While on the road, especially at the end of the day, I’d appreciate the deejays not playing songs that could lull me to sleep. I’m aware that even rock ballads can be hazardous to a tired driver, and broadway is a definite no for a ‘rock kapak’ guy like me. You can say that I’m allergic to broadway musicals and classical music (except ‘Hungarian Rhapsody’ by Queen - hehehe) which are favourites of my wife. The only consolation is I get to make fun of her choice while she makes me listen to them (‘to broaden my mind’ was her excuse) and so our pleasant arguments prevents me from dozing off while on the wheels.
But if I were to choose my songs while on the road, I would pick up-beat dance tempos. Not the repetitious disco remix, etc, but well, the interesting tunes. They are not of Adele‘s standard – they are of their own. So let’s not argue about quality, just what sounds good during a particular time and environment.
The above picture was taken from Daily Mail. The look in Ryan Giggs’ face says it all. It won’t be the same without Fergie. After all, most Manchester United players only know Sir Alex as their manager. The Red Devils haven’t change their manager since Bryan Robson was the captain of England. It’s been 27 years, 1,500 games in charge and 13 English titles to show. At one point, we thought that Sir Alex Ferguson will never leave Manchester United. He looks healthy, determined as ever and he has managed to build a new generation of championship-winning team at Old Trafford. Then, came the moment the fans dreaded the most. After guiding the club to a record 20th English league title, the Gaffer decided the time is right for him to go. Well, we should have anticipated that. Sir Alex has always wanted to bow out in style. He did just that and there’s nothing more appropriate for the fans to do expect applaud and thank him for those wonderful years. Continue reading →
I received a call last nite from an ultra Melayu friend who lambasted me for running CH Hwe’s opinion. He said he was going to boycott my Blog. I also received almost 100 comments and still receiving. Here is my quick reply to CH Hwe.
First of all no one likes corruption. There is no doubt about that. And I think there is one simple solution which I hope CH Hwe and his friends can help in making come true. It will not cost you a single sen. It is guaranteed to wipe out huge swathes of corruption in our country. Plus it will save you tons of money. It will lower the cost of living, make things cheaper and thereby lower inflation. Yes Mr CH Hwe this is the magic bullet to solve corruption in this country. And you can play a large part in it. Do read on.
Secondly at this juncture the Chinese people must be very careful what exactly do they want from the system that we have in this country. This system is a Malay-Muslim dominated system. The demographics show that as a percentage of the entire population the Chinese population is shrinking – to just over 25% of the population now and it will go lower to 20% and perhaps 15% all within the next 15 years. The Indian population is now at 8% and also shrinking as a percentage. Continue reading →
