991. That's the number that we Malaysian supposed to dial when we are faced with:
- Some sort of physical attack that could endangered our lives, the lives of our loved one, the lives of other people.
- When being robbed or followed.
- When being harassed.
- When someone we know is having a medical emergency (ie: heart attack)
- When witnessing a horrible accident.
- When a building caught on fire.
- When a person caught on fire.
- When you yourself caught on fire.
- Any other kind of things or events or situations that could be considered as an EMERGENCY.
Not in any moment or in any of that was listed above did it state that calling up the fire department asking whether the personnel in charged have had his lunch is considered an emergency...but sadly it does happen. And according to Star online.com, in Johor alone the number of prank calls made to the civil defence department was 43,310 out of the 45,539. Which bring me to conclusion is that even though that all the other immature people from all the other states make prank phone calls but Johor takes the cake in the stupidity and the totally-have-nothing-to-do-with-their-time trophy.
People have to understand that calling up civil defence for pranks is highly stupid. STUPID. if someone else who in dire need in help calls but cant get through coz someone with the IQ of minus 750 is on the phone making stupid prank calls. Its not funny. Its pathetic. It must stop.
Its pissing me off.

Lets talk about the Da Vinci Code. The book and the movie. It basically about how Jesus was just a man, albeit a mystical man who married a woman named Mary Magdalene and hence the godly bloodline lives on. So the super controversial reason of this movie is that according to the bible, Jesus never married and that Mary Magdelene was a prostitute. How could the bloodline of Jesus, the son of god lives on through the womb of a prostitute? Blasphemy...so they say.
So before Brown ever came on the scene and before he even wrote the book there's these two guys - the aforementioned authors- who did their research regarding the bloodline of Jesus and wrote the book "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail". The funny thing is that when Brown's book reached the best seller list, there was no accusation made towards them. When the book made it into the big screen than only the court case came around. Its as seem that they have just been waiting around for the best opportunity to get the best money from Brown. Guess they did the wrong calculation coz last i checked its not Brown who's stuck with a 6 million ringgit bill.
Whatever it is, The Da Vinci Code was a good story. And on the question on who is on the right in this particular case?... have to say that I'm on neutral ground. But one thing for sure is that the book rocks while the movie sucks.

According to the article, there's this little girl who likes the Yellow Guys so much that she actually wrote a letter to DiGi asking to meet that. And the people at DiGi, and when i say the people at DiGi, i mean their shrewd PR people actually see it an opportunity. When an opportunity knock on the door, you answer it. So what they did is that they send 2 of those Yellow Guys to follow the little girl- aged 7- to school and of course there are other DiGi people as well there giving out goodie bags for the other kids. The Yellow Guys also did some dance for teh kids, i bet the kids had such a ball with the Yellow Guys and hence would forever be brainwashed.
Think about it, now all them will come home and tell their parents and say that they want their own Yellow Guys and that if they already using a mobile phone i bet they will harassed the parents to chage their mobile network operator to DiGi. Dude, don't you see it? DiGi is sooo brilliant its diabolical. They strike when the kids are still small and at that Very impressionable age and now they probably have hundreds of adoring kids that would grow up to become loyal customers. Think about it. When i was in kidergarten they made me dance the twist dressed up as a Flapper ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flappers) and hence begin my lifelong obsession with flappers so much so that i wish that i was born in the 20ties back when the Flappers were paving their way and dressed as a flapper every time there's a costume party.
Don't you think that this isbrilliant marketing plan? I do. I think DiGi has a fabulously creative PR and Marketing people that are working for them. And for that i say brava.

