"Those who live in the past limit their future."
The Tuaran town is located in the West Coast Division of Sabah; the most famous landmark of this town would be the nine-storey Chinese pagoda. The town also serves as a good stopover town for travelers from the northern towns (Kudat, Kota Marudu, Kota Belud and Tenghilan) to the state capital of Kota Kinabalu. Every Sunday morning, there will be a tamu (big open market) held by the native traders. Readmore...
"If you really like someone, there's no such thing as not having enough time for them."
In any and all relationships that we have in which we care for another person and have some kind of commitment to this person, we have to be willing to sacrifice. Yes sometimes we must give things that we may not always want to give away, and included in this is our time. Time is very important because it is something that once gone will never be given back, but is necessary to give away to people we love in order to best strengthen the bond that we have with them.
Making the time out of our busy days to spend with those that we love is probably the best way to show someone that we care. Life is more about how present you are in somebody else's instead of how much material wealth that you are able or desire to give them. Instead of your relationships being about what you can spend on presents to your loved ones, make it about what you can spend in time with your loved ones, your presence.
Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation. According to their nature, each was having a good time. Suddenly, a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island.
The announcement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats were quickly repaired and commissioned for duty.
Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as the clouds darkened, Love realised it was time to leave. Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love looked around with hope.
Just then Prosperity passed by in a luxurious boat. Love shouted, “Prosperity, could you please take me in your boat?”
“No,” replied Prosperity, “my boat is full of precious possessions, gold and silver. There is no place for you.”
A little later Vanity came by in a beautiful boat. Again Love shouted, “Could you help me, Vanity? I am stranded and need a lift. Please take me with you.”
Vanity responded haughtily, “No, I cannot take you with me. My boat will get soiled with your muddy feet.”
Sorrow passed by after some time. Again, Love asked for help. But it was to no avail. “No, I cannot take you with me. I am so sad. I want to be by myself.”
When Happiness passed by a few minutes later, Love again called for help. But Happiness was so happy that it did not look around, hardly concerned about anyone.
Love was growing restless and dejected. Just then somebody called out, “Come Love, I will take you with me.” Love did not know who was being so magnanimous, but jumped on to the boat, greatly relieved that she would reach a safe place.
On getting off the boat, Love met Knowledge. Puzzled, Love inquired, “Knowledge, do you know who so generously gave me a lift just when no one else wished to help?”
Knowledge smiled, “Oh, that was Time.”
“And why would Time stop to pick me and take me to safety?” Love wondered.
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and replied, “Because only Time knows your true greatness and what you are capable of. Only Love can bring peace and great happiness in this world.”
The important message is that when we are prosperous, we overlook love. When we feel important, we forget love. Even in happiness and sorrow we forget love. Only with time do we realize the importance of love. Why wait that long? Why not make love a part of your life today?
"Stop trying to control everything and just let go."
Let go after that you have done all you can, let go of the failures and mistakes that you have made. Don't forget them, and instead make your present and future better by learning from them. Be humble and secure knowing that there are things in your life that you can't change, but there are places that you will go, and doors that will open for you if you continue to live life being as great a person as you possibly can.
Dear Santa, I'm older
But, still believe in you
(At least, I believe in
The things you try, to do).
Maybe, I can't ask for
A Tonka, or, a train.
(But, if you'd bring one of them
You know, I won't complain).
But, what I really wish for
Is a special present
Love that can't be "returned"
Once it has been sent.
Everybody needs a little
And some, need a lot
But, if you get a tiny bit
You still know what you got.
So Santa, drop a little
Under each Christmas tree
Then, all will get a present
From what it's 'posed to be.
And if there is no tree
For the alone, and poor
When you get, to their place
Just, drop, a little more.

"Right now someone you haven't met is out there wondering what it would be like to meet someone like you."
Doing things that allow for you to be in social situations that will help you to meet people is probably one of the most efficient tasks that you can do in order to most effectively you obtain a love interest. Never give up on love, though at times we may think that we will never find love, if we just keep a positive attitude and keep our eyes and hearts open, love will find us.
I'm counting the minutes to see you again.
"Things change, friends leave and life doesn't stop for anybody."
