National Security 2020: ISIS Terrorists – Why Indonesia Can Do It, We Can’t?

ISIS

Seriously, the Pakatan Harapan government needs to go to a corner and reflect on its decision when it comes to bringing former ISIS terrorists and their radicalised families back to Malaysia. Why we are rolling out the red carpet to these terrorists? Infographic source: ISIS

All About Good Parenting Part 2

Read first All About Good Parenting Part 1 here

For the past few days, if you had not noticed, the weather had not been that good – the day had been rather hazy and the nights has been warm and very sweaty. Can you imagine – I was sweating profusely eventhough I was pouring buckets of cold water onto myself. It was that bad. And as if that was not enough, I caught cold and started to cough and it got worse day by day.

One day I woke up, feeling like someone was sitting on my chest and I could not breathe properly. The chest felt heavy and I did not have a good appetite in the morning as well. I went to see the doctor and after registration, I was waiting for the nurse to call me in to see the doctor.

Event Recalled 2016: When the Car Monkeyed Around In the Year of the Monkey

(One good way to damage the sidewalls but modern tires is designed to absorb such sudden shocks. Image source: https://carfromjapan.com/)

Last month – on the month of the CNY – had proved to be a rather very expensive month for me as an owner of a car.

Firstly I accidentally scraped my left back tire against the kerb and caused a small portion of the tire sidewall to be sliced off. I know for a fact that whilst you can abuse the main tread and still drive safely, the same cannot be said for the sidewall. And it was painful because the tire was still new – barely a year since I last changed it. I took it to 2 different tire shops – the first one looked at it and said it was nothing to worry.

Enforcement 101: Dumb Motorcyclists, Skinning Them Alive

(The problem with some dumb motorcyclists is that they think that they are invincible especially when they are not wearing any helmets. Initially, I felt the same way too but I recognize that it was nothing but a mirage – unlike those driving cars, you have nothing to protect you from serious injuries. That is why I always ride sensibly and with a good measure of protection – proper jacket, gloves and helmet and abiding traffic rules all the time. Image source: Perak Today)

Enforcement 101: Quote of Week – Unsafe Cars

“The lack of demand among Malaysians for safety features is the main reason why many vehicles sold in the country do not meet international safety standards”

(Just how many of the locally made cars had even passed the basic crash test with flying colours? If you know the answer, then you will know that we been screwed with unsafe cars for a very long time now but the question is who’s’ fault is it? Image source: Miros)

Parenting 101: Leaving Innocent Children Home Alone

children parent parenting

I don’t know whether it is a case of recklessness or plain ignorance but I get very angry when I see parents not taking care of their children in the right manner

(The 2 children focusing on the cabin light. If both parents have to go, take the kids with them – they are still awake and is able to walk or if have to leave them behind, one of the adults should stay back as well to take care of them but never, never leave them alone more so in a car with the engine still running. P.s. the video looks dark due to this)

Driving Skills 101: Where’s Your Helmet, Stupid?

(Lawless in Tenang or stupidity on the highest level where kids can ride bikes without any license or helmet? The fatso in the front seems very happy – I wonder how his parents will feel when this fatso is knocked down by a car and his unprotected head cracks open on the hard surface of the road, turning him into a living vegetable for rest of his life?

National Security 101: African Menace in Puchong

africa

(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?

Trip to Amazing Chennai 2010: Part 5 – Crazy Traffic in Chennai Streets

(This is one of the shots that I took in Chennai – a priest cutting in and out of traffic wearing no helmet. Just a simple dhoti covering his bare skin and for the feet, rather worn-out sandals – I wonder how serious his injuries are going to be if he falls down. I have seen ladies with saree with fast bikes and no helmets as well. Higher-resolution shot here)
