Eeeep!!

As I was messing around with my phone camera, I caught something on it. It was dark and very quite except for the sound of my kids. Then something appeared and disappeared again.

Can you identify what the creature is? This is not for the faint hearted, I kid you not...

The state of affairs

After the HS by-election, many constituents probably wish that their MPs drop dead. Then the brouhaha will arrive, promises will be made and big money will be doled out. It is quite embarrassing too that this tactic usually works. Money speaks volumes and there's probably not a lot we can do to change mindsets, unless each individual stops thinking for himself and starts thinking of the bigger picture.

We talk about wiping up corruption, of cleaning up our good 'ol country of the corruptor and the corrupted. But all these efforts are useless if we can't get the basic things right. Offering something to someone in hopes of getting something back is in itself bribery. If they really deserve it, then why offer it now, and not 2 years ago or 5 years ago?

And this race thing is really getting me quite piqued. Whatever the results, it's because the Malays this or the Chinese that. Then there's the stereotyping tied to the certain race. "Oh, you're Indian…no wonder lah." People, that's backward thinking. How on earth are we to become a first class country if our thinking is still stuck in the old age? It's not about your race, it's not about your religion. No doubt these two things play a pivotal role in your values and in your upbringing. But that's not the end of it.

Our world view of things has to be changed. We can't afford to keep on living in our own little hermit cave and think as long as we're surviving, then it's alright. For sure it's not alright because whatever you do today will definitely affect what your children go through later. And please don't get me started on the social ills being committed by our youngsters. Scares me to death. Scares me to realize that my own kids will grow up in this kind of environment…right here in this "Truly Asia" country with corrupt morals. I pray day and night for God to protect them and to give them good common sense and to see their parents as someone they can go to for advice, and to actually listen to that advice.

But more more importantly, to constantly turn to God for guidance and patience.

14 April 2010


You've grown by leaps and bounds in 3 short years
Hope we'll never forget the joy and tears
Know that we love you very much
All through your sulks, tantrums and such

You're such an independent child
And you have your own unique style
But you'll always be my little baby
Even if you've gotten quite heavy!

Many brand new things to experience
To learn, discover and sense
The world is out there waiting for you
And we'll always be here to see you through

Happy Birthday...

Science Lesson: Life cycle according to Sa’eed

Dari ulat....jadi kepompom

Tido tido dalam osso (this one I still can't figure out what it means)

Cukup masa.... pompom pecah

POM! POM!

Jadi rama-rama

Rama-rama hisap madu

Mati dah


 

Very cute…complete with all the actions. I tried to get it on video, but this vain child of mine keeps wanting to see his face. So it's a tad bit impossible.
