If you can use, some exotic booze
Theres a bar in far bombay
Come fly with me, well fly well fly away
Come fly with me, lets float down to peru
In lama land, theres a one man band
And hell toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, well float down in the blue
Once I get you up there, where the air is rarefied
Well just glide, starry eyed
Once I get you up there, Ill be holding you so near
You may here, angels cheer - because were together
Weather wise its such a lovely day
You just say the words, and well beat the birds
Down to Acapulco bay
Its perfect, for a flying honeymoon - they say
Come fly with me, well fly well fly away

On the 28th January 2007, I went to my best friends wedding. They were Rashiddin and Norhapizah. They are my friends while I was studying at UPM. Rashiddin aka Din was very close to me while I was studying at UPM. Both of them a diploma graduate promoted to first degree. Both of them know each other for almost seven years.
Watching them both promising each other vows (marrying) really makes me happy. I still remember the time when I’m studying at UPM. There are ups and downs in life and Din was always there with me. There are moments when I don’t want to remember about student life especially when I made stupid mistakes or being too childish. But Din helped me getting through the difficult time knowing the true meaning of life.
There were times that I’m not proud of my life in the campus, but one thing that I can’t deny and for sure, Din has been good to me in my campus life. And I thank God for it. Good luck to both of you!
The visit to the museum was worth it to learn and see the history of the Malaysian Police since the Malacca days. I was amazed specially by the bulk of the confiscated weapons and the case fact behind every item of it. Most of the item that was display was confiscate from the Communist terrorist.
There are no fees charged for the museum and it was open daily except on Monday. Here are the photos which I took during the visit that I would like to share with you all.
I do not managed to take photos from the meeting room but here are the photos taken during our break time at the swimming pool (above pic was me, then farid and farid and cousin in the hotel room) and hotel room. We had a wonderful time as an adult.
It was a great meeting...

Today I have to be ready and brush up for my best friend wedding (Rashiddin) held at Serdang. He was my good friend from my studies years at UPM. I'm really looking foward for the wedding because the brides are my friends. I promise to post the photo on my three days meeting, the visit to the police museum and Rashiddin's weddings pic tomorrow.

The question that we need to ask is that, how the hell our government, condone an action taken by four individuals representing government owned company (and for sure its fund) to sue somebody else for their personal revenge? And we talk about responsibility, honesty and all that jazz in journalism. What happens to the plagiarism of the company journalist? What does the action taken? Double standard!
Two nights ago, I went to the farewell party held to commemorate the departure of my General Secretary. It was splendid. But I can’t share any photos due to my silliness that forgot to bring the camera along. What a waste. But I keen on watching someone make a fool out of himself tonight on BBC. So eyes open!

"We are not seeking to close them down. At the same time we do not support people making defamatory statements whether online or in print," said the spokesman (of Darth Sidious) who cannot be identified under company rules. "We should allow the law to takes its own course."
That was the statement of the Dark Lord against the three Malaysian Jedi, Jeff Ooi, Rocky Bru and Sheih. It was a libel intended to suppress intellectual view of the Force from achieving against the Dark Side intended to enslave Malaysian with corrupt practices and never ending lies.
“As we live and breathe, we are witnessing the servant becoming the master. Those people whom we paid for their everything to work for us, has now dictate us. Are now working against us. Some say, better the devil than the deep blue sea, however I rather say, both is not good enough.” – Sheih
May the Force be with you. Let makes sure the Jedi order prevails!

There should be another body in-charge for development and investors pulling such as been done by Singapore government with the creation of the economic board responsible for promoting the region as a bed for MNC’s growth factor. Indeed government bodies like KESEDAR is credited for bringing Gua Musang to what it is today, but there are times when ones should review back the ways of doing business.
Our nation Malaysia is so rich either in resources and man-power. The only things educated people like us should do to reap the benefits of the prosperous world by utilizing what we already had and not hoping for some politicians and ill-intent son-in-law to rob it from the “real owner”… us!
My mother used to work at KESEDAR and it (KESEDAR) needed an outsider’s touch so that the development of the town can be expedite instead of malingering at the slow pace. Indeed Gua Musang had changed, but it needed more than it being given. It cannot be known as it used to be as the town of civil servants but as a town powered by the incorporated worldwide giants.
There should also be a body monitoring KESEDAR, which the mentioned body should be outside the government form. I’ve seen enough projects done by the tax payers money that went into the drain such as “Orchids Foster” project just because the “at the time” KESEDAR chairman loves orchid so much. It didn’t went out well because the fact of the conceived project it was loved by only one man the chairman himself and no one else.
I believe with the economic boosting from the Federal government by building up a comfortable highways linking Putrajaya-Kuala Lumpur-Klang Habor-Gua Musang, there is no doubt that MNC’s will invest in Gua Musang building up factories cum the beneficiary will be the Gua Musang residents.
There is already a link connecting Gua Musang to Cameroon Highlands which only took one hour drive but the public haven’t made known of. It is the best place to invest for FDI’s because it has what it takes to be competitive. There are a gateway for the foreign workers (Cameroon Highlands) and also much needed low cost workers with excellent willing to learn skills.
Seeing the town evolved from nothing to something worth to be expected from, you have to give the credits to Gua Musang MP’s which is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. I believe the man does do the work as MP's changing the town to what it is today.
The reason is that, from my observation, town like Gua Musang is much more competitive in providing the skill and semi-skill services to the multinational companies. There are basic infrastructures with abundance man-power that are willing to accept a low wages to be daily bread winners at Gua Musang. People hardly eat from hand to mouth everyday.
Thanks to the previous administration, at least Gua Musang is not lag behind in terms of academic distribution among the nation folks. What the state and federal government should do is to keep up with the basic infrastructures such as roads, electricity and basic needs. I believe towns like Gua Musang is much more attractive to MNC’s rather than younglings communist nations such as Vietnam or China.
