Life along the River

Published April 2nd, 2012

I once work on this mall behind it, there is a small river and I never ever think about it let alone noticed it, until about a couple of month ago when a friend asked me to join him on a walk around the river.



So I walked there and took notice and it was a real eye opener about life and how I looked at it and appreciate it more. How lucky I am to have my life, I saw families live in a 2x3 meter room, a 2x2 room for rent, people are taking water from the river to bathe and wash their utensils and clothes.



Enjoy life, there's a lot of less fortunate people striving to be in our position and they willingly go through 'hell' to have a meal for the day for their family.
