English Lesson : Than vs Then

We going have some English lessons here.

The English words than and then look and sound a lot alike, but they are completely different.


Than is a conjunction used in comparisons:

Tom is smarter than Bill.

This is more important than you might think.

Is she taller than you?

Yes, she is taller than I.

Technically, you should use the subject pronoun after than (e.g., I), as opposed to the object pronoun (me). However, English speakers commonly use the object pronoun.



Then has numerous meanings.

1. At that point in time

I wasn't ready then.

Will you be home at noon? I'll call you then.

2. Next, afterward

I went to the store, and then to the bank

Do your homework and then go to bed

3. In addition, also, on top of that

He told me he was leaving, and then that I owed him money

It cost $5,000, and then there's tax too

4. In that case, therefore (often with "if")

If you want to go, then you'll have to finish your homework.

I'm hungry!
Then you should eat.


The Bottom Line

Than is used only in comparisons, so if you're comparing something use than. If not, then you have to use then. What could be easier than that?

Universal truth?

I'm 26 this year. Let just say, I've seen the world enough to notice this one similar thing.

I'll try put this as simple as possible. In every teacher/trainer/coach/'sifu' and student relationship, it always seems that the student will excel better than their teacher(or whatever). Check out their coach and the athletes. Check out Simon Cowell. Can he sing? :) Olympics just over, check out the coaches and the athletes, isn't there a big difference? :)

The bible said something about this also. When Jesus was on earth, he brought up a few disciples. He said on :

John 14:12 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
John 14:13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John 14:14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

So you see, God is governing the mankind. Not just Christians. He make this world to run in a set of laws, no matter you know Him personally or not. So are we meant to be better than our teacher? Yes of course. You just need to ask. That is just one of the perks of knowing God personally. :)

Just some thoughts

There is this 'game' called 'Lie detector test' on MIX.FM every morning. Ever since it started 'scandals' have surface thru the national radio,which is quite interesting actually.

NOTE : I didn't say enjoy seeing people falling, but I say it's interesting. Anyway that's not the point here. The point is this idea came into my mind. Why not strap both Anwar Ibrahim & Saiful to the chair? It is said the lie detector machine got very high accuracy(some say 100%). Instead wasting tax payer money and time. Right? Maybe through this test, it can ease the police in finding new evidence(reverse engineering, anybody? :) ). Instead of pointing fingers and swearing to the Quran and whatever, I'm sure this is a much more faster. And I haven't even touch on Altantuya case. So what say you? :)

Here In My Home

Not to say I'm bias or anything, I seldom listen to local songs but this one caught my attention. A song that promotes good cause should be shared. Good things are meant to be shared. Just to say that I'm proud to be a Malaysian although occasionally we amused ourselves with politician saying statements that fits a 3rd grader. Anyway here is it enjoy. Oh ya.. check out their site too

Malaysia is changing. Its changing for the good. God bless Malaysia.

Bila takut hantu ingatlah Tuhan

It's been sometime since I've posted here. A little update of myself, I've been very busy lately, busy with work, new house renovation and of course my humble wedding day. Woo.. very exited on what is coming around. :) Anyhow, this post is not about me.

There was this night where me, Abby and 2 of my friends were having dinner and was talking about spiritual world and ghost stories and about how some of us fear that kind of "thing-you-know-what". And in the midst of the conversation, Abby said something that caught my attention,

"When you fear of hantu just think opposite, think of Tuhan!"

And that is like the word of the truth at the moment. I burst into laughter but yet can't agree more on what she said. And I remember that there is a verse in the bible that says, "He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world"

So when you, anyone of you who have God in your life, there is actually nothing much more to fear because Jesus who is in you, is greater than the devil who is in the world. :)

And I heard a real story about how a non-believer of Jesus dreamt about a ghost/devil(whatever) that is oppressing her. Though its a dream but it felt so real to her and there is fear all over her. The funny thing is that she didn't cite the chanting that she practice in her faith but she called out the name of Jesus Christ. And she woke up from her dream feeling not fear but peace. Indeed,

...He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world[1 John 4:4]

On the other note, I got this link from an email. It really really cool link about Chinese characters and how it relates to God. Well, I can't really read or write chinese, but I do recognize a few of the characters. Very very cool link. Click here to go o the link. Enjoy :)
