Last day of 2014

This year has been challenging for Malaysia and Malaysians.  Hopefully with GST coming on 1st April 2015, the challenge is bearable.

Life is so fragile and unpredictable.  Is Mother Earth angry with us for destruction caused by us?  To end the year with floods and storm that caused AirAsia flight to crash?  

Malaysia has been blessed with no earthquake or volcano or typhoon thanks to the location.  The landslides and floods were man-made.  

I don't know.

Let's not start the year with this sadness.  

Tomorrow is going to be a new year.  I feel time is so limited to do so many things before the new year begins.  Here's how to start a new year:

1. Make something sweet
My colleague learned this from her late father.  To start the year with something sweet.  Make a dessert.  I am going to make a cake for puja.

2. Do and say nice things
Don't ever quarrel or argue with anyone.  Speak positively.  Drop the negative attitude.

3. Spend time with loved ones
If you are single, spend time with God.  If you don't believe in God, spend time with friends.  

4. Meditate, do puja
Get God's blessing for a wonderful year ahead.

5. Eat well
Cook a delicious and satisfied meal.  Begin the year with a satisfied nabhi.
