Give me more answers

There is a question that I always asking to myself. Till today I did not get the answer which will make me understand it. I forgot to ask my liver doctors. By the way I need to withdraw my blood tomorrow early morning for checking up my liver function. When I see my doctor, I will ask!!

Here is my question.........................

Question: "Why the right side of liver lobe is bigger than the left side of liver lobe?"

Here are some answers that people are providing (Not from doctors). I search them from Google............

-"because on the left side heart is present hope this will help good day/night ahead.............."
Helen said: To be honest I have no idea what is this person talking about!

-"The liver is a vital organ present in vertebrates and some other animals; it has a wide range of functions, a few of which are detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. The liver is necessary for survival; a human can only last up to 24 hours without liver function.[citation needed]The liver plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, and detoxification. The liver is also the largest gland in the human body. It lies below the diaphragm in the thoracic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion, via the emulsification of lipids. It also performs and regulates a wide variety of high-volume biochemical reactions requiring very specialized tissues.[2]Medical terms related to the liver often start in hepato- or hepatic from the Greek word for liver, hēpar (ήπαρ).[3]"
Helen Said: Well.... this guy explains well about the liver's jobs but did not answer my curiosity! I know what is liver for but I do not know why one side is small and the one side is big!!

-"If both the left and right lobes of the liver were equally large (the liver is the largest gland in the body), there would be no room for the pancreas. Do not try at home. "
Helen Said: This guy is good at 50% only and I will accept it as half correct answer.

-"It is the only way it would fit. There is a limited amount of space and the liver grew to fit the space available."
Helen Said: Hummmmmm That's not true! When 2 spots show up in my left lobe of liver, I asked my doctor that can he resects my left lobe side of my liver. He said to me.... left side will grow bigger than normal size. Means, not growning back to the right side! Wowww who can beat the real original creation!

-"The liver is actually the kidney, so your question does not make sense! "
Helen Said: I wanted to know this guy's education level! I dare to say he is not MD!

-"I thought liver was only on the right side ?? "
Helen Said: This guy definitely need to go back to Year 5!

-"Space constraints!"
Helen Said: No idea!

-"my left and right are the same size i think my middle livers the biggest."
Helen Said: I hope this guy will never become a liver surgery. You never know what he will resect or cut off your body parts!!

-"Why ask us. Ask god"
Helen Said: This guy will live longer and happier!

Last year she was 69 and this year she is 70 year old!! If my mother is a live, she will be 61 and my father is now 66 year old!! My parent are not rockers they are just simple people. If my dad starting to rock now I will tell him, "Father please go check your brain!"

Tinna Tunner, yes she can be my grand ma ma, don't you think so?? I like her a lot though... for me she is 1 million time better than Madonna or any other old rockers !! TT is beautiful, talented, sexy, leggy, attractive with bushy hair, big thick lip, good skin tone and has a very rock voice!! Her songs are the best!!

Last week I bought 3 music DVD...... Madonna, Tina Tunner and Michael Jackson....the latest one. OK they are different!! Of course I know their styles and songs are not the same. I turned off Madonna after 15 minutes but I stared at TT for a long time. What a entertainer!! I feel that Madonna pay attention to herself more than to the audiences but TT is really go for it. I can feel that she loves what she is doing even with this age.

Looking around how many women rocking at age 70 and as look good as her. Sometime good to be American. I was thinking this...OK lets put me in Tina Tunner's shoes but as a Burmese vision in Burma. Say I am 70 year old, a rock star in Burma performing with bright red lipstick, sexy short red tiny dress and dancing hell on the stage like her. You know what the Burmese will tell me....

"Crazy old woman, put her in the mental jail!!'

Looking at TT this is what I was thinking. Indeed God does give us a unique ability to each of us. We just need to dig it up! I will never be Tinna Tunner or Obama or Angelina Jolie or Hillary Cliton...etc., but I think I am a wife, a mother and a faithful believer. There are many who can't be a wife, a mother and a faithful believer so I am very OK with my position.

Latest news of the Burmese-American

Out of the bluemoon I google about the new and here is the latest one! Trial, hummmmmm what is a trial mean in Burma??

