Eastern-Oriental Express

I just heard about this Eastern-Oriental Express, a train that move through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Well, you won't be staying all the time on the train, you will have some moment outside the train to see the scenery and some amazing and historic places along the designated area. Sounds fun right? Well wait till you see the price on this. The most minimal price is USD1900..yes that's in US dollar per head. You might not be able to take this one just yet, but save enough, and you might one day.

Here are some photos, and the official link for the train. Now, if only I had couple of hundreds thousands dollars laying somewhere.

Awesome poem from Unknown Author

Don’t Quit

by: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Christina Perri - Arms music video

New video from Christina Perri, call Arms. Enjoy it, full lyric below the video.

I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I'm home

How many times will let you me change my mind and turn around
I can't decide if I'll let you save my life or if I'll drown

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

The world is coming down on me and I can't find a reason to be loved
I never wanna leave you but I can't make you bleed if I'm alone

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth
And I've never opened up
I've never truly loved 'Till you put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

You put your arms around me and I'm home

Love and Drugs?

It's been a very long time since I've wrote anything here, there haven't been that much of stories to write about anyway. But since I have some spear times, why not talking nonsense for a while.

So, I'm here to write about how the world is getting screw up. Not that the world was better before, it just that it has gotten a lot more weird.

So the first thing I want to mention is about homosexuality, yes yes, it's a taboo topic, but I'm not going to touch on anything sensitive here (hehe). One thing that you have to agree with me is that homosexuality has become a much heard story in the past..what? 10 years? It was considered to be a taboo story to even talking about it, but now it seems like everybody is talking about it. Plus, it's even mention here in Malaysia.

So, here's the deal, I have no problems with the gay community, in fact, as long as you don't rub it on my face, I'm cool with it, but my religions teach me that this is a NO NO! But that's not what I'm writing here, have you notice that recently that there has been a lot of increase in gay movement? Yes, go Google it. I know being understanding about other sexual orientation is one of many steps in respects and all the stuffs about humanity, but lately it seems that the gay movement are making as if all that the non-homosexual choice is an act of terrorism towards them.

Obviously I'm not making accusations here, but if you look in the USA, if a state does not allowed gay marriage, some people take it to the extreme and saying the state is against humanity, what?!

If the state doesn't allowed it, then just go to another state. It's as if we are living in a world where the gay rule everything. This is what I believe what some people said, peer and social pressure, where an act of many could change a mind. Scary when you're living in this time. This is still taboo in Malaysia, and for those that's muslim, and are gay, let just hope you're repent and if you're don't, only God can decide your fate.

Another thing I want to talk about is the abundant of drugs advertisement on TV right now. There are drugs to make you look better, or drugs that make you feel better, but one in particular caught my eyes.

Have you see the ad about a drugs that could cure fatty liver? Yes, the one where the actor said "but I'm not fat", the story is the guy who is "overweight" eating with his friend, probably acting as a doctor. Now the doctor friend been eating and eating until one day he said to him that he might be overweight and would cause problem to the liver, fatty liver.

Now normally, a sensible person, would stop eating too much and exercise, but noooo..the advertisement would like you to buy the drugs and it would repair the "broken" liver. Now, what do you think if everyone thinks this is ok? Well for once, people would rather eat to their heart content and be fat, because there are drugs that could help you with any future problems, if there was a drugs to fight obesity, I'm sure they will be the first in line. Secondly, the kids will think it's ok to eat like a hog, because there are drugs to make you alll better, kids nowadays are so susceptible.

This kind of advertisement is what we should be avoiding putting on TV, all those crap the government said about exercising just got thrown out the window. Whose idea was it on the first place? Well, they do pay a lot so that their drugs would appear on TV, it's all come down to business in the end, let just throw all the the ethics away.

So there you go, I don't expect anyone to read all of it, but I hope for those that read it, think about it, like the famous National Geographic motto, Think Curious.

Til next time. Adios!

Mother's Day

Hei, isn't today Mother's Day. Somehow, there are a lot of people reminding me about this, why? Do I look like I'm someone that does not love his mother?

