Let us be punctual

Punctuality is important in our lives. People who are punctual command the respect of others. Being punctual is also a way of showing respect to other people because they need not wait for you to start a function. Some people often miss their buses, trains and planes because they are not punctual.

In Malaysia, being punctual for wedding dinner is not a norm. So far I haven't attended a Chinese wedding dinner which started punctually. Although it is printed on the invitation card that the dinner will start at 7.00 p.m, it will not commence until 8.00 p.m. or later. Usually I will fill my tummy with something before attending such function knowing too well that it won't be punctual.

I really hope that being punctual will be practised by more Malaysians.