"Court hears witnesses in trial against Burmese-American

by Mungpi
Friday, 23 October 2009 19:54

New Delhi (Mizzima) – A special court in Rangoon’s notorious Insein prison on Friday heard two prosecution witnesses in the trial of Burmese born American Kyaw Zaw Lwin (a.k.a) Nyi Nyi Aung.

Kyi Win, one of the defense attorneys, said the testimony on Friday by an officer of the Rangoon Special Branch Police and an Immigration officer in the special court presided over by a Minglardon Township court judge, were not convincing and were vague.

“But we still have 13 more prosecution witnesses. It would be too early to comment on the case, but so far we cannot call Nyi Nyi Aung guilty,” said Kyi Win, adding that the next hearing has been scheduled for October 30.

The prosecution has charged Nyi Nyi Aung under article 420 and 468, of fraud and forgery. He is accused of possessing a fake Burmese national identity card, where he had allegedly placed his photograph.

“The two prosecution witnesses today produced the Burmese national identity card that was said to have been forged by Nyi Nyi Aung,” said Kyi Win, but he added that the witnesses failed to provide specific answers to several questions, which was unconvincing to the lawyers.

The Burmese born American was arrested on September 3, at the Rangoon International Airport while entering Burma from Bangkok. He was detained and later charged. The US embassy has contacted high court advocates Kyi Win and Nyan Win to defend him.

On Friday, two officials from the US embassy – a consular officer and a Burmese official – attended the hearing. But families of Nyi Nyi Aung, two of his aunts, were barred from entering the court room.

Though Nyi Nyi Aung is accused of fraud and forgery, the Burmese junta’s official mouthpiece, the New Light of Myanmar newspaper, accused him of collaborating with activists in exile and trying to instigate unrest in the country.

The newspaper also accused him of providing financial assistance to underground activists inside Burma to carry out explosions in public places.

“None of these are included in the charges,” Kyi Win said.

The Burmese-American was a student activist during the popular 1988 uprising in Burma. But he fled to neighbouring Thailand along with fellow students in the wake of the military crack-down on protesters. He later migrated to Maryland in United States, where he was naturalized as a citizen.

His fellow activists said he had a valid US passport and valid Burmese Visa, provided by the Burmese embassy in Bangkok, before flying to Rangoon."


Went to the church yesterday. The Pastor asked prayer request for 2 persons.

Lee, is a nice lady who spend her time in Thailand just to help the poor children who are living in a slum area in Bangkok. I think she is around 70 years old. she is a delightful person to talk to and did a good job to the poor children.

She was diagnosed with a bile duct cancer and is leaving to US in this week to get a further treatment. One of the church members told us that her son in law is a doctor in USA. This is a good new. I hope and pray that "May our God has mercy and care to her in this difficult time." I know almost exactly what she is feeling. I dare to say it!!

One of my wish is...... if I live till 70, I will be so thankful to God after what I passed through with the nightmare time of my life. By 70, then I hope and I will see my son's graduation, dating, wedding and his career. Also if this is in God's willing, I will see my grand babies which I love to see so much and so looking forward into. I am praying... "Dear Christ, please help me!" Even if my prayer is not answered, I am still do know that my God knows the best for me. Then.....

Seeing Lee yesterday, I am sure that she does not want to die. she has her loveone on earth who she is still enjoying them. Anyway who wants to die right?? But... so far the only person that I know who is ready to die is my grand mama, a 92 years old happy lady! A lady who reads bible, prays and sings is the one happy to die. This is her answered when I asked how is she doing.... she said, "Oh do not worry about me, God is taking care of me. If I go, I go to see God." Good for you grandma!!

Khung Ping, Our church's cook is the other person. Hospital said they found tumor in him. I am thankful that Khung Ping has a place to stay and always has food on his dinner table. I am sure the church will taking care of him as he is with us for almost 20 years!! I hope it will be.

The following is I read from an article of "University of Southern Califonia, Department of Surgery". It is a bout Bile Duct Caner!!

I am not a doctor but I do have 2 eyes. If you are loosing weight and lost your appitite without reason please go see the doctor. Generally I notice that those who diagnosed with cancer..they look very thin! Oh well, when they found out my tumor, I was fat!! Remember I said, I am not a doctor!!

