When one door of happiness closes, another opens

This topic is dedicated to my beloved lecturer Mealea. Thank you so much for a lovely recommendation letter. That’s very sweet of you to help me in this matter. It means a lot to me. I’d like to say thank you again. I wish you all the best to you and your family. Take care! 😀

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Helen Keller

A note of inspiration and encouragement to help some people keep striving towards their goals, hopes and dreams.


Basically it means that when something good in your life finishes you spend so long regretting its loss that you ignore other chances for happiness. It means do not waste time on negatives, because you might miss positives while you are sad.

I’ve learned that you can’t have everything and do everything at the same time– Oprah Winfrey

 You just cannot have it all.  Dy Dara

I am a man full of contradictions. I could go through it and show the numerous contraction of me. I have the best parents in the world but I have the most unsupported brother on the planet! 

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but combines with my positive thinking make it enough!” Recently I am in a good mood, for some unknown reasons, I’m feeling fresh and so happy. Sometimes I drive on the way, I can’t stop smiling. Although I am a very happy man I still have some problems. I’m more of a Dale Carnegie adherent. Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is governed by our mental attitude. He is completely right. So I always have positive thinking! 

My life is full of blessings and curses!  “When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.”

Life is wonderful! 🙂
Why? there are so many reasons that I and you can think of that makes our life wonderful. For me I am so blessed to have my lovely parents and I’m so grateful for the family and so many friends that love me and care about. Or I can think “My life sucks!” I just turned 27 a few months ago. I still have no sense of direction. I now realize that I am 3 years away from 30. Not that 30 is old. I’m just not where I want to be in my life right now. No real job to do, that’s how my life is at present…I do not know what I’m doing, where I’m going, or even who I am. Many things I thought I was certain of have now become questionable. Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have. Dale Carnegie 

Choices In Life

Any change, any loss, does not make us victims.
Others can shake you, surprise you or disappoint you.
But they can’t prevent you from moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. On every turn of life, you will always have a choice. And that choice can be your power. The choice is always in our own hands!

You cannot choose where to be born, but you can choose where to walk!

I never feel alive like this for the last few years! 😀

I was a broken heart man who needs mending. Recently I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends. These things made me start to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain. A few years ago I was not so happy because my heart was broken but I had big budget for travelling. Right now I don’t have that much money but I still travelling cheap especially when money was the big issue but it got me thinking, I am happier than the last few years. You know what the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.”

I’ll be happy once I’ve done this certain thing.
We all say this often not realizing what it brings. What if you can not have them you cannot have happiness? We look only to the future for our happiness. Letting life slip through our fingers in.

This wasn’t supposed to happen…it wasn’t meant to be…No matter how hard I try, I fail!

Life doesn’t always turn out exactly how you plan it. Sometimes it turns out better.

In 2007, I failed to get my student visa for my study in USA,  but one year later, I visited Australia and I was selected by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport as a national leader of Cambodian contingent, to lead a group of Cambodian youth delegates during the course of the Youth Camp for Asia’s Future 2008 program, in South Korea. Moreover, I can have good communication with my god brothers and many friends, but I just can’t have good communication with my own brother. I have the most unsupported brother in the world. But Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate him! 😀

I love to travel

I love to travel

 

I was a NL of Youth Contingent!

                 


We must always remember that in this journey to our purpose, our success and our happiness that when a door closes it is not the end of the road but it actually might be a blessing in disguise. As we work towards or goals, wants and dreams we tend to hit obstacles, walls or things just do not go our way. Keeping our courage and facing those will allow us to come that much closer to what we are striving for. Understanding and keeping faith that when one door closes another will open can allow you to not miss those opportunities that are so often skipped over because of focusing on what we cannot control.

Hold on tight, keep your dreams and hopes close and never feel discouraged when a door closes as that just might be the reason success will come your way. Stay open, positive and happy with the results in life from your hard work, heart and passion. Make the best of the situation and only focus on what you can control.

You do not want to miss an open door because you are focusing too much on the closed door…

Philosophy has always been regarded as a means of discovering the secret of happiness. What really is that has the amazing power to make us happy? That gives us joy, pleasure, enormous satisfaction?
The question is how we can relate it on our daily life?
I can relate good sayings to my daily life, for example: No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it. I just realized what this sentence mean. When we haven’t been in the situation, we don’t know what this sentence is about.
Remember that failure and disappointment are a part of life.
If you get only happiness then you don’t feel its value, do you?
Life is always full of ups and downs. We should not feel depressed when things are not going our way. Instead we should motivate ourselves to overcome the hurdle and enjoy life.

When all’s well with the world, we should not be overjoyed. Everything is temporary, life is always changing.

Look at the whole picture, never at parts of our life. And we should not be involved with each event. Take each incident as it happens and don’t attach too much importance to the outcome.

“A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm.”
Charles M. Schwab
Listen to the positive thought every time. The influence of words is timeless, let them work for you, and remember to always carry a smile in your heart.
Everyone cannot succeed in everything they do, but just keep trying. Failing does not mean the end of everything. You should keep yourself-belief, find out your weak point and improve it. Failing to achieve is not a failure, but losing your hope and motivation is a true failure. What I am saying here is not teaching you. I am not qualified to teach anyone, but I just want to share some ideas with you guys, audiences.  If you’ve never failed you’ve never tried.

I am a good many things, but a businessman I am not I mean I am not good at making money. It’s like a pain in the ass. The highest views of my blog is about 400 views per day and I want to make my money from my blog and I don’t know how! The people around me have everything, my brother and some of my friends make a lot money. How about me? I just save up my money every day to take my monthly trip. When I thought about it, this idea came to my mind “You can win life by all means..Yes..
If you simply avoid two things…
1. Comparing – with others
2. Expecting – from other
Life will be more beautiful!!” And I feel better! 🙂 09.12.2011

Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride! 😀 

I hope this writing can spread happiness to everyone!

