Living with Dyslexia in Malaysia

Kota Kemuning Buddhist Centre (KKBC)

Since January this year, my family has been attending the Sunday Puja at KKBC due to the fact that my daughter likes to sing and KKBC is a smaller knitted centre.

She is part of the KKBC’s choir, which is led by my friend Wai Leng, a music teacher. Wai Leng and the KKBC group released a CD last December titled “True Friends” which has very Soothing Songs, with songs composed by Wai Leng.

My daughter is lucky to be guided by Wai Leng and is enjoying every moment of ‘stardom’ singing with Wai Leng and her 2 girls weekly during the Sunday Pujas. Besides the weekly Sunday singing, KKBC’s choir has been invited to attend functions at Kajang, Malacca and the latest invite is to sing for 30 minutes at the forthcoming Wesak International Film Festival this Saturday June 21, 2008 at 2pm

On Wesak day, 19th May, the 3 girls (they call themelves “Just Girls”) sang as usual and Wai Leng produced a play whereby all the children in the Sunday Dhamma class were given a chance to act. My son was given the role of Buddha and he enjoyed acting the part of Buddha whereby the audience enoyed his ‘ added antics’ which were not part of the Play.

No doubt this centre is not big like the other temples but nevertheless this centre is unique in that the members are closely knitted. Parents and children have their weekly Pujas together in the same Shrine Hall and are not separated in separate halls hence fostering closer ties.
