Learn to be thankful ...

Many times, I took random photos for other people whom I don't even know and I made it a point to return the photos. However, hardly anyone has ever reply my e-mail with a word of thank or appreciation.
Where has mannerism and a heart of thankfulness gone to? I read Luke 17:12-16 and this reminded me that during Jesus's time, this problem was already there!

Luke 17:12-16
As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!" When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

How did you even manage to track those people in the photos since you don't even know them?

If you post up the pictures in Facebook, with the person in the pictures been tagged, I believe they won't hesitate to "Like" and might probably write a comment.

Elisha: Easy lah, I get their e-mail addresses and record the corresponding photo numbers.

Most probably they don't even bothered to check out their email. I understand how you feel.

Same goes to blog posting. Published a fresh content, tweet or facebook about it, have a decent traffic flowing into your blog, but hardly you'll see responses or comments. When you asked your friends regarding the topic, surprisingly they say they've read it but they're just not willing to contribute in the conversation.

By the way, I saw your blog update in Sarawak Bloggers RSS feed.
