MARRIAGE

I would like to share this story to all my readers regarding a story i read in facebook..

MARRIAGE

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.

She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane.

When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.

She requested that every day for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife's divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside
the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me.

On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy.

I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.

Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.

At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead.
My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push thru with the divorce.-- At least, in the eyes of our son--- I'm a loving husband....

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

A CHRIST-CENTERED MARRIAGE IS A MARRIAGE THAT IS SURE TO LAST A LIFETIME.

So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate. Matthew 19:6.

Chinese-speaking Malay DJ in trouble . Jamal

PETALING JAYA: Popular 98.8 FM DJ Jamaluddin Ibrahim has been asked to go on leave after receiving a letter from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Known as Jamal to his fans, the DJ hosts the “Say Hi to Malaysia” morning programme from Monday to Friday.

“I was notified by the management yesterday evening to take leave for the present,” he told FMT, adding that his leave was “indefinite”.

Jamal said the radio station received a letter from the MCMC which carried a complaint about his programme.

“The letter said that my comments have influenced the security of the country. (It also said) my comments on race relations were not acceptable,” he added.

Asked if he knew why a complaint was filed, Jamal replied, “I really don't know. The MCMC didn't mention (if there was) something wrong.”

The DJ has been asked to report to the MCMC's office in Cyberjaya tomorrow morning.

I am not sure why this is happening. All he merely do every morning is to discuss about the current RAKYAT issue. Those issue is very real . Muting the DJ does not change the fact that those issue discuss by him is gone...

Talking about issue i also have a lot to bring up like:-

1. We have so many speed trap and traffic summon and yet the number of accident do not go down? Yeah a few percent does not count. I am talking about exponential drop in traffic accident by ways of educating and not via setting up road block everywhere which deter car to even travel more than 40kmh in high way during festive season.

2. Everytime we are given a summon notice but where is the proof. The proof should be attached. Why the need to go and verify if the summon is valid or not by the citizen. this system can be easily improve.

3. Why so many illegal business in Malaysia like illegal DVD. If i can easily spot 1 or 2 booming illegal DVD seller , why not the police?



>> Latest update on Jamal and the gang.. The channel is remove. All DJ on that channel is no longer there..hmm where are they? Please come back. We support you.

2. Edit variables.txt as follows:

change
"transparentshadows=1" to "transparentshadows=0"
shadowmapsize=2048 to 1024



The available variables are in alphabetical order... if you do not have this variable... ADD IT.

Review.

Ok the review begin. It always started with the Alienware m11x. The spec says that m11x come with a 5.1 channel output and sound card. That's when i try to get my hand on some serious good 5.1 channel headphone.

There are lots of choice in the market. But i would say majority of them is not a REAL 5.1 channel headphone. Those are actually 2 channel headphone with emulated 5.1 or even 7.1 channel sound via an external usb sound card. I dont need all that...otherwise my klipsch custom-1 would do fairly good too..

I needed a REAL 5.1 channel headphone...which means 3 speaker on each side of the headphone..and that when i discover Roccat Kave...

Comfort. (4/5)
This headphone is heavy. Yes heavy. If you wear it the wrong way then it will put stress on certain part of your head. This will make you uncomfortable..however wearing it correctly will make you comfy...The correct wearing style that works for me is to slightly position the top band towards the front and make sure the 3 pad is touching your top of the head to distribute the weight so that the weight is not center on your side of the ear..

Sound (4.5/5)
The sound is superb with 2 sound profile game and movie but
it is really hard to notice the different so i would just stick with movie mode. The sound is superb when you are playing games taht support 5.1 channel. Watching movie with it is superb however please take note...

1.make sure your player support the 5.1 channel
2. the source is 5.1 channel

And the reason i give it 4.5/5 is because of the vibration and bass..by default you can hear bass and very minor vibration..but then it is not the headphone fault..it is because the crappy on board sound card is not powerful enough...
The fix is simple...get Creative X-FI external 5.1 channel usb sound card. Once your pair Alienware m11x with usb creative x-fi 5.1 channel usb external sound card and roccat kave...It was superb!!!!!

Style (5/5)
This headphone look great..owning..period..

Control (5/5)
There is an external control on the Roccat Kave.You can set Center, Front, Rear and Sub directly fron the control. There is also a mute function for the headphone and microphone..

It is a shame that Starcraft 2 now cannot support microphone function. Hopefully Blizzard gonna fix it..Otherwise it will be fun to chat in Battlenet games...

And as ussual i attached the unboxing pictures..:)

Units hidden dialogue:
----------------------
Also, the amount of polish in the game is amazing. Every single unit has a dozen
or more unique dialogue when you click on them repeatedly. The best thing to do
though, is assign a unit to a group (1 to 0) and just hold the number button down
and listen to the chatter.

Secret mission:
---------------
In the "Media Union" mission, destroy the red building that is all by itself on the
right edge of the map. There is a pathway to it from the small enemy expansion base
that is just north of the player's starting position. It reads as a civilian building
when you hover over it, but after it is destroyed, a message will appear stating a
secret mission has been unlocked. The mission should be accessible through the Starmap
immediately after unlocking it.
Note: You cannot play the secret mission after going to Char, as you have to go to
another planet. Thus, you must go to the load menu and load a game from before Char
to play the secret mission.


World Of Warcraft references:
-----------------------------
Once you are on the ship's cantina, look in the upper left to see a red female holograph
doing the same dance as the female night elf from World Of Warcraft.
During the Protoss missions, watch the TV to see a music advertisement for LVL800ETC
featuring a lot of songs. All those songs are from a metal band called LVL80ETC, which
is made up of Blizzard employees and is dedicated to all things StarCraft and Warcraft.
The lead singer is the head of Blizzard's art department.


Zerg Queen Quick Larval Injection:
----------------------------------
[BACKSPACE] is used to cycle through your species's command center. For the Zerg player,
this is handy since each queen needs to "do stuff" with larvae. What I do is bind BACKSPACE
(or the cycle command center function) to one of my extra mouse buttons and speed up the
process.

1.Select all queens with control group
2.Hold down inject larvae hotkey
3.Press BACKSPACE to jump between each hatch, and click that hatch. This will use the
closest queen to cast inject larvae, without having to press inject larvae each time.


Easter Egg - Marines:
---------------------
Marines can be found in various places in the single player campaign.

* On the mission "Havens Fall," search the bottom left corner near the refugees. Just
before the bottom left Zerg base in the water is a Marine frozen in "carbonite."
* On the mission "Zero Hour," where you wait 20 minutes for evacuation, search the top
of the map, just above the left vespene geiser. Here you can find a Tauren Space Marine.
He will enter an outhouse -- if you click it 3 times it will shoot into space, unlocking
that level's secret.
