are we even safe?

How safe are we? Crime seem to be rampant nowadays and in all forms. Most violent as well. What is happening to our country?! Gone are the days where its pretty safe to take a jog or walk around your neighbourhood or just do some gardening outside your house. Now you have to worry that someone isn't lurking around looking for some quick cash.

Something scary just happened earlier right in front of my house. We were having tea in the living room and I was on the phone with a close family friend. Suddenly comes a red Proton Saga and this tall indian dude walks out smoking. He rings the doorbell. My dad then gets up and goes outside to see whats up. He shows a piece of paper to my dad and ask if he knows where a particular address is. As my dad got closer (thankfully with the gate closed) to look at the paper, he grabs a gold chain around my dad's neck and takes off into the car screaching away. In the car were 2 other indian fellas. As it happened, my dad shouted but what else could he really do?? Luckily when the chain came off, the pendants around it (which were more important) dropped and my dad managed to save them. The chain itself was around 24 grams which I think at todays market rate would be RM1k plus! Arrghh. Thankfully they didn't jump into the house or cause any harm. What a traumatising event. Now I'm worried that they would have targetted our house and might do something even more daring later although my dad thinks otherwise. Why why why? They somehow just decided to stop in front of our house when there are tonnes of others and we were the only ones where the front sliding door was closed. Only thing that you could have seen from outside would be the living room light. No one would have thought we were in or even awake. Sigh.

If anyone comes to your gate nowadays, please take caution. If you do not recognise the person, it would be better to just ignore. You never know what he/she is up to. Arseholes would do anything these days for a quick buck. Bastards!

Hide a big stick behind your front door. I even have one in my car. So when bastards like those come around, don't think, don't panic. Just whack them! Okay?

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
