Newspapers reported that our Healthcare would be liberalised after some AFTA agreements. See here
Would we be expecting characters like Dr. House? Dr. Dopey? Dr. McDreamy? Dr. Meredith? Poohrah!
It was our old trip to the wilds near Gunung Kinabalu, the highest mountain of Malaysia. This was around 1992. Met some natives and bought these red durians. They do look unique but do not taste good. The red flesh is as hard as the Jackfruit (Nangka).

For novelty sake, why can't some enterprising biologist cross and clone these with the West Malaysian champion a.k.a Musang King to create an awesome hybrid?
With prices of durians shooting up always, a new one would make a killing!

This year, just last week, a different Owl came. Was trying to shoot a picture of a Spotted Wood Owl (below) but in vain. Only hear his calling with a loud, deep single note "HOOOooo!"
Witnessed a pair flying off this site at 19:35hrs.
This pair, mating perhaps, have been around for a month now.
My short Video clip of the Brown Wood Owl hooting, below.

Lately, browsing thru the net via TM's Steamyx is crawling! You call that Broadband?
It is quite OK if you are just going in getting your mails from GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail....
but surfing is damn.....slow! It takes 4 minutes to load-up a home page averagingly.
Is this really Broadband ? TM charges RM110.00 for the line plus 1Mb Broadband package and choosing the 2Mb Broadband plus line is all pure bull shit because unless one lives next to Big Shots...i.e in Cyberjaya/Putrajaya. Even in PJ, one cannot get 2Mb. Why?
It is the absence of fibre-optic cables!
Just look at other countries.
In a computer magazine in the UK (one of the most expensive Cities in the World) , A 2Mb Broadband package with a phoneline, it costs only RM80.60!! (currency exchange at Pound Sterling 5.2, March 2009)
Why is TM overcharging us?
It is almost impossible to get involved in on-line (network) gaming with such slow speed which is now out of date. Just like High Definition TV, our RTM was also caught sleeping!!!
This morning's newspaper reported ASSTRO also lost money!!! A monopoly also lost money!
Just like TM, I bet their CEO still gets BIG FAT SALARIES!!! Just like Puncak Niaga's
RM 425,000.00 a MONTH!!!! (not in a year mind you!) No joke!
Kindly join us on Saturday, 28th. March, 2009 by switching off all your lights and power at home at 8pm. for an hour.
This is to show that we still love our dear and suffering Planet. We sincerely believe that for this sixty minutes, Nature would be given a chance to heal herself.
