Universal Studios Singapore: Random & Going Home – Well, this gonna be my last post about Universal Studios Singapore and I'll let the random photos taken in USS speak for itself. To be honest, Universal Studios Singapore is really small, you can finish walking around it within hours and done all the ride too if there's not many people.
Overall, it's a good experience though as I've never been to famous theme park like this. I would like to visit those with more roller coaster and bigger one like Six Flag and Disneyworld in Orlando, FL, USA and Universal Studio Tokyo and more.
#19: Thank you and bye bye. Took us half an hour to queue for the freaking long monorail. Why everyone want to go back at the same time?
One thing, I forget to mention is that the Monster Rock musical show was awesome. Don't miss it in Universal Studios Singapore. Bye bye.

Universal Studios Singapore: Cute Madagascar! – After Far Far Away will be Madagascar. I bet many of you know about the movie Madagascar, it is also one of my favourite animation film and always remember the "I like to move it move it". There's also a few rides here, a merry-go-round with all the Madagascar character instead of horses, and a water ride which takes you through a journey of Madagascar.
At here, you will also get a chance to meet with the Madagascar character and take photos with them. I see the Alex, Marty, Julien and the penguins. All are very cute and when they came out, everyone was busy taking photos of them.
They dance and they sing. Later then we queued up to take photos with them. =D

Universal Studios Singapore: Waterworld Presented By Singtel – Every attractions in Universal Studios Singapore are presented by some big company. Haha, and this one is by Singtel. It makes me feel funny because you can see different branding at there. LOL.
Back to the attractions – Waterworld is actually a show based on the blockbuster film "Waterworld". I have not watched the movie before. The show actually features live action stunt with fire, explosion, acting, wave, and water splashing around. =D
Not bad, you walked into the sheltered setting with ang-mo (caucasian) actors doing stunts, jumping here and there and climbing up and down. Before the show start, they interact with us and play game with us.
Then the show start. Jet skies, motor boat moving here and there. Then explosion, smokes, and fake gun shots.
I was pretty amazed on how they move around and do stunts within a small setting.

Universal Studios Singapore: Lost World & Far Far Away – Previously, I showed you about the Sci-Fi City and now bring you to The Lost World & Far Far Away. Very sad on that day was that Rapid Adventure was closed for repair. It's the water rides that will get you all wet, rushing down the stream.
I feel nothing much at there because couldn't get to play the Rapid Adventure, so it's just walk around, see fake dinosaur and dinosaur egg, as well as ride the mini Canopy Flyer to get a good view of Universal Studios on higher level.
Then wait for the time to come to see the WaterWorld water show which was pretty awesome and will share with you in another post. I am more interested into high speed ride although there's a rock climbing called Amber Rock Climb which we didn't experience.
After The Lost World is the Far Far Way with a more fairytale theme featuring Shrek 4-D Adventures, Donkey Live, Magic Potion Spin and Enchanted Airways.
We had our lunch here randomly at the Friar's Good Food which I think so-so only. Then went to queue for Shrek 4-D Adventure. The queue was longer than other ride, luckily there's air-con and fan at the queuing area.
The Shrek 4-D Advernture was pretty funny and you can experienced some weird scent, shaking chair, water spray and something touching your leg. Haha. Brother told me that it's the same at Universal Studios in USA.
It got hot and sunny at here as there's less shade at Far Far Away and perspiration beats out of the pore.
We actually came to Far Far Away twice because we were bored and done all the famous rides by afternoon. So we went to Donkey LIVE, an interactive music show.
I thought it's real donkey or some human-in-donkey-costume but it's actually a TV projection with an interactive donkey on screen. Haha.

Universal Studios Singapore: Sci-Fi City & Roller Coaster – First stop of my recent Universal Studios Singapore trip is the Sci-Fi City's roller coaster ride – the Cylon and Human. We were actually walking fast to the place as we were afraid of long queue but found out the queue was rather short.
We needed to keep all our stuff on the temporary locker located beside the roller coaster because nothing are allow to place in the pocket. Locker storing only up to half an hour. Then we walked into the roller coaster queuing area, and I got to tell you that the line is very long into it. Haha. Feeling nervous and excited.
It's not scary as seen at there. It's fast, but not fast enough, it's high but not high enough. End up, we rode this rides four times, two each for Cylon and Human. I like the blue one more as it turns 360 degree. I thought I would throw up after my curry puff breakfast, but everything was fine. It's just not scary enough. HAHA
There's a light ride called the Accelerator and it's spinning cup with a futuristic round seating design.
This ride is more for the kids as it's not very fast and doesn't feel dizzy after riding it. One thing about the roller coaster is that the track is not long enough as the whole thing ends within a few minutes. Very fast. Haha.

