MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

the smog getting bad to worse

The smog condition surrounding Jalan Raja Laut here is so bad, blame it on Indonesia. Numerous fires are raging in Kalimantan and Sumatra currently. We in Malaysia & Singapore have been suffering this annual affair for almost 10 years and God knows what the impact on our long term health will be. This is health hazard, I had it worse here than what I experience back in Singapore 3 years ago. The Indonesian authorities must do something about this disaster.

The National Security Division, Prime Minister’s Department, Putrajaya have issued a "State Of Emergency" until the API numbers drop to a safe level.

The Department of Environment has just released the Air Pollutant Index for the country. Selangor recorded 305 in Gombak, Port Kelang (486), Petaling Jaya (326), Kajang (204), Shah Alam (430), and Kuala Selangor (527). In Kuala Lumpur, the reading is 295, and Putrajaya (354). For detailed readings, visit the DOE website

Me, . . . staying indoors all this week, dreading to go outside and choke to death

“ Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy ”

Steve Jobs - Referring to the pirate flag that flew over Apple’s headquaters in 1983. I believe that quote was one of three keyphrases for a large Apple meeting/conference, and the Pirate flag was attached to the Macintosh building after that meeting. So the flag was actually a reaction to that.
