Stalking My Wife

The midnight before my wife's flight to America, she collected 
all the food leftovers from her office. They have weekly
meetings where much uneaten food were thrown away! Kanasai!
So she rounded up my visiting friend & family to feed the beggars.
It was an eye opener to their 2 young kids to feed the hungry
beggars with delicious warm food & bottles of mineral water.
They could see how sad & pitiful 
to become homeless & lonely.



We headed to Pudu's area again where it's the haven for the
poor homeless beggars who slept under the shops and flyovers.
You can find dozens of them sleeping openly but I woke them
all up as I knew that they were hungry and probably
had not eaten for days. They woke up and ate right away!
The above handicapped uncle was happy and chatted
non stop! 
"Hey, come again with more food!"
Uncle is calling all bloggers & readers to care for them.




You You & Woei Woei are 2 angels.



*********


My wifey flew off the next day and my friend's whole
family tagged along to the see the whole KLIA terminal.
The young boy taught me to install the Flight Tracking
apps into my phone and it was so interesting.
I am such an uncle and didn;t know
how to track the planes! 
Smart boy You-You.




Many hours later, I could track my wifey's United Airlines leaving
Hong Kong and flew out of China and North Russia! 
Amazing!
Why was her "Red Plane" not flying across 
the Pacific Ocean as it looked shorter? 
Eventually I found the answer myself! 
Simple, the earth spins so the plane should fly
upwards and downwards to save time.





Some 15 hours later the "Red Plane" was flying across
the Artic Ocean and passed through Canada.
Look at the thousands of planes jamming
New York's John F Kennedy airport!
This clearly shows how  
"The Humans Are
Trading With Each Other's Karma Everyday"
just like the aeroplanes!





Yours truly and 2 Japanese college friends in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
That was some 2 decades ago and both Maki Yamada &
Junko Ueda have married Americans. They will play hosts
to show wifey the fabulous city where I lived around the
Carnegie Mellon University. So coincidence, she will be
having 2 weeks of meetings & training at CMU.
Deja Vue.

  2. Anay and Letchumi are so kind to be helping the homeless people.

    I only ever contribute by tagging along groups who regularly helps out like Our Touch Community.

    There are friends who also like you who are actively helping out, with Street Feeders KL program and similar.

    Bravo to both of you.

    We sure need more emphatic people in the community.

    1. You help homeless cats so often and we just feed homeless people sometimes only. Both also sama-sama hati kesian. Just hope this post will encourage the other bloggers not to ignore the less privileged.

  8. woohoo!!! Anay is freed for the next couple of weeks and he can go partay every night while Letchumy is in the US!!!

    so kind of Letchumy to collect the leftover food and then bring them to the hungry homeless.. this is such an act of The Goddess of Mercy!! by doing this, you are not only doing good to the homeless, but also yourself and most importantly those who had left behind the food!! that saves them good credit.. the two youngsters who followed must be a little skeptical at first I guess, but after seeing what was done, they were sure impressed and moved..

    fuyoh!! Uncle SK also impressed by that apps dei, what's the name of the apps?? I also want to download that.. it's really impressive that the apps is able to track all the planes flying around the globe!! what a genius invention..

    and yes, your explanation that planes don't fly straight lines actually makes sense.. because the earth is not flat and it spins!! guess the navigation system is really important to keep the planes flying the shortest distance.. maybe Letchumy is able to do such calculations.. :p

    oh that's nice Anay arranged two friends of his to take care of Letchumy, no wonder he is not following.. did Anay show Letchumy and Maki and Junko that photo, and get the three ladies to pose exactly the same and take a photo?? that would be so much fun dei.. 30 years ago it was the husband, 30 years later it is the wife!!! priceless!!

    anyways, hope Letchumy enjoys her stay in the US and Anay enjoys his temporary "single days"~~ *wink wink* :p

  28. "The Humans Are Trading With Each Other's Karma Everyday" - is this your original own quote? I find it interesting.

    How come you did not go with your wife to USA to revisit the places you have been before?

    1. I read this quote from the Buddhism sutra texts and simplified it here. When one could understand this line well, we can accept our present fate better and decide whether to change it or not, as fate is in our own hands. Good example is how the rich deals with poor and how our superiors deals with the juniors, all depends on the individual karma. If we make merits and clear bad karma, we will be able to have a better standing anywhere.

      My wife went on this working trip with a dozen colleagues, so it would not look professional to tag along unless she goes alone.

  29. That's a very good deed you and your wife are doing. :)

    I've been involved in Kechara Soup Kitchen too, they go out Saturdays and the food is good (boatHouse, TTDI donates food to them, freshly cooked - I only knew coz I was tasked to pick up the food from them).
