If the government were to proceed in requiring bloggers to register, I am definitely going to myself as a voter for general elections man. But realistically I doubt this can actually be done lah. Though a statement of the deputy minister concerned is rather amusing.

Asking bloggers to register with the government is not the same as censorship, Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said yesterday. Perhaps aware of the criticism heaped on him in cyberspace after he announced the possibility in parliament on Wednesday, Shaziman was at pains to explain what he meant. "I only said ‘maybe’ we would do it (registration). I never said ‘censor’," he told reporters after launching PosLaju’s "Putrajaya Express", a same-day delivery courier service to the city and Cyberjaya. "We just want to know the number of bloggers, how many are active, how often they update their websites, and what kind of info is posted. It has nothing to do with censoring."

So if it's not about censorship, would they be interested in reading my dull blog? So these people would actually want to know what we do in life? What happened to us the day before? The latest gadgets we bought? A review of a pathetic movie?

Like what Marina Mahathir mentioned, our politicians don't know sh*t about blogging.

Okay so this will be my last say on this politicians vs bloggers thingy.

I'm starting to fall sick, i can see it coming. When I wake up tomorrow morning, I will have flu and a slight fever.

Blog War

If politics brings you boredom that could be fatal to you, I suggest you stop reading at this point and view my photo gallery in the link provided on the right. But honestly, it's not about liking politics or otherwise, it's about being sensitive and conscious on the things going on that could have a huge impact on our lives as ordinary Malaysians.
Yep, any issue-sensitive Malaysian would know what's going on lately. The main governing component party is "at war" with bloggers. So for the past couple of days I've been surfing a number of blogs and websites. I came upon the website of Kelab Penyokong Maya UMNO, and this particular post caught my attention. After you have read that, now read the blog mentioned in that post here. What do you think? I've asked a couple of Muslim buddies about this and they thought it's nothing really. It's all political man!
I'm not gonna write more here, else might get myself in trouble :p. For the record, I'm not a member of any Opposition Party, not affiliated in any way. Nor am I a supporter of BN. I have no political affiliations.

If you have played the PC Game FEAR, it's an awesome game!

On a heavier note, lately there have been a lot being said by those in power about bloggers. Politicians have been ruffled by some of the things written in blogs. Some of them have suggested and warned that action be taken against these bloggers.

I smell fear.

My allegiance is to King & Country. Not the hypocrites that make up our politicians!

Lamak sik update blog (Long no update blog)

Have you ever been so hungry that you did not want to eat?

Yeah, me neither.

I woke up pretty late today, at about 12.30 in the afternoon. I actually woke up much earlier, but I felt it was too early so I went back to sleep hee hee. But before you slack me off, I went to bed just before 5am okay? It was partly the coffee's fault, power man! Speaking of which, I've "formulated" a "hybrid" coffee that kicks ass! I am a coffee addict. And I live in a small town where top-notch "coffee infrastructure" such as your Starbucks etc is non-existent. So one could only be content with the various 3-in-1s, 5-in-1s of Nescafe, Ali cafe etc apart from the coffee shops. And so far, none of the shops here serve a wonderful cup/mug of coffee.
Having the experience of living away from home, having to prepare my own meals at times, with limited financial resources, I am very familiar with 2 these important words: "Modify, Improvise". So with that philosophy deeply ingrained in my mentality, I as I mentioned earlier, "formulated" a kick ass mug of coffee. If I could be vain in anything, it would be my F&B skills, even if it's actually closer to crap. But I'll just share this one with you:

What you need:
1 sachet of Ali Cafe (the one with sugar)

1 sachet of Nescafe or Ali Cafe (without sugar) note: I'd recommend Nescafe

1 tea spoon of Milo

2 tea spoons of milk powder (I think any milk powder would do, I used my mum's Anlene :p)

You know the drill lah. And I think it doesn't matter which one you put in first. But strangely I mixed mine in the order above. Served hot or cold. The above is recommended for 1 serving only (if you are using a mug).

Note: I strongly suggest you use the brands I've mentioned, except for the milk powder. You could probably try using other brands if those aren't available.

I hope you will like it. I love it! I think you'll love it. If you think it's crap, maybe you missed an important step in preparing it. Or you just don't have it in you as a coffee maker.

