La Li Lu Le Lo

So, I have just finished Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots at 4.00am this morning. All I can say is, it has to be one of the greatest cinematic event that I have ever watched (and also played). Cinematic in a sense that there are loads of cutscenes, and I know there are many out there get put-off by that. My reasoning? It is of course a Metal Gear Solid game, you expect to have cutscenes in the game. The game? I have to say it does not disappoint and it is not a chore to control and it being the most accessible game amongst the rest of the MGS games brings a lot of the fun into the game.

I'll just sum it up: IT IS FUCKING AWESOME! I KID YOU NOT!

I am still blown away and I can't wait to go back home and give it a second run through. It is that good and I probably won't stop there even. MGS4 has MGO included so thats a must try.

Snake you've earned the respite that you have always wanted. A great send-off to one of the greatest heroes in gaming.

Thank you Hideo Kojima.

The thing is...

Friday prayers "khutbah" (blame me for not googling the meaning in english, speech?) are meant for reflection amongst the whole Islam community. What we can do to improve ourselves both externally and internally. But, what I have found recently it is a medium to spread political propaganda and wishing wellness on leaders who don't lead by example.

The story goes like this; for the past 3 weeks I have been going to the Putrajaya Masjid (I will not call it Mosque, for reasons it might be derogative to us all, MIGHT, I am still unsure but I'll check wikipedia soon-ish). Anyway, during last weeks Friday prayers the speaker (yes I haven't gotten around to finding the true word for it, so shut it) was going on and on about subsidies. Yes, the subsidies that government has countless times preached to us on how it is how they help the citizens.

He was preaching how these subsidies are helping out the poor. Paradox (or bullshit), if I've ever saw one. How are you going to help the poor by increasing the oil prices? The thing is, with oil prices sky-rocketing, the poor has to hike up prices of their raw products (if they're in the agri or fishing industry that is, and thats only if they have jobs) just so they can make ends meet. They will be living the same life they have. In a way, inflation is good only if our wages follow the trend, but it has been stagnant for how long I don't know.

I remember a time when MYR 100 can get you a lot of stuffs. Now, you can barely do shit with it. I need MYR 200 to buy games DAMNIT! Can we make videogames official over here. Videogames are not a kid's toy anymore and stop lumping gamers into people who don't grow up, its our past-time and luxury. If you want to modify your car just so it can go that bit faster, then get pulled over by the cops and then complain how shitty cops are, go ahead.

Sorry for the tangent.

The second thing is, when we 'Amin' to all the Islamic verses (yes again I am an asshole, I am not pious enough to understand their meanings, it's a gradual thing) and then they go ahead and ask that Sultans or Agongs or Leaders of the state be given prosperity and wealth. That is the only part I don't 'Amin' to. What have THEY done to improve Islam? These royal families go drinking around in pubs and showing off how modern they are. They think they have relations to prophets and all that crap. Being related and improving Islam does not equal the same shit. You are not going to get any reprieve.

I even think Parameswara is a goddamn Indian who lost his way. He ain't Indonesian or whatever, he is a fucking pariah! Think, he came from the west, I think around the Bali area and we all know Bali has strong Hindu-ism cultures. Hindu came from India, nuff said. I AM THE LAW!

But what do I know about how it was back then, he might be one of the prophets that were not significant enough to be named in the Holy Al-Quran. For that I apologise, and only if I was mistaken.

To all the Friday prayers preachers:
1. Stop spewing out political propaganda.
2. Don't ask Allah to save your KINGS or LEADERS who does not practise Islamic traits (it is so friggin' obvious in this country)

p/s - One of the preachers at the Putrajaya Masjid, was talking about how murderers were given a special type of hell, especially for them. Our DPM (Altantuya) was there at the time, I bet the preacher will be dumped into an obscure backwater town Masjid to do his speech from now on.

What have you done to make the world a better place?

Latest edition to the MSL crew reporting for duty. My sister who is a hypocrite, my bro who will always be pissed off (with reasons) and the youngest of the lot who never seems to care. All 3 of them seem to love this blogspot bullshit, I've been trying to get them on livejournal, where I can better manage my friends list. But noooooooooooooo, they want to be in the "in-crowd". Assholes, all of them.

I used to have a blog here, but I can't seem to access it, but its just a stupid bookmark of sorts which I have abandoned a long time ago.

Enough of the bleeping introduction, lets cut to the chase. I hate my job, thank god I got through to the 2nd round of interviews over at Kurnia Insurance (and no, the job position is not as an insurance agent, more like a management trainee thing). I will leave this piece of crap of a company and I will not be sad or pity the new girl who was recently employed. She will have to learn all the things that we hate about the company the hard way.

I just hope I get through to the 3rd and final round of interviews, so I can leave this company and get at least a one week respite before starting the new job. Thinking of going back to my hometown for a week, damn I miss KK. But I do not miss the politicians over there. Fuuuuuuuuuucked up I tell yers. Lemme ask you this, you know how you think all politicians are corrupt? Well you don't need to think long and hard when it comes to MP (Moses Peace). He exudes corruption just by smiling, I shit you not, I KID YOU NOT.


SEE! What did I tell you? CORRUPTED.

I am in no mood to do anything else today. TODAY I WILL BE UNPRODUCTIVE.
