The Journey of death....

How do you face death ?
I seek not irrational words of religiosity.
I know for sure,
the minute we are born,
we are destined to die.
Life is a game nobody gets out alive.
Death is a certainty of life,
inevitable and unavoidable.
When death comes,
it is only a breath away.

Would death be painful
or freedom of miserable pains ?
I seek not
meaningless answer of irrationality.
I wish not
submitting myself into denial of eventuality.
For I do not have a choice
to decide life and death.
Let it come and let it consume me.
While my breath is ticking away into the last day,
Let life not slip into decay by fear for living,
I shall live my life, hopefully, however I want to.
I shall live life to the fullest and not in vain.

World's Largest Bikini Photo Shoot

1010 Women in bikinis posed for a photographer at Sydney's Bondi Beach on 26th September 2007. They set the Guinness world record for the largest swimsuit photo shoot. I like this record setting feast, much better than the recent ego seeking Huge Ego's self proclaimed World Largest Chicken Soup.

Would Malaysia be able to organize such similar event of beautiful ladies in Bikini ? Nah, I don't think so. Because, there are simply too many noisy idiots who think that it is sinful for women to expose their beautiful bodies.

I do admired the freedom of artistic expression of the Aussies. From where I come from, I am sicked and tired of those farting noises from a small group of religious farkers wanting to impose all sorts of restrictions in the name of religion. Honestly, I do sincerely wish those people can keep their religious beliefs to themselves and secured it into the privacy of their own homes. I hope I am not being offensive to the religious sensitivity of those people. But, I love to see women in Bikinis. Honestly, no insensitivity intended. Beauties are meant to be appreciated. Those harmonic motions flashings and bouncing does inspire me to shoot the moon. Oh Thank you God, for making the beach so beautiful.

I am publicly a secular man and privately a very religious man, trying to comprehend and adapt to the insanity of an increasingly circular nation. Pi mai pi mai tang tu. In the mean time, I love boob boob here and boob boob there. May the abundance of boobs enlightened all of us to appreciate artistic eroticisms. May our peckers be forever able to stand in salute to all these beautiful creations of God. Life is beautiful.

Don't play play with jealous woman....

In the southern state of Johore, Kamaruddin Abdullah, a 43 years old Indonesian man, has a domestic encounter of a different kind with his 47 years old first wife, Umidah Setu. Kamaruddin was resting on the bed after sex with his wife. The wife was apparently driven by jealousy when the husband compared her with his newly wedded second wife. She took a kitchen knife and attacked the husband's penis. Despite the pains caused by his almost severed penis, Kamarudin managed to ride his motorcycle to the local hospital to seek medical help. Wow, what a real man ! With 11 stitches, the doctor managed to reattached his penis. The 47 years old wife was arrested by the police for voluntarily causing grievous hurt with a dangerous weapon.

Read 不滿娶小妾 妒妻割夫子孫根 .

So, you itchy men out there, does that made you feel like a real man to venture beyond your little manhood to have more than one wife ? Well, it maybe your god damned rights to have multiple wives. But we are living in modern society, not tribal cave. Be sensitive to your spouse, and have some basic respect to the mother of your children. Say TAK NAK lah to your little itch. Don't you think it is impossible for one little dick to cover used holes of different sizes at any one time ? Never, never, underestimate what a woman can do when she is jealous and agitated ! Snip, snip... dickory hickory dicks, one day, your little dick may end up in your doggie's belly.

In the name of God ? Again ?

Iran submitted a 70-page document, titled “In the Name of God – Report on Human Rights Situation in Canada”, to the United Nations. The document claimed that the Canadian government violated human rights in denying her people good, clean water, and right to work. The document also claimed that "Routine unlawful strip and beatings by Canadian police has been a matter of concern for international community.......... the practice of police is alarming simply because it is functioning as if there is no need to have judges." And, "To the great dismay of the international community, it is a great concern that the rights of women are violated, and no serious attention has been paid in promotion and protection of women's rights in Canada." Read HERE for further report

Wow, I did not realized that there is a mountain in Iran called “High Moral Ground” ! Iran is trying to champion the world's human rights ? Nice try ! But wouldn't it be better if Iran can showcase to the world its superb human rights record ? I am very sure, Iran's record speaks volume of its credibility in human rights abuses. Maybe Canada should enforced the dressing codes of forcing all women to wear burqas to meet Iran's high standard of rights for women. By the way, I personally think that it is despicable for one country to use the name of God in their attempt to discredit other country. Please, leave God out of your demented minds.

I lived in Canada for a few years. With no insensitivity intended to those apology seekers, Canada is still one of the world most peaceful multi racial country with respectable constitutionalized and institutionalized respect for human rights and equal opportunities for minorities. Living condition in Canada is anytime much better than Iran. Standard of Living is also much better than Iran. If you asked me to choose between Canada and Iran in term of abuses of human rights and unfair treatments to the minorities, I have this to say “In the name of my Dog, and I swear to all almighties, Canada is much better country compared to Iran”. By the way, Canadians used clean gas in their kitchen, so, I presumed Canadian's stainless steel kettle is much cleaner than the Iranian's pot. For your reading pleasure, please read HERE, HERE, and HERE on Iran's proud human rights record.

Canada a violator of human rights ? Well, what can I say, except to shake my head in laughter, to acknowledge that I do enjoy good humours and jokes of self proclaimed righteous men and wo-men from the fantasy land of masturbated human rights paradise.

In the name of religions......

Whether we like it or not, the world is now at war with each other. We are not experiencing the wars between nations, but grouping of people under the same commonality of perverted religious values to stage and instigate unrests and violences against others. The illogical reasoning of religions seemed to be the favorite justifications for instigating hatreds and violences against other religions. This illogical ideological wars has break new frontiers of using religion as weapon of mass deception to brainwash its followers to commit barbaric and satanic acts.

What are the motives of the so called self proclaimed leaders of these religions ? I do not know. Perhaps, they want to be idolized as heroes in times of instabilities and troubles. Perhaps, there are hosts of other reasons. It is not up to me to speculate. He who instigate violences and destructions in the name of God are usually people who lost hope in their own religion and had lost faith in God.

We are now living in the 21st century, but we are also being regressed into the dark age of humanity. Religions are pitted against each others to established superiority position in the minds of the monkeys. We imposed and transgressed the religious rights of others, claiming that it is our rights to do so in the name of our God. We are after all, a bunch of uncivilized demented minds.

