It's still not too late to wish everyone Kotobian Tadau Tagayo Do Kaamatann2009 and Gayu Guru Gerai Nyamai 2009 to our fellow Sarawakians. There are villages that still and pretty much celebrating it even if the climax of the Kaamatan itself has been held at KDCA, Penampang. Well, I wouldn't actually call the Kaamatan at KDCA as the climax of the celebration. I know I am still celebrating it, one way or the other.
And yes, I am, literally, everywhere again. This festive season, plus the school holiday, really had acquainted me. I have to admit that being at home is not my favourite thing to do especially during the holiday and thank God, I received many invitations to weddings, engagements and of course, parties.
I started the holiday with the right feet I guess. Not to brag myself, I won Anugerah Guru Paling Smart at my school, hahahaha. Funny. Never saw myself as being smart, seriously. I do think that proper attire add onto your self-esteem though.
So okay, I was in KK, was in Keningau, Tambunan, KK again then back to KM. And now, as I’m writing this blog, I am in KK, going to Keningau again this afternoon and then back to KK. Will be in Kota Belud/Ranau to attend some wedding on Saturday. Anyhow, I’m glad because it is the school holiday and I can be everywhere I want.
It’s a blessing, if I were to think about it. Of course it comes to my understanding that some people are just not as lucky as I am, as we are. I’m not that lucky, I must say. I don’t even believe in luck and fate. But, yeah, most probably because I am a Malaysian. A Sabahan to be exact and was moulded up in a place where peace and prosperity are the focal point of living. Exercising respects and tolenrance, well (yeah right?) I mean, are we not grateful for what we have now? Think about those people at Afghanistan. Africa, Somalia. Not to mention the highly anticipated ‘war zone’.
This festive season people, let us share and care. Let the bond of togetherness and respect one another sated in a secure awareness that, in order to maintain and sustain harmony, when you think about yourself, think about others too. Just don’t D&D!
