Some Crazy Indians

(Motorcyclists dicing with death? Picture taken by my sister when she first visited India in 2005)

No offence intended but don’t you guys ever thought of wearing a safety helmet when you are riding a bike?

I was watching the news over Astro couple days ago when the issue of fatality involving motorcyclist in India was raised.… [Click to read the rest] “Some Crazy Indians”

My son had a slight bump on his head last week.

He must have been playing with his kiddy chair when he fell down. My wife was busy in the kitchen and when she heard the cry, she rushed to him. There was a little bump at the back of the head and after applying some ice, the swelling went down and my son was back playing with his toys.… [Click to read the rest] “Power-less”

“Do I look stupid?” – Part 2

(Picture source:

My earlier encounter is here

My Gmail inbox always get emails from people who purportedly have come across or in custody a large sum of money which they need assistance to bring out from the country. The other type is the email informing you that you have just won a big sum in a lottery.… [Click to read the rest] ““Do I look stupid?” – Part 2”

Year 2012

(This may happen in 2012 too – picture source:

If you are a Hindu or a Mayan, this should be good news…

According to an article by David Hedges titled “Golden Age in 2012”, the golden age is expected to start on 22nd December 2012. He said in his article:-

In the Brahma-Vaivarta Purana, Lord Krishna tells Ganga Devi that there will be a Golden Age within the Kali-yuga that will start 5,000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga.

Blogging 101: Blogging and Responsibility

responsibility governance blogging

(This picture, although may offend some, is running through my mind when words like “government”, “responsibility”, “legal suit” and “law” hit the front pages. Picture source: Pinterest)

Now isn’t this looks funny and downright ridiculous?

By now, the government and the mainstream media seem to be high in painting all bloggers as the “real menace” to society. So much that, my colleague at the office was quick to point out the “threat” by Pak Lah in the newspapers and asked me whether I am going to continue blogging.

Cheap Publicity

(One good way to get cheap publicity – try walking around with this costume. Picture source:

This seems to be the “game of the day” these days…

Cheap = of poor quality; inferior

Publicity = the act, process, or occupation of disseminating information to gain public interest

Anantha and Uthaya had an interesting topic over their show at THR Raaga yesterday morning titled “Cheap Publicity”.… [Click to read the rest] “Cheap Publicity”

The thing about American Idol

Ya, I watched it on Astro last night.

But I have a confession to make – I am not a big “idol” of American Idol or local version, Malaysian Idol. I never watched the finals or spend sleepless nights wondering who get picked up for the next round. It is simply a waste of time – because whoever in the finals, are those who can really sing.… [Click to read the rest] “The thing about American Idol”

Book Review 101: Louis Fischer’s Engaging Read – The Life of Mahatma Gandhi

(Mahatma Gandhi – One short heavy stuff but don’t mind me, I am just having a fever – I can, in fact, write weird stuff. Image source: Wikipedia)

Gandhi – I recall “meeting” him for the first time in my grandpa’s house back in the 70s. He was up on the wall with a golden frame. My grandpa must have had the greatest respect for this old man with frame spectacles. At my age then, I use to think that the old man in the photo was my great, great grandfather.

I am having one heck of fever right now and it gets worse when one is sitting in an office where the air-conditioner is opened at the maximum. Luckily I had the day off yesterday and managed to catch up on some rest. But sitting under the air-conditioner today, the so-called yesterday’s rest hardly made any positive impact.… [Click to read the rest] “Fever!”

The Self Stirring Mug

(Warning – uploading will take a longer time if you are on dial up)

It’s 7.00 in the morning.

You go to the office pantry to make a good cup of coffee and once you have added the sugar, you have a hard time stirring up the cup to mix the coffee and the sugar well.… [Click to read the rest] “The Self Stirring Mug”
