Bahasa Standard (?)

I am seriously distracted over some men around my working place with very, very thick southern accent. Sounds like a buffoon with their jaw too big for their mouth. Bercakap macam gigi bawah ke depan. (cuba u guys try tengok bunyi mcm mana)

huh. Macam lidah tu straight macam papan anjal acara diving olimpik. tak boleh bengkok langsung nk sebut perkataan-perkataan tu bg bunyi standard. mcm segala lidah, jaw, muka cramp pun ada. Now they look pretty darn stupid in my head now.

Abg kater pun tak cakap mcm tu. drama2 dlm tv or malay movies actors pun tak bercakap mcm tu. huh.

ntah hapa-hapa. buffoon. stupido.

Bubbles trip to UTP

Took Bewls to visit Siti and Belle at UTP.










Well, it was upon Siti's request actually. The cat was frightened all the way. Luckily she did not exactly panic throughout the 2.5hr journey. There were moments when she was meow-ing loudly in the car and there were a couple of times when she fell asleep from the tiresome panicking meow-ing. kesian sungguh.






We stopped at the Bukit Merah/Gng Semanggol rest area for brunch, breakfast cum lunch or vice versa. Too many people, we just tapau and ate in the car. Bewls had her meal also. Warm milk and kitty crackers.

Arrived in UTP 1.5hrs later, picked up both girls and here's where the interesting thing happened. Despite our attempt at pausing the journey at Taiping exit and place bubbles in her kitty litter box, she was still too panicked to give it a go, I guess. So, just as we started our journey ...**to be continued**

Congratulations to Tasha and Nazri !

On the arrival of baby girl, Indah Nur Dahlia on Saturday, 24th January 10.14am.


Proud daddy..

Delivery was smooth, other than sleepless night, lucky Tasha did not experience a long contraction pain. Both mom and baby appeared to be healthy but there is a problem with the baby condition. Absorbed her own toxins in the womb although baby was due overdue on 25th. Attending staffs at Hi-Tech hospital are currently attending to baby Indah's care. Condition is stable at the moment.

Quickly come home !!


Tommy Hilfiger racist remarks

I think most of us have received an email with below content,

"Oprah's interview and Tommy Hilfiger Good for Oprah!!!! I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of The Oprah Winfrey show where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if the statements about race he was accused of saying were true.

Statements like"... if I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jews and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice. I wish these people would NOT buy my clothes, as they are made for upper class white people."

His answer to Oprah was a simple, "YES". Where after she immediately asked him to leave her show."

Apparently, this is a Big Fat Lie untrue. Oh my, internet can be very mean at times.

OPRAH WINFREY 1999 STATEMENT
I've Never Even Met Tommy Hilfiger
"The rumor claims that clothing designer Tommy Hilfiger came on this show and made racist remarks, and that I then kicked him out. I just want to say that it is not true because it just never happened."
So, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are both nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress in a leading role for the 81st Annual Academy Awards. How kewl is that.

In fact, both movies are co-nominated in 2 other categories,
  • Best Art Direction
  • Best Cinematography

Not to mention, the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is nominated in 13 out of 18 related categories including best actor and best film, after taking out the unrelated ones such as animation, short stories, foreign language film and the likes categories.


I have watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on dvd some few weeks ago. Personally, I like the movie. Not sure if I loved it, but I like it that's for sure. Based on a short story, it's a story of someone who was born an old man and aged backwards. It may not make sense but what I like about it is, it tries to rationalize the 'what if' factor into our normal lives. What if, someone was really aging backwards and how does he adapt in our normal lives. That is basically what the story is all about, and the people he met and the different generations in his life. Now, I can finally say that I love the movie.



I am still finding the right time to watch The Changeling. Currently in cinemas. Sort of a thriller and I think I'm going to enjoy it very well.








I'm really glad that there are such good movies for the mind now that winter is ending.



Now, is anyone finally getting tired of this next door loser?


Personally, she's just another high school bimbo whom I'd just wish never to be my neighbour.

Trying to come up with attention every now and then. Appearing in Oprah every now and then. Break up and make up with John Meyer (yang tak best tera mana pun) every now and then. Lashing cheap remarks on her ex and his partner and family every now and then making headlines on entertainment magazines.

Just what is she trying to justify from her loser life? The magazines only wrote about she losing weight, her new hairstyle, non box-office movies which I found very lame, on and off relationships and those lashing remarks but I revolted to the idea of buying any of those magazines with her story on the main page or cheap pirated dvds of Friends. I mean, yellow?! A blind man reading a brailled magazine can see that this woman just needs to lay off, accept the fact that she trying too hard to be a somebody and meditate!


