ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more Well, Happy New Year 2008 to all. May we continue to live in peace and harmony. And enjoy the prosperity together. Lets gives love and make it as contagious as possible. The whole world need all the loves, so that everyone could enjoy living on this beautiful planet of ours.

As for the family and me, the year 2007 had been a great year. Life has been wonderful and colorful as well. Indeed it has been a good life as always.

To bloggers me included it has been a great year for the blogsphere in Malaysia. The number of blogs continue to grows and I believe by the year end there would be hundred of thousand of Malaysian blogs in cybersphere. Bloggers are Citizen Journalists, so as journalist we have an important as well a responsible role to play in our young democracy. Let us play our roles in a positive way, for ideas and information are the vital components in the making of a better quality of life for all Malaysian. We have a great country Malaysia, lets make it greater in the year to come. Have a nice day. Take care and enjoy the holiday..

Likewise, wishing this very happy, smiling couple (picture) a very happy start to 2008.

Pak Idrus, your passion and seriousness in whatever you have your hands into, have not changed since the years I had made your acquantanve 38 years or so ago.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and other little things e.g. the beautiful photo of the dragon fruit. No wonder you have many fans from around the globe.

Way to go, Pak Idrus.

Happy New Year. Kak Asmah looks so happy in the picture.
I remember 2007 as the year I started blogging and due to that I got to meet great beautiful bloggers. You were the first blogger that I have met.
I will always thank Allah for bringing not only us but our families together.

putri Nazli, thanks for the visit the the kind words on me and my posting. Love has been and continue be the order of the day and I shall continue to give love to all in the best ways I could and My way.

So it has been thirty eight great years already, see how time flies. I could not have done what I did in Malacca especially on the cultural aspect without such great and innovative people like you. The Dondang Sayang traditional dance was your ingenuity and I can safely say that it is your own creation. Before that there was the song and music but no dance and yet you took the initiative to create it. It stays and been performed till today. That's one up for you Lady.

For a Leo we are rich not in money but friendships that I treasured forever. Have a nice day and see you when we are next in Malacca.

Pak Idrus said...
