Two in One

Kristine wanted Kaelynn to sit in front of her during dinner
but as soon as both of them settled down, fights broke out
because the baby chair was meant for only one person.

Looking at the Big Picture on the poisonous World of Photography

Sometimes, I really do wish I had a macro lens.
Then I don't have to enlarge and circle these
pictures with red colour and arrow them too

Nasi Ambang

After my business with Real Rewards, it was time to head off to the West Port to see my customer. On the way there, I stopped by to get something for lunch. I usually like to stop by at Petronas. maybe I am comfortable with it for years. And sometimes, there are always something extra with these stations as they do accept "local" items for sale.

This is my lunch for the day. (L-R) Fish crackers, happy juice, nasi ambang and Joy juice

I don't know what nasi ambang is, and its only available at this
station. Even the one across the road does not have it. So, I got
one and its delicious! You get some coconut stuff, 2 big anchovies,
curry chicken and a lot of other stuff I forgot. Goes to show how much
I can remember things after two days or more. I must be getting old now

Has the clocked ticked for you?

I needed to go to the Real Rewards office to replace the broken card. Of course, I could have gone to the Mid-Valley office which is more convenient but then, I would have to wait for at least three weeks to get my card. Going to their main office in Subang means I can get mine on the spot. But this is not a "convenient" place for me this week as I hardly pass there until today.

Anyway, on the way in, I came across the old fashioned car parking ticket dispenser. I call this old fashioned because there were no sensors on the ground to detect the presence of a car (so that it would not issue a ticket wrongly). Because of this weakness, you could easily be a victim. When you go up to the machine, you will need to press the green button and after a nice clunking sound, your ticket would come out. And usually, you will never notice about the time stamped on it until it comes to the time you need to pay for the parking charges. And I love doing this trick, which is evil:

After you have pressed the green button, take your ticket. And then press the green button again but before you do this, make sure there are no cameras and other cars behind you. You can even do this while you walk past the machine. And cruel trick works even better the longer the next car comes by. And here at HeiTech Village, the traffic is slow. Really really slow.

Imagine you staying for only twenty minutes but the ticket shows you have been there for two hours!

So, the next time you see a ticket sticking out, pull it away and
press the green button for a fresh one, OK? After coming out,
you can use the earlier ticket as a bookmark anyway.

Dari Alam Anker - Puyuh

This is a local comic from the Artist, Puyuh (aka Leong Wan Kok). It deals mostly with horror tales and has bit of a twist towards the end. I think this is Puyuh's first book but I am not sure but this later book, "Dari Alam Angker, Twisted Mind of Puyuh" is much more refined and by then, his drawing styles are more or less established. For RM7.50, its a very nice book.

This is the front cover, I am not sure if they have
come out with the English version or not as they
sometimes do.

Some stories are in mono but its not the art which
kept me glued. Its the story.

Towards the last few pages were the colour sections.
Here, the comics have no voice bubble but you can
still follow the story.

One thing I am not happy was that they wrapped
the book in a weird sticky plastic which warps the
cover. You cannot peel it off either. I suspect this
happens when they packed the comics together
during delivery with those packing straps.


Elections. Like some Celebrations or events, it comes every four years without fail. And you can sense it is near by following a few symptomatic signs

1) just look outside and see any newly tarred roads that has not been tarred for years.
2) In the night, strangers would wear caps or T-shirts which have non commercial logos like rockets, scales and even an inverted green spot, hanging flags and banners on innocent street items like trees and bridges.
3) Find the source of all these and you will find very friendly people sitting under a makeshift tent. And their genuine assistance and smiles only come every four years.
4) All newspapers and TV would have short commercials or funny stories like how they helped the Rakyat, would be on all the time.

And that, folks, is Politics in a nutshell. To me, that is. I don't see the point in all this Elections thing. And not only that, if they're doing so well, why do they need to drum it to everybody, "Looook! I can plant a small tree! Look everybody! I can plant a small tree!" or, they will put a full page to "remind" their people to vote for the rigth party or they will pay the price. This is sickening. In the end, the usual will get their seats, go back to their castle in the clouds and start hammering the Rakyat for more money. As for the Opposition, they will bicker, break and then merge alliances and so on.

Sheesh. What a waste of time. Right now, things are what they are. There are no better political parties in Malaysia which anyone has confidence in voting for. Although some has good people in it, but the central core is bad. So, what else is new?

When I vote, I will follow my instinct. If a party is advertising too much or making too much "noice", this means, just like a bad product, is crap and they will use the ruse to cover the eyes of the prospect. In the end, the prospect will be confused and naturally, go for the competitor.

Some guy parked his 4x4 and tried to get votes.
Wanted to get his pic yesterday morning while
he was standing on a small lorry but I missed
