There's a hero if you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid of what you are
There's an answer if you reach into your soul
and the sorrow that you know will melt away

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive

So, when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and then you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

It's a long road when you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
You can find love
if you search within your self
and the emptiness you felt will disappear

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive

So, when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

Lord knows dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone tear them away
Hold on, there will be tomorrow
In time you'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive

when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

That a hero lies in you
that a hero lies

Mariah Carey's Hero - Music Box (1993)

I am posting this song and lyric for a brave girl who had endured a painful and major surgery to correct her abnormal spine. I cant remember the tongue rolling, jaw breaking name of this procedure. (Hey, I did try to say it out loud, okay, but couldnt get it right. So I give up! I really dont like medical terms). She's due to undergo a second similar operation in the next few days.

I cant imagine how it must be for a girl like her to go through this. Twice. In a short period of time. She's in her early teens. And I was told by the father, she's a fan of my blog.

I know she will face the next surgery with a strong rebellious spirit that young teens usually have.

I am praying for her speedy recovery.

ps: Come on now, do you honestly think I would dedicate the song to my x's?

I would expect intelligent comments from him. But alas, maybe our blue eyed boy got tongue tied, or maybe he was nervous and forgot all those academical words and phrases he used to write in his student days.

Maybe the reporters shoved their recorder a bit too close to his nose and that made him blurted out comments like a fool might say. (Hey, I don't know. I was not there).

Please la, if he thought, spurting out words like jungles and monkeys, made him sounds intelligent, I beg to differ. It would be more cool to say something like a simplistic being who eat and relief itself by way of passing nutrients through its single cell body, no brain amoeba wannabe. I can definitely accept comments like that.

But then again, I was not educated in a famous Uni. So I cannot comment on the quality of graduates it has produced. Or was it because he was orally challenged? Nope, I don't think so. I have listened to his speeches. Its good. I mean, seriously.

Come to think of it, of course it was good, since the audience was 99.99 % (the 0.01 % is yours truly la) behind him and clinged to his every spoken word with intermittent spirited shout of Hidup The One Who Cannot Be Named.

Bear in mind, this is the man, who, as the story goes, was the student who dared to ask a strong worded question to the Grand Old Man.

Well, I guess that was just an extreme promotion of this guy after all.

Being a graduate of a world famous Uni, if a reference to jungle's and monkey's is all the methapor he could come up with, then I feel our future is really, truly blurred.

Online Dating

This blog has been rated as PG. ( I did hope forPG-13).

Why? Because it contain words shit (2X) and ass (1x).

Looks like I have to include the shits and the asses more frequently in my postings. :)

PS.Thanks to Michael Song for posting this in his blog.


Sometimes we cannot avoid things that happened to us. We do not have any control over it.

For instance, when you are driving leisurely at your own pace, listening to the song that you didnt hear for a while, someone knock your car from behind.

Piss off? Yeah sure. Go on. Let it out. Scream until you hurt your throat. Do the mad dance around the car. I hear you man.

The thing is, its unavoidable.

But what will happen if you are a big shot VVIP who suddenly find yourself stranded at the airport because of flight delays? You call for the top man in the company to be remove from his position, right?

People got stranded all the time, all over the world. And what did they do? They did the mad dance, they screamed at the airline or the airport personnel. And the worst thing they did were to say "I WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE AGAIN" . But thats it, nothing more.

I suspect that if these people have the power in their hands to remove whoever the CEO of that airline is, they definately will go for thats person's head, blood and all. But of course, they dont have that. And they wont call a media conference and bitched about it. They are mere passengers after all.

Unlike the big shot VIP lah.

Azwan thought I am awesome, so he awarded me this Awesome Guy Blogger Award. Now, time for my speech..............

In your dreams! :)

Sorry, I am not a speech giving person, although sometimes I do wish I have the flair to talk in front of an audience.

Anyway, I have to choose 5 awesome dudes. In no particular order:-

1. HOBO DUDE - Memoir of Interant Hobo.

2. 13 MAY - Layan Kepala

3. WINGED ACROPHOBIC - Merrily Down The Stream

4. UNCLE SHA - Uncle Sha


The fifth spot remains as it is for now.

Quoting Azwan " You dont need to do this if you dont want to". But you dudes are awesome bloggers to me, regardless.

I am so done here.


Everybody loves to make money.

