And how many actually reads their own group blog, not that it matters that much:



With all the merger going on, someone's feeling very very lonely. You know, sometimes you have to be very charitable. Very very charitable.

After all, birds of a feather flock together. Just ask Wong. How he obediently removed the online news after the kind instruction from 'above'.

Merry Christmas!

More Vietnamese Bride Marriage Woes



Marriage bliss turns worrisome for four who wed Viet women
Maria J.Dass

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 22, 2006): A group of men - some accompanied by parents - turned up at a coffee shop in Muar in December last year to witness a parade of Vietnamese women and to pick their wives.

They found marital bliss but, a year down the road, they found their marriages are not recorded with the National Registration Department (NRD). Thus, their children are considered illegitimate and cannot be registered as Malaysian citizens.

Chew Miang Chee's joy at holding his first born son was shortlived because when he wanted to register his child who was born on on Dec 5, he was told that he could not do so as there were no records of his marriage in the system.

Chew, 41, a plumber was told that there were no records of his March 9 marriage and thus the marriage certificate he held was a fraudulent document. The certificate was seized by the department.

His son is currently stateless and the best that can be done is to register the child as a Vietnamese.

Today, Chew and three of his friends Fong Kok Heng, 38, Tan Kock Hwa, 33, and Tey Ley Hwa, 33, who also picked out and married the foreigners from the same parade may thus face the same dilemma.

They turned up at the MCA public services and complaints department today to highlight their plight.

According to them See, a relative and friend, had introduced them to a Malaysian agent in Vietnam by the name of Raymond Teh whom they each paid RM13,800 as agent fees and for arranging to register their marriages.

See, who had also sought the services of Teh, has two sons from his Vietnamese wife and had no problems with his marriage registration and registration of his children's births.

However, Chew, Fong and Tan were not as lucky. According to them, Teh told them to go to the Muar NRD to get their marriages registered, but later changed the venue to a Chinese Association headquarters.

When they turned up at the association together with their families, they were not met by a marriage registrar but by Teh who himself filled out the forms and conducted the registration exercise on March 9 for Chew and Fong, and on Feb 7 for Tan and Tay.

Although the NRD confirmed that Tay's certificate was authentic, he is still concerned as Tan's certificate has been deemed false.

Both are currently expecting their first born and are worried that they may have to face the same predicament as Chew. Tan's wife is eight months pregnant while Tay's is four months pregnant.

Department head Datuk Michael Chong said the department will assist them to lodge a police report and hoped the police will conduct a serious probe to determine what went wrong.

"We will also seek the help of Deputy Home Minister Datuk Tan Chai Ho to assist in this matter," he said.

Chong said the Muar NRD has been very helpful and have agreed to register the marriages of the trio without records. Their children can thus be registered as citizens, he said.

As for Chew, we will try to help him and seek the goodwill of the NRD and the ministry to register his first born, he added.

Have Malaysian men given up hope on finding Malaysian women as wives?

Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Dong Zhi! Here's a recycled post from last year. Did the same thing this year...yeah, the balls burst again.

First, bring the water to boil and throw in some ginger slices:



I bought two packets of them: peanut and red bean fillings, with 10 balls each:

Notice the plastic bag underneath them? Couldn't that be more deragatory enough for its colour? Why? Why all all colours in the world-YELLOW? Royally? NO!

Throw in the frozen balls and bring it to boil from this...



...to this, and add sugar to taste.

Float, float, sticky balls, gently in the pot.

The peanut filling...

Notice the muddy soup? Yeah...a few balls burst...

...and the red bean filling

Mmm...the red bean filling definitely tastes better.

He then crashed his party, but he didn't mind at all.

OMFG! That means when I want to visit any town in Malaysia, I have to kencing tepi jalan before this?


Let's not hope the next headline would be something like these:

"Clean air a necessity in all towns" (kinda happened already)

"Clean water a necessity in all towns" (also kinda happened already)

but most importantly, we need this headline:

"Clean ministers a necessity in all towns"

I wouldn't lend even a sesame length of support to the Puny Air-head Simians, but something's very fishy when two EICs speak the same lingo here and here.

Malaysia's Microgravity Experiments in Space: Nothing Novel About It

Sorry if this came in a bit late.

So you saw it on the front page and thought that we all will have a sigh of relief and the space mission will be worth it after all, eh?

Read more here.

Well, nothing to be surprised about actually. We already heard about the flip-flop-f*ck since last September; just that some smart-ass Parliament Secretary didn't sleep with her boss do her homework by double-checking with her boss and had a verbal diarrheoa in Parliament, confusing us all.

What is something fresh and much anticipated this time is the list of experiments being finally revealed:



And this is what the Jarjis fella claimed:

“The Americans do experiments for their own industries and they do not share their findings. It is the same with the Russians or Japanese; they will not share. This is why it is important for our Angkasawan to carry out these tests,” he said.


And he/The Star believed that he/they could lie to us by saying this:

Unlike other countries that have to pay the Russians to send their astronauts to space, the entire programme is borne by the Russians.

Yeah, our country is the most powderful country in the world, can go flee of charge wan!

Something novel about the experiments? A simple search in Pubmed on 'microgravity cells' or 'microgravity microbes' came out with very interesting results. I let these screenshots and attached links speak for themselves and you'll be the judge.

Two big questions:
Who is going to pay for the use NASA's centrifuges and bioreactors?
and
Is the single bugger chap trained to do all those experiments?

Because as far as I know, the 'main batu' space trip only covers for the barter of the Sukhoi fighterplanes with Russia...

A Sucker Born Each Day



That goes as a warning to all of us also. Just because someone had a sex change and came out with an album doesn't mean that he/she is all lovey-dovey.

The Angksawan™ Blog: 4 Months, 5 Posts, Something Very 'Angkasa' About This Blog

I got this pointer about our Bo_ _ hnauts blogging from The Malaysian, and also earlier (a more convincing) parody by Lulu.

So I took the trouble of clicking the link given by The Malaysian and I was disappointed. It was just a website after all (people don't really how to differentiate between blogs and websites nowadays, you know-not The Malaysian's fault by Bernama's fault). It is also so full of flash contents that my computer hang just now and I had to retype this post.

Nevertheless, my face lit up when I saw the part on the scientific experiments only to be disappointed to find out that it is just C&P stuff again, without any real concrete experiments.



But after much perusing, I finally managed to find the blog after all. Yup, just as mentioned in the title, just 5 posts for the past 4 months. Looks like the Angkasa (which rhymes with Raksasa) blog is a serious contender to those lazy busy celeb/femes bloggers!

Here's a very interesting excerpt from the blog:



Cold, alone, far away from home from spouses, marriage delayed, 'needs'...My mind is already running wild!

Try to visit their blog to pose them a very good question like "Are you enjoying with the money which could have made us lessen our burden such as the toll rates, petrol, etc.". See if it gets through. You'll never know. Sometimes racist articles even get posted on the PM's late wife condolences website for months and nobody will even notice it!

Oh, in case you haven't noticed it, the chest-thumping about sending off the Bo_ _ hnaut to the space on the 50th Merdeka celebration is a farce after all. It has been postponed to the 6th of October.
