3rd Dec is the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities #IDPD. I am so blessed to be able to contribute my time and effort for a successful event that hosted by the Selangor Cheshire Home in Malaysia. I came back Malaysia to work with Dato Khatijah preparing the event. The team and I spent the whole day making sure the event is a successful one.
Little background of Dato Khatijah, she is the president of the Regional Council of Cheshire Homes and the Chairman of Selangor Cheshire Home. Dato is now at her late 60s, and guess what, she has been in the field for more than 40 years! That is a real dedication and passion. It is amazing that how passion can be so powerful to drive the force behind success and happiness. I admired Dato’s charisma and her enthusiasm to work for the disable community.

As this is my final blog, I would like to share some of my great memory here.
There is a secret garden right behind my office! I will go for a short walk every time when I need some fresh air to refresh my mind. Indeed, taking a break at work can make us happier and be more productive.
My favorite lunch is the chicken rice (khao man Gai), a stall just located at the main road outside my NGO’s office. At first, I did not like it as it taste different compare to Malaysia chicken rice but I started to enjoy it since the next few visits. So don’t judge at first taste/sight!
Shopping street during lunch hour
I am so amazed that every day during lunch time, the pedestrian walkway on the main street will turn to a market walking street! It happened between 11am to 2pm, there are stalls selling all kind of foods & fruits, cloths, cosmetics, toys etc… I love Bangkok!
Saddest day for Thai People
I’ve experienced the saddest day with Thais when their beloved Thai King Bhumibol passed away on 13th Oct. Words just can’t express how deep is the love and respect of the whole nation towards their beloved late King Bhumibol.
Motor taxi is very common here and also a very important transportation for the local. By riding the motor taxi, you can beat the traffic jam and eventually save you plenty of time as you may know the traffic condition in Bangkok can be very crazy. I tried before but I think it is perfect if they can provide a helmet to every passenger.
Night/ weekend market
This is the best part! I think most of us like to go weekend or night market in Bangkok merely because of the huge variety of street food, clothing, accessory, souvenir and many more as you name it at an unbeatable price. I noticed there are bunch of enthusiastic, creative Thai youth actively involved in the business. You can see them at all the newly opened market like Art Box and JJ Green Market and you will be amazed by their creatively for doing business.
At last, I wish my story can inspire some of you to apply for 2017 PULSE!
Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday and a Very Happy New Year 2017!
