After the Temples, now the Cross...

I've just read the most disturbing piece of news in this blog which talks about a certain MP of Parit Sulong proposing on the demolishing of statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Crucifix in mission schools (apparently it was the actual words in BM of the MP). The rationale is that Muslim students go to missionary schools and since this is Islamic country, Tuan Syed Hood bin Syed Edros has proposed that these statues should be demolished (dirobohkan) and the crosses destroyed (dimusnahkan). If you are wondering whether he really did say it, download the transcript of the parliament here and check out page 143 (it's available for the public). Here's another blog that mentioned about this. And another. And another.

Obviously as an MP, he's not too well-versed in the Constitution of Malaysia, which he should be as he is, after all, a member of the parliament. I'm just saddened that after the Malaysian government has decided to go on a temple demolition spree, some crack pot wants to go after the mission schools. What will they think of next? It just amazes me that after being independant for 50 years, as a nation, it seems that we're just going one step forward and two steps back. Surprisingly, there are quite a number of well-known folks who graduated from Missionary schools, to name a few, see below. I wonder, by going to mission schools, would all of these jokers develop a sudden urge to be a Christian, quite apparenly, not. :

HINDRAF Rally

I can't comment much on this as I still need to digest & debate about what's going on but one thing for sure,this is the sign that people are getting tired of the empty promises and the MIC leaders who have done shit for the Indian community.

The power of Google

Don't mean to be mean towards the England fans but truly,England got what they deserved from the kind of performance they displayed through out the qualifiers.Now, you cannot argue with that.

Disposable e-mail account


You know the scenario,where a valid e-mail account is necessary to sign up for some service on the net but you are a little hesitant to reveal your e-mail address because of all the nasty spam & unnecessary newsletters that has been flooding your inbox.Enter Jetable...my favourite disposable e-mail address creator that allows me to stay anonymous.

Your Music Anywhere









Listen to My Radio on MediaMaster.com



I like MediaMaster that allows me to access my playlist from anywhere in the world via the internet.Uploading is a breeze and tracks play smoothly.If you are looking for something that plays tracks you are looking for instead, Songza would do just that.

Why you should quit smoking




Show me an experiment like this on the ill effects of caffeine and I will quit drinking coffee today.This video has to be the best visual evidence to show someone to quit smoking immediately.

ComicLife for Windows


I was thrilled to find out(a little late) that ComicLife is available for windows.Tons of features and you can create your very own comic strip to add a little fun to the usual and mundane pictures.Here you see an example of a strip I created in 5 mins...yes, 5 mins for my Japanese friends in Washington.The pictures were taken with a crappy N70 during one of our Yakiniku & Shochu binge and a lot of horsing around.

Was that election or erection?



This may be a little late on my part as I was not in the region but I am watching this at the airline lounge in LA and am laughing my head off.Listen carefully to what our INFORMATION minister is saying.I repeat INFORMATION minister ok.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts




I think there are no Krispy Kreme outlets in Singapore & Malaysia but personally I think they taste better then Dunkin Donuts.This is an outlet near my hotel and see the traditional original glazed donuts in the line being coated with sugar syrup?They are my favourite and is delicious when it's hot.
All said, they still will never beat a hot "vadai" with some green chili or some "putu-piring",that much I can tell you.Put me in America but you can never take the Malaysia out of me.


Do people look like their pet?



Fall in Washington




These pictures taken with my inferior camera phone doesn't do justice to the actual scenery all around in the state of Washington.I am sure TP can get great shots with his SLR camera.I have been coming to the US almost on a monthly basis for the last 7 months and the truth is am getting a little tired of it.I have one last trip (hopefully) next month and then can look forward to a nice break before my project in Korea begins.Isn't it funny when you realize we live in a world where the people who like to travel end up in some desk job and those who do not like travel much end up with jobs that require them to be living out of a suitcase.Time for a change if this does not ease up because I miss my family too much at times.Thanks to technology the Webcam & VOIP allows me to see my wife and kids daily.
