1Month1Charity founder - Beloved Lai Chin Lun (1977-2010)

My last notes for Chin Lun - a lost friend... Founder of 1Month1Charity

October 19, 2010 at 3:11pm



Dearest friend - Chin Lun,

I know you since form 1 in Maxwell High School in 1990...that was exactly 20 years ago...time flies and i starts to miss u.

In those schooling day, i feel and belief you are such a stubborn, selfish, negative thinking & always think that other people always owes you something in this world.

We get to know each other truly when i joined Taekwondo club in form 4. From there, i realised that you are not that difficult to friend with. I found that you will care for people that close to you and stand in the same line together with them to defence and fight for right together.

I also learnt that you are strong minded and always has a high desire to do something difference. e.g: The reverse jumping swing kick from your left....which always caught me on my right face...i hate that actually. I still remember the jumping jet side kicks that you shown me to discourage opponent to come close during a sparring event...i'm loving it!

I left KL 3 years for my study @ northern and lost touch with a lot of people...thank to Danny, re-connected me to you...from there we laugh again over the SPM study camp @ Kajang of the "Sarjan Ali Hassan story" and how DesXXXX put one hand on the wall while he XXXXXXX (Censored due to privacy act).

God is being unfair when i heard you gotten the ENT nose Cancer... i was shocked and i still remember.. trying to call you (another memory of you being not using a hand phone until few years back). You have really totally 360 changed!

The Lai which is selfish, negative thinking and belief people owes you thing in this world changed totally! You become caring about strangers, people who need helps, and love to socialise with strangers.

I would like to SALUTE you for helping Matthew Lim - the new born baby who suffers from heart arterials...... despite you illness, you still go to Gleneagles Hospital 830pm to drop the first donation to Steward Lim (Father of Matthew). Allow me to deep BOW because you just don't stop there to help Matthew...your FB and Blogs were used to reach more public to cry for the donation to help the little poor innocence Matthew to keep his life.
 

Parent of Matthew Lim -  Jane Voon and Steward Lim, both tearing in hospital...the moment to enter the operation theatre
 Matthew Lim - a strong boy!
 Lai - Matthew growth up healthily and steadily....god bless him...


I really cannot understand why god love to challenge you with the 2nd world war or Liver cancer? why why why?
