An outstanding day

Yesterday is great! With whole day full of meaningful activities.


During morning, I have went to a charity event at some place near Puchong "gua", which is organized by foodstall PBUM. Well, I managed to pull few fella to join which are Junyen, Quinn and Leeyin. They were almost half-buss full of senior citizen joining us too. Which, we called them Uncle & and Auntie in short la.. hahaha. Never wonder that despite they were old, they are still capable of cracking jokes and make the environment in the bus so lively.. lol.

This charity activities was about helping the poor. With the extra foods from foodstall event, we have fully utilized it to help the poor. We are the heading to a place which 'look like Hindi Temple', but actually it is praying buddha too. This place is very important because it play a role as the center of free food distribution for the poor.

When we arrived, we start helping them to divide and arrange the goods properly. They were quite a number of elders already there waiting to receive their 'desperate-need' supplies.

Every invited family will received a set of goods which could ease their hunger for a month. They were rices, milo, oil, sugar, meehon, eggs and alot more.

Now to think about it, I am indeed a very lucky people. The money in wallet that I have that day which I think could buy one set of the goods that are going to be distributed. Not that much money I have, but it could already support some poor family for their one month's meal. Then my laptop should be able to cover their half year meal lor.

See, how lucky am I.

One by one, family on the list was called out to receive their supplies. At first, I think of clapping hand, but no one was clapping when those family was receiving their supplies. This make me wonder. Then it make me realise that, what is so happy about it? Happy because poor people could fill up their stomach for another month? Not that they are receiving award or medals, but they are receiving sympathies from the society. Not that they are proud of it. Not that something they could brag about to other people about how much foods they get from the sympathies of society. Only then, I understand why nobody is clapping.

After that, we pay a visit to that center's store room which used to keep supplies.

When we visited the center's store room which is used to keep supplies, I am shocked.

This storage play an important role to store ample supplies to fill up 200 FAMILIES stomach !

Wow, that should make sense if I imagine that the store room should be big and full of foods. But not in this case. As you can see, the supplies left there, were too little to support that amount of families. According to the person incharge, thanks to us, this month supplies was ample. However, the leftover in the storage is not enough for the following month need. I could only see meehon, rice, dry corn? and flour in that room.

The shoes I am wearing is equal to 100kg of rices over there, and the camera Junyen is holding is worth 1000kg of rice. 10kg of rice is worth rm20 if not mistaken. Now my friends, if you are free, you might as well try to figure out how much kg of rice are your belonging worths... and you would surprise by that.

Wow, we are indeed really lucky to have borned in good family and have no worry about foods till we learn the bad habit of practicising food wastage.

Must always appreciate and finish the foods we eat !

I start to salute Junyen personality for not wasting foods and even help other to clear their foods. That why we often call him bandaraya, Mppj or whatever you could call. haha..


After having lunch at some organic food restaurant which is treat by Uncles and Aunties, we were heading back to Uni.

My house has a mango tree hehe.

And it bear countless of mangos already. So, Junyen and I decided to pluck some manggo to test.
I make this.. and it work beautifully. lolx

So, we manage to pluck 4 mangos.
However, that fruit was not yet ripe despite that its size is big. Anyway, Junyen ate most of it to avoid wastage. Mango dip in soy sauce is actually quite tasty. Due to my sensitive teeths, I could not eat that much of that sour stuffs.

Well, knowing that the other 3 mangos is yet to ripe. I have wrapped it up with newspaper and stored it somewhere till it is ripe..


This is a memorable one.
Merdeka !
During merdeka eve.. 6 of us which combination of 10th coll and 2nd, is heading to Ampang look out point to see firework !

Unfortunately, no firework display by KLCC.. How sad

However, we have a nice dinner at one of the particular restaurant. The service is damn good and the foods is awesome. We have a great view of entire KL too. Just, too bad, no firework display. The place is crowded by people whose also came for viewing firework. What the heck is going on with our country? Out of budget to get some firework show this year ah? Cheh

Thx to Junyen for introducing such a great place to me. It is indeed open my eyes. The scenery is so great. The city light is so outstanding. Come again next time ya. hehe
Most of the photos is captured by Junyen SLR camera ( it tempted me to own one..arrrgh ) . Waiting him to upload to FB.

Neway, yesterday is a great day..
