A short reflection...

Well, the year 2005 had been a great year for Me and the rest of the family.. We all had a great time in one way or the others... One of the greatest thing of been a Malaysian is that we all get to celebrate all the major festivals of the world and last week was Christmas, so on the Christmas eve being Saturday we decided to have a family dinner at the restaurant at the local club nearby... The whole family of three generations were there, us the Grandma and Grandpa, our daughter and her husband and their kids and another daughter who is back from Boston... So here we are on Christmas eve having a family dinner at a restaurant all decorated for Christmas, the waiters and waitress were all dress up in Christmas dresses and of course there were Santa as well... What a Christmas without a Santa! As I have said before I am not a member of any club but in this case non member are allowed to dine here...Out daughter and son in law are members so for tonight we get a ten percent cut for been with them...Anyway we decided to foot the bill for this dinner... Unlike the other day it turn out to be a great dinner and we all really enjoy it. And as usual little Adibah, who we call princess, in her pink dress were really enjoying herself at this party of a sorts... She would walk and wonder around the spacious dining area and joyfully run back to the table smiling with that cheerful look...It makes me real happy to see her in such a joyful and delightful manner.....Our grandson, the first boy in the family have grown up to be a fine young boys and take to the cyberspace like duck to the water... He love to tell stories of the books that he has just read and want to do a degree in Computer...Well it is at least his dream now, what it would eventually be I have to just wonder, but never, never underestimate kids today's, they are a new breed of our species that could do anything once they set their mind to it... We use to say that the sky is the limit...To today's kid it is no long true, the sky is their new frontiers in their never ending endeavors in search for a better tomorrow.....These kids nowadays are so different from my generation..In that early age already have visions of what they want to be when they grew up....A forth night ago our eldest granddaughter got 7 A's in her PMR [lower secondary examination] and for the family it is worth a celebration for her excellent achievement......I have always emphasize that education is very important for their future and I think they got the message and at present are doing well indeed in their studies..... We were all really delighted with her achievement in this examination and in a way tonight's dinner is a sort of a celebration for that achievement...I guess that is indeed a great gift to the family for the year 2005 and it is indeed a great way to end the year 2005 with that optimistic note.... Hey! Wait a minutes..The Moslem festival of Eid Adha would be on January 10 whereas The Chinese New Year festival is around the corner as well...This year it fall on January 29, 2006..So here we goes again, another festivals to celebrate....What a life....Have a nice day....

I am driven to success by the master teachers from the past. I really enjoy people like Wayne Dyer, Greg Vanden Berge and Tony Robbins. Im writing to this blog for selfish reasons, I want to see everyone live the life of their dreams. I am Living my life to the fullest and it is due to a book writen by Greg Vanden Berge . Master Goal Achiever and Author of Start Living Your Dreams Today.. A Great Book from the masters.. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did..
