September 2015, a month of many festivities.
August 2015 is over. September 2015 should be a great month for Malaysians as there are quite a number of festivals which fall in this month alone. Or I shall say public holidays that definitely sound better. Just as the Merdeka holiday concluded yesterday, we are now anticipating for the Malaysia Day holiday on this coming 16th September. Then, a week later, we will observe another holiday; Hari Raya Haji that is to be celebrated by our Malay friends. Then, there’s Mid-Autumn Festival for our Chinese community by end of the month. Unfortunately, there isn’t any holiday granted for that one. Too bad.
I have just heard the news of passing of a great director named Wes Craven. He passed away due to brain cancer two days ago at the age of 76. Most of you may not have heard his name but he is the one behind famous slasher films like ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ franchise featuring the iconic Freddy Krueger character, the one that kills you in your dream. He had also directed many other horror films in the past like the entire ‘Scream’ series that featured the Ghostface, The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House On The Left, The Serpent And The Rainbow, etc. He had also been involved in other genre of movies besides than horror. Besides than being a director, he was also a writer, producer and an actor. I do enjoyed many of his horror films. Rest in peace, Wes Craven.
Well, as we enter into September 2015, this month actually marks the 7th anniversary of my blog here. Couldn’t believe I have already been blogging here for seven years. Time flies. It’s always my passion and interest to put down interesting things that I would like to share with my fellow blog readers here. And that passion unbelievably stays on till this far, for 7 years, and not showing any sign of diminishing yet. I’m quite sure that my blog will continue to grow and celebrates its’ 8th, 9th, 10th anniversary and so on. For now, to mark the upcoming 7th anniversary of my blog by the end of this month, my blog header would be highlighting the number ‘7’.
Ohh…haze returns to parts of Malaysia recently and it is affecting KL too. The visibility is reduced as even the nearby buildings appeared blurry from our sights recently. I can also smell the polluted air surrounding us outside. It’s the season again when there are a lot of forest fires and hotspots from Indonesia that carry the haze to us as one of their neighbouring countries. But I’m quite relieved when the authority announced that the haze this year will not be bad. Let’s hope for that at least since haze problem is like inevitable for Malaysia every year. The only thing we can do is to stay indoor as much as possible, drink more water, reduce outdoor activities, and wear mask if you are really feeling not comfortable.
Anyway, have a wonderful month ahead!
