More info (click lah!): How can fuel price hike?

Haha. Pasal PL turun takhta tu, ramalan melawak je. Mane la tau beta hebat menjadi nujum.

Kata aritu tanak naik? Apa dah jadi dengan janji (23/04/2008)?

I would be pleased if Shahrir Samad can reply here.

IMHO, mostly, the Ayrabs (that’s how the orang putih pronounce it) are controlling the economic and political power. Not the US. If they don’t give up and fighting in the noble spirit, I know the fact that the world would be a better place and no more fuel hike. Yeay!! Just look at the graph, do we Malaysians have anything to do with it? We are the victims of situation (sangat direct translation neh).

ESQ: A new life

Many successful CEOs, executive managers, businessman, etc took ESQ course and change their life. ESQ (Emotional Spiritual Quotient) is not a new thing. It’s just that we’ve forgotten about it. It’s already been created 1400 years ago. ESQ is for everyone and it takes place globally. Regardless what religion you are. ESQ is a new way of life. Imagine how great these people. They even gave talk to the professors at Oxford University. (And there are numerous fascinating numbers and statistics being shown yesterday but I failed to stuff my head with everything–I’m just a weak human 🙁 ). The numbers of alumni members simply is getting bigger, globally. Their alumni members is not common people. Like I said, businessman, rich and famous intelligent people. The company who wants to do staff training and improve human resources send the staffs to ESQ talks. And I’m not talking crap. There are thousands people gave good testimonial about ESQ and probably now the number have reached millions.

ESQ is the new trend (Among elites and rich people for this time being). Why do we need ESQ? We only realise this when at the end of the day, we don’t know why we accumulate our properties, dollars and so forth. We only realise the need of ESQ in our life, then there are many intelligent people give up easily as they do not know what’s the purpose they are being created.

A glimpse from yesterday’s presentation: The Golden Gate Bridge in the US, is world’s finest architecture, but on January 2008, Mr. Arry went there and tell us the tragic story of the bridge. The numbers of suicide was being kept from the public, however, as the numbers reached 10K, the government decided to put high fence, to prevent people from jumping from the Golden Gate. Counselling line was also being placed on the bridge, hoping to give hope for losers (I call them losers because they quit from life). It’s no longer be the symbol of the greatness of United States. They are considered successful nation, but how many lead life peacefully and happily?


Yesterday, IPBA had ESQ preview and I don’t have to pay for it. I was so excited to come because I know it costs me 1K++ if I want to join it. (I was interested with ESQ since I watched the videos in Plymouth). So yeah, Mr Firdaus Djambri, gave talk and he is funny. Probably due to language differences (Malaysian Malay language and Indonesia’s), there are some stuffs that people don’t understand. But yeah, thanks to my exposure to Indonesian sinetron and movies, his jokes are understandable. Oh, did I tell you he’s cute? His Indonesian accent as well. Never heard such enthusiastic talk, for 22 years. He doesn’t give up although the crowd shows boring faces.

But what I had yesterday was only a glimpse of it (ESQ preview). Just a sneek peek and to know how great it is, is to taste it. So people, I highly encourage you to go to ESQ talks and experience a better life after that. May Allah bless the efforts of ESQ trainers and Insya Allah, we can make this world a better place and lead a peaceful life in this world and hereafter.

So tomorrow (16 Feb) they are going to conduct a session for university students and they give a very very good offer. You only pay RM 550 once and you can join the alumni and attend the talks as many as you want for the rest of your life. Wow. Very attempting offer but not for this time being 🙁

Otai Vs McD

I craved for burger, as I don’t have many chance to eat it while I was in Plymouth. Is it worth it to wait for 2 years? (I ate a lot of McD before I went to the UK). Thus, I am comparing America’s most famous burger and Malaysia’s .

1- Cleanliness: Otai burger sellers handle the burgers and utensils with high level hygiene. Anywhere. It is proven by others as well (you see, after I promote it to people, I ask their reflection/feedback as well). While for McDonald, (I had a few trips and sometimes accompanying people) I am totally frustrated with the uncleanliness. Not just in Lumut, in KL as well. So the basic requirement for a food franchise, hygiene, wins by Otai.

2- Quality: McD burgers used to be the tastiest, but nowadays, the fries are overcooked. The burger size is shrinking. Big Mac’s bread is so thin to the extent once you hold it, it can tear apart easily. Otai burger’s taste is undoubtfully great. The meat is cooked with perfect timing. The taste is great. Taste it by yourself, then you’ll believe me.

3- Price: Last time, it was worth to spend RM10 at McDonald. Bak kata orang, kenyang nak mati. But now, I don’t think so. Otai burger’s price is a bit expensive than normal burger price (I mean, gerai burger like Ramly), but it never exceed 4 ringgit per burger, although the taste is priceless.

4- Reputation: McD has established worldwide, but there are a few controversial legal actions taken against them. Nowadays, my impression for McD is getting worse. For Otai, its successful story has captured by local Malaysian media. Many has found out that its’ great taste and reputation. I belive Otai’s chain will be larger and stronger in the future if they keep up their reputation, principles and the recipe.

Verdict: Otai wins, 4-0. As I reached Malaysia, I was eager to taste my favourite McD burger. However, I was disappointed. It’s not just me. My family members wish not to step into the restaurant anymore (we had really bad experience you see). Some of my friends agree with my points (as stated above). So, feed yourself better food because you deserve to eat good and your money should be spent on good food.

PS: You are what you eat.
