Welcome to www.sarawakphang.com, the official website of the Phang Clan Association, Sarawak.
The launching of our website signifies our association’s “great leap forward” in its growth and development . It further demonstrates our awareness of the tremendous changes taking place around us and our willingness and preparedness to embrace and be part of these changes.
It is not an overstatement to say that the 21st century is the IT age. Look at the breath-taking and mind-boggling developments of technology that have taken place in the last decade or so. Who would have imagined 10 years ago that we could carry a note book in our hands and search the internet, send and receive mail, conduct e-conferencing, search and research knowledge and information, and play games all at the touch of a button?!!
And now all these can be done with the i-phone or whatever they call it—all incorporated in the tiny gadget which we take with us wherever we go. God knows what other advances we will witness next year, next month or tomorrow!!!!
When I was visiting my son in San Francisco in 2007 we went into the “Apple” show room and I was really dumbfounded to find out that I could see the picture of my house in Kuching from the handphone!!! Today the I Phone is everywhere and we can do all these things anywhere, in any remote corner on earth.
Then what about Facebook, Twitter and so forth? The world is experiencing a communication revolution which is unimaginable. Yet it is happening right before our eyes.
So our web site lauching can be viewed as long overdue but at least we are doing what is necessary and what must be done to connect the Phangs with each other all over the world and to connect us with the world at large. It is very exciting to have this launch as I believe it is a big step for us in Sarawak.
I urge all Phang members and their children, grandchildren and great grand children to be IT literate and benefit from the tremendous opportunities generated by the internet, by the technology that the world offers .
A word of caution: we embrace technology; we live in a very competitive environment of fast changes; we strive to be on top of it all. In the midst of all this do we lose our human, moral and social values ? Do we get sucked into the high tech abyss and become a weird thing fingering, virtualising, devoid of the human touch, insensitive to the fine elements of culture, art, traditions, and personal interactions? Will we become, one day, incapable of feeling the usual sadness, joy, tenderness and care and love and other emotions which have, since the beginning of civilization, made our lives so colourful, so beautiful, ……because we have minimal interpersonal contacts, because our only contacts are through space?
No, we must not let this happen. Its incumbent upon us, parents and leaders, to pass on values, customs, practice, thoughts etc handed down by our forefathers, so that in the vastness of the internet and virtual space we remain every bit a warm, feeling human being.
Once again welcome to www.sarawakphang.com
May you find your interaction with us useful, informative, and heart-warming.
Chung Shin, Phang
