Quality Death

Often, we speak about Quality Life. How we should live our life to be quality. What we must achieve and pursue to have quality life. Don we ?

Do you heard about Quality Death ? Die with honor like Spartan '300' ? Die at the age of 100 ? Or Die after you have great wealth, beautiful / handsome spouse, and whole bunch of grandson ?

Well, that's not truly about quality death.

If we do not know death, then we must not know life. Just like day and night. If one do not know night, then he will never know day.

In order for us to truly understand the meaning of Quality Life, we must understand Quality Death too. Because both of this is inter-related. If you possess a quality life, then you will have quality death too.

So, are you sure you are having a quality life now ? If you dine the best foods in the world, live in the grandest house in the world, and having the most beautiful women in the world, are you going to have a Quality Death ?

People are afraid of Death. Word 'Death' is a taboo for all of us. We will avoid anything that related to death. Even we reject number '4' in our daily life. We hate it instead. We don't want it on our car plate, we don want it on our house number, and we certainly don want it on our marriage date. People just too afraid to accept death.


Is death a NOT NATURAL thing ? Is death do not belong to this world ? Is death avoidable ?

As the matter of fact, Our clock of death is start ticking by the time we born to this wonderful world.

How long it will stop ? no one know. But certainly, everyone clock is ticking..... and soon we will be gone one by one.

Four season is a natural process. It is one with the universe.

Spring will come and go... Summer will follow up and end, continue by Falls and then Winter. And again this cycle for eternity.

A leaf, is destined to fall on ground sooner or later. It is normal and a fact of life. Just like Death. Everyone is destined to die.

In life, we have a lot of testimony. When we finish our primary school, our teacher wrote our testimony. When we finish secondary, our teacher too, will wrote on our testimony. Same applied to university when we graduate.. we will have a lot of testimony which reflect our behavior in school. So, everyone try to study hard and be a good student in order to get a good testimony from the teachers and lecturer.

When we dead, who are going to write about our testimony of death ?

Nobody will write for us, but ourselves. If quality life is just about achieving first class honor, master and PHD, can we wrote all this in testimony of death ? Nope... we can't.

What you going to write then ? How you successfully cheat people in order to success ? How you toying with our people feeling for your own self-fishness ? and greatest of all... the regretness feeling of things you never get to done.

This is how the Quality of Death defined. Death with a peaceful smile and ease in heart... and this will reflect how great you live your life. And this is how to define true quality life.

So, are we ready to die yet ? Certainly not. Cause we have a lot of stuffs yet to done. I am not happy yet and certainly yet to contribute my happiness to this world. How can I die yet ? I yet to show how much I love my parents, how can I die yet ? I yet to put-down my hatred, how can I die yet ?

If we are not ready to die, then we are not having a quality life right now. Death clock doesn't tell anyone. It will stop by anytime. I might die tomorrow or even later. I don't know. So, although we are young, don't think we will surely live till 80s. Don't waste more time, go for your quality life right now.

Appreciate for everything we have. Gracious when we are safely arrived home, because we had survive one more day..

Gracious when we are able to wake up, because we have given a chance to live a new day.

When our life is filled with appreciation, our hatred and sadness will gone. And we will appreciate for everything we own till now.. because we came to this world with nothing and we are going to leave this world with nothing also. Share what you belong to others who are still alive and distribute your happiness too.

-Live life with gratitude, because it create quality life and end with quality death-

ps : Special thanks to Liu Zi Xian teacher for the sharing... I am just spreading his philosophy according to my understanding. In fact, the quality content of my writing can't even truly reflect his meaning. But I had try my best.

-Make Sense-

Once upon a time, there was a village. A young man just lost his father. As a filial son, he done all the preparation necessary for a proper funeral. He hired masters to perform ritual in order to send his father to heaven. According to traditional believe, one should hit the dead man skull until it crack in order to send him to heaven.

Being a filial son, the young man hit his father's head with all his might. Hoping to send his father soul to heaven. However, no matter how hard he hit, the skull never crack and break. It is as hard as steel. The young man gave up. The masters told him that his father is going to hell.

The young man is so upset. He search for Buddha in jungle.

Young Man : Buddha ! Buddha !

Buddha : Yes, what bring you here ?

Young Man : Buddha, I am very sad. My father is going to hell ! The master who is so famous
and powerful can't do a thing about it. Help me please. Since you are Buddha,
you must be more powerful than them. Please perform a ritual for my father.

Buddha knew that this young man would not listen to his advise now. Nothing can enter his heavy ears.

Buddha : Young man, I will help you. Prepare two clay pot. One filled with stones. And one filled
with oil. Wait me beside the river.

Young Man : O really ? That's great !!! With your power, my father will be going to heaven !

The delighted young man was spring in joy. Without wasting time he prepared the necessary at the side of river, waiting anxiously for Buddha to come.

Buddha came.

Buddha : Ok young man. Let the both clay pots to float on water.

So the young man do exactly what the Buddha told.

Buddha : Now, use a wood to hit both pots until it crack and destroy.

Young Man : OOO, now I see your point ! By cracking the pot just like how I crack my father
dead skull, he can be sent to heaven. Hahaha

So, the young man hit the clay pots until it crack and destroy. He was so happy that both pots were totally smashed to pieces. Hence stones from the first clay pot submerge into water. Oil from the second clay pot float on top of the water.

