Let me introduce you to a new event that is held in Malaysia at the moment. It’s called the Month of Thievery ! Every time when festive season sets in, thievery ops are on high. Burglary, embezzlement, larceny, looting, robbery, mugging, trespassing, shoplifting, intrusion, fraud. You name it! Those are the act of thievery.
This month’s trend is bag snatching. It happens everywhere, day or night, regardless of whether it’s deserted or crowdy area. It still happens even if all precaution were taken to prevent such incident from happening. Snatchers are everywhere, waiting for the right moment to strike when they sees the opportunity.
This month, a friend of mine became a victim of snatch thief. Her bag containing her mobile phone, purse, some other value items were snatched off by a Malay guy in just a flash. Guess what? Yesterday, while I was taking dinner at Wangsa Maju food centre, a girl’s bag got snatched in front of so many people. The girl’s friend gave a chase but the guy got off on a motorcycle as his accomplice were waiting for him by the roadside. Now you see how desperate people are? Well, let me tell you something. If you plan head of the police station and tell the police that the person who snatched is a Malay, they will ask if you’re 100% sure that the snatcher is a Malay?. I guess they just couldn’t accept the fact that the highest number of cases involves a Malay snatcher.
This is so freakin weird…
Just couple of days ago, I posted a Petrol Saving Tips . The next thing I know, Petronas is screamin their asses off bout raising the fuel price.. Gosh ! If only I knew what’s coming out for jackpot tomorrow ! Cos if I strike the pot, I don’t have to worry that I don’t have the extra $$ to fill my tank.
Hmm.. but then again, I’m still considered lucky that I don’t own a car yet. My family has only 1 car and I only get to use it when I’m back in Seremban.
Anyway, our DPM said there won’t be a price hike this year BUT Petronas’s proposal will be taken into consideration. Which means, fuel price will surely go up next year. And then the propanganda starts…. Sign board being put up telling everyone how good the government is, subsidizing the fuel blaa blaa blaa…
If really so, why did the government exports low-sulphur fuel to other countries at high price and import medium/high sulphur fuel for cheaper price for us to use ? Anyone who studied Geography in high school would know that Malaysia is rich of low sulphur fuel on the Sunda plates.
I remembered someone told me that fuel with higher content of sulphur can damage engine faster. Can anyone confirm this ?
Today was supposed to be happy day for my friend cos it’s her birthday. Unfortunately, things went wrong for her. She was looking forward to her birthday last night and it was also the last day of her mid-term examination.
Little does she know, she became a victim of a snatch thief. That bastard snatched her bag containing her purse, cellphone, and few other valuable stuffs. She’s now totally dead broke and there’s gonna be lotsa explaing to do since the phone she was using, belongs to her sister. The only thing I don’t understand is, WTF are those passerby doing? All they did was just WATCH and NOT helping at all, despite the fact that she was yelling for help. Is this the Malaysian culture ?
How dare that Malay bastard calling himself a Muslim, going around snatching other people’s belonging in the month of Ramadhan. This is totally outrageous ! Has the government not feed him enough that he has to go around stealing ?
I wonder why whenever a Chinese goes into a police station and reported a “Malay” snatched their stuff, the Policeman would ask to double-confirm that the snatcher really is a Malay or not. Why is that so ? Are they protecting them ? This is what happen when she went to file her report and this was exactly the same thing that happened to me 2 years ago when I filed a report of snatch thief. I think they would probably discard the case very soon because it’s not important and it did not happen on a “Datuk”’s son or daughter. The police have “better things to do” than to care about such small cases..
Well, to that bastard who caused misery and trauma to my friend, here’s my “prayers” for you.
“ May your coming days filled with mishaps. All the consumed food you bought with the money you stole will cause disease to you and your family. Series of unfortunate events will haunt you and your family and your descendents. You future kid will be born without a reproductive organ so that will be the “last” of you. And when you die, hope you’ll rot in HELL “
I just received this in the Aftermath of Negarakuku issue comment earlier
Here’s my reply…
I’m not interested in creating controversial issues at all. I do respect the Malays except for certain “bad apples”. But that doesn’t mean I think there isn’t any bad Chinese at all. I never said Namewee is right neither he’s wrong. What I was pointing out is that how everyone perceive such issue.
I hold strongly to the word “Unity”. Because of that, I have multi-racial friends and I really respect these people. Why ? Cos we’re able to talk about Namewee issue in a rational manner without bashing up each other when we dine together. Nobody has the right to correct anyone.
“you all dont realise that how ppl look at you, you know?….cermin muka sendiri dulu…dont be too arrogant…wake up!!”
How about telling that to yourself and what is your reply to it ? But I think what you said is right. In fact that applies to every single Malaysian in Malaysia. Take a good look of themselves before promoting themselves to the world.
Nobody is perfect. I see myself in the mirror everyday when I wake up and I see a person full of flaws. People disregard all these flaws because they’re ignorant by nature. Are you perfect ?
Since you said “chinese are like that” , You are welcome to judge me if you want. Because that way I’m able to improve myself.
p/s: Azman, If you’re reading this, or if have read until point, I just want you to know that I’m not holding grudge against you. You have voiced your thoughts and I respect that.
And those are following this post, I hope you leave your comments in a constructive manner. This blog is not a place to promote “hatred”. Thank you very much !

1. Fill up your car or truck in the morning when the temperature is still cool. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground; and the colder the ground, the denser the gasoline. When it gets warmer gasoline expands, so if you’re filling up in the afternoon or in the evening,what should be a gallon is not exactly a gallon. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and temperature of the fuel (gasoline,diesel, jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products) are significant.Every truckload that we load is temperature-compensated so that the indicated gallonage is actually the amount pumped. A one-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for businesses, but service stations don’t have temperature compensation at their pumps.
2. If a tanker truck is filling the stations tank at the time you want to buy gas, do not fill up; most likely dirt and sludge in the tank is being stirred up when gas is being delivered, and you might be transferring that dirt from the bottom of their tank into your car’s tank.
3. Fill up when your gas tank is half-full (or half-empty), because the more gas you have in your tank the less air there is and gasoline evaporates rapidly, especially when it’s warm. (Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating ‘roof’membrane to act as a barrier between the gas and the atmosphere, thereby minimizing evaporation.)
4. If you look at the trigger you’ll see that it has three delivery settings: slow, medium and high. When you’re filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to the high setting.You should be pumping at the slow setting, thereby minimizing vapors created while you are pumping. Hoses at the pump are corrugated; the corrugations act as a return path for vapor recovery from gas that already has been metered. If you are pumping at the high setting, the agitated gasoline contains more vapor, which is being sucked back into the underground tank, so you’re getting less gas for your money. Hope this will help ease your ‘pain at the pump’!
