Calling all gays...

(CNN)The Food and Drug Administration has lifted its lifetime ban on accepting blood donations from men who have had sex with men.
"The FDA is changing its recommendation that men who have sex with men (MSM) be indefinitely deferred . . . to 12 months since the last sexual contact with another man," the administration announced Monday.
This final guidance from the FDA is the culmination of several years of scientific research as well as consultation with external advisory committees and other government agencies.

"We have taken great care to ensure this policy revision is backed by sound science and continues to protect our blood supply," FDA Acting Commissioner Stephen Ostroff, M.D. said.
The lifetime ban of blood donations from gay and bisexual men was implemented by the FDA in 1983 at the start of the AIDS crisis, when little was known about the spread of the disease.
"The United States government has to stop reacting to HIV like it is the early 1980s," said Kelsey Louie, CEO for Gay Men's Health Crisis said. GMHC is the nation's leading provider of HIV and AIDS care.

"It is time for the FDA to implement a policy that is truly based on science, not blanket bans on certain groups of people," Louie said.
In 2006, the AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks), America's Blood Centers and the American Red Cross said in a joint statement that the lifetime MSM blood-ban was "medically and scientifically unwarranted" and urged the FDA to modify blood donation policies so they are "comparable with criteria for other groups at increased risk of sexual transmission of transfusion transmitted infections."
The Human Rights Campaign called the change a "step in the right direction," but said the new policy, "still falls short of a fully acceptable solution because it continues to stigmatize gay and bisexual men."

Dr. Peter Marks, deputy director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said the yearlong celibacy requirement for MSM is supported by scientific evidence relevant to the U.S. population.
"In reviewing our policies to help reduce the risk of HIV transmission through blood products, we rigorously examined several alternative options, including individual risk assessment," Marks said.

In addition to changing the lifetime ban for homosexual and bisexual men donating blood, the FDA also made recommendations regarding "donor educational materials, donor history questionnaires and accompanying materials, as well as donor requalification and product management procedures," the release said.
Part of the donor history questionnaire asks that transgender individuals self-identify and self-report for the purpose of blood donation.

Malaysia's political mob of sheep.

Embedded image permalinkEmbedded image permalink

Mob of sheep baa-baaing their leader, although the leader is leading them to deep shit hole.
Oh wait...he's innocence until proven guilty right?
Yeah, who can blame them. They might be paid to get all so enthusiastic to the guy (their leader) whom had, for the love of dignity, being called to New York for an investigation of large 'meddling' of a sovereign wealth fund that he oversees. SUCH A SHAME!!
And local sheep would not want to accept the reality of it. Maybe half of them don't even read out of their mainstream.

Just so you sheep know; and I will repeat it again and again --your beloved protagonist was couple of months ago had to kowtow to American's Justice Department that investigates international corruption.
Although these Americans doesn't give a bull and crap about what's going on in your own backyard, they are actually acting after receiving some brave men reports and is focusing on properties in the US that were purchased in recent years by shell companies that belong to his stepson as well as other real estate connected to a close family friend.

Investigators are also looking at a $681 million payment made to what is believed to be his personal bank account.

I have had a couple of occasions during 'touching-base' visit to extended family; normal chit chat led to political talk.
Mind you in  both occasion; these are people who i) very active in real politics and is close to some people up there; and ii) who is quite close to those who run (not technically) one state of the country.
The fact that both do not know about supplemental stories of his (Najib) stepson extravagant lifestyle and activities back in the States and NOT even knowing about the super-complete-of-all- vices movie The Wolf of Wall Street; it got me thinking what do these people actually know.
To what extend is their exposure of the real goingons?
Or is it because they are being the typical "frog underneath coconut shell" (this is my direct translation to the Malay proverb which means frog which stays under a coconut shell will think that the shell is their world -- even though we know that frog DO NOT live under a coconut shell. For whatever reason behind the proverb-- sometimes I think Malay people those days do not do lots of research before creating a good useful proverb) Thus the frog will live life without any  knowledge of things or happenings outside of it's 'world' and remains ignorant but is happy with it.

The most astonishing part was remark from one of them; who is the one that's quite active politically -- his claim of the current economy and people are happy and everything is well and okay (with an absolute proud UMNO face) got me taken aback. Really.

