Energizer Power of Giving: Giving the Gifts of Playtime to Underprivileged Children

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I am not very sure which one I am, but I do know one thing; I have a lot of friends from all walks of life. Something I don’t always see as good as not everyone of them emit aura that will motivate me or uplifts me in a positive manner. I know this is not a very nice thing to say, but having a lot of friends is meaningless if they are not going to bring out the best in you.

Having it terribly rough in 2013 where life in whole is concerned, I made sure I changed 360′ in 2014. I am determined to be a happier person…be a better version myself every single day.

I believe in the Law of Attractions; mix with people who emits positive energy, and you will benefit from it and be positive too. Yes. The trick to be a better and happier person, is to be with people who will inspire and motivate me. And so, realizing how important it is for me to change, instead of continuing to stick around with people who constantly pull me down, I started to change my circle of friends.

Instead of mixing with people who commented negatively on the things that I do, I started to mingle with those who doesn’t judge me and says kind words whenever I share my daily lives with them. I love taking photos and sharing pictures of myself and my son, so instead of sharing it with ‘friends’ who comment negatively about it regardless of how lovely the pictures turned out, I restrict myself and only will share my selfies with those who says kind words about it and share with me their beautiful photos in return. And instead of hanging around with people who de-motivate me and tells me that I am not good enough whenever I want to attempt something like writing contests, cooking contests, singing in public and whatnot, I stick to those who encourage me and pray for my success, even when they know I am not really good at it.

As a result…I feel much happier and a much beautiful person. And it shows. 🙂

One would have said that these are small matter. But I beg to differ. Weeding out negative, unsupportive people from my life made a HUGE difference. I accomplished much more with positive and supportive people in my life. Having positive friends in my life made me do so many things that I never dreamed of doing before in my life; traveling the country, participating in contests and competitions and actually wins it, share the songs I sing in public on various social media, and the most recent one, doing charity works that benefits underprivileged children during Energizer Power of Giving event in 1Utama. It feels so good, and please, do allow me to share all the positive energy that I felt that day with all of you here. 🙂

A few weeks ago, I spotted something interesting on Energizer Malaysia FB page; Energizer will be buying RM20,000 worth of toys from Hamleys to give away to underprivileged children from Kiwanis Malaysia and they’re asking the public to donate batteries to power up the toys. Apart from buying batteries to power up the battery operated toys for the children, the public are also encouraged to take a pledge to do nice things  here –>https://www.facebook.com/EnergizerMY/app_934223696607703

Apart from buying batteries to power up the toys, my pledge was to donate my old books and spread positive  energy by singing. 🙂 So I did. If you are my friend on Facebook or follower on my instagram, you would notice the hashtags #positivenergy ,  #energizerMY and#energizerpowerofgiving. It is actually for this campaign where I shared my singing and excitements for the actual event.

My bff, blogger Wendy and Miera are especially excited about what I was doing and was absolutely supportive about it too to the point that they came with me during the actual day to help me make good of my pledge and help me shop for toys for the children of Kiwanis Malaysia.

Energizer batteries on sale…you may buy em for yourself, and also give em up for donations. Good thing about the Energizer batteries is that they last longer and doesn’t ruin your devices as they do not leak. 🙂 Absolutely great for toys.

Anyway, chosen individuals and members of the media were given RM200 vouchers to spend and select battery operated toys for the Kiwanis Malaysia’s children from Hamleys.

Here’s the huge gift from Hamleys containing some battery operated toys and Energizer batteries that my friend Miera selected for the child that she was assigned to. Sorry… Although I was given the exact same voucher to buy gifts for the kids, there is no picture of me. I’m somewhat shopaholic. Let me loose to shop, and I will forget everything and just shop.
