Recently, a group of people were busted in a sex party over New Year. Condoms, alcohol, leftover pizzas and drugs were found in the room. One of the arrested ones is a newscaster who is going to get married next week. There was also an actress too. Read more here
My family had a conversation about thisover dinner. My mother just blurted it was a shame for a bride-to-be to be involved in this kind of activity. If she were the fiancee, she would cancel the marriage. Would you? Me? I don't know because all I know is I won't even have a relationship that would progress to that stage to begin with! But I would actually cancel the marriage because I won't want to have a partner that wants to be that wild after marriage. It's a shame actually. Oh well, it won't be if you are not busted though; if you just do it quietly.
My sister had also a similar experience to that news but she quickly get out of the 'party' when she noticed the situation is not right. She was invited to a gathering by her schoolmate to a hotel.. room. There would be drinking alcohol and such my sister was told. How long? It would be the whole night. My sister thought it was just a social drink but she was quite shocked to know the 'friends' would be sleeping in the hotel room. Everyone, a mixed of female and male. Anyway, my sister went and came back midnight when she smelled something fishy will happen further. My mum actually disallowed her because you never what would happen in that kind of situation.... I don't think I would ever be in this kind of situation because I'm a precautionary person. I don't mind going drinking but why drink in a hotel room but not in the lounge? That is fishy isn't it? That would be a NO for me. It's not in my dictionary to begin with.
Maybe not guy raped some girls but guy being raped by a girl gang? I have heard of this before back in New Zealand. And this kind of report always goes undereported. If you are a guy, would you want people to know that you have been raped especially when you are in a society where guys are the top of the hierarchy food chain? I would be impressed.
And we also talked about binge drinking. It happens once a friend of my sister tried binge drinking just to showoff how capable she is to the friends until her boyfriend, I believe, carried her back to her room. And she is very proud of that incident. We totally agreed that drinkers both female and male should not be drinking excessively just to showoff even though you can. What do you want to achieve or show by doing so?
I guess no matter how much I want to try out those fancy bars I saw in newspaper I would just stick to my method: drink at home until I get drunk which I never had. Even if I want to, my guy friend told me to go alone for he would not want to go along with me even though I propose of leaving the place before 9pm, way before the happening....
So people, be rational before you do anything despite your voice screaming to do something extraordinary in your life. The effects will ripple throughout your life.....

I'm creating a directory on environmental-friendly products from all countries. It's actually for my own purpose but I decided to put it on my blog to share with you all. If you have or know any and would like to share with me, please leave me a message so I put up here too.
I'm not a particular person of checking out whether these companies are producing 100% green products or even have any personal standards that the companies should adhere. So my environmental-friendly term is very liberal, mind you.
I love this shop's layout. It's very simple and easy to browse just like etsy.com. But what is good about this online shop is the owners will categorise their products as in cruelty-free, organic, recyclable, etc. So start browsing!
I personally like this website because it's very informative about the materials they used to produce shirts. They supply bamboo, hemp and cotton shirts. They do international shipping and the total price can be obtained when you check out. This company is from the US and prices are in USD.
All I know this shop sells in EURO!! So yes, the products are expensive and they are produced in Africa, so it seems. They sell organic cotton shirts for male, female and kids. I think I did send them an enquiry about international shipping but no reply.
I think this shop is in the US since shipping is free for the US if purchase above 100. I'm attracted to the products because they have prints on organic shirts! Catered to female and male in USD.

It's a day after New Year. And I seriously never thought of starting the second day with anguish. No big deal actually. Just got kinda pissed with some people behind the tv. Why? You see there is not many gossips about the local entertainers in Malaysia. They somehow lead a very quiet life though some did make the headlines but they were never as huge as how the US artists created. But recently the media [and definitely someone] tried to imitate the Hollywood style: make a mountain of a mole hill off someone's privacy or even some anguish matters. But in my context is out of someone's happy event. I got no grudge against weddings and such. But is it necessary to air some local artist's wedding on tv and interviewing people behind the scene? Is it necessary to exaggerate an artist's wedding just to exhibit how grand one's wedding is? If yes, it's none of our business!! Why not use the money budgeted for the filming of the wedding to help people who really need financial help to put food on the table for the kids? Especially in this dire times where there are some people out here in Malaysia got retrenched... why want to show this kind of program to people where the main worry is what to eat next? People who have financial woes just don't care what these artists wore or eat during the wedding reception. This kind of program doesn't enligthen our soul but only breeds anguish and worries and the thinking of why life is unfair. Where is hope? Would it influence our future generation that being a celebrity is the answer to everything in their life?
Oh well, I might have just been too critical but I thought my concern is legitimate.
So who is the unlucky artist kena(Manglish for been) stepped by me? Here is a coverage of them. I repeat I got no grudge againts them. I only againts those people whose idea is to show us stupid programs like documenting some celebrity's wedding to the audience.

Good lord. It's just another damn boring day. I'm getting frustrated because I have lots of resolutions since 2006 that I have not achieved. I'm renewing it and by hook and crook I want half of it to be achieved this year. So at the mean time, a haiku for today:
no more fireworks
just another day
Kuih Bengka/ White Rice Cake
Tuesday, December 30, 2008
I love eating this kuih/ snack.
200g rice flour
100g green pea flour
2.3 litres coconut milk
3/4 tsp salt
3 pandan leaves, knotted
1. Lightly grease a 23cm square baking tray and preheat oven to 180C.
2. Combine rice flour with green pea flour and coconut milk in a mixing bowl. Strain the mixture into a non-stick saucepan. Stir in sugar and salt and add the pandan leaves.
3. Cook and stir continuously over low heat for 5-6 minutes until batter is smooth. Remove the pandan leaves.
4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking tray. Bake the kuih for an hour or until the surface is dark brown. Halfway through, turn the tray round for even baking.
5. Cool the kuih completely before cutting into slices.
Note = Apparently I heard there's grade of green pea flour. If your kuih doesn't have good texture or it just look weird, it could be the rice or the green pea flour. My friend was telling me that the best green pea flour can be found in Penang, Malaysia.
But don't let this hinder u! Trust me. This kuih is absolutely good.
