Here's some believes of the hoteliers:
Every single hotel, there shall be at least a permanent room whichshould be left vacant at all times. No matter how full the hotel is,they are not to sell that room(s) to any guest.It was said that special room was "reserved" for those "special visitors".
So, if you plan to stay in some hotel, always book in advance.Try to avoid walk in. If the receptionist told you there's no more room available, do not insist one anymore or try to bribe them to give you a room. If you do that, most of the time the room you have will be that "special room".Sometimes those "special visitors" might go to other rooms also, so here's some tips on how to protect yourself:
- Before entering your room, always knock on the door first, even if you know the room is vacant. This is to tell them that your coming into the room, and let them know to make way for you.
- After you enter the room, if you felt very cold suddenly and have "chicken spore", leave the room quietly immediately and go to reception to request to change room. Most of the time the receptionist will understand what's happening.
- After you enter the room, immediately switch on all of the lights, and open the curtain to let the sun light in.
- Before you go to bed, arrange your shoes so that one of them is upside down. Some say this is representing yin& yang to protect you while you're asleep.
- Always leave at least a lamp on while you're sleeping, preferably the toilet's lamp.
- If you're staying alone and they have give you a twin bed, do not sleep with the other bed vacant, try to put your things like luggage on the other bed before you sleep and if your sleeping on a queen size bed, always sleep in the middle...and dont not by sleeping on either side as this means inviting them to sleep next to you... you dont want to wake up in the middle of the night to find out there are something sleeping next to you right ?
Another tip to protect yourself....
When you enter your hotel room, look for the Bible. Most hotel place the Bible inside a drawer. However, if upon entering, you see the Bible on the table, DON'T STAY IN THAT ROOM! It means "special visitors" are there.
If you see the Bible opened up on the table, LEAVE THAT ROOM IMMEDIATELY and request a change of room!!! It means the "special visitor" is really creating trouble in that room!!And here's some tips on protecting yourself in the cinema...
Do not attend the first screening of any movies in the cinema.By the first screening, I mean the first time the movie is shown in that particular cinema. Reason? The first screening is meant for the "special visitors".However, if you insist on going, then sit somewhere in the middle. The first and last rows are reserved for "them" !!!

VivoCity, Singapore's latest and largest mall at 1.5 million sq ft, is likely to remain the 'Most Humungous Mall' on the island for at least a decade, but Malaysians may not be all that impressed.
THERE was a time when a spade was called a spade, and a place where people shopped was called a "shopping centre". How times have changed!
First it became a "complex", then evolved into a "park", a "mall", and a "plaza", before developers with grandiose schemes started naming them "city", as in Ngee Ann City. As for Singapore's latest, VivoCity, it bills itself as "Singapore's largest multi-experiential retail and lifestyle destination" no less!
A "Destination", mind you, as if it were a capital city or state. I can just see it: Any day now, there will be a pompous shopping centre named "Universe". Already VivoCity's food court is pretentiously called Food Republic.
The RM970mil shopping centre, with over 300 retailers, outdoor amphitheatre, 20,000 sq ft open plaza, 300m harbour-front promenade, and dozens of art installations, promises a lot but fails to rock.
After so much hype, I expect at least an ice skating rink, an aviary, a water world theme park, a botanical garden, a miniature zoo, fountains, 100m waterfalls, animated dinosaurs, perhaps even an indoor ski resort replete with artificial snow like Dubai's Mall of the Emirates.
I recall malls in Seoul and Tokyo that incorporate rail rides artfully linking the various floors. One massive complex in Seoul even had a roller-coaster ride inside the podium, which eventually had to be taken out by the authorities as the screams got on the nerves of other shoppers and the vibrations threatened the structure of the building!
So I try to look suitably impressed when Wendy Low, general manager of VivoCity, rattles off the new shopping centre's prime attractions. Does VivoCity have an amusement park like Kuala Lumpur's Berjaya Times Square? Or an interactive science centre like the Petronas Sains or Aquaria at KLCC? Or a rooftop sports centre like the one in 1-Utama Shopping Centre in Petaling Jaya?
Singapore is known for setting trends, so I hold my breath in anticipation.
