“Brought to life by the Allspark Pulse wave released during the final battle against Megatron, Landmine is still learning what it means to be an Autobot. He is content, however, to continue his work with the humans of Sector 7, even while Ironhide trains him in the finer points of robot combat. He enjoys the excitement and intrigue of working as an agent in a super-secret organization. Knowing that what he does not only keeps the humans safe, but also protects his fellow Autobots bring him great gratification”

|MaCRoSS 25th ANNiVeRSaR|
Huhhhh...Hi there! I’m back at my desk. Felt hectic for the last few days...HeHe....OK then, straight to the event review la...On the Jan 26th, my beloved wife and I decided to participate for the so-called ‘prelude’ of the MACROSS 25th Anniversary Convention which was held at the Taylor’s University College, Subang Jaya. The official event of the MACROSS 25th Anniversary Convention will be held on the April 25th. Actually, I’m the biggest fan of the MACROSS cum ROBOTECH. At first, my wife feels reluctant of joining the convention. She thought that this convention probably for the toddlers. “You’re wrong sayang”.....HeHeHe.....Most of the gigs were at the age between 25 to 35 years old...Weird haaahh? =) Apparently, none of the toddlers were participated...HuHu. We arrived around 11.00pm and saw most of the crowd busy playing games and site-seeing at the MACROSS collectibles and other action figures especially from the TRANSFORMERS laa..HeHe. Almost 1½ hour we spent there by collecting free materials and goodie bag courtesy from ANIMAX, GEMPAK Magazines and etc. before watching the new instalment of the MACROSS animation series (MACROSS FRONTIER 2008: Episode 01) at the Lecture Hall 2, 2.30pm. As to heat up this convention, the organizer has invited Hannah Tan (ANIMAX ICON: CHANNEL 715-ASTRO) as a special guest to conduct some other programmes. I wasn’t gave any intention at all...HeHe...I was busy looking and snapping pictures at the different types of awesome transformable Valkyires. Fuuhhhhh!!!...They are really DAMN die-hard-fan for buying these expensive figures. The price?...Huhu, I’d say RM400 above. Then, approximately 2.30pm++, we started watching the preview of the episode 01: MACROSS FRONTIER 2008. The movie was on the Japanese language with the English subtitles. Mmmm....I’d say the graphics were FANTASTICS and SUPERB...According to the organizer, the full version (34 episodes) will be released on the April, 25th which is on the same day of the official convention. The preview took about 45 mins. Next, we were watching the MACROSS first generation movie entitled MACROSS PLUS: DO YOU REMEMBER LOVE? As compared to the ROBOTECH series (USA version), this Japanese version includes more dramatic action, unseen footage and superb graphics. It took nearly about 2 hours with some explicit 18SX scenes. Well, in conclusion, I’d like to say this: ‘There are more MACROSS gigs out there than meets the eyes’.....HeHe...

I’d say this guy is a 'JERK'....... Lack of some homework before making such irrelevant statement makes him even WORST as a non-muslim Malaysian citizen. He seems to have some hard time with the Muslim communities in Malaysia by making some irrelevant statement. By saying that ‘Tuan Guru Nik Aziz’ as a person who are insensitive and insulting other believer are surely not true. From what I’ve read from your so called ‘extremely insensitive’ article, it’s not just a matter of feeling pity for someone who has been amputated for stealing things, it’s about the moral of the punishment of making someone to think wisely before doing anything so stupid. Moreover, the punishment process itself is quite strict and lot of circumstances have to be passed through rigorously before making someone eligibly for the punishment (in this case: amputating the hands of a thief). The most important thing is under the REAL ‘Syariah’ law, non-Muslim communities can choose either to use this law or stick to the usual secular decree. There is no obliging of choosing ‘HUDUD’ law. These are some of the strict rules to be complied before the ‘HUDUD’ law (SARIQAH: stealing things) is executed. The execution will be exempted should the plaintiff is within the condition as below.
(a) Apabila nilai harta yang dicuri itu kurang daripada nisab (Jumlah harta yang ditentukan secara hukum syarak mengikut kadar semasa).
(b) Apabila kesalahan itu tidak dapat dibuktikan dengan keterangan yang dikendaki di bawah peruntukan-peruntukan Bahagian III (Undang-undang Syarie).
