What kind of Humanity is this?

Damn, reading the newspaper today was supposed to be interesting and relaxing. Little did I know, I bumped to this article:

Dog loses jaw after cruel beating

JOY, a little black dog whose jaw was surgically removed after he was almost beaten to death, still looks at humans with love.

Despite the cruelty rendered to him, he still looks at people to be petted and loved.

On Dec 2, Sabrina Yeap, managing partner of the Furry Friends Farm (FFF), rescued Joy at the Ki-Park Sri Utara construction site belonging to developer, Kepong Industrial Park Sdn Bhd (KIP Group).

Joy's lower jaw was dangling and his tongue was hanging out.

Two eyewitnesses said they had seen him being beaten by Indonesian foreign workers who kept calling the dog haram as they continuously beat it.

Joy’s lower jaw was so badly injured that it had to be surgically removed, but its tongue was saved despite having lacerations and blood clots.

Dr Habeeb Rahman Ibramsa, a lecturer in Quran and Sunnah studies at the International Islamic University in Gombak, volunteered to give a talk to the foreign workers who were involved in the beating of Joy.

But, to date, the owners of KIP Group has refused to co-operate.

“I wish to end this ignorance. The Quran does not support violence against animals; I am willing to give lectures, presentations and screen videos that support what I am saying.

“I hope the public, Government officials, foreign workers and others who need to hear this truth will attend,” said Dr Habeeb.

Yeap said FFF was not looking for the government to punish the people who did this to Joy.
“We are calling on the government to support our public education projects by persuading the developer, KIP Group, to allow us to educate their workers.

“Joy may not be able to fetch a ball or toy anymore but he still knows how to show his delight in human companionship,” Yeap said.

A little gathering will be held at the Canteen Restaurant in Plaza Damas to support Joy.
Those interested in attending can also bring a little gift for him.

For details, call Yeap at 016-631 9018.

How could people act on such cruelty. The best part is that guy yelling "Haram" which means illegal. How the hell is a dog illegal? Though in Islamic studies dogs are inappropriate creatures in their eyes, doesn't mean that humans have the right to be cruel to them. Try pulling this stance in United States, they'll drag your sorry ass to a cell block.

Protecting Limits

Got this shot from a friend. I guess sometimes pictures do say a thousand words. Anyone up to buy ACE insurance? Even I'm working in Prudential it doesnt insure my private parts.

For those who cant read Malay, it simply means "Protecting your private parts".

BIG dinner...

Last Friday, my colleagues and I had this craving to try out the Alaskan Spider Crab... Seems like this 1 crab alone can be made into 4 dishes, enough to feed 10 yea, you can guess how curious we could get...
After work we went to this nearby restaurant called the seafood paradise at Conlay Club. Looks like a high class restaurant thought and we all dress up like normal casual wear... I mean who cares? We have the money, We're hungry, We'll just go eat!
First, we chose which crab to take for dinner from this big ass aquarium. We spotted one that is about 2.5kg. Do bear in mind, the crab costs RM19.80 per 100gram... so the crab alone of 2.5kg costed us RM549.50 hahaha, tell me I'm crazy...

Please ignore the guy. He's just too suprised seeing something so huge in his entire life...
We also ordered some extra dishes as fail safe plan in case the crab does not fill us up good enough. so we had chicken, tofu and green bean.
As we patiently waited for the food to cook, well you guys can see how tiringly hungry I was. (not to mention I was on fever that day)

Finally the crab came in four different dishes!! yay, time to wack it up!!

This is just the legs and the knucles...

Then they used the shell to make steamed eggs.

Lower part of the legs are used for BBQ purposes.
Check the MEAT on just the LEGS... our normal grabs cant even get close to this amount of meat!
Then here's rest of the meat... I feel a little wasted and conned but then again, I don't care! I was sick and hungry! haha
Then the rest of the side orders came in as well..
At the end, the whole deal cost us RM777.89...there's like 8 of us so each had to fork out RM97. A little too costly but hey, it may only be a one time experience. Anyone who wanna know mroe about this place could drop me a note with your email address and I'll show you where it is.

For Religion or for Weirdness?

Read the papers today? What on earth Kelantan Government is trying to do? Drive us all to nuts?! Such discrimination; Such disrespect. Such chauvinist act! Did they ever think of what the women has to say? Or is it that they themselves (Government) need to control such dress codes so that they themselves would not be tempted to commit crimes?

