My dear Billy,
There’s an old saying that tells us that “A hungry man is an angry man.” In fact, hunger is a most debasing state which induces men and women to commit reprehensible acts which they would never think of committing on a full stomach.

Dear Shakespeare : Moment of greatness

My dear Billy,
Thanks to the live coverage by the MBC of the Parliamentary debates on the Constitution (Declaration of Community) (Temporary Provisions) Bill, I got to listen to most of the speeches of our National Assembly representatives who took the floor.

My dear Billy,
Has it ever occurred to you to marvel at the early morning sun and find inspiration in its golden rays? Or soaked in the rain in wild abandon? Or strolled on the soft sand at the seaside and felt the soothing effect?  As it used to happen with the English poet William Wordsworth, “My heart leaps up with joy whenever I behold a rainbow in the sky.”

Dear Shakespeare : Fast forward

My dear Billy,
“The world is running too fast” is a common, plaintive cry that we get to hear all too often, but the real fact is that we are all caught up in a rat race with no definite end point. We keep running, seldom knowing where exactly we are heading. In the process, we cram the day with a number of unnecessary activities and undertakings.

Dear Shakespeare : Upon my word!

My dear Billy,
I have often wondered why in the beginning there was the word, but always failed to come up with a satisfying answer. Turn wherever I could with my query, there was no explanation. Neither the sages of the East nor the wisdom of the west could quench my thirst.

Dear Shakespeare : Taming the shrew

My dear Billy,
Mr. Philip Li Ching Hum, in his punctured ego and self-admiration, has gratified me with a crop of insult in response to my earlier reaction to one of his texts which had appeared in L’Express daily newspaper.

My dear Billy,
In the beginning there was Nothing, and the Nothing was with God, and God was Nothing. Then God said, “Let there be a sound,” and there was that big bang in the chaos and the universe was born for all of us, although there are many of us who don’t deserve a place in it.

Dear Shakespeare : In hysterical mode

My dear Billy,
You must have read the article “An insult to Shakespeare” i.e. an insult to you, in one of our dailies. The title set me wondering who in their right mind had dared insult you on the auspicious occasion of your 450th birthday.

My dear Billy,
In the good, old days, not very far back, let’s say round about the 1950s, a few people rose above the lot and were well set on the way to success.

My dear Billy,
Since the day the remarkable Remake was flushed down the drain, both the MMM and the MSM have been flaunting their parades of neophytes who have joined their ranks, but not their files. I am sometimes amazed, even bewildered and flabbergasted, by the people who engage themselves in active politics. Aren’t you, my dear Billy? Sometimes, I also admire them too.
