Useful information for frequent travellers.

Are you travelling?
Grab a refrigerator magnet on your way out the door!
Always  take a small magnet on your
 vacation, they come in handy at the end of every stop.
This is  pretty good info. Never even thought about key cards containing anything other than an access code for the room

Ever  wonder what is on your magnetic key card?
a.  Customer’s name
b.  Customer’s partial home address
c.  Hotel room number
d.  Check-in date and out dates
e. Customer’s  credit card number and expiration date!

When  you turn them in to the front desk your personal information is there for  any employee to access by simply scanning the card in the hotel scanner.. An  employee can take a hand full of cards home and using a scanning device,  access the information onto a laptop computer and go shopping at your  expense.
Simply  put, hotels do not erase the information on these cards until an employee  reissues the card to the next hotel guest. At that time, the new guest’s  information is electronically ‘overwritten’ on the card and the previous  guest’s information is erased in the overwriting  process.

But  until the card is rewritten for the next guest, it usually is kept in a  drawer at the front desk with YOUR INFORMATION ON IT!

The  bottom line is: Keep the cards, take them home with you, or destroy them.  NEVER leave them behind in the room or room wastebasket, and NEVER turn them  into the front desk when you check out of a room. They will not charge you  for the card (it’s illegal) and you’ll be sure you are not leaving a lot of  valuable personal information on it that could be easily lifted off with any  simple scanning device card reader.

For the  same reason, if you arrive at the airport and discover you still have the  card key in your pocket, do not toss it in an airport trash basket. Take it  home and destroy it by cutting it up, especially through the electronic  information strip!

If you  have a small magnet, pass it across the magnetic strip several times. Then  try it in the door, it will not work. It erases everything on the  card.

Don’t cry over split milk

A wise man once sat in the audience and cracked a joke.  All of them laughed like crazy..

After a moment he cracked the same joke again & a little less people laughed this time…

He cracked the same one again & no one laughed!!!

Then he smiled and said

when you can’t laugh on the same joke again & again then why do you keep crying over the same thing over & over again

FORGET the past and MOVE ON………

Alone I can say,

but together we can shout.  

Alone I can smile,

but together we can laugh. 

Alone I can enjoy,

but together we can celebrate!


Best regards,

Uncle Teng

Noah’s Ark

Noah’s Ark Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah’s Ark.


ONE: Don’t miss the boat.

TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.

FOUR: Stay fit. When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

FIVE: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

SIX: Build your future on high ground.

SEVEN: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.

EIGHT: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

NINE: When you’re stressed, float awhile.

TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting.

My instructions were to send this to people that I wanted God to bless and I picked you. Please pass this to people you want to be blessed.

Two legged dog


This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002.

He was born with  2 legs.

He of course could not walk when he was born.

Even his mother did not  want him.  


His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’.  

But  then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.  

She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.  

She named him ‘Faith’.  

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.

Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around. Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.

Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.  


Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.  He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows. 


There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ being published about him. He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.    


His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul!  




In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction. 


I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.

Think with your own Mind


Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.

Subject: “The Law of the Garbage Truck.”

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of
us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!  
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.  My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.  And I mean he was really friendly. So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and could have sent us to the hospital!” This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
“The Law of the Garbage Truck.”  
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.  

Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so…
Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!
Life is not about waiting for the Storm to pass….

It’s about learning to Dance in the Rain

Walk with your own Stick,

Dance to your own Tune,

Think with your own Mind,

Fly with your own Wings!

**Live With The Knowledge That Your Character Is Your Destiny**

Never listen to others

Never listen to others

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs…. who arranged a running competition.

The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants. …

The race began….


No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:

“Oh! way too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.”

“Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!”


The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one….

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo were climbing higher and higher….?

The crowd continued to yell, “It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!”
More tiny frogs got tired and gave up….

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher….

This one wouldn’t give up!



At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog that, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?


A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal.

It turned out….

That the winner was DEAF!!!!



The wisdom of this story is:

Never listen to other people’s tendencies to be negative or pessimistic because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you — the ones you have in your heart!

Always think of the power words have because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!



And above all:

Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!

Always think:

God and I can do this!

Why I Can’t Get What I Want

10 Reasons Why You Can’t Get What You Want 


I believe that all of us want happiness and success in life.