Sad to note that, every religion marketed their position as religion of peace and love, and its God the most merciful and benevolent. But resorted to gain publicities and superiority through violences, hatreds, and intolerances. Almost all mass violences and terrorist acts in the world today are committed in the name of religions. I find it amazing that, majority of the followers of the so called religions of peace did not came out to condemned the perpetrators whenever a mass violence or terrorist act is committed. Instead, the world is being asked my the followers of the particular religion involved to understand the root cause of the violence and terrorist act, and be sympathetic to the aggressors. These followers of so called religions of peace are the worst culprits and indirect terrorists. They are the worst mass murderers and hypocrites that commit atrocities against mankind in our modern history. I do wonder how they can come to terms with their insanity, self proclaimed righteousness, and their faked religiosity.

Increasingly, we also came across cowards who tried to impose their religious values on others by resorting to cruelty on animals such as dogs, pigs, cows, etc. Misguided or otherwise, whether their religions are religions of peace or otherwise, I sincerely do not wish to comment further. But I guess it is suffice to say that, their actions speak for themselves. My only frank comment is, if we have any differing opinions on others' religions, we should refrained from venting our frustration on helpless animals and violences against innocent people.

The proper and civilize avenue to resolve differing religious values and opinions is through dialogs and discussions in forum. Let us not resorting to barbarisms using act of violences, act of instigating hatreds, act of using force to impose and transgressed into the beliefs of others, or any other form of despicable indirect act that may cause hardships and sufferings to others.

I do not wish to offend any religions. But sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I do hope sanity prevails. If a follower of our religion committed violences, murders, or any acts against the law, it is our duty as the believer in God to speak up against such act and condemned the perpetrators as criminals. Let us not resorts to justified their acts with excuses simply because these criminals belongs to the same religious movement as ours. The insanity against humanity must stop immediately, let us not be perverted to shout the slogan of peace and love on one hand, but, on the other hand, provide immoral and indirect support to these misguided people who used religions as justification to quench their thirst for bloods and other ulterior motives.

God do not need mortal being like us to defend his good name or position. Let us not be deluded to think that it is our duty to defend God. Have a peace with yourselves, and be peaceful towards others. Keep your belief to yourselves, respect the beliefs of others, and most important of all, mind your own business.

I felt nauseated to see triads organizations invoking the power of God in secret rituals to offer divine protection to their gangsters to conduct extortions, kidnapping, murders, and all sorts of criminal activities. How are these rituals different from mass violences and terrorisms conducted in the name of God ?

Name me one God that asked his followers to commit murders and violences against others. There are NONE ! I believe in religions that preached peace and love. Beyond that, all other religions that urged their followers to commit crimes, murders, and violences are satanic cults, and its followers, satan worshippers and barbarians.

My coffee do taste very bitter this morning...... this restic seventh day is, but a painful reminder of humanity approaching its end of galaxical journey to self destruction. Life is, afterall, a game that nobody gets out alive. The promised eternity is, but an over glorified illusion and insanity. In the mean time, I would like to live a secular life publicly, and a religious life privately. For the moment, heaven is on earth for me, please do not contaminate my habitat with your deluded and demented religious superiority.

Is there God ? Is there God ? Om Mani Pedme Hum.

Love me love my dog.

An interesting survey was carried out by Beijing's Renming University on dog ownership. The survey is supported by Companion Animal Research and Information Centre. The survey was conducted on 1050 people, of which 693 people do not keep dogs. The conclusion is, civilized and educated people are receptive to dog ownership. Majority of the people surveyed are not opposed to other people owning dog. Most people also consider dogs as lovely, loyal, and friendly. The survey also noted a small percentage of perverts who go around hating, beating, or abuse dogs at every available opportunity.

Prayer of a Stray Dog
( author unknown )

Dear God, Please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain,
And Dear God, I pray as I run in the rain,
That someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard
Sometimes with no water and God that was hard!
So I chewed my leash God, and I ran away
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now God, I'm tired and hungry and cold.
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
While I run the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad God, Please help if you can,
For I have become just a "Victim of Man!"
I'm wormy Dear God, and I'm ridden with fleas and
All that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good
And I won't chew their shoes, but I'll do as I should.
I'll love them, protect them and try to obey
When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay!
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm gonna die!
And I've got so much love and devotion to give,
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So Dear God PLEASE, Please answer my Prayer and
Send me somebody who WILL really care...
That is, Dear God, If YOU'RE REALLY there!

For those people who are still bend on hating dogs using all sorts of irrational reasons, my advise to them is simple. REPENT ! Otherwise, in your next life, you shall be reincarnated as an abused street dog. I loved dogs. Dogs are men's best friend. It is as simple as that. Come to think of it, between dogs and cats, I still prefer dogs. BUT, I will never hate cats. The sights of warm pussies can also be quite pleasing and tempting at times. Ahhhh.... tai tak ng sek tak, ngor sei sai loh.....

At my age, I would rather prefer a Hot Dog over a warm pussy.

Women fight for rights to bare breasts

...Two Swedish female students, Ragnhild Karlsson, 22, and her friend Kristin Karlsson, 21, are demanding their rights after they were banned from bathing topless at a swimming pool in Uppsala. If girls are forced to wear bikinis, boys should be too, one of the women told The Local.........” Read Further at Women fight for rights to bare breasts.

Honestly, I have no problem if these two sweet young things want to bare their breasts in the public pool. God's creations are always beautiful. If we have no problem accepting the theory of creation, why are we still in self denial moods to accept God's creation of curvaceous bodies and beautiful breasts of women ? Beautiful breasts are meant to be appreciated ! Please, please, I beg all you perverted preachers of morality with my bended knee to stop forcing women to cover up their beautiful breasts. Occasionally, I do enjoy watching woman's breasts. Men with little tits are allowed to bare their chest, but women with beautiful breasts are asked to cover up. I do felt very sad that my rights to see all things beautiful are being unreasonably denied by a bunch of others. Good lord, how can people be so narrow minded. How can people be so insensitive to force women to cover their breasts. To Ragnhild Karlsson and Kristin Karlsson, if the public pools in Sweden bar you from baring your breasts, please take note that 2007 is Visit Malaysia Year. You can always come to Malaysia to bare your breasts in my private pool. I promised, I will not.......... Have boobs will travel.... lai lar lai lar........ Tua liap Nee.... pek pek swee swee tua tua liap... toe chiew chit liap, chea chiew chit liap... liap liap tua tua liap... Si pek shiok... wah lou leh, beh tar han......

Garden Flowers

These are common garden flowers found in Malaysia. What are names for these flowers ? Who cares ? I am not going to waste my breath or burn my brain energies to find out. As long as it is pleasing to the eyes, let's just keep it that way....

Roast pork......

Hor Cow Lan Fun ! After a tired day, my brain just wouldn't work properly to give me any sponteneous suggestion of what to eat for dinner. We live to eat and eat to live, so like it or not, I need to fill my stomach before I can think straight again. I just want a simple meal this evening. What can that be ?
Hmmmm... how about one of Malaysian's famous dishes ? Why not ? So off I go, a dinner consists of plain white rice, roast pork, Char Siew (BBQ pork), and Chinese tea. I love roast pork and Char Siew, the crispy roasted skin, the succulent meats that melt like butter in the mouth, and the smoky BBQ flavour of the Char Siew. In between, the reliable Chinese tea to neutralize and wash away the cholesterol that comes with the pork.

