Sad

29 August 2009 14:52

We are just days away from celebrating our 52nd year of independence and this downright despicable and disgraceful act had to happen. To quote one of the protesters:

“With a temple on our residential area, we cannot function properly as Muslims. The temple will disrupt our daily activities like prayers in the Surau. We cannot concentrate with the sounds coming from the temple”.


My response to that numbnutted nitwit would be:

If the non-Muslims in our country can put up with the sound of the azan that breaks the silence of dawn everyday, why can't you put up with such sounds coming from the temple occasionally? Muhibbah is not a one way street.


Perhaps they should be reminded of this verse in the Quran:

And revile not those whom they call upon beside Allah, lest they, out of spite, revile Allah in their ignorance / Dan janganlah kamu memaki sembahan-sembahan yang mereka sembah selain Allah, kerana mereka nanti akan memaki Allah dengan melampaui batas tanpa pengetahuan.” (Al-An'am: 108)


If only this weblog is read by more than 2-3 of you out there...

Eight

28 August 2009 15:44

I'm taking a quick break from my busy schedule to give props and shoutout to Cybersonique-dot-Org on its eighth birthday today. It's been a bit on the quiet side this year (only 23 entries including this one so far) but hopefully it'll still be around in the years to come providing the two or three of you out there some glorious insights into the goings-on in the void that is the mind of yours truly.

Happy Birthday, Cybersonique-dot-Org.

Update!

21 August 2009 08:13

It's unfortunate that I have to start off an entry by saying "Things have been going extremely busy the last few months that it's hard for me to actually sit down for a measly 5 minutes to write something on this weblog". So yes, things have been going extremely busy the last few months that it's hard for me to actually sit down for a measly 5 minutes to write something on this weblog. Lately, it just got crazier.

I've been consistently sleeping three hours or less these days and at very irregular times. I haven't exercised as much as I'm supposed to. I lost 8kgs already since March. I'm fatigued and lethargic most of the time. I keep forgetting things. I only have sparse idea of what's going on in the world or with my family and friends today. If I do, it's either via Twitter or Facebook rather than from actual conversations or interactions. I hardly watch TV or listen to any new music out there. It's been ages since I actually went to the cinema to watch a movie and to top it all, I actually found unopened foodstuff that expired last February in my fridge.

You may think that I should get laid to get my issues sorted out but I think I need professional help in this case.

Normal Is Overrated

19 July 2009 00:00

Eight out of ten people are normal,
One may be genius,
One may be crazy,
I hesitate to call myself genius,
So that leaves only one choice.

Normal is overrated. Embrace your quirks.

Tribute To Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

26 June 2009 16:51

The King of Pop passes on. His music, however, will still live on. There was this remix of "Rock With You" that I worked on for 8TV's So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia in 2007 that did not get selected for the performances. I thought I'd give it the due exposure here as my tribute to the greatest entertainer of the world whose music I grew up listening to. Rest in peace.

You Matter

16 June 2009 05:36

Via Seth Godin's weblog:

  • When you love the work you do and the people you do it with, you matter.
  • When you are so gracious and generous and aware that you think of other people before yourself, you matter.
  • When you leave the world a better place than you found it, you matter.
  • When you continue to raise the bar on what you do and how you do it, you matter.
  • When you teach and forgive and teach more before you rush to judge and demean, you matter.
  • When you touch the people in your life through your actions (and your words), you matter.
  • When kids grow up wanting to be you, you matter.
  • When you see the world as it is, but insist on making it more like it could be, you matter.
  • When you inspire a Nobel prize winner or a slum dweller, you matter.
  • When the room brightens when you walk in, you matter.
  • And when the legacy you leave behind lasts for hours, days or a lifetime, you matter.

Laws Of Infernal Dynamics

6 June 2009 17:05

The cursedness of my universe in the context of Newton's Laws of Motion can be simply put as follows:

  1. An object in motion will always be heading in the wrong direction.
  2. An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.
  3. The energy required to move an object in the correct direction, or put it in the right place, will be more than you wish to expend but not so much as to make the task impossible.


Perhaps I should start living opposite days.

The Most Dangerous Malaysian Newspaper

5 June 2009 02:42

If Dick Cheney is regarded as the most dangerous United States Vice President ever, I would like to regard Utusan Malaysia (UMNO's mouthpiece) in its current form as the most dangerous widely circulated daily that our country has ever had. Not once, not twice, but on too many occasions already has it been the accuser, judge, jury and executioner on several critical issues, supposedly on the pretext of championing Malay rights. Seditious as they downright are, yet, they can get away with it with hardly a slap on the wrist, unlike other publications.

Seriously Utusan/UMNO, you're not doing us Malays any favors with your antics (or to put it bluntly, you're just making more enemies for the Malays). When other people can already stand and walk on their feet while you're telling us Malays how we should be grateful and content that we can sit comfortably on our laurels, pulling other people down and making them sit just because you can't and don't want to learn to stand yourself is not going to earn you any fans, let alone the respect you seemingly like to command from others.

I'm glad that's off my chest. If anybody feels like flaming me for this post, by all means, do. I'd like to see how my flame retardant suit holds up too.
