    Flood, A Tourist Attraction???

    I read an article last few days through the online Utusan Malaysia newspaper and this article attracted my attention. Read it. (Malay version only.)

    Banjir tarikan pelancongan baru di Pahang
    19/08/2008 3:11pm

    KUANTAN 19 Ogos - Keadaan banjir yang sering melanda kawasan Sungai Lembing akan dijadikan produk tarikan pelancongan baru di Pahang.

    *This is the first time I heard flood as a tourist attraction. Keep reading...

    Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri, Datuk Muhammad Safian Ismail berkata, banjir di Sungai Lembing ISTIMEWA berbanding dengan tempat-tempat lain kerana ia berlaku setiap tahun.

    *Special because it happens every year??? Is Sungai Lembing the only place? If it's true then I'll admit that I'm lack of knowledge. I thought other places in Malaysia also flood like hell...

    ``Kita akan jadikan banjir di Sungai Lembing sebagai tarikan pelancongan,'' katanya kepada pemberita ketika ditemui selepas Majlis Perasmian Publisiti Draf Rancangan Kawasan Khas (RKK) Sungai Lembing di sini hari ini.

    *``Kita akan jadikan banjir di Sungai Lembing sebagai tarikan pelancongan,'' - You must be kidding!!!

    Draf RKK tersebut adalah usaha Majlis Perbandaran Kuantan (MPK) untuk memajukan Sungai Lembing menjadi pusat pelancongan yang dikenali sebagai tapak warisan dunia.

    *Flooded area as the 'Tapak Warisan Dunia"??? Are you sure?

    Menurut Muhammad Safian, antara tempat-tempat yang boleh dilawati ketika banjir ialah pusat-pusat pemindahan sementara mangsa banjir dan bilik-bilik gerakan. - Utusan

    Tibet's Culture

    Last week, I've came across randomly an article on the internet regarding Tibetan's cultures and realized that I have been reading the whole article, till the end. What making it so interesting is the article on their marriage system/culture. Very interesting!

    Source retrieved from

    "When strangers meet, they will ask the family names of each other. If they have the same family name, they cannot joke with each other and cannot intermarry.

    In the past, Sherpa people did not intermarry with Tibetans or other ethnic groups. But they could intermarry with Sherpa people with different family names within the Nepalese border, disregarding the restriction of nationality and district. For their marriage, there are some different situations.

    1. One is that the boy invites others to go to the girl’s home together to act as matchmakers, carrying wine and offering hada scarves. If all the girl’s family members agree with the marriage, they will invite the matchmakers to stay for dinner, and the couple can marry.

    2. The second way is that, when the boy makes an offer of marriage, if the girl’s parents agree with it but the girl does not agree, the boy will “take the bride by force”.

    3. The third way is that when the boy and the girl agree with the marriage but the girl’s parents do not agree, the boy will “take” the girl by force and hide her in mountain before begging her parents for their agreement. When he receives their approval, he will lead the bride home. Before marriage, the groom will give betrothal gifts to the bride’s family.

    *Conclusion: No matter what and how the girl's family can do, the boy still can get the girl.

    Sherpa people also have a marriage form that two brothers share the same wife. The wife has her own room with a double bed. The two brothers have their own rooms, and who will sleep with her is decided by the wife or by the two husbands. If there are four brothers in a family, the No.1 brother and the No.2 have a same wife, and the No.3 and the No.4 will share another wife. This is somewhat different than the old system in the Tibetan and Moinba areas.

    *This is usually done to avoid division of property and provide financial security. However, monogamy is more common throughout Tibet.

    Among the people with the Sherpa caste among the Sherpa people, there is a form of trial marriage. There is a traditional “Qomolangma Business Passage” from Dingri to Solhu and Kunbo in Nepal. In these latter districts, home to many thousands of people who fled at some time from Tibet, there are still many small wooden buildings for Sherpa people’s trial marriage today.

    *Trial = Kahwin cuba-cuba??? Main kahwin-kahwin??? Wow!!!

    When a Sherpa girl reaches the age of 14, her parents will allow her to find boy friends of her own free will and assign a room for her. If the family is rich, they will build a wooden building particular for their daughter and let her live there alone. When she chooses a boy friend, she can lead him stealthily to the wooden building to sleep. Even if her parents know, they will not intervene and will ensure that the girl has a good knowledge of sexual behavior.

    After living together for a while, if they are satisfied with each other, the boy will consign a matchmaker to send some earthen bowls of rice wine to the girl’s parents signifying that there is a formal engagement. After the engagement, the fiancĂ© can openly live in the wooden building of the girl.

    If either party is not satisfied with the other, the boy must leave immediately.

    *Does it mean that the boy can try other girls after this? Sleep for one night, the next day make her parents angry and when the parents are not happy the boy can f*** off. Wow! And look for the next victim...

    But most boys and girls can move onto the next stage successfully-namely, giving birth to babies. Only after this will the boy and the girl declare that they belong to each other. Then, the boy will make a formal marriage offer to the girl’s parent. After holding a ceremony, they will be confirmed as husband and wife.

    According the explanation of Sangzhuma, a Sherpa mother in Solhu and Kunbo who was preparing celebratory food for her daughter’s fiance to make an offer of marriage at her home, it is a simple truth there is no better way for young man and woman to learn and communicate with each other than sleeping in a same bed. Even if they sleep in a same bed, it is hard for them to learn and communicate with each other for a while. Hence the period of trial marriage should be long one until the time when they have a child and when they can endure the trust and test from bearing mutual responsibility.”

    Special Announcement: It's the...

    For those who are scared of ghosts, I'm sorry to tell you that tomorrow is the "Hungry Ghost Day".

    The Hungry Ghost Day which is celebrated by the Chinese in many countries is celebrated on the 15th of the seventh lunar month.

    In the Chinese tradition the thirteenth day of the seventh month in the lunar calender is called the "Ghost Day" and the seventh month is generally called the "Ghost Month" in which the ghost and the spirits, including the deceased will come out from the lower realm.

    Something that you should know:

    "During QingMing Festival the living descendant will pay homage to their ancestors, and during this Ghost Festival the 'deceased' will visit the living...!!!"

    Activities during the month will include preparing ritualistic food offerings, burning incense and burning joss paper.

    Picture source: Wikipedia

    Starting today till tomorrow if you see anyone doing offerings and burning incense by the road side...please remember that "DO NOT POINT, ASK OR THINK ABOUT IT".

    Whistle of God

    I went to the 'pasar malam' last few days and saw this stuff.

    It's a cross. All Christian in the world know that Jesus died on the cross. Even until today they use the cross during their prayer at home or anywhere and during mass in the church. I even watched a few Chinese ghost movies, making fools by holding the cross...planning to avoid themselves from ghosts. I found out it was so funny.

    Alright, don't misunderstood. This is not a ghost movie. It's the Indiana Jones movie.

    Back to the cross that I've mentioned just a moment ago about the cross that I saw at the pasar malam, it is a stainless steel made cross. It is very special because it comes with something that I can't even imagine.

    A whistle.

    F***! This is my first time I saw this kind of thing. They are making fun with this holy stuff. It costs RM8 and I purposely bought this stuff to show it to all of you. How can they make fun with this stuff? Adeh!

    I can't imagine if they can change the holy cross into... a key, a spanner, a screw driver, a can opener, a pen, an eraser...

    Alright, stop all these craps...

    I guess the main reason they tried to make it that way is just because of... SAFETY purpose. People say that cross is a holy stuff (Yes, it is!) so it can protect us from harm.

    So, they modified it into a whistle so that whenever they see a ghost saying 'Hi' to them, and suddenly that lucky guy got a heart attack, that person can grab those cross hanging on their neck and start whistling for help.

    Whistle my A** laaa...!!!

    *Anyway, I'm going to throw that thing away. I don't mind looking at my RM8 spreading its wings and flew off from my wallet. F***!

    China Showed Its True Colours, Someone Disagree

    Taken from the Yahoo! Sports' article. Read it:

    Some opening ceremony fireworks were faked!
    by Chris Chase

    "If you watched the Opening Ceremony on Friday night, chances are you said something like, 'no way that's possible' at least once. It turns out you were right.

    London's Telegraph newspaper reports that some of the fireworks which appeared over Beijing during the television broadcast of the Olympic Opening Ceremony were actually computer generated. But -- hold on -- it's not necessarily as bad as you think.

    The faked fireworks were actually set-off at the stadium, but because of potential dangers in filming the display live from a helicopter, viewers at home were shown a pre-recorded, computer-generated shot. It sounds dishonest, but I'm not sure it's such a terrible thing.

    The Opening Ceremony is, at its core, just one big performance. And isn't it accepted that some things might not be legit at a performance? The final torch bearer wasn't actually running around the top of the stadium, does the fact that everyone could figure that out make it any less? It might have been unnecessarily deceptive, but the firework-faking isn't that big of a deal. But, if I found out that the lighted-drum thing wasn't on the up and up, then we'll have problems.