(c) Apabila pesalah itu bukan mukallaf.
(d)Apabila tuan punya harta yang dicuri itu tidak mengambil langkah yang cukup untuk menjaga harta itu daripada dicuri, memandangkan kepada keadaan harta itu dan tempat ia disimpan atau ditinggalkan.
(e) Apabila pesalah itu belum lagi mendapat milik yang sepenuhnya terhadap harta yang dicuri itu, walaupun tuan punya tidak lagi mempunyai jagaan dan milikan ke atas harta tersebut;
(f) Apabila harta yang dicuri adalah daripada jenis harta yang tidak bernilai dan boleh didapati dengan banyaknya merata-rata tempat ataupun daripada jenis harta yang sudah musnah.
(g) Apabila harta yang dicuri tidak mempunyai apa-apa nilai mengikut hukum syarak seperti minuman yang memabukkan atau alat-alat hiburan.
(h) Apabila kesalahan mencuri itu dilakukan oleh pemberi hutang ke atas harta orang yang berhutang dengannya yang enggan membayar hutang itu; Dengan syarat bahawa nilai harta yang dicuri itu tidak melebihi jumlah hutang atau nilai harta yang dicuri itu melebihi jumlah hutang tetapi tidak melebihi nisab.
(i) Apabila kesalahan itu dilakukan dalam keadaan yang amat mendesak, seperti perang, kelaparan, penyakit dan bencana alam.
(j) Apabila kesalahan itu berlaku dalam keluarga seperti isteri mencuri daripada suaminya dan
sebaliknya atau anak mencuri daripada bapanya atau sebaliknya.
(k) Apabila kesalahan itu dilakukan oleh sekumpulan orang yang mana bahagian yang diperolehi oleh tiap-tiap seorang daripada pesalah itu setelah dibahagikan harta yang dicuri atau hasilnya sesama mereka adalah kurang daripada nisab.
(l) Apabila pesalah itu mengembalikan harta yang dicuri itu sebelum hukuman hudud dilaksanakan.
(m) Apabila tuan punya harta yang dicuri itu tidak mengaku bahawa hartanya telah dicuri, walaupun pesalah itu telah membuat iqrar mencurinya.
(n) Apabila pesalah itu membuat bantahan yang boleh diterima oleh hukum syarak terhadap saksi-saksi.
‘ISLAM’ means the way of life. It’s beautiful and peace. How on earth such a peaceful and beautiful religion would really do such a gruesome and non-humanitarian acts without some sort of procedures and system before so-called ‘cruel’ punishment can be executed. ‘Don’t judge the book by its cover’. Ask someone else that expert in this matter. Don’t just simply ‘take it’ as simple as A, B, C without doing some homework or references before some statement can be made. You could end up by triggering anger to the Muslim communities in Malaysia. For the religious person out there (especially from the UMNO party), stop telling lies about ‘HUDUD’ law. Give them the truth about ‘ISLAM’. Don’t just because of the differences in term of our ideology within the Malays communities; we end up by fighting and arguing each other’s. Our enemies are always lurking and ready to strike at anytime. They knew our weaknesses.
For you Steve, I’m hoping that we’ll meet someday.....
