Why do women, make up?

From lipsticks to fake eye-lashes to hair sprays. Why do women make up?

Imagine doing this every morning. Clean your face, apply concealer, lay the foundation, colour your eye brows, apply eye-liner, apply mascara, apply blush and FINALLY apply the lipstick. And this is just the basic steps.

Why go for all the trouble when what ALL men really want is for you to take it all off???

It is actually not for men to see. It’s for their own SPECIES! Women wear make up to show to other women how good they look like. No woman wants to look like a plain laywoman when their friend who is also another plain laywoman looks like a queen.

I don’t even feel like shaving daily. Put on shaving cream, clean the razor and shave. Three simple steps only and i have already find it tiring. Make up? I would die……lol, I can’t even wake up in time to beat the traffic let alone wake up 2 hours ahead to look like a peacock.

So the competition is basically amongst women themselves. Make up needs skill and practice.

The problem is, after you get married, you would not have make up on at night do ya?

So that is why they say…. the real nightmare comes only after marriage.

Touch of heart!

WoW! It has been a few weeks uh!

First things first, i organised with MUPhaS to an orphanage last week. This is an all girls orphanage btw. Don’t you see how a small act of just visiting them and playing games with them makes them happy??? We had sought some sponsors and brought some good to their homes, giving them daily supplies.

Now, going on to give back to the society means improving you karma. Honestly. You wouldn’t want to die in hell later. It’s doesn’t neccessarily have to be for humans. You can give back to animals as well.

Next, I wanna talk about a region in a part of the world. The Middle East. Our Middle Eastern brother have FINALLY come to their senses that THEY the civillians are the superior ones. NOT the government. After being led by the nose with a string for so long. 20 years, 32 years, 40 years….. omg, where is the democracy? Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Tunisia…etc. They actually have two sides. The good people are led by the nose by government officials. The religious fanatics are led by the horns by Al Qaeda.

It seems kinda strange isn’t it? Which boils back down to Malaysia. Why have the Malaysians be told what they can or cannot do by the government? Of course if it’s illegal then it’s wrong… but we’re talking about education. Food. Religion. Books. Do you think our education system is good? The govenrment sure think it is. Do you think our food is safe? The government says it is. Do you think that what book we read is also a matter of concern to the government? The government is GOOD. But the people running them are BAD.

Why is it that when you open tap water from Japan (or many other countries fyi), water can be directly drank but you can’t in Malaysia? -It’s not rocket science technology that Japan has and Malaysia doesn’t. Japan has pipes. Malaysia has none? Japan has pumps. Malaysia got no pumps? Japan has water. Malaysia got quadruple the amount. But why can’t we have clean water to drink? Rather why can’t we have CLEAR looking water rather than brown….?

Why is it that every (developed) country has bullet trains. We don’t have. Every country has subways. We don’t have. Every country has equal opportunities. We don’t have. Healtcare system….lets not even talk about that. Quality control. Malaysia has one of the worst in all the countries i have been. Fake eggs??????? WTF? Yes, it was made in China but how on earth did it get to our shores??? Again, we go back to our custom officers and ill mindset civillians.

Is our country THAT poor? We have multi-national corporates around the world. We have giant airliners. We have petroleum. We have skilled work force.

It’s back to the management. Why we got no clean drinking water? Because the pipes are rusty on the way to our homes. Why is it not changed? Was it because someone said it changed the pipes they but did not? Work a penny, charge a dollar. Sounds familiar?

I hope as a first step towars change, the Sarawakians know what to do for their coming state elections. You can’t win them, but at least deny the two thirds majority.

Like i said, the policies are good, but the people running them are lousy.

A total revamp is needed.

Overstaying.

Sometimes, one should not overstay their tenure. When the country or administration is going well, people will support you but when people see your face day in and after, people get sick of seeing you, get sick of your ideas, and get sick of your ideologies.

Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria……. Lets not look so far!

Sarawak is the time to change. Kelantan also. Some local political party ministers also time to change. Local sports council leaders also time to change. (i.e. Malaysian Badminton, Hockey, Olympic Council….) Local media moguls also time to change. These people just don’t seem to leave!

It’s good that you have fresh blood and fresh ideas when you have run out of yours and when yours don’t work anymore.

Well, who am i to say!

Mulu, Sarawak

I was holiday-ing at Mulu, in Sarawak, hiking in the caves and monsoon jungles.

Mulu is a Malaysian forest reserve rich with Limestone Caves, wild animals & beautiful scenery. I took a flight from KLIA (MAS) to Kuching, then transfer flight to Miri (MAS), stayed a night at Miri and another transfer to a smaller plane from Miri (MAS-Wings) to Mulu the next day.

