The Golden Compass

Surprised to see this from the email:


There will be a new children's movie out in December called "The
Golden Compass". The movie has been described as "atheism for kids"
and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark
Materials" that was written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman is a
atheist and secular humanist who despises C. S. Lewis and the
"Chronicles of Narnia". His motivation for writing this trilogy was
specifically to counteract Lewis' symbolisms of Christ that are
portrayed in the Narnia series.

Clearly, Pullman's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote
atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he
in a 2003 interview that "my books are about killing God." He has
even stated that he wants to "kill God in the minds of children". It
has been said of Pullman that he is "the writer the atheists would
praying for, if atheists prayed."

While "The Golden Compass" movie itself may seem mild and innocent,
the books are a much different story. In the trilogy, a young
streetwise girl becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle to ultimately
defeat the oppressive forces of a senile God. Another character, an
ex-nun, describes Christianity as "a very powerful and convincing
mistake." In the final book, characters representing Adam and Eve
eventually kill God, who at times is called YAHWEH. Each book in the
trilogy gets progressively worse regarding Pullman's hatred of Jesus

"The Golden Compass" is set to premier on December 7, during the
Christmas season (and staring Nicole Kidman), and will probably be
heavily advertised. Promoters hope that unsuspecting parents will
their children to see the movie, that they will enjoy the movie, and
that the children will want the books for Christmas.

Also, pass this information along to everyone you know.This will help
to educate parents, so that they will know the agenda of the movie.
I am sending this to those of you who have influence with kids. So
many things today are darkness concealed in what appears to be

Don't let kids see "The Golden Compass"

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
