Tiny Baby set to head home

Haydee Ibarra looks at her 14-week-old daughter, Melinda Star Guido, at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2011. At birth, Melinda Star Guido tipped the scales at only 9 1/2 ounces, a tad less than the weight of two iPhone 4S. Most babies her size don’t survive, but doctors are preparing to send her home as soon as the end of the month. Melinda is believed to be the second smallest baby to survive in the United States and the third smallest in the world. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)

Made in Malaysia condoms

NEW DELHI: A leading rubber industry agency has predicted Malaysia will emerge as the world's top condom producer this year, dethroning Thailand as the market leader.

The Malaysian Rubber Export Promotion Council said Malaysia has captured at least one-third of the world's production, surpassing the one billion mark.

“We can be the world's No. 1 this year due to flood woes in Thailand. Our last year's production figures would have easily crossed a billion condoms,” said Low Yoke Kiew, the council's marketing and development director.

In 2010, Malaysia, the world's fourth largest natural rubber producer, shipped out latex-made sheath contraceptives worth nearly RM300mil, almost tripling the export value in 2005.

Malaysia, backed by the strong latex products industry, largely small and medium size, joins the billion-piece condom makers' club, coincidentally dominated by Asian giants.

Top Asian manufacturers such as Thailand, China, India, Japan and Malaysia continue to flood global markets with over 10 billion condoms.

Ultra-thin, multi-coloured-scented condoms, sold in fancy packets in nook-and-corners are a fast-growing consumer item, even in a conservative market like India where they are sold in public vending machines.

Besides rising health awareness and cheap and easily used contraceptives, the United Nations health programmes and sexual advertisements are pushing up condom sales globally.

In China, over two billion condoms are sold, while the Japanese buy 580 million pieces a year. India's production has crossed a billion pieces.

“Malaysian condoms are in good demand and competitive. We're now supplying a lot to UN programmes. We expect very good growth for all our latex products this year, including condoms,” Low added.

Condom makers rely on natural rubber, as over 90% of the sheath contraceptives are made using latex, while lamb intestines is another material used in the industry.

The first rubber condom was produced in 1855, apparently as thick as a bicycle inner tube. Eventually, sophisticated technology has revolutionised condom production into almost weightless, lubricated and cheap items. - Bernama


No wonder  the Malaysian education system are so coy about teaching sex education in schools.

Why would they want it that way? It's  a RM300 million dollar industry for whoever gets hold of it of course.

Just kidding Najib.......just kidding.

and lets not forget about abortions and unwanted babies.

refer to the boss please!!

I noticed a certain habit/practice of a certain bookshop located at Gajah Berang. It so annoying when the cashier at the counter tells me this everytime I asked her about things. For example:

scenario 1:it was going to rain and I had to go somewhere. Had a novel on my hand and I was not carrying an umbrella that particular time. I love books so much that I didn't want  to get book wet. I head into the bookshop in need of a plastic bag to used to protect in from the rain. I asked for one and she told me in her seriously annoying blank face, " I cannot give you, my boss said so".

I said, " Well is not Saturday right? (referring to no plastic day on Saturday)

"Sorry I cannot give you"

I walked off saying, " Okay, now that's stupid".

scenario 2:

As I am about to pay at the counter

Another lady at the cashier counter told me, " Can you wait for a moment, my boss is not here"

What I would say is that is a very dumb. I think the boss should just handle the bookshop by himself/herself?..and I just need one plastic bag.So ridiculous!!!

Random movie review: The darkest hour

Watching the darkest hour is like walking somewhere aimlessly and without any directions.
The concept of the story is so week, the character doesn't have the chance to develop. The characters are characters that you will not have feelings or invest on. You won't go, " Run dude!! Run, don't die!!". The plot in this movie is so thin and some scenes are ridiculous that it will make you laugh out loud. I don't feel the characters are going through a dark and bleak situation-not sense of suspense. The scenarios that  are played out are to coincidental to be true.
I love science fiction movies, and I could say that World of the World make this movie look even more stupider.

Random book review: The Chamber

Publication date: 1994
Publisher: Doubleday


The FBI recorded almost four hundred bombings in Mississippi from 1964 to 1968, virtually all related to the civil rights movement, and almost all involving black churches or black homes.

