June 2017
The government added weekly petrol prices to obscure the subsidy/taxation from road users.
Malaysians are not given salary weekly thus, budget our expense monthly. Therefore, I would from now on tabulate the monthly average of the ups/downs in Malaysia's petrol prices.

Dengue epidemic (2010- until now)


As of 2016, the official mass media in Malaysia downplay the severity of the dengue epidemic citing that the number of cases/deaths has been reduced from 2015,failing to mention the new broader uptrend of up to 50% in death cases from the period of 2000-2010.

Update #1
June 2017


The Huawei just had its update to Android Wear 2.0 a couple of weeks ago. There is better stability with it managing Bluetooth connection between all my devices ,which to me is the big plus. I still remember Android phones teething problem 4 years ago with Bluetooth connectivity,so I guess it's a common bug.

Uber app is now like a standalone app on the watch itself just pulling data from the phone. So are all apps in the watch,apps are directly installed now to the watch and just accessing the phone for data,location,media,etc.

Notifications now comes in with a gentle buzz,and does not hog the screen.Just swipe up to review all unread notification and swipe left to dismiss! Ahh quick and easy. The only thing I missed was double tapping on the screen brings up the Program/App slider screen. Now you got to use the physical button.

Cyclist ...motorcyclist what's next pedestrians? Malaysia is quick to respond on social internet to pass judgement and be a web mob. Our behaviour over the Net have indication of an outward  negative attitude towards morality and ethics. This last couple of months have seen the dignity of fellow humans ,children  ,sons,young adult life cut short after a vehicular incident at 3am : push to the mud by social,political quips on the net.

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Setiawangsa residents fear a repeat of the Dec 28, 2012 landslide is imminent with heavy rain over the week leading to soil movement in Jalan Bukit Setiawangsa.

Resident Azlin Othman, 44, is afraid of a repeat of the incident nearly 17 months ago which also began with similar earth movement.
"Since the previous landslide, there has been little acti…
