In the meanwhile there are bigger things to worry about now approximately hundreds of other islands and reefs to fight over of of the coast of South China Sea that Malaysia could lose if nothing is done to claim them. As the claim of ownership extends beyond islands to marine features such as reefs and even rock formation visible only during low tides, the total number could exceed thousands.

Touch \'N\' Go and Reload section, Skudai Tol PlazaThis morning I went to help dad in distributing today’s newpapers of Berita Harian at Skudai Tol Plaza in conjunction to the start of school holidays. Boy the traffic was awesome because we managed to distribute 2000 copies of the papers in nearly 2hrs as we start at around 8am and finished at precisely 9.51am.

           After that, I went to help around the Spell-It-Right(Junior) challenge event organized by RHB bank and NST at Industrial Technology Institute here in Johor. Being as it is ‘junior’ and it is a spellig contest, you get the drill it was for primary student. Words from as simple ‘coal’ to, as I can say quite tough for a primary student, the word ‘regrigerator’, in the final round. Amanda Ooi won the 1st prize and the 2nd prize goes to the participant from Tebrau Primary School.

           A contestant from Mutiara Rini Primary School takes home the 3rd prize. There’s a Malay Spell-It-Right Junior Challengesaying, ‘Sambil menyelam minum air’(to drink water while diving) meaning doing something that you like and getting something that benefits you back. So I met some new people there from the event management crew, Saphire Event Management, Bid, who was incharge with the cameras and the NST Corporate Comm. Manager, Nazril. I like going to such events as I get to meet all sorts of people.

           Talking about people, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, true? some like cherry on top of their strawberry ice cream, some like wearing torned jeans and some just dispises their country. (more…)

The ‘JB’ stands for JohorBuzz, it is a supplement regional paper that comes with the News Straits Times(NST) paper that is available only in Johor, Malaysia. The challenge consists of 160 groups made out of 4 members and the prizes are fairly HOT, seriously, a grade-A house for a treasure hunt challenge worth nearly RM200k? who doesn’t want it? (more…)
