God answered my prayer!! Amen.. praise the Lord!.. my aunty was in town just in time when I'm feeling homesick.. so.. I spent the whole weekend with her.. *giggles*
My aunty was actually escorting the one and only representatives from Sabah for the Pertandingan Abilympics Kebangsaan : Lukisan.. this event was held at the Balai Seni Lukis Negara..
It was a 2-in-1 experience for me as this is the first time I entered Balai Seni Lukis Negara ( though' only a few steps away from my residential college.. aah, pity me!) and then being able to see, for the first time also this type of competitions.. (first time also hearing the word "abilympics which originally came from the word "ability).
During this competition, I can see many types of OKU.. and there's this.. ooops! two actually,. one participants with no hands, which he used his leg to paint and draw on that time.. and the other one.. with no hands and legs at all.. and he's using his mouth to paint and draw.. TOTALLY AMAZING!
Since we were having the Community Rehabilitation subject the previous year., I recognize some of the faces during the event.. such as the MCR president.. (which he did came and gave a talk in our class) and some of the students from PDK Sri Kundang ( which we came and gave a demonstration to the community there).. aha! now I feel much .. much grateful being a OT student..
I'm not much of an artistic person as I don't have the talent nor ability to interpret the meanings behind the paintings but it was all awesome!! pheww! I guess, even a normal person take a longer time to create such a piece..
|one of the participants.. he's ok with me taking picture of him while he's drawing..*see the painting*.. he wins 2nd place.. congrats Mr!|
Oh ya! besides drawing competition, a photograph competition was also being held.. both the winners for the 1st and 2nd were from Sabah.. *proud to be Sabahan for a moment~haha!*.. I know this one sounds funny but when we the Sabahan who came at the competition .. went to see the photos...(of course la the 1st and 2nd one).. the pictures was taken at the Philippines Market..(yg sana pasar pilipin dkt CP tu ba.. astaga~!nda sangka2!hahaha~).. and then .. the 3rd winner for the competition.. a handsome,tall, young man!. ( huh! melted for seconds.. haha!)..
|see the pictures!|
OKU, is no longer known as Orang Kurang Upaya.. It is know known as Orang Kelainan Upaya.. I like the second one better.. *totally agree*.. these people, though' they don't own as what we, normal people have.. but God is fair that they have other special abilities that even we don't and sometimes just dying to have one..
Then, we should always be grateful and thankful of what we have now.. appreciate the gifts of God.. because there are people out there who may not as lucky as us.. and one day, who knows.. we might lose them..
|WINNER..the artist is the one I've mentioned earlier ( drawing using his mouth).. he gets to go to Korea.. representing Msia.!|
okay! the real business finished already.. now it's time to go for jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallaaaan-jaaaallaaaaan..haha!..seriously, we traveled most of the time by foot.. *so tired eh!* then, yesterday,.. we were out early in the morning until almost midnight.. wah!.. of course la.. sight seeing with shopping..haha!
|ice cream before she heads to the airport. huhu~|
then today, my aunty went back.. huhu! feel the homesick come creeping inside me again.. I hate it.. =(..
*okay.. distraction pls!!!*

* Dear Lord, I pray for my brother. Shower him with your blessings on his special day which he turns 29. Grant him with good health, courage and strength to live his life to the fullest. Amen.*
