Why BERSIH?

We all keep talking about BERSIH, but who really knows what are we really fighting about? What do you know about electoral reforms? If some journalists/news reporters ask you what kind of electoral reforms would you like to see, would you be able to answer?

If you don't, please do yourself a service, and read this up.

Thanks Pete, for hitting straight to the point, as always =)

Epic Marybone Time


My cooking skills were acquired when I was in Liverpool. Back then, we were staying in a student accommodation called the Marybone. Five of us shared a same flat unit, and most of us had zero cooking skills.

We were adventurous and creative though. And we used those qualities to make sure we feed ourselves with proper food. It was an arduous journey.


In the beginning, we were rubbish. We either cooked up a mess,


or restrict ourselves to simple food.


As time goes by, we improve, by leaps and bounds. By the end of the semester, cooking up things was second nature to us, like walking,sleeping, or eating.

That was the good ol' days.

Fast forward to present time. We decided to have a cooking gathering to reminisce the great time we had in Liverpool. Venue was at a certain condominium unit in Penang.

We overestimated ourselves. Most of us have stopped cooking since coming back to Malaysia, that means 4 years ago. As a result, the cooking skills are long gone. We made quite a terrible mess, to the agony of the house owners, and dinner came out 3 hours late, and it took a Herculean effort to clean up the kitchen after that.

We were glad that our cooking skills remain intact. It was easy and fun cooking up various dishes, and we had a great time enjoying our food.


Hopefully there will be more of such cooking escapades to be planned in the future...

己所不欲,

勿施于人.

这个道理, 从小到大听过无数次. 不过往往看到人们的实际行动都和这句名句背道而驰的. 最好的例子是过年时的老妈子.

每次有亲戚朋友来拜年时拿东西来, 妈妈都会抱怨说: "又是这些甜甜的饼干, chocolate, 汽水, 酱多怎样吃?"... 转过头, 轮到我们去拜年时, 她又会把这些让她抱怨的食品带去给我们要拜访的人. 我每次都在想, 是不是每家人都不太喜欢这些吃肥人的东西, 还是只有我妈妈是例外的? 还有, 是不是其实每家人跟我们一样不想看到太多这些零食, 所以就好像老妈子对待我们拜访的人一样对待我们, 把他们不要的零食带给我们?

你们有没有和我一样的感想?
