Bonne Année 2008!!

Exactly one more hour to go before the arrival of a brand new year and I'm sitting here in the cybercafe trying to think of what my new year resolutions would be. Been spending the past one hour trying to draft the plan for the brand new year, but nothing came out.

*blink blink*

Still can't think of any. Maybe my brain is shutting itself and refuse to let me access it. Perhaps it is programming itself to clear off all the memory and cache in it? Maybe it's trying to archive the old storage spaces so that there will be more space to accomodate new informations in the coming year? Whatever it is doing, I can't come out with the resolutions!!

Oh crap! What a lame excuse.

To tell the truth, I am just plain lazy.
Lazy to think of this stupid resolutions (Who is the smart ass who came up with the idea of making new year resolutions anyway??)
Lazy to make good use of my brain.
Lazy to do anything.
Maybe I am too exhausted from working too much. Hey, I have been clocking in every day for the past one and half months (with only 5 days of rest so far).

But that should not be an excuse. I don't like giving excuses for didn't get things right.
It makes me feel so irresponsible and shows as if I am tyring to shirk from responsibility.

There is a proverb saying "If one fails to plan, then one plans to fail". How true. And to say that I am the planner for this project I am attached with now in Lumut, it is indeed shameful as I can't even come up with my own plan! Shame, shame, shame!!!

This is my life and I should take charge of it.
It's me who should be should be doing planning for my ownself.
No one will be responsible for my life, other than my ownself.
Hence, it's me who should chart the road for myself.

That is, to be responsible for my ownself. I need to take charge of my life and be answerable to actions that I take. There is no time to waste. And no more coming up with lame excuses.
I need to get rid of words such as "I am tired .... ", "Lazy-lah.... ", "No time to do this lah.... " and etc. These are negative words which I must avoid at all cost as it's like black hole which sucks all the energy out from my life.

Yeah, it is pretty vague and quite difficult to quantify the achievement, but nevertheless, it's me myself who should be judging if I did keep to the resolutions, or otherwise.

Well, it's not that bad after all. The last one and half hours wasn't really a waste.
I did indeed came up with my very own resolution, at last.

It is now 11.50m and it's time for me to log off. Need to get a good night rest before embarking on a new journey (and also going to clock in at office tomorrow morning). Looking forward to a great year ahead!

Hereby wishing you all a very happy spanking new year 2008!!!

Goodbye 2007

The clock is ticking down. 2 more days left in the calendar year before ushering the start of a brand new year. Looking back into the past 363 days, let's take a walk on what happened to my life throughout the period.

1. Change of job. [Jumping from one shit to another, almost...]

2. Moved from Puchong and back to Kepong. Woo hoo!! [What other places which has pasar malam every night other than Kepong?]

3. Transfered to Lumut. [Feeling energetic for the first time while at work]

4. First trip to offshore. [Spending 5 boring days on the platform and the accomodation vessel, all surrounded by waters. And it took me 5 days to readjust and balance myself to the ground condition]

5. First time on a helicopter ride. [What other air transportation mode I have not tried, other than chopper and plane? Hot air balloon seems tempting]

6. Almost drowned while attending a underwater escape training. [It was freaky all right. The few seconds of breathlessness seems like eternity. And I swear the incident is still fresh on my mind, even though it happened 5 months ago]

6. Delta Rover burnt to the ground. [No signs of the owner rebuilding the climbing gym again. Had to go to that super expensive Camp5 to satisfy my climbing craving. Crap!]

7. Blogging. [Only meagre 68 entries in this year. How lame~~~]

8. Had a pet dog of my own, almost. [Hope Lil' Russell is happy being back with his mummy]

9. Attended M.A.N.Y weddings!! [And I foresee more to come. Any wonder why my pockets are full of holes?]

10. Signed up with the National Library. [Only RM1 for membership and loads of books to choose from. What a bargain!]

11. Actively following the political senario in Malaysia. [I feel so disgusted! I am ashamed to call myself a Malaysian]

12. Attended a rally for the first time. [And it made me feel even more disgusted! Our government is worse than Talibans! I seriously thinking of migrating. There is basically left little hope in this country with the current leadership>

13. First time riding on a horse. [Yii harrr!! Feel like a cowboy. Thanks to Ho Sang and his wedding gimmick]

14. Reading books!! [Borrowed 30+ books, but only managed to finish reading less than half of them. Sigh]

15. Jamming sessions! [I have to brush up my guitar skill and to learn to play more songs! And I hope the rest of the band members will do so coz it's embarassing to play out-of-tempo]

16. Facebook.. And Scrabulous. [I am basically addicted to this game. Have to secure more victories!]


As the new year approaches, I guess the norm for everyone is to come up with new year resolutions. And what would mine be? Should I make up a list like other people do? One lazy side is telling me that there is no point in making a list which will never be fulfilled, while the other part of me is crying for a plan to guide my way through 2008.

Let's see. I have two more days to decide which side should I listen to. Tummy is growling like mad now, and I haven't have my dinner yet (It's 8pm now. Been working full day at site today)

Till then, happy holiday and a very happy new year to everyone!!

The Knight And His Bride

Once upon a time, there lived a knight and a lady in the kingdom of Far Far Away. Both of them were studying in the same school. It all began on one faithful day, where they met each other for the very first time, and love sparked the minute they laid their eyes on each other. After years of courtship, the knight promised to the lady to take her as his woman. And this is the story of his journey to fulfill his promise....

The knight in shining armour with his mighty stallion ready to fetch the maiden bride, living in a castle faraway.

However, the knight apparently got confused with his own identity and thought that he was a cowboy instead. Donning the cowboy hat, he cried out to his mighty stead to start moving. But the stead did not make a move.

He cried out again and kicked the stallion, hoping that it will gallop its way ahead. Still, no movement at all. Frustration appeared on the knight's face.

It was now apparent that the knight, or cowboy wannabe, does not have the horse riding skill. Later, he had to be led to his maiden bride by the horse trainer. He could only laugh to cover his great embarrassment.

