Tried to access my son's email today and found out that his email has been deleted. Even his blog is also missing. How can this be? Surely the kid didn't mistakenly delete them all by himself.
Had contacted Google to give some answers. Hopefully they can resolve this issue ASAP as I'm in the process of applying for Manchester United vs Manchester City tickets and really need to gain access to his email to get him his ticket.
Be fast Google... this match is the match of the season :)

明天2011年9月16日是马来西亚成立48周年，我谨此恭贺全体马来西亚人民马来西亚日快乐。48年前的9月16日，马来亚联邦首相东姑阿都拉曼、砂劳越首席部长拿督斯蒂芬卡农宁干（Datuk Stephen Kalong Ningkan）、新加坡首席部长李光耀以及沙巴首席部长唐纳斯蒂芬斯（Tun Fuad Donald Stephens）联合成立马来西亚联邦（Federation of Malaysia）。48年前，马来亚、新加坡、沙巴以及砂劳越的人民怀着同一颗心来组织他们的马来西亚梦，一个坚信多元开放、民主自由、廉洁公正、互相尊重、团结互助、信仰自由的马来西亚梦。曾几何时，这个梦想对全体国人是那么得接近，也那么得遥远。由巫统、马华以及国大党为骨干的联盟从1957年马来亚联邦独立便开始统治马来亚。自1970年开始，联盟扩大后的国阵继续成为马来西亚联邦政府和各州政府，一直统治这个国家长达41年。

Timbalan Ketua Angkatan Muda KEADILAN, (AMK) Khairul Anuar Ahmad Zainuddin menggesa Menteri Di Jabatan Perdana Menteri yang bertanggungjawab terhadap hal ehwal Agama Islam, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir menjelaskan rumah mewahnya yang dianggar menelan jutaan ringgit.
Keraguan timbul apabila menteri yang baru dilantik 3 tahun oleh Perdana Menteri dan hanya memiliki gaji tidak menjangkau RM15,000 itu, mampu memiliki kediaman mewah dalam masa yang singkat.
"Kalau dia (Jamil Khir) rasa seorang yang berpegang teguh terhadap agama dan ada kebertanggungjawaban terhadap negara, dia perlu jujur menjelaskan kekayaan sebelum dan selepas (menjadi menteri)," katanya mengulas isu yang didedah oleh akhbar Suara Keadilan semalam.
Khairul berkata ia bukan perkara memeranjatkan kerana menjadi kebiasaan menteri yang ditadbir Kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) hidup mewah.
Beliau merujuk kes bekas Menteri Selangor Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo yang mencetus kontroversi kerana kos kediamannya dikatakan melebihi kemampuan sebagai menteri besar yang berkhidmat selama lapan tahun.
"Rakyat pun tidak terperanjat dengan isu yang sudah dianggap biasa ini. Oleh itu, jika beliau (Jamil) ada sedikit rasa tanggungjawab dengan imej dan kedudukannya, beliau perlu tampil memberi penjelasan.
"Walaupun (dia) Jamil Khir merupakan Menteri Agama namun ia bukanlah jaminan beliau berperangai seperti Menteri-menteri lain" katanya kepada Keadilandaily.
Sebelum ini KEADILAN pernah mempersoalkan kehilangan RM32,000 wang zakat Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (MAIWP) didakwa membiayai yuran guaman Jamil Khir dan Pengarah Jabatan Islam (JAWI), Datuk Che Mat Ali.
Ia terbongkar melalui kenyataan media Timbalan Menteri di Jabatan Menteri, Datuk Mashitah Ibrahim, beberapa bulan lalu.
Wang zakat tersebut didakwa digunakan bagi menghalang permohonan qazaf Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim terhadap Saiful Bukhari Azlan, sedangkan Jamil dan Che Mat tidak tergolong dalam kategori yang layak menerima zakat.
Sekadar makluman, ini adalah salah satu contoh siasatan sampai ke lubang cacing akan dilakukan apabila PR mengambil alih pemerintahan negara nanti.
Jika terbukti bersalah, samalah nanti nasib Jamil Khir dengan nasib Khir Toyo juga. Tak dapat duduk di mahligai yang dibina tetapi terpaksa menghabiskan hidup di penjara.
Namun, mungkin itu lebih baik daripada disiksa api neraka....

