Fish Head Noodle @ Stutong

Lunch today, I decided to try out the new Fish Head Noodle besides 456 kopitiam at Stutong near 1TJ there.

The place is clean and neat. But then the price of the food is not cheap. The one we ordered are fish slice with noodles. Ah Phui's is clear soup, while mine is evaporated milk soup. :)

Slurp slurp. It's yummy.. I never regretted it. Just that the price of this set of meal is RM8.50 each. A bit pricey in my opinion. Well, it's once in a while treat, so, ok lah.. hehe...

How Lee Kuan Yew sees Malaysia in 20 years' time

How Lee Kuan Yew sees Malaysia in 20 years' time

The Bumiputra affirmative action policy has destroyed one generation of Malays....they dont know how to be competitive. The sad thing is that they dont realized that the longer they keep at it, in the ultimate long run....they are "killing" themselves. The day of reckoning will come and history will be re-written on how Malaysian fore-fathers failed the nation. The intent may be good, but the execution and policy has been a disaster.

How Lee Kuan Yew sees Malaysia in 20 years' time

I share LKY's view and I know this is what UMNO wants! (remember the keris waving?!) Then they can have everything and no need to share - and then they can fight among themselves!

The clear and present danger

If the Doomsday prediction never comes true, New Zealand will remain as picturesque after a hundred years, with cows and goats roaming all over the country sparsely populated by humans.

A hundred years later, Singapore 's foundation will remain rock solid. The tiny city-state will continue to lure new immigrants, and many new-generation Singaporeans will see their lineages traced back to those of migrants.

How about Malaysia a hundred years from now?

Lee Kuan Yew did not seem to see things that far. He only set his sight 20 years later.

He said all constituencies in Malaysia would be dominated by the Malays in 20 years' time, and the leadership in this country would value the Chinese population less and less.

The Chinese population would continue to slide, he added, not because of the pathetically low fertility rates among the Chinese in this country, but because those who could afford would have sent their children overseas, who would decide not to come back.

"And those migrating to Malaysia will be from Islamic states, making the country's Islamisation inclination more and more pronounced."

Statistics don't lie, and the current political and social ecosystems are not here without a reason.

MM Lee's predictions are by no means novel. But his well-thought remarks have touched the hearts of many a Malaysian.

If this is what the country should look like 20 years from now, we can imagine Chinese Malaysians to be like apes in a forest sanctuary a hundred years down the road, where we need to sharpen our eyesight to carefully scan through the entire swathe of forest before we can catch a glimpse of one or two of them.

That comparison is, most certainly, exaggerated, but I really hope we will not be reduced to a rare species by then.

The ratio of Chinese population in this country has been on steady decline over the decades; so has their political status here. Very soon, they will be completely engulfed by the powerful waves of aggressive Islamisation.

This is the pessimistic side of the outlook of their destiny.

But Chinese Malaysians cannot afford to go on this way, and wait helplessly for such a destiny to befall them.

They have to take the initiative to accentuate their own strengths and be in firm control of their own fates before they can divert such a predestination.

The next ten years will be key to the future destiny of Chinese Malaysians. If the country's policies get more and more ethnically-oriented and religiously inclined, the future of Chinese community is well within our imagination, and Chinese Malaysians will exit the country in droves.

On the other hand, if community-centric ideologies get diluted, conflicts between mainstream and minority races get thinned down, the common Malaysian identity gets consolidated, and the spirit of secularity stays very much relevant, then Chinese Malaysians will have a much more promising future here.
So will Malaysia .

Whatever happens to this country or our society, the most important element for new-generation Chinese to secure a place in this land, will be their very own competitiveness.

In this age of globalization, when national boundaries are increasingly obscured, people will find a greener pasture beyond our shores if our internal conditions remain this bleak.

We cannot afford to talk about what will happen to us a hundred years from now. We need to buck up and fight for our near-term opportunities.

Meaningless and unnecessary squabbles, like the one currently taking place within MCA, will only serve to bog down the pace of the Chinese community further, blurring their vision of the clear and present danger.

What the Chinese community urgently needs right now is high-caliber and farsighted leadership, not one engrossed with endless infighting.

Sushi King @ Spring

Super Kiasu, after dinner, went to the Spring again with my brother to try the Sushi King RM2 Bonanza.

But looks at the queue, it's so long. I q for 45 min. =(

Ok, check the time when it's our turn. The clock showed 8.25pm.

