The drugs was hidden inside an umbrella: witness

Shah Alam - Two Philippine citizens were brought on trial for the second hearing this morning for the allegation of having approximately 500 grams of heroin pills when they were apprehended by the police on 29th November 2008.

Assistant Superintendent Nor Rashid in his statement said that the suspects were hiding the pills inside an umbrella that were carried by one of the suspect.

The defense, counsel Haris Salleh in his cross examine of the prosecutor's witness, question the reason why the police did not spot the packaging during the first sighting of the suspects.

"At first when we spotted the suspect, I did not see the packaging as the umbrella was on an upright position however, when we had put a closer distance, when the suspect slightly tilted the umbrella to be closed, then only I can see the packaging dangling from the top of the umbrella." said Nor Rashid

He added that when the second suspect handed the umbrella over to the first suspect, there was a noticeable bulge on the then closed umbrella.

Due to the absence of case evidence, the umbrella, in the court, the judge, Judge Datuk Siti Mariah postponed the hearing to the nest day at 10.

On the prosecution side was Deputy Prosecutor Ridha Abdah.

iPhone 4 Play

I have litle or NO experience AT ALL with iPhones. Although I totally dig the phone, although I really, really, REALLY want it, I can't afford to have it. So, I can only imagine, what it would be like IF I have DiGi iPhone 4.

IF I have an iPhone, my favorite apps would probably be the Apps for Cooks.

No, I am NOT a chef, or do I aspire to be one. But, I have A LOT of friends and acquaintances...

and I love to have a get together with all of them if at all possible.

and gatherings means showing off
i want to show off my iPhone too
gathering also means, FOOD.

So, the apps on iPhone will be PURRRRFECT for these gatherings. it has variety of apps for me to choose from.

need recipes from top chefs? I could always consult Jamie Oliver or Martha.

Want to do some grilling? drop by Weber's on grill

Want to plan an entire Dinner Party? Simple, Epicurious Recipes & Shopping List is always at hand.

Handy ain't it? I could prepare FOOD and SHOW OFF at the same time. Sounds like a plan to me.

If I have an iPhone, I could do a lot of things that before this I found it so damn difficult to do. Like the apps for the Great Outdoor could help me on my adventures And as a music lover, I would definitely appreciate the apps for music.

Of course, all of these only happen when and IF I have an iPhone, preferably IPhone 4. *sigh

I so waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant iPhone 4.

Malaysian Raya Mania

Malaysia is well known for its diverse culture and friendly as well as well-mannered people. However, these nice, friendly people gave way to a certain wave of manias that came when it comes to celebrating their ‘raya’. Each time there are festivities, no matter what celebration it is, may it be Hari Raya, Chinese New Year or Deepavali, Malaysian of all ethnicity and religion seemingly blends into one. All of them are ‘diagnosed’ as ‘raya mania’ positive.

#1 Everything-Must-be-New Mania

When it comes to raya, ‘everything-must-be-new’ mania seems to fall on every family home in the country. New curtains, new sofa set, new television, new furniture, new car, basically everything in view must be new – or at least look like new. Some goes to extreme of comparing with their neighbors who have the more expensive or the more beautiful or the more extravagant new things. A few days before raya this year, one of the top local radio station morning segment features the topic ‘lagak raya’ where the listeners would call in to brag about their coming raya preparation. Common sense would argue that no one would actually seriously call in to so, surprisingly a lot of them did. They talk about how many thousand ringgit they are going to spend on clothes alone, the ‘kuih raya’, and the renovation of house, buying new car and what not.

#2 Shopping Mania

Shop till you drop! (source)
This ‘everything-must-be-new’ mania is accompanied or perhaps the reason for the shopping mania. Everywhere, so called ‘sales’ and reduction of prize were being held by the sellers. Malaysians of all races, religion, and age comes out and endure the traffic jam and the human ‘sardines’ situation to grab the opportunity to buy things at a seemingly ridiculous discount. No one really cares that some of the sellers took this opportunity to actually mark up their prizes. No one really cares that the ‘discounted’ prizes are actually the same as the actual cost. By the eve of raya, the prize of these items went even more ridiculously low, up to 90% discount of the initial prize they offer. This shows how high the prize had been marked up. Of course, by the time of raya eve, no one really cares anymore.

