Baby Jacob - Grandpa's Joy

Abang Lawrence Lim loves Sun, Sea, Surfing and latest hobby, shooting video clips posting to Facebook and YouTube.

Congratulations Grandpa 'Abang'! Best wishes to Baby Jacob, second grandson of Dad Damien and Mum Huifen. Greetings too to Grandma!

'Abang' is Lawrence Lim as I call him. My former colleague with HDB for over 20 years. More about him later on the blog.

For now, lets watch the video of Baby Jacob - 3 days old here .

The words of inspiration from Grandpa's personal experience and perspective to share below:
When you are a baby, your parents work for you;
When you go to school, your teachers work for you;
When you start working, you work for other people;
When you retire, you work for yourself;
When you become a grandparent, you work for your grandchildren;
When you kick the bucket, your work is done.
This is the cycle of live.
Enjoy every stage of it and be glad that you have done it well.
Some related quotes about grandma and grandpa:

"I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth".
Erma’s Angel

"My grandfather was a wonderful role model.
Through him I got to know the gentle side of men".
Sarah Long

"One of the most powerful handclasps is that of a new grandbaby around the finger of a grandfather".
Joy Hargrove

"Grandma and Grandpa, tell me a story and snuggle me with your love. When I'm in your arms, the world seems small and we're blessed by the heavens above".
Laura Spiess

"My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there".
Indira Gandhi

The Baby Jacob video clip was created by Lawrence on Facebook. He is a sailing and windsurfing enthusiast who spend most of his time to train young people to pass on his skills and experience.

The Windsurfing Singapore video Lawrence created on 29 May 2010 on YouTube with "Rain, rain go away",the dark clouds was heading towards East Coast. Everything look promising. Everyone was excited and went out to wait for the storm. But someone must have started singing the song and the storm went away here .

He has more than 10 YouTube video posted by Lawrence to his Facebook profile page.

Enjoy!

Here's a masterpiece by Willaim Butler Yeats. It's called 'The Four Ages of Man'

He with body waged a fight,
But body won; it walks upright.
Then he struggled with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.
Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.
Now his wars on God begin;
At stroke of midnight
God shall win.

Cheers.