Truth be told. He was so darn oblivious.
Perhaps that views were the actual representation of 'voices' of those majority out of the city people.
They don't live life driving on jammed packed roads daily. Paying high tolls everywhere eventhough the roads are still jammed up for the sake of getting home to families if not the caretaker will charge extra for late pick-ups.
They do not have to pay high rental houses or small flats to stay nearer to their workplace, they do not have to pay extra 30 percent for raw food or even cooked food from stalls and restaurants in their vicinity and they obviously won't feel a pinch when their houses were in walking distance to minimart and market or banks in their small teeny weeny little kampung.
And I bet their full tank of petrol can lasts him two weeks or more -- Let me say this to them -- "People like you are the reason why scumbags like Najib and other delusional ministers survived in this country!! "...

Really.

Privacy -- Part II

Image result for facebook picture with handcuff
Beware of what you share.
Talk about privacy...again.

If you ever sometimes feels somebody or something is snooping you in private..think again. It might not be your paranoia.
It might be your nemesis...or your wannabes even your secret admirer. But here's the news -- it might be some 'superpower' checking in on you and what you post.

I have been quite very very careful commenting on goings here in this country..(I refused to even spell the country's name just in case ). What more after the latest law had seen some victims having no-escape route to it.
To date there had been more than four person being held by the police because they;

 1) snap a photos of an accidents involving some local punks (dead in the accident...yayyy) and published it over the net

 2) another one had been (maybe now enjoying) her meals behind bars after she sent WhatsApps messages to her landlord cursing and degrading him because the latter asked her to moved out of the rented house.

Now...don't you think it is so darn easy to get free meals here in this country?...It does.
Thus why I am more than careful here....You see...I have LOADS of things I wanted to tell and write and shoutabout...but I'm practicing 'abstinence' in order for my partner to be able to continue his profession here...hah hah.

Anyway, just one more latest news on our raped privacy via online.

In the US, two senators introduced a bill that would enforce social media firms such as Facebook and Twitter, to warn law enforcement when they detect terrorist activity on their platforms.

They suggested that if they (the companies) become aware of terrorist activity in any form, they have the obligation to report that information to law enforcement.
While they claimed that the companies would not be required “to monitor customers or undertake any additional action” and the bill is not a way to criminalise free speech, I would think it is a sorta handcuffing us in some way or another.

Que sera sera.....

Malaysia -- Too Much Monkey Business ...

The truth will prevail...one day.


.
 It's a shame when political party being led by some desperate scoundrel that has no qualms in using his authoritative power and using draconian method hoping to silence those who dare to voice out against their abuse of power.

Worst when hundreds of other scoundrels rallying behind him sniffing his ass.

The Malay political party of Malaysia; UMNO which commence their yearly general assembly today will be witnessing something out of the ordinary and certain things that had never been done before will be take place.
It seems the security will be much tighter...God knows why.
But, forget all those. The most important thing that have been carried on for so long will be the speech by both the President and the Deputy.
However, this time the Deputy -- who is also the sacked Deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin will not be given the privillege to do so. But why?
We must ask.
What does a cabinet post has anything to do with party post?

 The General Assembly which will run until 12 December will unfortunately, time and again witnessing ass-licker, yes-man and robots congregation. Nothing more than that.
If there had been too many issue with the President who is also the prime Minister of the country..if what ever baloney that he and his sheep had been failing to cover up because it was too obvious -- boycott the assembly!

But again, who how many on earth will have the guts voicing out against some super power (so they thought).

Nonetheless, Muhyiddin, trusting his honesty will somehow garnered acceptance and will be listened to,  organised his own gathering last night; a night before the general assembly.
I salute him for doing so.
The truth will prevail. This is what scares the superpower and his sheep.
I am a firm believer that the truth will definitely one day emerged somehow, somewhere. No matter how you try to hide, it show itself.

In God we trust.

Hope...

Image result for hopeHope.

This one simple and easy word can be quite perplexing.
To me it brings along with it many uncertainties.
It can be confused by either being a positive force to keep us going or on the other hand can cause detriment to those who'd hold on to it without having any reservation.

Who doesn't have hope.
Every one of us do. The difference is whether we have heap of it or just a mere one or two important ones. It is much more easier leading a life without too much of hope because hope can kill us too.