How to be a sweet person

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 11:35 pm

Happy Khmer New Year! 🙂 I wish you all the best to you and your family! 🙂

How are you, my friends? I’m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care! 🙂

I am not the most pleasant man to walk on the earth but I have friends around the world! 🙂

This Topic is dedicated to one of my dearest friends, Kang Rithisal(Bong Sal). 🙂 Thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to a hundreds youth all over the Cambodia. “Your being small doesn’t serve the world…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” -Nelson Mandela

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need! 🙂

How to be a sweet person?
Role around in sugar! hehehe just kidding! 🙂

You want to be a lovely person?
“If you want to be loved, be lovable.” Ovid

Someone taught me something very important.

Sweet person is not all about saying the sweet words, it is about doing the sweet things.

For example, you know that today is your friend’s birthday and you make a surprised birthday cake for him or her, that is kind of sweet thing to do.
Give other example of sweet thing to do: You see someone sick on his or her Facebook status, you just write I wish you well and take care. I think that’s very sweet of you. DO SOMETHING NICE FOR THEM.
I know how to make good use of this lesson. 😉
If you can apply this lesson in your relationship, your lover will love and miss you the most out of their ex-lovers. If we can apply these good sayings in our lives, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that sayings, if followed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble. Let good saying, be our guide. 😉 It works wonders for me. I hope it helps you like it has helped me.

The sweet person is the one who is having a friendly, pleasing disposition; characterized by kindliness and gentleness, having a generally agreeable taste, smell, sound, appearance, etc.; pleasant and of course last but not the least agreeable to the mind and gratifying sweet praise.

Thoughtless words can wound as deeply  as a sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.”

you are a sweet friend! Such sweet words from a sweet person! God bless you my friend!

Old couple like this are really so cute! 🙂

Zoroaster said: “Doing good to others is not a
duty. It is a joy, for it increases your own health and happiness.”

 I have many good sayings that I keep in my mind this is one of them. “Good things happen to a good person. So you guys should start do something good for your people around you. To do good deeds for people around me is my real ♥pleasure! ;)  “If you’re looking for friends when you need them…it’s too late.” — Mark Twain I think this quote refers to someone must have good connection with people first before you ask any favors from them.

A sweet person has sweetness in his or her mannerisms, speech and actions . sweet person thinks sweet acts sweet and spreads sweetness by his or her very being to all around him/her. Somebody who shows compassion, sympathy, is very giving of themselves, honest, soft-spoken. A person who has the art of bringing happiness in people around him or her, has the tendency to create joy in others , knows the art of making friends from strangers.

The law is this: Always make the other person feel important.
John Dewey “The deepest urge in human nature is “the desire to be important””
and William James said, “The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”

“treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different then them.

The golden Rules for the world: “Treat others the way you want to be treated”  “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” So let’s obey the Golden Rule, and give unto others what we would have others give unto us, How? When? Where? The answer is: All the time, everywhere.

Being a sweet person entails thinking less of yourself, and more others.
Learn how to do for others more than you do for yourself. One way to put this into practice is to do random acts of kindness, just little things. With that said; but, if you didn’t know, or didn’t care about doing something special for yourself once in a while, you then wouldn’t know how to, or what to do for others, either.

He is my closest friend! 😀 I love him the most out of my friends! 😀

The fastest way to become a sweet person is to keep doing nice things for other people. Some change seems to take place inside me when I help others. A passion for sharing great sayings. Dara has always had a passion to help people have a happy life. I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Another example of sweet person: Have a beach-dinner 

Treat your love to a candlelit dinner under the stars, preferably to the accompaniment of some music playing off somewhere in the background. There is nothing more romantic than a dinner under the stars!! 🙂 You can arrange this also near a lake or a pond also so romantic. In this case to top it all, you can rent a small boat and row it after dinner to go out to the middle of a lake and watch the stars.

Some of the most unpleasant people and difficult people I have been around were self-centered “loners” who never seemed to consider others or their needs.

He is such a sweet friend, he bought a surprised birthday cake for me! Thank you so much my best friend.

Some poeple are sweet by virtue of being plain simple, simply the best. others have to expend their energy up and about talking to other people. I think before you decide to become a sweet person or anyone in mind, you must first ask yourself: is this how you wish to accept yourself, or are you trying to please others and risk becoming a slave to other people’s standards? If the latter, then assess how much you will gain and what are the benefits in the long run, and ask yourself are those standards realistic at all? But if this is how you wish to accept yourself, then fine, it is now an issue of self-improvement, but remember that you will still retain some of your original character. To become a sweet person requires inner strength, and inner strength is what we must first have in whatever situation, which can then help you to help others and achieve whatever you wish to achieve. You should have firm belief and optimism, then do it step-by-step, don’t expect changes overnight. Be sweet to closest around you, then be sweet to others especially children and disabled. After a few tries, it should be easier and you should be on your way to become a ‘sweet’ person.

I am a sweet man who is full of love and pleasure…

I have learned this and apply it in my life. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Knowing is not enough; we must apply.” 

 Make a difference in other’s lives by practicing little acts of kindness. Start by smiling often. Frown and you frown alone, but smile and the whole world smiles with you. Smiling is infectious; you can catch it like the flu. Someone smiled at me today, and I started smiling too.

I used to know one man he said to me, hey bro, I love and like you, and then I never I see him say hi or ask me how are you? you know what, “The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” Right now I don’t see my online friends who used to comment with me a few year ago. “Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart♥”

If a person is really a beautiful, loving, and caring person inside and does their best to take care of themselves, they will be loved by others. It was as simple as that. Let your personality shine, wins everybody’s heart. And Your generosity really stands out! 🙂 I hope you guys read this and apply it! 🙂

Somaly Mam is a very positive inspirational Cambodian woman.

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 8:22 pm

I find her life story so touching and inspiring and felt it was worthy to add to this page.

