Garabandal International Magazine: Jan – Mar 2014


Hello everyone, it has been a whirlwind of activities whizzing us through the last few months, and in Malaysia we are still in the midst of the 15-day observation of the Lunar New Year.  On this note, we take the opportunity to wish one and all a blessed New Year!

With the good Lord watching over us, we are deeply grateful for all the blessings showered on our family and friends in 2013. We continue to pray for peace in the world and for God’s guidance in all we do, through the year ahead.

Have you tasted a dragon……?

With the lunar calendar welcoming the new year of the Dragon on 23 January 2012, one reads, hears and sees everything about ‘dragons’… but has anyone tasted a dragon….?  A Dragon fruit, to be precise.

Most aptly, nature has coloured it in shades of reddish-pink and textured the skin of the fruit to slightly resemble ‘dragon scales’ – hence the name.

Contrary to what one might expect of a fruit named Dragon, the flesh is not fiery in taste, but rather plain  – to the point of being a bland sort of sweetness….in my humble opinion.

So while the welcoming of the Lunar New Year is celebrated on a large, loud, plentiful scale (all for the auspiciously-correct reasons) in many parts of the world, others may be just happy to have a ‘slice of the dragon…fruit’.  This shows you how to go about it, if the fruit is new to you….

In the meantime, while the norm is to celebrate the festive occasion with excessive eating, drinking and spending, try to spare a thought for the less fortunate, share from your heart, and pray for those who are in need of the Lord’s blessings, especially the world at large.

Wishing one and all, a Happy Lunar New Year.
