Year 2019 - A New Dawn For Me

Times flies so fast and I am glad to put the difficult days behind now. All humans may have endless of problems just like the waves of the big ocean. They come and go daily but my problem lasted the whole 2018! It was not that I lost my job but I still went to work at my office daily without getting paid. Goodness, it was really so tough and it was a mind over matters thing to endure. My poor wife suffered so much having to 'keep me alive'. I am eternally grateful to her for all her kind support. I have promised myself to bring her to a new place to relax this coming Chinese New Year 2019.

I have made simple resolutions for myself for this new year. I would make better changes to my lifestyle and continue to help the homeless wherever I could. I would eat lesser meat and go on vegan meals as often as I could. I need to spend more time to focus on my Tibetan Buddhist cultivation too.

I received a text message from the DAP Chat Group of my neighbourhood to help deliver newspapers. I responded when I saw hardly anyone could find time to help. This group was active since the time when YB Lim Lip Eng was the MP for my area. I followed that MP around the markets before elections to give out Rocket flyers. We both got earful lashings from many frustrated residents instead. That MP was so tough and put up a brave face to smile at everyone. He narrowly won that elections. During the last elections, that party swapped the candidates and sent YB Hannah Yeoh to represent Segambut area instead. This tough Iron Lady had huge rousing support at all her ceramahs that jammed the streets for miles. Naturally, she had a Big Landslide Win!




It was a surprise morning when I arrived the park nearby home at 7.30am. Our Member of Parliament was already there with her team of working staff. Today she is also our Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development yet she always found time to meet our rakyat everywhere!!!



Our Deputy Minister YB. Hannah Yeoh gave out CNY oranges to all the morning joggers while I gave out all her "Rocket Newspapers".



Goodness! I was the only 5 volunteers from my whole neighbourhood to help distribute the Rocket Newspapers. It was a working Friday morning, so I don't blame my neighbours who have full time jobs.




So many people, both young and old ones came to thank YB. Hannah Yeoh for making the big changes to our previous government. Hundreds of people wanted to take photos and our smiling MP obliged everyone!



I spent 2 solid hours with YB. Hannah Yeoh's entourage and had a good opportunity to hear her speak so well with all the facts & figures in her back hand. She is really very tough and strong minded to convince me that I must render support to help their back room scenes. Together we all can make changes for a better country for everyone & the future generations.
