WARNING: This post is gonna be messy. Super messy. It’ll just be random thoughts that comes through my mind. Many things has been happening endlessly in Malaysia the past few weeks, or the past month, I’d say. But one most disappointing thing that’s within me is the way things are handled, the way things are said and of course, the way things are done. Few days back, I was reading the papers. I find those stories so amusing. I read further. To my surprise, I actually thought those news were more interesting than story books. I saw sarcastic remarks, I saw twisted fact, and more so, I saw injustice and cover-ups. And the first thought that came to my mind, “Cows Should Fly in Malaysia”. When I was reading further, I can’t even relate the things said and the things that had happened. More so, as I was surfing the net with news updates and more, I thought things like these doesn’t even tally. Another thought came, who is speaking the truth? Which story seems more believable? Reading further in the newspapers, things did not complement. Neither did they went in ONE. The above was when I was reading the case of a guy who was interrogated and who “commited suicide” apparently. Next, the big city closure which I think everyone would definitely remembered. As a 21 year old
child, instead of thinking deeper, the first thought that came to my mind? Why is the government so afraid of a peaceful demonstration which was just demand for a clean and fair election. People (or more so the Media), always says that they (the Government) has NOTHING TO HIDE. Their actions did not justify what they said. That’s for sure. And to think that the nation would hate the rally for the road blocks, I kinda think that it was the other way round. This was not all. In about a week, the police asked if the nation had videos or proofs of violence and more to show. I thought the videos were obvious and I was feeling each video, each wound, each hurt. And the outcome was.. Expected. Is our Media this predictable these days? Is it the monopolised? And facing the fact, being a Media student here, makes me wonder: “Would I ever write such a piece of news in the future?”. I pondered. Am I going to go against my own conscience to write things that I strongly don’t feel and don’t believe in? Yesterday, I thought came another interesting piece of news. From this day, I might just call the newspaper, story books. A billionaire owns a “gold ship” somewhere in the world? I did not want to guess, but my mind and heart did made a conclusion. But my point is this, is Media (or newspapers, to be more accurate), a place for sarcasm, a place for bickering, a place for stories? I think it’s way more than that. With all that happening 2 weeks ago, I told myself, I’m gonna vote. And at least, my 1 vote could make a difference. People around me has been talking about, why vote? It doesn’t really matter. If 100 people thinks like you, there goes a hundred votes. Well, I think I’ve gone beyond the political parties. And I think people should too. It’s more about voting for who you think can serve you and the country. ____________________________________________________________________________ On a side note, I was disappointed with the recent grammatical errors on the newspaper. I’ve seen 1 in The Star, 2 in New Straits Times. I wonder how this journey as a Media student will take me. But if no one chooses to be the change, let me be. I mean, IF lah! If you are reading, thanks for reading my weekend rants. I’m turning an uncle soon.
Ever wondered where you can dine and party at the same time; at the same place? At Celsius Restaurant and Bar located conveniently and strategically at Fahrenheit88, you get to dine and party all at the same place. This is one of the bar in town which serves you loads of variety of good food. The mushroom soup! It is too western-ish for me. Very thick mushroomy. If you love the real, thick mushroom soup, you should really try this! Oh, they also serve Asian food, apart from Western. They promote a fusion menu which offers loads of good stuffs. The mushroom and brocolli. Simple. If you are a big fan of toufu, yes, be like me. And go mad over these toufu! I forgot what this was named, but you actually know that it’s quite a typical Indian food. Nachos! Nachos! and more Nachos! I first learn how to eat this at Chillis, but you get to bite on this too at Chillis. And now, I am a big fan! More of Asian food, you also get some Cantonese Fried Noodles.Big prawns, though I don’t eat them. Fish and Chips. One thing I’ve to say, the Belgium Chips at Celsius is extremely amazing. They are crunchy and just nice to bite. It is quite addictive. You have been warned. You get this Salmon thingy too. As usual, I suck at the names. But I got to try this. Yes, it’s tender and soft. Didn’t manage to try the potato, But I like the design of it. Haha. More and more of Asian foooood. And more and more of Western food. I recommend you the Belgium Chips. Hahaha.

I can see the effort of each design, each curves and more! This is the Chocolate Lava. It does tastes a little like Milo, according to BRYANLYT, but I thought it was really nice. The heat in it, eat it with ice cream. Wooshhh! It reminds me of the Ice Cream Apple Crumble in Australia. Hmm. Anyone to bake it for me? 😀 With an array of Asian and Western dishes, you should just sit there, dine there.. And of course, end it with a Party.

