Politics...

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."
~Groucho Marx~

Hello there my fellow readers. Here we are again. I have this sudden urge to start Blogging again. And yes, I'm not the frequent blogger as I was once upon a time a go, but I have decided to use this old avenue to share and express some of my concerns with regards to the world we are living in. I know I am no expert in any of the topics I will discuss in this very dusty blog (that will require some major overhaul in terms of design. And I think a few more pictures wont hurt). So, if your here cause you think you are going to be inspired, then please Google a cute cat video. Here, my dear reader, is where you can relate...

So, when I was about to start going to uni, I went to a few interviews to get scholarship. One of them was for Political Studies. Long story short, I didn't get it. I don't have any regrets and the whole point of this story is that I know squat about politics. Zip. Nil. Nada. Even so, I do know when we, as citizens of our own country should be concerned what is the people that governs us are doing. Everyone will be informed what goes on at the daily meetings done in Parliment via the newspaper. I don't how much free speech you get in your country, but in the land I call my home, it seems everything is controlled by the governing body. Is that bad? Personally, I think it depends. Everyone needs to have secrets. If you think the numerous governments across the globe are as transparent as glass, well you need to get your head out of your arse. What bothers me, is how people handle themselves when they get caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Who here likes chess? To be honest, I don't. I like tactical games, but I just couldn't get my head wrap around planning infinite moves ahead. Gives me a headache just thinking about it.Well in chess, it's all about making the right moves. And when you screw up (which will normally happen due to the fact that we don't play by ourselves) we remedy the problem at hand. For the pass couple of years, I think (and this is just my 2 cents worth of knowledge) that the person in charge has making all the wrong counter moves. I mean yes, raiding the entity whose primary function is to seek and prosecute corrupted personnel is a good move to eliminate evidence, but a shitty move for your PR. He definitely needs to read up on his history. Especially on the Tet Offensive.

There are numerous faults, that I, as a humble and most probably still naive citizen of my country can clearly see. And to be informed like a little boy to just obey is pure bullshit. We are what makes our country what it is. We are the 99% and I believe that the elected officials not only of my country, but numerous countries in this very small world have forgotten what their purpose actually are. Which is to serve the people.

It is sad watching all this unfolding in front of our eyes. It is even sadder to watch that we are all afraid to do anything (yours truly included). But this is an opinion of a man whose voice will probably not be heard as it is silenced by the varying distraction thrown to the people. I hope that maybe, one of you readers might be braver than me and will do something about it. And maybe I'll be writing my 2 cents worth of opinion on you.

The summarize it all, I believe that all we want is the truth. Not the bullshit we all know is happening but to afraid to pursue cause someone may knock down your door and take you to prison. Hopefully, that doesn't happen. That would really be a bummer. Well, that's all from me for now. I'll try to talk to you guys soon. By guys, I mean just you. Just saying. TTFN.

Hello there...



"Such is life and life is such and after all there isn't much. First a cradle. Then a hearse. It could be better, but it could be worse."
~Norman Wisdom~

Hello there my old friend. It has been awhile has it not. Well, about 2 years and 8 months to be exact. I hope you haven't missed me that much. I've missed you a bit. It was quite fun writing here. Nobody reads them actually, well maybe just you. Thank you my good sir or madam for contributing a number to that counter on the right side of your screen. Your services have been noted, and a hawk is on its way to give you a high-five. Actually its not... But thank you anyway.

So, what shall we talk about this fine day. How about love life? Non-existent. Maybe about work? Yes. That is something we can elaborate more then just on hyphened word. It has been two years and two months with PCSB. I am currently attached to WELL Intervention & Services (International) and on track to complete my ARD examination this coming November. I have just completed my medical examination and will be planning to go offshore for a couple weeks come next week. Tasks that I do are quite simple. But at least I have a job and in this current market filled with uncertainties, that is something I am grateful for.

The last time, I wrote in this blog was when I was doing part-time for PETROSAINS. To be honest my dear friend, those were good times. I lost about 10 kilograms in that year (the year I said I would write at least once a week). I'll be honest with you, most of my thoughts now are put on paper. I have a journal which I have been using for over a year now. Named it Kenway after the main character in Assassin Creed IV Black Flag. It is weird when you reread what you've written a few months back. Peoples thoughts can change as swiftly as the tides can come in (not the bad metaphor to use but thats all I have in my head at the moment). But thats what has been keeping me sanity. I fell like I've become more private. Well that contradicts the moment this goes on the internet....

