Turbulent Times

The past couple of weeks had been a turbulent period in my personal life. It was in shambles. I thought I’ve been through much worse situations, but there are always unfortunate events happening now and then to get me feeling low. To top it all off, last weekend I had a car accident where I smashed a car in front of me while driving my grandparents and sister. It gave a huge shock to me, and I was lucky that nobody was hurt in that incident. I thought ‘I cannot go on like this’, life can seem unfair, it can arbitrarily cut off our air, but that is a fact of life, and everything does happen for a reason. So I should just go on with it. Forget personal tragedies, I have to get back to doing things that brings meaning to my life. There is no use thinking about things that I cannot have and risk losing things I already have and cherish in life.

So life goes on. Last weekend I presented to my extended family members about the hospital project in Cambodia. We have agreed to register the NGO ‘Hospitals Beyond Boundaries’ to the Malaysian Registrar of Societies (ROS). We now have our own constitution. I cannot wait to get it registered so at last I can recruit people, open a bank account, raise funds and start writing a formal proposal. Thank you to those who had already shown interest to donate and contribute. I will let you know as soon as the NGO is established and the accounts are open. Meanwhile, in Cambodia, due to a few circumstances the land that has been proposed to be hospital site has been changed. We are moving to a much larger land, almost double the size of land previously proposed. But that also means higher costs. This is the last week of my nearly 2 month holiday. I hope I can get everything settled before class starts again.