In this photo: Activist Somaly Mam attends the US Stop Sex Trafficking Of Children & Young People Campaign kick off event in New York City.

Somaly Mam is a very positive inspirational Cambodian woman.

In 2009, she was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people.

I am deeply proud of her work. Her life story is so touching! Why do so many bad things happen to good people? I am so sick and tired of this world’s injustices. I feel so bad for her. No one deserves this. She’s a strong woman, and all the best to her and her family.

In Laurie Holden’s words “Somaly is a modern day heroine who has turned her own horror story of victimization into one that is both profound and inspirational. She fearlessly challenges the system, raiding brothels and rescuing thousands of young women and children from evil sexual predators”

Activist – Somaly Mam
Somaly Mam named one of top 100 women: activists and campaigners on Guardian News and Media.

Growing up in extreme poverty under the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, Mam was sold into sexual slavery when she was 12, eventually ending up in a Phnom Penh brothel where she endured unimaginable daily torture and rape. After being made to watch as another girl, her best friend, was murdered, Mam escaped and was helped out of Cambodia by a French aid worker.

Instead of trying to rebuild her life in France, where she married, Mam returned to Cambodia to help girls who hadn’t been so lucky. In 1996, she set up her organisation Afesip (Action for Women in Distressing Situations), to rescue girls and women from brothels and support their recovery. She has already helped more than 4,000 women and children, some as young as five, escape sexual slavery in south-east Asia and in 2007 set up the Somaly Mam Foundation, to raise awareness, campaign for change and fund projects to rescue and rehabilitate women and children sold into slavery.

Mam’s work has come at a terrible personal cost. Her life has been threatened by pimps and brothel owners, and in 2006, her then 14-year-old daughter was kidnapped and raped by three men, as retaliation for the work her mother does. In an interview in 2005 , Mam admitted to periods of desperation, including more than one suicide attempt. But in more recent years, asked why she continues to fight, she has always responded, “I don’t want to go without leaving a trace.”

Anger Management

Writing is important tool to use to enhance my self esteem.

I’m really obsessed with writing! 🙂 Even I was on holiday I still wanted to write for my blog. Usually I don’t write when I am on holiday. But that day I wanted to publish some topics. But I still could not make it because the Internet did not work, I tried many times. I follow this quote “Don’t Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today” But I thought these topics can wait, so I just wrote some draft of something I came up with. I wrote something that I wanted to include in my blog in the yellow book. 03.04.2011

Angry & Miserable – Don’t Let It Be You !

The term anger management commonly refers to a system of psychological therapeutic techniques and exercises by which someone with excessive or uncontrollable anger & aggression can control or reduce the triggers, degrees, and effects of an angered emotional state.

One strategy for controlling anger is finding agreement with another person rather than conflict. The use of deep breathing and meditation can be used as a means of relaxation. Other interventions include learning empathy, stress management skills, forgiveness, changing how you speak about yourself or others and improving optimism. Other approaches emphasize experiential exercises that enable changes in attitude reducing the tendency toward anger. As the issue of anger varies from person to person, solutions need to respect and build upon each individual’s life experience.

You want brutality? I’ll show you brutality! hehehe just kidding, but seriously that was me before. When I hang out, I don’t want any trouble, but if  I have to, I will. As we get older, things seem less important.

I don’t hold a grudge against anyone. If I do, I do it in good way “the best revenge is success.” I live happier and more meaningful life than that people.
Who can tell me one benefit of the Anger? “Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Confucius

I think our angry behavior is like animal’s weapon to protect their self.

Anger is a natural human emotion and is nature’s way of empowering us to prevent our perception of an attack or threat to our well being. The problem is not anger, the problem is the mismanagement of anger. Mismanaged anger and rage is the major cause of conflict in our personal and professional relationships.

Domestic abuse, road rage, workplace violence, divorce, and addiction are just a few examples of what happens when anger is mismanaged.

You have no idea what I am capable of! You know who you’re dealing with. About to let you know. Heheeheehee 🙂 just kidding. I just act tough and that’s how I got through everything 🙂

I think I’m a nice guy. But I have a bad side, everybody does. Do not bring out my bad side. Do you understand what I am saying?

Before, my personality was like a mirror, whatever you did in front of it, you would see it reflected back at you. Because I have learned two phrases, my personality has changed from being a person that would be good to people who were good to him and bad to people that were bad, to a person that respects others and treat others as he would like to be treated. The two phrases is “treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different then them. And “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow”

Every mistakes made by one wrong decision. So make the right choice. 🙂

“While seeking revenge, dig two graves – one for yourself.”

Don’t let your today’s decision become your tomorrow’s regret!

Be patient. Because one moment of impatience can ruin a whole life.

I think I am more kind and easy-going then normal people but if you bring out the very worst in me, you will see one of the craziest men you’ve ever met. It rarely happens. My bad temper is probably much worse than some people’s bad temper. What is wrong with me? This time I’m serious. The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. Don’t get me wrong, I had been raised on a philosophy of non-violence. I don’t know how some people were raised, but my family never used physical force.

Some of the most unpleasant and difficult people I have been around spit on my life and I wanted to kick their ass. But I always have utmost patience, but it is like a time bomb ticking, wait to explode. And it is kind of a war inside my head. When someone say something in order to hurt my feelings I know how to play along and they will get what they deserve. What you want to do with me is what I want. If they beat me first I will beat them up. This is Not a Threat, It’s a Promise.You want some come and get some, but be careful what you wish for!!! it never happened because I am very easy-going and rarely spit on someone’s life first. Sometimes I can hurt someone, unintentionally. I am sorry about that! 🙂

I’m making myself sound bad, this is just one part of me, to know who I really am click here, https://dydara.wordpress.com/about

That is why I always keep these good sayings in my mind.

“I don’t want to cause my parents any problems.”

