World Aids Day!!

As I wake up this morning i make it a point to let everyone know what today is. I have realized that it is in the society that i live in that no one care about educating themselves on this crucial matter, they live life( ignorantly thinking it does not concern them) day to day having unprotected sex, selling their bodies for not more than 20 buck even some of the doctors attempt to use the same needle on different patients *gasp*! So here is my little piece of encouragement and enlightenment for all who might be oblivious to this matter.

world

 

World AIDS Day is celebrated on December 1 each year around the world. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories such as increased access to treatment and prevention services.

UNAIDS took the lead on World AIDS Day campaigning from its creation until 2004. From 2004 onwards the World AIDS Campaign’s Global Steering Committee began selecting a theme for World AIDS Day in consultation with civil society, organisations and government agencies involved in the AIDS response.

Themes run for one or two years and are not just specific to World AIDS Day. Campaigning slogans such as ‘Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise’ have been used year round to hold governments accountable for their HIV and AIDS related commitments.

It is such a shame to see that the people around me, people in my environment do not even know the symptoms of AIDS, they do not even know it is contracted, they just believe its a disease for homosexuals(yes still on that train) or for bad people, or even for non-Muslims(i live in a Muslim country, Malaysia and i’m surrounded by Arabs, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and of course Malaysians). It even hurts me more when they stupidly believe only Africans have AIDS( I mean what kind of fucked up ridiculousness is this!!).

Anyway, on this day i hope we an all learn a little bit more about this pandemic and educate as well as protect ourselves.

The man behind the evil..

For weeks now i have debated commenting about this topic.. Avoiding it at all costs, but i just can not stand being silent anymore..

As we all know and have seen a few weeks ago an anti Islam trailer was released and things went from zero to 100 in a matter of hours.. Americans in Arab countries died because of this film, Muslims were insulted because of this film, friendships deteriorated because of it and violence erupted all over the world against anything American was on an all time high.

His crudely made 13-minute video was filmed in California and circulated online under several titles including “Innocence of Muslims.” It portrays the Prophet Mohammad as a fool and a sexual deviant.

The clip sparked a torrent of anti-American unrest in Egypt, Libya and dozens of other Muslim countries over the past two weeks. The violence coincided with an attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Personally i do not really want to comment on the film its self because it was not only respectful, but very cheap looking and obviously ridiculous!

I believe that this man is evil and deserves more punishment than he is getting because he cause a world wide controversy, caused deaths of countless people in many different countries as well as the fall out of many companies( like macdonalds and KFC being burned down in Pakistan). The man behind this evilness was arrested on Thursday in California for allegedly violating his probation, and a federal judge ordered him jailed without bond.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was taken into custody at an undisclosed location by U.S. marshals and brought to court in Los Angeles still wearing his street clothes but handcuffed and shackled at the waist.

Nakoula has been under investigation by probation officials looking into whether he violated the terms of his 2011 release from prison on a bank fraud conviction while making the film, though authorities have said they were not probing the movie itself.

“The court has a lack of trust in the defendant at this time,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal said in refusing Nakoula’s request for bail at a hearing in U.S. District Court.

Animal Protection In Malaysia..

Over the last 4 years that i have been a student in Malaysia i have been witness to a wide variety of animal abuse here. And don’t  get me wrong, i’m not saying this is the only country where animals are abused, but it is one of the countries which do not necessarily have strong laws against such acts of abuses and the little laws that do exist are rarely ever enforced.

*Disclaimer: The videos in the links might be hard to watch..

2 weeks ago a horrifying video of 2 Somali students throwing a small helpless puppy into a manhole surfaced and caused an up raw among the students and all people living amongst these monsters. To see the video you can go to the link below..

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150981962112135

The Somalian student was entrusted by his friend to care for his puppy during his absence as he went on vacation to his home country(Jordan), the guy trusted with taking care of the puppy threw it into a manhole with the help of another perpetrator while a third man recorded it on his phone as they laughed,joked and enjoyed the themselves while torturing it..Having left Malaysia in June for a month-long holiday, Mostafa entrusted his Somalian friend Mohamad Hasan to care for Kanilla in his absence.

