Back in May, I joined the Relay for Life event organised by National Cancer Society Malaysia at MSN field in Bukit Jalil. It's a 16 hours relay.. from evening til the next morning.
Photos below were all taken using my Nokia X6.
When I arrived, ppl were already making their rounds.. I then went to look for the tent for bloggers and met some others there.
Before merging ourselves with the group of walking humans, we took some photos.
We continued walking n walking n walking til late night.
Big Relay for Life ballons were put up and there were booths on the side of the field selling food, drinks, and LIGHTSABERS!
Ching ching! We went and bought one each.. money goes to the cancer society anyway so it's fine.
Then we all played with it a while and took more photos. LOL
After that we all lighted up the paper bags given to us prior to the event and many wrote names of their friends and family who passed away cos of cancer. Some ppl wrote their blog URLs lol.
Ok thats it.. we went home after that. Felt good for being a part of the RelayForLife event

I did it, finally got down to register a company for myself. It's now official, Souldoc Productions is a unit. My first choice Soul Music has been taken.
Just got home from a late rehearsal with Christine for my first acoustic gig. We kind of sorted out the 4 songs.
My throat has gotten worse today. I might need to see a doctor for some antibiotics. I am getting all edgy over this. It's late now and I just want to sign in to tell you about the registration.
And it's a project for me to be sleeping earlier everyday...
Going to clean up, freshen up and go to bed.
Looking forward to writing again tomorrow, it's something I look forward to doing everyday.
I miss you dearly.

I guess that part of growing up, is knowing that there is a limit as to what you can do for people.
One of this year's great revelations and realisations for me is that I cannot save everyone. I cannot live their lives for them. I can only do so much. There are limits.
Limits to my capabilities, limits to my involvement with people.
Because of my superhero dementia, I used to think that if I want to help people, I must commit 100%. I believed that being a samurai means that if I set out to do something, I would die first before failing.
According to some scholars, The Book of Five Rings - the very basis for the samurai ethics and principle - was a lie concocted by literate samurais during the Tokugawa rule to continue getting money from the Japanese Government.
They romanticised the role and honour of samurais, according to the studies, to project an image of integrity and pride.
Knowing that some people I care about are in danger or experiencing trouble has been quite frustrating. I wanted to go and make it all right again.
However, at the end of the day, it is not my life to live, and I still have my own responsibilities which I am carrying out.
I still believe in the samurai ethos, the delusions of honour and integrity and whatever the fuck. I mean, comics is my Holy Scripture, what's another fictional bullshit for me to follow?
It will be most irresponsible for me to let go of my own shit in order to control other people's lives.
And so I let go, and after giving whatever advice and information I have, allow these people to make their own decisions and mistakes. I just hope they don't get too hurt or damaged after all is said and done.
Me? I am too stubborn with my own beliefs to do anything more than focus on the path I have committed myself. When I get serious, no power in the universe can stop me.

