Tell-A-Tale (Part 24): Chapter MMVIII

This chapter was an adventure-filled page turner.

With tales of victorious battles against injustice and prejudice.

Camaraderie and wine that warmed the heart.

Words of feasts dominating the pages.

And dances of fair maidens with their knights.

But above all, there was magic.

Towards the end, an unexpected storm came rushing from the west.

As the last page of MMVIII is read, we hope for the storm to calm. And let the magic unfolds again.


- THE END -



Here’s wishing everyone a good 2009.

We wish MMIX shall be equally becoming except that it will usher in an era of fullblown coming of age for nikonite Malaysians et el against the relentless onslaught of the Southerners and northeasterners and those finally collapsing Westerners , np matter if it takes another overblown 365 days X 12 ...

Happy new beginning from the fighting team
