A better tomorrow

Thousand words fused together without being concise nor precise
All but a mere implication of a better tomorrow
Leaving anxious doubt unanswered
Forerun an unbearable indignant
That one,who couldn't stand the agony
Is left alone in front of a shattered mirror
With hands of suicide attempt
Before the mirror that used to suffuse with hope
Hope that promised happiness and bliss
Is now shadowing the different pieces of broken glass
That another,wish to revive the hope again
An effort tougher than binding shattered glasses with glue
Task alongside a vovage to the moon
Obliges devotion and sacrifice
And also a life for and exchange of the hope
That another has fatigue a sportsman would challenge
But an unchallenged desire to repent
To compensate the loss caused
Never change
A poem still an implication of a better tomorrow
With thousand words that need to be deciphered
And dreams to be made realised.


Long time didn't write sissy poem edi...haha.

Malaysian Dilemma

By Ronnie Liu Tian Khiew

As a Malaysian, you are either well-informed or ill-informed. That’s because the ruling government controls all the mainstream media and they decide what to print or air to the Malaysian public, but those with their own mind wanted to know more and they seek information and news from the Internet portals.

The future of this country depends on the well-informed citizens. But the ill-informed have been helping the ruling elites directly and indirectly to retain their power. And sadly but true, they outnumbered the well-informed by no less than 20%. And this was reflected in every general elections.

Malaysians are now troubled by rising crime rates, institutionalised corruption, abuse of powers, sluggish economy, escalating religious unrests and widespread racial slurs under a terribly weak leadership. The prime mnister of this country holds two other important Cabinet positions and yet he loves to travel overseas for holidays and vacations. Not vey much… it’s 84 occasions in the last 45 months. He has just gone on leave again (honeymoon?) soon after he came back from the Europe. He even tried to keep it as a secret.

Malaysians in general are now living in a grace period. Very soon, this nation will turn from a net oil exporter into a net oil importer by year 2010. Both the Petronas chief and a Cabinet minister have confirmed it. Without the oil money (some RM67.6 billion before tax for the year 2006), can the ruling elites still afford the massive bailouts for their cronies and the ‘white elephants’ all over the country?

The ruling elites have rotten to the core. As long as they continue to rule, there would be no future for this country.

As a way out, the well-informed citizens have wanted a change of government but this was not possible because they were smaller in numbers than the ill-informed. Plus the fact that the ruling power have been resorting to cheating, intimidating and buying support from the voters, both in general and by-elections.

To change the government also calls for a united opposition. But the opposition was divided by some ‘unnecessary’ conflicting ideologies and divisive elements. That adds to the frustration of many well-informed Malaysians. They have complaining about lack of viable alternatives. Can the opposition leaders continue to ighore the stark realities before them? No party interest can be bigger than the people’s interest.

It’s always a daunting task to transform the ill-informed into well-informed. They are people who accepts whatever printed in the newspapers. Some even refuse or no time to read the newspapers.

Many are reluctant to go to the Internet media to seek the true picture. And it’s almost impossible to get them to attend political gatherings, forums and talks. The fear of ISA, OSA and the special branch is still very real to these people.

The ruling elites know it too well and that’s why they have no qulams to black-out the media and use the police to cripple the activities of the oppostion parties. And all university lecturers and students were stifled by the draconian Universities and University Colleges Act.

On top of all that, you have an Election Commission which behaves more like a component party to the ruling coalition. That makes it extremely difficult to unseat the ruling incumbents.

But we must never lose hope in ourselves. The opposition parties and NGOs finally realise the importance of electoral reforms in order to make a change of government a possibility. Bersih is formed under this political bachdrop and deserves the support and endorsement of every thinking Malaysian.

Personally, I hope Bersih can step up its activities to reach out to all Malaysians, both in the rural and urban centres. It’s through proper education and effective awareness campaigns that we have a chance to turn the ill-informed into well-informed.

It’s time for the royalty to take a serious look at the electoral system if the ruling elites refuse to adopt any reforms to perpetuate their power by risking the future of its entire nation. Democracy may not be a perfect political system. But we have not seen a prosperous and progressive nation that shuns the democratic process.

For true democracy to flourish in this country, I strongly suggest that Bersih must take the case to HRH Yang diPertuan Agong. And His Royal Highness certainly has the influence and power to help shape the future of this nation.

Powerslide...tenaga bergelingsir

The trailer looks persuasive. Malaysia's own fast and furious? Can you believe that? It's like Lord of the Ring local version, Tuan Punya Cincin.

Anyway, I might consider watching this show because it has drifting in it. What impressed me is that they hired local drifter to act in the show plus a myraid collection of drift cars tuned by D1GP mechanic. However, this might not sound "promoting" for the show as I notice the CG was vividly poor. Pay attention to those car that the drifters was "obliged" to dodge in the show.

The show consist a group of good cast. I've been catching up with Malay movies and frankly the main character and the antagonis,is one hell of an actor.They won many award for Malays series.

Support local movie? You make the call.

The great global warming swindle

Battle of the sexes : Missed calls

A woman wanted to reach her husband on his mobile phone but discovered that she was out of credit. She instructed her son to use his own phone to pass across an urgent message to his daddy who was on site.