Heck, Anne Hathaway is much, much, much more hot and interesting. Started off as the ugly geek in The Princess Diaries and transformed in a no non-sense way to a hot supermodel look in The Devil Wears Prada. She gets the good roles now. Opposite Kate Hudson, the leading lady in romantic comedies.




And what movies this Jennifer Aniston is categorized in? I bet, mati hidup semula pon, the lame Jennifer Aniston will never potray Hathaway's character in The Princess Diaries. The more I see it, Aniston is really like the plain lame 'it' girl, Kelly, from Beverly Hills 90210. Living the the shadows of the sitcom and her famous ex. What else can she offer I wonder.

Welcome to your new home, bubbles !



There she was in my living room, the moment I put the cage down and opened the door.


Slowly, carefully, inspecting the whole house..















That was on the 13th of January 2009, 7 months old, that makes her birthday, 13th June 2008. Gemini after all.

Today, she's comfy and playful and witty and very passionate indeed.

Introducing....bubbles !

I've always longed for, crazy about, almost to die for, having a pet cat. I spent a few months considering either a female or male cat that would cause me less hassle.

  • male cats more affectionate than female cats.
  • male cats have more beautiful fur than female cats (this is always the case with animals)
  • male cats urinate everywhere! i don't fancy having that smell on my house, my clothes and everything. No, kasi is not and option. Berdosa lah. Sin.
  • female cats means more kittens before i know it.
yada..yada..yada..

Definitely i am looking for a persian, not the one with the smack in the face. My experience with them is, they're brilliant. They amuse you. Witty, smart. I'm crazy about them.

Of course there is the 'keeping with the cleanliness' issue. Their furs, their smell, poos, pees and everything...

I was indecisive for half a year.

Until, last 3 weekends. I have never been so sure. I was looking for cats/kittens high and low, in kulim, in penang, in Butterworth. Apparently, there was a 'shortage' of kittens/cats of my preference supply almost everywhere. The ones available are of some special breeds that cost from 800Rm-1500Rm per sekor. Now that is too much. Couldn't find any suitable kitty for me. I went to work on Monday feeling frustrated.

So, I was on 'mc-leave' on Tuesday. Noon came, lifted my ass for lunch with the girls. After that, went straight to Proton service centre to register for 3rd rear seatbelt. Stopped by at Nissan to check on Latio Sport's quotation. Too expensive, 10% downpayment is still a 1000Rm monthly instalments. Crazy. My house in 1000Rm/mth!

Then I went straight to the pet shop in Tmn Selasih, utk sekian kalinya. Auntie was there, she was not around for the whole weekend when I was there. She's quite a talker and she's been patient with me and my taste. Of couse, customer..

So she was suggesting this kitty, tho not the size of a kitty anymore, but she's just 7 months old. I've seen her last month in Dec, thought it was a male cat. Well built, soft beautiful wavy shades of orange fur. Held her in my arms and fell for her instantly. She fits the criteria, tho 2 months older.



Immediately arranged for payments and other necessary items deemed as 'free' gifts.
Within minutes, there we were, in my car with my kitty in the backseat in her cage, meowing all the way to my house.

The boycott

So much about the hu-ha on boycotting US products. Calls have been made by Tun Dr Mahathir and fellow friends via e-mails and sms-es.

So, am I boycotting?

YES, I am.

Tho' there are those who think that our number will not make any difference, i guess they have forgotten about the power of consumers. Consumers bring US up and we can bring them down too. Those who think otherwise have also forgotten of the power of communication via internet. Remember how there was a hu-ha last time on Gardenia-pork issues? There's not a single shop that sells Gardenia bread in langkawi. I am not sure if this is an impact from the e-mailing or not but heck some big electronic companies in Kulim Hi-Tech Park do not have Gardenia supplied by their canteen/cafe vendors. Think about it.

It does not matter if you are muslims or nons. This already is a humanity issue. This is a humanity violation. Where is our humanity?

And to all muslims out there, for each meal you have in starbucks, McDonald's and the likes, imagine the percentage that goes to the donation of Israeli funds. These are the fundings that are used to buy and develop weapons of 'mass destructions' used against our fellow muslims. There are billions of muslims in the world. More than budhists and jews and hindus, but why are we not united? The small number of jews can cause such mass destruction on humanity. WHY CAN'T WE UNITE? Because of the pessimists who do not believe, keep on thinking, saying, stressing with pride that it is impossible. Is anything really impossible? Really.

Nevertheless, where is your responsibilities on humanities and people's rights to live? Much ado about them muslims throwing stones, glasses and materials compare to Phosphorus and Uranium bombs by the Israelis. How many Israelis killed compare to the Muslims? Much ado about the nukes in the North Korea. Who is using Uranium now?

It it not a matter of bringing US down. We know what can happen to us if their economy is hit. The point is, we should show them that we bring you up, we can bring you down, you better not mess around.
