A dummies’ guide on how to behave like a Malaysian Politician in time of crisis

(The man in “thick of the action” – Deputy Internal Security Minister: “Semuanya OK?”. Does this sound familiar? Picture source: www.rmp.gov.my)

Whenever I read the newspaper or watch the news over TV these days, some of the actions (or rather reactions) of our politicians especially those who call themselves Ministers & Deputy Ministers, looks all too familiar.

Imagine how our world will be if…

(Remember John Lennon and his famous song “Imagine”? He sang “Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try…Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do…Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can…” – Picture source: www.lennonthemusical.com)

Imagination can be a powerful mental exercise. If we imagine positive things, it can soothe the mind and feelings.… [Click to read the rest] “Imagine how our world will be if…”

The day I ignored my own judgement!

(Imagine seeing this the whole time when driving and was not wise enough to pull over and fill it up. That is being foolish indeed. Picture source: http://web.csp.edu)

These days I fill my car tank full…I am not sure why. Perhaps it was due to the increase in the price of petrol or it was the convenience of filling it once (rather than several times).

Del.icio.us is indeed delicious!

Ever since I started on blogging, 2 things kept me interested to continue to blog: –
1. coming with the content for a blog (it’s a good mental exercise) and
2. Able to learn new things (when it comes to tweaking my blogspot, my hands are just too itchy to keep still)

Now, with my blog growing in the last 6 months, I am finding some difficulty to search through past blog entries.

Taiping Trips 101: Black Panther! Courting Danger with One in Taiping!


(Back in Taiping Zoo, I can be standing next to a big “hungry-looking” panther – so close that I could easily put my fingers in and touch the animal. I did not try my luck. The good thing was the panthers were behind a cage and the cats have just been fed, phew! Image Source: Wikipedia)

I had been planning to take my son to the zoo for some time now.

He is now able to recognise the different types of animals from the TV shows (such as the Big Bird in Sesame Street) and we thought it would be good if he could see the animals in real (as long as he does not ask about Big Bird). The opportunity was there when we travelled back to Taiping for the holidays. We planned to take him to the Taiping Zoo – it will be my 2nd trip to the zoo.

A very short note on the trip to Taiping

I realize now that it was indeed a smart thing to do when I opted to work during the Deeparaya week and take my leave later. My friends who came back from their hometowns, just after their holidays, were talking about the heavy traffic jam and how tired they were driving through the crawl.

It was a lazy afternoon, a couple of days ago when we decided to head out to see a movie. I am not a big fan of Tamil Movies but being curious, we decided to see “Sivakasi” starring Vijay (heard a lot of this movie from my cousins).… [Click to read the rest] “Tamil Movie Review: Sivakasi 2005, Funny And Engaging Movie”
