The Unforgettable March 8

Three years ago today, Malaysians went to the polls and the rest as they say is history, which includes five states crossing over to the Opposition. Let's take a little peek through the time-tunnel to three years ago to a Reuters report:
(Reuters) - Malaysia's opposition has won unprecedented control of five of Malaysia's 13 states in general elections held on Saturday, opposition figure Anwar Ibrahim said as counting continued on Sunday morning.

"Tomorrow we will start building a brighter future...This is a new dawn for Malaysia," Anwar, de facto leader of opposition party Parti Keadilan Rakyat (People's Justice Party), told reporters.

Keadilan and its opposition allies, the ethnic Chinese-backed Democratic Action Party and the main Islamist party, Parti Islam se-Malaysia, had won the northern states of Penang, Kedah, Kelantan and Perak and central Selangor state, Anwar said.

Politics is never a nice subject to broach on, is it? So let's just leave it at that and move on to something more positive, more pleasant, if you will.

If it's your birthday today, and I know one special person is celebrating it on this date, let me wish you

Happy Birthday!

May each day of the year be filled

..with joy and love, blue skies..

and all things
