The Evolution of Dancing Babies

The first time I saw the dancing baby was in the Ally McBeal series in the early 90s. CG effects for TV was still very new at that time, mostly used in Xena Warrior Princess & Hercules.

It wasn't cute at all. In fact, it was scary. I've always thought that expecting mothers shouldn't see it, otherwise their babies would come out like that.

Well, thank goodness dancing babies have evolved on. I came across this clip just today & I thought it was really cool cos the baby was real this time, and he was breakdancing!

Watch the Breakdancing Baby!

All I can say is that I couldn't even measure up to that when breakdancing was the craze in the 80s. And I was a dangerous bad*ss teen back then, full of fire & energy. I sucked like crazy. This baby has put me to deep shame.

One question - was his father like a professional breakdancer, or was he born like that? You know, like when he was born, he came out of his mother with a double flip & landed on the floor with a headstand?

Self Mutilate Your Blog

I found this on the internet. It is one of the most useless & time wasting thing I've ever come across in my entire life so far. Nevertheless, it is a fact that most useless things are FUN. For example, daydreaming that you've just won RM6 million in Toto Jackpot. Now, that's useless, but fun.

The website I'm talking about is called and it let's you unleash a disaster of your choice upon any website. Before you start crossing my name off your friends' list, let me assure you that this is completely safe & harmless to your victims.

It's eazy weezy- just enter the web address & choose a disaster of your choice.

I experimented the Acid Pee on mine. There was this bugger who came by, walked all over my page & started peeing everywhere! And his pee was acid man, eating up my page, just like the acid blood in Aliens.

Aww, that's cute.

And after that I chose the ants. The little things literally carried of texts & Macau photos off my page! Kaypo buggers!

Now this is getting exciting! I decided to try the Dog Poop. Sure enough, the dog came over & did his business.

I don't know what it ate but it did what it had to do! I could just open a bakery.

At that point I started to get bored. When you're doing all this stupid thing to your own sites, it didn't really feel like a very smart thing to do. I began to look around for unsuspecting victims.

CK's page got puked all over by the bugger.

And how could I resist Wombok's site. He's such a good friend.

I made Mount Fuji spit out Cow Dung.

And my final victim, Hunger Hunger! I shall unleash the Baby Scribbler!

Another Pak Lah Joke

The biggest joke in the world will not be on April Fool's Day. The biggest joke appeared on the front page of Borneo Post this morning.

Pak Lah says: Vote for us again.

“We have to look beyond. 15 years ahead and beyond, then we’ve to plan for other things. We’ve to look beyond, ahead of more than one term,” he said.

Did I hear it correctly? It seems like he's thinking of more than one term. It seems like he's thinking of staying in power for 15 more years. OH MY GULI. The country would be sucked up dry by then.

Can you take 15 more years of this?

Group Hands Pak Lah Special Gift
by Andrew Ong (Malaysiakini, Jan 4, 2008)

A group of disgruntled young Malaysians today symbolically handed a 'gift' to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to express their disappointment with his administration. The gift was in form of a yellow pillow and a bolster - both decorated with the Malaysian flag and the Petronas Twin Towers.

Abdullah however was not on hand to receive the items, which the group left at the doorsteps of the premier's office in Putrajaya this morning. Spokesperson for the group Badrul Hisham Shaharin said he and his eight other friends had come to the conclusion that the government's ineffectiveness was due Abdullah's purported 'sleepiness'.

He added that Abdullah had previously been allegedly caught nodding off at various official functions both locally and abroad. 'So we wanted to send a 'memorandum' about what the youth wants.

This memorandum is in form of a pillow... He can use the pillow to continue sleeping or wake up and realise that his administration is not efficient,' Badrul told reporters. Badrul said the group consisted of artists, poets, bloggers, writters and activists but denied that the 'pillow act' was politically motivated.

Badrul (right) informs security guard on the group's intentions.

The group displays posters mocking Abdullah over his alleged 'sleepiness'.

A poster referring to a 2006 report by Turkish newspaper Hurriyet regarding a luxury yacht allegedly linked to Abdullah.

'We don't expect him to reply our 'memorandum'. Thus far, he has never replied any memorandum sent by civil society groups,' Badrul told reporters.

Journalists and the police were stunned when the 'memorandum' turned out to be a pillow and a bolster.

'He can come and pick it up later if he wants,' said Badrul.

The pillow and several posters were left at the main entrance to the Prime Minister's Department.

The banner reads, 'The last hope of the young Malaysians: Continue sleeping O'Prime Minister'.

Security detail took a while to decide how to deal with the items.

More security detail arrive to deal with the items.

The pillow is scanned for dangerous substances.

Eventually, a security personnel removes the items

The Culture of Denial

I've written about the Culture of Zhng & the Culture of Mat Rempit before. But this one, by far, is the most prevailing culture of all in Malaysian politics.

As with all things, they start from the very young. Imagine, a small little boy named Lingam, who was caught talking in class, in a little kampung school, a long time ago.

Teacher: Lingam! If I catch you talking to Fairuz again...
Little Lingam: But I didn't do it!
Teacher: You did! I saw you doing it!
Little Lingam: Irrespective of what you've seen, it looked like me, it sounded like me, but it's not scientifically proven!

Eversince that day, Little Lingam learned the power of creative logic & denial. He grew up to be a powderful lawyer. No one could stop him, because he could bend & deny almost anything -black became white, night became day, wrong became right.

Any other lawyer who dared to fight him in court not only lost, but was left brain-damaged for life.

Irrespective of what others have said [that it is me], it looks like me, it sounds like me.

Malaysian Rupiah in Macau

I was prepared to see people eat dogs & monkeys in Macau/Hong Kong but I wasn't quite prepared for this:

Ngai Tee! That really knocked my logic off a bit. I had to process that carefully. It was like a trick question in the exams.

Standing in front of the exchange counter, I wasn't sure whether to ask for Malaysian Rupiah or maybe Indonesian Ringgit.

Note: The Macau Pataca MOP is almost the same rate as HK dollar & they are used interchangeably in Macau. HK$100 is worth about RM50. The tip to a quick conversion is always roughly half.
