Happy Deepavali... (avoid that RM170/kg sugar)

Deepavali is our national celebration.

I have fond memories celebrating it with my Hindu friends at the Sungai Baru Estate, just a 10 minutes walk from our house. There were Chandra, Ramu, Loga, Suresh and others. We went to the same primary school, Masjid Tanah English School.

No problems then. The Malays in our kampung Moncino Bosa (known as the High Chapparal then), the Indians at the Estate and the Chinese knew each other very well. We were like a big family, helping each other and enjoyed a harmonious life.

But those were the days. As development and modernisation wrap us up, we tend to forget where we used to belong... and how we got started.

To peace-loving Malaysians, HAPPY DIWALI... and don't end up buying a RM170 per kg sugar (here). Its bloody expensive... heh heh!

(To Ramu and Loga who are still there in the Estate, check my facebook... our childhood photos are there)

kisah silam yang ringkas tetapi penuh makna dan patut dijadikan contoh oleh generasi malaysia hari ini dan akan datang.

mengimbau kisah silam, saya setuju bahawa kita memangnya lebih bermuafakat pada masa dulu.

selamat menyambut deepavali

bukan giat mara je buat silap, banyak lagi agensi kerajaan buat salah.

sama ada sengaja atau tidak, takkan benda macam tu pun tak boleh pikir.
