When it rains in Jakarta

For me Jakarta has always been a destination of choice but yesterday, I was greeted with what only can be described as liquid hell. It was as if the skys opened up a wept tears of anger. This populous nation was clearly overwhelmed with the immense sudden quantity of rain that drenched the city. What should have been a relatively short drive from the airport to the city center became a torturous 5 hour ordeal.


Personally, I believe that the floods are as a result of too much shit in the sewer system. With over 100 million people, all shitting at once, where does it all go? Surely it has all clogged up the storm drains and pipes. Never mind that Jakarta city sits below sea-level, it has to be the shit that is causing these highway shit-rivers.

Just goes to show, that shit is eternal.

What a loser Siti Nurhaliza is

Now this post may have little relevance to some of my readers outside of Malaysia. I feel I should say something about this whole Siti - Datuk 'K' wedding issue. It has caused such a stir with the Malaysian public. People are so damn upset. For the past week, my friends have requested me to say something about Siti. So here goes.

A bit of background first. Siti Nurhaliza has been undoubtedly the queen of music in Malaysia for past 2 decades. The true Malaysian Idol. Anyway, for years Siti has embodied the essence of Malaysian beauty. She has been regarded as the perfect Malaysian woman. Sweet, pretty, soft spoken, well-mannered, religious, talented, business savvy and a virgin. Bringing Siti home will make any mother jump up with glee. Siti has had a zillion hit records. She has won all the awards there is. She is a millionaire in her own right. Bottom line is she can have anyone she wants.

Which brings me to the issue at hand. The truth was revealed on 17th July 2006 that Siti…

Midget Porn

SERIOUSLY. What the hell is up with people who like Midget Porn? I honestly feel that if you are not a Midget or Little People (the PC Term), then you have absolutely no right to 'get-off' of it. What kind of sick bastard likes to see genetically deformed people having sex? What's wrong with normal porn? People who watch Midget Porn ultimately laugh at it because it is, quite simply, not normal and therefore funny. If anything it is demeaning to little people. Just look at Midgets in the circus and in Professional Wrestling. They are there merely as objects of comedy and nothing more. But then again, is it the Midgets themselves that feel they need to objectify themselves in this manner? Do they feel they need to fulfill these stereotypes that society has dictated? Is Midget Porn one of these outlets? Don't get me wrong, Little People have every right to procreate. Hell, most of them do end up having 'normal' off spring. And so on and so forth. But enough of t…

I ate pork. Damn the Philippines!

On my recent trip to the Philippines, I had my first taste of pork. How fucking awesome. Yey!
What started out as a simple breakfast, quickly turned into a nightmare. As a Muslim, one of the fundamental no-no's is eating pork or any of the variants there of. This means bacon, sausages, ham, pig and whatever other names there are of this 'other white meat'.

Anyway, as you would imagine, breakfast is an experience laid en with land mines of the pork variety, and so my options were quite limited. Even ordering a simple omelet meant that I would risk some Jamie Oliver wannabe chef would still mix in some ham and capsicum in there. So I order a plain sunny-side up egg with some toast. Ok, so at his point what could go wrong? On the table there was a neat little basket of condiments like, salt, pepper, chili sauce, Tabasco sauce, Maggi seasoning, soy sauce, Ketchup AND finally, MANG TOMAS ALL AROUND SARSA.

All-Around Sarsa? Fuyoh! That sounds too exotic to pass up, I had to give t…
