Happy New Year! And Happy Birthday, Mother!

Another year is gone by
The clock is ticking constantly
To some, time is on their side
To others, time is their enemy

Regardless, this is the day
Forget the future! Forget the past!
Today is the day
Let's make this moment last

Let's cherish the moment
Let's share some laughters
Let's toast to the present
Let's celebrate with loved ones or significant others

Life is too short and unpredictable
Embrace friends and family
Live the moment
Happy New Year everybody!

A Moving Speech

The video below shows Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple and Pixar, delivering a very inspiring speech to graduates at Stanford University in 2005. A story of yet another college drop-out who then became a self-made millionaire.

"You've got to find what you love...If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle." - Steve Jobs

The commencement script can be found here.

I can see my house!

Google Earth is one of the nifty tools from Google that provides you with satellite image of virtually any location in the world. You can zoom in the image close enough to see the streets and house roofs. Below is the satellite image of my neighborhood from Google Earth. I can spot my house. Hi Mom! Hi Dad!

My Father's Book

This book, which was just published recently in Cambodia, was written by my father. As the title suggests, the book is about his surviving experience during the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1979 that killed almost 2 million Cambodians.

As a son, I am very proud of you and your work Pa. It makes me appreciate life more after reading about your hard life during those years. Thank you for this wonderful gift. I hope it will be published in English soon. I want the world to read it and see the Khmer Rouge regime through your eyes.
