Merry Christmas

Super Short Talk: It didn't hit me how real the economic crisis was until Komag decided to close down its Kuching Branch. I guess I was dead wrong for being happy every time I see the KLCI index drop after all.






When something is practiced repeatedly, it becomes a ritual as time grows old. And soon enough it loses its meaning or at least, people tend to forget it. Like sex in a happy marriage. Christmas I believe is one of them.



Christmas was first celebrated to mark and honor the birth of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately it has turned into many things today. At first it was "Santa Clause" who never existed, then it became "midnight sale" in every mall. And now it is also the most expensive time in the year to get a turkey. Do people eat turkey on Christmas or Thanksgiving really? We Malaysian are such that if you tell us American eats roti canai in Christmas, we will follow suit.



Even the names annoy me sometimes, calling 25 of December a Christmas Day was fine all along. Merry Christmas is a great tag line. You know, like "KFC", "Pizza Hut" and "fuck you". Then soon enough, some very stupid people suggested it was too long. So they also call it Merry Xmas instead. And the 'X' here gives people the idea that it signifies nothing, because X is an unknown in algebra. For those who haven know, 'X' in Xmas is actually an Anglo Saxon abbreviation of "Christ". And seriously, I don't even know what Anglo Saxon is.



I got to say that Christianity is the most tolerant religion around. (Christian readers please don't come and tell me that Christianity is not a religion but instead it is a relationship bullshit, I have been around in churches long enough I can come up with 31 different phrases to start and end a prayer, I am catering for general people here, some of you Christians have everything but common sense, and stop pretending you don't watch porn sinners!) If you are to write a novel about other religion that says their god is gay or is married to a prostitute and has a descendant until today. I bet they will probably slice you into pieces like ham, eat your flesh, drink your blood and crush your bones. But Christians just kept quiet and preaches against it that's all. We are good.




Back to what I was saying just now, Christians are so good and tolerant people are even calling "Christmas" Happy Holiday. Now that is worst than Xmas. That's like calling "Kentucky Fried Chicken" KL Roasted Duck! You Duckass, you don't like calling it Christmas for being Christmas, pack your bags and go back to your office and work.



My point today gentlemen is none other than:

When something is practiced repeatedly, it becomes a ritual as time grows old. And soon enough it loses its meaning or at least, people tend to forget it. Like sex in a happy marriage.

With that I wish all of you a

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
