get home, they'll come up next spring." He shuffled his feet. "I just wanted you to know that I think you'll be there to see them when they come up."

Tears clouded my eyes and I reached out my hand. "Thank you," I whispered.

Jack grasped my hand and gruffly replied, "You're welcome. You can't see it now, but next spring you'll see the colors I picked out for you." He turned and left without another word.

I have seen those red and white striped tulips push through the soil every spring for over ten years now. In fact, this September the doctor will declare me cured.

I've seen my children graduate from high school and enter college. In a moment when I prayed for just the right word, a man with very few words said all the right things.

After all, that's what friends do.

** Dear friends, I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I had.

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Life is indeed Good!!!

I am so grateful how good life is treating me today. I am so grateful that lo kong and I had been kept safe during our wonderful trip to Kiwiland.  I am so grateful how well the weather has been treating me since my return.  I am so grateful that my son, Nick had kept the fort safe and sound while we had been away.  I am even more thankful that the Lord had kept a watchful eye over him too!

Not forgetting, I am also grateful that lo kong managed to find his wedding band that had slipped off his fingers at one of the camper sites during our vacation.  Almost a week into our vacation, it seemed that lo kong's fingers had shrunk due to the cold.  He had shown me the night before how the ring could so easily slip in and out of his finger but it never crossed both our minds to totally remove it for safekeeping.

That morning we had already checked out of the Westshore Holiday Park in Napier and was just about to drive off from the nearby Hawke's Bay Seafoods where we just had a sumptuous breakfast of their signature fish and chips.  We checked our campervan as well as the eatery.  Still unable to find it, we decided to return to the camper site which was just about 5 minutes away.  While I searched the grounds retracing our steps, lo kong checked the toilet.  Thank God!  He found it on the floor of the toilet right as he stepped in.  He was elated and I was just so relieved that no one had stumbled on it.  Else it would have been gone forever!

Assuming it could not be found, it would have been a costly loss since the current 916 gold price is going at about RM205/gram.  However, due to its priceless sentimental value ... it would have been a even bigger loss!

My Bubble: No Tipsy Run For Lo Kong In Wine Country

Having completed the North Shore Marathon, we began our campervan exploration the very next day with a plentiful intention to round the whole North Island. Whatever was the plan, we must however ensure to touch base within 4 days at Havelock North, a suburb in Hastings in the North Island's Hawke's Bay region, located some 20km inland from the neighboring port city of Napier.

Havelock North is generally hilly, being at the foothills of Te Mata Peak and it is one of New Zealand's most important wine regions. The town's industry is based around its fruits and wine production. In fact, this is where I had my very first encounter with a real grapefruit tree, found abundant at the Arataki Motels & Holiday Park where we camped for a night. In fact, the owner invited me to take as much as I wanted as he said no one was interested in eating them. Unfortunately, I couldn't pluck the whole tree ... the extra baggage at NZ$25/kg charged by Jetstar would have been too costly!

Lo kong had signed up for a half-marathon in the Hawke's Bay Run Walk Marathon, held at Guthrie Park and we collected the race kit the same evening we arrived. Good for me and unfortunately not so good for lo kong, the weather was much colder than during his earlier marathon in Takapuna. I even noticed frost on the grass at our camper site in the morning. Grrrrrr!!!

In New Zealand, they encouraged both running and walking marathon. The full walking marathon was flagged off at 7.30am followed by the full running marathon at 8.30am. Lo kong's half marathon run and the half-marathon walk were flagged off only at 10.00am. The running route had even passed by our camper site and we got to see the full marathoners running pass our front door, so to say.

Lo kong finished his run in 1hr 45mins but unfortunately the distance covered were only about 19km. The organisers subsequently apologized on their website for their road marshals' mistake of directing the runners away from the correct running route. Anyway, nothing was lost since there wasn't any finisher medals in the first place, just like in the North Shore Marathon.

An apology from the organizers over at their website

Overall, lo kong said he had a very relaxed run although several local runners did give him some challenges as they tried to outrun one another. Although it was wine country, there was no opportunity for a tipsy run here.

After the run, we returned to the camper site to freshen-up and did the necessary dumping before heading towards Hastings for our lunch at Breakers Cafe. Then it was on the road again to our next destination, driving through a 46km serpentine road that threads through valleys and headwalls of the mighty Ruahine Range. By then, we had decided to forego visiting further south to Palmerston North - the Knowledge City where education and research pulsates. Due to the time constraint, Wellington furthest to the south and New Plysmouth on the west coast were also out the chart!


