Action Speaks Louder Than Words

Honestly, I haven’t felt the election fever yet. Well, a bit maybe. icon biggrin Action Speaks Louder Than Words Since, the Parliament was dissolved early this week, many blogs have started posting on election thingy but this will be the first for me and I will try to make it as short as possible.

I’m pretty sure I know who I’m going to vote for this time but I am not going to tell you who you should vote. Make your own choice. Nobody is going to force you to vote against your will.

Bacaan Fatihah Terunggul by Ustaz Hj. Mohd Asraff Ayob Al-Hafiz

Being curious about the quality of my Fatihah recitation, and hearing from an Ustaz that some other ustaz took 1 month to perfect his ‘Fatihah’ recitation with the help of an expert in Mekah, I purchased this DVD: Pakej DVD Fatihah Terunggul..

This a news that captured my interest today (in addition to the dissolution of parliament) :

According to Samoa Air’s latest schedule, the airline charges up to WS$1.32 ($0.57) per kg for domestic flights and WS$2.40 ($1.03) per kg for its only international flight to American Samoa, around 250 miles (402 km). A 150 kg person flying one-way internationally would be charged $154.50.

It’s about the Samoa Air’s charging passengers by their weight rather than per seat.  Samoa ranked fourth in the world’s most prevalent countries for obesity with 59.6% of its population considered obese.

This is probably the Airlines way of encouraging the population to lose some weight.
