2K18 – What Lies Ahead?

Assalamualaikum (to all my fellow Muslims)! Happy Twenty Eighteen or Two-Thousand-and-Eighteen (whatever or whichever).

First of all, Good New Year News. For those of you who often ply Sg Rasau and Batu Tiga in the Klang Valley as well as the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) in JB and Bukit Kayu Hitam, Kedah, you will be delighted to know that starting today, at the stroke of midnight,when the fireworks come off, all collections at those 4 toll plazas will cease. That announcement came from our (Malaysia’s) very own (6th) Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib bin Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak during his tabling of this year’s (2018) budget on the 27th of October last year (2017).

As speculated, the fourteenth edition of the (Malaysia) General Election will eventually take place this year. Will Najib-led Barisan Nasional (BN) finally be able to recapture Selangor, Penang, and long-time Kelantan this time around?


Here are sporting events that will take place this year.

2 Olympiads, the Winter and the Youth Olympics will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea and in Buenos Aires, Argentina, respectively.

The XXI Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

The FIFA World Cup football (soccer) tournament will be held in Russia from 14th June to 15th of July.

The Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia.


These people will turn a year old (or young).
