Now, You Could Literally Throw Away The Rukunnegara Easily

Remember that I had blogged about printing the Rukunnegara on products such as condoms and tampons here?



Well, fast forward 5 months later, it was brought up yet again.



You know that we are also one of the mass-producers of a very rubbery thing. Wonder if it will be on it also? ;)

Now, not only we have figuratively thrown away our Rukunnegara (i.e. the 3-5th lines), we could also throw them away literally.

For Some Eunuchs, Two 'Things' Are Already Very Precious To Them.

Happy Family Essay, anyone?

Sandwiched In Between?

Up north, a new airport has opened and the coup will finally be over soon.

Down south, the tiny little red dot has already and will put anyone in shame.

In the middle? Neh, we are still disputing whether 30% has been achieved, who should apologise or not, who is the 'pendatang', who is robbing someone else's money, who is not getting the gravy from the train, what weapon to wave at the general assembly (compare it to the Labour conference here), who is [insert whatever you could think of].

And I don't want to go further up north or further north-west. Not to mention the far east.

The world is changing. Rapidly. Can we still catch up?

General Election Imminent Come End 2007/Early 2008

It's official? Or as expected? Look at these headlines from theSun and MKini:



And Utusan Malaysia boldly puts it as an obvious sign that GE is imminent:




Pilihan raya umum 2007? -- MT UMNO tangguh pemilihan pucuk pimpinan parti


Oleh Aznan Bakar, Fauzi Jaafar dan Hamden Ramli

KUALA LUMPUR 28 Sept. – Pilihan raya umum dijangka diadakan akhir tahun depan atau awal 2008. Ramalan itu dibuat setelah Majlis Tertinggi (MT) UMNO hari ini melanjutkan tempoh pemilihan pucuk pimpinan parti itu kepada 18 bulan daripada September 2007, bagi memberi laluan pilihan raya umum ke-12 diadakan terlebih dahulu.

Pemilihan - tiga tahun sekali - UMNO yang lepas berlangsung pada 23 September 2004.

Undang-undang negara menetapkan pilihan raya umum diadakan dalam tempoh lima tahun kecuali jika Parlimen dibubarkan lebih awal. Pilihan raya lalu ialah pada 21 Mac 2004. Ini bermakna mandat kerajaan akan berakhir pada Mac 2009.

Sementara setelah pelanjutan 18 bulan itu, mandat anggota MT juga akan berakhir pada Mac 2009.

Who announced it?

Presiden UMNO, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ketika mengumumkan perkara itu berkata, ia telah diputuskan oleh MT bagi memberi ruang kepada parti itu untuk memberi tumpuan kepada pilihan raya.

Katanya, dengan itu UMNO boleh memfokuskan kepada usaha-usaha meningkatkan pembangunan negara serta yang berkait rapat dengan kepentingan rakyat.

Tindakan tersebut juga katanya, merupakan satu prosedur dan juga dasar parti selama ini yang terbukti telah memberi kebaikan kepada ahli.

‘‘Prosedur dan dasar parti ini telah dilaksanakan sebanyak dua kali dan telah terbukti dapat memberi kebaikan kepada parti.

‘‘Ini juga untuk membolehkan parti menumpukan kepada hal-hal berkaitan dengan menjayakan pembangunan negara dan juga pembangunan projek-projek yang telah dilaksanakan demi kepentingan rakyat,’’ katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat MT UMNO di sini.

Whodunnit?

Sebelum ini Pergerakan Pemuda UMNO telah mencadangkan supaya pemilihan pucuk pimpinan parti yang dijadualkan tahun depan ditunda sehingga selesai pilihan raya umum.

Cadangan itu dibangkitkan oleh Naib Ketua Pemuda UMNO, Khairy Jamaluddin kerana bimbang pemilihan yang dilakukan sebelum pilihan raya boleh mencetuskan perpecahan di antara pemimpin dan penyokong parti.

‘‘Kita bimbang kekuatan parti UMNO akan goyah kerana macam-macam boleh berlaku jika pertandingan dilakukan sebelum pilihan raya umum ekoran kekecewaan calon yang kalah boleh mempengaruhi pengikutnya,’’ kata Khairy.

Berdasarkan Perlembagaan UMNO, pemilihan parti boleh ditangguhkan selama 18 bulan.

Mengikut kelaziman pemilihan MT tidak diadakan tepat pada tempoh 18 bulan, dan pilihan raya umum juga tidak diadakan genap lima tahun.