… because i laughed so hard when i read in the malaysian insider that he said no one are sidelined under BN. no one? then what is the NEP? what is bumiputer privileges? why bumiputera got 7% off for buying houses while non bumiputera don't? why some bumiputera esp. those chidlren of umno, easily get to enter university even when their exams results are no good, while non bumiputera students with very good result can't get in. the list goes on and on. you just go and read the comments at the malaysian insider there and you'll see.
oh how the DPM can tell a lie with a straight face in front of thousands of people. he made that remark during his address at the government christmas open house yesterday…. and it was in response to rev eu hong seng's address at the CFM (christian federation of malaysia) christmas tea parth. well actually no… he made that remark only after the extremist group, perkasa spoke up that christians should not question article 153.
it was perkasa's secretary general, syed hasan who so arrogantly (and stupidly!!!) said that christians should not question article 153. why not? article 153 in the constitution affect everybody and everybody has a right to comment on it. to make matters worst, he invoke the may 13 ghost! and that was not all… worst… his brain suddenly dried up and he came out with the lame, childish argument of "if you don't like it here, you can leave." this was what he said:
see"? what an idiot!!
the fact is that article 153 protects the rights of everyone, thus everyone has the rights to comment on it… but article 153 had been twisted by umnoputera when they added in the special privileges lah, the social contract lah, the ketuanan melayu lah.
the OK (otak kering) syed hasan have to be taught by constitutional expert, prof. abdul aziz that article 153 is meant for everyone as it seek to be fair to ALL – not only malays. prof aziz also rightfully pointed out that rev. eu did not question the existence of article 153 but in fact, he was for article 153 and he was merely questioning the practise of article 153… which was what umno had not been pracitsing it fairly for 52 years!!
methink the DPM also suddenly become OK during his speech at the christmas open house when he said nobody are side-lined. so much had been happening all round, all years, that we can see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears and read with our eyes that non bumiputera are side-lined… it's so obvious lah, as if he can't see that? oh i forgot, he's OK so he can't see that. oh and btw, he is malay first and malaysian second, so don't you think he will favour malays first… and he had the guts to say nobody are side-lined!
thanks for giving me the best christmas joke in 2011, mr malay DPM!

