Getting to know … me

I am someone who had retired and who have time on his hands. I want to use the time I have now in a productive way.  I’m a novice at blogging, I hope you do not find what I post here frivolous. If you find that I have deviated from my objective, would you be kind enough to drop me a reminder.

What I write in this blog are my own views and opinions which are formed from the events and happenings that occurred through the sixty-odd years of my life that had gone by. They may be heavily skewed to my own philosophy of life but it’s okay, you don’t have to agree with them.

The photographs I post in this blog are all the ones taken by me of places, events, tours, animals, flowers, people that have left an impression on me. They have provided me pleasure and have given me happiness and I post them here to share the joys I have experienced with you.

The name I gave to my blog clearly indicate that I am someone who subscribe to the belief  that SERENDIPITY does happen. I sincerely believe that through our coming together SERENDIPITY will play its part in its own unique, mysterious way and bring the `unasked-for’ goodies to me and to you.

May we all be happy, joyful, grateful and  contented!

    I have often mentioned to my friends that each of us is a small candle, dim but can still be seen in darkness. Ultimatley when there are enough candles, the whole place would be lit up and we can chase darkness away.

    It is the same with truth seeking. All of us know a little. Together , by sharing our experience and knowledge, we will know more about the ultimately truth and happiness.

    Welcome to the blogosphere, novice101.

    Thanks, Doc. Will always welcome your comments.

    No matter how dim our light is , in the darkness it can still brighten the surrounding. That’s why, as you have said, every little thing and every one of us counts.

    Hi Novice 101,

    This is another novice greeting you.

    Just check the dictionary on
    –noun 1. an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
    2. good fortune; luck: the serendipity of getting the first job she applied for.

    We just follow Dr Hsu’s little candle light, and we shall not get lost!!

    It was through Dr. Hsu’s little candle light that I was led to your blog. Do you know, you occupy the “choice lot” on Dr. Hsu’s blog link?

    Justin Choo,

    Most welcome. I didn’t known I was placed under the ‘choice lot’ of Doc’s link. I am most honoured and most appreciative. Most thankful to Doc. I’ve seen your contributions to the blog-sphere in the past. Hope, individually and collectively we can contribute in some ways back to society for what we have recieved.

    I like this word as it connotes us getting desirable results though we don’t intentionally go out looking for them. Keep in touch.

  5. “I am presently at this stage in life. My sole wish now is to seek self-improvement and I hope to make changes fast so that I can find happiness and be a bit more wise.”

    I’m right there with you! 🙂

    zepolcreation, very happy for you to be in this stage so early in your life. Keep on the path.

    I enjoyed your views on America’s people. I believe it takes all of us to keep the light shining at a level where we can all learn and grow. Shine your light toward those who can learn from you while you learn as well.

    Thanks for visiting my site, I too look for feedback to grow!

    Thanks for sharing a little bit of your adventure with us!! And i really want to thank you for your comment on my article about Gratitude too, it was very interesting!

    About Thanksgiving! I totally agree with you, it is a really beautiful opportunity to celebrate and be grateful for what we have!! I am French though, and as for you in Malaysia, we do not have this feast here… unfortunately ;o(… but still, i m joining the American people in their celebration today, it is really one of the most beautiful celebrations I know!

    I wish you all the best! Naomi

    Hi Novice 101,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I, too, am a novice.

    We’re all attending the school of life. Life has certainly been my best teacher. I’m all for introspection and exchanging thoughts. Thanks for your insights!


    I thought you might enjoy this:

    I loved this. It’s so true what you said about how it it’s important you are wise versus right.

    Right fades. Wisdom lasts.

  10. You seem a very special person. Your presence in the world makes me smile 🙂 Thank you

    We are all novices. I wish I’d had some of your self-assurance and self-confidence when I was young. It’s only coming now. Feedback is good, but trust your intuition and pray for humility. I’m recovering from a past of low self-esteem, and every once in a while I find myself flying just a bit too high — and pray for the humility to remember: Everyone is special, not just me. The most important thing is to do the best we can and respect our fellow inhabitants. Not that this makes much sense, but it’s all I can offer at the moment. Cheers!

  12. Who Am I? says:

    Scribbling my soul desire
    on a 100-rupee note,
    signing it with my love
    on a south Bangalore road,
    I gave the note away —
    anticipating that it would
    come back to me one day
    I still wait for my soul synchronicity.