If you are still sleeping not in the know of who the de facto Prime Minister is, please slap yourself awake a few times now.

Soon we will see a bustle in the Malaysian blogosphere very soon. But will the incumbent embrace it?

Make sure you know how to make the right informed choice later. ;)

Flip-Flop-F**k: No Teh Tarik and Roti Canai In Space After All

UPDATED: Just look at what the French can do...



Doctors fly high for first ever operation in zero gravity

BORDEAUX, France (AFP) - French doctors are carrying out the world's first ever operation on a human in zero-gravity, using a specially-adapted aircraft to simulate conditions in space.

The team of surgeons and anaesthetists took off from Bordeaux airport in southwest France on Wednesday for a three-hour journey to remove a benign tumour from the fore-arm of a volunteer.

The experiment is part of a programme -- on course for completion next year with backing from the European Space Agency (ESA) -- to develop techniques for performing robotic surgery aboard the International Space Station or a future Moon base.

"The operation will pose no risk to the patient.

Its aim is to prove the effectiveness of new surgical and anaesthetic techniques carried out in conditions of weightlessness," according to a statement from Bordeaux University Hospital, which provided the medical team.

"This phase is essential before we can move ahead with developing the next stage when we will operate with a robot remotely controlled from the ground by satellite," it said.

The ultimate muthaf**ka of all 'Cakap Tak Serupa Bikins' (pardon the vulgarity, Doc Mave).

First, the whole world was laughing at us when Jonathan Kent of the BBC reported that we're planning a gluttony feast in space.



Then, things started to die down when only the roti canai banjir can go in space.



Then the world community had their Malaysian laughter dose again when we still insisted on having a tea party in zero gravity.



And just yesterday, the biggest flip-flop-f**k to date. None of the cuisines are going to space after all.



Like what some would say to their children, I don't know whether to laugh or cry upon hearing this news.

Thank you all you tax-payers, for paying the money for MARDI to do the fruitless research of bringing these cuisines in space.

Harapkan Pagar, Pagar Makan Padi

Besides being famous for voyuerism, our Royally dudes have acquired a new favourite pastime- becoming a snatch thief! From Sinchew Daily and theSun:

Cop who steals, too

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have detained a constable who has been with the force for two years on suspicion of commiting snatch theft.

The 25-year-old shocked the force with the double life he had been leading for the past one year. He is believed to be responsible for 40 snatch thefts in the city.

Confirming the arrest to Sin Chew Daily, city deputy CPO Datuk Ahmad Baharin Idrus said police are not taking the case lightly and are conducting a thorough investigation.

He said police have suspended the constable and have obtained an order to further remand him to facilitate investigation.

"Police will investigate the case from various angles, including whether others are involved. We will not let anyone off the hook," Ahmad Baharin said.

It is learnt that the constable went astray just a year after joining the force.

According to the report, the constable was picked up last Friday after a chase in an alley on Jalan Silang by a team from the anticrime unit of the city police headquarters.

Police realised the policeman's identity only when they found a police badge on him.

They were shocked that the suspect they had been tracking for months was one of their own.

It is learnt that once he is off-duty, the constable, who is with the city police headquarters, would prowl the Golden Triangle, Jalan Raja Laut and Jalan Silang on a motorcycle, looking for potential victims.

Don't Shoot The Messenger: Germany's Un-dating Agency

Tired of long, dragging, unsettled relationships? Well, good news! Head over to Germany then! From Beebs:



Agency makes breaking up easier

A German businessman has set up a "separation agency" - a service to inform unsuspecting spouses and lovers their partners no longer want them.

Bernd Dressler will deliver the bad news - for those too scared to do it themselves - for 20 euros (£13) by phone, or for 50 euros (£33) in person.

The efficiency and directness of Mr Dressler's manner has earned him the nickname The Terminator.

The 52-year-old compares his company to a dating agency but "in reverse".

'Only the messenger'

"We have had dating agencies for 30 years. If you want to have a new partnership then you have to quit your previous one.

"I think it's the same market - just in reverse," Mr Dressler told the BBC.

The message can be delivered in a "sympathetic or direct manner". Mr Dressler said that most of his clients do not want any further contact with their ex-partner.

The client is asked to provide three reasons why they want to terminate the relationship - these are then passed on by the agency to the former lover.

