Yes, on this auspicious day of 10.10.10, I wanna do something special in my blog.

We often talk about dissatisfaction in life. But, "What Changes You Wanna See in This World?"

"I want more youths today to realize that they had the power to move things differently and make changes in different aspects. Youths in Malaysia and in Korea (probably Asian countries) are too shutting themselves into a small world, most just realizing their duty as a normal student (study, get good grades etc).
Youths are the most important assets with fresh ideas, able to move them into solutions,provided they believe they have the power to make changes."
