Un-Happy Labour Day

1st of May, it's the day when all labourers around the world celebrate Labour's Day. Well, not all actually....

I'm one of the exceptional ones....
Like I used to say, cari makan susah....especially when I'm in this project in Langkawi.
We used to be the client/developer; but now we are the sub-con. How fortunes can change in a short period of time.

Well, to those on holidays, enjoy your holidays. For those who are forced to work, don't 'ular' 'cos you won't know who's watching you......

The Star vs New Straits Times

I have been reading The Star all these while. There is no particular reason, but I guess ever since I started reading The Star, the then NST was double the size of Star, which makes Star a better choice for reading and carrying. The arrangement of articles and colour might have been another reason. But today, I found out one thing. From page 1 to 40 (mid page), there are 28 full pages of advertisements in total, made up of full and half pages. I start to wonder, what am I paying for all these while. For the advertisements, or for the news?

As for the advertisements, sometimes they are useful, but most of the time, we just flip through without thinking twice. As for the news, I totally agree with my friend(a fellow blogger) that they are biased, and anti-opposition. But lately, I do find news which are pro-opposition especially news in the newly formed state-gov of Penang, Perak and Selangor. Not much have been heard about Kelantan and Kedah. Nevertheless, I will continue reading The Star, especially their weekend issues, 'cos if you compare theirs and of NST's, you can see the difference. They definitely have more things to read, which can keep me occupied for the whole morning.

Anyway, I believe many of you are slowly changing to NST....am I right? Any particular reason?

Langkawi...nice?

I've not blogged for almost a month now. The reason being I'm busy setting up my new base in Langkawi. Another new project, Police Training Camp in Padang Matsirat, near the airport.

An overview of Langkawi:
- weather : damn hot with dry sea wind, seldom rain
- people : mixture of malay 75%, chinese 15%, others 10%.
- religion : Islam
- places of interest : hilltop view/cable car ride, Pantai Chenang, Makam Mahsuri, Telaga Tujuh, Galeria Perdana, and many more
- others : duty free island, but only applicable to liquor, cigarette and cars

I've been here for 10 days. The place I like the most is Pantai Chenang. There is a Water Fest ongoing now, which started on the 3rd. There are games and competitions like beach volleyball, beach soccer, sand castle building, drawing, etc.

Overall, if you wanna visit Langkawi, I'd suggest 3 - 7 days...not more. It's quite a boring place especially when you overstay. Luckily I'll be here for 6 - 8 months...and hopefully, our maincon really stick to the schedule.
