The children in Cambodia has a brighter future, because someone from thousand miles away is willing to take a step ahead and make a difference, and inspire others to do the same way to make this world a better place.
This is what I call "Unconditional", giving without asking for return.
I thank Honey for being a caring, loving, committed, responsible and beautiful woman, her love is just like honey, enriched hundreds of lives.
I'm, very honored to be her friend.

The 2nd Art Auction & Exhibition on 15th May 2010 has been so successfully organized. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has jointly made this event such a great success.
I was so excited and too happy on that night until my mind became blank when I was standing on the stage even I was accompanied by Owen, Mandy, Belle and Adrian. Thank you so much to Owen in guarding me to start my speech but yet my speech was incomplete. I wish to say more but I was too excited.
So many thoughts have come to my mind that night. My eyes were well with tears when I look at the crowd, looked at our lovely celebrities, all volunteers who has comes and the warmth feelings inside Penang Village.
I was thinking of my dad who I wish he can be with me in this wonderful event. He has once against me into art. He told me that ART cannot make a living, ART cannot make money. Now, he is so happy and proud of me. Art allows me to give my time and sharing my artistic skill with the Cambodian children. With ART, I’m having lots of happiness that money couldn’t buy.
On that night, I missed my dearest grandma deeply. How I wish she could see me standing here, but she is no longer with me now, I can’t share my stories and happiness with her any more. But I know that she is looking upon me now and smiling. I remembered once she was following up with me on my 1st Charity Art Exhibition, I will never forget her sweet smile when she was listening to me. I missed you, Ah Poh!
Missing my grandma, I am now recalling that I had once organized a small skill charity & exhibition at my art centre in the year 2007. The small fund was raised for Maha Karuna compassionate home located at Taman Midah, Cheras, KL.
In this journey of giving, I received so much. I received so much of joy and happiness when I step into Colors Of Cambodia. I could see so much of sweet smiles in return when I gave away the party pack to the school children. I received lots of friendship from everywhere, I received lot of new lessons in life to learn. Along with what I have gained and it became a great opportunity to organize this meaningful event.
At the same moment, I’m thinking of Cambodian children bare foots, their innocent eyes, their living and life, I learn to appreciate my life better. This journey into joy & peace is to create awareness and the joy of giving in the lesser children. The underprivileged children of Cambodia learn that they too are in the position to give. By giving away their art pieces, they receive care, attention and monetary assistance in return. This also becomes a good opportunity to educate our local children to be generous and to help others in need by sincerely contributing their skills and efforts in the form of arts.
So much to share and so much to tell and no words could express my appreciation to everyone.
A very BIG THANK YOU to all of you who has jointly holding my hand into this journey, and may all of us be blessed with blossom of happiness and peace.
Love, Joy & Peace
Joy and Peace to All,
Joy, Peace, Happiness, is all creations of the mind. They don’t depend on outward conditions. They depend on INNER conditions. It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy, joyful and peaceful or otherwise. They are what you think about them. (Dale Carnegie)
This 2nd Charity Art Auction and Exhibition is held to raise much needed funds to benefit 2 worthy causes i.e. Kinrara Metta Buddhist Society Building Fund and Colors of Cambodia. Both these organizations are harbingers of Joy, Peace and Happiness.
All beings are interconnected. There is none who come here on their own. In this journey of LIFE let us sow seeds of happiness, joy and peace to others far and near, seen or unseen, friendly or unfriendly.
In GIVING we RECEIVE. How so? We receive inner peace and happiness which leads us to a healthy mind and body. In giving and sharing we receive gratitude and blessings. In giving we receive many happy smiles and pure rejoicing of countless mind and hearts. In giving we receive large doses of Positive Energy directed towards you in unseen waves. And the list goes on………
With folded palms and joyful heart I thank each and every one for giving with joy and peace.

The staff and I at Colors of Cambodia greatly appreciate the efforts of those in
As a child, I spent hours and hours drawing, exploring and creating. My future started then. The Colors of Cambodia project is an attempt to give to children this same opportunity… an hour or two or more every day or week, playing, with art, letting the possibilities grow.
There is a potential greatness in

Joy & Peace to you!
Three organizations, namely Honey Child Development Centre (HCDC), Kinrara Metta Buddhist Society (KMBS) and Colors of Cambodia (COC), have joined hands to organize this charity fund raising event to benefit two worthy causes. The first is to help underprivileged children in Siem Reap, Cambodia to nuture their artistic talent, and secondly to raise funds for Kinrara Metta Buddhist Society - Building Fund.
Our first Charity Art Auction & Exhibition was held in the year 2008 with great success. We envision to continue this mission of helping underpriviledged children as well as inculting wholesome family values and youth development programs that leads to peace within and world at large. This year’s event will be held at Penang Village, Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur from 15 May to 13 June 2010. The highlights of the event will be the Gala Official Opening Night on the 15 May 2010, which will be graced by 200 VIP guests.
With great joy and peace we humbly request generous sponsorship in form of cash and in kind from your esteem company. By this selfless giving, you too will be part of this journey into joy and peace. We joyfully look forward to your kind participation, we will much appreciate if you could kindly confirm your contributions by 30 April 2010.
