Don't go to the streets, go online

It's quite a read, Malaysian bloggers and netizens today, so much so I got slurped into the topic concerning Penang's ban on al-Quran recitals over loudspeakers in the morning.

You can immediately see who's thinking, and who's simply talking cock. I just hope the work of the forum moderators at all the media sites (lefties, righties, got aah anyone being totally unbiased?) will get easier - but for this to happen I guess they'd be praying for Malaysians to read and proof their comments before clicking that Submit Comment button - hmm.

As I read on, I can't help but laugh out loud when I came across a Greenpeace-wannabe prosecutes both those who support having the recitals done as well as those who opposed. He/She commented that those who support are contributing to sound pollution "which is damaging to our ears" at the same time accused those who opposed being likely joss stick burners and papier-mache makers - who in turn are "encouraging serious, repetitious air pollution", adding that like many people his/her age, this person will "do away with the burning and stop teaching children to waste paper for senseless burning". Wow. Talk about arguing from all facets. I takut... hahahah - now you see why I kept reading those comments?

Another netizen also asked if anyone knowns a good sound-proofing contractor as he/she lives next to a temple that "must have bells made from sound hell". Muah hah hah!

However I'm glad to see these folks airing their complaints via these effective and impactful channels instead of going to the streets.

I can hear you guys more clearly this way.

Kamon la Harian Metro...

For some odd reason, whenever I got nothing better to do I read the newspaper. OK lah, not reading as in reading, more like reading as in flipping.

I love the NST page on celebrities (that one odd page 40) and I like Harian Metro's Info Minda. But today's Info Minda is a real... kick-ass! I don't know if I should laugh or feel insulted instead.

You decide.

If you can't make it out, the info-of-the-day provided reads (and translates to) "The horse has more bones than human."

C'mon la Joe!

Chicken staying put

Lately there's been talk in the Coop about certain Chickens elevating themselves into Chicken2 (read: Chicken to the power of 2 or simply, Chicken-Chicken) level. Heard those who did not deserved to get the rank got them, while those who has been focusing solely on farting eggs along with other deadwood did not. Heard those who did get elevated are mostly loved by Other Farmers, Barbarians and others who possess the special power to elevate.

So what's in it for This Chicken? What does it all mean?

It means shit, really. Not in the shit Oh-shit! kinda way, more like shit nothing and shit who cares, if you know what I mean. And This Chicken is not alone. A few more just like This Chicken, also do not mind at all if we're not called Chicken2. It doesn't matter if we've delivered golden eggs before and Farmers just don't recognise the value of having a Golden Chicken like us....

As long as we're left alone, we're OK.

I'm so beat

It's Ramadhan once again, and despite having colleagues leave earlier than I do to avoid traffic jam (which translates to me being able to go back early too) and not having too many events to attend, I am feeling sooooooooooo tired.

What's up?

I think it's age. It can't be lifestyle cause my lifestyle hasn't changed much.

So it is age. And the fact that I haven't been able to drink cups and cups of coffee since the holy month started.

I think the remedy might come in the form of Kopi Che Nah and Nescafe. Oooh I wonder what it would taste like if I fusion the two into a good pulled mug. Steaming hot. With kaya toast on the side.

I can't believe I'm still swayed by food during Ramadhan at this age!

Sigh. It's age.

Selamat berpuasa and selamat beribadat to all.
