He said, " I dreamed that someone is trying to kill Suu Kyi", Oh oh he also said the dream was sent by "God". That is why he started his salvation plan for Suu Kyi which the result was "A Big Failer!!" Is he sick? I think he needs to check in with a doctor who taking care of crazy people.... he must do that!
Here the reason he got released was (in my opinion only), The Junta does not like him to die in Insein Jail (we call that Jail "Hell on Earth" with pronouncing sound similar to "Insane"). If he die in Burma, our US government will nail to the Junta more.... may be??
I had dinner with very important people's daughters here in Bangkok. As you all know US put some rules on all the Junta. Like they can't go to USA but I learned that rule is only to the first generation not to the second generation (I was told that). One of the daughter's 3 sons are studying in USA.
Those over sea people (mostly from third world countries), who are studying in USA are whether filthy rich or government's good position's children. I heard it and I see it!!
OK back to Yattaw, I will say agian if God needs Moses for Suu Kyi...there will be much more smarter than Yettaw!!
Here some parts of Yettaw's talking with NEWSWEEK from Daw Aung Sun Suu Kyi 's page...."How was a retired bus driver from Missouri able to make a flipper-clad, two-kilometer swim to the heavily guarded house of Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung Sang Suu Kyi, one of the world's most famous dissidents? While John Yettaw languished in Burmese jail during his trial for "illegal swimming," all we could do is speculate. But now, in an exclusive interview with NEWSWEEK, Yettaw has offered an explanation: Burmese security officials let him. "I don't know why they didn't stop me," he says. "The man with the AK-47 shook my hand and let me in."
Here more from Yattaw's, Late Thursday night, the 53-year-old Missourian remained an enigmatic figure, failing to clarify lingering questions and offering rambling and occasionally contradictory responses. "I have to be careful what I say or it will hurt the people of Myanmar," he explained, using Burma's other name. Echoing his court testimony, he says he traveled to Burma hoping to visit the Nobelist Suu Kyi—and to warn her that he'd learned, in a divine vision, terrorists were planning to assassinate her. He denied that the military junta ruling the country had put him up to the visit. "I've been accused of being CIA, of being on the books of the junta. The idea is just ridiculous," he said.
It's not clear why authorities took a harder line this time, putting Yettaw on trial and ultimately sentencing him to jail. He says he doesn't know, but indicates that authorities did not seem too concerned about stopping him: instead, a group of guards languidly threw rocks at him as he paddled along. "I told [the judge at trial], Haul them in here and ask them for yourself." He added: "Maybe they were just lazy, or untrained or so cocky that they didn't think anyone would try to swim by them," Yettaw said. "Maybe they are so used to people being scared that they didn't expect anyone to do something so courageous."
OK as he said he is not CIA, he is not on the books of the junta, then what....... an A%^h@#$ or Anus man?? Because of him here the lady got to stay under house arrest for 14 months more??
See here what he is saying more,.... "Yettaw won't say what he and Suu Kyi discussed once he made it to her house. "It is so personal that I have no right to discuss our conversation with anyone, not with my wife and not with my children," he said, adding that he is "brokenhearted" that she is under house arrest once more. Still, he doesn't see his actions as the cause of her predicament. "I didn't put her there. I didn't imprison that woman."
Remember what Bill Clinton said, "I have nothing to do with that woman"?? but end up Bill was playing Cigar with that woman!!
In the interview with NEWSWEEK Yettaw said, "I am not crazy. I am not insane. I am not bipolar." Ok fine you are not any of those then who are you?? Just only one question to you beside you said you got told by your God...."Who are you???:"
I want to end up with this..Seeing him on CNN today, Yettaw look healthy and won't die soon!! Trust me on that too.

times as I did mention often.....
-I want to be a Lawyer but I ending up studied Biology!
-I want to live in Shan State under our Saophalong's ruling but end up living all over the world!
-I dreamed to have 2 or 3 children but end up 1 child. Well...Robins is not interesting to have more than one! Now that dream is dead!
-I do not want my mother and sister die early but they did!
-I do not want to take medicine (never before Vitamin nor other pills), but now I must take some!
-Who wants cancer but I did!
-I want to be 100% happy but I feel like I am happy only around 80%.