When I am angry with someone, I think of his or her good things that they did for me, or their good deeds rather than their bad deeds. These things make my anger disappear. Or I don’t like feeling angry, when I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. 🙂

I can find positive ways to relieve stress.
I have the courage to walk away from unnecessary conflict. Sometimes there is no need to prove you are a tough or brave person. There is always time for that. :
I like the way I am able to handle my anger. 🙂

If we keep these good sayings in our minds, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that sayings, if followed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble.

All these golden words are  like my self-control. Let good saying, be our guide. it works wonders for me, I hope it helps you like it has helped me. 😉

self-control = ability to control one’s behavior and not act emotionally, command over one’s actions and feelings. Ex: Although angry she kept her self-control.

Before, I was a dare-devil when I got drunk and sad, I drove very fast, It can get me killed and others too, without realizing the value of life. That was the stupidest thing I did. ហេងដែរឆ្លងផុត!!! Now, no more. One life is connected to many hearts. When you have a problem or lose your life, it can damage the heart of your friends, loved one, relatives and especially your parents.
we need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be. Now I become a cautious man!

I am moody, messy, naughty, stubborn, weird, annoying,… whatever that is imperfect can describe me, 😦 but I know how to behave 🙂

not happyI don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone! When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Positive thinking and forgiveness are the most important ingredient in the formula of happiness.

I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of
the rest of your life more than anything else. The more mercy you have, the less hatred you have.

When you’ve done something wrong you can forgive yourself, why you can’t forgive others?

You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is
like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go.
It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave
to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction.
You must break free.

Mahatma Gandhi “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Oh, boy. I’m real scared. Bring it on. Be careful what you wish for!!!

When anger is mismanaged, the results can be catastrophic in both terms of dollars and the waste of human potential.

Some Psychologists recommend a balanced approach to anger, which both controls the emotion and allows the emotion to express itself in a healthy way. Some descriptions of actions of anger management are:

  • Direct This would include making behavior visible and making communication clear. The end result is to not become resentful, but rather, be honest about the feeling of anger and what is causing it.
  • Honorable This includes identifying the moral basis for the anger, and being willing to dialog around the reason for the anger. In short, this includes taking responsibility for actions.
  • Focused This means staying with the issue of concern, and not bringing up irrelevant material.
  • Courageous This implies careful and thoughtful self-examination. Additionally, this means being willing to admit when one is wrong or when a reaction is inappropriate.
  • Humility This means seeking the truth instead of merely being defensive, and self-justifying.
  • Forgiveness This means acknowledging the wrong in someone else’s behavior or words and then letting go of bitterness and resentment associated with that wrong.
  • Listen This means hearing the other person out, asking questions around their feelings and their reasons for their action.
  • Thankfulness This means finding elements related to the situation where one is genuinely appreciative and expressing that.

A common skill used in most anger management programs is learning assertive communication techniques. Assertive communication is the appropriate use of expressing feelings and needs without offending or taking away the rights of others. It is typically started with the use of “I” statements followed by a need statement. For example, “I feel upset when you don’t take my feelings into consideration when you talk about your past relationships. I hope you can be more thoughtful and know what you should and should not say the next time.”

Another approach is to enable a person to reduce his or her tendency to become angry. Experiential workshops such as those provided by the Alternatives to Violence Project can bring about changes in attitude and improve abilities to communicate and relate to others.

With regard to interpersonal anger, Dr. Eva L. Feindler recommends that people try, in the heat of an angry moment, to see if they can understand where the alleged perpetrator is coming from. Empathy is very difficult when one is angry but it can make all the difference in the world. Taking the other person’s point of view can be excruciating when in the throes of anger, but with practice it can become second nature. Of course, once the angry person is in conditions of considering the opposite position, then the anger based on righteous indignation tends to disappear.

THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS

THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS

I just realized If you have a great sense of appreciate you can write a very good compliment speech! Dy Dara 15.05.2011

Not a day goes by I don’t think about two people and two journeys! The two people are my ex-lover and the girl of my dreams. And the journeys are SSEAYP and peace boat, the journey in my dreams. The ex-lover and SSEAYP are the past, but you know, in life, the first act, always exciting. The girl of my dreams and the journey in my dreams are just the dreams. But these dreams give me smile and hope! 😀


THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS! If you look like the person above or this drawing looks like someone you know, please tell me, then I would love to hear from you. Thanks! 🙂

I’m not sure whether to tell her or not. I’m hesitating even as I write this topic. When I have decided to do something, I put my all into it. It’s a valuable piece of work for me, the time and thought I spent to write this topic. My hope is that she’ll understand my sincere appreciation to her. The perfect girl I’ve ever met. After the many hours that I’ve put into it, will reminds me of her that I’ll keep her in my memory. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you! Just want you to know how I feel about you. I didn’t expect anything from you. “Expect Nothing And You Won’t Be Disappointed.” This is what I always keep in my mind.

What kind of guy/girl is your type?

 I have a verystrong feeling for one Pinay, what’s got into me? Recently, not a day goes by I don’t think about her. We don’t have anything much in common. She is more of discreet and very decent girl. But I am not. Love is funny, isn’t it?

I know when she read this she’ll think “I really don’t know what I did to you to be exalted like this.”

I haven’t had a girlfriend for the last few years but I don’t really feel lonely. My friends, travelling, Facebook, books, blog, movies, all these things keep me busy enough. That’s why I really enjoy single life. Right now I don’t have any girlfriend nor time for any romance but I have one girl in myheart.Before I wrote this topic, I was so excited and nervous at the same time. It’s not wrong to love a person. It never meant anything to you, anyway.
This Topic is dedicated to her with LUV. I just wanted to show my affection for her. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to my beloved friend June for her lovely personality. I’ve always liked her.

If you’ve met or seen her personally, you know she’s a larger-than-life personality. She is even prettier in person.


Posting your pictures here without getting your permission first, I truly am sorry. Dont hate me. If it was a mistake, it was a mistake of enthusiasm.

