365 Days of Gratitude: Day 2 – The Immigration Officers

365 Days of Gratitude: Day 2. I had 3 weeks left until my holiday & with the passport shortage scare in the country meant that I have to wake up early. Started queuing at 7am yesterday and made two friends with the guys in the line front and back of me. The officers started working very quickly once the office opened at 8.30 a.m and I managed to get my passport renewed by 12.15 noon. Mind you, I was number 115. Thank you for trying hard to take as little as our time possible, for having a special queue for the elderly, for being courteous and patient. While waiting, I managed to re-read some chapters of one amazing book, meet new people and had a decent breakfast with coffee! #throwback #365daysofgratitude #blessed #countyourblessings #richardcarlson #dontsweatthesmallstuff #immigrationmalaysia

365 Days of Gratitude: Day 1

*Had this inspiration to start a 365 day journey of gratitude where I try to look at things from a better and higher perspective in life. This first post was taken from my Twitter account after watching our national badminton player’s match during the Olympics*

We will never be able to comprehend the amount of sacrifice made on your part, from missing out important moments with family & friends, the pain and struggle of training and injuries, the huge amounts of stress and expectations being put on your shoulders. Winning might just mean an extra medal, a little bit of glory and maybe a day of holiday for some but I think it is amazing that you are able to do that on a day to day basis without giving up. For me, that’s the true spirit of a hero and a sportsman.

Thank you, sportsmen and sportswomen of Malaysia.