Soon I am leaving to Hong Kong to taking care of my the rest 20% of happiness. Well.....I know in this life no one is happy 100%.. if someone said yes, may be he/ she is lieing or pretending.
My step brother is not doing well and I need to go see him. Frankly he has no money to taking care of himself!! I can ignore him but I can't...this is my problem. My mind can't rest in peace but thinking what he is doing?
I have two step brothers (they are much younger than me). When my mother was dying, 2 things she said to me are (She can't talk much at all but she tried)...............
1. "Please taking care of your two brothers." (Talking about it today how could my mother knows I will be wealthy and can help some??)
2. "Where is Robins?" (That time I haven't married to my husband yet and I think she met Robins twice in Burma.) Till to day I have no answer that why she asked about Robins! The nearest I can think about is ....she was worrying about me and leaving me alone in Hong Kong??? But I was well taking care by New Apostolic Church.
Now without knowingly I become the "Core" of my side of family.
Yes..Robins is helping with me. I have this 92 years old grand ma ma that we are taking care of it. She lives in very nice place. Then I bought one apartment for my other half brother already. I feel bad about bringing in my family to my married life. I know this is no good but can't help. I have no other ways.
I hate to ride "Roller Coaster" and never did but I feel like I am riding "The Roller Coaster of Happiness"! Do you remember the movie, "The Pursuing of Happiness"?? The man was poor to dead but later become millioner and happy ending. This movie left me one question, the money even can buy happiness too??
I was not poor to dead but not rich. Here now I can say I married to a man who has money, even I can say, " A Millioner wife" but I never being happy 100%. I can't fine the "Core" of happiness at all. See what I mean..I have a good husband, a good and handsome son, I have money, I can buy what I want if I want to, I have a nice place to stay, and nice friends around me but where is 100% happiness!
Here I am not talking about "Faith", I have no doubt that I love my God. I am talking about "ONLY" earthly peacefulness and happiness! For myself I have no problem but my blood family does.
Someone once told me "you can train to be happy you know!" I will say this is BS for me! When the problem comes I do pray but as a human being I do feel I am sad and unhappy, sometime with tears.
No matter how much I have money or els....but knowing my step brother is almost ending up on the street is "NOT HAPPY FOR ME AT ALL". With this situation I can't train to be happy. I do not have tough or ugly or selfish heart.
Where is the core of happiness???? If you have one share with me please.

By Chris O'Brien
It was a cruel twist of fate: in November 2006 Chris O′Brien, one of the country′s leading head and neck cancer surgeons, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive and almost inevitably lethal form of brain cancer. As he knew, few sufferers survive past 12 months. Nevertheless, he was determined to beat the odds.
With the support of his close family, O′Brien took the option of radical brain surgery under the supervision of his friend, neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo. As told here in this warm and lively memoir, he faced the terrible toll of cancer and its treatment with an uncommon grace. In June 2009, after living with cancer for two and a half years, Chris O′Brien passed away. To the end he was optimistic and generous, relaying his energies into fundraising for an integrated cancer centre, Life house, at Royal Prince Alfred hospital. Honoured as an Officer in the Order of Australia, he was described by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd as ′a truly exceptional Australian′.
Dr. Newman is coming soon to be our house guest + his consultancy job in Bangkok! I think I did mention one of in my blogs that he is bringing me the book "Never Say Die" by Dr. Chris O'Brien.
I saw Dr. OBrien in flight TV interview done by BBC...I think??. I felt I got to read his book. I told Robins to order for me and he did. The reason I want to read the book is because..
1. I want to know about his cancer.
2. What kind of treatments he choose as the kind of cancer he had is very aggressive, normally die within a year but he survived 3 years.
3. How did he feel the day that he was told he has brain cancer as he is the Head and Neck Surgeon.
4.How did he prepared his last months!
Cancer is a unwanted surprise which will strike you any day, any time, any moment with or without sign!! Some got lucky or some got unfortunate.
Trust me this cancer will kill not only your body but also your emotion (become unbalance if you are not prepare for it), your money, your relationship, your happiness, your life, may be even to some one's faith.
For me yes, this cancer is killing slowly to some of around me but I never let this sucker killing my faith!! Again I say........