And the knight's loyal comrade laughed at the mighty knights incompetency.

After hours of treading along the torturous path, they finally reached the destination.

Upon reaching the maiden's castle, the knight and his loyal comrade had to face with the 4 guardians.

They had to undergo tests, failing which would render the knight unable to produce offspring to continue his legacy. Nevertheless, test such as crossing over gigantic gate, eating the 4 deadly food, dodging the cursed staff, chanting love hymns did not weaken the spirit of the group.

Eventually, it was bribe of a thousand gold coins to the greedy 4 that cleared the path.

The knight quickly made his move and finally succeed in reaching the maiden's chamber.

Taking the hand of the fair lady, the knight kissed the bride and embraced her in his arm.

And the lady reciprocate and an exhange of bridal vow took place.

The knight and the lady were now officially known as Mr and Mrs Chan.

Congrats to both Ho Sang and Yee Lee.
May you both live the many years of joy and happiness together!

Disputes with Bitches

Cool place. Nice view of Lumut river from my place. Walking distance to the town. Amenities such as banks, 7-11, sundry shops, KFC, etc is just a walking distance away. Long stretch of waterfront with nice view of the river bank (nice place to jog, by the way). Greenery and nice landscape around. Ample parking space. Nice swimming pool below. Astro readily available. Cool ambience of the living room. Air conditioned rooms. Water heater for shower. Fully furnished kitchen. What is there for me to ask for? When I started being comfortable with the place and the surrounding, now you want me out?

When people start barging in and claim that the place is theirs, I am definitely pissed!
Reasons such as can't stand smoke scents, unable to share place with the opposite sex, religion issue, bad feng shui, to god-knows-what-else excuses, THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Trying to kick me out of my place, and relocating me to a second grade house with no amenities nearby and no greeneries in sight, THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. And worse still, there is no internet access and no cybercafe nearby. And to drive a few kilometres away to get online, or just to buy food and stuff, that just pisses me off. Never mind if I have forked out money for the annual membership (it cost only RM10 anyway), but being unable to access internet, that just make my blood boiling like mad.

I don't bear any ill feelings towards the female (other than some gender/sexist remark blurted out from me sometimes, sorry to say), but this incident made me feel that being a female is (100%) equivalent to a BITCH. You have to know that you are here for a construction job and you should know that it is an on-site job. There is bound to be lots of guys around, especially smokers too. If you cant bear working with guys, and smokers, than I suggest you to go back home and go play masak-masak. Or you can go play with your barbie dolls.

And being here on the job doesn't mean that you have the right lay your rights on people's belonging. And don't try to bitch around with the boss complaining about being uneasy staying with guys. If you don't feel comfortable with guys, then why take up the offer to come here in the first place? And if you don't feel comfortable with guys, then why the fuck do you share the company's van with us? Didn't the religious fanatics in Middle East (your religion, that is) banned women from sharing transportation with men who are not of the same blood? Why don't you raise this to the boss too and ask for an all-bitch-only car?

Fuck it. I am now offering you my comfy room, and I am willing to sacrifice myself and moving to a much smaller room with only a wall fan. Let's see if we can work out a thing or two here. But let me make myself clear. I don't fucking bother to see your "spectacles" hang dry, and I don't fucking bother to know what you wear during the night when you sleep. No, I don't want to know whether you are a lesbian or bisexual. Spare me from letting me know if you have shaved or not. I am not fucking interested on you, on your family, on your ancestors, on your pets, etc etc. In fact, I don't even fucking bother to know whether you are indeed a woman or not.

Look, you have bulldozed your way onto my territory and kicking me out, but I am on the other side willing to accept an unfavorable position (to me). All I want is to continue to stay in this place of mine, and continue with my life, while you continue yours. Once this project is completed, you go your way, and I go mine. Period.

Now, if that also you are not willing to accept, then to the hell you go, you BITCHES.

Greetings from The Jetty...

It's my third day here in Lumut on a long term assignment. The project I am involved in is scheduled to finish in June 2008, but I am betting that it will be delay till late July or August. Call me a pessimistic, but from the current outlook, there is basically no progress at all even after almost one month plus had passed since the project was awarded to my company.
Nevertheless, will do whatever I can to assist and expedite this.

Left KL with a heavy heart, especially when I was asked to mobilize in less than 24 hours notice, with no preparation at all. (mental preparation, that is) :( No more mamaking with frens, no more rock climbing, less time going back home to visit mum, no more going lepaking at The Curve. Sigh... And the heavy drinking session the night before departure to Lumut didn't really help at all. No thanks to Philip, Ho Sang and Kah Wee.. Drove over 240km to Lumut the next day with the high level of alcohol in my blood. Thank god a colleague accompanied and keeping me wide awake along the journey.

Anyway, came to Lumut with a heavy heart and things in my mind. Thought that I would not be able to adjust well. After all, I wasn't really close to my colleagues except for a few. Yeah, pretty sucks to feel alone after spending about 4 months in a company. And a boss who keeps on intimidating and terrorizing most of the time doesn't really help in boosting one's self morale and motivating one to excel.

Oh well, enought of complaints.

So far, my third day at the fabrication yard went well. Apartment where I stay is nice, fully furnished. Cable TV (astro), air conditioned, heater, kitchen, swimming pool, and serene environment.. Well, what else can I complain?

Though Lumut is a small (it take less than half and hour to walk around the town), but I have a feeling I will love this place. I took a stroll around town jsut now after my dinner and I covered the waterfront area (the jetty area) in less than half an hour. The tourism minister have spent quite an amount of money to decorate this place. I shall take photos tomorrow and upload them here. THe waterfront area are nicely decorated. Not much cars around, and there is traffic jam at this town happens only once in a blue moon. Just nice for someone like me who detesté traffic jam. The only places recognizeable are KFC, Maybank, 7-11 and CIMB bank. :)

Oh well, will stop for now. Will explore more of this town this weekend. And not forgetting Manjung and Setiawan town which is 15 minutes away from here. These 2 towns are much more "happening" compare to Lumut. Shall jog around town tomorrow and take some snap shots of this beautiful place. I have a feeling the shots taken will turn out nice.

