Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Looking Back With No Regrets .. Jun 03, 2009

The Link if you can't see this

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” --Dr. Leo Buscaglia

This was a Merdeka advertisement by Petronas some years ago. I think when you watch this a few times, you will understand better the message.

And this is really what is missing in Malaysia today, when Malaysians see each other as Malaysians and not by what differentiates us but what makes us all really the same.

If you notice, you get to see Jay Menon too if I am not mistaken as the young Letchumi.

Last night Riddzy shared with me an advert from Petronas on YouTube which sent me on a little walk down festive Petronas adverts and I have to say they still make the best adverts ever. I was crying buckets by the time I went to bed - my typical reaction every time I watch a Petronas advert. Remember the one that created such a furore some years back the Indian boy with his father off to the Declaration of Merdeka? I thought what idiots to those who made all that noise.

That ad till this day gets me all choked up and teary because even though I was not born then, listening to those who were then young adults and children - the atmosphere was just so super charged and it transcended all down to all races. There was not one person who didn't feel totally MALAYSIAN that morning.

How many of us feel the same today I wonder... Am I any less Malaysian if I am not Malay? I think I am more Malaysian though eheheh because I am the result of the mix of many.

Let us find our unity again for the future of this country. Enjoy ....
