According to the horoscope, the year of horse is …

A lively and high-spirited year for all. Life will be hectic and punctuated with adventures. People will find themselves reckless, romantic and carefree. A definite time for advancement…

This will be a time when decision and projects will be incorporated at high speed and with efficiency. Action will be the key word. Everything is on the go and we should take care not to drive ourselves too hard. It will be a rewarding but exhaustive year.


I am now reading “Tuesdays with Morrie“, a very touching book. You know, sometimes, you don’t want to read IT books at all. But just in case you want some, please let me know as Amazon.com just shipped me a few books about website usability and a few books about Pocket PC development.


I did not have much time to watch movies during the CNY holiday except one – Lord of the Rings. In the movie, the little brave young man Frodo encountered many many difficulties and he said to himself:

Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened

Then the old, intelligent wizard Gandalf told Frodo (actually two times in the movie)

Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.

Yes, sometimes we cannot choose what happened to us, but we can decide what
to do with the time that is given to us.
