hari ni hari jumaat.
jumaat, 13 Mac.
friday the thirteenth.
tapi yang aku heran sangat apsal org takut sgt dgn hari jumaat 13 hb nih? sampai ada yg tanak naik flight p keja ambik cuti dok umah sembunyi dalam selimut bagai. bukan nya jadi apa pun. ni yang dok buat benda2 camni la yg nak jadi sangat. dah pikir macam tu, jadi lah macam tu.
aku pun tanya la pakcik google apa kisah dia sebenarnya yang asal-asal sekali yang menyebabkan orang takut sangat dengan hari dan tarikh ni.
a Norse mythology pasal a love and fertility goddess named Friga (asal-usul nama Friday tu) yang kena banish after most Norse tribes turn to Christianity, and she was also labeled a witch. so every Friday, she gathered another 11 witches, plus the devil, which makes the gathering thirteen, to plot mende2 buruk for the coming week.
mike-mike yang baca da vince code mesti tau pasal Knights Templar. it is said that the mass arrest (arrest ke? aku rasa semua kena bunuh je time tu) of these Knights Templar was ordered by King Philip on a Friday the thirteenth.
it was widely believed that Abel was killed by Cain on a Friday the thirteenth. yg ni aku x boleh nak confirm adakah kisah Qabil dan Habil menceritakan tarikh yang sama, tu Wallahualam.
bagi aku its in ur head lah kan, ko nak takut, takut la. ko rasa macam ada benda ada kat belakang ko n tgh tenung ko, ada lah benda nya tu.
mcm aku. sangat takut dengan 3.30 pagi. bukan pukul 3, tapi 3 setengah. aku x ingat bila start, tapi sampai sudah aku sangat takut. bila baca buku malam, aku x kisah kalo jam tu 3.17 ke, 3.28 ke, takpe. tapi kalo aku dah tgk jam tu pukul 3.28, aku akan cuba tak tengok jam sampai jam tu tunjuk lebih dari pukul 3.30. 3.32 pun jadi lah. hati aku akan aman. kalo ter-tengok pukul 3.30 tepat, alamat dia aku akan terus tido tanpa tutup lampu tu.
sampai skrg aku tak tau, tapi sekarang dah tak takut.
apsal? sebab sebelum pukul 3 mesti dah tido kihkihkih
aku tak jumpa korg dua minggu tau. take care ok people! muahs!
tapi baca jugak kan. mcm love hate relationship pulak.
ye lah, it was built to turunkan air banjir tu when it comes, but when they close the tunnel to do so, mmg la massive jam nye kan.
nak buat camne. tarik kain kat sini, terselak pulak kat sana. kain x cukup la katakan.
yg gaduh2 xberenti2 tu apsal ntah. senyap2 sikit buleh x? penat la org2 awam ni tgk.
i think this, should summarise it succinctly:
Worry about the economy, please
ON THE BEAT
By WONG CHUN WAI
It’s irrational for our politicians to be more preoccupied with fighting for power rather than fighting to stave off the financial tsunami and saving the jobs of Malaysians.
THE political tsunami that swept Malaysia is already a year old although the manner in which our politicians are going for each other’s throats may suggest otherwise. But it is the financial tsunami that we should be worried about.
The reality is, no one can answer how long the global economic crisis will last and how bad it will be.
Several countries, like Latvia, have slipped into depression, resulting in social unrest.
Some European leaders have admitted they do not know what to do, saying there’s no precedent or textbook formulas for them to rely on to tackle the problems.
In the United Kingdom, only one bank has not been nationalised or rescued by the government. That’s how bad the situation is now.
The United States, the world’s largest market, has been badly hit, resulting in an unemployment rate of 8.1% – the highest in 25 years with 651,000 jobs lost last month alone.
In China, especially in Guangdong, thousands of factories, which relied mostly on the American market, have shut down, resulting in millions losing their jobs.
Last week, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said that this year would be the country’s most difficult year in this century.
He has declared an annual growth rate of 8%, with analysts saying that anything less than that could lead to political problems.
As for Singapore, the country’s benchmark stock index may fall about 20% more as the city-state sinks deeper into recession.
In Malaysia, the economic tsunami has yet to affect us but the sign of a deteriorating economy is showing.
We will not escape the impact of the global financial crisis although the authorities have refuted claims that the country is facing a recession.