'Hope for the best and prepare for the worst'... this must be one of my favourite.
Yup. Especially when you went beyond that boundaries.
It can be both good and not so good though.
It basically telling you to always be prepared.
Being prepared is always good. Expecting the unexpected is the best tool, a safety net that would not let you fall hard on the ground.

Realistically, we will always have hope as our trump card.
That what makes life goes around and round and around again.
Without it, we can be called hopeless...or 'given up hope'..which can have it reverse effect.

I have my fair share of giving up hope.
I have had experience where things people doesn't change after a decade, or things I'm hoping for didn't materialised after years of trying; I just give up hope in seeing any changes totally.
In such case(s) there isn't any point of hoping. It will only bring us agony and dejection.

There is one very good proverbs in Bahasa Malaysia that would fit my feeling in such situations -- 'mencurah air ke daun keladi', i.e. pouring water onto a yam leaves.It simply mean the act of doing something totally pointless even after one tries many time.
especially in cultures where the plant is unknown or does not exist. In the case of this particular

Anyhow, I have another set of hope now.
Both personally and for my country that is being plague by the corrupted prime minister.

My hope for better future, for better peaceful environment and world and for better understanding of life per se.

Que sera sera....

More Monkey Business...

1383115660_ea42144e6d_zThis got me really amused.

Truthfully, I didn't know things such as what I found out today existed...I mean, with all things 'american' and with their politically-correct way of doing things and saying things -- I seriously didn't know that there are group(s) that will boycott monkey-picked coconuts!

I mean, like these people (westerners) in the first place do not have coconut in their country -- we all know that.
And for Asian, especially South East Asian, we have it in abundance -- so basically, centuries ago our ancestor just know what to do with it, and how to deal with it. And we do, do things differently than you people you know.

When it come to coconut, we Asian have been exposed to this plant ever since we know how to crawl. It is everyhwre in the village area, or by the sea, and even behind our house. We learnt in Geography how it is planted, harvested, what we can do from the leaves right up to the fruit.
Thus watching monkey picking coconut is now new.
Yes, there are people who'd climb the tree for meager fees in small small village, but it is just easily done by monkey.

And who say the monkey isn't well taken care of?
Do they made some private call to your protection office to complaint?...Duhhh....
What do you westerners expect? For the monkeys to be sheltered and have their own separate room with tv and fridge?
Darn me.

I came across this webpage after doing some digging on the past year's craze over everything coconutty.
From the milk to the flesh.
It's the current superfood it seems...I reckon we SEA, especially the Malays must be so darn healthy because we eat almost everything from main dish to deserts made with coconut milk and let me tell you -- the best 'nasi lemak' would be the one that uses the real coconut milk instead a drop or two oil by some health conscious roadside seller -- to me only spells ugly taste and greed of wanting to make profit by quelling the originality.

One thing for sure; and one thing to prove some of them are seriously oblivious to the origin of coconut milk; I read a thread and these westerners were 'debating' on how to get coconut milk naturally -- instead of buying the carton ones that might be laced by BPA thingy (again, americans paranoia) one of them suggested dig open the hull -- using drilling equipment..(har har!!  and just poke it open and put in a straw , viola one can drink the milk straight from the fruit!
Coconut milk straight on.
How oblivious can one be.
When someone who can go on the net, have access to all sort of information, if one can't make the effort to really check out what is coconut milk and coconut water -- it basically spells their nature of believing that they are smarter than others (especially non-westerners) and know everything around the world even though they haven't' set an eye on a coconut tree in their lives before.

Anyway, coming back to the webpage that have too much of a concern that monkeys are maltreated by human, they will announce name of companies that DO NOT use monkeys so concern end-users will only buy from listed organisations.
According to them "these companies engage in ethical business practices, ensuring human workers are properly compensated for their work. They do not use monkeys or human children to harvest coconuts."
 It got me laughing...again..thinking about the monkey that my dad rush to pick coconuts behind my grandmother's house couple of years ago because it was in abundance and were being left to rot -- which the monkey refused (snobbishly..yes, no joke)...and were made known later by the handler ; monkey do not appreciate any kind of remark or rushing for him to climb!...Seriously! Now, what say you...   

To those westerners.. my shout out would be  -- Hey, the monkeys aren't complaining, so why are you?! ha ha..

When a scumbag elected as a Prime Minister...

PENAFIAN hak Timbalan Presiden Umno, (Tan Sri) Muhyiddin Yassin, merasmikan persidangan Pergerakan Wanita, Puteri dan Pemuda di Persidangan Agung Umno (PAU) mulai 8 Disember ini adalah manifestasi mutakhir dua perkara.

1. Ketakutan yang semakin mendalam yang menghantui Presiden Umno merangkap Perdana Menteri, (Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone) Mohd Najib Abdul Razak dan konco-konconya.

2. Pemusnahan demokrasi, tradisi dan konvensyen Umno semata-mata kerana Mohd Najib dan konco-konconya tidak yakin terhadap sokongan perwakilan, pemerhati dan ahli parti kepada mereka.

Mereka yang besar bilangannya dan mempunyai kuasa yang luas ke atas jentera propaganda parti takut berdepan dengan seorang Timbalan Presiden yang tidak berjawatan dan tidak ada akses kepada jentera parti.


Mohd Najib ramai penyokong kenapa takut Muhyiddin seorang?
Saya mengenali Mohd Najib secara peribadi pada tahun 1977 dan Muhyiddin pada awal tahun 1980an.

Dalam tempoh itu, saya tidak pernah melihat Mohd Najib setakut sekarang dan Muhyiddin begitu ditakuti.

Realitinya, Mohd Najib tidak pernah berani atau tegas. Beliau naik kerana licik main selamat sambil dipimpin dan dilindungi oleh mentor-mentornya  – Allahyarham Tun Hussein Onn, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah dan, secara pseudo, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Muhyiddin pula bukanlah watak yang menonjol, lantang dan tegas. Dalam banyak hal beliau adalah “the second fiddle” (biola kedua).

Tetapi hakikat bahawa Mohd Najib dan keseluruhan kepemimpinan atasan Umno kini begitu takut kepada beliau amat menakjubkan.

Saya rasa Muhyiddin sendiri tidak boleh mengukur dan memahami mengapa tiba-tiba beliau begitu ditakuti.

Takut Kerana Salah...

Semua ini terjadi bukan kerana kekuatan Muhyiddin tetapi kerana kelemahan Mohd Najib.

Kedua-dua mereka bukanlah pemain catur politik yang hebat. Seperti majoriti penggiat politik Umno sekarang, mereka tidak mempunyai karisma dan “killer instinct”.

Mereka bukan dalam kategori mahaguru politik seperti Allahyarham (Datuk) Harun Idris, (Tun) Mohammad Ghazalie Shafie dan Tan Sri Syed Jaafar Albar serta Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Anwar dan (Tan Sri) Sanusi Junid.

Dalam keadaan biasa, Mohd Najib dan Muhyiddin sama kuat atau sama lemah. Tetapi dalam keadaan sekarang, Mohd Najib nampak lebih lemah.

Oleh sebab itulah beliau memerlukan perlindungan daripada kepemimpinan atasan Umno dan jentera pentadbiran negara untuk berdepan dengan Muhyiddin.


Muhyiddin tidak cintakan PM lagi, sebaliknya...
Kita tidak perlu bertanya pujangga dan pendeta untuk mengetahui mengapa Muhyiddin dilucutkan jawatan kerajaan dan disekat daripada berkomunikasi dengan ahli parti di PAU.

Jawapannya satu sahaja. Muhyiddin mempunyai soalan-soalan sah (legitimate questions) mengenai hal-hal yang disembunyikan daripada ahli parti atau yang dibohongi kepada mereka.

Soalan-soalan mengenai 1MDB, SRC International, “derma” RM2.6 bilion dalam akaun peribadi Mohd Najib dan pemecatan serta tindakan disiplin ke atas ahli parti yang mengkritik Mohd Najib.

Mohd Najib dan konco-konco tidak yakin bahawa penjelasan mereka kepada ahli Majlis Tertinggi, ketua-ketua bahagian dan cawangan serta ahli parti dalam perjumpaan-perjumpaan tertutup diyakini sepenuhnya.

Mereka takut soalan-soalan Muhyiddin dan ketua-ketua cawangan yang berani akan membuka mata perwakilan sehingga menyebabkan mereka mengubah pendirian.

Pokok pangkalnya Mohd Najib dan konco-konconya takut dimalukan. Mereka takut kena sorak, kena herdik dan kena sindir. Paling mereka takuti adalah Muhyiddin dan para pengkritik Mohd Najib akan mendapat tepukan gemuruh. Atau penunjuk perasaan di luar dewan membawa sepanduk mengenai 1MDB dan “derma” RM2.6 bilion.
Banyak Cara Lapah Harimau
Kalau Muhyiddin berazam dan beriltizam untuk mempertahankan demokrasi, amalan dan konvensyen Umno, beliau mempunyai banyak cara.

Dalam dunia yang dipacu oleh Internet, beliau masih boleh berkomunikasi dengan berkesan walaupun tidak lagi mempunyai akses kepada media arus perdana (MAP).

Lagipun, MAP telah hilang kewibawaan dan audiens kerana membiarkan diri mereka diperkuda oleh Mohd Najib dan konco-konconya serta kalah berulang apabila disaman oleh pembangkang.

Umno dan MAP sudah kucar-kacir. Justeru itu, adalah lebih baik bagi Muhyiddin bertindak di luar kerangka Umno dan MAP.


Muhyiddin beri sokongan moral kepada pemimpin cawangan
Dalam konteks itulah kemunculan beliau di Ibu Pejabat Umno bagi memberi sokongan moral kepada sembilan ketua cawangan Umno dalam Bahagian Telok Kemang, Negeri Sembilan yang dihadapkan kepada Lembaga Disiplin petang semalam dianggap penting.
Soal beliau menjadi tunggul di PAU tidak timbul. Kehadiran beliau di atas pentas nanti akan menjadi tumpuan dan telahan perwakilan. Gerak-geri (body language) beliau akan dibaca, diulas dan dikupas.

Kalau kamera media massa dan telefon pintar tidak diharamkan di dalam dewan, pelbagai gambar dan teks akan tersebar di ruang siber menceritakan apa yang tersurat dan tersirat.

Sebaliknya, yang terancam adalah Mohd Najib dan konco-konco beliau. Silap-silap mereka tersepak tunggul, jatuh tertiarap, muka menyembah bumi, misai terkena lumpur dan mulut dimasuki pasir.

Wallahuaklam.

******************************************************************

Honestly, no matter how I try to hold on to my believe that there will be some people in UMNO that'd have the balls and guts to really iron things out and make those bad creases created by our (not mine ) beloved Prime Minister Najib goes away, and those whom would dare to voice out their sentiments towards what ever is happening right now --what Im seeing infact were more ass-licker than true to justice people crowding and cheering their scandalous Prime Minister.

I have actually given up hope with our government ever since Najib took office. Added on with those juicy story about the controlling wife and her whims and fancies. 
There would not be any changes in the party because what moves the party ever since those nenek moyang days were the typical Melayu belief that the younger or the lower rank must respect the elder or the upper leadership. This BS mentality only applicable perhaps 40 years ago. Not now, not with people getting access to news and whatnots thru the www.

By not wanting to change and holding on to the 'we-must-respect(afraid)-of- the -leader mentality -- the Melayu won't go any far.
They will forever carry on their sheep-like mentality and the lion will forever acquire all the power without having to be afraid of those sheep objections. If sheep refuse to follow -- lion will quell them. Done.

Some of new Malays like myself look at those who enter politics as scumbags racing their way to satiate their hunger for power and money. None other than that. Not because they want to really work for their rakyat. To us they don't give a hoot about what really happen for as long as their comfortable chair and income from various businesses gain from becoming a 'somebody' goes to their banks locally and abroad without any hitches.

And perhaps there are those who really want to uphold their true leadership and perform their duties as the peoples voice -- but of course, in such a materialistic world now -- we all know those type wont make it far. And they will be the black sheep among the 'clean' whites.

So, those write up and stories about something is being done to investigate any wrongdoings by some people and monies coming and going into thin air are all mere fairytale and would not ever reach to any conclusion that you, me and others would like to see, and hope to happen;because the lion has his contingent of sheep Baa-baaing behind his back. 

Just so you know, on how encouraging is Najib's reputations now -- an Indian and his Filipino colleague came over to fix my bicycle tyre commenting on his 'credibility' and on whats going in our country after asking me where I hail from. And like always Mahathir's name will top the chart.

Now, who can deny that.

Cow-Conspirator Salleh and his family.