This is Mulu airport. Small but really neat one. The first flight was cancelled so i had to stay a night at Miri. *A piece of advice, plan loads of free time on your schedule as Mulu always rains thus airplane can’t see runway and can’t land. Thus flight cancel.

Checked into the Royal Mulu Resort. Not bad. But lack a little enthusiam in food variety and room service. They have a cultural dance show while dinnner is being serve every night at 8pm.

This is the view of the resort. All are built on stilts which are hoisted 6ft above the ground. The rooms were splendid.

After checking, time to start trekking. But first, off to lunch…..by boat. My “Rolce Royce” here it comes!haha.

Had lunch at a village restaurant. Not bad. All planted by themselves. This church was beside the restaurant. Most of them are Penan-s…who are Bahasa Malaysia speakin Christians.

After lunch, head to Deer Cave for bat sight seeing,…. In my hired “limousine” owned by the restaurant owner who is also the driver.

His cat Upin wanted to tag along the limousine ride too.

Andy, the park ranger, holding Upin.

Gunung Mulu national park.

This is the bat observatory area and also the entrance to the deer cave. It was a healthy 8km hike TO THE ENTRANCE of the deer cave. No pictures along the way as it was pouring heavy rain and i was wearing a raincoat and all drenched. No pictures of things in this cave as well as it was also raining from water above the cave into the cave.

The cave was about 5km of stair climbing. And another 8km hike out of the reserve.

The next day is to the clear wind cave and some other cave. Access to the cave is only via river. Andy in the picture.

Long houses of the Penans along the way. It was a 15 minute and coincidentally 15 horse power ride to the cave foothill.

That’s Gunung Api where the cave is located. Had to track by foot.

After that cave, went to another cave, dunno what’s the name by boat.

You need rangers with you all the time! Clear Water Cave is a staggering 189km long!!!!! You will get lost in the cave itself!!

Inside is really beautiful. With heaps of satelites, insects and bats. The park ranger explains of the formation of the these sharp rocks due to phyto-something bacteria inside them.. Got more pictures of the cave to upload. Wait till i resize them first…

This is a local clinic. Attended by a medical assistant. Not a medical officer. Above are the long houses seen while hiking along the way and the pathway.

Above is the only school available in Mulu. Secondary they have to move out i guess. Access to this school is mainly by boat! How cool is that…..

Mulu is all great. Things that you should be reminded of are raincoats, torchlights!, caps, really tough shoes (loads of walking and hiking), mosquito repellant and some form of entertainment.

Basically no internet access…only in the resort at a stagerring RM35 per hour. Not much of astro and tv, very blur coverage but you’ll have loads of free time to think and walk with nature in this lovely isolated area in Sarawak.

On the final day, was supposed to fly off at 10am in the morning but flight delayed as the plane can’t land. Waited for the next plane to come at 3.15pm and hope that it will not be fully booked as the next connecting flight from Miri-Kuching-Kuala Lumpur was at 4.10pm. Lucky not fully booked and able to to reach Miri airport at 4.05pm and took the flight out of Miri. Such a relief as to not stay another night in Mulu.

 

All in all, Mulu is really REALLY fully much recommended for thrill seekers and hiking lovers.

Remember to bring RAINCOATS!

I have just finished watching Shaolin. Not bad…. but i can’t just help the fact of seeing some actors again and again and again….. One such is Andy Lau.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Andy Lau. He’s really good. Versatile and professional.

He can play police, villain, romantic guy, monk, teacher, chef, gangster, comedian, lawyer, playboy, tycoon, beggar, martial artist, warlord, detective…. hell he might be even acting as an actor!

Andy Lau no doubt is one of the most versatile actors and adapts very fast. He’s the ambassador for Osim btw. Before the movie i was at Osim sitting on a sample massage chair with a HUGE portrait of him in front of me who looks like a multi-millionaire and the next thing he’s a monk in the cinema.

He’s good to watch but too much of Andy Lau just makes me confuse on other roles i’ve seen him before in other movies. I think that he should retain his credibility by choosing movies that have significance remembrance of him rather than be an actor of any sorts..

Actors like Johnny Depp, Daniel Craig, retain their wanted-ness by only acting in certain roles.

Even the likes of Bee Gees was once so bored of when their hit song kept hitting the number one spot every week. People got sick of them but after they took a break, they were a hit again! Even Michael Jackson had the same problem.

Well, who am i to say that to Andy Lau!!! Just food for thought.
