God is fair....

The Chinese (China-ese) can't pronounce Ryan Giggs properly...(giggle...giggle...) they called him, "Lion Gigger" ....

ahahahahhahahahahha!

That gave a really different meaning. I can't think or imagine what other words would be..shees...mainly because i don't speak their language.

giggle...giggle....

When I say God is being fair, I meant, China is fast becoming an economic giant in today's world. Around 5 or 6 years back, many multinational companies (MNC) shift their investments in Malaysia and moved to China, where, as we know the labour costs is cheaper and with proper quality control, they'd produce the same quality as they do in Malaysia.

A few years after than, even the Chinese starts investing out of their country..in simple word, it means, they are rich, have done enough investment in their own country, and ready to venture out. If I am not mistaken, we borrowed money from them Chinese for either the Penang Bridge expansion or the second bridge. Correct me if I'm wrong.

However, considering Singapore's labour costs is as high as many 1st world countries, Malaysia is still the destination of choice for foreign companies investments over China, due to the fact that English is our second language. Unlike the China-ese, we pronounce, Ryan Giggs, as it is. Phew. Imagined if there is no communication barrier between the China-ese and foreign investors. What will be left of us? God is fair.

Now that we are seeing it that way, isn't it ironic that we are controversially 'moving backward' by teaching those crucial subjects, Science stream subjects and Mathematics in Bahasa instead of English?

Seriously, my parents were educated in an English medium schools back in the 60s, not only that I am thankful for that as we were introduced to this language at an early age, but it is also about self empowerment of having to master more than one language. In fact, if you asked me, I think every student should learn Tamil and Mandarin in schools. Seriously, why not?

And as a matter of fact, my parents and my family are more malay than those who make such a big fuss about teaching these subjects in English. We know our history, we speak malay, we eat with our hands, we have tea with banana/jackfruit/potatoe fritters but no such thing as hi-tea with cakes and puffs and we can definitely curse in malay.

Bahasa Malaysia is a Bahasa Kebangsaan, we have made it compulsory to further our studies in higher education by passing with highest marks in written and oral exams. But speaking of moving forward, English is the worldwide communication language, where books, reference items, conventions are made widely available in this language. We want to move forward!

Or...there is a 'conspiracy' to make certain people rich by granting these certain people with the translation or printing rights of text books and reference materials into Bahasa?

Hm, one may never know.

I have heard of a story of a certain individual who were granted the rights to import and distribute african coffee beans to the local market and made a fortune out of it. Of course he could if he were the only or among a few individuals with the 'AP' certificates.

bugger.

World of sports that i care about 2009

A lot going on, i have to write something for me to remember in the future..I have been flipping the sports section more than the front pages...like many others, i am sick with the political scene and dramas in the country. Sporting events make more sense.


F1 scene :

1. Ferrari - Driver Filipe Massa(1st runner up 2008 champion behind Lewis Hamilton) was injured. details. The funny thing is, they have to call back on Michael Schumacher to replace him. The former champion retired in 2006. Tho I've never seen this before but I'm kinda excited. haha

2. Honda - no more in 2009 race. They pull out of the racing scene due to the economic recession. The manager, Ross Brawn baught the team and rename it to Brawn GP. Honda former main driver now Brawn's, Jenson Button, I don't know, somehow, the situation struck something in him and he went on to win 6 championship races out of 10 races so far this year, looks like he was playing the fool during the previous years championships.

3. News as of today...BWM is pulling out of the race after the 2009 season is over...and rumour is saying that the next team will be TOYOTA...

Tennis :

1. Wimbledon final !! Roger Federer vs Andy Roddick...what an epic..God, the anticipation was killing me. They played up to the maximum sets of tennis, and Fed could not, and i mean, just could not break Rod's servis. And when he finally did, he won it at a record of the longest set ever for men's championship, 16-14. The tournament marked his WTA spot back to no1, passing Nadal and most of all, his 15th grand slam win, passing the 14 grand slam titles mark he just shared with Pete Sampras after the French open 2009. Yesterday NST, Pete was saying, he thought he had set a record whom he thought he would never see anyone breaking, but alas, records are made to be broken. It did 7 yrs after that. There's still another grand slam to come, US Open.