#3 Need-For-Speed Mania

The Nightmare of every driver (source)
Another mania that could not be missed is the ‘need-for-speed’ mania that is extremely dangerous to the point of being fatal. Since festivities are one of the rare chance they actually manage to squeeze in time between their busy schedule to meet with their families and friends, all of them seems eager to get there quick. Thus, each year, during festivities, the accident statistics rise up and the awaited arrival becomes the heartbreaking departure. People seem to not care about road safety. When accidents occur, traffic jams are a definite sure thing that will follow. And thus many of them spend their raya in the car, stuck in traffic jams that take up hours of their time and cursing whoever caused the traffic jam.

#4 All-You-Can-Eat Mania

Malaysian Foods (source)
One more mania that is no alien to the Malaysian culture is the all-you-can-eat mania. Open houses and parties and family dinners become an excuse for the people to eat whatever and in whatever amount they wish. After one house serve ‘Nasi daging,’ the next one served Laksa, and the next one serve Mee Udang and the list just keeps going on. Although their stomachs are full, they kept on putting in more for the sake of ‘tasting’ and for being ‘polite’. No wonder the amount of people admitted to hospitals for high pressure, diabetes and the like kept increasing.

These manias that befalls on Malaysian each ‘raya’ celebration is actually a disease that infected most if not all Malaysian whether they realize it or not. At an escalated level, it could be a pandemic, and create trouble. 

There is nothing wrong to indulge oneself with some luxury once in a while but do it discreetly while considering other people and other factors as well. There’s no point spending each and every dime now to have such short-time luxury, when the next two or three months or year you need to be content with instant noodles and sky juice for lunch just for the sake of footing the bills. There’s no point in trying to get there fast if in the end, you ended up not getting there at all. Remember, safety comes first.

The Malaysian ‘raya’ mania probably won’t die anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean, we can’t be amongst the one to start first. Perhaps, our attitude will affect our family, and friends, and soon, everyone will practice the same thing. That may very well be a distant and impossible dream, but one cannot dream enough. So it isn’t such a bad thing. We just do what we can albeit slowly. After all, despite the manias and perhaps because of these manias that each and every year we continue to enjoy our raya holidays. And perhaps because some of these related characteristics, we were able to be who we were, Malaysian, one nation, one country, one Malaysia.

Especially for Girls and Maybe Certain Guys... *ehem *ehem

I bet you are wondering what the brat wants to write here right?

Guess what?

I do too... *smirk

Okay, okay, I'm going to my story already... sheesh, chill will you? :p

so on the eve of Raya, no, not the eve, but the last afternoon of this year's Ramadhan, I went to a place in Ipoh called Kompleks Yik Foong.

For those who live around Ipoh they are probably familiar with this place. It host the MOST INSANELY Low Priced and High Quality hair services - PERIOD.

Since 'straight silky hair' (guna jari pun boleh) are so in-trend now, the Brat had decided to went there for a Hari Raya hair.

After going around the complex, the Brat and her sister decided to drop by a Saloon by the name Chilli. btw, excuse the poor quality of picture. I'm using my phone camera (again)

The reason being,

#1 they offered us the best deal the whole day. Our long hair (a few inch past shoulder length) which would normally cost around RM200 for 'rebonding' in KL costs us only RM60 per head.

#2 the shop looks more organized and 'professional' than the others.

#3 the promoter (who apparently is one of the boss) was super friendly, and cute.

super friendly Kenny
#4 the reason why I said the posts is for girls - The hairdressers are all 'leng-chai'. Cute guys with talented hands. Irresistible.

The Super Friendly, funny hairdresser (my sister agrees with me) who I haven't got the chance to ask his name :(

My 'personal' hairdresser for the day, whose face reminds me of a blogger friend, Jfook (maybe the spectacles) and with a name that resembles yet another blogger friend, Joon Hao (his surname is Tan, and the blogger is Tham).

Tan Joon Hao. My Hairdresser for the day

He managed to change the unruly hair of mine

to a magnificent majestic crown on my head.

look! guna jari pun boleh...

***The pictures have nothing to do with the real brat's hair.

The Brat gives full 4 1/2 stars out of 5 to the saloon. Definitely going back there.
