Pick up for January 2012

25 Jan

First post writing for the year 2012.

Today is the third day of Chinese New Year. Today is the day I do some productive activities, comparing the past few days was mainly with TV and some books. With this I decided to start writing a new post.

Looking back to my calendar of January 2012, I have started to track down all the activities I have been doing for the past 3 weeks. I’ve separated my days into 3 categories:

  1. Focus Day – the day/ time I used to generate income (and since I started my own business on Jan 2012, focus day become top priority)
  2. Plan Day – the day/time I used for planning, meeting with prospects and other marketing activities which contribute to become a Focus day.
  3. Rest Day – is relax a day or in short “ME” day. The day I do the things I enjoy or just simple do nothing.

So as up to today, I seem to have only a couple of Focus Days but I do have a lot of Plan Days, which is a good sign. Because all these Plan Days will lead to more Focus Days in the month of Feb and March.

This year I have made 2 simple resolutions, going to test on own discipline

  1. Gets my room neat and tidy, since it going to be my home office where I’m going to spend many hours here working and of cause sleeping. I am going to keep it in order and comfortable to work by tiding at least once a month.
  2. Exercise regularly – need some catch up on my own stamina. By far I have started to have evening walk with mommy this year. Took about an hour each day from home to gurney roundabout and turn back. Apart from burning some calories, I also spend some quality time with mommy while walking and laughing together.

Shelterbox Malaysia Project seems to be picking up some progress this January.  We finally have our first team members meeting (or rather more like team makan section) on the 7 Jan in Seremban. We have a late dinner as everyone was late or got lost somewhere; but the good news is everyone now is align and clear with our single objective – to raise US$ 100,000 (equal to 100 boxes) to Shelterbox International.

There are many preliminary works for Shelterbox Malaysia to be setup, we will make it HAPPEN.

i have no idea how to go to this place again?





On the following day, we did our first awareness program in District Rotaract Conference at Port Dickson. It has been a while for me to return to DRC, it was kind of fun to be back and at least we have got the message of Shelterbox out to the Rotaract group. Let’s see how we can expand the campaign from there. In the same time, it was a great experience to learn on operating the tent and close it back. Were funs…..!!

I first come to know about ShelterBox was back in 2008, when someone invited me to join the fan page of ShelterBox @ Facebook. Liked the page without much understanding about the cause (just knew it is one of the Rotary Project).

The first real encounter with ShelterBox happened back in June 2009 when i was visiting the House of Friendship exhibition hall in Birmingham England during the Rotary RI Convention. The ShelterBox team has a big boot displaying the actual box and all the aids keep with in the box. The projects they had accomplished and life they had helped & saved for all these years.

I got really touches and promised myself that if there is a cause i must support within this lifetime – it got to be ShelterBox

So what is ShelterBox?

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief aid that send to either natural or man-made disaster around the world. A box is send with full equip of emergency aids for the victim whom has lost their homeland.

Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

Each box bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country via the website

Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distribute boxes on the ground, working closely with local organisations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.

Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has firmly established itself at the forefront of international disaster relief, providing emergency shelter for the people who need it most on every continent.

I would urge whoever is reading this please do also extend your helping hand to the people has lost the homeland due to any disasters. You could contribute a donation via www.Shelterbox.org and tell as many people as you could about this wonderful cause.

Thank you