"The time is right for this service. Many clients are unhappy in their partnerships and they want to end it in a neutral way," Mr Dressler said.

The former insurance manager said he has been fortunate never to have witnessed any extreme emotional reactions.

"I am only the messenger," he said.

50 Years As A Nation: How Much Do We Know Each Other's Culture?

Not sure how much one can rely on this story, knowing the nature of twisting and spinning facts the MSM could be (in this case-to portray that the BN component parties as a champion for racial harmony and understanding), let's have a look at this story:



Despite the undecisiveness of Ian McIntyre in using the words of 'tanglung' and 'lantern'(tanglung is not an English word but he did not put inverted commas but put it instead for 'lantern'),looking at the bigger picture of the story, let me quote:

For many folk in this Kelantan town, the tanglung festival was something unheard of.


and

For office workers Suria Yusof, 22, and Syima Sidek, 18, it was a unique experience seeing the tanglung celebrations of the first time.

True enough. For some of us, coming to 50 years as a nation, 'tanglung' is something still unheard of, 'nasi kandar' is an alien food to some (yes, I had encountered a bimbo model someone not knowing that) and 'murukku' is an Indian tree name.

I had some personal experience while being posted as a temp teacher (yeah, babbeee...Engrish summore) in a Malay-populated rural village in the midst of an urban town. I still remembered some of the students pointing at me saying 'Cina! Cina!', puzzled with the yellow-skinned looks of a bloke whom they may met for the first time ever, despite there is such a thing called TV.

All these make us ponder on how well do we know each other's culture despite being portrayed as a 'Truly Asian' country on tourism billboards and of course, coming towards 50 years old of a nation.

Now you wonder why playing the race card like one particular community robbing all the poor's money of another community, always sells when trying to fish for votes.

I shed a tear for Malaysia.

Pak Lah Needs My Help

I was a bit perasan as I saw this piece of news:



Okay, the Man has asked for my help. As I would always love to 'work with him' and to 'tell him the truth' and I don't 'question his noble intentions and sincerety' and no doubt he is 'in control' and he is 'still the Prime Minister', so here's my attempt:

Perhaps he could first listen to academicians like Dr. Azmi Sharom and those Frightened Malaysians Abroad for instance?

Perhaps he could next listen to non-academician, education enthusiasts like Tony and Kian Ming?

Perhaps mob incidents do not happen here?

Perhaps mob incidents still happen here but the VC will not claim the mobs as 'singing'?

Perhaps students here are free to set up any clubs and societies they like in their campus?

Perhaps students here are not switched off their campus' electricity to force them to vote?

Perhaps students here were not offered free hotel stays in campus elections?

Perhaps there are no VCDs circulating the campus, bad-mouthing certain parties?

Perhaps there are no anti-Semitic brain-washing workshops here?

Perhaps anti-Semitic remarks are not even tolerated here?

Perhaps racist lecturers and lecturers who come out with racist remarks are sacked straight-away ?

[For a bigger picture above, read here]

Perhaps the student press here are free and not biased?

Perhaps meritocracy works best here?

Perhaps students here are not spoon-fed but critical thinking is encouraged instead?

Perhaps students here were not told to 'concentrate in getting CGPA 4.0 and stay the hell out of socio-politics'?

Perhaps students (and lecturers) were not forced to sign documents pledging support to the government?

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps...

Many maybes, many perhaps, many more mayhaps...


Oh, there's your SIL you can always ask first if you want to know.

Voyeuring Cops

The cop (and the uniform) has always been associated with sexual fetishes. Now, are they joining in the fun by voyeurism?

First, we had the infamous Squatgate video. Next: Nekkidfondlegate.



Remember kids, always ERASE your video after syiok doing it and syiok watching it again. You'll never know how it will end up...;)

In another case pertaining to mobile phone-savvy cops, a cop has embraced the ICT by using the mobile phone to keng sou (talk over matters in a triad 'persuasive' way).

Najib Sends Peter Chin As Proxy to Kau Tim TARRC

Just when you thought that the idea had died down, someone whose name only appears in the media once in a blue moon (he did not even appear when there's haze this year), is going to be a proxy for Najib to England to kau tim the Bricken-watever TARRC. From The Star:



I tot beli jet, kau tim liau? No?

Syioknye, jeleslah, anoder lawatan sambil belajar to England. How I'd wish for a tax-payers-sponsored return trip to home now...

