If you want to created your own version of environmentally friendly presents (maybe a digital photo or something else), just send email to
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.

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.

Hi Calvin,

Sounds like you like it, but like the real thing better. Since you want the real thing, let me think. Maybe I will wait till I can make it myself. Hope you are a patient person. And when it is ready, you are prepared to change from your expensive Toyota to my environmentally friendly home made Berlin SmartCar.