Stylist iPod Dock Designer's Speaker For Your Home With Geneva – I think it would be nice to share with you a very nice looking designer's speaker for your home decorative purpose as well as enjoying the tunes on your iPhone and iPod. I encounter this when I was checking out the premium Apple reseller – Epicentre at Pavilion. The cool and stylish looking speaker in a dark red rectangle shape caught my attention.
After checking it out, it's by Geneva, which is the brand and there's various size of it. Testing out the audio quality was pleasant, it may not be super powerful like Bose, somehow it's satisfying and up to the good quality level.
How about pricing? It's priced at freaking RM1,599. This is something to get when you have extra money.

Malaysia Nokia N9 Price Announed And Available October 2011 – Nokia Malaysia has recently launched the Nokia N9 officially. Nokia N9 is the first MeeGo (MeeGo is an operating system like Android and iOS) phone and probably the last because Nokia is moving towards Windows Phone and is set to launch somewhere early October 2011.
During the recent launch event, Nokia announced the price and availability in Malaysia. It's retailed at price:
The price is pretty acceptable and there's no news about 32GB, it's a big bump up to 64GB after the 16GB version which provide you plenty of mobile storage on the go.
Maxis, DiGi and Celcom will offer package for the Nokia N9, but details are yet to available.
Are you interested in the MeeGo Nokia N9? Personally, I am waiting for the next iPhone.

Dr Ling is said to have played no part in writing or drafting the letter in question. — file pic
A former senior transport ministry official revealed today that Dr Ling, then the minister in charge of the port project, had played no part in writing or even drafting the letter, which had been heavily revised on certain facts that are now being disputed.
Datuk Zaharaah Shaari, who was the Ministry of Transport's (MoT) secretary-general at that time and was tasked with preparing the letter, told the High Court her ex-boss had read the letter dated April 3, 2002 to which he affixed his signature, but "was not involved" in writing or drafting its contents.
She admitted, after persistent questioning by Dr Ling's lawyer, Wong Kian Kheong, that she had made several "corrections" to an original draft by former Port Klang Authority (PKA) chief Datin O.C. Phang.
"The biggest amendment I remember was to paragraph five," she told the High Court, referring to a lengthy explanation over the problem of obtaining the required 1,000 acres of land from Pulau Indah landowner Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for the project that was to turn Port Klang into a mega distribution hub.
Then Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, was asked to "reconsider a proposal for direct purchase from KDSB" after the land price was renegotiated.
Zaharaah said she had amended Phang's draft to "correct" the land acquisition issue over the land price of RM25 per square foot (psf) as calculated by the government's Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH), which she insisted included the overall development cost and interest, and amounted to RM1.088 billion payable over a 10-year period with payment for the first two years suspended.
Wong, however, contested this particular point.
Dr Ling's lead defence counsel contended that Zaharaah's argument did not hold water and that she was in fact, very much aware of it.
He brought the court's attention to the Treasury's then secretary-general, Datuk Samsuddin Hitam's letter to Zaharaah dating back a whole year earlier to February 24, 2001, which highlighted that the RM25 psf price tag on the land was not inclusive of interest, as claimed.
Then Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, was asked to "reconsider a proposal for direct purchase from KDSB" after the land price was renegotiated.
Dr Ling is accused of duping the Malaysian government into embarking on the PKFZ project and triggering a costly financial mess, by double-billing the Cabinet.

