MY DAD- tribute

hi everybody
today i feel like writing about someone special in my life
my dad.

this is my dad. (picture on the right)

born in the year of horse in chinese lunar year
everyone called him "UNCLE FOONG"

since small, he always cook for me before and after school hours.
and will always sent me to school with his motorcycle (only when me this lazybum slept over and missed my school bus at times)
during primary school, i remember i always left my exercise books at home
he will always ride bike home and bring it for me whenever i called him through public phone for SOS

he cook the best food on earth
for everyone for every occasion throughout my life

 since small, he always bring my family go travel oversea which he believe travels broaden a person's mind.
i always thank God i found such father like him, without him. i wont be able to have the chance to see the world even when i was a little kid.

even now, we still practise the way of travel as a family, either oversea or inter states within Malaysia.

and the most amazing part about my father is
he is extremely good in telling JOKES!!!
sometimes my friend will refer me to king of jokes
i can humbly admit its all from my dad's!

he is always the one who cheer my up when im down.
my fellow friends loves to come to my house sometimes just to talk to my dad and hear his funny jokes.
he is too good in jokes With his funny EXPRESSION.

i always proud to introduce the world my jovier dad
he can tell jokes in a spark of seconds
im glad everyone just loves him.

When i was born,
You were there to catch me when i fall, whenever and wherever.
When i said my first words,
You were there for me,
to teach me the whole dictionary if need be.
When i took my first steps,
You were there to encourage me on.
When i had my first day at school,
you were there to give me advice and help me with my homework.
I still havent walked down the aisle, or had my first child.
But i know you will be there for me through all these times and more, the good and bad.
So i just wrote this to say 'I LOVE YOU DAD!!!'

In near future, we are not the captain, but dad, you are the true captain, who brought your only two sons into successful master mariners of the sea.

I Heard a Bird Sing

I heard a bird sing in the dark of December,
A magical thing, and so sweet to remember.

The wind started blowing so bitterly cold.
But still the bird sang so loud and so bold.

Snow heavily falling, turning all around white.
The day was retreating, bringing on the long night.

I stood there in wonder as the bird sang his song.
Such heart warming chirping did not seem to belong.

For this was December that cold time of the year.
When all the earth slumbered; with all the trees bare.

The bird sensed my presence then he turned to see.
A man standing in the snow, enjoying his melody.

The bird spread his wings and flew off into the sky.
My eyes could not follow, I thought I would cry.

So there I stood lonely, on this frigid Christmas eve.
Remembering that bird, and his brief winter reprieve.

As I walked away wishing, I was lost in my thought.
Of that brave little bird, and the song that he brought.

So now this December will not seem as cold.
As I think of that bird, and his sweet song so bold.

This poem was inspired by an earlier poem written

by Robert Lee Frost entitled “The Wood-Pile”.

My Mother.

"M" is for the Million things she gave me,
"O" means Only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the Tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her Heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her Eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means Right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

many years ago, one day before 19th april

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it's life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"You will simply call her, 'Mom.'"

love you mom, like i always do.
james boy.

Power of Money,

( Singapore 's youngest millionaire at 26 yrs.)WHO?

"Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia , Indonesia , Thailand and Suzhou ( China ). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.
Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked. He asked, 'How come a millionaire like you is travelling economy?'  My reply was, 'That's why I am a millionaire. ' He still looked pretty confused.
This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth (which I wrote about in my latest book 'Secrets of Self Made Millionaires'). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so  many people never become rich because the moment that earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one.
The truth is that most self made millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their wealth so much faster.
Over the last 7 years, I have saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about 60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2 kids, etc. to support).  Still, it is way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky).
I refuse to buy a first class ticket or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money. However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2 year old daughter to Julia Gabriel Speech and D ram a without thinking twice.
When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur's Orgn)a few years back (YEO) is an exclusive club open to those who are under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business) I discovered that those who were self made thought like me.  Many of them with net worth well over $5m,travelled economy class and some even drove Toyota 's and Nissans,not Audis, Mercs, BMWs..

I noticed that it was only those who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few ministers' and tycoons' sons in the club) who spent like there was no tomorrow. Somehow, when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family's wealth (no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third generation.
Thank God my rich dad foresaw this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business.

Then some people ask me, 'What is the point in making so much money if you don't enjoy it?' The thing is that I don't really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or sitting first class.  Even if buying something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last.
Material happiness never lasts, it just give you a quick fix. After a while you feel lousy again and have to buy the next thing which you think will make you happy. I always think that if you need material things to make you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life..
Instead, what makes me happy is when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes me happy is when I see my companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries. 

What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired some one's life.

What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this blog is inspiring you. This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what a Rolex would do for me.

I think the point I want to put across is that happiness must come from doing your life's work (be it teaching, building homes, designing,trading, winning tournaments etc.) and the money that comes is only a by-product. If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that you are living a life of meaninglessness.
