Stop Lynas, Save Malaysia

It was a tiring day when everyone participated in the protest. If my boss approved my leave on that day, I would have joined you guys in Penang.

It's better late than never... Solo time!

Pardon the blemishes. I had my facial an hour ago.

News from TV3 and local newspapers are misleading and incomplete! This post has nothing to do with politics, but I seriously condemn the way our government operates. Lynas selamat? Najis and his whole generation together with his cronies should stay near the plant to prove us all wrong.

Darker and bigger eyes

On a different note, I just want to show my "big eyes" in my new hair. Recently my narcissism has raised to a different level to an extent I would spend on facial, colour lenses and hair colouring. My confidence is boost, I am still a 38 years old uncle nevertheless.

Perhaps the time has come...

... to learn driving on left hand.

One way up, same way down

Finally the time had come to stretch my muscle (a bit if not too much) after long absence from gym - thanks to Mel for organizing the U6BF Broga Hillwalking Expedition.

My mates were questioning my attire for the day - a grey Polo shirt, a pair of black bermudas and a pair of SLIPPERS. Are you going to KLCC or Petaling street? True. Of hundreds people there, none wore slippers like me. Equipped with only an Apple in my hand, perhaps I underestimated the challenge to conquer the summit?


Broga Hill does not possess too much risk or difficulties to conquer. Hardly broke a sweat upon reaching the top was a solid proof. The only reason I dirtied my pants was when I rested on the rock while waiting for the sun to rise. Maybe the real challenge was to pose and look natural for the camera session? No wonder I fail as a model. Or maybe the test was to stand the cold morning breeze with empty stomach and dry throat?

Taken with my Apple

Pardon the pictures if you find the above pictures suck. I am not a photographer but a biochemist who work in a bank. Though I don't shoot good photos, I am still a man, mind you!

Due to time constraint and hungry stomachs, we did not step foot on every peak. We ended the journey with trailing down the hill and lunch at Pedas-pedas Restaurant. The time with them wasn't long. I was so sleepy and quiet due to lack of sleep. Nevertheless, I certainly enjoyed the moment they shared with me. Thanks.

Happy Valentines Day. MUACKS!!!

My health status (Part 1)

Part 1, Part 2 (coming soon)

When will I die?

Only time will tell.

I was lying awake on my bed, facing the dirty ceiling. Within the white cold walls, the fan was spinning very fast. Lying right next to me was a young man catching his breath. He was grabbing his left chest tightly while his legs were kicking the air. On my left was an old man who groaned in pain more than six hours already. The bed squeaked when he vigorously rolled on the bed. The moon outside the window pane was so round and bright that a cup of latte would taste a lot better, if the sorrow sounds were never here to break the silent night.

"3030, BILIK 4!"

A dream that felt so real.

Oh... It's not 3037. I wished the doctors could hasten their speed. Then you wouldn't need to stay any longer. A wishful thought. I had no idea what to do, where to go and who to speak to. We stayed for nine hours in the hospital but all I could do was to look at you, then look away and clench my fist.

I don't think you deserve to be in this state. Not you...

Your eyes twitched in pain and it's not something I can share with. There were so many in your mind that bothered you but I couldn't help. If there is ever a way that I can alleviate your pain and misery, I will find it. But for now, accept my pat and I hope it somehow brought you comfort. I wish I could do more than this.

Perhaps you did not know - It doesn't matter what happened in the past, you have a place reserved in my heart. 'Coz you are important to me in many ways. Do you now know why I don't like you thanking me?

You have no idea how happy I was when you have chosen your health and life than your studies. Life is more important than everything else. However, if you have chosen the other way, I will still extend my support and help you in every way I can. I wish you a speedy recovery.

And I have not forgotten our promises, that we shall wait till you have recovered.
