Ian Andrews Ireland

I am now in Kuala Lumpur, where we travelled from Penang by car yesterday to a factory in Selangor for an ongoing project. This morning, I was surfing the internet and came across Ian Andrews Ireland, where you can click on the link to find out more information. I am still having aspinatus tendonitis on my right arm and have decided to exercise at home to heal it, instead of going to a rehabilitation centre in Lam Wah Ee Hospital.

Self-healing is the best form of healing and besides, I am very busy working at home to spend an hour to travel there and another hour of waiting and going back. By the way, Dublin is the largest and capital city of Ireland. Dublin is found on the east section of the island. The metropolitan area of Dublin is a residence of around 1/3 of the nation’s 4.75 million inhabitants.

34 Freelance Websites to Find Online Jobs

There are many freelance websites that you can search around to find online jobs. The above infographic lists 34 of them, of which I am a member of some of the above-mentioned. They are good in the sense that they give you some work while earning some allowance at the same time. Microworkers pays little but you can accummulate bit by bit to hit the USD 10 for withdrawal. And you must maintain a certain success rate in order to continue taking up tasks that you feel comfortable of completing.

Craigslist is a superb forum to look for free gigs online now and then. There are many enquiries daily and you can check based on countries and states like in the USA. Fiverr is also recommended where I find freelancers at affordable rates to complete debugging for me and do amendments for my sites. With the current situation now and the economy, we need to work hard and work smart to save up for our retirement in time to come.

Upwork and Freelancer belongs to the same company and you have to compete with cheaper and more affordable freelancers from India, the Philippines, etc and countries with very low cost of living, offering peanuts for lots of work. Meanwhile, good luck hunting for online jobs and I shall also check up some of them.


In the Jewish community, the promise, “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out”, refers to being blessed in the affairs of one’s daily life, whether in or outside one’s home.

So here, God is saying that you are blessed in your everyday life. Do you believe it? Do you believe that every day, your family and work life are blessed? Or do you think that you are blessed only during Christmas when you receive your gifts and year-end bonus, or when you get that promotion you have been wanting? Perhaps you think that the blessed life only begins when you meet the man or woman of your dreams!

No, my friend, you are blessed every day and you have God’s Word for it. Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!” And because God’s Word says so, believe that every day of your life is loaded with benefits. Every morning, when you get up, believe that it is a day that the Lord has made, and rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24) Start the day expecting it to be loaded with the benefits that God has prepared just for you.

At night, when it is time to sleep, know that you will be blessed when you get up in the morning because there will be another load of benefits from your heavenly Father, who so loves you unconditionally, waiting for you!

You can’t make your blessings happen. But if you will just believe what God has said in His Word and act like it is so, the blessings will manifest in your life. In fact, God wants to bless you more than you want to be blessed! His Word declares it: “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out…Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!”

Beloved, believe God’s Word. Believe Him for the blessings and you will find yourself loaded with His daily benefits!

9 Important Life Lessons For All

1. It’s good to fail

Failure is a scary word and we often try to hide it from our friends, but you shouldn’t because failure is good! This is why I want to thank all the people who crossed my path, either for years at a time or for just a simple discussion; people I met face to face and people I met online; on Facebook or from leaving a comment on my blog. Every single one of you, every interaction I had with you, made me the person I am today and I am thankful for that!

2. It doesn’t matter what other people think

This one has been a hard lesson to learn. I have always had many dreams and projects in mind. For example: writing a book, starting a blog, traveling, etc. And when I talk about them I often receive negative answers. My first tip is to get rid of people that are bringing you down. Then just let them talk, don’t take it personally most of the time the negative and snarky comments reflect their own insecurities. Just do what you want, follow your dreams, and ignore them!

3. Hard work always pays off

Either for your career or your personal projects, know that if you work hard, you can make anything happen. But here is the catch. You need to work smart. Meaning that you first need to learn the steps to make it happen. If you want to lose weight you need to learn about food and exercise. If you want to advance in your career, you need to gain new skills. There are so many ways to learn:

Watch YouTube videos
Read articles
Listen to podcasts
Take classes

Once you have acquired the knowledge you need, make a plan with deadlines to push you to stick to it! And remember if it doesn’t work, it’s okay because you acquired new knowledge and experiences that will make you more likely to succeed the next time!