Deliciousss...Walaaahh..!! HeHeHe. That’s the word which pops up from my head. As usual, I was on my way back from UKM to CUCMS to fetch my beloved wife. Actually, I haven’t taken lunch on that day. So, I decided to try some of the delicacies at the Hassan Cafe’s which is located at the street mall (in the same building with CUCMS lecturer room). If I might guess, Hassan Cafe’s is the most preferred cafe around Cyberjaya maybe due to its location which is located at the central of Cyberjaya (hub for the RapidKL and e-Budaya busses). If I’m not mistaken, they have two outlets there with the same name (you’ll notice the differences). If you happen to have lunch there, please make sure that you’re visiting the right Hassan’s Cafe as at the end of your meals (let say ‘nasi goreng biasa’ and MILO ice), you probably wouldn’t want to see your bill to be written more than RM10 right? HeHeHe...Actually, it’s a normal scenario here to see your bill being charged more than RM10...HeHe. So, the other Hassan’s Cafe is most probably meant for the VIP laaaa (you’ll find numerous of western foods there and of cause a bit expensive laaa). Enough of that, where were we? OK, my wife told me that at the Hassan’s Cafe, they have this menu so called ‘nasi goreng cili api’. Since I’m the one that’s really enjoy so much eating hot stuff, I mean really hot stuff e.g.: cili api, this menu is probably no match to me laaa....HeHeHe (berlagak la konon). Forget to mention, this ‘nasi goreng cili api’ is extremely loaded with ‘cili api’, skinless prawn and small chunks of chicken meat. So, I decided to endeavour the hot and spicy ‘nasi goreng cili api’ and fuuuhhhhhhhhhh...HeHe...it was sooo hot that I couldn’t feel the icy MILO (baru hang tau)...The price was about RM 4.50 (excluded the MILO ice). Not bad for a moderate exclusivity mamak stall in the heart of Cyberjaya....If you happen to be in Cyberjaya, why not by trying this outrageous hot and spicy ‘nasi goreng cili api’. I’ll bet you won’t regret it...HeHeHe...

(SDF-1 Macross (or shortened to Macross), the spaceship that can transform into a giant robot)
The story of SDF Macross begins in 1999, when an alien spaceship crash-lands on Earth. After studying the wreckage, scientists discover an alien invasion is imminent and plead with the international community to cease hostilities and work together to face this new threat. Ten years later, the alien spaceship is rebuilt and christened Macross. But on its maiden voyage, its main cannons are unexpectedly activated and fired into orbiting alien ships. Subsequently, Macross is attacked by the gigantic aliens called the Zentraedi.
Young pilot Hikaru Ichijyo and budding singer Lynn Minmay are caught up in the attack and through various circumstances find themselves embroiled in an epic intergalactic war that will change the history of mankind forever.
During the mecha anime revolution spearheaded by Gundam, there was a flood of such anime in the market with very similar themes - mostly dealing with war and its consequences. Macross was no different in that sense but it differentiated itself from the rest with a unique story that focuses on the relationships formed between the characters, and how love and peace offer a way in the darkest of times. This central theme will be a template for all Macross sequels to come. Part of Macross’ appeal is, of course, the iconic Valkyries. As the fighter planes that transform into humanoid robots, they give humans an equal footing to fight against the giant Zentraedi.
Almost all Valkyries in the Macross franchise are designed by the series’ mecha designer, Shouji Kawamori, who draws his inspiration from real fighter jets. The Valkyries have gained an iconic status in the world of anime and are famous for their ability to transform into three modes: the Fighter mode which resembles a modern-day jet, the Battroid mode which is a humanoid robot, and the Gerwalk mode - a unique form resembling a hybrid between the jet and the robot. It is always exhilarating to watch the Valkyries unload a whole salvo of missiles while dodging enemy fire, and at the same time transforming into their different modes to adapt to the situation. The combat choreography directed by Ichiro Itano was definitely groundbreaking and way ahead of its time.
If you mention “anime music” to anyone, one would think of catchy J-pop theme songs or orchestral background music that sets the mood. But in Macross it is more than that. The music always plays an important role in the Macross storyline and this has continued to be a recurring theme in all its sequels.
In SDF Macross and its remake, Macross: Do You Remember Love?, the song sung by Lynn Minmay is used as a form of psychological warfare against the Zentraedi who have known no culture except war. In Macross Plus, the rogue artificial intelligence known as Sharon Apple sings songs that can control the minds of humans. In Macross 7, a mysterious power known as Anima Spiritia which is channelled through the music of Basara Nekki is used as a defence against space monsters. Despite the strange use of music as a plot device in the Macross series, the songs are always pleasing to the ear and would usually top the charts in Japan when they were first released.
It is thus not surprising that the music of Macross is well-known and immediately recognisable amongst the anime-watching crowd, even to those who have never caught Macross. Tunes like Ai, Oboete Imasu ka? (Do You Remember Love?), Shao Pai Long (Little White Dragon), Information High, Zero G Love and Holy Lonely Night, just to name a few, are amongst the fan favourites. While Macross may not share the same popularity as that of Gundam gained over the years, it is regarded as one of the pioneers that helped shape the mecha genre. Macross sequels are few and far between especially when compared to the Gundam franchise, but with each sequel, a new generation of Macross fans is born, and each fan will anticipate the next long-awaited sequel.
