Aren't You Afraid?

PUTRAJAYA: A 20-year-old woman suffering from Influenza A(H1N1) died on Tuesday, the fourth person to die in Malaysia due to the virus, while more schools and campuses were closed when students exhibited flu-like symptoms.

The woman, who had contracted the virus through a local transmission, died at the Malacca Hospital from “severe community acquired pneumonia” at 9.40am.

Health Ministry director-general Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican said the woman, who had suffered from obesity, had only sought treatment at the hospital on July 26, 11 days after contracting the disease.

She suffered clinical complications on July 27 and a throat swab was taken on Tuesday.


He said members of the public were still taking H1N1 lightly even after four deaths, adding that the latest victim had not heeded to her parents’ advice to go to the hospital for early treatment. He also said that doctors should be more alert.


A fourth person has died of H1N1. Aren't you afraid YET? I am.

I am afraid for all the people that I LOVE and CARE about.

Unfortunately, they care LESS.

And it HURTS me more than YOU could imagine/see.

Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping
yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she
carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from
in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is
reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion
that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

7 years ago, I discovered this tips, or poem as you may call. I would write this poem over and over again in every book that I have. It came to point where I could remember the lines by heart.

It is a beautiful poem of what and how a woman's beauty should be.

The author of the above poem is Sam Levenson (December 28, 1911-August 27, 1980), an American humorist, writer, television host and journalist. Sam Levenson wrote "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild. However, the poem soon became falsely attributed to Audrey Hepburn.

Contrary to many internet postings and email-go-rounds, Audrey Hepburn didn't write this lovely poem. The poem was mis-attributed to her because she often quoted it and had read it to her children.

This is a great poem and it's inspirational.

* She sure is pretty, isn't she?

The Sweet Life of Dylan and Cole

I'm a big fan of Nickelodeon and Disney channel. I love the cartoons and the teens series. Just to name a few, I loike Spongebob Squarepants, Danny Phantom, Totally Spies, Ned's Declassified, Drake & Josh...

And especially The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Anyway, the highlight of this post is twin brothers Dylan and Cole Sprouse who plays the character of Zack and Cody in this kid/teen series are turning 17 this year! Yeahh, UNBELIEVABLE. And especially when I feel SO MUCH OLDER NOW!

What's more, in a recent interview with People's Magazine, they showed off their cars and boy, LOOK AT THOSE WHEELS!!!!

I'm so DYING for that car on the right! *Pulling my hair vigorously*

You may not know me Dylan, but I HATE YOU DYLAN. I REALLY DO.

But you both look very good now. Ergh, so good. Haha!

R.I.P. Yasmin Ahmad

I was introduced to her officially by the movie she directed called 'Sepet'. It was a movie created with great sincerity and honesty. Later, I learnt that the Petronas ads were made by her. We would laugh, and even shed tears at her ads. And in every ad that she made, she has never failed to conjure her vision for racial harmony, and I believe that is what touches our heart the most.

This is such a sudden loss. One minute she's discussing her proposal with TV3, the next minute she has lost her consciousness.

She was a great talent. And she left us at such a young age.

Rest in peace Yasmin Ahmad. You have single-handedly done more to foster racial harmony in Malaysia than any blah-dee politicians!

Sigh, what a great loss...

* I'm not even done looking forward to what she could do next!

During a solar eclipse more than 10 years ago, I remember clearly my grandma would tell us to fast hours before the eclipse. She would also warn us not to use knives and scissors to cut anything. I felt like a pregnant woman then. Haha.

It was then when she told us how the eclipse came into existence. According to the Hindu scriptures, a demon named Rahu (yeahh, I had to google this demon because honestly, I forgot!) wanted to be immortal. So during a ritual of immortality where Gods are given amrut, he disguised himself as a God and sat between the Moon God and the Sun God.

Unknowingly, he was given the amrut and just then, the Moon God and Sun God revealed that it was actually a demon. Unfortunately, the amrut had reached his throat and as he was beheaded, his head remained immortal! LOL.

Since Moon God and Sun God were the two Gods who revealed his true identity, he nurtured hatred towards them. Therefore it is believed that at certain time of the year, Rahu holds the sun and the moon by his mouth, hence, the existence of the solar and lunar eclipses.

So, I was told. Huhu.

Tomorrow, the world will witness this century's longest total solar eclipse. In Malaysia, we could observe a partial solar eclipse between 8.23a.m - 9.48a.m (Bernama, July 21). However, it would be difficult to view the phenomenon as only 17.8 per cent of the sun would be obscured by the moon.

This means I should be fasting. Oh wait, if it's a solar eclipse, I should fast 12 hours before the eclipse. Arghh!! I passed the time to start fasting! Haha. Ouhh well, worry not, one can drink water during this period. Huhu. One should only observe a waterless fast while the actual eclipse is in progress. Ho-yeahh.

One should also take a bath after the eclipse to ward off evil spirits/doings as eclipse is commonly observe as a dark period. LOL, how am I suppose to take a bath while working??? Ahaa.

Anyway, if you'd like to view the live webcasts of the eclipse, they say watch here, but just don't ask me how, haha:

* What a disappointment that the website of National Space Agency, ANGKASA has not provided ANY insights about tomorrow's eclipse.
* Ages ago, I drafted a post about anonymous comments. Now I am thinking of publishing it. They are abusing the freedom of speech a lil too much. Yikes.