"What ever lay a head of my earthly life and my journey, I will trust in My Lord Jesus Christ... forever till I die!!" Cancer will never win me on that.

Someone said: "Many assume that science and religion are doomed to perpetual conflict-with religion increasingly on the losing side, especially in view of the astonishing progress of modern scientific research. These two expressions of the human spirit should surely unite in one vast acclamation to God. True faith should welcome science; science without religion become unfulfilled search in to the heart of reality"
Dr. Hardy's book said: "No writer expresses this link between science and religion better than the great paleontologist, philosopher and theologian, Theilard de Chardin. As a man of God and a brilliant scientist, he never felt any dichotomy but a glorious sense of unity, motivated by a driving sense of the sanctity of matter and of the indwelling presence of the Spirit o God in all things. Let Chardin's prayer speak to our hearts:
" O God, I believe that you are the origin of the impulse and at the end of that pull which, all my life long, I have been trying to follow; you are in the life which springs up within me and in the matter which sustains me. I find there is something better than your gifts. It is you your self that I find. You make me participate in my being with you." Amen.
What a prayer form the great Scientist!!! Enjoy reading the rest about ............. "Appendix"
The Appendix: Useful and in Fact Promising

The body's appendix has long been thought of as nothing more than a worthless evolutionary artifact, good for nothing save a potentially lethal case of inflammation.
Now researchers suggest the appendix is a lot more than a useless remnant. Not only was it recently proposed to actually possess a critical function, but scientists now find it appears in nature a lot more often than before thought.
And it's possible some of this organ's ancient uses could be recruited by physicians to help the human body fight disease more effectively.
In a way, the idea that the appendix is an organ whose time has passed has itself become a concept whose time is over.
"Maybe it's time to correct the textbooks," said researcher William Parker, an immunologist at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. "Many biology texts today still refer to the appendix as a 'vestigial organ.'"
The vermiform appendix is a slimy dead-end sac that hangs between the small and large intestines. No less than Charles Darwin first suggested that the appendix was a vestigial organ from an ancestor that ate leaves, theorizing that it was the evolutionary remains of a larger structure, called a cecum, which once was used by now-extinct predecessors for digesting food.
"Everybody likely knows at least one person who had to get their appendix taken out - slightly more than 1 in 20 people do - and they see there are no ill effects, and this suggests that you don't need it," Parker said.
However, Parker and his colleagues recently suggested that the appendix still served as a vital safehouse where good bacteria could lie in wait until they were needed to repopulate the gut after a nasty case of diarrhea. Past studies had also found the appendix can help make, direct and train white blood cells.
Now, in the first investigation of the appendix over the ages, Parker explained they discovered that it has been around much longer than anyone had suspected, hinting that it plays a critical function.
"The appendix has been around for at least 80 million years, much longer than we would estimate if Darwin's ideas about the appendix were correct," Parker said.
Moreover, the appendix appears in nature much more often than previously acknowledged. It has evolved at least twice, once among Australian marsupials such as the wombat and another time among rats, lemmings, meadow voles, Cape dune mole-rats and other rodents, as well as humans and certain primates.
"When species are divided into groups called 'families,' we find that more than 70 percent of all primate and rodent groups contain species with an appendix," Parker said.
Several living species, including several lemurs, certain rodents and the scaly-tailed flying squirrel, still have an appendix attached to a large cecum, which is used in digestion. Darwin had thought appendices appeared in only a small handful of animals.
"We're not saying that Darwin's idea of evolution is wrong - that would be absurd, as we're using his ideas on evolution to do this work," Parker told LiveScience. "It's just that Darwin simply didn't have the information we have now."
He added, "If Darwin had been aware of the species that have an appendix attached to a large cecum, and if he had known about the widespread nature of the appendix, he probably would not have thought of the appendix as a vestige of evolution."
What causes appendicitis?
Darwin was also not aware that appendicitis, or a potentially deadly inflammation of the appendix, is not due to a faulty appendix, but rather to cultural changes associated with industrialized society and improved sanitation, Parker said.
"Those changes left our immune systems with too little work and too much time their hands - a recipe for trouble," he said. "Darwin had no way of knowing that the function of the appendix could be rendered obsolete by cultural changes that included widespread use of sewer systems and clean drinking water."
