Holidays are for gaining further knowledge. Holidays are for staying home.

大家都爱看电影,殊不知底片其实是一张一张的。放映时,一秒钟底片转换二十四次,我们只看到连续相,我们肉眼又如何有能力有识别每一张呢? 世间事物其实都是这样让我们无从察觉它的存在。

回来的路上,在新山市区黄亚福街 Jalan Wong Ah Fook,成群的飙车族 Mat Rempit 驾着贴满国阵党旗的摩托车在路上奔驰,呼喊口号。换作是新加坡,这些siao的应该会被拉去关几天吧,你妈妈还希望法官可以判几鞭威慑一下。

But why would these samseng kia support BN? Solely because of money paid for their support during this election period? I remember we had this homestay programme a…
