Pause for a Cause!

Pause for a cause!

Think about what concerns you the most…

Pause for a moment!

Think about what’s important…

Life is not just about you,

If you pause to see what’s around you.

Love, help and care,

Are like water, shelter and air

For those in despair.

Size does not matter

When you share.

Nothing is too petite,

When it comes as a good deed.

My sister has started a “Pet Project” in her self-built business ( ). It’s blending the heritage preservation and giving back to the community – I am proud of what she does. Jojo the monkey, Goomba the orangutan, Cuddly the bear, Maow the turtle, and Dumpling the dragon. These cuties are made of Indonesian traditional fabric “batik” and “lurik” by a group of inspirational Mute and Deaf people from Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. This project helps provide income for them.

Asia at home (my sister’s place)

Keeping your root at home
is keeping your root at heart.
It will be with you
wherever you go.
Your root is your solid ground,
on which you stand tall and strong.
Your root is your pulse,
bringing life into your being.
Love it.
Live it.