Simple meal. But very fulfilling and delicious. Want to join me for another round of roast port and char siew ? Roast pork is good.......... good to the last bite !

Terry Fox

A tribute to Terry Fox
(July 28, 1958 – June 28, 1981)

A heroic Canadian who sacrificed his life to the cause of charity.
May we all remember his good deeds to humanity.

In the early 80's, I was still a college student in Canada. Time flies, more than 20 years has gone by. Occasionally I do recalled back the memories of my life as a student in Canada. Those were good old days of young man in search of knowledge in foreign land. I cherished those good memories of interacting with friendly and supportive people in a friendly country.

There is one young Canadian I find it hard to forget - Terry Fox. The young Canadian initiated the Marathon Of Hope to raise fund for cancer research. I can still recalled the grit and determined face of this young man on TV screen as he determinedly run across Canada on one leg and one artificial leg.

Terry Fox started his Marathon of Hope on April 12 1980 from Newfoundland by dipping his leg in Atlantic Ocean. His intended to complete his marathon run by dipping his leg in the Pacific Ocean at Victoria, british Columbia. After 143 days of running ( limping), he was forced to stop his quest on September 1st 1980 due to the worsening of bone cancer spreading to his lung. In total he covered more than 5000KM passing through Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario.

Terry Fox passed away on June 28th 1981. He was only 23 years old. Although he was unable to complete his Marathon Of Hope, but he helped raised awareness for Cancer research and Millions of dollars were collected for charity and research. He had also inspired “Terry Fox Run” in many parts of the world in September every year to raise money for cancer research. He was voted the most Famous Canadian of the 20th century.

Please visit The Terry Fox Foundation to learn more about how this young man single handedly trying to make this world better place for humanity.

A shrine for Barbie ?

Talk about spiritualism........ In Singapore's Pulau Ubin, there is a shrine dedicated to the spirit of a German girl who died during World War I. The little girl's spirit has been elevated to the status of Deity by the locals. The shrine is known as "Lady Datuk Kong Shrine". What religion is this ? New Age ?

“.....Three years ago, a local emigrant to Australia had the same weird dream for three nights. In his dream, a western girl led him to a shop. She then asked him to buy a Barbie doll and bring it to the"Lady Na Tuk Gong Shrine". The man followed the directions given with a grain of salt. To his surprise, he found the shop and also the doll the girl described in his dream. He bought the doll and brought it back to Pulau Ubin. Today, a lot of people come to the temple to worship the Barbie doll and it is said their prayers for safety and health are answered....” Read further at Sin Chew Daily's "拿督公姑娘廟"

Man died while playing Online Games.....

“..... A man in southern China collapsed and died at a cybercafe, state media reported on Monday......” Click on the above picture for larger view or click HERE for the full report.

Be warned, online games addictions can kill you ! I still can not comprehend why there are so many people willingly allowed themselves to be addicted in the virtual world of online fantasies. Sure, most of these online gamers are intelligent people, but I doubt they have any emotional stability and social skills in real life. They may have a lot of virtual friends in the cyberworld, but when the computer is shutdown, they are back to being a lonely soul. It is okay to indulge in occasional online games as a form of entertainment. But it is not healthy to obsessively involved in trying to gain recognitions through online games. Put these so called “serious” online gamers into any real life situations, and I doubt they are capable of handling any real life issues. Get real, face the real world ! Achievements in online fantasy is merely an act of emotional escapism, it doesn't accord you real success in real life.

World's Tallest flower blossoms in Tokyo

The tallest flower in the world has come into bloom at the Koishikawa Botanical Garden of the University of Tokyo. The blooming bud is about 1 meter in length and the plant reaches some 3.1 meters in total. The botanical garden in Tokyo's Bunkyo-ku is the only facility in Japan that raises the flower, technically called the "Amorphophallus Gigas" from Sumatra, Indonesia. It blossomed for the first time in four years. (Source : Mainichi Daily News )

The Chicken Soup Politics

Once upon a time, for some strange reasons, the land of the “Little Venice” of South America, tried very hard to attract international attention.

First, its president tried very hard to exert his influence and wanting to be the Tai-Kor of Latino countries, but most of the Latinos don't give a damn. Like it or not, most Latino countries still look up to the United Steaks of America (USA). Empty political slogans don't fill hungry stomachs, but juicy steaks do. So the “Huge-Ego” president from the Little Venice got annoyed, he took offense of USA's influences on most of the South American countries. He went on a cartoon strips diplomatic offensive against USA. He gestured the USA's president as ape, but befriended the monkeys to seek international support for his lost pride. But the USA also don't give a damn of him. Oooop, that hurts !

Out of frustrations, he fantasized invasions from the USA. He ordered hundreds of snipers to be positioned at various buildings awaiting the invasion of the mighty USA armies. He rallied his country men to fight the USA. But the problem is, his mostly urbanized countrymen don't give a damn. And the USA don't bother to respond to his joke. So, his fantasy can not come true and his faked war cries did not incite hatreds of USA. Ooop, that hurts again !

So, what is the “Huge-Ego” going to do next to seek international attention and domestic popularity ? Wait, wait, wait.... he has another trick up his sleeve. He is going to cook the world's biggest cauldron of stew, in another word, the world's biggest pot of chicken soup. So huge that, the poors will gather around the big pot to sing and spread words of praises for him. Well, dream on, your lordship !

So, on September 14th, 2007, in the auspicious occasion of the Hindu's Lord Ganesha's birthday, he tried to outdo the Mexican's Guinness Record of 5300 litres of spicy soup with the claimed 15,000 litres of “Bolivarian” stew in a one quarter emptied 20,490 litre pot. They did claimed that the huge pot of soup was enough to feed 60,000 to 70,000 people. According to them, the soup contained 3000 kg of chicken, 2000 kg of beef, and tonnes of legumes and vegetables.

Standing next to the big pot of supposedly world's biggest pot of soup, they admitted to the reporters that the government is having problems managing essential staples like milk and eggs. He blamed the “world problem” for the short supply. It is all other people's faults, isn't it ?

But the problem is, the Guinness World's Records don't give a damn about the Big Pot Of Stew. So, the Mexican still hold the world's record for having once served the world's biggest pot of soup. Too bad, too bad, another publicity attempt to seek world's recognition had gone unrecognized.

