I strongly recommend the movie especially to those teachers and educators and of course to all the youngsters in the country, those of us who're lucky enough to have the chance to pursue education however bad ours is indeed.
It drew some reference to some other movies such as Children of Heaven (Majid Majidi -Iran) and Not One Less (Zhang Yi Mou - China) but I guess it's not any fault of the film makers or the author as children's education is a universal theme.

The man is one year short of 30 years old, the supposingly the start of the golden age of a man. Oh no..... I'm not talking about myself but it's the protagonist, Harry in Tony Parson's book best seller, Man and Boy.
But of course, I'm that age too though I'm doubtful how "golden" will the age be in the future hahahaha...... Reading it now and it's quite true to some comments such as...
"A grown up novel that is simultaneously a heart-rending read and suffused with an irresistable reality" - GlasgowHerald

Someone told me tat the McD's fries is the best around. Still remembered I was being laughed and almost insulted (haha......) for saying the rival, the KFC's not bad.
In the airport now waiting for flight for another few days of outstation, which explains the lack of posting here.
Economy is definitely not like what our PM-in-waiting says... Guess he's still shocked in the state of euphoria that he finally have a chance to strike the PM post.
Anyway, with news of bail out and market tumble crash everyday in the newspaper... it's really bad. Zewt's blog made me think a lot of my career and how limited sometimes the choices we are left with. Anyway, life goes on and choices are choices, need to be made.
Happy Surviving 2008.

(with all due respect, is this the Khalil Yaakob ex-Information Minister from UMNO???? So, UMNO man can be the head of state just like tat? Oh...what can I say, just look at the list Sabah's head of state know already lah.... OK, another story)
.....for his contribution in promoting tourism in Malacca!!!
Wow... am I supposed to be outraged? Of course not!!!!!!!!!! Aiyah.... all this laduk laduk thing like shopping in the flea market nowadays already.... it's NOTHING RARE lah (like the Cantonese says, if you take a M16 and do a shooting spree on the street, you will definitely hit quite a lot of them). Sooner maybe Ali Rustam (AR)can give award to laduk or tansili or maybe even dun to Afonso de Albuquerque for if it's not because of Afonso, AR won't get the job and speak so much to show the whole world how clever he is.
"Najib must keep cronies and family at bay, says Mahathir"
The above was quoted by TDM. And he continued....
"There are several former members of parliament and experts whose advice he should seek to run the country," the former prime minister told Bernama after addressing a Malaysian youth seminar at the University of Melbourne. See??? Who do you think he means here?
"But Najib must not try to do everything himself. He must get proper advice from the right people. Aiyo... sudah terang bersuluh pulak!!!
"The votes we lost were protest votes. Malaysians were not happy and this was reflected at the ballot box," he said. Notice how he used the word "we"? Thought he left UMNO already. Now why we?
The old monster is set to barge in. Brace ourselves. Or pray hard.
Once upon a time in a village in India , a man announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10.
The villagers seeing there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.
The man bought thousands at $10, but, as the supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their efforts. The man further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.
Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to $25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now act as buyer, on his behalf.
In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers: ‘ Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when he returns from the city, you can sell them back to him for $50. ‘
The villagers squeezed together their savings and bought all the monkeys.
Then they never saw the man or his assistant again, only monkeys everywhere!

Wow........ when everyone started to drift away from Pak Liar since he already passed the baton, Koh Tsu Koon (KTK) did the reverse and call Pak Liar "Bapa Demokrasi" / Father of Democracy!!!
Well, we have Bapa Kemerdekaan, Pembangunan, Kedamaian and what's TDM's gelaran?
I would say Pak Liar's loosen grip on the media that subsequently led to more space/freedom to express our views was just accidental, due to is indecisiveness etc.
For me, I think it's flip flop.
From Zorro's blog, below is the excerpt from the hearing of the RPK's case and you will realize how brilliant our prosecution team are:
Prosecution: This is the email your received?
Prosecution: How come there is no signature to this email?
Or maybe the learned prosecutor referring to electronic signature? Maybe...it's me who's jahil apparently.
Have a good and sick-less weekend!

The Soiled Leg is running for Deputy in MCA coming election.
The "I No Speak Inglis" MMT is running for Deputy in UMNO coming election.
The ex-Sabah CM OS who was owing the casinos in UK a few millions debt also running for his UMNO division head.
Feel free to add on to the list....
I crave for what I call sickness food. I thought it's comfort food but upon checking Wiki, I found out that comfort food is totally another thing. It's not some special menu but basically mom's cooking (yeah....mommy's child!). It can be macaroni or noodles cooked with meat without oil or porridge. Or something like that. It doesn't really matter cox the sickness food will make you heal faster. I guess it's the tender loving care from your families or your loved ones that heal you indeed. For that, I am forever grateful.....
Saw this wish list in Malaysiakini by Meng Yee. In a way, if Pak Liar dares to do even one of the following, I will cease to call him Pak Liar haha...
1. Insist that the trial of the decade be completed by December. Expose whoever was behind the murder of Altantuya and bring justice for the family of the deceased.
2. Unleash the ACA fully and give them the green light to bring to book any alleged corruption involving the defence ministry and the ministry of trade and industry in the last five years. Prosecute those who have plundered and robbed from the citizens.
3. Reshuffle your cabinet and bring back Zaid Ibrahim. Remove all those who challenged your presidency. Give Zaid Ibrahim a free hand in reforming the judiciary
4. Revisit and call for a royal inquiry into the 1988 judicial crises and prosecute those who have wronged the nation.
5. Investigate and prosecute all those involved in Project M where illegal immigrants flooded Sabah and were given Malaysian ICs.
6. Repeal the ISA and free all ISA detainees or bring to court those who are truly criminals.7. Implement the IPCMC for the Royal Malaysian Police
Personally, I hope to see #5 being dealt with but the possibility is highly unlikely.

From Malaysiakini, a revelation from Eric Majimbun from the left-BN SAPP during his other revelation that an unknown Filipino shared the address with him:
He said according to the 1970-2000 census, the population in Sabah increased from 636,431 to 2,449,389 (285%), compared to Sarawak's 106 % (from 976,269 to 2,012,616) and Peninsular Malaysia's 113 % (from 10,439,430 to 22,202,614).

As - Rubber Band & 小肥
One of my favourite songs.
What A Difference A Day Made - Rubber Band & 小肥
Jazz classic. Love the versions by Dinah Washington and Jamie Cullum.
Put Your Records On - Rubber Band & 小肥
Cover of Corrine Bailey Ray
Actually I'm looking for a song by the Rubber Band I heard from radio but don't know what's the name. Meanwhile, enjoy the cover versions of the songs by them.
