I used to send out greeting cards by the hundreds, or rather my secretary did, but stopped doing so when I went into early retirement some years ago. I have also not received any since, well maybe a few, at about the same time. Its not that I am a cheapskate or something but somehow greeting cards have never really meant much to me. This is probably a throwback to my sailing days when we seamen will usually receive our mail after many days, even weeks after the fact when we reach a main port of call. A bit of a dampener you will agree.
So here's wishing everyone Eid Mubarak or Selamat Hari Raya Idilfitri as we say it here in Malaysia. To all those driving balik kampung, remember that you may be the best driver in the world but its the nut on the other side of the road you will have to worry about.
