The War on Perception: To Win or Lose It!

perception

Perception is the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment. All perception involves signals in the nervous system, which in turn result from physical or chemical stimulation of the sense organs. For example, vision involves light striking the retina of the eye, smell is mediated by odour molecules, and hearing involves pressure waves. Perception is not the passive receipt of these signals, but is shaped by learning, memory, expectation, and attention (Source: Wikipedia)

(Interesting and well made advertisements on how not to judge someone / something too quickly. However not all can be subjected to these kind of presumptions – some politicians are dumb to the core)

Last week have been an interesting week…

Children: Letting Them Go

children

(There will be time when parents will need to allow their children to stand on their own and make decisions that will determine their own future)

I had 2 phone calls from my dad yesterday…

One call was during lunch time informing me that he had cooked something at home and asked whether I had time to drop by the house for lunch. Given the traffic situation, it was an impossible mission to achieve.

Another was late at night when I was still in the office, asking me to drop by his workplace to pick up something. My dad, these days, works as a night shift security guard to pass his free time (he got so bored sitting in the house) and earn some cash (a far cry from those days when he was young and was driving a 10 tires truck)

A Lesson on Morality

What is the right thing to do?

When I was in my 3rd year of law school, we had a section in jurisprudence where we “argued” on the difference between “do you do the right things?”… [Click to read the rest] “A Lesson on Morality”

Bar Council Forum: The Aftermath

(It does not only happen in Malaysia. Here’s one in England. Image source: http://www.actioninengland.gb.com)

The aftermath…

As we know it by now, there was a “loud” protest and the Bar Council decided to call it off (on the advice of the police). But why protest in the first place? Look again on the Bar Council’s objectives for having the forum:-

In a press statement issued yesterday, the council said the objective of the forum was to highlight the plight of families caught in legal disputes resulting from conflicts in the civil and syariah legal systems

Isn’t that a valid objective?… [Click to read the rest] “Bar Council Forum: The Aftermath”

Slamming the phone

(Angry callers. Image source: http://www.whatsgottago.com)

I just hate this…

Someone calls and from the other end is not happy with my actions or decisions and just when I am trying to explain on why I took the said actions or  decisions, they slam down the phone. Very unprofessional!

3 Things That MIC Really Needs To Do

MIC

Just to be fair…

I chatted with a friend last night and we talked about my post on Manya Blogger Award. He asked whether there have been proposals for MIC to rectify their mistakes. Although I am not in favour of racial based political party (Pakatan Rakyat makes more sense), it is only fair to tell someone of their mistakes and ways to rectify before we can “whack” them.

LKS – Nuri too dangerous now?

(The workhorse of the RMAF for a very long time now. Image source: http://alo3drv.blogspot.com/2010/04/projek-nuri.html)

I may not be in the Air Force or flown in one (I have sat in the pilot’s seat once) but I have read enough into military equipment to say that LKS is shooting at the wrong target (read also Kuda Ranggi who is sharing LKS’s angle).… [Click to read the rest] “LKS – Nuri too dangerous now?”

Indian Cinema 101: Those Tamil Movies That I Really Hate!

tamil movies

Tamil movies – there are some that truly get on my nerve. Don’t get me wrong – the acting is a first-class like how Sivaji Ganesan acted in Vietnam Veedu.

Couple days ago, Astro showed one old movie starring Sivaji Ganesan and whilst I admit that he is a great actor, the movie itself was a big pain in the neck (there are many similar Tamil movies sharing the similar storyline).