"The time has arrived for us to record our history as the facts tell us and not as we would like to wish it. The truth will never hurt anyone. Lies, always will." - LEE Ong Kim (Dr) Associate Professor and Head, Policy and Leadership Studies, National Institute of Education, An Institute of Nanyang Technological University.
Why Kota Gelanggi (lost city) touted as earliest civilization in Malay Peninsula news were banned as they were Buddhist.
The Johor find of 2005 which was quietly dropped was none other than Kota Gelanggi lost city reflecting Srivijaya and its Buddhist splendour.
But they deliberately disregarded it because that would have sidelined Malacca Empire and Islam which was smaller and came some 500 years later.
I met Dr Lee Kam Hing, a former History prof at MU in Singapore recently at a seminar. Dr Lee, who is now Star research director, told me he was trying his best to highlight Kota Gelanggi, but that the govt killed it off.
This is clearly another case to cover up the real history of Malaya and fool the younger generations into believing that our history only began from Malacca 1400.
Not only that, they try to show Parameswara as Malay and Muslim, but actually he was Hindu!
A small piece of History for our future generation, Hitler's public relations manager, Goebbels, once said, 'If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.'
Once again our government wiped out any references to a famous Melaka prince as being Hindu and belonging to the powerful Hindu empire Sri Vijaya. So all of a sudden our museums, school text-books etc. all refer to Parameswara as a Malay prince.
What race ruled or did not rule is besides the point. What is important is not butchering history to create your own truths. You cannot change your race even if you convert - Parameswara could have been responsible for Umno's proud heritage of 'Ketuanan Melayu'.
If this is what it is based on, there is no ' Ketuanan Melayu '. The lineage of Melaka Sultans are Indians, not Malays. It is no secret that Parameswara was an Indian and a Hindu prince.
It is clear from records that Parameswara never converted to Islam. He was an Indian Hindu who fled Palembang in Sumatra to eventually found Melaka circa 1400 AD. It was Sri Maharaja who converted himself and the court of Melaka to Islam, and as a result took on the name of Sultan Muhammad Shah sometime after 1435.
The most famous of Indian Hindu Kings were Raja Chola and his son Rajendra Chola who invaded Southern Thailand, Kedah, Perak, Johor and Sumatra about 1000 AD. This is Raja-raja Chola - the Indian/Hindu kings and not Raja Chulan - a Malay king. But what is really sad is that our children are taught as though Malaysian history suddenly began in 1400 with an Islamic Melaka.
We are led to believe that the Indians and Chinese first arrived on the shores of Malaysia in about 1850 as desperate indentured labourers, farmers and miners. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The cultural influences of India in particular, and China, in South East Asia span over 2,000 years, starting with the arrival from India of the Brahmanical prince/scholar - Aji Saka in Java in AD78, through to Vietnam, Cambodia (Indo China), Thailand,Burma, Indonesia, Bali, Borneo, Brunei and beyond.
The findings at Bujang Valley speak of an ancient Indian/Hindu presence in Kedah. There were Chinese settlements in Pahang and Kelantan around the 13th-14th century and in 12th century in Singapore .
The early Brunei Sultanate had a Chinese Queen.
One need not ponder at length the implications of Angkor Wat and Borobudur or that 40%-50% of Bahasa Malaysia comprises Sanskrit/Tamil words.
To illustrate, some of these word are :
bumi = boomi
putra = putran
raja = rajah
desa = thesam
syakti = sakthi
kolam = kulam
bahaya = abahya
jaya = jeya
maha = maha
aneka = aneha
nadi = naadi
kedai = kadai
mahligai = maaligai
mantra = manthrum
tandas = sandas
(This list can go on)
An extremely important archeological find that pointed to one of the greatest empires in history - the Raja Chola empire that ruled from the Maldives through India, Sri Lanka and right down to South East Asia found deep in the jungles of Johor a few years ago and made headlines in the mainstream newspapers in 2005, suddenly disappeared from the news.
The time has arrived for us to record our history as the facts tell us and not as we would like to wish it.
The truth will never hurt anyone. Lies, always will .

In an apparent response to our Education Minister cum Deputy Prime Minister's proposal to make History a compulsory subject in school, a number of articles have been circulated in the internet.
Books written by British provided facts which seemed contrary to those found in our history books written by local historians. So your guess is as good as mine as to which version will be adopted in our schools.
Michael Chick poked at Prof. Khoo and our description of 'Tanah Melayu' and his main points are as follows:
"Michael Chick goes back to old Arabic maps to find that Tanah Melayu was actually called Barr Chin or Tanah China.
Who says that the Peninsular was ALWAYS called "Tanah Melayu"? This is a recent British Term!
Prior to "Tanah Melayu" being a British Tag in the 19th century, the peninsular was formerly known as Malacca in the 15th century. The newly-renamed book "Sejarah Melayu" (previously known as "Asal-Usul Raja-Raja") mentions every other place from India to China, including the tiny-speck-of-dirt called Temasik EXCEPT "Tanah Melayu". Why was Tanah Melayu NEVER MENTIONED in Sejarah Melayu? Simple!! Because that was not its name!!
Tanah Melayu was NEVER the name until the British came and colonized the Peninsular.
(please see map below)
Only in the 19th Century was The Peninsular known as "Tanah Melayu".
In the 15th Century, the Peninsular was known by no other name than "The Malacca Peninsular".
The Peninsular was known as "Barr Kra" in the 10th Century. Before that, the Peninsular was known as the "Golden Chersonese" since the 2nd Century. "Golden Chersonese is the ancient name to refer to the Malay Peninsula by Claudius Ptolemy or Claudius Ptolemaeus (Greek: ; c. 90 - c.. 168). Known in English as Ptolemy, he was a Greek-speaking geographer, astronomer, and astrologer. During Roman times, the Malay Peninsula developed an international reputation as a source of gold; hence the name was given."
By the way, "Barr" simply means "Land" in the Persian Language. And Barr Kra above, means " Land of Kra " (as in reference to the Isthmus of Kra ).
The earliest known Arabic Maps refer to the Peninsular as "Barr CHIN". Where Chin refers to CHINA ! Why did the Arabs call this Peninsular "Tanah China" instead of "Tanah Melayu"?
The oldest known Arab Maps called the Peninsular "Barr Chin"; which translates to "Tanah China ", or " Land of Chinese ". BTN can now implement this new found knowledge into their syllabus. You cannot deny that you don't know it now! Perhaps if you spoke Hokkien, dressed like a Hokkien, and practised Hokkien Customs, the Hokkiens might be gracious enough to accept you. Sounds absurd? Absolutely; and so does the other "Great Race-Changing Trick" practised by UMNO. And I quote Prof Dr Anthony Milner (ANU), "If it's so easy to join a race, it must be equally easy to 'un-join' that race ..."