We must all remember that life isn't going to stop just because our plans may fall through, and just because we are heartbroken over someone leaving out of our lives. We must be able to pick up the pieces that our life shatters into sometimes, do our best to hold things together, and continue working hard towards the goals and dreams that we have set in our minds and hearts. Even though things change, and even though friends leave, we have to realize that life doesn't stop for anybody, and to never stop moving forward.
"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet."
We have to be able to take the challenges that life throws at us and turn them into steps in order to best conquer our futures. We have to be willing to not only get wet from going and working hard in our lives, but we must also learn how to enjoy the feelings of being challenged in our lives. Don't just get wet; enjoy the times in which you are challenged in life, so that you may better appreciate the times when life is peaceful.
I think of days before
You made me hope for something better
"Our life is one open book full of pages. We laugh, we cry, we smile, we stumble, we stand, we fall, and we succeed. Every chapter defines who we really are."
If we think long and hard about it, our life is very similar to a book. As each page progresses, so does time, and as each page progresses we live through different emotions, actions, and situations. As we pass through every day of our lives we go up and we go down, we smile, we laugh, we cry, we fail, we are victorious, we falter, we listen, we speak, we understand, and we seek wisdom.
What will your book of life say about you overall in the end? Will someone want to read your book? Will your life be interesting? Or will it be full of pages that don't really mean much at all. In order to present our best book/life to the world we must try to build our character as much as possible, and we must remember that we are here to do great things, we are here to change the generation by either changing the world abruptly, or by inspiring the soul that will change the world abruptly.
lessons to learn and good deeds to replicate.
Have A COLORFUL PAGE Everyday.
There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?” This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “It makes a difference to this one.”
What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If everyone made a small difference, we’d end up with a big difference, wouldn’t we?
I just thought about having more than 1 wish and all I came up with was ‘O wish i could change the world and make a difference’..then I had the ‘but how?’ moment… then it withered away... guess that's why we never get to change anything.We think then let wither.
"Forget the risk and take the fall, if its what you want, then it's worth it all."
Every opportunity that we take in life has some sort of risk involved, and most times the biggest opportunities are the biggest risks to take. It is better to risk starving to death, than to give up and surrender to living life as ordinary as possible in order to avoid taking risks. In order to be fulfilled and liberated a person must be willing to embarrass their self; be willing to dare to be great risk.
“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call... And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily
The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”
“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,
“Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
Never judge anyone because you never know how their life is & what they’re going through, think about this moment.
"Into each life some rain must fall."
If there was never any pain in life, we would never be able to appreciate the fruits of our hard labor, the fruits of our sacrifice, and emotions and feelings such as love, happiness, and joy. So take time to think about the fact that though you may be going through some difficulties at the moment, it is only so that you will be able to appreciate your life in the times that are great. It is in times of difficulty that we are made stronger, and that we are made the best people we can possibly become.
But too much is falling in mine
Into each heart some tears must fall
But some day the sun will shine
Some folks can lose the blues in their hearts
But when I think of you another shower starts
If you are a man and you are over 35 years old, if you are attracted to younger women, but you‘re afraid to be rejected or not taken seriously, you’ll find the real thing in this article on the subject.
"Someday, we'll forget the hurt, the reason we cried and who caused us pain. We will finally realize that the secret of being free is not revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way and own time. After all, what matters is not the first, but the last chapter of our life which shows how well we ran the race. So smile, laugh, forgive, believe and love all over again."
There is a time to grieve, just as there is a time to heal. Seeking revenge isn't a way to allow your heart to heal, seeking revenge only makes a hurting heart hurt more in the long run, and doesn't help a persons heart build, but instead, tears it down even more.
Instead a person must realize that in order to get better, he or she must make an effort to, and also that just because you may be experiencing these feelings of severity right now, if you can withstand them and learn from them, you will soon be able to reach heights that you never imagined that you could reach.
I know that life keeps moving on and on
I know I'll never love this way again
But in my heart I know I must be strong
And as long that I'm alive
I can make if I
Just remember life keeps moving on
Need a place for a vacation? Faraway from annoying technologies? I know one place that might be your interest. Let me introduce you to my guide. Before that enjoy the pictures.
It's me. Just me. I'm your guide for today. Hello readers. Care to visit to my place? A resort in Sabah with three Moai-like statues as its trademark. Where is it?
