I bought the shoes for quite long oredi.... but I never get the chance to use it. Only today I wore them for a basketball session. I thought I will play alone, so I brought a broom to sweep the court 1st. Its full of small tiny pebbles n sand. I dont want the ball to get spoil so fast. And I intend to sweep it often, so I can do my inline skating properly there.
Every time I use my 2k skate on that surface, the heart will ache once. Actually not once, with every roll the tyres make, the heart will ache.

Not long after I swept the floor, a few youngsters came to play. I guess they are in secondary school age. Form 4 maybe? Wakil sekolah me thinks.
Not long after some casual shootings, they ask me for a 2 on 2. Alright!!!! Not as boring as solo play. Furthermore, I think they should have a bit of skills judging from what they were wearing.

I managed to become the top scorer with my piercing lay ups and unblockable jump shots. Wakakakaka. Summore their most skillful player was effectively rendered useless by my defence.
When the points were at over 20 versus below 10, I asked them when will the game stop. I was told the game stops at 50 points. I was like OMGWTFBBQ!!!!11!!1!oneoneone1!
50 freaking points. I was almost out of my breath at that time. We continued the game and my old age became more apparent. I couldnt keep up with their steps and the points gap became narrower. It was torturous when it was in deuce battle. Like badminton, they decided to make the gap to 2 points in order to win should the points are tied at 48. The deuce battle ended at 60 points!!!!! The moment when I fell on the floor unconscious letting them winning the game. Chamness.

Is this lack of exercise, or really a sign of old age? Wakakakakaka.
I need to exercise more to know.

A trip to down under

Its been long, way too long since I have successfully organise/plan/join a trip. I used to be freaking good in it. High school time, holiday time, uni time, working time. Trips are planned and executed swiftly, be it small or big, few participants or many. All that stopped exactly almost a year ago. All trips planned fail, be it near or far, short or long. Financial or timing was not the issue. Total unwillingness to compromise from one side is enough to bring down any plan. Be it an hour drive away. So many times....actually all the time.

Now the option is so aplenty!!! I can go by plane, train or bus. I am open to ALL suggestions, so its not surprising so many trips are successes. And even more surprisingly, all the failures for the past many plans.
Now I could've booked the cheap tix to fly over -> surprisingly available since Im going over the very next week. But the lady suggested the bus. Hmm, why not? Its still comfy since we will be taking the more "luxurious" one.

Lets Gaga!!!

The Irrelevant Silent Majority

A German's View Of Islam

This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist
situation I have ever read. His references to past history are
accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth
the read. The author of this email is said to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay,
a well known and well respected psychiatrist.

A German's View on Islam

A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to
World War II, owned a number of large industries and
estates. When asked how many German people were true
Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward
fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said,
'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many
more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just
thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the
majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then,
before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost
control, and the end of the world had come. My family
lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp
and the Allies destroyed my factories.'

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking
heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that
the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in
peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true,
it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff,
meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow
diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the
globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment
in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the
fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars
worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically
slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa
and are gradually taking over the entire continent in
an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead,
murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over
mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously
spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and
homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young
to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful
majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just
wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists
were responsible for the murder of about 20 million
people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

China's huge population was peaceful as well, but
Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70
million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II
was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and
slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy
of killing that included the systematic murder of 12
million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword,
shovel, and bayonet.

And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into
butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of
Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt,
yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most
basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims
have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they
don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany,
they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own
them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans,Japanese,Chinese,Russians,
Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians,
Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have
died because the peaceful majority did not speak up
until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay
attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics
who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and
just deletes this email without sending it on, is
contributing to the passiveness that allows the
problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send
this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands,
world wide, read this and think about it, and send it
on - before it's too late.
