While the world fluttered about in economic frenzy, I was busy lazing about at a beach resort in Penang.
We frolicked in the sand and jet skied.
We soaked in the peace and tranquility of our environment even as we put ourselves at increased risk of skin cancer.
Nearby, someone’s pet dog found the courage to pursue its dreams of being an ostrich.
We all had to put in a huge load of effort to enjoy ourselves while the world around us suffered its financial crisis.