Lets talk a little bit about one of my current interest, gaming. Well, it actually isn't one of my current interest. Its always been one of my interest. I have just recently started playing Magic: The Gathering again. By recently I mean since March. Built a deck which I have been modifying bit by bit. I've also fallen in love with Boardgames and spent quite a few hundred ringgit there. Only one thing can be said. WORTH IT! My current gaming obsession is now RPG. And before you start saying like RO and WOW. Nope. Pen and Paper RPG. Currently waiting for Kinokuniya to stock up on Star Wars Force and Destiny Core Rulebook and GM kit. It will be LEGENDARY.

There are a lot more I can talk about with you my fellow bloggers, but I have work today. I would love to tell you about my trip to Japan last March or the time I played my first MTG GP at Singapore where I ended up being paired with my sparring partner during Round 4 but I'll save them for another time. I do actually have some stories of the heart, but those stories are written somewhere else. So, to my only reader of this very dusty blog, I will talk to you soon. Until then, TTFN.

And So it Begins...


“For last year's words belong to last year's language 
And next year's words await another voice.”

~T.S.Elliot~

So a new year begins with "a bang" (cause of fireworks and confetti, you get my drift) . Anyway, continuing on we must first start a new year announcing that the beginning of a virus outbreak. It will begin slowly in populated areas such as big cities and spread slowly to the country side and across the continent. Or so it feels like it. To be honest the first thing i got this year is the case of the running nose and sore throat. Totally great way to start the new year. Totally. (If i need to spell it out to you, that was sarcasm by the way).

Now, lets begin the new year by setting up a list of New Years Resolution. This time we will put it up where i can find it. Honestly, I had some new years resolution last year. No idea where i put them so i cant actually say if i did them or did not do them. Yes. That is my excuse. Now let us begin the year with the 5 things I wish to accomplish:-

1) Get a full time job. (preferably in the Oil and Gas Sector)
2) Lose weight (Either 20kg or reduce my BMI to below 30. Whichever comes first)
3) Accomplish 2 out of my "100 things to do before i die list". (Yes i do have such a list)
4) At least write on my blog once a week cause its a good outlet. (Not like last year).
5) Get a girlfriend. (This has been on the list for the past three years. Sad right)

So there you have it. 5 things for the new year. Most probably i'll complete at least 3 of them. Here's to new experiences and a new adventure. (I would have loved to use unexpected journey in the last sentence. Sighs...)

So until next time, TTFN.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

And thus the end of another year...

" Do not dwell in the past. do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.'
~Buddha~

So another year comes to end. Another long miserable year. Well not entirely miserable. There were a number of good moments in the past 12 months. Good moments with my close group friends. H.A.T and also the Wolf Pack ( yes, yes we took the name from the Hangover movies). It has been a year where lives has change and reality has struck.

What can I say about the year 2012 I hear you ask me??? Nothing much actually. At the moment I have fragments of it. There are times where I went to do some archery, my interview with PETRONAS, climbing up a number of hills, being mistreated by people, being called stupid, started working for Petrosains, thinking about creating an imaginary island where it can sustain itself, buying a new bicycle (which is pretty sweet for your information) and last but not least a couple of trips over seas which i have not done in a few years.

There will always be ups and downs in our lives. Memories we would love to forget and some we wish we can remember. But life goes on in the end. With the ones you care about or without them. We just have to keep on swimming in the end. Not for ourselves or for or parents, but for a legacy we have a chance to build. For our children s children. Believe in yourself even when the whole world thinks you are fool. To me that is what strength really is. Unyielding belief. sadly I have yet to find that in me. And thus I hope that will be what the new year will bring me. A sense of belief to myself and to those around us.

To all my followers who is reading this (I believe is only you Ainin) may you start the year 2013 (which the Mayans said would never come) with remembering how far you have come and how far you can go. Live long and prosper me amigos.

What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail ???




Hello there,

Its been a long, long, long time since i wrote an entry for this blog. I have no idea why i have not written in a long time. Maybe its because i don't want people in my head. Maybe i just don't have time. Maybe and just maybe I outgrew it. Maybe i was just lazy. I'm just saying. Okay. Okay. Let us begin with the discussion at hand, "What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?"

Honestly, i cant make up my mind for a definitive answer. A part of me tells that i would change the world and i ask  myself how? Another one would just suggest taking over the world and stop all the wars and hate  that corrupts it but then again why?? I put others first before me and it has eaten up inside me slowly. I don't want to climb the highest peaks, or swim in the deepest part of the ocean or even travel to Mars and start a colony there. What I believe that I would attempt to do if i knew i could not fail is actually to make myself a better person. To proud to see the man that stands in the mirror. Cause I believe in the simplest of all facts that we are all destined for greatness.

So until next time my dear readers, TTFN.

P.s Making a real life GUNDAM robot wouldn't be such a bad idea if you ask me...
