Time flying damn fast and it again came our department annual dinner on 6th November 2009. This year we held our dinner in newly operate Hard Rock Hotel at Batu Feringgi. The programmes were ok but too bad the food spoilt the night. Anyway, overall was still acceptable.
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: 'Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease'?
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
'The world over -- 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me?'.
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?'
Happiness keeps you Sweet
Trials keep you Strong
Sorrow keeps you Human
Failure keeps you humble
Success keeps you glowing, but only Faith & Attitude Keeps you going...

Children's Day is an event celebrated on various days in many places around the world. International Children's Day is celebrated on June 1 and Universal Children's Day is on November 20.Other countries celebrate a local 'children's day' on other dates. The holiday is simply set to honor children and minors.
The International Children's Day had its origin in Turkey in 1920 (April 23, 1920) and later in the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland in 1925. It is not clear as to why June 1 was chosen as the International Children's Day: one theory has it that the Chinese consul-general in San Francisco (USA) gathered a number of Chinese orphans to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival in 1925, which happened to be on June 1 that year, and also coincided with the conference in Geneva.
Children's Day was first celebrated worldwide in October 1955, under the sponsorship of International Union for Child Welfare in Geneva. The idea of a Universal Children's Day was mooted by Rubab Mansoor grade 8 and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954. Moazzem and Abass helped and contributed a lot in this. Universal Children's Day takes place on November 20 annually. First proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children. It was also chosen as the day to celebrate childhood.
November 20 is also the anniversary of the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959. The Convention on the Rights of the Child was then signed on the same day in 1989, which has since been ratified by 191 states.
Children's Day is celebrated on 1 June each year. It is usually marked with speeches on children's rights and wellbeing, children TV programs, parties, various actions involving or dedicated to children, families going out etc.
My words :
Children are the future of this world. We can estimate how our world will look like 20 years in future by observing our children now. The greatest part is, what we have done to our children formed their personalities. So please role model yourself, our society has lost too much of love, we definitely do not hope situation now getting worse over time. There are also a lot of children out there are struggling for live by battling starvation, natural disasters, wars, discrimination and etc. Every signle person does has their role and responsibility. If you have time to waste on girls, drinks, fooling around, you may want to spend 10 minutes to get know what had these children experienced at another corner on this earth.
Spread your love for more love, to build love, and being loved.
