A brand new month, a brand new week, and a brand new chapter of the year. Good thing as well obviously that it starts on a Monday. 1st of all, Muslims in Malaysia as well as other parts of the world will be ushering in the holiest month, Ramadan on the 10th of July, insya-Allah (God willing). After a month of fasting, Muslims will be ushering Hari Raya Aidilfitri [Eid Mubarak] on the 8th and 9th of August. It will be a joy this time as Singaporeans celebrate their country’s 48th automatic independence from Malaysia on the 2nd day of Eid. As it also falls on Whitney Houston’s 50th birthday (if she were still with us), the NDP may pay tribute to the late diva.
