Chapter 2010

Nadai Nama Nama in 2010

The time is set at 2010. There will be 365 days to this time and Nadai Nama Nama (NNN) has decided that it needs to change too. How will this blog travel through 2010 and beyond? The thing is that the blogosphere is still very much the 'in trend' even though the worldwide web is trying to popularise video blogging or voice blogging. On homeground (Sarawak) where Internet speed is quite a hurdle for those who wish to venture into these new blogging trend, the text and photo presentation will still be prominent. And so it shall be as I have managed to equip myself with the basic gadgets to make NNN sail through this year. So how will NNN steer through 2010? With so many bloggers and blogs getting into the news sometimes for the wrong reasons and sometimes for the right reasons, it will be a cautious journey.

Nadai Nama Nama's arsenal for blogging this year is beefed up by the Nikon D5000 on top of the existing Sony Cybershot, the new Dell Mini Netbook with CSL's mobile modem, the Nokia E66 for communications and the (now no more) Sony Ericsson P1i which i replaced with the Sony Xperia X1 equipped with WinMo 6.1

NNN's blogging framework and concept will be more defined - basically what it is always meant to be. Less on the controversial' topics as I wish to promote 'Safe and Responsible Blogging'. Many of my friends have requested that I should be more informative with the knowledge that I have in my field of work. Some even suggested that I consider giving my political viewpoints. That's the wonder of NNN coz it will do none of these. It will explore different areas - the road less travelled. Blue Ocean blogging from NNN's window is what I will call it. Blue Ocean denotes an area less crowded - a window less opened. It is a contrast to Red Ocean blogs ~ where almost all the people you know will be crowding on the same topic trying to push their thoughts on the same subject. Everyone wants their piece on the same matter. I do not wish to parrot what is already in the mainstream media or popular Blognews. At least that is what NNN aims and if I fail to stick to myside of the  line, let it not be too often. But still it will be mostly about capturing (with my camera and thoughts) moments that would have pass me by if I did not describe it. Family, adventures, ideas ecetra ecetra from NNN's viewpoint the journey of the author's Cyber Life. Here's what I mean (A viral Email which I got from a friend which I find meaningful for NNN).

"A long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered. Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible. Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."

The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health , time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love. One day when we look back, we will realize that we don't really need that much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.

Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. Life is a balance of Work , Family and Personal time.. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence.

So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is fragile, Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy Life!"

Watch your thoughts Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words ; they become actions.
Watch your actions ; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character .
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

Nadai Nama Nama could not agree more to the above! Cheers readers.

The idea of seeking a balance in our daily life and be opened to positive changes sounds interesting and appropriate and these undoubtedly will move our life into a more meaningful and fulfilling direction. Honestly you have all it takes to be a successful writer as your posts are always professionally well-written, non-bias and ready to explore and embrace new ideas.What can I say except that the merits of actions always come back to the individual who performs them and it can manifest in various forms such as a happier life, inner peace and great confidence in oneself. So for chapter 2010 keep all the good stuff coming amidst the potential barriers be it work related or otherwise. Cheers !