Penjara Kajang

Hari ini kali pertama aku melangkah kaki ke penjara.

Melihat keadaan dalam bilik melawat banduan, macam-macam perasaan dirasai. Melihat orang yang dilawat oleh keluarga aku, memang dia tak bermaya. Mungkin dia makin sayu melihat kehadiran isterinya dan hanya mampu berbual di telefon sambil melihat sahaja anak tiri di sebelahnya. Sekeping cermin yang tebal memisahkan mereka.

Ketika di bilik itu, ada yang menangis, ada yang tertawa. Tapi tak kira apa yang mereka rasa, aku tetap rasa sebak. Kalau yang menangis, aku merasai rindu mereka pada yang tersayang. Kalau yang tertawa, aku merasai sakit yang berselindung di sebalik wajah gembira itu.

Tak terbayang jika ada orang yang tersayang di sebalik cermin tebal itu. Aku harap aku tak perlu melaluinya.

Kawan-kawan, jauhkan diri dari jenayah, ya?

I ate Zinger Burger earlier than you!

"Don't believe everything you read in your email lah aunty. Salt may have existed long ago. But spam is my generation. So, yeah, I've consumed, I mean, I've learnt about spam much earlier than you do!"

You know how our mum, grandmas and aunties likes giving us advise which normally ends with,
"Kakak, ibu makan garam dulu. Ibu kenal perangai manusia macam ni. Ambil langkah berjaga-jaga dalam pergaulan ye."

Literally, the English translation would be,
"My dear daughter, I have consumed salt even before you were born. I know a bad apple when I see one. Just be extra careful, ok."

Seriously, what's up with the salt? Why salt? Why can't it be sugar, spice and everything nice??! Think Power Puff Girls.

Anyway, my point is, while the earlier generation worry about us getting into trouble with boyfriends and girlfriends, I think we are more than worried if they fall prey to all sorts of spam in the emails, website scams and the oh-so-famous MLM schemes!

I say MORE THAN worried because they still have the mentally of I-ATE-SALT-FIRST. What the ... @#$%^&*!!

My aunt's e-mail is normally flooded with forwarded messages sent by all her other ignorant friends. Titles like "If you have a daughter, please read this!", "A must read about cooking oils", "Fwd this:Stories why Korean women do not get breast cancer" are very common. And as curious as a little girl who notice a bump on her flat chest, my aunt reads them, and is normally followed by a loud gasp of disbelief. Perhaps she just read something like this, "Do you know how they produce the cooking oil you use daily in your kitchen? Urine from cockroaches!!That's the main ingredient!"

Yeah, you think it's foolish, but not for people like her.

Whenever she wants to check her e-mail, I become worried. NOW I KNOW how worried they are when they have knowledge/experience of something we don't! I would constantly check on what she's reading and would normally explain about the content reliability of the forwarded e-mails that she reads.

Among other things that worries me is about her giving out confidential details through the internet. The other day while she was using the internet, an advertisement about investment caught her attention and she ALMOST gave out confidential details about her credit card and stuff!

So, who said parents are the only one who needs to monitor their children while using the internet?

Parents, aunties and uncles OUGHT to be monitored by their children too! Yikes.

Customer Service Part 2

CSO: Maxis Broadband, S**** speaking.

Atreyu: Hi, my name is J**. Currently, I have a connection problem. I'll give you my IC number and can you check what's wrong?

CSO: Ok sure. So, may I know if you can give me your IC number for me to assist you?

(Atreyu feeling slightly annoyed because she did mention earlier that she wants to give her IC number)

Atreyu : YAAAA, sure. It's 8*****0*****.

CSO: Ok, may I have your full name?

Atreyu: J***** ******* *****.

CSO: So, Miss J*****, you mentioned just now that you want to check for your outstanding balance right, am I correct? (Reduncacy spotted)

(Atreyu taking a deep, really deep, breath)


CSO: Ouhh, so it's the connection problem?

Atreyu: YES! (for crying out loud!)

And the rest is, shall I say, history? Because she simply read the scripts that were given to her during her training.

And all I wanted was for her to reset the bloody connection!

* I'm switching broadband. But what choice do I have? Sigh~
* Ouhh, no more English for Science & Maths?
* I think the government got hit by the H1N1 Selesema Babi virus. No wonder so WEAK at making decisions! Srowpok!

I've watched Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen for almost a week now but I don't feel the urge to blog about it. Well, it could be because there's a lot of stuff that has been said about the movie since its release. My review would make no impact at all.

Anyway, it was an O-K movie lah. Just as I've anticipated, trailer jek lebih! I've already reminded myself that the first installment was already a let down especially after watching the trailer sooOoo many times before going to the movie! So, there wasn't so much of higher expectation this time.

Of course the special effects and the CGI work was impressive! But in terms of acting, heck, Maya Karin is a better actress than Megan Fox ANYTIME BEBEH! Seriously, there's nothing passionate in Megan's character except her *** and her *****. Yeahh... Ironically, she blamed the director Michael Bay for focusing too much on the effects and not the acting. Well mind you Miss Fox, if it weren't for him, you wouldn't be the poster girl in any guy's bedroom!

Ouhh, seriously, what a lame review!

3.1 out of 4.0. I could watch Madagascar 2 one more time and still laugh my a** off!
