Townsville, City-ville… Energyville!

I saw an advertisement in Fortune (or was it Time) magazine by Chevron. For the ignorant Malaysians, Chevron is a large oil company in the US.

Chevron has created the game Energyville to educate the public about energy and what not. Most probably in response to the public’s unease towards petrol being a not-so-green energy.

*clickity click! —> www.willyoujoinus.com/energyville

Energyville is similar to Sim City. You’re in charge of a city. You need to power it with various forms of energy. The game list the pro & cons, the developement, the future of each type of energy e.g. biomass, nuclear, petrol, solar, wind, etc… But keep in mind that this ‘green energy’ game is created by an oil company. Read the ‘facts‘ with a pinch a salt. Some are simply ridiculous facts that even n00bs (e.g. Choon Meng, other typical Malaysians) would laugh at it.

I can’t move on to the next level without putting in petrol because planes and ground vehicles will still depend heavily on petrol. Cheh!

I applaud Chevron’s effort to educate the public about energy issues. Hopefully Malaysians (being katak di bawah tempurung & super n00b about all kinds world/national issues) can learn a thing a two out of this game. I only wish my friends can do just a little more to be more ‘green’, like refusing plastic bag when buying only 1-2 items.

In any case, culture-buzz.com have noted that…

[……]the company doesn’t seem to be trying to inform Internet users about ecological concerns as much as it seems to want people to be aware of how difficult it is to provide energy to a city.

What can I say… it’s an American oil company afterall.

Links and other opinions here and there and here.

To greener future and beyond,

P.S. There’s also a video of the game… X^D

Bee En downfall parody

Small talk…
Pak Lah and Najis changed portfolio. Najis? Finance?? Pak Lah? Defence?? Nothing more than a superficial move.

KLCI in vomit blood

Small talk…
My posting of Martin Niemöller’s When They Came proved to be prophetic. =)

________________________________________

As expected, KLCI lost slightly less than 1 pint of blood (out of 8. I got my own cacat calculations lah). Serious enough to be admitted. But far from dying. And as of today, it lost another 1 and a half pint more blood.

Lots of ‘experts’ in various internet forums are now saying the the full effect of the sub-prime crisis is being felt now… you know lah, the Americans and their complicated financial systems and creative financing and labyrinthine derivatives… sh!t like this is simply waiting to happen.
If it’s complicated, confusing and in Greek, sh!t will happen. If I can’t understand it, it’s not worth it.

Malaysian’s situation is made worse by the stupiak political scene. We’ve been on autopilot since the day Pak Lah became da man. I’m not sure where our country is headed. I can’t feel the vibrance of development in the air.

The KLCI apparently have been dropping just a wee bit faster than expected. So lots of people have been flip-flopping their position of when best to enter the market. The parameters change, the strategy have to change to adapt to it.

I’m beginning to wonder… if all these have less to do with how low KLCI will drop, and more to do with time factor. It just takes time to correct itself and recover. It certainly takes time for our political brouhaha to play out and make a mess out of itself.

So it’s back to more waiting as the economy and stock market searches for a direction. Maybe I should start looking into investing in the US.

In the mean time, the best bet now is to put your money in mutual funds ( <– S. Dali suggest using EPF to invest, a smart suggestion which I didn’t think off). Do a standing instruction with the bank to do monthly investments. Use this consistent investment to average out the crazy market movement (which has no direction <–this is worse than crazy). I know this is a blatant self-promotion… I’m a Public Mutual agent after all =P . But trust me, this is a rare opportunity… it’ll turn out to be gold in the future (well, unless Public Mutual gulung tikar).

PARANOIA!

*This will be No more sticky posted. This is serious sh!t. Spread the word around to those around you. You’d rather be safe than sorry.

3 unfortunate soulz haf bean tangkap under the draconian/wicked/evil/nasty/sinister/vicious/demonic lSA.

  1. Raja Pe+ra Kamarudin of Malaysia-T0day for saying something bad about Islam. (blogger)
  2. Ms Tan H00n Cheng, the Sin Chew reporter who reported Ah-MAD’s racist remark. (reporter) [released after 16 hours with the lame excuse of protecting her]
  3. Teresa K0k, DAP member of parliament for Seputeh. Donch knoe whai kena lokap pun. (opposition) [released, was framed by Khir Toyol for the the azan letter thingy]

UMN0 has gone nutz and crazee wei. For those who are katak di bawah tempurung… allowz me to clue you in a bit.
Ah-MAD is the seed of the whole brouhaha. Now UMN0 tangkap blogger, reporter and opposition. This is to make the rakyat and opposition angry… with the hope that they will stage a demonstration or some sh!t lah. Then UMN0 will use this as an excuse to declare state of emergency/darurat.

Be afraid. Be very very afraid!

IT’Z A TARRRP!!!1! Do nut rezponse!

UMN0 iz akting teh funneh. Stei come. Dis iz Pak Lah’z ultymet pwnage. Donch let hims ownz us.
The picture is to inject some light humour, but the issue at hand is still not funny.

Quoted from shadowfox ( bytemuncher.blogspot.com )

Plans are on the way by the government to incite riots. Remain calm and don’t overreact.I wouldn’t be surprised they have another final lethal attempt, should all their current efforts fail to provoke us.

I predict the Barisan/Umno government will unleash hordes of private armies to commit crimes, rape, destruction to provoke you further into reacting physically.

They will try to cause armed conflicts and civil strife if all else fails.

Stock up some food, stay home if possible, or go straight home after work.The next in line to be arrested will be Anwar Ibrahim. Stay cool, calm, and don’t play into their hands.

