As usual, major newspapers and mediated programmes around the world are doing their annual "Good and Bad" round up of the year. If The Star is to be believed.. then the year has been fraught with disasters (but only di tempat lain-lain) while Malaysia has been blessed with an abundance of foreign visitors in conjunction with VMY2007.. lots and lots of rain (no drought here!).. and of course.. racial harmony that is the envy of other less-happy nations.
