A host of other festivals are celebrated by the different ethnic and religious groups throughout the year. We have a unique tradition here called the 'Open House' (Rumah Terbuka) where we welcome allvisitors to our house to share food and drinks, but always sensitive to the religious requirements and obligations of our guests and invariably serve only 'kosher' or 'halal' food.
    So in the spirit of our Malaysian spirit of asking for Forgiveness and Reconciliation and the universal spirit of love, peace and good will to all, my I once again wish everyone a Happy New Year.

    NB: I am a Theravada Buddhist; my eldest son is Buddhist, my second son and wife and children are Muslims, my youngest son is an atheist.In our extended family there are Muslim (Sunni and Shia), Buddhist (Theravada and Mahayana),Taoist, Hindu, Christian (Protestant and Catholic), Jew, Bahai .

    Another BooBoo - 'warhorse' should have been 'workhorse'. I would like to say that I was inebriated with the Christmas spirits but I am a teetotaler, so no excuse just my Malaysian 'Maaf' (Sorry).
    I am very impressed with the attitude of kindness and consideration in your country Yew. Such a feeling of the "kindred spirit" can be all to rare in this world of ours. Thanks for sharing this. AL

    May you all share the spirit of Christmas and the festive season and may all you wish yourselves come true. Bless everyone and share a thought for those who are not as fortunate as us at this time.