I won't mind what they do to the state of Kelantan but this is going to far. They are violating human's rights with disrespect, the worse of all. They are dropping the standards of men and insulting men like us (ME...hehe) who has a mutual respect for women and their rights. Sia Sui la like this...

What they want the women to wear? Like this??

There are countried where women are to wear like this. This is because these countries are Islamic countries, htey had no choice but to abide in that law. But for Malaysia, the government had been proudly claiming that this is a multi racial country, therefore they should learn to respect other races and their own beliefs as well.

Imagine all of the women in malaysia have to abide in this 1 day...
you'll have a few people taking pictures together and...

Man1: Wah, Who's picture is this??
Man2: Well, The red circle is my wife, and the blue circle is my daughter.
Man1: Are you sure??
Man2: I guess...It's so friggin hard to identify them since they had to wear like this!!!

Scenario 2:

Man1: Wai seh, Damn proud leh me...My wife went on strike just for my beliefs...
Man2: Which is your wife?
Man1: Neh, that no, this one...ermm, I dunno which is it....
Man2: =.='

RM 21 MILLION??!!!

Did you guys read the news today about Malacca undergoing a construction for a tower? Yes it looks like a younger brother of the Malaysian tower.

This tower is about 110 meters high and looks like a... well, I don't know what to make of it. The best part is, it costs RM21mil to build this thing. Why?? It seems to attract tourists.

Now let's see, is that 'thing' there really gonna work? I mean let's be frank to ourselves. Is this project really gonna benefit us from the Visit Malaysia 2007 campaign? IT'S A FREAKING 21MILLION construction!! 1 year of touring around gonna get that back?

Plus, who in the right mind would wanna visit Malaysia due to it's fame of crimes happening on daily basis? Why do crimes occur?

1) Our School did not give students appropriate teachings of humanity? Moral subject? It's a good subject to be taught in school but it's a load of crap that was taught.

2) Poverty? Yea well maybe. This could lead to crime do-ers as well.

3) Encouraging governments towards crime. A bold statement, I know. But don't you see it? "I rape her because she dresses sexily." "I robbed him coz his wallet is showing as he should keep it away from naked eyes."

We can actually use the RM21 Million to do something more useful with it. Repair the roads, use it to subsidise to road maintenance so the Fucking Toll wont hike up. Help the schools financially to get better and dedicated teachers. I realise some teachers these days don't give a shit towards the kids anymore. Not like those old days where teachers are fully dedicated to the students. Now?? You do your work la. I'll rest my ass on this chair, whether you like it or not.

Well, I guess it's just the way our leaders works. Throw in 21 mil and then then 3million goes to you, 2 million goes to him, another 3 million goes to our private funding. "There the rest really goes to the building"

Even councils hold meetings on places like Awana resort. Why? coz our hall too small to hold meetings. What kind of bright idea is that? That clearly shows that All the good citizen's money had gone in vain. Money that could help either the community or even invest into other foreign business to hike our country's economy has gone to the wrong hands.

Apart from that, did any of you realize how fucking LAZY the government officers are?? Here let me show you:

Come in to work
8:45am to 10:00am
Go for breakfast with other colleagues
10:00am to 12:00pm
Come back from Breakfast to work
12:00pm to 2:00pm
Go for lunch
2:00pm to 3:00pm
Come back from lunch to work
3:00pm to 3:30pm
Tea Break
3:30pm to 4:30pm
4:30pm Go back~~~

This is how they work. Best part is, the Front liners, people who sits at the counter to serve, There's only either 2 or 3 people working at the counters and they have 7 empty counters.

Counter Backman!!

Remember the previous post I shared with you guys about this Michael Backman's comment on Malaysia? On the 19th November at Star newspaper, Rafidah Aziz finally replied the comment, and it goes like this:

Rafidah plays down Aussie barbs

KUALA LUMPUR: An article in an Australian newspaper The Age ridiculing Malaysia and calling Malaysia “bodoh” (stupid) has left International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz unperturbed.

“What do we care? Obviously, this person doesn’t know Malaysia. He is an outsider and he can say what he likes. I don’t really care about what others say – as long as it is not a Malaysian saying it,” she said.

The Wanita Umno chief said the Australian writer had apparently not followed the Umno general assembly proceedings closely.

“If he did, he would have seen things differently.”
The Nov 15 article by Michael Backman said it was time Malaysia grew up and stopped arguing about what proportion of the economy the Chinese and Malays owned.

The Government was more interested in stunts like sending an astronaut into space when the country’s inadequate schools could have done with the cash, the writer said, adding “that's not Malaysia Boleh, that’s Malaysia Bodoh.”

