At Midnight Tonight Adieu 2015!

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

Tonight we bid goodbye to this current year that is 2015,

For most Malaysians it has been a tumultuous year alright…

Can’t rightly recall in fine details all the turbulent times we’ve had…

But trust me, all over Malaysia we Malaysians have had a hell of a ride!

 

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

Do recall, as Malaysians, there was the worse mother-of-all floods in early 2015…

This horrendous mass flooding crippled all the East Coast states this year…

A parting gift courtesy of the preceding year, these were the annual monsoon floods ….

Tens of thousands were displaced, some families in Kelantan are still reeling there….

 

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

All Malaysians today are increasingly burdened by one single act passed on 1st April 2015…

For weeks as preamble, countless roadshows across the nation served to prepare all Malaysians..

The impending Goods Service Tax at 6% will lower down prices, it is good for this nation.,

Till today, that simplistic logic of a lowered tax, has drastic reversed effects across the nation…

 

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

The scandal that’s 1MDB, with its many twists and turns, continued throughout 2015…

Venomous charges and contercharges hit the headlines unabated through this year..

The on-going saga, with its numerous side developments, serve up a fascinating read…

Day after day, to this very day, there is typically only unflattering news about 1MDB…

 

At midnight today, adieu 2015!

We may not recall the date May 4th but we do remember a most dastardly deed in 2015…

When 4 armed gunmen stormed a restaurant in Sandakan, Sabah in the crime of the year..

The gunmen made a mockery of our heightened security, the dusk- to-dawn curfew…

The Malaysian army, police and navy were caught napping in the face of this kidnapping…

 

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

Political fanfare took a back seat when something catstrophic happened in mid 2015…

18 climbers were killed in rockfalls while up on the slopes of Mt Kinabalu, early dawn of June 5th..

When a 5.9 Richter scaled earthquake hit mountainous Ranau, and triggered mudslides…

Tales of heroism and individuals acts of courage catapulted mountain climbers into hero status..

 

At midnight tonight, adieu 2015!

Most Malaysians are going to stay awake to bid goodbye to the year that was 2015…

The optimistic ones will be looking forwards to the dawn of a brand new year in 2016..

With the many horrible stories and bad news that have assailed Malaysia this year..

Most of us will not miss 2015 for this annus horriblis is best be forgotten in earnest…

 

At midnight tonight, Adieu and Good Riddance 2015!

Welcome, Welcome, Happy New Year 2016 !
