Dear ,



  • eVent o de 3 weeX: Unleash Your DNA being a free (up to now) yearly 8 hour inspirational seminar organized by RAW Group, headed by Reg Athwal, who really seems to be very knowledgable, and likable too. This year had around 10 speakers, and around 500 audiences.

  • SHite o de 3 WeeX: got called to move my car as soon as reached home (20 minutes walk, in the constrution are dirt). I slipped by the slippery mud and hit my shin into a big piece of metal while going back (ouch!). All that because the attendant was in the bathroom so didn't see me to tell me that it was not allowed to park there. Whatever happened to good ol' signs eh?

  • SHite2 o de 3 WeeX: Microsoft Outlook 2007 keeps crashing. I hate it.

  • newZ o de 3 WeeX: text text MoWrOw's WrapUp Blog now triweekly!

  • Awsome Service o de 3 WeeX: Dubai RTA's Dubai Metro extremely safe, very clean and neat, very user friendy except for the refill kiosks, extremely cheap at AED7 for the entire trip from Ibin Batuta Mall or New Dubai to Rahidya Station or Bur Dubai.

  • Awsome Service2 o de 3 WeeX: VPN Pro Net VPN service (for privacy, security from attacks and info theft, transaction scope, Skype savings) which is extremely easy to set up, costs only $8 a month, with awesome (instant and friendly) site and email support.

  • Awful Service o de 3 WeeX: text text Dubai RTA's buses went to bus stop according to RTA's Wojhati online, checked with personnel at station, checked with Wojhati on phone twice, but no bus stopped for ~ 1 hour even though waved.

  • Awful Service2 o de 3 weeX: LeechGet Team didn't send license number even though been 3 days minimum since purchase (got receipt) and said will take 2 days maximium, then when used site support to get it didn't work /\ then didn't reply to email regarding license number, and took them 6 days to send license key, and even then not sure if it works. Also, program forces you to have it as the default program, and there is no way to change that, I even asked them but they didn't reply for a really long time now.

  • Vid o de 3 weeX : The Dark Knight - Joker Interrogation Scene @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyWIBRIu-xg&feature=player_embedded#t=23

  • Quote o de 3 weeX: "If you do not pro-actively direct your life then something or someone else will. Create a future picture statement; take charge and set your own course! It is dangerous just to be responding to the world around you without any preconceived vision, goals, and objectives." -Mow Row (~Gordon Bruin)

Dear ,



  • eVent o de 2 weeX: invented Muay Thai training programs, one I call Principle & Technique Boost, and the other I call Speed & Combo Boost.

  • info o de 2 weeX: Reiki means Rei (Universal Energy / God Power / Holy Energy / Surpeme Power / vertical energy / white light) Ki (Life Force / Prana in Hindi / energy of the thoughts, emotions, and spirit / earthly energy / horizontal energy). [more below]

  • App o de 2 weeX: Windows SteadyState by Microsoft enables system administration without having to have Windows XP Pro, though nowhere as good as Windows XP Pro Group Policy Tool because is inconsistent and needs time to learn and adapt to.
  • SHite o de 2 weeX: oDesk is extremely confusing, especially when paying by the hour whereby you get 10s of conflicting work reports or time-sheets, and you get charged without notice, so I ended up paying for the same thing twice

  • SHite2 o de 2 weeX: Etisalat power-drains the Blackberry. Etisalat installed a patch on Blackberry that aims to siphon info whenever one request roaming services or upgrade from them, but instead of doing only that, it drains huge amounts of power rendering it barely functional.

  • Quote o de 2 weeX: "There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go." -Richard Bach




info o de 2 WeeX: Reiki [more]
Reiki is an ancient healing art that was rediscovered by Usui in the 1800s. The idea is that by having certain principles and attitudes towards life, anybody can attract the Universal Energy to heal anything, including electronics since everything is made up of the same energy.

The principles of life are straightforward really: be kind to all, do not be angry, do not worry, be honest, be thankful. By having these principles, the ability to attract Universal Energy or Ki (Chi in Chinese) is possible, and is assisted with attunement by an existing Reiki master who will help open up the chakras.

The princples when it comes to healing: the focus must always be on giving, from both the person bringing healing, and the person being healed. The most important principle is to leave ego aside, even when it comes to the idea of being a healer whereby one must not think of himself as a healer, but simply a channel for the healing. Also, the healing must be done with love. The light then travels to the chakras with most need, but distributing the light with the hands helps to balance out the healing effect.

Each chakra is embeded with Mental/Emotional features, Physical Features, hence Mental/Emotional Problems, Physical Problems, and hence the door to bring mental balance, the ability to heal emotional ailments, and the ability to heal physical ailments.

