I am back in Penang again after spending a weekend in Kuala Lumpur for the Nur Salam Fundraising party….. which took place on the 11th of July 2009 at Carlos @ Pavillion. It was a successful fundraising party and raised more than RM105,000.00 for the charity. I had a good time enjoying the atmosphere of the party with my mum, sister, and friend. Among the events in the party, we watched performances from rock stars, gender illusionist shows, jokes, auctions, and Sumay (as Mistress Mara) spanking people to raise funds… etc, but nothing beats the moment when “The Dazzles” was successfully bid. BRAVO (round applause, please)!!!!
The auction event started at around 10:30 pm and there was an abundance of items on the auction list, among them were 5 rounds on a Porsche Le-Mans at Sepang F1 circuit, a fitness course to build 6-pack abdominal muscle, dinner, and a date with a celebrity, traveling package, a collection of aged cigars, a box of limited edition wine, a piece of fine art, a gift pack of branded cosmetics and skincare…. and more.
I was nervous, was excited, and was crossing my fingers (and toes too) hoping that the next would be my contributed handmade bag. At the time near to 12 midnight, the emcee brought out “The Dazzles“…… I was breathless, speechless, and praying that someone will bid for it.
The reserved price is RM800, someone rose his hand… the emcee called “any RM850? I want to hear 850, 850….” again someone rose her hand (sorry, I can’t see who they were as I was far away from the stage)… “ANY 900? ANY 900…” the emcee shouted… Out of my surprise, I heard a familiar voice shouted 1,200 and it was my sister who offered this price!!!!
Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it…. my sister offered RM1,200 to buy back my contributed handmade bag!!!!
Did I ask my sister why, why with this price? She told me that she knows that it is my whole-hearted handmade which I spent so much time and hardwork on it, she wanted to buy it back and let me keep it!!!! I was so touched!!!! I was really speechless and motionless, I was teary-eyed!…. What else can I say? I am the luckiest people in the world to have all kind of supports from all around 🙂
“The Dazzles” is finally back with me… I am glad, I am glad!!!!
