Cleaning Up Bentong for Malaysia Day | 2016年马来西亚日Gotong Royong活动

(译文请往下阅读) Jalan Chamang (or Chamang Road) is famous for the Chamang Waterfalls, a major tourist spot in Bentong, Malaysia. It is also a winding and shady stretch that attracts many locals who enjoy jogging and cycling here. Halfway down this road is also the entrance to our retreat centre, Kechara Forest Retreat.

Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

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.
