Maybe he's not really walking down the street where these group of people could be seen. I'm sure most of us agree that these group of people are not just 'sitting' but in most criminal cases which had happened in Sabah were because of that particular group. It's a very unhealthy for the locals and most of us, even myself, are scared when being with these people at times especially during night.
Negative impact also could be seen in economy where these people actually 'filled' the vacancies we have causing the number of unemplyment increase. Despite the fact that locals should be more proactive in finding job, these people really work hard to fit themselves in Sabah. Then again, most of them are also jobless, causing them to steal, rob or even break into people's house. Don't he sees all these things?
But maybe there's what we call as 'political agenda(s)' behind all these things, yes? We never know because as if the the Parliment and DUN are the only place that such as these things were being discussed but details were not narrowed down to the public. Is it or isn't it?
Being transparent, I really hope the authorities will at least explain to the public in whatever action taken upon Sabah, the precious Land Below The Wind. This is my land and I own every little soil in it, every little moment of it and everything of it!
It's a combined birthday actually (Ned 22 May, Roger 24th May and Red 28th May). Sure made my birthday party a little more speciall this year because I shared it with two other friends and or course, some of my many good and close friends. A little disturbed, knowing the fact that I'm getting older by the minute but I realize, the world grew older with you and there's not point of getting worried... Although, honestly, I'm a bit scared.. Hahaha.. Nevertheless, I am happy to be able to celebrate my birthday again this year. Put up a small party to a few close friends...
These are some of the photos I would like to share with you...
My Cake For You.. hehehehe...

I know most of you out there had been talking about this for quite sometimes. I personally know this last week when one of my friend ask me the best host to create his own blog. He told me that our ex-PM, Tun. Dr. Mahathir Mohammad now have his own blog.
And yes, the issues are still there and I don't think it's going to be over anytime soon... Hehehe.. Comments reached up to 1100 for the 1st posting and 800 for the 2nd one. And that is one famous blogger.
He need no introduction to this world, of course.. He is indeed a very well respected man and he recently added up the number of bloggers in Malaysia. In no time, http://www.chedet.com/ has become Malaysia 1st Blog. I really hope our Cabinet Ministers will have their own blog. Sure waiting for Pak Lah to have his..
Nevertheless, to Tun. Dr. Mahathir, happy blogging and erm, welcome to the club..
Since blogging now is a common thing, many people seems to have at least one blog. As many bloggers treat blogging as an online diary, it allows the cyber community to potray their everyday's life. It also allows them to meet and connect with new friends in a more interesting way.
As globalization endorse critical thinking, the cyber community had moved forward, in conjunction with the paradigm shift, blogs are not just an 'online-diary' but are now a method for people to express their mind and thoughts, views and oppinions. I believe that every people have the right to express their mind but I also believe that, not every of it is as 'right' and as 'correct' as it may seems.
It is not shocking to know that our blogs now are carefully monitored by the authorities. In most term, the word 'mis-use' might be the best word to describe the usage of blogs nowadays, as they may call it. As blogging were once very personal, now it has become a world issue. In Malaysia itself, where blogging are still consider new to some people (by right it is not), the usage of blogging seems rather discreet. Nevertheless, recent election shows the usage of blogs as a method to propose agendas in politic and only after that does the givernment realize how influential the cyber communities will be.
Personally for me, I have my own rights to use my blog in whatever means I prefer it to be. I am very caferul in my posts, be the vocabulary choice, headings or any graphic materials. We know that the first Malaysian bloggers is being held custody. It's something that we as bloggers should pay concern to - learn from.
I just want 'people' out there to understand, bloggers are people with criticial thinking. Bloggers are those fancy people who wanted to express their thoughts freely. Bloggers are smart people. I really want blogger friends out there to be more analytical in posts for the betterment of the country and criticizing smartly where appropriate.
Let's us be a responsible bloggers, proving that Malaysian Bloggers especially Sabahan Bloggers are those bloggers with determination to preserve integrity and act as catalysts to build a better cyber world. Let us all...
I won this award from Urang Ranau yesterday, thanks to Urang Ranau. I will try to make my blog as interesting as I can so that I can will another award... hehehehe... I am just happy that people realize the existence of my blog...
While many people might assume that Mother's Day is a holiday invented by the fine folks at Hallmark, it's not so. The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece, honoring Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. The Romans called their version of the event the Hilaria, and celebrated on the Ides of March by making offerings in the temple of Cybele, the mother of the Gods. Early Christians celebrated the festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ.
In more recent times, relatively speaking -- England in the 1600s--the celebration was expanded to include all mothers with "Mothering Sunday" being celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter). Besides attending church services in honor of the Virgin Mary, children returned home from the cities with gifts, flowers, and special Mothering Day cakes that were important parts of the celebration.
Mother's Day festivities in the United States date back to 1872 when Julia Ward Howe (her other claim to fame was writing the lyrics for the "Battle Hymn of the Republic") suggested the day be dedicated to peace. Ms. Howe would hold organized Mother's Day meetings in Boston, Massachusetts ever year.
In 1907, Ana Jarvis, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania school teacher, furthered the cause by beginning a campaign to establish a national Mother's Day. Ms. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, which happened to be on the 2nd Sunday of May that year. By the following year, Mother's Day was also being celebrated in Philadelphia.
Not content to rest on her laurels, Ms. Jarvis and her supporters began to write to ministers, businessman, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day and in 1912, the Mother's Day International Association was incorporated for the purpose of promoting the day and its observance. By 1911, Mother's Day was celebrated in almost every state in the nation. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made it official by proclaiming Mother's Day a national holiday that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.
It is somewhat ironic that after all her efforts, Ana Jarvis ended up growing bitter over what she perceived as the corruption of the holiday she created. She abhorred the commercialization of the holiday and grew so enraged by it that she filed a lawsuit to stop a 1923 Mother's Day festival and was even arrested for disturbing the peace at a war mothers' convention where women sold white carnations -- Jarvis' symbol for mothers -- to raise money. Ana Jarvis' story is not a happy one. Things went from bad to worse and she eventually lost everything and everyone that was close to her and died alone in a sanatorium in 1948. Shortly before her death, Jarvis told a reporter she was sorry she had ever started Mother's Day.
Ana may be gone, but Mother's Day lives on, regardless of whether it meets her approval. Many countries throughout the world celebrate Mother's Day at various times throughout the year, but some such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium also celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May.
Related Info The Mother Behind Mother's Day The story behind Ana Jarvis's mother, one Anna Maria Reeves Jarvis, is just as interesting than the story of Mother's Day itself. The elder Mrs. Jarvis organized a series of "Mother's Work Camps" in West Virginia to improve health and sanitary conditions before the civil war. During the war she declared neutrality for her organizations and regularly aided soldiers in need on both sides of the struggle.
