Listened to the words of a song played days back. Don't remember which it was.

"I'm praying to a God that I don't believe in"
Could it be possible?

Feeling a little bit "stressed" out even though classes haven't started yet.
Why? I don't know.

Been reading some books... motivational

First one was by Joe Bateman.. and someone else. title-forgotten ;p

Now embarking on another "The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence" by Dr. Robert Anthony.

Just trying to take in as much as I can, trying to be receptive and open to "new" conditions.

Chinese New Year and mid semester break is over.

Met my friends last night at Kota. Loo Ping and her bf, and Khin Fai.

Also met my god brother there. Not really met, saw each other, text message each other but at the same mamak stall. Both trying to be inconspicuous, in his words "scanning" each other.
Glad to have seen him there.

Point to ponder, am I putting myself out in the deep again? making myself vulnerable, AGAIN?
Is 'god sibling-ship' good for me? Can I trust them? Should I trust them?
# talking about vulnerable, the first book I read talks about making ourselves vulnerable to changes, that we might feel... I think that's what it says.. lolx
# the current book, tells people to not let others (outside factor) to affect you.
Totally opposite but both provides valid reasoning.

Another point to ponder...
Been making adjustments to fit into groups...
Acceptable? or just a fact of life? a necessity? or just being a conversationalist?

Casual sex...
Acceptable in today's society? Virginity still the norm? Do people treasure virginity?
A friend of mine, in one of our conversations somehow supported prostitution, or rather gave reasons why sex with a prostitute is acceptable.

How do I rate myself? Conservative or liberal?
I think I'm in between.
Using conservative reasoning yet chooses liberal stance...SO FAR
maybe because this is the only view point I can see from.
Trying to be "open" to changes.

I think I know how to initiate a friendship, but not sustain it.

No God but God

Joseph Chinyong Liow writes:

For many Muslims in the region, Christian use of the word “Allah” is relatively unproblematic. Jesus, who lived six centuries before Islam was founded, would most likely have used a similar Aramaic word, “Alah”, in reference to God. In fact, the Arabic word “Allah” shares the same root as the Aramaic “Alah” as well as the Hebrew “Elohim”. It is derived from two words, namely “Al”, meaning “the” and “Elah” meaning God. In this sense, it can be argued that “Allah”, “Elohim,” and “Alah” or “Elah” are closely linked.

Today, the word “Allah” is used by Muslims and many Christians alike.

When the Coptic Christians in Egypt celebrate their Christmas Mass, for example, their pope begins his sermon with the phrase “Bismillah” (in the name of God) and uses the word “Allah” throughout. In Southeast Asia, Catholics and Protestants use the term “Allah”; Indonesian Christians have sung prayers to Allah at every Easter and Christmas celebration since the arrival of Christianity on those islands a millennium ago.

The term is as important to Arab and Southeast Asian Christians as it is to Muslims because it stands for the notion of a singular, universal God. “Allah” literally means “the God,” denoting a singular deity. This is particularly significant for Christians in Malaysia, who have been reluctant use the Malay “Tuhan,” because the word does not have a monotheistic connotation. It even has a plural form, “Tuhan-tuhan,” which is understood as “gods.”

The common belief in a singular, universal God should bind Muslims and Christians in Malaysia together. But in Malaysia it has had an opposite, polarising effect. This state of affairs is a consequence of three decades of Islamisation in the country, a process that has effectively constricted the social and political space available to the country’s significant non-Malay, non-Muslim communities. Even before the court ruling, many Malay-Muslim NGOs and lobby groups were discouraging Christians from using “Allah,” claiming that Christians were using it to proselytise to Muslims.


Externally, the Malaysian use of Islam was a means of gaining stature in the Muslim world, especially with those who dismissed the country as secular because of its perceived liberal attitudes: at a 1997 conference in Saudi Arabia former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad openly contested the Arab world’s perception of Malaysia as secular, contending that “many Muslims will of course disagree with us and try to make out that we are ‘secular.’... But we believe and we are equally convinced in our beliefs that what we do is in the service and in accord with Islam.”

Martin Jalleh speaks

Martin Jalleh wrote an article and below I cite the "down" of Malaysia.

I kind of agree with him with today's so called leaders who talk the talk but not walk to walk.
Who claims to be open but never ever admit their mistakes. Both government and opposition irregardless. Perhaps we just have to accept the flaws and vote for values that are "lesser evil".

So people, are you ready to vote for a better tomorrow? Make your vote count!

Muhyiddin claimed that the report appeared to be part of a hidden agenda to destabilise the country. Malaysia is “not asking them to help us anyway. We are helping ourselves and we don’t need their comments because I think a lot of other people know and evaluate ourselves very objectively. We are not basing it on emotions but facts and reality.”

So let’s look at our “self-evaluation report” (that Malaysia is sliding down the slope of becoming even more uncompetitive internationally), made last December by our very own Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Husni Ahmad Hanadzlah, who revealed the following shocking facts and reality:

* Malaysia’s economy has been stagnating for the past decade (in the wake of the 1998 Asian financial crisis)

* It is now trailing badly behind its neighbours like Indonesia in the race for foreign investment.

* It’s export-dependent economy has been hit hard by the global recession, contracting by a forecast 3.0 per cent in 2009 and jeopardising its ambitions of becoming a developed nation by 2020.

* Malaysia is trapped in a low-value-added, low-wage and low-productivity structure.

* Among its peers China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand, Malaysia’s economic growth over the past three years was second-lowest.

* It has lost its competitive edge to remain as the leader of the pack in many sectors of the economy. Its private investment has been steadily in decline. (When the country achieved nationhood in 1957, Malaysia was the second most economically-advanced country in Asia after Japan.- LKS)

* While Singapore and Korea’s nominal per capita GDP grew within the last three decades by 9 and 12 times respectively, Malaysia grew only by a factor of four. (Today, South Korea’s GDP per capita is US$16,450 (RM55,930), Singapore US$34,346, Hong Kong US$29,559 while Malaysia is still at US$7,469.)

* The services sector is underdeveloped, private investment is half the levels before the 1997-98 Asian crisis, and the manufacturing sector is suffering from lack of investment.

* In October Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Mustapa Mohamed admitted that the Thai auto industry had surpassed Malaysia’s despite entering the game at a later stage.

* Malaysia fell three places from 21st to 24th ranking in the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) 2009-2010 and dropped two places in the World Bank’s Doing Business 2010: Reforming Through Difficult Times from 21st to 23rd placing.

Perak crisis OVER.

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 9 — The Federal Court today agreed with the Court of Appeal and ruled that Barisan Nasional's Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir is the lawful Mentri Besar of Perak. This snuffs out the last hope of his toppled political rival and predecessor Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin to be reinstated to the position.

sensitive gov??

It was reported in the Malay Mail last Thursday, 4.2.2010 that the Police and AG Chamber have closed their file on the desecration of the Eucharist by so-called ‘reporters’ from the Al-Islam magazine. It appears that the sensitivities of the Catholics are not significant enough for the Police and the AG Chambers to take action on the mischievous parties who have desecrated what is most holy to us, despite the representations made by the Catholic Lawyers Association to the Home Minister last year (

Please pass this on to any other Catholic or anyone you know who may be interested and do whatever we can to raise awareness about the apathy of the AG, the Police and the government. We do not want a government who will not lift a finger to punish those who desecrate what we believe to be holy. We need a government that will uphold truth and justice and it is obviously not the present government.
