Goodbye 2005. Hello 2006.

In a couple of hours, we will bid farewell to good old 2005. It was a fast year, it was so fast that I could still remember the taste of the dreadful breakfast I had during last year New Year's Eve. Throughout the year, many had perished for the name of race, ethnic and religion, like many years ago and many more years to come unfortunately.

We, the Vendettas - will still be doning our masks - would like to wish everyone a very happy New Year. We would not want to wish everyone a world peace, because that is so faux pas. It is so Ms. Universe or Ms. World, which every beauty pageant for the lack of good word use everytime they are asked the dreadful question.

We, instead would want to wish for more toleration and moderation. We believe this is the two key elements which are lacking in our counterpart of Earth. It is lacking in everyone, including yours truly and the whole Aiya crew, er I mean the Vendettas.

Let's not even go far ahead and think of the future. Let's stick with what is there now. The moderation and toleration is already lacking in the last few Khutbah of the prayers in the mosque.

Word out on the street was they were preaching against the celebration of New Year. They were preaching that they should not celebrate the Masihi calendar, instead they should stick to the Hijrah calendar. I am not saying this is wrong, but where is the toleration in this. People have been celebrating New Year's Eve for years, in big or small scale. They were condemning fellow Muslims who organizes private parties during New Year's eve by comparing them to the Satan.

It is quite sad to see when the new year has not even begin and toleration is still not in our mindset.

But we would like to be optimistic and still hope for a better new year. We welcome you 2006 with a loud pop of champagne and biskut Mary. You have a choice to drink or not. Remember that.