Right upon reading the heading; the only thing that struck me was indifference. (corrupted policemen? So whats new again?)The one thing that was amusing to me was the fact that there was only TWO (out of the thousands) that was nabbed. That doest even come close to solving anything, and when i say solving anything i mean the corruption in the police force these days.
Take for instance this particular case:
" Insp Emie Riza Ismail pleaded not guilty to six counts of procuring or accepting bribes worth RM22,000 including a Nokia 7610 . Emie, 30, allegedly sought and accepted bribes from Che Razali Che Long as a condition to secure the release of Mohd Rapi Mat Zain, Mohd Ali Mat Zain, Mohd Qaurul Aswadi Mohd Zain and Bahari Ahmad who were detained at the Bachok district police headquarters for alleged involvement in illegal gaming activities on July 2."
The policeman 'allegedly sought and accepted bribes....as a condition to secure the release of...', hence the whole mention of power play.He was in the position of power to let those suspects out, he could do it the right way but decided that he wants to get something out of it. Something other than that paycheck at the end of the month and that was his downfall. His abuse of power. The other case involves yet another policeman on the charge on a RM200 bribery. Same story, different players.
What i really wanna know is, when is this ever gonna end? These cases mention here are just small fish compared to what we know are going on so again, i ask when is it gonna end? And who's gonna end it? The cops themselves? Pointless. The politicians? Even more pointless. The people? A revolution? Perhaps....but not in Malaysia. We're too happy and satisfied with the way we are and that we cant even get off our asses to make a stand for something. Or anything.
Living life with rose-tinted glasses on, that's the Malaysian way.

Anyways, i found sooo many amusing quotes that i just have to share. I mean, its hilarious:
“Malaysian drivers are not good in safety routines,” he said. “They don't even stop to look left and right or look in the rear view mirror. "
Okay first of all that's BS okay, if they do not look left and right then we will having accidents ALL the time, as it stands we only have accidents half of the time. I mean i can honestly speak for the right of Malaysian drivers, especially the F1 wannabes out there that we do look in the mirror...sometimes. Therefore i think that its completely unjustified of them to stereotype people just like that. Its uncalled for. I for one am insulted. Insulted i tell you.
“They are also bad in giving ample time to others and this is an example of non-defensive driving."
Bad in giving ample time to others? Okay this one i agree with coz i think the hidden meaning in this context is that people just don't signal before turning into a junction. Yes, you know who you are, you Bastards. Fortunately i am not one of them, this of course is not because i was born into being a law-abiding-citizen-driver but because when i first started driving and my mom was training me she always scream at me when i didn't signal. And whenever i don't signal these days i can still hear her screams....
"“Maybe these drivers just never realised how simple it is to avoid accidents.”
Dude, that statement is too stupid, I'm not even gonna comment on it. Honestly.
AND now for the finale, the best and the most hilarious thing i have heard this whole month...drum roll please....
"“We want a culture of defensive driving in Malaysians, which means everyone who drives will have safety as a priority – and not only when there is a traffic policeman present ,” he added. "
Its the last part that kills me all the time: “– and not only when there is a traffic policeman present". HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! THAT'S TOO FUNNY!!! i mean i know its true but that's the irony in it ain't it? Yeah we Malaysian drivers only behaved when we see the policemen but do stupid road rage shit when they're not around. I'm not saying that they way Malaysian drives drive are right but its the way we drive that's also a part of our culture that all of us could agree on other than our love for Mamak food. I dunno about you guys, but whenever i hear a foreigner say that it gives him the hibbie-jibbies to drive on Malaysian road on account of how We drive...it makes me proud.

What i really wanna say that i feel that its ironic that Malaysia's pride and joy and actually the current hometown of our uhh....beloved prime minister and those that come after him (if there is any at this rate), lives actually have this kind of problem. Now now i know, landslide. Its Mother Nature. Who could predict Mother Nature, she's temperamental. She's moody. She's a woman. But get this: according to Bernama.com the landslide could be caused by and i quote:
" On complaints from residents of a leaking pipe from a water tank on the nearby hill since last year, and could be the cause of the landslide, Tengku Adnan said he was awaiting the report from the Public Works Institute Malaysia."
Interesting how they could led water leaking in Putrajaya. Purtajaya people, PUTRAJAYA. But then these are the types of things that we should come to expect from this country. Big talk, big dreams, shit maintenance. Its true. You know that as much as i do. And on a gentler note, i wanna say all the best for the people who were involved with this landslide. I'm sorry that you have lost your place to live, belongings and perhaps loved ones as well. I am very sorry for that. If there is any charity drive that's going to come up as a result of this i will definitely joined up.
