A couple of weeks ago, the Government announced a 4 phased recovery plan which immediately was heavily criticised by many sectors of the public, businesses and ex-Ministers like Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz as inadequate and lacking a proper strategy in other areas of the economy and national development.

It was “bang” leaving 2015 – we all watched the new Star Wars movie and we all loved it from the start to the end.
But ever since the start of a “new” year, hardly been a time when I was not in an “angry” mode. Don’t get me wrong – I am not angry with anyone in particular but now schools have started and parents rushing to send their kids to school and then rush to work, way too many idiots have sprout out and had made things worse.
Let’s talk about prepping which is another key aspect of this blog (the other is how Malaysians drive on the road and of course politics) and on the recent disaster in Chennai, India. Image source: www.newindianexpress.com

(I spent more than 5 months in West Africa – culturally it is very challenging but interesting. In the same manner, foreigners in Malaysia need to adapt to the local culture and respect the law too. When that does not happen, we have a problem. A member of a scam syndicate caught operating in the country – image source: The Coverage)
I don’t support racial profiling and negative profiling on any race is even worse but after recent “close” encounters with some of the Africans in Puchong over the weekend, I think it is high time that the growing number of “students” from African & Middle East countries need to be closely monitored.
Are they really genuine students or they are public menace (or criminals like here and here) in disguise?

Let me narrate you a story…
You are at a special function. You have been sitting there for hours, listening to some boring speech and over-killed cultural show at the front. You realised that you are hungry and looked at your watch. You realised that there is only couple of minutes to go before lunch.
You tell yourself that you can hold on for couple of minutes more. You scan around and realised that you are nearer to the buffet table and therefore stands better chance to be one of the first in the line for the food.
“Ladies and gentlemen, lunch is now served, please enjoy yourselves” a loud announcement was made
You rush to the buffet table but not at the speed of someone is too desperate for food – you want to keep it cool.
Just to be on the safe side, you even managed to chat with someone “on the way” to the buffet table. By the time you reached the buffet table and take your plate, there is already couple of people standing in front of you, digging into the delicious buffet spread. Looking at all the food on the buffet table makes you even hungrier but you able to maintain your composure.
You are inching to grab the food quickly and then go to a quiet corner when you realised the buffet line is not moving. You asked yourself “what is going on here?”
I have a fair deal of flying especially in the last 3 years and I have come across many types of characters in the flight. Some are good, some are so-so ok to fly and some simply to say not deserve to be flying at all. There are some things that I really hate to see in my flight.

This was something I stumbled on the net was at the AskMen.com – the website dedicated to men when I came across this article by the one and only Mr Mafioso. It was titled “12 Ways Men Became Sissies & Whiners”. In this article, M says that women want a man who will act like a man, who will take charge, who can make decisions, who doesn’t cry, and who faces fear.
