19 things I did in 2010

19 things I did in year 2010.




1. Dancing Performance in USM

Finally in my 2nd year, I realized my dream to perform dancing in USM. It's a korean dance by the way! You know I like dancing so much.



2. Became a PPSL (Pembimbing Program Siswa Lestari)

a.k.a. facilitator for fresh juniors. This is the turning point of my university life, and ever since then I became very busy (according to Yee Leng:- busy = got something important to do) :P



3. Grew together with East Summit Wealth Management

Thanks to Xuxu, I met mentor Soon Lee whom advices are definitely worth to listen. Maybe, this is one of the better choices to escape the rat-race.




4. Took up position as a Manager/Director in AIESEC

To be precise, is Exchange Manager in Non-Corporate Relation Department. My amazing group and I had the opportunities to meet people from all walks of life, practiced management theories and are positive change agents =P Of course lots of works, but lots of fun!





5. Elected as NYDP 1/ Vice President of Majlis Penghuni Desasiswa (MPD Tekun)

To be honest, it's not easy to become student rep of 2,000 college residents. A lot of bureaucratic and work effectiveness have to be dealt with, I wish I can still bring changes to this organisation.

What is L.O.V.E. ? Start your LOVE experiences here!

A lot of people have been asking...what is L.O.V.E.?

I try to describe what is L.O.V.E. here so you can get a clearer picture XD

L.O.V.E. - stands for Lifting Others through Volunteer Engagement. It's a Community Service Festival which connects established NGOs and youths to make this world a better place.

1st thing to remember:


When & Where is L.O.V.E.?

Date: 25 January 2011 (Tuesday)
Time:9am - 5pm
Venue: DK Foyer USM main campus, Penang




This ideal all started as my team, AIESEC in USM, dealing with lots of NGOs in Penang. We found out that there're a lot of awesome activities been carried out and making big impacts to the people around.

However, one of the bottom-necks NGOs face is - lack of manpower or volunteers.

Back to our university or college, many friends are saying:" I want to do something to this world...but where & how can I start now?"

Here, L.O.V.E. clicks perfectly.




L.O.V.E. is not just a project, but is also a movement.

It's a movement of all people come together, become a volunteer to any NGOs and you can choose to involve in community projects that attract you the most!

There'll be around 20 established NGOs coming to L.O.V.E., for instance, Consumer Association of Penang (CAP), World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), Water Watch Penang, St. Nicholas Home for the Blinds, Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM), Tzu Chi Foundation, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), USM Green Lung; and many more!

Are you familiar with any of them? If yes, then it's really great! If no, here's the chance to know these positive change agents more!

From issues of environmental sustainability, clean water, animals cruelty, disabled people, children rights to breastfeeding actions; you can take pledges with any of them and trust me, from these organisations you will see world in different perspective.

Besides, there'll be a lot more interesting activities too! Do you want to give Free Hugs to people passing by?

Do you want to share your beautiful photography captures and stand a chance to win prizes?




We're honored to have Director of the Right Livelihood College, the winner of "The Alternative Noble Prize", "UNEP Global 500" - Dato' Anwar Fazal as our advisor. His guidances and words of wisdom are priceless.

Besides, AIESEC in USM offers global opportunities to NGOs too! We can supply high quality volunteers from 110 countries to champion social-economic issues together!




So, what can I do? Wanted to know more?

We wish to hear from your feedbacks and suggestions too!

Questions are the Answers - for a happier life

I'm finally having my 'real' semester break after back from 3 days Youth Defined ETP/GTP in KL. It's an awesome seminar with youth leaders across Malaysia. A lot of inputs and outputs have been produced. Will talk about it in another post. 

Now it's the best time to get some reading at home.  




I've bought this book, like 2 years ago, what Anthony Robbins writes inside never fails to impress me. 

Reading Chapter 8 moments earlier has broaden my perspective and would like to share here with you. 

Many often we are not satisfied on current life, feel unhappy, emotionally unstable and having relationships problems; have you ever thought this is because we ask the wrong questions? 


QUESTIONS ARE THE ANSWERS


If we want to change the quality of our lives, we should change our habitual questions. 

We need to realize, what we do mostly day in and day out, is ask and answer questions. 

Remember, ask and you shall receive. If you ask a terrible question, you'll get a terrible answer. 

So if you ask, "Why can't I ever succeed?", it will tell you, "Because you're stupid," or "Because you don't deserve to do well"

But if you try to ask, "How can I succeed?", "What I can do to succeed?", the outcome will be totally different. 


Google relationships


Questions determine everything you do in life, from your abilities to your relationships to your income. For example, many people fail to commit in relationships simply because they keep asking questions that create doubt: "What if there's somebody better out there? What if I commit myself now and miss out?" 

What terribly disempowering question! 

Sometimes these same people destroy the relationships with more horrible questions: "How come you always do this to me?" "Why don't you appreciate me?" "What if I were to leave right now - how would that make you feel?" 

Compare this with:- 

"How did I get so lucky to have you in my life?" "What do I love most about my husband/wife? How much better will our lives be as a result of our relationships?" 

Same goes to persons who ain't doing well financially.

They ask questions like "What toys do I want right now? instead of "What plan do I need in order to achieve my ultimate financial goal?" 

The questions you ask will determine where you focus, how you think, how you feel, and what you do. 

This shapes your destiny. 

And we can actually change how we feel in an instant, just by changing our focus! 

Stop asking "How come I'm so depressed?" or "Why doesn't anybody like me?" as you will focus on and look for references to back up the idea that there is a reason to feel unloved or sad. 

Try something like this, ask yourself "What are my most happy memories?" or "What's really great in my life right now?". You'll not only feel better but be able to contribute more to those around you! 

If you're feeling really sad, there is only one reason: 

It's because you're deleting all the reasons you could be feeling good. 

And if you're feeling good, you're deleting all the bad things you could be focusing on!

So, start asking empowering question to yourself right now. 

Every morning when you wake up, ask some of these questions: 

1. What am I happy in my life now? 
2. What am I excited in my life now?
3. What am I proud in my life now?
4. What am I grateful in my life now?
5. What am I enjoying most in my life now?
6. What am I committed to in my life right now?
7. Who I love? Who loves me? 

In the evening, ask these 3 questions:

1. What have I given today?
2. What did I learn today?
3. How has today added to the quality of my life or how can I use today as an investment in my future? 


"Some men see things as they are, and say, 
                                                   "Why?" 
    I dream of things that never were, and say, 
                                                  "Why not?"     - George Bernard Shaw