Yes, even the good ol' me. Of course you have by now notice all the ads I put up on this blog. My sole purpose? What else, money. Yeah, yeah I know, money is the root of all evil but who cares? I want to have more. In fact a whole lot more.

That said, I am signing up payperpost as another ploy to earn more. I am posting this to get paid. I am still trying to understand what I should do, so if you ad expert out there feels like you want to correct me, please do so. I am willing and learning.

So what is payperpost?

The only thing I know so far, is that you write a review of something, as offered by someone or some businesses who pre determine how much your review is worth, get it approved and you will get paid or something like that. (Hey I am new at this.)

Unlike other advertisers, its all up to me, myself and I. If I want to make more, I have to blog more. Money is always an encouraging factor to motivate me . And from what I know so far, Pay Per Post pays more too.

Of course, if this venture is succesful like I hope it would be, I will finally have the means to satisfy my lust for Krell Evolution.

If its not, well, I still can piss people off with my postings.

p/s: CG, does this answer your comment:)

Much have been said about bloggers these past few days. Thats why I posted comments and statements from various newspaper and media.

However, the only fair comment about bloggers was reported by Malaysiakini. The mainstream media as expected, tend to generalize and demonize bloggers in their reports.

Bloggers blog not because they just feel like kicking someone's ass. In fact they write about their opinion on whatever they could think of, things that happened to them and because they feel they need to say something outside the comfort and security of familiar surroundings. It doesnt matter if they write about frustrations and happiness, Manchester United or All Blacks, cats and roosters. The most important thing is they record it all and let the world knows about it.

It just so happen bloggers do write about politics as well. And what is wrong about that?

Politicians gives 'ceramah' all the time and tell their audiences about their party manifesto, bad mouthing the other side, do character assasination and God knows what. And that's all right?

The only thing different between bloggers and politician is, politician deny things he said if his statements came out wrong and blame it on the poor media for misquoting. Bloggers will have his writings cut and paste as prove in the comment columm if they said the wrong things. And I never heard a blogger blame their readers for misquoting.

The thing is if we cannot get a fair, just and balance comment from the mainstream media, where we would go to? Politicians? Yeah right.

I'll read the blogs.


Utusan Malaysia Online, 24 July 2007

Bagaimanapun, kata Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, setiap orang perlu menyedari bahawa negara ini mempunyai undang-undang yang perlu dipatuhi.

‘Tidak, tidak ada keputusan khas dibuat untuk ambil tindakan ke atas blogger, tetapi setiap orang perlu sedar bahawa negara ini mempunyai undang-undang,” katanya., 24 July 2007

However, Kadir, a blogger himself, felt that such an action would be unlikely. “I don’t think so (there will be a crackdown). It’s too early to say that,” he said when met at the sidelines of a forum on bloggers in Shah Alam today., 24 July 2007

Meanwhile, Prof Zaharom Nain of Universiti Sains Malaysia said there are attempts to control bloggers through lawsuits, citing Jeff Ooi and Ahirudin Attan, who are currently embroiled in a multi-million ringgit lawsuit for defaming the New Straits Times, as examples.

Bloggers are creating space for democracy to expand in Malaysia,” he said at the forum organised by the Centre for Media and Information Warfare Studies of Universiti Teknologi Mara., 23 July 2007

A Senator today called for a stern action against bloggers who he described as "arrogant and bold" when making disparaging remarks against leaders.

"The lack of specific act to supervise bloggers gave them the space to spread lies which touch the sensitivity to the community. It can become a threat to peace". Said Senator Dr. Mohd Puad Zarkashi when debating The Electronic Government Activities Bill 2007 in Dewan Negara.
, 24 July 2007

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad believes that there is an attempt by the government to curb voices of dissent on the Internet. “Yes there is an attempt. But you cannot stop people from using the Internet,” he told reporters after officiating the International Conference on Gold Dinar Economy at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur today.

Mahathir said in the past, his administration would have liked to ban Internet pornography but it was “impossible” because, among others, the content was based overseas.

“Same with bloggers. You can’t stop them,” he stressed.

This statement by DPM caused a fiery debate between Umno and MCA.

Me? I dont give a shit.

Sure I am a Muslim. But so are millions of Muslims worldwide who are not living in an Islamic State. Does that makes them lesser Muslims?

I understand the fact that such statements are formulated to gain political mileage with Malay voters, in view of the coming General Election. As usual la, to paint the heroic image of the ruling party as a Muslim causes champion.

