Joyeux Noel 2008

we have a new addition to the family this X'mas, little Etienne!

Etienne, mummy Jennifer and daddy Emanuelle spent X'mas with us again.

My mum the proud grandma with Erin, Mila and Dani

My family - mum Nelly, sis Carol and brother Nick

One of the most exciting things about being part of a multi-racial family is that we celebrate almost every festive event. Our kids enjoy and look forward to dressing up each Christmas, Hari Raya as well as Chinese New Year and Deepavali. We host a Hari Raya get-together each year, Mum and Carol host Christmas and Chinese New Year, and we all go over to my brother-in-law Kuna's family home to celebrate Deepavali with them. Our kids need to know that what makes us unique and strong as Malaysians is how we are all made up of many different races and religions, yet everyone gets along or should get along) and have full resect and tolerance towards each other's personal beliefs. We don't impose our personal beliefs on others and don't expect anyone else to impose their judgement or standards on the way we should think, live and behave.

I pray Malaysia will have a brighter and better year in 2009, and that we will all learn to live together more peacefully, and appreciate how blessed we are to be living in a country that is fairly safe, fairly secure and economically and politically not as messed up compared to so many other countries around us.

Peace, love and happiness, to all of you have been following my blog.