Australian sex therapist and relationship counsellor Dr. Rosie King talks about the factors that could affect the passion in a relationship and lead to a breakdown in sexual relations, and hence intimacy between a couple.
IF either partner is unable to have sex because of physical reasons, the best course of action would be to see a doctor. “There may be many factors at play. A woman may suffer from some form of sexual pain disorder or vaginismus. The latter is a condition where the pelvic floor muscles make intercourse impossible.
“Men may suffer from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction (ED), among other things.
“It would be wise to consult a doctor to allay fears and possibly find a solution to your sexual problems. More often than not, most of these problems are treatable,” advises sex therapist and relationship counsellor Dr. Rosie King.
Ignorance is not bliss
One of the most common sexual problems is related to ignorance and fallacies about sex.
“Many people know very little about sex and what they do know is based on what they see in the media - which in most cases, is widely-exaggerated!
“In this part of the world especially, children tend to receive little or no sex education while at school and parents are not forthcoming in matters of a sexual nature. It would be easier to improve the quality of sex if we knew a little more about it.
“While pleasing a partner in bed or being on the receiving end of pleasure may not be rocket science, it helps if we know how to make sex more exciting,” Dr. King said.
I’m no Superman
Watching too much TV may be detrimental to our sex lives. This is because Hollywood tends to portray its stars as insatiable tigers in bed.
“We would have unrealistic expectations if we’re basing what we have to do in bed with what we see on TV or in the movies! Men would have to be studs who have to perform on command and last for hours with a Grade 4 erection!
“This leads to all kinds of problems for flesh-and-blood men and adds to their performance anxiety. Bear in mind that anxiety affects sexual function,” Dr. King said.
Women are not spared either. “TV sirens seem to want it 24/7 and they get turned on at the drop of a hat!
“Multiple orgasms are a norm for them too. This leads to performance anxiety in women who may ask themselves why they are so different. They should remember that they are not abnormal.
“After all, studies have shown that only 29% of women have an orgasm every time they have sex,” Dr. King added.
Not tonight, dear
There’s a right and wrong way to do anything - even when it comes to putting your partner in the mood for sex.
“A major turn-off would be not knowing what to do to maximise your partner’s arousal and pleasure. One of the solutions to this problem is communication - even in bed. You have to let your partner know what you need to put you in the mood for sex and to make it truly memorable.
“Bear in mind that your partner is not a mind reader. Don’t be selfish in bed either. There’s no bigger turn-off than that,” Dr. King said.
Women are from Venus, men are from Mars
The great gender divide is another cause of sexual problems. Dr. King elaborates: “A lot of couples don’t realise that their partner’s sexual responses are different from theirs.
“This goes back to the fact that men and women are turned on and off by different things.
“Women tend to be distracted by factors such as lack of privacy and poor communication while it would take a lot more to turn a men’s sexual interest off!
“Consideration is the key here. Men have to be patient and provide adequate foreplay to put a woman in the mood (an average of 15 to 20 minutes) for sex. If couples are considerate of their partners’ desire enhancers, sexual problems would be at a minimum.”
Time goes by so fast
A major cause of sexual problems is related to ageing. After all, as men and women age, sexual function tends to change.
“If one is ignorant of these changes, the relationship could suffer. Bear in mind that sexual response in men and women slow down as they get older. Both parties need more stimulation and time to be aroused. It’s not so easy for men to achieve Grade 4 erections and lubrication in women may be reduced. Orgasms are harder to achieve and sadly, its intensity is decreased. These are just facts of life,” Dr. King said.
Despite these factors, Dr. King added that sex should remain an important factor in our lives even as our hair turns grey and our bodies appear less firm.
“The Pfizer Global Better Sex Survey has shown that 90% of Malaysian men and 78% of Malaysian women aged 55 to 64 still believe that sex is a necessary component to a fulfilling life. Let’s bear that in mind.