June Sinajon
She’s got the face of my dream girl!

She is just so perfect. Let me count the ways. She is sweet, she is kind, she is very decent, she is understanding, she is so smart and the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. I am not saying these things to every girl.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they’re gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry, they won’t hear you anymore. There is no going back. Try it! If you don’t try, you’ll never know.


Some people will laugh when they read this, I don’t know why and I don’t care! 🙂 When someone laugh at you the best thing to do: laugh with them! 😀 Just don’t make fun of my feelings. It straight from my heart. I don’t care if what I wrote here sound funny to some people. 

Never mind people that don’t understand. They will once when they go through the same thing.

I am not mad at someone who doesn’t understand this, either, because I can’t expect them to understand when they haven’t been in the situation.

It’s better to lose your pride to someone you love than lose your love because of your pride. Be a friend of thousand, be a lover of one, give your smile to everyone but give your heart to only one.

I feel awesome when I am writing something from my good feeling for someone. 😀

Have you ever heard about Love Moves In Mysterious Ways?

It just happened to me!!!!!! 🙂

I just realized I have very strong feelings for her that I won’t be able to hide.
I don’t want to hold it in. I would like to talk about it and smile at what is on my mind. She is and will always live in my heart.


To June: You can think of this as a crazy story. Try not to feel embarrassed again. You got nothing to be embarrassed for!

I don’t chat or comment with her often. Because I think by doing that will annoy her. But I do check her facebook photo often.  I think I am good at find something to talk but with her I just run out of ideas.

I never know that Pinay girl were up to this beautiful. She impressed me the most out of Youth Camp Girls by her beauty and personality. 🙂


Luv her smile! 🙂

June, you’re such a romantic. That’s why I’ve always been so fond of you.

She’s beautiful, smart, talented, and seems almost ideal female. She is truly a sweet person, …whatever that is perfect can describe her! 🙂

I like the way she smiles, talks, the way she express her ideas and everything of her.


Other qualities she has that make her an outstanding woman. She not only has the outer beauty but also has the inner beauty. I like the way she is so nice to people. If a person is really a beautiful, loving, and caring person inside and does their best to take care of themselves, they will be loved by others. 

She is currently studying for a Master’s degree in South Korea. (on scholarship)

She is the girl of my dreams. you are truly a sweet person, dont ever forget that! 🙂

How did I know her?

We participated in Youth Camp for Asia’s future 2008 in South Korea. We were on a bus going somewhere that I first met June and it was immediately clear to me that she is a great woman. 

To me, June has a great charisma! 😀

One thing I love the most about Youth camp was: know her.

She is the girl of my dreams:

– That’s just what mydream” girl looks like.

–  Has an amazing smile.

Smart girl.

It is my honor to know you, June. With lots of ♥love and hopes to a long lasting friendship. You are in my mind and in my heart. I’m Glad to have you! Just wanted to remind you how special you are!

From your public admirer! 🙂 (Former Secret Admirer! 🙂 )

Dara.

I am so happy when I see your name on my notifications! 🙂 When I see her comment on my FB I feel so happy. 😀

She replied after read this topic: Hey Dara, you’ve violated a lot of my FB rights, like taking and posting my photos without my permission… Hahaha! But what can I do?… =P Again, all I can say is thank you. I’m flattered.. BUT I’m so far from being “perfect”… And definitely NOT the “most beautiful woman” you’ve ever seen! LOL! And I’m not yet taking my master’s.. I’ll be taking it in September. 😀


I tagged her:

she wrote: I remember when we were on a bus going somewhere… I was sitting beside Jayson and you were sitting right next to the other Dara (How is he?? The guy who studied law…) and you told us you had been to the Philippines… to Parañaque to be exact, and some parts of Metro Manila I believe… And then you played back a duet by Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales from your phone which Jayson and I had never heard before… Remember??? Hehe!

Me: Yeah absolutely I remember that. it’s actually our first conversation that ever took place.oh yeah other Dara I dun no abt him.yeah u got a good memory June 🙂 and that time you gave me one piece of small cake and we talked about your face, and I said dun look like truly Pinoy.hahahah !:)

It is nice to revise our memory and can be fun as well !Ha hahaha:)
She replied: Oh I don’t remember the cake part! Hahaha! =D

She wrote: I think you have a great passion for life and you just can’t hold it in.. You can’t contain it so you share what you know about life to as many people as possible through your blogs… You are a people person… always trying to connect with those who happen to cross your path. 😀
I replied: June: wow, you really know me. I’m Impressed with Your words here. Yeah I like to share! 😀 Happiness always looks small when we hold it in our hands but when we learn to share it, we realize how big and precious it is ! I don’t think I am really a people person. Miss you, take care, June 🙂
From Your Secret Admirer!
PS: Don’t Feel Embarrassed by my words here, ok 😀
I replied again: you are really an understanding person! 😀 you have many talented. That’s amazing. Any other hidden talents I should know about?

The story of my life

I am so proud of my parents. Because of them, I have been able to live the life I want to.

There’s a lot to live for in this life.

This is what I’ve done with my life so far. These were stories that really gave me an insight as to who that I was and what made me the person that I presently am.

The story of my life! 🙂

This topic is dedicated to my lovely parents and friends. Thank you so much for everything that my parents and friends have done for me. Thanks for being such a wonderful parents for me. I have been taught and energised, and they have touched my heart. I’m proud of that. Thanks to my parents who have done many good things to me and have added value to me. I gratitude and appreciate my parents. I would like to show my gratitude and appreciate towards my parents, who forebear pain and discomfort in bringing me up to adulthood. I will always be indebted to them.

This topic is also dedicated to everyone that I know. Thank you so much for everything that you guys have done for me. It is my honor to know you guys. With lots of love and hopes to a long lasting friendship to those that value my friendship. You are in my mind and in my heart. I’m Glad to have you! Just wanted to remind you how special you are!. You guys are one of the best gifts that ever happened to my life. I’m proud of that.

