THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

4 years old TWIST…

I just realised that today, 4th March 2011, is the 4th anniversary of Pi’s TWIST!!

My first ever blog posting was on 4th March 2007, with arwah Kak Ruby Ahmad as the first person ever to comment on my blog, also on the same day.

I have blogged about many of my clients… I can’t even recall how many of them. The ones who have already left us like Rose, Lily, Rina, Azman & Rashid. The unwed pregnancies… Zana, Sharifah and Azimah. The babies born to mothers who are young enough to be my daughter… (surely my little Cek Mek and baby So’od stole the limelight), and not forgetting the other pregnancy cases I’ve been dealing with… Maria, Sha, Fuzi, Yah, Asiah, Ina…

I have blogged about the children… especially the ones taken care by single mothers. The ones whom I’ve brought out shopping for their schooling needs, the ones needing help for their schooling…

I have blogged about my home visits and deliveries of groceries and bicycles…

I have blogged about our Family Day outings… Lost World of Tambun in 2007, Taiping Zoo in 2008, National Stud Farm in 2009 and back to LWOT again in 2010.

I have blogged about my clinic duties in Ipoh and Taiping… the various types of people I see at the clinic.

I have blogged about the talks I gave and the exhibitions we participated in… to give awareness to the public on the subject of HIV/AIDS.

And oh, of course, from time to time I do also apply my 3M in this blog… merepek, merapu, meracau… :)

I am not too sure how long I will continue to blog, but I guess as long as I am still active in this line of voluntary work, I shall continue to bore you with my stories.

Hopefully after 4 years, you are not THAT bored yet with…

Salam Kak Pi,

As long as you will write, I will always read.
You have inspired me to venture into the world of volunteering and with my hand on my heart, I can say that there is no turning back now.

Thank you for inspiring me, thank you for being there when I needed a shoulder to 'cry' on and thank you Kak Pi for being Kak Pi.

Take care and big big hugs from me and the family in Vestlandet.
Saya sudahi dengan pantun:

Pejam celik menanti siang,
Twist begitu twist begini,
Saya dah tanya berulang ulang,
Bila ooo bila, Kak Pi nak sampai sini?

Pi Bani said...

Twist begini, twist begitu
Twist Kak Pi, twist menari
Nantikan Kak Pi, nantilah dulu
Nanti ooo nanti, nanti tiket free!

On your fourth anniversary, I leave my first comment. Have been reading but don't quite know what to say about what you say so well on this very noble task you do.

Keep it up, keep twisting :)

Pi,
Arwah Kak Ruby would have been sooo proud of this TWIST and pengarang nya. Keep it up.

Pi Bani said...

Kay,

K.Intan,
When K.Ruby first started to blog, I was the one who helped set up the blog (masa tu the tkcoga blog yang dia handle) for her. I yang bertangguh-tangguh to set up my own blog sebab I wasn't quite sure whether or not I should share my experience in my voluntary work. Banyak issues kena fikir, confidentiality issues etc. Tapi alhamdulillah, I'm glad I finally started to share the stories of the PLHIVs without having to reveal their identities...
