I Declare Today a Public Holiday!

It’s my 37th birthday. So what? The more birthdays pass, the more I think “What have I contributed to the world? What have I done to make it better? Has my existence helped others at all?” If the mortality age for men in Malaysia is between 72-74, then I’m actually middle-aged now. (Hmm, let’s see.…

Happy Malaysia Day!

Just a short post to wish all our readers a very happy MALAYSIA DAY! Lets take this opportunity to lepak together and have teh tarik at your nearest mamak place. Lets respect each other’s differences and accept differing opinions, because lets face it… WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, BUT WE ALL LOVE MALAYSIA! Or you can…

Finally Manchester United Wins!

I’ve been a cranky MU fan every since the new league started. Two draws and one loss to traditionally weaker teams was simply unacceptable to someone who have been following MU for like forever. Was seriously hoping that Louis Van Gaal can improve the team almost immediately, after a disastrous 2013 season. (Man Utd at…

Malaysia Public Holiday 2015

It’s that time of the year when Belacan Girl and I will have ‘creative discussions’ (read: annoying arguments) on when/where to take our next vacation. She normally likes to plan wayyyy ahead, while I’m the type who likes to decide at the very last minute. (Any others like us out there?) I had read somewhere that next…

Robin Williams : Rest in Peace

I guess most of the world was shocked by the tragic death of Robin Williams. I know I was. I remembered having a conversation with Belacan Girl when they cancelled William’s last show, The Crazy Ones, after just one season. I told Belacan Girl that he’s going to take the cancellation quite hard, because he…

After a long hiatus of good aidilfitri television commercials, I think this year we’ve gotten a few good ones. Below are some of our favourites this year (in no particular order): Petronas Raya 2014 :…

New Public Holiday

Being a multi-racial country, we are definitely blessed with so many public holidays.  I believe we are one of the countries in the world with most public holiday. Recently during one of my get-togethers, a friend highlighted that 15th July will be declared as Federal Territories public holiday. Unable to relate any festivity or event…

Salam Ramadhan!

To all our readers, we would like to wish everyone a very spiritual and productive Ramadhan. Let us take this opportunity to remember those who are less fortunate, be it Muslims or non-Muslims. There are many who don’t have enough to eat, or roofs over their heads, or living in oppression, or fighting for their survival. Let…

Poem for Belacan Girl

It’s that time of the year. When we make sweet diabetic wishes. Profess our love to one another. And later go out for something delicious Every year gets better and better. We crashed and we burned, but we got up. We were beaten silly, but we fought back. One year closer, One year better. Can’t…

Joyeux 10ème anniversaire

It seems it was only yesterday that I feel anxiously nervous waiting for my groom to arrive. 10 years have passed ever since and it has been the best 10 years of my life (so far!) (CheeseBoy on our wedding day!) Marriage is definitely not a typical fairy tale where you live happily ever after…
