Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone in the year of the ox!

Have been busy with work and moving house (part 2) recently so it explains the lack of updates here. Will update the weblog with more scouting articles once I have settled down.

Meanwhile, go out and collect more red packets!

Hari Raya Haji

Today is Hari Raya Haji. Would like to take this chance to wish all muslim scouts, family, friends and vistors a happy Hari Raya Haji.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Hari Raya Haji (or also known as Festival of Sacrifice) is a religious festival celebrated by Muslims and Druze worldwide in commemoration of the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah. The devil tempted Ibrahim by saying he should disobey Allah and spare his son. As Ibrahim was about to kill his son, Allah intervened: instead Allah provided a lamb as the sacrifice. This is why today all over the world Muslims who have the means to, sacrifice an animal, as a reminder of Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah. The meat is then shared out with family and friends, as well as the poorer members of the community (Islam names Ishmael as the son who was to be sacrificed, whereas the Judeo-Christian name Isaac).

Also, due to work, I realised I had forgotten to wish our Indian scouts and friends in celebrating their Deepavali on the 27th of October 2008. I apologies for that.
