Let me just put it this way now: In Bulan Observer we observe the moon above and write things that come to our mind.
In the past we have dealt a bit with politics both in the national and local levels. Now things have changed a lot in our country. The government is now doing something against corruption and has indeed put behind bars politicians we thought were untouchables. The economy has developed positively and the overall image of our nation has improved. In the town of Bulan, things have also changed. Yet, we still hope further that our town would also progress more with time and that our local politicians would turn their back completely from corrupt activities and lay down their greedy attitudes but learn to understand better what public service is and be visionaries of their old little town.
It was, however, a nice time communicating with friends who came to join the discussions or contributed some articles to Bulan Observer and who later went away without a trace. This is reality: People come and go. I also went away for a long time only to come back again with a new and lighter concept for Bulan Observer. We hope that we would never be forced again to criticize people for now we just want to write things of literary in nature, things that are pleasant and none offensive.
