You will need to type the email address. My suggestion is to open a Notepad file, minimise both this page as well as the Notepad file and position them such that you can see both at the same time. While looking the the graphic email address, type the email address into Notepad, copy-paste into the To: field in you email COMPOSE form and send message, digital photo, etc. If you are not happy with what I put up, it will be taken down immediately.

Sweetened Condensed Milk Present for MP

I found out from Tony Pua's blog and The Nut Graph that my MP (Member of Parliament of PJ Utara) has a sweet tooth for sweetened condensed milk which unfortunately is no longer available in Malaysia because of some misguided controlled price policies. So here is an (hopefully) environmentally friendly present of a can of digital Panda brand sweetened condensed milk for Tony Pua, MP for PJ Utara:

Panda brand sweetened condensed milk

I am pretty sure that there are no melamine in this digital can of Panda brand sweetened condensed milk despite the fact that it may have originated from China.

Environmentally friendly online shopping solutions

Rather than go shopping for gifts in bricks and mortar retail outlets, many has opted for environmentally friendly online shopping. If you are operating a brick and mortar gift retail outlet, it would be wise for you to getting your products offering online as this trend is likely to increase in the future as the price of petrol goes ever higher. There is no way for the price to go except up.

Now if you are a merchant offering gift items for sale online, you would have to provide a convenient and environmentally way for payment to be made. What could be more convenient than merchant account provider which provides Website Payment Processing Setup & Solutions together with Credit Card Processing Equipment?

Any online merchant of gift items must seriously of ways to facilitate easy and convenient way of online payments, failing which customers will disappear like vapors into the air.

Canadian Member of Parliament "medal" for Terry Glavin

We had the most amazing Malaysian General Election this year. The arrogant Barisan Nasional controlled the Malaysian mainstream mass media so well that they even believed their own propaganda, the shit poured out from the press etc. that no one else will believe except themselves. That lulled them into such a sense of complacency they almost lost the election and now control the Malaysian Parliament minus their much abused two-third majority. They also lost control of the richest and most populous states in Malaysia and DAP (Democratic Action Party) got their prize Penang. They called it a Malaysian political tsunami.

Wish Terry Glavin was a Malaysian, then we can send him as a Member of Parliament to dissect the behavior of our idiotic Barisan Nasional Members of Parliament. Unfortunately Terry Glavin is only a very highly politically aware Canadian, and I can only help put Terry Glavin as a Member of Parliament of the Canadian Parliament by putting more active links to Terry Glavin's blog

Well, here is my birthday gift to Terry Glavin, hopefully the medal for a Canadian Member of Parliament this 20th May:

Happy birthday Terry!!!!!!! "Selamat menyambut Hari Jadi" our version.

Wonder when Terry going to do an Terry's Eye on Malaysia.

Just in case the owners of the 2 photos think I am using their photos to defame others, may I add this post is a result of someone who called me a "nut case" and this is my way of answering such "defamation" (of me). I love nuts. In fact, if I could, I would eat more of them for they are delicious, provides lots of good nutrition and if you eat them, help keep you healthy.

Birthday present for Sarah: Secretary bird

Ha, this morning 5.36am was the very first time I learned that there is such a thing as "Secretary Bird" (Wikipedia: Secretary Bird). More about that later, but first let me wish Sarah a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and hope she gets a

Secretary Bird

Photo of Secretary Bird belong to Brian Scott

Secretary Bird to assist her with her duties.

Secretary Bird's Facts and Figures

The scientific name for Secretary Bird is Sagittarius serpentarius. It is a large, mostly terrestrial (mostly land-based) bird of prey (birds that eat other birds or animals) found all over Africa. Its habitat is the open savannas of the sub-Sahara (desert). The Secretary Bird is used in the official emblem of 2 African countries - Sudan and South Africa. The Secretary Bird is part of the order of Falconiformes, it is different enough from others like the kites, buzzards, vultures, and harriers that it is put into its own order "Sagittariidae".

Its height is about 4 feet (1.3 meter) which makes the Secretary Bird almost as tall as a grown human. Hah, I can imagine the Secretary Bird sitting next to Sarah assisting her in her daily work.

Happy birthday Sarah. May you have a Secretary Bird for your birthday to assist you in your work which hopefully will lighten your burden.

