Watch out for those belonging to that extremist group who wanted to go after every Malaysian they see.

And some of the Padang folks still throw stones at our planes.The level of anti-Malaysia sentiments amongst Indonesians are unbelievably high... my friend who is now at Ground Zero in Padang as a volunteer was wearing a Malaysian Red Cross jacket had to remove it on advice by IRC colleagues and put on an IRC T-shirt instead...

I agree... esp the anti-Chinese there. Remember some years ago Chinese esp women are being brutally raped and killed. An Indonesian lady friend who was married to a Chinese PR then had to hire a dozen army personnels as bodyguards to guard her family and house.

And personally a maid I hired 3 years ago accidently broke a glass and immediately "MAMPUS CINA MAMPUS MALAYSIA" came out from her mouth. She was sacked immediately... not because of breaking the glass ofcoz!

To some people, the world revolves around their country... even some M'sians also think M'sia is the world. It's heartening to know the Padang Chinese community is joining in the efforts but I find it strange when I read in the paper. Padang had only 2-3 excavator but the Chinese comm can pool in 13 units. :confused:

Lately, there were a lot of natural disasters happened around us, it started off with earthquake & tsunami at Samoa Island followed by Padang earthquake, tropical storm Ketsana, typhoon Parma & typhoon Melor slammed Philippines & Japan. Worst of all, typhoon Parma u-turn and slammed northern Philippines this morning again. Yesterday, earthquake hit Vanuatu and triggered tsunami alarm but fortunately it was called off. The magnitudes of these disasters are getting stronger. Other countries like Taiwan, Southern part of China and Vietnam were also affected by these super typhoons.

Thinking about it, we are the lucky bunch and still able to sit in front of computer comfortably blogging about our daily life. We got to be thankful born in this bless land. Meanwhile, if you are able, please give to those who suffer. :)

Frankly, whatever message it is going to be, it is nothing much we can do as a human being. All we can do it to help the needy. :) :)

I think I read somewhere that there was a prophecy by Nostradamus that all be go kaput by 2012 - even before we have to vote in the next GE. Darn!

Read http://www.charismamag.com/index.php/prophetic-insight/23458-will-the-world-end-in-2012 featured in History Channel "Nostradamus:2012".

Start counting the seconds and repent ye all sinners! For all those foolish politicians who want to amass big bucks, you will be like the rest of us when the time comes. Prophetic indeed. Me I will still watch CNN and wait for the next prophecy.