The Children of Men: "7 Years After 2020, Kuala Lumpur Will Be Up In Ashes"

The title is fictional lah, of course! 7 years after Vision 2020, Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur will be.....ah, you make the prediction yourself.

Warning: Plot spoilers ahead.

What I'm talking about here is about the film The Children of Men which again, like every Friday, I went to catch it. And yes, Kuala Lumpur was featured in a flash and it was up in ashes in 2027. Well, ALL major cities around the world are up in ashes in the film, except Britain (to a lesser extent). It even secured the Statue of David in one of the mansions in the midst of war and terrorism.

The movie created quite a hype in the recent Venice Film Festival, well, of course with some heavyweight like Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban's director, Alfonso Cuaron not only directing it this time, but also writing the screenplay. This film could be an Oscar hopeful also. Well, almost all the Autumn/Winter films would be one themselves.

To start off as usual, here's the movie poster:



And here's the movie synopsis, from Wikipedia:

Set in 2027 where no human child has been born for 18 years and science is at a loss to explain why, Children of Men envisages a world that's fallen into anarchy and chaos as humankind faces the threat of its own extinction. This threat is made all the more real with the death of the world's youngest citizen. The discovery of a miraculously pregnant woman named Kee leads Theo Faron, a disillusioned ex-activist turned bureaucrat, to undertake a journey to ensure the safety of the woman - a journey where he will face his demons and try to restore faith in the future of humanity.


And here's the trailer (caution-partial nudity in a scene would be expected):



The film is actually another major adaptation from a novel (by P.D.James) this year, besides Da Vinci Code of course. Here's the book cover and you can read more about the book here.



Not sure when it will be shown in Malaysia but will only be shown in the States on Christmas Day (suckers!!!). Wonder when is Swifty getting a chance to watch it in Aussie.

In 5 words, I would simply describe the film as:

Baby miracle in war-torn Britain.

Yes. The storyline is pretty straightforward although I couldn't get some of the roles (like Julian Moore as a terrorist?).

Cities burn. People infertile. No children born for about 2 decades. Someone got pregnant. Man protects mother. War. Terrorism. Bang bang. Mother saved. Baby born. Escaped in ship. Human Project. The end.

Displaying mainly a British cast, with Julianne Moore's character killed off within half an hour of the film, the film is all about Clive Owen. Hope that he is not heading towards the Tom Kulus-like self-monopoly films. This ex-James Bond hopeful displayed a magnificient performance and stole the show with his emotional rise to the protagonist of the world. Another notable one is Claire-Hope Ashitey who played Kee, the pregnant mother.

Beside the casts, the war-torn backdrop of the film graced the film magnificently. Although it started off a bit slow and you would expect the mother to strip naked to show Clive Owen her boobs pregnant stomach, the last 15 minutes of the film towards the end was intense and not to be missed, although I'm not a fan of war films. It must be hard to have a second take for this scene and there was even a point where mud got splashed onto the camera lens but filming continued and was not edited out.

Here are some of the scenes from the film, sourced from Rotten Tomatoes:

What? You have been shooting blanks all the time? Well, which man now isn't?

Hey, I'm sterile. So. Are. You. Neh-neh.

Wah, look, a baby. Never seen a baby for 18 years already!

Did I tell you that your character will be killed off 5 minutes later? Ha! Ha!

What? You- a terrorist?

Overall, I would give the film a 8/10 rating.

Read all about the film from IMDB, Wikipedia and Rotten Tomatoes.

From theSun:

The Nazri exit mystery
Nazri is not one to run away from a good fight or an opportunity to disparage members of the Opposition, especially Kit Siang.

by Zainon Ahmad

QUITE a few MPs are still speculating on why Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz left the Dewan Rakyat on Monday without completing his 80-page roundup of the general debate on Budget 2007.

He did not leave in a huff and neither was there anger on his face. In fact he even smiled at a few BN backbenchers as he made his way out of the House, leaving almost everyone quite nonplussed by his behaviour.

In fact DAP MPs felt quite insulted by Nazri's turning his back on them after doggedly reading his speech at breakneck speed, seemingly oblivious to their requests for penjelasan (clarification) on his replies relating to, among other things, the tsunami fund, the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the role of Umno Youth deputy leader Khairy Jamaludin.

Others, especially BN MPs, were quite annoyed because ­ even though the minister said he would give his speech to those who wanted them ­ much of the responses to the queries they made would not be recorded in the Hansard.