What I’ve been writing here, I am not bragging or anything.

Life is wonderful! 🙂 Why? there are so many reasons that I and you can think of that makes our life wonderful. For me I am so blessed to have my lovely parents and I’m so grateful for the family and so many friends that love me and care about.

Living the inspired life means living with purpose, meaning, and intentionality. It means living out our callings. It means choosing to LIVE and not just be carried along by the circumstances of life. I Live the Inspired Life- I pray you’ll be inspired, too!

“Living the inspired life involves appreciating the little things in life, like stopping what you were doing to smell a pretty flower or noticing the beautiful blue sky. It’s taking time to show the people in your life that you love them. It’s choosing to take risks and moving forward without fear. It’s the way to live – full of freedom and joy.”

When I have decided to do something, I put my all into it. It’s a valuable piece of work for me, the time and thought I spent to make this video with a romantic song. My hope is that my video clip, after the many hours that I’ve put into it, will reminds me of everyone that I know and keep them in my memory. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you!

My life is more than a one man show! The people around me, parents, siblings, grandparents, friends etc all have played a role in my life’s story. My interactions with them and how they had influence on my life. What I’ve learned, heard, seen, done, experienced etc .

I really don’t know how to express myself. Well, I’m nobody! But you have no idea what I am capable of! You know who you’re dealing with. About to let you know. Heheeheehee 🙂 just kidding. I just act tough and that’s how I got through everything 🙂

If you bring out the very worst in me, you will see one of the craziest men you’ve ever met. This time I’m serious. The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. That is why I always keep these good saying in my mind “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow.” and ” When anger rises think of the consequences.” I am talkative if you like my talk. I think I am a man who respects for almost everyone. Some people don’t respect me and I don’t respect them back I don’t care who they are. Opps, I am a bit outspoken. Sorry if I’m being too direct. I apologize for any offences caused by my words.

I thought I needed to know what it was like out there, in a real world. So I went out there and I lived it. My easy-going nature accepts more people into my life, but I choose to hang out with easy-going and understanding people only. Some friends are not easy to be their friends and some people are bad for my life! I don’t belong to difficult people world, and they don’t belong to mine.

I think I was born in the wrong body because the way I think and behave is like Western people. But it doesn’t mean I don’t proud of my parents. I am most proud of my♥parents and I’m so proud to be Cambodian★
My life is more than a one man show! The people around me, parents, siblings, grandparents, friends etc all have played a role in my life’s story. My interactions with them and how they had influence on my life. What I’ve learned, heard, seen, done, experienced etc.
Life is an ice cream, enjoy it before it melts!Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them!

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. :
Life is a great teacher.
In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.


Thanks to All Those That Appreciate a chapter of my life story. 🙂

Disadvantages of Gambling

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 12:23 am

Gambling is addictive and can potentially ruin you. A lot of people gamble for fun, entertainment and for intellectual pursuit. However, if you think that gambling is a road to riches or that it can dig you out of difficult financial situation then I strongly recommend that you stop immediately. You are not in control. Because of the way the gambling markets operate you are not likely to succeed. Unfortunately in my time I have witnessed many people who have gambled to escape a difficult situation only to fail and dig themselves in a much deeper hole. Find something you can earn money at and work hard at it. Do not leave your future in the lap of the gods especially if those gods are bookmakers.

Gambling is a mode of entertainment that makes use of money as a tool for betting. Though it provides fun and excitement, excessive gambling may become risky,

Addiction Profile

Gambling addiction is a severe trouble.  It is well know that men are more probable to become addicted than women, that the appeal of gambling is superior for low income people than those of above average income.

Obsessive gamblers will bet until nothing is left:  savings, family assets, and personal belongings whatever thing of value that may be pawned, sold or borrowed against.  They will have a loan from co workers,  family and friends, but will hardly ever admit it is for gambling.  They may take personal loans, write bad checks and in the end reach and pass the point of bankruptcy. In anxiety, obsessive gamblers may panic and time and again will turn to illegal activities to bear their addiction.

Harm to Families

Gamblers are to a great extent more likely to be violent with their spouses and maltreat their children.  Children of these gamblers in general do worse in school and have a suicide rate two times that of their classmates. The suicide rates for problem gamblers are considerably higher than it is for the common population. Every one out of five tries suicide, a higher rate than for alcoholism or drug addiction.

We need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.

what’s done cannot be UNDONE.

Sometimes you don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

Taking good care of your life!

I just called to say...Take Care! 😀

I’m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care.

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. Life is a great teacher! There’s a lot to live for in this life. Life is an ice cream, enjoy it before it  melts! Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I don’t want to miss anything good in my youth.

When I hurt myself from drinking too much alcohol, I realized that I didn’t know how to take care myself. And then I came up with the ideas to write about taking care of life.

The thing I♥love♥about writing a blog is that it allows me to talk to many people I will never personally meet.
I had a passion to add value to what people have taught me and energized me to write. I am not trying to be pathetic here. I’m rather fond of writing. I actually regard it as fun. I feel awesome when I am writing something from my  experiences. I’ve made a lot mistakes in my life but I’ve learned from them, lesson learned. There’s more to learn. Don’t copy my bad actions. what’s done cannot be UNDONE.

My closest friend's family. My SBFF= Super Best Friend Forever. 18.03.2011

My easy-going nature accepts more people into my life, but I choose to hang out with easy-going and understanding people only. Some friends are not easy to be their friends and some people are bad for my life! I don’t belong to difficult people world, and they don’t belong to mine.

