Gong Xi Fa Cai

恭禧發財, here we are, celebrating another new year, the Lunar New Year.

In Malaysia we had New Year and Maal Hijrah earlier and now we celebrate what is known here as Chinese New Year. Xin Nian Kuai Le, 新年快乐. The new year will be the year of the snake. If I'm not mistaken, I was born in such year as well. Hmmm, interesting.


Many of us are excited when starting something. Even for golfers, a great t-off would make a golfer very happy. However, when we look at how performance of golfers are measured, it is about how a game ends. How many stroke does one need to complete a round of golf. It is about how things ended rather that how they started.

While we certainly deserve to celebrate the coming of any important milestone, we should not forget the essence of the milestone itself. A new year is a new beginning although it does not necessarily erase whatever misfortune or tragedy which happened in the year before. In fact we should reflect whether any misgiving that we experienced in the past was totally fated or it was due to our own doing. Electing a wrong leader would consequently result in us suffering the leadership of somebody who should not be there in the first place. So, rather than complaining about the person, in a new year we should try to learn how to select a person that could be trusted while being competent in the first place.


The way we choose the paths of our future would influence the future. I hope by this time we should have learnt that if we are not careful in deciding the path that will lead towards prosperity, don't blame others if we don't get what we want. If we want things the short cut way, don't blame others if the sense of achievement is only for a short while. In the age and era where many things could be faked, we need to be able to differentiate between sustainable achievements from fake sense of success.

Let me give you a simple example. If we fancy something, we could buy the stuff. We can buy the stuff using the money that we earn or we could borrow the money from somebody else. Therefore, being given money per se does not mean that we are a successful person. If we borrow, we need to pay back. If we are unable to pay back in the future, we will suffer the consequences. So money here money there does not make a society a successful society. Beware of salesmen with offer you products which could disappear as soon as you provide the sales person what he or she wants.


So much of ranting, I hope I don't spoil your mood to celebrate. Remember, celebration  is normally shorter that the period which we experience real life.

I pray to Allah all of us will be accorded prosperity, success and good health in the new Lunar New Year.

Gong Xi Fa Cai.
