Check this out:
Unbelievable, a 73-year-old Austrian locking his daughter in a windowless cellar for 24 years and fathering her seven children, without anyone knowing it. Apparently, his wife is living with him. So many questions are yet to be answered.
Are we to believe that the wife living with him in the same house did not know anything about his despicable secrets for 24 long years?
You mean the children never cried out loud, or that the secret basement is 100% sound proof that even toilet flushes are muffled?
What about the telltale signs of clothings, and foodscraps?
What about ventilation and insulation?
We are not talking about 24 months, but 24 YEARS!!
Incredible, I simply cannot believe it .

Ai Yah Sori-lah!!
The Sunday Star said on page F27 : "It takes a big man to apologise". I think it has unwittingly omitted two important words.."on time". "It takes a big man to apologise on time." Hmmm ...sounds better! Our friend may not have missed the boat this time, but unfortunately it's taking him to Timbuktu. Good-bye, Sayur na na!!

One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written:'Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away.
We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym'.In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.Everyone thought: 'Who is this guy who was hindering my progress?
Well, at least he died!'.One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest partof their soul.There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: 'There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success.
You are the only person who can help yourself.Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realise that you are the only one responsible for your life.'The most important relationship you can have, is the one you have with yourself'Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality.
The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed.The world and your reality are like mirrors laying in a coffin, which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success.
It's the way YOU face Life that makes the difference. Have a nice day!]

Yesterday, no more bridge. Toady no more bullet train. Actually we don't really need bullet train from KL to Singapore. We need real fast transport from JB to Singapore; that's all. Come to think of it, it may be a good idea if we could use existing railway tracks for convoys of bullock carts plying from KL to JB, and also to Penang!! That way it will be very safe for the poor commuters who have to risk their lives in the hellish buses. Also save petrol, save road maintenance, save the world, and most important save lives!!

One bridge plus one bridge equals two bridges. Two bridges minus one bridge equals one bridge. One completed bridge plus one bridge on paper equals one bridge. Therefore, two bridges minus one bridge equals one completed bridge plus one bridge on paper!!
That's some statistics for your reckoning. The PM just announced that there would be no second bridge. Or was it just a "temporary" delay? It is most appropriately timed, because today is Earth Day. We are supposed to save Mother Earth, and this year's theme is "Water". What a better way to save Mother Earth. No more dredging, no more piling, no more concreting, no more polluting, no more cars!! Thank you Mr Prime Minister!! Check this out @ http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/04/22/business/AS-FIN-Malaysia-Projects-Postponed.php
Water, the elixir of life. Can anyone manufacture water? Can anyone produce water? How come we have to pay for water? If they have not blocked the rivers and dammed the flow, then we will have free water from the free-flowing streams and rivers!! News that they are going to increase water rates so that you and I will not waste water. Put it the other way; because you and I always waste water, we must now be punished to pay more for being uncivilized, that is not being civil. Let's boycott them, don't drink water for a week, and they will come begging us for forgiveness! I mean don't drink tap water. We can always rely on nature...rain. Or can we?

Fancy reading write-up on Penang hawker food in Silicon Valley's newspapers!! Check this out:
Who said Penang needs a Disneyland to woo tourists? I think this would be the last thing Penang wants to have. Just keep the island clean. Let the pearl shine again!

Aiyoh! Headache! Headache! Headache!
The downfall of a beginner blogger and an internet idiot. That's me. How I wish there is an internet wizard beside me. First, it was the viruses, and right now I think my PC is affected even after my daughter had "fixed" the virus problem. I can't upload picture from my PC to this blog due to "internal problem" so said the programme. And then the new gmail account refused to send my messages. And I wasted quite some time trying to unsubscribe but could not find the Button. Just had to create another gmail a/c.
Yesterday, tried to venture into the unknown and got caught again. I just couldn't fit the picture into the background of the Header of this blog. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!

