From the Diary of Our Ex-wards ...Story Of One of Our Ex Wards.
I’m Pung Kam Kee, nick name (Maxx), currently 24 years old.
My wife is a Malay muslim and we have a son, 7 month old.
I had been staying at Pure Life Society for about 8 years since 2002 -2009.
I started primary school at SEKOLAH RENDAH SATHYA SAI. Besides learning normal subject, we learned human values, moral and discipline.
Dharma secondary school is a lower secondary school,limited space,only form 1 to form 3 classes. After PMR, all students needed to find another secondary school to continue their studies.Soon after my PMR result, my mother decided to discharge me from Pure Life Home.
However wasn't interested to pursue my form 4. I was only interested in computers. Luckily I found a college which accepted me with a minimum qualification, PMR and that made it possible for me to study at
SUNDERLAND COLLEGE for 1 year. More about this success story
Pongal is the only festival of Hindu that follows a solar calendar and is celebrated on the fourteenth of January every year. Pongal has astronomical significance: it marks the beginning of Uttarayana, the Sun's movement northward for a six month period. In Hinduism, Uttarayana is considered auspicious, as opposed to Dakshinaayana, or the southern movement of the sun. All important events are scheduled during this period. Makara Sankranthi refers to the event of the Sun entering the zodiac sign of Makara or Capricorn.
