Having 'self-compassion' means being kind, patient, and caring for one’s own well-being.

On Sunday 12 October, Clinical Psychologist Ms. Low Mi Yen gave an interesting talk at Nalanda Centre with the title, “Watering Our Own Garden”, which was about practising compassion towards ourselves.  We can care and love others, but it is important that we do not neglect and lose ourselves in the process.

'Life goes on, even after death'. Thank you Zhi Ting! You have made it possible for others to continue with their normal lives.

On 6 October, six-year old Ooi Zhi Ting was playing with her sisters, aged 15 and 11, in an apartment block’s swimming pool.  The little girl from Penang reportedly suffered a leg cramp and sank to the bottom.  A resident who witnessed the incident pulled Zhi Ting out of the water, and she was rushed to a hospital.  Unfortunately, the little girl passed away later.