Malaysia’s economy, which is heavily dependent on manufacturing, grew by a mere 0.1% in the last three months of 2008. This took annual growth to 4.6%, below official targets.
The second stimulus plan, in which the Government is spending another RM10bil, has been tabled in Parliament to revive the economy. This takes it to a total of RM17bil.
For Malaysians, especially in the private sector, it means re-looking their working patterns. By now, the orders are already out – no more new staff, no extension for staff reaching retirement age unless absolutely necessary, cut on business trips and, for sure, no bonuses.
Employers are scrutinising their operating expenditures, looking hard to find items that can save their companies money during this doom-laden period.
As with any economies, Malaysia is no different. The brunt of the layoffs would be on workers in factories, the retail sector, construction and hotels. That means it would hit the less educated ones the most.
At the Asia News Network meeting in Bangkok last week, many newspaper editors expressed their bewilderment at the excessive politicking in Malaysia.
Many of these media practitioners have friends and relatives in Malaysia and they voiced their concern at what is happening in our country, where our leaders seem more preoccupied with fighting for power instead of fighting to keep jobs for Malaysians.
In the assessment of their companies performances, whether in print or multi-media, the results will be the same – drops in revenue and circulation – as they grapple with the credit crunch.
The priorities of our politicians, however, are mixed up, and more Malaysians are becoming frustrated and even alienated at what they see as the failure of leaders, regardless of their political beliefs, to face the financial tsunami that is coming our way.
It is time that Malaysians insist that our politicians stop their antics, call a truce and get on with the real job of governing the states and the country.

to be honest with u i havent watched the movie. janji dgn hariz after dinner semalam nak tengok sama-sama, but after kemas dapur, basuh baju (ceh mcm penat pakai mesin auto) unpack barang dari kedah, n pack pulak barang nak p subang, left me tergolek atas katil before long.
but the BOOK. lambat skit nak review. i've read it last week. ok lah, sedap la jugak. aku mampu abiskan dalam 3 hours cmtu. buku ni pasal a boy named Ram Mohammad Thomas, left in a church when he was a baby. He was raised in the church by a Father, and having the Hindu and Muslim society query-ing about he raising a Hindu / Muslim boy (who knows anyway?) as a Christian, he ended up giving the boy a name of the three religions. every chapter depicts how he managed to answer a certain valued question in W3B.
the book tells his adventure in the slums,
-befriending Salim at the church, whose parents were killed in a mob, n share his passion towards Armaan Ali, a Bollywood actor,
-as a housekeeper to then Bollywood star Neelima Kumari,n how she ended up killing herself,
-'adopted' by Maman, who turned out a gangster who train children to beg for money, n running away from him,
- housekeeping for a contract killer named Ahmad Khan, n ended up substituting a picture of a film director who's grooming Salim to be an actor to that of Maman's for Ahmad to kill.
finally he went to Agra and bacame a tourist guide for Taj Mahal, befriended Shankar, an autistic child to his landlady, and fell in love with Nita, a prostitute.
at the second last chapter of the book i was told of the very reason why Ram/Mohammad/Thomas entered the game show in the first place - he only want to have revenge. the host, Prem Kumar, was Neelima Kumari's lover and had physically abused her and tortured her with cigarette butts and she ended with lots of cigarette burns all over her including her breasts. and then Nita, the prostitute, was hospitalised after meeting a client. when he saw that same burn marks on Nita's breasts, he knew it was the same person who did that to his Nita.
i cant compare with the movie, sbb as i said, i havent watched. nanti dah tgk aku bagitau. but from what i Wiki-ed, the book is somewhat different from the movie. bukan somewhat lagi dah, sangat jugak lah. nak tengok!
hariz dah pack dvd skali dlm barang, malam ni buleh tgk movie di subang! yeay!
movie dia, ok, wow. sgt different lah. btl lah peon, simplified oredi. ada satu je soalan yg sama dgn buku, n the flashback matched. yg lain, semua lain ok. xde amitabh bachchan, xde soalan cricket, three musketeers lagi la xde.
i can appreciate both versions. mcm nasik lemak dan nasik goreng. dua2 nasik. tapi dua2 sodap jo :D

Do You think you don't know enough about yourself that you have to take a quiz created by God-knows-who to determine who you really are ? Doesn't matter the answer is yes or no, because you're it! =P And don't forget to tag it afterward!
