|A high point in public volunteerism especially in living the Bintulu story as President for BIFA during the intervening period of the frist and second economic boom of Bintulu.|
It was just about two months ago that I decided to compile all the scattered blog postings I did into one blog but with a difference. The blog is called 'Living the Bintulu story'. It is a discipline that I put onto myself to ensure that my interest to write a full history of Bintulu is kept warm and wanting. More specifically I want to put the history of Bintulu in a context that is meaningful to me first and foremost as a writer. For that matter, I am blessed because I'm living the times. Secondly, I need to consistently keep up with finding or 'digging' more facts through whatever sources that present themselves and write the developmental story of Bintulu within the confines of a periodisation scheme that I created. Next year will be the beginning of what I call the 'Millenial era' for Bintulu. This Millenia era as far as I can see at this stage will be expanded into the 'Industrial decade' and subsequently the ' Post-Industrial era'. For instance I did a lot of volunteer work during the intervening period of the first and second boom. During the fourth boom I began to put my mind into conceptual thinking of the Malaysian garden, ecological farming, nature park, and more history writing. I see next year ( start of the Millenial era) as a busy year for even more research, writing and blogging on the evolution of a millenial society in Bintulu. All these efforts to ensure that I come closer and closer towards writing the full history of Bintulu – 'Sleepy no more'.
