Malaysia Boleh!

The result of AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 for the first leg at Bukit Jalil Stadium has a positive effect on everyone it seems. Being at the stadium itself to watch the game is beyond description. Watching a football game at the stadium, compared to watching at the comfort of your own house it totally different in terms of the atmosphere. You have to be there to know how it feels.






And a video that I took using Pentax K-5 with Pentax Fisheye 10-17mm.

Malaysia Boleh!

People's First.

I was caught in a traffic jam the other day. I would not have mind if it is because of accidents, as we are already used to that. The thing that pissed me off was because it was in the middle of the highway and the cars were stopped by some policeman because we were supposed to give way to some VIP in black cars which were being escorted by policemen with at least one patrol car and five motorcycles. It got me thinking while waiting that whole 30 seconds for the VIP cars to pass by.

Why would we need a whole entourage for some VIP cars?

If it is because of protection,you don't need to have the whole IPD to escort some VIPs. This is Malaysia, have you heard about VIPs being hijacked while in a moving car? Maybe it can happen in other countries, but not here. We don't need that.

Why can't the VIPs just drive like normal people? They have to rush to some place else so they need the policemen to escort them so that they would have a smooth journey? Personally, the only situation where we would need police escorts is during life threatening situation like delivering a baby or bringing an injured person to the hospital.

People say that they cannot connect with people in power as they cannot see the similarities between them. While people in power enjoy the privileges, the normal people still have to shove around just to get into a crammed train, have to skip dinner just because they don't have money to buy food while other people eat lavishly. Putting people as the main priority is helping the people to live comfortably without burdening them. Making people's priority first is not merely snapping pictures with some baby or taking a train ride once in a while and publicise it to the whole world. It is making decisions with helping the people in mind.

How To Know That Your Boyfriend Is A Douche

Getting a prince charming, someone who is 'tall, dark and handsome' is on top of every woman's list. But let's face it, we are not living in some kind of fairy tale. Some women might make mistakes in having some douche as their boyfriend. So how do you know if your boyfriend is a douche?

1. Constantly calling you on the phone.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Except, in this case, constantly calling you, texting you, asking your whereabouts is rather annoying. You should not get bogged down from living your life just because you have to text him every 23 seconds and inform him of your whereabouts. Some concern is ok, but too much isn't. So get a life.

2. Making you feel guilty.
Sure, everybody has baggages, things that they hope would be ignored. The problem is when your boyfriend keep on mentioning it just to make you feel guilty so that you keep on nodding your head whenever he gets angry at you. If your boyfriend really loves you, why should he be mentioning about the past? He is with the current you. If he keeps on mentioning about the past, ask him to meet Dr. Emmett Brown, last I heard, DeLorean is still with him.

3. Using exes as an excuse.
This is somewhat related to number two, someone who is still stuck in the past. A guy who narrates a sappy story of him and his ex is just pathetic. The trick is to cry out loud that his ex did bad things when they were together, so he is being overprotective now because he is paranoid and not wanting the same thing to happen again. Remember, this is an old trick that guys use, don't ever fall for it and thinking that it is ok to put up with a guy who treats you as if you are his ex.

4. Has no respect for your family.
Sure, being in a relationship makes you feel like there are only you and your boyfriend in this world. But remember, the world does not revolve around you two. There are other people too, such as your family. Your boyfriend should know how to have a good manner when he is around your family. If he behaves like a total ass with your family, expect the same when he's with you in another 10 years.

5. Hitting you on the pretext of correcting you.
Let's face it, we are no saint. Once in a while, we make mistakes. But if making that mistakes entitle you to be hit by your boyfriend, then you better get out from the relationship. He will say that he wants you to learn not to make the same mistakes but if it leads to bruises and broken bones, that is not teaching, that is abusing. You better get ready with the pepper spray.

No matter what the reason, guys who act like a total douche should be dumped. Women who are still stuck with this type of men are either very loyal or too dumb to see. Though I hate to admit it, I think it is because of the latter. Love makes you blind, eh?