Kehilangan 'pengundi klon' menghairankan PAS
Pemuda PAS mendakwa Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) dalam tempoh dua bulan telah mengeluarkan nama lebih 10,000 pengundi yang dikaitkan dengan kes 'kad pengenalan palsu'.
Pengerusi pemulihan demokrasi dan mobilisasi dewan itu Suhaizan Kaiat berkata, perkara itu dikesan setelah pihaknya rancak mengenalpasti keraguan dalam daftar pemilih.
"Bukan mudah untuk sesuatu jabatan kerajaan menjejaki lebih 10,000 kes kad pengenalan palsu dalam waktu dua bulan.
"Persoalannya apakah JPN (Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara) sememangnya sudah memiliki senarai kad pengenalan palsu yang akan dimasukkan dalam daftar pemilih SPR untuk tujuan manipulasi pilihan raya?" soalnya.
Pada sidang media di pejabat PAS di Kuala Lumpur hari ini, Suhaizan turut mengedarkan senarai sepuluh nama bagi membuktikan dakwannya.
Ia melibatkan kes di Selangor, Perak dan Johor yang telah didedahkan sebelum ini.
Shubungan itu, katanya, bukti yang dibangkitkan melambangkang kecelaruan kerja dalam JPN yang memerlukan siasatan segera yang menyebabkan pilihan raya tidak dapat dilakukan dalam masa terdekat.
Sementara itu, Suhaizan juga mendakwa, tiga daripada enam pengundi 'kembar' - mempunyai nama sama dan nombor kad pengenalan hampir sama - kini tidak lagi mempunyai rekod dalam sistem semakan daftar pemilih.
Pemuda PAS mendakwa, semakan mereka semalam mendapati dua pengundi Perlis dan seorang pengundi Kedah yang didedahkan media 17 Ogos lalu kini tiada lagi dalam rekod dalam talian SPR.
Sehubungan itu, Suhaizan berkata, kehilangan data Azhar Ahmad, Besah Mat Dan dan Mansor Abdullah menimbulkan persoalan besar apakah data itu juga termasuk dalam kes kad pengenalan palsu dalam pilihan raya.
Sehari selepas Malaysiakini melaporkan dakwaan enam pengundi 'kembar' itu, Sinar Harian melaporkan bahawa kesemua mereka memang wujud dan ditemui, sekali gus menafikan keraguan PAS bahawa kemungkinan terdapat pengundi tidak sah. -mk

Last night I was on a steam train, going to boarding school while, at the same time and with a growing sense of panic, I was trying to bake a loaf of bread. I knew I didn't have enough time for the loaf to rise and the stress was getting to me.
By the time I woke up from this, my most recent dream, my heart was racing and I felt breathless.
Dreams like this aren't a rare occurrence - my dreams are regularly vivid, colourful and panic-inducing. Some are one-offs while others are repeated over and over again.
I often dream I'm searching for something in an old, crumbling house, or discovering abandoned rooms in my childhood home. Occasionally, the dreams will become nightmares, featuring bereavement, murder or terrifying chases up spiral staircases.
By contrast, my husband tends to have dreams so dull he either doesn't remember them, or recounts such gems as: 'I was waiting to buy a new printer cartridge and the receptionist told me to take a seat.' Thrilling stuff.
However, it seems our experiences are pretty typical. 'Women tend to experience a wider variety of dreams than men,' explains dream researcher Professor Kelly Bulkeley, co-author of Dreaming In The Classroom.

