      I like to fulfil my dream. I've lots of dreams. Some are so impractical that I know they will never be fulfilled. But some more other dreams which are practicable and I think they should be fulfilled. I always pray to Allah so that He would help me to fulfil those.

      I met the one who works for NGO at the Seoul Bus terminal.
      He asked me to donate some money that can help the poor.
      But at that time, I didn't have any cash in my pocket.
      So I wasn't able to give the money to the man.

      If I had a money at that time, I could have given a contribution that helps fulfil their dream.
      Surely, other guys could help make their dreams come true, instead of me.~