Now that scientists are uncovering the normal function of the appendix, Parker notes a critical question to ask is whether anything can be done to prevent appendicitis. He suggests it might be possible to devise ways to incite our immune systems today in much the same manner that they were challenged back in the Stone Age.
"If modern medicine could figure out a way to do that, we would see far fewer cases of allergies, autoimmune disease, and appendicitis," Parker said.
The scientists detailed their findings online August 12 in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology.

I like Dr. Hardy alot. I met him in Gainesville, Fl. at the Presbyterian Church which my in law's are attending. He is a very likable man with loving, caring and kindness heart. Dr. Hardy also played piano very well. He passed a way 2 years ago when I was back to Bangkok, Thailand.
When I was recovering from my liver transplant in Gainesville (I stayed in US for a little over a year), Dr. Hardy was one of my prayer friends. I bought some Doughnuts for him and he received my doughnuts as a golden doughnuts with very happy faced... always greeted me with a big bare hug. He went to the church till his last moment..... till he can rolled that wheel chair. He is a true believer. I miss seeing him in Gainesville.
I am reading his last book call " A Faith To Fly By". Now I am at the last chapter call , "What Will It Be Like After Death?".
Do you all think about "After Death?" I did not till I got told that I had cancer. As I say many times I thought I am going to die soon but I am still talking after 3 years of cancer. By the mercy now I have no one dangerous spot in my body. OK , now I think about after death sometime though.
Many people do not want to talk about death. Some ever think that talking about death is a bad luck. For me I do not mind. In Dr. Hardy's book, said, " Two popular misconceptions about life after death: first, that it consists mainly of sleeping, hopefully peacefully, and second, that the heaven will be distinctly crowded . But those are not the only strange ideas about what lies beyond death."
This is my wish...if I die I want to be kneeled before my God and wish God will tell me, "You are not going to hell!" This will be the most happiest day of my life after death but I also know, it is all up to God. As always God does the last call!!!
People's opinions are different when reply about death as we all know so little about life after death as we can't see. For me this is what I believe.. for my life after death is up to my faith in God. Just trust and I will be taking care of....period!!
"Henry Thoreau, when asked for his opinion about life in the next world, replied;"One world at a time, brother, one world at a time!" At a dinner table conversation, a distinguished guest was plagued by a persistent society lady to give his opinion on death and the hereafter till he finally exploded:"Madam, if you press me. I believe we shall enter into eternal bliss, but I do with you wouldn't talk about such a disagreeable subject!" His conception of "eternal bliss" seems to have been as defective as his manners. Or was he concealing a fear of the unknown? "Men ear death," said Francis Bacon, " as Children fear the dark." This is said in Dr. Hardy's book.
Then I read this part in his book, "The late Lord Bertrand Russell announced with bravado his unbelief: "When I die I shall rot. Nothing of my ego will survive.". Sure the late Lord Bertrand Russell is now rotting under the soil. For me I do not care that my body will be rotting or not but I do care that my "Soul" will be rotted! I do not want to remain in "Rotting Souls" group...Do you??
I believe in "Resurrection". To be resurrected yes...you have to die first!!
"In the good old days when doctors made house calls, a patient in his terminal illness, asked a searching question: 'Doctor, I know I am dying. What do you think it will be like over there?" The doctor, a sincere Christian, felt unable to give an appropriate answer. At that moment, his dog that he took with him on his rounds, having escaped from the car, was whimpering and pawing at the door. Here was a God-given answer as the doctor spoke from his heart:" My friend, do you hear my dog? He does not know at all what lies beyond this door, but he does know that I, His master, am here. You and I do not know what lies through the door way of death, but this we do know: Christ, our Master and Lord, will be there. That is all we need to know. "Thank You'" said the dying man , as a look of calm and content spread over his face." This is the last page of Dr. Hardy's book and he ended the book with...........................
"Without being "so heavenly-minded as to be no earthly use," let us live to the full the life we granted here and now, with the prayer that something of heaven may even now illumine our daily path. Let us so live this life that, in God's perfect timing, we shall be ready to leave it, and to move on to endless exploration with the Lord of all life."...............................and he said, "My knowledge of that life is small, The eyes of faith is dim; But 'tis enough that Christ knows all And I shall be with him."