Buddha : Young man, now you go call all the masters to come over here. And make the stones to
float and the oil to submerge.

Young Man : Impossible ! How can stones floats and oil submerge ??? Common sense la Buddha

The young man challenged the Buddha request.

Buddha : So, you finally realize ? Why you can apply common sense in this but not applying
in your father case ?

The young man speechless.

Buddha : For every bad deed you done, it will weigh your soul... and pulling you downward. And
for every good deed you done, your soul will be light.. floating you upward. If your
father is a good man during his lifetime, his soul will be light enough to float up to
heaven. And if he did bad deed all the while... then nobody can pull him up.

-A very meaningful story to share. live your lives by listen, understand, apply. Don't follow blindly by things you heard-

BHP Orange Run !

This is my second marathon run and it will be 11 Km this time. A slightly increment of 1 Km compare to Bukit Jalil Bareno Run.

Thanks to my past experience, I know what to prepare for my run.

Holim Running Gears
+ A pair of comfortable and light running shoe (Adidas Adeprene)
+ Milo Chocolate Bar as Breakfast
+ Power Gel as booster
+ A bottle of water
+ Light and flexible short pant
+ Sleeveless running vest
+ Human number plate

The starting point is at THE CURVE.

Arriving there at 7am and cramp ourselves within sea of people. Well, the run is free of entrance fee so it was expected.

For female category, their run started at 7.15am , and 7.25 am for male. So, are you ready ??

Yep, Gotta-get-get. Go !

I have never tour around Bandar Utama with feet. Of course ! who crazy enough to do that ?
So, this is a great opportunity to do this. As usual, I run steadily with almost exact same speed throughout the race.

While on the run, maybe after 20-30 minutes or so, I saw a guy in red resting ? crying ? or exhausted ? beside the road.

Hope that he will not appear on newspaper headline tomorrow. And further down, I saw a auntie coming out from a Mamak store.

She must had finished her minum teh XD . As usual, this kind of marathon event required police assistance for road-blocking. So, massive traffic-jam was pretty well expected and police being shooting-board from drivers...

My intention was to show the massive traffic jam. Treat the extra entity as bonus. Hahaha

Saw a SHELL petrol station. Wondering when will be its turn to organize one. You know, my wife love to dine its cuisine. 95 made was her favourite and 97 made once a while when I can afford.

Run across One Utama Mall.

And my usual free parking place when I went to work every morning. Call me arrogant ! But I am proud to cut down all the slim-fit runner one by one from the start. I never stop running even being tempted by free drinks at check-point. I just keep on jogging till the finishing line.

*Boo000* to all slim-fit runner! Fat Dude like me can Run too !!!!! Yiargh !!!

To my surprise, this run was so relaxing. Maybe because it had less steep roads, I couldn't believe my eyes that I am just some distance away from the finishing line.

Thanks to the Power Gel which I consumed during my 1H lap time, I got energy left to sprint my way to finishing line. Cutting down a lot of minyak-bocoring people.

When approaching the finishing line, a lot of DSLR camper pointing their camera at the coming runner. I feel syok abit and it gave a scent of being a top runner. Don't know why, I raise my hand and cross the finishing line as I am the champion. After that, I felt like idiot XD

Nice record I have. I managed to finish the race in 1H 15 Minute. Just like my previous run. But I ran extra 1 Km for this, which mean I had ran faster compare to last time. New record for me, Yea Yea !!

Frankly, for free run like this, I only receive a cheap goodies bag which contain a cert, a sport-bottle, and a mineral water. No jogging vest or medal which I am really looking for. Damn
But it is free neway.

At the finishing line. I saw a beautiful woman distributing flier to runner while baby-sitting a children. I assuming she was her mother. However, she is really pretty. But because I only have camera phone, I am so paiseh to take a close up look photo of her.

It look noob and stupid by going near her while holding a camera phone trying to snap a photo of her. This is all I can do.

I must own a DSLR ! Serious ?

F**k Yea

Forget about the calories loss. I am bloody hungry. I went to my favorite mamak store at Sri Sinar with my brother to have breakfast.

A nice plate of mee goreng AND a slice of roti telur and teh Ais

Nice Run ! I think I am mentally prepared for 21 Km in future. Any lobang ?? Jio me ya ;-)

Is love is self-fish ???

If I claim that I love a girl, I would promise to give her everything the best that I can give !

Am I right ??

If I claim that I love a girl, I would protect her from any injury, hold her so tight that she would never get hurt even by a tiny bacteria ?

Am I right ?

If I claim that I love a girl, I would never never make her cry and only wish for her smile.

Am I right ?

If I claim that I love a girl, I would STAY away from her if I knew that I have done nothing good but hurting her since from the start.

Am I right ?

If I, the person that claim that I am 100% love her without doubt, so confident that I am so in-love in her even it mean death to me... I am sure I could done all the thing above.

Because I love her..

Am I right ?

If I can't do so, I am just the same like 1billion of self-fish people around the globe that do everything they claim is for their love one


Am I fucking right ?

If I can't do that that.... Should I question myself


Love is not about how I wish HER to know how suffer I am for loving her.

Love is about how I wish HER to know how happy I am for loving her.