Malaysia's New Nursery Rhyme

Fungus appearing on the walls of hospital buildings.
Crack on the bridge columns.
Leak in the Parliament.
Collapsed roof in the Court Complex.

And what do we have in store now?


Yes, by all mean, please support Barisan Nasional if you want to see more building collapse!!
Perhaps we should create a new nursery rhyme on Malaysia.
"Malaysia is Falling Down" would be a very suitable title (think of a nursery rhyme which is about a bridge in London).
And Fergie would be selected as our ambassador and remix this song and promote us to the eye of the world.
Malaysia bolleeehhh~~~

Meet Uncle Hussain - Lagu Untukmu

I feel like rocking!!
Need to release all the andrenaline in me!! I want to go for a gig session!!


Tiada bintang
Dapat menerangkan hati yang telah dicelah
Bagaiku lumpuh tak mampu berdiri
Aku tetap begini
Takkan berubah kerna aku tetap aku
Dan lalu rindumu bukanlah aku

Guna hati, akal dan fikiranmu
Kau dan juga aku
Dua hati yang tak mungkin bersatu

Apakah aku
Hanya boneka yang sering engkau mainkan
Yang dikawal oleh jari-jarimu
Ku punya hati dan perasaan
Pernahkah engkau fikirkan
Cukup cukuplah oh cukuplah

(ulang *)

Tak faham tak tahan
Sabarku tak tertahan
Melayan sikapmu perawan
Kau dan aku berbeza
Kita memang tak serupa
Bebaskan bebaskan
Ku ingin dilepaskan
Kita tidak sehaluan
Cukuplah sudahlah
Sampai di sini saja
Hubungan kita berdua

(ulang *)

A Wedding and A Gathering

What a hectic weekend it was.. Drawings + weddings + trips to KLIA + insufficient sleep + drebar = one tiring me..

But glad things have slowed down for a while. Finally, I managed to finished up the drawings that Kenny wanted. Cheers.. Apologies to him for not able to complete it earlier, and for the mistakes/errors that I made. My designing skills are definitely not up to standard even though have been working for 2 years plus in a consultant firm. :/

Though had lots of things to do all within a short span of time, but the feeling was jsut great. Never felt so alive, especially ever since started working in the new company few months ago. All the work just keep me occupied and alive. Never mind if I had only 3 hours of sleep for the past 2 nights. The feeling of doing something productive jsut keep my andrenaline rushing into my brains.

Hope to get more of this kind of work more often.

Another friend got married. To be exact, two friends got married (to each other). So happy that both of them finally tied the knot. After all, they are one great couple.

Sessions of "food tasting", quizes, singing sessions, professing I-Love-You in ten languages, the golden vows that Juin Mei "force" Chee Sing to sign, and the 60-minutes-course-to-become-a-SUPERHUSBAND, were just hilarious!! ...Poor Chee Sing had to get parents-in-law signatures and had to answer questions before Juin Mei allows Chee Sing to open the door. But nothing can stop Chee Sing though, and upon getting the signatures, he was bestowed with a cert duly signed by his parents-in-law, and of course, he finally get to open the door. Sweet..

To both Chee Sing and Juin Mei, wishing both of you happiness forever till you grow old. :)

Had a great time meeting up with old friends at the wedding dinner. It has been ages since we last met after our graduation. Ann Mei said that this was the only time where old friends reunion can take place. I couldn't agree more. Friends that I have not seen in 4 years plus, old choir members, old taekwondo friends.. Friends came from as far as Johor Bahru, Penang, Kuching and Miri to attend the wedding. Eugene the Horny Conductor, Belinda (my cute lil' sis), Irene the Dancing Queen, Valerie the Petite, Wendy the AngMoh Hokkien Charbor, Kok Wai the Singing Machine, Chee Siong the Contractor.. some of the friends that I have not seen in years.. Glad to see you guys again!!

Went to Luna Bar right after the dinner. The place was awesome!!!!
Cool interior decoration, with a swimming pool right at the front of the place, and with the magnificent view of KL with KL tower at the background. But RM50 for cover charge (inclusive of a drink) is a bit expensive though. Nevertheless, it was my first trip there and I did have a great time there, especially hanging out with some old buddies.. Not forgetting messing around with Jo Eee. Hey dude, you sucks in everything!! Hahahahaa....

Lil' sis and Val came all the way from East Malaysia to attend the wedding. Had to chauffer them around. Bad bad girls!! Sorry for not being able to bunk in together at Jason's house. Or else it would be a great time catching up with stories of what's happening around and what's not. By the way, the rice biscuits that you brought is nice. Shall gobble them up, don't you worry. hehehehe..

With reality sinking in, it's the begining of a new week, and everyone was back to do their own things. Wonder when will we have the chance to hang out like this again.

Beheaded. Confirmed. Extended.

Yeah, my head has been chopped off by Karen. :(

But on the brighter note, PJ has contributed to my winning stats. Cheers. :)

After 3 months in this company, ladies and gentlemen,..
I am now a confirmed staff.


The dateline for tender I am working on has been extended to 31st December. Woo hoo.. Can afford to slack a bit. :)

The Hunter and The Hunted

The Hunter
My third day of playing scrabbles, and I got myself 3 easy prey - Mel, PJ and Wai Hong. These 3 are easy kills. They were slaughtered alive and their head chopped off. These heads are shrunk into peanut size like how the headhunters in Borneo did in the old times.

The Hunted
Karen is hunting me down and I have nowhere to hide. It's not even halfway into the game and I am lagging behind by over 90 points. I can smell the chopping board. Mercy!! Mercy!!

Scrabbles and DVDs

I am hooked to scrabulous in facebook. Nothing feels better than beating your opponent in a game of scrabble. Melissa and Wai Hong were my first two victims. Anyone else care to be on my chopping table? Hehehe..