Sometimes I do wonder, if a government can't even managed simple supply and demand equation of milks and eggs for its people, what makes them think that they have the decency and morality to seek international recognition of their unwelcome views and opinions ? It would make more sense if these politicians can spend more time seducing the chickens in the countryside to lay more eggs, and caressing the cows' breast to produce more milk. Mr Hugh Ego, please mind your own business in your own country. 頭小不要想戴大帽. In another word, refrained from wearing a big hat when you have a small head. The world is not your stage ! Third world's mentalities seeking First world's acceptance ? The world is not sensitive to your needs ? Well, somebody once said, “you can fooled some people all the times, all people some of the times, But, you will never fooled all the people all the times”

Honestly, no insensitivity intended. Occasionally, I do have misguided strong opinions on various issues. My apology if my comments offended some people's insensitivity. But these are my frank opinions and observations. This world is full of dangerously sicked people trying their level best to make this world a difficult place for humanity. I shake my head........ May God bless those lost and misguide souls to have some basic sanity.......

Nevermind, on this glorious Sunday, let us all now sing this beautiful Christian songs - Amazing Grace. Let's all forgive and be forgiven !

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Saturday's reflections

I remembered, my father used to tell me that, at the age 20's you have to looked handsome, at the age of 30's, you have to be strong and healthy, at the age of 40's, you have to established your financial wealths, at the age of 50's you must have wisdom, at the age of 60's and beyond, you must acquired spirituality to live the remaining life fruitfully. Now, if you missed those milestones, you can forget about life ! Is life that simple ?

Looking back, the journey of life is like ball rolling along an infinite possibilities. Since childhood, we had been to many places that shaped our outlook and our expectation. But, at the end of the day, the rolling ball has to stop, and there shall be transformation of energies from one state to another. When would that day be ? W do not know, man proposes, but God disposes.

I seeked not a life of luxuries and perfections, and I seeked not fame or popularity, all I ever want is, a contented life of practicalities and adaptabilities. I also believe, in respecting others, I learned of self respect. In appreciating others, I learned my self worth. In reciprocating intentions, I learned self defense. In loving others, I learned to love myself. I seeked not to interfere in other people's life styles, but I expect others not to intrude into mine. I will not initiate ill intents on others, but I will not take it lightly if others have ill intentions on me. I have this simple reciprocating principle of 英雄绝不先犯人,若有来犯绝不放. 人心换人心,八两换半斤. These are my basic philosophy of life.

While I do not have control on the certainty of life span, I believe I do have control over the journey to that finite destination of so called God's paradise. Consciously or unconsciously, I am the author of my fate and destiny. This journey of life, whether it is eventful, dull, exciting, sad, happy, etc., it actually depend on how I scripted it to be. It all depends on how I react to my surroundings, making adaptive changes, and learn from the experiences. I do made occasional mistakes in life, but I shall pick up the pieces and move on with life. I do want to live a life respectful to the environment, earn a living through honest career, be mindful of the friends I have, and be generous to people who helped me along life's journey.

There are times Life accords me unfairness and bitterness, but I am also blessed to be able to recover from life's adversaries, learned to adapt, and overcame the adversaries. In going through life adversaries, I am enlightened to appreciate the values of life enriched with experiences and knowledges. I will try my best forgive and forget the wrongs that had been done on me, I know, to hate or to let bad experiences linger on will be, an unnecessarily anxiety, that serve no benefits to me. Between anxieties and happiness, I would prefer the seed of happiness to germinate in my mind and hearts.

I do have my occasional unhappy and sad moments, I will try my best not display my unhappy emotions to others. It is easy to express my sad or unhappy emotions through my facials expressions, or verbal communications to others. But I will not be that selfish to burden others into sharing my state of unhappiness. I am what I am, a man enlightened with capabilities to resolve my emotional states of affairs.

All of us want to be happy in life. But, what is happiness ? I realized, happiness is also a state of mind, it has nothing to do with financial wealth, age, or where we live. To realized happiness, I do not need to work like a dog to raise my financial wealth, all I need to do is to lower my expectation, be contented with what I already have, live life as it is, and not to unduly worry too much about the future.

This journey of life, I have encountered various difficulties and obstacles, and I believed, there will be more to come. For better or for worst, life must go on. To move on, I will have even greater passions to look life straight into the eyes, and have greater determinations to confront and overcome. I may grow old and my body functions may degenerates, but my passions and philosophy of life shall be forever young to set a good example to my children to cherish and scale greater heights in their lives.

Life goes on............

World’s greatest nose job !

The Chinese are at it again !

..Stunt performer Wang Chuntai pulls four people in a minicar with a rope attached to his nose on a street in Haikou, South China's Hainan Province, September 13, 2007. He pulled the car nearly 10 meters in 10 seconds.

With a decade of economic success, the Chinese are seemed to be quite pre-occupied with the strongest, the longest, the tallest, etc. It does remind me of our past decade of Malaysia Bolihism. Well, what have we achieved ? Nothing. But I do get the funny feelings that we are like clowns trying to entertain the world.

Well, what else are the Chinese not capable of ? With more than 1.3 billion people, some of them are bound to be extraordinary. So, don’t underestimate the Chinese. They are good !

Rosh Hashanah

Today, September 13th 2007, is the Jewish new year. As a Buddhist, I must admit, I had been very ignorance of others’ religion celebrations. Believe it or not, I did not know Jewish’s new year is called Rosh Hashanah until today. My sincere apology to my fellow humans on the other part of the world for my lack of religious knowledge. To all Israelis, I sincerely wish all of you a year of health, success, prosperity, and fulfillment.

May the tears of the past soften the hearts of the future to love and be loved. May the hands that kill be the hands that heal. May God bless the peace makers and banish war makers to hell. May the guns and bullets be forever rested, and may your country have everlasting peace with your neighboring countries.

The following is a brief description of Rosh Hashanah from the web site Jewish Festivals and Days of Remembrance in Israel :

---- Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Jewish new year. Its origin is Biblical (Lev. 23:23-25): “a sacred occasion commemorated with loud blasts [of the shofar, the ram’s horn].” The term Rosh Hashanah, “beginning of the year,” is rabbinical, as are the formidable themes of the festival: repentance, preparation for the day of Divine judgment, and prayer for a fruitful year. The two-day festival falls on 1-2 Tishrei in the Jewish calendar, usually September in the Gregorian calendar, and starts at sundown of the preceding evening, as do all Jewish observances. Major customs of Rosh Hashanah include the sounding of the shofar in the middle of a lengthy synagogue service that focuses on the festival themes, and elaborate meals at home to inaugurate the new year. The prayer liturgy is augmented with prayers of repentance. In many senses, Israel begins its year on Rosh Hashanah. Government correspondence, newspapers and most broadcasts carry the “Jewish date” first. Felicitations for the new year are generally tendered before Rosh Hashanah. ----

May this year Rosh Hashanah be the beginning of everlasting peace and tolerance for mankind. May all of us repent and pledge not to repeat our wrong doings. God, let there be peace among fellow human beings.