PS: I was really annoyed by a man driving a van this afternoon. I had side parked the car initially so that my grandad would have an easier time going to the pharmacy. When we were about to leave, I turned on the signal to indicate I was going out. But a van came from behind, so I had to let it pass first before I could turn into the street. But the bugger stopped his van at our side but abit to the front, right in the middle of the lane, thus blocking our way. If I was alone, I would have cursed. It's not that I'm being impatient. But the van driver was being totally unreasonable and incinsiderate. So what if he's stopping there just for a couple of minutes, he could have parked the van infront of us as there was more than ample space. To make matters worse, he didnt even had his signal light on, and you should know that people who do not give a damn about switching on their signal lights is a pain in my ass.

The reason why not all stupid & dumb motorists have had an accident or get killed is because there are smart & wise ones.

As usual I was online lastnight until 4 in the morning. Hanging around in Yahoo Messenger with a couple of my buddies. Listening/Reading Bifi's lamentations or insecurities about his gayness and helping Jerome abit with his presentation preparation. At the same time past midnught, I kept going to the Ministry of Education's website every 20 minutes or so to check if the results have been released. But when it was already 4am, I thought the Ministry would only update the website during office hours.
So I passed the KPLI MTest...
WOOHOO!!! Yeah God is indeed merciful and true. The Man!
So the interview will be held on the 6th of next month, so I still a couple weeks to read up on stuff. And the good news is that those who applied for English will be interview totally in English, now thats a relief! On the flipside however, I might have to miss the English Football season opener, the Community Shield between Man Utd & Chelsea which is on the 5th, at 11pm. DANG!

PS: Screw the Premier League on trying to block Tevez's move to Man Utd!!

Malaysian Football: Still no light at the end of the tunnel

Alright, does anybody care about our local football scene?
Yes I am a self-confessed Manchester United fanatic. But as a quote I once came upon years ago goes something like this, "A true football fan will always support his home tea." Home team meaning your local team." I believe in this. No matter how sh*tty your local team is, its your team, man. While I'm not much of a Sarawak FA fanatic as I am a Devil, I still follow the team. I'm happy when they win, disappointed when they lose. I keep up with the team news. Proud to be Sarawakian.
Okay when I went on NST's site earlier, I found out our National U-20 team was thrashed in their tour of Thailand. That sucks, really. I may have second thoughts being proud of this country at times, but I still support our national team. Anyways, as i read on, I came across a statement by the FAM Deputy President himself, the son of the Sultan of Pahang, regarding those thrashings.
The squad, coached by FA of Malaysia technical director Robert Alberts, was thrashed 8-0 and 5-0 respectively by Osotspa FC and Thailand International University in a playing tour of Thailand and the FAM is shocked.
FAM deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said: "I am shocked and Robert should be held resposible for these defeats."
I sympathize with Coach Alberts. But this isn't surprising. Nothing new. This is FAM. Always looking for a scapegoat. Always looking for someone to blame. Everytime the National team fails, it is the coach that gets the stick. Even more if the coach was a foreigner. Then they'll say local coaches can do as good if not better than foreign coaches. But then the pressure on foreign coaches are always higher and to some extent unreasonable. Just like feminists :p.
And if you are in the FAM hierarchy, you automatically get the privillege of blaming others when the National team screws up, the coach being the most convenient, heck you could probably even blame the FAM bus driver who drives the team bus. And the only people that would not be blamed is you and your fellow administrators and big wigs. The Secretary General, the Vice President and the President. Nobody blames them. Which is just understandable. How could the coach issue a press statement blaming the President? He'll definitely be given the boot.
FAM has been amusing and annoying Malaysians football fans for a long long time. It is a joke. A body that is run by clowns and jokers. Amateurs. In fact they should change their name from Football Association of Malaysia to Forever Amateur Management. Unless a complete overhaul of the leadership & administration happens, we'd be in the tunnel for a long run.

I'm blogging on a Monday...again.

What's with me and Mondays? No idea

I had ice-cream this afternoon. Nestle's something-stick with Tiramisu flavour. Good value for the Rm1.20 though. Weather was fairly humid today.

Was supposed to go jogging, but somehow I got stuck editing FM 2007. Even the Editor is addictive, damn.

The KPLI Mtest results will be out tomorrow. Bit nervous about that. But with God's grace, everything will be smooth, I'm holding on to that in my nervous-ness. LOL

Peace out