Gonna ask Michael boy to buy me DVDs for the following movies. Cost only RM4 per DVD in JB. What a bargain!!
1. Amélie
2. Chocolat
3. The Twilight Samurai
4. The Hidden Blade
4. Les Choristé
5. Million Dollar Baby
6. The Cider House Rules
7. Elizabethtown
8. Babel
9. Pride and Prejudice
10. Sepet
11. Gubra
12. Mukhsin

Let's pray hard that those pirates have these movies in their collection.

Offshore Again..

Posted some of the photos that I took while I was working at offshore last few days. Normally, one would require a permit from the OIM (also known as Offshore Installation Manager, the big boss) to take photos while at platform. You see, the platform is a highly hazardous area and a single flash could trigger an explosion in the worst case. Therefore, flame detectors are installed throughout the platform to detect any unwanted sparks. If you are using flash while taking photos, then detectors will detect these flashes as fire and false alarm will be triggered.

But as the whole platform was not in operational due to shutdown for upgrading, I was allowed to take snapshots. No need to go through the hassle of applying permits.

Cakerawala Cluster of Platforms
(left to right : Wellhead platform, CKR platform and CKP - Central Processing Platform)

There are 3 platforms in this cluster, each having its own function. I worked at CKP or the central processing platform whereby all the gas produced from fields will be treated and processed here.

Bridges adjoining CKR and Wellhead platform

For my project, there were 2 accomodation ships for almost 600 plus workers working on board. One is Jascon 28 which I was staying in, and the other was Beta. The condition at Jascon 28 was pretty clean and well maintained. It was able to withstand the sea waves and therefore, not much rocking on board. Thank god for that as I didn't vomit throughout my stay.

Jascon 28 aka J-28. The ship where I stayed.

My bunk. 4 person sharing in a room. Nice, comfy and fully air conditioned

Not much activity at night, other than watching TV at the TV room, or going for a movie at the mini cinema. Other than that, one can also go to the galley for makan. It's open 24 hours and you can eat till you drop!! Internet was available at the office, so lucky me. However, the connection is not very reliable as the signal kept breaking. Nothing much can be done as it uses satellite to transmit data.

View of CKR at night. A pipe-laying ship is at the background

I was informed by a colleague that I could climb up to the flare tip (shown in the photo below). The flare head was not in operational so this was the only chance one could go on top of it. The overall height from the top to the sea level is approximately 30 storeys high. It was said that the whole structure would sway at least one foot apart when you are at the top.

How I wanted to climb to the top!!! But I only gotta know about this half an hour before I was scheduled to depart back. I could not afford to spend 15 minutes to climb to the top and miss my chopper. One had to pay USD500 if he/she misses the chopper. So, I had to forget about trying out the climb. This would have been one hell of an experience but sadly I didn't have the chance to do so. And I doubt if I would have the chance to do again as chances like this (especially when we have a total plant shutdown and no flaring) doesn't come often. Sigh...

Flaretip which is about 15-20 storey high.

Nothing much to see other than water in the 360 degrees view.

Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.

After spending 4 days surrounded by water, it is indeed pleasant to see greenery again. And the best part is that you don't feel giddy spending your time in the rocking ship.

Green green grass of home.

It's already past one day since I reached onshore, but my head is still feeling heavy and giddy. Thought that I would fall sick anytime soon, but my boss told me that this is perfectly normal as my body is trying to adjust itself to the steady condition onshore. You see, the inner ear which functions to balance our body, which has adjusted to the rocky environment on board the ship will now have to readjust itself to the ground condition again. Hence, my body does not feel right. However, this short term giddiness will soon be gone in a few days time.

Though the trip was short, but nothing beats the experience of riding on a helicopter, living in a ship and working in a platform in the middle of the vast ocean. Wouldn't trade the experience with the money in the world. :)

Life On Board

I am now typing this on board of a ship. Its the starting of the monsoon season here at South China Sea, and the wind is getting stronger with each passing day. Heard from the announcement today that the wind speed reached 40 knots per hour. I had to make effort to climb the stairs when the wind blew, and i had to grab onto the handrails as I walk. Another few knots more and it might blew me overboard!

The platform which I am working on is called Cakerawala or CKP and it is situated somewhere along Malaysia-Thailand border in the South China Sea. Work here starts at 7am in the morning and ends about 6 or 7 in the evening. Nothing much for me to do everyday, other than walking around and pretending to be busy. And this is pretty boring in a sense. But nothing beats the experience of being onboard this gas processing platform.

As for accomodation here, I stay on board of a ship by the name of Jascon 28. This vessel is dynamically positioned, and instead of using anchor to hold her afloat, she uses propellers to keep her on the spot. There are currently about 400 plus people on board. Life on board is kinda ok i guess. They have mini cinema here and food is greatly taken care of. 6 meals a day, can you believe that? Breakfast, follows by morning tea break, lunch, afternoon tea break, dinner, and supper. You can choose to have a second supper in the midnight if you want to. These guys really put effort to ensure that you won't die of hunger. Food is nice (but my colleagues who have been here for weeks would beg to differ!) and they had asian and western food. They had variety of drinks to choose from (syrup, packed fruit juice, hot drinks - tea, coffee, milo, etc) and they even offer ice-creams and fruits. Apart from that, they have a small gym room. Other than that. you basically don have much things to do other than admire the 360 degrees of seaview and ships and platforms distance away.

From a rough count, there are about 7 or 8 platforms nearby. And there are barges and vessels which is visibly seen.

Sea is starting to get rough, and its causing me motion sickness every now and then from the boat rocking. Staring at the computer screen while the ship is rocking, is making me pretty dizzy and disorientated. Time to lie down and take a good night sleep.I definitely need a rest especially when I have screwed up big time today. Will write on this embarrassing incident later..

Short Post

1. I am going for a short trip offshore. Finally, I got the chance to ride the chopper and be on the platform for the first time. Weeeee!!! Wil be back on Wednesday or Thursday. Wish me luck guys!!