So, I have been procrastinating much. I have been doing things I should not be doing, ranting about things I should not be ranting. But here is definitely something short I wanna share. Being a fan of musicals and plays, I’ actually thought this was one amazing musical I’ve watched. I’ve watched many, many musicals previously. One of the most memorable Musical that I have watched was Sound of Music. I can remember almost everything and anything! But, this is 1 musical to watch if you have not watched. This musical stood up to me because I really thought that the vocals, arrangements and dance were amazing. I thought the vocals was superb. The voices, the harmonies, the medleys – beyond words. I was tempted to dance along. No joke. But the attendance was slightly disappointing. But I was tapping my feet all the way, singing to those amazing tunes.
Sorry, the recording quality wasn’t too good. But yeah, it’s still something worth listening to.
I mean, you hardly get to go watch such things in Malaysia. Before I forget, I actually got the tickets all thanks to Tourism Selangor. They are one awesome bunch. In short, I don’t want to say too much. You have probably the next few days to catch it. But if you have some good musicals to share and recommend, yes, you sure must tell me about it!
So, I think I’ve teased enough. Most of you are probably ready with their knives and parang ready to stab and slash me. So, yes, I tweeted about it about 4-5 days back that I am giving away 1 pair of MTV Worldstage Passes. And the mechanics were to guess a number form 1-999 for every 1 RT of my Tweet. It was massive. Furthermore, I tweeted that this is just 1 of the giveaway that I am giving away. Cause I’ve loads of Starbucks and Papa John Vouchers with me, ready to be thrown out. To all my Twitter followers. Enough of ranting. I know you are hating all the crap. But… So, one of the days when this was going on… This tweet came in… I actually thought it was a brilliant guess. And all cause he took the initiative to stalk me on Facebook. Yes, stalk. To find my birthdate. And even twitpic-ed me this: It was between 726 or 267. I guess he was so brilliant that he went on with 267 and many many of the other followers decided to go 726, 267, and all the numbers around there. By the way, I am not lifeless. I don’t know why it says I have
0 friends. So yes, @kenintotrouble won the 2 MTV Worldstage Passes. I know many came in with close answers (or copied answers). I am trying to award the 3 closest with some vouchers. So, do stay tuned. Also, I ain’t sure if he’s giving this pair out. So you might wanna follow him and tweet him kao kao and spam him! Haha. And I heard I have another pair of MTV Worldstage Passes to give out. All cause my friend gave it to me. So, you know the drill. @alvinkok_2 is the shameless twitter handler you must follow and stalk.
So, recently I got to taste some good stuffs. Really good stuffs. It’s Smajo’s Pizza; a new kid to the Pizza world. I did the whole tasting and “gluttoning” in Palma Poolside. It was just 2 pizzas, but I thought it was good enough for a great lunch. Chef Ismail, is a chef from an Island far far away,
I am writing this cause I actually forgot where he is from. But no, not a local. This is a pizza you definitely much eat and try if you always complain that “They don’t put enough of this, they don’t put enough of that”. At Smajo’s, they believe that whether or not you are a blogger, a guest, or whoever, you’d still get the same full amount of ingredients. Isn’t that awesome. Okay, I honestly hate double-standards. Thats a fact. So, these are the 2 awesome pizzas I got to try. Don’t you think it’s amazing. You also have to know this: I had these pizzas by the poolside. Damn amazing I tell you. It’s just aweeeeesome viewwww. It’s crazily windy and relaxing. I am gonna give you some ideas. Yeah, my mind’s all over. If you wanna watch hot chics, yeah, maybe you should just have a meal there. But.. That’s obviously not the point. It’s just good good pizza! I know I gained weight, look at the pizzas, not me! I love pineapples, the one with turkey and pineapples are so so so delicious. It’s nothing like an ordinary pizza you get. You get way more than the usual “Hawaiian Pizza”! This was the first time I think I had 4 pieces. Crazy I tell you. Now you know why I gained weight. Blame the pizza. It’s too awesomepossum!There are even more pizzas for your selection. And you definitely must try. If you are cheese, don’t blame me, but I think you’ll be jelak-tified! Haha. They have a cafe now at: Palma Poolside Cafe, Mon’t Kiara Palma, Off Jalan Kiara, 50450 Mon’t Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. But fret not, if thats too far, they are now side-by-side with Old Chang Kee in Bukit Bintang, you’d be able to see a huge wordings that writes SMAJO’S PIZZA. Go give it a try, a bite, or whatever you call it. It’s too awesome that you should not miss this good stuffs. Don’t say I didn’t tell ya!
