Kurang bersyukurkah mereka?

Tugas kita sebagai manusia hanyalah terus berusaha untuk mencapai sesuatu matlamat tanpa perlu terlalu memikirkan hasil akhirnya. Apabila kita terlalu memikirkan hasil akhir sesuatu perkara berkemungkinan akan menjadi penghalang untuk mencapai sesuatu.

The kind blood

It's easy to promise ourselves that we will give when we have more – more money, more time, more energy. But in reality, if giving is not part of our habit, it becomes increasingly difficult to do, no matter how much we have. By making giving a personal habit, we ensure that generosity becomes a natural part of our life.

Addressing economic challenges of an ageing Malaysian population

“I am a microbiology researcher specialising in virology which is the scientific study of viruses. I investigate the interactions between viruses and their host at the cellular level, and we identify how infections by these pathogens cause diseases.

Besides conducting research and fieldwork, I also enjoy teaching and engaging with students keen on studying infectious diseases. I have always been fascinated by viruses, as they are resilient tiny entities about which we know very little.

Viruses have caused multiple outbreaks around the world in the last century. Therefore, we must be vigilant and prepare ourselves for the next pandemic. By understanding our adversaries from within, we are one step closer to devising strategies to fight them effectively.

Viruses are smart, but we need to be smarter.”