I thought the day will never come.
In that unforgettable evening,
You took that lonely journey
God laid for you,
to the beautiful garden of eternity.
In that unforgettable evening,
God set you free,
you found eternal peace.
Your sufferings and hardships cease.

Your time seemed too brief.
But, the love you gave us
shall forever lives in our hearts.
We remember your kind deeds and sacrifices.
Your smiles and kindness
shall forever glows in our hearts.

You put our needs above yourself.
You gave your youth and everything you have,
unconditionally and with devotion.
We took your love for granted,
but you said, it is a privilege
to provide all you have for your children,
and see them through life's uncertainties.

There are times,
I saw you weeping in despairs
in a quiet corner
in the middle of the night,
you said, son, go to sleep,
when you grow up,
you will understand,
life is,
sometimes an uphill and unkind battle.
Tomorrow will be better,
life must go on....

The love from your heart,
the warm of your touch,
and your ever forgiving heart.
How can I repay ? How can I forget ?
If only I could, I'd surely bring you
the fruits of your labour,
the success stories of your loved one.
I wish to see,
your face beaming
with happiness and prides again,
one more time.
to hold on to your memories,
forever 'till the end of time.

I had never thank you
for all that you had done for me.
I had never expressed my gratitude
for your unselfish love and kindness.
In remembering you, I hope you know,
I loved and appreciated you all these while.
I know, each time I think of you,
you are right here in my heart.

Harapkan pagar, pagar yang makan padi

Bruce Almighty !!! I am amazed by the following short news article published in New Straits Times on September 11 2007. Perhaps, times must be very bad to the extend that, even policeman resort to work part time as snatch thief to earn extra income. It was also reported in The Star that, the 27 years old police man, married with a 4 month old baby, resorted to crime because he desperately needed money to treat his ailing mother. For whatever reasons that he may used to justify for his criminal actions. The karma is such, 上得山多終遇虎. ( If you go up to the mountain too often, you will eventually encounter the ferocious tiger)

No law enforcer in his right mind will resort to breaking the law to make some extra quick bucks. Is the police force recruiting wrong sort of people to serve the people ? Could it be that our police personnel are not paid sufficiently, resulting in some of them resorting to other means of criminal incomes ? Whatever it is, a young police man career has been destroyed for his momentary lack of judgement. Increasingly, our confidence in the integrity of the police force to maintain laws and orders are beginning to wane.

Dear beloved political leaders, please take good care of our policemen financially. They risk their lives everyday to serve and to protect. If we can pay RM 200 – RM 300 for 4 pieces of Philip screws, I am sure we can pay our police personnel better to prevent some of them from straying into robbing the people they are supposed to protect. However, I still believed in the integrity of the police force, it is not fair to judge the credibility of the whole police force simply because a few of them misbehaved, 樹大有枯枝,族大有乞兒. (Big trees always have a few wilted branches and a large clan always have a few beggars)

上梁不正下梁歪 (When the apex of the hierarchy of power is corrupt and immoral, don't expect the downliners to be righteous) Harapkan pagar, pagar yang makan padi !

Snatch thief a policeman
New Straits Times
September 11, 2007

IPOH: When a group of men caught a snatch thief and handed him to the police, they were in for a shock — the thief was a policeman. The man had snatched a handbag from a housewife at a coffee shop in Taman Ipoh Selatan. Her screams prompted some members of the public to give chase. After catching him, they dragged him to the police station. On checking his identification, the policemen there realized he was one of their own. Perak police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah confirmed that the suspect was a policeman but declined comment, adding that police would investigate.

An incredible blow job .......

According to a news report by Xiaoxiang Morning Post ( 潇湘晨报 ), a 52 years old Chinese man, Zhang Zhenghui (张正辉 ), managed to blow up a hot water bottle with his nose in just two minutes. He performed the feat on 5th September 2007 in front of a Supermarket in Liling (醴陵) City. He also performed the feat of blowing up the inner tube of a truck tyre in 8 to 9 minutes at the same venue. Zhang said it took him 3 years to perfect the feat. Zhang had also previously broke the record of wearing a pair of iron shoes weighing more than 100 kilograms. He is planning to obtained Guinness World's record recognition for his new found ability with his nose. Read 2分钟,鼻子吹爆热水袋 -曾经的“铁鞋王”,如今有了新绝活.

One piece of advise, don't stand in front of him when he sneeze. He may sneeze you away if you stand in his sneezy way. And, remember, please do not irritate him, with his strong leg muscles, he can also kick your #@!% with ease....

The Chinese had been claiming Guinness World's records one after another. With 1.3 billion people, the Chinese are not only hardworking and talented, but also extraordinary. Now, even a blow job qualifies for consideration into the world's records. Not just any blow job, a Chinese blow job using the nose. Can you match that, ladies ? 棒, 棒, 棒, 非常棒. Ichiban leh ?

It's a dog life

The Majlis Perbandaran Selayang ( Selayang Municipal Council ) recently made an announcement on its website for a unique dog-catching competition. Prices ranging from RM1,000 to RM 15,000 are offered to Resident Committees within the council's jurisdiction. Well, well, there seemed to be a lot of “dog bashing” and actions taken against dogs by various town and municipal council all these while.

The announcement drew criticism from pet lovers and some NGO organizations. Personally speaking, I accept the fact that, stray animals are at times, create unbearable and irritating nuisances. I find it difficult to comprehend why the pet lovers and NGO's are against this unique initiative of the Selayang Municipal Council. The fact of the matter is, the competition is aimed at reducing the number of stray dogs, and the council also stated very clearly that the stray dogs must be captured alive in compliance with its various bylaws.

If we can allowed monkey to be captured and sold for export revenues, why are we so objectionable to humane capturing of stray dogs for better management thereafter ? It is easy for pet lovers to protest the initiative, but again, if the pet lovers are responsible and caring in the first place, they should not have allowed their pets to become strayed in the street. Perhaps, to ease the fear of NGO such as Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), Petpositive, Malaysian Animal Rights and Welfare Society, etc., the municipal council should provide documentary guideline and compliance on how the stray dogs will be handled once they are captured and handed over to the council. Maybe, Selayang Municipal Council can become the first council in Malaysia to train stray dogs to cripple pirated VCD rings.

Beside stray dogs, I personally encountered more problems coping with stray cats than stray dogs. The problems with stray cats are (1) indiscriminate dropping of smelly feces, (2) irritating noises in the middle of nights that disrupt sleeps, (3) unsightly and indiscriminate scavenging for foods, etc. Sincerely, I do hope the Selayang Municipal Council can extend the “dog catching” initiative to include also “Cat Catching”. It is beyond my comprehension that why all the various town councils are not taking the necessary action to also control the problems of stray cats. The stray cats are as much a nuisance as the stray dogs. Let's hope all the town and municipal councils can come up with effective and humane initiatives to deal with stray animals irregardless of whether it is a scobby-doo or pussy cat. Or perhaps, only the dogs are targeted because warm pussies are too irresistible to be caged ?

