Facebook is now offering usernames to make it easier for people to find and connect with its members. When your friends, family members or co-workers visit your profile or Pages on Facebook, they will be able to enter your username as part of the URL in their browser. This way people will have an easy-to-remember way to find you. We expect to offer even more ways to use your Facebook username in the future.

Dayak volunteers needed

Dear friends and fellow Dayaks who are reading this post,

I share with you a respond to my status over at Facebook made by the ADUN for Pujut, YB Andy Chia. The respond was made with regards to the purchase of a building in Miri, by Mercy Malaysia, which shall serve as a shelter for those who needs a temporary place to stay while in Miri.

Happy 2009, James.

You know, Mercy Malaysia is raising fund to buy a house to provide temp shelter for family members of those who come to Miri from the interiors to seek medical treatment at the Miri General Hospital. I am the advisor to the Fund Raising Committee. We have Chinese, Malays, Indians, but looks like no Dayak, brother. This home will serve mainly the Dayak community. I think Dayak should volunteer lah, brother, and must help too.

What a wonderful place Miri is, huh? Where got racial barriers? We are all brothers and sisters no matter what colour.

Must catch up for a chat, huh?

All the best!

I feel bad while reading the respond from our YB in Miri.. but maybe, the Dayaks were not inform of this mission earlier by Mercy Malaysia. Hence, I will take the cue and bring some of my Youth Committee to be part of this mission. Personally, I am still in the dark about how to go about with this mission, but, we need to start somewhere and not wait for others to do it.
