I have always loved satay.  As a kid, satay was the easiest, tastiest thing to eat.   In those days, it seemed to be a regular feature at every coffeeshop you visit.  So, aside from selling kopi and teh, each coffeeshop would make their own pau and there will be someone grilling satay along the pathway outside the coffeeshop.  That was at least how I saw the world as a kid.

It seems to me that Satay has seen better days.  I think it must have peaked in popularity during the days of Satay Club at the Esplanade.  Nowadays most of the stalls don't make their own satay anymore, but buy them from a supplier instead.  There are a few reasons for this.  Firstly, it is much easier for the satay man as he does not have to go through the trouble of making his own satays.  But more significantly, our local authorities make it very hard for anyone who wishes to make their own food.  A lot of hawkers I spoke to tell me about the strict guidelines on food production.  So much so that if you wish to make your own stuff, you need to invest in a central kitchen.  Now, I can understand the importance of food safety issues but I think it can be done in a way that still encourages our hawkers to make their own food. With increasing rental costs, it will just mean that there will be less and less hawkers making their own stuff and just re-selling factory made food and that is not good news for all of us!

Malaysia Funny - Jokes and Stereotypes

The nonsense here on this post has nothing to do with attempting to cause racial riots or to induce hatred. This is created out of real life situations exaggerated so much that they are hardly true. All characters are fictional BUT based on people that the author knows. Read, Have a laugh and move on with your life.
Don't hate people based on their race, religion or beliefs, after all, we are all human aren't we?
Its time that we realized that racial issues are instigated by a select few who benefit from building walls between the races.

It is time that we stopped playing along. Its time we made a change.

Malaysian English

Malaysia English vs Britian English ...

Who says our English is poor. Just see below - Ours is simple,short,concise, straight-to-point, effective. The English did invent the English Language, but they cannot use it economically when communicating their intentions. Compare these phrases that Malaysians and Britians use to say the same thing: So, why make things so confusing and waste of money when you are and a long distance call.

Britons: I'm sorry, Sir, but we don't seem to have the sweater you want in your size, but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.
Malaysians: No Stock.

Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone page for me a few moments ago?

It’s quite true about the saying – There’s no second chance at making a good first impression. Advertisement, regardless online or offline, if they don’t catch your attention within seconds they are considered failed. Agencies and big corporations do not believe in ‘cool factors’ in advertisement anymore. Instead, to really stand out of the crowd, the idea has to be really out of the box, something that makes you laugh, talks about it or at least make you look twice.

Above this is a Google Street View advertisement. Google designed transparent glass to look through to become a view and place in bus-stop shelter. This is a very effective advertising way, very creative and clear information.

This is a condom advertisement. The words "don't be stupid" is like a connotation. The advertisement show the naked guy is on battlefield, mean protect yourself. Is a quite interesting advertisement with some hidden meaning.

This is a Tyskie Beer advertisement. They place the image of their beer on the door and make door handle as a beer glass handle. This is a very effective and efficient advertising way because most of people will look at it whenever they open the door or pass by.

The good advertisement is important. A creative and good advertisement give an good impression and attention to audiences. Therefore, advertisement is a promotion way to increase the selling.

Who Am I

I am Anonymous.
I am twenty years old. 
I am a student, an eldest brother, a son, a friend.

I am confident of being self-conscious
But self-conscious of being confident.

I fought with myself for so many years
Sometimes I don't know what I fight for
Is that all for repay the parents of grace?
Or fight for my own goals?

Some think that I'm strong and confident
Actually I've a lot of worries.
Sometimes I care too much what others think
I wish I could be how I want to be
When I want to be. 

I love life
Because there are so much to see and do.
I hate life
Because it's bound to end.

I hate when people make fun of me 
Saying that I'm dark skin like Indian
No matter what, I'll still think I am.
People say that I'm " emo"
Just because of the music I listen to.
They think I'm selfish 
Because I won't let them in.

They don't think the rumors torture me
Because I block them out. 
They don't think the whispers hurt
Because I pretend I hear nothing. 
They don't think the stares burn
Because I act like I don't see them.
One of my worst fears is lonely.
Music is one of the things that keeps me calm.
Life is too short.
I'd rather stay up with friends.
The most important thing in my life right now
My friends.
We play, laugh, cry, fight, talk.
We live life to the fullest.
I know them better than myself.
They know me better than I do.