However I was surprised by the ridiculous action by the Government after which, as reported in Malaysiakini, banned all mainstream media from publishing any issues relating to Malaysia being an Islamic State.

Quoating an article "The Islamic state may not interfere with the personal rights of non-Muslims, who have full freedom of conscience and belief and are at liberty to perform their religious rites and ceremonies in their own way. Not only may they propagate their religion, they are even entitled to criticize Islam within the limits laid down by law and decency."

And Malaysia an Islamic State?

Islamic State or not, doesn't effect my everyday life one bit. My paycheck stays the same, I still drive the same car, I work in the same place, etc.

Like I said, I dont give a shit.

Wan Zaleha Radzi, Zalina Azman, Normala Samsuddin are among those beauties who once brightened up TV3 news over the years. No doubt they made TV news a joy to watch.

Now, however there is this person whom I am big fan of. Hands waving while delivering reports with passion and professionalism, made me think that this is how news report should be delivered. Viewers are hook, absorbing those words in trance like state.

TV3 news is not the same if he's not in it.

Forget all the beauties, now there's only KARAM SINGH WALIA.

I had a heated discussion about religion, God and Malaysian politics late in the afternoon today.

No, that's not what I want to write about.

There were four of us, and this friend of mine have a habit of making his point by touching us on our hands. With his hands la!

At first I just dismissed it, thinking nothing about his overfriendly gestures. I shot a glanced to Adi, he couldn't stop his smirking. I look at my other friend, Jeffri and he keep on shifting on his seat. Uncomfortable.

An hour into the conversation, I couldnt stand it anymore and said to my overfriendly friend.

Akula:"Hey bro, do you mind? Keep your hands to yourself okay".
Overfriendly friend: "Ummm, sorry dude, it's a habit. I didnt realize I did that".
Adi: "Fine, just dont do it again."

1 and half hour later.

Jeffri: "Bro, you are still touching us man. Apa ni?"
Overfriendly friend: "I am so sorry".

I winked at Jeffri and Adi. And from that point, all three of us 'accidentally' started touching him back whenever we want to express our points.We touched him on his hands and put our hands on his knees. Our overfriendly friend was getting restless, and restless every minute, but I noticed that he actually stopped touching us.

Finally, he gave up, pushed his chair back, and walk off saying : "You guys really sucks". I shot back "Its your fault for bringing the gay thing out, bro".

He didnt turn back, but I was pretty sure he heard our hysterical laughter ringing in his ears.

All 100 kg and 171 cm of him.

Kudos to Tengku Abdullah for resigning all his posts in FAM. Same goes to KJ. Thats how you take responsibilities.

For all other officials in FAM, wtf are you waiting for?

I went back to Sungai Petani last weekend and decided to drive to Kuala Perlis for the seafood.

Although there is a new highway from Bukit Kayu Hitam to Kuala Perlis, I took the old road via Alor Setar, Kuala Sanglang and Simpang Empat.

Nothing much had changed all these years while I was abroad. The scenery pretty much looked the same as I remembered it. Paddy fields, the irrigation ditch looks familiar.

Entering Perlis I did notice however there are quite a few houses painted in pink like the above picture. I cant remember any house in pink along this road eleven years ago. Its either that, or my memory is failing me.

I was not impressed at all when I reached Kuala Perlis. The tired jetty look uninviting and out of shape. New buildings and stalls were built but not maintained. Right in front of it, an abandoned building remains standing. And beside the access road lies a rubbish dumping area.

Oh well, its the Malaysian style again at work here. The government spent million of RM's promoting tourism abroad, but neglected the basic facilities back home. When are they ever going to learn? 50 years of Independence and still we cannot take care of our own backyard.

At least, the seafood is still good though.


And Malaysia lost, yet again to Uzbekistan 5-0. Norizan Bakar, the coach finally conceded that we don't have the quality to compete in the Asian Cup Final.

Duh! You think?

What else is new anyway with our National Football team. FAM despite spending millions of RM's still couldn't put together a decent team. I repeat, a decent team.

I don't expect miracles, but the way they lost the opening match to China really shows our National team sucks big time. No fighting spirit at all. Show some pridelah.

FAM officials from top to bottom should do the honourable thing and resign en masse. But then, I doubt they would do that. As always, unlike in other countries, where officials and ministers will accept the responsibility and resign from their posts, the Malaysian way is to say, "if I resign it shows that I am not responsible to this mess, so I would stay on".

