2008 is history

(This entry was actually written in 2008, tapi sebab internet down, 2009 baru la dapat post)
.
Assalamualaikum & Goodday
.
This would be my third attempt to post an entry today. It's not the network, it's me. I do have ideas and points, but it just keeps on circling in my head and refused to be elaborated. I'm drained.
.
So I'm going to just write about the obvious. Bye-bye 2008, Welcome 2009.
.
2008, personally, I feel that it went too slowly for the country. I think the country is plagued with too many controversies which are yet to be solved. No thanks to our self centered 'Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat'. I am sometimes saddened that we as voters were forced to vote when there were actually no candidates worthy of being the Yang Berhormat. One candidate is a thief and the other is a racist. Ditelan mati emak, diluah mati bapak.
.
How could this be? Are we so pathetic that we are deprived from having good leaders among us? I suspect that good leaders do exist, but they don't want to surface just yet. They are still hiding in their places of zen and just waiting for the right time to save this country from bigots, racists, thieves, hypocrites etc..etc. However this is just my wishful thinking, I know....
.
We need leaders with testicular fortitude (aku pinjam word ni dari blog Demi Negara). Leaders who are also patriots, who would die for this country, who would spend all of their energies to ensure the sons and daughters of Malaysia inherit a strong and united nation. A nation that is feared and yet respected by others. Can we really have these kind of leaders? Only time will tell. So enough about politics.
.
On a more personal note, I feel that 2008 is fairly a good year for me and my family. We finally moved to our own house, my wife got a hefty increment and a big fat bonus too. Me myself got an unexpected promotion. Alhamdulillah. And to forget we also got a new family member. Akif is nearly one year old. Time flies huh?
.
So now 2009 is here. I embrace the dawn of 2009 with caution. You know la with the prediction of financial tsunami coming. We need to be prepared. Maybe in 2009, I'll be thrifty and prudent. eheheh....Hopefully, if the forecast is true, it'll not be as bad as 97/98. Insya allah....
.
Ok people. Have a great year. Keep in touch!!!
