Hari ini adalah hari ke3 penulis tidak bekerja. Opted to relax and stay at home. BUT MIND you, penulis bukanlah seperti seorang lepasan universiti yang masih tidak dapat mencari kerja yang decent selepas menamatkan pengajian dari Universiti.

Penulis memilih untuk relaks selepas hampir 3 tahun penulis bekerja semenjak menamatkan pengajian dan tidak pernah sekalipun relaks dalam erti relaks yang sebenar.

So, I guess I deserved to have a good break! Not much I can say about this period of relaxation except that yesterday I went for a medical checkup, which is a compulsory procedure before I join KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu, Jose!). It was really a pain in the a** experience! Bayangkan penulis terpaksa strip off pakaian penulis dan tubuh diperiksa oleh seorang doktor wanita!

Sekarang baru penulis rasa apa yang dirasakan oleh wanita yang telah disangkakan sebagai wanita dari China itu! CUma penulis bernasib baik tidak dipaksa untuk melakukan ear squatting oleh doktor itu!

Dan bertambah nasib ba…

Ministry Lifts Ban On Export Of Monkeys

Ministry Lifts Ban On Export Of Monkeys PUTRAJAYA, Aug 17 (Bernama) -- Malaysia has lifted the ban on the export of long-tailed macaques, better known as long-tailed monkeys, in an effort to reduce the population of these primates in urban areas, Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid announced Friday.

"The cabinet has decided to lift the ban which was imposed in 1984 on the capture and export of this type of monkeys. This is because we want to reduce the number of long-tailed monkeys in urban areas.

"These monkeys create havoc in urban areas, not only stealing food from houses but also attacking people, and this is a cause for worry. The lifting of the ban is only for peninsular Malaysia and does not cover Sabah and Sarawak," he told a news conference at his office here.

He said the ministry had done a non-detrimental study before lifting the ban and it had been decided that only monkeys in urban areas be caught and exported.

From the study, …

Laws in CyberspaceBy BHAG SINGHBloggers are not above the law. They can be sued or prosecuted, like anyone else.BLOGGERS are sometimes accused of telling lies and described as rumour-mongers who can cause disharmony amongst the people and therefore cause damage to the country. To some people, it appears that there are no laws in cyber space and that the law of the jungle prevails. This is far from the truth because bloggers are certainly not above the law. However, the laws that govern cyber space are like existing conventional laws, with some weaknesses which create difficulties in taking action against a perceived offender.Even without the Internet, a person may make copies of offensive material and post it to numerous people without disclosing who the sender is. It may not be possible to immediately know who the author or sender is.The same applies to bloggers who choose to remain anonymous. In such a situation, at best, one can only find out where the offensive content…

We are the society of monkeys, not? We are being bred and fed with unsuccessful dreams,
The monkeys of time flies, Across the universe of emotion,
They are bound to be brought back again to this world, per-se, Please acknowledge the monkey's star, Please stand up among the monkeys,
We are not the monkeys of deception, You can leave but you will never lost in the world of monkeys,
The girl’s dream of having a monkey as her hero, Not her fault,
Everybody are born with a monkey inside their soul, They tend to lured out the monkey side of them,
Definition of live depend much on the monkey, But we are not the monkey of live,
We were born separately, And thank God we came from the same seed,
The monkey shall remain as the golden monkey, HE shall seek the kingdom of monkey soon..
God bless the “monkey”, Only when he became a human being…

Jaip drops case against nightclub performer IPOH: The Perak Religious Department (Jaip) has dropped the case against singer Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin for allegedly dressing sexily and encouraging vice by performing at a nightclub. The 22-year-old singer said the department reached the decision after a meeting on Saturday. “They decided to close the case because they did not have enough evidence to press charges,” said Siti Noor Idayu. During the meeting, she said, the department officers advised her to dress properly in future performances. However, the performer said she would continue to dress the way she always had. “I don’t think the clothes that I wear are revealing or sexy. “It’s not like I was wearing a two-piece (bikini). I still know what I can and cannot do,” she said yesterday. The department detained Siti Noor Idayu and several others during a raid at a nightclub in Tambun on July 3. Efforts to reach the department for comment failed.

Not all bloggers are stupid, says Zam KUALA LUMPUR: Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin says not all bloggers are stupid as some of them are informative, knowledgeable and disseminate positive views on current issues. The ones that were mostly goblok (stupid, in Indonesian) were political bloggers who float rumours and create hatred among the people, he said yesterday. He said political bloggers “blatantly abused the freedom of the Internet.” “Readers of these blogs read them to pass time and for fun, akin to reading a ghost story. The people must be able to distinguish between goblok bloggers and bloggers,” he added.(The Star - 6 August 2007)By Hesmel Faznee Faisal.

It's kind of weird to get this kind of statement from the Minister of Information. Previously, some bloggers are being bombarded with call names such as "stupid", "liars", "jobless" and the like. But now, the Minister of Information is saying that not all bloggers are s…

Penulis memohon maaf. Maaf yang teramat sangat. Ini kerana blog Bacalah yang sehingga kini mencatatkan jumlah pelawat sekitar 300 hits (Jose, jangan mimpilah blog ini akan mampu mencatatkan jumlah lebih dari 2,000,000 hits!!) telah lama tidak dikemaskinikan. I am terribly sorry. I couldn’t help it. I am very busy and my time was quite tied up with my new job and my new responsibilities. Working as an Operation Executive (bertanggungjawab ke atas pantauan berita dan juga blog – how ironic!) at CMCF doesn’t give a leisure for me to update my Bacalah blog. Cuma hari ini penulis tersentak. Tersentak sedikit kerana semasa penulis membuat “pemeriksaaan” ke atas website-website di Malaysia, penulis terlintas untuk melawat website ini. Penulis tidak mahu menamakan website ini. Cuma pinta penulis, silalah lawati ke link di atas. Apa yang memeranjatkan di sini ialah, website ini dikatakan sebuah website para penyokong sebuah parti yang ter…
