I am going to start this post with..


People write songs about singing in the rain, but in real life, when they get wet, they moan. People love to watch Indiana Jones wading kneed deep through snakes and spiders, but when their office air-conditioning fails, they explode. Perhaps, if we had less adventure on our video recorder, we would look for more adventure.

"Being Comfortable" is overrated. I am not talking about "money" comfortable but "situation" comfortable. Much of our stress is created by our addiction to comfort... "Planes should always be punctual, the workload should always be easy, the bank overdraft should be comfortable.." Too much comfort gets boring. Our brain seizes up. The less rules you make for how life ought to be, the easier it is for you to respond to whatever happens.

Something else about comfort. You will notice that, very often, courage is better rewarded than IQ - and this frustrates some people. Fred says " I am highly intelligent, I ve got two degrees - and i cant believe people get better jobs and make more money!" As a rule, rewards come when we risk our reputation or our money - or both.

Those are only slight fractions taken from Follow Your Heart written by Andrew Matthews. I have few collections of his works. His Works are enlightening, entertaining and brilliant at the same time. Great for your light reading, plus, his illos are witty and superb. Oh! you can get his books at most bookstores at a price roughly around rm40.00.. Now, I am sure you must be wondering since this is not my style of opening. Probably some of his "Life is Boring syndrome" still remain? haha.. Naaaah, I thought it would just be quite fun to simply start my post differently. Add some spice to it - Make it less boring. Oh? Btw, how s your weekend. Mine was and still is great. I simply restnrileks

Now, back to restnrileks,
Well, i am sure you ve heard doodle - Now, i presents you Wordle (found it thru doodleage). Yup! that is right, a combo of "word + doodle". "Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text." You should give this a try. I ve come up with mine after key-in restnrileks.blogspot.com - or, you can simply type in certain words. The java applet will then work it out for you (kinda like the one that make you a flower tree based on your site). You can customize it to your liking too. Check its gallery. Whoaho! i like mine after teaking it a bit here and there. Have fun!!

Doodlage is having a contest of doodling on CD. Doodlage, true to its name, is about "On a quest to elevate doodling to the status of an art form that it deserves! Notebook pages, sticky notes, scraps of paper… These treasures end up in garbage and vanish from the face of the Earth forever. Trashcan art salvage. Enjoy." Doodlage houses many great artists of different styles. Wow! What else can i say - superb. The contest idea seems fun. So, err restnrileks pun join la. Closing date will be on 12th August. I just did mine yesterday. I did my doodle on two blank Cds.. Only on the front part since my pen-ink wouldnt stick to those shiny glossy back surfaces. Added some colours using markers on some spots here and there. Well, they have this group on Flickr where you can upload your work. See here - Flickr : CDoodling Group.

Orait..Have fun, have a great day everyday,till next time,

Restnrileks says tata for now. haha.

  1. Oh great! I went to both doodlage and wordle. I cannot believe myself when I saw they were doodling on shells and rocks! Hahaha.. seriously, that is amazing~

    Some of the CDs posted there were amazing too. But I am sure yours will give a good fight for the prize :D

    Lawa2.. Seriously :)

  2. Hi Rizal! Wah that wordle looks interesting and that flower tree u mentioned too he he..downloading Applet plugin now so I can see how mine looks like! Thanks for the link! :)

  3. wah,

    great.. cepatnya komen.. nii internet dah okay ka?

    Shells and rocks? i know, i ve seem many artists out there using other than just paper as their medium of expression. Just imagine!, arts on rocks? Cooooll!! a great way to bond with your child too (kalau buat sebagai aktiviti yang pupuk minat kanak2 laa kan..) and a good way too to sell as paper weight too. hehe.

    thanks... i am not hoping to win any prizes. Just being a good sportsperson i am. I had fun doing those. Really had fun, in front my tv (Oprah was on air, and Vera Wang was the guess.. interesting..)


  4. Mariuca,

    Hehe, i think i like the Wordle more that the "flower-style." Coz we can tweak the colours, fonts, styles and etc, so, jadi lebih our stail arrr kan.