I just came back from Florida and every time I walk passed by Dr. Hardy house I think about him. Dr. Hardy, I am so glad that I know you and seeing your faith which make me stronger in my own faith, I love you and miss you!! Thank you for praying with me.

-On Lockerbie bomber free: The man was free because he has terminal stage 4 balls cancer. I do understand that the victim's families will be unhappy but this is what I see. If he is still in the jail, the Jail Authority need to see his medication and treatment. Here goes again on the tax payer's money spending on ugly people. Knowing he is terminally ill and give him Compassionate Grounds is understandable. Honestly I think the man is living with guilt after that day and never sleep well in his living life. Now with terminal cancer he should be home and should asking forgiveness. I just concerned that he is going around bombing again as knowing he is dying and said, "What the heck since I am dying, I will do the last bombing!!'
You never know whats in the crazy man's mind??
PS: To speak frankly, I think the man deserved dead sentence by earthly law. He killed 280 people and why he is still breathing??
-On flight turns back after passenger removes clothes: "A Southwest Airlines flight was forced to turn around after a dispute erupted on board that left one passenger completely naked." Said the new!!
What is wrong in our world now? This is what I understand, the dispute was on the altercation (on noisy argument!). How could argument end up naked?? On top of that in the public!! Then the plane turn around back. Why not the pilots came out and punch them both? If I am the air stewardess, I will help the pilots and join the punching too...I will. I can't stand because of one or two persons stupidly mouths fight the whole plane need to turn back. How many passengers miss the important things to do???
-On Is she a he? Athlete forced to take Gender Test: "A South African teenager will be forced to take a test to prove she is a woman after storming to victory!" is the news.
This is so unbelievable for me. You even can't massively win in athletic, if you did you have to get check up your "Private Part!". Normally when you win you got prize or applaud of your fantastic performance but in this case poor girl...She win and she got checked! If I am in hers shoes and am a real girl, I will sue their Asses!!
Why not the authority check before the game and why after the game. I am sorry to say........If the girl not win, her private part will be still "Private part". I blame to the Game Committee not the girl.

Cases of primary liver cancer rise
(UKPA) – 4 hours ago
Obesity and alcohol are fuelling cases of liver cancer, which have more than tripled in the past 30 years, according to new figures.
In 1975, there was just 865 cases of cancer that originated in the liver, but this rose to 3,108 in 2006, the latest UK figures show.
The rate of primary liver cancer almost tripled from 1.4 per 100,000 in 1975 to 3.9 in 2006.
Secondary or metastatic liver cancer - cancer that has spread to the liver from a tumour elsewhere in the body - is a relatively common disease but primary liver cancer has been rare until now.
Experts say the rise in drinking levels, obesity and hepatitis C is causing cirrhosis of the liver, which can develop into primary liver cancer.
Matt Seymour, Cancer Research UK's professor of gastrointestinal cancer medicine at the University of Leeds, said: "Three main risk factors for liver cirrhosis - alcohol, obesity and hepatitis C infection - are getting more common in the UK.
"So even if new cases of infection stopped, the number of cases of cancer would continue to rise for some years."
Hepatitis C is commonly spread by drug users but in the 1960s and 1980s, people did catch it from contaminated blood transfusions.
Dr Lesley Walker, Cancer Research UK's director of cancer information, said: "While this increase is a concern, it is important for people to understand how their risk of liver cancer can be reduced by changes to lifestyle. Cutting down on alcohol and watching your weight will help to reduce the risk of a wide range of cancers including primary liver cancer. Taking plenty of exercise and eating a balanced diet high in fibre, fruit and vegetables and low in fatty foods, red and processed meat can all help towards keeping a healthy weight."

The Democrat Senator Jim Webb's did a good job as Clinton did in N. Korea. Webb brought back that Yattaw to home. I also wish to know that how well Mr. Webb reads the Than Shwe's brain and what does he think about Than Shwe???. All the Burmese know that The Junta's brains are unpredictable!!
Reading the Rangoon's new, as said, " The authorities to show their friendliness and respect for human rights".... this saying make me ha ha ha ha in my head.
