Promise Yourself

"Promise Yourself  
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. 
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. 
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you." 

- Christian D. Larson


Have you infringed Copyright?

It has been a while since my last post. It is mostly because of the Copyright knowledge that I have learned from Intellectual Property Law this semester made me realized how many copyrights I have infringed previously =/

Two weeks ago I had an offer by the Tokyo publisher to publish one of my article in their English workbook. The workbook mainly used for the English learner in the language class. It was my great honour to receive such surprising offer but I have rejected twice because the work is not written by me entirely. I love to edit and combine various articles into one piece but this action has exposed to potential infringing copyright of others.

So, I am sure all of you have heard of copyright. But do you really know the exact meaning of copyright in our daily lives? Copyright protects the works of authors and artists to ensure their works are not unlawfully reproduced, distributed, performed, or acts that would deprive them of revenue and discourage further creative work. 

There are too many examples of copyright infringement. 

  • The playing of Lady Gaga songs in the night market or Pasar Malam (without license) has infringe the copyright. 
  • The lecture notes came mainly from wikipedia or other books-infringe (c). 
  • I sing Jay Chou's latest song in a video clip and post it in YouTube also infringe (c). 
  • The selling of LV, Gucci, Burberry bags in Petaling Street-Obvious act of infringement!! (Yet our "beloved" prime minister is proud of it by introducing tourism Malaysia zzz) 
  • We used to photostat the text books in photostat shop-definitely infringe (c), I use the photos and some good articles in the web-I ALWAYS INFRINGE COPYRIGHT FTW!!

Sometimes I think Copyright is very troublesome. This will prevents many new creative works from other people! Also, in the case you want to cite sources of the information, but usually  there are more than thousands of same information appearing in the net until I don't know who is the real (c) owner =/

By the way there are some useful tips to avoid the (c) infringement obligations in writing a blog. The best safest method is using your own language, photos and everything by yourself! This you are the lawful (c) owner to prove the originality of your work. 

There are some defense available if you had infringed the (c). The fair dealings is a defense including the private study and non profit research of the information. reporting a current events such as Prince William wedding, criticism or review of latest iPhone 5, Parody and Acknowledgement. Citing an acknowledgement is necessary when you take the informations from others but it is not an absolute defense.

So have you infringed the (c)? Lets stop infringing and expand our full creativity today!



Life is like a Ferris Wheel, you are neither down too long nor high on top forever. "What goes around, comes around" The Ups and Downs, Hoping On and Off, you get a bit dizzy too ;p 

So, enjoy the challenging part when you are down because the awesome part is coming very soon! 

传说,摩天轮的每一个盒子里都装满了幸福, 幸福有多高,摩天轮就有多高。 



人生本是一架不落的天平,平衡自我,平衡你的人生 .摩天轮的力量就是能化悲壮为欢歌,成就你美丽的花环.当一不小心转到仇恨那一个盒子时,千万不要被其泯灭心智.这时就需要学会感恩来减少仇恨。要知道,感恩的心是维系温暖的太阳,它可以让仇恨的坚冰融化,让博爱的种子在每个人的心中生根发芽。伟人林肯少年时因为家境贫寒而不得不受人资助才能完成自己的学业。当他能够自食其力的时候,他首先想到的是报答恩人。一位屡次与林肯作对的政敌获罪时节,林肯并没有想到要趁机报复他,而是宽大地处理了他。在林肯心中并没有仇恨,有的只是国家大事而产生的不同意见。滴水之恩,当涌泉相报;对待仇敌,更要相逢一笑泯恩仇。 




每当我坐摩天轮都会感触很深。人生不必太着急,就像找男女朋友,慢慢地找,慢慢地转,总会转到你心中的幸福乐园!  因为人生有高潮也有低潮。在高潮时千万别骄傲,低潮时更不能洩气,要耐心善心恒心和努力去克服困难,创造美丽幸福的乐园!我也是经历过很多失败然后站起来!加油吧!为我们精彩人生奋斗吧!我一直会在你们背后为你们祈祷,支持你们!
