I always wanted to join a campaign/charity event that related to pink ribbon community/causes and finally this year I got the chance, not only to spread the news of this event but also to join the event; Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer Charity Walk by Avon Malaysia which is held at Putrajaya, Precinct 3 on 23rd September 2012.
Arrived at 7.00am, it was such a great feeling to see thousand people wearing pink outfits/preps from all over Malaysia gathering together to show their support in this Charity Walk that aims to raise awareness among Malaysia citizen the importance of Breast Self Examination for early detection of breast cancer.
I was more amazed to see numbers of breast cancer survivor attended this charity walk with their vibrant and energetic attitude despite of what they been through. They are truly an inspiration for us who keep grumbling and giving up when trivial problem arise. One of this breast cancer survivor is my fellow friend, Just which I been reading and following her journey in fighting & surviving breast cancer from the A to Z.

|The eager crowd, the start & finish line|
The walk started around 8-9am and throughout the journey of 5km walk with 5 station in total, we were entertained and cheered by eclectic mix of groups and not to forget all of those 'catching' placards!

Just and me were together all the way from the start to the finish line of those 5km walk. We were among the last finisher so yeah, we missed the pink ribbon formation, a sharing by breast cancer survivor and presentation of donation cheque amounting to RM50,000 from Avon to Breast Cancer Welfare Association and Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation. We were taking our time chit-chatting, snapping pics here and there so it was no wonder we took an hour and half to get to the finish line! LOL.. By the way, I also managed to take pics with Soo Wincci & Intan Ladyana! Yay! Thanks Just for being my photographer..hehehe!
|Soo Wincci & Intan Ladyana :D|
|Walking for good cause!|

Though we missed some of the events but we were there to witness the finale of this Charity Walk which is "Go Bald" Session with Micheal & Guys, where one of our fellow blogger friend, DC volunteered to undergo the shaving session. Bravo DC and all of those who volunteered! This session purpose is to seek support from the public to understand how breast cancer feels when they lose their hair during the treatment.
|He was too happy to get shave for good cause!|
|Just, DC and Me!|
It was indeed a very successful events and everyone who participate the walk is now apart of the Malaysia Book of Records for the Largest Participation Breast Cancer Charity Walk in Malaysia. I really hope that our participation and involvement in spreading the breast cancer awareness going to be a continuously responsibility, not bound by this events only. From time to time, lets keep reminding each other about the importance of performing regular Breast Self Examination (BSE) for early detection.

You never said “I’m leaving”
You never said “goodbye”
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.There are no words to tell you
Just what I feel inside
The shock, the hurt, the anger
Might gradually subsideA million times I’ll need you
A million times I’ll cry
If Love alone could have saved you
You never would have diedIn Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fillIt broke my heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you homeThings will never be the same
And although it hurts so badI will smile whenever I think of our memory
I will smile whenever I hear your name
And be proud you were my Dad.
This beautiful poem is dedicated to my beloved deceased father (30 Julai 1939 - 24 September 2006). Rest in peace bapa, you will always in my heart and prayer.
