So I wrote the following comments under his post>>>
For me…It started with the Malaysian Badge from SEAP Games in Rangoon (official name at that time) given to me by my English teacher, who is a famous singer.
And the triggering incident was the VCR of the daughter of Dr. Maung Maung Hnin’s wedding attended by the first PM of Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman. I wrote to him from Mandalay and his Secretary General Replied.
Last 30 yrs ago, I cannot learn or get any Malay books. I just read the Malaysian goods’ bilingual labels (Malay/English) and used that very limited knowledge to write one paragraph in Malay language. (I mentioned in the letter how I was trying to learn Malay language.)
When I went to KL in 1986, the Secretary General recognized me as the person who wrote that letter. As Malaysia was suffering from the effects of economic problems, all the Government jobs were frozen and I could not get the job before my visa expired. After he read my goodbye letter to him that I left at his office he followed my house in the evening and told me not to go back Burma but to re-entre Malaysia as he had decided to give me a job in his welfare organization.
Although I never dream or hope to accomplish the daughter of Dr. MMH’s wedding…luckily former PM of Malaysia Tun Dr M attended my daughter’s wedding and the video clip for about 4 minutes length was shown on national TV3 for 3 times….So I agree with you, my friend Rambo Roberts that we need to be DARE to DREAM and if we tried on our dreams…usually it can be achieved.
I hope that our dear LYC friends could also write here how they ‘dare to dream’ the almost impossible and how they achieved their dreams. Not only we must ‘dare to dream’ but must ‘dare to fail’. We must dare to face the numerous failures and use that failures as ‘pillars of success’. FYI I had attached the copies of the ’35 letters of rejects’ I got to the farewell letter I wrote to the Secretary General of the Welfare Organization. That attracted his heart to help me by offering a job.
