Malaysians of My 2009

"That man is great, and he alone,
Who serves a greatness not his own,
For neither praise nor pelf:
Content to know and be unknown:
Whole in himself"
~ Lord Lytton

It's been an interesting year.

Instead of highlighting the blunders, plunders and some dunder-heads, I wish to remember this year with people that have touched and changed my life in countless better ways.

I found selfless courage and brotherhood in Uncle Zorro and our Special Bunch.

I saw valour in Mr. Bong from The Flaccid Mind.

I met great thinkers and visionaries in Mssr Art and Judge Wenger Khairy.

I was blessed with a rewarding friendship with Bro Private Trainer Corporate Athlete and Mr. Zewt (virtually, simply!).

I wept and cheered for live coverage by Mr. Anil Netto.

I seeked unconditional comfort and protection from wonderful, nameless strangers in Ipoh last May who showed me 'warna kulit, pangkat, harta, pendidikan tiada harga tanpa rasa cinta pada Negara'.

I drew great inspirations from a gentleman behind this blog.

I was touched and all fired up by writings from Mr. Dnightcaller, especially on Adik Siti Amynur's plight, that led to the birth of Blogosphere Social Responsibility.

I had my confidence amplified knowing there are still many young souls out there that could make our Ibu Pertiwi a better place for all like Adik Chronicle and Adik Ironic Paradox.

I read more books and shares many more passions in life with The Construction Lawyer, Mr. Modern Life and The O Great Sir Walla.

I felt a huge vacuum when The Enlightening Storyteller passed on to a better place. Al-fatihah.

G.K. Chesterton once said, "There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great".

For that, these are the people who make me feel worth being a Malaysian.

For them, I look forward to a better in-road in 2010 - in our heart, mind and soul.

p.s. For 2010, I'd like to do what I found in "P.S. I Love You" - that is, "Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day".

Good morning and a Happy New Year 2010.

I’m humbled that my blog, dead as it can be for the past half a year, commands an undeserved mention from you.

I’m in the midst of completing my dissertation, which, sadly, curtails me into pulling the plug on blogging activities for a while.

I look forward to read more of your postings for this year.

And if I do remember correctly, we still have a nasi lemak / Nescafe session pending.

Dear Mr Hawkeye

Same goes to you Sir. Thank you so much...

Dear Mr Oscar The Grouch

It's the lasting impression of what one writes not how many one writes. Your comments have that kind of impression :)

May good luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you. Amen.

Dear Sir Walla

Thank you for the mention Fi-sha.

As for me, you always be there for me, dropping me kind and encouraging words, even when I wrote angst ridden posts, screaming on top of my lungs at the craps we faced on a little to frequent basis..

All the best for the year 2010, the year of the Tiger, Fi-sha! Keep on writing many more awesome posts!
