‘I am only a layman economist whose knowledge is gathered from ‘on the ground’ experience.’ – quote myself from a private reply via Facebook,asking me to share my views on the social behaviors of people to form the base of successful foreign trade agreements, of which I was surprised. In fact most of my knowledge is gained from curiosity. I am happy so far of my observation and hope these senses will be sharpened further before I can formally contribute. For now, it’s still keen studying. This is more important than merely reading off books, and quoting other source references that could sometimes hinder original thinking. Personal opinion. Have a nice day studying! – Karen Fu

In God We Trust, In truth We trust. July 3, 2013

Mid night thoughts here to share. And I will just write what I think here. This isn’t the first time I get people, who prey on my bluntness online. I think I need to fine tune to people who play on my weaknesses. But this incident made me think a lot about people and minds, and the kind of world we are going to get if we retain the kind of cunning behaviors. Online behaviors are easier to catch because it can be traced. But offline ones can be a little difficult. But in due course, one can still see the genuine characters of people. There are responsibilities in the lines of speech, and the intentions behind the actions and purpose. Actually stalking and posting irrelevant replies online could also be seen as offensive. I suppose my post here can also be seen as a rant but I think there are precious lessons to be learnt.

Reread his dialogue on the thread on Facebook, I think I have let him played on me by using open lines that could be played around later. Can’t do anything now that he has disappeared right after I posted the reply in this *thread. While looking at the link just a moment ago, his name has fully disappeared and a ‘Facebook user’ is after an empty image. Honestly, I was furious. It felt like playing around, shooting it out and before you read on, all have vanished. Reminds me of another incident last year where this came from an old school mate whom I have not seen for more than 15 years or so. A completely changed person, who actually was a model student in school, now divorced from her husband who is now allowed to legally keep the children from her. She played on insulting by going to a place that we had agreed not to go as I couldn’t take the sort of seafood they were offering. Obviously she didn’t care and went on to arrange the whole dinner 30 minutes before the stated time and had her dinner with another friend of ours. So when I arrived, they had already eaten and were too full to eat. She apologized unwillingly that I wanted to skip the dinner meet up. But I want to see the other friend, so I went. Then I wished I didn’t. It was insulting to hear them looking down on my profession as well as showing disbelief that I could do up the kind of work they think I couldnt because I was not academically as brilliant as they were. That incident was something similar in the sense she felt that God knew what she was doing and she was righteous about it. To be honest, I hate that line after what she did. I have nothing against Christians but I do hate Christians who played around the notion of God. God is the almighty in Christianity. Actions and intentions are seen very clearly under Heaven’s eyes. I don’t know why such people want to do it, they may be thinking they could get away with it. I have stopped talking to her and I make it open I do not condone the act. She had had a line of misfortunes that saw her in huge distress and she still failed to understand why all her children are in irreversible trouble and blamed that God hadn’t treated them fairly. I think I may know the answer that her sins were not repented. As a Christian, or indeed with all other non Christians, aren’t we suppose to repent and learn from life horrors? The strangest thing was after that, all her lines of story were revealed to me by accident. I genuinely believe that good health and well being comes from a genuinely kind soul. Especially so when you have a religion. Not a nice comment here, but these online dialogues remind me of that incident. He is going to use this as his next social media presentation. This itself is a retaliation behind. My facebook cannot tarnish his image. It is his own presentation that could do more harm.

I can’t stop anyone from saying and doing anything they want, as I am no God. I probably sound more religious than at least these two persons I have mentioned as I am a free thinker; but I do believe we are looked upon by just one common Lord. And the Lord is no dumbbell to not able to see the real intentions and actions. I wouldn’t dare to play around under the eyes of heaven. It does come around. – Karen Fu

Kindness we must, protection we must too April 15, 2013

Kindness pays. And the law of life does work this way, where a truthful earnest kindness will yield a reward somehow somewhere. But in a world where people can come in with different hues and shades, it’s better to leave some leeway for our own protection especially when we do not know who our readers and onlookers are. Before their karma comes, I think we need to be first astute to save unwanted trouble. Having said this, I do not warrant total anonymity where a name, a picture or something decent to show a fair introduction is absent. It shows secrecy that is close to hideousness, especially true of political and business agendas.

Perhaps others may well think differently, but I have seen people who do attack out of personal agendas. The best is actually avoid these unwanted attacks. People’s minds are complex. What is straightforward may sometimes come out to become something of an agenda somehow. If you are talented, it will show. There is no need to spread on purpose. If you have a cause to share, share them. If after sharing it in good light that people should still find a way to knock you down and out, then please, by all means, refute it. Refute it in the most earnest, honest and fair way to debate it out. But not attack it personally. In cyberspace or in real life, there is no place for people who are small minded. And there s definitely no place for people with hidden personal agendas. Small two cents of thought for the day. – Karen Fu
