In Malaysia history books, children and students are taught the meaning of “muhibbah”. It’s about Malaysia’s multi-racial community living harmoniously with one another.
Lately, we’ve had temple destructions, cow head displays and pig head displays. Now comes another grueling test towards our beliefs in muhibbah, church burnings in Malaysia.
It isn’t bothering me religiously but mentally. I start questioning the morality of Malaysians actions towards such acts. Furthermore, how should these acts be judged later?
It’s like a frequency disturbing my wave of thoughts. Where can I find peace? What can I do to calm my thoughts and regain myself? Then I remembered, Juwita Suwito’s song performed for Visit Malaysia 2007. It was titled; One Golden Celebration.
I hope the song (and maybe video) would help you calm your nerves too. We’re Malaysian and let us continue living together in spirit of muhibbah.
Hooray! One of my 2010 resolutions is coming along well. Which is to participate more in the Malaysia blogging scene. And thanks to Nuffnang, I’m going to be doing just that at the Astro B.yond Bloggers Night. 🙂
The party’s going to be held at Modesto’s, Desa Sri Hartamas and 1 lucky blogger might walkaway with a spanking new 32” LG High Definition TV with free subscription to Astro B.yond channels! And to be even more hopeful, there’ll be 3 sets up for grabs. Awesomeness!
I think of resolutions like business goals this year. For example, short term goals are more realistic and easily achievable. The long term goals are the idealistic ones we want to achieve. In other words, the dream.
The 2010 resolutions I’ve made so far are:
Start a project 365 on my photography blog.
Continue my awareness among Malaysia bloggers.
Meet up with Philip and I-Lin more often.
These are what I’d call short term goals. I’ve not really set any long term ones yet but it’ll definitely involve the love of my life; Ariel.
Maybe it’s healthier making resolutions as we usher in the new year. Then we’d know what we want and what type of resolution would it be. But if I had to make a resolution for long term right now, it would be:
