Esok Lusa Mesti Menang!

Esok lusa mesti menang! By hook or by crook, must win.

UMNO is fielding "you know who" to contest in the Bagan Pinang by election. Desperate people will do desperate thing. In this case, it's a lose-lose situation. You win, you lose on credibility. And if you lose, you lose.

Today I learned a new word. It's called "
legerdemain". Let me try to make a sentence to impress all of you. "The desperados are now thinking that they have acquired the art of political legerdemain; but foolishly have fallen prey to their own deceit."

And now for the "quote of the century" by none other than the keris weilding one:

"There’s good guilt and then there’s bad guilt." Go read

Makes you feel like killing someone!

The Chinese people have stood up!

(My favourite picture of young Mao)

"The Chinese people have stood up!"

This was proclaimed by Chairman Mao on Oct 1, 1949.

Those interested can read my write-up

Come this Thursday, it will be the 60th anniversary of the beginning of New China. In a short period of 20 years since the late 70s, China has transformed from an insular nation of peasants and blue attired common folks to be at par with the developed nations.
Shenzhen was the first city of Teng's vision of modernization, and the rest as they said was history.

This year's Anniversary Parade will be focused on the military advancement. My blogger friend, James Wong's blog "Clare Street" has featured a few postings on this coming event. His blog can be viewed

To understand the history of New China, one has to know the life history of Mao. Only then can one view Mao with awe and great respect.

My son just told me that Astro will be showing "Making Mao" on Channel 555 (History) this Thursday at 10pm.

Those interested in New China should not miss this documentary. I shall be watching, for sure.

Holy cow in Bagan Pinang

Holy cow in Bagan Pinang.

MalaysianInsider writes that a group of

"Indian residents of Section 23 here and from other parts of the Selangor capital intend to ensure the cow head protest against the relocation of a Hindu temple here, is “prominently featured” in the upcoming Bagan Pinang by-election".

There is a 20% Indian voters in Bagan Pinang which would counter the large postal votes.

You ask for it, and the holy cow will deliver.

The most beautiful plant in the world!

This is the most beautiful plant in the world! It has no beautiful flower with scented fragrance. It is on a simple plastic pot with a hanger. It just arrived on Friday 18 September 2009. That was a special day "yat fatt", "sure prosper". And when you add 1 to 8, it becomes 9, my favourite number!

This plant is just a wild parasitic "weed", perhaps "implanted" by a "worthless" sparrow while letting go of its bowel. What then can this "worthless" plant be the most beautiful? Ahhh, life is like that! I am the only lucky and honoured one to receive this "priceless" present. That's why this plant is the most beautiful. It was presented to me through the blogosphere, the world of internet. The day Mr Atm came specially to visit my new home. No not the Atm machine. Many of you would know "Atm". "A true Malaysian" who "floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee" in the comments column of a number of popular blogs and web sites.

It was a pleasure and an honour to receive this gift of a plant from Mr Atm. I shall cherish this for the rest of my life. Let the daily health of this plant be the barometer of our friendship. Each morning this plant will greet me with a happy smile when I open the verandah door, each evening the setting sun will cast the shadow of friendship onto my face to wish me good night, and I shall see my friend in my mind, forever happy that I still have a friend , a true friend, a true Malaysian!!

What else shall I wish for? Well, only my friend Atm knows what aches my heart.

Life is like that.

The most beautiful garden netting in the world!

This is the most beautiful garden netting in the world. It was fixed up by the most beautiful person in the world. And of course, none other than Mr Atm.

Let the world be known that devine guidance under the unseen hand can lead one to meet with someone you never knew before; but now the best of buddies. This old chap would have a tough time fixing up the netting especially with the fear of height. And devine intervention appeared. Not any unseen super power, but the real superman Atm, who so graciously pulled up his sleeves and sweated for me; for free and all the way from KL!!! What can I ask for more?

Maybe one the day the "good doctor" might pay me a visit and plant a Kesida plant in my compound. Hahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!! You have to have a sense of unlimited humour to stay sane, especially in my present condition. Or have I gone insane???


Thank you with all my laugh Mr Atm!

The New China

I simply like these two photos. Pretty girls with patroitic mission!

Since I cannot resist admiring them, I have obtained permission from Saudara James Wong to "copy & paste" them here, together with his comments. You can go to his blog "Clare Street" by clicking

Thank you James for the kind permission.

Sixteen female pilots of the fighter jets of PLA's Air Force have been assigned to demonstrate their skills at the military parade to be held in Beijing on 1 October to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the inauguration of New China. The liberation and also empowerment of women has been a very important agenda of the Chinese Revolution.

The highlight of the 60th anniversary of the founding of New China in Beijing on 1 October is doubtlessly the military parade of the People's Liberation Army, People's Armed Police and People's Militia which also consist of a significant number of women. In the feudal past, women were oppressed, marginalised and not treated as being equal to men.

Meme: Save Yvonne’s Eyesight

A number of conscientious bloggers have come forward to help Yvonne Foong .

