Ops Hempit 01

Enough is enough...

Yesterday was once again a day that shows the developing illegal and absolutely stupid culture of the Mat Rempits - or rather the pathetic motocycle gangs of low cc bikes. Another one of my close friends was harassed by the pathetic people - and she arrived at her home with a battered car and totally shaken. That brings a total of 5 people in my circle of friends that has a close encounter with a Rempit gang (not including myself - a small incident of them trying to cut in front of me but were no match for my 2500cc XG down the LDP)


Announcing - mirroring the police Ops Sikap - OPS HEMPIT 01... (basically OPS SQUASH 01)

We need to fight back - have no qualms now my friend - if they try to batter ur car - don't try and rush off... accelerate and break and knock these idiots off their bikes... if they get run over - they would be the best roadkill decoration on top of The Star's front page!!!

Confiscate their bikes and cross us not - we will confiscate ur lives...

Shutterbug 01: Footprints in Paris...

As I am finally back in Malaysia *grin* It is time for me to share with you all my escapades in Europe. A series of 'shutterbug' pictures will slowly make its appearance on this blog as time progresses...

Let me introduce some photos taken in Paris this time...

Paris was, as envisioned, a wonderful city with character - and I feel priveleged to be able to walk through its narrow streets with my ever beautiful Hwa beside me. We walked around the feet of the Eiffel, climbed the steep steps of Montmartre, gazed under the vaulted ceilings beneath Notre Dame de Paris and walked in the footsteps of art lovers at the Louvre...

So here are 3 pictures for your consumption.

The onion domes of the Sacred Heart with the Montmartre Art district in the foreground. Near here is the Salvador Dali Museum (of which Hwa adores and I look around in confusion), Le Chad Noir (the Black Cat) and the Paris street painters.

The 'Vaults of Heaven' within the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. The details of the windows are amazing, together with the frieze surrounding the choir and the statues of French saints and tombs of people of note.

On the pathway to the Louvre Museum... The Louvre was the royal seat of the French kings from the medieval period (this was the site of a chateau or castle) right up until Louis the XIV, Le Roi Soleil, who moved it to Versailles. It was given to the French people as a Museum and now houses works like Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and artifacts like the Winged Victory of Samothrace from the Greek ruins in the Mediterrainean.

That is all for now... I will put up more pictures really soon.


It begins! It begins!
