(Just introducing a caveat: Do confirm with another Malaysian source whether the event below is definitely going ahead. On one occasion a planned event was cancelled.)
The whole programme definitely exudes an authentic Malaysian atmosphere. For that one day it feels like we are at 'home'."Home, sweet Home".This includes both the fragrance and the style.
Bak kata pepatah Inggeris “Home will always be home”, tiada tempat setanding kampung halaman saya. Saya masih ingat dengan jelas, mengayuh basikal saya untuk melawat beberapa rakan-rakan sekelas saya. Berbasikal melalui lorong,secara bersela tanpa gagal saya biasanya akan bersinggah di gerai cendol kegemaran saya. Hentian terakhir saya selepas ini adalah di gerai bersebelahan untuk memesan rojak khas dan semestinya dengan tidak mengabaikan popiah. Kadang-kadang terdapat tarikan luar biasa yang akan menarik saya ke gerai-gerai nasi ayam, roti canai dan tidak dilupakan juga gerai nasi lemak. Inilah kenangan manis yang saya tidak akan lupakan. Tak tahu pula apa agaknya reaksi doktor saya di United Kingdom berkenaan minat saya terhadap makanan tempatan!!

This will be held on Saturday 23rd September 2017, 10am-5pm at TARRC, Brickendonbury. Once again TARRC will host The Malaysian Merdeka Carnival Day 2017.
Apparently plenty of free parking available which one knows is rare in the United Kingdom. This will be in conjunction with Malaysian National Day.
Every time we attend this Carnival it brings me back many memories of the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Abdul Razak Hussein.
I once had the priviledge of seeing the late Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak at a function organised by my late Uncle, Mr Edwin Nicholas, who was then the Managing Director of Oriental Bank of Malaya Ltd.

Malaysia Day / Merdeka - the gathering came from all over the United Kingdom
On 28th August 2004 we attended a festival in Hertfordshire, England, being held to celebrate Merdeka (Independence Day) for Malaysia. We had a great time there and especially enjoyed the food! The venue was the Tun Abdul Razak Research Centre (TARRC), Brickendonbury, Hertford, Hertfordshire SG13 8NL.
We enjoyed ourselves eating chapatti rotis, but very sadly missed out on durians! This is the first time we celebrated Merdeka Day in the UK. Our thanks go to Mr Azam Ashari for informing us of this event.
This photograph was taken by our son Paul Nicholas. Read an interesting piece of news regarding Paul here.
This was despatched as a Bernama article. It was written by Wan Ahmad Hulaimi, a prominent Malaysian journalist. (Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in response to a question informed Parliament in Kuala Lumpur, that the Bernama Agency receives more than 16 million “hits” every month.)
As one can observe this is a party of late-comers. Delicious food was beginning to get scarce. The lesson behind this is come early. (Yours truly needed to learn this lesson too!)
The gathering await in anticipation, for their numbers to be picked out of the bucket by a Malaysian Minister "have we won the free gift of a Proton car or a fully paid up return flight Malaysian Airlines ticket--- to fly free to Malaysia.
A Prophetic Word for 2016.
Anton delivered a eulogy at his Dad's farewell service, 18th April 2015,in Klang, Selangor,West Malaysia.
Meditate on these scriptures for 2016
Posted 10 July 2015.
Under a strict Vatican ruling the eulogy should not have lasted longer than five minutes under the Pastoral guidance of the local Parish Priest. Thank God the former Bishop of Penang was kind to him. Anton spoke for more than thirteen minutes. He broke all conventions! Hear the eulogy on this video and find out why he spoke under such a burden. Within the talk he sensed and spoke a prophetic word for the year 2016: Please surrender your life totally to Christ Jesus.
The solemn words of our Lord Jesus to you:
Revelations Chapter 3 verse 20:
'I am now standing at the door and am knocking. If any one listens to My voice and opens the door, I will go in to be with him and will feast with him, and he shall feast with Me.
Luke Chapter 10 verse 41-42:
"Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one.
Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
You can view Anton's eulogy to his dad below.View the tribute on the video.See why Anton spoke with such intense passion. You will catch the sincerity of how much our Mum and Dad meant for the Nicholas family. Tears were shed. How could they not be!
The Nicholas family placed the obituaries for our Dad Albert Arasaratnam Nicholas in the following newspapers:
A full page colour obituary in The Star (Malaysia).
A full black and white obituary in The New Straits Times (Malaysia).
A full black and white obituary in The Malaysian Harian Tamil Malaysia Nanban.
A half page obituary in The Straits Times (Singapore).
A full page colour obituary in The Sunday Observer (Sri Lanka), the highest English circulation newspaper in Sri Lanka.
In Canada, the obituary was placed on the Karampon website.
Seriously engage with my 3 Minute short video clip.In 2015 the forces of hell will want to vent and manifest their fury.This has already commenced.
It is not a battle between nations, people, religion or ethnicity. It is actually a vicious battle between Kingdoms. It is Kingdom against Kingdom.
Our families need to be preserved and protected. Video pasted below.
This particular 3 Minute video will encourage you on how to be ready. It is compelling viewing.
A Reverential, deeply moving Prayer Vigil. Watch the You Tube video below.
On Saturday 18th September 2010, we attended the much needed Prayer Vigil at Hyde Park, London.
Between 8 pm and 8-30 pm, darkness had fallen and most of the 80,000 congregants assembled were on their knees, heads bowed in solemn prayer on the grass in Hyde Park.
In devotion and reverence this Hymn was sung,
“Lead Kindly Light”.
Watch the video below and prayerfully observe on how strong the impartation of the Holy Ghost is. Do check it out and see whether the sweet Presence of the Holy Ghost touches you! You can only know through viewing the video. It surely will, for moments of this nature are very rare.

Terutamanya golongan yang berkabung dan bersedih atas kehilangan seseorang yang tersayang.'
