Another 3 “lost and found” miracles that happened in the past few months in 2022. Very embarrassing but I must share and thank the people who returned my belongings and thank God for the lucky circumstances. (1) On 5 May, while having an argument over the phone on the bus, my wallet dropped from my pants’ pocket which was too shallow and I didn’t notice. A few moments later, a preteen girl who was sitting behind me handed it back to me. I am so grateful for this young stranger, otherwise I would have lost my means of withdrawing money… Read More "Another 3 lost-and-found miracles"
How I mistakenly reduced my own payment but received the original amount anyway
This is how I was saved today from making a dastardly mistake of getting my payment cut, thanks to amazing people and God’s work. So back in December 2021, my dear friend Germaine accepted a job through me: A low-budget video job from an NGO for RM1000 or $250 to make simple cuts for 14 videos. However, by March, they only sent her 9 out of 14 videos to complete, but I advanced the full payment to Germaine since I promised to pay her in March and would request the organization to pay me after all 14 videos were done.… Read More "How I mistakenly reduced my own payment but received the original amount anyway"
How I got a refurbished phone in one weekend despite only having $100 (at first)
I’d like to recount some things that happened two weekends ago (24-26 June 2022), which I really thank God for, on how I got a new phone even though I had less than RM400 or US$100. That’s how I have been easily taking photos, posting to my stories, and replying y’all. Basically, I had been using a $50 burner phone (OPPO R7) for the past 2 months, because the screen of my Huawei P20 Pro (that I have been using since 2018) was broken due to me chasing the bus in pants with shallow pockets. (The phone dropped.) In Brazil,… Read More "How I got a refurbished phone in one weekend despite only having $100 (at first)"
Forgot my wallet but got it back before it was too late
Another miracle: I just lost my wallet in an Uber in Brazil as I got dropped off. After a few seconds of driving off, the driver honked and and returned the wallet back to me. Losing it was VERY STRANGE because I had never dropped my wallet before from the deep pockets of the pants I’m wearing for 5 years. Also I normally check the seat before leaving the car, but this time I was talking on the phone to my mom. If I lost my wallet, I have no way to get a new debit card to access my… Read More "Forgot my wallet but got it back before it was too late"
My locked bicycle was almost stolen in Brazil!
Foggy night… I’d like to share what happened 2 hours ago when I came back. As you all know from my previous post, I went to Santos to do some documentation matters. So I parked my bicycle here in the afternoon as I woke up late and was in a rush. I didn’t know where to park, so I somehow had the idea to park next to this bakery. 8 hours later… When I returned to the spot I parked, a man from the pharmacy ran out and asked if that was my bike, because the police had earlier stopped… Read More "My locked bicycle was almost stolen in Brazil!"
Lost my passport in Brazil and how I got it back
Today I’d like to share how I lost my Malaysian passport (which I put in a purple plastic bag) in an Uber in Brazil on 4th May 2022. I contacted support but no news for a whole week, and unlike Grab in Malaysia, I couldn’t contact the driver anymore. So the only thing I knew how to do was to pray a lot, trusting in God and not what I see or in my own ways. A lot of my friends prayed for me also. Some people tried to scare me by telling me about how many passports are sold… Read More "Lost my passport in Brazil and how I got it back"
My bicycle almost got stolen in Brazil and how I got it back
Just found out my bicycle almost got stolen between yesterday and today. I had parked it outside quietly behind a house two days ago. Even though I had locked the wheel, it was moved to another location, before a kind neighbour saw it and moved it to their house. He recognized my purple bicycle and knew it was in the process of being stolen. The only reason it wasn’t stolen yet was because the wheel was locked. So we found out all this earlier today because this neighbour’s mom came to our house and told us everything. So it appears… Read More "My bicycle almost got stolen in Brazil and how I got it back"
Love of my life
Found the love of my life…… in Brazil! So now we are just figuring out how to get married and have 30 children as soon as possible! Ha ha ha. There have been many mountains to overcome but by God’s grace and miracles we pushed through. Let us know if you have any questions and we’ll be glad to answer them! I want to be a blogger again! But this time I will write about my adventures and miracles that happened in my life instead of blogging about blogging, which doesn’t make much sense if you think about it deeply 😅 Read More "Love of my life"
How I Got 3000 Visitors from a Single Tweet by a Power User
Last week, I got 3,000 visitors from just a SINGLE tweet by a power user. Wow, can you imagine the power of that single tweet? Here’s how it happened I woke up one morning to check my statistics… WHAT? I got 3000 visitors in one day? Cool! I then hurriedly scanned my analytics to find out what was causing the huge spike in traffic. I discovered that a twitter power user, Jon Winokur @AdvicetoWriters, tweeted my blog post called 9 Confusing Confusions in English Grammar, which I published back in November 2010. Here’s the tweet When Jon tweeted my blog… Read More "How I Got 3000 Visitors from a Single Tweet by a Power User"
