no it’s not an obsession about Barney.
yesterday was Purple Day. and to show my utmost and sincere support for children with Epilepsy, i wore purple to johor bahru yesterday. my dear friend Kirsty, over at Gone Bananas, had already a post for everyone to read and learn about epilepsy. and most excitingly, to take picture with anything purple! i promised her that i would be taking part in this awareness.
so weeks before, i thought i should be doing something very funny or creative, cos that was what Kirsty suggested, while wearing purple and to get a picture taken. i was in school one week, of course in purple, trying to find other things that were purple so that i could do a funny pose or something that tell a story.
i was excited and had a fantastic drive to do this when i found many things in school that were purple: child-size balancing beam, water bottle, a shopping bag, a basket, hula hoop, an apron, a big gym ball. could you imagine what went through my head when i saw all these purple-y thingamabobs?
i went crazy till i couldn’t make up my mind!
then it struck me that it must come from the heart, if i really were to do this and show my sincerest support to Meghan. oh by the way, i forgotten. Meghan is Kirsty’s daughter and she has Epilepsy. be nice, people!
so as i have written above, i finally wore purple on the actual day, without all those things i found at school.
wearing my favourite ZARA shawl in…PURPLE.
Happy Epilepsy Awareness Day, dear Meg-a-moo (err that’s what her mom calls her LOL)
