As we know MAS has purchased 6 Airbus A380-841 & the first has just completed 5 hours on its maiden flight yesterday. Finally we've double-decker plane! It's going to satisfy the demand for air traveling & 1 way is to have a bigger & more efficient plane like the A380.
I believe that there's nothing worth it to bring all your wealth & fortune to your casket but what most valuable is what you bring to everyone before you enter the casket. (Quote by me heehee~) but really true & Apple's Steve Jobs did just that. In fact he did even more. He revolutionized the enter industry, market, world & every users' lifestyle. I believe he's the 21st century's Thomas Edison. He's a visionary.
Three Apples changed the World, one tempted Adam & Eve, another one fell on Newton and the third offered to the world half bitten by Steve Jobs. I'm just glad to live in this lifetime to see your masterpiece.
Today the sky is as gloomy as the news of the passing away of Apple's CEO Steve Jobs. It's a blow to me that send me a few steps back to my chair. Not because of surprise but because I know we've lost such a profound genius who had such great personality & highest attitude. A mastermind behind iMac, iPhone, iPad, iPod, iTunes, etc. Just yesterday I'm watching the inauguration of iPhone 4S. I extend my utmost sincere condolences. Steve has been such an inspiration to all of us.
A computer is a bicycle for our minds. - Steve Jobs
Microsoft Bill Gates said: "I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."
Sometimes I ponder the days when I cried & now that I think back, it's just another damned thing. People changed & often very easily & mostly due to surrounding. Some of those who used to be strangers have became closer to us & form a new friendship ring but there're some who were close have became more & more distanced. In the end, we learn to appreciate close friendship & always after we're apart. Sadly, sometimes the things other people say might be fine to themselves but we feel like a knife that stab us. A saying I believe is true:" Words can't hurt you much unless the one who say those words means a lot to you."
Pencil: I'm sorry cos you get hurt bcos of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.
Eraser: That's true. But I don't really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do someth......ing wrong. Even though one day, I know I'll be gone and you'll replace me with a new one, I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad. :)
I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They're always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way... they get hurt, and become smaller (older, and eventually pass on).
Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad.
"All my life, I've been the pencil.. And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents getting smaller and smaller each day.
For I know that one day, all that I'm left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have..."
From worm to cocoon to butterfly, looking back & back tracking, I see how much my growth & I learned what elder people always say: time flies. Well, as for me, there're ups & there're also downs. I must say I've yet to see the larger picture. Whether is trade/treat, thoughts/tricks, trait & truth, I've gained a lot of valuable lessons in life. Thank God & everyone around me who help put together who I'm today. I'll work hard.
When am I getting the last piece to complete the picture?