Manis is an old cow.
She left her old bull Miang because she couldn't stand him bulshitting her too often.
Now her old ex bull is grazing around with a much younger cow Birah..Mauuoooo!
With little makeup and just her au naturel beauty, Manis still looks mmmoooh!
Her ex bull thinks she wants him back.
Now he's bulshitting himself!
Manis may be a lonely old cow but she is one hell of a dignified cow !!
Birah wears loads of makeup and has been teasing Manis over her looks!
Manis is not envious. She was once young and much prettier than Birah.
And she seldom wears makeup.
"You're so ugly!! You have so many black spots on your face!
No wonder Miang detests you! "
Manis smilingly and coyly replied..
" Obviously, your parents didn't raise you well!
Your mouth is awfully stinky!
Then oneday, Pak Tani came to check on his flock of cows.
He wanted to sell two of his cows for slaughter at the market.
Looking at the flabby, good-natured Manis, who had expanded his livestock for many years, he patted her head gently and whispered..
"You have served me well!
I will never ever let you go! Good ol' girl!"
Upon turning around, he saw the younger, steadier Birah.
He was puzzled as to why she has not been as fertile as expected..she has so far produced him a sole calf..there should have been a few more by now!
Maybe it's because she is one of those sadly barren ones?
Or maybe, Miang has not been taking enough Tongkat Ali and is shooting blanks!??
"O well..come you two..follow me to the market! It's time!"
And off the farmer went with the cuddly pair, who have always thought too selfishly of themselves!
Birah cried for she knew God had heard her belittling Manis far too much..Moohoo!!
Miang deserved his fate for he never once reprimanded Birah for her snootishness and her arrogance.
He seemed to have totally forgotten that Manis carried his quality-breed calves and helped him continue his healthy lineage.
"He's an old bull but still, he'll fetch a good price for rendang or opor kenduris"..thought Pak Tani.
The end..Moooo ouwch!!
p.s. Gottcha babe!:DD

Helmed by singer/songwriter Pete Teo, "Undilah" wants you to get out there and vote. — Picture by Jack Ooi
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 — Celebrities have been used to sell everything from shampoos to airline tickets. In fact, in the United States, they even go on the stump for their favourite election candidates.
In what looks like a game of catch-up or political awakening, Malaysian artistes and film-makers are adding their voices to viral campaigns aimed at strengthening civil society in Malaysia.
Working with shoestring budgets and bolstered by the goodwill of volunteers, these direct-to-initiatives harness the power of social media and the Internet to carry their message of empowerment to a new generation of hyper-connected voters.
In other words, they are reaching out to the youth of this country.
One such effort is "Undilah", helmed by singer/songwriter Pete Teo, which aims to hammer home the point that every vote counts and that the government is ultimately responsible to the people.
"This is my country. Stop shitting on the sidewalk. It's that sense of ownership that we need to inculcate," Teo told The Malaysian Insider.
Namewee says his directorial debut "Nasi Lemak 2.0" is about the muhibbah spirit. — Picture by Jack Ooi
"Ultimately, this bunch of people who sit in Parliament... they work for us. We don't work for them. Their salaries are paid by taxpayers. And once every four to five years, we decide whether they go back to Parliament again."
Malaysians who gripe about the state of the nation should not just pin their hopes on "heroes" like Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or even former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to right perceived wrongs without first making their wishes known through the ballot box, Teo stressed.
The trailer for "Undilah" is already out; against a funky rap song and lyrics that go, "Undilah, jangan tidur" you see — yes, all in one video — singer Namewee, actor/director Afdlin Shauki, actress Sharifah Amani, politicians like MCA's Wee Ka Siong and PKR's Nurul Izzah and even AirAsia's Tan Sri Tony Fernandes exhorting you to get out there to vote.

