Teen beaten (by coppers!) at an LRT station.

Muahahahaha. Another police brutality case.

Who had the wager that there'd be another before March?

Teoh Beng Hock wasn't murdered, says Govt. pathologist

Jesus Christ. It's not over.

First suicide, then murder, now back to suicide?

I think this is a shabby, Government attempt to cover-up the shiny new MACC. Seriously people, you wouldn't want to go out and say that brand new car you just bought doesn't actually move, now do you?

Let's look at the facts: 1) First examination was conducted by a Government pathologist. Concludes that TBH's death was due to suicide. 2) Body exhumed, re-examined by Dr. Pornthip Rojanasunand, Asia's leading forensic pathologist. Concludes that TBH was strangled, and there were penetrative wounds toward the anal area. This is an uncorrupted opinion. 3) Another examination conducted. Government pathologist concludes that TBH's death was, yet again, suicide.

Is it just me, or can you see the underlying pattern emerging?

The Way It Ought To Be

I saw something today that was very touching. Very touching indeed.

I went for lunch today in one of PJ's most famous South Indian restaurants, the Grand City. If you've ever been there, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, you really should try the food there. A banana-leaf lunch set is less than RM15, and it comes with everything!

Okay, back to the point. I saw an old Indian couple sitting at the next table. I love seeing these old & happy couples, because it fills me with the sense that love really can endure the test of time, especially in these days where divorce is becoming amazingly popular.

But the cute thing was that they brought along their granddaughter, a young girl of maybe 5-6 years. She was the only one accompanying them, and they were treating her like a queen. Oh my, everything seemed to revolve around her. And they were all laughing and having a great time. Which made my day.

This is how things are supposed to be. Happy families, are like this.

The problem is that nowadays, more & more people like to leave their parents alone, in search of better things in far-away places. And the real issue here is that once they achieve fortunes, they don't return to share the spoils with their parents. This is bad enough to begin with, but when you also take into account that the youngsters probably got married & have kids by then too, is just infuriating.

You see, these old grand-couples (which is how I shall refer to them henceforth) were my first real experience seeing well-established or solid love. I mean, when you see them in their old age, still walking hand-in-hand after all these years... it's impossible not to feel warm & fuzzy inside. And for me, it was always looking at other grand-couples, because my Grandfather (God bless him) passed away before I turned two.

Despite that, I still hear the love stories about my late Grandfather and my Grandmother.

Anyway, the important thing is that the generation before mine should make sure that their kids have solid relationships with their Grandparents. From what I hear, I can safely say that there are some who don't even go back for Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Ul-Adha. That saddens me, because I know that there are some members of my generation who don't know their grandparents well, or were not given the opportunity to grow close to their grandparents.

We are our history. And if we don't allow my generation to know their grandparents, how will we know or understand who we are?

Y.Bhg. Datuk Ahirudin Attan to grace cover of TELL Magazine!

I never thought I'd see the day that Bloggers in Malaysia don't get viewed negatively by the public. And for a few days, my dreams had come true... (till that moron started insulting the late Sultan of Johore. Al-Fatihah).

Oh well.

Now, to continue the roll of good news going round, I've just been told that Datuk Ahirudin Attan, or better known as Rocky from Rocky's Bru, has just agreed to be on the cover of TELL Magazine! What a fantastic way to start off 2010!

... and oh, I've been asked to be part of that issue too. TeeHee...

Anyway, I think that the issue in question must be the March issue. But I'm not entirely certain, so I'll have to update you guys on that.

Congratulations, Uncle Rocky! You're painting an entirely new picture of Malaysian bloggers, you are. And we cannot thank you enough for your continuous support of bloggers everywhere!

Yang Bahagia Datuk Ahirudin Attan, and how he inspires me

Good evening everyone!

I started my new workout regime today, as I was inspired by fellow blogger Rocky's achievement yesterday (he was awarded a Federal title from the Agong, DYMM Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, which carries the title 'Datuk'). This, a once negatively-portrayed blogger who stood up for the rights of the world, inspired me because it once seemed seemed impossible.

One must remember that under the Tun Mahathir & Pak Lah regime, bloggers were oppressed and were always being portrayed in the worst light.

So, in my eyes, yesterday was the beginning of a new era. The era of free press, where everyone could express their views on any subject matter of the times. The era of change.

So, if Malaysia can change, so can I. My change? To get fit. (Yes, yes, laugh it all out. Take your time, there's alot there).

So, the regime starts off with a run (or jog, for now) around Section 11, Shah Alam. Then, we proceed to pushups, squats, and situps. They each have their own calculations to get the most out of the workout.

So yeah. Its time for change, people! Shake off those stereotypes, and lets move forward. Forward into the future, where Malaysians are all truly united.

Congratulations, Yang Bahagia Datuk Ahirrudin Attan. You've paved the way for us all. May Allah continue to bless you, your life, and your family for generations to come.


Being Unreasonable: Police spotcheck a 71-year old Grandmother.

Would you think that this 71-year old Grandma would get stopped by the police for anything at all?

I didn't think so. But it happened. My Grandmother was driving back from Kota Kemuning after accompanying her friend for some health check-ups when she was pulled over by the police at a roadblock!

And you know why they pulled her over? Because they thought she's too old to drive.

Excuse me, but have you seen my Grandmother drive? She's a damn-sight better than all those other morons in their 5-Series BMW's & Mercedes-Benz CLS-Klasse's. So what on earth are you doing reprimanding her? Shouldn't you be out on the job tackling those idiots before you even begin to start on my Grandmother?

Besides, what right have you to judge? YOU ride your Government-issue police-bikes worse than rempits ride their 'kapchais'!

Come on!

The 'Allah' issue, from a proud Muslim.

Salam 1Malaysia, all.

I know that I haven't been updating my blog lately, and I'm sure some of you have long forgotten this blog. Well, I figured now is the time to make my (... how many times has it been now?) comeback from silence.

And what better way to do it than by just diving into the hottest topic plaguing Malaysia?

Firstly, I don't see why The Herald should be charged with any wrongdoing. You see, the word Allah has been around for much longer than Islam has (we must remember that Islam is one of the 'younger' religions). So, should we blame The Herald for merely being historically correct?

Secondly, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU MORONS WHO HAVE BEEN SETTING FIRE TO CHURCHES, BREAKING INTO OFFICES & DROPPING HEADS OF SACRED OR UNHOLY ANIMALS INTO THE PLACES OF WORSHIP? HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR MINDS? Need I remind you of our history, the last time racial tension peaked in the country? And do I have to point out that this common reaction is what these bastards want?

Thirdly, I think that the original court decision was absolutely correct. I think that the presiding judge really deliberated on the case before making his verdict.

Now, I'm sure some of you wish to disagree. "Oh, the word Allah is sacred! How can we let others use it?" and all that jabber. Well, here's the thing.

The only way out of this predicament is by GROWING UP. Or, if you prefer the Queens' English, we all have to mature to the situation. Who's to say that the non-Muslims of Malaysia are going to use the word Allah in a negative manner? Who are YOU to determine the future?

I say that we should all be trusting. For Muslims, trust the non-Muslims with the word Allah, and pray to Him that they won't use it negatively. For Christians, trust the non-Christians with the Father, the Son & the Holy Ghost, and pray to your Lord that it will not be used wrongly. For Buddhists, entrust your Buddha with the non-Buddhists and pray at your local temple that it shall not be used for wrongdoing. And for Hindu's, entrust upon the non-Hindu community your deities, and pray that your deities will not be used for negative provocation.
