As usual, none of the Chinese shops are open (I'm posting this from an Indian coffee shop by the way awaiting my roti canai takeaways).
The Chinese has been contributing to our nation's economy even before the formation of Malaysia.
Now with the current political situation, we see the main 3 races; Malay,Chinese and Indian are at logger-heads with each other due to various reasons.
With that, I hope that this year will see some stability and of course prosperity in our nation. This can only be achieved through peace and understanding of one another.
I'm thankful that in Sabah, we still have the open-mindedness between races. The year has only started and the challenges are numerous. Unity within the state is crucial so I hope and pray that good things would come to pass.
Once again I would like to wish everybody a Happy Chinese New Year and may all of you will become blessed with health and prosperity.
Gong Xi Fa Cai!

The next version by Ernie Vasquez, though not as full as the one above, was the one that inspired me to seek out the guitar tablature of this song. This version sounds sweet and easy...
If weren't for John Barry's music, the film wouldn't have any impact at all. In this case, the music helped the movie a lot. If the music were to be mediocre, even Superman himself won't be able to save the day... (Okay, okay... the time traveling theme is good but its predominantly a love story and with romance, one needs to have the mood... I'm getting ahead of myself and it's not even Valentine's Day yet!)
I was just fiddling around Wordpress.com's blogging features. I find it to be more sophisticated and user friendly in comparison to Blogger.com. I spent a couple of hours with it including importing information off this blog site to Wordpress.com. It can import my pictures but not my embedded videos and music. I guess I'd have to do it manually.

Anyway, last night my kid needed help with his homework i.e Pendidikan Moral. I was disturbed to find out the only religion that was left out was Ugama Kristian. The rest are all there; Islam,Hindu,Buddha and Sikh. I had a hard time explaining to the poor confused child about our missing religion(the child's father is equally confused and poor by the way).
There are so many questions about issues that need answers in our country. And this is one of them... Why is Ugama Kristian is absent from Pendidikan Moral Darjah 4?
You know it would be very easy if I gave up Christianity in favour of Islam. The things that I'm doing now would have been super-smooth. Last year, a friend of mine converted to Islam because she wanted marry her Muslim boyfriend. A person forced to be converted to another religion in order to marry...
You know that writing about this is very depressing. Of course it is the Education Ministry's tactic to increase Islamisation of the whole nation. They go after our kids.
You want to talk about morality?
Okay, lets go.
Where is the moral in allowing a man to marry 4 times? Won't that bring hurt and disharmony to the 1st family? Of course it will! We are dealing with human feelings. Recently a family member of mine was abandoned by her muslim husband because he wanted to marry another woman. But what can she do? Complain?
Anyway that aside, we are stuck in a country full of bigots and hypocrites. It breaks my heart everytime I think about it.
Okay. Gotta go now. Kid 2 is out from class. Catch up later.
I shall try not to complain :0)
Anyway, whoops... Gotta go...kid number one just came out...