Christmas Day, 1914
My dear sister Janet,
It is 2:00 in the morning and most of our men are asleep in their dugouts—yet I could not sleep myself before writing to you of the wonderful events of Christmas Eve. In truth, what happened seems almost like a fairy tale, and if I hadn't been through it myself, I would scarce believe it. Just imagine: While you and the family sang carols before the fire there in London, I did the same with enemy soldiers here on the battlefields of France!
As I wrote before, there has been little serious fighting of late. The first battles of the war left so many dead that both sides have held back until replacements could come from home. So we have mostly stayed in our trenches and waited.
But what a terrible waiting it has been! Knowing that any moment an artillery shell might land and explode beside us in the trench, killing or maiming several men. And in daylight not daring to lift our heads above ground, for fear of a sniper's bullet.
And the rain—it has fallen almost daily. Of course, it collects right in our trenches, where we must bail it out with pots and pans. And with the rain has come mud—a good foot or more deep. It splatters and cakes everything, and constantly sucks at our boots. One new recruit got his feet stuck in it, and then his hands too when he tried to get out—just like in that American story of the tar baby!
Through all this, we couldn't help feeling curious about the German soldiers across the way. After all, they faced the same dangers we did, and slogged about in the same muck. What's more, their first trench was only 50 yards from ours. Between us lay No Man's Land, bordered on both sides by barbed wire—yet they were close enough we sometimes heard their voices.
Of course, we hated them when they killed our friends. But other times, we joked about them and almost felt we had something in common. And now it seems they felt the same.
Just yesterday morning—Christmas Eve Day—we had our first good freeze. Cold as we were, we welcomed it, because at least the mud froze solid. Everything was tinged white with frost, while a bright sun shone over all. Perfect Christmas weather.
During the day, there was little shelling or rifle fire from either side. And as darkness fell on our Christmas Eve, the shooting stopped entirely. Our first complete silence in months! We hoped it might promise a peaceful holiday, but we didn't count on it. We'd been told the Germans might attack and try to catch us off guard.
I went to the dugout to rest, and lying on my cot, I must have drifted asleep. All at once my friend John was shaking me awake, saying, "Come and see! See what the Germans are doing!" I grabbed my rifle, stumbled out into the trench, and stuck my head cautiously above the sandbags.
I never hope to see a stranger and more lovely sight. Clusters of tiny lights were shining all along the German line, left and right as far as the eye could see.
"What is it?" I asked in bewilderment, and John answered, "Christmas trees!"
And so it was. The Germans had placed Christmas trees in front of their trenches, lit by candle or lantern like beacons of good will.
And then we heard their voices raised in song.
Stille nacht, heilige nacht . . . .
This carol may not yet be familiar to us in Britain, but John knew it and translated: "Silent night, holy night." I've never heard one lovelier—or more meaningful, in that quiet, clear night, its dark softened by a first-quarter moon.
When the song finished, the men in our trenches applauded. Yes, British soldiers applauding Germans! Then one of our own men started singing, and we all joined in.
The first Nowell, the angel did say . . . .
In truth, we sounded not nearly as good as the Germans, with their fine harmonies. But they responded with enthusiastic applause of their own and then began another.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum . . . .
Then we replied.
O come all ye faithful . . . .
But this time they joined in, singing the same words in Latin.
Adeste fideles . . . .
British and German harmonizing across No Man's Land! I would have thought nothing could be more amazing—but what came next was more so.
"English, come over!" we heard one of them shout. "You no shoot, we no shoot."
There in the trenches, we looked at each other in bewilderment. Then one of us shouted jokingly, "You come over here."
To our astonishment, we saw two figures rise from the trench, climb over their barbed wire, and advance unprotected across No Man's Land. One of them called, "Send officer to talk."
I saw one of our men lift his rifle to the ready, and no doubt others did the same—but our captain called out, "Hold your fire." Then he climbed out and went to meet the Germans halfway. We heard them talking, and a few minutes later, the captain came back with a German cigar in his mouth!
"We've agreed there will be no shooting before midnight tomorrow," he announced. "But sentries are to remain on duty, and the rest of you, stay alert."
Across the way, we could make out groups of two or three men starting out of trenches and coming toward us. Then some of us were climbing out too, and in minutes more, there we were in No Man's Land, over a hundred soldiers and officers of each side, shaking hands with men we'd been trying to kill just hours earlier!
Before long a bonfire was built, and around it we mingled—British khaki and German grey. I must say, the Germans were the better dressed, with fresh uniforms for the holiday.
Only a couple of our men knew German, but more of the Germans knew English. I asked one of them why that was.
"Because many have worked in England!" he said. "Before all this, I was a waiter at the Hotel Cecil. Perhaps I waited on your table!"
"Perhaps you did!" I said, laughing.
He told me he had a girlfriend in London and that the war had interrupted their plans for marriage. I told him, "Don't worry. We'll have you beat by Easter, then you can come back and marry the girl."
He laughed at that. Then he asked if I'd send her a postcard he'd give me later, and I promised I would.
Another German had been a porter at Victoria Station. He showed me a picture of his family back in Munich. His eldest sister was so lovely, I said I should like to meet her someday. He beamed and said he would like that very much and gave me his family's address.
Even those who could not converse could still exchange gifts—our cigarettes for their cigars, our tea for their coffee, our corned beef for their sausage. Badges and buttons from uniforms changed owners, and one of our lads walked off with the infamous spiked helmet! I myself traded a jackknife for a leather equipment belt—a fine souvenir to show when I get home.
Newspapers too changed hands, and the Germans howled with laughter at ours. They assured us that France was finished and Russia nearly beaten too. We told them that was nonsense, and one of them said, "Well, you believe your newspapers and we'll believe ours."
Clearly they are lied to—yet after meeting these men, I wonder how truthful our own newspapers have been. These are not the "savage barbarians" we've read so much about. They are men with homes and families, hopes and fears, principles and, yes, love of country. In other words, men like ourselves. Why are we led to believe otherwise?
As it grew late, a few more songs were traded around the fire, and then all joined in for—I am not lying to you—"Auld Lang Syne." Then we parted with promises to meet again tomorrow, and even some talk of a football match.
I was just starting back to the trenches when an older German clutched my arm. "My God," he said, "why cannot we have peace and all go home?"
I told him gently, "That you must ask your emperor."
He looked at me then, searchingly. "Perhaps, my friend. But also we must ask our hearts."
And so, dear sister, tell me, has there ever been such a Christmas Eve in all history? And what does it all mean, this impossible befriending of enemies?
For the fighting here, of course, it means regrettably little. Decent fellows those soldiers may be, but they follow orders and we do the same. Besides, we are here to stop their army and send it home, and never could we shirk that duty.
Still, one cannot help imagine what would happen if the spirit shown here were caught by the nations of the world. Of course, disputes must always arise. But what if our leaders were to offer well wishes in place of warnings? Songs in place of slurs? Presents in place of reprisals? Would not all war end at once?
All nations say they want peace. Yet on this Christmas morning, I wonder if we want it quite enough.
Your loving brother,

