I just couldn't believe it! How can this happen? I mean the Federal Government plan to do this??? At the expense of local Sabahans??? Now I understand why the uncles in the coffee shop keeps complaining about federal government.
How to show our objection in this case??????????? Oh speaking of which, the famous MP is in the limelight on this issue again. I felt sorry that all those who wear bow-tie cox the bow-tie wearing politicians are definitely not the right example of wise and thoughtful person that you guys are normally associated with.

Emma is a great guest and we chatted a lot while she joined me travelling back to Sandakan, from both our interest in movies, musics and her stories about her own travel, life and Scandinavian countries in general. She's definitely welcomed back here anytime!!! I'm sure Hezrina will agree to this too.
Hey, Emma, the pics above is what I promised to send to you. You can copy it here. Take care and keep in touch.
Auntie Sherry changed from babysitting other people's baby in a nursery to babysitting her own.
Anyway, I wanna apologize to Auntie Sherry for forgetting to wish her Happy Birthday on her big day and I wanna dedicate this lame post to her as the mean to make it up haha.....
Still remember this? I know, it's ages!!!
For the past few days, I have been cornered by the word baby. Not that I had one or going to have one but the news about baby, the baby visiting activities filled up my daily task hehe....
Starting from the cute little god-daughter of mine, Olivia who stole everyone's heart to the recently check-in baby girl Carmen of Andrew to Kathy and also the baby-in-coming news from the ever joyful J, it's babies in the air!!!!
Mummy Sherry and Olivia
Uncle Ah Tan and Olivia

Took the pics below while driving along the Shantung Road and stopped my car to take the pic. The rainbow was formed across the whole horizon, framing a half circle while it's still drizzling.
I believe somewhere over the rainbow, there lies a hope and that's where I will be. It's a new chapter and definitely a much looking-forwarded one.
Also to some of my friends who's embarking on a whole new journey, all the best!!!

I used to dread Mondays, being the first working day after the enjoyable 2 days break (oh.. for those who still work on Sat, sorry yeah....). But given a new perspective of looking at things, it can't be that bad.
My previous Monday and yesterday were a testatment to that. So, from now on, there'll be no Monday blues but perfecto Monday instead!!!

Was in KL few days ago and being the bookish nerd I am, my routine hang-out in shopping malls will be bookstore and CD store. This time around, I broke my record by buying all the stuff above. Oh... one CD is actually liangmoi's and another one a gift from Borobodur from PT. 2 travelogue, 1 novel, 1 language started kit (I must be crazy!) and 3 Chinese short essays compilations from Kinokuniya, KLCC and Borders, The Curve.
I am a Yasmin Ahmad's fan. Having watched Sepet and Gubra I wouldn't want to miss the 3rd instalment of the Orked series. However, I didn't manage to catch it in the cinema (oh... these are the films where WE SHOULD ALL WATCH in cinema to support the movie industry) like what I did for the previous two. But like they said, delayed gratification is definitely worth it.

Even if you didn't have the ticket, it's OK cox you can watch the whole concert nearby Padang Merdeka as it's open air!!! What a treat to the KK folks!!!
Oh, they entertained the crowd request twice too!!! Firstly at the earlier part of the concert was "Chong Dong" 冲动. And towards the later part of the concert, they answered my request, yeah... MY REQUEST thanks to my loud shouting voice, they belted out half of "Thinking Of You is My Pre-sleep Habit" 想你是临睡的习惯
I think I missed some of their rather new songs which I'm not that familiar.
It was a great mini concert and of course when it's free, it's even better hahahaha.....

It's interesting to see some parkour scenes here as well. Since shown in the previous James Bond movie, parkour gained quite a prominence feature in every mode of media.
The movie centres around King's Cross, London which is turning into a centre of the massive urban relanscaping effort. Camden's Lock was featured in a great deal as well and brought back my memory of my previous visit.
What keeps lingering :
1. You maybe lost and some unknown people may know better than you like the hooker character tried to portray. The fox and the fox skin left in Will's car is another testament of Minghella's symbol-using tendencies.
2. Love is no ordinary crime.
3. Lie. Steal. Cheat. Love. All intangible mess.

I'm staring out into the night,
I guess everybody knows that it's Visit Malaysia Year 2007 targeted to lure in as many tourists as we can this year but the dampening news is that the 1st quarter target had not been met and it's worrying every single party involved. This couldn't be worse when the country has been plagued with discouraging news on cheating holiday homes, bad attitude and overcharging cabbies (sorry to those who's not involved but the bad seeds are just too many of them) and tonnes of other bad incidents.
Without doubt, Thailand is amazing. Amazing land of smiles, amazing friendliness of its people, it's downright amazing. Slogan wise, it's simple and straight to the point.
The sour grape of Malaysians will make fun of this slogan as what's uniqueness? It's their kiasu-ness of course. However, again it's the classic example of simple impactful tagline. And they have a Chinese version also which is brilliant for targetting the mainland Chinese citizens with so much money to spend! Hey Malaysian toursim topgun, don't just aim at the Middle-Eastern Arabians, the mainland Chinese are rich with cash now!!!
Lack of ohmppp....if you ask me but maybe because I haven't been to the Philippines. However, it's a simple effective one.
Not an effective one if one does not know what is Mekong or understand the aesthetic beauty associated to the pulse of the Mekong Delta. Having said that, it's a nature paradise and it's my target.
Nice effective tagline and it's definitely perfected by the head tilting gesture of the Indian speaker. The hand-tatoo not to be mistaken to be Madonna's in her video Frozen, is spot-on. Like the whole concept of Incredible India. One of my friend visited the Northern India and the pics he took are amazing or.... incredible. Definitely a must-go.
Too simple and too long, a mouthful!!! It can do better I believe.
Given the house arrest of Aung San Syu Kii and the unexplored mystique of Myanmar, it's a winning simple slogan.
I have no complain about Angkor Wat being the World Heritage but banking on that to the slogan is like putting everything in one basket. There were many world heritage now and more should be emphasised on other things Cambodia can offer. Having said that, I LOVE Cambodia especially Angkor Wat to the extend I had been there twice this year hehe.....