"What is bile duct cancer
Bile duct cancer or cholangiocarcinoma are tumors that occur in the bile duct. These are uncommon tumors and about 4,000 new cases are diagnosed in the United States each year. Bile duct cancer usually develops in patients older than 65 years old.

What symptoms are present in patients with bile duct cancer
The patient usually presents with the following symptoms
jaundice (yellowness of the skin)
abnormal liver tests
weight loss
abdominal pain
poor appetite
weakness and fatigue.

Types of bile duct tumors
Two major types of bile duct tumors are found

Distal bile duct tumors: tumors affecting the bottom half of the bile duct
Klatskin's tumors: Tumors affecting the upper part of the bile duct

This separation between the two locations is important since the treatment for the tumors in the two locations is different. For tumors affecting the bottom half of the bile duct, the cancer is removed with a Whipple operation. For tumors in the top half of the bile duct, surgical treatment often requires removal of the tumor together with a liver resection (removal) in an attempt to provide a surgical cure.

Distal bile duct tumors
These tumors arise in the bottom half of the bile duct and are often intimately associated with the pancreas since the bottom inch of the bile duct goes through the head of the pancreas as it enters into the duodenum.

Periampullary cancers
Patients with distal bile duct cancer presents with symptoms that are similar to that of pancreatic cancer and ampullary cancer. Distal bile duct tumors, pancreatic cancer and ampullary cancer are often called periampullary tumors because all three present with similar symptoms. It is important to recognize bile duct cancer and ampullary cancer since the outcome of the two cancers is better than that for pancreatic cancer when patients are compared stage for stage.

Diagnosis and staging of distal bile duct cancers
Once the diagnosis of bile duct cancer is made, the patient requires a work up for surgical removal of the tumor. The work up for distal bile duct cancer is similar to that for pancreatic cancer. This link will guide you to a detailed description of the work up at USC for bile duct cancer.

Treatment of distal bile duct cancer
Complete removal of the tumor is the only effective and potentially curative treatment for cancers of the lower bile duct. The treatment usually requires a Whipple operation. Distal bile duct cancer is more amenable to complete removal compared to pancreatic cancer. Five-year survival rates of up to 40% are found after complete removal of distal bile duct cancer. "

One of the rules which Robins set up in our house is no borrowing money! (OK, I understand those who need to borrow the money from Bank, friends, private firm...ta ta ta ta). Everyone has different situations. In my family if we want or need something, we paid it all. The reason is...... Robins said, "we sleep well."

When I was starting into my little Gem and jewellery business , Robins said no loan or lend the money but....... he told me if I wanted to loan the money this will be only from our family money which I think, Oh yeah ......very good deal!! No interest, no due date, of course which wife will think this is a bad deal.

Yesterday I went to the Burmese Gem office in Bangkok and saw 8 carets Burmese unheated natural ruby. Asking price tag 30 million Baht, (about 900,000 US$)!! The ruby is so beautiful and the colour is just RED! Even with this price, there was a positive inclusion in the middle. Without this positive inclusion, I can't imagine how much it will going up!!! I touch it, I put it on my ring finger and I even smell it (ha ha) but you know... to be honest I do not need it! For sure this will end up in Taiwan or New York with a good price tag. Remember it is very rare to find such kind of Ruby nowaday.

While we were sitting in the office, a Chinese man came into with a rough Burmese Ruby (uncut), which is sooooooooooooooooo beautiful. I wish you all can see the beauty of this rough ruby. Calling prize at 3 million Baht!! Again I look at it under microscope and it was brightly red.

I was drooling on those two rubies but I am still sleeping very well!! I do not need them as my property. I like my liver more than the rubies!! Thank you for showing me though Mr. R.

I had lunch with Ms. M, Mr. D, Mr. R and KLM. They are my Burmese Gem dealers. Gem business is a bit similar to rug business. I mean the way handling to sell them. Rugs, you have to let the customers take them or send the rug to their home to try on and see how match with other furniture. So does the gems! sometime you let the gems go with the friend the one that you trust. But sometime the one that you trust turn into the one that you want to kill because of cheating.