Komunis: Utusan Malaysia disaman
KUALA LUMPUR, 14 sept: Timbalan Presiden PAS Mohamad Sabu hari ini menyaman akhbar Utusan Malaysia ekoran penyiaran satu berita yang didakwa memfitnahnya berhubung isu komunis.
Saman tersebut difailkan pagi tadi di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur melalui firma guaman Tetuan Mohamed Hanipa & Associates.
Ianya berikutan laporan muka depan akhbar Umno itu pada 27 Ogos lalu bertajuk "Mohamd Sabu Hina Pejuang, Anggap Pengganas Komunis Hero Sebenar Tragedi Bukit Kepong" yang didakwanya sebagai fitnah.
"Saya hanya mempertahankan diri dan mengelak daripada fitnah terutama tuduhan komunis, tuduhan sebagai pengganas dan mempertikai aqidah.
"Fitnah-fitnah yang disebutkan tadi boleh menyebabkan keselamatan saya dan keluarga saya terjejas, maka kita perlu ambil tindakan undang-undang," kata Mohamad pada sidang medianya di Pejabat Agung PAS hari ini.
Turut serta pada sidang media itu peguam mewakilinya, Hanipa Maidin.
Menurut Hanipa, saman tersebut menamakan dua pihak iaitu Ketua Pengarang Kumpulan Utusan, Datuk Aziz Ishak dan Utusan Melayu (Malaysia) Berhad sebagai pencetak dan penerbit akhbar berbahasa Melayu itu.
Antara yang dituntut termasuklah ganti rugi am, ganti rugi teruk dan ganti rugi teladan.
Bagaimanapun jumlah ganti rugi tersebut tidak ditentukan dan bergantung kepada tafsiran mahkamah.
Dalam laporan Utusan Malaysia 27 Ogos lalu, akhbar itu menyiarkan Mohamad Sabu sebagai mendakwa Mat Indera, lelaki yang didakwa bersekongkol dengan Goh Pen Tun dan 200 anggota komunis adalah hero sebenar, bukannya 25 anggota polis dan keluarga mereka yang mempertahankan diri dalam serangan di balai tersebut.
Bagaimanapun laporan itu dakwa Mohamad sebagai tidak benar dan fitnah kerana beliau tidak pernah mengaitkan Mat Indera dengan Komunis namun dilapor sebaliknya oleh Utusan Malaysia.
Ekoran laopran itu juga menurut Mohamad, beliau dan anggota keluarganya yang lain menerima pelbagai ugutan termasuk dalam bentuk khidmat pesanan ringkas (SMS) seperti 'awak patut bertaubat, awak berbohong dan jangan sampai ada yang simbah asid ke atas isteri dan anak perempuan kamu.'
Beliau berkata, ada juga mendesak beliau dibuang negara, termasuk dikenakan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA), selepas laporan akhbar didakwa memesongkan kenyataannya.
Mat Sabu saman Utusan, Muhyiddin dan bekas IGP menyusul

Whenever Malaysia Day comes around, I remember those who wanted to 'Ganyang Malaysia'. We remember it as "Confrontation". We beat the shit out of the enemy and became Malaysia, warts and all. Here is for all who got maimed and laid down their lives, in defending your nation, which sometimes grates on our sensitivities and sacrifice. Happy Malaysia Day!!
To savour the past look on, at the faces of defeat. Nowadays our politicians molly coddle them....for the politicians, you are a bunch of pansies, parasites and pooftahs(fairies), you have no inkling of courage, selflessness, sacrifice, patriotism and brotherhood. Flying a flag is definitely NOT it. Our politicians, try to be politically correct, forgetting that Indonesia tried to destroy the formation of Malaysia. It was against the absorption of Sabah and Sarawak into then, Malaya from the beginning. Our screwed up politicians have politically correct amnesia.
Yo, you lying politicians, Malaysia was not created by signing documents, we went to war to create Malaysia. Many laid down their lives and were maimed in the creation of Malaysia, they were from Malaysia, Singapore (1st SIR commanded by Lt Col Latiff), United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Read more here..... Acknowledge the deeds of the soldiers, unfortunately you even spit on the National Monument, which was erected to honour them after the Confrontation, by not honoring 'Warriors Day' in front of it.

Sisi peribadi berbeza Gaddafi
TRIPOLI - Paparan video selama 32 saat memaparkan pemimpin Libya digulingkan, Muammar Gaddafi bersama dua cucu lelakinya memberi satu pandangan sisi peribadi berbeza beliau.
Akhbar The Associated Press mendedahkan rakaman tanpa tarikh yang diperoleh melalui komputer riba salah seorang anaknya, Hannibal itu mungkin dirakamkan beberapa bulan lalu.
Rakaman tersebut menunjukkan Gaddafi, 69, kelihatan gembira melayan kerenah kedua-dua cucunya yang kerap memberi tabik hormat kepada datuk mereka selepas beliau selesai mengerjakan solat.
Imej seorang datuk penyayang adalah berbeza dengan sifat Gaddafi sebagai pemimpin diktator yang diketahui umum dan didakwa memerintah Libya dengan kejam selama 42 tahun.
Sementara itu, sekurang-kurangnya 15 pengawal keselamatan maut selepas pasukan barisan pertahanan pro-Gaddafi menyerang pusat pemeriksaan loji minyak di Ras Lanuf, kelmarin.
Tindakan serangan balas tersebut dilancarkan selepas Gaddafi berikrar untuk berjuang merampas Libya kembali.

