Bloodstained surgical gloves in pillows?

As reported in China Press yesterday, a pillow which was bought at a promotional price of slightly over RM10.00 from a hypermarket was producing a fishy smell.

Suspecting it was caused by the buyer's child's urine on the pillow, it was later found that the pillow also had a lump.

Being more curious, she operated it and found a lot of recycled materials, includes a bloodstained surgical gloves!

Who is to be blamed actually; The Manufacturer or the Seller?

I'd like to quote my wife saying, "Price never lied".

I have always been comparing prices when buying things from the supermarkets. There are expensive supermarkets and there are actually cheaper supermarkets. I think you guys knew which is cheaper and which is more expensive.

I'm a regular user of Downy, the cloth softener. When it was first introduced, I find it very nice. The liquid was thick and a little consumption is enough.

After a while, I went to the hypermarket which advertise cheaper price for Downy and buy another bottle to top up my finished bottle at home.

When I opened it, how surprised I was to find the liquid was very thin, seems like it has been added with water or something else.

So I thought the manufacturer did that on purpose to attract customers at initial stage and sell lower quality product in the end, but when I went to the shop that I initially bought Downy with a slightly higher price, the quality as same as the first time I bought it.

I keep buying it from the shop which sells it slightly more expensive in price since then.

Not jumping into conclusion right here, but is there a possibility that these hypermarkets are able to sell a lot cheaper by reprocessing other manufacturer's product and try to make it cheaper by putting in something else into the product?

No wonder they can sell a lot cheaper!

Time to fire back...!

I'm getting really emotional for the last few days.

All this while, I was in doubt that the Kelantanese Sultanate family would do such a horrible things towards Manohara, the materialistic girl from Jakarta.

I keep am telling that to my wife.

Manohara's mother, claimed that her daughter was suffering from tortures from the husband, who happened to be related to the Kelantanese Sultanate family. Not only that, she told the media that she was disallowed to see her own daughter and was stopped by the Royal Family to come to see her daughter.

All sort of tortures, was being told to the media. Siapa tak kesian?

Worse, Indonesians were like losing their mind and started to despise the Malaysian Govt for sitting still on the issue. Indonesian Media were getting so emotional, and the news were not only being published in the gossip programmes, it has even been the focus on the prime news.

Indonesian Media, as we all know, will always bash the Malaysian govt for every issues, especially those with regards to their people in this country.

This time, they have gone overboard, by insulting the Sultanate family, the Malaysian govt and hurting the feeling of Malaysians, by raising the anger of the Indonesian people with this false news of incidents of Manohara being abused.

Indonesian people had been cursing and swearing the Malaysians for remaining in silence on Manohara's abusal. Later on, they relate the ol same ol same stories like Nirmala Bonat and so on. Malaysia has never been kind to them.

Worse, the thing that I hate most is, when my wife's friends/relatives jokingly warn her to be careful not to be treated like how Manohara is getting from the Royal family. I knew, as they openly put these remarks on my wife's facebook wall. What are they thinking?

Even though they're joking, it reflects how they actually look upon us.

In the earlier stage of my relationship with my wife, all her friends and relatives were giving negative comments like, 'Koq nanti dijadiin Tekawe (TKW)', 'Orang Malay itu bisa dipercaya ngga?','Tau kan, kenapa Malaysia dipanggil Malingsia? Ga usahlah...' and so many other bad remarks, not about me, but about Malaysians in general.

FYI, TKW means 'Tenaga Kerja Wanita'. Maling means, pencurik.

And some of those bad remarks even came from her own close aunt's mouth. Her officemates repeatedly giving her free consultation at her desks over the decision to marry me. Her siblings giving cynical remarks like, 'Kalau mau kawin tu tak apa, tapi jangan dengan orang yang di seberang tu. Tah betul tah tidak orang Malaysia ni..'

It shows, how bad they thought of us Malaysians.

Well, I cannot blame them as it was actually the Media plays the big role in actually spreading out the false information on us Malaysians. Sometimes, i was wondering, do they use common sense while writing out false & sensitive issues & information, especially on the neighboring countries like Malaysian? Do they need to be bribed not to foul-mouth Malaysians? Come on Indonesia!!!

Indonesians in Malaysia gave us more headache by indulging in more and more troubles, day by day, with all kind of methods. Robberies, pukau, rape and so many more cases ever, but have we ever bad mouth the Indonesian Govt? Or it's people?

NO!

Because we have common sense. We know, devillish act is by individual, not by the govt, or not by community.

Does that means that the Indonesian Media do not have common sense? I'm sure they'll be incredibly mad on this comment but have they ever, thought for a minute before actually write something that will actually hurt other people's feeling?

Di manakah otak mereka pada waktu ketika itu? Adakah otak mereka di lutut?

Now, Manohara successfully escaped from the Kelantanese Royal family and managed to get back home with her mom. They are doing TV shows, on that issues.

But, Manohara refused to go for checkups, and refused questioning by the police.

It seems like Manohara is trying to hide something isn't she?

Now, Indonesian Media malu sendiri. Rakyat Indonesia juga kini malu sendiri setelah puas mengutuk Malaysia sewenang2nya.

This is just about some people getting married. Manohara may want to kikis duit Tengku Fakhry only.

Saya?

Only god knows the truth.

On Photography

It seems like everyone is into photography right now. I have a nephew from far cousin who has just started working, who also just bought a Sony DSLR (which was not so wise decision though).

He also has a younger brother, who had just finished schooling with quite a knowledge of photography. As yesterday I was attending a relative's wedding in Kota Tinggi Johor, I met with these people and amazed with their interest.

It seems like DSLR is no longer being alienated like last time. Gadget people look at it as a necessity. With the latest development of which the Camera manufacturers started to release cheap cameras, everyone may now claim themselves a photography photographers.

And these people started to sell their services cheaply.

And for some people, who will just say yes for as long as they can have a set of pictures for their wedding, they will sign up the cheap photography package with these people.

Even though these people have less or very minimal knowledge on the wedding photography, given Adobe photoshop and all those tools, they're now a wedding photographer already.

Photographers like me will lose so many jobs, but it's okay. I'm fine with that but price would not lie to you. You'll be getting what you're paying.

And I've heard some elder photographers was complaining about other Top photographers who were charging so much but their picture is not that favourable to him.

Photography likings is very personal. As for myself, I'd prefer pictures with the elements that strengthen the image. There are so many, but as long s the picture is fine, nice to the eyes and very the soothing, it's acceptable and as long as the Art value is there, it's still a nice image.

People always asked me about editing. I always tell them, editing is not necessary if you've already a very good job with your camera. Sharpening is not needed as blur will also gives you some sense of art if it was done tactically.

First things first, if you really into photography, the easiest way to learn is to look in the forums. Or buy books.

But camera techniques, is something you have to learn in person. You can either go to Nikonian Academy or any personal photographers for it; given if you're lucky enough.

Good, nice & friendly forum would be photomalaysia.com but less good pictures there. Shutterasia would be flooded with a lot of nice and pro-looking images but beware of the people; they're not so friendly especially the moderators!

Well, photography is still, very abstract! It lies in the eye of the beholder.
