One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.
He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.
The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score.
The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the
youth answered "none"
The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?" The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.
The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.
The director asked, " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" The youth answered, "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.
The director said, "I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.
"The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid.
The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water.
This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future.
After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.
That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.
Next morning, the youth went to the director's office.
The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, asked: " Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?"
The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'
The Director asked, " please tell me your feelings."
The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, by working together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship.
The director said, " This is what I am looking for to be my manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired.”
Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously.
A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead?*
You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.
You would have forwarded many mails to many and many of them would have back mailed you too...but try and forward this story to as many as possible...this may change somebody's fate!
Huhuuuuuu...!!! Escape early from my office just to accomplish my favourite activity. Sorry boss, I went out at 4.15pm :) Almost two weeks not doing any workout. Only eating and driving everywhere. So today I will try to burn more calories than before!
Firstly, thanks to everyone for keep on coming here. To Kak Halima, I'm here but for a while only :). Still not ready to back in track
It is almost a month and new year just a round the corner and this blog was presented with no new update. I am sorry for the lazy me as the life currently are not on my side eventough I enjoy every moment spent. The hectic time mood started since early of December with my working life, travelings, relatives, weddings and so on. I know and aware of the plans earlier but never thought that it is so tiring. I usually easily fall in sleep, really deep sleep anywhere and anytime and need to put Damaipeace aside to find a peaceful time for myself.
Just now I had my lunch packed from Kyros Kebab KLCC infront of my office laptop while doing this typing. I miss doing blogwalking, reading, commenting, communicating with others in this bloggering world and learning new thing.
I'm not smoking. Please do not smoke too...
I hope the hectic time will end soon and the new year will come with a great blast.
If you want to know, this is one of my favorites blog. I keep waiting on the latest entry everyday just to read what has been done by him that day. Normally, new posting will published at night and almost of the postings is originally wrote by bro Hairil to share what he did, saw and went with his family on that day. And amazingly, the places is just all around me and one day I bet that we will coincidently meet somewhere and sometime. Kudos to you bro!
Yeah, from the blog also, I knew that Hairil, a father of his daughter and good husband to his wife is a person that full of imagination. Judge by yourself! Read more on Webcam Exploration (jangan marah aaa.... heheheh)
What do you think?
And the most attractive and effective character created I believe successfully presented via the cute creative Mr. Harry. Who is that guy? Well, he is Hairil's himself in a cute comic character. If you go through his blog, you can find some of his critics was done via comics and I personally quite impress of his talent. If he commercialize the comics I'm sure it will boom all the magazines and newspaper in this country :p. Read further in "Come and Meet Mr. Harry" & "Hey, No farting!"
Another unique about Warlord's Armory, there is also a section for Hairil to personally greet and introduce all his new follower one by one. As his 34th Follower, I was also being reviewed and well introduced in "Warlord's Armory 34th-36th Followers" that was published on 26th August 2010.
As the Top Commentators for last week (actually all the times currently), Hairil always give his comment and thought on my posting. I do really appreciates all of his comment. Deep inside me, you don't know how far I feel. And from this I understand that, while reading any articles in any blogs, try your best to leave a comment. Not only your link will permanently stay there (if not being deleted), indirectly will show your moral support to the writers/bloggers. So, please keep on leaving your comment instead of only in Cbox/Shout Mix/Chat Box.
Enough for this time and I should stop before Hairil will blown away by my words:D

Honestly, I could not remember when was the 1st time I managed to visit the blog. But the thing that make me always remember this blog and I believe some of you also feel the same is this below cool profile picture. It is cool, isn’t it?
I don’t know her full name. I do not know where she came from, where she lives and what she did for living. I just know about the blog a weeks ago while doing my blog walking. And since then, I always saw her keep on commenting my posting and yes, she always drop by here to free her mind, I guess
First of all, I call the owner of the blog as ‘kak’. Sometime I do call her Kak Moh Kembara and cikgu. ‘Moh’ is actually one word from Perak’s dialect. It can be translated same as let’s go, come, mari, jom and others. While Kembara means travel, wander, jelajah, tour and others. The name of the blog seems really suit with Kak Moh as she loves travelling. From her blog you may know that, Kak Moh has been in Japan, Sabah, Istanbul, and other places and that’s why she invited us to go for travelling.
Eventough I newly knew about the blog and Kak Halima/Cikgu/Yong, I often give a visit to her blog. Kak Halima regularly give a comment in my Cbox and in my posting with an honest comment and I feel very comfortable with that. She is so friendly and I bet, she treat everyone the same. These are the characteristics of a blogger who has a good ethical in cyber that should be emulated by others.
I love the way she wrote. It’s full of impression and sometime quite funny as she regularly used Perak’s dialect in her expressions (Its make me smile too while reading heheh..)
“Bebudok ni heran ape ke heh mokcik ni amik gambor deme. Kalau teman tak bukak mulut, deme kat sana pikior teman orang deme! Kalau deme tau teman orang asing, deme sebut "Yabanci" maksudnya Orang Asing. Tapi deme idok ler syak wasangka pada orang asing”
Ok guys! Don’t waste your time any longer. Just give Cikgu/Kak Halima a visit and do not forget to send my regards to her