As long as not a Malaysian saying it? Well I'm definitely one of the Malaysian saying it. Judging by What Nazri Aziz said about Malaysian being too STOOPID to be jurors. Or is it that Malaysians are too innocent to be jurors to play a part in the corrupted justice?

What I'm suspecting that Court every day will have at least 1 corrupted case where the big shots will give some under table bribery to win a certain case. That's when the judge will get rich coz he's the only guy who would judge you in court. If we have jurors, the so-called big shots will have to pay more money to more people to win their case.

Corruption is a game in Malaysia and bribery is the energy for it. My 2 cents worth. You guys should believe what you believe. These are my assumptions and there are the proves of articles to it. So believe what you will. :)

Flashback of a new Age of Malaysia

A Flashback from Previous Backman's remark. I have nothing to say but to share the grieve of Malaysian Citizens with you.

Miffed Mahathir starts to retaliate
Michael Backman
July 12, 2006

MAHATHIR Mohamad, Malaysia's former prime minister, is not happy. He was content to leave politics in late 2003 in return for a degree of reverence as an elder statesman, and perhaps to be consulted from time to time. He wasn't banking on being largely ignored, openly blamed for current and past errors, and seeing initiatives he backed dismantled in a way that seems calculated to make him lose face, particularly in the Asian context.

But Mahathir has retaliated in the past fortnight. He has claimed publicly that his successor, Abdullah Badawi, has stabbed him in the back. He has rebutted criticisms made of him and he has questioned Abdullah's policies.

The media, which under Abdullah was supposed to report the news rather than be the Government's good-news mouthpiece, blacked out Mahathir's remarks, presumably on Government orders. The Government also responded through Nazri Aziz, a minister in the Prime Minister's office who, in a 45-minute news conference, launched a fierce attack on Mahathir, advising him to be a "real man" and to leave UMNO, the ruling party. He even accused Mahathir of not loving his country, as if criticising the Government meant criticising the country. That's the sort of confusion normally reserved for developing-world dictators.
Also last week, a former political secretary of Mahathir, who weighed in to support his former boss, was rewarded with a defamation suit for 50 million ringgit ($A18.3 million) from the deputy chairman of Malaysia's biggest newspaper group.

And a former owner of the national airline filed a court document to say he never wanted it and that Mahathir's government made him buy it. Presumably, that is what led him to strip millions from it in related-party transactions.

And former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim lodged with the High Court his reply to Mahathir's attempt to get his defamation suit against Mahathir quashed. Anwar made a range of new allegations about how the government was run under Mahathir, seemingly neglecting the fact that it was also Anwar's government at the time.

Amid all this madness, there was spark of common sense. Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail floated the idea of bringing back jury trials, which were abolished 11 years ago. Malaysians were now better read, informed and competent, he said.

But the spark was soon extinguished by none other than Nazri Aziz. Jurors were "ordinary" people, Nazri said, and might be swayed into believing clever lawyers' arguments. Goodness. On top of that, they might be bribed. Essentially, Nazri was saying that Malaysians were too stupid to be jurors and that court decisions were better left to judges. Apparently Malaysian judges are renowned for their professionalism, incorruptibility and independence. I hadn't known that.

The Mahathir furore has helped Abdullah mask his own inaction. When he came to office he encouraged expectations that he would seriously tackle corruption and promote transparency.
But Malaysia's police remain a disgrace. Out of control, corrupt and trigger-happy, they generally kill at least one person a week.

So far, no major Government project has been subject to an open tendering process, despite Abdullah's suggestions they would be.

And, despite all the talk of getting rid of nepotism, the families of most politicians remain involved in businesses that rely on Government contracts, including Abdullah's own.
Furthermore, he appears to be excessively reliant on his son-in-law, the unelected 31-year-old Khairy Jamaluddin.

Mahathir no longer wants Abdullah to remain Prime Minister. He hasn't for quite some time. His preference is for Najib Razak, the current deputy.

So what is Najib like? He's certainly no Mahathir. He rarely takes a strong position on anything, and when he does, it's usually because he's worked out which way the numbers are. Accordingly, he has few strong enemies; nor many passionate supporters.

Ever the good deputy, Najib was quick to pledge loyalty to Abdullah last week but he also refrained from saying anything critical of Mahathir. A fence-sitter but a splendid one, he is rich, Malay, well-educated, and his father (Tun Abdul Razak) was prime minister.