Lets see on friendliness: Who is that Black man went to Burma many times to do the work between Junta and Suu Kyi (Oh... well I forgot his name), Than Shwe did not give a fart on him. Then Ban-Ki-Moo, the Korean man , the UN man also went to Burma again Than Shwe's gesture showed, "I don't care and who are you??" type. Now the white man, Mr. Webb went there and Than Shwe showed up with the smiling face which even showing all his 32 teeth!! Then right a way he ordered to release that Yettaw. Is this call friendliness????? Hummmmmmm??? Do I see friendliness of Than Shwe had on Ban-Ki-Moo Or any others UN Representatives??
On Human Right: Don't never ever say the ward "Human Rights" in Burma. No body know what is human rights there yet. In Burma because of beating up every time when they opened the mouths, I will say where is "Human Right" in Burma??" A Buddhist country and all of the Juntas believe in Buddhism but allowed to kill the monks is unbelievable. For a true Buddhist will never kill the monks. Forget about Human Rights in Burma there is even no Monks Rights!! In Burma the monks are use to be considered as saints!!
From my pure thought...the Junta did not care about Yettaw. They just care about Suu Kyi to stay under their control. What Yettaw can cause to Burma ??? Nothing!! but Suu Kyi is a threat for them.
What Yettaw cause to Burma is "Suu Kyi got another 14 months more under House Arrest just because of his swimming. Bad Swimmer!! Why can't he swim in the big lake and see Ophral ??
I am not interesting in Burma's Politic, I am just a woman who feel for the Burmese. Every time I went to visit the Thai+Burmese border town this is what I see.
The Thai side people look healthy, well fed with happy faces but the Burma side the people look unhealthy, skinny, thin to the bone with unhappy faces. The town of Thai side is full of music, full of electricity lights but the Burma side is totally dark and black. They rely on the Sun light and candle light!! The Thai are driving car but the Burmese are using the two legs that come by the creation.
Most of the Burmese who live all over the world When ever I saw them the first thing they told me was "I have to send such and such amount of money to my family back home if not they will starve to dead." OR "My brother is very sick I have to send the money to get the medicine." OR "My mother is dying with cancer so I got to go home". There is no such good news for their families back home at all.
Meantime the Burmese who live in US is doing well. Yes, the first 1 to 5 years they have to work hard but after around 10 years the Burmese that I knew they all stay in the good house and good car.
To Mr Webb: Now Yattaw is back home and getting back to normal life but please see that Suu Kyi will get her fair share too. (Of course if you can). After many years of house arrest she deserves some happy moment right??
To Than Shwe: Life is so short, you are getting old day by day so why can't you become a one kind hearted happy old man? You look like your one foot is on the grave yard and the other is on the banana peel. You should meditate and time to think about old, dead, heaven and hell!!
All the best to the Burmese!!
Pi Inga is a relative to Princess VV. She doesn't look like Thai at all as her mixed blood of Thai+German. She is very fun to be with. She makes me laugh every time I am around her. She came to Princess VV's house 3 times when I was there visiting to Princess. She took us out to the Greek Restaurant for lunch too. Thank you so much Pi Ing!!
Pi Ing came to pick up us one day to have a tea party at one of her houses which she calls the "Tea House". Ing lives in a very nice area with beautiful houses around. Herself has a huge yard with 2 main houses and a cute house, hers tea house.
There are nice houses on the way to Ing's house, prize tags are for sure.... minimum one million $ or above. Any way one of the houses was having yard sale. I like to see it (In Florida sometime I found starling silver wear), so I told Pi Ing..."P Ing, can you stop for a while I wanted to see!!" so.... We did. P. Ing and P. Yin did not get out from the car but nice enough to stop there.
The house was also selling beautiful rugs (I need no more rugs in my house if I bought one more rug Robins will divorce me !!), but all sold out. Then I saw a very cute phone. Right a way ....I like it a lot!! (I felt in love at first sight there). I am not dare to ask how much as the phone looks good and so does the house.
Anyway I did aske as my gut told me to do so. I was preparing to hear like 150 $ or 200 $ or more. I said, "How Much?". The lady who taking care of the Yard Sale (in US if you wanted to do the Yard Sale you can call someone who do it for you everything), said...."Ah Dollar!"
