Tonight, I drink in honour of my mentor, my teacher and my friend.
Zainal Alam Kadir, who taught me a lot of the things I know today.
We may have our differences, and will never agree on some things, but I believe that we believe in the big picture.
We do believe in creativity, hard work and compassion.
I will write a more complete homage to the man later, after a few more drinks.
I just wanted to catch the tail-end of his birthday, which is today.
Happy Birthday, Alam. Thank you for being born.
