You are not worth looking at

After a series of non-stop work, training, learning and giving efforts, (and still my diary shows there are a lot more in store!), I just woke up from a long nap due to exhaustion. Sorry if I missed your calls and have delayed replying messages. Thank you to all the congratulatory messages of my 10 year business anniversary this April month for the M & Z Empowerment training business. Time flies! I am reading through some messages in my inbox and I had some people asking why I have been posting only pictures lately and asking for my usual sharing of motivation and reflections. 

OK, I will share first on last Sunday’s streetfeeding experience. While we had our volunteers split up to distribute foods to various locations, Zeal Zainuddin and I took charge of taking care of the rest of the remaining foodstuff. We had some of the homeless people come over to pick up the foods. One lady came over when no one else was around and spent some time to talk and share her life story and opened her heart out to both of us. After reflecting on the incident, Zeal and I discussed about how people generally just want to be LOVED & RESPECTED. By the simple act of us regularly visiting, making eye contact and acknowledging the people who otherwise in their lives often feel unloved, we get connected. They have a sense of hope and worth. There are no walls built regarding status, or worldly titles that often place one person’s life higher than another. Unfortunately, I see this even in families where due to some level of “success”, one person is deemed more worthy than others. Guests with a certain “status” are given better treatment than others. Clients with more money are given more respect. Let us all reflect on this a little deeper. Why does this belief happen? What led to these beliefs that cause people to step on the weak? Do these beliefs serve a higher purpose? What can we do to change these?…Sleep well everyone. Spread LOVE & RESPECT.

HEY YOU! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ?!

I was at the airport and was deeply disturbed by the way a group of foreign workers were treated at the airport. Looking at the men and women waiting in line to leave the country, I can see that they have had a rough life. God knows what they have gone through to leave their homes and find work overseas. It was 5am in the morning. Everyone looked tired but they had to face harsh words, talked to in a condescending manner by the officers and threatened loudly in front of others. I often share pictures of some people living luxuriously yet the people around them are living in poverty. It does not help that not only are they poor, the people capable of helping sometimes ignore and worse, make life more difficult for them. There is so much HATE. I reflect a lot on what I see. I see these imbalances in society. I see them in organisations. I see them in families. I see hurt people walking around hurting others intentionally. Sometimes publicly. Sometimes privately. Its time to stop this once and for all. I am working with a few organisations to start raising the level of awareness and LOVE & RESPECT in our society. If you would like to be a part of my team and to spread the message of LOVE & RESPECT, do PM me. START NOW! SPREAD LOVE & RESPECT!
