Mother - A Documentary

A not-to-be-missed documentary about the perils of one being poor, yet still has the determination and preseverence to earn money through sheer hard work with her bare hands and legs. This is what my friend (together with his other friend, who produced that documentary) had to say about her:

Followed a recyclable waste collector for 2 days to walk in her shoes and feel what it's like to be her, from what I experienced of her, I don't think that I have the will to live trough her life and to be honest, I'd suicide/died long time ago.

This woman lives in a house which I would describe it as the aftermath of a collapsed building the only difference is that the house still standing, everything in the house is damaged, dirty and dark, I've seen some very dirty houses but nothing I've seen so far can be compare to this.However, it's not her fault for the house to be like this, she did her best to keep the house clean but one woman simply cannot win against 7 uncooperative bastards (Yes! They deserve the credit for messing up the place.)

She is poor and unfortunate, she has to beg for leftover food at the economy rice stall to put food on the table, and the unfortunate parts comes in when the children refuse to eat, takes from the mother's saving and go out and eat with their friends.

Some might laugh at her mis-fortune, some might laugh at her being uneducated. To me, if you'd do that, you're stooped so low in life that you're worst than a pile of dung that anyone finds on the roadside.

Life's full of fortunes and mis-fortunes, but it is how we perceive and handle the situation to make the best out of it. So what if you're poor? So what if you're rich then? Does it give you the right to be complacent and do nothing to improve the situation further?

Think about it...And. Happy Early Mother's Day to those in Malaysia! (although it's still two weeks away - celebrated in Malaysia on every 2nd Sunday of the month of May)