My name is Anonymous
I don't know who I am,
Do you?

Doraemon is a one of my favorite comic or manga during my primary and secondary school. Doraemon Japanese manga created by Fujiko Fujio. The manga has many chapter of short story in every volume and it also has long story of manga The manga is about an intelligent robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a pre-teen boy, Nobita Nobi

Nobita Nobi who is a boy always wear glasses, yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue shorts. He is lazy and always bullied classmates Gian and Suneo. Although he always bullied by both of them, but he still always together with them and treat them as his friends. Everytime Nobita Nobi has troubles, he always ask Doraemon for help. Doraemon always borrow him a props to help him to solve the problem, but in the end, he will screwed it or make another trouble because of he very playful and wanted to show off his props to his friends.

Doraemon is a interesting and creative manga. The Doraemon's artist,Fujiko Fujio created many props or "magic item" which can be take from his "babolat  bag". Doraemon always take out different kind of props from his babolat bag in the every chapter. Sometimes his props will repeated use but is different story line.

Doraemon has many kind of props or tools in his babolat bag. Example,Dokodemo Door,a door which allows travel to anywhere by simply going through the door, Air Cannon,a gun barrel worn on the arm used to fire a powerful burst of air which can knock out the victim when the user says “bang” and Take- Copter, tiny suction cup which can be attached to enable flight and has a short battery life. Sometime I think if these props or tools are real exist that my life will become so fun and easier. Most of the tools are really too fantasy and impossible like Small Light, is a lamp similar to a flashlight that will shrink objects and people to minuscule sizes.but I believe some tools maybe will exist in the future. 

In the Doraemon manga,maybe you will thinks these tools are very useful or helpful in our daily life, but if they really exist in our reality life, I believe people will become lazier, even they will use these to get their benefits and do unethical behavior, example people can use the Dokodemo Door to rob the bank. People will rely the tools to do somethings and become lazier. Do you these props will be controlled if they really exist? For my answer is no.

By the way, Doraemon just a manga created by an artist and something that created beyond our imagination. Doraemon also bring a good fantasy imagination to our childhood memories.

Wei-Ling Gallery- Malaysian Contemporary Arts

Wei Ling Gallery was set up in May 2002 to showcase the works of Malaysian contemporary artists. Wei-Ling Gallery is located at 8 Jalan Scott, Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur and Wei-Ling Contemporary is loacted at Ground Floor, Gardens Mall.

I went to Wei-Ling Gallery at Brickfields few days ago. There are a lot of artworks were display in the Wei Ling Gallery. I did not understand most of the art and some are not really appreciate on their artwork but some artwork are quite interesting for me.
The titile of this painting is call Waiting for the Moon. There are four Muslims in the painting and you can see few different type of moons on top which like a process of moon changing the view. If you see closely, you will see a "Twisties" on the top left corner. Twisties is a popular crunchy corn snack available in cheese, chicken, barbecue, tomatoes and eventually "kari" flavour. I don't know why the artist added the Twisties on top, but I believe maybe he wanted to present the hidden meaning. Maybe he is there a gap or relationship between Twisties and Muslims ?? 

There are some Indelible Markings. It's Working with a variety of mixed media, he drips and splashes the medium onto the canvas in a seemingly random manner. His canvases exude an ethereal mood that is both abstract and poetic at the same time.

This painting is call 'Fall'. I can understand because it is obviously that we can see there is a person seem like falling from the 'sky'.

This painting is call 'Mother'. I really don't know why is painting call 'Mother', is my art sense not enough or artist too "pro"? This painting is too abstract. I can't get it what does it mean.Actually there were still have many abstract painting I did't not understand...
 Kedai Hiburan (Who let the black dog out II)                    Kedai Hiburan (Who let the black dog out III)

This painting is finished by an artist, Ahmad Shukri Mohamed. The theme was came from "Toys".
This painting seem a bit racist? ><

By the way, this art gallery actually gave me a lot of inspiration. I think I'll use, exert them in my works although I not understand what they wanted to mean or represent.