A Note Of Awareness #11

The law of attraction is about accentuating the positive … you've got to eliminate the negative and latch onto the affirmative. Don't mess with Mister In-Between!

Our thoughts can lift us to joyful heights or cause us to sink in the depths of despair. When we are thinking positively, we bring or attract positive situations and people. But when we are focused on the negative aspects of our life, we attract more negativity. Our thoughts are often charged with positive or negative emotions and are rarely at neutral.

If you want more goodness in your life, be good and be grateful. Feel joy, peace and happiness. Spread it out into the universe as your gift to others. Keep your mind clean from clutter, worry and fear. Don’t give mental energy to negative thinking. Just let it go. Focus on the positive to draw more of that into your life!

Happy Malaysia Day!!!

My Bubble: Missed The Rugby World Cup 2011 Opening Ceremony!

We knew that our planned holiday to New Zealand would coincide with the Rugby World Cup 2011 but we never really paid much attention to it considering lo kong was more into football. In fact, we thought it was timely that we are flying out just a day before the opening ceremony to be held in Auckland City. We could avoid the anticipated crowd we thought!

From the moment we arrived into the city and subsequently everywhere else, we were asked if we were in town for the RWC. Further, we could see the promotions in progress to build up the momentum towards the start of the game. How are we not to catch that rugby fever while we were there?!!

Regrets ... regrets ... regrets!!!

By the last leg of our drive when we returned to the city, we wished we could extend our stay over to the weekend. Just enough to see the RWC opening ceremony live. Instead we were watching the fantastic fireworks live on Astro Supersport back in Malaysia while in a jet-lagged mode!


Law Of Attraction: Use the LOA to Clean Up Your “Friend’s List”

If you think the Law of Attraction is only about material things, then you may miss the best part. The greatest treasures of your life can be in the people that surround you far more than in the things that you possess.

Even if you have a large address book and can summon fifty people to a party in an hour, that doesn’t mean that you have the right people in your life. It just means that you have many people in your world.

Yet it’s possible to be lonely in a crowd.

Once you are practicing the Law of Attraction, you start to see your world differently. You also learn how to see yourself in a new light. As you become in tune with the world instead of battling against it, you discover the immense power of positive energy.

That’s where you start to hear what you never heard before in your circle of friends. Your home takes on the positive energy you invite into it so that you attract what nurtures your goals and desires.

Suddenly the sarcasm you used to laugh at begins to feel uncomfortable. You thought that friend was funny and edgy, but now you feel a conflict as his negative energy clashes with your positive energy.

Another friend calls regularly to dump her problems on you. You’ve patiently listened and offer advice but she makes the same bad judgments over and over. You even tried to introduce her to the Law of Attraction, but she has a dozen excuses as to why it won’t work for her.

Finally you see that she doesn’t want to change. You can feel badly for her, but you need to cancel your reservation at her pity parties. Her negative energy is draining your positive energy and neither of you benefits.

Those are just a few realizations you begin to have about people in your friend circle. Some will notice the difference in you and want to know how to find the peace, prosperity and maturity that you found in the Law of Attraction.

Others will feel like you left them behind and want you to go back to your old self (if you’ve ever dieted before, it’s like those friends who take you out to throw temptations at you to see if you’ll indulge in junk food so they can feel okay with how they’re eating).

Eventually you have to make a choice - turn your back on what you know is the truth or mix with the old, negative crowd. That’s when you have to prune your friends list. As harsh as this sounds, it really isn’t.

In nature, trees are pruned at key points in order to make the tree blossom and grow stronger branches. Without pruning, the branches grow wild, are poorly supported and threaten the health of the entire tree.

The same is true in your life. As you transform yourself to maximum positive energy, you just can’t go back to the old negative ways. You have to prune your connections to pessimistic, angry and parasitic people from your inner circle of friends.

You can be gracious to them in public without bringing their negative energy into your home or spending time with them. Instead, draw into your inner circle those people whose goals and desires are similar to yours.

If none of your current group of friends fits that definition, then you turn again to the Law of Attraction to bring the right people into your circle while drawing you into circles of those who practice what you believe.

