Time goes? Perhaps no. Time stays, we go. Agreeing with English poet Austin Dobson, I think time makes us old, makes us change, makes us transform but time never change and it only remains as present.
We have come to April, where many bEEautiful tropical flowers blossom everywhere in Melaka and attract many flower lovers. The colorful flowers have made Melaka vibrant and attractive especially the bougainvilleas (also known as paper flower) flaunt their extravagant beauty for all to see.
Ever since my last overseas trip to Thailand last year, I’d been thinking for another trip to one of the South East Asia countries. My dream came true and I was invited to join a trip to Cambodia with some friends in early April. Even though it was a short 3 days 2 nights tour, we enjoyed natural beauty, spectacular view and warm friendly people of Khmer.
On the other hand, we are still keeping track on the news of Japan after the triple tragedy. Since March 11, few aftershocks have continued to rattle the nation and have renewed concerns about the fragile condition of the Fukushima nuclear facility, which continues to leak radiation into the ocean and atmosphere. Let us pray for Japan and what they are going through.
Sharing some shots taken in Melaka last month and early April. Last photo here was taken in Cambodia at the Siem Reap International Airport and I will post more photos of the Cambodia trip shortly.
May all beings bEE happy.
Dear friends, thank you for your kindness and support. We’ve just made a third transaction of USD150.00 to International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies for Japan quake relief.
Through the generous contribution by all friends and family, we have collected a total amount of more than RM1,300.00 to date for the relief effort in Japan. Thank you for your generosity and kindness by helping those are suffering from the devastating effects of the recent 8.9 earthquake and tsunami.
Together we hope and pray for all in Japan as well as all other countries to be affected by this event and that the recovery will be swift and complete.
In addition, another 7.4 powerful quake just struck Japan yesterday. Fortunately destructive tsunami is not expected according to The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
May all beings be happy.
It appears almost too good to be true, but this little dog has been found alive and well adrift at sea, an astonishing three weeks after the tsunami that devastated Japan.
Members of the Japan Coast Guard came across the dog on Friday as they were conducting an aerial search of the area.
Local television showed pictures of the dog scampering around the roof of the house before it disappeared inside through a hole in the roof.
Rescuers had hoped to find more tsunami survivors living inside the house but after tearing the roof open, it was found to be empty apart from the dog.
Despite its three weeks at sea, the medium-sized brown dog seemed to be in reasonably good condition considering its ordeal.
The discovery of the dog is a rare glimmer of hope in Japan where thousands of people are believed to have perished in the disaster.
The nation is now gripped by the ongoing nuclear threat posed by the unstable Fukushima plant as workers continue to battle to restore vital cooling systems damaged by the quake.
Thank you friends for your kindness. We’ve made a second donation of RM400.00 to Taiwan Buddhist Tzu-Chi Foundation Malaysia.
After the 8.9 quake and subsequent tsunami, the people of Japan are short of many things, such as petrol and food. The members of Tzu-Chi will overcome all kinds of hurdles and deliver hot food into the hands of those in difficulty. The money donated will be used entirely for emergency relief and for long-term construction as Japan clears the rubble and prepares to rebuild.
Thank you and may we keep Japan in our prayers. We will make third trasnfer soon and friends who are wishing to donate, kindly contact us.
May all beings be happy.
