my weekend was a colourful one..not because it was among one of the greatest weekend i’ve ever had but because i was so busy finishing it up..hu~i want longer weekends but i don’t want to wait until retirement days to have everyday as weekends..huhu..the ungrateful me..please don’t punish me God..i’m just complaining but i don’t mean it..trust me =)
so there was this asian price market if i was not wrong..held in the nearby church where there were a few stalls put up by the asians as a means of promoting their countries..there were also some good traditional performances and of course that’s why we were there at the first place..i saw a malaysian stall that night but i don’t quite know who set it up..it was set up by a few chinese people but i don’t know who they were..i should’ve made a few aquaintances shouldn’t i..?what a wasted chance..at least they have the initiative to set up the stall on behalf of the malaysians..thanks guys..
owh, i didn’t have the pictures of us while performing the zapin but i have a few pictures post performance..haha..it was hillarious..we learned the additional steps just a couple of hours before performing and as an amateur, you know what to expect from me..haha..at least i didn’t spoil it alone~thanks atik for not leaving it all to me.. :p
i have problems uploading more pictures so i give up now..some pictures are not with me either but i’ll put them up later ya..but i still want to share something here..i read an article randomly from the internet when i came back from town this afternoon..it’s obama’s speech i might say..in this article, he expressed his love towards his two daughters and reflected on his part of life that was not similar to his daughters’ lives..he grew up without his father since he was two and he knew exactly how bad it felt and how hard it was for him to grow up without a father figure in his life..he then concluded a few things upon what fathers should be and i was so touched for what he said..so i quote:
“I came to understand that the hole a man leaves when he abandons his responsibility to his children is one that no government can fill. We can do everything possible to provide good jobs and good schools and safe streets for our kids, but it will never be enough to fully make up the difference”.
“That is why we need fathers to step up, to realize that their job does not end at conception; that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child but the courage to raise one”.
and i was driven to remain silent and keep thinking when i read this:
“It is rarely easy. There are plenty of days of struggle and heartache when, despite our best efforts, we fail to live up to our responsibilities. I know I have been an imperfect father. I know I have made mistakes. I have lost count of all the times, over the years, when the demands of work have taken me from the duties of fatherhood. There were many days out on the campaign trail when I felt like my family was a million miles away, and I knew I was missing moments of my daughters’ lives that I’d never get back. It is a loss I will never fully accept”.
I think obama is a very good father..and i’m very impressed for what he said and i know..he really means it..and now i’ve realised how ignorant i’ve been before that i failed to realised what a huge responsibility that my father carries with him..hu~*kagum kt ayah kjap* to future fathers, i recommend you to read this article..
owh..to some dear friends who involved in an accident very recently, i feel so sorry for all of you and i pray you’ll get over the trauma and get well soon..