2. Nadal was injured, excluded himself from the French and Wimbledon Opens. Expected to return for US Open, Aug 31st-Sept 13th.

3. Tho winning 2 grand slams this 2009 season (Aus and Wimbledon), Serena Williams still is not able to grab the WTA no 1 spot from Dinara Safina, who still is the no 1 without winning any grand slams so far. I find this weird. I am intrigued with their judgement. In fact, Serena is too.

Football

where can i begin...

1. Man U lost to Barcelona in my they-played-like-a-bunch-of-monkeys thread.

2. Christiano Ronaldo moved from Man U to Real Madrid with a world record transfer of 80mil pound..crazy people. He is a Nike ambassador but Real is endorsed with Adidas. That should be interesting. Man U did not 'buy' anyone significant but 'hired' Owen who was clubless after the end of last season. Manchester City is on a spending spree...Liverpool, Chealsea and Arsenal are saying that without Ronaldo, they now have a definite chance at the premier league...(he is that good...)

I am definitely anticipating the new season in August.


I would love to follow NBAs but it's on weekday mornings...12hours different from here to New York dats why.

Any other sporting events worth to follow?

Cute infidelity (?)

Escape the Pina Colada song
Rupert Holmes

I was tired of my lady, we'd been together too long.
Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song.
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed.
And in the personals column, there was this letter I read:

"If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
I'm the lady you've looked for, write to me, and escape."

I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean.
But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine.
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad.
And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half-bad.

"Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape."

So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place.
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face.
It was my own lovely lady, and she said, "Oh, it's you."
And we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew"..

"That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."

"If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."

kalau dah hippie tu hippie jugak...

Afternoon Delight
The Starland Vocal Band

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
gonna grab some afternoon delight.
My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
looking forward to a little afternoon delight.
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
and the thought of rubbin' you is getting so exciting.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
a little afternoon delight.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Please be waiting for me baby when I come around.
We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.


seriously, anyone can sing this song...anytime..easy listening...driving...walking...

"okay, kids, let's gather around the campfire and sing the song to the guitar"

mampus!
i have been using the alat penjimatan for almost a month now...can't wait to see the effect on my electricity bill..

never before have i been so eager waiting for a bill..

boleh jadi tag line nie..
Once in a while you'd meet people who annoy you so much. They'd try to bring you down to the low level of their point of view with their words and actions.

Don't fall for the vibration of whatever sad problem they have with their lives.

It isn't your problem.

Pain on left side of chest when I inhale...

When I inhale, I have a sharp pain on the right side of my chest. The pain dissapears once I have stopped inhaling (no pain whilst holding breath), and doesn't reappear upon exhaling. Maybe my ribs are bruised on my right side? I don't know. Want to know if it warrents a doctor's visit or if normal. Thank you anyone that answers!

I have this same problem (but on my left side). I was told that I have 'sticky lung'; I can't remember the official (real) diagnosis but my doctor basically just told me that I naturally have a more mucus-rich makeup of my lungs. Basically, the two walls of the lungs are touching one another. He told me to breath deeply 4 or 5 times in a row to separate them. It works and has lessened over the years.

(i guess it's a) phews !




uhh...what's that term that House mentioned about those who self-diagnose themselves from the internet again?

One by one..

First, it was Michael Jackson..then Farrah Fawcett...then latest of not 2 hours ago, Yasmin Ahmad, passed away at 11.25pm. She had suffered a stroke attack and bleeding in her brain on Thursday afternoon, 23 July 09, and had been on a critical condition since then. I am not sure if she ever regained her conscious ever since.

That's a short report.

hmm...

shocking...scary..

we have heard of her controversial movies but we have never heard of her being sick before. the last post on her blog was on 22 July 09,

i guess it will never be visible...

