1M4U Youth Convention and Concert 2013

Mar 19, 2013 | Views: 1,220

On Saturday (2 March), President of Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) Dato’ Ruby Khong, Khong Jean Mei and Khong Jean Ai were invited to be speakers at the REACH OUT Youth Convention and Celebration 2013. Organized by 1M4U, it was held at the Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus where over 1,500 youths attended.

1M4U stands for 1Malaysia For Youth… a non-profit organization that serves to promote volunteerism and to encourage the youth of Malaysia to reach out to their own community. They have all sorts of programs for youths to participate in… all aiming to instil a sense of social responsibility in them. 

If any Malaysian youth have their own ideas to serve the community, the 1M4U also has a DRe1M fund which provides financial support for youths to carry out their volunteer activities. How wonderful!

At 7.30am, youths ranging from age 17-25 started queuing up. They wanted to make sure that they got a seat in the auditorium! Many speakers from all over the world gathered at this event to share their experience in doing their passion work… one that inspires others. Those who were invited to speak were:

  • Tan Sri Tony Fernandes (founder of Tune Air Sdn Bhd, Air Asia Berhad, Chairman of QPR Holdings and Team Principal of Caterham F1)
  • Dato’ Ruby Khong, and her 2 daughters.
  • Scott Hammell (Illusionist and Guinness World Record holder)
  • Nick Allardice (Co-founder of Live Below The Line, and Asia Pacific Managing Director of Change.org)
  • Pushpa Basnet (winner of the CNN Hero Award 2012)
  • Chester See (YouTube celebrity)
  • Jinnyboy (YouTube celebrity)
  • David Choi (YouTube celebrity) 
  • Ben Ibrahim (TV and Radio Host, spokesperson for DoSomething.Gd)
  • Deborah Henry (Miss Universe Malaysia 2011)
  • Henry Golding (Travel Host, Presenter)
  • Michael Teoh (Malaysian Youth Advocate)
  • Matthew Supramaniam (BBC Boy Soprano)

The Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, came to meet the speakers, and gave the opening speech for Malaysia’s first ever 1M4U Youth Convention and Celebration. He then launched 9,999 1M4U number plates and officiated the new IM4U radio station, 107.9 FM.

Tan Sri Tony Fernandes then gave his keynote address, which I heard from Dato’ Ruby was very inspiring. 

Dato’ Ruby Khong, Jean Mei and Jean Ai were then invited on stage to give a speech for 30 mins. After 20 minutes, they opened the floor to questions… and 5 youths eagerly raised their hands to ask questions which was answered wonderfully by Dato’ Ruby and her two daughters.

I’m glad to see Dato’ Ruby, Jean Ai and Jean Mei participating in events such as this. It not only create awareness about KSK to the general public, but it is an event that promotes charity work to the youths of Malaysia. Charity work has for too long had a wrong perception that it is un-cool or it’s something that only retired people would consider doing. I am very happy to see that the government of Malaysia is placing importance on charity and volunteer work, and most of all, for having events such as 1M4U to re-educate the youths of Malaysia.

Najib wants young people to engage in volunteer work 

PETALING JAYA (March 2, 2013): Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today called on Malaysian youths to give back to the community by involving themselves in more volunteer activities. 

The prime minister said his dream was for the youths of the country to one day join hands to help not just one another but also the community at large and embody in them the spirit of volunteerism. 

“The key thing is you do not expect anything in return. The only thing that you will get is the sense of self-accomplishment and self-satisfaction that you have contributed something.

“I believe if you contribute something and help others, you are going to feel a lot better yourself … trust me. That is the great feeling that you cannot get by other activities,” he said in his speech at the iM4U Reach Out Youth and Volunteerism Convention at the Taylor’s Lakeside Campus, here.

1Malaysia for Youth (iM4U) is a common platform for Malaysian youths to carry out volunteer activities that can benefit communities in need and social groups.

The platform also provides financial support for volunteer projects through its Dana Sukarelawan 1Malaysia (DRe1M). Najib said Malaysian youths must also remember those who had fought and died to keep the country free and peaceful.

