Rose And Nightingale

I walked within a garden fair
At dawn, to gather roses there;
When suddenly sounded in the dale
The singing of thee nightingale.

Alas, he loved a rose, like me
And he, too loved in agony;
Tumbling upon the mead the sent
The cataract of his lament.

With sad and meditative pace
I wandered in that flowery place,
And thought upon the tragic tale
Of love and rose, and nightingale
The rose was lovely, as I tell;

The nightingale he loved her well;
He with no other love could live,
And she no kindly word would give.

Think not, O Hafiz, any cheer
To gain of fortune's wheeling sphere
Fate has a thousand turns of ill,
And never a tremor of good will.

Change The World

Can you even imagine what the world would be like if everyone was always truthful, positive and helping others? Would it change the world we live in? You bet it would. It would probably come close to living in heaven on earth.


When I refer to environment, I’m not just talking about the air you breathe and your physical surroundings. I am more concerned with the people around you. their thoughts and actions, can adversely affect you.
I strongly recommend associating only with positive people, or keep to yourself. The only time you should associate with negative people is when you are trying to help them. Your positive thoughts and actions will have a positive effect on them.
Emotions, positive and negative alike, are nearly as contagious as colds and flu. You can catch feelings of elation, euphoria, sadness and more from friends, family, colleagues, even strangers. Mood "infection" happens in milliseconds, says Elaine Hatfield, a psychology professor at the University of Hawaii .
When interacting with a negative person, take extra steps to remain positive. Otherwise, you may be influenced by his or her negativity.

SUBARU Challenge

These pictures are from The MediaCorp Radio Subaru Challenge 2007, It was just outside TAKASHIMAYA.
The contest started with 388 participants with only the top two driving away with a free car each.
Participants need to keep their hand on the car without removing it any time, and they need hands that stick like glue in order to win this contest and it is much harder than it looks.