Two people hang out together, the good person and the bad person. If the good person has more influence, the bad person will become the good person, if not, the good person will become the bad person. Some people are bad for your life! Sometimes you don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

I always say the words take care of yourself to my friends. I just realized that words mean be careful, don’t get into trouble, take good care of myself. It basically means to eat healthy, and live healthily so I don’ t get sick from neglecting my needs or health. And also the obvious things like not to do anything potentially dangerous. I used to drink alcohol a lot and I could not sleep at regular time and I thought I am a man, it was ok. Right now I know it is not about proving myself a man, it is about taking good care of myself. If I am not taking care of my health, I will hurt myself. From now on I will take good care of myself.

Today I’ve learned a very important lesson. Someone told me that “One woman is dead because of heart attack and she was too tired from travel without having asleep. She was a bit overweight. Who knows what we called khol kor in English? I was so sorry to hear that. This made me think I should relax when I am tired. 31.12.2011

I start to love my health! 🙂 Before, I watched 3 movies a day but now only one movie. No need to
rush! Movies can wait me. It is bad for my eyes when I watch too much. When I was younger, I was wild and extreme. I could drink one liter of whiskey in a few hours. I could talk on the phone for 8 hours per day for a few months (This could damage my brain). I didn’t fall asleep for a few days. I needed to test myself, mentally and physically! 🙂 What I did, was not the quality of life. Some people that I hang out with, they are also extreme! 🙂

 Too much of something is bad. Hence, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Like most things, moderation is the key. Finding the balance is very important for me. I must bear this in mind at all times because I have an addictive personality.

I★♥love to drink alcohol on special occasions. But I'm not an Alcoholic! I know drinking alcohol is self-destruction. But I know my limits.

Now I don’t want to compete in drinking battle. I will lose for sure, but I win for my health. 🙂

Learn how to do for others more than you do for yourself. With that said; but, if you didn’t know, or didn’t care about doing something special for yourself once in a while, you then wouldn’t know how to, or what to do for others, either. 🙂

 My brother called me ”The Carabao” អ្នកតស៊ូដ៏យ៉ាប់យឿន( that means I am tough because sometimes I had party until morning and I was able to go to school or sometimes without sleep I still can drive to other cities!

Before, I was a dare-devil when I got drunk and sad, I drove very fast, it could get me killed and others too, without realizing the value of life. That was the stupidest thing I did. ហេងដែរឆ្លងផុត!!! Now, no more. One life is connected to many hearts. When you have a problem or lose your life, it can damage the heart of your friends, loved one, relatives and especially your parents.
we need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.

Taking good care of your life, my friends! 🙂

If it RAINS, remain indoors during first 24 hours

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 2:15 pm

I read this useful information and felt it was worthy to add to this page.

Statement from WHO concerning rumours of radiation spread from Japanese nuclear facilities

 

Rumours have been circulating by text messaging and other means of a radiation cloud spreading across Asia and beyond from the damaged nuclear facilities in Japan.

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) would like to assure governments and members of the public that there is no evidence at this time of any significant international spread from the nuclear site.

 

Governments and members of the public are encouraged to take steps to halt these rumours, which are harmful to public morale.


Someone wrote: The news about the rain is spam. I think we can believe in the news, we have nothing to lose! 😀

That night I woke up at 3 AM and I heard ship horn sound, I thought that would be Peace Boat, I felt excited and I opened the window to see her but I saw nothing. I opened that window a few times when I heard that sound and then I went back to sleep. Later, I found out that port authority allows cruise ship to embark at this port only after 6 AM.

My Philosophical Way Of Life

Not a day goes by I don’t think about her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Dy Dara, the first man from Cambodia, to sail around the world” How cool is that? In 2020, I will sell one piece of my lands to join PB. Those who risk nothing, do nothing; have nothing & become nothing. It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream that nobody sees but me.

Nothing quite excites the emotions when it comes to sailing around the globe.

Today, 14th March 2011, is the 1th anniversary of my blog.

Happy 1th Birthday to this! 😀

This is year #2! It’s been 1 year since I once sat down and thought “sharing interesting and useful topics and my life story.” 🙂 Blog Stats = 9,686 hits For the first year! 😀 I am so happy with this number. Super Excited! 😀 With my blog originally intended for me to just share my thoughts of what I’ve recently read, A place where I talk about my life and share interesting and useful topics, it’s grown into something much more. Because of my blog I’ve learned a lot things about human behavior and things happen for a reason. Because of my writing and sharing, I get many compliments. To some people, it’s just words on a piece of screen. But it’s more than just words. To me it means a lot. It’s awesome to feel appreciated!:) Have You Ever Wondered Why people act the way they do or you behave as you behave? Everyone behaves the way that they do because they are acting through a filter of the rocks (values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations) that they carry around. Click here to see this interesting topic @ https://dydara.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/self-awareness-is-the-key-to-change-and-lasting-happiness/

Travelling is the only time I feel alive! :DI have a great passion for life! :)

There are a lot of problems with living a life designed to fit everyone else’s expectations of you, though. The top three, as I see it, are: .You can’t please everyone .Their expectations may be based on a narrow, inaccurate view of you .Your values could be wildly different from theirs. This is the first topic for the writing part of my second year of blogging as a hobby. Would love to hear your thoughts about it in the comments. :) Thanks! Not a day goes by I don’t think about you, Peace boat.

I wonder about how many Cambodian people have sailed around the world. If I can’t be the first person from Cambodia. At least I could be in that club one day. That’s my life ambition. It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream nobody sees but you. Sometimes hope is all you have got. I say this to myself “In 10 years, I’ll have enough money to take the trip of a lifetime.” 09.10.2011

This is a unique opportunity to fulfill my sense of adventure and at the same time make a meaningful contribution to the world. 🙂

I heard about Peace boat on 30.01.2011, I want to join this awesome program. This is just a dream. Maybe the dream is what it’s all about, one of the important words for me. I was a little boy with a little dream that came true, not so little, by the way. The desire to pursue my interests and dreams. I wish one day my dream will come true! 😀 What I am about to say sounds so crazy. I would choose Peace boat over my marriage life. Peace boat, sail around the world for 3 months! I am sick all the time and I thought if I had cancer or any diseases which need a lot of money to cure it I don’t need that I would use that money to achieve my dying wish “Peace Boat” I would not die with eyes open. My Dream: I would like to live in as many as different countries as possible. I should be practical, find a girl and be nice to her, take over my Parents’ business, get married and have lots of kids. heeheeh 😀

(Just undated) I have this crazy idea “When I get married my parents will give me something, if I could trade that something for participating in Peace boat, I would and I would not regret about it. I choose Peace boat over marriage. Peace boat, sail around the world for 3 months! 🙂 02.05.2011

I really want to promise myself this “I have to to join Peace boat before I tie the knot.” But naz I can’t promise that, what if this program is no longer available or I met the girl who can change my mind.

