Terrible day..Luckily I am SAFE!

Yesterday, after getting in my beloved Proton Saga, I realized that my rear left tyre is somehow punctured. So, I decided to go to the nearby petrol kiosk to refill air. After refilling air, I continue my journey. But soon after that, I realize that my tyre is getting worse. After picking up my gf's brother, we think that we should change the tyre at the roadside because the condition is very bad. After I parked at the roadside, I saw this condition of my tyre!

Really REALLY damaged!!

Have a closer look here..

I don't know what's wrong with the tyre because before it it was okay. Wonder is it someone's prank on my tyre..

Well..Today sent the car to factory to change a new set of tyres to prevent accidence in the future..And WTH! They checked and said my car got a lot problem. All the repair fee will cost RM 1200 - RM 1300 without the tyres. And NOW I AM SICK..I guess, I am really in a bad luck these days... :(

I chose this blog title after reading these phrases in "The World is Flat" by Thomas L. Friedman.

- Change is hard. Change is hardest on those caught by surprise. Change is hardest on those who have difficulty changing too. But change is natural; change is not new; change is IMPORTANT. -

Actually I started reading this book many many months ago, but due to my hectic schedule in the university, I couldn't spend extra time on this stimulating book. Since I am having my holidays now, I guess, it is time for me to digest the info again - I read from the first page.

The world is changing, the climate is changing, people is changing, everything changes. In Bangalore, India, changes happened there too. Who said they are very poor in technology, who said they are lagging far behind the movement of the world? Americans or the Brits outsource a lot of their work to Bangalore for their high numbers in workers, I mean low salary workers. Call centers, accountancy firms there are helping the Americans to work on their tasks. One American accountant's salary could be worth 3 or 4 accountants in India. If I can choose, why not I outsource to India for better cost and high efficiency?

- There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction - by Winston Churchill

A lot of working environments have changed. For example, an airlines named JetBlu have their operators work at home. People such as housewives could just stay at home, taking care of their house chores while taking calls and assisting people to get their flight booking done! In Malaysia, we also have NuffNang which allow their workers to work at wherever they like as long as they get their job done. From my opinion, this is just great as we can work in an environment that we feel cozy and less stressful.

- A sense of solidarity and common purpose with our fellow inhabitants of Earth, and a real sense of responsibility towards future generations is lacking - by Daisaku Ikeda in Education Proposal, "The Challenge of Global Empowerment: Education for a Sustainable Future" (2002)

I caught this sentence by reading Cosmic, a monthly magazine of Soka Gakkai Malaysia. We need to change! We MUST change! Our ability to survive depends on profound change within ourselves, a deep rethinking about our way of life. Just imagine that, if people don't change(in a better way of course), history Adolf Hitler created can be not a history but also present and future. There can be more terrorist attacks if we kept using weapons against them and kill more of their families. We have to change our mindset, abolish all nuclear weapons in this world(inspiration from Josei Toda's Anti Nuclear Weapon Declaration in year 1957).

- The key to change... is to let go of fear - by Rosanne Cash

Many people fear of changes. Sudden change in planning, something happens suddenly. Changes doesn't mean it will not be good. If we could take up the courage and give it our best shot, probably we can get better result! Never try, never know.

- Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending - by Maria Robinson

- Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever - by Keri Russell

So, let's change. Hope all of us will change, create positive impact to our surroundings and lead our family, our nation, and worldwide to CHANGE!

November 1st, Malaysia is just full of Surprises!

Just like what you see above, International Islamic University Malaysia(IIUM) just declared as a "No Dating Territory"

A banner in Gombak campus stated there, "IIUM is an Islamic territory. No Dating. ALLAH is watching us"

Funny? Haha.. Although it is said not an initiative from the university authority, but I guess they are implementing it in IIUM too.

Hmmm..I just wonder how you define no dating... never walk side-by-side(guy n gal)? Or should they set a 5 metres away rules if you need a companion to walk you back? What a joke.. Thank goodness I am studying in UKM.. :)

Pumpkin(Naked) Run, on the Halloween..

It happened for nearly a decade in Colorado, in the city of Boulder. In Halloween, this city got its wackiest tradition - Naked Pumpkin Run. Just imagine that, in the late night, everyone to the street with the Jack-O-Lantern ONLY for a jog.

People are basically naked, just with the pumpkin head and sneakers for a run. But too bad, this year there will be a STOP for this GREAT phenomenon as the Police Chief Mark Beckner fears things will get out of hands. He will station 40 officers and 2 SWAT team to patrol around the usual spots. Aarrghh...too bad....

Let's see what their mayor said about it...

"I'm a little old for it, but it could be pretty cool to be running around with a pumpkin on your head and not much else," says the 57-year-old mayor.

Cool? Haha..But this could NEVER happen in Malaysia of course.. Everyone will be jailed immediately, and the policemen will earn a fortune from proper and improper 'saman'..

See policemen, better RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!

Wow!! Today received an email from Taiwan, from the executive of the elementary school that I went there as volunteering English and Mathematics teacher. When wanna go to hand up the Oceanography report to Dr. Liew, suddenly rain. No choice, I go to library to take a break there. Without my laptop(my laptop is in my room!), I was using my HTC to check email there and I saw his email with an attachment. I was so excited wondering what attachment it could be... So I quickly requested Gan to borrow me his laptop to check email(in the end facebook a while also la..) So, I open up my gmail account..Oh...It's a picture...But what are they doing, are they planting a tree or something??(thumbnail shown in gmail account)...Due to curiosity, I open the image immediately..
