Pelita Hari Raya!!

Posted: October 12, 2007 in Macam-Macam

The way you lighten up Raya night beside ‘Bunga api’ and ‘Mercun’.. definitely by lighting the ‘pelita’ to bring more colors + light for tomorows Raya day. Eventhough, nowadays people prefer to use electric color light instead of pelita to make their Raya decoration more bright I still choose pelita.

Of course now It’s very hard to find those original home made pelita using bamboo.. so I bought the semi modern type instead. You can get many types of pelita in the market, most of them you can find at Parkson wawasan, Servay KK Plaza, Familia Merdeka Square. Some of them made by aluminum can, some by wood and even plastic. Last afternoon while shoping for the last day, i bought the cheapest one ever.. RM3.90 + 20pcs of Pelita (WOW!! That was cheap) plastic made pelita. Where? Milimewa..


I bought one plastic and there are 20pcs inside.. There are two colors available, Green & Blue.


How you assemble a pelita..


Here’s how, First you have to put and stuck the sumbu inside the sylinder given, until some part of the sumbu come out from the cylinder. Tips : if you don’t want a high flame just a small nice flame, pull the sumbu back inside the cylinder until only a little bit come out. After that put the cylinder inside the hole provided in the middle of the penutup. Later fill the kerosene inside the plastic pelita. now kerosene is lot much expensive compare to car pertol & diesel.. 1L of Kerosene will cost you RM2.20..LOL!! last time when I was kid the price is about RM1 per litter..


Treng! Ten! Ten! Teng! Teng! Behold, my finish assemble pelita.. Cantik kan!

Astronaut or Astrocannot

Posted: October 10, 2007 in What's Fresh


We are all proud of our first ever astronault, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor when he will be launch to the space this evening around 9.10pm for a 10 days mission on space. The launcing will be witness by the Prime minister of Malaysia, Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and with few hundreds of Science students in putrajaya later this coming evening.

Beside the glorious moment for the first Malaysian ever to be in space named on Malaysian history, there’s some controversial issues rise here and there if you’ve notice or not, amongs the pround Malaysian there are few of those that not really agree on the Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor going to space.. He is claim by other critics + bloggers to just wasting all the Malaysian citizen tax money for around USD26M payin his trip to space for having a cup of teh tarik and roti canai.. LOL!!


According to NASA’s (National Aeronautics and Space Association) official webpage, reported that 16 members of astronault, cosmonault, engginers and SPACE FLIGHT PARTICIPANT will launch the expidition from, Baikaonur Cosmodrome tonight. Now, if you’ve noticed that the issue gettin much interesting when NASA wrote on Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor’s profile as a SPACE FLIGHT PARTICIPANT and not as Astronault as what all the of us Malaysian claim as he is Angkasawan..




It clearly stated that Angkasawan in Malay means Astronault in English.

The space programme was first officially announced by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun. Dr. Mahathir Mohamad as a joint programme with the Russian Federation about few years ago. Eventhough the entire Malaysian space program which has been criticized since then but the programme still continues and tonight the history will be stated as it is! The programme was actually list down four participants Siva Vanajah, Mohammed Faiz Kamaluddin and Dr Faiz Khaleed and later finally comes to two where a 35 year old Ortopedic doctor from Seremban, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor was selected.

Well.. for me as a malaysian, for sure I’m myself proud of being Malaysian and proud for him to become the first ever Malaysian in space, and let our children continue his quest, that’s all what matters actually.

What about yourself?

Poor the wife.. she’s been so boring since this couple of weeks by being alone doing nothing wondering around while playing with mylo + Elma. I have left her into the world of boringness since I’m being packed with lots of design job pending to submit before this Hari Raya coming..

This is what I found on the table.. no wonder she’s asking me for an empty drawing paper and a pen the other day. (mmm.. bulih tahan jugak dia punya drawing nih!)



What can I do more.. I’m not a robot, even a robot also need to shut down and on again. If I have chance to choose a magic widget from Doraemon, I would like to have a duplicate of my self.. So I have myself doing the designing thing, and I have another one of myself washing the car, and I’ll have myself to company my beloved daring wife..

Sorry for the boringness situation, next week if free we go jalan-jalan cari makan ah!!

This was my first ever ‘jiwang’ post version..isk! isk!
