About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Still sad about this

Excerpt taken from a opinion published in Malaysiakini:

Amidst the towering structures and modern landscape of the city, a group of people, with children in tow, saw it fit to parade a freshly severed head of a cow through the streets in protest over the proposed construction of a Hindu temple in their neighborhood.

These children who watched their fathers stomping and spitting on a cow's head would return to school to learn about cultures and how the animal is considered sacred by Hindus. They would be taught about tolerance with textbooks talking of the friendship between Ali, Ah Chong and Muthu who visit each other's house during festive celebrations.

Restore the bridges and tear down the walls ....

Take care and be well.

Action speaks louder than textbooks. These kids (who watched their parent/s involvement...) are on the road to become one - eventually.

In Malay there is a proverb that says "Bapa borek, anak rintik!"
