Tia Maria

Live band, live band, and live band. It's everywhere in Kota Kinabalu. This is taken at BB Cafe Kota Kinabalu.

Oh, I got jealous when an Indian-Sabahan couple starts kissing at a few tables from us.

But, I ain't high on Tia Maria on the next working day~

p/s : This is post #4 to bait you all to come over to Kota Kinabalu.

Of over-shot, open house, Wendy, Martin and Tamparuli

Waking up at 10.00 AM, forgetting a meeting at XXX is not my fault. It is "Saturday's fault"!

So I decide that I must get out from the border of Kota Kinabalu city today. Where to? Wendy & Ezra's open house at Tuaran, 45 minutes away from my rented unit in Kepayan.

Don't worry, wz. That is not Natasya's baby. She is not able to make one in 4 months time
since her posting here.

Tamparuli country side with many cows grazing
This is the new Tamparuli bridge, built after the previous one been washed away by strong current.

And to prove that I am in Sabah at the moment, I post a picture of me
and the Ranau's lengui of Unduk Ngadau.. (Wendy yang suka gaduh dengan Martin)

Upcoming plan next weekend : Poring Hot Springs

i'm going to bed

Hours of non-stop live band. All up-to-date songs. Hot chicks everywhere. Just that it's without a bed. I wonder what happen next if there are beds.

I'm really going to bed now after a few drinks.

ECONOMICS 101 : Models Explained

SOCIALISM: You have 2 cows, so you give one to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and shoots you.

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

MALAYSIAN BUMIPUTRAISM: You have two cows, the State takes one and gives it to your bumiputra neighbour. From the milk you sell from the remaining cow you buy a bull and mulitply your herd. The State take 30 per cent of your herd as it grows and give them to your bumiputra neigbour. Your bumiputra neighbour has a kenduri each time they
receive a cow.

UMNOPUTRAISM : The State takes 30 per cent of your herd and parks them in Switzerland in the name of some UMNO official or close relatives, friends and sons-in-law.

MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT LINKED OR BUMIPUTRA CORPORATION : You have two cows. You employ mainly bumiputras to milk them. But both cows have been sent to the kenduri, so the State gives you more cows and write off the losses of the first two. After several kenduris later, you invite an American or German Corporation to turnaround the losses. The Japanese have however already taken their two original cows back home to Japan .

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. Sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public buys your bull.

A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You decide to have lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 2 cows. You stop counting cows because you're sobering up and open another bottle of

A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5,000 cows. None of them belong to you. You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINA CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine
productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship them

A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. Both are mad.

IRAQI CORPORATION: Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No-one believes you, so they bomb you and invade your country. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy.


Got this piece of junk here.

Red Beans

Hong Dou

I haven't yet experienced
The feeling of a wintry snowfall
We will tremble together
And better understand what gentleness is
I haven't yet held hands with you
To walk across this untamed desert
Perhaps from now on
We will learn to treasure eternal love

* Sometimes sometimes
I believe that everything has an end
In meeting and parting there are times
Where neither will last forever
But I sometimes
Would rather choose to love and not let go
Until we've seen all there is to see
Perhaps you'll spend eternity with me

I haven't turned the red beans
Into persistent scars
To be shared by us both
So we can better understand the pain of unrequited love
I haven't yet experienced
The warmth of a waking kiss
Perhaps around me
You have begun to pursue a lonely freedom

Recently I had been busy with work. Ya ya, I know I FFKed so many people and turned down so many gatherings. I feel so sorry for it and I will make up in Kota Kinabalu. Drop me a message if you come!

Who cares whether it's first oil or not, now we have first fire in Samarang on 09-09-09.

Bye Samarang, for this week. Next week I'll come again by boat!