2. Take the Personality Quiz
4. Tag your friends including me :)
Your view on yourself:You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
The seriousness of your love:Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates.
Your views on educationYou may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.
The right job for you:You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.
How do you view success:Success in your career is not the most important thing in life. You are content with what you have and think that being with someone you love is more than spending all of your precious time just working.
What are you most afraid of:You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.
Who is your true self:You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.
aku pun dgn penuh bersemangat nak buat lah jugak. birthday hariz was up n coming (then - yesterday lah he turned 27). so, semlm lps subuh aku pun membanting tulang kat dapur. mak masak x habis2, aku dok bertanya x habis2. nak buat kek coklat lembap la katakan, buat keja pun ala2 lembap jugak lah.
jgn risau. kek turned out ok. enak lah dimakan begitu sahaja. tp aku bab2 topping ni xtau kenapa sllu saaannggaaattt lah susah nya. bukan x penah buat. ok je. resepi sama je.
dunno what went wrong, but the topping turned chewy! series gila korg buleh gelakkan aku. mak aku siap tinggal chop jari dia atas kek.
mak ckp: ha elok la tu, tinggal kat atas meja topping tu x la cair meleleh2.
meleleh apa. bila dah potong tu, dia buleh congeal balik ok. gila terer.
solution: letak pinggan atas kek. angkat semula pinggan tersebut, topping akan ikut bersama. voila! kek sedia dimakan
tapi series, kek resepi mak sedap. eheh.

PUTRAJAYA: Closed-circuit television cameras can help reduce bullying incidents in schools.
Unfortunately, not all schools can afford to have the devices installed in their premises, Education director-general Datuk Alimuddin Mohd Dom said yesterday.
"Of course, schools can have the CCTVs, but they have to buy it using the money collected through the parent-teacher association.
"At present, we don't have plans to purchase CCTVs as our emphasis is more on holistic approaches for the sound education of our children.
"But if schools can afford it, why not? I think CCTVs can help in so many ways. If they are installed in the school hostels, I am sure bullying incidents can be reduced."
He was commenting on an incident at a secondary school in Dalat, Mukah, a coastal town in central Sarawak, where a Form Five student of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Oya had lodged a report on Feb 23 claiming that 10 Sixth Formers had assaulted him at the school's boarding house.
A recording of the three-minute incident had been uploaded on YouTube and was titled "SMK Oya-style wrestling".
Police have sent the investigation papers to the Attorney-General's Chambers.
Alimuddin will be going to the school this week after receiving a complete report from its headmaster and the state education director.
Sourced from NST Online.
Ok. Wow. What happened already?
Aku dok 5 tahun kat hostel skolah xde pe pun… I mean, seriously. R u sure nak pasang cctv ni? Ok fine, pro…bably ada some pros behind this measure. Kut2 ada drug addict curi2 masuk hostel curi barang ke (xpyh ada kawad pencerobohan cam kat ssp dulu) kes2 org minyak ke, nak teropong ayam sapa sebenarnya yg bertelur kat atas katil syu/seri/ntah tak ingat sapa budak delima tu, something to that effect, I think can lah.
But as spycam for students? Come on, kalo mende cni pasang kat girls school, silap2 org yg monitor cctv tu buat duit jual video budak pompuan p toilet/mandi/tido. Silap2 ada kes Elizabeth Wong lagi.
Xtau la budak laki kan, if they bully sampai koma budak tu kes2 terpencil la, tp kalo girls’ school, setakat merangkak bawah katil yg berabuk xhengat sambil pakai tshirt putih dan menyanyi, tiup kipas siling sampai bergerak, tiru bunyi ayam alarm clock depan satu kelas senior, juz utk nak dapat senior’s signatures is sooo biasa. N 1st year kalo mandi pukul 4.30pagi hari2 pun adalah sesuatu yg normal.
Anyway, kejap je mende2 tuh. 1st year je. Silap2 2-3 bulan je nak kena kacau pun.
Tapi boys school I dunno to what extent is normal lah, tonyoh muka masuk toilet bowl tu agak kerap aku dgr. Yg tu mcm kesian.
Ikut pandai la labu, juz kalo they install those cctvs in girls’ schools, aku rasa aku hantar my girls (eceh berangan anak pompuan byk) to daily school je.