Physical problems are explained in terms of stress in this life and the past life. In this life, stress causes toxins to accumulate in the body, so the defensive mechanism over-reacts to remove the toxins, which causes inflamation, and fever builds up in aim to burn the toxins. In past lives, the actions were recorded in the DNA, so any bad karma that has not been cleared lead to stress that is high enough to cause an over-defensive mechanism called "armouring", that is, to have been locked up within the body. That locked up stress later causes the same symptoms as stress in this life, hence causing an overreactive defensive mechanism causing inflamation and fever and such.

Whenever a person summons Reiki to heal himself or another, the Reiki light helps bring balance to the summoner and the person being healed, and may heal physical ailments or emotional/mental problems. Hence, giving is its own reward, and giving is receiving. In other words, when you give, you receive (automatically, without worrying or requesting anything in return).

Having said that, I am rather skeptic about whether those that ask you for money for spiritual services such as healing are truly able to heal or actually have anything with spirituality. Some say that it is a way of giving value to their work, and some say that it helps the person being healed / assisted to motivate himself to use the assistance, and one said (my Reiki master actually) that it is essential to have the exchange happen because there must be give and take for the benefit to take place (which I find absurd really).

Dear ,


  • eVent o de Week: tried out Grace Light meditation. Interesting mix between Reiki and Raj Yoga light visualization. Claims to clear blocks to success and relaxation, and to help erase bad karma. The light is different than the Reiki white light, and is mainly golden in color. The chakras are 12 as apposed to 7 in Reiki


  • info o de Week: The 7 Natural Laws of the Universe which includes the Law of Attraction [more below].


  • Biz o de Week: oDesk for outsourcing your work. I was suprised by the amount of people that bid on my jobs just as soon as I post, and most are from Philippines too!


  • Shite o de Week: LimeWire seems to have too many files that are either malicious or advertising intended.


  • Shite2 o de Week: outsourcing is very difficult because it takes time to find the right person or team. I already hired two teams now on one assignment, and both were failures because they either missed the milestones and didn't update me or they just didn't understand (or want to understand) my actual requirements.


  • Quote o de Week: "Watch your thoughts; they become feelings. Watch your feelings; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny" -unknown (I heard this one in church then researched it XD . Isn't it lovely?)



info o de Week (more)
I was researching Law of Attraction by a Meetup group here in Dubai and found the following, mostly published by The SGR (Science of Getting Rich) (I think they are trying to sound like Church of Scientology or something) all over the web.

Here is a small summareh:

  • 1. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation.
    Energy moves into physical form. The images you hold in your mind most often materialize in results in your life.


  • 2. The Law of Relativity.
    Nothing is good or bad, big or small... until you RELATE it to something. Practice realting your situation to something much worse and yours will always look good.


  • 3. The Law of Vibration and Attraction.
    Everything vibrates, nothing rests. Conscious awareness of vibration is called feeling. Your thoughts control your paradigms and your vibration (which dictates what you attract). When you are not feeling good, become aware of what you are thinking, then think of something pleasant.


  • 4. The Law of Polarity.
    Everything has an opposite: Hot - Cold, Up - Down, Good - Bad. Constantly look for the good in people and situations. When you find it, tell the person. People love compliments and the positive idea in your mind makes you feel good. Remember, good idea = good vibrations.


  • 5. The Law of Rhythm.
    The tide goes out ... night follows day ... good times ... bad times. When you are on a down swing, do not feel bad. Know the swing will change and things will get better. There are good times coming, think of them.


  • 6. The Law of Cause and Effect.
    Whatever you send into the Universe comes back. Action re-action are equal and opposite. Say good things to everyone; treat everyone with total respect and it will all come back. Never worry about what you are going to get, just concentrate on what you can give.


  • 7. The Law of Gender.
    Every seed has a gestation or incubation period. Ideas are spiritual seeds and will move into form or physical results. Your goals will manifest when the time is right. KNOW they will.

Following is an excerpt from my TJP (Technical Journal & Planner) about the pains or inefficiencies of obligations in religions, specifically Islam.

"delayed by uncle because he wntd to pray so:
1) waited for change to proper clothing for rest.
2) he thought that print in Arabic meant type so thot wil take while for me so he changed to dish-dasha to go to mosque
3) I said dat shod change bak to prpr to pray in mosque with hm on way bt he said dat wod rthr goto mosque and come bak
so to go to rest.
aftr. I said dat shod jst com to restaurant bt he said dat dn't no wer
4) finaly he sed dat wil pray quik @ home den go to rest., so I prntd den saw him waitng for prayer time so again I sed dat
shod jst go to mosque on way and by time der wil be prayer time. He disagreed and spent ~10M prayng in advance
saying wil pray same prayer again later
5) waited fr hm to change (~2M) den left.. finally
In total, got delayed by about 45Minutes because of this one single prayer."