My Bubble: Lo Kong Did A New PB In North Shore!

It was not originally in the plan to run a marathon, much less 2 separate runs when we first booked our vacation to New Zealand.

However, lo kong being such a running fanatic could not refrain himself from checking out the available marathons over at Kiwiland during the period of our travel. Lucky for him, they had the inaugral Jerry Clayton North Shore Marathon held in Takapuna, just a 10 minutes drive from Auckland City.

The weather was still very cold as it was the end of the winter and also due to the recent polar blast that created a little more unpredictable weather fluctuations. Anyhow, lo kong braved the cold with 2-layers of running vest to come in with a new personal best at 4 hours 22 mins.

As for me, I just soaked in the beautiful weather (cold weather is my favorite) and enjoyed the sights while waiting for lo kong who wasn't far away as he had to loop near the finish line 4 times to complete the 42km.

Congratulations to my lo kong ... not only for finishing the marathon but also single-handedly completing our driving marathon around the North Island.


My Bubble: Our Abode On Wheels ...

We've never drove a van before much less driving a campervan with all the household equipments and utensils on its four wheels. Not to mention a water and sewage tank. I would call it our abode on wheels since it came complete with a queen-sized bed, wardrobe, bathroom, kitchen, dining and even picnic chairs with umbrella.

It was really an intimidating vehicle when we first took delivery. The owner, Kenrick was very thorough with all the do's and don'ts that he was afraid we would have an information overload. Taking over the driving, it was the beginning of a big-time stress for lo kong. First he had to re-acquaint himself with manual driving, then driving a bigger vehicle than he normally does, remembering some of the country's different and sometimes odd road rules and of course, finally driving the narrow winding roads without causing any dents or accidents as we went about the North Island in New Zealand. I guess his driving was far from normal since we were even stopped by a policewoman in Turangi. She claimed lo kong was driving erratically and suspected that he was drunk. However, he was let-off after a breathelyser test.

As much as I wanted to be a relief driver, I decided against driving the campervan totally ... better not to take any risk! No doubt we were fully covered by insurance it was still our sense of responsibility. It doesn't help the stress when we saw 2 major accidents throughout our drive.

A campervan is definitely a whole new experience that we won't be able to enjoy back home but frankly we realised that we may have outdone ourselves abit. Due to time constraint, we had very little intention to stay longer than a night anywhere which kept the campervan minimally utilised. We were on the move all the time and as such, we did very little cooking and hardly showered. We braved the cold mornings or freezing evenings to use the communal shower and cooking facilities that were complimentary at every camper site we checked into. The camper sites charged between NZ$28 to NZ$50 for 2 persons depending on location. Laundry was self-service at NZ$4 per load and another NZ$4 for drying the load ... it's definitely expensive if you start thinking of the exchange. Some of the camper sites were well kept while one or two were quite rundown.

Next time when we visit New Zealand again, we intend to rent a car or a 4WD that runs on diesel. Petrol is expensive! It will be faster to check in and out of any motels, hotels or inns that were aplenty without having to think about parking, dump-station, water and electricity. It is just pack and go!


My Poem: Beauty of My World

This is a haiku in appreciation of the beauty in this world as I see it. It is inspired by my travels that has broaden my mind. As St. Augustine said, "The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."

My Bubble: Our Humble Abodes Away From Home

Being 2 weeks away from home while exploring the sights in Aotearoa, we didn’t really need to put up the nights in too many different lodgings. Renting a campervan has certainly helped not only to keep us rooted to a private abode but also helped to do away with the undesired packing and unpacking when moving from place to place.

Upon our arrival, we had checked in for a night at the All Seasons Auckland Hotel in order to enjoy the convenience of exploring the city. It is located right in the heart of the city and just round the corner to the Sky Tower. I had booked it online a few months earlier and the room was offered at NZ$67 a night. I was uneasy with my choice initially after reading so many unpleasant reviews about it on Trip Advisor. However upon checking in, lo kong and I were more than pleased with our room on the 14th floor (we’ve stayed in a much smaller and rundown room in comparison) although we can’t say the same for the customer service and facilities offered.

Our humble abode at All Seasons Auckland Hotel ...
not recommended!!!

