The Power of Interaction
Before the start of a Pandemic lockdown in Malaysia that began on 18 March 2020
In the podcast video above, I had mentioned how I could keep the family together after they had all grown up because of the habits developed when young. Below is an example:
After my dear wife passed away and the children had really grown up to live more independently, I could spend time to update my knowledge of the world. I knew we were living in an era which was like never before. Man has access to this abundant and progressive knowledge of our world and beyond. At the same time, He would also possibly face the greatest challenges of his life time!
A senior friend of 30 years of mine living in the US watched my Podcast and on my early Friday morning of 10 Sep 2021, in Malaysia, I checked my WhatsApp to see a link he provided which is a voice podcast.
Listen to what Tony Finau said about why he succeeds to be a champion in golf in the recording timed at 3:35 of what his father taught him. "Never Give Up." In my video podcast, you can hear me conclude my talk with it at the end and also quoted it earlier with a longer version of "Never Never Never Give up!"
During the pandemic, I found that I could still make new friends face-face or online. I could do it due to what I shared in my podcast in the above video where I highlighted the something I always seek for in life was 'Interaction'. Watch this video to appreciate how this relationships of interaction improves our health and longevity: It resonates with my own podcast, where I revealed that I had enjoyed good health or never getting sick for most of my lifetime as an adult!

During the Pandemic, I was following the online news to find a property management company online in Facebook that I deduced was very professional and knew the Strata Title Management Act very well.
It was during the Pandemic at its height and I didn't expect the company to be opened but when I was checking out its webpage, I found a communication icon and clicked it. I was surprised that in the chat box was someone responding to me. I was surprised that the person on the other end was spending quite a fair amount of time type chatting with me. Guess possible during the Pandemic, we were having a great conversation for over 2 hours. I thanked the man for his time and said I would try to visit their office when the lockdown would be over!
Well the lockdown continued for very much longer and I chatted online one day again and this is when he was more comfortable with me to tell me his story. He had a major operation on his brain some time ago that failed due to an error by a nurse of the hospital. It resulted in half of his brain and whole same half of the body becoming paralyzed where even that one of his two eyes became blind! I was shocked that he was typing steadily to me and he revealed that he was just using one finger!!! He informed me he was wheel chair bound but was determined to stand up on both his feet one day. With that determination and persistence or will power, he managed to do what he intended to do too and not just be bedridden! This is Joseph Wong.
The FaceBook story of his involvement to help 'Uncle Kentang' above is a manifestation of Joseph's tenacity and will power!

The moment finally came when I got permission! This was on 5 Oct 2021 in our family celebration of my birthday on Google Hangout shared in the brief video below! We stayed up for over 2 hours chatting and catching up with one another with the last bit shared below:
