Yesterday was Lee Hom’s 37th birthday. THIRTY SEVENTH.
That’s a pretty big number.
How did he become so old?
The thought of it amused me. Unbelievable. Last I knew, he was just 25.
Then I remembered my own age. I am already 27 this year. When Lee Hom was himself 25, I was 15 – the year I knew him.
Then, I pictured myself in Lee Hom’s shoes at my present age – how it must have been, and I remembered myself at the age of 15.
I felt the passing of time. I felt how much things have since changed. How much I have grown mentally and spiritually.
How far I have since travelled in discovering myself, my path and my destiny.
Interesting how Lee Hom’s birthday led me to reflect on myself.
Happy birthday, Lee Hom. May you continue to grow and evolve too.
Since I got my new SHARP Aquos TV few months ago, I have invited quite a number of friends and relatives over at my place to chill and watch movies and dramas together. Since previously I was using a rather small one, this new 52″ Aquos is really bringing more fun to my living room than before.
So of course when you have people coming over for movie nights n all, people tend to comment when they see the new TV. After a while, I sort of figured out the most frequent comments regarding the Aquos. Below are some of the quotes. Quoting my friends and family randomly.
One of the few comments I got was how awesome the TV and the images it produces. As though they were watching those TV demos at electrical appliances shops. As you know, those merchants tend to play videos out of BluRay, hence the clarity and vibrancy is top notch. This goes to my Sharp Aquos as well. When I play full HD videos which I got on my Apple TV, it’s as though they are watching demos cos it was SO SHARP< SO VIBRANT and SO AWESOME.
Some of my relatives who only come to my house like 2-3 times a year, they were impressed by my 52″. Without even switching on the TV, they were slowly admiring the design of it. Since the border is quite thin and the whole TV itself is very thin, the SHARP Aquos does look quite futuristic. I personally like the fact that it stick quite near to my wall due to the thinness.
Yup. When you have a TV capable of viewing HD videos, everything hidden before or on other TVs will be revealed right in front of you. Blemishes is visible, wrinkles is visible, textures on the table or even the road, they are all so clear and visible to the naked eye. Quite an amazing thing to happen on the TV, really an eye opener.
You know, when we watch movies, we tend to dim the lights or switch them off totally. Apart from the breathtaking images on the 52″, the little SHARP logo at the bottom glows. It’s like the Star Trek logo and it glows to show that the TV is switched on or on standby mode. Quite useful.
Lastly, when watching F1 or football matches, my dad kept on saying that it looks so real its as if he was there. Thats how realistic the images produced by the Aquos.dtsv.dtse_post_6681_permalink = 'http://www.smashpop.net/what-friends-say-about-my-aquos'; dtsv.dtse_post_6681_title = 'What Friends Say About My Aquos';

How often do you give yourself a self-test in finance, if ever? Well, here are a few questions for you to mull over and figure out the answers.
Your monthly net income is RM2100. Your home loan is RM900 per month and car loan is RM500 per month. You are also making a monthly payment of RM300 towards settling a huge outstanding credit card debt. What is your debt payment-to-income ratio?
The house loan payment is not included as it is a long-term liability. The general rule-of-thumb is “do not spend more than 20 percent of your net income on consumer credit payments.” A lower percentage (e.g. 15 percent) is better and safer. If your take-home pay is RM3000, your consumer credit payments should be around RM450 per month only (15 percent).
You bought an electrical item with a RM60 down payment. You have to make subsequent payments of RM70 for 36 months. What is your total cost for buying the electrical item?
Answer: RM60 + (RM70 x 36) = RM2, 580
You purchase a packaged food (185 g) for RM4.85. Then you purchase a similar product (300 g) of a different brand for RM6.00. Which product is cheaper?
1st product: RM4.85 ÷ 185 = 2.62 cents per gram
2nd product: RM6.00 ÷ 300 = 2 cents per gram
The second product is slightly cheaper.
You are single and your take-home pay is RM3250 per month. You calculated your monthly expenses to be RM2150. How much should you save for an emergency fund?
Monthly expenses x 3 months = RM2150 x 3 = RM6450
This is the minimum amount to save which you can increase as you see fit.
How much interest would you earn if you deposited RM5000 at 6 percent for 30 months?
Interest = RM5000 x 0.06 x 2.5 years (30 months)

Sorry Blog for not updating you in the past two weeks. I was extremely fatigued by the three flights it took to travel from Washington D.C. to Malaysia after having just recovered from surgery and Pneumonia. My mind and body needed a lot of rest, and I could only manage brief jottings in Facebook.
Anyhow, now that my body is sufficiently rested, I am gradually resuming my normal daily life. I have been silently following the drama that erupted over the Malaysian 13rh General Election results. I do have an opinion, but on seeing the existing degree of tension, I decided not to add fuel to fire and kept my opinion to myself. I have, however, painted something to defuse the tension. It will soon be revealed over the weekend.
In respect to my health, I have been eating well thanks to my mom who adapted to my new diet and food preference. I had to lie down a lot in the first one and a half weeks after my return. Firstly, I was extremely low in energy due to the travel fatigue. Secondly, there is nerve impingement at the end of my spine.
Evem after one and a half week, the pain did not go away as I had hoped, so I went to the nearby Assunta Hospital where an x-ray was done. Results showed that there was no bone or tissue abnormality, so the doctor diagnosed my condition as a nerve impingment. I was given nerve relaxants and two special pain killers for a week. If the pain doesn’t go away after one week, he will send me for Physiotherapy. The doctor did not charge me for consultation fees. May God bless his heart.
Now, anticipate the reveal of my painting.
Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 17.5 2013
New Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar vows to return the streets to the people while making public safety and security his top priority will be tested not be mere words but by factual success in reducing increasing crime in the country. Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar also faces an additional challenge to disprove negative public perception that he is politicising the police force for BN by now focusing on arresting criminals and not PR leaders
Public safety was a general election issue with the people expressing concern over rising cases of snatch thefts, wayside robberies and shootings despite claims that the crime index dipped 7.6% in 2012, with 153,811 cases recorded compared with 166,295 in 2011, a drop of 12,484 cases. With many victims from crimes no one believed the claims by the police or Home Minister Datuk Hishamudin Tun Hussein Onn of a decrease of 27% in the crime rate from 2009 to 2012, compared with a 33% increase between 2004 and 2008.
Unless Tan Sri Khalid shows results of his success in capturing criminals than dealing with political enemies of BN, Tan Sri Khalid may be an even worse IGP than his predecessor. I have a bad personal experience with Tan Sri Khalid, who attacked me publicly when he was Selangor Chief Police Officer for refusing to co-operate with the police for not wanting to record my police statement, even though I had had already done so. Even though Tan Sri Khalid admitted later he made a mistake, neither did he apologise nor withdraw his attack against me.
I hope Tan Sri Khalid will act more humbly in interacting with and listening to the public. After all we all make mistakes but what is more important is how we learn and deal with the mistakes made.
The Penang state government and DAP is willing to co-operate with the police to fight crime as this is too important an issue to be politicised. DAP proposes a 3-prong approach namely,
1. increasing police personnel patrolling the streets by 100%,
2. encourage community policing through voluntary patrols in their community by local residents such as Penang’s Pasukan Peronda Sukarela(PPS); and
3. commitment to instal street lights and CCTVs, especially in crime hotspots to discourage and identify crime.
Let us make Malaysian streets, workplace, shops, recreation places, schools and homes safe for our women and children

Kenyataan Media oleh Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang merangkap Setiausaha Agung DAP, Lim Guan Eng di Kuala Lumpur pada 17 Mei 2013.
Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar mesti membuang persepsi negatif masyarakat bahawa beliau mempolitikkan pasukan Polis demi BN dengan memberi tumpuan kepada membanteras jenayah dan bukan pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat.