“Unfortunately, yesterday we lost two very brave policemen who died in the line of duty so that we can live in peace in this country. These are the people who have made a lot of difference for Malaysia,” he added.

Two police commandos were killed yesterday in a gun battle in Sabah with armed intruders claiming to be from the Sulu Sultanate in the Philippines.

Najib also called upon the private sector to support volunteerism initiatives throughout the country.

“We welcome all the corporate players out there to join hands with us in spreading the spirit of volunteerism across the country. I remember that there was a time when the private sector would reward an organisation that gives back to the community effectively through its corporate responsibility programmes,” he said.

“Thus, I would like to take this chance to call upon the private sector to not only join us, but also to support volunteerism initiatives throughout the country ,” he said.

On iM4U, Najib said they were looking at expanding the list of ambassadors who would rally more youths to take part in volunteering activities across the nation.

“I was also made to understand that the iM4U Facebook page to date has 40,000 likes and 8,000 followers on Twitter. In addition, more than 300 activities have been approved since its inception via the DRe1M fund, with almost RM700,000 given out to fund these activities.

“One hundred outreach centres have been set up across the public and private universities across Malaysia and, in fact, I will be launching the outreach centre at Puncak Alam (Selangor) later today,” he said.

At the event, Najib launched the sale of 9,999 vehicle registration plates featuring “iM4U” to the public. The proceeds from the sale would be channelled to Dre1M. 

The prime minister also launched the iM4U FM radio service on the 107.9 FM frequency which broadcasts various information on volunteer activities in the country. – Bernama

Najib urges youths to volunteer, be selfless

PETALING JAYA (March 2): The Prime Minister called for youths to give back to the country with the spirit of volunteering and selflessness, which were the major reasons Malaysia is where it is today.

“What has made this country great is those people willing to stand up to fight for independence, those who are willing to do something for democracy, those who are willing to fight and die for their ideals,” said Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

He also paid tribute to the two police commandos killed in a firefight with armed Filipino insurgents in Kampung Tanduo in Lahad Datu yesterday.

Najib said the two men from VAT 69 – Insp Zulkifli Mamat, 29, and Corporal Sabarudin Daud, 46, who had served at the Hulu Kinta Police Commando Camp – died in the line of duty so that Malaysians can have “peace and stability”.

Their bodied were flown to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) airbase in Subang this morning.

Three other police commandos were injured, while 12 Filipino insurgents were shot dead in the operation to flush out the 150 armed men, who called themselves the Royal Sulu Army, who had holed up in Lahad Datu for the past three weeks.

The prime minister was speaking at the launch of the IM4U Reach Out Youth and Volunteerism Convention at Taylor’s Lakeside Campus this morning.

Najib also talked about the importance of youth for the future of the country.

“I believe we have a great future, but that future will be even brighter if you young people join in and contribute based on spirit of volenteerism.”

The convention which was open to youths from all over Malaysia had several icons present as speakers, including Air Asia CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Miss Malaysia Universe Deborah Henry and social activist Michael Teoh. 

At the event, the prime minister also launched the IM4U radio station, 107.9 FM which will feature information on volunteer activities as well as the iM4U license plate.

CEO of IM4YOUTH Dr Jake Abdullah, or more widely known as Jakeman also presented the prime minister with the first license plate, IM4U 11, which is Najib’s favorite number. 

The convention will end this evening with a celebratory concert featuring performances by famous international and local artists including Estelle, Jakeman and Skeletore, and Mizz Nina.

    Wow! Fantastic guests, speakers and crowd! Its really nice that people around the world get to share their experiences, reach out and inspire the youth. As always, Dato Ruby, Jean Ai and Jean Mei look good on stage and I am very sure they inspired many with their speech. It is very important to teach and nurture the younger generation so that they will be able to learn, volunteer, help out, reach out and continue to do the same in the future.

