"The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is, 
that one often comes from a strong will
and the other from a strong won't."

"Tofi" concept Yatch

Dad's love

Saw this lovely scene at Teluk Ketapang, K.trgnu. A dad was sitting on a swing with his kid on his lap. I think he was overjoyed as he swing way up high and went even left and right. But they are enjoying it alright, with giggles and laughters now and then. 

And if you are observant enough, you will noticed that out of 4 swings, only 1 exists now.

So, moral of the story:

For dads, love your kids like this dad does. 
Bring them out, enjoy the sunshine, the cold breezes of cameron, share the laughters, and let your kids know that they can forever count on you for anything.

For the authorities, please, provide sturdier equipments for these dads to show their love. LOL

Today's giving

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. 
 It might be the only sunshine he sees all day. 

 ~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Kami boleh cakap org puteh!

Malaysia boleh! Although there's much (deserved) grumbling about our national English standards, it happens that we're actually in the first spot for English proficiency in the Asia region for countries where English is not the mother tongue.

Seoul (The Korea Herald/ANN) - South Korea ranked third out of Asian nations according to an English Proficiency Index announced on March 30 by Education First, a global education center. Go here for the full rankings.

Korea, with an overall ranking of 13th, overtook Japan (at 14th) and Taiwan at (25th).

From 2007 to 2009, Education First conducted online English tests on 2.3 million working adults all from over the world. English proficiency was tested in four categories - grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening.

Among Asian countries, Korea's 54.19 points followed only Malaysia (9th) with 55.54 points and Hong Kong (12th) with 54.44 points. Koreans' English proficiency can be considered relatively high considering that Korea's official language is not English. Malaysia and Hong Kong, however, use English as one of their official languages.

The overall English proficiency of an average Korean adult also rated “above average." South Korea placed among the top tier nations by ranking 13 out of 44 non-native countries.

Newspaper turning Hornbills into Toucans, lol..talking about professionalism..

Was flipping through a local newspaper this morning, and I came across this article above.

Immediately the image of the bird strikes me. I'm not a huge fan of birds, but since I at least love to flip through the thick and dusty encyclopedia,  I was like "what is the picture of a Toucan doing in Malaysia's news?"

Scanned through the headline, only to realize that they are actually trying to mean the case of the 5 soldiers slaughtering hornbill happened just a few days ago. Yet, this newspaper company wrongly labeled "burung enggang" or Hornbill for a Toucan. LOL.

Ask my 10 years old niece and nephew and they can tell you the bird in the picture above is a typical Toucan.  And you labeled it as Hornbill? Just go and google burung enggang or hornbill or even have the curiosity to read through the wikipedia page which you copied from and you will find that the Hornbills and Toucans are even from different Order, and Hornbills fall in the family of Bucerotidae while Toucans are from the family Ramphastidae. 

This reflects how easily news can be published in our local newspapers. Millions of people reads the newspaper everyday, if even world-known facts like this can be incorrectly printed out, who knows how much truth can there be beyond all those words and pictures?

Sorry, was kinda agitated when talking about an innocent beauty of nature just fell and returned to earth earlier that it should be. And here the least one can do is put an accurate picture of that poor Hornbill, instead of an unrelated Toucan, LOL. It's not like Hornbills live in Antartica and we seldom heard of them.

For those of you who is still blur,

Cry of the Hornbill

Cry of the Hornbill

When the skies were still brilliant blue
and myriads of stars adorning the night,
When trees were still leafy green
and fruits were abundant for all to dine.

It was a tale passed down from time to time.
Only generations passed, and we have seen its worse.
There were once, thousands of us,
and now I can barely spot another me.

Trees are crumbling down each day, 
animals being hunted down or chased away,
I flew from trunk to trunk,
 just hoping to see another day.

Foods are scarce, home are even hard to find.
I'm fortunate to find a nest, 
make it comfy, to shelter from the violent world
for my partner and my future generations.

Sometimes, even at night I dream of the sound 
of the heart-tearing chainsaw playing on and on.
Sometimes, I was shock from sleep,
just to find my shelter going down in steep.

But I made it through each day,
I don't know how, but I succeeded anyway.
I've heard that we hornbills symbolized strength,
but for me, strength is all I have to live another May.

Some hunt us for our feathers and beaks,
some shot us down just to have a meal to eat,
some hunt us as recreation and fun,
some hunt us, just for the glory of it.

And I thought, I would have another day.
Just hoping through looking for food,
and suddenly all I heard, 
was a gunshot and flame.

I tried to fly but I felt to the ground,
I turned my head around and saw,
five young men, decent enough I thought
to at least spare me some living grounds.

But soon I saw the shimmering knife,
instantly I knew, my time is near if I can't fly.
I hovered and flapped, kicked and cried,
with all my might, but regardless, they got me tied.

With tears running down, I say my goodbyes.
Goodbye to my partner and my newborn chicks,
within a sealed wall in a huge tree trunk,
waiting for me to fetch home some food and supplies.

With me gone, my chicks wouldn't made it through,
my partner too, cause she's too weak and the wall's too thick.
I wiped my last tears, for I have to die,
 I'm sorry, to all the lives that have to go along.

With blood gushing out relentlessly, 
I made a last cry, 
so loud, it could reach the sky.

A flash came through,
and my bloodstained body,
was immortalized.

The world's best underwater photographs of 2010: Our World Underwater and Deep Indonesia

This picture gallery showcases some of the year's best underwater photography as chosen by the judges of two major competitions - the Our World Under Water competition and the fourth annual Deep Indonesia International underwater photo competitionPrizes for the events were worth over $120,000 (£74,000). The two competitions attracted over 5,000 entries and winners were picked from 20 countries across the world.

"Underwater Sadness" by Ramon Dominguez - a sea turtle caught in a net in the Sea of Cortez , Mexico

A lonely diver traversing a cavernous underwater crack scooped the 2010 Deep Indonesia photography competition. The picture was taken by 45-year-old professional photographer Magnus Lundgren from Sweden as he was guided though the fissure in Thingvellir Lake , Iceland.

Stephen Holinski of Canada took Gold in the compact cameras category for his picture of a mantis shrimp with eggs.

Briton, John Hill, took the Silver award in the compact cameras category for his action-packed image taken from the heart of a school of silver coated jackfish. An amateur underwater photographer, he was diving off Sipadan Island in East Borneo, Malaysia during September 2009 as part of a year he spent travelling south-east Asia with his girlfriend, Jenny. 

Other award winning pictures included a dramatic picture of a leopard seal snapping its jaws directly at the lens of Bartosz Strozynski, landing him the gold award for animal behaviour. "I was playing with the seal," said 35 year-old Bartosz from Poznan in Poland . "They are curious and they do try to test you in the water. This one saw his reflection in my lens and must have thought I was another leopard seal. So she displayed her teeth as a warning."

David Barrio, 37, from Spain won Best in Show in the Our World Underwater competition for this haunting image of his girlfriend slowly rising through a cabin of a deep sea wreck off the coast of southern Gran Canaria.

Luc Eeckhaut of Belgium won Gold in the Macro Unrestricted category for his image, "Froggy and Shrimpfish", showing a frogfish and some shrimpfish in Indonesia.