As MixMaster, I call upon all the mixed-blood people to form a political party.
Doesn't matter if you're half-Bugis, half-Javanese, half-Cantonese and half-Hakka or half-Malayalee and half-Ceylonese. Or if you're ChiBan (Chinese-Iban), ChiBai (Chinese-Bai), BurIt (Burmese-Italian), PanTat (Pan-Asian and Tahitian), KoTe (Kota Bharu-Kuala Terengganu).
As long as you're mixed, you're in.
Mixed people are the next step in evolution. We are genetically superior in every way. Why should we bow down to any pureblood, when our race is clearly superior?
Why should other races own anything, when we are the clear successors to humanity?
The mixed shall inherit the earth.
We have superior culture. Our martial arts (mixed martial arts) can kick any other martial arts' ass, and our mixed rice incorporates any and every pureblood cuisine.
And we will only get stronger.

It has been a while since I've written, and I know I should, but I don't feel like I want to. So, I've dug this one up... it's something I wrote a while back, and it's something that riles me even while I see no solution in sight.
The other day, I read a blogpost on wife abuse. Nothing spectacular there, I guess, it was sad and it was the usual thing: man hits wife, wife is broken, two children, wife won't leave.
Then, I read the 'comments' left behind by a whole host of caring Malaysians - and my eyes nearly popped! I couldn't believe what I was reading. I am still subscribed to the 'comments', so my eyes are still popping, and I am so angry I need to write!
The gist of what they're saying is this: she should pray. Then, she should leave. She should think of her children, and not just think about herself. She should be strong. She should know her rights. She should be smarter than to stay with an abuser who does not love her. She shouldn't have become his second wife in the first place. She shouldn't have defied her parents and run away with him. The idiocy goes on and on and on.
What are these people saying? Although they don't know it, they're saying it is HER fault! Like she has some control here; like she can actually do something about the situation she is in!
Where have these morons been all this time when there is so much in the news about wife abuse, and all it entails? Do they not read? Have they been living on Mars?
I am so riled, I am probably being incoherent. But I don't care.
There is one woman who asked what was wrong with her: she'd been brutalised and was black and blue, and still she would not leave? How nuts is she?
I think women are their (our?) worst enemy. We are seldom compassionate with our sisters. If one of us talks about how bad it was during a particular childbirth, there will always be another who can trump that story with gorier details. 'You think you had it bad? Did your uterus hang out of your vagina?! Mine did!' Try beating that, I tell you!
Shhheesh. No, no one's actually said that - to me. I can't vouch for what they're actually saying out there.
But back to the wife abuse: People seem to think that it is easy for a woman to just walk out. Take the children, and go.
They don't seem to remember that the abuser has already figured that that is what she wants to do, so he preempts her leaving by saying: if you leave, I will find you. I will take the children and you'll never see them again. I will kill you. Or, better: I will kill them. Women and our children: we're preprogrammed to die for them, I feel.
So, here is this over-flow of useless advice by a bunch of idiots, and all because they feel they are 'cleverer' than she is. Why? Because their husbands didn't abuse them. They think.
To all of them, I say, do this:
Look at your husband. Put a face on the abuser. Imagine that it is your husband who hit you.
Oh stop!!! You are probably just like me. I have said it so many times, it's boring even in my own ears: If a man ever touches me, that's IT! No second chance. I am so out that door - with my children lah.
But, I am talking in a vacuum. I am talking about an imaginary husband, an imaginary man. I am speaking vaguely, and in theory. I am not being real.
Now, I picture my husband hitting me... that is such a hard thing to do. Because he is such a loving and gentle man, and I know he will never strike me.
But what if I nag him and nag him, and F-word him. What if I do this for hours on end, and finally, in sheer frustration and rage, he hits me. What do I do? What will I think? How will I react?
Will I draw up to my full five feet and say, 'This is IT! I am so out of here!' and then walk out?
OR, will I cry and say that it is I who is sorry - I shouldn't have goaded him, I should have shut up, I should have... oh, I don't know, I can think of a hundred reasons why I would't want to walk out because it is him - the him that I love, the him that I know didn't mean to hit me, because he loves me.
Because it was my fault.
