The sky is grumbling, and the clouds are threatening to release its contents upon earth, reducing us mere mortals to a big mess of traffic jam soon. The sun is still shining angrily upon the vast buildings of concrete around me, but soon it will be no more. The time is 4:26 pm. The view […]

Can’t believe that this is happening at this time of the century! Sexual discrimination against the darker (opposite of fairer lar) sex. Don’t believe me? Today it was raining heavily. I was out shopping in Low Yat for a small retractable umbrella for easier storage in my bag. Nowadays I car pool with Mei Fen […]

4th June. Today, a very important piece of history happened in the world. But sadly the very people who was supposed to know this history, has been denied knowledge of it. I can’t read chinese, but I know one important year is missing. 1989 It’s a sad truth, the people do not know the truth, […]

I got a chance to see what a real bird’s nest looks and taste like. Of course, this is not a photographic opportunity to be missed! Especially since this handful of bird’s nest already cost us RM50!