Solar-baked bread birthday present for Mr. Fam

Hi Fam,

Happy birthday. Hope you enjoy this yummy solar-baked bread. It is done without having to burn gas or coal nor use electricity, all of which generate eventually green house gases which, in addition to adding to air pollution, also lead to global warming.

Sonia Randhawa, a Malaysian and prime mover behind Center of Independent Journalism, have been working hard for the FOI (Freedom of Information) Act to be adopted by Malaysia, may now have better chances of her and her NGO (non-Government Organization)'s objective coming to pass before her birthday. Let us hope that is will be Sonia Randhawa's birthday gift (below):

FOI (Freedom of Information) Act

Kelantan, Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor is now under non-Barisan's parties control (perhaps Barisan Harapan Rakyat) and hopefully will implement the Freedom of Information Act for these 5 states of Malaysia. Wow, I would like that for my birthday. Don't know about Sonia Randhawa.

Environmentally friendly present (gift) for my friends

I received a message with an image of a circle of friends from a close friend (plus relative) via Facebook who asked that if I consider her a friend, to send it back. Only problem is, I am a Facebook dummy. I don't know how to send this back to her. So I am going to do the next best thing. I am going to upload the image of the circle of friends in this post and send her the post URL to assure her that not only do I consider her a friend, but a very close friend:

circle of friends

However, I want to go one step further, for after all, what are friends for. I am going to give all my friends an environmentally friendly present (all of us should be environmentally aware as what we do today is going to affect our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren....) and I am sure we want to leave them a nice earth to live in, not a scorched earth:

rose flower for my friends

Now I received the first "if you consider me your friend..." from those who likely love flowers. From what I see in Facebook, it may not be the last, and what about those who don't want flowers? Here is an alternative:

Hope you guys like it. There is an appropriate message on the T-shirt. If you are still single, please take it as a romantic hint.

Apology, followed by a kiss and make up meal as a present

Digital apology

Malaysia need to reduce the two-third majority of the ruling Barisan who have abused the trust and mandate give to them by amending some 40 times with each amendments being multi-amendments. Now we need to work hard to correct our mistake and take away the two-third majority of the rullng Barisan in the next Malaysian election which will be soon. I joined a group whose objective is to get to know our Member of Parliaments, or to me, more accurately, the likely candidates for the next election. The opposition is working very hard to cooperate and work out some arrangement to avoid 3 corner contests and split the opposition votes. I was thus very upset when a proposal to consider an Independent if no suitable candidate from the opposition could be found. In the limited time we have, there is just no way we can decide on a candidate to put up for election, gather the funds for the election campaigns, get the campaigning team organized, train the polling, counting and canvasing agents, set up the logistics and a whole lot more. Going for the Independent candidate option is just going to do the Barisan a favor, and I absolutely cannot support it at this moment. Thus when I got a reply to a request for volunteers for polling and counting agents training, I did not read the message properly and made some caustic remarks. I missed the last part of the message which is that the poster Nathan attended the polling agent training. I sincerely regret my caustic remark and here is an image of "me" kneeling to ask Nathan for forgiveness:

Digital present of a delicious meal of tandoori chicken to sweeten up the apology

Now merely kneeling to ask for forgiveness is not enough. It must be followed up with something better like a delicious meal of digital tandoori chicken. Here is "my" tandoori chicken meal to Nathan to make up for my mistake:

My environmentally friendly USB fan: Not digital but real

environmentally friendly USB fan

Here is an environmentally friendly USB fan (blue blades, highlighted by solid red arrow pointing at it) I received as my 59th birthday gift from my youngest son.

Environmentally friendly? It uses ELECTRICITY!!! So why do I say it is environmentally friendly? My computer to which I am practically glued my whole waking hours except when I get an excuse to go take a walk (thunderstorm, bank, shop, lunch or dinner, etc.) is in the hottest part of my house. In the landing at the top floor. Hot air rises, so that means the hottest air accumulate in this hot spot. But today is not my usual day, when I am topless and try to avoid using the huge ceiling fan above (it is my birthday, but I can't be in my first birthday suit). Now my sympathetic son seeing poor me "suffering" minus the ceiling fan because ceiling fan uses electricity, gave me this USB fan. Plug it into a computer USB port, and it gives a pretty good cooling breeze. Very effective and very "electricity-effective". "Electricity-effective"? I haven't done any research yet, but I think the electricity you can draw from a USB port is limited, definitely much, much less than that giant ceiling fan hanging over my head.