Truly we belong to Allah and truly to Him shall we return.
(Inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rojioun)

I have never made fun of other people's physical to make me feel good about my own physical in comparison. With reference to those physical attributes packaged on your body from God, those that you are not able to change.

I have never kutuk mata sapa2 sepet with comparison to mine yg bulat and cantek ka.
I have never never kutuk chests sapa2 yang flat with comparison to mine as the ultimate size ka.
I have never duduk saja2 and kutuk sapa2 bodoh and i lagi pandai. I kutuk men pun based on what they do. I don't kutuk good men and there are good men around me.


Then, I just don't understand why there are people who would make fun and compare of other people being in the shorter group with them being tall and i assume, the message they are trying to give is, being taller is not as pathetic as being as short as these shorties or else, what's with the group pendek vs group tinggi kan. Well, i came up with group 20's vs group 30's ok!! I never came up with group SPM 6 aggregates vs SPM 60 aggregates. Get my point ?!

This is a very immature high school low class joke. Uncalled for. Uncalled for!

If the rest of the shorties would take it as a joke, well I don't !!

You do not make fun of other people's physical and then puji2 hampa punya group bertuah tak jadi mcm those people.

This is moral values we are talking about.
dalam bahasa yang mudah untuk difahami...

yang baik itu datangnya daripada Allah
yang buruk datang daripada kelemahan saya sendiri (sdn bhd is what i would use referring to this)


one of the famous quotes that we often heard.

now, looking from a-nother point of view, gemuk tu sdn bhd. rambut kerinting tak terurus tu sdn bhd. kurus sgt tu sdn bhd (ya, ya...special cases applicable). yang badan busuk tu pun sdn bhd. yang besaq kepala (degil) tu pun sdn bhd. yang pendek fikiran or sekolah hujung tu pun sdb bhd. yang drive atas jln mcm orang bodoh tu pun sdn bhd.

I believe, all of us can differentiate these qualities.

tapi, yang tinggi, yang pendek, yang sepet, yang kepala besaq (bukan besaq kepala), yang tak boleh ubah tu, come from God.


i can accept if people make fun of my stupidity, because it is just me being goofy or bimbo. or if my breasts are too big or too small coz i know there are natural ways in term of excercises to change them. or my fat fingers. or my small but fat feet. or if i had bulu kening yang bercantum coz i think it is a must to 'merapikan' bulu kening yang bercantum tu. i can still accept if people say my teeth are unpretty or uneven because i can or should have definitely gotten a treatment, and i definitely have to accept if people make fun of my body odour. in fact i can make fun of my taste for big/fat and/or short gadgets...though it resembles a lot of me to other people, but my defense is it feels good to hold a big-short enough items in my fat fingers.

but making fun of God's creation is simply not fair. small eyes, narrow eyes, chinese eyes, flat chests, DD cups, i (hope i) hardly made fun of. yea, i came up with the size-9 joke, i silently regretted it and i have not came up with any elaborated jokes on that. in fact, that size-9 is not for display.

i could have made fun of the beautiful things of God's creation on other people as well. i tend to get carried away too sometimes.

oh heck. God is fair. Some may have nice high pointed nose but they may be covered in hard core freckles like the caucasians or they may hold funny/ugly language/accent or make nasal sounds. The one who always made fun of my height since i was very young may have a good body but tarnished with her rusty insides. I may be short but i have my assets. You may be taller than me and that is your asset but..


ah, suxx dan membosankan.

Tsk, sad thing is, I too may have enjoyed making fun of God's creation. Gotta becareful with that.

People with problems don't usually, or rather, most of the time, do not admit or better, do not accept the fact that they have problems.

Personally, the moment i admit or again, rather, accept the fact that I have a problem would mean that is it a sign of defeat. weakness. oh someone, please evaluate my ego level.

Nevertheless, it is a cliche after all. The first step to recovery is admitting that 'whatever the issue' is your problem.

