Smack your forehead when you found yourself being the caused of a problem that you didn't know was your fault. I was that blur. Maybe I was lost in the web of the whole philosophy of love. Could love be as simple as faith is? In the form of child like faith. Back to basics, that is the key word for me. I have lost myself in this whole episode of pursuing the complexity of love. It is definitely not that complex. It is definitely not philosophy. Love is...

Bumiputra: Losing their rights? has always been almost of a daily read for me. This time around, I think he has precisely forecasted a devastation that will destroy our country if nothing concretely good is done and because of what has been done and is being done is continued. He went on to mention this:

"It is a perilous game to play if Malaysia is bent on alienating even the bumiputra by over protecting the Umnoputra sub-strata, and at the same time turning its back on two of its biggest trading partners, namely the US and the EU, which have called for the removal of such intra-and-ultra discriminatory policies."

And then to this:

"The crux of the matter is, there is a fundamental difference between adjusting an archaic economic policy and safeguarding sovereignty in an ever changing global economy environment. Ignore it at your own peril as ASEAN's Vietnam and Indonesia -- who generate similar product clusters as Malaysia's with improving quality at relatively lower cost -- may one day eat your lunch."

Love as CS Lewis sees

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from the perturbations of love is Hell.

CS Lewis

Who ever you are, you have very accurately described love as CS Lewis would have. Thank you. It takes lots of courage to love. Hope is another influential element in love.

Danger lurks

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Please forward it to anyone who cares enough to make a difference!

Dear fellow bloggers,

I am asking for a favour from all of you 'big' bloggers, to get the
word out about the hazards of the swiftlets that are flying around.
The bird droppings, the increase in the numbers of flies, and the
potential H5N1 influenza, commonly known as 'bird flu'.

I know that there are a lot of shop-lots which are converted in
'swiftlet hotels', and lots more are being built, in areas where
people walk, eat, and even sleep.

How come there is no enforcement of the local by-laws prohibiting the
building of such commercial ventures in residential areas??? And even
if they are built in commercial areas, they are still too close to
where people are living. If this state of affairs continues ad
infinitum, bird flu is bound to rip through our towns with a speed
which will leave the authorities helpless.

Please let anyone know who has the ear of someone influential, because
that is the only way things work here and we could get some light
thrown on this very serious issue.

I am doing this to protect my family. I am not instigating trouble
but my husband and I will fight to protect ourselves and our children.
It is simply too dangerous to let this issue go unnoticed.

Just Me,

Anyone willing to help? Maybe Lim Kit Siang/Jeff Ooi/Teressa Kok?


Sadness contradicts with happiness. So is my life right now. It seems like a contradiction. A contradiction of two very distant worlds. The world of dreams and reality. Today, they clashed!
The outcome I've yet to experience in full but even the faintest of it is troubling. I shall still long as the hope is alive. I am sad because of love yet I am happy because there is honesty in this love. Which shall I love more?

The Distance

Distance can make a heart miserable.
A miserable heart worries the mind.
A worried mind manifest uncertainties.
Uncertainties births indecisiveness.
Indecisiveness leads to regrets.
Regrets demolishes hope.
Hopelessness is only but an excuse.
A lame excuse not to love even more...

Yes, undoubtedly the distance plays a great role but it is not a good enough excuse to give up on loving one more and more...=)

2057: Malaysian Independence?

When the office is quite and almost empty and while some are busy sleeping, I am typing this to revive my blog or rather to kick off my boredom. As I am typing this, the office assistant's pathetic computer speakers are blaring away Whitney Houston's I'll Always Love You to my annoyance. Looking out through the window of the conference room, what appears to be the PJ skyline has now turned all dark grey. Just yesterday, as it is with other days that have passed the rain has been too heavy. I do not like it when it rains. Particularly, heavy rain. If you hear of constant floods in Bangladesh when it rains exceptionally heavy, now turn on the tv and you will hear not Bangladesh but Malaysia. I am talking about KL city, PJ "city"(rubbish) and JB city (another rubbish).

Very very soon, if nothing is done to mitigate this stupid third world "phenomenon", Malaysia will never reach its intended 2020 or 2057 (thats freaking long time) goals. We need amphibious vehicles. Maybe by then we would not need Proton or maybe Proton can acquire another company. This time, a sampan manufacturer in Kelantan? Sigh, what ever happened to the Malayia Boleh spirit. Which in my humble opinion is a good motto to encourage us as Malaysians to do better but sadly, it has been raped. Well, the judiciary system will not help either as it is not capable of handling high profile cases like these (what ever happened to the Altantunya case has been all misleading, the truth needs to surface and someone needs to be spank real hard).

So, the Malaysia Boleh spirit is still living but the dark side has tempted it over and entrapped it in hell's deepest pit, the bottomless pit. *That's a big contradiction*. Just like our government and some of its "subjects". We have only two choices which are, join them or leave them. I say go start your own political party and fight for an autonomous region.

Malaya gained its independence in the year 1957...but Malaysia technically have not gained its independence since it was formed in 1963(isit). The only thing that has happened which was close to any independence was Singapore's. So we need it...

Tragic Demise

Val, although we have only met a few times over the years, you have been really a source of laughter. Over mamak sessions where I find your antics amusing and your pressence felt, you will be missed. I hope you are in a better place.

Seksyen 13 - Perbuatan atau perkataan murtad.
Seseorang Islam yang dengan sengaja, sama ada dengan perbuatan atau perkataan atau dengan cara apa jua pun, mengaku hendak keluar daripada Agama Islam atau mengisytiharkan dirinya sebagai orang yang bukan Islam adalah melakukan suatu kesalahan mempersendakan Agama Islam dan hendaklah, apabila disabitkan, dikenakan hukuman denda tidak melebihi tiga ribu ringgit atau penjara selama tempoh tidak melebihi dua tahun atau kedua-duanya."

So, what utter rubbish is this? Does this mean a person who has paid the fine and served a jail sentence can freely go profess and practice another religion of his or her choice? Or is the person going to be repeatedly "punished" for an act of free will?

This is only an example from Perak, the other states have quite similar Syariah laws except for Negeri Sembilan where one is allowed to convert. I suggest all those who want to renounce Islam to go there.

Read on...another thought..

"[Had your Lord willed, all the people on earth would have believed. So can you (Prophet) compel people to believe?] (Yunus 10: 99)." commented by Hantu Gigi Jarang (more like Jalang) (

Hello?? can you hear me? SO can you? If you can, why must there be a prohibition to reject renunciation?

bakaq-a.k.a penarik beca had to use the analogy of joining the military to associate people entering and embracing Islam...a hint of terrorism, maybe?

Anyhow, if any Muslim should respond to this post with anger, disgust and frustration plus a whole lot of disappointment, this is how the world feels about the 2-1 decision. Who on earth put 2 Muslim and one non Muslim judge to decide on such issues? Real bias...flawed decision for the insecure religion.