I was not so sure so I asked her again, "Sorry how much?" Again the lady said..."Ah Dollar!" Now I confused so I spoke to myself out loud, "hummm what is Ah Dollar, what is that mean?" The lady heard it and she came to me very slowly and said........."Ah Dollar, One Dollar!" I was over joyed not only for the one dollar but also at last I understand what she's saying. I do not want that she think what that yellow lady doing in US without speaking English. Well I do speak Yellow English, how a bout that??
I bought it without a blink and a think! I handed out one dollar to her very proudly and took the phone. Pi Inga and P Yin thought I did a very very good deal..... so am I!! They told me shoud be selling 100 $!! I hope not that the lady is making mistake on the prize.
The night before I left to Bangkok, I carefully packed my one dollar phone in my hard cover Samsonite luggage.
Arriving to Bangkok, the first thing I did was opened my luggage. Voila....my phone was very good condition but my clothes was all messed up. Then I saw a note said "for your security and for all the passengers we check your luggage." The security made me think, "How could they know my luggage code?" I am not mad at all. Actually I was pleased to know that our security are checking and working good!
I understand why they checked because my phone was with the wire. I was happy that my baby, the "Ah Dollar Phone" is in a good condition and arrived to Bangkok with me without broken.

Suki is much much better Christian than me (I just felt it just seeing her). There is a Korean Church in Zona 10 in Guatemala which Suki attending almost every weeks. Once a week she will go to the church early morning just to go pray there...I mean 530 am!!
One day Suki was having evening tea with me at my apartment and this is what she asked me out of the blue moon....."Helen what do you think about of 10 percent tithing? Do you offering 10 % too? For 1 minute I did not know how to answer to her.
Thinking back I should shut my mouth at that time but I opened my mouth, as usual, this is what I told her....."Suki if you tithe 10 percent is OK but if you not, is OK too. What I think is, God only see what inside of your heart"....and I even told her about poor old lady and 2 nickels story of in the bible. I told Suki...."The poor old lady gave more than 10%. She gave all, everything what she has. Christ is please with her." Then I told Suki, "Suki agian if someone even who give 10% tithing after many thinking is not good either."
God bless me in many ways but without ling here I say..."I do not offer 10%". I have no gut to lie you about it. We do our own way of offering. I excuses lots of reasons why I couldn't tithe 10%, yet I had no problem or trouble spending any amount at the mall!! That's why I admitted that I am not perfect....I am bad!
For an example: This holiday I saw a shoes which I really like it. So beautiful and so wanted. I tough and tough and think and think whether I should get it or not!! Actually I think only 2 minutes then I bought that Ralph Lauren shoe for 320$. ( I know it is very ugly to put the money on but I just want to share how my heart works some time.....UGLY!!!). OK if you want to hear my excuse, here is my excuse.."I did not do that all the time!!!"
Then somehow to day I think about Suki, a woman who not only tithed 10 % but love Christ! I had seen hers joy and happy in God. I felt shame!!
I learn something that tithing is not a thing that you must do but sincerely a way of showing that we love God. God does not need money at all but God needs to see his children's hearts (with 10% tithe or without). Actually the Church is the one needs the money in order to maintain the church building, electricity, water, flowers, for employers payment, charity works to the poor countries etc........ Yes! our church needs the offering.
This is what I saw in Suki when thinking about her.......within 10 years in Guatemala, I saw she needs to open another factory in order to meet the asking quantity of JC Penny, her two daughters growing up so beautifully, one studying in USA and the other one is in Italy for art work, she has no problem with money, her husband loves her and respect her too. She has a wonderful family that she is very proud of it. Suki was blessed!!
I will never say that Suki has happy life because of her 10% tithing. I won't say that because simply I do not know how God's work in Suki's life but I know one thing for sure that God knows Suki loves God!
I will finish with this...................

I am so glad to hear that, meaning you are now stronger than ever with this new liver. Have a great holiday and it's
good you are away from Bangkok during this time fo the year. Weather here is so humid and hot. This is the time
that I wish I were somewhere else.
I praise God, Helen, that you are recovering so well after your liver transplant! Are you now 6 months after surgery, or a year?
This week for me marks three years after my open heart surgery (replacing a section of the body's main artery )the ascending aorta, the aortic heart valve, and three coronary bypasses.) Like you, I only need see the heart specialist once a year, and I feel pretty well (some artrhritis and old age.)