The thing is, they have been there for so long, which is as long as I can remember. It is a fact that FAM is responsible in destroying our once great football team.

The new Nike sponsored jersey while nice to look at doesn't help one bit. Or could it be our boys played like they did simply because they don't want those jersey's to be dirty? Hey, its a Nike after all, isn't it?

Watching our football team played, I am sure Sapok Biki hung his head in shame.

Like the rest of us.

Remember when I told you about the motivational course I attended last weekend?

It was in Swiss Garden Resort and Spa Hotel.

I was on my way out the restaurant after choosing my food at the buffet table, thinking how I would enjoy eating it outdoor when I was stopped by the waiter.

Waiter: "Excuse me sir, you cannot eat outside if you take your food from the buffet"
I was perplexed and bewildered:" Why not?"
Waiter: "You see Sir, the tables outside are meant for guests who order their dinner ala carte."
Akula: "Are you serious? You mean I cannot eat my buffet food outside?"
Waiter: "Yes Sir, that's right."

I was getting annoyed and pissed off.

Akula : " Fine. I want to speak to your F&B Manager"
Waiter: "But why sir?" he said in a calm voice.
Akula : " Just get me you damn Manager"
Waiter: "He's not around, Sir"
Akula : "WTF! Look! I am going outside with my food, and I will eat my dinner, after that, I will light and enjoy my cigarettes. In the mean time you can call the police, RELA, Bomba, SMART TEAM and whoever else you could think off. And you are wasting your time arguing this with me. Maybe you better start calling them now."

I went outside.

(*Sigh* 9 straight hours of course programmes and a hungry stomach really made me mad.)

I don't feel motivated at all.

I wrote a complain note to the Hotel Management.

"I demand your hotel to reconsider this discriminatory and apartheid policy of separating buffet and ala carte patrons. We "the buffet" customers should be given the choice to eat our food anywhere, be it in the restaurant or outside if we wish too."

"P.S. Your hotel sucks!"

I totally forgot that today is my birthday.


Happy Birthday to me.

I accept cash only for present.

And yes, without doubt, this is a self pimping post.



No lah. I am not self pimping myself. Cant take the heat. :)

But KJ is.

It was reported yesterday, that KJ called for younger candidates to be given a chance to contest in the next General Election.

"This is necessary because in politics continuous efforts are needed to rejuvenate the party and Government”-KJ

I agree that there should be a succession plan in every organisation to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

I think this is a smart move by KJ to ensure that he will be chosen for the next GE. I am sure after this statement, all his machai's and balachi's will go out and campaign for new guys (especially him) to be fielded.

Maybe he felt that time is running out and he got no choices other than to expose himself. This will of course reminds the power that be to include him. Otherwise they can just kill off his political career by not selecting him to be a candidate. To further his ambition, he cannot afford not to be a YB.

Hope he'll start cleaning up all his skeleton in his closet.

Like renewing his driving license for example.

But then, come to think of it, maybe he wont need to.

After all jatuh standardlah, for a YB to drive himself.

My best friend and colleague will be moving to Ottawa for her next assignment.

We argued, fought, teased, joked and laughed together all the time. Never mind she's a lady. She will stand her ground if she thinks she's right. She's cool.

I will miss her.

Thats for sure.


So, I have not been able to blog for almost a week.

And to top that, last weekend I went for a motivational course in Kuantan. Its quite tiring but fun, nevertheless.

These past few days, I thought a lot about what makes me the way I am today. (Those who are not interested to read about me writing about myself, please dont go any further. You have been warned.)

I was told that I need to smile more, do away with my serious appearance and I will get more friends. Hmmm...Is my social life that bad? I did mentioned in my previous postings, I hate people who gave me advices without even knowing who I really am. *Sigh*

Sometimes people just assume you are what you look like. Whatever happens to the, "I should know you better before making any judgement" thing?

I cant change how I look like, nor I will change my attitude and character to satisfy somebody. I am what I am. Either like me the way I am, or not.

Doesnt really matter to me anyway.

Cant wait for season 2. The ending is a little bit of anti climax. I expected a lot of fight between Sylar and the heroes, not just stood there and be stabbed by Hiro. All in all a good season. Hope the second season would be better.

I really have to blog about this piece. That `mamat' for sure secured a bragging right forever, and its recorded in the news should no one believe him. Doesn't matter even if he fled the scene. But then, I will not be surprised if other not so hunky man will also claimed that he was the man that triggered the catfight.

