hiya...

ok, just finish all my pending post and now it is time to write a proper post. i admitted that i have been getting very very lazy to write post except for moolah.. haha. so sorry guys cos when you skip over to my post and all you can see is some crap post. ok, my resolution this year will be that i hope i can balanced out between all those paid posts and my own posts. (* i am keeping my fingers crossed that i can keep up with the resolution *). ok, enough bout that.

anyway, i finally did something which i have should have done long long time ago. but i keep dragging and dragging. so finally i last wekk i did it. it's not a big deal, but for me i feel very happy i did it. so what is it? hahahha.. i finally signed up with world vision, malaysia and adopted a child. i know it is not much money but hey, at least i really did it. the child which i adopted is a nine year old boy from Hebei, Pingquan, CHINA. previously, i never ever heard of this place until now. from the information world vision gave me, this place is located about 293 km east of Beijing and has a population of 450,000. and their annual income per capita is USD 146 (RM 555) per annum. imagine that!! that is what i will normally spend each month for shopping or buying some useless stuff or pay some bills. imagine that they only have RM 555 per year. i know over there proverty is quite widespread and harsh climate and unsustainable agricultural practices result in low yields. water resources are inadequate and unreliable. i am glad that i live in malaysia. although with some occasional "problems", at least malaysia is still a very nice place to live in.

anyway, back to the child i adopted. his name is Li, Ying Jie and he lives with his parents and a sister. he is currently in primary schools and i saw from the info that he likes mathematics a lot. both his parents are self-employed and worked on their own farm. i wish i can put his pictures up and show u all but too bad, my scanner is spoilt. oh, i think i will try to capture the pictures using a camera and upload for you all to see next time.

if you are able to afford it, why not do it? it is a real blessing to help those in needs where a mere RM50 per month for them can help them do a lot. just spend RM50 less a month and you can do so much for them. i am really glad i did it!! and i can't wait for the introductory letter from him and i think i will buy something for him since chinese new year is coming....