But do keep some weapons in the house just in case they unleash hordes of rempits to ransack/attack you in the house.

This would be their last ditch effort, to actually maul you physically if all other provocation fails. They just want you to react.

It’s like, they beat you to a pulp and when you retaliate then they accuse you of assault and arrest you to justify their next course of action.

Don’t react physically unless you really have to.

Quoted from hsudarren.wordpress.com:

I would like to call upon all Malaysians to do these:

  1. Remain calm
  2. Do not do anything rash
  3. Do not take to the street
  4. Do not be instigated by people to demonstrate
  5. Just voice it out in your blog, your comments to the blogs, and inform your friends and relatives about the situation
  6. Call your ADUNs or MPs and voice out your objection about these arrests and urge your representatives to voice out
  7. Members of political parties, sms your leaders to pressure them to voice out

We shall object to these draconian acts by using civility and do not fall into the traps of giving the big brother a chance to declare emergency rule……

P.S. iamyuanwu’s prediction on the KLCI: it will lose at least 7 pints of bl00d (there’s only 8 pints of bl00d in a human). And with the chaos, Ringgit gonna plunge to RM4.00/USD by year end ( stocktube.blogspot.com )?

Of Ahmad, Chinese and immigrants

I’m going to quote a very cliche poem that’s been quoted a gazillion times in times like this. There are numerous versions out there, here’s one… which I took the liberty in editing certain terms to suit our local situation better. =)

When the Nazis BN/UMN0 came for the communists opposition,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist in opposition.

When they locked up the social democrats activists,
I remained silent;
I was not an social democrat activist.

When they came for the trade unionists non-Malays,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist non-Malay.

When they came for the Jews dan-lain-lains,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew dan-lain-lains.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

— supposedly by Martin Niemöller, but re-phrased by iamyuanwu =P —

Where in the world are all the moderate Malays and all the sane minded Malays when their opinions and voices are needed the most?

Apparently, they have left Malaysia too! People like Karim Raslan, Farish Noor, Dr Bakri Musa, and Azly Rahman, etc are all based else where. I mean they drop by Malaysia once in a while, but then…

I remember reading a book (The Chinese Dilemma) mentioned about “a top gahmen leader” (if memory serves me well, it was Tun AbduI Razak. Can you freaking believe it?!) when asked about the brain drain issue of Chinese Malaysians. Here’s what he said…

“Good riddance to bad rubbish.”

Now, even sensible Malays are gone. Liddat, Malaysia can die liao lah.

And, oh… before I end……

It’s a TARP!!!1!
Diz Ah-MAD dewd iz akting de funneh…. him wantz to insait teh rasherrl tenshun, stloke Malay fearz and creatz teh May13 again. zOMG!!1! Hoo knowz, maiby iz Pak Lah’z ultymet pwnage.

A nutty old horse’s inane rumblings

Holy motherload of crap heavens!

WTF?! Look at this ridiculous sh!t spewing from the old horse’s month — ‘Lou Ma’ (in Cantonese, you know who I’m referring to =)

http://test.chedet.com/che_det/2008/09/snippets-6.html

This is bad and this is also seditious. What in the heck is in that senile old man’s kepala otak? What he said is totally irresponsible! So old already, minum so much kopi already, still wants to ka-ka-cau-cau. Pfffft!

Seriously, Chinese Malaysians have no problems our Malay brethren. Our problem is with the corrupted BN/UMN0 gahmen. Like I said before, corruption, extortion & injustice doesn’t discriminate which pocket it takes its money from, or which life it destroys.
Whether a brown man’s pockets, yellow man’s pocket pockets, a dark man’s pockets, a Banana’s pocket, a Coconut’s* pocket (*coconut = Indian version of Banana, brown on the outside, white inside), a dan-lain-lain’s pockets… semua kena. As long as there are coins in it, their greedy little fingers will squirm its way in to grab it.

What’s ‘farnie’ is that the idiots there actually agrees with Lou Ma about Malays losing powers and what not. LMAO!

Eh brader… s’ka-ang ni makan pun tak cukup, k’orang masih ada mood nak Ketuanan-Melayu sini, keris-bathe-in-Chinese-blood sana, ke? Baik kita berkerjasamalah dan halau pontianak yang dah lama hisap darah rakyat sampai kering kontang. Today, it’s no longer Malay Dilemma — it’s MALAYSIAN DILEMMA. BN/UMN0 doesn’t want to see us united, and the stupid people above ikut secara buta. (Entah nasi apa dia orang makan? Aku suruh mak aku jangan beli.)

So, as a Malay… you betui-betui takut Malayu akan hilang dari dunia. So what to do?

Work harder lah, push for a fairer gahmen/system in Malaysia so that your rights will be taken care of. Look, you’re the biggest number in Malaysia. That makes you the Big Brother. And each of the other siblings have different abilities and different views on issues. Instead of taking care of your younger siblings and talk things out with us, you bully us kau-kau. WTF is this?!

In the mean time, our neighbours laugh at us that there’s no love amongst brothers in a family. Are we seriously stupid or what?! And they take full advantage of this situation. Oh yes, they do.

To fierceness ( +Malaysia) and beyond,

New look: porn on the header image

Now this is a WordPress theme I’ve always wanted. It’s called Redoable Lite by Dean Robinson. No fixed width — which means if you have a wider screen, you won’t need to scroll that much to read the whole article; dark background — easy on the eye, I only wish it is black with light grey words; custom header image — can put all sorts of porn, sexy images there; normal size texts — the last theme had text size so small I had to squint to read my own blog.

Pron after the jump…
