Food, life, and fun in my "kampung,"(village), KL (Kuala Lumpur). Did I mention "food?"

Every soul has a story.

Blogging's been an eyeopener for me. Having just scrolled through an endless list of people who have just updated their blogs, I felt like I did when we saw the Milky Way on a clear night in Fraser's Hill..

There were billions of stars in the sky and all of them came from different points in the universe and had travelled innumerable light years to get to a point where we could see them. It was awe inspiring. It was a point when I felt a unity, a connectedness between everything. Each blade of grass beneath my feet, each breath I took, Allan next to me, the granite walls of the bungalow we lived in all seemed to be, for a split second, woven together like one huge tapestry.

That's how I felt when I looked at that list. The billions of voices and thoughts and ideas existing out there. The points of view and the various truths that people hold dear. All valid. All sacred in their own right. Even those who are immersed in dark pools of misery and despair. Everything works to God's plan.

And I felt an odd measure of peace. Strange neh?