  4. Joy on Mar 30, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    It is nice to see our PM and Malaysian Government taking positive steps in reaching out and encouraging the youth to participate in doing more good for the society.

    It is of course very inspiring to see these young and old movers and shakers of today giving motivational talks to the youth because they are the ones who will soon be going out to the world and shaping our future. So it is very important to instill and impart values of care, kindness and generosity so that our society do not end up being just another materialistic nation with no values or care in others.

    Great to see Dato’ Ruby and the Khong sisters being invited to share their inspiring story on stage and to give the youth some wise words of wisdom and encouragement in volunteerism.

    The youth sure related to Jean Mei easily as they cheered her on and applauded to the things in common that she shared. Perhaps Jean Mei will be the next spokesperson in her own right in next year’s reach out? Anyway bravo to all the speakers who have made their lives an inspiration to others!!!

  5. Jay Jae on Mar 20, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Mother and daughters are always together with the things they find passion in. What more when it comes to helping people find solace and a warm meal and eventually meaning in life?

    I personally admire DR for her tenacity and straightforwardness at the same time is blanketed with care and true motherly love. For every outreach there are in society from KSK, you will see that she is there with open arms to give and offer help.

    Her remarkable daughters though young inherit the diamonds of the mother for being caring and super helpful when it comes to people who are less fortunate.

    May they inspire more mothers/families to do so.

    • sweekeong on Mar 25, 2013 at 2:50 am

      Very inspiring to see so many people who turned up for the convention and concert. DR and her daughters are very inspiring. Whatever age we may be we can start doing volunteerism for the society with live in. So much time is concentrate on work alone we always tell ourselves to get a life. Well the answer is here. A life for others is a fulfilling purpose than a life for oneself alone. For the youth now is the better time than no other time. It is great to hangout with friends as a team to help others.

  6. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 20, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    This IM4U certainly looks like an event packed with both meaning and fun. It is nice to have convention like this so that the youth will know where they can go with their valuable time and energy instead of just wasting time on meaningless things such as video games.

    It is certainly nice to see Dato’ Ruby and her two daughters on the stage too introducing KSK and Kechara to a large audience. Through exposure to the public domain, more people can come to know about Kechara and to derive much learning and benefits for their lives.

    There are many great men in India that we are not so familiar with, Mr. Rabindranath Tagore is one of them. He understood how important education to grow good leaders for the country. He also knew that report card is not everything but it is more important to educate the children about creativity and responsibility. Mr Rabindranath Tagore was very selfish, he believed strongly in his passion and he did everything he could to materialise his idea. He had a great care and passion for humanity, fame to him was not important at all.

    Alexandra David-Néel was a woman with the “wind beneath her feet”. She was a Buddhist, Orientalist and writer born in France and dedicated her whole life to studying Asian culture and religion, and sharing it with the Western world. In fact, most of her books focus on practices within Tibetan Buddhism. As a Western woman, her dangerous travel to Lhasa, Tibet, which at the time was closed to foreigners, created worldwide renown for her. Here is a short overview of her life and travels:

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

    The serene and majestic Mount Fanjing (or Fanjing Shan 梵凈山), its peaks towering above the cloud banks, is steeped in Buddhist lore and tradition. ‘Fanjing’ (梵凈) means ‘Buddhist tranquillity’. In another explanation, the mountain received its name “Fanjing”, as an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means “Brahma’s Pure Land”. Mount Fanjing is also called Yuejing (Moon Mirror) Mountain because the temple at its peak can be seen reflected on the surrounding smooth rock on a clear moonlit night.

    Mount Fanjing is part of the Wuling Range in south-western China’s Guizhou Province. Its highest point stands 2,572 meters above sea level and the misty summit is the highest of the entire range. For centuries, both the mountain and the surrounding jungles have been a sanctuary for Buddhist masters seeking solitude in nature. Numerous Buddhist temples are spread across the peaks and slopes, most dedicated to Maitreya and Buddha Shakyamuni. Maitreya, or The Next Buddha, is the patron Bodhisattva of Mount Fanjing.