There was pandemonium and complete bedlam as everyone spoke at the same time ­ Nazri reading his speech with DAP MPs shouting for penjelasan and making loud remarks that "he is out of control", BN backbenchers shouting back at the oppositionists to keluar and deputy speaker Datuk Lim Si Cheng shouting cukuplah, cukuplah as he strove to restore order.

When order returned, things started getting out of hand again when Nazri was arguing with Fong Po Kuan (DAP-Batu Gajah) over the use of such unparliamentary words such as kurang ajar and pekak. Lim then called for everyone's cooperation to maintain order in the House or he was going to limit the time for the minister's reply.

When Fong said it was fine with her, Nazri said "if you want me to stop, I'll stop. I'll stop. I'll stop now". The deputy speaker said Nazri should finish his speech and asked for the number of pages he had left.

When Nazri told him 60, Lim asked whether half an hour would be sufficient.

Nazri: I can finish now.

Lim: Can you finish in half an hour? I leave it to you. Can you finish it in half an hour?

Nazri: Sekarang boleh habis.

Lim: It's up to you.

Nazri: Mr Speaker, since my speech is very long and since it will be distributed to those interested, I now end my rounding up. Thank you.

Lim: Sudah habis? Baik.


Why did Nazri do what he did? Was he hounded out of the Dewan by Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang and his band of 11 DAP men and women who were plainly quite irritated and angry with Nazri for ignoring their pleas for clarification? Surely not. Nazri is not one to run away from a good fight or an opportunity to disparage members of the Opposition, especially Kit Siang. In fact he is known to have emerged unscathed from the many verbal scrapes, in the Dewan Rakyat as well as outside.

Did he feel he was under pressure because he was pressed for time or was he peeved with deputy speaker Lim harassing him by asking him if he could finish in half an hour? All these were speculated upon by some MPs in the comfort of their Members Lounge. Yet some others offered even more bizarre and outrageous explanations for Nazri's behaviour that day.

They all agree that it could not be due to his being deluged with requests for clarification because others too, especially Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak who began his rounding up speech when the Dewan sat again after lunch, had to put up with countless requests for clarification. It was the normal thing.

Others agreed with Fong's assumption that Nazri had to cut short his delivery to give his colleagues from the PM's Department, Deputy Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Suliman and parliamentary secretary Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim, time to complete their rounding up by lunch time so that Najib could start his at 2.30.

In fact Fong said so to Najib even before he could start his speech. After the deputy prime minister refused to give in to her repeated requests for penjelasan, she shouted in her shrill voice and in English: "Is the whole parliament to suit the time of the deputy prime minister?"

She sat down only after the uproar died down and only after she managed to shout above the din that "hopefully what happened today would not be repeated".

Najib took about half an hour and was followed by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy. Most ministers turned up to respond to the points raised about their ministries during the debate.

The 31 ministries managed to complete their responses by around midnight on Thursday ­ the last day of the meeting. The Supply Bill 2007 or Budget 2007 will be scrutinised further at committee stage when the Dewan Rakyat, adjourning for Ramadan, reconvenes in November.

Among the thoughts that MPs returning to their constituencies will take with them will be Nazri's use of "your mentor" a euphemism for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, whenever he was involved in an altercation with Karpal Singh (DAPBukit Gelugor). Another was linking the term dictatorship with the former PM.

This came about on Tuesday, when Nazri, explaining why Abdullah was being talked about as losing control, said it was because people could speak freely now.

"During the past administration, it was a bit of a dictatorship, people were not free," he said.

Related to this, like children in a little kindergarden, the MPs needs to be reminded to hold their tongues and to Mind Your Language.

Oh, did I tell you that Yes, Minister is one of their favourite British comedy series also? (I know that Xpyre likes that too lar!)

Some C&P from theSun:

Yes, Minister! Our councils are truly unique

This is not a question of not having the courage or being afraid to hold municipal council elections. What is important is whether the present municipal administrative system is effective in serving the ratepayers well. Malaysia has a unique system unlike those in other countries and if the present system is doing well, we will continue to use it.

Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting on why there is no need for local council elections.
by R. Nadeswaran

YANG BERHORMAT, I totally agree with you ­ we have a unique system where everything goes, as far as local authorities are concerned.
Comedy, said English writer, William Hazlitt, naturally wears itself out ­ destroys the very food on which it lives; and by constantly and successfully exposing the follies and weaknesses of mankind to ridicule, in the end, leaves itself nothing worth laughing at.

