Who is watching?

Rachel earned her first RM50 working in a hotel coffee house/restaurant.

She related to me this interesting and thought-provoking incident –

The hotel is catering a certain seminar of a “Kementerian” (Ministry) yesterday. After the supper, few participants asked if they could take the left-over milk in the jar to their rooms.

Rachel’s reply is “no”.

Then, these participants asked her to get some warm water for them.

“When I returned with the warm water, the guests were gone, and the milk disappeared.”

I like this joke –

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note and posted on the apple tray:

“Take only ONE. God is watching.”

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note,

“Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”


The ingredient

The most important ingredient is always love.

I wrote earlier that I have more good in store for my 7-Eleven Birthday.

Yes, my journalists bagged 12 prizes of the total 20 prizes in six categories. Among the 12 prizes, three prizes were top in three categories. And that is the 19th Kenyalang Shell Press Awards held at Kuching Hilton on my birthday. Kenyalang Shell Press Awards is a joint project of Federation of Sarawak Journalists Association and Shell Sarawak.

My birthday lunch with Shell friends was called off due to my other business commitments. But, at the Press Awards dinner, it was all hugs and birthday wishes from Shell friends.

After the dinner, my best friend, Sandra came to fetch me for a drink – the coffee that I have missed for few days. Yes, coffee just before midnight.

Sandra sent me back just before midnight. She said, just before your dress turns into rags, and my car into pumpkin!

Back to hotel, few journalists/colleagues gathered and chatted until 2 am!

My 7-Eleven birthday that was – of GOD’S LOVE shared – the most important ingredient to fun, food, fellowship, friendship and fulfillment of life.

Thank you, everyone!
