I've Learned!

I've learned...
that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.

I've learned...
that no matter how much I care,
some people just don't care back.

I've learned...
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned...
that it's not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.

I've learned...
that it's not what happens to people
that's important. It's what they do about it.

I've learned...
that you shouldn't compare your size with others
but do the best you can do.

I've learned...
that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that, you'd better know something.


  1. Very true, it’s apparent that you have tasted enough salt.
    These are of course a programme that has been painstakingly encoded in your subconscious mind. There are others whom may have a different set of “I’ve learned’s”. Mine is slightly different from yours but mostly the same.

    The good thing is, God did not create everyone to have the same set. He gave chance and space for us to have our own unique “I’ve learned” moments.

    Our success and failures, in whatever we define them to be, very much depends how we end up getting the information to conclude “I’ve learned”.

    Btw., I love what you did to this blog.

  2. I like this blog too... I think in this blog page, you should include the key word "citizen blog" and those who miss the last few postings esp the setting of V-O-M's website address, while finding CB with google, will also find V-O-M.... if the key word is included.If I typed "voice of malaysia" is hard to find this site with google...

    Keep up the good works that make this site interesting.

  3. I've learnt.....
    that we do not have to live up to the expectations of others.

    I've also learnt...
    that others do not need to tolerate our bad behaviour.

    Everyday we learn something new; the good we keep and the bad we discard.

  4. Testing....Chinese got a saying "the egg so tight also got chicken come out."

    For Najib, it is only a matter of time before your relationship with Altuntuya will come out.

    The submarine deal is very large, surely there have to be lots of people involved and a lot of discussions between a lots of different people. That is why stupid need an interpreter.

    If only Najib and Baginda were involved why need Altuntuya to interprete? Maybe only need her for sex or unless the two Najibs are gay. Given the trouble that she had caused I hope the sex was good and worth it.

    Given that there must be lots of people onvolved, someone must have seen Najib and Altuntuya together and when that someone comes forth Najib's cover and constant denial of ever having met Altuntuya will be blown to smithereens.

    Now the French courts are involved and "someone" in Malaysia is willing to pay the French lawyers, it is only a matter of time before the truth will emerge.

    I speculate that the "someone" could even be "someone" in Barisan. BN is not entirely happy with Najib and this is a good way to push this useless son of Tun Razak out of the way.

  5. I've learned...A lesson.

    At TESCO this morning...

    •This morning I bought some bananas and put them in the plastic bag without realizing that the bag was ripped. When I was about to pay, the cashier said "Awak punya pisang sudah keluar" ('ur banana is out of the bag') and I immediately looked down at my zipper......

    Anyway, banana is good fruit...esp to heart and acidic stomach.

  6. Testing....French got a saying "The chicken sings what the cock teaches him."

    The Star Tuesday August 30, 2011.

    Witnesses hesitant to come forward over Tung Shin tear-gas incident.

    PUTRAJAYA: The report on the controversial tear-gas incident at Tung Shin Hospital during the Bersih rally is yet to be completed due to a delay in witnesses coming forward.

    Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the ministry's investigation into the matter had been hampered by the attitude of hospital staff. END QUOTE...

    Of course la, who dare speaks, like a Corsican proverb,

    "Where there is a cock the chicken will not crow..."

    Some politician are so powerful in Malaysia and hope it will not be like a Chinese Proverb,

    "If a man becomes powerful even his chicken and his dog go to heaven."

    Whether BN or Pakatan, I think can't trust them because they are like a Chinese saying,

    "If you are married to a chicken obey the chicken. If you are married to a dog obey the dog."

    Anyway... Hari Merdeka to all at V-O-M and Malaysia is sure a great place to stay.. like a Sicilian proverb,

    "The young cock said to the young chicken: the whole world is like our home."

    Whether young or old cocks, plus the chicken... Malaysia is Great... Do you agree with me?

  7. I've learned... that you cannot make someone love you BUT CAN WE LOVE OUR PM?

    Quote from Malaysia Today August 29, 2011.... — Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s approval rating is now at 59 per cent, the lowest point since last May ....

    According to the pollster’s report released today, Najib’s scored the poorest with the Chinese community, with his rating dipping from an all-time high of 58 per cent in May last year to 38 per cent this month.

    The Malaysian Insider Tuesday, 30 August 2011… Kita president Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has suggested Malaysia should change PMs like Japan, says Zaid. END QUOTE.

    If love fail...shall we follow Japan's, a change of style at the end of every summer?

  8. Blogging in memory of CB
    from the depths of my heart
    I want to tell you how much I miss Citizen’s blog
    but i don't know where to start.

    From the moment I left Citizen’s blog
    my heart began to break
    the though of leaving blogging
    was just to much for me to take.

    When I shut my eyes on 26 th August
    I clasp my hands and with a brave heart
    I told myself it is going to be hard
    but only for a while.

    I turned to walk away
    and in memories
    seeing those years of Citizen’s blog
    was enough to make me sad.

    Facing the monitor and I began to google
    at that moment I knew it was true
    that leaving Citizen’s blog behind
    was the hardest thing I've had to do.

    While I sit in in sentimental mood
    typing Voice-of-Malaysia
    I just want you ALL to know
    I miss so much Citizen’s blog

    Now thanks to

  9. Bro sdalee... ayo lu punya pisang mas atau pisang tanduk?

    Thanks. You made my day.

  10. Yes, sdalee bro, CB became part of my daily routine since I started blogging in June 2007. It is a big mistake for TheStar to "kill" it just because it contain some anti-establishment comments. They refuse [or forced to by their "masters"] to face reality that borderless multimedia is here to stay.

    They think they have nipped the problem at the bud but in actual fact, they have made their readers lose trust in them. Yes, five-years-plus of time and efffort gone to waste - and they did not achieve their objective [to shut us up].

    Closing down CB is a victory to all CB bloggers who want peace, an effective and clean govt for a better Malaysia for ALL MALAYSIANS! Is this too much to ask for ??