After Junior had called, he got back to Mummy to inform her that there was a woman that had answered Daddy's phone the three times he tried reaching Dad on the mobile.

She waited impatiently for her husband to return from work and upon seeing him in the driveway, she rushed out and gave him a tight slap, and then she slapped him again, for good measure!

the neighbours rushed around to find out what the cause of the commotion was. Mummy asked Junior to tell everybody what the lady said to him when he called.

Junior said, "The subscriber you have dialed is not available at present. Please try again later..."

transformers reviewed.

I'm posting this here because I believe this blog has a wider audience ( and more fans of the transformers movie) and also because I already posted 2 posts on the other blog.

Read this link baby. Finally, a review of Transformers that I can agree to. Finally, one that doesn't make me doubt my sanity.

Pergi baca and wake up.


Warning though, you may not want to read the rests of his posts. Not for the weak minded. Read at your own risk.

The Malay Male is one of the blogs that I read daily. He is smart, funny,blunt and obscene.

Another realization

Earlier today I went to that place they do Mykad. I don't know what the place is called. It seems(I found out this while applying for my passport) that my Mykad is not a Mykad. I've been under false impression that I own a Mykad.

You see,if your Mykad doesn't have the word Mykad at the top part on the front side of your Mykad, it's not a Mykad. It's some other card. You, as a Malaysian , must own a Mykad, not Someotherkad.

Anyway, there I was, waiting for my turn to be called, when I saw two kids walking around. They were the walking baby type you know, probably between 1 to 2 years old. That phase when the baby has just started walking.

Anyway, I've always wondered how come babies at this age have such nice big butts. I'm somebody who is envious of good butts because I have none. I am Mr.No Butt. And I have also always wondered how come by the time they reach 3-4 years old, the nice big butt suddenly disappears. I mean, funny right?

Where does it go to? Every other body part gets bigger, but the butt disappears, only to appear later in teenage years. What happens? I've never read anything about it in my Bio books or whatever. What dumb hormones takes away our nice lil butt (and in my case never return it)?

This thought has plagued me for so long, just like 'does God exist?' and 'why the heck do people wake up before 12pm?'

Then, as I looked at the kids and started wondering again, I made a major discovery.

Those freaking kids have no big butts. They wear diapers underneath their shorts. Thus they seem to have big butts. I have been tricked all these long!


Now I have to face the truth that I probably never had a butt, instead of it being taken away when I was young by some dumb hormones.

Engineer has better luck with women

Advantage 1: Secured lifestyle

An engineer boyfriend can provide you with a secure lifestyle. At 27 years old, an engineer probably has a respectable, stable job that gives him a high income to own a car, invest, have a comfortable life, and get married and buy a house too.
Law graduates are still working as a lowly apprentice in law firm, most management graduates have just failed on their first business plan, the arts graduate is still looking for a job, and the medical school graduate is still living in a hospital.

Advantage 2: Unmatchable industriousness

An engineer boyfriend will dedicate an unimaginable amount of his time and effort to understand you. Engineers strain really really hard to understand their work. You can believe that they will try really really hard to understand women too, just like how they understand their work, once they believe that you are the one. So even if they don't understand you initially, they will keep on trying. Even if they still do not understand, they will figure out the correct method to keep you happy ( e.g. buy diamond ring = 1 week's worth of happiness.) And once they find out the secret formula, they will just keep on repeating it so that the desired results appear.

Unlike the Lawyer who will argue with you, the Management graduate who will try to control your spending, the Arts graduate who will 'change major', and the medical school graduate who will operate on you. And you know what, it's really so easy to make engineers believe that you are the 'one'. Say that you like one of their projects and they will be hooked to you forever.

Advantage 3:

An engineer boyfriend will never betray your trust. Let me first tell you what is wrong with the rest of the others -
the lawyers will lie about everything, management graduates will cheat your money, the arts graduate will flirt, and you probably just look like another cadaver to the medical school graduate.

Your engineer boyfriend is either too busy to have an affair, and even if he does, he is too dumb to lie to you about that.

Hence, an engineer is the most secure boyfriend that you will ever find - rich enough, will keep on trying to
understand and please you, has no time for affairs, and too dumb to lie to you. So girls, why procrastinate?

Get an engineer as your boyfriend!

Phantom of the Opera punya pengikut?

V for Vendetta is one cool shit movie you must watch. (Okay I know I might be too late for this show but what the heck right?)

A story that denotes conspiracy suffuse around the modern government and how manipulation is being made by the elite to control its power within the people. It was marvellous. Tears rolled down at the end of my watching,clearly no thanks to its greatest orchestra hits being tailored since the beginning of the movie.

A show truely deserve a standing ovation for its incorporation of Macbeth artistic poetry in the dialogue.

The dialogue that instilled in me the most was the sentence filled with V's

"...valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanguish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of vilition..."

In nutshell, the story revolve from a government that has funded a research creating a deadly virus which transgressed the sacrifices of nearly 10,000 people just to acquire the absolute selling right over the antidote they've created out of the experiment.

Don't you just love the cynical mask? It turns me on so badly.Sorry for the bad movie review yar...I'm suck at it. Anyway, it's worth buying an original copy for this movie.
