HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Here’s wishing everyone Happy Holidays.

I’m sure everyone is now in holidaying mood. Partying and enjoying the festive season with family, friends and making new ones. Just a note or may I say a reminder as we celebrate a close of 2010 and the begining of 2011, please think of mother earth and try not to go overboard with wrappings and over packaging of gifts. Remember 3R. Below is a proverb that I think everyone should remember. This is not to dampen you holiday spirit but to make you be more aware.

” Only when the last tree has died

and the last river has been poisoned

and the last fish been caught,

will we realise that

we cannot eat money.”

– Cree Indian Proverb

Signing off – May next year be even better than this year.

HARI MALAYSIA: 16 SEPTEMBER 2009

Sabah_old_map

What is Malaysia Day ? Why isn’t it on the 31st August but instead 16 September ? 31st August 1957 is the day Malaya or better known than as the Federation of Malaya got their independence from British colonial rule.

Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963, the joining together of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia.

Malaysia Day is not a public holiday.

I personally think that Malaysia Day should be given equal if not more importance, since it is the day our beloved nation came together as ONE. In order to get the whole nation to rally in the 1Malaysia concept, everyone should be make aware of the formation of MALAYSIA. It is a day every Malaysia should be proud of, and shout it out loud ” Saya anak bangsa Malaysia.”

anakmalaysia

To all fellow Malaysian wherever you are, HAPPY MALAYSIA DAY.

april18

On 18 April 1982 on the occasion of a symposium organised by ICOMOS in Tunisia, the holding of the “International Day for Monuments and Sites” to be celebrated simultaneously throughout the world was suggested. This project was approved by the Executive Committee who provided practical suggestions to the National Committees on how to organise this day.

The idea was also approved by the UNESCO General Conference who passed a resolution at its 22nd session in November 1983 recommending that Member States examine the possibility of declaring 18 April each year “International Monuments and Sites Day”. This has been traditionally called the World Heritage Day.

World Heritage is the shared wealth of humankind. Protecting and preserving this valuable asset demands the collective efforts of the international community. This special day offers an opportunity to raise the public’s awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as draw attention to its vulnerability.

ICOMOS, the International Council for Monuments and Sites makes a number of suggestions on how to celebrate the World Heritage Day:

  • Visits to monuments and sites, and restoration works, possibly with free admission
  • Articles in newspapers and magazines, as well as television and radio broadcasts
  • Hanging banners in town squares or principal traffic arteries calling attention to the day and the preservation of cultural heritage
  • Inviting local and foreign experts and personalities for conferences and interviews
  • Organising discussions in cultural-centres, city halls, and other public spaces
  • Exhibitions (photos, paintings, etc)
  • Publication of books, post-cards, stamps, posters
  • Awarding prizes to organisations or persons who have made an outstanding contribution to the conservation and promotion of cultural heritage or produced an excellent publication on the subject.
  • Inaugurate a recently restored monument
  • Special awareness raising activities amongst school children and youth
  • Promotion of “twinning” opportunities between organizations, defining areas for co-operation; exchange of speakers; organisation of meetings and seminars, or the editing of joint publications.

On our local front, Perak Heritage Society (PHS) will be celebrating World’s Heritage Day 2009 in Gopeng. It is in conjunction with the official opening of No.28 Jalan Eu Kong, a yet to be named history and culture centre. Make the day free and join in the heritage walk.

“The Perak Heritage Society (PHS) supports hometown heritage and the efforts of the Gopeng history centre in creating a space for the appreciation of the town’s history, for both locals and visitors. We hope that other shophouse owners in Gopeng will get inspired to renew their buildings and put it to economic uses, to create employment opportunities to the young and stop the drain of human resources.

 On this day, various heritage sites in town will share the joy of the occasion and welcome visitors. The PHS will offer a self-guide map to Gopeng with walking trails (at minimal cost), as well as guided walk on request for a donation yet to be set.

 The official opening ceremony begins at 10 am. It will be followed by light refreshments for invited guests, then a guided walk. “

– Law Siak Hong (President, Perak Heritage Society)

For those of you who still have questions regarding this event can contact Mr. Law -Phone enquiries: 017.506 1875.

Spread this news to family members and friends. The more the merrier. See you there. Be apart of history.

aprilfoolsday

Well, it’s the day where some of us go Tom follery. April 1st this year falls on Wednesday. Unlike other holidays, no known history of how it came about. Practical jokes are common practice on this day. April Fool’s Day is a “for-fun-only” observance. Nobody is expected to buy gifts or to take their “significant other” out to eat in a fancy restaurant. Nobody gets off work or school. It’s simply a fun little holiday, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool!

What will I be doing on this day ? Not sure actually. Just a warning to those always in front of the computer – warning from CNN

No joke in April Fool’s Day computer worm

I’m not sure if this is an elaborate joke but “it’s better to be safe than sorry”.

For those of you who can’t get enough of this day, check out more here.

HAVE A WONDERFUL FUN FILLED APRIL FOOL’S DAY. SMILE. 😉 Look where you are going, check where you sit, after all it’s only once a year.
