What Mum Said

When I was just a little kid, I remembered Mum ever telling me that if you are doing things for a good reason, be it charity or not, there is no need for your to tell other people of what you have done... because by showing it off it'll just mean that you are an attention seeker... and the value of doing good is not really that good anymore...

Of course there is a few times that I would have just told my good friends about the good deeds that I have done... reason being I wanted them to do good too... but mostly I just kept it to myself until being asked...

Anyway I wanted to confess to everyone out there that I am a little bit affected (emotionally) by what had happened in Japan... Partly because I had worked in a Japanese company before... and I had a few bosses/ colleagues who were very kind to me during my service with the company... Though I might looked like I am indifferent towards what is happening in Japan, the truth is I can't help but thinking about how they are doing now because I've lost contact with them...

I just can’t imagine how I would have lived it through, all curled up at one corner in the shelter home... alone... feeling hungry and cold while sobbing for the loss of my loved ones... then blaming myself for having to made it alive everyday... it’s really saddening... So in the end... to make myself feel better, I made two donations to two different organisation who's helping out in Japan... though not much... I really wish I could have done more...