Ooh, pussycat pussycat, where have you been? I've been up to London to visit the Queen. Pussycat pussycat, what did you dare? I frightened a little mouse under her chair. MEOWW! “ Here goes, the pussycats have been decreed by the Queen of England to romp anywhere they like. So, Her Majesty's order is our command. Le's love the cats.....

Scobby-doo, don't feel so bad, here is a poem to cheer you up :

A Dogs Soul
(by unknown )

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad,
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgement carefully
Is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for
Himself, He cannot speak,
Rebuked, He finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.
He'll love, tho'he is unloved,
And he'll serve tho'badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he's abused.
Altho' his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!

Malaysian lawyer files US$4 trillion suit against Britain

I read with sadness ( very SAD and Embarrassed ) a news report in Taipei Times. The news article is regarding a Malaysian Lawyer filing a US$4 trillion suit against Britain. The suit seek USD 2 million compensation for each of the currently estimated 2 million Malaysian of Indian Origin. The suit claimed that, Indians were originally brought in by the British to work as indentured labourer in Malaysia prior to Malaysia’s independent. It further claimed British negligence and failure for not protecting the rights of future generations of the minority Indians in Malaysia. The suit also want the British court to declare Malaysia’ constitutions NULL and VOID. Read HERE for further details of the news report.

I am not a legal expert, but why filing the suit in British court ? Why are we still kowtowing to the British court ? Why not filing the suit in United Nations’ International Court or United Nations’ Human Rights Commissions ?

As a Malaysian, I do felt very sad that, after so many years of independence, we are still unable to identify ourselves as a single National Identity. We are still resorting to identify ourselves as Malay, Indian, Chinese, etc. to claim special rights and selfish interests.

I pray, one day in a not so distant future, our children can all be proud Malaysians enjoying equal rights irregardless of culture, race, religion, and ethnicity. Let’s us put oursleves in each other shoes to forster better understandings and tolerances. May the line that divide becomes our rally point to unite. May God grace all Malaysians with fair eyes, hearts, and souls to accept all Malaysians as Malaysians, respectful of human rights, and the decency to embrace non discriminatory practices.

Don;t pray, pray

Look who came for breakfast this morning, don't pray, pray.....

Where is your national flag ?

This year, the month long Hungry Ghosts Festival (Por Tor) coincided with the weeks of National Day Celebration. The Hungry Ghosts Festival is over, so is the Merdeka day celebrations. But I still see a lot of National Flags hoisted in all over the places. So, the remnants of National Flags hoisted in all over the old places gave me an impression that the “Por Tor” festivities is still not over yet.

The national flag is, by right, is a symbol of pride, hope, and honour. It should be hoisted at appropriate place with pride and dignity. But, during the month preceding the National Independent Day, I saw the National flags inappropriately hoisted on many places of insignificant. For example, I saw the National flags hoisted behind garbage trucks, at the road sides near the drains, on top of trees, on top of traffic signages and lamp posts, on top of car bonnets, on top of garbage dump, etc. I also saw worn out and dirty flag hoisted on top of business premises. I also saw doormat with the national flag design being placed at entrance to a business premise. The list of ignorant disrespect for the national flag can go on and on…..

I am one of those people who believed in appropriateness, and common sense dictates that, there are some places where the national flags should not be hoisted. Isn’t there any rules or codes governing the display of National Flag ? People like to show their patriotism with their creativity in displaying the national flag. But by disgracefully displaying the national flags with no regard for common sense is an act of ignorance. Disgraceful ignorance should not accepted as act of patriotism but an act of arrogant stupidity. Recently, a group of Malaysians felt sensitized and offended when a young Malaysian student sang “Negara ku ku” with the national flag behind. But nobody felt offended when the national flags were hoisted behind the smelly garbage trucks and all over the inappropriate places. We argued, freedom of expressions has its limit, but does the limit applies here ? Isn’t it equally disrespectful and disgraceful ?

During the week preceding Merdeka Day, I was approached by a young man selling the national flags. In his eagerness to sell the flag, he complained that he still have a lot of flags to be disposed off and told me that the price of our national flag is cheaper than a pack of cigarette. I am not very sure whether he implied a political statement or commercial desperation. My assumption is, to him, even the value of a pack of Dunhill is worth more than our national flag. When I asked him where should I hoist the flag, he told me “mana mana you suka” or “anywhere you like” ! I refused to buy the flag peddled by him out of respect for the national flag. I sincerely hope, this time next year, the government can distribute the national flag free of charge, and all other Malaysians should refrained from buying the Malaysian flags. It is degrading to knowingly allow our national flag being disrespectfully commercilized by peddlers.

We can distribute and asked the children to wave the national flag with pride. We can go around shaming car owners for not buying and fasten the national flag on their vehicles. We can issued directives to ask business premises to hoist the national flag. In fact, we can ignorantly accused people for not displaying national flag in the name of patriotism and love for the country. But do we understand the significance and the proper respect for the national flag ?

If we hoist the national flag on a pole, how many Malaysians will actually run to the pole and salute the flag with pride and honour ? I do ! Do I carry a National Flag ? Yes. I always do - in my heart and soul.

The Custom of Crying Marriage

A traditional matrimonial custom of China’s Sichuan Province

Source : Beijing International Travel Website

….According to elderly people, every bride had to cry at the wedding . Otherwise, the bride's neighbors would look down upon her as a poorly cultivated girl and she would become the laughingstock of the village. In fact, there were cases in which the bride was beaten by her mother for not crying at the wedding ceremony……… In west Sichuan Province, the custom is called "Zuo Tang (Sitting in the Hall)". Usually, the bride begins to cry a month before the wedding day. As the night falls, the bride walks inside the hall and weeps for about an hour. Ten days later, her mother joins her, crying together with her.; Another ten days later, the grandmother joins the daughter and mother, to cry together with them. The sisters and aunts of the bride, if she has any, also have to join the crying……..

Isn’t that marriage suppose to be an auspicious and happy affair ? Me still no comprehendo why the women need to do all these unnecessary and pretentious crying. Crying for social acceptance ? Crying to acknowledge that the future is fatalistic once the knot is tied ? Or was it to showcase to Beijing Olympic’s tourists the greatness of China’s glorious cultural heritage ? Although I find the custom interesting, but it simply doesn’t make sense to me why it is still being practice today. Not wanting to be culturally insensitive, but I still think this blind continuation of cultural absurdities is weird and inappropriate. This is 21st century, why regressed to the olden era and bounded by inappropriate and outdated custom ? Well, maybe crying babies can get the milk. But what do crying brides get ? spermatozoa ?

