Wesak Day is an annual holiday observed traditionally by practicing Buddhists in South Asian & South East Asian countries, universally commemorated on the full moon in the lunar month of Viskha, usually during late April or early May. Informally called "Buddha's birthday," it actually encompasses the birth, enlightenment Nirvana, and passing (Parinirvana) of Gautama Buddha.

Anak-anak Raudah

Penghuni di Pondok Penyayang Raudah. Kebanyakan mereka masih bersekolah dan memerlukan bantuan dari pelbagai segi. Aku berpeluang mengunjungi mereka bulan lalu atas tugasan yang diberikan oleh pejabat, melihat kehidupan mereka di sana, aku bersyukur ke atas kurniaNya pada aku, walaupun tak mewah, tapi cukup la bagi aku untuk tidak mengeluh pasal kepayahan hidup.
