It's Mine It's Mine It's Mine!

Short of crying and rolling on the floor as sign of protest, now Malaysia want to claim its stake in the "so-called" Malaysian food such as laksa (all types though Penang's the best :)), nasi lemak, Hainanese chicken rice, chilli crab and bak kut teh, Tourism Minister Ah Yen Yen said.
Oh... why didn't put in Penang Char Kuey Tiau as well??? Oh I see....cox Ah Guan Eng said anyone using "Penang" has to seek approval from the Penang government is it?
Hmm... I wonder what the folks in Hainan island in China or our Singaporean neighbour gonna say about this....
You wonder why there's not much good slapstick comedy lately??? Well, we had enough of them in our local politicians.

Meme : Save Yvonne's Sight


(got tagged by Maverick SM on this. read about this before in Uncle Zorro and Marina Mahathir's blog too)

Let us Malaysians shower our compassion and generosity in helping those who are unfortunate and in distress. There is a sweet girl by the name of Yvonne Foong. She is also a blogger and is only 22. Yvonne Foong discovered she had a rare genetic disease at 16. Doctors told her she had neurofibromatosis type 2 that causes benign tumours to grow in her brain, spine and along her peripheral nerves. The disease is incurable.

Yvonne has survived several surgeries to remove tumours - one on her spine and the rest on her brain. She is now semi-paralysed on her face, deaf, partially blind, has poor balance and a stiff right leg. Yvonne who blogs (www.yvonnefoong.com) and is the author of I’m Not Sick, Just A Bit Unwell, (picture), has been raising money on her own to pay for her operations.

Right now she needs to undergo yet another surgery. Yvonne is losing her eyesight. The operation is due in December and once again she needs to raise funds for it. The cost of the surgery is USD44,000 (RM154,770) and the cost of her hospital stay for two weeks is USD915 or RM3219. "She has already raised RM10,000 of this but obviously still has a long way to go. She's hoping to raise the rest by republishing her book I'm Not Sick, Just A Little Bit Unwell in English and Chinese. The books are now available in Malaysian bookshops and from her website store. She is also selling T-shirts at bazaars and via her web site store.

You can read about her surgery and donate to her fund here."You can also help by sending on this meme.

Thinking About You - Norah Jones

I love Norah Jones' debut album, Come Away With Me. However, her 2nd album didn't spark my interest that much. Her latest album, "Not Too Late" includes one of my favourite song there, "Thinking About You". And now.... waiting for her new album, "The Fall" by November 17, 2009.

Devil's Place - Brian Gomez

Have not read any fictions lately and Devil's Place is definitely a great enzyme to kick-start my interest in reading fictions again!
Funny, witty, pages turning and make me laugh!!!!
You will too, if you are Malaysian!

Another Probe, Another Task Force... Well This Time A SUPER Task Force

From Malaysiakini.... "The cabinet has today decided to establish a super task force, headed by Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Sidek Hassan, to investigate the Port Klang Free Zone scandal" (bold emphasised by me)
Well...I don't know about you people but to me, it's another tactic to buy time capitalizing on the Malaysian-forget-easily syndrome.
To me, just reveal what OTK revealed to the cabinet. After all, cabinet is formed to run the government which should be answerable to us, the rakyat!!! (well... this sentence sounds so naive, I know)

The Chinese believe "9" symbolises long-lasting.
Long-lasting it will be.

Seriously.... Read This......

The uncivilised behaviour we witnessed in Shah Alam does not reflect the community. Marina Mahathir wrote about those in her blog. Somehow, I was touched by this one by Haris Ibrahim. Read here.

31 August (Updated)

I remembered telling myself to wear a black shirt today but since I am going for treasure hunt which involves lots of outdoor walking under the scorching sun, I decided to fulfill my promise in the evening.


It was a great hunt and a sweet one since our team, De StoneS got no. 1 for the 1st time. We laughed heartily not only because we won 1st place for the 1st time but because the prize of the 1st placing, a printer was donated by us, which we won in the previous Palliative Care Hunt!!!

Speaking of 31 August... did anyone watch the celebration in Parliament on TV news? The hand gesture they were doing while shouting "Merdeka" looks confusing to me.... anyone watched it and please kindly enlighten me on that?

Raw Jazz - Hanjin 陳奐仁 (Updated)

See him performing live here. Brilliant!!!

One of my favourite - Cheek to Cheek


If you are familiar with HK music scene, you will know Hanjin 陳奐仁 especially if you know Edison Chen. The Invisible Man anyone?
Given his hip-hop and trend-setting background this recorded-in-one-take-with-a-3-piece band-back-to-basics-raw jazz album is indeed a pleasant surprise! After searching for it high and low, I managed to get it from Rock Records in KL. Branded as on eof the best album of the year by Times magazine, this will stay in my playlist for quite a long time.
