Hi, people say if you write less in a blog, readers will forget you. I personally do not think so as most readers are my fans and supporters ! So this page is for you.kekeke
Some of you who are members of Amithaba Buddhist Centre (ABC) would already have received the flyer on the sponsorship of oil lamps and flowers. If you wish to make a donation , do so and one each for one family member.
Come...... 28 May 2010 is Vesak Day and as usual, the day before and at around 3pm or so, I will be there to look around and see how I can support (buy things lah, shopping) then on the actual Vesak Day, usually at 6am I will be there to take my 8 Precepts and then I go home so you won't be able to see me on the actual day, yeah ? (hehe cause I got no make up on ! )
Last year, on Vesak Day, it rained so heavily at 5.30am and I was stranded.......at that time, I really wished I brought an umbrealla with me. But I prayed and waited till the rain gets lesser and then I was able to use my bag over my head and walk as fast as I could to the tent. This year, I shall come prepared with my pink umbrella. It will probably be the only time, I will bring one.
Why ? I don't want to carry an umbrella ? is because I want to have total faith in the Buddha, that Buddha can help me and guide me thru. Hmmm......maybe I should'nt bring one this year too. Ah ! let me "lum har" (think lah in english)
On Vesak Day itself, what is most Auspicious is to offer a candle to Buddha and pray and usually what you pray for will come true. Ivan (age 20) got into NTU to study Media (Animation) and Alex (age 18) got into Singapore Poly, Mechanical Engineering too. Both times before their exams, I prayed.
