    May I take this opportunity to wish all Buddhists a Happy Vesak Day. For the no-Buddhists, have a pleasant holiday.

    Hi friends especially Mr Patrick Teoh, the man behind NIAMAH!It is always my pleasure to have you on board. More so when it is for good cause. I will do my best to be there tomorrow. So far so good. Now We only have decent and responsible people like you, Patrick, visiting my blog. So moderation is not necessary for the moment.

    I was there at Buddhist Maha Vihara when PM visited the temple as the Second Prime Minister to do so.It was such an eternal peace as everyone seemed so serene be it BN or PR.PM was in such a sincere mode when he gentle coaxed Nurul Izzah by saying ” Mai duduk sini ” in such a fatherly & gentle manner when he invited Izzah to join him at the main table. His gestures was met when Fong Kui Lun & Wee Choo Keong joined in & talked & laughed as one BIG family.It was a moment of great contemplation. No fancy meal No Fancy Luxury No Protocol but just simple Vegetarian Noodles & Finger Food.I wish Susan was there to capture the essence. There was Not a moment of awkward as He Embraced Every One & Everyone Embraced him as of One Great Family.I wish that Moment would freeze & be there forever! Finally Malaysians as One! Even though for One Moment in Time.Such Bliss to happen in a Buddhist Temple.BTW, the picture in The Star was wrongly captioned. The Monk in it is NOT the Chief High Priest of Malaysia but just an ordinary monk.May All Be Blessed with Eternal Bliss.
