If Roses Grow In Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven...

Allah, please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my mother's arms

and tell her they are from me.

Tell her, I love her and miss her,

and when she turns to smile,

place a kiss upon her cheek,

and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,

I do it everyday.

But there is an ache within my heart

that will never go away...

Malaysia Tak Boleh

As we reflect on the past year, let’s resolve to be strong and wake up to reality in 2014.

ALTHOUGH this is my first article for 2014, I’m actually writing this still in 2013. So let’s call this a transitional article with a review of the past year and maybe some hopes for the coming one.


Personally, 2013 was not a bad year for me. I made two resolutions at the beginning of it, which I have mostly kept.


But I can’t say the same for our beloved country.


The year 2013 was one where we became more fractious, more disunited, more angry. Some people, to my mind, have completely lost the plot.
