Happy New Year to everyone..hope it brings the best to you, and brings out the best in you!

Admittedly this New Year is filled with sadness. One of the worst disasters ever to hit Asia. The stories and the photos of the people affected are heart rending…I’d pray for these people, but I am bit of an agnostic..I am sure there are others who will remember them in their prayers.

It was nice to see many countries in Europe cancel all new year celebrations in memory of more than 150,000 people who lost their lives. Malaysia cancelled all celebrations too.

During the special aikido class last night to usher in the new year, and we held a minute’s silence for the Tsunami victims.
