Beyond Vision 2020

Tun Dr Mahathir came to UTP last Thursday and delivered a public lecture entitled "Beyond vision 2020".

He said, in order to ensure the vision become into a reality, the leaders must think what the world would be in 2020. Back in 1991 when he first launched the 'vision 2020', he said that if Malaysia can keep up her economy constantly, Malaysia can be a developed country in 2020. However, by looking at today's economy, he somehow doubt the vision. He said, unless if the system is change, 'vision 2020' can be a reality.

Many factors need to be considered such as economy, demographic, technology and lots more. He said, in coming years, demographic is a serious issue need to be looked upon as people can easily cross borders. Normally, people from poor countries would cross to rich countries in order to seek better life. He said, if we look at Britain today, we can see that the buses and the restaurants are occupied by the Bangladesh people.India and China are the two countries that mostly not affected by this. To dilute the people there, we need double of their own citizen, which is quite impossible.Leaders today need to consider this very seriously for 'vision 2020'.

The technology is limitless making the world borderless. People can access to anything just by a click in their own leisure house. It is hard to imagine what the technology can do in the future.

The environment is another issue.If today, we can't stand the hot weather, what would happen in the future?With the nuclear energy implemented in future, Malaysia has a lot work to do to consider the environment aspect and also the health of her citizen.Where to store the nuclear waste?Like plastics,it can't be throw anywhere as we like.We were proud of plastics long ago,but now it is the trouble.Burning of plastics would only cost our ozone layer depletes.Our mother earth is no longer a safe place to live in future.

One important thing that he stress is, anything that changes around us will affect us.What happen in the west, would affect us too.Thus,many things our leaders should think and do to ensure the future of the young generation instead of fight for position in the politics.

Children Provision Charity 2010-Motorola night

Last night, I went to Chancellor Complex for Children Provision (ChildPro) night since I got a free ticket under UTP Research Paper Contest (UPRC) 2010.

The night was to celebrate and show our support for those children in need with the ticket price only rm5 goes to the children homes. I believe those who came feel their needs of love and support from each of us since they got no one to depend on but from kind-hearted people.

There's one moment that touch our heart when there's a session with Mr Mohd Ridzuan Mohd Yusof and her wife Ms Suriani Sumardi, parents of Mohd Iman Akhbar who suffers hydrocephalus, where the brain contain fluid since he was one month old. I am very proud of them because they show infinite love for a very poor child who loss 70% of movement body. They love Mohd Iman like other childs they have. What touched me the most was when Mr Ridzuan said that sometimes he had to ride motorcycle just to bring Mohd Iman to Hospital Pulau Pinang for weekly treatment since total travelling cost by car can reach rm150 per trip. Why don't people who throw babies be more grateful that their babies are born healthy? Mr Ridzuan and Ms Suriani deserve better than those who are ungrateful.

There were also performance by disabled people.One was a wheel-chaired woman with a paralyzed left hand played three beautiful songs with her harmonica. Second was a group performance with three wheel-chaired people and five others who dance happily. It might not be the best dance you ever seen but it might be the best smile you ever seen. I was smiling to see that they dance happily on the stage because the smile was pure with excitement. They do performance not because they were "used", but I believe they want people to look at them, their talent and strength instead of their disability. They want people to see them and be supportive to them.They really need us.

There was also charity raising where we can buy wishing balloon, where the children in need wrote their wishes for just Rm2.There was one girl who wish to further her study in UTP one day and there was one boy who want to be a chef in future. The money was donated to the children homes as well as to fund treatment for adik Iman Akhbar.

The magic show, singing by Liyana Fizi(Estrella), Vick(Malaysian Idol) and Daniel(Malaysian Idol 2) made the night more memorable.

I learned that we can learn more when we look at others.Sometimes we forgot what we have and focus too much on what we do not have. I wish I joined ChildPro before this because I want to spend my time helping the children. Please give our hand to those in need.

p/s: I wonder what greatness had my parents done to raise their four children especially me who sometimes brought disappointment to them. What ever happen, I will always love them =)
