Always in our prayers, MH17 & MH370

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Too painful. Simply too painful. Tears flow freely like a stream as I read & watch through the news on flight MH17. But I know my pain is nothing like the pain of those who have lost their loved ones in this unexpected tragedy. Barely 4 months after the mysterious disappearance of flight MH370, we are hit again by this devastating news. What makes it even difficult to bear is the fact that it is shot down by a missile. Such inhumane act that I am lost for words.  

298 lives lost just like that in which 80 of them are innocent children. Most looking forward to coming home after many years being overseas. Some looking forward to an exciting holiday. Some are just doing their job. And suddenly their lives are taken away, forever. Simply heartbreaking. My heart & prayers goes out to their families & friends who are in mourning.  

Life is too short & fragile to wait.

It could be any one of us on the plane. It could be any of our loved ones. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. Every morning, wake up & be grateful that you are still alive cause it means God is giving you another chance to live another day. Go pursue your dreams or goals, spend more time with people you treasure dearly, appreciate everything in life & live life with no regrets. Time waits for no one. You could be here today. You could be gone tomorrow. It's all in God's hands.

Don't just focus on the bad. See the good in others too. 

Yes, it is very unfortunate for MAS to face two flight disasters in a year. But let's also remember that the fault ultimately does not lies entirely on the aircraft, incompetency of the crews or the company. It could have happened to any other airlines as well. Because of these two tragic incidents, all trust is gone for MAS. The reputation that they have tried so hard to build all these years came crushing down because people tend to only focus on the bad. What about the fact that MAS have safely brought millions of people to their destination all these years? 

You can't push away the fact that the risk is everywhere.

These two incidents makes most of us very fearful to board an airplane now but when you really think about it, every mode of transport face the same risk. Cars face accidents too. Motorcycles & bicycles face accidents too. Buses face accidents too. Trains face accidents too. Even a pedestrian face accidents too. It is just unfortunate that an airplane accident usually costs more lives than other mode of transport.

"God never promise a life with no pain & sufferings but he promised he will give us strength & help us through it."

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41; 10)

Blog. Revived.

My blog have been pretty dead since...... *searching through my blog archives*......March :3 Decided to revive my blog today but erm....I have no idea what to write so I shall just write whatever comes to mind! Haha! :P

Well, it's almost mid of July. Half a year had gone by in a flash. It's scary how fast time can pass as a working adult. I love that my work is only 8-5pm on weekdays but the truth is, it's boring to have the same routine everyday. I am someone who needs some ADVENTURE! Only half a year & I am feeling like this already? NOOOO! :O By the time I end work at 5pm, my brain & body automatically switches to relax mode. That's one thing that I am good in now. Haha! Previously, as a student, I find it really hard to do that. No matter where I go or what I do, my mind pretty much go back to my study life. Clinic practicals, exams, thesis....all that sounds so foreign to me now! I still don't believe it's only been a year since I graduated from university! I may no longer have the luxury of having months of holiday like a student but I do have the luxury of taking leaves whenever I want to! So it makes travelling easier! :D

Everyone needs some motivation to work and mine is currently travelling! :D Well, it's only right to reward myself after working so hard right? :P

My travel plans with a half a year more to go :

3 days 2 nights trip to Penang : July 26th - July 28th
11 days 10 nights trip to South Korea : September 29 - October 9

So excited!! Totally looking forward to both trips!
