Raya greetings to you all – a new world beckons


As night falls on this first day of Raya, I couldn’t let this day pass without wishing you all Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Here’s a song from the heart – “The Night When The Moon Is Surrounded By Stars”, a P Ramlee song.

And another charming one below. This one from Saloma. A different world, a different kind of songwriting in those days.

I haven’t been writing so much over the last month. That’s because I have been bogged down with clearing a backlog from work. I missed all the discussion surrounding the two-hour “Parliament sitting”, much of the movement control order and the pandemic.
But let’s look at what the future holds in the coming days – the post-Covid-19 situation, the economy, which should be part of the ecosystem, the backdoor government and in Penang, and the fate of the disastrous “PTMP” and other mega projects.

This post festive period no joy as many many shall bite the dust (retrentchment, closures, bankcrupts).

Stay modest. Forget bin chui. Save for thunderstorms.
