I am impressed with the following paragraph quoted by Sultan Azlan Shah of Perak during his opening speech of the 14th Malaysia Law Conference :-

“ In a multi-racial and multi religious society like yours and mine, while we judges cannot help being Malay or Chinese or Indian; or being Muslim or Buddhist or Hindu or whatever, we strive not to be too identified with any particular race or religion – so that nobody reading our judgement with our name deleted could with confidence identity our race or religion, and so that the various communities, especially minority communities, are assured that we will not allow their rights to be trampled underfoot.”

Beside the Turtle Sanctuary, we visited a goat farm on the way back to Kuantan. This goat farm is just next to a budget chalet named 'Lis Nar Re', owned by a Canadian who reside in Malaysia. The goat farm was just started about 2 years ago and to my surprise, it is very clean, goats and surrounding, it is very well run. Your kids should like this place, so, keep your fingers crossed for a visit to the farm. This farm is at Sungai Ular, Balok, Kuantan. Nice long, shallow water and low wave beach is there for you to enjoy.

Guess who are holding the young turtles?

We have been to Cherating a few times but never visit the Turtle Sanctuary. This time around, we decided to drop by the sanctuary and it turned out to be a quite an educational one. All these while, we thought that we can only see turtle laying eggs at Dungun, Trengganu, Malaysia. But, we were told by the sanctuary officer that we can also see this at Cherating beach. The best time to watch this is during the month of May to July every year.

It is good that we have a sanctuary to protect these rare species of leatherback turtles which is fast becoming extinction. We had the chance to watch a video about turtles and most exciting part is letting go the young hatchlings to the sea during night time. We managed to capture young turtles in action but unable to video the event of releasing the young hatchlings to the sea as there was no proper lighting then.

Apart from this video, you are able to see what my kids learned from this experience. My kids had the chance to hold the young hatchlings before releasing them to the sea.

Just look at it and you can feel its cold and mist, without being there.

Well, this is a meaningful video. Everyone should watch it. I realized from the video that Buddhism is the world's first religion without a 'God' yet it is not a 'religion' per se but more of 'teachings' of a great teacher Buddha.

Description : Over 2,500 years ago, one man showed the world a way to enlightenment. This beautifully produced Buddhist film meticulously reveals the fascinating story of Prince Siddhartha and the spiritual transformation that turned him into the Buddha

Drawing of a 4 year-old girl. Any comment? Probably she trying to draw herself with curly hair.

After looking at her sister's drawing appear in my blog, another girl of mine requested me to publish hers too. This is how I and my wife look like in the eyes of my girl. Handsome? Pretty? Loving couple? Hehe, of course lah.

Drawing depict how Malaysia looks like in the eyes of my little girl.

I have some friends who frequently 'flying' all over the world. I always take the opportunity to 'grab' them before they fly to another corner of the world. I asked them, 'why you still want to come back to Malaysia?' . Their answers to this was that 'because my root is here, though Malaysia is not the best amongst the countries that I set foot on.'

So, we can count ourselves lucky to be a Malaysian. No doubt there are a lot of problems here and there, but I believe they can be solved if we are determined to change for the better. I trust that many bloggers like RPK, Screeenshot, Rocky Bru, Harris Ibrahim, Dr. Hsu's Forum are sincere in wanting to make Malaysia a better place to live at. Just read their postings with open mind, you don't need to buy their 'stories' all the time. Be a 'thinking Malaysia', a 'True Malaysian'.

Whether we like it or not, we are the products of Malaysian policies, system and environment that 'mould' us all since young. We are moulded into looking at things racially, which I admit, cannot be changed overnight. But, we can change this, if we try.
