Wrapping up 2013 | Hitting 200


Good evening ladies and gentleman.
Guten Abend meine Damen und Herren.

That's German folks. Suddenly remembered the wonderful evening when I was emcee at a dinner and learned to say a few lines in German for the sake of our shareholders then. Yes, we all reminisce happy moments don't we? Alhamdulillah. Shaykh Mendes said: "Every experience, bitter or sweet, every circumstances is a means to know Allah." 

Apart from feeling wonderful tonight, I'm also feeling giddy that even KLCC Twin Towers in the picture below look lopsided heh...heh. But of course it's just a perspective issue like the Zen koan where two monks argue about a flag flipping. One of them asked: "Is the flag waving?" or as asked by the other monk: "Is the wind blowing?"

Lopsided or giddy, a woman gotta do what a woman gotta do which is make the last step to hit her target of making at least 200 postings for year 2013. Alhamdulillah this is the 200th posting y'all. But of course you will have to pardon me for 20% of the postings or more, those which are merepek-nonsense. Merepek is a Malay word meaning nonsense. A buddy of mine coined the term merepek-nonsense, it's like double nonsensical. Merepek is pronounced like mer as in mercy - re as in ray - pek as in bake but with a "p". That's for the benefit of our foreign readers. That's a useful word when anyone tries to fool you when you're in Malaysia. By the way, next year, 2014 is Visit Malaysia Year.

It's 30th December. Everyone, everywhere, is emotionally and psychologically wrapping up the year. It's been a very colorful year for me. That's a polite way of saying "this year is full of drama!" LOL. But of course all in all, it's a happy year, it's a happy old year now that we are all waiting to welcome a happy new year :)


Oh yes, Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah we have been given life for one whole year, almost.

1. But some things are really/physically lopsided. It ain't a perspective issue.
2. Did you know that one tower of the KLCC Twin Towers was built by a Japanese company and the other tower by a Korean. And they both ended up being equal in height. Two nations in sync there for the good of a third nation - Malaysia. Reminds us of lines from the song 'We are the world': "We all are a part of God's great big family, and the truth you know, love is all we need."
