FOCUS : intransitive verb

AsSalam wrh. wbt. and a very pleasant evening guys and gals,

The Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners : International Student Edition defined the verb, focus, as " to concentrate on something and pay particular attention to it ". Now these are exactly the things that we should do ! Concentrate and pay particular attention (no matter how difficult that will prove to be).

I will be the first one to admit that I don't have the ability of any sort to persuade or convince my dear readers (mythical creatures as far as my blog is concerned...) to agree with me with whatever I'm saying in my entries. I'll concede as well -through gritted teeth- that I'm as powerless as the next chap or chapette who wants his or her views to be heard by those who walk along the corridors of seemingly limitless power.

Nevertheless, I believe that I've at least made an take a stand, to hold on to something, and in these dire moments, only Allah s.w.t, the Most Merciful and the Most Gracious will help me.

So guys and gals, let's focus on these... if you just can spare a few minutes of your precious time and read up on these issues and more importantly, please get back to me through the commentaries section. So that we can exchange views and discuss them for a better and informed outlook, then that would be a benefit to all, I certainly think of it as a positive method, no?

I'm pretty sure that one of the biggest rare-earth plant in the world is about to start operation in Gebeng, Kuantan but does anyone even know what is it all about ? I got something on the Lynas thingy, do check out the so called 'green practices' of other Australian companies and a few read ups about the pollution it might cause and why we need to at least halt the proposed plant which I believe is already in an advanced stage.

Ehem, quote Jay-Z (yikes!) here goes :

"This is anti autotune, death of the ringtone,
This ain't for iTunes, this ain't for sing alongs
This is Sinatra at the opera, bring a blonde
Preferably with a fat ass who can sing a song
Wrong, this ain't politically correct
This might offend my political connects
My raps don't have melodies
This should make n****s wanna go and commit felonies"

To the uninitiated, that is more or less my disclaimer for the next few paras. I would really really love to know from my Sarawakian friends, what is the 'mood' like over there ? Have you guys read RadioFreeSarawak ? Or try to visit SarawakReport ? It has been going on and you know it will continue before your very eyes...You guys have it in you to go out there and make a change ! Yes, you can be sure that it won't be easy and even looks a tad impossible doesn't it ? Well, please know that was the general perception before March '08. Let the silly season commence...

Wassalaam and ciao !

By Allah s.w.t grace and mercy I'm still here...

AsSalaam wrh. wbt. friends and foes,

I have at least 3 drafts of entires in the 'edit posts' section of my 'Posting' tab in this blog hosting site that I'm so 'fond' of.

It will and shall remain that way unless or until I can summon whatever tiny weeny love of words that I still have inside of me coz, man..... it's becoming more and more of a joke !

If you must know, all of the drafts are about football *yawn...* or to be more specific, 1 of them is about Le Roi a.k.a Eric Cantona, another is about....oh well, look at the time peeps !

My point is, I believe I still need to reach a consistency level of posting or entries like the average bloggers before I can even think about getting noticed. Allah s.w.t grace and mercy I'm still here. Good luck to me !

In the meantime, here is my newly acquired friend, you might know him from somewhere but before you start asking, the answer is NO, come on you guys... of course Bruce Wayne won't be scouring iTunes for that Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars song.

'Coz he's already a friggin' billionaire !

Until next time, insya-Allah...