First comes the obligatory sales pitch.
"VivoCity is a one-stop retail, entertainment and lifestyle destination that will constantly surprise and stimulate visitors with its vibrant mix of unique, ever-evolving, new-to-market retail experience and entertainment brands and concepts. VivoCity is derived from 'vivacity', i.e. 'vivacious' so it's a place bubbling with energy and vitality.
"And the main stars are?"
Golden Village has opened Singapore's biggest multiplex with 15 screens and 2,172 seats, including a 602-seat cinema with a 22.4m screen, which is one of the largest in Asia. Tangs also has its second store here with 86,000 sq ft, focusing on fashion and lifestyle products. The 115,000 sq ft Dairy Farm offers the biggest Giant Hypermarket, Guardian Health & Beauty Store, and Cold Storage for health and organic foodstuffs," beams Wendy Ong.
In other words, a huge cinema, a department store and two supermarkets are the main draws!
A complex complex
Unlike Suria KLCC where you can stroll from one end to another on a floor-by-floor basis and not get disoriented, VivoCity seems a tad complex in its layout - to the extent I got lost thrice, which is a record for a world-class mall-trawler like me.
Famous Japanese architect Toyo Ito designed VivoCity to stand out, but there is something to be said for easy layouts and instant bird's eye view of the shops. Ito's theme for VivoCity is "surfing" in honour of the harbour-front location. This makes it even more puzzling why there are no marine parks with frolicking dolphins, swimming pools or manmade surfing lagoons here.
The only concessions to water are the sky-roof play pools and the courtyard with interactive water features: pleasant but nothing to write home about.
The warren of shops make for exciting discoveries - but only if you are a 20-year-old gym-fit bunny. I see many 40- and 50-somethings searching for limited public seats, with some even resorting to occupying taxi stands. The food and drinks outlets do a roaring trade for this reason, perhaps.
VivoCity is billed as a must-visit as it is away from Orchard Road, Singapore's main shopping paradise. Once you have traipsed up and down Orchard Road, VivoCity is the next logical stop. With familiar labels like Zara, Nautica, Bebe, Ted Baker, Esprit, Naf Naf, Pumpkin Patch, Mango, Osim, Bossini, Brooks Brothers, Lee Hwa Jewellery, Thirtysevendegrees, NIKE by Bird and the like, it is a mid-market place.
There are no Vuitton, Dior, Fendi or Gucci within 10km. However, those with cash to burn can still do so at Sincere Fine Watches and a slew of jewellery shops.
VivoCity set a record for its opening weekend when over 325,000 thronged the premises in two days. "
Some 168,000 visited on Saturday and another 157,000 on Sunday!" says Low proudly. This was beyond all expectations! Around 93% of space had been let out by opening day, which was also beyond expectations. And 20% of retailers are hitting Singapore's shores for the first time. These include Adidas Original Store, GAP, Pull & Bear, and Spain2Dream."
The store that stands out from the herd is Tangs.
Its Dressing Room section, offering ladies' lingerie and intimate underwear, is the talk of the town. It's not massive, like the one at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, but the mannequins locked inside S&M cages or reclining provocatively atop display shelves follow the Parisian store's format and reek of Moulin Rouge.
Each of the three changing rooms has a name: Pin-Up Girl, Luxe Deluxe, and, the most scandalous of all, Queen of Hearts, which comes replete with mirrored walls and a podium with a pole right in the middle!"
This is the most popular, and there is usually a queue! A girl can try on the intimate apparel and indulge in a bit of pole dancing in the privacy of the changing room, alone with no one watching! Just for the fun of it!" grins Elizabeth Kwan, Tangs' visual merchandising manager. "
Just a bit of harmless fantasy and role acting!" she hastens to add.
Then there is PlayLab, Tangs' fashion station for men and women. With music blaring from speakers and boom boxes, it's more disco than boutique, and that's exactly what the 20-somethings want. FJ Benjamin, the franchisee for GAP, was forced to open its first store two days earlier to cope with demands. Sales reportedly topped S$50,000 (RM116,000) in one day!