Mohamad Salleh, seen here with his wife Datuk Ser Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, is facing CBT charges over the misuse of funds given by the government for the expansion of the local beef industry. The Malaysian Insider pic, September 24, 2013.They can give whatever bull and crap reasons behind the acquittal of the cow-loving man Salleh Ismail, the  National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) executive chairman of two huge charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT) involving RM49.7 million but they cannot hide what is obvious.

The Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court judge Norsharidah Awang granted the man an acquittal after lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and deputy public prosecutor Syed Faisal Syed Amir met in her chambers.
Wonder what transpired....
The judge did not give the reason for her decision.

The  A-G had earlier consented to give Salleh a discharge not amounting to an acquittal following a letter of representation sent to his office couple of months back.

Salleh's lawyer said -- " his client should be freed because of special circumstances of the case, and that an acquittal should be given since the trial had started"....
What special circumstances? Cheating RM49.7 million because the cows needed to stay in condominiums instead of their usual barn?

Just so people know how manipulative Malaysian politicians can be -- His wife a member of cabinet and a full minister who claimed she din't know anything pertaining to her husban;d business affairs -- which anyone in sound mind would'nt want to claim so, since they're still living together and a husband and wife.
They (because I know husband and wife will talk and discuss how to spend their easy money) 
had 'misappropriating' RM9.76 million by four cheques from NFCorp funds to finance the purchase of two condominium units in Kuala Lumpur.
The husband was also charged with committing a similar offence by transferring RM40 million by way of a cheque to the account of the National Meat & Livestock Corporation Sdn Bhd, which he and one of his children own.

Besides trying to strike out charges against him, which failed, he is also facing two other charges relating to using company funds without the approval of an annual general meeting to make part payment for the condominium units.

I wonder what kind of goodness do they get out of stealing money from others...people without conscience.

What a shame.

No short skirts please...

Image result for short skirts picInteresting news on ways getting some ladies to learn how to dress appropriately.

In India, a female passenger was prevented from boarding a domestic flight recently.because she was showing too much leg.

I'm sure the too much leg won't be as much as the picture I attached here.. which they're showing not just too much legs but too much bottom chins..ha ha.

Anyway, yeah, i think the carrier --  IndiGo did the right thing.
It seems that her dress "had stopped above the knee" is in violation of rules issued to employees and relatives of staff.

The woman was formerly employed by the airline and was travelling on a special ticket because her sister worked for the company.

"Employees and the nominated family members are required to maintain a specific dress code, as and when they fly with the airline under the staff leisure travel privileges," read an IndiGo statement.

The lady was however allowed onto another flight later after changing her attire.

Now, everyone is happy especially those worrying wives...har har.

Bric-à-brac -- Compartmentalisation of life.

It must have been human nature, not wanting to know any one or anything, or any information besides what they effortlessly see, being told or fed with.

I have been misunderstood maybe the whole of my life since my coming of age.
Image result for loner face cartoonNope, I do not think I'm delusional or are at any point of having what they called mid-life crisis. Far from the latter definitely.

But today it just got me thinking that people love to take an easy things out in almost all aspect of their life. Without having to put an effort to learn more.
They like taking things for granted because they just not bothered to value what is in hand today might slip off tomorrow.

Maybe when I was younger in my teenage life; if I'm feeling as such, I might get to think that I am somewhat imagining things and having unhealthy thoughts about something.
But now at this juncture in my mid life -- nope; I do not for a bit think that I am delusional whatsoever.
Nope I am not having these feeling because of my resentments towards any one or any thing and that this is my subconscious mind taking charge of my emotion in retrospect.

It is just pure full of reflection of  feelings after long gathering my inner 'philosophical' turmoil besides watching how the world revolves and how human treat another human --  I came to a conclusion that I will, in my personal capacity teach my offspring on the value of appreciating and learning about anything at all. Anything.

Be it a person sleeping on the walkway, to those blind people with able limbs goes around food stalls asking for money ,to the existence of flora and faunas and the whys clouds moves like that and the moon is visible when the sun's still up; and I will teach them to never take a seat back and burying their mind and heart inquest in anything at all.

Having been misunderstood by not just people who don't really know me well because of my rebellion and a little unorthodox perception about life per se, prejudices also came from my own family members. What more the extended ones.
But all in all, having been in such conundrum and having an alternative way of expressing my thoughts (I start writing journals since 12 years of age thanks to my father)...I am quite thankful that those experiences enable me to look at life out of the norm of my society. It makes me enjoy my being as me better and help me approach from slightly different angle.

