World Kidney Day

Here guys, today is World Kidney Day (12 March). To be honest I don't know anything about this disease, but a couple of weeks before while I was dropped by at the CIMB ATM machine to withdraw some money. There's a group of people approached me and explained to me how to help kidney's patients to have the better live in the future. After the long explanation from them, OK I’ll make the story short here. Then they asked me to sign in as public donator. After that blessed afternoon, I almost forget about it.

Suddenly yesterday I’ve received a text message from this organization via phone.’s kind of wake up call I guess. When I think about it back, it’s not a co-incident I bumped into the situation and meet those people on that afternoon. Hurm, guess what? Maybe God wanted to show something about it. Yea, I’m glad I can donate even though it’s not in a big amount.

Haha Hye friends, you also can chip in by participating in their activities or by signing up as participant during various awareness campaigns and fund raising projects. Here some info that I can tell you. Check this out!

Why Do Women Cry? - Happy Women's Day

A little boy asked his mother "Why are you crying?"

"Because I'm a woman," she told him.

"I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said,

"And you never will"

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry
for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.

Finally he put in a call to God; and when God got on the phone, he asked,

"God, why do women cry so easily?"

God said: "When I made the woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort"

"I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children"

"I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining "

"I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly"

"I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart"

"I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly"

"And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."

"You see: The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair."

"The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

Every Woman is Beautiful!
