I Hope.


Such a diluted word nowadays.

I hope to get an iPhone.

I hope to buy a house.

I hope to get the tickets to the football game.


Everybody hopes.

But, there is a bigger meaning to hope.

So big, to those who possessed it cannot explain.

And to those who do not have it, dies.

Hope is the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hope is the thing that keeps you alive.

Hope is knowing that better days are to come.

Hope is being sure that you are never deserted.

Hope can never be revealed its importance till the day comes when it is really needed.

Like the hope for a cure to a dying patient,

Or the hope for love to an abandoned child.

The hope for a better future to someone living on the streets,

Or the hope for life to someone who wants to die.

There is hope for every one of us.

Seek it as it is already there.

Find it and own it.

When you have hope, you can give hope.

As you get the courage in the hope you found, you can be the hope to someone else.

It is when you have hope, you know how much you needed it.

This post was inspired by this video and I was reminded of the 2nd video after writing this.

Both are my favourite. It shows a glimpse of hope at work.

O Lord, you alone are my hope. Psalm 71:5

Having hope will give you courage. Job 11:18

The Art of Eating Oreo

The art of eating Oreo.

What you need:-
Oreo - Recommended 2-3 pieces.
Enough to satisfy but leaves you with a desire for more. This makes you look forward to your next Oreo experience and makes it a delight when you do get it!

Full cream milk - right out of the fridge. No ice as it dilutes the milk and interferes the dipping process.

Glass for the milk - a shorter glass is good if you don't intend to drink much milk. You need to fill the glass all the way to the top to make it easier to dip the whole Oreo in without needing to put your hand into the glass.

The S.O.P (Standard Oreo Procedure):-
Oreo must be dipped into cold milk for just the right amount of time for the cream to get cold yet the biscuit brings a light sogginess on the outside but still crispy on the inside. Fingers must hold the Oreo at the most tip so as much surface of the Oreo can be immersed into the milk but with enough grip that it would not fall into the milk or break in the process.

Usage of other tools such as spoon, fork or chopsticks are not recommended as your fingers will not have the lingering smell of Oreo and you lose the fun of of accidentally dipping your fingers in cold milk.

It is not easy to achieve the perfect milk dipped Oreo but when you do get it...heaven!