    In an area of some 120 square kilometres, not far from the picturesque Mount Huangshan, and located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, is a haven that is nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountain. Here, in a verdant landscape of pine trees and walls of tall swaying bamboo, lined with streams, waterfalls, hidden caves and rocky configurations, 99 peaks rise up from the soil and protrude through the clouds. The tallest peak is called Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings) that sits at an elevation of 1,342 metres above sea level. This summit is well known, as are eight of the nearby peaks – Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

    Together, the peaks are known as Jiu Hua Shan (Mount Jiu Hua) or the Nine Glorious/Heavenly Mountains and are considered to be the abode of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, known as Dizangwang Pusa in Chinese.

    Jiu Hua Shan is one of the four holiest sites of Chinese Buddhism. The other three are Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Emei in Sichuan and Mount Putuo in Zhejiang.

    Pu Tuo Shan, also known as Mount Putuo is located on an island southeast of Shanghai, in the Zhoushan prefecture of Zhejiang province in China. Pu Tuo Shan is believed to be the bodhimanda (place of awakening) of Avalokitesvara, more familiarly known as Guan Yin in China. Due to this believe, Pu Tuo Shan gained its place as one of the five holy mountains in Buddhism and flocks of pilgrims visit this place all year round to get blessings.



    During the Tang Dynasty, Pu Tuo Shan became the center of Chinese Buddhism solely for Guan Yin, while the silk road was being constructed and developed. Ever since then, Pu Tuo Shan has been the main destination for all Guan Yin worshipers. Guan Yin (or Chenrezig, or Avaloketishvara), resides as the patron Bodhisattva on Mount Putuo.

    Pu Tuo Shan consists of many temples and monastic institutes, besides being a place of study for the holy Dharma, it is also a place where many people visit for geological, marine and forestry studies.

    Being together as a family builds family unity, creates wonderful memories for children and is a great way to relieve stress and instill family values. Nice to know about Kechara’s land is rich to to grow organic vegetables that is free of pesticides and chemicals. As we know that organic foods are much more healthier than non organic for many reason. It is pricey but rich in nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

    Though organic foods have become more and more popular recently, parents need to start making the correct choices for their children on a daily basis. Thanks for the sharing, had a good view of the fresh and healthy greenery vegetables. Felt very happy for the son who had a great time to work together with his father.

    Despite of all those hardships, Rinpoche had gone through, with Rinpoche having a strong imprint, courage and determination Rinpoche was where today. Rinpoche had to work at Fotomat, for a living to support himself , got robbed , meeting customers and so forth. Rinpoche yet remained happy as Rinpoche could carry on as usual doing long sadhana of Vajra Yogini and Heruka and many mantras.
    Back at his studio apt of Fenmore Apts, Rinpoche could do sadhana and prostrations in the room while his friends will be singing. Not everyone could concentrate with the noise but Rinpoche could. That’s incredible in such a situation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Rinpoche’s encounter happening before during and after Rinpoche met HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Its an encouragement , inspiration for us .

Wow …Rinpoche for seen in all the constructions of Kechara Forest Retreat . Truly amazing, the planning of the hall and those statues as well . Rinpoche would always involved whatever he could for the benefits of all from A to Z. Rinpoche has such wisdom, compassion, love, care and true connection with all of us.. It’s the connection and humanity of a teacher and that is something really beautiful to see.

    Sentient beings come to this present life from their previous lives and take rebirth. Positive karma are created and their imprints remain on the consciousness. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be a monk, since young. He had a very strong imprints from a previous existence , that Rinpoche enjoyed drawing images of Buddha and keen to read Buddhist books. Rinpoche will somehow go and looked for Buddhist Temple to practice Dharma teachings without his foster parent knowledge. Rinpoche could be a movie star but Rinpoche chose to be a monk where Rinpoche would benefit to all sentient beings. Well, Rinpoche had since kept his vows until the last day . Rinpoche did say before that the happiest days of his life was at the monastery serving his teachers.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this short post.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
