"Carbon-copying (CC) certain people in emails is like wearing a condom during sex... You never know when you will get 'it', so just got to protect yourself. You may get black-marked for things that you didn't do, just because you did not protect yourself." - Ah Seng
The above is quoted from zhZ'z blog...and it's really a classic.
CC is really like wearing a condom during sex...those who are scared and care alot for themselves will surely wear it = phew!
Those who heck care will not wear...and take risks = fun but too bad. Those who find it leH-cheY (troublesome) will not wear too, don't like the feeling..waste of time.....simply troublesome? Well, just like those lazy ones who forget to CC and get arrowed badly in the end.
(Found this from google image.)
I need to elaborate further on what I have learnt during my FYP days in the lab. Not about wearing condoms during sex, but metaphorically, the idea of doing BCC during e-mailing.
Yes, Blind CC (BCC), which means everyone you send to or CC will not even know you sent an e-mail to the BCC-ed person. BCC is the ultimate weapon to protect yourself, and even save yourself from the evil, in a very discreet way.
If CC is like wearing a condom, then BCC is like going for sterilisation or eating contraceptive pills without even telling your sex partner. A secret and powerful weapon that will avoid all risks. BCC is brilliant! But use BCC really discreetly...!!! ^O^

whY embezzLe wheN the persoN involVed directlY actuAlly...doesn't need cAsh?
in Buddhism, renunciation = to let go of every attachment...something liKe that. so i seriouzlY oversiT the currenT situAtion.
thiZ isSue iz too dAngerouz to dizcuzZ i feeL? buT i seriouzlY look forwArd to the trutH. ;)
somehoW...my mind doeZ not focuS on the articLe, but my miNd flAshes me to a disAppointing conversAtion (about renunciAtion) i hAd witH thiZ oNce-i-thoughT-iz-perfecT frieNd @ a hoteL. sigH....disAppointing!!!!! i am strictlY referrinG to my frieNd. >.<

yeZ, but you cAn write an essAy with photoZ too!! one photo leAdz to anotheR...and togetheR they tell a storY...the kiNd of storY dependZ on the nAture of the photoz tAken...
cAnon et. al. sponsoRed a photo essAy contezT (The Rice Project)...and it'z about Living. yeA...portrAying whAt life iz...most importantly, thiZ contesT aimz to benefit the reAlly unfortunAte in (eAst) sri lAnka...
z.yAng (you shouLd know who he iz if you folloW my blogZ..) iz very fervenT about photogrAphy, and he pArticipated in it witH a series of photoZ he tooK from indonesiA. froM hiz dezcriptioN.....the sAddest part iz the childreN there hAd to plAy in heApz of rubbisH....so sAd...:-(
hiZ photo essAy tAlks about the inbAlance of weAlth between the ricH and pooR withiN overlApping spAces in indonesiA....and theM findinG hAppinezz in their simpLe livez...
my personAl interpretAtion: it beginZ with a younG affluenT surfeR stAnding on the beAch, lookinG fAr acrozZ the oceAn...wonderinG if she'Z actuAlly hAppy? she wAz suddenlY striked by the mindfuL imAge of a rubbisH dumP hoMe of the pooR...she pondeRed deep tiL the sunseT...and she seNsed sAtizfaction and hAppinezz from the fishermAn beneAth the settinG suN...the nAtural sunseT portrAit bringZ her miNd to recAll the sunseT pAinting she sAw @ the rurAl areAz..she cAn never forgeT the bAby smiLe of the pAinter'z boy in front of thAt portrAit...and it endZ with the pooR pAinter who findZ simpLe joY in hiZ pAintingz...
from theM...i reAlized a rubbisH dumP cAn be a hoMe...and hAppinezz can be achieved from simplY fishinG under the sunseT...or pAinting your mind on cAnvas...eveN if you hAve little weAlth...
i'M not a weAlthy boY, i'M consideRed pooR.....and i am hAppy in generAl, so hAppinezZ dependZ on your owN stAndardz....but definitelY, weAlth iz unneeded for hAppinezZ. ; )

Ah-mei'z "Can't Cry Out.."
The above youtube clip showz my negativest emotional Kbox song, but I love singing it. Once, I repeatedly sang it for countless times alone at Kbox until the servers dare not enter to ask for orders...apart from peeking into my room. Yez, you inferred correctly, I Kbox alone sometimez, and I watch movies alone too. Don't you do that too? ;)
I feel that my tear glands have dried. I felt like crying today (for a silly emotionally good reason) but I couldn't...I think I felt the tearz in my heart...but they remained within my heart.
On the other hand, there are humanz who cry like fountainz...
I waz a tear fountain in my younger dayz (for even sillier reasonz)...and I have wondered why I was such a cry baby. Thuz, I decided not to cry anymore...yez, no more tears! Logically, thiz iz an optimistically good adoption...and it waz successfully adopted and maintained.
Well, I know my next tear drop will be for an exceptional reason....so who/what will activate my tear glandz again? Only heaven knowz...
Anywayz, so much haz happened, and I have so much to blog.....I will soon, after I organized my thoughtz. Lotz of picz and happy eventz...
With hearty tearz in the dark, illZ
P.S.: I suddenly re-realised it iz very difficult to understand anyone, and even more difficult to understand myself.