The different is, rug who wants to carry and run away? A good rug can be sooooooo heavy, who wants to run with this heavy rug?? May be only the stupid will do such running. But in gems business, Oh yes... there are so many running away with them. Some even run one country to another.

At yesterday lunch table, I gathered how much cheating going on in the gems business.

Mr. D got cheating by a man from India with 3 million baht worth of rubies.

Ms. M got cheating by a good friend. The friend owns her 700,000 bath.

Ms. P also got cheating by a broker for 1 million baht.

I was so surprise to hear that how, when and where they got cheated.

Here I recall one of my stupid experience.......

Ms. M is early 40 and single mother to a 15 year old son. She is in the gems business for almost 25 year. She is the one who I ask if I need to know today market price. I know her for 7 years now.

Ms. M has a friend who does the same business. Two years ago her friend borrowed 700,000 baht from M. The problem is this woman never gave back to Ms. M the money that she borrowed. Sometime I saw this woman sunning around in Silom when I am doing business with Ms. M. Of course the two women borke up so badly. None of my business beside I just listen undated new from M who is so unhappy with the woman who used to be her very very good friend.

To my surprise, the woman who own the money to M went to buy a brand new house outside of Bangkok for 5 million baht. Everytime when M came to my hosue to show me some new gems, she looks so dead lately. M was so upset on her friend who did not pay back to M the money but living in the good looking house. I would be so mad if I were in M's shoes, don't you think so too??

My problem is if I see someone not fair on the other I can't take it especailly to M who is a woman and a mother, alone working her butt off to feed her son and herself also who is trying to buy a house in Chantaburi for her and her son's future life.

Without thinking I opened my mouth to Ms. M, "Hey M, be sweet to her and do not angry. Remember Sugar get more than bitter!! Get into business with her again and if you have the chance took her real good gems, tell her to show some of your customers. In point blank why don't you tell her that you lost them all." None of my business but here with my free advise which I did not think or realize that M will take it seriously.

I honestly admit it here when I opened my moth, it was just purely out of my anger seeing unfair which I can't take any cheating.

I saw Ms. M yesterday with a huge smile and said, "I did it exactly as your advise."!! She even Thanks to me. She said thank you to me 7 times!! but I feel so ants in my pant!! I really do. I felt like I invade some one's problem which is none of my problem.

If someone punch you, as a Christian you have to give your other cheek but here what happening was.......someone punch other some one's cheek and I, as a third person went to punch the cheater's cheek! Wowww...What wrong with you Helen??

I feel so bad that I have to blog it out! What I can say it beside, "Sorry!".

Expression of Love

We often talk about how much love that we have for our mother, father, sisters and brothers, husband, children and even to our friends.

I love my mother but there were things that I did not like what she had done in her life which effected us also. I do not want to detail here about me and my mother relationships but in beneath I know my mother loves me..... without a doubt on this matter.

My father left us when my sister and I were very young. I did not like him. Again I will not blog about this in specifically either... deep inside, I love him too.

My sister, I love her a lot still even she is not with us anymore.... Well.... we used to fight though!

My husband, I know he is good to me but there is a time that I want to hit him with baseball bat! I did not say I am the one perfect here!

My son, this little creature of mine, I love him sooooooooo much. He can drive me nuts but overall he is still a good kid and I love him very very much.

I loves my friends but still there are some time that we disagree and mad at each other.

What I want to say here is "All human love is imperfect."
Relationships between people maturing in Love for one another are more likely to endure.

Honestly to say.....the love that I have for those people are mostly around me and most of them are who I know too. To the strangers... I might help, that's all I will do but to love them I am not sure because Love takes time for every one. If there are needing people come across me, I will help though. Why? Christ told me so!!

Let see on the traditional wedding vows. Till death apart...right?? On that day two people said to love, honor and cherish one another until death parts them. But look at in real world of today.... these two are not dead yet but they parted by themselves. For some even to 7 times parting. Why?? the reason said..."We fell out of love", or "We don't love each other anymore" then again they still do have love for a new one more than 7 times.