About the Story
The Christmas Truce of 1914 has been called by Arthur Conan Doyle "one human episode amid all the atrocities." It is certainly one of the most remarkable incidents of World War I and perhaps of all military history. Inspiring both popular songs and theater, it has endured as an almost archetypal image of peace.
Starting in some places on Christmas Eve and in others on Christmas Day, the truce covered as much as two-thirds of the British-German front, with French and Belgians involved as well. Thousands of soldiers took part. In most places it lasted at least through Boxing Day (December 26), and in some through mid-January. Perhaps most remarkably, it grew out of no single initiative but sprang up in each place spontaneously and independently.
Unofficial and spotty as the truce was, there have been those convinced it never happened—that the whole thing was made up. Others have believed it happened but that the news was suppressed. Neither is true. Though little was printed in Germany, the truce made headlines for weeks in British newspapers, with published letters and photos from soldiers at the front. In a single issue, the latest rumor of German atrocities might share space with a photo of British and German soldiers crowded together, their caps and helmets exchanged, smiling for the camera.
Historians, on the other hand, have shown less interest in an unofficial outbreak of peace. There has been only one comprehensive study of the incident: Christmas Truce, by Malcolm Brown and Shirley Seaton, Secker & Warburg, London, 1984—a companion volume to the authors' 1981 BBC documentary, Peace in No Man's Land. The book features a large number of first-hand accounts from letters and diaries. Nearly everything described in my fictional letter is drawn from these accounts—though I have heightened the drama somewhat by selecting, arranging, and compressing.
In my letter, I've tried to counteract two popular misconceptions of the truce. One is that only common soldiers took part in it, while officers opposed it. (Few officers opposed it, and many took part.) The other is that neither side wished to return to fighting. (Most soldiers, especially British, French, and Belgian, remained determined to fight and win.)
Sadly, I also had to omit the Christmas Day games of football—or soccer, as called in the U.S.—often falsely associated with the truce. The truth is that the terrain of No Man's Land ruled out formal games—though certainly some soldiers kicked around balls and makeshift substitutes.
Another false idea about the truce was held even by most soldiers who were there: that it was unique in history. Though the Christmas Truce is the greatest example of its kind, informal truces had been a longstanding military tradition. During the American Civil War, for instance, Rebels and Yankees traded tobacco, coffee, and newspapers, fished peacefully on opposite sides of a stream, and even gathered blackberries together. Some degree of fellow feeling had always been common among soldiers sent to battle.
Of course, all that has changed in modern times. Today, soldiers kill at great distances, often with the push of a button and a sighting on a computer screen. Even where soldiers come face to face, their languages and cultures are often so diverse as to make friendly communication unlikely.
No, we should not expect to see another Christmas Truce. Yet still what happened on that Christmas of 1914 may inspire the peacemakers of today—for, now as always, the best time to make peace is long before the armies go to war.