And that is what so many abused wives think: it was my fault. I didn't cook the dish right; I didn't keep the house clean enough; I didn't do this, I didn't do that. I was dressed wrong; I was dressed so provocatively it made me look cheap; the reasons would go on and on.
And then, I will forgive this imaginary husband who hit me - because I know he is sorry. And he may be crying, he may be on his knees saying how he will never do it again.
And I forgive him, because I know he means it. Because I want to believe with all my soul that he means it, and he will never hurt me again.
But he does. And we play out the same scene again. And again. And again.
And then, it is months. And then, years. When, do I decide that it's enough?
I am now a part of the syndrome of abuse. I become like all the other victims out there: I identify with my abuser and I know that he is right, and I am wrong. He has told me so many times, I believe it now. I know I deserve it. I know he is only trying to make me better than I am. I know he loves me: doesn't he say he is sorry? Doesn't he cry and love me so well after he has hit me?
And with the abuse will come the loving, be it sex, or a hug and soft, contrite words. And the abused will become a part of the dance: she knows that after the pain, he will be again become the man she ran away with, the man she fell in love with, the man who will protect her.
How does she leave this man? How does she walk away?
Does it look like it is an easy task ahead of her? Does it feel that it is obvious, what she should do?
In her shoes, do you think you would do better? Could you do better? Do you think you'll just up and leave?
Remember, that by this time, he has cut you off from family, from friends, from your neighbours, from anyone who may be able to help you. He has isolated you - in the midst of hundreds and hundreds of people, you are alone. And HE is your only saviour.
Do you think you will have the courage to just walk out the door? Do you think you will even think of doing that? Do you think it will be something that would be a 'natural next step' for you to take?
I think that the one thing that would break this cycle, for me, at least, would be if he hit my child. If he hurt my child, and I hear him weep and scream in pain - I know I would take something heavy and hard, and club him to death. NO ONE hurts my baby! No one.
But again, have you not heard of mothers, and fathers, who've known that the other was hurting their child, and they kept mum? Why? Because it is not an easy decision. That's why. It is never easy to do the 'right thing'. Most times, it is hard. And when it involves someone you love, it is complicated as well as difficult.
So, I don't know what to do. I have no advice for her, who is being abused. I feel her pain, and I physically hurt for her, but I know I cannot reach her, for what I say will fall on deaf ears, and eyes that do not see. She is lost inside his world, and I cannot reach her.
One day, maybe, he will cross the line. She will either die, or she will find the light inside her to get up and take her children and walk out. She'll chance whatever he says is out there. Something will click inside her, and she'll know that that's better than staying on with him. I pray that day comes soon.
And I can only pray that the ones I love don't ever have to face this. That they marry people who love them, and who will never strike them. Ever.
Violence is a sickness. If you don't start, you need never worry about getting in trouble because it is out of control. Unless you are part of the mafia or some gang lah. Then, it's your occupation - then, don't bring your 'work' home, is all I plead.
If you have daughters, tell them that they are loved. Teach them to be strong, and talk to them about everything. So that, if there is a problem, it will come out: in a story she tells you, in a comment she makes, in something she avoids talking about. And, so, you willknow - and as always, knowledge is power.
You may be able to reach her, and help her leave him. Or, you may be able to reach him and tell him you'll boil his balls in oil in he ever touches your child again - and you must have the means to actually make good on this threat, of course.
This is a sad world when we cannot empathise with someone who is hurting. It is a sad world when we judge and climb up on our high horses and say flippantly, 'just do it: leave'.
All this shows up is our stupidity, and our lack of knowledge and compassion.
All it says about us is that we are ostriches - hiding our heads in the sand, because we cannot face what is right in front of us: so much pain that it is unimaginable how she is able to bear it, and we feel impotent in our inability to make it go away.
And please, of all the things you do, please don't tell her to pray. No one is listening. If someone was, she wouldn't be suffering, surely? For what would the reason for this suffering be, pray tell.

