My family members are all overseas and just past midnight for me in KL on early morning of June 16, we had a family birthday celebration after our usual online group chats :
Father's Day on 20 June 2021
Hangout with Su, Leah and Anya
Fei my oldest daughter had also called me on Father's day and we had a nice chat!
Somehow, in a mystical way, I could pull up this old FaceBook post she made for me 7 years ago in the year 2014:
In fact, all the family celebration posts above were only copied to this journal post here in the following July month of 2021. I was overwhelmed by the mystical events occurring in the month of June so I just kept posting everything that happened in June in this other post.
10 Aug 2021
Posting on Dad's Behavior or Action day which falls on every Tuesday based on this 7 day program to keep him OPT during the pandemic era of the world!

Below is a sequence of my screen capture to show what happened earlier when Facebook muted as well as removed one of my 2 videos I had just posted. I filed my complaint which they responded a few days to allow the banned video to be displayed as seen above on the left.
I was elated to get a reply a few days later that my appeal was approved and the missing video on the left was put back to be seen complete as shared above in my embedded Facebook post!

39th Anniversary of Mom & Dad
(Scroll up for all other celebrations of the year.)
How time passes quickly and my understanding is that it's only measured by Man are my thoughts today for our Wedding anniversary. During this 2nd year of the Pandemic, I seemed busier than ever to lose track of time to realize of course that the year is quickly coming to an end!
Thanks Mom for spiritually interacting with me like how you pre-informed me that Fei is going to have her first baby!
All the good news seem to come together by the end of the year 2021. Han's long awaited bride who completed her 2nd degree in University of Toronto after YaleNUS came back to visit Singapore with the travel ban lifted. The Pandemic had delayed their wedding plans earlier. She will return to Toronto to complete her course to be a medical doctor. We can also expect that soon the wedding bells can ring! Hurray#*%!!
Just a few years ago, father and son acting as Cameraman and MC was given advanced practice to handle a wedding for a friend!
YEAR-END ACTIVITIES & MY FEELINGS
At the end of every year in my life, especially on New Year's Day, it has become more significant than my Birthday! Why so one may ask? Main reason for me is the calendar year with 'New Years Day' has become more important than my Birthday. The main reason is our lives are measured chronologically following a calendar year of months and days where most of the world recognizes and celebrates the coming of the New Year. Being English educated following western standards more than eastern, I have been recording my Life's History according to the English Calendar and not the Chinese one where the progress of my life is shared at www.AbacusToCloud.com
Abacus the old ancient Chinese simple calculator was what I played with when young to eventually progress to Cloud computing technology of today. I started my own personal research, using Cloud technology after my wife passed away in 2012 to contribute to the understanding of the subject of Human Consciousness. This subject was of keen interest of the Western World that began with Plato's definition of Body Mind Spirit where he translated Body as related to 'Appetites', Mind to 'Reason' but left Spirit without any translation.
I boldly embarked on a personal research project, after my wife passed away, to explain all three of the tri-partite nature of Man especially the last where Science has been ignoring but not anymore since Transpersonal Psychology of the scientific world accepted Spirituality as an important part of science! I was a pure science student in middle or secondary school and not knowing what I would choose as my future career followed my father's advice to be a Chartered Accountant and hence enrolled into business school. Somehow in 1977 in my tertiary studies in Australia, I was attracted to major in Computer Science as well as accounting. Mysteriously, with no background of religion planted in our family, in the final year of my studies in 1979, I had the opportunity to research/experiment into Spirituality.
It seemed that I really got involved in all three tri-partite nature of Man, due to my curiosity and always wanting to know the truth of things, like an auditor, but quit the profession early best explained here. In my early 60s today, very healthy verified by not catching any simple sicknesses of coughs, colds, fever etc, very energized physically, mentally & spiritually. I am also very well connected with my family and friends around the world as shared in this recent video of Penang that I found myself having to be there in the video below and some pics of a 2nd trip within a couple of weeks!
The 2nd trip to Penang
Besides the onslaught of COVID-19 to our country, just before Christmas, heavy rainfall created massive floods in low lying areas of the country including even our capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
The Joy of this Christmas season has definitely been the opportunity to help those less fortunate than us. Here are some pics taken a couple of days before Christmas of how members of our Church could help :
Donations of food, clothing etc were collected from members/friends:
They were then delivered to a national collection centre:
My personal joy & feelings on this Christmas season.
I have always led a busy life engaged since young to be constantly interacting with Family and Friends. In my latest website of my journals at www.PowerOfInteraction.info, I shared my life's experiences of this phenomenon.
Allow me to share what actually happened recently so that this can be documented in this 'Family journal' that started over 40 years ago where I've never stopped writing no matter how busy I was. Trials of our world today collectively is obviously evident. It has compounded personal trials which already exist that led to more illnesses and even suicides!
My interest in Human Consciousness, especially of my own, was always there and my decision to embark on a focused research years ago to unravel this scientific interest of a human being was more to confirm my personal 'blessed' state of constantly being able to be an OPT or Optimal Performance & Thinking person. This was despite or in spite of the fact I knew that I was far more mediocre in natural skill sets compared to many I know. The story follows of what happened on the eve of Christmas and my thoughts, supported with photos I took at relevant times of the day to help me remember my experience:
I was in our old home in Ampang area, where I recently shared the finding of an Asian Water Monitor. This time around I am sharing about my furniture moving experience.