2. Boss said I might get the chance to go to Lumut for a half year assignment. Couldn't be happier to accept the job. Yipppeee!! Will be looking after the fabrication works of a few process modules for a FPSO project. The fabrication works will be at my sister company's yard. Let's hope my boss will indeed stick to his decision and send me there.

3. Yesterday's choir performance sucks hard time. Never felt so conned in my life. Sorry to the 5 friends of mine who went together. My bad my bad.. :/

Il Mare and Elizabethtown

A story that is emotional provoking and shows love that transcend time. Makes one wonder whether life do really exist in a bi-dimensional world separated by a different timeline. Both the main characters had liven up the storyline and carried their role well as they slowly unfold the tale. Excellent story line and superb scenery. It's simply a beautiful.

This one definitely makes it to one of my favourite movies of all time.

Big thanks to Ho Sang for recommending this to me. :)


Managed to catch only the last 15 minutes of this movie on Astro HBO channel yesterday night. I was hooked to the screen throughout the duration and every moment of the finalé created a strong impact. Can't wait to buy the DVD from shop downstairs of my office.

Finally, the barbarians came to their senses (for a moment) and scrapped their evil plot of mass canine genocide.- The Star, 15th Sept 2007

Let's see what is their next plan that will crop up in their pea-size-brain.

Mass Genocide and ToyoL

In another development concerning the canine genocide which was planned out by the heinous local council of Majlis Perbandaran Selayang, it was reported in the paper today that the head of the state (Menteri Besar Khir Toyol) condemned the barbaric local council after mass protest from the concerning citizens and animal lovers in the country.

Phew, I thought that at least there is indeed a good leader who knows how to differentiate between the good and the bad. At last, someone who indeed stands out to correct the wrong. Someone who shows the capability of a true leader and think before action.

And this was what reported in the paper today.


The state government has ordered the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) to take another look at its controversial dog-catching competition.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo said the reward amount was unreasonable and too high.

"We understand that MPS organised the competition in good faith as it hoped to attract the locals’ attention in solving the stray dogs problem.

"However, the prize money is too high and we want them to take another look at the competition."



What the fuck?

This man, a Menteri Besar himself, didn't speak of banning the competition after mass protest from the public and media, but instead, he came out with a stupid and toyol remark stating that the prize money is too freaking high? Can't he see the bloody issue here is not about the prize money? Its about the ethics and moral of holding such contest and the implication of the contest on the society, and also to the poor dogs, for goodness sake!!!

Well, this perhaps shows that he is one total brainless, heartless, heinous and murderer Menteri Besar we have here in this state. And he dares to proclaim that he is the leader of a developed state. Yeah right, first class infrastructure, bottom class mentality.

Speechless.... .. . .. . . . .

Khir ToyoL, don't be so bloody stupid and toyol can or not? Pleeeeeeze! (copied from here)

Tessellation and Fantasy

Convex and Convaves - 1953

Intriguing. Painting that shows impossible structures, yet captivates the mind and soul. It has been said that there are people who spent hours in the museum multiple times just to enjoy his creation. And it was said that no matter how many times one sees the artwork, one still wont be able to see them all.

That is the work of the famous Maurits Cornelius Escher, or MC Escher. I only knew about his existence when I was watching Il Mare the other day, and I digged further to know more about him.

In his earlier works, he experimented with tessellation (the regular division of the plane, or tiling), which can be shown in the two paintings below. He toyed around with boundlessness with repeated objects and the result was infinite symetrical geometry. His art was mostly flat or 2 dimensional plane at first (see Horsemen), but he progressively ventured into spherical shapes (see Circle Limit IV) while staying to the infinite geometrical concepts.

Notice the repeated black and white horses facing each other in the opposite direction

Escher potraying tessellation in circular pattern in this masterpiece - Circle Limit IV

Later in his life, he started experimenting with transformation, or metamorphing. He practically changes a group of object into another object gradually through a series of slight changes (see below) For the first artwork, his touch of work has basically transformed a fish into a goose. And the second one sees the transformation from bees into fishes (and birds??). Really a brilliant work from the genius himself. It was during this time that he was involved with mathematicians and I believe that these must have influenced part of his designs.

And evolving from the same theme, he created a new theme called "Image Stories". One of his artwork, Encounter, was based on this idea. This piece was completed in 1944.

Encounter - 1944

"... on a gray wall, these human figures increase their mutual contrast toward the center ... each kind detaches themselves from the wall surface and walks into space ... Thus going round they can't help meeting in the foreground ... the black pessimist keeps his finger raised in a gesture of warning, but the white optimist cheerfully comes to his encounter, and so they finally shake hands." - excerpt from here.

Noticed how the black and white figure (element of tessellation) coming out from the rear wall, and going round, each in opposite direction and eventually uniting at the centre.

The later stage of his life sees his fascination with space and infinity . We eventually sees him developing pieces which depict structures in a seemingly impossible time and space. These structures are impossible to be built in real life, and the examples below will explain why it is so.

Belvedere - 1958

Relativity - 1953

Up and Down

It was said that there is element of loneliness which showed in Convex and Concave as the people were not aware of each other's existence even though they are living in the same place.

As for Relativity, I find a similarity between this art and the movie, Il Mare. The people are unaware of each other presense (just like Convex and Concave). I would say Escher is trying to convey the message that these men exist in the real world, but they living in a different time and another dimension, just like the movie. Therefore, the characters are totally unaware of each other's presence. Hmm.. Made me wonder if this are for real, or fantasy.

Fantasy or not, I still say his works are truly genius and brilliant!!

I Feel Screwed!

Thanks to anonymous (Mr Ke**e T*n) for this information.

Don't you feel something is S.E.R.I.O.U.S.L.Y. not right? This I say, is a legal fraud and open corruption. And Auditor-General is not doing anything other than putting up remarks. As usual, no action will be taken against the culprit.

(source : The Star Online - 9th Sept 2007)

Paying through the nose for tools


PETALING JAYA: Would you pay RM224 for a set of four screwdrivers?

Probably not, but that was what the Government paid to supply tools for students at the eight National Youth Skills Institutes (IKBN) around the country, according to the Auditor-General’s (AG) report.

