Desert or Dessert

My sister was in Dubai a few weeks ago and she showed me a number of photos she took during her trip there..... As seen in many documentaries i have watched on Dubai and its expanding development... its just amazing to see Dubai's over the top ambition of reality.... stretching the engineers to their limits to achieve remarkable results... im sure we all have seen the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel right?...

well...,... meet its taller in-land cousin the Burj Dubai... which once completed will be the world tallest building... and when they set about building it ...they weren't kidding about it being tall......


My sister and her colleagues took a tour up the the Barj... all the way up there... since it is still under construction the lift is on the perimeter of the building and its an open lift.... with just a perforated metal cladding around it..... ,,,,,,, ...im guessing that they all dont surfer from the fear of heights ........

I'll leave you with a silhouette sunset of the ever changing skyline of the dubai ......



......... nice pictures CJ, very nice.... u are my sister afterall :P

Just because.....

Well… im sure everywhere you go everyone talking about the new dawn in Malaysian politics ….a 50/50 control between BN and Opposition parties….. Call me a sceptic … but I really need to see it to believe it…. So lets see how things go yeah…..

I have no idea why BN is shocked of the lose of full or majority control and its even worst when all BN can say is how bad its going to be and that the Opposition shld be careful with their new found power…. And many Ministers,… I mean former ministers keep trying to scare us with impending doom as the opposition now have a hand in administrating the country….

I sincerely hope that the opposition will prove otherwise… So for the next 4 years they have got to prove to all of us if not…. BN will just have another landslide win come the next elections…….. hope is all I have for a better Malaysia… where all that talk is not just a fa├žade ……..because for some reason these past few days I have been thinking what if… we, the minority race are still denied unanimity and must still give way to the majority…

The best not given a chance just because ……….…..
The minority still marginalized just because………...

So im going to wait….. wait and see ….to see what the new ‘gorvment’ has to offer us ‘Malaysians’… as a whole and not just as Malays, Chinese, Indians dan lain lain (and Others)

Help carry what???

Imagine what my friends would have first thought when i asked their help to carry my vw engine out of the boot of my Proton Satria..... their first reaction was ... "your what...??!!!"... then the next question was ... "how the hell did you get it in there in the first place?"... and my answer was.... an Indian, an Indonesian and a Bangladeshi (the indian being me ofcos) carried it into the boot of my car.....



Yup... we managed to get my vw beetle engine into the boot of the satria... ofcos with the back seats folded down and you can fit alot of things in there.... but please be warned that overloading your car is dangerous... because your car will handle differently while driving it... not to mention ruining your back absorbers... shorthening its lifespan or even breaking it!! so please ... dont try this yeah...

So... next problem is getting it out of the car...... but with the help of Dono, Alex, Sheev and Gab, ... it was a breeze... sort off... carrying it straight was easy ..... but the witdh of the store room door was too small .... and so we had to turn the engine on its side so that the exhaust pointed up... slowly but surely... we got it into the store room and so as to not damage the floor... we placed it on a stand i made out of 2 x 4 lumber...

Thanks guys, ... i really appreaciate it....

Creatures from THE MIST...... Im a jumppin' out'er here...




What the hell is eating my curry leaf this time..!!!!!!!!!!!!????????? What ever it was its now dead... after a healthy dose of bug spray......... really weird creatures which could just have been conjured up by Steven King for his latest movie adaptation of his horror thriller novel ...The Mist......


Started off interesting enough but for some reason the first creature FX looked so cheap... compared to the the rest of the movie..... Well im not going to waste anymore of your time like how this movie did... cos boy was it a waste of 2 hours of my life...... 3/10 .... reminded me of another stupid steven king movie...
DreamCatcher......

Talking about Mist.... whats with this weather lah... its hazy.... but it rains almost everyday.... chily at times ...hot like hell other times....... Wish i cld "jump" to Siberia or something....


Yeah.... how cool would that be.... just me and my camera... jumping around the world..... taking sunsets of the same day in every major city in the world........ cooooool!..... too bad the movie was crap.... Hayden what's his face was showing me just why i hated him in Star Wars.... (Oh God... not a another flashback.... no...no... NOOOO!!! it never happened... no.... oh please no...... Star Wars 1, 2 and 3... never happened.... no it never happened!!!!!!!!) and what the hell was Samuel L Jackson doing there.... repeating some lame one liner over and over "Only GOD should have this power" or some thing similar............ 3/10 and it cant jump any higher.....

We found out that the soft spoken Colin is such a hustler at Taboo.....

We played in the porch ... and im sure the neighbours werent too impressed.... co we were noise as ... a bunch of people playing taboo.......
