Welcoming 2009Posted: January 1, 2009
It’s tradition, isn’t it? To usher in the New Year, assuming that it will be a greater, better year than the one that we just had. Or maybe that’s just the optimist in all of us, wishing for a brighter year ahead.
2008 has been a year of ups and downs, from whatever perspective. I’m sure all of us can relate to that, whether in our personal lives, or in the political scene in Malaysia or elsewhere, and even economically.
But every year has it’s ups and downs. And I’m pretty sure 2009 will be no different.
There will be days when it seems like the sun has decided to rise from the west, and there will be days when it feels like there are half a dozen rainbows in the sky.
But here’s hoping that there will be more ups than downs in the coming year. Like the optimist in all of us.
Happy New Year everyone!