The reception and housekeeping crew were made up of foreign labor of Indian origin except at the cafe that unfortunately did not looked appetizing all. Confirming one of the reviews I’d read, the hotel did actually operated with only one functioning lift. The other lift still remained out-of-order after so many months. Because of that, we had to wait for almost 15 minutes before we could catch the lift to our room.

After refreshing ourselves, we quickly went out to explore the city. We only return very late in the evening and were right smacked into a swelling group of guests waiting for the lift. After almost 30 minutes, we had to patiently wait for the hotel’s appointed renovator to unload his tools and debris from the lift while bearing a smirk on his face. Gosh … the lift had a dual purpose as a service lift as well!

Some ignorant guests who were too eager to get to their rooms quickly overloaded the lift causing it to jam. This causes everyone to be stranded until the technician could arrive at the earliest in half-an-hour’s time. Some guests made their dissatisfaction and threats heard while the rest of us decided to use the lift.

Thank goodness lo kong and I were fit enough to climb the stairs to our room on the 14th floor! I am sure I will never recommend this hotel to anyone … ever! When we passed this hotel almost 2 weeks later, we noticed that the hotel was undergoing more extensive renovations. Regretfully, I don’t think the hotel needs the facelift anymore than they need a total overhaul of its customer service and its rundown equipments!

In NZ, all hotels observed a check-in time at 2pm and check-out at 11am. We were fortunate to be able to check in earlier to our next humble abode at The Spencer on the Byron in nearby Takapuna. It was a 4-star 19-storey hotel that had a stunning view of Auckland city and other famous landmarks such as the Rangitoto Island and the Hauraki Gulf right from our balcony. It was about a 10-minutes drive from the city where lo kong were to participate in the inaugural Jerry Clayton North Shore Full Marathon. The starting line was just a short walk away. I believe I had really gotten a great deal at NZ$118 a night considering the prevailing rate for our one-bedroom suite when we checked in was going for NZ$250 a night. It had a fully equipped kitchen and lo kong even did some light cooking for snacks. I did our first batch of laundry right in our room as it also came with a washing machine and dryer … all with no extra charges.

The best roof over our head throughout our vacation ...
highly recommended!!!

Rightfully there shouldn’t be any grouses about their standard and quality. However, due to their overzealous housekeeping staff, lo kong was almost caught in a state of undress twice! Despite my acknowledgement to their knocking, they had been too impatient for us to let them in that they used their own master-key open the door. Now … that’s not quite right don’t you think? Further why didn’t they refill the fridge before we checked-in anyway?

Anyhow, despite the little mishaps, I wouldn’t mind staying there again if the opportunity ever permits and I have no qualms recommending it to anyone either. In fact, the rugby team from France is staying there at the moment for the Rugby World Cup 2011. Today’s prevailing rate is more than NZ$300 a night since it is a peak season again … it is spring time now.

After 2 nights’ stay at The Spencer, we took delivery of our campervan for the next 10 days of our stay in NZ. That's whole new experience where pampering is out the window!

Anyway, the next round of hotel comfort was during our last night in Kiwiland. Upon returning our campervan, we checked into Best Western BK's Pioneer Motor Lodge which was only a 3 minutes drive to the airport. It came with a private jacuzzi and our stay was worth every cent of the NZ$112 we paid even though it was only for a night. It's current rate is going for NS$145. No doubt they provide free shuttle service for their guests to and from the airport, we were still surprised that they had purposely drove out to the airport just to fetch us when we got stranded there after returning from the city. A 3-minute taxi ride from the airport to the hotel would have cost us NZ$30!

A great end to our stay in NZ ...
worth every cent of it!!!

Stay tuned till I continue more on our experience in a campervan around the North Island!

Random Bubbles ...


Gracious God, Heavenly Father,
I thank Thee with my whole heart,
That Thou hast in safety brought us to our journey’s end,
And that to my joy, Thy holy angels have led us back to my family.

Father, Thou hast also kept us from all evil,
Prevented untoward incidences and harm from us.
Thou hast led us in safety as the Angel Raphael led the young Tobias.
All this I owe to Thy paternal care and almighty protection.

In mercy keep me and mine,
Take us under Thy mighty protection,
And by Thy power preserve body and soul unto eternal life for Jesus Christ’s sake.

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

I am so grateful for the great experience and the safe journey in a foreign land.

"I think I had a good holiday" ... got this badge from one of the i-Site centres (a tourist information centre) located in every town that we dropped in throughout our drive in North Island, New Zealand.  Interestingly, it describes our holiday to the dot.

