It is quite amusing to me that the most popular topic in social media today is “oil price hike“. Almost every Whatsapp group that I am part of talks about the RON97 gasoline MYR0.07 price increase! The ups and downs of fuel prices in Malaysia should not surprise us because many elements contribute to the volatility, not only in my home country but also globally. In short, the upward trend is not so surprising because of the geopolitical events around us.

About two weeks ago, I presented a paper to “a curious group of students” who wanted to know about the oil and gas industry. The presentation was made online, live via google hangout and a youtube channel. I think that the event went well, and so was my performance!

Part 3: Malaysia is one of the most respected Muslim countries in The World and here is why!

I have traveled to some places including most of the South East Asian countries and the Far Eastern too. There’s no doubt that these countries have a lot in common with Malaysia especially if we talk about the Nusantara countries like Indonesia, Brunei, Southern Thailand, and Singapore. Even if we visit nations like Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Timor Leste, there are still some similarities.

Part 1:

One day, there were three people who were called Nick, Jake, and Zak. These three people went camping.

Nick said, “let’s go camping in the woods”. Jake and Zak agreed. They drove to the woods and went out of the car. Nick, Jake, and Zak went in the woods and started camping. Nick was just getting some sticks. Jake and Zak were setting up a camp. When Nick went back to the camp, he threw all the sticks on the ground. Nick used his lighter to lit up a fire, and it worked. Jake brought some marshmallows to eat, and Zak brought some fishes to grill as well.

PEACE, KEAMANAN SEJAGAT – APAKAH SUMBANGAN KITA SEBAGAI RAKYAT?

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Keamanan,

“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people”
(Rakyat tidak sepatutnya takut akan kerajaan. Kerajaanlah yang sepatutnya takut akan rakyat.)

“Peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice.”
(Keamanan ialah bukan ketika tiada peperangan, tetapi ketika keadilan diwujudkan.)

Dua ungkapan di atas amatlah bersesuaian dengan topik kita pada kali ini, iaitu keamanan. Hati dan minda kita begitu peka terhadap keadaan yang tenang dan teratur, kerana ianya memberikan keamanan ke dalam jiwa kita. Keamanan itu, jika hilang daripada kehidupan seharian kita maka hati dan jiwa kita akan menjadi sakit, tidak tenteram.

This is ‘The Chronological of Events’ from 1992 to 2001 (and extended). This is a classic case of “From Hero to Zero“, but who knows, it can turn out to be “From Zero to Hero” again very soon (if you know what I mean?) *sigh*

So, please go figure and connect the dots.

These facts were painstakingly collected and researched from various reputable news sites around the globe (see references at the bottom of this article):

ENJOY!
