1st Flash mob!! and visit to rumah solehah....



This is the kodoks that made up the country's first flash mob.. hee hee. Yes Patrick teoh is a kodok too.
From the left is DJ cybersonic, Selambakodok, Lourenzar, Liza and Patrick Teoh. I salute these guys for having the courage to do something good for the ARTS FOR ALL charity bazaar at Bukit Kiara Equestrian centre. It was quite hard to be heard in such a big space, but i'm sure the guys dug in deep to shout out "WEBEK, WEBEK, WEBEK...WEBEK,WEBEK,WEBEK!! Let's help the kids. Let's help the kids!"... I take my hats off to you my fellow KODOKS you guys RAWK!!!
You know, it doesn't take a lot to make your life an extraordinary one. We have one life to live guys, why not live it to the fullest... CARPE DIEM and all that stuff. I chose to have an extraordinary life and you can too. The benefits are amazing for the soul. Some of you might say "Come on chief, it was just a flash mob!", but i say it was people trying to make a difference and they made themselves extraordinary.
There is a song i listen to at the beginning of my day, it's by Heather small (formerly of M PEOPLE) titled 'Proud'. It never fails to put me in the right frame of mind. The chorus goes something like this...

What have you done today to make you feel PROUD.
It's never too late to try...
What have you done today to make you feel PROUD.
MMM... you could be so many people.
If you make a break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel PROUD.
We need a change
do it today....
i can feel my spirits rising
CHANGE
do it today..
What have you done today to make YOU feel PROUD.

I was supposed to just appear and take photos with the people for charity but i was called up on stage to perform and did an AD-HOC version of AH LONG BUKIT BERUNTUNG LIVE.... It was fun.

The following day i had another charity event to do at RUMAH SOLEHAH, which was, to do a public service announcement to create public awareness about discrimination against hiv positive kids and moms. The people i met either contracted HIV either from their husbands or their parents. I learned a lot from Ustazah Lili, the person responsible for taking care of the HIV patients, about their plight to live normal lives in this so called modern malaysian society.

Everyday the patients live with their illness but most scaldingly is, they live in a society who live in fear of the patients because of their ignorance and unwillingness to understand the illness.

Many people say to them that this is god's punishment unto them for being BAD in their lives. That the stupidest bunch of malarkey i have ever heard in my life. How does an 8 month old baby who is HIV positive, BAD? Did he rob the supermarket for pampers, when he was 4 months or something?

Most of the kids there were abandoned by the same parents who gave the them the ilness anyway. it's a problem for them trying to be apart of society via school, playgrounds etc. because so many other parents instill in their kids to stay away from these kids because they are somehow cursed.
I can't believe that there are still people like this, in our Ultra Modern, Islam Hadhari...whatever day and age, that are still living with us in this day and age, today. So spread the word. stop discrimination, increase information. Don't be a katak bawah temurung all ur life.

Dude!! I ENVY you... your life is so happening! Makes me look back at my pathetic life and...shame on me! What have I done with it so far? Nothing significant. I'm a housewife, with a 5-month old baby and 3 months pregnant... Yeah...yeahh...spur of the moment thing! You know what? YOu just inspired me. When I'm done with this pregnancy, I wanna start doing volunteer/charity work. And my children are going to grow up with the awareness that all humans are to be treated equally... regardless of wealth, race, intelligence etc. Thanks Mr Kodok cause I'm not gonna be stagnant no more. Like you said, we only live once.

Hmmm.. Patrick Teoh is also a Kodok! Cool.. I wish I could be there too, but I had family commitment - ada cousin nak kawin..

Well.. chiefKodok, I used to be an active member of Yayasan Salam until work commitment forced me to quit. Till now, I still can't get away to join any of their activities which is normally held during the weekdays..

During tsunami tragedy, an old friend emailed me, asking if I can help gather some stuff like sejadah, telekung, al-Quran, kitchen utensils etc to donate to the Kuala Muda people. So that evening I went to my kitchen and packed away 1/3 of my kitchen stuff and passed it over to my friend the next day. I even spread out this thing to other friends.. but sadly.. very few responded.. well, we can't blame them.. they might have their own reasons..

And the company I work for recently went to a few orphanage centers and we repainted the houses, gave them books, clothes, food etc..
And it's true, it's not easy to get people to involve in charity work, but having done it before, I feel content seeing them smile..
