10:03 am - Hey guys, here's a plan for Friday!

I got this from this FB group: Kami Anak Malaysia Menentang Keganasan

15 January 2010, Jumaat: Wear something blue, red, white or yellow (as in, the colours of our flag) to show that even if we won't say anything, violence is never the answer.

Spread the word guys. We can't let bullies dominate the public space!

7:14 pm - Lost License! Help?

Hi people..I have a question. If we lose the 2nd half of our driving license, you know the updated piece with the expiry date without out photo, can we get it replaced by getting another one printed at the postoffice, as you would normally do when you renew it at the postoffice?

As opposed to going to JPJ if you had lose your actual license with the photo ID?

I'm not in Malaysia at this point and wont be back for a year and was hoping one of my family members could do it for me. Any ideas?

11:12 am - Urgent Help Needed: TV Shows Survey

Hi Hi there,

Rachel here~ :) I have a huge favour to ask of you, if possible. And it'll only take like, 3 minutes maybe. Or even less.

I'm currently interning at a production house (company) and I need to collect data on what kind of TV shows Malaysians like to watch. I need lots and lots of it, and responses from various age groups and races, as long as they're Malaysians. :D So I've created a survey online (at a rather dodgy looking or rather very funny name for a survey website) and it'll be great if you can leave your answers/responses/comments all there.

The link: http://bit.ly/62ueOu

I would need to hand this in by Friday morning, so if you receive this after Friday morning at 9PM (Malaysian time), you can just ignore it. Also, if you're seen my links or posts on FB or wherever and have left your answer there, I'm sorry but could you go to the website and click on the options. It'll be easier to ...tabulate (?) the data. :)

Thanks so much!

Much loves,

P/S If possible, do forward it out to any of your friends and family. Thanks so much again! :)

7:29 pm - Batu Seremban moves

So, do you guys remember what we called the different challenges for batu seremban? I can remember the challenges, just not what they're called. I'm thinking of making myself a batu seremban set and playing for fun, just to keep my hand in.

5:14 pm - Cyber Cafes around PJ/KLCC


Just wanted to ask if anyone know of any decent CCs (good server connection, keyboards and mouse not all koyak, not too expensive) near the KLCC area (where I work) or near the PJ-Jalan Gasing area (where I live) that has the following games?
  • Bionic Commander
  • Left 4 Dead
  • Killing Floor
And does anyone wanna play with me? =D Would be nice to have a decent team to play with. I'm not brilliant, but can hold my own in the latter 2 games, and am trying to get better at BC. Tired of getting fragged by my pals back home!

6:25 pm - Get a load of this!


I apologize for those of you who have read this, but this was the laugh of the day.
KUALA TERENGGANU: Body odour, humdrum sex and boring pyjamas have been blamed for the high divorce rate in Terengganu and the state government is coming up with innovative ways to improve sexual relations, especially among newly-weds.

Top on its list is to invite cosmetic firms to introduce exotic and sensuous fragrances that can arouse sexual desire.

And husbands and wives are being encouraged to bathe together.

10:19 pm - Recs for blogs written in BM

I am writing an analysis on the Malaysian blogosphere as pop culture, and while I am pretty familiar with the English language blogs (which imho can be summarized as Kenny Sia and Co), I was wondering whether anyone can point me in the right direction to blogs written in BM (sadly, I can't speak either Mandarin/ other Chinese dialects or Tamil). Only informal non-serious "pop culture" blogs that can give some insight into Malaysian life may apply. The more rant-y (but not political rant-y), the better. Thank you!

4:24 pm - What up, Malaysians?

Just wanted to do a quick check, especially among Malaysians under 25:

Does the name Che Siti Wan Kembang or Puteri Saadong mean anything to you?

Without referring to Wikipedia, if the names DO ring a bell, do you still remember where you first heard them and in what context? Thanks!

Crossposted to my journal too. :3

current mood: curious

 Hey all, just wanted to ask if any of you knew where to get Tend Skin. It's a sort of aftershave, except more for, um...legs and other body parts, I guess? Here's a link if it can help jog anyone's memory: Totally Worksafe.

Would totally appreciate any tips y'all can offer me!

10:52 am - Do you think durians smell awful?

If someone asked you to describe the smell of a durian, what do you say?

Do you say "horrible" (or some other negative word) and eat it anyway? Or do you say "awful" and just don't eat it? Or, if you love it, do you justify how it smells to someone completely unused to the smell?