The story was reported as it shows below on a single small space in a newspaper:

“On Mostafa’s return, Mohamad told the former that Kanilla had gone missing,” said Shenaaz.
However, Shenaaz said that another friend of Mostafa had downloaded a video showing Mohamad and another Somalian, Ahmad Subair Addirahman Mohamoud, throwing the docile mutt into a manhole. The duo are said to be students at the Malaysian Multimedia University (MMU).
Shenaaz said that Mostafa had lodged a police report on the matter at the Cyberjaya police station three days ago. She urged the authorities to take action against the Somalians and claimed the duo had threatened Mostafa for making the report.
“The duo threatened Mostafa for putting the picture clippings of their heinous act on Facebook,” she alleged.‘Take immediate action’
FMT checked the video which runs for 1 minute 50 seconds, showing Subair holding the puppy while Mohamad hurled profanities before throwing the dog.
An unknown cameraman told the duo, “Okay, hurry up. Just do it and then we run like nothing happened.”
Later, Mohamad faced the camera and said, “F… this dog. This b…. is dead.”
The duo then threw Kanilla into the manhole and ran away while laughing.
The duo’s act drew ire from Facebook’s users, with many calling for the police to take immediate action against the Somalians.

Now the boys have effectively disappeared, dis-activating their facebook accounts and also moving out from the apartments they used to live in in the Cyberjaya area.This story hurt me dearly, i hate it when i see poor helpless creatures being hurt by us humans just because we are somewhat stronger and they are at our mercy. Of course as with all situations we as humans always have to lose perspective and start making the issue what it isnt, people started bringing up the race card( saying its because they are black, calling them f’ing n****), and then they brought up the religion card( saying these guys are brutal because they are muslims, which has nothing to do with the situation what-so ever)

Now the one bad thing is that the authorities where told here in Malaysia but nothing was done, which isn’t really much of a surprise, nothing is ever done here. It is the same situation as the video where a Chinese man was abusing a small cute poodle because he wanted it to stand on its hind legs and when it wouldnt he slapped it around( ridiculous i know :-/ )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP08cn-IsbQ&oref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fresults%3Fsearch_query%3Dchinese%2Bman%2Babuses%2Ba%2Bpoodle

It is not only house pets being abused, also animals in zoos, just as there was a story where a tiger was starved and abused for months just so that it can be dormant and lifeless for people to take pictures with them. I just wish laws in this country could be modified and changed to actually protect animals, not just to “pretend to protect the animals..

I ranted a bit i know.. but i just had to let it out.. 🙂 I mean look at this face, who would ever want to hurt it.. ?? :-/

FOR SHAME MALAYSIANS, FOR SHAME!!!!

Notice: this might be offensive to some people, but if you know you are not like this then please know it does not have anything to do with you..( and im not saying all Malaysians are like this, im just stating my own experiences here and the forum says it all!!!! the proof is in the forum!!)

For shame Malaysians, for shame, how dare you open a thread on a forum just so that you can bitch and moan about foreign students!!! wooww!!! To say you guys are racist, annoying, uninformed, dumb is an understatement.
I found a forum where Malaysians go to complain about international students ruining their country.. The link is below
So its a pretty long list of dumb comments on this, so i will summarize the worst of all.. This is what started the whole debate..
Dear all,
I wish to alert all potential investor/buyer to avoid below condos/apartments which are flooded by tons of foreign students (especially African). These are only I know but I believe there are many more….please share your knowledge as well.
Cyberjaya – Cyberia townhouse and Crescent, Cyber Heights Villa, Domain
Puchong – Desa Millennia, Desa Idaman, Desa Impiana, Koi Tropika, Some apartments in Bandar Puteri, Koi Kinrara, Koi Legion, Heron Residency
Subang – USJ One Avenue, Casa Subang, Impian Meridian, Suriamas, Ridzuan, Subang Avenue, Casa Tiara, E-Tiara, Lagoon Perdana, Springvilla condominium, Summervilla, Boulevard, Rhythm Avenue
PJ – Casa Tropicana Condo, Metropolitan Square Condo, COVA SUITE, Riana Green, Flora Damansara
Cheras – Condo Angkasa, Seri Cendekia Condo, Venice Hill 
Bukit Jalil – Vista commonwealth, Arena Green 
Others – Taman Melati – Platinum Hill projects (filled with them), Setiawangsa – Seri Maya (overflowing), Sri Rampai – Desa Putra Condos (signs are beginning), Titiwangsa Sentral, Kepong Metro Prima, Tmn Tun – Desa Kiara Condo, Seri Kembangan Juta Mine condo
 So basically apparently when it comes to real estate and development in Malaysia if a foreigner, especially African or middle easten stays in an apartment, it depreciates!! Dumb ignorant people!!!
Below are some of the comments which really pissed me off
1. because their country is rich with diamond, gold and oil, Malaysia government is envy their arrival here for education to boost the dollar income. If you want to stop this flooding once and for all, make sure you know who to vote for in next GE. Bijan is just another stupid space goat for BN.
Listen your government is doing all Malaysians a favor by bringing students here to study because it boosts your economy, frankly without Foreigners Malaysia would be nothing because you are a lazy and selfish people who do not wish to work hard, or even to think of ways to improve your country!!
2.Tht’s the problem with Condominium. And they seems conquer all the condominium/Apartment/Flat..
Believe me when i tell you, no international student wants to stay and work in this country when we finish with our studies.. We want to be out of here the day we are done!!
3.spoke to a lecturer from MMU.. man.. not only curly hair, those from ME also cant study well here and brought down the standard of the uni.. more than half of the class fail.. and the are the majority in IT classes.
Which ever lecture you talked to must be as uneducated and as racist as you because Malays are the one who stay in MMU for long periods of time without finishing, and the university standard does not have anything to do with international students.
4. If like that everywhere oso hv to avoid lor except the high end condos like klcc, mk and dpc. Else, the negros and MEs are everywhere.
This is just plain racism in its very severety!! How would you guys feel if someone called you banana, or bug eater or budhahead or dog-muncher or anyone of these bad racial slurs!!!
It is never OK to call someone by a degrading name, regardless of what you think of them. We are all people, we are all human, and the fact is foreigners make Malaysia better, without foreigners here the real estate market would plummet because there would be no students to rent the houses owned by the Malays and they would make loses. Without students here there would be no new apartment structures being built and developing the country!! And if you do not want to live near foreigners anyway then why come to a city ( Cyberjaya) which was built specifically for students??
In all of my life i have never been around people who are so ignorant, close minded, infuriatingly racist towards all other nations, lazy and freakeshly dumb and uneducated about other cultures !!!!
But then again we can not change or improve you people, i mean what do you expect from a Nation which can not even come together and keep racism alive between them. All you Malaysians(Malays, Chinese and Indians ) hate each other because of your race, skin color or even religion, you are a lost cause and there is no hope for you in the future to be an open minded, non prejudiced, educated and loving nation!!!

Utter Ridiculousness

Today i saw a debate in another blog which might be a little bit controversial because it talks about the two reasons that make people hate each other around the world day in and day out. RELIGION and RACE!! So ill try to be as sensitive, unattached and objective as i possibly can. So basically the gist of the debate was ” what race ( or skin color) was Jesus Christ( the christian prophet). I don’t really understand the obsession that the world has with trying to figure this out, does it really matter??? Because frankly to me it makes no difference and it has been stated that he was born in Bethlehem meaning that if we were to really look at this race wise then it means he was of middle eastern descent( that is he was Arab). This will probably piss many people off since right now the most hated race in the world is Arabs ( because of the alleged suicide bombing and Islam that is( no offence to middle Eastern or Muslims)) Some people say he was white( Caucasian) or black ( African) which in all honesty is ridiculous. Why do we have to be so concerned about what skin color he was, is all that the world cares about skin color, does it make him any less prophetic if he was a race we dont particularly like? This is the kind of discussion that escalates racism and hate around our lives.

Why cant we just believe what is written in the holy books and love each other and live in peace regardless of what race we are??

Racism At An All Time High In Malaysia…

Normally i don’t really like to talk about racism because it exist in every single country, in every single second, i can take the constant stare and wonderment, the believe that i have a pet lion ( lol, yes that is really what they think ) or the insufferable way they believe it is ok to call you the N word as a joke, but i just had to say something about this. For the past 3 weeks it has been pretty hard for any black person to walk freely in the streets of Malaysia because for some reason the immigration department in Kuala Lumpor ( the capital city) are conducting raids and the people they are targeting are black people. Of course they cover it up by saying they are conducting raids on all foreigners, but the fact of the matter is they only arrest black people. They are not giving reason as to why, but they have started arresting even students and random other people just walking the streets. To be safe now all Africans have to always have their passports on them at all times when they are not in their work places, Universities or their homes. This in turn makes it very dangerous because at any point the passports could be lost, or even stolen, if by some chance you are caught and you have no passport on your person, you are taken to jail until official documentation can be shown to prove that you are in the country legally.

I mean if you are going to monitor every black person in your country, then have the nuts to just state that, do not hide behind the lie that you are monitoring all foreigners. I believe that as we get into a new era, racism is becoming stronger and now people feel it is fine to act like this because they hide behind fancy laws.

As a black person living in Malaysia as a student i am affected by this, but thank fully i have not had to experience the detention or the questioning, i still always hope and believe that a time shall come that we will all live happily together regardless of our nationality, skin color, religion and any other obstacles that make us hate one another. Most call it naivety, and maybe it is, but if i didnt believe that things will get better, or that humans will become more accepting and love one another, then i would not be able to survive in this world.

Of course i believe if some one has done something wrong( broke the law of the country) then they fully deserve to be punished for their crimes, but if its just an innocent student, or law abiding citizen, i do not see the point for these racist acts by the immigration department and the police.