...to the old home in Ampang
So much memory flows to me from raising our family in this home. Watch this video of how all the children played with their mother on the very same floor above!
Yet like the books and contents that I treasure, these memories are of the past but still treasures. That is how I felt when I decided I will keep the treasures where they belong until one day all will have to go physically but not mentally or spiritually. I am totally fine with that. It confirms in my research that 'Feelings' is the important source or power of Human Consciousness! With those same feelings, I put together all the cabinets myself and could or had to figure out how the wooden cabinet system worked differently from the light brown steel ones! Everything worked perfectly in the end with my own hands and head to figure things out.
But here is the experience I want to share this Christmas. I feel very much alive today, healthy & always motivated to do things. Living 'like' Superman, I am blessed with the energy or power to get things done. I can lead teams and groups. My FaceBook post embedded below shows I had muscle power from a team of strong men!
They actually brought all that I wanted to keep as storage in the old home of course, with the long cabinets for my files taken apart. They are truly the 'A Team to transport everything to a new site. I was worried when all was unloaded, could I put everything back together again like a 'Lego Toy'? I knew I could as when I first set them up in the previous location, I had done it all by myself patiently over time before the COVID-19 era as the following pics portray:
My two vehicles were down and didn't have transport to ferry my books but one phone call to a nearby friend loaned me this, shared in FB:
The books need to go back to the brick shelves I made on my own but I can easily handle that as seen in this old pic below:
Now there is something more important than fixing things that I want readers to know. We have to manage our Feelings that will Feed our Intelligence which really is the Secret behind my own history of achievements recorded at www.Talklane.com
It was Feelings that started my family life expressed in an old video below that I created:
Now I noticed Han's photo expressing it shared in his private FB post of his long awaited reunion with his sweetheart from Canada. I knew her when she came to our home in Singapore during her student days but as a photo/video man recording life as it goes on, she never allowed me to take a single photo of her until this!
Cute caption that Han wrote from the screen capture I made from his FB page!
The year 2022 round the corner promises more Happy Feelings for our family with my third grandchild from Fei arriving some time in March! I knew my wife Geok Lee was spiritually giving me all the promptings of things to expect in the new year. Everything is really spiritual, not just mortal or of flesh and blood. I humbly testify of this in the name of Him who is the reason why we celebrate Christmas around the world today. even Jesus the Christ. Amen. (Sat 25 Dec 2021)
Postdated story (Sun 26 Dec 2021)
We had a great dinner that after finishing, we stayed on chatting and interacting with our doggie friends!
I got home about 2am to check FB to find the boys were having their own dinner party with dogs too!
I started to check my messages to find that a couple had sent me a notice that there will be a family get together online after midnight but I missed it as I had lingered longer with friends after our dinner and didn't read the earlier notice sent to me online as I was busy moving furniture and things earlier in the day mentioned above!
Not to worry, another 'Zoom online' get together was arranged for Sunday past midnight which is optimal for everyone spread out in US to Asia!
Missed Fei whom I later connected one to one personally who informed me she wasn't feeling well. Understandably as she said she is in her third trimester in her pregnancy. This is the last term from week 27 to end of pregnancy. (Post-dated note: She made up in the New year with photos she shared in FB collected in my 1st journal post of 2022.)
Announcement & New Year Greetings!
Announcement & New Year Greetings!
On the Eve of my pseudo Birthday of 31 Dec 2021, I'm feeling the new year will be a real OPT Optimal Performance & Thinking year of 2022 for me. Pseudo feelings because it's really the moment where I really feel another year of my life has gone by rather than during my own real birthday, makes sense?
I also officially returned the keys of my office at wwww.BlueBoyMansion.com as my transformation mission there is completed as far as my advisory role is concerned. I've personally learned so much about what others are doing in community service for their fellowmen in the past two years. I made this video as an example of one man I got to know among many others like him whom I've interacted with in Bukit Bintang and hope you can catch his spirit of serving others that deeply touched me.
There were restaurants cooking food to feed the poor or needy with volunteers to deliver them daily too!
I'm moving forward with more Awesome goals Achievable with today's Aspiring technology to connect me quicker to the knowledge and experience I desire found in our world. The Human Being with his past history of sub-optimal Consciousness has created more problems that need new OPT performance & thinking strategies to resolve them. From my years of research & personal experience, I know the solution is a subtle change of pattern recognition.
I've been preparing for all these AAAs goals since young, following Futurists like Alvin Toffler and travelling the world to learn about it with sufficient interaction always with Family & old Friends or new, to optimize our own Consciousness!
My progress in life will continue to be shared at TalkLane. Wish me luck, the 'Fu' in my name that stands for it, so that I will have 'Mountains' of it as "Sun" has that meaning in my Chinese name! Meanwhile, my sincere wishes is still for everyone to have a "HAPPY NEW YEAR" indeed! May you find your own interesting and joyful ventures come true as well!
Yes I am an 'Out of the Box' thinker noted by my videos/photos extending outside the column boundaries of cell phones or PCs for this post! haha
