It is interesting on how sometimes we missed looking at Malaysia until someone from outside talks about it. The same was when you see parts of Malaysia shown in some Bollywood song scene and then you realise that the places that you watched is the same place you pass by everyday to work.
If you had missed it last week, Malaysia Basketball Association (MABA) got themselves in trouble when “they” displayed the wrong Malaysian flag on during basketball competition. I say they because MABA blamed their IT consultant. Image source: https://mothership.sg
Seriously one cannot comprehend how one can make such a basic mistake when it comes to the national flag?
Sometimes I wish that they build a smartphone app that will cause it not to work when one is walking or driving or having a meal with friends or when waiting for the lift – the smartphone distraction can be lethal! Image source: www.saent.com
I am seriously hooked up with Aao Na from the Hindi movie Kyun! Ho Gaya Na (2004) – I heard the movie bombed in the box office but the soundtrack is classic especially for me, this one particular song. In fact it is running on a non-stop loop on my Hindi playlist even as I am drafting this post. Image source: www.bollywoodhungama.com
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.

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.
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.
