[caption id="attachment_1827" align="alignleft" width="169" caption="Hakuin Ekaku (from www.shermanleeinstitute.org)"][/caption] A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked: “Is there really a paradise and a hell?” “Who are you?” inquired Hakuin. “I am a samurai,” the warrior replied. “You, a soldier!” exclaimed Hakuin. “What kind of ruler would have you as his guard? Your face looks like that of a beggar.” Nobushige became so angry that he began to draw his sword, but Hakuin continued: “So you have a sword! Your weapon is probably much too dull to cut off my head.” As Nobushige drew his sword Hakuin remarked: “Here open the gates of hell!” At these words,...

Jamie is an art teacher. When I visited Jamie during the evening, he was at his art class teaching a few children. There were five students. Due to the Chinese New Year period, children were having holiday so not many attended the class on that day.  When I arrived, Jamie was writing Chinese calligraphy, then we started our chat with warm greetings. On my request, Jamie showed his artworks to me. I had a chance to shoot some photos of these amazing art pieces: twin-headed turtle, alien in an egg, lizard fossil, lizard, fantastic drawings, dinosaur teapot, and my favorite the ascetic Gautama.  Later on, out of no where Jamie brought out his collection of his old drawings in his early years in primary school and secondary school. Jamie's paintings were mostly freestyle, his brushes flowed freely with his feeling and mood. It was really interesting to see how Jamie improved throughout the years, and how his style evolved could be anticipated from his early years' paintings. Furthermore, Jamie loved clay art and did many in recent years. Most of them were made and colored then displayed in nicely decorated fish tanks in his class. These wonderful display in class, however would provide an artistic atmosphere and would inspire the students' interest. These clay artworks were all my favorite especially the ascetic Gautame which seemed like a real unearthed artifact to me.   Jamie and his partner, Joan are both art teacher of the class. Although the mother wasn't there when I went, the daughter, Si Si was there learning from his daddy. A very artistic family indeed. And I know Jamie from his sister, Janic who is also a great artist and has recently resumed her art class too. I hope I have a chance to shoot Janic's artworks in future.  Photos to share with you: 

This is a song by Qi Qing (齐秦) titled, Wai Mian De Shi Jie (外面的世界). Actually i was searching for this song high and low. Thanks to CJ, i now know who sung this and the title of the song as well. This performance was taken at Ringos Cafe which is opposite of the famous Geographer Cafe in Melaka. Enjoy the song as much as we enjoy having you at Juesatta! :)...

Grace left the world a better place, at least her little corner of it. Groner, a secret millionaire, left her entire estate worth $7-million-dollars to her alma mater, Lake Forest College in Illinois. In 1935, Groner purchased $180 stock in Abbott Laboratories – where she worked as a secretary for 43 years –  and, thanks to her frugal lifestyle and thoughtful investing, Grace amassed a $7-million-dollar fortune in the last 75 years. Grace lived in...