In life I have learn that the only love that I can count on is.... and for me is.... only from "Christ!" ....So peaceful, so powerful, so content, so kind, more over, the love that give us future and which goes out as grace to the poor too!! Here are some who loves Christ and express it well.

Even though no one in these people's life is in perfect but they love Christ!!

I read the following from ............. here some

The song won't offend anybody.

It is a very good thing that you read the Bible... The Bible is Christ, for the Old Testament leads up to this culminating point... Christ alone... has affirmed as a principal certainty, eternal life, the infinity of time, the nothingness of death, the necessity and the raison d'être of serenity and devotion. He lived serenely, as a greater artist than all other artists, despising marble and clay as well as color, working in living flesh. That is to say, this matchless artist... made neither statues nor pictures nor books; he loudly proclaimed that he made... living men, immortals.

The U.N. Preamble reminds me of a secular version of the Lord's prayer because they say, 'Deliver us from evil.' Yet, they say it not to God, but to each other: 'Let us eliminate evil.' ...I thought about Jesus Christ--the perfectly virtuous Son of God who was tried before an essentially indifferent Roman court and destroyed. God's own Son was not delivered from evil and violent death through the legal institutions of His society... I conclude that it is a fundamental mistake to think that salvation, justice, or virtue come through merely human institutions.

Love of God does not mean we must love Him first.

Through Jesus' resurrection, God gave us hope for eternal life. God is with you at this very moment. He loves you, and He creates the good for you from all the right and wrong in your life when you genuinely believe in and obey Him

It is one of the interesting facts about Jesus Christ that people in every nation of the world regardless of religion, whether one is a believer or a non-believer, consider Jesus the greatest authority on human relations in history. His views on that subject have transcended all religions and cultures. It is remarkable that the person of Jesus Christ is accepted by everyone - even when they are not attracted by institutional religion.

Good to read if you have children

Got the following by email from a friend ! I like it and share with you!


How To Show Your Kids You Love Them

According to family expert Dr. Gary Chapman, most people express and recognize love in one of five methods: Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service and Physical Touch. Discover which of these applies to your child and show him love in the way that will mean the most to him. You will probably find that each of your children are different.

The following are some examples of how you can show your child love based on his love language:

Quality Time. While all children need one-on-one time with you, if you have one child who especially craves it, make sure you are giving that child plenty of attention. If he comes to you wanting to talk, make sure you turn off the TV and listen to him. If you know your daughter loves art, take her to a community art festival. Or if one of your children loves science, take her on a surprise trip to the zoo or children's science museum. If your child loves sports, take him to a minor league baseball game. You may even find yourself willing to take him to play laser tag or paintball. Stop and think of your child's interests and think of an activity that you can do together.

Affirmation. Some children thrive on hearing praise and encouragement. If your child seems to beam when you tell him how much you appreciate them or are proud of them, then try to continually think of affirming words for him. For example, if you notice your child is helping a sibling with homework, praise him. Or if he helps you out with dinner, let him know you are proud of him. Write him an encouraging note and put it in his lunchbox. And be sure to simply let him know that you love him for who he is.

Gifts. Sure, all kids love getting presents, but some children actually see gift giving as something beyond material objects. For them, gifts are expressions of love. You don't have to spend a fortune giving elaborate gifts to your child. Think of the little things that can become gifts. For example, if you visit a trade show or other festival, you are bound to be bombarded with free give-away pens and mini flashlights and gadgets. Save these for your child and dole them out over the next few months. Or if you are at the store, you might want to stop by the coin-operated game and candy machines and pick up a few small items. You might even find some good ideas at the dollar store. If you are creative, you can make some art or craft project for your child that he can keep in his room, or knit your daughter a sweater or scarf.

Service. If your child feels loved when you do things for him, think of some special acts of service that you can do. For example, if your child has a favorite food, be sure to fix that for dinner in his honor one night. Or if your child has a broken bicycle, repair it for him. You may even put a special snack in his lunchbox. Basically, if you see a need your child has, help to meet it, whether it be a new set of pencils for school or help with homework.