There is no where to escape. We are all encased in this very minute sphere in the vast universe of unending space. Can't you see? Can't you see? Your life span is just a flicker of an eye blink, considering the awesome time scale of the universe. Do we still have time to waste on trivial irritations? Or is better to wise-up our life-style to pursue beneficial undertakings?
Have a fruitful day!

Narcolepsy (a pathologic tendency to doze off). Wah! This is The word that can make anyone wake up and take notice if you use it, like me! Must acknowledge my source, otherwise big trouble: http://blog.limkitsiang.com/ (Targeting the biggest ass)
Actually, it came from the article by Bakri Musa @ http://www.bakrimusa.com/ but the post is not there yet. I wonder how Uncle Lim did it.
Don't the specs remind you of someone very important in Malaysia?
Have a wakey day!

Heard of Estrada? Of course, Joseph Estrada the 13th President of the Philippines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Estrada). But not him I am talking about. I am referring to honest Eli Estrada, the one who found US$140,000 on the street and returned them!! A ray of hope for humanity! Would you have done the same? I am sure you would....???
Have a Lucky Day!!
The message below has been in circulation for quite some time. Better to be a cat if fish is your favourite!! You get it for free.
"Last week, I brought my guests to Genting Highlands. After a day 'above the clouds', we decided to have dinner at the Gohtong Jaya area on the way down. We ordered some dishes and decided to have a steamed fish as well. So the captain recommended 'sultan fish'. The steamed fish came. HALF, and plain steamed. Good & fine. But when the bill came, it came to over $500 !! We were shocked !! We were told the fish was 1.4kg ( & please bear in mind, its ONLY HALF A FISH ) at RM 320 per kg! RM 420!! This was daylight robbery. We were not informed by the Captain that a kg of the Sultan fish would cost us RM 320 and there was also no signs of such pricings anywhere in the restaurant. When we checked with the cashier, she told us, its correct !! Of cos, it was our mistake for not asking the price first. Anyway, on the way back to KL, we stopped at Unique Seafood,PJ, where one can choose a live fish. The most expensive Soon Hock swimming in the tank is RM135 per kilo. Asked them about the Sultan fish, it is going for RM100 a kilo. Will be sending this letter to the newspapers, Tourism board, etc etc; and friends, pls pass on to all on yr email list. CHEATED. (find the receipt below)
Note: Make it a habit to ask for the fish price before you order anytime as many restaurant like to skip the pricing."

I like taking close-ups. It's the concentration on minute details. The mind is always focused on the object. The connection is complete when you release the shutter! It is a very personal feeling that "I've done it!" And when the image comes out perfect, there is a sense of achievement. This exercise you can do it on your own. No one to disturb your concentration. Just like meditation. You see every detail in life!

Fruit and vege carving is a very fascinating and painstaking art. You will need a lot of patience and deft fingers. It certainly takes a lot of practice to master the skill. Visit any such demonstration and you will discover how a plain ball of watermelon being turned into an exquisite and colourful presentation of different hues. Just like life itself; if left untouched it is just like the plain old watermelon, with all the hidden qualities and potentials inside. We need the skill to carve out our outer layers to reveal all our splendour. Do we ever think of how to reveal our hidden potential? Don't always show the plain uninteresting wall paper. Tear it up and reveal the beautiful landscape beyond the open windows. Free ourselves of impeding negative and fearful obstacles. Fly like a soaring falcon. Take a challenge, do something rewarding, help others or help yourself to be healthy and contented. Have a Happy Day!

We are all given more or less the same ingredients in life. For the mediocre, the ingredients will be messed up into unpalatable chunks. As for the discerning sculptor, life becomes an art for the creation of his imagination. It is up to you: to be a creative artist or a nondescript scribbler!
Have an Imaginative Day!

It is very refreshing to encounter new experiences, like learning new tricks each day, through blogging. The mantra is in the air:
"I am getting smarter and smarter day by day
On-top-of-the-world feeling is my way
Not only this makes sense
Even the Sun is in my hands"
Have a sunny day!!