4. You need to learn how to say no

When was the last time you felt overwhelmed? It was probably because you had too much on your plate. This is why you need to learn how to say no.

You don’t have to go to happy hour with your coworkers or friends every week.
You don’t have to bake a cake for school or work.
You don’t have to drink alcohol every time you go out.
You don’t have to go to 5 Christmas parties in 2 weeks.
You don’t have to wear pink every Wednesdays
You don’t have to please everybody.

You have the permission to say no when you feel like it.

5. More money doesn’t make you happier

The more I grew in my career and my salary increased, the more I realized that I was stressing out. Here’s the thing: For one, with money comes responsibilities. Also, when you make more money, you will adapt your lifestyle to it. Meaning that you will spend more money.

For example, you will buy a house adding more to your bills, you will buy the newest iPhone while the old one still works, you will go out to more expensive restaurants and become more picky about food. So the more you make money, the more you spend.

But in today’s economy, there’s no job security. Especially when you work in the tech industry like me. So not only are you scared about keeping your job, but also about finding a job that will allow you to maintain your new, more expensive, lifestyle. So instead of focusing on money, you should focus on your happiness.

6. Communication is key for a successful relationship

My spouse and I are happy. I feel very close to him. But I’m going to be honest and let you know that it wasn’t always the case. About a year ago we were fighting all the time for very small things and our relationship became toxic. It was like we couldn’t stand each other anymore. But one day we talked and realized that a lot of our issues came from the way we communicated with each other. We worked on that and are now much happier. We joke around all the time, which rarely happened a year ago.

Here are a few tips:

Listen to your spouse.
When you are getting upset get away from the situation before saying stupid things.
If something is bothering you, say it, but not when you are mad. Start a discussion when you are both in a good
mood so you can solve the problem.
Don’t talk down to your spouse, you are equal partners.
Don’t point the finger but express your feelings.

7. You need to be flexible

If you know me, you are aware that I always make plans! Once I reach a goal, I need a new one or I feel lost. But life will often steer you into new directions that you never expected. So making plans is good, and you should have plans, but don’t be scared of changing them!

8. Stay away from toxic people

My first tip is to get rid of people that are bringing you down. Then just let them talk, don’t take it personally most of the time the negative and snarky comments reflect their own insecurities. Just do what you want, follow your dreams, and ignore them!

The idea is simple: if someone is bringing you more drama than laughter and happiness, then just stop seeing them. It may seem to be mean, but why waste time with someone that you know will upset you? Don’t you have other more important things to do than worry about gossip and drama? Since I made this decision, I am happier and have no more drama in my life!

This rule also works for Facebook and other social media platforms. If you see toxic people in a group or on your feed, just block them!

9. Giving will make you happier

I always love giving! I love giving my time to meet new people, I love giving my knowledge, I love giving a smile to strangers, I love giving gifts for Christmas. You should give what you can whenever you can. Not only will people appreciate you more, but it will also make you happier!

Sothys originated in France as headquarters and was founded in 1946. Sothys, a world of extremely refined sensuality, a legendary name that represents excellence and prestige in beauty salons and spas all over the world. In Penang, it is a franchise business with outlets in Gurney Paragon with a salon for treatment and in Gurney Plaza near Parkson in a counter selling the retail products.

I was checking my over 20k plus points of Manis. As there were no more vouchers like Tesco which is a hot item, I decided to check out Health and Beauty under Rewards redemption and promptly redeemed 7,500 points for 30% discount on treatment at Sothys. I called up the outlet in Queensbay Mall, but no one picked up the phone! Hence, I called Gurney Paragon instead and made an appointment today at 6:00 pm.

Above is flower tea in a nice flowery teacup where I had drunk half before remembering to capture it using my iPhone 6. Winnie, the only attendant recommended Moisture Glow and Radiance, on item 5 for me after asking some questions and filling up a form.

Here at the counter, are their diverse range of products to cater to all skin types from whitening, to anti-aging, sun-block, rash break-ups and much more.
