Nuffnang Malaysia Youth Credit Card Design Competition Entry *by Blackmascara@Crystal_Ng*

This is my entry for Nuffnang Malaysia Youth Credit Card Design competition ^^o

My artwork is inspired by the phrase "Because you are young, you are torn between the world of hate and a world of dreams. So much to lose, so much to gain, so much to fight for, so much to change."

The butterflies symbolizes the multiple changes in our lives, letting go of old behavior and transpire to a new phase of existence.

I hope this fantasy-like design will be chosen by Nuffnang, I tried to create an artwork which is different from conventional credit card designs.

Thanks! ^^

Here is the design superimposed with the usual credit card details.

"Jophaboia" (fear of cakes)

On 16th November 2010, the cops were evywhere to stop citizens of Malaysia having cakes to celebrate a month old of an online protest for the proposal of a 100-storey megatower. It was just a peaceful n fun cake party but smhow d authorities sees it as a threat. Lol. And the vice president of UTAR Dr. Teh claimed that "all gatherings of more than 5 ppl in a public premis with a specific intention is illegal". @_@"

I noticed that most of the ppl in d online protest missing smthg. Like evybody else, are stupified by the gov's better judgements. Nobody mention about acts that concerns with the written law and constitution. I was reli wondering is it true I can't walk outside with 5 ppl or more? If its true, then I can't go to class, work in a same office with evybody else, or just for jalan-jalan la?

So I juz check in the internet. Apparently many ppl before this has joked abt this act for a long time ady, but nthg serious has happen yet. I found out smthg, so sharing it here.

Police Act 1967 (section 27a) stated that any mass gathering of more than 10
persons without permit from the Ketua Polis Daerah (Chief District
Police) for the same specific reason is illegal. Gathering without permit
can only be held at private premis.

For ur info, there r no Police Act amendment for the past 40 years eventhough we have changed 3 prime ministers. PM Badawi created the Suruhanjaya PDRM, PM Najib has always care for the "transformasi" but nobody bother to amend the Police Act at all. I feel that it's a big misinterpretation of a very outdated law.

The reasons that made me so against the proposed Megatower Warisan superstructure project

Here are why..

I've stayed in the vicinity for more than half of my life with my (late) dad and mom. I used to live in a wooden squatter house with zinc roofs, the place was demolished long time ago, and the incident does left an impact of despair for my family, I was very young then but I felt the loss of my home environment to which I've grown accustomed to. My dad was always feeling sickly and weak to work, he never go for medical checkups because he feels we couldn't afford any future medical fees. He managed to secured us to several flats but things happened, we have to move many times. It was a stirring childhood I have. Finally we settled for a home we stay til today, and also some small hawkering business at several parts of this vicinity. I finally grew up, and I still live there bcoz my mom passionately so used to this place, the business she and my dad built remains our livelihood.

Over the years, the place changes, well..knowing KL, traffic condition. Erecting another 100 storey mega-tower will be disastrous. Traffic will be on daily basis, inmovable for hours.

But that is the least of my reasonings for my protest at the proposed project. People all around are disatisfied with the project bcoz it took such a massive fund. But not all people will feel what the people who actually made their livelihoods at the very place the proposed tower is. The knowledge came to me just last night, from smbody I talked to at the political lectures at my home. I can hear their loud mic from my room.

I have no intrest in politics whatsoever, but I realize I can't be in the dark all the times. What I found out triggered me to write this, I've not written my thoughts and fears like this for a long time.

Apparently they are erecting the tower very near to the place where we are trying to find the next mouthful of rice over Jalan Pudu. How come there is no news or people from the government properly come consult with the local communities here, the traders who made their livings at both sides of the road? Do they seriously think people here are like cows, so stupid til the government can shoo us go anytime they like and want? This is one of the oldest part of KL, too. I feel like the history is going to repeat itself again.

These few nights, there are politicians (I used to care not who the FUCKK are they!) coming to the place I stay for lectures. My place is governed by an opposition party. People who had been to my place in Pudu will know that the place is now swarming full of prostitutes from mainland China.

It took me alot courage to try chat to the one of the man who said he is the one who can take care of us if we vote him. At the same time I have to conserve my words else the syndicates ppl undercover there might mistook me for talking abt them, one of these days they might get me killed or harm my family.

To be frank, I'm just an ordinary person and I'm concerned abt what would happen to my family who might face further hardships if the gov continues to turn deaf ears to us. The huge fund RM5billion for the tower does sounds alarming. They keep saying that it's their own private bumiputra funds. When I heard that, I wonder where does their money come from? I've so many negative n ugly answers for that, but I will not put it like the deputy PM put it.

Do you know the Deputy Prime Minister said that we non-bumiputras are 'jealous' of the Malay progress, thats why we opposed the plan.

My mom always lament abt the ever rising prices of evything, its not that she loves to complains..but things do get out of hand and we do suffers losses. I keep wondering why is it all the local products we use on daily basis are the ones that keep getting more expensive. Why is the tax for evything is so high? What is the reason for this? And yet the bumiputras at the PNB said we non-bumiputras has nothing to do with the tower building.

