Charity Musical Fiesta!

My lil' ultraman

I am so relieved and happy now!! 

Definitely am in extremely good mood now that although I'm truly tired but I can't sleep! 

The charity event that I've been planning,  and for the first time too... was a total success! 

Of course I will not to take all the credit because if it wasn't for those lovely people who've helped me, it would never have happened! Thank you thank you~ Those who have sincerely and kindly helped me search high and low for the musical band...thank u thank u~~ Especially to Reva! Thanks for helping with the funds collection! We have managed to collect more than enough funds to pay for their lunch as well as to help with their funds collection to extend their home. The capacity of the place is getting crowded as they are taking in more children.

The event went very well with friends arriving as early as 9am and already warming up the children before the event starts. Although there were a few hiccups before the day but I am just so happy that everything is so cool today! All the headaches and troubles are so worth it when you see how happy and cheerful the home was today.

The band that came was my ex-colleague's bf Adam and gang! They totally rocked the whole place The kids were dancing and playing and singing together with them after warming up with a few songs selected by them. It was awesome!

After playing & singing & dancing, it was time for lunch and the caterer served their delicious food. They had rice with fried chicken & fish plus curry & stir-fried vegetables. A very sumptuous feast indeed!

This experience has truly been an encouraging experience for me to plan more charities & fund raising events in the future. Next round I was hoping to do something for poorer homes in the 'kampung' areas, most probably in Klang or somewhere. Not that I will abandon this home, afterall my lil' ultraman will miss me if I don't visit him and sing him "twinkle twinkle little star". He's so adorable *smile*

Many thank to everyone who has given their contributions; in many different ways!
To Reva who have helped me with the organizing part. You are such a sweetheart.
To the great band who have given us lovely music and made everyone sing & dance.
The two kind photographers who volunteered to give us beautiful photos of the event.
The caterer who gave us delicious food... but of course we paid them :P
Those kind souls who donated food, items, and cash.
Friends and families who came and graced the event with their joy and laughter!
I would say, without every single one of you... this event will not be this successful!

To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle. Every cubic inch of space is a miracle. Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same. . . .
What strange miracles are these! Everywhere . . .
by Walt Whitman

Every moment you remain alive is a miracle. Talk to medical people; they will tell you there are a million and one things that can go wrong with this body of ours at any given instant. It is only because we haven’t developed the capacity for appreciating miracles that we don’t see them all around us. Life is a continuous miracle: not only joy but sorrow too; not only birth but death too.

But the most precious miracle of all is to see the divinity in every creature and realize that the divinity we see in our hearts is the same divinity that shines in all.

Sad Truth of LOVE

These are the sad facts of LOVE;

1. Falling in love with your bestfriend..

2. Falling in love with someone in love with your bestfriend..

3. Loving someone too much it hurts..

4. Choosing to let go of someone you love so much because it's the only right thing to do..

5. It takes time to have the one you LOVE, but just a second to lose it forever, LOVE is bliss until it's gone..

6. Belonging to someone else when the right one comes along..

7. Falling in love with someone who belongs to someone else..

8. Choosing between friendship and a relationship..

9. Pretending to be NOT IN LOVE with someone when you're actually dying to tell him/her that you are..

10. Admitting to be in love with a friend despite his/her imperfections..

11. Realizing that the more you to try to forget, the more you try to fight the feeling, you just find yourself falling in love more..

12. Letting go of someone, and then realizing you will never find another one like him/her until he/she's gone..

13. After so many years of being together, you find out one day you,re not in love anymore..

14. Trying to hide your feelings from someone only to find out later that he/she loves you back and then you realize your chance has already passed..

15. The HARDEST thing about falling in love is believing it exists after love has failed you time and time again..

**Most of the above somehow happened all the time to everyone... but sadly after all the above experiences, we're all still so confused about LOVE.**

The confusion of love is universal and almost always we follow our heart rather than our rational head. Those 'lucky' ones might make it to eternal happiness, with lots of compromising and trust of course. But there are also those who do not make it and get their hearts broken over and over again. Still, we go back the same path if given the opportunity. Everytime.

What is the meaning of love? If love is not eternal? If love is just an illussion? Something that people do just because it's a common practice. Just because it's shown on TV, sang in music lyrics, most highlighted in magazines & gossip columns, on billboards, in self-help conclusion, EVERYWHERE!

It all seem meaningless to me. Yes, I have found love. I have been in love. To one person. The one and only. But, I have also experience hurt, disappointment, downhearted, betrayal, resentment & anger. Of course, the good times brings happiness, joy, comfort & wonderful memories. That is the package that comes with "LOVE". Accept "LOVE" and embrace all that comes with it. I did and thought I would for the rest of my life with my one and only love.

My good friend once told me, "Love is FOREVER. Only partners change"
Once upon a time, my perception of love is being with that one person & only loving THAT one person forever, for the good times and the bad as well. I have never believed in having several relationships and only decide in the end who is the best to love. LOVE IS FOREVER, with that one and only partner.

So what changed now, I asked myself several times.

What changed is my confidence in "LOVE"....

The word 'Love' is such an artificial word. People uses it so freely til it loses its true value. I truly hope that one day I will find that confident that were once so strong in me.

Although, I have lost all faith in the word, deep in my heart I'm a sucker for fairy tale ending.

I still want to live happily ever after with my Prince Charming, whoever he is.

I still want to experience the sweet loving moments with my Prince Charming.

I still want to be loved. Truly Madly Deeply.

Sigh. This is what I meant by the confusion of love!

'The longing of being pampered and loved by that 'special' someone'
