Happy May Day, Labour Day, Workers’ Day or whatever you want to call it!

As I am part of work force, I celebrate today. It is a great idea to have a day, set aside, especially for those of us who are fortunate enough to still have a job.

With so much uncertainty in today’s world, it seems to be necessary to take stock of what it means to be employed and to be grateful.

For many, it is a distressful time. When there may not seem to be any silver lining, when the ship is sinking, when the rug has been pulled from under one’s feet, “mayday, mayday, mayday” would seem to be screaming silently in their head! It’s too sad to think about it.

We can only hope the tide will soon pass and that we would have done our bit to help whoever we could along the way.

BTW: Happy Birthday, Mom! Love you!

Laila: Oh my, I should thank you for keeping your blog always updated and for the fight against the I.S.A.

I pray each morning for the detainees in Kamunting.

I admire you and I know you are a courageous woman.

May God be with you and keep you safe always.

Thank you so much for your comment.

This day... to remember our sacrifices?

Since I started working, it is really precious to have Public holiday. :)

And now, a lot of people are out of work. Really pity them. I guess they might consider switching field? :)
