I have been very busy since last Sunday and getting back to Kuantan on Wednesday and have only manage to sit down today to write you this mail.
I am very glad that I was present at your book launch last saturday at Megaview and the presentation and the talks by your guest and yourself, jolt me into a real wakeup realization. Being not well verse in Mandarin and mostly influence by the english language that guide me to gain knowledge and the ability to communicate effectively, I am quite ignorance on matters related to your speciality and the well being of the Chinese languages, studies, culture and traditions for the Malaysian Chinese.
Even though I manage to catch and understand maybe 30 to 40% of what that transpire on that presentation on that day, I realize the important and the crucial position we, Malaysian chinese are facing in regards to keeping our chinese language and culture.
Being present on that Saturday, make me realize your whole life efforts,determination and sacrifice to promote, uphold this valuable traditions that seem to be vanishing if people like you and your collegeas do not make those heavy commitments to flourish them to grow and to be pass on to the next generation of Malaysian Chinese.
Once we lose this valuable knowledge and history, the word Chinese People is meaningless and will change forever.
You are truly, to me, a Malaysian Chinese National Treasure as far as I am concern and I also think that Pahang Buddhist Association and the Hemodialysis Centre are so lucky to have men like you and Mr Hor to serve and contribute for the society as a whole.
Even though I am a " pisang " as they said, and can only communicate well in English Language, I have always live and follow the right traditions of being a chinese to the best of my abilities and knowledge
Being now exposed and with this realization of the need to uphold this Chinese Studies Culture and History, I am aware that your effort is sometime a very lonely walk but I believe that your strength and your faith and determination will seed and grow this important priceless traditons for the next generation to come.
May the Triple Gems guide you and protect you to accomplish this mission.