“Indeed, sex can remain pleasurable no matter how old you are. Even though our bodies go through many changes as we age, we should remember that sex can be as much fun in our golden years as it was in our youth,” she concluded.

These are my previous collection before buying the Night-Watch Optimus Prime (the most wanted action figure). Firstly, the double-sided accurate sculpture of Optimus Prime which I bought it at the Cineleisure, Damansara. In fact, I’ll never forget on that day right after watching the Transformers movie on how my honey insisted me so hard to buy that sculpture. I would guess, maybe she saw and heard me saying ‘Wooowww, Fuyohhhhh, Superbbbb laaaa graphic diaaa, and ‘takyah cite lagi laa ekk’....HeHe....(actually, it was quite embarrassed to behave like that...HeHe). So, I decided to buy it with a huge smiley face with the price tag of RM112.90. Secondly, the Optimus Prime truck vehicle mode (the Voyager Class) which I bought it at the Toy’s R Us Mid-Valley with the price tag of RM99.90. Thirdly, the Decepticon Desert Attack which is the most preferred action figures of all....(excluded the Night-Watch Optimus Prime laa...HeHe). I bought it at the SOGO, KL with the price tag of RM134.90. The Blackout and Scoponok were the best duo ever made and created by Michael Bay. Good job Michael.....This humongous ‘big ass’ machine is designed to transport Scorponok wherever he goes as they are usually be assigned to infiltrate and steal any information regarding on the location of the Allspark (the cubic thingy that give them some sort of life). Honestly, I was really amazed and impressed with the accuracy of these transformable action figures designed by HASBRO and it was so irresistible of not having it in your home...HuHuHu..
1½ year waiting for the house to be completed, I’ve heard the news from the developer that we will be awarded with the CF certificate soon. They are expecting to get the other 2% balance from the bank (out of RM249,000) this week and eventually requesting all buyers to get their key for the final inspection before end of this month. Since this is our second house, we are not expecting to get it as fully furnished as in the IKEA showrooms...HeHeHe...As we are going to Australia this year (most probably in June, 2008 insya Allah), at least we will have some basic furniture (paham-paham je la ekk...HeHe) to put into and not to forget the grill for each windows and doors for the safety purposes. The other cosmetics touch-up, I’ll leave it to my beloved wife...HeHe....(Since she’s so anxious of doing this and that...HeHe). Furthermore, they have given us the exact address for the utilities billing and postal purposes.
Oohh, forget to tell, yuppp...the interesting part is most of the ‘Taman Tropika’ buyers are professional Malays who are working at the UKM, Putrajaya federal departments and as far as central KL. This is a good start for making friends, changing experiences and establishing network since most of them come from a different background. OK...enough of that; actually, this house is located nearby to the Bangi KTM Commuter Station and approximately 2 Km from UKM Bangi. Not far for me as a UKM staff but my wife, she has to jump start earlier to Cyberjaya so that she will not been caught in the traffic jam laaa....Hmmmmm..... Apparently, this year will be our lucky year not only we will getting our house soon but the government has revised and amended the housing law by extending the warranty period from 12 to 18 months. At least, we as the house buyers can have a peace of mind of not worrying the defects that can be occurred at any time.
P/s: As the new season is just around the corner, I'm hoping that Kimi can beat again his rival cum new-comer (Hamilton). Apparently, he has done it very well in the Ferrari team as compared to his ex-team McLaren. He was very determined to win the title and I’ll bet he will do it again this season with more dramatic action plus superb handling of the brand new F2008 machines...All the best Kimi...

‘‘Setakat ini, jawatankuasa khas penubuhan Universiti Apex telah membuat beberapa pertemuan kecil manakala mesyuarat penuhnya telah diadakan semalam. ‘‘Jawatankuasa khas itu diberikan masa selama enam bulan untuk mengemukakan cadangan dan syor mengenai penubuhan Universiti Apex kepada kerajaan,” katanya. Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar selepas majlis penyampaian watikah pelantikan penyandang Kursi Tun Abdul Razak ke-13 di pejabatnya di sini hari ini. Mustapa ditanya mengenai proses penubuhan Universiti Apex yang terkandung dalam PSPTN Melangkaui Tahun 2020. Pelan itu dilancarkan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi di Putrajaya pada 27 Ogos tahun lalu.