Yang Berhormat, I totally agree with you and am having a good laugh ­ we have a unique system where everything goes as far as local authorities are concerned. Yes, Minister! Our system is so unique that even a federal ministry does not have any say in the running of local authorities. As you said in Parliament on Tuesday, states have full authority to appoint local councillors as provided under Section 10 of the Local Government Act. In the process, bankrupts, people with criminal records et al have had the honour of being called "Honourable Councillors". Yes, Minister! Our unique system is about the only one in the world that provided councils and its officers immunity after their inefficiency and inaction caused the loss of 48 lives. Remember Highland Towers 13 years ago? Yes, Minister! The local authorities in Malaysia are unique because they can approve the construction and operations of a pub on a road divider. Don't believe me? On the next trip to Ipoh, drive along Jalan Sultan Abdul Jalil and have a pint or two ­ on the house. Yes, Minister! People in Petaling Jaya are forced to spend a few nights with the dead while the hum is being created for their journey to heaven. Ask the residents of Jalan Gasing and they'll tell you that an illegal funeral parlour and casket shop has been operating behind their houses for 14 years, without a licence and only our unique system condones and encourages their existence. Yes, Minister! The unique system that you talked about has turned some local councils into extortionists. Petaling Jaya is an example. If you don't donate RM10,000 to the sports club, you don't get a licence for the billboards. If you donate more, you'd probably have a monopoly. Yes, Minister! Local councils publish a whole stack of brochures, guidelines and pamphlets. Only our unique system allows them to produce them with the cost borne by ratepayers, while all income from the sale ends up in someone else 's pockets.

The Petaling Jaya City Council's publication ­ Guidelines for Home Renovations ­ is sold at RM10 each, with the money going to the sports club. Yes, Minister! Our local councils are so powerful that they can create millionaires. If not for the public groundswell, a consortium would have milked RM600 million from the business sector in Subang Jaya on the pretext of providing pest control services. Only our unique system allows non-qualified people to undertake such a task. Would you employ a lifeguard and give him six months to learn how to swim? That's what the Subang Jaya and Sepang councils did.

Yes, Minister! Only our system allows, encourages and condones the creation of dynasties. In one local council, the father, daughter and son-inlaw are councillors. Yes, Minister! It is said that laughter is the best medicine. Despite all the scams and the shenanigans, we are unique in the sense that we can have a good laugh at the many statements and pronouncements made by all and sundry. Like Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu said: As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it.

And that's what we all ought to do when confronted with other people's uniqueness. Is there somebody unique out there who will say it from his or her heart instead of going round the mulberry bush in diplomatic tones? R. Nadeswaran is deputy editor (special reporting) at theSun.

"...sudden urge to touch Gu Gu with his hand"

Something light for the day, in the midst of the coup. C&P from Beebs:

Man bites panda after zoo attack

A drunken Chinese tourist says he bit a panda who attacked him after he jumped into a zoo enclosure to "hug" the bear.

Zhang Xinyan, 35, had drunk four draught beers before deciding to enter the Beijing Zoo pen belonging to six-year-old male panda Gu Gu.

The startled Gu Gu bit both legs of his intruder, who responded by biting "the panda on its back", Mr Zhang was quoted by state media as saying.

Mr Zhang said he had not realised pandas could be violent.

He told the Beijing Morning Post that he had come to the Chinese capital "only to see the pandas".

"The seven-hour train ride was exhausting, and I drank bottles of beer when I arrived then had a nap," he added.

Punishment

The newspaper said Mr Zhang had a "sudden urge" to touch Gu Gu with his hand, so he jumped over the waist-high railing into the enclosure.

"When he got closer and was undiscovered, he reached out to hug it," the newspaper added.

Mr Zhang was bitten first on his right leg, and then on his left.

Newspaper photographs showed him lying on a hospital bed with blood-soaked bandages over his legs.

"I bit the panda on its back but its fur was too thick," Mr Zhang recalled.

He went on: "No one ever said they would bite people. I just wanted to touch it."

Zoo spokeswoman Ye Mingxia said the panda was unharmed and they were not considering punishing Mr Zhang yet.

"He's suffered quite a bit of a shock," she told the Associated Press by telephone.

Gu Gu, the panda. What a name for a panda. I wonder how do you call it in Mandarin when Gu Gu talks/cries/shouts? ;)