But will Najib take the tough decisions that so far have eluded Abdullah? Nothing in his career suggests he will. It will probably be business as usual, and in Malaysia politics is always about business.

Najib's younger brother, Nazir Razak, is chief executive of CIMB, Malaysia's largest investment bank. He and two other brothers, Nizam and Johari, are involved in GP Ocean Food, which describes itself as the country's biggest integrated fisheries group.

The company planned to issue a prospectus to enable it to list on the stock exchange this year, but that was shelved last week after the Securities Commission announced an investigation into alleged irregularities in the company's accounts. That's the thing about Malaysia: so much of the regulatory apparatus almost works.

But back to Mahathir. Is all his noise a bad thing? Not at all. Mahathir must keep up his criticisms. It doesn't matter whether he is right or wrong. What matters is that he keeps going. Monopolies are never a good thing, particularly when it comes to a monopoly of ideas. Mahathir has given Malaysians a lot of things. Giving them what might turn out to be the most effective opposition voice they've had is his latest contribution.

Flashy buildings make a country look modern. But real modernity comes from open public debate. Mahathir is dragging Malaysia forward while Abdullah is disappointing.

What a Day~

Work is so boring today. Nothing much to do but just to clean up some sh!t from yesterday's work and there you go. I've been sitting around, looking at my windows view from a 14th storey building; looking out at a busy KL streets.

I didn't really have much choice but to go downstairs to get myself newspapers. Again, nothing much interesting on today's paper but the same ol' blabber about the UMNO meeting. All talks but mostly crap comes out of their mouth. They wanted to ban live telecast of the next meeting and they we saying that it's difficult to hide away facts from other media apart from newspaper (which they can control) and television. It was mention that internet is another huge source for other people to receive information about their meeting not to mention bloggers (us) to write down things that they say without thinking through their head. Namely, racist comments.
What I think is that these people really don't give a sh!t about the community. All they cared about is just to make sure the money flows in their pockets consistently and maintaining their position of authority to receive these money. Selfish act you say? Hahaha who doesn't know? This is the Malaysian goverment for your information.
Like what comments I have from other bloggers, We have a good country. But we have a pathetic goverment to govern the country. Imagine this; newspaper journalists went to a municipal council meeting, a CCTV engineer zooms the CCTV to the woman's thigh, The president of the counsel does not blame the fault on the CCTV control man. Better yet, he blames it on the dresscode of the woman as being 'sexy'.

If this is what they refer by sexy then ok la! Even I'll probably go for it and agree with the president...

But HELLO! This one also you wanna see meh??

What kind of pervetic act is this? It's like telling in court:

Judge: Did you rape this woman?

Convict: Yes i did. but it's not my fault.

Judge: Please elaborate...

Convict: She dressed up too sexily that night I couldn't hold my lust in then I went for it. And indeed I must say, She is a good fuck.

Judge: Understood. It's not your fault then. Lady, you are in the wrong. I therefore shall sentence you to 3 years jail for making him rape you due to your sexy clothing.

*Hammer Down*

This is Malaysia. A beautiful country with corruption in the air. We always hear people say having love in the air; but for Malaysia, we got:

1) Corruption in the air

2) Pollution in the air

3) Haze in the air

Beautiful country it is. :)

An Interesting Article.

Today I've read an article by a businessman called Michael Backman from Australia commenting about Malaysia. I was dumb-founded reading this yet agreeing every word he says. Here's how it goes:

While Malaysia fiddles, its opportunities are running dry

Michael Backman
November 15, 2006

MALAYSIA'S been at it again, arguing about what proportion of the economy each of its two main races — the Malays and the Chinese — owns. It's an argument that's been running for 40 years. That wealth and race are not synonymous is important for national cohesion, but really it's time Malaysia grew up.

It's a tough world out there and there can be little sympathy for a country that prefers to argue about how to divide wealth rather than get on with the job of creating it.

The long-held aim is for 30 per cent of corporate equity to be in Malay hands, but the figure that the Government uses to justify handing over huge swathes of public companies to Malays but not to other races is absurd. It bases its figure on equity valued, not at market value, but at par value.

Many shares have a par value of say $1 but a market value of $12. And so the Government figure (18.9 per cent is the most recent figure) is a gross underestimate. Last month a paper by a researcher at a local think-tank came up with a figure of 45 per cent based on actual stock prices. All hell broke loose. The paper was withdrawn and the researcher resigned in protest. Part of the problem is that he is Chinese.