However, very few can actually admit that they have got there.

 Many didn’t know why they aren’t successful, so few knew why, but didn’t do anything about it. I have the privilege to come across a list of reasons why most people couldn’t achieve happiness or success in life. As I read through, I too discovered that some of the reasons here have been standing in the way between success and me. As you go over the list now, check yourself by it, point by point, to find out how many of these causes-of-failure stand between you and success.

Lack of purpose in life – Before I start taking my life seriously, I have no major purpose in life. All day long, I would either play games at home, or after work, chill out with my friends. There is no sense of responsibility to my family, no commitment at work and of cause, no purpose. Life was pretty much a routine. A routine that I hate, a routine that I want to get rid of.

Many people I have come across are leading the life that I have led years ago.

And gradually I discovered that lack of purpose in life (or anything else for that matter) is always and will always be at the top of the list of failure.

Lack of ambition to aim high – People who are not happy at where they are and yet are unwilling to aim high above mediocre and pay the price of success, will never be happy. I have seen them, they will whine about their work, about their boss, about everything and anything under the sun. But they aren’t willing to work on it, to find out how to get ahead of the pack.

When told of what they could have done so that they could get out of the rug, they will come up will excuses for not able to do it. No success will ever befall on those who lack the ambition to aim high above the mediocrity.

Insufficient education – This is a handicap, which can be overcome with ease.

How many times have you read or heard of successful people having little or no educational background?

Experience has proven that the best-educated people are often those who are known as “self-made” or self-educated. In times like these, college degree alone is no longer sufficient to bring you to the top.

Education consists, not so much of knowledge, but of knowledge effectively and persistently applied.We are paid, not merely for what we know, but more particularly for what we do with which we know.

Lack of self-discipline – Self-discipline comes from self-control.

This means you need to control all the negative qualities you believe you have.

Self-control, though is a skill, will be one of the hardest skill you will ever learnt.

 However, if you do not conquer yourself, yourself will conquer you.

Ill health – No one can enjoy outstanding success without good health.

 Many causes of ill health is the result of poor self-control.

 Some of the examples that contribute to ill health are

-Wrong habits of thought


-Lack of proper physical exercise
– Drinking

Unfavorable environmental influence – Most people who have tendency to commit crime acquire them as the result of bad environment and improper associates during childhood.

Procrastination – One of the most common causes of failures. Procrastination is the deferment or avoidance of an action or task and is often linked to perfection.

Most people failed in life because they are waiting for the ‘time to be right’. The thing is, the time will never be right. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

Lack of persistence – There are many good ‘starters’, but very few finishers of everything they begin. They will begin something with high hopes and enthusiasm but loss that excitement when they are facing the first sign of defeat.

 But we ought to learn that nothing substitute the lack of persistence. And those who know this discovered that failure has no way in coping persistence.

Negative personality – There is no hope of success for a person who repels others through negative personality. Not many realize this; success is attained through the cooperation efforts of other people. A negative personality will not induce cooperation.

Above are 10 reasons that may have stopped you from achieving happiness, attaining success. Look through it and see if you have possessed any of them. If you have, ask yourself “what will you do to overcome them?”

Change yourself

One day all the employees reached the office and they
saw a big notice on the door on which was written:

‘Yesterday the person who has been hindering your
growth in this company passed away. We invite you to
join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in
the gym’.

In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of
one of their colleagues, but after a while they
started getting curious to know who was that man who
hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company
itself. The excitement in the gym was such that
security agents were ordered to control the crowd
within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the
excitement heated up. Everyone thought: ‘Who is this
guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he
died!’ One by one the thrilled employees got closer
to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they
suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the
coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had
touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a
mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside
it could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said:

‘There is only one person who is capable to set limits
to your growth: it is YOU. You are the only person who
can revolutionize your life. You are the only person
who can influence your happiness, your realization and
your success. You are the only person who can help
yourself. Your life does not change when your boss
changes, when your friends change, when your parents
change, when your partner changes, when your company
changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you
go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that
you are the only one responsible for your life. ‘The
most important relationship you can have is the one
you have with yourself’

Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of
difficulties, impossibilities and losses: be a winner,
build yourself and your reality. It’s the way you face
Life that makes the difference