Pada majlis pelancaran itu, Perdana Menteri mencabar Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi supaya menubuhkan sekurang-kurangnya sebuah Universiti Apex sebelum Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) tamat pada 2010. Universiti Apex ialah universiti tersohor yang menjadi penanda aras peringkat dunia dalam bidang pengajian tinggi. Di bawah PSPTN, Universiti Apex dijanjikan autonomi dari segi kewangan, skim perkhidmatan, pengurusan, pengambilan pelajar, kepimpinan tertinggi dan penetapan yuran pengajian.
Kebebasan juga diberikan kepada Universiti Apex untuk mengambil lebih ramai pensyarah dan pelajar asing bagi membolehkan ia melahirkan para penyelidik bertaraf Nobel Laureate.
Universiti itu turut boleh menawarkan syarat-syarat perkhidmatan dan gaji yang lebih baik kepada pensyarah dari luar negara supaya ia menjadi lebih kompetitif meskipun ia kekal tertakluk di bawah Akta Universiti dan Kolej Universiti 1971. Menurut Mustapa, pihaknya berpuas hati kerana anggota jawatankuasa tersebut memahami konsep penubuhan universiti berkenaan dan memberikan komitmen tinggi bagi menjadikan pusat pengajian tinggi itu institusi bertaraf dunia. ‘‘Kita akan kaji cadangan jawatankuasa itu dan menelitinya dengan pantas tetapi sudah tentu ia akan mengambil masa,” katanya. Terdahulu ketika menyampaikan amanat tahun baru kepada kakitangan kementerian pada majlis berasingan, beliau berkata, pada tahun ini kementeriannya akan meneruskan usaha memberikan autonomi kepada universiti-universiti awam - UTUSAN MALAYSIA
P/s: It seems that the implementation will be taking place ASAP. Optimistically, UKM and UM will be nominated by the MOHE as two of the IPTAs to be recognized as The APEX University. Although the MQA 2007 reports revealed that USM was the best university in Malaysia in term of it undergrads and post-grads management (based on the 5,000 correspondence questionnaires mainly from the student), UKM and UM still at it own levels by winning the best research management category up ahead USM and UPM.
Beliau berkata, langkah itu bertujuan memastikan kakitangan awam ‘tidak lupa’ untuk berbaju batik kerana sebelum ini ia hanya dipakai dua kali sebulan. Ini bermakna pemakaian baju batik di kalangan kakitangan kerajaan bukan lagi pada hari pertama dan ke-15 setiap bulan seperti yang diamalkan sebelum ini. Dengan penguatkuasaan peraturan itu, baju batik akan dipakai empat kali sebulan.
“Kakitangan lelaki digalakkan memakai batik Malaysia,” kata Mohd. Sidek kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Seminar Penilaian Keberkesanan Pelaksanaan Inisiatif Baru Mempertingkatkan Sistem Penyampaian Kerajaan di sini hari ini. Pekeliling mengenai arahan berbaju batik itu telah dikeluarkan dalam laman web Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA) oleh Ketua Pengarahnya, Tan Sri Ismail Adam. Menurut Mohd. Sidek, pemakaian baju batik tidak dilakukan pada hari Jumaat kerana ramai kakitangan lelaki mahu memakai baju Melayu pada hari tersebut. “Ini bukan arahan baru... kita cuma kembali pada sistem lama,” katanya.
Sebelum ini, pemakaian baju batik di kalangan kakitangan awam ialah pada hari Sabtu tetapi apabila hari bekerja sektor awam menjadi lima hari seminggu, ia ditukar kepada hari pertama dan ke-15 setiap bulan. Sementara itu, JPA dalam satu kenyataan hari ini memaklumkan arahan tersebut tidak terpakai kepada pegawai yang dibekalkan dengan pakaian seragam, pegawai yang menghadiri acara-acara rasmi seperti persidangan antarabangsa, perjumpaan dengan pelawat asing atau pegawai yang menghadiri majlis-majlis rasmi yang menetapkan pemakaian jenis pakaian lain - UTUSAN MALAYSIA
P/s: Hmmmm...Order from the 'Turus 1' boss...Kena ikut la jawabnye.
