Artsy Fartsy Saturday. No, not with Tian.

galleri%20copy.jpg

Was at 777X – Galleriiizu last Saturday for the digital art launch. Honestly, the artwork was not impressive. I’ve always felt that although Malaysians are a creative bunch, they always lack good technique compared to their global peers. Technique comes with practice and dedication. But I’ve seen some really good digital art in advertising. Some art/creative directors are really good.

Then I hopped off to Hisham Rais’s cafe, Bau Bau, for some musical relief on the weekend. Read on for more…

Conflict in Islamabad, Pakistan

If you haven’t known already, there is a major clash in Pakistan. It began a group of Islamists tried to set up a separate judiciary rivaling Pakistani system. The Islamists kidnapped people whom they accused and convicted of committing “unislamic” activities. More audaciously, they attacked government buildings.

The state has responded and shooting had occurred Since July 3 2007. For more information, please visit Metblogs Islamabad (some specific postings were done on Day 3 and Day 4) and kindly, please show your moral support to those that simply wish to live free from fear, from religious persecution and guns.

Yellow Mini Bus in Subang Jaya

Relics of a bygone era still exist in Subang Jaya. Catch one after hopping off the Komuter. Photo by FL2020.

WOW. They are still around!
I thought they have disappeared but hey, guess what Mini Buses still service the Subang Jaya area. Unlike the pink buses of before, these are painted a bright yellow, normally meant for school buses.

And the fare is STILL 70 sen. And, and, and….true to its name, it ran a red light! Hahahhahahahaha…Also, the passenger capacity as written on its inside walls is apparently 25 seated and 10 standing (check out the photo below on the top right where this is painted in black).

Haze again

Air quality in Kuala Lumpur is noticeably bad for the past few weeks. Last Friday as I was driving home, the skyline of the city was shrouded with awfully familiar haze. The two towers were hardly visible from Sungai Besi.

The situation hasn’t gone to previous years’ level but I have a feeling that it won’t be long before that happen.

In the meantime, I am happy to say that the air has been relatively clearer since last Friday. There are reports that other places have not been so lucky however.

The Malaysian government will need to do something As an individual, sure, I could report open burning or kindly ask other the burn their trash liberally and stuff, but when the issue is caused by a neighboring country, government action is particularly required.

I am tried of going through the annual season of haze. Each time it happens, the government says it would do something and each time, nothing happens. It is time to get some backbone and put some pressure on those that responsible for it, in and outside of the country.
