Kiarong Round About

I thought no one will say anything about the cars displayed on the Kiarong/Kiulap Round about.

Surprisingly, I saw this in Borneo Bulletin today.




It's in the Opinion Page, where people can write to the papers complain, praise, raise out question and so on. Hehe. Mostly is complaining about E-"Turtle" lah.

Back to the topic.. Hmm.. The cars had been placed there few days already. When I first saw it, I was like "Wah, so sayang ah leave the car there under the hot sun and heavy rain. Later the car cannot start liao." I know it's a stupid thought, so?

And when Derrick saw it, he said, "Later the bugs crawl inside". Actually I don't quite get it.

But I think it's smart of them to place ad there lah. Lots of people will passed by that area mah.


SO hard for me to take a clear picture of this.
See the cars ON the round about?
Beside is the signboard of the company(The white color papan)

I also know a lot of people don't dare to drive tru this round about. They would rather go one big big round just to avoid it.

WHY? Because (most of) Brunei drivers had forgotten their laws in traffic.

They:-


- Simply "siap" (meaning squeeze in) to the next lane
- WITHOUT signal lagi!
- Ching-chai makan people's road/lane
- There's 3 lane, so some stupid people will (purposely) go into the wrong lane because it's faster that way
- (I don't know why but..) Everyday I saw car rosak there one.
- and also accident happened almost everyday too in that round about.

But still, I use this way everyday because it's the fastest route to go home and sleep.

And yes, placing those cars there do create traffic and accidents, I think.
Kaypo driver go slow slow, eyes looking at those car, then don't see the car infront brake or whatever, then..Ka-boom! Ambulance "E-O-E-O-E-O".


The cars won't be there for long one lah, I think (again).

If you think Kiarong Roundabout is scary, wait till you see this!
A Kiasu 5-in-1 Round about!

Here's a little something...See the mosque at the background?



People, that's the Jamé Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque.

Heh, I don't even know the name till I Google-search it. I once met a visitor from "I-forget-where-liao" says wanna be a thief at night and go scrap the gold from the Golden Dome. Hahhaa. People, people, Bruneians are not rich, our Sultan is.

Hahahaa... another reason why Nonnie's blog is my fav - it's so updated about Brunei! :D. and sometimes, she thinks like me - great Bruneian minds think alike what! :D

This was on me and Izham's thought yesterday - it started of with a joke by my beloved joker - "What car stopped in the middle of the roundabout and they won't get hit or honked by the other drivers". Izham actually drove me all the way to the roundabout last nite. (Well, it was fun, and a bit romantic coz only in Brunei you'd get to see tress dressed with coloured lights).

Ms King, don't stop don't stop blogging!

I am sure you have heard the song "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club but have you ever given much thought to its meaning? While on Earth, you are living in a world of reincarnation which is governed by the law of karma. Karma begins to propel you as Soul on a personal journey through the universe. Karma ends when you have reached enlightenment and fully realise that this physical reality and the Universe itself is just an illusion. When you reach a state of knowingness that there is but One all pervading essence and that essence or consciousness is You!
So what is Karma and how does it work? While in the illusion you have a soul. This soul lives past, present, and future lives. To grow in love, joy, and awareness, you reincarnate into a series of physical bodies to experience different existences. This road leads to the experiences of being both sexes, all races, religions, and ethnic types throughout many lifetimes.
Karma in its simplicist terms can be described by the biblical statement "as you sow, so also shall you reap". Karma is the principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, total cosmic justice and personal responsibility. It brings 'good' experiences as well as 'bad' - a debt must be repaid and a blessing rewarded.

A more indepth esoteric look at karma gives us the following distinctions: Sanchita Karma: the accumulated result of all your actions from all your past lifetimes. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of every day either you are adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. Prarabdha Karma: the portion of your "sanchita" karma being worked on in the present life. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts surface to be worked on. Agami Karma: the portion of actions in the present life that add to your "sanchita" karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to "sanchita" karma and are sent to future lives. Kriyamana Karma: daily, instant karma created in this life that is worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off - ie. you do wrong, you get caught and you spend time in jail.
As a soul, you experience a constant cycle of births and deaths with a series of bodies for the purpose of experiencing this illusionary world gaining spiritual insights into your own true nature until the totality of all experiences show you Who you really are - the I AM! Until you have learned, you will find that pretending that the rules of karma do not exist or trying to escape the consequences of your actions is futile.
Although it may often "feel" like punishment, the purpose of karma is to teach not to punish. Often the way we learn is to endure the same type of suffering that we have inflicted on others and also rexperience circumstances until we learn to change our thinking and attitudes.

We are all here to learn lessons as spiritual beings in human form. These lessons are designed to help us grow into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. They teach us our true nature of love. Where we do not choose love, show forgiveness, teach tolerance, or display compassion, karma intervenes to put us back on the path of these lessons. Quite simply, the only way to achieve a state of karmic balance is to be love.
Before you incarnated into your present personality, you agreed to put yourself in the path of all that is you need to learn. Once you got here, you agreed to forget this. Karma is impersonal and has the same effect for everyone. It is completely fair in its workings and it is predictable - "do onto others as you would have them do unto you" is a way to ensure peace and tranquillity in your own life as well as the lives of those you come into contact with. The law of karma is predictable - "as you sow, so shall you reap" what is done to you is the net result of what you have done to others!
Karma gives you the opportunity at every moment to become a better person than you are and to open up to the realization that you are the master of your own fate.

The goal of karma is to give you all the experiences that you need to evolve into greater levels of love, joy, awareness, and responsibility. Karma teaches that you are totally responsible for the circumstances of your life. They keep you on the straight and narrow until you have mastered your vehicle and can ride freely on your own. Once you understand that you are the master of your own circumstances and that everything you experience is a direct result of your past actions due to your thinking and emotional responses you can overcome its seeming negative effects by creating only 'good' karma.
Karma forces us to look beyond ourselves (oneness) so that we can see ourselves as we truly are Whole, Complete, at One with everything. Once we truly understand ourselves, we can see our divinity and our unity with all life.
Karma drives us to service. Love means service. Once you accept total responsibility for your life, you see yourself as a soul in service to God. Once you do, you become a fully realized being, allowing God to experience the illusion through you.
Belief in karma and an understanding of its workings will lead you to a life of bliss. Only your own deeds can hinder you. Until the time comes when we release ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles of limitation and fully understand who and what we are we will live under the mantle of karma. So until that day why not create some wonderful experiences for ourselves by "doing onto others, as we would have them do unto us". personal development
