Major Projects

I just hope God will bless us with major projects soon. I shall not disclose them for now but pray that our Heavenly Father will place his favour and divine intervention to secure the project for us. There are 2 different types at the moment in different states. Traveling is certainly tiring albeit being a passenger. I admire my colleague who is much older and could still drive long distances and shuttling around KL using the Waze GPS as I guided him. People his age would be retired by then, but it sppears that he is working very hard for his loved ones.

Can Love be Long Distance?

Is it possible to survive a long distance relationship? I am not sure, but there are cases that are successful like in Yuna's case. She is after all a famous singer based in the U.S. from Malaysia. She was recently married after years of courtship long distance. And she will carry on the long distance marriage with her hubby here in Malaysia while she works in the U.S. Some people are just pretty lucky, especially when you have money and it is not an issue. I just hope that with all that said, I could be the lucky few, but then again I cannot foresee the future. God says to live one day at a time and not to worry about the future, neither regret on the past. We should live in the present and that is why it is called a gift!

Château Margaux

Château Margaux, archaically La Mothe de Margaux, is a wine estate of Bordeaux wine, and was one of four wines to achieve Premier cru (first growth) status in the Bordeaux Classification of 1855. The estate's best wines are very expensive, with a standard-sized bottle of the Château Margaux grand vin retailing at an average price of $639. The estate is located in the commune of Margaux on the left bank of the Garonne estuary in the Médoc region, in the département of Gironde, and the wine is delimited to the AOC of Margaux.

The estate also produces a second wine named Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, a third wine named Margaux de Château Margaux, as well as a dry white wine named Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux which does not conform to the Margaux appellation directives.

Modern history

Following the Bordeaux economic crisis of 1973, the Ginestet family were forced to sell Château Margaux. An attempt by National Distillers & Chemical Corporation to acquire Château Margaux was vetoed by the French government on grounds that the estate was a national treasure. (This has since been reported as a Coca-Cola Company effort prevented by French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing.)

A successful acquisition took place in 1976 by French grocery and finance group Félix Potin, headed by Greek André Mentzelopoulos for a sum near 72 million francs, or $16 million.[8] Mentzelopoulos transformed the vineyard through restoring the neglected vineyard, chais, and mansion and the consultancy of oenologist Émile Peynaud.[7] By the time of Mentzelopoulos' death in 1980, Château Margaux was considered substantially restored to its former reputation, with the 1978 and 1979 vintages declared "exceptional".

At the beginning of the 1990s, an exchange of shares was negotiated with the Agnelli family but the management remained in the hands of Mentzelopoulos' daughter Corinne Mentzelopoulos. In 2003, Corinne Mentzelopoulos bought back the majority stake and became the sole shareholder of Château Margaux.

A bottle of Château Margaux 1787 holds the record as the most expensive bottle of wine ever broken, insured at $225,000. Margaux Hemingway received her given name from this wine

Aversion to others

I seem to have aversion to others and rather be a listener than a talker. I also avoid them if possible. There have been hurts in the past the make me what I am today. So, being in the computer field is very good for me. I work alone undisturbed, unless my boss gives me more work. He is also a workaholic, just like me. Today, I have updated 19 html pages of the company website with pictures edited for eye-candy and spruce up the credentials of the site. I want to make sure it is updated accordingly and this is done yearly or twice per year. I guess being in a forum, helps me learn new things with a mentor and this speeds up the learning process. I am able to build fully functional websites that attract people. I hope to be more sociable like 2 younger sisters, where they are leaders in their own right.

Google Adsense has Relaxed its Rules

Apparently Google Adsense has relaxed it rules to advertise; regardless of websites with adult content, etc. Previously, it was very strict, but with intense competition from Facebook with millions of advertisement revenue, it must have been more lenient with both publishers and advertisers. This is good for the industry and moreover, Google can also earn more revenue. Sometimes, it advertises on Facebook too and likewise. How times have changed for the better. As I have said before and will repeat it; earning money is not easy! You have to be very motivated and work hard consistently to earn a little allowance here and there. As of today, Dad's hospitals bills have escalated to RM 23k within 2 weeks!

Millenials are generally Lazy

I may not be a Millenial, but a Gen-Xer. Sometimes I am also guilty of this - being lazy. Anyway, I will always do my utmost best to earn a side income from the internet by milking it through moonlighting part-time writing articles and doing microjobs and completing surveys. It is a big pity I could not programm the various languages other than HTML to earn even more. Anyway, some time back, bought a book on PHP basics to learn about the syntax and logic of programming in my own sweet time. One is never too old to learn new things. Why do I say Millenials are lazy? Well this is because they are protected by parents and lead a comfortable life without much struggles where all the bills are paid by their parents and they use the parents' car without having to pay for road tax, petrol, etc.

Family is everything

Having your own family is everything. Provided with a hubby who is truly single and does not two-time you together with his estranged wife whom he has reconciled with, thanks to me being naive, letting him listen to Pastor Joseph Prince many message CDs. He's now become a religious fanatic, always talk about God to his relatives and wife, etc in the family group. he thinks he's very smart, but I feel he suffers from a great inferiority complex, having being a bankrupt, had to borrow at least $30k from brother-in- law, and start life all over again with my help.
