Light

Phi 4: 8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.

Have you ever seen anyone look cool with a pacifier? Look no further. Meet my charming little nephew.

Strange, how it is that babies and their antics can bring out the 'foolishness' in an adult. Ever seen an adult babble and coo to a baby. Guilty, as charged.

To me, the Bible verse above reflects the wisdom of an optimist. Too often, we choose to dwell on the negative side of life and the people around us. It blinds us to whatever potential of good the object of our 'wrath' holds. It would do us a lot of good to re-learn some childlikeness. To be able to see the mystery and the beauty in all things. To be able to approach another human being without our layers of bias and just be able to appreciate... To experience and live life to the fullest without questioning every single aspect. Sigh... there is still so much to learn and unlearn.

Yea! He's so adorable. During MC's wedding dinner in Subang Parade, I tested the power of pacifier. He stare at me intensely and powered by the motor mouth accessorised with pacifier. Cute boy.