Dungun - Kejadian air pasang dan ombak besar yang melanda sebahagian pantai di negeri ini dilaporkan antara yang terburuk pernah berlaku sejak 50 tahun lalu.
Antara daerah yang teruk dilanda fenomena itu yang dijangka berlarutan sehingga awal Januari depan ialah Dungun dengan hampir sebahagian pesisir Pantai Peranginan Teluk Lipat dihakis ombak besar.
Tinjauan Bernama mendapati bukan sahaja berpuluh-puluh batang pokok Rhu tumbang malah sebahagian jalan utama yang menghubungkan pengguna jalan raya ke sebuah institusi pendidikan dekat sini turut rosak dipukul ombak.
Ombak kuat setinggi lima meter yang memukul pesisir pantai sepanjang tiga kilometer itu meruntuhkan jalan raya berkenaan sehingga memaksa ia ditutup kepada semua kenderaan untuk mengelakkan kejadian tidak diingini berlaku.
Seorang pengusaha kedai makan, Ahmad Fauzi Ismail, 50, berkata, keadaan jalan raya runtuh sikit demi sedikit akibat hakisan itu yang dikesan berlaku sejak empat hari lalu. - BERNAMA

More Malay guys will become gays if more Malay woman keeps on wearing tudong and crazy ass colourful curtain as their clothing. They should dress up more like kpop artis and wear skimppier clothing. Then Malay guy for once can enjoice and feel geli geli for the opposite sex instead of having to choose which colourful gunny sack to choose from. Why do you think all of them crazy for ahmoi?
I think it's time for scholarship's sponsor to screen candidates for gayness during interviews.

Umno Besut kibar bendera negeri separuh tiang?
BESUT, 27 Dis: PAS Besut melahirkan rasa dukacita dengan tindakan Umno bahagian yang mengibarkan bendera negeri separuh tiang sejak lebih seminggu lalu.
Yang Dipertua PAS Besut, Ustaz Wan Azhar Wan Ahmad berkata, tindakan mengibarkan bendera negeri Terengganu separuh tiang di pejabat Umno bahagian Besut itu tidak wajar.
Ini kerana, katanya di saat seluruh rakyat jelata gembira dengan keberangkatan pulang Sultan Terengganu, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin kembali memerintah negeri tindakan tersebut amat dikesali.
"Ini tidak harus berlaku di saat seluruh rakyat negeri ini bergembira dengan kepulangan Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin untuk kembali memerintah Terengganu, setelah menamatkan tempoh pemerintahan baginda selama sepenggal sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong ke 13," katanya.
Menurutnya, Umno BN bersikap hiporkrit apabila melenting marah ketika seorang mahasiswa yang berdemonstrasi bertindak menurunkan gambar Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tetapi membisu berhubung bendera Terengganu dinaikkan separuh tiang itu.
"Saya tidak fikir Ketua Umno Bahagian Besut tidak nampak bendera Terengganu berkibar di separuh tiang di hadapan pejabatnya di tengah-tengah bandar Jerteh dalam tempoh waktu yang agak lama.
"Saya juga tidak terfikir bekas Menteri Besar Terengganu (Idris Jusoh) itu tidak dimaklumkan tentang kepulangan Tuanku Sultan Mizan yang telah kembali memerintah Terengganu," ujarnya.
Katanya, PAS Besut menasihati kepimpinan Umno bahagian agar segera mengembalikan semula bendera negeri Terengganu pada kedudukan asal dengan baik. -HD
Rakyat Malaysia tidak lupa bagaimana kejinya perbuatan sekumpulan ahli-ahli UMNO Terengganu khususnya penyokong bekas Menteri Besar Idris Jusoh memanggil Sultan mereka (ketika itu Yang Dipertuan Agong) dengan panggilan "natang" (binatang).
Apakah pemasangan bendera separuh tiang tersebut adalah penerusan dan manifestasi kederhakaan ahli-ahli UMNO terbabit terhadap Sultan Terengganu?

So many Malaysians, especially the ordinary Malays who do not belong to the Umnoputra Malays, Bumis, non-Malays-and-Bumis have been sidelined under BN.
Racist Umno-led BN government seeks to divide and rule the nation so that it will continue to stay in power.