The Star shopped around and found this set of Stanley screwdrivers. They cost RM32.80. For the RM224.94 set.
The AG said the screwdrivers had a market price of RM40 and according to pictures in the report, resembled the average Philips screwdrivers you could buy in any hardware shop.

And it does not stop there – the AG went a step further by examining the prices paid for 12 other tools and equipment bought for the IKBN project, comparing it with market prices when the procurement was done in late 2002.

Among these were technical books consisting 10 titles that had a price tag of RM10,700 and a 3.1 megapixel digital camera that was bought for RM8,254.

For the 13 items that the report highlighted, the Government paid RM8.39mil more than the market price at that time.

According to the report, consultants for the Youth and Sports Ministry had reached an estimated price tag of RM399.67mil for the equipment for the IKBN project which later ballooned to RM767.98mil after two appeals by the ministry for additional allocations.

“The ministry said more money was needed in anticipation of a bigger student population and that getting equipment from the same supplier meant prices would remain the same.

“But there was no proof that market research was done to identify the prices of the items and equipment because minutes for the negotiation meetings were not prepared,” the report said.

It said without the minutes, the auditing team was unable to find out if efforts were made to reduce prices.

The AG also said that the ministry’s secretary-general (KSU) had signed off 11 contracts worth between RM7.99mil and RM74.2mil that were related to the IKBN project, on behalf of the Government.

“The KSU only has the authority to sign contracts worth less than RM5mil. Anything larger should be signed by the minister or someone to whom the authority has been given.

“However, during the audit, no such letter giving the authority to the KSU presented itself,” the report said.

The report said there were also discrepancies such as one supplier being paid more than the other for exactly the same equipment.

One example the AG highlighted showed one supplier getting RM1.24mil more than the other for identical engineering equipment.

First Class Parliament, First Class Mentality

First, they used almost RM90 million to renovate our 45 years old Parliament building. But the contract only included interior renovation and rewiring works. But then, it leaked right after the renovation work was done and the public were then informed that the contract does not include any repair work on the roof top. Our brainy Work Minister further said the leakage was due to the poor roof condition. (source from here).

Fine. So, they said that they have to carry out the roof repair work and the repair cost was estimated to be around RM 13 million (source from here). And our brainy Work Minister further explained on top of his earlier response that the reason the roof leaked was due to :-
1. The building is very old.
2. The existing waterproofing at the roof was in a very poor condition.
3. Massive changes in the weather pattern contributed to the leakage (source from here)

And now ladies and gents, our brainy Work Minister has found out the root cause for all the leakage problem.

The water proofing was sufficient, but it became dirty because of the garbage and all kinds of construction materials like pieces of wood and cement left behind on the roof and this caused the water proofing to be damaged and the roof to leak” (sourced from here and here).

Who in the fucking world would have access to our Parliament rooftop, and what the fuck in the world would he/she want to throw those bloody rubbish there??!??!?!??~?~?~

This is way beyond my comprehension, and I can't seem to understand this. Perhaps you guys can explain this to me.

Then I read in the The Sun newspaper yesterday (7th Sept 2007) that a few brainy Parliament members (of coz, they were none other than Barisan Nasional's) were suggesting to construct a new Parliament building. After all, they said that its time for a change as the current one is already too old. And another smart ass (also from BN) seconded the decision and this smart ass said something to this extent.

"The new building should be a first class building. After all, our Parliament has a first class mentality and a first class Ministers. So, it is imperative that the new Parliament building should be a first class building to reflect the true first class Ministers".

And another brainy guy (suprise suprise, he is also from BN) proposed that the new site should be in Putrajaya, but it was rejected by others (also BN). They explained that the Parliament should be located far away from the administrative area (Putrajaya, in this case) to reflect the separation of power between the law-making-body and the adminstrative.

A new building eh?

W.H.A.T A B.R.I.L.L.I.A.N.T I.D.E.A !!!!

Well, from the highly intellectual level of debates in the Parliament (live telecast of the debate can be found here, here, here, here and here), I think I may have found a very suitable place to suit our Barisan Nasional Parliament member's intellectual level.

Located just beside of MRR2 in between Batu Caves and Kepong, I found this area to be the most suitable place as it is definitely far away from Putrajaya. And this place would be good to reflect our Parliament Minister's "intellectual" level. Yeah, they can do some reclaim work on this land. Its quite an engineering challenge to construct a building on a used sanitary landfill u know? The environmental issue is difficult to tackle (due to the existing leechate) and the soft ground condition. Its pretty challenging feat, and if our Work Minister can succcessfully build one, I am very sure it would enter into the Malaysian Book of Records. And we would be very proud to claim that this is our brand new first class Parliament to the whole world.

Don't you just feel proud to be a Malaysian?

Near Miss? Not This Time.

Just barely less than one week since my last posting on the near-miss incident, my beloved lil' petite Kelisa is now officially scarred.

No one to blame other than myself for not paying attention while reversing into an illegal car-park area when I was at The Curve basement car park. The rear right side door and mudguards has a few lines of scratches about 4 to 5 inches long, no thanks to my driving skill which got my car touching a column/pillar. No amount of car polish would be able to conceal these scratches.

Poor poor me!! :(

Mass Genocide

We have a bunch of brainless barbarians acting in disguise as our local council representatives. And they are planning to wipe out the whole dog population in Selayang area. But they are not committing this canine genocide with their own bare hands. Instead, they shall offer the reward to whoever that can execute this plan and bring the highest number of dogheads to the council.

And this is their masterplan.

Time To Migrate... To A New Blog

Think it would be good for me stop posting all the Malaysia political issues here in this blog. After all, this negative news will just make my blog dark and gloomy. And wouldn't want those bastards to use ISA against me for spreading the truth about Malaysia. Those bastards are capable of doing anything. Don't believe? Well, try reading this. (Right click the link and press "Save As" to your desktop).