Ladies, please. I am sure you guys are not THAT desperate. ;)

KUALA TERENGGANU: A man, who reportedly looked like a Bollywood actor, walked into a food court for a teh tarik and triggered a brawl among three women that left one woman scalded and another woman's T-shirt ripped open.

Several chairs and tables were damaged during the fight among the women at the outlet in Merega Beris in Kijal, Kemaman on Saturday.

The shocked man fled the scene.

It all began when the man walked in alone. Two women at two separate stalls immediately tried to get his attention and lure him over to their stalls.

When he stopped to speak with one of the women, her competitor, 21, became so incensed that she marched over to the woman, tore her T-shirt and accused her of being gatal and dressing seductively.

The other woman, 22, immediately grabbed a pan and splashed her attacker with hot water, scalding her.

The scalded woman's mother, 46, rushed to her daughter's aid, hurling chairs at her assailant, damaging tables and alarming the other customers, said state Deputy CID Chief Supt Khairi Ahrasa yesterday.

He said the scalded woman was now warded at the Kemaman Hospital.

It was reported today in Berita Harian, that the Government had appointed several writers to to counter lies that were spread especially when it involves Goverment leaders in the Internet. The Sports and Youth Minister will head the group. You can read the rest of the news here.

Oh well, dear Minister, I would love to read and comment your blog. I do want to know about what the hell happened to Rakan Muda, after all the bruhaha and millions spent to promote it. What kind of impact, if any, it had on our youth? Are Malaysian youth (especially Malays) free from drugs and not wasting their time by `lepak' now?

Anyway, anybody interested to be the Government official blogger?

I made a bad decision to go back to KL from Sungai Petani yesterday's evening. Usually if I travel, I will browse through the Internet or the newspaper to see if there is any big event going on. And if there is, I will postpone my travel or delay it.

The reason is I dont want to be caught in a traffic jam. I am not a patience man. Patience is the ability to wait without complaining and I am definately not that.

And I got stuck. I knew that there is Kedah and Perlis FA cup final scheduled to be held in Batu Kawan Stadium, Penang. I was so stupid to think that Batu Kawan is in the island, not in the mainland. Obviously, the fans were on the right course, heading there, with me among them. Had I figured it out, I could easily avoided the traffic jam by delaying my return for a few hours.

I was caught in a traffic jam for 1 hour entering Sungai Dua toll plaza and another one right before Juru toll plaza all the way to the Batu Kawan exit for another 2 excruciating hours.

I did wonder about what the hell are highways for? To make life easier? Balik kampung during raya or other holidays are really stressfull. Last raya, my sister took about 16 hours instead of the normal 5 hours from KL to Sungai Petani.

Kedah won the match for the record.

Yeah, yeah, its my own fault.


Dammit. Yeah, okay, so, All Blacks loose to the Wallabies. Then again, its not the end of the world yet. After all, Wallabies took about what, 4 years to beat All Blacks?


The All Blacks have finally been beaten, and despite the disappointing nature of defeat, their coach Graham Henry insists the lose is "a good thing".

Most people, before the game, were convinced that New Zealand would sweep all before them in the coming months resulting in a World Cup win. The result does not cast New Zealand's credentials into doubt, but it does give hope to others and prove they are not invincible.

Henry, who has grown tired on the invincible tag, believes the defeat will give the squad a chance to now reaccess where they are as well as providing huge motivation for the coming months.

"I think this is probably a very good thing in many respects," he told Fox Sports.

"It just put us back on our hind foot and made us think and rethink what we are doing.

"Hopefully this is motivational."

The expectation for New Zealand to deliver the World Cup has grown over the past years and has now become something of a burden, similar to 2003. At that stage four years ago New Zealand had whitewashed Australia in the Bledisloe Cup but went on to lose 22-10 in the World Cup semi-final.

Despite the winning score coming from a Luke McAlister mistake Henry was quick to defend the makeshift outside centre.

"We made some mistakes defensively generally, I won't blame any particular individual and that's the way it was," he said.

"And Mortlock played particularly well, had a big game, and exposed us a couple of times."

Henry was however far from happy with the manner in which referee Jonker handled the scrum, with both sides struggling to come to terms with his interpretations of the laws.

"It's frustrating the scrum at the moment," he said. "It needs to be looked at.

"That's not the way to play it really with short-arm penalties all the time. It's frustrating."
