Kuala Lumpur, July 9, 2011. The Bersih 2.0 street demonstration. Just something to remember for many years to come..
Anti-Government Supporters: “Police brutality!!!”
Pro-Government Supporters: “Padan muka kau!!!” (“Serves you right!!!”)
The Climbing Man: “Years of practice with the coconut trees paid off today..”
The Policeman: “You can climb but you can’t run..”
The Climbing Man’s Family Members: “Look! Dad is in the news! Wow!”
Papa Bear: “All I wanted to do is go to Toys R’ Us..”
Have fun remembering..

Do You Want Fries With That?
That would be one of the most asked questions at some fast food restaurants but that would not be the case if you are buying something to eat at the Machap rest area. Over there, the question would be: “Do you want flies with that?”
If you are travelling between Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru on the NSE, you would not miss a rest area called the Machap R&R. Last week, while driving back from Johor Bahru to Shah Alam, we had the “luxury” of stopping over for a short break at this rest area . From the car, everything looked great as the rest area was recently renovated by PLUS.
They Are Everywhere!
However, once I stepped out of the car and went to one of the stalls there, I was greeted by hundreds of flies. While the few hundred of them were doing the welcome to rest area Machap song, there were few thousands other flies were busy “promoting” the food and goods for sale to travellers… What a sight!
What a morbid title to start the week. I am sure that most of us do not need to be reminded that death will eventually come and take us away from this world and nobody can escape that no matter how hard you try. Anyway, I am not going to write about how to face and accept death or what is waiting after death as I am not an expert in that subject matter but I just want to highlight three recent news that is related to death.
The news are about three different people, from three different places and with three different intentions and ended up with three different outcomes. In all three incidents, death was present, in one way or another.
You jump, they catch you. The first news was about a 38 year old woman who was looking for death by committing suicide. However, she did not get to meet death as she was rescued in the nick of time by the police from jumping off the ledge of a four-storey, under construction building in Kuala Berang, near the Sekayu Junction, in Trengganu yesterday.
The mother of one had a previous record of being mentally ill and according to the same news shown on the TV last night, she wanted to kill herself because of her husband is having an affair with another woman.
