From Mirror to Barbecue

Posted: 11 May 2010 01:17 AM PDT

A quick story before I go on and on about how awesome my new place is:

I'd been on the lookout on craigslist for most things, most recently being a full-lengthed mirror. I found a seller, emailed her and almost sealed the deal, when I decided I didn't want it, because I couldn't figure where to put it in my tiny room.

So I asked my housemate if she wanted it, and she did. We went looking for the seller's place, not too far from our house (nothing is, in Pullman), but somewhere obscure enough for us to have to ask some people at house number 720 where house number 722 was.

The people we had asked were setting up a barbecue, and as we walked pass them we noted the food that was arrayed, wishing we knew them to be invited.

One of them showed us house 722, and then proceeded to invite us to the barbecue! 

Turns out, they were a Christian youth group and every Monday they organize barbecues and we were welcome to join them today and next week and every other week.

HOW AWESOME IS THAT. 

Us, being starving, poor college kids, did not resist their invitation and joined in the meal. Those were some pretty good burgers, especially since they were free. 

I've pretty much been in awe of how things went down this evening. From offering a mirror deal to getting free food and being invited to more. Huh.


Interview: Zee Avi on life, music and Elijah Wood

Posted: 11 May 2010 12:40 AM PDT

Sarawak-born and New York-based singer songwriter, Zee Avi, has definitely come a long way from her early homemade videos beginnings. The diminutive 23-year-old was discovered through YouTube and, before she knew it, Zee boarded the plane for L.A., recorded an album under Brushfire Records and the rest, as you already know, is history. Taking a break from her whirlwind journey, KLue speaks to Zee about life, music and Elijah Wood.

~

It's your first time back in KL after recording an album and touring the U.S. Was your homecoming concert what you expected?

It was everything and more. The vibe, the energy and just seeing everyone that night was just incredible. I couldn't ask for a better homecoming gig really.

Was there any pressure because you were going to perform back home?
No there wasn't, I was just really excited. I was like, 'finally'!

What's it like living in New York?
It's okay lah! Well, I like New York for being an angry city and I accept its character. It's lively then it's gloomy and cold. There's so much to do and it's the city of the world. It's pretty amazing.

Were you giddy with excitement when you finally saw Elijah Wood and Shirley Manson soundtracked to your song "Just You And Me" in the Oliver Peoples' Spring campaign?
That's crazy right? I found out about it on Twitter! It's such a honour. The director, Autumn De Wilde, is such an amazing photographer - she did my publicity shots, she did my cover and everything. Yeah, my jaw dropped so down the floor.

Have you learned anything from your first album that you'd like to use in making your upcoming album?

The first album is just an introduction so it's a scratch on the surface. The second one is going to have more depth because I have been tapping deeper into knowing myself and knowing how I feel about things. Hopefully that projects into the new stuff. The first record taught me it's okay to have dark lyrics with a lighter sounding melody.

When can we expect the new album?
[Laughs] Good question! Maybe end of this year or next year. I'm still doing the experiencing part.

Condition Code

Remember this messenger bag? I got it from Asos at a hefty price and guess what? The quality is shit, and it IS very soft since it's leather and all, but too soft it lose its shape and the buckle came off. Like the twisty buckle was detached from the flap! How am I suppose to use the handle if the buckle cannot be locked?? And let my belongings fall out of it? =( So sad... It's fated la that I have to get either PS1 or Alexa cause then it'll rid my worries of buckle is faulty blablabla...


Oh and did I mention that the strap is like totally not supportive of the bag? Cause I discovered that there's a stitching at the middle of the strap, and the stitching is getting loose wtf. -_- I'm not gonna lie that this bag cost me 70 pounds, which is a lot... And I paid a hell sum to ship it back for a refund, but it's better I get about 70% of the money I paid for than to have a bag that I cannot use at all right?

