Many people will probably stop reading at this moment, cause I'm gonna start on politics. But bear with me, cause after that it gets better.
I'm a liberal, thus I understand where PKR comes from, and if they promote so-called freedom of speech, I'd vote for them.
Problem is, they're the same gang with PAS, who I must say are the most obnoxious group of people I can see. Fine, fight for Muslim rights, but which rights are you fighting for? The right of the Muslims to keep their faith in order, or the right of Malay's to keep Islam a totally Malay thing? You show me a Chinese or Indian Muslim whose in that party then I'll reconsider joining this misbegotten-delusional-blowwindoutofyourrectum-party.
I must say though, getting Beyonce to postpone her concert is like getting a cute Persian cat. You stroke it and enjoy it, but if you smother it too much It'll bite you.
Now, to the more interesting part.
Two weeks ago, NASA bombed the moon. Seriously. Go google it.
Three weeks ago, or so, a couple of countries got hit by earthquakes. Last week, Mini, Andrea and I got into an accident and lives, including ours would be lost. Every single day, I see people's Facebook complaining about not getting Jimmy Choo's or Gucci Handbags or complaining about their boyfriends or girlfriends or gay friends or no friends.
Get a little perspective, please.
Quotes of the week.
"The personality of a rectum" - Alwyn Lau, KDU Marketing lecturer.

"Stealing from your boss, that's totally unethical. But perfect qualifications to be a pirate" - Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory
And I leave you with the ultimate line in science-fiction (even though I'm more of a Star Wars guy and despise Trekkies)

Have a good weekend and take care of each other

Monday, 12 October 2009
It's been an interesting couple of months. So bear with me with the updates before I get to the fun stuff.
I'm doing my Murdoch Bachelors of Media at KDU (see how I didn't say 'I'm at KDU? Interesting point to ponder), and regardless of the hard work, I'm having fun. The classmates are great too, because unlike diploma, everybody actually has a talent for something and we all learn while competing with each other, so it's all feel good in class and competition at home.
On a related note, things are changing in the media world. Some formerly-black guy died, some former Angel died, and some former Boyzone-turned Gay man died. On more important news, David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who, and I'm finally getting to grips with the fact that an actor who I've grown to love and whose portrayal of a character is the best I've ever seen, tied with Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow (Malaysians couldn't care less bout Doctor Who, cause let's face it, we don't have the mental capability to enjoy good quality shows. Example: Aliens vs Predator). Please, stop downloading Gossip Girl and download Doctor Who (preferably, the episode Love & Monster's, which is a good episode for beginners).
David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor (Good Looking man, isn't he ladies?). Goodbye David, thanks for the good memories. Matt Smith has big shoes to fill (as the Eleventh Doctor).
In the real world, some men stepped on a cows head (probably caused they were trying to avoid the cow shit) and it seemed to piss people off. I'll just say, that these guys, dah batal puasa dah.
Now the interesting stories.
First: Met this girl named Lina. We became fast friends, mainly because her birthdays two days before mine (and the same day with my classmate, Andrea). However, here's a small network of how small our worlds are.
Lina = her best friend = my former classmate
Lina = another friend = my current classmate
Me = Aiman = Aiman's Neighbour = Lina's classmate = Lina herself
We have about 13 networks (yes Lina, I checked), thus it's a small bloody world.
Another small world story
Anna (my Screen Studies lecturer) = best friend to my diploma classmate.
And then there's Mini, Yvonne, Cassie and countless others. I believe that as far as I run, I can't get away, so I should stop running and start sitting on the couch (I gained 8 kg's by the way).
Interesting funny stories:
Mini (whose mixed Indian, Thai, Chinese, and countless others) didn't come to class one day. Thus,
Andrea: Bob why is Mini not coming to class?
Bob: She's at the Thai embassy.
Andrea: WHAT? WHY?
Bob: She got caught supporting HINDRAF. They're trying to sort things out.
Andrea: OMFG! MINI SUPPORTS HINDRAF?
And then, of course, the roles are reversed.
Andrea missed a couple of days of classes (and she's never one to miss classes. She's the class leader and secretary) because she was sick, with an eye infection which made her half blind for a couple of days.
Mini: Did Andrea come to class today?
Bob: No. She lost one eye yesterday cause of an accident.
Mini: WTF? What happened?!
Bob: She fell on a cat and the cat scratched her eye out.
Mini: ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?!
These two girls, who are my posse, homies, boys in the hood in class, are intelligent, sophisticated women (pretty too). So it feels good that I can pull their legs. :D
I'm off. I'll get back to my normal ramblings about society, media and friends soon :D
The great and Bountiful Bob Empire
