Touring Taiping with our Dahons





























May be it's better to change

A 55-year old man like me would certainly want to change. Change what? Everything. From lifestyles to the government. But change is never easy.

A Lovely, Friendly but Polluted City ... Jakarta

I was in Jakarta a week a go. Returned home with a bronchitis problem. I guess the air quality in Jakarta is really not meant for human consumption.
From the aircraft, Jakarta seems to be covered by smog
On my way to the Millennium Sireh Hotel near Tanah Abang
Every morning when I slid open the hotel window curtain, this is what I see ... polluted Jakarta



I decided to take a walk in the morning before the offices opened for business and it was a mistake without wearing a mask







The best and quick way to arrive and to avoid the "macet" or the traffic jams is to use the motorcycle

Day and night, the traffics are always the same ... heavy and more smog

What's wrong with Facebook?

I guess Facebook is not really a place for you, especially if you are a student who craves to be a good writer. It may be a fine place to share your thoughts but not a good place to let people understand your ideas. People in Facebook are lonely people. They love the companion of others, they want attention, they need others to appreciate them, they are always in a hurry, thus explaining why they don't wish to hear very long stories or read incredible ideas of others. Yet, they spend hours a day to satiate their inclusions.  Facebookers are humans. Not aliens from any other planets in our Milky Way.

To be continued ...

Write with your heart and rewrite with your head

Write with your heart and rewrite with your head. I first heard of this motivating quote from Sean Connery in a movie. But what if you have a bleeding heart and a chaotic mind?


I planted these kailans to remind me that everything can begin anew.

Beginning to Write

Of late, I really hate to write. It really is a block added with hatred and the result is just unimaginable. But I have to write something to keep my sanity and to keep low of my depression.There are so many things in my mind right now. If I were to write them down it'll take days to finish. Moreover, I'm sure it may not be proper for me to write something that may break people's heart and mine, too.

I have a picture here in 2002 when my graduate students and me visited a university in Beijing.


I'll think of something interesting to write but definitely not today..

Grounded Theory Workshop at Scenic Taylor's University College Lakeside Campus

Dr Andy Lowe from the Grounded Theory Institute, Mill Valley, California conducted the workshop.

Some of the participants from local varsities.

Taking a break at the cafeteria...cozy and clean.

These two GT experts are my excellent mentors

One of them took this photo of myself ... not bad heh!

The venue was at Lecture Room 5.

Students waiting for the elevators to attend lectures.

Taylor's University College new campus is just awesome. I took some photos for rememberence. Here they are:







I'm sure Taylor's UC students are so proud of this new Lakeside Campus.