"Malaysia boleh!" is Malaysia's national catch cry. It translates to "Malaysia can!" and Malaysia certainly can. Few countries are as good at wasting money. It is richly endowed with natural resources and the national obsession seems to be to extract these, sell them off and then collectively spray the proceeds up against the wall.

This all happens in the context of Malaysia's grossly inflated sense of its place in the world.

Most Malaysians are convinced that the eyes of the world are on their country and that their leaders are world figures. This is thanks to Malaysia's tame media and the bravado of former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad. The truth is, few people on the streets of London or New York could point to Malaysia on a map much less name its prime minister or capital city.

As if to make this point, a recent episode of The Simpsons features a newsreader trying to announce that a tidal wave had hit some place called Kuala Lumpur. He couldn't pronounce the city's name and so made up one, as if no-one cared anyway. But the joke was on the script writers — Kuala Lumpur is inland.

Petronas, the national oil company is well run, particularly when compared to the disaster that passes for a national oil company in neighbouring Indonesia. But in some respects, this is Malaysia's problem. The very success of Petronas means that it is used to underwrite all manner of excess.

The KLCC development in central Kuala Lumpur is an example. It includes the Twin Towers, the tallest buildings in the world when they were built, which was their point.

It certainly wasn't that there was an office shortage in Kuala Lumpur — there wasn't.

Malaysians are very proud of these towers. Goodness knows why. They had little to do with them. The money for them came out of the ground and the engineering was contracted out to South Korean companies.

They don't even run the shopping centre that's beneath them. That's handled by Australia's Westfield.

Next year, a Malaysian astronaut will go into space aboard a Russian rocket — the first Malay in space. And the cost? $RM95 million ($A34.3 million), to be footed by Malaysian taxpayers. The Science and Technology Minister has said that a moon landing in 2020 is the next target, aboard a US flight. There's no indication of what the Americans will charge for this, assuming there's even a chance that they will consider it. But what is Malaysia getting by using the space programs of others as a taxi service? There are no obvious technical benefits, but no doubt Malaysians will be told once again, that they are "boleh". The trouble is, they're not. It's not their space program.

Back in July, the Government announced that it would spend $RM490 million on a sports complex near the London Olympics site so that Malaysian athletes can train there and "get used to cold weather".

But the summer Olympics are held in the summer.

So what is the complex's real purpose? The dozens of goodwill missions by ministers and bureaucrats to London to check on the centre's construction and then on the athletes while they train might provide a clue.

Bank bale outs, a formula one racing track, an entire new capital city — Petronas has paid for them all. It's been an orgy of nonsense that Malaysia can ill afford.

Why? Because Malaysia's oil will run out in about 19 years. As it is, Malaysia will become a net oil importer in 2011 — that's just five years away.

So it's in this context that the latest debate about race and wealth is so sad.

It is time to move on, time to prepare the economy for life after oil. But, like Nero fiddling while Rome burned, the Malaysian Government is more interested in stunts like sending a Malaysian into space when Malaysia's inadequate schools could have done with the cash, and arguing about wealth distribution using transparently ridiculous statistics.

That's not Malaysia "boleh", that's Malaysia "bodoh" (stupid).

Going Round and Round and Round and...

I was browsing through blogs the other day and guess what? I found an interesting one.

  • Evie's Blog

  • There's a particular post on ingredients you need to make yourself up to be a vampire.

    Scary right? Anyway, about 3 years ago, I wanted to remove my original miniature fangs to implant in a real and not-so-lame fangs into my teeth set to make me look like a real vamp.

    At that time, I have a girlfriend who works as a nurse at a dental clinic so I thought, "Hey, I have the right connection!"

    So 1 day I wasnt working so I went to my girlfriend's clinic to "check in" and said I needed a surgery. My girlfriend pulled me aside and asked me, "You got teeth pain meh? how come you didn't tell me?" then I explained the whole situation to her and she was like =.=' Then she goes, "Are you Crazy??!!!! if you're doing it, don't expect me to ever see you again."

    On the spot, my whole world crushed in front of me. I was like hoping so much to do it but then again it was rejected even before I actually "checked-in"! Normally I would not give in to threats but this time I guess I had to take a rain check without even thinking twice.

    Then again, after all these years, (she's not with me anymore) when I think back about it, she was right! haha how could I be able to get any jobs or even meet anyone properly if I were to do those fangs? So I guess what comes aroudn goes around huh? speaking which, here's an interesting article I read today:

    Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunited at a party.

