Watched “Hotel Rwanda,” an inspiring (or rather disturbing) movie about the Rwanda Genocide in 1994. It makes me wonder… what it took for a person to take the other life; what could trigger a massacre; what can you do to prevent something bad even if you saw it coming…

It reminded me that despite lots of unfairness and stupid stuff in Malaysia… we are still a lucky bunch of people to be born on this land. It’s a pretty rare occasion that I felt really good to be in Malaysia, or to be a Malaysian… lots of the other time I was rather pessimist about our future, couldn’t help it.

Btw, I watched the movie in a hospital… any other weirder places to watch a movie?

Why isn’t Malaysia enforcing safety belt wearing at back seats?

I lost a friend who died in a car accident a couple of years ago. He was thrown out of the car while seating at the back seat. The driver and passenger at the front only suffered minor injuries, thanks to the safety belt. Safety belt does save life.

This law of wearing safety belt at rare seats is pretty common overseas. If I remember correctly Singapore, Australia and UK has enforced the law. Last time when I travelled to Europe, some countries even enforced wearing seat belts on buses.

Malaysia have a high traffic accident (and fatality rate), some of the fatality could have been prevented with some extra precautions and better laws (and enforcement).

Enforcing safety belt wearing at back seats might be one of the helpful ideas.

Like the flower, not because of its beauty, nor colour, nor fragrance… like it, simply because of its name… Forget-Me-Not.

Forget me not

Chinese New Year has finally ended, and the biggest gain of CNY 2007 (and probably the only gain) is…


Dong Dong Dong Chiang… time to cut my waist line, I can’t even see my feet while standing straight these days.
