Can CSM Do No Wrong?




Daphne's tweet got me thinking what I felt was a very good question.

The way I see it, as long as he remains in the limelight, he will continue to do good.

We have seen how the other politicians are where as soon as the spotlight is no longer on them, they slack off.

Over the last decade of two, our political apathy has given our incumbent politicians a free pass to 为非作歹. 一手遮天.

During the election period, when the media spotlight was on each and every one of them, you see how they are so on the ball doing this and that and this for the people.

Now that the media attention has faded, do you still see them as goodie as before?

For the case of Chen Show Mao, the media attention is still very much on him, not from the mainstream media but from his own updates on Facebook. Perhaps that is the very fuel that keeps him going and as far as I am concerned, I say he is doing a great job at it.

Keep it up and come the next election, he will get to keep his seat.

Well done, so far. :)

It Ended At 51



Called home yesterday only to find out from dad that Uncle Tay passed away.

This is a guy who lived his life to the fullest. An old chap with an effervescence personality.

He was 80 and married for 51 years.

Sad to see him go. Aunt Tay is going to be so lonely and the house so quiet after this. :(

Goodbye Uncle Tay.

Bloop Bloop Bloop


This was so tragic that it was actually very funny.

Had they said that they were launching their new submarine, they then wouldn't need to scoop up such a big piece of disaster crap. If only they learn this from the Royal Malaysian Navy earlier.

At 17 million RMB for a ship that can't even float, one can't help but smell the reeks of cut corners and grey area accounting. A friend quipped that the officials should have been on board the ship when it launch so that they can all go down together.

Do watch the video. Very tragically funny. I hope nobody got hurt though.

I only have 2 words to describe this.

Gua gua...........

Steven Paul Jobs 1955 - 2011


Though I am not a fan boy of Apple, one cannot deny the remarkable achievements that this man has contributed to modern consumer technology.

I have had a few Apple products in my time ranging from the Apple ][e to iPod and then the iPad.

I remember the era where we use to punch a hole on the opposite edge of the 5-1/4-inch floppy just so we can use the other side of the diskette.

Commands like PR#6 (boot from floppy), PR#3 (activate printer), PR#2 (active Software Automated Mouth (SAM)) seemed like it was only yesterday.

I remember my first use of the mouse on the Macintosh and how much grief it gave me as I run out of table top to move the mouse.

Ah. Memories.

It was a time when Apple was heading towards ruin when Steve Jobs single-handedly turned it around into one of the greatest company in modern history.

The Lisa, Apple III, Apple II GS all tanked and thank goodness for iMac (the very first of the "i" series) that turned the company around. It was a genius product where you just need to get the iFruit out of the box, plug in the power and the telephone socket and you are good to go.

Just.Like.That.

I remember one of the pet peeves of the iMac is that it eliminated the 3.5" floppy drive and introduced the LS-120 mb drive instead. That, in the end, was my impression of Steve Jobs and subsequent Apple products. Great idea of a product BUT there will be that one stark thing missing deliberately to self-sabotage what could have been the PERFECT product. One that would kill all competition in a single blow.

I remembered my first iPod (5th Gen). How I loved it and at the same time how it drove me nuts coz it does not come with a FM receiver.

I also remember how everyone was swooning over the first iPhone only to have to bitch about the lack of MMS and copy & paste.

Why? Why always stop a step short of reaching Gadget Nirvana? Why?

Still, life goes on when the bitching stops eventually.

Speaking of life going on. Steve Jobs' legacy will go on too hereon.

Rest In Peace
Steven Paul Jobs