VivoCity is the centrepiece of the redeveloped, 24-hectare HarbourFront project, which includes HarbourFront Towers, Sentosa Cove, HarbourFront Centre, and the multi-entertainment hub across the road called St James Power Station.
St James is not a former church but a former power station and is one of the biggest discos in South-East Asia.
Focus of the Day:I develop my intuition and learn to think for myself.
It doesn't benefit anyone for you to be less than you are. To not use your intuition is to be less than you are. To not know and live by your own truths is being less than you are. To ignore your energy body is being less than you are.
We all need the help and guidance of others. But never should you follow the advice of others when it means to ignore your own inner guidance. There are times when teachers are wrong. Sometimes a friend's advice is misguided. Clergymen and others in positions of trust or authority can abuse their power. We need to listen to our inner guidance while we consider the advice and direction of others.
When our inner voice says "No" or "Think about it first," we must listen to it, and find out what it is trying to tell us. As you develop the intuition that is inside of you and learn to think more for yourself, you can go out into the world more aware, confident, and strong.

A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call. She answered, 'Public Utilities Board.' There was silence. She repeated, 'PUB.' There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she heard a lady's voice, 'Oh, so this is PUB. Sorry, I got the number from my Husband's pocket but I do not know whose number it is.
' Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just 'hello' instead of 'PUB'.
NO POINTING FINGERS
A man asked his father-in-law, 'Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?'
The father-in-law answered in a smile, 'Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you.
'We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point the finger at. This is the start of a war. We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves. If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too.
CREATING PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS?
A person visited the government matchmaker for marriage, SDU, and requested 'I am looking for a spouse. Please help me to find a suitable one.'
The SDU officer said, 'Your requirements, please.'
'Oh, good looking, polite, humorous, sporty, knowledgeable, good in singing and dancing. Willing to accompany me the whole day at home during my leisure hour, if I don't go out. Telling me interesting stories when I need companion for conversation and be silent when I want to rest.'
The officer listened carefully and replied, 'I understand you need television.'
There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wife and a deaf husband, because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship. Unfortunately, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.
Many relationships fail because one party tries to overpower another, or demands too much. People in love tend to think that love will conquer all and their spouses will change the bad habits after marriage. Actually, this is not the case. There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that 'It is easier to reshape a mountain or a river than a person's character.' It is not easy to change. Thus, having high expectation on changing the spouse character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness. It would be less painful to change ourselves and lower our expectations..
There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that 'A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation.' Many relationships break off because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other, we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other party.
A friend and her millionaire husband visited their construction site. A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, 'Hi, Emily! Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school.' On the way home, her millionaire husband teased her, 'Luckily you married me. Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker.'
She answered,'You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he will be the millionaire and not you.'
Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It's like a broken egg cannot be reversed.
Different people have different perception. One man's meat could be another man's poison.
A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented, 'Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey? 'Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them.
Later, an old man saw it and commented, 'The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?' Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.
Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, 'How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman.' The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey.
Then, they met a young man. He commented, 'Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you.' Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders. It seems to be the only choice left.
Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future. Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear..
This is a true story which happened in the States.
A man came out of his home to admire his new truck.. To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the truck. The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment. When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital.
Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, he finally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands. When the boy woke up from the surgery and saw his bandaged stubs, he innocently said, 'Daddy, I'm sorry about your truck.' Then he asked, 'but when are my fingers going to grow back?'
The father went home and committed suicide. Think about this story the next time someone steps on your feet or you wish to take revenge. Think first before you lose your patience with someone you love. Trucks can be repaired... Broken bones and hurt feelings often can't. Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the performance. We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge. People make mistakes! We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.
'Good Life starts only when you stop wanting a better One'
' Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away '
An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks one of his new students to stand and.....
Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is God good?
Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then?
(Student is silent.)
Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?
Prof: Is Satan good?
Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From... God...
Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Prof: So who created evil?
(Student does not answer.)
Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Prof: So, who created them?
(Student has no answer.)
Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.
Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Student: No sir. There isn't.
(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light.....But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue thereis life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from monkeys?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at workand cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain,felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it sir... The link between man & God is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive. .
WANT TO KNOW WHO THAT STUDENT WAS?. . . . . . . . . . . .
The student was ...
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the current President of India andthis is a true story.
