In loving memory of father on Christmas' eve

When I was young, my father used to buy roast turkey slices from the Cold Storage at the end of Clare Street to add festive mood to the Christmas Eve family dinner. Even up till now, I still cannot figure out why the name of the bird is exactly the same with that of a country but what I have never forgotten is that father always enjoyed Bing Crosby's White Christmas which was then an iconic American song. I remember father also loved Doctor Zhivago 's theme song very much.

May Mrs. Sybil Kathigasu' s spirit shine forever

The Turkish name for their own country is Türkiye.
"Turkey" is a bird. And the English, trying to spell the name of the country, converted it to something they were familiar...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

I think we should be thankful we can celebrate this great festive season in peace. Christians in Iraq are having to exercise extra caution because of escalating violence, whereas our brethren in Gaza are facing threats of different types.

CNN had a report the other day saying that the war on Iraq had cost the Bush administration $600bn, exceeding US involvement in WWII. Worse, US soldiers in Iraq are finding life hard as the US dollar devalues and is now at one of the lowest points in history. Everyone on the payroll is feeling the heat now, which is sad.
