Flight Conversation With A Kid

February 28, 2009

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, ‘Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.’

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, ‘What would you like to talk about?’

‘Oh, I don’t know,’ said the stranger. ‘How about nuclear power?’ and he smiles.

‘OK, ‘ she said. ‘That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass -Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?’

The stranger, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, ‘Hmmm, I have no idea.’

To which the little girl replies, ‘Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don’t know shit?


Tol Naik Lagi

February 27, 2009


Dua hari lepas aku berminat nak baca pasal cas tol yang naik lagi. Aku walaupun takde kenderaan sendiri, tapi pengalaman pakai kereta Fadinha selama seminggu hari tu cukup lah beritahu segalanya. Dengan kos minyak lagi, kemudian jalan sikit je ada tol lagi, bak kata kawan aku dulu “kan ke baaaaaangaaangg namanya tu?!”

Bagi PLUS, kadar kenaikan tol untuk sistem kutipan tol tertutup PLUS (Lebuhraya E1 dan E2) akan dinaikkan sebanyak 0.68 sen sekilometer bagi kenderaan Kelas 1, bagaimanapun kenaikan itu tidak melibatkan tol di Plaza Tol Bukit Kayu Hitam, Tambak Johor dan Bangunan Sultan Iskandar.

SPRINT-Kerinchi dan Damansara Link, kadar tol dinaikkan antara 30 sen dan 50 sen bagi kenderaan kelas satu manakala bagi AKLEH, kadar tol dinaikkan sebanyak 50 sen bagi kenderaan Kelas 1. 

Kadar tol di Lebuhraya BESRAYA dinaikkan sebanyak 10 sen bagi kenderaan Kelas 1 dan bayaran hanya dibuat di Plaza Tol Mines berikutan Plaza Tol Salak Jaya ditutup pada 24 Februari lalu. Sementara itu bagi Lebuhraya NPE pula, kadar tol dinaikkan sebanyak 40 sen bagi kelas kenderaan yang sama.

Dipetik dari Harian Metro online.

Jadi memang lagi lama lah aku guna kenderaan awam yang sekarang pun dah jadi semakin celaka lambatnya. Huh! Malaysia kita kata kan..??

Whenever I find the key to success, someone changes the lock.

The road to success??.. Is always under construction.

Alcohol doesn’t solve any problems, but if you think again, neither does Milk.

In order to get a Loan, you first need to prove that you don’t need it.

All the desirable things in life are either illegal, expensive or fattening or in a relationship to someone else.

When I see you 
I run out of words to say (oh oh) 
I wouldn’t leave you 
‘Cause you’re that type of girl to make me stay (oh oh)

Mestre Bimba

February 19, 2009


About Mestre Bimba : According to Wikipedia, Manuel dos Reis Machado, commonly called Mestre Bimba (born November 23, 1899, Salvador, BrazilFebruary 15, 1974) was a mestre (a master practitioner) of the Afro-Brazilian martial art capoeira.

Machado is said to have had two birth certificates, dated 1899 and 1900, respectively. 1900 is the date most commonly used.

The son of Luiz Cândido Machado and Maria Martinha do Bonfim, Manuel was born at the Bairro do Engenho Velho, Salvador. The nickname “Bimba” came up due to a bet between his mother and the midwife during his birth; his mother bet that he was going to be a girl and the midwife bet he would be a boy. After he was delivered, the midwife said… it’s a boy, look at his bimba (male sexual organ).

The story goes that an older and stronger boy from Pastinha’s neighborhood would often bully and beat him up. One day Benedito saw the aggression that Pastinha suffered, and then told him to stop by his house because he was going to teach him few things. In his next encounter with that boy, Pastinha defeated him so quickly that the older boy became his admirer.

Jadi sempena ‘kembalinya’ aku online ni (walaupun tak tahu bila lagi nak kemaskini), aku nak anda semua tatap gambar bawah ni dan komen apa yang anda semua nampak? 😛 kekekekeke..
