Scream Park Fiasco.


Hello, READERS! Yes it's been so long and I promise you it's worth it because I've been loading up on stories. But unfortunately I can't exactly stuff them all here, and also I believe I've spoken briefly about them in the past through Facebook and such.

Anyway, let's move on. The reason I named this post as such is because of this strange but funny incident that happened in Sunway Lagoon. It was in this place called Scream Park and as the name goes, people who enter are bound to scream, whether it was fake (those poor people who work as ghosts and monsters there deserve a little scream, no?) or real. 

So we entered the place and we were watching this creepy video. I was sorta holding on to a friend and he was holding on to my wrists. Suddenly these hordes of monsters and ghosts turn up from the shadows and behind the curtains and divided the group. Now, it was dark you see so I haven't a clue who was scaring who, who was screaming what, who was screaming at what, I dunno... I just went with the crowd, feeling around in the dark.

We came to this opening where there was a little lighting. So I was a tad relieved and decided to say something to my friend who was still holding my wrist.

"Finally, some light... Some ride huh? Dude?"

I turn to him and.... it wasn't my friend holding on to me. No, it wasn't even a ghost or ghoul or whatever. It was this random Malay dude holding on to me!! I just stood there staring at him for the longest time and he was unaware of who he was holding on to, bless him. So I said to him:
"Eh dude, you hantu kat sini ya?"
"Oh bukan, I bukan hantu!"
"Then let go lah!"

But here's the thing. He wouldn't let go! I was shaking my hands and he just held on, transfixed from fear or something. So I was like, " - this is getting me no where" and just dragged him along with me till I found my posse of friends and took him along.

Eventually he realised he was holding onto a stranger and he let go frantically and dashed off to find his friends. I found my friends too and I told them what happened. 

It was basically the joke of the day!

Christian As The Official Religion In Malaysia?!

Dear readers,

Do you know what happened, recently on a sensitive issue in Malaysia? Even if you do know, I would have to tell since many Malaysian themselves do not read the paper enough! =P

A group of people in Penang has been accused of trying to make Christianity as the official religion in Malaysia. However that is untrue. Islam has been agreed to the the official religion since the independence of Malaysia.

The main problem now is not the problem mentioned above, but politicians like Hishammudin, home minister (a ministerial position who's in charge of the security of the country) do not check the validity of the accusation instead, he wants to capture those responsible for it.

Disappointed again.......

(An extract taken from Malaysia Kini)

"As a Muslim, I am not bothered whether the PM is a Muslim or not. The constitution protects Islam as the official religion of the country and the monarchy as guardian of Islam in Malaysia.

If a non-Muslim can be proven capable to lead the country, why not? Look at many countries around the world where capable leaders are not from the majority race but instead from minority race.

It is Umno which is going all out to protect the Umnoputras to maintain political stronghold over the country to enrich its cronies. Other Malays not of the Umnoputras do not benefit or even if they do, are given the remnants that trickle down to them.

All these talks about Umno protecting Malay rights or Islam is a bunch of crap. I am apolitical but I trust PAS more than Umno to look after the interest of the Malays and Islam. Umno is more interested in enriching their cronies and stirring up racial and religious issues to maintain their power."