Physical Touch. Do you have a child who is a hugger? Is she always wanting to lean on you or hold your hand or snuggle? Even if you are not a "touchy-feely" person, your child sees affection as an expression of love, so be sure to give her lots of hugs. Even something simple as a pat on the back will let your child know you are thinking of her.

While each of your children will probably appreciate every one of these love languages to some degree, you will find that each one probably has a specific love language that is unique to him. So take the time to discover what makes your child feel the most special, and focus on showing your love through that language.

Sad Or Funny

Will you believe me if I said that the photos above are not real girls and they are boys?? Oh yes... Believe me in that please. They used to be a real boys!! In Bangkok, they are call LadyBoy!!

Some of them are very good looking and 99% similar to the female. I would say 1% can be seen as a male by the voice, the feet, the Adam's apple or the action likes... rolling eyes when they talk or flipping their hands often or adjusting their inner garments!! Example: as Nadal who has to touch his under pant often....similar that kind of touching.

As reverse ways ... Some girls do looks like LadyBoy too. Now most in Asian girls I would say around 30 to 40 % girls had done some plastic job on their noses OR on their boobies. On the nose is very clearly noticeable. There will be a thin shinning line sitting on the nose! Some girls with noses and boobies job and a big taller, then they become looks a like between LadyBoys and a real girls! Mean... can't tell who she/he is.

Anyway the following is base on the true story.

There are two ladyBoys working at the beauty saloon that I go. It is near by and I like them. One name is "Nin". He, ok lets call him she, she is only 20 years old. I think Nin is 5'5" and the other name is "B", she is 5' 4". B is only 16 year old. They both are so much wanted to be a real girls and guss what!!! they look good. Nin is the one who do my hair.

I even respect them as they work hard and earning instead of becoming a Gigolo Ladyboys! Nin likes to share his life to me and I listen good. Nin also confused me on him that he is born with the gene or by choice. I said that because by conversation, I feel that he believes that he is a real girl! he wanted a real nice boy friend and wanted to be as husband and wife... he said so too. He said that he is saving to cut off his private part to become a real girl... I would call he wants to be a "Transvestite"??

Last week when I went to wash my hair this is Nin told me. I will put the English as the way Nin said;

" Khun ( Ms.) Helen, I met a Faran (a white man) last month. He from Finn (Finland) and he came to cut hair in my shop. He saw Nin and he like me very much. He gave me fruit and flowers. Nin likes him too because he is nice. He is around 60 old and Nin sorry to him. He asked Nin to go out dinner one day. Nin sorry so Nin went to eat with him Thonglor (a street no so far from my house). Nin no lie because he is good old man so Nin tell him that Nin a "LadyBoy". I am no happy because he pay the dinner quickly and said to me..'You go home and I go home".

He left and Nin said he eat alone. My f
irst reaction was.... I laugh off so much with Nin. He laughed along with me for 2 minutes then I felt both Sad and Funny on what Nin was telling me. This is what I am thinking..

Nin is a nice LadyBoy and he is honest. If he wants to, he can nasty and without telling the Finn that he is a LadyBoy, went with that old dirty man and can be troubled to him. But I know Nin, he is a nice LadyBoy. Last 2 weeks a go on the news was that a LadyBoy at one of the beaches in Thailand went out with a white man and drugged him and took the money. Nin is a good LadyBoy!! You can't judge a person just look at him or her.

To that old dirty man: Hope he learn his lesson!! Life is not only SEX but can be a friend too you dirty old man.

PS: Nin is not his real name!!

My Blog

I starting to blog, "The Burmese Ruby Diary", 3 years ago, when I was recovering from my transplant in USA. I am not a wonderful blogger, not a high class writer nor an attractive blog.

Definitely........ Not the best or the top blog of the world!!

There are many blogs. I have seen blog about only Sex, Gardening, Fashion, Food, Political...etc., but my blog is purely what ever in my mind, I just put it down. That's why I call it," The Burmese Ruby Diary". I even share my blessing and my faith in my blog........ just simple way.

By now as you all know that I am a believer as I share my blessing, my faith and my trust often in my blog too. I can't hold into myself because I got so much blessing.

