I took these photos using my handphone many months ago.These are photos of a consruction site of a bugalow in Shah Alam taken from an apartment. There is a story behind the picture, like the saying a picture tells thousand words.What I am going to write is nothing to do with construction but about the people working at the construction site. The Indonesian workers. When I feel despair and at loss, these people somehow give me inspiration and strength to move on and not giving up. It also made me feel how lucky I am to be in Malaysia. I hope many of us would feel the same way too. How grateful I am to Allah for all the blessings to live in peaceful and posperous country, Malaysia.
These workers have the endurance, perseverance and patience to continue to live and support their family back home.You would hardly see local people working at construction site. They live and work at the construction site to finish the job.They do not see their family for months and sometime years. Their place to stay is just a timber shed and they sleep on the floor. When the construction of a walls started and room or enclosed space formed, the workers would soon move in and it becomes their new shelter for them to stay and sleep. Their old shed have to be removed to give ways for roads or mobilisation of machinery as the project progressing and reaching a completion. Lectures in Egypt, they are making money just as much as our school teachers whilst doctors in Algeria just earn a little. People in other parts of the live in hunger and fear. Here in Malaysia, people accusing the government of being 'zalim', etc. They are clueless what 'zalim' means. Some of these people study on government loans at overseas but they critised the goverment and support the opposition parties. That is really sad. They do not know how lucky there are compared to other people in the world. I guess I love to be a traveler and wanderer, because it made me always to thank Allah and to be grateful. Alhamdullilah.
