I would like to start the post with.....

=================== FILLER ===================

It is just sad to see your friend mentally disabled. Hope God re-incarnate him into Mr Bean when he reborn, at least his retarded-ness can entertain people >.>

=================== END FILLER ===================

I would like to take this chance to wish all my readers out there a Happy Eid for those that celebrating it.

I also would like to make a small announcement to all my friends that available and have a free time to spare. Munzeer and I are planning to organize a simple camping trip to Pulau Lang Tengah in Terengganu (there will be a possibility of venue change due to monsoon condition). It will be a 3 days and 2 nights trip whereby our main objective is to enjoy ourself to the max :p Well, as for me, my real objective would be doing snorkelling all day long x)

So far only three people confirmed for the trip which are Munzeer, his cousin, and myself. For those that interested to join, you can contact Munzeer or me directly, as soon as possible. Anyhow, I’ll list out below the sketch of our planning for your reference:

- Date: 16th October 2009 – 18th October 2009
- Will be leaving around 9pm via car
- Budget for transportation around rm200 per person (as ferry itself might cost rm60 for a return ticket

As for the equipments that needed for the expedition are:
- Tent (we should have one in stock)
- Eveready Dolphin waterproof torchlight (really useful) at least each person must have one
- Mess tin
- Fire starter
- Solid fuel
- Animal repellent (especially snake)
- Knife, axe
- Fork and spoon
- Can opener
- Lighter
- Kerosine
- Rope
- Etc which u think necessary
- Raft (one raft for all of us is more than enough)
- Portable air pump
- Swimming aid
- Snorkellling set (optional)
- Sunblock
- First aid/medicine
- Clothes (the usage of shorts are highly recommended, save space and lightweight)

Nevertheless, food will our main concern for survival. Each day three types of meal will be taken (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Below are the sketch details about the food:
- Should to cover for 2 and half of days staying there (7 meals = 3 breakfast, 2 lunch, 2 dinner)
- Breakfast, bread + jam or nutella
- Estimated 2 loaf per person throughout the expedition (jumbo size)
- Lunch, maggi. Around 3 packets shared with 2 persons, or 1 packet per person per serving. Sardines, 1 can should be enough for 2 or 3 persons
- Estimated 2 or 3 maggi packets and 1 sardine can per person throughout the expedition
- Dinner, baked beans. 1 can should be enough for 2 persons.
- Estimated 1 can per person throughout the journey
- You can bring any extra food at your own discretion, but make sure it doesn’t be a burden

Water, the most valuble item for the trip. You are advised to limited yourself to consume 1 bottle per day. The detail as below:
- Will be using the 1.5 liter bottle
- Each person should bring 3 bottles (1 for backup)

That’s pretty much sums up everything. Further questions, you may contact me or mun directly.

Cow-Head Controversy: The Ordeal with MCMC

Warning! This entry will be in the borderline of safety level before the government decides to either to censored my blog or put me in jail.

It has been a while since I updated my blog. Although I still have a few more entries to put, I guess for now I skipped the rest and update them back later.

Last week was supposed to by my 1st anniversary working under the current company (09/09/09). But I guess it turned out to be pretty twisted and wicked experience in my working experience. For those that been following the local news, you should come across with the sudden decision of the Malaysia Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to take action against Malaysia’s first online news portal, which is quite well-known. This is due to the video footage that they considered offended to some of the Malaysian.

They started to question and interview those that involved. This also including my company, which hosts their servers. In the past week, my boss was interviewed by them in our own office. At that time I still haven’t arrived at the office yet as I’m on the evening shift. Being the Senior Engineer, there was a possibility that I would be called by them since I handled their server installation, network utilization, and IP allocation. But I guess luck was on my side as I didn’t been called.

But nevertheless, I had to escort them later to the Internet Data Center as they want to gather the final evidence before prosecuting my customer. They went in about 5 people and took each picture of the server that hosted the controversial video and at the same time copied the video as part of evidence.

Honestly, I felt like this is a medium of harassment which is uncalled for. But most of us know, we are just simply too powerless to fight. Oh well, one score for the government then.

Below are some of the pictures I took during the data center visit by MCMC. The other pictures are taken from courtesy from Mr. Danny Hong:
