What is with a logo?

55 years of independence. 55 years of learning how to get the logo right.... all was going very well until... yes the 55th year! I don't think I need to post an image of how it looks, you people can just search it on Google under 101 logo design blunders.

So some say it is not a logo. While some even say they are not voting unless the logo is changed. Well I say, its just a logo. A very ugly one at that but I am still voting. For all the points that points out the obvious flaws of this so called National Day Logo lets just move on to more pressing issues. Such as why on earth are we stuck with morons running the country. Same goes to the other side of the fence....the opposition are not at all very intelligent and their actions points South and away from Putrajaya.

Come to think of it.... now the logo looks somewhat appropriate. We can't decide what we want thus the logo translates to just that.

Getting it back up to speed.

Recently I have had the time to go through my old posts on this here blog. I was expecting there to be some posts that I would cringe and regret writing. Surprisingly I seem to agree to my self more and more. Perhaps I am just too full of my self or I am faintly correct in proving my points. I can't be entirely sure as those who read this blog or used to read it do not leave comments. I have passive readers I think.

Now whichever way this goes I don't see a point to start over and dismiss my past. I have changed a lot somewhat but not to the point that I would like to shut down this blog and loose all the crap that I have written. Thus I hope I could continue from where I have left off.

It (my writing) may or may not be as sharp as it used to be, but I do feel I want to contribute my thoughts on my own terms. Take it as it is, agree to what you may see fit but seriously it is more about me than you. It's just that if you agree do leave a comment and if you disagree do leave a comment too. But that does not mean I have to respond to it. It's my blog.... so I can pretty much write whatever I want.

Here is to more from Bullets of Quills and Ink.

Azwan Ismail is the "man" of the hour.

OK no this is not a personal attack to this self confessed gay, but what are we doing as a society these days that molds such a person to convince himself or herself as gay. I wrote something about this issue in 2007 and looks like the bad gut feeling I have inside has proven me very right. You may find that article here.

I hate to know that my predictions about this matter comes true. Urrghh.... disgusting!

YTL foray into ISP could possibly be at consumer's advantage.

It's been ages since I wrote something here. Actually it was an unannounced sabbatical. The scene was getting really boring and saturated with really stupid issues so before I became of of those who was desperate enough to  write about stupid issues I gave blogging a break. Not that I bother if my readership drops since I earn almost nothing for each visit of your anyway.

YTL is diversifying into the ISP business. 4G to be exact. So we already have a handful of providers and now comes another one. Some speculate that there will be a price war looming once YTL gets up to speed. But can we directly see internet fees dropping below RM100 and yet maintain high speeds? If there is one thing that all of our ISP are short changing us is consistency. Most will claim at best effort basis and that happens how often?

There is a simple problem. There is only so much the market can hold and with YTL the market becomes more brittle. Very few have multiple internet accounts... perhaps to most the minority only subscribe services from 2 ISP. One for home use and the other for mobile use. I know many can't leave home without checking on their various farms and armies online. Owh not to forget the cam-whoring blogger types.

But if there is a scant possibility that internet fees dip far below the RM100 per month for 1Mb all the better. Then perhaps we could pressure the providers to remove the stupid fair usage policy? Even if majority of us do not exceed the allocation but it would be nice to know that it is no longer there. Let the ISP fight~ then we shall wait and see who has the most bang for our Ringgit.

Poor Babies.

Could there be a civic divide between races in this country? I suspect there is so since the numerous reports of abandoned babies seem to by majority involved non-married Malay couples. Coincidently they are I assume Muslims too. The Baby Hatch launched by the government seems not to be helping much either because the location is not as convenient as just dumping a baby in a garbage bin or the public in general has no idea that it exists.

I do seriously think one other way to tackle these irresponsible couples is by actually giving them harsher sentences. But in order to do that is the need to trace them first. More go missing than being found and we would not know if there are repeat offenders. God! How can one dispose a baby once and then do it again the next time is beyond my comprehension.

To be objective the disposal of unwanted babies is murder (if the baby is found dead) or attempted murder if the baby is found alive but in such a deplorable state. I think the case would be different if the baby is left in a mosque or some public area where someone would not take too long to notice.

It is indeed everyone's responsibility to ensure such cases do not happen. However it surely boils down to the education and upbringing of these unwed couples. Some might be legally married too but too poor to afford to raise a child. Whatever the reasons may be there must be a mechanism where we as a society can help out these struggling couples or at least the baby. Honestly this is a kind of social epidemic that may grow to be detrimental to all of us if we do not actively do something about it.
