A success of Tears

It’s been a while that I did not check on others blog and read something interesting. What so catchy for me this time was Yvonne Foong surgery that had meet it success. For the past few months she had been working hard to raise funds for her surgery and I could said that it also had been a little success as she is able to raised as much as half of the fees she need to paid.

From the start, I can see her hard work on raising fund for herself. She got the talent in writing and she is someone who can contribute to the community. Then losing her would mean, losing some valuable writing that we might have not seen in the whole century. Maybe she is not Stephen Hawkings but then she is someone else who strive to make a good history for herself.

When I was wondering inside her blog, I get the strong thoughts on something else. Last time by the time I order the shirt from her, I’ve been suggesting her to do something like “Support Us Badge”. But then she reply me, she has been doing that before but there is some other people that had been criticize her. To think of this clearly, there is a thousand people who has a healthy body asked other people to help them by getting their badge to the readers Social Website Profile or whatsoever it is. But then when a person like Yvonne herself asked other people to do so, why should she receive some criticize from the readers?

Why would people be so naive on people that is in dire needs like her? Don’t you think that she is better than those who just waiting for other people to help? Don’t you think that she try to earn herself some money to get the surgery or medical expenses covered which is more better than those who only hope for funds by other people?

Maybe those people out there that is in same ship as her did not know how to earn some income. But then this is not their fault. Knowledge is something to be learn and experience and not something to be rejected by our clear mind. And so does she, she got the chance to learn it as a normal person even with some disability and she was able to make it to her fullest. So I’d said, the person who ever criticize her for getting a support badge is the worse person in the whole world.

I’ve been thinking, maybe people think that I’m a relatives to her. But then me and her is nothing but a blogger. I found her interesting blog when I was googling for blog. So we are not related at all. But then Inspired by her hardworks, She should be someone who we should not look down for. She is someone who we should admire for her talent with her disability.

That’s make her special to everyone. Other than Yvonne there is still some out there who is also disable and do become a bloggers. And they are so special and was someone to be admired. So it is just depends on you whether to see them in different perspective. That would be great if the lots of us is not so selfish and would be able to see them.

If you are thinking like what I think, why not spend a little of your time to read her writing.


If you know someone who is like her, just comment on and share the links in this page. Hope people will look on them as more special and not as someone to be criticize.

I start blogging in 2008 but I have never take blogging seriously. And that is the biggest mistakes that I make in my life. In 2010 I almost stop blogging completely. I concentrate on my low paying day job and was too tired to even look at my blog. But then I still keep my blog and websites up. After 7 years, I realize that I cannot only depends on my day job. I could not afford being in the rat race 9 to 5 work and also on unpaid on-call work. Then I realize something, if I never stop blogging in 2010, I will have lots of audience by now. It takes few years for me to realize this mistakes. And now here I am again, creating a good content for you. I hope you can subscribe to my mailing list and also like my Facebook page. Also, if you found that my content is good, please share it with your friend. Thanks. - Papa Shally