When the organisers of an upcoming awareness programme first went to visit the Orang Asli village where the event is supposed to be held, reps of a few NGOs who are participating went together with them to check out the place. However, I only got the info after the visit, so I wasn't able to join the first visit.
Yesterday a few members of the organising committee decided to make another visit to settle some things, and I was invited to join them since I missed the first one. The plan was that we were to meet up at the office of the Legal Aid Centre at Ipoh old town at 9.30 am and from there we'd all go in one 4-wheel drive.
Under normal circumstances, I should be able to get there in less than 15 minutes. So, when I made a move at 9 am, I thought I'd be early. To my dismay, there was MAJOR jam in town, something seldom seen in Ipoh. Apparently quite a number of roads were closed due to the Hari Malaysia rehearsal, including the road leading to the Legal Aid Centre office!
There was no way I could turn back once I got into the jam, so I just had to bear with it and continue driving towards the area. I called up the lawyer who had invited me to join them earlier, and apparently he too was caught in the jam, so he told me to just find a parking space and walk over to their office.
With everyone else having somewhat the same mission, finding a parking wasn't easy either. I ended up parking my car at a spot which wasn't a proper parking space. I figured as long as the car wasn't obstructing anything or anyone, I couldn't care less. Then I walked over to the office, thinking I was already late. It was already 10 am by then. Crossing the road was a breeze though since cars weren't allowed into that road.
It turned out the lawyer was even later than I was! He only made it to the office 15 minutes later than me. Anyway, to cut a long short, we (5 of us) finally made a move after 11 am (and I managed to park my car at a proper parking space before we left). The Orang Asli village we were going to, Ulu Geroh, is accessible by car, tarred most of the way, but there was a certain stretch passing through a palm oil plantation where it is advisable to use 4WD or at least vehicles higher than normal cars.
Whatever it is, I am now trying to arrange with a lady from another NGO to go in their 4WD. She will probably be the only one representing her NGO at the event, but doesn't dare drive at the kampong, while I dare drive but don't have a 4WD. My car may be able to make it if I am super careful, but I dare not take the risk as the very next day I will be using my car to drive to Penang for the National Aids Conference.
Let's see how it goes. We still have another 2 weeks to make the necessary arrangements.
This morning I was on clinic duty. When I first went to the doctor's room, the nurse did say there were a few new cases so I just went over to the support service room to wait. I waited and waited and waited… by 11 am there was still no case referred. I was getting sleepy waiting in the room. Finally the nurse came in to refer one guy to us. When she passed me the file and I saw the name of the guy, I thought the name looked familiar. Indeed, he was the one who had called me earlier to ask what he needed to do to get an appointment at the hospital.
You see, Nordin had known about his HIV infection since 10 years ago when he had to do a medical examination during one of his job applications. But the doctor at the private clinic just informed him he was HIV+, no referrals whatsoever given for him to follow up. Nordin himself, feeling okay, didn't bother to take further action.
It was only recently when he started feeling unwell, he decided to get the necessary treatment. But he wasn't sure how to go about. That was when he decided to call us.
To get an appointment at the HIV clinic, he'd first need a referral letter. So, since he could afford it, I advised him to go for a blood test at a private lab, specifying he wanted the HIV test, and then when the results are out, to get a referral letter from the doctor there. And so he did just that, and finally managed to get the referral letter. Today was his first appointment at the hospital.
With a CD4 of 128, chances were Nordin would have to start with HAART immediately. When asked who else knew about his HIV, he mentioned that only his younger sis knew. His work colleagues were concerned that he had lost weight but none of them suspected he had HIV. Apparently they all thought Nordin "kena bomoh" as that was what a former supervisor threatened to do to Nordin before he left his job. Nordin of course had no problem with his colleagues thinking that way. He'd rather have them think as such rather than suspect he has HIV…
Well, that was the only case referred today. Didn't get to see the other case as the guy was immediately sent to the ward while one other person didn't turn up at all.