It was certainly an awesome holiday albeit an expensive one. Driving, sleeping and cooking in a campervan ... checking into mandatory camper sites where hotel pamperings are out the window. We had to refill clean water as well as dumped our dirty water and pottie ourselves at these dedicated dump-stations. It's definitely cumbersome which needs a whole lot of getting use to but it's a whole new experience ... exciting and stressful all at the same time!

2 weeks ... 14 days spent in North Island only and it's barely sufficient to cover the whole island, let alone to include the South Island as well. We had to skipped a number places of interest in order to remain on schedule. We drove from Auckland to Hamilton, Matamata, Rotorua, Taupo, Napier, Hastings, Taihape, Turangi, Te Kuiti, Waitomo Caves and then back to Hamilton on to Auckland. If all plans go well accordingly, so it seems we might be back again in a couple of years to cover where we left off and the other island.

I dreaded to say "hei kona ra" but i'm also looking forward to say "haere mai" again to the hospitable Kiwis!

A Note Of Awareness #10

The law of attraction is about bringing your thought energies into balance and alignment with your desired experiences.

Experiencing negative thoughts from time to time is normal. But getting too engrossed or carried away with them can result in a build-up of negative emotions. Combining negative thoughts and emotions, you will generate negative energies that become a magnet, attracting all the dreaded things into your life. Strengthen your thought energies to face off against the energy drainers.
Remember, you have the power to attract and repel . So stop dwelling on everything that could go wrong or get worse!

Just Laughs: What Is 2 + 2?

An engineer, a physicist, and a lawyer were being interviewed for a position as chief executive officer of a large corporation. The engineer was interviewed first, and was asked a long list of questions, ending with "How much is two plus two?" The engineer excused himself, and made a series of measurements and calculations before returning to the board room and announcing, "Four."

The physicist was next interviewed, and was asked the same questions. Again, the last question was, "How much is two plus two?" Before answering the last question, he excused himself, made for the library, and did a great deal of research. After a consultation with the United States Bureau of Standards and many calculations, he also announced, "Four."

The lawyer was interviewed last, and again the final question was, "How much is two plus two?" The lawyer drew all the shades in the room, looked outside to see if anyone was there, checked the telephone for listening devices, and then whispered, "How much do you want it to be?"

My Poem: Travelling Souls

This poem is written in reflection of the joyful companionship Lo Kong and I shared as we stepped out on our travels together and here's to many more of the travels we will be adventuring together.

Law Of Attraction: Change Your Focus And Savor Life!

“I'm a middle-aged lady, freed from the storms of the past and illusions of the future, only to realize the power of NOW. Letting go and embracing change, I've gain strength, courage and confidence through every daily experiences, progressing towards LIVING and LOVING my LIFE more.”

This is my profile and I drafted this while vacationing in Bali. It speaks volumes from my heart because I am reaping the fruits of what I have sowed. I changed my focus. I embraced change. Today I am happily enjoying life!

If you are looking for more out of life, then use the law of attraction to attract what you truly expect out of life. In order to receive the rewarding things in life, it is all about your focus. 90% of it that is! It is truly about making smart choices and giving them your proper attention so that you can experience the fulfillment you are seeking. Just like me, you may be experiencing a time in your life where you are looking for life’s purpose, live to its challenges and enjoy its rewards. But how will the law of attraction put you onto the right focus?

The law of attraction is a very simple principle of ‘like attracts like’ and simply applying it to every aspect of your life will expedite what you want out of life into yours. As you grow and improve through this universal law, you will begin to realize the changes in you where you will;

• Learn to focus on your thoughts and desires to bring out the best in life and spend more time enjoying it.

• Train yourself to think positively and maintain positive habits to improve the quality of your life.

• Allow yourself to receive what you are looking for by thinking about them in a focused and deliberate way.

• Strengthen your own creative energies in order to manipulate the terms of your existence.

• Create greater abundance in life for yourself and your family.

The law of attraction puts everyone on the same level. It builds on the fact that everyone is equal with the same power to create their own reality that suits them the best. Yes, you have the equal power to create your own reality. It may be consciously or probably unconsciously as you may have willingly passed it on to others to create it for you. Everyone is plugged into their daily doses of self-programming to create their reality each day and through the Universe’ orchestration, this leads everyone to be intertwined randomly. The coincidences you see are just the reflected manifestations from everyone brought together by the forces of the Universe.
With the law of attraction, I am where I want to be or perhaps where I am supposed to be through my own conscious efforts and discipline. I created my undesired reality in the past and so have I created my joyful moments today that I am savoring every minute of it!

