Earth Celebrating 2007

It is the last day of earth year – 2006. Earthlings’ are preparing to welcome 2007, the new year ahead.

Well, let’s see what’s new.

Millions of people are crowding around ‘happening’ places all over the world, watching the second hand on big giant clock ticks, and do count down. Sadly, what these earthlings do not know at this instance is, that they really are counting down to the end of their planet, sooner than later.

Fireworks! Yay! We had it last year, and the year before last, and the year before the year before last… but hey, we are having it like we’ve never had before! It’s bigger, more colourful, and surely, we are burning more of it. Let’s double… no, triple the amount. This way, even our neighbouring countries can see us, and be very jealous of us. And every country may wish to do the same. What’s the contribution of fireworks to mankind again?

Why can’t they have a peaceful New Year celebration, and pray for more surviving years for the planet?

Party time. It’s only trendy to be seen in a party on New Year’s Eve. There’s nothing wrong with having parties and a good time. But the wastage caused by these parties: thrown-away food, half drunk canned drinks, excessive consumption of alcohol and cigarettes, not to mention the noise pollution caused by loud music.

Capitalists are coming up with “new” ideas, to lure earthlings into more and more consumption: new design, new flavour, new style, new jewelleries, new everything – just for the sake of a new year. Unnecessary consumption.

But human beings need something, or someone to tell them what to do, including what to consume. Anything advertised through the media has gotta be good. Are they really the highest being on earth food chain?

Excessive consumption is definitely an on-going thing on earth, and capitalism and commodity are definitely here to stay. Trading environmental priority and humanity for economy achievements is nothing new. The planet Earth has a lifespan. Gaia has a limited resistance towards constant destruction. But these earthlings do not realise that.

Maybe. Just maybe – their subconscious knows it – that explains why they are celebrating and partying like there is no tomorrow.

Maybe. Just maybe – one day, they will come to their senses. And we shall all pray and hope. That is, after all, why we aliens are here.

Sit Back, Relax, And Please Put Your Feet On the Seat

I absolutely hate buses with those facing seats: they are narrow, you get dizzy when you're facing the back of the bus, not to mention that you also have to be staring at other passengers doing the same thing to you; what's worse, THIS:   This person here thinks he owns the bus and had his feet up the whole journey! I was tempted to tell him off but would I dare risk my life dealing with someone this rude and inconsiderate so openly? No, I won't - especially when this is a Seri Kembangan bus route in Malaysia. No offense to the residents there, my family lives there too so trust me - I KNOW. And yes I'm just a coward who only knows how to take a picture and rant about it online, and wished that the bus driver could've done something about it. But then again, this is Malaysia, and this was a Rapid KL bus No.540. You get what I mean, if you're one of the locals.  Such a disgrace to the local people!

Handbags not allowed

This afternoon, I went to Giant Supermarket in Amcorp Mall, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The security guard at the entrance stopped me and demanded me to leave my handbag in an open cupboard (note: not a safe locker). Well for those who are not familiar with this, you may want to know that there is a funny rule here in Malaysia where certain supermarkets require customers to leave their shopping bags in the cupboard prepared by the supermarket. If you insist on having them they will lock the bags with cable ties so that you can't steal anything with those bags. They will usually let the ladies bring have their handbags in but God forbids, they somehow think that I may steal the whole shop with my "gigantic" handbag. So I refused and told them that it is in fact my handbag and I will not leave my handbag with them. He then demanded to know the content of my bag which I refused again because he simply did not have the rights to invade my privacy. Then he decided that he will

Change Of Driving Direction On Just 1 Road In Petaling Jaya - Left To Right, Then Back To Left Within A Month!

Just when I'm about getting used to this 1 road in Petaling Jaya being changed to right side driving last month, walking across this road this morning, it has just been changed back to left side driving!!! Picture taken on 3 Feb 2018 Picture taken this morning Not that I would complain about it being reverted back to normal, but is this really a matter can be taken so lightly that some "authority" can just decide to change twice in such a short period of time? What exactly is the standard of healthy & safety of this country? Or should I just be thankful that no one got killed because of that? Mind you, that's only my hopeful assumption.
