"Eat your spinach Boy!!"

Happy Birthday To Me (My yearly mandatory blurb about getting old)

Yup that's right boy and girls, it my birthday again. This time I turn 33. Oh God I'm old. Just looking at myself in the mirror, I can instantly see the multitude of white strands that is my hair. Last year, I would be hard pressed to find one let alone a whole bunch of them. Every morning I thank Allah that I'm still aloud to breathe.

Overall I think I have more to be thankful this year than I did last year. Career wise, things are moving along and on the home front, we are looking forward to the birth of Number 2. Hopefully if all goes well, in the first week of September. I guess as you get older, you start appreciating the things you have more and more. Ultimately, you start living in the moment as oppose to when you were younger, always kept wanting more and never happy with what you had.

My son is now 5, and everyday I cherish my moments with him. Everyday, he surprises me with something new. I am truly proud of him. Earlier this year I bought him a PSP for his birthda…

Fuel Price Increase, Nothing but lies!

With the recent increase in Fuel Prices in Malaysia, there has been much unrest. The Malaysian people are struggling to come to grips with the reality of the reduction in subsidies that have, for a long time, kept our fuel one of the cheapest in this region. Malaysian local newspaper The Star recently made a comparison of fuel prices between Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. It drove me up the wall with their ignorance. Such hypocritical bull crap.

The Star wrote that in Thailand, petrol cost RM3.90/liter and we here in Malaysia still are better off. What cock! Does The Star realize that in Thailand new cars are cheaper than Malaysia by RM10,000? And that the Thais only pay ONE life-time fee for their driving license? That means NO renewal fees. There is also NO Road Taxes in Thailand. And did you know that you can drive all the way from Hadtyai to Bangkok on a six lane highway without paying any Tolls? Well you can. Not so, for Malaysia unfortunately. The Star obviously cannot print…
