My Bucket List

I had this bucket list in my head for a very long time. And I never really wrote it down. I didn't want to write it down on paper because once I scribble things off the list it's gonna get messy. So, I thought, let's use technology, mobile apps but I haven't really found an app that fits my liking.

Instead of procrastinating, I thought I'll just write it down here for the time being. Will keep this page updated from time to time.

It's Been A While Now.. (Again!)

Well, well.... We always meet up like this. After a long while... Well, I'll tell you a little what's been going on since my last post here.

Since my last post, I was busy with my wedding preparations. Yes, I've gotten married! In June this year. Then, went for my honeymoon and then settle down in my new house, unpacking and stuffs like that. So, yeah... It's been pretty busy for me.

Now that I actually got time to write, hopefully I'll be writing more often now (aside than the fact that I'm also writing lyrics).

So, anyway, my next post is coming up right after this. Go check it out!

YOUR PERSONAL DATA MAY BE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE!

Hell, yes! The title says it all. And by this I don't mean that you purposely put your information online for everyone to see. Sometimes, you just have to, like on Jobstreet.com.

So, today... I found out something. Occasionally, I would simply Google my name to see where my name shows up on Google search. Usually, I would see in on a newspaper website (oh, yes, I've appeared on National newspaper before) or some other sites I know I should have.

But today, I was shocked to see my name appearing on an unfamiliar website. And I was shocked to see how it had everything. Like literally everything about me. My name, phone number, house address, national exam results, university results (proud of my results, but still these should be private & confidential!),  working experience and even my election district! All of these are private information that shouldn't be online. It maybe be possible that all my university qualifications can be found online (as I have them registered on Jobstreet.com) but it sure as hell not possible to get my election district online! My election district should only be known at the government office.

The website is known as Infowys.com. Apparently they have people & company databases in quite a number of countries and these databases are actually sold on their website!!! How creepy can this be when you think about it?? Literally your data or someone you know can have your data available online and worst still, impersonate you. The website does have a privacy policy saying that it's a data-aggregator website with bots running around all the world wide web to search and compile the data on their website but it think that is just to save their ass.

Anyway, I'll make a report to SKMM but in the mean time, I did manage to see who the website belongs to. That is if the registrant information is right.

Malaysia - Happy Independence Day

So, the Prime Minister of Malaysia commented on the Bersih 4.0 rally saying kita nak sambut Hari Merdeka, ada pula orang nak tunjuk perasaan. Well, in my opinion, the Bersih 4.0 rally is done at just the right time, 2 days prior to Malaysia’s Independence Day. To me, the Bersih 4.0 rally coincides just nice with this year’s National Day theme “Sehati Sejiwa” (One Heart, One Soul). You can see many people, regardless of race and religion, even those in Switzerland and other parts of the world are fighting for justice and to end corruption in the country.

I don’t know about the rest of the Malaysian citizenS, but sometimes when I listen to those patriotic songs, tears fill my eyes – simple because I know many people have fought to achieve independence for Malaysia and it’s just a beautiful country. But then, as of today, it’s sad to see too much corruption, too much discrepancy.

Everyone knows that the government is not just. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be thousands of people participating in the so-called illegal Bersih rally. Well, when things get tough, we have to do the right thing to ensure that Malaysia, being our promise land is back to being a peaceful country, ruled justly and really unite as One Heart, One Soul.

May we, the citizens of Malaysia fight for a just and clean government that is not selfish or that works for self-benefit.

This is Malaysia, a beautiful and peaceful country, rich with cultures with a diversity of race and religion. May we fight to keep Malaysia as such.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, MALAYSIA