Built near a sandy white beach, Mimpian Jadi Resort formerly known as Kampung Resort and Club Sabah is in Tuaran, about 1 hour drive via Tuaran new road from Kota Kinabalu.
This long beach is only 200 meters in front the resort. A nice grass patch seperate between the resort and the beach.
The place is quite, away from city noises, enjoying scenery. Everyone must like the beach and the sea waves.
For your information, a Cuvier’s Beaked Whale was found dead at this beach in 1997, which according to scientists, was the first time such a whale was found in Sabah. The whale skeleton is now in UMS's Marine Museum.
"Looks like a cross between a crayfish and a lobster with characteristics of a prawn and crab. Experts in Sabah were stumped about the identity of this crustacean. One day in January 2006, Manager of this Mimpian Jadi Resort in Tuaran, noticed this creature crossing the road leading to his resort.
Never seen such creature in life, Christopher Chan approach the local news paper Daily Express for help. Picture was showed to staff in Fisheries Department but there are more than 500 species of crayfish in the world. Could this be one of the 500 or could it even be a new species?"
Private jetty provides a host of events such as a water village cruise, mangrove cruise, water bicycle, canoeing, fishing, crab catching, jet skis, banana boat and fish trawling. Other activities are horse riding, Malay blowpipe, lawn bowling, beach soccer, beach volleyball, batik painting, pottery making, beach bike, lawn croquet, shell digging, ping pong, etc.
Here, we had an enjoyable time dipping and splashing in the pool and enjoying sea view, the kids dipping in the pool and the parents/teachers gets intimated… Most of the pictures taken when we had a Year 6 Motivation camp.
"It's hard to trust someone the second time around after they already gave you one reason not to trust them."
Entering into a relationship with someone who has already hurt you may be harder for some, and easier for some, depending upon their tolerance for pain, and how forgiving of a heart they have, but make no mistake about it, it will definitely be an uphill battle. Just remember that your heart is special, and if someone wants to be in your life after hurting you once before then they need to earn this spot back into your life.
Father : I want you to marry a girl of my choice
Son : I will choose my own bride!
Father: But the girl is Bill Gates' daughter.
Next Father approaches Bill Gates.
Bill Gates: But my daughter is too young to marry!
Father: But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.
Finally Father goes to see the president of the World Bank.
This is how good business is done.
"It's okay to believe in love again."
A person must believe in their self, and a person must be willing to be able to put their trust in another person's heart once again. Saying these are the things that need to be done, versus doing these things is probably a much easier task, but if a person is willing to work hard at it, they may be able to accomplish a more fulfilling and more satisfying love than ever before.
I do believe in love. That's why I'm keep on waiting. Waiting without limit. Sometimes love hurts. But I keep holding on and love is a constant journey to what others need. It must be attentive, caring and open, both to what others say and to what others cannot say.
"Live for today, because yesterday is over and tomorrow may never come."
Living for today requires us to take great interest, and great care in every single thing that we do on a daily basis. Experiencing as much as life as we possibly can will allow us to live our days out to the fullest extent, because we never know if tomorrow will ever come.
Pencil: I'm sorry.
Eraser: For what? You didn't do anything wrong.
Pencil: I'm sorry cause you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.
Eraser: That's true. But I don't really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I'll be gone and you'll replace me with a new one, I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.
I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They're always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way... they get hurt, and become smaller (older, and eventually pass on). Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad.
“We never know the love of our parents for us till we have become parents.”
"Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them."
Make sure they also want to help you as much as you enjoy helping them. It's a two way street. Love to the fullest on your part and if it is not returned - sadly but strongly move on. God is with you. Your never alone and you deserve better.
There will be many moments when you can tell someone that you love how they make you feel, and how you feel about them, so take advantage of them while you can. Spend your time chasing your dreams, with the people who want you to capture them, and who will help you to capture them as well. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them, and live your life openly, and free.
There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see everything, including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”
The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying:
"Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."
We must be willing to take the time to get to know ourselves, and to get to know our own hearts in order to be able to know what parts of life will best suit us, and how that we should probably go about our lives. Happiness is the product of hard work, sacrifice, and reaching for your dreams, and truly without all of these components it is more than likely that happiness will not approach us, but will instead avoid us.

“Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again all 23 times”.
"I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me. They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today".
