7 Billion People!

An interesting piece of news caught my attention today on BBC. There is now officially 7 billion people in the world...that a 7 followed by 9 zeros!

When I was born on April 22nd 1980, there were only 4,437,950,810....I was the number 4,437,950,811 according to the special counter where you can insert your date of birth and see where you stand here

Wow...7 billion people....I guess it would be pretty hard to say I am one of a kind seeing that our unique traits will probably be coincidentally repeated by someone in the 7 billion...however,contradicting myself,it is truly a wonder that we are all still uniquely one in such a large number due simply to the fact that as a living being we evolve and mutate away from one another genetically becoming a unique one though having a common whole.

Doctors, Lawyers, Scientist,Teachers, Terrorist, Spies, Student, Filmmakers,Engineers,Botanist,Athletes,Prostitutes, Actors, Drivers...our species is truly unique in our sheer diversity in our work, fashion and food.I hope we celebrate our diversity...

I really hope being aware of how many people now share this planet... our species will clean up our act and be more environmentally friendly or we could really quickly deplete our resources resulting in our own suffering...

Cheers to all of you!!!!! My 7 billion friends!!!!

16th August 2011 Cineleisure
Distributor : Universal/UIP
Release Date: May 13,2011 (USA)

I am not someone who will walk into a chick flick voluntarily. I skipped titles like sex and the city, definately and made of honour. When the poster of this movie is a couple of girls against a wall dressed up as brides maids and the poster further emphasize the fact with a huge glaring title 'BRIDES MAIDS' I honestly thought of staying away...far, far away.

However, I was curious to see this movie as producer Judd Apatow was involved and he seem to have knack about portraying the most ridiculous scenarios into absolute comic gems like 'knocked up' and 'the 40 year old virgin'.

The movie starts very unassumingly...with an exterior of a house and a sex scene where our lead protagonist Annie is having sex with a man who requests that she cups his balls. It follows with a scene of the morning after where Annie is freshening up before sneaking back into bed pretending she's always this pretty when awakes in the morning. Desperate for someone to love she's hoping he'll fall for her but he asked her to leave the house instead. Annie's effort here outlines the rest of the film where she is just desperate to pull her life together amidst the sudden announcement of her best friend’s wedding. There is also someone new in the picture competing for the affection of her best friend since childhood to further bump her off her equilibrium.

The shots in this movie are also framed very conservatively, the camera and lights were not actively used to create the excitement as the spice of the show did not come from visual but the performances. The performances in the film were so strong that it seems almost deliberate that the camera should be as ordinary as it is. Kristen Wiig performance was at the brink of being comedically overbearing but she still managed a very subtle sincere vulnerability comedy aside which made her character immensely relatable and ever so watchable throughout the dialogue character driven film. The rest of the cast supported her well.

The film does not look expensive to make but it has already made an immensely profitable USD$265,321,170 worldwide which is not suprising seeing that I laughed, reflected and enjoyed myself wholly up to the very much appreciated heart-warming tinge of an end. I would admit that I actually enjoyed and recommend this chick flick!

Praying for Peace.Allahu Akbar

I actually stood on the grounds of ground zero on the 8th aniversary of 911 two years ago... None of my relatives died on 911 but at ground zero...I knelt down and cried...overwhelmed by the overall outpouring of grief by friends and family of the victims of September 11th.
Osama Bin Laden is an evil evil man.Today he is dead.

Everything on TV is about Osama being killed today. Even though he may have promoted evil and the death of many...We should all pray for the soul of our lost brother Osama Bin Laden...we are all a family in God's eye...we should all learn to forgive and love...it is the only way we can ultimately have peace and bring foward the Kingdom of God....allahu akbar...

Blessed Good Friday

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.

To all my Catholic friends...remember

(Luke 23:43)

Have a Blessed Good Friday and Easter Season. =)

If I were Taib Mahmud tonite...I'd probably drop to my knees and cry...I think it is quite overwhelming to have over 30 000 odd people jeering at you and chanting how much they hate you and want you to fall.

The Pakatan Rakyat(People's Alliance) had a major political rally tonight; as it is the eve of polling day tommorow for the Sarawak Elections 2011. Giving no free gifts and having no cute singers to grace the stage but relying purely on politicians highlighting political agendas; they impressively pulled in a monstrous crowd of about 30 000 people. A friend had this to say..."I bet BN is frustrated that they have to pay alot of money and monkey with dubious gimmicks like 'lucky draws' to get their small crowd while PKR impressively draw out thousands of people without promising them gifts. They even get them to part with their money willingly in support of the party when they ask for campaign contributions from the crowd.

