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.

Brand New KL Gateway Mall and Its Rubbish - What a Lovely Contrast

I've not been whingeing for so many years now, I must've grown to be more tolerating and forgiving. Just when the slightest of that thought hits me, I saw this AGAIN today: a pile of unused remaining cement and bits & pieces of construction materials being left unattended by the KL Gateway Station.

I believe these are construction debris from the building of KL Gateway mall and the connecting link bridge to the station, and these are left right under the bridge.

So what happens after the latest shopping mall in town is completed and launched? Perhaps conveniently forgetting to clear out all rubbish, is an option.



This pile is not only creating dirt and pollution, is also an obstruction and a hazard to pedestrians and users of the station. Oh yes I forgot - Malaysia is never known for its considerateness for non-car users 🙄

It's bizarre how this could've been overlooked; isn't it easier (and common sense!!) to just clean them up? Oh no no no, that'd be too…

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!!!

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.

Left Driving? Right Driving? Overnight Change Of Driving Rule On Just 1 Road In Petaling Jaya

The last time I checked, Malaysia is a left-hand driving country - at least that's how I remembered it. However, walking to work one morning, a familiar road has been changed to right-hand driving. I was just about to tell the driver off for driving on the wrong side of the road, only to realise that I was the one who was in the WRONG.

I have absolutely no idea why this particular road had a change in driving rule overnight, all I know is that this is a really dangerous thing to do, and that it probably can only happen in this country.

Another fame to the Boleh Land! I can only pray that no one gets hurt because of this.
