Hi my lovely readers,

As you can see, at first I started with weekly posts this year, then posting two weeks worth in one. As time flies so fast, I decided that it will be better for me to write monthly.

Well…, although my motto is to always think positive and to talk about positive things. However, this is an exception and nothing to do with being negative. I just want to acknowledge how horrible it would be for those people affected by the horrific natural disasters this year.

I thought that the Queensland’s floods and the cyclone were bad enough, followed by the Christ Church earth quake made it worse and out of no where Japan was suddenly wiped by one of the biggest magnitute of all earth quakes ever and the tsunami. Unbelievable…!

I am kind of numb and do not know what to think anymore. I am feeling really sad for those people affected and all I can do is donate and pray for those people who are still alive to remain safe and strong. If you are reading this, let’s take a minute silent for those poor innocent people who were killed in the disasters.

It will take a long…long… time for those people to recover. Let’s not to forget to help one way or another.

On the more cheerful note, right now I am looking at the gorgeous sunset through my office’s window as I am writing this. I can also see the calm blue sea water that is quite calming to watch, unlike the humongous amount of water coming in land in a rush like what just happened in Japan. So when we are around the beautiful and calm nature, let’s enjoy, nurture and respect our surrounding and nature the best that we can. We need to treat our earth with high respect and love.

If you live in a developed country like Australia like where I am now, we are very lucky especially right now. Billions of people in the third world countries work extremelly hard for very little results. Right now, as I am writing this, my husband is watching a television program about young English people having to work in a cotton plant in Mumbai India and it is extremely interesting to watch.

The program is showing you how hard the Indian workers work on that cotton plant with very little pay while the young English people are not coping with the situation at all. I would not be able to cope with that kind of living standard either and I really feel for the poor people in the world and they are billions of them, yet there are actually some people in power who caused wars and disasters as if there not not enough natural disasters and unfortunate situations already.

I just turned my head toward the television as my husband pointed to the most horrible scene on this TV program about the dirtiest and the worst working condition of clothing factories in Mumbai India. It was absolutely horrible to see how these people live, yet, apparently those clothes end up in our shops with big brands with big price tags. I just can’t believe the existence of that. I hate it and I won’t be buying certain clotes as of now.

This is trouble with our world today. Too many greedy people who do not care enough about the poor. Anyway, I am sure we are not like that and please make sure you contribute towards the poor one way or another.