I have been bashing races, even my own ; again I would like to state here I am not that proud to be one because I am a human. I am born as a female and I will die a female, thus why race is subjective. Unlike to most who think it is really important. Perhaps for the sake of having to hang on to that particular tribe in life. Scared to be a loner. Afraid of what they themselves fail to learn.
I have had friends more from another race than mine, I have had them judging me because of my political ideology. I have had them unfriending me in Facebook because of me raising certain issues related to them or their race.

But because of who I am, I honestly am okay with it.
I do not feel the pinch of resentment because I do that too.
I have no qualms pushing the delete button in my life because those compartmentalised space in my brain are quite limited. It only will be filled with healthy, informative, spiritual concoction and I make sure I am surrounded with good energy in order for me to reach my personal legend.


                                                                   

Niqab no niqab, niqab no niqab, niqab no niqab...



What a sheer malarkey.

There was this issue in Canada surrounding the niqab during the second-longest election campaign in Canadian history.
The ruling Conservative Party - led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper has taken steps to prevent women from wearing it while taking the citizenship oath and also plans to ban the niqab during public ceremonies. Obviously it were met with much dispute.

Now, as it has always been anywhere around the world, there would be fanatics.
Why I say fanatics?...
Because only fanatics would fight for something that is not a requirement of the religion at all.
For example this niqab.

What is the relevance of covering your whole face like some loony,  or sometimes exposing a small window for your eyes to see, when in the religion per se, covering face are forbidden during praying -- a time when you bow and talk to your creator.

To those non- Muslims; you must know that God is not that stringent. Only human make the religion rigid, probably to satiate the man-dominated fatwas or lawmakers.

Niqab to me is absurd.
And men who claimed that all those women don it willingly without any force or dictation from their mahram are just baloney.

You know the country you're living in is not a Muslim country.
You know you have to abide to their laws and regulations.
You are trying to showcase your steadfastness and indirectly you are also showing those non-Muslims that you are non-compromising lots. So, can you not blame them when they conclude that Muslims are strongheaded uncompromising  people.
What comes next need not be said.

Think about it.
When your own God did not expect you to do that when facing him in your prayers, why you you then feeling too obligated to hide your face from the owrld -- and you on the other hand can look at the 'world'?.
Personally, I find women covering their face to be extremely creepy.
Im seeing them loads.
 and even frightening.

I mean, let's put your shoes in their's. The person behind the veil might be someone else.
They might be a man instead of woman.
It happens. Not a fairy tale.

As a liberal person, I have absolutely no tolerance for this extreme form of medieval religious totalitarianism.
And there are no harm sharing your face the the rest of the society.






City floating in the sky of China.


This is one sight to be seen.
I would want to have the experience to see a floating city...just like how I want to one day watch an aurora in the Arctic sky.

The 'floating city' over China's Jiangxi and Foshan scientifically are known as Fata Morgana (learning something new today), a rare type of mirage, an optical illusion caused by specific weather conditions. According to scientific explanations it occurs when the Sun heats up a layer of the atmosphere but the layer of air below it remains cool.

The occurrences was actually caused by different layers of the atmospheric temperatures that generate certain gradient, and our optical senses are playing their roles in giving us all these illusions -- although there are some skeptics who believe this was caused by China's scientists testing their stuff, or an emergence of parallel universe to something called Project Blue Beam, a conspiracy theory which involves NASA and the Illuminati and their One World order -- personally, I'm leaving a few percentage of doubt aside too.  


Anyway, while Fata Morganas are quite rare, the most common optical illusions is called Mirage. It happened in hot area such as desert or quite frequently I see here, along the 20 km stretch highways from Doha to Dukhan, Qatar.
It occurred when light waves from the sun travel straight through the atmosphere to your eye during hot weather because light travels at different speeds through hot and cold air and our brain will in return do their function accordingly.

But my question is -- from where the copy of that floating city over Jiangxi or Foshan came from?.

It must be from near city...or at least the buildings depicted over the sky must really exist nearby.

Otherwise, it is still questionable.

Bric-a-brac on life (Of Yin and Yang and Paulo Coelho).