    After several drinks, one of the men had to use the restroom. Those who remained talked about their kids.The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he's the president of the company. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his birthday."

    The second guy said, "Darn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight school to become a pilot . Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of its assets. He's so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday." The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday: A 30,000 square foot mansion."

    The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned from the restroom and asked: "What are all the congratulations for?" One of the three said: "We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our son...What about your son?"

    The fourth man replied: "My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub."

    The three friends shifted uncomfortably. "Hmmmm, what a shame," one replied. The fourth man replied: "No, I'm not ashamed. He's my son and I love him. And he hasn't done too bad either. His birthday was two weeks ago, and he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends."

    Terrible Morning Shock

    What our world had turned into? first we get breaking and entering during the 80s, robbing during the 90s and the new millennium? we get snatch thefts everywhere and not to mention, the latest, Headshots and C4 bombs...

    I think we can blame soneone for this, blame counter strike! this game is widely spread in the online game world. every youngster from every country is now playing this, getting guns shooting one another and oh ya, you get to plant C4 explosives as well! hehe

    This in a way had taught us well enough on how to hold a gun and just pull the bloody trigger. and C4s well i'm not sure, they may be all crazy enough to go to a bombing school opened by bin laden's family or something to learn. But this artical below is just all wrong. very wrong indeed. Hitting a girl is bad enough, what more bombing and shooting one? Goodness!!

    KUALA LUMPUR: Police have picked up a prominent political analyst attached with a politically well-connected think-tank for questioning over the gruesome murder of a Mongolian model whose body was blown to bits.
    The man, who is in his 40s, was taken from his office in Ampang here by several policemen at about 10am yesterday.
    The private think-tank conducts research and prints publications on politics, economics, defence and international relations.
    The analyst is being detained at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman where he is assisting a special task force set up to probe the murder of 28-year-old Altantuya Shaariibuu.
    The analyst is expected to be remanded today.
    Altantuya, who goes by the name Anna and said to be a stunning beauty from Ulaanbaatar, arrived in Kuala Lumpur about a month ago.
    She reportedly went missing about three weeks ago.
    Sources said a report lodged by her sister and cousin led to the arrest of three police personnel – a chief inspector, a woman detective and a corporal with the Special Action Force or SAF, more commonly known as the Unit Tindakan Khas.
    The corporal is part of a pool of SAF members used to guard VIPs and other dignitaries.
    All three police personnel have been remanded by the police.
    Yesterday, magistrate Azniza Mohd Ali ordered the remand of the corporal while the chief inspector and woman detective were remanded on Thursday.

    On Monday, more than 40 police officers, including those from the Forensic Department, went to the crime scene at Subang Dam, Puncak Alam in Selangor, where they found bone fragments believed to be that of Altantuya in some bushes.

    Police believe she was shot twice and her body blown to bits.
    It is understood that C4 explosives were used to blow up her body in an effort to destroy evidence.

    GRISLY FIND: The spot where Altantuya was blown up in Puncak Alam, Selangor. — STARpic by AZHAR MAHFOF

    C4 or Composition 4 is a common but powerful explosive used for demolition work.
    Police are said to be putting together the circumstances that led to Altantuya visiting the man at his house here, where she was said to have confronted him.

    They said the police also wanted to find out whether the man had summoned three police officers to take Altantuya away from the house.

    Her sister and cousin lodged police reports when Altantuya did not return after leaving her hotel on Oct 19.

    She was staying at Hotel Malaya in Jalan Hang Lekir.
    Sources said police also wanted to know when the man and the Mongolian model first met and whether there was any sexual relationship between them and if he had fathered a son with the woman.

    Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said he had ordered a thorough investigation to be conducted and promised that there would be no cover-up.

    “Whoever is involved would be brought to book regardless of his stature.
    “I am also going to find out how and who authorised the issuance of the explosives used in the murder,” he said.
    This artical was taken from the star newspaper today.

    Then What do you have to say about this? Leaders fighting with one another, so much for unity huh? if the goverment cant stand amongst themselves, how could they unite us as Malaysians? I'm just too tired to comment about this coutnry already.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Efforts to mend fences with former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would be a waste of time, said Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz.

    “It is for the Prime Minister to decide; but if you ask me, I would say, forget it because he (Dr Mahathir) not only attacked the party and the Government but also talked about the Prime Minister needing to be replaced, and that cannot be tolerated. He has crossed the line,” she said.

    Rafidah also said that she would not forgive her former mentor for the accusations he had made against her over the Approved Permits issue.