I was born into 3rd generation Christian family. Yes I was, am and will be a Christian. I thought I was a good person for attending the church almost on Sunday, I do not kill no one, I am kind...ta ta ta ta ta. Overall I am a good person I am going to be just fine is my attitude! I miss that "Simply because a person, or a society, accepts certain behavior as good does not mean that God has that SAME standard."

I was also missing the point................ "Love your God with all your heart, your soul and your mind." I knew that but I did not think into deep.

Now I do know the real meaning of above!!

I also noticed that if you or say....... I, become a true believer, then be prepare for unpopular among others. Some friends even might dop you. On top of that you might got mock or people think you are religion fanatic!!

Honestly I do not care!!! Let me be unpopular but what I need is, "God knows me who I am"!! Christ never say to me.."Helen, if you follow me you will be a very famous and popular person" but Christ said, "You will be saved!" That's Christ told me clearly. If there is choice between famous and save, I prefered save. Of course if I got both in famous and save, I am in double blessing!!!!

Right now I am enjoying with my family, Robins, Shan and friends. I admit it there is a time that we bite each other but we are still together. Surprisingly I do have a handful of friends who like me as the way I am.

Once Someone said, " During a mission trip to Russia I visited the Kremlin in Moscow. A tour guide showed me several cathedrals where the czars are buried. I asked if she ever thought a bout spiritual matters. She said, "Our cosmonauts came back from space saying they saw no evidence of God." I replied, "That's interesting. Our astronauts saw the earth from space and marveled at God's creation."

Creation is a visible disclosure of the invisible God!

If you want to see yes.... there is a true God.

Here are some "Quotes from some USA astronauts gazing upon their home planet... "

-The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As we got farther and farther away it diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful marble you can imagine. That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God. - James Irwin, USA

-My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity. - Edgar Mitchell, USA

-Looking outward to the blackness of space, sprinkled with the glory of a universe of lights, I saw majesty - but no welcome. Below was a welcoming planet. There, contained in the thin, moving, incredibly fragile shell of the biosphere is everything that is dear to you, all the human drama and comedy. That's where life is; that's were all the good stuff is. - Loren Acton, USA

If someone who is till asking where is God? God is near around you and what you have to do is just "reach"!!

News that makes me the thinking

Hello, brother watch out we are behind you!!

This morning I was sitting in front of my TV with a cup of coffee. Of course I was watching CNN as always. Here the new which make me do the thinking.....

"NASA is trying to bomb the moon's hole just to looking for the Waterrrrrrrrrrrrr!"

The costing is 79 millions to bomb the poor moon. Now I can see why the Chinese, the Russian, the Japanese and the France are talking that "Rain-man-Pee" or "Oil" should be the world main currency. Got the point??? Of course if we keep spending on BS projects!!!

I am not stupid! Yes..... I do appreciate that satellites or other NASA missions as... Security of our nation but I am not sure for this one throwing 79 million into the moon's hole. I am waiting for the positive result. If not, the NASA director should be off the seat.

Here what I read in yahoo new................

"NASA Attacks the Moon
by Mike Krumboltz
5 hours ago

Mike said, "Has a hyperactive five-year-old taken over as the director of
NASA? It sure seems like it. On Friday morning, an unmanned spacecraft launched in June will crash into the moon's surface. On purpose."

There is another news that I was reading in the "US news and world report'. It's goes like this....

Will we soon find life in the heavens??

Discovered:Distant "earths" and dirty ice on mars; up next: Wiretapping E.T.'s phone" by: Brain Vastag

"In the coming months, two new tools will greatly expand astrobiologists' capacity to hear and see other promising signs of life. Later this summer, the nonprofits SETI institute, named with acronym for the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, will begin listening for alien broadcasts on the new $50 million Allen Telescope Array. A spread of 42 radio dishes in California's Cascade Mountains............. to listen for E.T."

I hope at least they should hear the Alien's FART!!!!! Just to listen the deformed creature's voice, which might not understandable, from the outer space cost $50 million??? I rather like to think that they hear what Osama's talking or planning than the Alien's.... what ever languge, (another woo woo woo language???).

To the NASA: Thank you for screwing my brain GOOD!!!