Very thoughtful son. And he sure knows how to choose a gift. Look at what he gave me for my 57th birthday - My first grandchild at his grandfather's 58th birthday gathering. It is somewhere in the middle of the post and was the main reason how this almost-impossible-to-smile blogger can get a laughing profile photo for his blog.

Thank you son for both. Very much appreciated.

My digital birthday present for Calvin Low

Hi Calvin,

Here is my digital and environmentally friendly birthday present for you. Your dream car (at least what dad think should be your dream car):

Like it? Please tell me that you like it. Please! Please don't tell me you prefer the car below as your birthday present as then dad will have to work much harder to get you that as your birthday present:

Let me tell you why I think the first one should be your dream car:

  1. it runs on water. Just pour water into it, and it will go 2000 km

  2. Can't afford tap water? Go to the longkang (for those Bahasa Malaysia challenged surfers, that in plain English is "drain") and just get some longkang water. That is free. Now if you don't like smelly longkang water, just go to the swimming pool in your condominium and scoop some swimming pool water at 2am in the morning when everyone is sound asleep and no one can see you scooping free (percuma) swimming pool water for your digital Berlin SmartCar

  3. it can use the engine lubricants that pours out of the sump of your expensive Toyota when you change its engine lubricant

  4. when the tires threads gets bald, just let me know. I will get you a brand new set of digital Michelin Energy tires

  5. if this car needs a repainting job, just let me know. I will do it for you FOC (gratis)

Now, don't you agree it should be your dream car? Even after they raise the rate you have to pay for tap water, it still runs for sens (sens for those not familiar with our country's official language, is cents) per 1000 km. Now if you tell me you can't even afford sens, just let Mi Me knows. I will give you some sufficient digital sens for you to get those digital tap water for you to get this Berlin SmartCar to get you to office or to go wherever you want for your vacation. I think you can drive to Berlin even if you decide you want to go there. Or perhaps to Frankfurt where you have a cousin-in-law. Now if those selling digital tap water don't accept digital sens, just let dad knows. Don't even have to bother Mi Me. Just give me a call (it is free) to my much appreciated brand new, sophisticated and definitely not digital, Nokia mobile phone as it it also a 016 number (thank you very much. In case you forgot, it is my 59th birthday present from all of you know who). I will get you some digital water for you. All the digital water you need to get to Frankfurt to see your cousin-in-law (real flesh and blood and definitely not digital).

And you don't have to worry about repainting or getting set new tires. Dad will take that headache for you.

But if you still insist you want the second car for your birthday present, I am afraid dad will have to tell you go get it yourself.

Happy birthday Calvin. I hope you are as happy as your dad on his recent birthday. And my apologies, Calvin. Dad forgot to thank all of you for that nice Nokia hand phone plus that 016 number. Next time dad wouldn't forget. Promise. And please don't tell your second (or is it first?) dad your first (or is it second) dad (I am afraid dad is pretty confused about things at 59 years of age) that I gave you a digital Berlin SmartCar for your birthday present after you dad got such good makan (makan is our version of delicious 6 or 7 course dinner for Bahasa Malaysia challenged surfers) plus those non-digital birthday presents for my recent 59th birthday. He will punch me for sure for digital abuse. I hope he knows how to give digital punches. I can take all the digital punches that he can give me. So don't worry too much. If you somehow experienced a slip of the tongue and told him, Mi Me and you wouldn't break up for she is not going to worry about her dad getting a thousand or even a million digital punches.

Now go enjoy your digital Berlin SmartCar. And droll over that Ferrari if you want.

Note: Comments have been set to allow anyone to comment, with or without Google account. With or without Open ID. But comments are moderated in case those who don't agree with me get abusive for giving such a gift after receiving such great non-digital gifts. But for Calvin, he can comment in anyway he likes. It is his privilage. For after all, this is his gift. Not even sure if he is going to accept it or not. But whatever it is, I promise his comment will be approved.
