I received this sms from a friend. It reads, "May Stuart Little bring u comfort, Mickey Mouse bring u joy, Ratatouille bring u abundance of good food and most importantly, Minnie Mouse bring u ultimate beauty & pleasure! Happy Chinese New Year (Year of the Rat) with lots of laughter, Love and Prosperity." And guess what though I hate rats but those rat mentioness made me laugh.
Happy Chinese New Year 2008 to everybody. The Chinese will welcome the year of the rat come 7th February 2008. Rat symbolizes in the Chinese zodiac is associated with aggression, wealth, charm, and order, yet also associated with death, war, the occult, pestilence, and atrocities. In ancient time rat was welcomed as a protector and bringer of material prosperity. It is the first of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.
Well that is Rat for Chinese. For me personally, this year is a year of good opportunity or opening in terms of business, family and relationship. It will definitely be a year of blessing and better than the year before. I have seen new business opportunity in my practice especially through my involvement with BNI. There will be an expansion of the firm with the coming of a new partner. I also see an opportunity to do more banking work besides the normal civil litigation, conveyancing and intellectual property practices.
For Malaysia in general, the start of the rat years will see either a victory or an upset for the Rakyat. My guess would be within this two weeks latest for Parliament to dissolve to pave way for the 12th general election. Looking at the news the past weeks, especially two days ago when the Prime Minister suddenly told reporters that he has the 'found the inspiration' in calling the election soon. Everyday the mainstream newspaper have already campaign for the Corrupt and Scandalous BN. UMNO, day by day getting more and more arrogant. The same old same would be nominated in the coming election. And Tun Dr. Mahatir have asked voters to choose clean and straight candidate even though the candidate comes from the Opposition.
So what is my take? Or rather my hope. The 2/3 majority will be slashed not only in Parliament but all state assemblies as well. It is my hope that every seat fought would be an ONE ON ONE against the BN. It would be more dramatic to see the wrestle of Penang by DAP-PKR coalition from BN.
This election I believed will be more expensive, more abusive and more corrupted than the 2004 election. More monies will be spend unnecessarily and promises will be made so as the like of the 2004 pledge by the Prime Minister to curb corruption. Enough is enough, Malaysians are not stupid to believe the lies of BN. What can we all do? JUST CHANGE IT.
Dare to Change...
