This morning, there was another farewell party for Angeline. Banes, Jane, Allison, Michelle and Elaine wanted to spend us a meal before Angeline leave. Angeline chose Ipoh Town Kopitiam as the venue.
Ipoh Chicken Koay Teow RM6.90
The broth was flavourful and the Koay Teow was smooth. Comes with chicken meats and prawn.
Mee Goreng and SHE RM6.90
Nothing to shout home about. Just an instant noodle with sausage, ham and egg.
Ipoh Town Curry Mee RM6.90
The Ipoh Town Curry Mee was very flavourful. Strong spices taste. Wasn't rich in coconut milk but rich in turmeric. A little bit too spicy for those who can't take spicy food.
Nasi Lemak with Rendang Chicken RM7.90
The Rendang Chicken was good. Meat was tender and it was flavourful. The Sambal was special too. Quite spicy.
Nasi Lemak Special RM7.90
The Nasi Lemak Special come with a special Pandan rice. Tasted more flavourful compare to the normal Nasi Lemak.
Nasi Lemak with Chicken Wing RM8.50
The Nasi Lemak with Chicken Wing was good as well. The Chicken Wing was crispy and flavourful. Eaten with the Sambal and Pandan rice, it was deliciously good.

Today's Meditation:
There is no true and constant gentleness without humility.While we are so fond of ourselves, we are easily offended with others. Let us be persuaded that nothing is due to us, and then nothing will disturb us. Let us often think of our own infirmities, and we will become indulgent towards those of others.
Francois Fenelon

When I read stories about monks and other people who are incredibly humble, I find myself feeling a bit of envy. I would love to be able to live a truly humble life, to be a truly humble person. In fact, that's one of the things I'm working on regularly through reading and other methods. Humility is in many ways the cause of a beautiful life, but it's also the result of a beautiful life, I think. It seems like a Catch-22 situation, you can't be humble until you tame your ego, and you can't tame your ego until you learn humility.

I think that Fenelon is right on, one of the most important aspects of humility in our own lives is the effect that it has on the way we treat others. True humility doesn't allow us to judge others, and it doesn't allow us to beat them down for what we see as their transgressions or their mistreatment of us. Everyone has faults and shortcomings, but they become magnified when we judge them, and that magnification turns them into something worse than they really are.

If we are due nothing, then we won't feel resentment when we get nothing. We won't be disturbed by other people's failure to give us what we think we have coming, which is often a misconception, anyways, either we really don't have anything coming, or it's not up to someone else to give it to us.

Humility helps us to live in balance. If we're humble, we're able to let go of expectations and be satisfied with all that life has to offer, and that satisfaction helps us to live happy, healthy lives.

Be humble and you will remain entire.
The sages do not display themselves, therefore they shine.
They do not approve themselves, therefore they are noted.
They do not praise themselves, therefore they have merit.
They do not glory in themselves, therefore they excel.
