I am impressed and proud of Americans. The incident of throwing shoe to Bush have increased that particular shoe’s sale.
News: Baydan has recruited an extra 100 staff to meet orders for 300,000 pairs of Model 271 – more than four times the shoe’s normal annual sale – following an outpouring of support for Zaidi’s act, which was intended as a protest, but led to his arrest by Iraqi security forces. (Guardian, UK)
That was a brave act and admired by many. Perhaps Bush should know that he’s going to receive loads of shoes in his Christmas presents.
Seorang guru menyebarkan risalah dari fomca dan cuepacs, kempen tidak berbelanja pada 16 julai. Shall we make a difference? Yes, of course. By doing that, we can show consumer’s power and indirectly affect nation’s economy.
“Inilah masanya pengguna memikirkan semula pola perbelanjaan mereka, termasuk mengenal pasti sama ada terlalu banyak wang dibelanjakan bagi menikmati keperluan atau memenuhi kemahuan mereka,” (Presiden FOMCA, Dato’ N Marimuthu)
Baru je lepas tengok anwar punya debat dengan ahmad shabery, pasal harga minyak. Jadi, semangat berkobar untuk membangunkan ekonomi malaysia (bole ke bertahan semangat nie?). tapi ye, seluruh dunia sedang berjaga-jaga dengan ekonomi. takkan aku tak nak? walaupun tak layak naik atas pentas berucap dan menjadi politikus, tapi sebagai rakyat yang memegang power in the so-called democratic country, that is the least that i can do. oh ye, before i forget, tahniah kpd DSAI kerana berjaya menyampaikan hujah dengan baik dan berada dalam keadaan tenang (selalunya DSAI berucap dengan berapi). quotation yang paling menyentap sekali:
harga minyak iran murah, inflasi naik. harga minyak venezuela murah, inflasi naik. kita ni harga minyak naik, inflasi LAGI NAIK!!
amek kau. kalau tak letak jawatan, tak tau la. bagus juga event macam ni. debat ini berfungsi untuk menyangkal kritikan terhadap kerajaan PL yang tidak mengamalkan keterbukaan media. Komen anwar boleh dibaca di blog peribadi beliau.
oh ye, back to the title. sahutlah cabaran fomca dan cuepacs. kita boleh membaiki keadaan ekonomi negara. sehari je. tak lama. bawa la bekal. henbeg ke baju, beli kemudian. kita cuba. kita tolong ekonomi negara. kita tolong diri kita sendiri agar jangan tergolong sebagai ‘mubazzirin’ (hadis: innal mubazzirina kanu ikhwanus shayatin).
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).
Izzah. The first princess of AB and the ones who are hoped to take care of her siblings. She is featured twice this month’s magazine cover. Nona (with her father) and Seri Dewi Keluarga. I am quite happily bought both magazine and read them. It’s worth every penny.
Nona: It’s RM8.90 but much cheaper than Reader’s Digest still (haha). The size, quality glossy paper, colourful photographs, useful recipes, ideas for bride fashion, ideas for interior design. It’s worth for my library. The edition is especially cover issues for men. 5 men were selected to be interview ( I still don’t get why they interviewed Engku Emran). Other 10 were selected as ’10 lelaki ternama yang anda mahu kenal’. They are not eligible bachelor but my favourites are: Dr. Raja Nazrin Shah and Tengku Ibrahim of Johor (wait, aren’t they princes?).
Seri dewi Keluarga: Priced at RM6, I am keen to look at her family’s picture (Izzah has a very cute healthy daughter! *geram!* *cubit-cubit*). It’s almost worth every pages. Plus, Yatt (model and actress) has modelled 2 fashion lines (bridal and muslimah). I really like her features. Tan and cute. She’s a darling. I almost does not recognize her when she wears tudung. There are a few nice clothes, but unfortunately the editor does not put price tag and where to find it. So Nona wins over SDK (although they are from the same company, Karangkraf).
Hmm. Instead of being interested with the cover page, these magazines has made me to do my homework of wedding, although I am not a going-to-be-bride yet but yeah, it’ll be useful once I am. Haha.
Firstly, I would like to send my deepest gratitude to Malaysians for proving the “people’s power (Makkal sakthi)” in Malaysian 12th general election (GE). Clearly, the government is the people, and the people is the government.
Salam all. FYI, I am on the pearl island. In P41 area. To be exact, N2, Bertam.
Had a very adventerous night last night. I managed to capture some pictures and videos of mat rempits in Penang. Wooo~ Was quite cuak actually, as we, four ladies, were in a very timid kancil car, merely wanting to go out to buy toothbrush. The road was congested. The car honked, and the motorcycle convoy honked continuously. Their motorcycle’s horn is like mamak jual roti you see. Continously. “tak penat ke?”. Wow. Seriously hot and it only happen in four years. It’s Pak Lah’s area you see. Hot seat and hot-bloded youths.
After that, we saw loads of police’s motorcycle and a lonf queue of Merce and other posh cars. We assume it’s Pak Lah or some other important guy. Very² cuak as the police’s hand was giving “ke tepi!” signal. Whew. Adrenaline rush.
Will update with some pictures later Insya Allah. Let’s see who’ll win the game.
Patik memohon agar tuanku mengusulkan memorandum tersebut, suara hati rakyat jelata. Segala luah rasa rakyat di bawah naungan tuanku, segala jerih payah rakyat menempuhi bala tentera FRU, sumpitan air dan gas pemedih mata itu segalanya dilakukan untuk jajahan takluk tuanku. Sekalian rakyat jelata mahu melindungi tanah naungan tuanku. Patik dan rakyat jelata sayangkan tanah ini dan mahukan ia menjadi peninggalan yang terbaik untuk anak cucu kelak. Agar anak cucu kami tidak menyalahkan kami kenapa tanah ini berhamburan dan kucar-kacir. Patik harap tuanku mendengar isi hati rakyat jelata. Ampun tuanku.
