The Countries that are still missing from visiting my blog   Leave a comment


The Countries that are still missing from visiting my blog

Though I wanted the whole world to pay a visit to my blog, this is not to my wish as some countries are still at war or suffering human conflicts. World peace is a compulsory requirement. We wish for World Peace and Harmony for All in our life-time.

However, the next question is that has some of these isolated Island Nations have internet connection with the world? I shall google this and find out.

I am extremely happy and gratified that a total of 144 different countries visited my blog since its inception. From my own country Malaysia to Somalia with a few unclassified identified below:-

June of calamities, poor health and misfortunes   11 comments


June of calamities, poor health and misfortunes

It had become a regular habit to ask for apology and tolerance especially after the good wishes for my mother on her 86th Birthday recently.
After last Sunday’s celebrations, I went to the Outpatients Ward of the Penang General Hospital to look after my left foot which was cut slightly by 2 cm. The wound is growing to about 200 cm with a water-blister. The doctor straight away prescribe antibiotic to me for 5 days – 2 capsules 4 times a day. On Wednesday, I went to see another doctor at the Hospital who said to continue till end of treatment and my wound dressed and cleaned. The blister was cut away and it was quite a painful process. Further dressing shall be done again tomorrow.

This is the end of the third day of treatment and I feeling feverish but unwell even though the swelling has gone a bit. This is the most unfortunate incident I got myself into because of poor unhealthy habit. Health is wealth, folks.

To add to my misfortune, the speed of the internet is so slow that I cannot load any web-sites. Now, I have over 700 outstanding emails. I hope all of you understand my problems and perhaps I have to give up blogging and even photography, all together.

My sincere thousands of apologies to all of you.

Wesak Day Morning 017

Wesak Day Morning 021

Back to my conditional active blogging

After Wesak Celebrations so back to blogging and extremely slow & unstable internet connections, So complaining will re-start again!!!
“This site can’t be reached
aa-mg5.mail.yahoo.com took too long to respond.
Try:
Reloading the page
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_TIMED_OUT”

My blogging in my local environment is affected by the slow internet connection – a boasted first world country with third world facilities due to corruption and mismanagement from top to bottom, censorship and threats of arrest & jail if we blog the wrong and unfavourable things (my lips are sealed especially politics which I nearly always avoid) and my laziness that I confess. Owing to the recent internet instability for two weeks, I have an outstanding emails of 1,894 in numbers to go through now. The majority is from my fellow bloggers which I shall not delete nor ignore.

Bye and be tolerant as I shall definitely finish this back-log.

Leave of absence from Blogging   Leave a comment


To my fellow bloggers and followers,

To earn the additional cost of living for myself with the new GST, I shall be away for a week from home and my CPU. So Happy Greetings and Congratulations to whatever success you achieve when I am not around and also no blogging for the period. Good night, folks.

Hehehe, when I check my Indah Water ( Malaysian company for sewage disposal and cleansing ) bill, there is also 6% GST of RM1.44. When we shit in Malaysia, we also get taxed,…

From the Wayang Photo-Archives of my hacked Blogspot blog   Leave a comment


From my Wayang Photo-Archives
I used to have a Wayang Blog at Blogspot.com until it was hacked by Indonesian hackers a few years. Though the Blogspot administrator promised to “repair” my hacked four sites – namely Thoughts of SP Lim, Fascinating World of Chinese Opera/Wayang, Gardening in the Tropics and my Temple blog of Poh Hock Seah, nothing materialized after a few months. Just empty promises and my time wasted in posting in these 4 sites! I am deeply disappointed with this blog site. I am re-posting many photos (in hundreds) from these 4 blogs from Blogspot in future here at WordPress – a more reliable partner in blogging.

2013 in review   Leave a comment


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Yes, this is report card for 2013 which is worse in number of visitors than in 2012. Hopefully, you all and new visitors can support me in 2014. Thank you in anticipation as I shall strive to do better. Lesser fireworks for me.

Note on my blogging this week …
I thought I was plagued by another virus on my blog until I assumed that I had run out of storage space of my current 53 G space which I had just renewed on 18/11/2013. An email to inform us on the matter shall be greatly appreciated as we, the bloggers, are also business partners paying “storage charges”. There was a clause somewhere that I can seek a refund of some of the USD $90.00 which I paid so that I can upgrade to 100 G of space at USD $ 160.00. I tried all the options but it is not true at all. I assume that these refunds within a month are NOT applicable to foreigners or non-US residents. So, as the best option available I made the final choice of getting the 25 G space at USD $50.00. After 24 hours, my 2-columned format was back to normalcy. Money works wonder! Yes, nothing is free anymore, sigh.

Drape Your Dashboard In Living Color.

More colourful and easier to use the dashboard from today. Definitely, the choice of 8 range of colours was quite difficult but eventually I chose the brown earthly tones. Thanks, WordPress and the administrators for free addition.