Ditolak lelaki tak dikenali
GUA MUSANG - Seorang remaja wanita cedera muka apabila terjatuh motosikal yang ditungganginya selepas ditolak seorang lelaki tidak dikenali di Jalan Pulai lama, dekat sini, malam Jumaat lalu.
Kejadian itu berlaku ketika mangsa, Nurul Hidayah Che Su, 18, menunggang seorang diri dalam perjalanan pulang membeli barang keperluan di sebuah kedai di Bandar Baru, Gua Musang.
Beliau yang tinggal di Kampung Simpang Empat Kundur dihampiri seorang lelaki tidak dikenali lalu menolak kepalanya sebelum terjatuh motosikal ditunggangi dan mukanya tersembam dalam selut.
Ketika ditemui di rumahnya, beliau berkata, sebaik berlaku kejadian itu, suspek juga menunggang motosikal seorang diri melarikan diri mengelakkan dikesan orang ramai yang memberi pertolongan.
"Saya tidak ada musuh dengan sesiapapun, tetapi hairan kenapa lelaki tersebut bertindak demikian hingga menyebabkan saya cedera muka selepas tersembam dalam selut di tepi jalan di situ.
"Kejadian tidak jauh dari rumah saya dan secara kebetulannya ada orang ramai melalui kawasan membantu saya menghantar balik ke rumah sebelum keluarga pula menghantar ke Hospital Gua Musang (HGM) untuk mendapat rawatan," katanya.
Nurul Hidayah berkata, selepas itu pula beliau ke Ibu Pejabat Daerah (IPD) Gua Musang untuk membuat laporan polis berhubung kejadian itu, tetapi yang sukarnya kerana tidak mengenali lelaki terbabit.
Beliau berkata, suspek menolak kepalanya dengan kuat hingga gagal mengawal motosikal yang ditunggangi sebelum terbalik di bahu jalan berhampiran simpang masuk ke Taman Tropika.
"Saya langsung tidak sempat melihat lelaki terbabit yang datang dari arah belakang kerana berlaku dalam keadaan gelap dan cepat dia melarikan diri ke simpang empat berkenaan," katanya.
Katanya, dia juga tidak tahu motif sebenar lelaki terbabit bertindak demikian hingga membawa kecederaan kepada mukanya dan mahu polis menyiasat perkara itu. -SH

Malaysia, realitinya, memiliki berbilang etnik, bahasa, ugama, gaya-hidup, dll. Ini, mahu atau tidak, sebuah realiti kompleks yang harus kita akui. Dengan beragam latar belakang ini, tentu mudah mengundang perbezaan dalam masharakat. Walau bagaimanapun, semua yang berbeza ini tetap saja memerlukan pentas untuk hidup bersama. Kerana itu, negara diperlukan, sebagai wadah buat semua. Namun, bagaimana pula negara ini harus bersikap dalam soal keragaman latar belakang (juga keragaman pandangan-alam) ini? Apakah negara harus dibiar untuk menguasai moral warga, seluruhnya, tanpa tersisa untuk ruang peribadi sekalipun? Atau, ada batas antara ruang peribadi dengan ruang awam? Selain itu, bagaimana pula peranan masharakat warga (civil society) dalam mengimbangi antara wilayah negara dengan wilayah masharakat tersebut?
Justeru, melihat ke hadapan, maka adalah penting untuk mewacanakan kembali persoalan antara fungsi negara, masharakat warga dan moral ini. Tanpa ada usaha untuk menjernihkan persoalan ini, maka diyakini masharakat-kompleks kita ini akan terus berada dalam kekaburan sistem-bersama. Diam-diam, dalam kekaburan inilah totalitarianisme akan mengambil-alih, sekaligus menenggelamkan batas intersubjektiviti antara masharakat dan negara. Kesannya, psikologi massa yang bersifat totalitarian ini bukan semata mengubah seluruh aktiviti hidup individu; tapi, seperti tegas Hannah Arendt, turut mengubah secara sekata apa yang masharakat fikirkan (malah, rasakan!) dalam benak mereka. Akhirnya, lahirlah apa yang disebut sebagai "the banality of evil"; hingga memunculkan manusia-manusia Eichmann yang baru.
Sehubungan dengan itu, Diskopi sebagai perkumpulan yang cintakan negara, cintakan masharakat, cintakan apa yang dinamakan sebagai wacana sehat, menganjurkan sebuah perbincangan "santai tapi serius" berkenaan persoalan menarik ini. Butirannya adalah:
Tajuk Wacana: Negara, Masharakat Warga dan Moral — Sejauh mana tugas negara dalam soal moral
Dengan itu, Diskopi menjemput semua warga yang "santai tapi serius" untuk turut sama menyumbang fikiran dalam wacana ini. Mungkin saja, sumbangan fikiran dari para audien, itu lebih penting dari panelis. Santai bermakna, hadhirin harus duduk bersila. Tapi wacana tetap dijamin serius.