Ketua Polis Negara yang baru, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar telah berikrar untuk menjadikan keselamatan rakyat sebagai keutamaan demi mengembalikan persekitaran yang baik untuk orang ramai. Ikrar tersebut pastinya akan diuji supaya tidak menjadi janji mulut semata-mata tetapi mesti dibuktikan dengan kejayaan menurunkan kadar jenayah di dalam negara. Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar juga berdepan cabaran untuk membuang persepsi negatif masyarakat bahawa beliau mempolitikkan pasukan Polis demi BN dengan memberi tumpuan kepada membanteras jenayah dan bukan pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat.
Keselamatan awam adalah isu pilihan raya umum yang menyaksikan rakyat meluahkan kebimbangan mereka berikutan peningkatan kes ragut, rompakan tepi jalan dan kes tembak menembak meski pun ada dakwaan bahawa indeks jenayah telah menurun sebanyak 7.6% dalam tahun 2012, dengan 153,811 kes direkodkan berbanding 166.295 kes pada tahun 2011; penurunan sebanyak 12,484 kes. Dengan begitu banyak mangsa jenayah, tidak ada sesiapa pun yang mempercayai dakwaan pihak polis atau bekas Menteri Dalam Negeri Datuk Hishammuddin Tun Hussein bahawa terdapat penurunan sebanyak 27% dalam kadar jenayah dari tahun 2009 sehingga 2012, jika dibanding dengan peningkatan sebanyak 33% di antara tahun 2004 sehingga 2008.
Tan Sri Khalid boleh menjadi Ketua Polis Negara yang lebih teruk daripada pendahulunya, kecuali jika beliau boleh menunjukkan kejayaannya membanteras penjenayah dan bukan menguruskan musuh politik BN. Saya mempunyai pengalaman buruk dengan Tan Sri Khalid, sewaktu beliau menyerang saya secara terbuka ketika menjadi Ketua Polis Selangor kononnya kerana saya enggan bekerjasama dengan pihak polis yang mahu mengambil kenyataan saya, sungguhpun saya sudah berbuat demikian. Sungguh beliau kemudiannya mengakui kesalahannya, beliau tidak pun meminta maaf atau menarik balik serangannya terhadap saya.
Saya harap Tan Sri Khalid akan bertindak secara lebih merendah diri apabila berinteraksi dan mendengar keluhan masyarakat umum. Kita semua pernah melakukan kesilapan namun apa yang penting ialah bagaimana kita belajar dan menguruskan kesilapan yang telah dilakukan.
Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang dan parti DAP bersedia untuk bekerjasama dengan pihak polis untuk membanteras jenayah kerana ini adalah isu yang terlalu penting untuk dipolitikkan. DAP menyarankan pendekatan tiga cabang iaitu,
1. Menambahkan bilangan anggota peronda di jalanraya sebanyak 100%,
2. Menggalakkan pempolisan komuniti memalui rondaan sukarela di dalam kejiranan oleh penduduk setempat seperti Pasukan Peronda Sukarela di Pulau Pinang, dan
3. Komitmen untuk memasang lampu jalan serta kamera litar tertutup (CCTV), terutamanya di kawasan panas bagi menghalang dan mengenalpasti jenayah.
Marilah kita menjadikan jalanraya, tempat kerja, kedai, pusat rekreasi, sekolah, dan perumahan di Malaysia selamat untuk semua, terutamanya wanita dan kanak-kanak.

Former English captain David Beckham is set to retire from professional football at the end of the season. Outstanding player, never the best but arguably the most famous of his generation. If you are not a soccer fan you might not know who’s Cannavaro, Ronaldinho, or even Messi, but you probably know who’s David Beckham.
Here’s a video from 1996, Manchester United vs Wimbledon, a goal which puts the 21-year-old Beckham on global headlines (for the first time). The rest is history.
