Hobbies and interests:  Reading books, newspapers; watching news; and sightseeing

Personal Points of View:

– Don’t be proud of the past and present success but  be always prepared for the future success. (December 4, 2006)

– Love cannot be determined just by word, but by real conduct of anyone. However, the evaluation of someone’s love can be done only at the end of his/her life. (December 8, 2006)

– To criticize someone else is easy but to be criticized is hard to accept. Unless you accept critics from others, you will never improve yourself. (December 11, 2006)

Generally, people can mostly enjoy happiness with you but hardly share sadness with you. Thus those who can fulfill the latter can be your best friends. (July 2, 2007)

– I don’t expect other people think the same as what I think, but I think that other people can do what I can do. (February 11, 2008)

To have a rational thought and plan is good but what is more important than that is to put it into practice. Without implementing your thought it is hard to realize that you are good or bad. (February 23, 2009)

-If I am allowed to say a few words to all, I will say “please listen, observe and think before you start saying your words about things you see to others.” (September 11, 2010)

-You don’t need to try to make people understand you but make them understand what you are doing. It will take time and you must be even more patient! (November 14, 2016)

    that is right sometimes it is very hard to accept criticism from others even we have a felling we already prepare to accept it. it also need experiences. we have to practice it until we can accept it naturally withouth any resentment.
