Didn't find my husband hehe although this is where I met my best of friends here who have taught me so much and always being there for me!!! Thank you Google +!!!
I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!

Ten Ringgit Club is set up by my sister Julie and her friend Su Pang for one purpose that is to help the poor to have a better living and for their children to get an education

To know more about our organisation please go to this link

About us

The Ten Ringgit Club Bhd was set up on 11th August, 2011 to address the educational needs of marginalized children in northern Sarawak. Many children are deprived of education due to extreme poverty and lack of proper documents.  Besides providing them basic literacy and numeracy skills, we have a special aim to improve the standard of English.

Individually, each of us may be unable to fund the efforts required to make a dramatic impact on the quality of life of our underprivileged children.  However we can make a difference if we pool our resources together.  RM10 from many people, instead of thousands from a few- that is the strategy of the Ten Ringgit Club- to improve the lives of these children, RM10 at a time. 

Our Operation

We keep our operation very simple and straightforward.  There is no administrative staff or expenses as every task is carried out by ourselves.  Volunteers do not receive allowances.  Only monies spent that are directly related to the children are claimed such as rental for premise, teacher’s salaries, food, printing and stationery, books, educational materials, children’s medical expenses and utilities. 

Our learning center, Noah's Ark Kindergarten is situated at:

Staff Barracks
Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club
Jalan Miri-By-Pass

We have trained teachers to teach literacy and numeracy skills to children aged between 4 to 18 years.  No fees are charged. We also provide snacks and all stationery free of charge.

How can you contribute?

Members can choose to pay their pledge of RM10 once a month or RM120 for the whole year.  You can also choose to pledge any amount over RM10.

Payment can made by:
2. cheque made payable to THE TEN RINGGIT CLUB
3. ATM money transfer to The Ten Ringgit Club's Maybank Account # 5-11186-32421-9. Please e-mail transaction slip scan to with your details so we can issue a receipt.
4.Via pay pal to on the link and click about us and scroll to the bottom)
Please ensure you receive a receipt for your donation.

Used clothing and other items

We also welcome used clothing, shoes, books, stationery.  Please give them to us if they are still in good condition. We will either sell them to raise some funds or give them to the children.

How do we update you on our project?

A report on latest activities and statement of donation received and expenditure will be posted every 3 to 4 months.  Please view under news at our website.

How else can you help?

You can help us recruit more members by telling your friends and families.  Each ten dollar a month contribution shall be put to good use.

The Ten Ringgit Club is a non-profit corporation registered in Miri, Sarawak.

Contact us at 012-8700757 or 019-8544237 for more information about how else you can help or be a member/volunteer.

Pardon the language but I thought the ring is quite cool. Met this one guy who had so many rings and silver jewelry on him that I needed to take the shot.

Artist, Designer, Fine Art Photographer
Originally from Malaysia and currently based in San Francisco as a designer specializing in hospital design  

I have always enjoyed photography and what started of as taking pictures for fun with my point and shoot has now become a joy-filled and consuming passion. 

My background in architecture and design have influenced the way I perceive the visual world. I love all forms, color, light and textures. My compositions endeavor to freeze unique moments in time by reducing an object to the most simplest of elements. Capturing a breath of a single moment with the intention that my abstract creations will bring inspirational enlightenment and aesthetic self contemplation to the viewer to see beauty in all things no matter how insignificant it appears to be.