White ash and beech
The green oh the green
In the jungle with misty clouds
Floating peacefully with Nature
The humming sound the mating calls
The green camouflaged
The lighted rays of hope
In the jungle of innocence
Before greedy souls suck it all
The dewdrops in the morning
The cycle begins and ends....
It takes care of each other
The way it should have been
Only if greedy souls stay
Learn the scriptures and understand
The way of life is inter-connected
Nobody is supreme...........
The green oh the green
The eyes yearn to be free
Living close to nature
The serenity and the falling dews

especially in this modern world where most people go for new and throw the old, because everyone seems to be in a hurry and no one has the time to reminisce...
TOKYO – For decades, the faded photograph of a baby Japanese girl and a child's colorful drawing hung on a wall in the home of Franklin Hobbs III in America.
As a 21-year-old U.S. soldier fighting on Iwo Jima, one of the bloodiest battles of World War II, Hobbs found them in the pocket of a fallen Japanese soldier and took them as a souvenir.
Until recently, he tried not to think too much about the battle or the photo and drawing. Then, a few years ago, at his wife's suggestion, he decided to try to give them back.
For the girl in the photo and her sister, they meant the world.
Hobbs, now 86, returned to Japan this week for the first time since the war and met with one of the daughters whose life he changed by returning the items. Chie Takekawa had drawn the picture of an air raid drill that Hobbs found on her father — a man she barely knew and whose remains have never been found.
"As a child, I had always wondered when my father would come home from the war," Takekawa, 74, said Thursday with a beaming Hobbs by her side. "I feel like he has actually come back after all these years. I am very grateful."
The story of the mementos very nearly ended on Hobbs' wall.
More, where that gem came from:

Black and White Trees in Ashes
Ashes of white
Once a while you see
On the ground littering flow
You wish you are somewhere
When it finally hitting you
You realize the tears and fear
It isn't over spilling on the ground
It is a warning Nature given
The white on the ground
On the beach homes tumbled down
Lives lost in sacrifices serving no purpose
When Nature roars the ugly truth of our greed
The mass graves of lost souls
On the ground ashes to ashes
For a while we will remember
Then we will back on our hunt
Ashes of white
Nature vomited on the land
Taking souls without warning
You wish you are somewhere

*I got the book for RM10 at Amcorp Mall flea market*
What I like:
1 - It teaches you about eating right. Cut the sugar. Eat good fat. Eat good carb. And lots of vegetables. Fresh preffered.
2 - You lose fat. Fast. My spare tyre is dissapearing in 2-3 weeks.
3 - It teaches you about controlling blood sugar. Good for diabetic prone Malaysians.
4 - It works.
5 - You lose your sugar/carb craving after sometime. But it would really test you.
6 - Many have sworn by its effectiveness. The testimonials are really motivating.
7 - You can eat all except sugary food and simple carb.
What I don't like:
1 - The promoted use of artificial sweeteners. And no, you can't convinced me with Splenda. Please google. And Stevia tastes like shite.
2 - Your food bill could go to the roof. I have three children.
3 - Recipes in the books are Westerns. Most of the ingredients are unavailable or expensive for local consumption.
4 - Induction phase was a real challenge. I mean real challenge.
5 - I didn't like the limited amount of fruits in the diet.
6 - Digestive trouble especially during induction. Constipation. Need multivitamin for that.
7 - Menu planning and home cooking are not easy for busy working mother.
What I did (and some modifications):
1 - I take no artificial sugar and never believe in them. I take sugar but twice a day the most. Mine was in the form of morning coffee and fruits.
2 - Eggs. Especially for breakfast.
3 - Rice, bread, potato, keledek, keladi - very minimum amount.
4 - Water. Plain water. Lots of it.
5 - When buying food at local canteen I usually skip rice and go for eggs, chicken and/or fish. There are plenty of cooked sayur. And no I'm not too cautious on the added sugar. If it's sweet then I'll skipped the soup. If it happened to be ayam masak merah when I thought it was ayam masak chilli then I'd just 'bedal'.
6 - Snacks: Water, cheese, nuts, seaweed. All three food mind you are quite pricey. OK not nut if you go for groundnut. Almond, cashew etc etc you know the price.
7 - Get the book on Atkins. Phase one or two is fine. As long as you grab the concept. There's plenty of information on the web too. Half of the books are usually menu plans. They are useless and impractical methinks. You have to modify or make your own. Tak percaya pergi check sendiri.
Mine you my induction was not so much of induction. I cheated a lot. But I am not going to go for induction again. I don't think that it is healthy to stretch your body to that particular extent. But then I think for my body weight, I 'd rather be burning slow and steady so phase 2 should be the best.
After some modifications, I am so far OK with this eating style. But sometimes aku jadi malas nak makan sebab kena fikir dulu apa boleh makan dan ada masanya kena buat kira-kira pula dalam kepala. Boring betul! However afterwards bila timbang tadaaaa... I lost 5 kg so far. (Mind you, itu baru perut, yo. Banyak lagi nak kena bakar ni.) Sekarang sudah biasa sikit, so I am sort of used to what to eat and what not to eat.
Atkins, coupled with exercise, you'll lose weight faster. But I am yet to verify that. Baru semalam mula bersenam dengan betul-betul. Kah kah kah...
Just remember, simple carb is the enemy.