Mooncakes festival.

Now that the Hungry Ghosts festival is over, the Chinese all over the world are looking forward to celebrate another major cultural festival – the Mooncakes festival. The Three major festivals celebrated by the Chinese are Chinese New Year (春节), All Souls Day (清明节), and Mooncake festival. The mooncakes festival, also known as mid-autumn festival (中秋節), falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month in Chinese calendar. For, 2007, the festival falls on September 25th 2007. Traditionally, the moon on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month is the brightest of the year, the Chinese usually have open air gathering under moon lights to drink tea and eat special moon cakes (月餅) to foster closer relationship among family members and friends.

Mid-Autumn Festival does remind me of a beautiful poem by Su Si (蘇軾,蘇東坡). The poem was also popularized by Taiwanese singer, Teresa Deng in a song titled "Wishing We Live Forever" (但願人長久) in 1983. Ahhhh….. Mid Autumn festival, a time for reunion and a time to think of departed loved one. I wish I can ride the winds while chewing on my favorite mooncake…….

Managing angers with vindictive passions ?

Life, at times, is like a journey on a roller coaster with a bag full of emotional parameters. It has its peaks and valleys, as well as its fun and let-downs. Looking back, all of us had our fair share of emotional experiences, some are good, some are not so good, some we would like to forget, and some we would like it to linger on forever. Of all these emotionality, at times, I am amazed how I dealt with “angers”. I am stronger than I think !

What is anger ? I do not know how other people define anger. But to me, anger is usually an internally generated negative feelings instigated by other people. I know I am in a state of anger when I have a strong feelings of irritation, impatient, and a strong urge to locate and exterminate the source that cause these uneasy feelings. I have no problem dealing with anger itself because I manage how my angers are expressed, if and ever I do expressed it. Judging from past occurrences, it is not pleasant whenever my anger is manifested on people who triggered it. The positive thing about my so called negative emotion is, it usually doesn’t last long, and I am easily reconciled with the comfort feelings that the causes had been exterminated. I made quick decision to resolve the problem, usually by evicting the people who causes my anger out from my mind, and from my physical presence. I am in a way, seemed to acquired the ability to erase memories associated with those people from my mind, and instantly marginalized them as unwelcome strangers. No stress, and life goes on.

Expressions of my anger maybe unpleasant to others, but, as a civilized and educated person, I managed my emotion in order not to involve in physical aggressions or verbal confrontations. It is never my intention to let anger lingered in mind any longer than it should be. Life is too short to indulge in unproductive negative emotions. Anger is detrimental to my mental and physical well being, so I usually made quick decision to get even in other “civilized positive revenges”. I don’t get MAD, I get EVEN. Don’t blame me for my nastiness. In the first place, I did not ask for it, I am merely deflecting anger in other forms to the source. Bearing in mind that one is always heir of one's deeds. My actions are to make sure the fruits of one deeds is ripen in the shortest possible time for the instigators. I perceived this as the natural law of conservation of energies to defend my well beings. Funny thing is, I actually enjoy the process of deflecting back the energies associated with anger back to the source. At times, it is a great form of mental relaxations for me.

What constitute “civilized positive revenge” ? One thing for sure, I will never resort to physical violence, verbal noises, or any form of direct confrontations. I used indirect means of reciprocating to get even. In a way, I controlled my anger and plan my actions with achievable objectives within legal limits. Yes, I am a vindictive and poisonous man but I also believe in appropriate sense of justice, I made sure people who caused me emotional discomforts paid the penalty for their own misdeeds. I wish no malice towards any one and I mean no harms to others if other do no harms to me. I do not believe in being forgiving or being lenient in my actions, why should I allow myself to be in a position for abuses repeatedly ? Every action has a reaction. I have every right to control and direct that reaction in any which way I see fit to gleefully claim my redemption.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not hate people who caused me anger. To hate is a burden, and I am educated enough to know that, it is not worth the while to waste my precious time to hate insignificant people. But it is definitely worth the while to entertain myself with the process of my controlled reactions. My most practical strategy has always been, to make swift decision to eliminate causes of my anger immediately. If I am incapable to take immediate actions, I will write down what actions I will take in the future. After which, I erase those people from my memories, and move on with other productive ventures. No doubt, hate has always been an end product of anger, to counter these negative energies, I manifest sincere love to the enemies of those people who created angers in me, and let others do the works for me.

I am a Buddhist, I am also aware of the teaching that “"Not to do any evil, to cultivate good, to purify one's mind, this is the teaching of the Buddha". I would definitely want to be a good Buddhist. I sincerely do not think that reciprocal non-aggressive “positive revenge” is a bad deed. Simply put, it is acceptable to do unto others in a reciprocal and indirect way what others do unto me. I believe I am doing a good deeds by making sure ill intent people reaped what they sow. So, whenever I resolved my anger with my little “positive revenges”, I would usually sit in the quiet corner of my room or office to recite this prayer :

May all beings be free from harm and danger.
May all beings be free from mental sufferings.
May all beings be free from physical sufferings.
May all beings take care of themselves happily.
May all beings be well and happy.

I am a merely a practical human being trying to adapt to this increasingly insane world. At the end of the day, it really doesn’t bother me whether I become a nasty person or otherwise. I will let the environment nurtured the outcome. I may not be fully aware of my state of mind. But, I will do my level best to lead an ethical life, not to have ill intents on others, not to interfere with the life of others, and passionately defend my rights to live life as it is, as practical as possible, and as unpretentious as possible. I live for today with the hope that almighty take care of tomorrow for me.

I admit, I am a flawed man with my perverted and oxymoronic sense of justice. As much as I care for others, I need to take note that, I am responsible for myself, if I am wronged, it is my rights to direct actions to right the wrongs rationally without the attachment of emotions.

Be nice to me, I will be a benevolent man to you. But if you direct ill intents at me, I will not waster energies to get angry, I will make sure you suffer satanic consequences !!!!

Correctly politically incorrect observations….

According to a news report by The Sun, the Information Minister Datuk Zainuddin Maidin attacked The Sun for a second time during the launching Bernama's radio station, Radio24. Read HERE.

Reading throught the short news article, honestly, as a Malaysian, I do felt very sad and embarrased that, there are still so many insignificant Malaysians out there willing to stake Malaysia’s future with narrow minded and short term personal biases.