I am in the re-reading zone currently.
Reading back books (yup, I'm a polygamist reader) that suits my current lust need of certain something.

Somehow, Paulo Coelho's repeated sentences "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it"...has been the most outstanding statement that lingers in my head.

It has been for days already.

Eventhough I have loads of post on the shilly shally juicy story of Malaysia Prime Minister's accusation of swindling large sum of public money (at one point of time last year, I told myself I am not going to gabble about politics, but I just can't resist), my inner wants still thirst for something more worthy of life and in search of ways and means to cleanse my soul. Which I assume everyone around my age group would do when the time comes -- if it come.
It's natural I guess.

And, yeah, I told my self to hell what the world and the people around me, and other corrupt inhabitants of this world and those greedy people whom greed can never be satisfied.
We human will never have enough of what we have and will always want more.

Thus why reading books that aid mental wellness is great for both the body and soul. It is vital to balance out the energy. Like the Chinese and their Yin and Yang.

I have been, in my solemn mood, questioning the fact of that particular statement -- when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it--
And to what level would it bring us achieving the something that we want.
And the medium of it.

It would be nice if it does easily.
But I do not think it will be that easy.

I might be the biggest objector to this if I were to know about it 15 years ago.
How can that be when nearly 90% of what I want to achieve at that point of time would definitely run away from me, and instead, those unwanted things or people that I wish I would not come across keeps on knocking at my door.
Yeah, I know. I should've not opened the door and let in those dark clouds in, but hey, that is life -- without it, I wouldn't learn anything at all.

In retrospect, I am ever grateful for all the bad and good things that clouded and shine my way while making my walk through this journey of imperfect but beautiful life.

Experience will result in maturity, and maturity will make us who we are.
Meeting with all sort of human behavior, watching them and getting to know them, learning from mistakes, making certain little self- achievements -- all of those are life experiences that every parents must one day teach their children.

Now, evaluating life per se, I can say there are truth behind Paulo Coelho's statement.
And yes, the universe will conspires in helping you to achieve what you want -- the only fine line that separate the good and bad is our conscience.

Que sera sera....

Najib Razak Corruption Scandal: Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad Calls For Premier To Step Down.

The distraught Najib Razak


Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is wading deeper into a corruption scandal involving current Prime Minister Najib Razak. He has ratcheted up pressure on Najib to resign and described Malaysia as “a pariah state…where anyone can be hauled up and questioned by the police, detained and charged through abusing laws of the country," the Sydney Morning Herald reported Monday. Mahathir has called for months for Najib to step down.
Accusations leveled against Najib in July alleged that he had taken $700 million from a state investment fund, the 1Malaysia Development Berhad, and deposited them into his personal bank accounts. Najib denied taking the fund’s money for personal use; and in August, the country’s anti-corruption commission cleared him of those charges, saying the money had actually come from foreign donors.

Najib explained (lied) 1MDB to US business leaders.

UMNO ONLINE
 "Bersatu Bersetia Berkhidmat & Berbodoh Bersama"



Here is what I read from  Salleh Said Keruak blog on his boss's 'brave and good intentions' moves explaining his 'wrongdoings' swindling Malaysian public money.

" In his recent trip to the United States, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak met business leaders during a meeting on business prospects in Malaysia now and in the future where he took questions from them regarding 1MDB.
So the allegation that the Prime Minister refuses to address this issue or explain the matter is not true. During a business luncheon a day earlier, Najib touched on the weakness of the 1MDB business model, which he described as too idealistic.
 Najib explained that only RM1 billion had been invested to undertake a huge property development and RM18 billion for the acquisition of power generation plants, resulting in the company having to go heavily into debt financing.
Najib then told the audience that he is confident that by the end of the year the company would be able to go through the process of rationalisation with a massive reduction of debt. Najib also informed the business leaders that there would be an announcement in the coming days regarding a significant reduction of 1MDB’s debts to the tune of RM16 billion.
Needless to say, none of this was carried by the local news portals, which seem to want to avoid talking about any good news involving 1MDB. "

Bullshits.
No doubt people are calling him ass-licker.
He would licked his bosses ass just to stay where he is now...continuing the legacy of the family; to be in power.

UMNO should change their slogan actually. One that could fit them well especially for those ass-licking cabinet ministers.

It should read -- Bersatu Bersetia Berkhidmat dan Berbodoh Bersama.