Our local AKPK (Agensi Kounseling dan Pengurusan Kredit) debt management program rule of thumb is, admitting that you have a credit problem by cancelling all your credit cards and you will not be able to apply for any loans within the duration of recovery program. Gold cards, platinum...cut cut cut! There goes your image. pride. ego.

A more complex or detailed manner of acceptance is the Kubler-Ross model of five stages of grief,

Denial
Anger
Bargaining
Depression
Acceptance

which is a more dramatic aproach for something such as accepting that you have a problem of course because it is more towards, death and dying. let's not go there at the moment.

Nevertheless, it is about acceptance, acknowledge and respecting the sentiment.

And for all those bla bla blah....is actually an introduction of here I am acknowledging myself having a problem of which I called, my love-hate relationship with-money.

I have a love-hate relationship. and it's with money.

Thank you.

- may be elaborated when I am ready to talk about it.
It's very challenging. How can you be sure that you raised your kids right enough for him to not suddenly turn up gay when he grows up?

Pray, pray hard, sincere surrender. tawakal.

Though not so often but it is not abnormal either for us to sometime wonder what went wrong when something goes (horribly/totally) wrong or not the way we intended it to be. And, to stress on the 'though not so often' situation, it is just that these what-went-wrong things usually happen when we least expect them to be and on the things that would affect us the most.

Darn it ain't it.

- in response to the continous ads for bloggerboi siries on tv depicting and annoying gay boy with annoying slang which made him annoying in the first place. Ugh! So annoying! and the lead character's, i assume the leading character, bloggerboi, his hair...oh god...fuGGly!

gayboy : kenapa chekgu taknak org tahu yg chekgu yg lukis semua cartoon ni?? (sampai kepala terteleng2)
bloggerboy -->> muka kelat + ketat..
gayboy : it's ok chekgu..ur secret is safe with me...(terteleng2 lagi..)

suara 1 : melayu mudah lupa?

suara 1 : mereka mudah lupa?

suara 2 :it's normal to have happy people forgetting where they come from.

suara 2 :and especially when they feel that the world revolves only around them.


suara 3 : biasa lah. bila someone tu dah happy terlebey mmg la lumrah dia mudah lupa. especially bila dah ada geng. bila sengsorang tu humble ja. bila dah ramai, mula la mendabik dada, "this is me and im doing it myself" and start boycott orang style dunia aku, dunia aku, dunia ngkau, dunia ngkau. cam bagus. blah lah.


suara 2 : jgn biar org2 mcm nie linger in your life. move on and learn to jgn bg muka or layan dah org2 mcm nie.

suara 2 : dunia ni luas. ppl don't appreciate you, people look down on you, people make you feel unimportant, lupakan diorg. go and meet other people. but at the same time pray so Tuhan show what is wrong with you. Of course, semua org kena pray so we are always improving ourselves.

suara 3 : yes. in the end, it's between you and God.

suara 2 : people push you away. that's their will. what would you do...lagi nk gagah p dok dekat2? tak payah buang masa.

suara 1 : betul. org2 yg perasan bagus nie mmg annoying. look down on other people mcm diorg la paling bagus. cakap style bagus.

Graduation - Vitamin C

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of the night in June
I Didn't know much of love, but it came too soon
And There was me and you, and then it got real blue
Stay at home talkin' on the telephone and
We would get so excited that we would get so scared
Laughing at our selves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

Chorus:
As we go on, we remember
All the times we had together
And as our lives change, from whatever
We will still be, friends forever

So if we get the big jobs and we make the big money
When we look back now, will that joke still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
And this is how it feels

*Repeat chorus*

La, la, la, la; yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la, we will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there? Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

*Repeat chorus 3x*



we meet people, we call friends
and at our own pace,
our level of fondness for each other grew
and thus too,
the level of the love for one another

we carelessly grew closer to one and-other
enjoying each other's company
we take the time we have for granted
ain't ignorance is such a sweet bliss..

and the closer you get
the fonder the feeling gets
the deeper shall the pain be
when it's time to part..

when it comes down to this, makes you think, is the careless blissed ignorance really worth the pain?