I find it challenging to comprehend the appropriateness of the Information Minister’s unhappiness. After all, what is so wrong with the concept of Malaysian Malaysia ? If I understnd it correctly, Malaysian Malaysia creates a single unifying nationality where every citizen is accorded equal rights and fair treatments. Of late, I also heard a lot about Bangsa Malaysia, various versions of verbal social contract, ketuanan this and that, and a lot of other political insinuations. Honestly, I know nothing about the political correctness of this political jargon and its implications, I live for today with the hope that the almighty will take care of tomorrow for me. He always does. Perhaps, to enlighten politically incompetent souls like me, the Information Minister should outline his definition of Malaysian Malaysia and which part of the definition is against the nation’s and his personal interest. I do hope, one day in a not so distant future, all Malaysians can come together as one, and work together as a single nationality to bring greater prosperity and wealth to our future generations irregardless of religion and racial origin. Isn’t this the vision of our founding fathers ? Isn’t this the ultimate objective of the much talk about social contract ?

With regards to non racial news reporting, I still can not comprehend what is so wrong with being non racial. Isn’t all newspaper suppose to have that integrity of impartialness ? Isn’t that every nation’s dream of eradicating racism and shame the racists into pariahism ? Let’s us not tempted to be a racial champion but end up as a moronic pariah.

The youths are pillars of Malaysia’s future. They are now more well educated as compared to 50 years ago. I do sincerely believe that more space should be given to them to express their views and to allow them to participate in the development of the nation’s political, economic, social, and technological landscapes. Of course, some youth may have very critical views of status quo, but that does not mean they are less patriotic or anti establishment. These youths are true patriots who are willing to stick their neck out in the greater interest of Malaysia. So, what is wrong with giving more space to our youth ?

With regards to being sympathetic to opposition parties’ view, Malaysia is a democratic country, all of us must be learned to have the basic respect for differing opinions expressed in civilized manners. It is part and parcel of the growing pains and democratic process of any nation. Let us all not encourage the unhealthy germination of an environment where distribution of, and access to information and opinions are loop sided. The opposition parties do have a role to play in the positive development of Malaysia. So, let’s be fair and give them some credible venues to state their agenda, and let us trust the maturity of Malaysian in deciding the credibility of the government’s and oppositions’ agenda during general elections.

What is wrong with relying on Internet and blogs for alternative news with different perspectives ? As an educated man, I do find some news sources from internet interesting and intellectually stimulating. And I sincerely would like to believe that some of the news sources from internet are more credible than our local main stream media. We do not have the moral authority to measure these sources’ credibility with biased yardsticks, and should rightly refrained from telling others what are good and what are not good for them. Our preferences for crediility of news sources are based on our personal choices and inclinations. So, no matter how righteous we want to be perceived, we need to respect the rights of individuals, and let those individuals to decide for themselves what are credible, and what are not credible.

Be a patriot, love your country sincerely and passionately with all your hearts and souls. Help Malaysia to become technology savvy and information driven society. Seek not to control, limit, or discredit other sources of information, but facilitate the free flow of information with passions, accountability, and transparency.

Hidup Bangsa Malaysia !!!! Tuhan kurniakan, raja kita selamat bertakhta…..

Om Mani Pedme Hum.

Man, by nature, sexually incomprehensible ?

The other day, in a conversation regarding men, my wife jokingly made a comment that “ping chek mau ng sek yee ?”. Literally translated “Which cat refuse to eat fish ?” Her comment is in reference to man’s tendency to stray “sexually”. I guess in the eyes of women, men have been stereotyped to be of roving eyes and can not resist the temptations of beautiful women. Is that so ? I don’t know her insinuations. Maybe she is giving the hint that, even if I strayed, it is expected, because I am a man. So, is that the indirect green light for me to start sowing my wild seeds. And, if that happened, I should be forgiven because, after all, I am a man too weak to resist temptations ?

Not to long ago, I was having lunch in a restaurant, and overheard two well dressed middle age women’s conversations. Not that I intentionally eavesdropping into other people conversations, but I was unknowingly attracted to the two women’s topic of discussions about the men in their life. The first woman commented that, she made sure her husband is satisfied sexually every night. Her intention is to made her husband tired out so that he do not have the energy to get involve with other women. The other woman commented that, it doesn’t matter how tired a man is, as long as he can still stand up and walks on his two feet, he can still go out and fool around with other women that crossed his path.

Are men that hopelessly undernourished sexually to the extend that they will go after any attractive opposite sex that came along ? I am still struggling to compute this myth about men’s misplaced sexual energies. Why are there so much misconceptions by women with regards to the so called men lacked of self control for craving of conjugal sex ?

I don’t know about other men. In my younger days, I am indeed unnecessarily attracted to the “scent of women” to the extend that I do have crazy unrealized fantasies. But that was then. At my age now, coupled with work pressures and family commitments, I do occasionally felt that sex had became a chore. It has nothing to do with my hormonal level. After a hard day work, given the choice, I would rather have a cup of hot aromatic coffee, read a good book or watch a good video to relax my mind, sex is the last thing that cropped up in my mind. Having said that, I am not saying that I am no longer interested in sex. Of course, without doubt, a long stretch without sex will definitely drove me to crankiness. A good session of sex will definitely put some grins and smiles on my face and make my next day so much pleasurable. All I am saying is, sex is no longer a top priority chore for me, and I will definitely not wanting to waste my energies hunting around for different partner to have sex.

Like most men at my age, I accept the fact that I am no longer in the prime of my youth. I am following the natural order of mental evolution to move on and preoccupied my mind with other priorities of life. It is simply not a question of losing sex drive or declining libidos, but rather to respond and adapt to changing needs as we grow older to foster stronger and more fulfilling relationship with my chosen soul mate in particular, and to provide for the family in general. Honestly speaking, I am no longer concern with how many times a man must have sex in a week or months. I was told that, most women tends to have higher sexual drives than men, so in the process, they created the frequency quota on man which gave rise to unnecessary expectation and pressure to their partners. So when the man under perform sexually under pressure, the woman will start suspecting her partner depositing his wild seeds elsewhere or had been strayed.

So I guess it is a misconception and myth to state that men, by nature are sexually insatiated, easily strayed, lustful, or addicted to sex. Believe me, men by nature are not addicted to sex. They had seen it all, and they will definitely not wantonly jumping into bed with any woman that spread her legs. All men enjoy quality, not quantity, of sex. I am not so sure about all the women in this department. But one thing for sure, men are more reserved when come to sexual partners, they would very much prefer to involve in quality sex with their own soul mates.

So, “ping chek mau ng sek yee” ? Without doubt, all cat love to eat fish. But with regards to men, they are less adventurous, they preferred the same type of fish. Because, men do worry about getting choked with fish bones in their throats, or eating fishes contaminated with E Coli, if they devour unfamiliar fishes ! So to all women out there, don’t worry too much about your men savoring other fishes elsewhere. Just make sure the fish at home is healthy, clean, properly deboned, well cooked, came with occasional surprises, served with occasional pleasing presentations, and made sure the fish is tender and juicy.