As Malaysia will be celebrating its birthday tomorrow, and since the government has been trying very hard to instill sense of patriotism into us (successful or not, that's another story), I decided to heed the call and I shall potray patriotism in my own way. No flag waving like the hypocrites who only show their action once a year. Not going to organize big merdeka celebration like how the corrupted politicians who sucks the national coffer dry for their own hidden agenda. Instead, I am gonna join hands with other people who share similar views as I am, that is to expose the core and heart of the corrupted and idiotic government of Malaysia. I maybe a small kuchimiau who no one knows or even bothers, but I just hope that with what I am doing, I can create awareness to the society (or to the world) to reject the brainless goverment.

As of now, I am just too ashame to say that I am one as there is nothing proud of staying in a country that is heading south/cuckoo. A supposedly beautiful country are now raped and pillaged by the corrupted soul.

Oh well, enough of the so called patriotism speech.

Ladies and gentlemen..

Near Miss

The scene where a small Kancil reversing straight to my car as I was looking for a car park was still fresh on my mind. My car stopped behind this Kancil as I wanted to get into a nearby vacant car park, but the driver was unaware of my presence and took the liberty to reverse straight to the left of my car rear portion. I panicked and pressed the horn but the horn button on my Kelisa was rather small. Could not gave him the warning and to my horror, he drove right to me. I couldn't do anything and I could only see his car appearing closer and closer. My car jerked a little when his rear bumper touched mine.

Oh freak!! Gotta fork money to repair my car this time!!

Got down my car and checked the damage. Thank god that there was not a scratch or dent on my car!! Phew!! The driver got down and checked out his car, and then came to me.

Since both our car were not damaged in any way, so we considered our case closed.

But I was still shaking from the near miss incident. Things could go pretty ugly if he had reversed his car at a speed like a Formula One driver. What ever it is, I don't want my trusty lil' Kelisa to get into any accident at all. It has been almost one and half year since I last bought this car from a second hand dealer in Jalan Kuching.

It has served me well and I am satisfied with it. Never mind if it is a small car, as long as it can get me from point A to point B safely and reliably, I am satisfied. It may not be fast and does not has a sporty look, but I am glad it is economical and fuel efficient. Low car insurance, road tax, and consumes less fuel comparatively to other cars on the road. It has no fancy CD player or hi-fi car stereo, but a cassette/radio player is what has accompanied me throughout the time stucked in traffic jam or on a long journey outstation. This tiny car may get bullied occasionally on the road, but I am fine with it cause I will have the last laugh when it comes to hard-to-find-parking-spaces or in a narrow road.

Yeah, a wise decision to get myself this car. But need to be extra careful as this car has to brave itself against the big bad world out there. Have to defend it against the nincompoop Malaysia drivers who thinks that the road is a Formula One track!! Must protect it at all cost.

Happy happy Datuk Z

1. He built his own mansion (very huge mansion) smack in the middle of a kampung area without the local council's approval. And he was one of the municipal council.

(His lovely mansion - built without approval)

2. He demolished a satay stall for being a competitor to his own satay stall (DZ restoran) which was located just right opposite the road. And he used the excuse that the opposite stall was illegally built without any prior approval from the local council. It was later found out that his own stall was also illegally build on the government land. His stall was demolished, but no fine was imposed on him.

3. He was summoned by the Sultan to clarify the two issues above, but he excused himself and told that he was ill. He was caught vacationing with his family on an island the next day. Sultan got mad at this and summoned him again the following day, but no stern action was taken on him.

4. He had hidden the fact that he was a undischarged bankruptcy when held the Senator post, which was unlawful under the law. He got off scot-free.

5. He was a director of a few companies which has committed various offences under the Companies Act 1965 such as failing to submit annual financial report and Profit and Loss Statement, failing to conduct annual meeting, etc. 37 charges were levied to him by the Companies Commission earlier this year, but today's paper reported that all the charges were dropped. Companies Commission's prosecutor Azmil Haron told magistrate Fadzilatul Isma Ahmad Refngah that he had been instructed to withdraw the charges against the two companies and its directors. The defence lawyers said that the charges were withdrawn because "outstanding problems had been settled".

Datuk Zakaria Mohd Derus smiling away happily as he knows that Malaysia practises and fully embrace abuse of power, corruption and a dysfuntional legal system.

Aren't you proud to be a Malaysian?

Namewee issue - Hwa Beng: “let the matter rest and time to move ahead”


“To drag on the Wee Meng Chee aka Namewee rendition of Negaraku serves no purpose as it would only send a wrong message to Malaysians especially youths by giving the impression that Malaysia does not practise freedom of speech.”

This was the message delivered by YB Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng, MCA Central Committee member and state Assemblyman for Subang Jaya. He made these remarks after concluding a seminar with members of MCA Club Overseas from Australia, United Kingdom, Japan and Ukraine.

“The boy is naïve, and he is genuinely sorry as indicated by his apology through YB Dato’ Chua Soi Lek, a full Cabinet Minister and MCA Vice President. He realizes his mistake,” explained Hwa Beng.

Hwa Beng who is also MCA International Bureau Chairman added that “if you prosecute him in absentia, there is no meaning served as Namewee may choose not to return to Malaysia.”

Meanwhile, in view of the ongoing elections at UMNO division levels, Hwa Beng suggested that “for UMNO leaders who insist on prosecuting Namewee, they are using this issue to score political mileage. If you noticed, all these criticisms charged against Namewee coincide during and at the opening of the UMNO division level meetings. Some want to be heroes.” Hwa Beng then urged our UMNO counterparts to refrain from playing up to the gallery “because if UMNO keeps hammering Namewee, more Malaysians will grow to detest UMNO, and later on Barisan Nasional as a whole. In the end, all of us will suffer. Hence, it is better to let this issue rest and move ahead.”

Meanwhile Hwa Beng also highlighted that there are UMNO leaders who are magnanimous in accepting Namewee’s apology, for instance the Minister of Information YB Dato’ Seri Zainuddin Maidin who said that society must accept his apology by forgiving him. "He should not be punished but instead be guided and educated to enable him to understand the basics and to distinguish between political and national issues." Another UMNO leader who displayed magnanimity is a Perak EXCO councilor.

