Wesak Day 2013 (Morning Session)

Date: 24 May 2013 (Friday)
Venue: Labuan Buddhist Association

Wesak day is the day marks the birth, enlightenment and passing of Gautama Buddha. At that day, it was a public holiday for Malaysia.

As the time I went to Labuan Buddhist Association was around 11pm so the people were not as crowded as at 8am but still can saw quite many people went to there.

As it was not so many people to queue up so wait for my turn to bath the Buddha statue was quite fast. Besides that, at the left and right sides of the place had put each Buddha statue so it also make lots of convenience.

Buddha statue

Each person allows bathing the Buddha statue for 3 times and cannot drench the Buddha’s head. It means that the head of Buddha should not be wet so pouring the water from above of the both shoulder.

If you are first time to join for Buddha Bathing Ceremony, don’t worries about it as at there has volunteers (those who wear pink T-shirt) explain to you.

After the Buddha Bathing Ceremony, I had brought a candle for wishing at the selling counter (as below). At there, you can saw they had sold candles, flowers and fruits which for prayer purpose. The candle that I brought cost me RM10 and for your information that all the money that get from proceed will be channeled into building maintenance fund for Labuan Buddhist Association.

At there, I also spotted some Indian also came here for praying.  

The volunteers of Labuan Buddhist Association were so busy which you can saw at below. They kept arranged the candles that put on the table so that it will has more spaces for next coming people to put the candle. 

A nice wall picture
At there, it had a place which you can saw many empty red packets (as below). The purpose was for you to put the money inside the red packet and put it into a box. The value of money that you want to donate is depend on your ability.

After finished with prayer, I went to canteen to take a look. At there, it had many stalls that selling food such as mee, rice, cake, ice-cream, drinks and many more.

Natural Republic Snail Therapy 50 BB Cream SPF30 PA+++ (Sample)

This BB Cream contains 50% snail secretion filtrate (mucin) that keeps the skin moist and firm by forming a protective film over the skin. It makes the skin healthy and radiant.

I like the beauty products that relate with “snail” after first using the Touch In Sol Snail Mask Pack. I like this BB Cream as it gives coverage for my acne and protect my face from sun because it has SPF30. 

If I not mistake, this BB Cream is under #1 Light Beige as all the information are write in Korea word and I just make a guess as I saw the number 1 at the back of package. This BB Cream will be perfect if it has the brighten effect as after using it, I found out that my face has a little bit dark than before use it.

To Be A Billionaire: My Lesson Along The Way by Benson Wong

This book is about Benson’s lessons, what Benson reads and who is Benson. He was sharing a lot of lessons to become successful or even a billionaire.

Introduced to you a person called Horowitz who was one of the finest classical pianists during his time. He suffered many crippling setbacks in his career. Despite devastatingly long periods of depressions, doubt and many illnesses, Horowitz overcame them all eventually. Watch the video of Horowitz that I found at YouTube.

Some of the interesting words that I found in this book:-

Some people dream of success…While others wake up and work hard at it.

Great successes come from great failures.

The winner gets the award, the loser gets the experience.

Live your day by the clock but your life with a vision!

Did you know the man who once said he got a C for an economics paper used that same idea to start FedEx? Frederick W.Smith

Did you know the boy who was called stupid by his teacher failed 10,000 times before he made the light bulb and founded General Electric? This failure is Thomas Edison.

Bounce back from failure
1st step: Accept that failure and move on  
2nd step: Attain a positive change of mind
3rd step: Have a positive plan and take positive action
