Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

All That Brouhaha Over English... May 08, 2009

This picture speaks a million words ... I guess the fellow in the mosque who took this must have found the words rather funny if not inappropriate to be worn in a mosque for prayers ....

Kinda be like someone walking into the temple or church or synagogue with that t-shirt - only the understanding of English would have made that person think twice before going ahead and wearing it.

But it goes to prove how poor the grasp of English is amongst Malay(sians) that this was thought to be appropriate to be worn into a mosque - I wonder if the person next to this character even understood what the words meant ...

All I can do is to try not to laugh at the blatant stupidity of the clowns who think teaching subjects like Science and Math in English is wrong especially when the wealth of information on the net for these 2 subjects is mostly in English.

Perhaps their real fear is that if Malay(sians) become proficient in English then we might be able to understand how the world views all the idiosyncrasies of this country and that all our la la bolehland bullshit veil will be torn from our eyes and we will all see the sores and blisters and puss hidden by our very controlled media.

But to the moron in this picture, next time when you buy a T-shirt find out what the words mean first and then decide the appropriateness of it.

tsk tsk tsk ... quite rib tickling!
