Last Friday i had the opportunity to have a walk and did our shopping at Tamu Donggongon, this tamu (local street market) which open only on Thursday and Friday every week.
My favourite spot will be right in the middle of the tamu ground where I can get find some local handicraft. The place where you can get traditional accessories, beads, locally made brass bangles and traditional costumes.
As i was looking and thinking what to buy, there was another girl who was busy looking for different patterns and design of bracelets. Soon after, we were both searching, discussing on design we saw. As i mentioned to her i need to get something not too trendy and . While we were busy looking at the design “itu design tidak penting, yang penting ngam dalam hati..be yourself!” (the design is not important, what important is its suits you) the young man who own the booth came interrupting our conversation. “Mana boleh cakap tua, mesti mau positif bah”(you have to be positive and cannot say old) he continued.
I did not expect that advice came from a young man but I am thankful for the simple reminder. I bought two piece of brass bangles which according to him will help improve our health, easing the pain of arthritis, improve the condition and appearance of skin.
With the advice he gave, now these bangles are more meaningful and magical, because whenever i wear these bangles, i will remember his advice and feeling there is a highest potential in me.
Sometimes we get simple reminder and advice by anyone and sometimes stranger. It happened at any place and any time but be open to it, sometimes it can be harsh but sincere.
Be thankful for it, advice, critics, these are all words that can either builds us up or break us down. Be smart!
