Selflessness Coupled With Altruism.
Yesterday, I attended the Leo Club’s monthly meeting and found out that we will be having our next feeding program on September 1st. Yay! 🙂
I hate poverty. It breaks my heart to see so many street children deprived of the good life. I wish I could help them all but I can’t, so in my own little way, I try my best to at least show them the better side of life, even for just a while.
Yoga Jam, Vegetarian Dinner & Lemon Grass Tea.
Right after the meeting, my friend Mia asked me to join her yoga class. AJ also tagged along and the three of us headed to some place in Jaro to meet Mia’s yoga buddies. She introduced us to Bali and Mara, social workers from Canada who volunteered to extend their help here.
Turned out, t’was Bali’s birthday so they invited us to join their Saturday yoga jam and vegetarian dinner.
I for one, am not a fan of both. In fact, I hate vegetables! Icck.
So anyway, we joined the yoga jam and I suddenly felt more relaxed. Yoga jam isn’t your typical serious meditation stuff. It’s actually a fun activity where you listen to music and recite various mantras. It was a great experience. Oh. And I’m planning to do it again. 😉
Bali played the guitar while singing the hymns and mantras. She had a really great voice. The first time I heard her sing, I got goosebumps. Yes, her voice is thaaat beautiful! Bali also takes lovely photos.
Mara, on the other hand, was really outgoing. She was the carefree sister. I enjoyed watching her sing and dance, her energy level was unbelievable. Oh, and she’s also very creative, and she loves shoes! and shopping!!! 😀 She reminds me of my younger self. She works as a freelance graphic artist by the way, so, in case you need her services, feel free to contact her here.
We also met Bea at the Science of Identity Foundation yesterday. She was a pretty shy girl though.
After the yoga jam, we had vegetarian dinner. I was nervous, I wasn’t sure if I could swallow the veggies. Thank God, it wasn’t so bad. In fact, I liked the onion rings! And there was tea, lemon grass tea. It was okay. I’m not a big fan of hot tea. I think you probably know that already if you have read my previous posts.
And of course, we had ice cream! Yay! It was Bali’s birthday after all.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BALI! 😀
The photos here were from AJ’s phone since I forgot to bring my camera. So, thanks AJ! 🙂
All in all, the night was fun. Cheers to yoga, ice cream & new found friends!
