Dying Planet

Yesterday was Blog Action Day. Today this Post.

These are photos of the Parit Falls in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. One prevalent thing you see whenever you travel to Malaysian holiday spots is...Rubbish. A classic case of third world mentality.

The Blog Action Day 2007 is about the Environment. And clearly we are beyond the point of no return. This post is just a small example how Asian countries mainly doesn't care much about the environment. The last bastions of worlds rain forest's and fauna, Asian forests are fast becoming dumping ground for rubbish and disappearing faster than before due to logging, farming and urbanization. Maybe it's time, through coordinated action that we highlight the seriously lacking environmental awareness just at our backyards so that the rest of us will take notice on what's going wrong. There is nowhere else for us to go.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
