Yes! It is one year since I started blogging.
My thank you speeches:
Thank you to Peter Tan because his blog was the first one I read. I was googling for my church, Cathedral of the Holy Spirit when I stumbled upon his blog. Peter and I do not always agree on many things. Never mind that. But next time I can’t pull his ponytail in church when we disagree on things (after he had gone botak).
I still can’t recall how I stumbled on the blogger who influenced me most in my blogging. Someone who has a balance of sarcasm, humour and humility. The duli yang maha kembang Dr. Liew. I stalk his blog for several weeks and decided to started blogging. Being put on his blogroll is like striking lottery! serves three cups of tea to sifu Dr. Liew was the one who encouraged me to get my own domain and set up my Movable Type. serves more tea
Kervin and Narrowband
My first two commentors! How can we ever forget the thrill of having some strangers dropping by our blog after we make it public right? Kervin of Thousand Words and David of Narrowband. Two nice, young fellows that I hope my sons will grow up to be someday.

Why I think I am going to survive many, many years of blogging:
1) I am such a terrific person with many things to share
2) I see things in my own unique way
3) I am damn free to shake legs. I thank God for that. Hallelujah!
4) I am so loveable! Sometimes, people love to hate me.
5) I have a purpose for blogging.