    “I will never forgive him for accusing me of all kinds of things. I cannot take it any more, I have reached boiling point,” she said.
    “In Islam, fitnah (slander) is worse than murder. It’s better to murder me. Then, I would be dead and gone. Instead, what he says comes out in every media all over the world.

    “I do not accept his accusations against me and I don’t know where he gets his information. He has been misguided.”

    The International Trade and Industry Minister said Umno should forget about trying to mend fences with Dr Mahathir or even listening to his criticisms.

    “I say, forget it. He not only had a private meeting with the Prime Minister, he taped it, then held two press conferences. Where does that leave us, especially the accusations made against me? And he goes and tells the media that I should be resigning,” she added.

    Rafidah said this was not the time for party members to be double-faced or to sit on the fence.
    “We have no sides in Umno and the present Umno is led by (Datuk Seri) Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. No Umno member, whether a past president or past prime minister has the right to hold sway over three million members who just want unity, and for the present leadership to lead the Barisan Nasional and the country.”

    She said that when Dr Mahathir retired, she thought he would play a guiding role.
    “His statement that we are a half-past-six government is giving the country a bad image.”
    However, she said she would not stop delegates to the Wanita Umno assembly starting on Tuesday from debating the “Tun issue”.

    Life is like an APE sometimes doesn't it?

    Recently as you guys know I was in Hong Kong working on some project. While there I kinda started to grow on a liking to a certain brand. And do you guys wanna know what brand is it? Look at the picture, then you'll figure this out...

    Yes it is known as *Bape* or A Bathing Ape. It was inspired from the Planet of the Apes and this funky guy in Japan started making up these logos and got it kick started in Japan then now, Global. Whoah, not an easy task but this guy did it. 3 Cheers to him! Yay! Well my personal review, I think the quality of the clothes is not that bad. the designs are cool and some what cool. Material used are fully cotton and and it's cooling to wear.

    OK, let me start with the shop itself, have you ever tried going to a certain boutique and end up lining up about almost an hour just to get yourself in? Well this is the one. I must say it's really not very fun as when I was there it was summer, waiting outside the humid weather definitely puts down the mood. But when I got in, it made the whole waiting sequence worthwhile.

    This is the Bape store during construction. Wa Lao! construction also do until so fancy, Need meh? Looks really prestigious though.

    This picture shows the opening of this Bape store in Hong Kong, People started lining up since nigh to wait till morning to get their hands on these clothes. Wow these kind of business I wanna do it as well, but unfortunately it's really difficult; so I guess I'll pass...

    This is how it looks like from the entrance of the boutique. Cool huh? the fancy lightings... But waot till you see inside. It's a shocker! I'm not a shopping fanetic but this is by far the most advance, cool looking boutique I've ever been in. The staff there are very helpful as well, sometimes too helpful to the extend I feel a little weird when I go in. Let's see the design from indside...

    Cool huh? The interior's so fine, so futuristic. oh yea and it's damn expensive too. Well let's see, I got a Tshirt for HK$499 which is like RM246 and a jeans for like HK$1959 which is about RM960+. But here's the problem, there's something about the boutique that just makes you come back for more. I know I did. :) So in a way, I'm glad I'm back in KL as if I were to stay there any longer, I would buy the whole shop up! hahaha

    And that's me wearing one of those t-shirts...Cheers~

    To Tree or NOT To Tree

    I understand that there's many weird happenings occur everyday all around the world, but I think this is by far the best for me for today:

    I was having lunch with my colleagues today as usual but all of a sudden we broke into a topic of Tea and Coffee. One of my colleague was talking about tea leaf on how they process and how dirty it is and so on, then another colleague was talking about how they process Cocoa Tree by stepping on them. That makes it more dirty.

    Then we started saying to a colleague that she drinks a lot of coffee that means it's dirty. (Well, coffee bean is made from cocoa and cocoa is processed by using bare feet to step on it). So this colleague of mine was asking, "I drink coffee only mah, not cocoa also, why dirty?"

    We were like....

    "You didn't know coffee bean comes from cocoa???!!!"
    Well initially she explained that she had this idea of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafe. Since Tea leaf comes from Tea tree, there's no doubt that coffee bean comes from coffee tree!!

    Obviously we started laughing at her so hard that even my stomach hurts. and she was like, "You mean to tell me all these 29 years of my life I have been thinking there's such a thing as coffee tree and now....". And this was how she looked after we laughed at her...

    In just 1 lunch, her world of her imagination crushed right before her. And the best part is she just send an email to all of us when we reached office stating that she still could not accept the fact!

