Blogging 101: Which is Better – Frequent Short Post or Infrequent Long Post?

post

Ever since I moved to my own site, I have been trying to be “more consistent” with my post of contents. Image source: elitecopywriter.com

In a way, it is a good thing because I am forced to be on my toe to look out for contents for the blog – fortunately there is no lack of source for the content, from current news, photos, my dreams and travels.

Kaithi: Probably the Best Tamil Movie of 2019

kaithi

(Kaithi is one of the best Tamil action movies for 2019 with a very solid storyline, background music and acting. Image source: IMDB)

It is not often I am ready to spent money to watch Tamil movies in cinema and it is for obvious reasons – loose & illogical story line, some of dumbest heroines and out of place song sequences. It is very rare to see a really good Tamil movie these days.

Some of the Tamil movies that I have tolerated and paid to watch it in the local cinemas remain rare and few – Bahubali: The Conclusion (this is because we were dying to know why Kattappa back stabbed Bahubali) and Petta (this is because it was directed by the brilliant Karthik Subbaraj) was good to watch.

Bailout of RM10.3 Billion: Where is Your Dignity Now? 5 (1)

bailout

Whenever the Government announces huge bailouts, 2 things are certain on everyone’s mind:-

ONE: It does not matter if it is cash, guarantee or promises on paper, one way or another, at the end of the day, taxpayers will be forced to bear the cost of the bailout. Taxpayers money that could have been used more productively for development of the country now goes down the drain.

TWO: Not all of the board of directors, management and senior officers who mismanaged the company will be arrested, stripped naked of their assets and sent to jail for years. At the most, some of them may be asked to tender their resignation without any punishment and some of them will be transferred to another GLC. And since there is no severe punishment given, the incompetence and mismanagement continues.

Cashless Touch ‘n’ Go – Outdated and Must Go?

touch n go

Do you still remember the time before Touch ‘n’ Go was widely used for public transportation, parking and highway tolls? Image source: Compare Hero.my

I still remember the days when I had to queue up at the bus companies counters to get my bus passes –sometimes more than one, depending on the year. KL, Klang & Port Klang Omnibus and SJ Kenderaan had their own dedicated counter for the bus passes – different colours for adults and school children (which is half of the price of the adult total fares). Toong Foong one was a bit different – you have get it from their office which was located near Puduraya where it is usually packed with bus conductors also queuing up to get their stacks of new bus tickets.

Cape Verde to KL: Arrested By Immigration & Other Screw ups!

KL

The flight from KL to Cape Verde was eventful with the scariest part – the pilot reporting that the plane has an engine problem and the plane making 180 degree back to Lisbon. Image: Wrap done on luggage

After 2 months in Cape Verde and gotten busy with work, we soon forgotten about this and we were looking forward very much on the trip back home, back to tanahair, back to family and back to all that glorious Malaysian food.

Delicious Food in Cape Verde – Part 5 (Western)

Read these first:-

This will be the last in the Cape Verde food series (next Cape Verde post will be on return to KL which was also eventful and first time held by Immigration – stay tuned)

When we are in Malaysia, we eat rice most of the time for lunch and dinner. Noodles are usually reserved for breakfast – from fried noodles, wanton noodles, curry noodles and fish ball noodles.

In Cape Verde, there was no noodles in the food menu but they had the closest thing to noodles which was spaghetti.

Why We Still Rolling Out the Red Carpet to These Terrorists?

terrorist

In a galaxy far, far away, these rebels including the beautiful Princess Leia would have been tagged as terrorists in the eyes of the Empire. I am sure many would protest. So what defines someone as a terrorist? Someone who been brainwashed with twisted interpretation of religion and race and kills innocent people? Or is it someone who has taken up an armed resistance to a rogue occupation or an evil dictator? Image source: Starwars.com.

To Improve the Malaysian Economy: Stop Pissing Others Off

malaysia

The problem with we Malaysian as I have seen over the years irrespective the country is under Barisan or Pakatan ruling is that we all practice double standards. Image source: Reddit

For example, we want other countries to send back the wanted Malaysian 1MDB fugitive known as Jho Low to face the prosecutions in Malaysian courts but we keep an Indian fugitive from deportation to face the prosecutions in Indian courts. We say the world can expect a fair trial in Malaysia (we even guarantee it) but we are quick to cast doubts and condemn other country’s justice system.