Hwa Beng’s advice comes as very important food for thought for parties who are insistent on prosecuting Namewee. To harp on an issue although the youngster has already issued a public apology through a Cabinet Minister while ignoring other more serious national issues like combating rising crime rates, upholding the original intentions of the Federal Constitution or weeding out graft in the private and public sector, or striving towards a more representative civil service ultimately will not benefit our beloved country on the whole.

- MCA Online -

Kudos to our MCA for helping out poor Namawee and their parents in handling this sensitive issue. Apology has been conveyed through MCA's effort in talking senses to both the parent and Namawee. Guess MCA is like a Superman to the rescue eh?

Not quite. Issue should be closed after the public apology has been published in both the paper and Namawee's blog, but it turned out to be otherwise.


4 days later...





22/08: MCA bersetuju Meng Chee dihukum

Posted by: Raja Petra

MCA bersetuju dengan gesaan pelbagai pihak supaya tindakan undang-undang dikenakan terhadap Wee Meng Chee kerana mencipta klip video menghina lagu Negaraku dengan menggunakan bahasa kasar dan lucah.

Naib Presiden parti itu, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek berkata, persetujuan itu selaras dengan prinsip parti berkenaan bahawa perkataan lucah dan yang menyentuh sensitiviti kaum dan agama tidak boleh digunakan semata-mata atas nama kebebasan.

``Kita berharap kerajaan mengambil tindakan tegas kepada sesiapa yang melanggar prinsip ini dan kita serahkan kepada kebijaksanaan Peguam Negara untuk menyiasat dengan lebih terperinci mengenai apa tindakan yang seharusnya dikenakan,'' katanya.

Beliau yang juga Menteri Kesihatan berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas mewakili Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak merasmikan Kongres Patologi dan Makmal Perubatan Sedunia Ke-24 di sini.

Sebelum ini, akhbar-akhbar melaporkan Meng Chee meminta maaf kepada kerajaan dan rakyat Malaysia yang tersinggung dengan penyiaran lagu yang diberi tajuk `Negarakuku’ itu.

Meng Chee juga dilaporkan telah mencipta sebuah lagi lagu bertajuk Kawanku/My Friends yang terang-terangan menghina kaum Melayu.

Susulan itu, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi menegaskan proses undang-undang terhadap Meng Chee, 24, pelajar tahun akhir jurusan Komunikasi Awam sebuah universiti di Taiwan akan diteruskan walaupun dia sudah meminta maaf secara terbuka.

Dalam pada itu, Soi Lek berkata, beberapa kenyataan pemimpin MCA sebelum ini supaya kes itu diselesaikan setelah Meng Chee meminta maaf tidak harus disalah tafsir bahawa parti itu mempertahankan orang yang menggunakan perkataan lucah serta memperalatkan agama dan kaum.

``Ini tidak benar kerana kita menghormati prinsip saling hormat menghormati dalam sebuah negara majmuk dan kita bersetuju tindakan diambil bukan sahaja terhadap Meng Chee malah kepada sesiapa yang melanggar undang-undang dan menggugat keharmonian antara kaum,'' tegasnya.

Beliau menjelaskan, pihaknya mahu isu itu diselesaikan segera kerana bimbang ia diperalatkan oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab termasuk parti pembangkang demi kepentingan politik mereka.

All i see is no Superman, but a chihuahua who knows how to backstab people and kow tow to no-brainer-nincompoop-rottweilers.

Oh well, as long as we have such doggies all over the place, we should be proud being Malaysian, shouldn't we?

Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) Fiasco.

That was what The Sun newspaper has been reporting for the past few weeks. This was one project that can catapult our Port Klang to be on par with the best in the world. But sadly, after years of planning and resources dumped into it, it is now on the verge of collapsing.

Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional!!  

A prominent Dubai investor (Jafza) has pulled out of the project leaving the Malaysian counterpart in doldrum. Some of the reasons cited by Chuck Heath, the Senior VP of Jafza were:-

1) "political interference, bureaucracy and breaches of the management agreement signed between Jafza and the Port Klang Authority (PKA)."

"total lack of government planning ... which has seen the most fundamental issues being considered and resolved only after the event rather than before".

3) transparency was non-existent and the "Malaysian political and economic landscape has too many vested interests seeking involvement and control in this project"

But i love the way Chuck Heath put the third statement. He is indirectly implying that there are definitely people who wanted to take part in the satu-lagi-projek-Barisan-Nasional project.

Now, now, now. Notice anything fishy there? One could have easily guessed that there are some people who wanted to be hanky panky here!!

Now, the sole Malaysian company is on the nearing bancruptcy, and guess who is coming to rescue??

Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional!!  

Yup, our government is going to bail out the company, forking out almost RM4 billion to do so. They said that they have no choice but to help worr... And they are "forced" to do so worr....(Read it here)


That's RM 4 B.I.L.L.I.O.N we are talking about!! That is with a capital B!!!

To give you a clue on how much is this RM 4B, lets take a look at some figure:-


TahunKutipan Individu (RM juta)Kutipan Syarikat (RM juta)JUMLAH

























This table shows the total tax revenue collected by the Internal Revenue Board from 2001 to 2006. -sourced from here. RM4B is more than 10% of our total tax collection. Which means, 10% of the tax you guys are paying are going into someone's wallet.

2) Total construction cost for SMART tunnel is almost RM 2B. That means, we could have build two SMART tunnel with this total amount of money.

3) RM 4.4B is the amount committed by the government to improve our public transport after removing partially the fuel subsidy earlier this year. But guess our public transport will never be revamped cause our numbskull ministers decided to use the money to bail a failed company out of bancruptcy.

All i see is that the money will not help the company nor the project. In fact, I am very sure that the money will be used to make one's (or many) piggy bank(s) burst with money.

Now, is this a fiasco? No, I don't think so. Fiesta sounds more convincing.

Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) Fiesta!!
(satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional)

More fishy stuff.