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Kia Ora! Greetings from Aotearoa!

I had actually wanted to schedule this entry way before we left KLIA because we were definitely coming to this part of the country. However, due to the polar blast there was a huge uncertainty that we will ever make it here. There was in fact an emergency warning issued to the locals prior weeks' ago to prepare for self-evacuation due to the rising seas at their beachfronts.

I am grateful that the big seas along with snow and freezing temperatures had eased though it is still cold due to the lingering cold winds, intermittent showers and frosts. Lo Kong and I are now in Hawke's Bay, the wine country of New Zealand. Lo Kong will be running the half-marathon as scheduled this morning which is due to start at about 10am local time. I am grateful that we have had a very careful and safe driving experience to get here on their almost wintery road conditions.

I am so grateful for an enjoyable week so far in Aotearua and will update the full details of our holiday soon upon my return to Malaysia.

Hei konā rā for now!

A Note Of Awareness #9

The law of attraction is not so much as manifesting only for yourself but as your gifts to the Universe!

You can make a difference in the world you live by turning your thought energy or polarity outwards. From your outward expression of something you wish to do or accomplish, your manifestations can directly or indirectly benefit the people around you too. Your happy thought energizes your energy force that inadvertently affects others on the receiving end!
Bridge the world with your outward thought energies and be a human magnet to attract more of the same abundance!

Law Of Attraction: Don’t Let Misinformed Choices Dampen Your Vacation

Haven’t you realize that you have the power to choose? Yes, you have this power over your life in every situation. Many may not realize it which is why you often hear these words, “I have no choice!”

Rationally, everything that exists in your life comes from a choice, a choice you made some time in the past. Just as deciding to experience joy is no more different than deciding to suffer from fear. You will always have a choice. And the law of attraction continues from the choices you made.

From a joined decision months’ ago, I will be embarking on another vacation abroad with my husband in few days’ time. The excitement of going on another adventure to a different country brings bursts of anticipations plus some anxieties over unavoidable travel risks that may bust our budget during the vacation. Of course it would be unthinkable to throw caution out the window but maintaining reason over the choice of precautions to be observed will certainly allow us to experience a safe and economical vacation that will be treasured for life.

Everyone wants to have a fun-filled and memorable vacation despite the usual risks here and there. But when you let fear rear its ugly head in your mind, it will be difficult for you spot any inaccurate beliefs imposed on you along your journey. You can either decide to face your fears and challenge how you perceive danger and safety or choose to let fear deceive you into making the wrong turns in your every decision-making.

While travelling, you will definitely encounter all sorts of people. Some may amaze you, some excite you, inspire you, annoys you or even those who might freak you out. They merely play an instrumental role to develop your growth as a person. They come across with thought patterns that conflict yours simply because they hold their own beliefs as much as you have to your own. Friends or strangers you meet on your journey may think that they are saving you a lot of trouble when they advised you against certain mode of transport, dining places or food or accommodation or even activities and attractions. This information may be justifiable or unfounded based on their belief that has been wrapped around their own fears. It can go either way. It would be wise to process their perceptions rather than taking it wholly to prevent you from any inaccurate beliefs.

Belief is a choice too and what you believe becomes your perception too. Anyone can perceive danger or safety. Their perceptions are not always the real truths and set in stones. So before you accept someone else’s perception as your own truth, it needs a process of authentication. Real truths will naturally come out when they have been put to the test.

Do not give away your power to choose to others. Do not succumb to your own fears and let others make the choices for you before you even get started. You need to explore the nearest boundaries of your own perception to have an understanding of the real situations, the real risks and the reason behind the biasness in order to make smart choices during your journey. Do not turn a blind eye because observation is important to the authentication process that shapes your belief.
The law of attraction is all about making the smart choices to attracting what you belief most into your existence. What you believe draws your intense focus and however you chose to focus during your travel is what will be reflected into your journey. Use your power to choose joy over fear, fun over drudgery and safety over anxieties during your travels. Remember, whatever you experience is your responsibility.
