Many people know me as a movie fan, especially the action-packed thrillers and war movies.

However, in the past week, I watched two absolutely different and brilliant movies.

Who Watches to the Watchers

I have one question....

Who governs the Islamic enforcers? How can such a a particular groups be allowed to interpret and execute religions without check and balance.

Night Hiking!

It has been a long time since I have hiked. Used to enjoy the hikes in Taman Negara and the climb up Gunung Tahan - that was a million years ago.

Malaysian Wins FIFA Puskas Award

Congratulations to Mohd Faiz Subri for scoring the most beautiful goal of 2016. He is the first Malaysian and first Asian to win the award.

I watched the goal so many times some 10 months and it was simply and amazing kick. Well done Faiz Subri!

Malaysia: Hard Working Officials or Political Drama?

Just wondering.

Over the past months (especially more over the past couple of weeks) we have seen the MACC working over time and extra hard with a series of arrest of corrupt and discovery of millions of ringgits in cash stashed in homes.

I wonder if there is an internal political battle within the ruling party. Each trying to take out one another.  Hmmmm.........

FMU5 - A model for Sustainable Development is Greatly Needed

For the uninitiated, here is a summary:

  • Forest Management Unit 5 encompasses more than 101,000 hectares in central Sabah, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo.  
  • The area’s steep slopes and rich forests provide habitat for the Bornean orangutan and other endangered species and protect watersheds critical to downstream communities.  
  • Conservation groups had been working with the government and the concession holder to set up a concept conservation economy on FMU5, but in October, the rights were acquired by Priceworth, a wood product manufacturing company planning to deforest

Read the details of this interesting place and how Sabah-based conservation NGO Land Empowerment Animals People (LEAP) have been working together to create model for sustainable development and concept conservation economy.

A Prayer to Start the Year

Starting the work year today with the background of the aftermath of the Istanbul attack. Closer home, the continued violence on the Rohingya people, war in the northern Shan and Kachin states. Much closer home, floods in the East coast of the Malaysian Peninsula while moving towards an uncertain economic situation ahead.

A reminded that dukkha still exists, much work needs to be done.

A positive and determined mind is needed, and that's what we will have.

May I be well, may all being be well. May all being be free from all dukkha.

Capitalism and Management Theory Need Reformation

Found this very interesting read on Pulse.

Very good and broad insights into how management and capitalism needs to be transformed.
"Valueism" seem like the direction go towards. Indeed, reformation is sadly needed
