Xin Nian Kuai Le! Mahaguru58 wishes all Chinese a Happy New Year!
Gong Xi Fa Cai to all my Malaysian Chinese fellow citizens, bloggers and friends, even to my Islamophobic detractors. :)
My ardent wish is for all Malaysians to celebrate with our Chinese friends on this auspicious day with the best of wishes for a better future for all.
To all Chinese readers of Malaysiakini, I wish you the best for this coming New Year and hope that we can all learn not to forget the wonderful traditions of good neighborliness that we Malaysians have enjoyed all these years and Insya Allah, will continue to cherish and nurture in all the years to come!
As a Program Consultant for Hanyu Study programs with Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Global Hanyu & Culture Centre, naturally I am quite exposed to the rich traditions and heritage of the Chinese people, and am quite happy to be associated with the study of Mandarin.
I speak Hokkien fairly and am learning Mandarin on my own.
Drive carefully when you are on the roads and highways. Celebrate happily with your loved ones and start off this new Year of the Rat 2008 with a better mindset and positive outlook to achieve all your goals!
All the best from Mahaguru58!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!
