I know friends who find the first one non-applicable. I know people who consider this tanah tumpahnya darahku stuff as crap and can’t wait to get their one-way ticket out of here. I know we live in times where you can’t trust the people who are supposed to uphold the constitution. I know that the rule of law is amenable according to how much money you have and the power you wield. I know how in the name of race and religion, you can forget the simplicity and beauty of being human. I know that once upon a time, my siblings and I will create a makeshift pulley to raise the Jalur Gemilang up to the highest step of the staircase at home as we yelled Merdeka! with the crowds on tv and sang Negaraku at midnight. Pray tell, what relevance these five lines still have in these days when everyone wants to be an agent of change…

Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara
Keluhuran perlembagaan
Kedaulatan undang-undang
Kesopanan dan kesusilaan

Happy 51st, Malaysia! I know I will never cease to love you.

“Atah, everyone says I’ve lost weight. I’m still 52 kg lah. Maybe I lost fat or look real tired. Arrghh… haggard, must be…”
“Lost weight? OK no worries, come back and I’ll see if you’ve really lost weight. If needed, we’ll fatten you up.”
“Okie, that sounds good.”
“Have you eaten dinner? Or are you still at work?”
“Nope, I just got back. I’ll probably make some sandwich.”
“Sandwich? Go buy some proper food.”
“Lazy lah… I’ll eat and then sleep.”
“Lazy… Make sure you eat something ah?”

babies and his diet

In conversations on June 2, 2007 by carinasuyin

A debrief from Ah Tan after one of her compulsory natural family planning classes…

“If your husband eats a lot of vegetables and fish, his sperms are more likely to produce girls than boys. And if he is a meat lover, your chances of getting boys are higher.”
“Uh huh…”
“Yeah, so if he is vegetarian, you’ll probably just get girls all the way.”
“What happens if he is an omnivore?”
“We are all omnivores what!”
“I meant if he eats a balanced diet of vegetables, fish and meat and what not. Then what happens?”
“I dunno…”
“You get transgendered babies?”
“Maybe.”