“He’d trained his entire life for one purpose, to be the greatest swordsman in the history of mankind. He’d just achieved his life ambition.” From The Warrior’s Way movie,  the words is so impressive. I can relate these words to this topic “I want to spend 10 years for saving money for this trip and to join it is my life ambition.” 

Charles Spezzano speaks to the value of time. He says that people don’t pay for things with money; they pay for them with time. If you say to yourself, “In five years, I’ll have enough money to take the trip of a lifetime, then what you are really saying is that the trip will cost you five years — one-twelfth of your adult life. “The phrase spending your time is not a metaphor, “said Spezzano. “It’s how life works.”

I would say this when I start the trip “It’s like I’ve been living my whole life for this moment.” I would take a video and say “This is where I start my trip! :)” and when I get back here I would make another video and say “This is where my journey end.”

For some travel’s a dream that comes true once a year for the annual vacation. Often people yearn of a greater travel adventure like a year in dream places or selling everything and bumming off to that places. Maybe I am one of those people. I am packing for the trip of my lifetime. I hope one day I can write this for real. I say to myself: “In 9 years (2020), if I cannot save enough money to take the trip of a lifetime I would sell one of my homes or lands to make it happen (On one condition of I am still single). It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream nobody sees but me. I think I’d rather have the amazing life with a tragic end. Because what’s life without risks? I wouldn’t want to hold back or not do amazing things just because of what might happen. 04.11.2011  Don’t be a person who wants so much without making any sacrifices! 

No matter what happenslife still goes on. You must take life as it comes. Sometimes hope is all you have got.

Not a day goes by I don’t think about two people and two journeys! The two people are my ex-lover and the girl of my dreams. And the journeys are SSEAYP and peace boat, the journey in my dreams. The ex-lover and SSEAYP are the past which can not come back, but you know, in life, the first act, always exciting. The girl of my dreams and the journey in my dreams are just the dreams. But these dreams give me smile and hope! 🙂 03.05.2011

See the world with your own eyes! 😀

I used to participate in Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Program. Things happen that lead to other things. And I hope this is one of them. 😀

Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. Peace Boat seeks to create awareness and action based on effecting positive social and political change in the world. We pursue this through the organization of global educational programmes, responsible travel, cooperative projects and advocacy activities. These activities are carried out on a partnership basis with other civil society organizations and communities in Japan, Northeast Asia, and around the world. Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea, and in the ports that we visit. Activities based in Japan and Northeast Asia are carried out from our seven Peace Centers in Japan.

Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. Three Global Voyages and one short Asian regional voyage are usually organized each year. The three-month Global Voyages are each joined by around 800 participants and visit between 15-20 countries. Peace Boat’s 72nd Global Peace Voyage departed from Yokohama on January 23 , 2011 and will visit 19 ports in 17 countries around the world, through the Pacific, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The voyage will return to Japan 86 days after its departure, on April 18, 2011.

Tsunami hits Japan (11 March 2011) made me want to know where Peace boat was, according to voyage itenerary, she was at Casablanca, Morocco.

Look at the map, it shows the Earth is round, travelling eastward around the globe. Start from Japan travel eastward to Peru and continue the trip until it will return to Japan. ! 😀

  • It is best to sail from east to west to have the wind at your back.

Long A trip from one Pole to the other, and back again on the other side, would technically be a circumnavigation. Circumnavigation to be a passage of at least 21,600 nautical miles (40,000 km) in length which crosses the equator, crosses every meridian and finishes in the same port as it starts. A meridian (or line of longitude) is the half of an imaginary great circle on the Earth’s surface, terminated by the North Pole and the South Pole, connecting points of equal longitude. The position of a point along the meridian is given by its latitude. Each meridian is perpendicular to all circles of latitude. Each is also the same size, being half of a great circle on the Earth’s surface and therefore measuring 20,003.93 km (12,429.9 miles). I just realized about this 1 Nautical mile = 1.852 kilometer 1 Mile = 1.60934 kilometer

hose

From this scene I can understand about “high-pressure water hoses”

This news does not make me give up my biggest dream. Sometime during the week between 3 and 9 May 2010, Peace Boat came under attack by Somali pirates while off the coast of Yemen. The ship was attacked by grenades, but managed to avoid being boarded by adopting zig-zag manoeuvres and blasting the pirates with high-pressure water hoses. Reportedly the pirates were subsequently apprehended by NATO forces. Can you believe that in the past 4 years, the Peace Boat has been attacked twice by pirates in this area near Somalia. Apparently once the PB was fired at by the pirates, but the captain veered at full speed in the other direction and got away. Another time the PB was surrounded by about 20 small pirate boats, and they had to get a warship from another country to rescue the boat!! horn of Africa PB must pass horn of Africa (Somali pirates are always here) in order to complete a trip of sailing around the world. This is the most dangerous part of the trip.

good-things-come-to-those-who-wait    Keep on waiting and believing – and never give up – and the best things will come to you!

In two years (2012 and 2013), I saw two opportunities that allowed me to join PB but I did not take it. I want to spend 9 years for waiting for this journey. I’ve known PB since 2011 so in 2020 I will join this trip. If you get something easily, you would not know its value.

a small victory
