I was supposed to park my car there but seeing that the monkeys were loose,
I got frightened and parked somewhere else instead.

Known as Hotei (Japan) and Pu-Tai (China), these figures embody the ideals of the good life: i.e. health, happiness, prosperity and longevity.
They represent the later Buddhist notions that the good life was indeed attainable in this world. It consisted of self-mastery, a happy demeanor, purposeful endeavor, a deep commitment to the welfare of others and enlightened awareness.
Scholars believe that the Laughing Buddha is in fact modeled on an historical figure, a fat wandering Zen monk named Pu-tai. All sources describe him as obese, with wrinkled forehead, and a white protruding belly which he left uncovered. There was another feature of his bodily appearance that captured attention. Wherever he went, he wore a pu-tai (Japanese Hotei) or cloth-bag. Thus he came to be known as Pu-tai Hoshang or hemp-bag monk.
Legend has it that in this bag he carried candy for the children. Over the centuries within China, Buddhist notions of happiness based on self-mastery and enlightened insight were fused with popular Chinese life-ideals of happiness through material prosperity, thus today the hemp sack may be interpreted as filled with gold, filled with happiness, health, and other aspects of abundance.

One unmistakable criterium is certainly manufacture according to the international quality standard (GMP/ISO).This is not obligatory! However,only 5% of nutritional supplements are produced according to it - the FitLine® products are among them.
Beyond this quality standard, we have developed our own standards to improve the effectiveness of FitLine®. Because it is only effective products that are taken over a long period. Our two concepts, which are unique world-wide, NGP® (Nutrient Group Product) and NTC® (Nutrient Transport Concept) stand for the quantitative and qualitative composition of the products, their effective synergy and, above all, their so-called bioavailability - their absorption into the body. Thanks to those concepts, the FitLine® products can develop their effects exactly where they are needed in our billions of cells..
Effectiveness, quality, safety - that is what makes the FitLine® products excellent and unique.

I have been taking Fitline since June 2005. Only three products - Activise, Basics and Restorate. They are all in powder form.
Activise provides me with the energy that I need.
Basics helps with my constipation problem.
Restorate is a very good antioxidant and controls my stress level.

Lastly, when I opened my dashboard, I realised that I had posted 188 articles.

I was attracted to this neat decoration on the glass comfy table.
Wonder what does the feng shui say?
Maybe 'balanced' for a balanced life?

As my husband's shop was just around the corner, he followed me to the shop. After much discussion, the guy still refused to pay for the damage. So, we decided to make a report.
I refused, denied that and quickly drove back to my house nearby to get my ic. When I went back to the shop, my husband told me that the guy had agreed to settle part of it. He paid RM250 and insisted that I should pay for the rest since I was considered wrong too.
I got so angry. But he had already left!
Until now, my husband still hasn't sent it for repair! And I am still driving it!