What the hell is going on in this country???

And why are these bloody idiots making fun of something that is not funny at all???

Where's the riot police now? Where's the ISA? And Najib DARES to talk about 1Malaysia? They blame Indians for trying to disrupt the so-called "racial harmony" in Malaysia, but seriously have you seen any Indians doing these things?

I don't believe in race, but a lot of people in Malaysia do. And you know that the Government is doing a hell of a job when Hisham is making jokes while talking about an issue that is clearly sensitive to a lot of people.

I don't know folks... what are your thoughts? I know I'm pissed off.

current mood: pissed off

12:17 pm - What was this movie?

This Chinese (well, Hong Kong, more accurately, I think) movie has been seared in my memory, but I have no idea which movie it is.

This is a wuxia movie. I don't remember much of the plot of the story, except that the first time(?) the hero shows up he is drinking strong alcohol from a bottle and drops a scorpion into the bottle to make the alcohol stronger. The main plot involves a whole score of characters fighting against an an oppressive and evil organization. The 'good guys' side an organization called the Sun-Moon Sect.

I remember that at the end, the Sun-Moon Sect triumphs, but ends up becoming the same force of evil that the previous organization was. In one scene the good guys turn away from a group of people chanting "The Sun-Moon Sect, the Sun-Moon Sect" in the background, while someone says something to the effect of 'we arrive at the same place we started out in the end'. The remaining heroes decide to leave the country for good.

If I am not mistaken this movie is where the 'Long pau, long ngau' song comes from. The ending credits is set against a scene of waves crashing against a cliff.

What was this movie?

Crossposted to personal journal and whatwasthatone.

Edit: I found it! It's Swordsman 2. Sorry, weak Google-fu.

1:33 pm - Support The Nut Graph!

Hey everyone,

Just like to pass on this message; The Nut Graph, one of our local online news sites (and a very good one, imho) is currently seeking financial support to continue. Please please consider lending your support to this organisation.

The article: The Nut Graph needs your support.

If you're wondering, what's so notable about this site, well, here's a sampling of their articles:

Kosmo's Offence
The latest of irresponsible and unethical reporting was in Kosmo!'s 27 July 2009 edition that front-paged celebrated filmmaker Yasmin Ahmad who passed away from a stroke the day before. The story in itself had a journalistic logic to it. It was for a section called Di Sebalik Berita. It interviewed people who knew Yasmin previously, in another life. It described who she was before she became an acclaimed, award-winning film maker.


The problem wasn't the lack of journalistic rigour or even shortage of empathy involved, as one protest letter against the Kosmo! report pointed out. The problem was the lack of journalistic ethics involved in both the Kosmo! and the Mangga Online reports.

Problems in Penang
The PR state government in this northern state recently came under fire from Kampung Buah Pala villagers over their impending eviction. The villagers are aided by sympathisers, including the influential Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), and the state government's image has no doubt suffered a battering.

But even before this, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's administration provided detractors plenty of fodder to speculate that PR would unravel. The resignation of Deputy Chief Minister 1 Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin and the subsequent Penanti by-election to find his replacement was informative of the political tension within the state.

Rethinking Malaysia's sodomy laws
THEY'RE colonial relics, they're rarely invoked, and other Asian countries have effectively taken them off the books. But because Malaysia's sodomy laws are tangled up in politics and religion, they're probably not going anywhere for a while.

How Losing Might Help the BN
BARELY 48 hours after the Barisan Nasional (BN) was nearly brought to its knees in the March 2008 elections, Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the coalition would "learn its lesson" and "improve".

Nearly 16 months after that fateful general election, Malaysians can be forgiven for being confused. Political temperatures have been rising, not cooling. Even a quick listing of the major political events in this period would leave any citizen breathless: the second round of sodomy charges against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim; the BN's controversial Perak takeover; the targeting of Selangor exco Elizabeth Wong's private life to discredit her; the unity government talks between Umno and PAS; and the dizzying succession of seven by-elections.

Do Quotas For Women Work?
PARTI Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)'s 30% quota for women in leadership positions is the first of its kind in any Malaysian political party. But in the grand scheme of things, it's also 14 years late.

Malaysia signed the Beijing Declaration and the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (Cedaw) in 1995. One of the commitments in these declarations was the 30% quota for women's representation.

Today, Malaysia still has a long way to go before it meets this goal.
