- Shit on a stick (4/8/2021)
Thank you for your dharma and music it has brought me great joy. When asked what is Buddha an enlightened master answers A piece of shit on a stick, or that’s how I remember it, that shocked me at the time and I still think about it. Seeing my community Facebook group complaining about dog poo being left all over the estate, instead of adding to the outrage, I went around with a large bag and picked up as many as I could. They were very grateful.
- Donate $2 at Rona for Children hospital (4/7/2021)
I just donated $2 when shopping today without the cashier’s asking. I wish this is good karma. Can’t wait to receive the album.

I am a master student. These days there are quite a lot of homeless people around my residential area. One day when I was grabbing my breakfast in a local cafe, there was a man outside of the shop, around 30 to 40 years old, begging for food.
At first, I ignored the person, but later I realised that a breakfast probably meant more for him than for me. So, I gave up my breakfast, and invited him to pick a sandwich at his own choice.
He had a nice pair of shoes, but he hasnt shaved his beard for a few days, and his clothes were dirty. Out of curiosity, I asked why he became homeless, and he said, ‘My wife threw me out.’ While I didnt go further questioning, it was clear to me that the lockdown has certainly done something to this family. And then, he requested a hot drink, which I refused, because I didnt intend to get myself a hot drink in the first place.
Before we departed, I told him that everything will be fine. Perhaps things will not be fine for him for a while; I just wanted to spread to him a positive attitude. Next day, when I walked past the cafe, he was no longer around. Whatever happened to him next, I wish him all the best.

I am a Mall worker in Malaysia, one day when I when down to the mall lower Ground 1 floor, I saw a retired man who was wearing an torn pair of pants. So I ask him if he was eat his dinner. The poor man replied he have not eaten. I then gave him so money for him to buy some food for dinner and he say thanks for the gesture. After the Lunar new year 2 weeks later, I saw then same man again sitting out side the toilet at the same Mall where I work. So I gave him some more money so he can have a Happy Lunar New Year. He was happy.

- Filial Piety (3/23/2021)
Today for a good deed I washed my moms car and vacuumed the inside. I also cut down a tree for her in her back yard. I didn’t really want to do it because I liked the tree and it was one that was started from a seed. But I decided to do it because I knew that it would make my mom happy. Then I dedicated the merit to all living beings and especially those who are suffering from the Covid-19 pandemic.
