Me and 100days battle

During these days, I am still busying with volunteer actions on storm
victims relief and my on job training, I want to share about my 100
days battle. I hate War. This is just battle of life whoever face and
fight to succeed. Last over 100days, I have been to read one book
which related Christian while I went to beauty saloon to have my hair
cut and beautified to shape my eyebrow. :P

In that book, after 40days, everyone can change their lives
accordingly. During those days, need to review, change mind and soul,
praise God's bless. As for me, I was so interested in it and wanted to
apply anything on that idea. Thence, I reviewed my current condition
and life status without hesitation. Although time is knowledge age,
even I invested my time and effort in Tourism, I cannot rich and get
high living standard till now. I will still need to invest money to
operate own business. So, I would like to change my career after next
100days. I decided to go abroad to work as professional in IT field on
8th February 2008.

According to my decision, I attended Industrial ASP.Net Course and
prepared to sit Microsoft Exams. On 17th May, 100days take time. Then,
I sit Exam on 18th May for 70-536(Application Development Foundation)
and 70-528(Web Based Client Development). Now it is time to be
boasted. (Hehee)

Could you say Congratulations on passing my recent Microsoft
Certification exams, with a widely-recognized validation of my skills
on Microsoft technology? Also, nice to find connections with millions
of experienced IT professionals around the world at events and online
as I'm one of certified.[For my Microsoft certification

 UN warns another storm headed toward Myanmar
 Posted: 09 May 2008 1849 hrs

 BANGKOK - The United Nations warned Friday that another storm was
headed in the direction of Myanmar, which could complicate the
slow-moving relief efforts from deadly Cyclone Nargis.

An estimated 1.5 million people have been left homeless by the
disaster, which has killed tens of thousands, and the storm could pose
serious risks to those battling disease, said Richard Horsey, a UN
relief spokesman.


Fast Facts

 "Our meteorological people tell us there's likely to be fairly strong
rainfall in the next seven days," he told AFP in neighbouring
Thailand.

"That's going to be a big issue with unpaved roads. Heavy rainfall
could complicate things for all those people going without shelter,"
Horsey said.

"If there's an epidemic of water-borne disease and a lack of shelter
when a storm comes in ... if we have another storm coming into the
delta, that's going to be a significant concern for all those people
without shelter."

The country's military, which has run Myanmar with an iron fist for
almost half a century, said earlier that it welcomed shipments of
supplies but was "not ready" to let in foreign aid workers, including
disaster experts.

"If we don't get this relief effort up to full scale quickly, there's
significant risk of a second round of this disaster which could
potentially kill as many people as the initial cyclone," Horsey said.

Dear Friends and Colleague:

P.S. Sorry if you receive duplicate copies of this email....


Give Direct Emergency Relief to Burmese Cyclone Victims
www.shelterboxusa.org

You can provide immediate, direct relief to Burmese cyclone victims.This relief will go entirely to the victims, not be sidetracked by government agencies, politics or administrative siphoning.

ShelterBox USA is poised to send a first shipment of 200 ShelterBoxes to Burma.  These ShelterBoxes will provide 2,000 cyclone victims immediate shelter plus the tools needed to boil water, cook food and bury waste.  ShelterBox USA is a non-profit, international service project of the Rotary Club.  The Rotary Club is a worldwide organization of people whose goal is to come together and give back.

These ShelterBoxes are currently pre-positioned in Dubai.  A fully trained, on-the-ground response team will directly distribute the ShelterBoxes in Burma.  All that is necessary is the go-ahead from the Myanmar government.

The charge d'affaires of the Myanmar Embassy in Washington was personally contacted today with the offer of 200 donated ShelterBoxes by a highly placed Burmese-American.  A formal request to approve ShelterBox relief has been forwarded to Yangon.  The government has
already indicated its readiness to accept international aid if it is non-political.

Each ShelterBox contains a 10-person tent, bedding, water
purification tablets, a trenching shovel, cooking/eating utensils, tools and stove, etc.  ShelterBox USA has provided disaster relief to tsunami and Katrina victims, responded to the Pakistani earthquake and is currently providing humanitarian relief in the Sudan.

To learn more about ShelterBox USA, please visit its website: www.shelterboxusa.org.


Sponsoring a full ShelterBox costs $1,000, but any and all financial donations are welcome.

The donation code for the Burmese relief effort is 5408.

You may donate on-line or mail your donation to:

       ShelterBox USA