Enjoy your trip to Washington DC, and have a safe trip to Bangkok.
Best wishes, Dr.Keith Dahlberg
You are a grateful witness to the Lord! and praise to God!

Let me share with you some of my .................. OK, say what did I do and see during my holiday!
The plane took off on time in every cities that I boarded on. The flight between Narita and Bangkok ( I love all the planes because my seat are all flat and can sleep well), around Hong Kong was a bit rocking and rolling but I was well behaved because of my Activan. (I do not think flying is fun at all). I took half of my happy pill (of course doctor's approved), and slept almost 3 hours. Before I went to bed I was watching a documentary about Dr. Chris O'Brien (Hope my spelling is correct), in the plane's TV news. He was a very famous Head Surgeon from Australia. A man with so many recognizing events. He treated many brain tumors patients but unfortunately he was diagnosed with multi brain tumors himself. He become his own doctor! He wrote a book call "Never Say Die"!! ( Robins is ordered the book for me and Dr. Newman will bring it in 2 weeks).
In one of his interview he said..."When you got sick go to sicence and asked permittion from GOD." How true!! I always says...my doctors can treat me out of their best also to all the patients but God does the healing and God has the last calls.......always!! He survived 3 years from many brain tumors and just passed away last June.
I do not know him in person but this is my wish to him.....Dr. Chris, may you rest in peace!! "We"....all will join you when the time is right by our Almighty's eyes.
I visited Princess VV in McClain. We had very good time. She is a very very nice lady and one of the very rare ladies who takes me the way as I am. One day I told her, "P. Yin I would like to cut my hair!!" She did called a man who is working at the Tyson Mall, (he doesn't do the house call cut but to the Princess he does). I got a house call hair cut...cool!! I do not remember the man name but I found out he was a Kidney Transplant Receivepent!!
Immediately I felt a feeling that I do not know how to write it down. I feel like I knew this man for a long time. I told him..."Do we passed the same story of our earthly life!!" He said..."Yes!!" . A Kidney transplant patient cutted the hair of Liver transplant patient!! He is 6 years surviving from Kidney Transplant. He is not a rich man but got the best treatment from America!! Thank you very much America. In his own country he might be well dead for a long time as same as I am. This is what he said.."I will be never rich person but I am not regret because I am living. I am living each day at a time too!!".
Well I am getting sleeping now. I will blog on others ta ta ta ta and bla bla bla stories on next blogs. Love you all!!

Me and my family are in Fl. for summer break back home + with my 6 months check up. I got all the green light for my health.
Even with my shaking faith (mostly scare), by the mercy of my God, I am doing very well. After 3 years most of my doctors are happy with the results. Ofcourse for me is on top of the world!!
While I was taking infusion same time I was reading Patient Resource magazine. An article by Dick Hathaway who survived from chronic myelogenous leukemia said...."When I learned I have leukemia, I went home and told my wife, and we knelt down and turned it over to God"....."From that moment on, I considered it a win/win situation-I was either going to go to paradise and be better off than I am here, or I was going to stay on earth and be with my family and loved ones."
In the magazine, Senior Newsman Sam Donaldson who survived from Melanoma said.."We are fortunate-those of us who survive-knowing that so many people are not. I have not had any recurrence and I go every year and get a scan, and I do not have any foreboding about going. This gave me a far better appreciation of people who are ill and who have disease like cancer and the hardships they go through." Sam was diagnosed at the age of 61 with stage III cancer in 1995. He is still living.
Most all of us who cancer survivors are very blessed. To fight this very ugly cancer, not only we need the money but also we need loving, caring, understanding, kindness most of all miracle which I was praying the day I got told that I had cancer. We all counting the blessing different ways. Some time people who do not feel the same feeling as we have or had (as cancer survivors), thought we are different or crazy or over talk or too much talking about "God". People think we forget about science. For me Science is part of creation. Mostly come from people with brains who God puts into their head.
Well I only can say...hope you never face this ugly cancer which will changed your faith, your relationship, your material in good way or bad way.
Meantime enjoy and be thankful!!
Will be back to Bangkok, Thailand very very soon!!
Love you all and thank you very very much for praying for me.
