And most importantly, read this book by the wickedly funny Malaysian writer Kam Raslan, the brother of Karim Raslan, called
A funny read indeed. Of course, he's more well known appearing in the automobile show in Astro but he is funny and it's obvious in this book. A 2-series of travelogue written by the Sin Chew Jit Poh journalist, 林悦 and her photographer friend. Recommended. A great deal from Popular Bookstore, a hefty 15% discount.
This is a must read for those who wish to understand more about Malaysia and Islam in the Malaysian context in particular. "From Majapahit to Putrajaya" by Farish A. Noor who's a respected academician with articles published in MalaysiaKini and a load of alternative-stream-media (as opposed to msm - mainstream media).
OK, I promised to finish the unread ones before start buying again. :)

Seems like the happiness of the catholic church and the democratic minded folks was short-lived as "the Cabinet decided" that Herald can't use the word "Allah" in its publications.
This (read here) comes a few days after the permit renewal was approved without any condition.
It's like the government is doing the chocolate advertisement, "Now You See, Now You Don't"!!!!! Speaking of consistency!!!! Gosh.....
Wat can I say? Dumbfounded. Astounded. Conclusion? No hope. Not only the weighing scale is not accurate anymore but there's no scale anymore.
...........the event with the bangs (pardon the pun)
Soiled Leg had a broken leg now in politics. Admire his guts to admit the dvd but wish he could stop further commenting on this issue esp about "regretted going to the same hotel and same room" which shows no remorse on his side. Having said that, he's one of the rare breed of politicians who's no-nonsense and no tai-chi. Wasted.
Iowa caucus will see the lead of the presidential hopeful. Not that I'm not patriotic but since we don't know the real date for our erection (Zam again...) and we are advised not to speculate though our Erection (Zam again.....) Commission abruptly-passed-parliamental-bill-enabled chairman claimed to know when's the next erection (Zam again...) gonna be, so I can only focus on other nation's. Somemore the one in Pakistan is delayed and HK will only get their first real erection (Zam again.....) in 2017. Oh by the way, should we be grateful that we have erection (Zam again.....) every 5 years and not like those HKers who will get theirs in 10 years time?

It's Seppo (middle) and Hanna (left), a sweet couple from Finland whom I picked up from the entrance to the Kinabalu National Park few weeks ago. They were waiting for a bus to Sandakan to no avail apparently as they start to do the hitchhiking sign when I'm near. They were so ecstatic when I asked them to jump in as I was on the way to Sandakan as well. Driving with companion is always better than driving alone. And in this case, it was a fun and pleasant one as well. They were in Sabah for holiday and had booked a place in Sepilok Jungle Resort, which coincidentally owned by my friend's dad!
Thanks for the company and wish them have a great time in Sabah. As I always mixed up the capitals of the Scandinavian countries before this, now I remember that Helsinki is the capital of Finland, the Nokialand while Oslo and Stockholm are Norway's and Sweden's respectively. Hanna, you should be proud of me hahaha!!!!