    This clearly shows us that we are quite often living under our own fantasy. It's fun to see what other people's fantasies are like; just like this colleague of mine.

    But apart from these jokes, here's a shocker. Coffee bean comes from coffee seeds that comes from coffee plant!. complimentary from

    Coffee bean
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    coffee bean is the seed of the coffee plant. It is the stone inside the red
    or purple fruit of the coffee plant. The fruits, coffee cherries or coffee
    berries, contain most commonly two stones lying with their flat sides together.
    The coffee beans consists of mostly endosperm which contains 0.8 -
    2.5 % caffeine, a main reason for
    cultivating the plants. Coffee beans are an important export product for some

    So now, we got something to think about...hmmm... Coffee from cocoa?? or is this another conspiracy theory in Malaysia? hmm... nah, i'm just playin.

    First Attempt on Blogger

    As this is my first post for this blog, let me try to do something nice with it. Let's see... Oh yes, recently I was sent to Hong Kong for six weeks to work on some project. well yes it is fun in a way but let me tell you it's not all that fun. The work piles up in a pace of a Ferrari car yet the manpower to get the job done is only me! So as you can see it is pretty bad.

    But apart from that, there's a couple of nice things to do in Hong Kong as well. Travelling around, meeting new people and the best part is SHOPPING!! Unfortunately i'm not so much of a shopping fan but indeed i got to buy some items worth keeping.. :)

    First of all, every night i would go to work as usual but the fun only starts at night after work which is around 11pm. Then where would I go?? hmm...not so much for shopping i guess as you can see the time i finished work. so i took a couple of block walk and end up at a place called...

    Yeap. It's called Lan Kwai Fong... The famous nightlife of Hong Kong. Well very similar to the Bangsar we have in KL but you can't seem to find any other races apart from chinese and white people... So you may think, "Hmm.... not much of a variety for a pick up now is it?" haha...

    Drinks are fine, well exceptionally cheap if you calculate it with the pub/club price in KL. 1 pint of beer is about HK$ 54. That's about RM25 for a pint. And a pint is huge unlike the bloody glass/mug we have in KL; well double the size actually! and my favourate drink there is.....HOEGAARDEN and SCHNEIDER-WEISSE!!!

    Looks COOL huh?? Well you can get these beers in KL actually. I have been to several places that has Hoegaarden. Places like Bangsar Village, inside Village Grocer, you can look for these cool beers in the alcohol section. Bangsar Shopping Complex, Cold Storage has these as well. Oh yea, I found it in Sunway Pyramid's Tony Roma's Restaurant as well.

    Another part of Hong Kong is I did picked up a funny interest of collecting Miniature Figurines like McFarlane's Spawn, H.G.Giger's Alien and Predator!!

    These are the Spawns I was able to find and trust me when I said it is not EASY! I had to walk to several buildings, check them out one by one and come back the the previous building to get what I liked. It is really tiresome I tell you! OK, let's continue with the pictures...

    Wicked Sick huh? I know, I know, it's hard to resist. Well, for me at least. When i was looking at these toys at the glassed windows, it was as if calling out for me asking me to buy it! spooky! So much for resisting temptations. Sigh...

    Apart from this, I also bought a Legend. Classic, Old-School piece of Figurine; which is....

    YES! You've guessed it!! Transformers' Optimus Prime!! As I was walking to go out of the building of toys, I spotted this thing and I was like, "Wow!! I need to get this... This is classic." and so I opened my wallet, paid the guy and got something satisfying with it. Damn that feels good. lol...

    I remember when I was way younger around the age of 8-10, my family and I were walking around Toys R' Us looking for a toy to get me for my Christmas present. When I passed this isle of Transformers collections, I saw the very first edition of Optimus Prime, costing RM99.90!! (During those days, 99 bucks is a huge sum; and my parents aren't that rich either) I immediately fell in love with it. (Not the 'love' we're talking about when we're adults) and obviously I was excited to get it! (Not the erotic kind of excitement ok?) My parents was reluctant to get it for me as it was a wee bit too expensive for a kid like me. So what i did? I threw a fit! Crying, stomping feets, shouting, you name it, I did it! so eventually I got it and that was one of my happiest moments in life.

    Oh well, enough talk and I think I have to end this post for now. So that's part of my Hong Kong trip and I might write some more about it in the future if I get anymore inspiration like today. Well not inspiration actually, more like being bored in office with nothing to do. Cheers!