Then as usual hand-picked all the expensive sushi. But looks at that orange sushi, at first I thought it's salmon, but turn out it's not! Feel cheated!!

Near the end of the 45 min (The usual 1 hour time frame you are allowed inside sushi king during bonanza was cut short to 45 min only), the real salmon sushi is finally out. Can see the difference from the photo? Real salmon has more "fine lines". Lol...

The total that all of us ate. I think averagely i ate 3-4 plates only.

Checked the time again after sushi, it's 9.10pm. Within the time frame of 45 min.

In the end the total bill came out to be RM62.65 for 5 persons. Not too bad considering that I manage to eat unagi, baby octopus and salmon. Hehe..

    Time for Change

    Dear Friends and Readers of this blog,

    Sarawak will be having it's election this Saturday, 16-April. This is the time when we, as the rakyat, decide our own fate. Sometimes we complained, our life sucks, our work sucks, our pay sucks, our infrastructure sucks etc. Why is it that we complained so much?

    That is because our life is hard! We complain our life sucks, because our pay sucks. Is it really that our pay/salary sucks, or is it the inflation and over-the-roof pricing sucks? Ask yourself, at western country, a person with 3k monthly salary can live without any stress, but here, what can we do with 3k per month? We bought our car at the price of RM50k (Myvi only) but at western country, you can bought a very good + branded car at merely 30k. The housing here priced at RM300k (Terrace only) but oversea a very good house costs merely 100k.

    Why is all this happening in our country? Because of corruption. A house can be build at the price of 100k, but sold at 300k, because the rest of the money you need to "supply" to certain "party" in order to get the house on the market.

    One of the world richest man is actually receding here in Sarawak. His property, I cannot even count the number of zeros available. One will guess that a man with such wealth will at least 'donate' some for charity for the benefit of those less fortunate, but NO. This person's greed knows no boundary.

    Thus, everyone, remember this 16-April, vote wisely. Every single vote counts. Do you want to change your life for the worst, or better?

    Program Penempatan Pekerjaan 2011 @ Hills

    Last Saturday, we went to the Hills Shopping mall and saw there's an exhibition around. At first our intention is to see the dog show, but it turned out that the dog show is on the next day, which is Sunday, instead of Saturday.

    During the time we arrived, I think they just finish officiating the exhibiting by some Datuk. A lot of ppl with uniform was walking around and escorting some important looking persons, which in my opinion, has minimal interest in all this.

    Guess the election is this coming Saturday, all those ministers are working hard, finally. People of Sarawak, choose wisely when you vote. Every vote counts, thus, cast your vote wisely.

    EHS week

    Our company just had our EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) week on the last week of March. The organization organized a small quiz for all the employees of the company.

    I took the quiz and submitted another on Ah Phui's behalf. The result was out last week, guess what?! I won a RM20 kfc/pizza voucher. Lol...

    Total RM40. Yay!!

    But one of my colleague did comment that they should had given out other vouchers instead of KFC/Pizza and this fast food is not beneficial to our health.

    Germany Trip

    One of the goals in my life is to listen to an orchestra live in some European country. And my dream came true when I went to Germany for a business trip during September 2010.

    When I knew I had the chance to go euro, I started planning out the things I wanted to do. I listed down 4 stuffs I would like to do, which are

    1. Visit the wineries and breweries tour, and go wine tasting
    2. Listen to a live orchestra
    3. Experience Oktoberfest (Munich & Dresden)
    4. Visit museums and park (Please just search under label Germany)

    Basically I strike out #2,3 and 4. For #1, I think it's only half of it, although I did manage to try different beers and wine, but I didn't mange to visit any wineries/breweries. Well, basically that sums up my Germany trip. ;)

    * My gosh, this draft has been sitting inside my blog for ages....

    Free Tupperware

    Thursday noon time, I decided to go KFC has my lunch instead. Since someone is buying my meal, I think hey, since that morning was so hectic, why not have a nice lunch to set the mood back to good.

    Unknown to us, while we are having lunch, a bunch of young looking kids, wearing a 1 Malaysia T-shirt, came in and started giving out 'red packet' to us.

    The red packet
    . I heard about this free giveaway from a colleague already but I never really experience it. Finally I had my own red packet.

    The red packet actually contained 1 A3 poster of our current PM (for the coming Sarawak Election) and 1 beautiful Tupperware. The only thing attracts me is the tupperware to be frank.
    Nay, the Tupperware. If you really don't like the 1M logo, you can peel it off. It's just a sticker sticking on the bottle.