One prominent blogger Dr Hsu wrote:

"Yvonne suffers from a genetic condition known as Neurofibromatosis, whereby tumours grow from nerve tissues, and besides producing disfigurement with multiple tumours visible on the skin, it also causes symptoms due to compression and destruction of tissues around the tumour."

Yvonne is an exceptional person. She contributes comments in one of my favourite forums @

She has appeared in tv before.

She is great and always appears positive, despite her ailment.

I have great admiration for her.



“Yvonne Foong is in danger of losing her eyesight thanks to neurofibromatosis (NF). Please find out how you can help her by visiting her blog at

Transparent Glasswing Butterfly.

Below is from email I just received:

[ Transparent Butterfly (Absolutely gorgeous photos!)

It comes from Central America and is found from Mexico to Panama. It is quite common in its zone, but it not easy to find because of its transparent wings, which is a natural camouflage mechanism.

A butterfly with transparent wings is rare and beautiful. As delicate as finely blown glass, the presence of this rare tropical gem is used by rain forest ecologists as an indication of high habitat quality and its demise alerts them of ecological change. Rivaling the refined beauty of a stained glass window, the translucent wings of the Glasswing butterfly shimmer in the sunlight like polished panes of turquoise, orange, green, and red.

All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed: in life that which is unnoticed has the most power. ]

The wonders of nature. Let not the foolish and evil humans try to disturb nature, and ultimately destroying themselves.

Genuine product.

To locate the humour, click on the right picture!

Bad Kamma?

" A Malaysian who went to India to experience spiritual life only to be locked up in an Indian jail for almost two years for violating immigration laws, left for home last night." The Star reports.

“I was shattered in prison. All I wanted to do was to heal and help people but I went through some bad karma in India."

How come his relatives did not manage to come to his rescue all these years?

If he did not meet this German Diplomat he would still be in prison. That's for his good kamma, after all!!

Food for thought.

This post was scheduled to publish on 09-09-09 at 09:09am.

Today is 9 September 2009 : 09-09-09

The number 9 is the highest number. Important number usually carries the number 9, like 911 and 999.

Sept. 9 also happens to be the 252nd day of the year (2 + 5 +2)= 9

And another thing. This date is one which the Americans can agree with us regarding the placements of the date and month in 09-09-09.

Do you know? In Chinese paintings, horses and fishes are usually painted in groups of 9?

Beware of the number "9", especially arrogant people.
You never know what can happen to you!!

There is only one religion, the religion of Peace.

There is only one prayer, the prayer of Compassion.

There is only one temple, the temple of the Heart.

"9" The mother of all numbers!

Some time ago, to be exact May 16, 2009, I posted my thoughts on my favourite number '9".
This was what I wrote:

Incidentally, 9 is my "lucky" number.
My house is No. 9 and the road is also No. 9.
My phone number ends with a 9.
My NRIC number also ends with 9!
My car No. starts with a 9.
And I am 59 this year 2009.

Take a look here:

[Examine some more amazing facts of this number. Multiplying by nine reveals mirror symmetry among numbers. If any number is multiplied by nine the resulting digits always add to nine. For example, 2 x 9 = 18; 3 x 9 = 27, 4 x 9 = 36 and so on.

Let's have a look at some more of the number's unique associations.

The 9th power of 9 is 387,420,489, a number which is unique. Breaking it down, we get 3 + 8 + 7 = 18 = 9; 4 + 2 + 0 = 6; 4 + 8 + 9 = 21 = 3; and ultimately 9 + 6 + 3 = 18 = 1 + 8 = 9.

Astronomically, there are 27 constellations in our galaxy, and each one of them has four directions. Furthermore, 27 x 4 = 108; (1+0+8) = 9. In other words the number 9 covers the whole galaxy. After all this, we still have the incomprehensible derivations of the number 9 such as the disastrous 9/11. A point to ponder, isnt it?]


The Bagan Pinang state constituency will be the
9th by-election. It is situated in Negeri Sembilan (the 9th state). This month is the 9th month of 2009.

In the last general elections, BN won the seat by a majority of 2,333 votes, taking 6,430 votes to PAS’s 4,097 votes.

Let the Mother of all numbers teach them the Mother of all lessons not to be arrogant. Let the number
9 be the precursor for the Ultimate triumph of Good over Evil.


My subsequent post will be in 9 parts, featuring 9 powerful quotations from 9 super-extraordinary personalities!

Rocket United Cafe

Got this photo from this pretty lady's popular blog :

Go read it
THERE. But don't you forget to return to this old man's blog!

And go support this Rocket United Cafe located at SS2/63.


Bless you, Hishammuddin!

(Above picture from MalaysiaInsider)

This is from MalaysiaInsider:

[Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein pointed out that the residents felt victimized and had no intention to stir racial emotion.

“They are not getting off scot-free. They felt victimised and feel that there is another valid explanation on their part. There was no intention on their part to cause racial divide. They, the organisers, who are sitting left and right of me, didn’t even know that somebody was going to bring the head of the cow during that demonstration.” he said.

“They said that they were very conscious and all that they wanted to do was to voice their unhappiness about the willingness of the state government to listen to their requests. I was told that even the Hindus there are not so passionate that it is built there (section 23),” he said.]

Hooray!! Let's go fly kites!!