Anyway, our family isn't really big in this kind of celebration, but we celebrate anyway. Simple yet meaningful. But let's not dwell into what we did today, let's talk about someone that we know we can turn to when we needed, someone that would love us, even when we do something so sinister and stupid, hehe. Someone we are proud to call our mom.

Let us not take granted of our mom, let us embrace her as long as she's still here to lend a shoulder when we're sad, or nag when we're lazy, scold us when we did something stupid. Because, that is what a mom would do. Think about those unfortunate not to have a mom, and think about how lucky we are.

So, even if you don't remember it's Mother's Day, or that you don't have a present for her, just say hello, and pray for her well being is good enough, because we know, a mother never ask for a children's love, only well being. That how selfish a mother is.

So Happy Mother's Day, even if I'm a bit too late. Hey, at least I remembered!

I don't care

Alright, this post came after the news of the death of Osama bin Laden. Now, before I pour my thoughts into this, I would like to make things clear, there has been many theories and speculations in the world of what happened after 9/11 incidents, for examples, theory that Osama was never real, it was a lie created by the US to fight the muslim or that Osama did not orchestrate the attack on the World Trade Center, whatever you want to believe, it does not matter, I only believe in one thing, it is clear from the tragic 9/11, the world change, for the worse and the better.

I'm sure most of you already read about Osama death, and how the US decided to buried him in the ocean, to (as they stated) avoid a grave where mass can worship him as a martyr. I want to say that there's some truth in this, we don't want people that support terrorism flocking his grave, but couldn't they at least bury him somewhere in a desert or something.

Everybody have their own opinions, so feel free to speak up, we are intelligence being after all, capable of decent debate. Here's what I think, I don't know if Osama really is dead, or if he is real, but the time this happened is too much of a coincidence with President Obama re-election campaign. It may be propaganda so that he could stay in office for a few more years. Who knows? But to claim that Osama is dead, when he is not, just to stay in office, is a bold move.

If Osama really is dead, I am not sorry for it. People may say that he's a martyr for openly fighting the US, The Big Devil, but is that what Islam teaches you? To kill every last infidels, just because they don't understand? Here's why I don't feel sorry for Osama being dead, firstly is because he made Islam looks like a barbaric and terrorist religion, people in Malaysia may not feel it, but think about the our fellow muslims in US, where they probably got harassed or worse, killed, all in the name of religions and ignorance. Yes, today we see that people are being shown the truth about Islam, how do you think the world was when Osama said he was the mastermind?

Like I said, people around the world has different views about Islam nowadays, where you usually walk without glaring evil eyes, now has the whole world that does not share the same belief, look differently on us. Think about the our fellow muslim that risk their life day in and day out, while people looks differently on them, just because they don't want to understand.

Yes, I don't care if he is dead, he does not shows what the truth in Islam is, killing innocent people, women and children just because they are so call "infidels?" I am not the most pious person in the world, but the teaching of Islam is about compassionate and peace. We were never taught to raise our weapon and start killing people in the name of our Allah.

The way we taught people about Islam, is by showing them, and make them understand, because we only afraid of what we do not know.

I don't care which side you are on, if you really think Islam should rise to power with aggression now, that is your belief, but I believe that we should show them by conquering other venue, science, economy and global business.

I hope this will all be forgotten, the world has been plunge into the darkness too many times.

the old and the new

It's a sad sad day. Today, marks the end of the typewriter. Some may never heard of the typewriter, let alone see it. Here's a picture if you don't know what it is. Godrej and Boyce, the last company that manufactured this revolutionary device is closing it's plant in India, with only few hundreds machine left in stock. They were at one point producing 10,000 typewriters in a year.

You can say that the typewriter make way for the modern QWERTY keyboard. I can still remember the first time I used it, and the clicking sound that echo in the house. You will be missed. Rest In Peace (1867-2011).

On a much more futuristic story, there's a revolution in how laptop are going to look like in the future.

Introducing the Rolltop. Imagine a laptop with roll over screen, flexible and one big display. It can also roll into a canvas roll, and let you to carry it better. Let's not ponder into details how will it work or how will anything fit into it, it's just a concept, enjoy the video of the idea below.