It was obvious that I wasn't the only one mesmerized at the sights of the flags waving and the crowd all cheering "Ubah! Ubah! Ubah!" when the police showed up as early as 8.00pm with the intent to stop the gathering. It was not the first incident aroused by an obviously jealous and fearful opponent. Earlier in the day Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan of Bersih 2.0(The Coalition For Free and Fair Election) was also denied entry into Sarawak.

Grabbing the flags, the police who jumped up on stage uninvited tried to usher Chong Siew Chiang off the stage and end the rally but they were outnumbered by a flurry of party supporters who also rushed up on stage to keep the flags flying and to defend the Chong Siew Chiang by any means.

This resulted in a short tussle and I actually saw a glimpse of confusion in a few of the policemen faces who were obviously caught unprepared by how passionate and willing everyone was in keeping the flag flying high.Those off the stage cheered "UBAH! UBAH!" ever louder! Chong Siew Chiang immediately asked everyone to calm. He then politely asked what do the police officers want? A representative of the police said that the rally had to be stopped.The speaker posed the request to the people saying, "The police wants us to stop tonight..do you people want to stop?" The crowd shouted "No!" The speaker then said..."Well, we do not hurt these policemen, they are only working...doing their job,doing what BN has asked them to do to stop us gathering here!" The crowd went "Boo" Then as quickly as they appeared...the policemen shamefully disappeared.For a moment,I stood at awe, marveling at how stupid BN can be to provide free entertainment and to further demonstrate their capability at abusing power, effectively firing enthusiasm and support for me to vote for their rival political party. The night went on smoothly from there...first up was Tony Pua.

As he began to talk it also began to rain but nobody ran off...umbrellas came out but cheers were as loud if not louder.Then they went on to some light entertainment with Violet Yong as she sang various improvised songs about how Taib is a fool and should go while the crowd sang after her...Christina Chiew also arrived on stage after.A thunderous "Karpal!Karpal!Karpal!" preludes to the arrival of one of the highlight of the night, Karpal Singh. He arrive with a huge smile. Karpal was followed by Sim Kwan Yang,See Chew How, Chong Chieng Jen, Nurul Izzah binti Anwar and Nga Khor Ming respectively.
The agenda of the night was obvious.Among the things addressed were...(and these are not in verbatim...i scribbled down what I can in between taking pictures)

1)How BN should be shameful that they stop us from having free speech and highlighting our problems by banning media such as Malaysiakini.

2)How BN still admit to making mistakes. If you have not learn to govern in 50 over years, they should no longer be given a chance.

3)PAS will not turn the country into an Islamic one like BN claims...PAS respect that the country is made by many different religions and will respect the religion of others unlike BN who tried to outlaw the Christians using Allah and defacing the bible! PAS cannot and will not touch the rights of christians to use the word Allah.

4)Koh Su Khoon is nothing but a cowering 'Kao-Tao' SUPP has no balls.

5)While the Barisan National is in a position to deceive the people, the people has woken up and now the people must show their anger,the people must protest by voting BN out!

6)Vote for wht you want.Not what 'white hair' wants.

7)We love our mothers and fathers so we will give a special ang pao to all retirees every year.

8)At Sibu, the prime minister famously said 'you help me,I help you'...how come nobody arrest the prime minister then??? It is illegal what he is doing. What we are doing tonight is legal and the police dare do something illegal like disturbing and arresting us?

9)As we all know,we must defeat BN and win our freedom and defend our rights before all our freedom is lost.

10)Tommorow we send 15 rockets against BN!

Remembered how I said earlier that BN had to pay or provide gifts for people to attend ceramahs? Well, the final tally of the contributions to PKR tonite amounts to RM51,406. The crowds extended all the way to the back where some brave uncomfortable grass and muddy grounds. More people would sit on small stools across the storm drain next to the main road attentively listening to the dreams that lay ahead for all of us.

I smiled tonite.My country may actually change...wait...let me put that more correctly...I may actually have a country soon. Seeing how BN treats the Chinese and Indians like the 'pendatang' , stamp a book I consider sacred and various other atrocities...I really don't feel like I belong to a country. All the whiles the Malays are too short charged while only cronies prosper...'Ubah!' means change...

Today...in about 5 hours...Sarawak will start voting. I will hold in my hands a vote...I will hold in my hand the future of my country. Democracy can be a very romantic thing...I get to have a choice in choosing what dreams I want... I am quite sure I will be making the right choice...

I hope others will do the same.
