Inspiring moments

We never get what we want,
We never want what we get,
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have.
And still we live & love.
That's life...

The best kind of friends,
Is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with,
Never say a word,

And then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

It's true that we don't know
What we've got until it's gone,
But it's also true that we don't know
What we've been missing until it arrives..

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back!
Don't expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their heart,
But if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
An hour to like someone,

And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seems bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile!

May you have

Enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
And enough hope to make you happy.

Always put yourself in others' shoes.

If you feel that it hurts you,
It probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people
Don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for
Those who cry,
Those who hurt,
Those who have searched,
And those who have tried,
For only they can appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives.

When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You're the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.

Note : Thanks Auntie Tey for forwarding my such an inspiring words.. Must appreciate everything that we have..

Kantha Bopha Children Hospital

I have been to Siem Reap, Cambodia from 15-21 Jun 2011.

What can I say about this country? It is a very poor country, with lack of facilities. Daily household income is as low as US$0.50 (~RM1.50 per day). Imagine that!!

These places will come into tourist's list when visiting Siem Reap:
  1. Angkor Achaeological Park, which include the famous Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Phrom (where Tomb Raider is being filmed)
  2. Tonle Sap Lake, perhaps the biggest Lake is South East Asia
  3. Floating villages, eg Kampung Phluk, Chong Kneas..
Well, there is a great place that I would like to share, that is the Kantha Bopha Children Hospital. I visited Jayavarmann VII together with my friends (4 pharmacists, 3 doctors, 1 dentist, 1 nutritionist). What is so special about this place?Dr. Beat "Beatocello" Richner performs free concerts at the Jayavarman VII hospital in Siem Reap on Friday and Saturday nights. The evenings include songs, played on his cello, and talks on the health crisis in Cambodia. The main objective is to create awareness of the current situation in Cambodia. All the children will get free treatment. They get their funding mainly from the individual from Switzerland, where even the president of Switzerland also make few trips to visit the Hospital. All this is done not for profitable reason.Problem that they face are:
  1. Poor families
  2. Lots of killer diseases (dengue fever, thyphoid, tuberculosis, malaria, etc..)
  3. Lack of funding
  4. Lack of blood
  5. Lots of poor quality drug (maybe they dont have bioequivalance to test)
I hope my blog reader can donate some money (even RM10 will help). Kindly visit this website

I have donated certain amount of money and also blood during the trip. 350cc of blood is all they need to help a few kids there.

Below are pictures of 3 male donator from Malaysia.
After visiting that place, it reminds me of appreciating the things, the people, the life that we live currently. Stop complaining everyday. We are much much better than people there.
