Sister going to Singapore to work

Well, just as I have started a new journey in Kuala Lumpur at Great Eastern, my sister is going to start a new journey in Singapore. She will be working in Mazars. Well, basically, my siblings and I are all working in different states, with my brother (Jason) in Kulim, my eldest sister (Chiew Yee) in Ipoh, myself in Kuala Lumpur, and my sister (Chiew Lian) in Singapore. [arrangement of the sequence based on geographical location, from North to South]
I guess there will be less meeting up and hang out but I believe this is something that we must learn to anticipate as we grow older...

Question of Faith is the Beginning of Faith

Have you ever teach a child about anything before? If you have teach a kid at the she of 4 to 7 or 8 years old, these kids will probably ask you questions when they don't understand anything...compare this to a teenager. The teenagers will probably not ask too many questions. And compare it to an adult....and you'll know...most of the time, the adults already have a prefixed answer to the questions that they wanna ask and if they're asking, it is probably just to show how good they are....
Well, the above statement is simply a generalization of people's characters based on my own bias perspective.
I remembered a friend of my friend who told me strongly about the beliefs that he has....his faith and nothing can ever shaken it. And while I do embrace that part of faith, I believe my mentor once taught me for one to make a giant leap of faith, one must question the faith....in the seek for truth, one must ask.
The question of faith is the beginning of faith...and maybe that is what is meant when the Bible told us to have faith like the little children. Have you ever sit down and ask, "What is faith? What is meant by salvation when surrounding us is hopelessness?

Passion

It was only lately that I start to realize that there are so much lacking for those around us...that at time I think of our own problems which really ain't a problem compare to those who are struggling to find a proper meal on their table.

Why are we so blinded by our so called dreams and ambitions?? If the Christians are right, then we are only here temporary before going Home (Heaven) and yet we are so caught up with our own goals here on Earth.
As much as I am condemning those around me in my post, I'm even more judgmental and critical at my own decisions and choices...I too am guilty of these injustices that I caused my brothers and sisters without even realizing it.

I indulge in wine, beer, high-end technologies and yet I complain about injustice...maybe we have not come to understand the full meaning of it...I too am guilty...

It might be too much to give up everything but if one is willing to give a little daily with the right conscious and knowledge of those whose sufferings are beyond our understanding, perhaps then only will the world change for the better.

The world does not need a hero...the world needs a community of heroes...and maybe it is important to ask the right question, "what can we give to our community? What can we give to those who do not have the privileges like ours? "

And with that in mind, I will go through my day...
