    Must be damn scary for the owners....esp during 7th month or Halloween.

    Creepy to come out at night for a drink of water.....might see a figure dangling from the ceiling.....
    I may not be the one living the next door, but it does feel scary to walk infront of the house, and there is no other way out.

    Currently, I am feeling a little down, and what you said, really helps alot. Ok actually my friend did that la, not you.

    How do you like to see a hand in the air inviting you in as you walk past?

    I really do not understand why you people have to always bring GOD into the problem. God was never the problem and never will be the solution. People are! God(s) are just very convenient excuses that we use for our own selfish ends and gains.

    Don't blame the government too cos, 66.6% of you voted for them!!!! You voted for them, that's what you get, comprehend? everytime you want to blame the policy changes making it tough for you or the living standards getting higher or someone else is snatching your job away, make sure you are not in the 66.6%! It's the reaping the seeds that the 66.6% sow

    That's because you have never experienced God & how He can make a world of difference in your life. I have experienced Jesus & I know He is the anchor to my soul. He directs me where i should go & provide security from hopelessness when i remain obedient to his instructions.

    When you take a step back & look at things from a macro perspective, you will know that mankind cannot survive without the presence of God. Money, power & fame can solves LOTS of your problem, but only God is BIG enough to truly fulfill you.

    Its good that you have found a religion that has given you such peace of mind and confidence to face life's challenges. While I understand you wish to share this fulfilment with us please understand that there may be some people who already have their own beliefs and may not see eye to eye. I do not think its appropriate of you to say that if someone believes in your god that he can fulfil him too as they might not want to accept your religion's teachings.

    An old Malay man urged me to call the police because he was complaining people "just" watch and never called the police. So i called the police. I guess he didn't have a mobile phone.

    I had my D80 with me, but just find it too unbearable to take the picture of a dead man who i think must have a very difficult life that he resorted to such measure to end his misery. By the way, the Block 47 is one of those flat where itz very compact one, i think govt rent out very cheaply or free to those who are in dire cases.

    I think people really need Jesus to bring them into a life of hope.
    i guess it is better to respect the dead and not to take photos. Unless u are doing your job as a policeman or a newspaper reporter... otherwise just keep a distance to respect.

    Whatever your religion or belief may be, let's pray for the poor guy who took his life today. May he find peace wherever he has moved on to.

    We all need a kinder world.

    Never the less, here or possibly there are other organizations such as "St Vincent De Paul"

    Often it is sad to realise that some people that are at a loss,

    don't realise that there are people out there for them and dedicate their life to them.

    Cheers

    P.S.

    Things don't have to get worse......... We have to get better !
    actually there are helplines for people suffering from depression, for example

    http://www.samhealth.org.sg SAMH COUNSELLING HELPLINE 1800 2837019 (Toll-Free)

    just that it's not publicised widely enough. mental health problems are often equated to insanity amongst many Singaporeans, especially the middle-age and elderly group. so people do not see the 'need' to seek help.

    Ya, you are right. People have the freewill to believe in their faith.
    I hope everyone will find peace, hope and joy in their life!

    [ps: To respect CS rules, i am refraining from posting about religious stuff from this post onwards]

    Hi,

    Thanks for biting ....






    So, I presume, Raymond, I have 2 questions for you.

    I am very curious about religious people like you. Are you are a creationist or an evolutionist? Do you believe in the science of evolution, ie we evolve from a singel cell organism --> apes --> homo sapiens? Or did you just pop out of the mud?

    I am glad that you feel fulfilled. So can I ask, when you pray, do you, first, pray for yourself and then, for the people around you? Or do you pray, for the people around you, then yourself? Do you pray, say for all people then, regardless of race, religion or creed? You pray for them, so that they will believe in what you believe, or do you pray for their goodness and well being?

    You pray, because you genuinely feel for it (and for the others) or because you need to? Do you pray because you wanted to go to heaven? Isn't that for your own selfish reason, ie because you do not want to go to hell? So at the end of the day, isn't it all about your gains and ends?

    I wish the day will come soon when every single one of the eligible voters will have a chance to decide and vote our leaders. It will be a true day for democracy of our nation, maybe it is then, to really celebrate our independence.