In 1967 in Greenville Mississippi, known Klan member Sam Cayhall is accused of bombing the law offices of Jewishung civil rights activists Marvin Kramer, killing kramer's two sons. Cayhall's first trial, with an all-white jury and a Klan rally outside the courtroom, ends in a hung jury; the retrial six month later has the same outcome. 
Twelve years later an ambitious district attorney in Greenville reopens the case. Much has changed since 1967, and this time, with a jury of eight whites and four blacks, Cayhall is convicted. He is transferred to the state penitentiary on death row.
In 1990, in the huge Chicago law firm Kravitz & Bane a young lawyer named Adam Hall asks  to work on the Cayhall case, which the firm has handles on a pro bono basis for years. But the case is all but lost and time is running out: within weeks Sam Cayhall will finally go to the gas chamber. Why is the world would Adam want to get involved?

Another court room legal thriller written, The Chamber touchy subject on the death penalty is an interesting subject matter throughout the whole book. You can help but root for the death row convict in spite of his wrong doings in the past and especially Adam Hall who has to deal with his past life.
I won't spoil much of the plot here, but I would say that the chamber is a good read. As usual, John Grisham is a writer that has the ability to put you right into the action. Not  as gripping as a Time to Kill but the pacing on this one is fluid and good enough for wanting to know what will happen at the end.
At the end of the day, it makes you question this: Why the death penalty? Are we as cruel as the convicted if we do so passing the judgement and killing? Would forgiveness be the better way? and why all that racism at the first place?
Highly recommendable read for its grim subject matter and the way its written.

Words of the day

word: lynching

Lynching is an extrajudicial execution carried out by a mob, often by hanging, but also by burning at the stake or shooting, in order to punish an alleged transgressor, or to intimidate, control, or otherwise manipulate a population of people. It is related to other means of social control that arise in communities, such as charivari, riding the rail, and tarring and feathering. Lynchings have been more frequent in times of social and economic tension, and have often been the means used by the politically dominant population to oppress.

More on lynching:

wolverine vs repo man

A bunch of my friends and I had dinner, last night. There was Tron Legacy on the television as we were eating our dinner. Throughout the whole time we were there ordering out dishes and eyeing on the television, we agreed upon one thing,Tron Legacy had to many flying sequence going on that we got lost in the stories. It was pretty senseless for us.
We met Sherlock Holmes after that- at the tube of course, when we were paying up for the meal at the cach. She pointed at the Dr Watson and said, "Isn't that Hugh Jackman?". 

"No, that is Jude Law!!", I exclaimed.
"No, I am sure that is Hugh Jackman!!", she reiterate to me.
" Do you watch Australia before?", I asked.

"No..." she nodded.

"How about wolverine?" I asked calmly.

" No!! I am sure that is Hugh Jackman.They look the same,don't they? she goes.

" No,they look so different from each other", I replied.

When the repellent gets to close

I was having the severe rash all over my face like two days ago. I have to admit it itched like hell and I got a crazy theory as to why it happened..

this was how the position of the liquid repellent and my sleeping position. Picture are for illustration purposes only( not in anyway the author of this blog)

I think I  radiated myself with a lethal dosage of Ridsect goodnight liquid 90 days (mosquito repellent), for a a good few days(I am assuming). So there comes the itched on the face. Why I said this is because after realizing how close my face was to the thing, I switched it off, and after that, itch stop completely....Do you think that was the reason for the crazy rash and itchiness on my face?

Blast from the past: Analyse

Close your eyes, close your eyes
Breathe the air, out there
We are free, we can be
Wide open

For you I open my eyes
To the beauty I see
We we will pray,
We we will stay
Wide open

Don't analyse
Don't analyse
Don't go that way
Don't lead that way
That would paralyse your evolution

Don't analyse
Don't analyse
Don't go that way
Don't lead that way
That would paralyse your evolution

Lalala this greatest moment
Lalala the strangest day

Lalala. this greatest moment

Fantazise, fantazise
We are open

For you I open my eyes
To the beauty I see
We we will pray
We we will stay ...together

Lalala, this greatest moment
Lalala, the strangest day
Lalala, the greatest love of them all

It's one of those cuts that is so mysterious, it will leave you in  a state of bewilderment?