T_T So sad, I really liked the bag, but it's such poor quality, and it's not like how it looks like in pictures. =( And the quality is shit leh!!! The seams were not coated with a layer or plastic to seal it together!!! And it wasn't sewn properly too. =( Maybe this is a lesson to teach me not to buy cheap things wtf (not even cheap lor -_-) Maybe buying designer brands DOES have its boons. :)


Life has been tough on me, but I am standing strong (and sleepy). Have been sleeping at 3am and waking up at 7 am just cause my body clock decided to fuck me up. And I've been waking up early during weekends as well for work. And then sleeping late for completing assignments. If you're thinking that I'm screwing my course for working, you're wrong. I am the type who can only work at night, and I procrastinate in the day, so why not work while I procrastinate!?

And pimples omg... Suppose to be cleared by now after menses but then it's still popping out due to (a) stress (b) not enough rest (c) JUNK FOOD -_- Have been binging on grain waves (mmm so good) and coffee I shall now announce I am a coffee addict!!! Hi I am Hui Ting and I am a coffee addict. MMMMMM Gloria Jean's Ice coffee with whipped cream with caramel sauce and sprinkled cinnamon is so good!! Not to mention the calories I'm taking in T_T fml

REMARRYING IN LATER YEARS

Posted: 10 May 2010 11:09 PM PDT

If you are an older adult, divorced or widowed, would you consider remarriage? Not an easy question to answer for a number of reasons:
  • As an older adult, you are already quite set in your ways. It would take a lot of effort to give and take to make the marriage work.
  • At 60+, health can be a big issue. What if your new spouse is diagnosed with a health problem that requires 24/7 care from you? Are you prepared to be his/her caregiver for the rest of your sunset years?
  • If you are widowed, would your in-laws think less of you for remarrying?
  • Your new partner's children may not accept you. They may resent the thought of having a stepmother or stepfather.
  • There's also the issue of inheritance. Would a new spouse mean a new will? This might sour your relationship with your partner's adult children.
These are just a few of the issues and complications that might arise when older adults remarry. Perhaps one solution is to seek companionship or co-habitation rather than remarriage. Unfortunately, in Asian societies, co-habitation is frowned upon regardless of the age. Elderly couples living together outside the sanctity of marriage would be viewed as setting a bad example for young people. In Malaysia, if they are Muslim, they would be arrested under Syariah law!

No wonder remarriage among the elderly remains uncommon. However, the situation might change in the near future with more "matrimonial meetings" or marriage fairs like the one held recently in Ahmedabad, India. Over 300 single, divorced and widowed senior citizens in their 60s and 70s gathered to make friends and enjoy lunch together, and at the same time check out who's available as potential life-partners.

Surveys have shown that a happy marriage or relationship helps us live longer and healthier. That's good enough reason to start dating again.


No big pay hike for security guards: S Subramaniam screwed up BIG time!

Posted: 10 May 2010 11:00 PM PDT

No big pay hike for security guards
By Tan Yi Liang

PETALING JAYA: Security guards expecting a hefty jump in their take home pay from July 1 are going to be severely disappointed - the actual wage increases are far lower than announced by the Human Resources Minister on Thursday.

Dr S Subramaniam
According to a statement from the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) executive director Shamsuddin Bardan today, the Minister Datuk Dr S Subramaniam was in error when he announced the 67 to 75% increase for the minimum monthly wage for security guards.

"The Minister's earlier statements to the media regarding the amount of minimum monthly wages for security guards was misleading and had unnecessarily caused much anxiety to the security companies and false expectations on the part of the employees," said Shamsuddin.
Subramaniam announced in parliament that the take-home pay for workers in the sector after the increase, which would take effect from July 1 this year would range between RM1,100 and RM1,450 per month, a major step up from the current take-home pay of RM300 to RM400 per month provided for under the Wages Council Act 1947.
Over 150,000 Malaysians and 40,000 foreigners working as security guards were expected to benefit from the increase.
However, according to a statement issued by the MEF, the actual minimum wages which will kick in from July 1 under Schedule Subsection 2(1) of the Wages Councils (Wages Regulations Order) (Statutory Minimum Remuneration of Private Security Guard) Order 2010 will be much lower.
The revised minimum wages according to location are:
>Area A – Penang, Selangor, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Putrajaya, and Southern Johor (Johor Baru, Kota Tinggi, Kulaijaya and Pontian) -- minimum wage of RM 700 per month
>Area B – Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Perak, Pahang, Terengganu, Northern Johor (Kluang, Batu Pahat, Mersing, Muar, Ledang and Segamat) and Sarawak -- minimum wage of RM600 per month
>Area C – Sabah and Federal Territory of Labuan -- minimum wage of RM550 per month, while
>Area D – Kedah, Kelantan and Perlis -- minimum wage of RM500 per month
According to Shamsuddin, the revised scale was a relief for security companies.
"After much anxiety, the security companies employing security guards under private agency licensed under Section 3 of the Private Agencies Act 1971 for the purposes of providing security services are relieved as they are in a better position to manage the increases in terms of costs," said Shamsuddin.

Meanwhile, the Securities Services Association of Malaysia wants the government to postpone the pay hike for security guards, scheduled to begin on July 1, to next year.

Association president Datuk Shaheen Mirza Habib said that enforcing the pay hike would render 300 Bumiputera security companies to "close shop" as they were currently bound by contracts signed with government agencies, government-linked companies and the private sector.

"We are asking for a postponement of six months, that is until Jan 1, 2011, to solve issues concerning the service contracts with the private sector," he said after attending an urgent meeting to discuss the matter here today.

He said the association could not afford to give the raise as the value of the contracts signed with their clients remain unchanged.

If the pay hike were to be implemented, between 50,000 and 60,000 local workers were expected to lose their jobs, he said. -- theSun

MALAYSIA ON TRIAL: Karpal moves to impeach Saiful, decision tomorrow

Posted: 10 May 2010 10:32 PM PDT

LIVE REPORT UPDATED 10.48 Saiful had stated the intercourse to have been non-consensual, whereas Anwar is charged under Section 377b for consensual sex.

Saiful was asked by Karpal if he had always stated that the sodomy was against his will and Saiful said he had.
Karpal said that in Malaysia, we knew that sex between males done with consent was also an offence but the witness had repeatedly said and maintained that the sex was non-consensual. Thus, Karpal moved to impeach Saiful on grounds of a 'hunch' that the witness had lied.

Siri Bercakap Dengan Miki – Hantu Jagung

Posted: 10 May 2010 09:23 PM PDT

About a couple of months ago, Miki was being naughty, I think it had something to do with wanting to go somewhere that's dark WITH ME or playing a game repeatedly over and over again WITH ME. But one thing for sure is, whatever that he was doing WITH ME was making me so stressed I wanted to jump up and down and up and down while pulling my hair.

So I said "Stop it Miki, kat sini ada hantu!"

And like magic Miki stopped whatever naughty things he was doing and sat still for a few minutes. The few minutes that's enough decrease my chances of becoming a mental hospital patient.

Azman voiced out a question to me later; is it necessary to introduce him to Hantu so early? Well, the first time Miki have "seen" a ghost was during our trip to Genting and some dude in a "ghost" costume waved at him and freaked him out a little bit. I told him that that's a Hantu but the Hantu is ok, don't be afraid.

Miki was 24 months at that time, very small, yes! But I asked Azman back; did he want Miki to start being scared of ghosts ALREADY or having me dead with a brain spasm ALREADY?

For a moment he looked rather confused with the options (tampar kang!) but then we both just shrugged it off. After all Miki didn't get spooked of the ghosts, he only got awed! They fascinate him, these ghosts, for being able to be so strong and yet look so creepy.. And can do stuff like roar and walk robotic etc…

Miki's favourite bedtime story currently is "Cerita Hantu Jagung". I know he made this character up himself, for I never specifically described features of any particular ghost to him at all. Walaupun actually kalau dia tengok muka mak dia pagi-pagi pun is already a close resemblance. To one of those vampires at Volturi. hehe

Anywayyyy….this ghost of Miki's imagination is derived from his ultimate favourite food – corn and his current obsession –hantu. Every night before bed we would ask me or his Dad to tell this story and each time we can only speak of two to three sentences only.

hantu jagung

Miki – "Daddy, cerita hantu jagung Daddy?" no more dadong. He can pronounce jagung already.
Azman – "Ok! Mula-mula kan… ada sorang abang ni, dia jalan-jalan kat dalam hutan. Lepas tu datang Hantu Jagung…"
Miki – "Muya-muya kan… abang tu datang..pastu hantu jagung tu jerit..Aaaaa!…abang tu gigit hantu jagung tu…
Azman – "Aah.. pastu .."
Miki – "Pastu hantu jagung tu jatuh longkang! Padan muka hantu jagung tu.."
Azman – "OK!" Who is telling who bedtime story?"
Miki – "Abang tu ambik udang! Dia potong potong potong jagung tu!" sambil buat aksi.
Azman – "Ambik apa?"
Miki – "Abang ambik udang!"
Azman – "PEDANG!"
Miki – "Abang ambik pudang, potong potong jagung tu!" sambil buat aksi yang ganas, siap berdiri-diri atas katil dalam bilik gelap dah tutup lampu.
Azman – "Hmmmm…"
Miki – "Hantu jagung tu kejar abang tu… abang tu….."
Both Azman and I had fallen asleep by then and Miki still telling himself his bedtime story….

Mummy and Daddy loves you son.. very much….


Perception...

Posted: 10 May 2010 05:37 PM PDT

How many of you playing Facebook games... my colleagues encountered an error in FB games and got so annoy then start complaining the game sucks.

Sometime i just wondered someone out there maybe affected by these games and got annoying... or just got too into the game and ended up spend RM400+ on Farmville. not sure what's the point to play this game. Satisfactory? Release tensions?

My company management allows facebook in the office. Yup! you din hear wrongly. Facebook is allow in the office. Wanna join the workforce? Reason being the management needs their team to be creative when come to getting some of the product that we sells to be up to the trend of the social networking market... Of coz as a staff, we also need to behave ourself, not full 8 hours on facebook. Again, i'm the only one in the office that who is not playing any FB games. My engineers always indicates that i'm a bored guy.. coz no FB game :(

Are you a FB game player? If not, you must be perceived as a boring person like what my engineer thinks about me... hahahaha :p


Don't our opinion count at all?

Posted: 09 May 2010 12:17 PM PDT

One year ago, part of the grounds along the road leading to the Penang Botanical Garden was used as the venue of numerous orchid shows. It was also shared by some hawkers and traders who had been here for a very long time. Today, the whole place has been flattened and two monstrous arches are being erected.


The funds come from the Federal Government. The Penang state government has no say in it. In fact, the Federal people threatened to cut off funding for other projects in Penang if the state government did not agree to this project.

Sad. The Federal government is approving all sorts of projects in Penang with complete disregard to the opinions of the state government and the people of Penang. As a result, they are irreversibly spoiling the environment here. Previously, the dense foliage used to muffle the noise of guns firing from the nearby Penang Shooting Club. When I was at the Garden last month, I could hear the noise in the furthest parts of the Garden. The place is no longer a peaceful sanctuary for people to visit.

By the way, I was upset to see the very ironical red warning sign at the entrance to the club. "Kawasan Larangan," it said, with a rather graphic illustration of someone getting shot. Rather insensitive. I suppose if anyone were to stray into the premises or grounds of the club, the members would all train their guns and other weapons on the moving target.
 
Another disturbing example of the Federal government's heavy hand in disbursing funds is the on-going project to "improve" the funicular train service at Penang Hill. The train service has stopped since January this year so that the present tracks can be realigned into a single one. There'll be new trains that can whizz passengers from the bottom station to the top station in less than 15 minutes. I hope the engineers from the Federal government know what they are doing because if the train service fails in the future, it will be a disaster for tourism in the state.

Anyway, last week, there was an excellent story in theSun newspaper on the Penang Botanical Garden arches. The writer, Himanshu Bhatt, said that since "early this year, a scene some may well describe as one of utter horror has greeted Penangites and hundreds of visitors as they approach the island's beloved Botanic Gardens, one of the oldest colonial-era parks in Southeast Asia. A huge swathe of land in front of the magnificent century-old raintree that looms above the gardens' famous gates has been turned into a monstrous dusty scab, with two gigantic phallic structures built on it."

He couldn't have described it better. You can read the rest of his story here.