Tripoli - Kebanyakan pasangan pengantin memilih untuk mengenakan aksesori mewah seperti tali leher atau kafling perkahwinan untuk meraikan hari istimewa itu.
Bagaimanapun, situasi itu tidak menjadi keutamaan bagi salah seorang bakal suami kerana dia memilih untuk bergaya dengan membawa senjata perang pada hari tersebut pada Ahad lepas.
Pasangan itu bergaya dengan memegang senjata api dalam majlis perkahwinan mereka di salah sebuah hotel di Tripoli. Mereka memegang senjata perang itu sepanjang berlangsungnya majlis tersebut.
Pengantin perempuan memutuskan untuk memakai pakaian tradisional iaitu gaun putih dengan kain yang menutupi wajahnya.
Peperangan di Libya yang bermula sejak Februari lalu masih belum berakhir walaupun para pemberontak telah berjaya menumbangkan rejim Muammar Gaddafi menjelang Hari Raya Aidilfitri lalu.
Para pemberontak itu kini memburu Gaddafi yang masih bersembunyi termasuk saki-baki para penyokongnya.
Libya kini ditadbir sebuah badan yang mewakili para pemberontak itu yang dikenali sebagai Majlis Peralihan Kebangsaan (NTC). - Agensi

Big Big Cursor Stylus For Your iPad – I found a very cool thing for your iPad 2. Instead of having a normal pen stylus, you can check out the Big Big Cursor stylus which looks pretty cute and cool for your iPad. It makes using iPad a new experience with the special big stylus which actually shaped like the mouse cursor on your computer screen.
iPad actually built without the need of stylus, but then don't you think with a stylus makes life easier using the iPad like drawing and taking notes?
Well, you might think that it's hard to bring around but you have no worry because it's magnetic and sticks on your magnetic iPad 2 or you can just adhere it to the refrigerator as decorative purpose. No luck for old iPad 1 user like me.
Check it out here.

It's autumn, it's September already and the super awesome durian seaon has finally over. However, it doesn't mean that you cannot eat durian right now, there's still durian out there, it's just that not many and the price is pretty expensive now, and you need to go around to find, it's not as easy to find during durian season like there are stalls everywhere.
Recently, I came across with something call the durian pancake. I have heard about durian cake before but this is my first time encounter with durian pancake. I was invited by the co-founder of Sumptuous Desserts to try out their durian pancake at Sunway Pyramid. It's located right behind the McDonald's ice cream kiosk and I wonder why I didn't notice about it every time I passed by last time.
Let's check out the menu first and see the price and what interested you. =)
As you can see, they have quite a variety of pancake, mainly durian and cempedak, there's also mango too, as well as special made cream puff which had been localized.
So, durian pancake is basically is a thin layer, very thin layer of pancake skin, wrapping the delicious yummy real durian cream with a bit of white cream. Sounds interesting right? But how it taste like and how is the texture and experience?
I want to share with you guys a very cool thing is that the texture, the feeling, the experience is just almost the same, 95% same like eating the real king of fruit – durian, just without the big seed. It tasted the same, with the sweet, strong odor yellow durian cream inside, a little bit mixture of white cream makes the durian pancake a fruitful experience for durian lover like me.
The durian pancake is best to serve right out of the fridge when it's icy cold because it makes eating durian fun and chilling in a hot and tropical country of Malaysia.
A little cool information is that the durian cream is extrated from high quality D24 durian. In term of the content level, the pancake consist of 34g of real durian cream and 28g of white cream. Sounds yum yum right?
I did try cempadak pancake too, the cempadak taste was there but somehow I am more into the durian pancake.
Have you tried before?
