Inspiration

One of my main inspiration to write a blog again is a man from another country. He is very well known as Crof to many of us who knows him personally. His writing skillis are exceptional and just by reading what he has written will drop jaws throughout the globe.

H1N1 in Malaysia

As my first post on ANY topic, I have chosen H1N1 as one of my topic of discussion. H1N1 in Malaysia have been quiet recently but I hope we Malaysians dont get fooled by the disguise that H1N1 brings. We should be prepared for the 2nd wave. So please dont be ignorant.

Anyway below is the current situation as of December 30th 2009:

An introduction

I have blogged before but due to unforeseen circumstances, the blog and myself decided to quit.

However after a long break, I'm back and this time around I will not QUIT. Anyway rather than having one topic only "blog" I have decided to cover all and everything I can about anything. Let it be life, news, music and so on.

So please bear with me while I get back on track. Thank you and cheers :)
