Meng Lei's office was proven to be slightly under-sized to accommodate the crowd. It was a fun-filled and jovial session with bursts every now and then. We kicked it off with a toast to Barack Obama for his extraordinary success and hovered over this glittering political star for a while.
Liong (www.thesibu.blogspot.com ) was kind enough to volunteer to snap a shot for the toasting session. Liong's photography is simply splendid!
Barack Obama's victory was predictable even right from the start of the race. When he won Hillary Clinton in the nomination to run for the presidency, I knew Obama had crossed the biggest hurdle - colour.
The Americans are admirably broad-minded enough to accept a black.
Obama's win was certainly not coincidental. The disgruntled Americans over the devastated economy had thirsted for a dream of change. Obama was timely to ptovide the voters a jolt.
But can he deliver the American dream? It is not impossible, but Obama has to move within a tight range.
In front of the President-elect is a bumpy road!
