  • 6. * This book awakens us to the richness and wisdom of life’s experiences when we take the time to wonder and reflect. The stories are so down to earth yet profound in helping us to understand ourselves and others better. Teik Bin has so succinctly shown, through his own experiences, that regardless of our circumstances, there is always something to be learnt and values to be appreciated. He is able to do that through wit and humor without being overly condescending. All in all, this book is a great read, even if it is only for the stories, tales and happenings.

  • 11. 41 Begging A ‘Ghost’… A Sample Chapter In January 2011, a group of 20 of us made a 9-Day tour to Myanmar covering interesting places from Yangon up till the city of Kalaw in the north. With stunning scenic spots, fabulous food, friendly people, superb shopping sprees, captivating caves and terrific temples, this tour was indeed very unique and unforgettable. We started the tour at Yangon, a fascinating city of ancient pagodas, temples, local markets and some cottage industries. The Shwedagon Pagoda was really awesome…a magnificent wonder.
  • 12. On the third day, we took an internal flight to Bagan, an ancient city of amazing pagodas and stupas. The following day, we flew to Mandalay, a most fascinating and historic city. It was on Day 6 of the tour that we flew into Inle Lake, one of the most beautiful lake resorts I have been. It was very cool with temperatures below 15 degrees Celcius. The scenery was breathtaking and the boat tour in the lake area left great impressions in us. It was at the Inlet Lake Resort Hotel that I had one of the most funny experiences in my life. My room mate and I had checked into the twin room at about 10.30 pm. Before long we were fast asleep.
  • 13. At around 1 am, I got up to answer the call of nature. I did not lock the attached bathroom door. After I had eased myself, I came out and closed the bathroom door. I found that the round doorknob got into a jam. The Hotel had all the rooms and the Reception on the ground floor. I decided to walk to get help from the front reception place. It was dark all around. I used a torch light and when I reached the reception counter, it was closed. However, I saw a room nearby, dimly lit. As the door was half-closed, I walked into the room. I saw two Hotel staff members on duty fast asleep on the bed. I called softly to one of the two young men, hoping to wake him up. The young man opened his eyes and when he saw me standing near him, a nearly bald-headed man in sarong and a white long-sleeved shirt, he must have got the shock of his life. He crouched to one side of the bed and with his hands in a prayer position, he begged in broken English, ‘Oh, Ghost…don’t…don’t kill me. I no do bad…I am good man.’
  • 14. It took me a few minutes to calm him down. I dangled my bunch of hotel keys in front of him and explained about our jammed bathroom door. The young man soon recovered from his ‘shock’… he was really nice and helpful. He had the bathroom door fixed in no time. I apologized to him for scaring him out of his wits and I gave him a generous tip. So everything ended well. Ha, I did not for once, think that I could look like a ghost! The rest of our tour went on most smoothly. The last city we visited was Kalaw with many beautiful caves and natural spots. We really had a great holiday tour in Myanmar …so many memorable moments to treasure in our hearts for a long, long time.
  • 15. Reflection * Fear arises in the mind because of misunderstanding, conditioning, and not seeing things as they really are. * A mind that is trained in mindfulness, heedfulness and awareness can cut the roots of greed, ill will and delusion. * Oftentimes, what is speculated on and have no logical basis can drive one to irrational fear. * One needs to cast aside superstition, develop understanding and wisdom of all mental and physical phenomena . Then one will be calm and happy!