I had so many incidents before that concerns with me n my family not being bumiputeras. Thats why I feel even more uncomfortable with them planning to build this thing. What would become of us in the future, its scary. Its like, the gov is making the law as a 'blank check'. They can do whatever they want for their benefits, regardless of how alot ppl from low n middle classes are suffering.

I feel like 'kerajaan didahulukan, rakyat dipermudahkan'. Feels more like dictatorship.

PS: The budget 2011 do has alot idea from the so-called 'first lady' of Malaysia. Why else would PM Najib said smthg so fucking stupid like this during such a serious presentation?
"The items that gets tax reduction for 2011 are handbags, children clothes, purse, golf balls, syampoo, curtains, tableclothes, blankets, tshirts, fake jeweleries, face powder Telco brand, hair dye, bra and underwears.."

@_@" so I get to buy cheaper bra and underwears next year huh??

We Malaysians cannot have freedom of speech and share thoughts for fear of ISA come finding us, even if its smthg important as much as a plea. Even having a peaceful cake eating ceremony at a public place is apparently illegal now according to the Vice President of UTAR. Cops will arrest u if ur more than 5 persons together.

I just hope they don't kick us out of our livelihood vicinity soon.

What does my future holds for me, my family n fellow Malaysians who face the same problems as I do..

boku no namae wa joker des~

The first time I watched Dark Knight was almost a year ago, and during the time, I dun feel much bcoz I took it as entertainment and watching it for fun coz evybody's seen it but me. This is the 2nd time I watch this movie again, few days ago, smhow my judgements were difrent now, which I would like share my views here.

If you feel that Joker is a villain, Batman as an American hero, Alfred is the friend to that American hero (a british)'re right, and wrong! Haha. Batman is NOT a hero in Dark Knight at all. Eventhough the movie title point directly to Batman..he isnt the "hero" in my eyes ANYMORE.

I'm just training myself to be more "realistic" (not meaning that I duwana be like the neo-noir Tim Burton with his dark background and full of mystery sort) But I guess I just want a brighter background and less comical. Duwan always be in Batman's hiding ground. I think this movie really show the world who exactly is this "Batman"

I just wana talk about Batman and Joker here..

Harvey Dent is a mirror to this capitalist political world who is finaly disappointed with the ugly world of politic, and under the advise of Joker, he FINALY became a "Pejuang Rakyat" (ppl who fight for the right of the citizen)

Batman is teh alterego of this human call Bruce a Capitalist who is very powerful in Gotham City.

Joker is NOT a villain or a terrorist! He is a PEOPLE'S HERO who fight like a gerilla. No need to pity those Gotham ppl who fell "victim" to Joker bcoz they are bastards who put money as top priority, plus they are Capitalist! When I see Joker attact Bruce Wayne's party, he is attacking the Capitalist. B4 taht, he also attacked the police and judge. For Joker (the people's hero) these police and judge are like the "wayang kulit" (shadow puppets) controlled by the Capitalists who rulez Gotham city (which is true!)

My friend was watching the movie with me at the time too when I mentioned abt Joker being a HERO. They asked me, how can I call him a Hero when he can murder a whole ferry full of ppl? Well...its bcoz they are Capitalists! And I guess I can see how selfish these ppl are also.

There are 2 ferry. One with normal citizens. The other is prisoners. How come the normal citizens are so selfish til can say they should blow up the ferry with the prisoners? What an easy desicion for them to make! For them, tehy have to live on so that they can continue having their Capitalist descendants. But for the prisoners, they were fighting and arguing...until come to apoint, one of them throw the key into the sea and that, in my eyes, they are leaving it in the hands of the Lord. They know that they are the victims of the Capitalist (create hardships of life to many ppl) and caused them to bcome criminals (I mean, how many ppl would bcome a criminal for fun anyways)

Joker's fight has frightened the Capitalists until Batman has to create a new weapon. This is the world of these godamn Capitalist --> WEAPONS. This is what I think why Batman didnt kill Joker, bcoz Batman needed Joker to test his weapon on. Without Joker, his weapon is useless and therefore canot make it into a profitfull business.

Then to why Joker dun work well with mafia.. Hey, dun forget that mafia are also from Capitalist. But just bcoz they are not official registered, thats why they are mafias. In the end, Joker killed all these mafias. If mafia is a crime, in this movie, so who destroyed these criminals? Police? Batman? No...Joker did. Joker's mission is damn big. He will destroy the Capitalist to the super core! Blowing up a hospital is not the meaning of lost of humanity, but its a symbol of destroying the Capitalists who "makan duit rakyat" (take citizen's money more than it should) and "makan RASUAH"

This film shows Joker at his best. And God bless Heath Ledger too. RIP. He has carried out the character who is one of the best HERO ever!

In Malaysia, its not much difrent from Dark Knight. I feel that UMNO is like the Capitalist. And PAS is the mafia. Najib is like Batman who wana be a hero to destroy those who disturbs his businesses. Batman with all his weapons and gadgets, isnt it same like him who always buy weapons? This movie can dedicate to Malaysia's geo-politic bcoz he is the "dark knight"

To Malaysians, we should take Joker as a Sensei. Learn his "perjuangan"...his fight. He fight the mafia first. We as the Rakyat, we attack pekida first then the police and judge then umno!

Especialy the chinese ppl come other ppl thinking we so "goyang kaki" here just bcoz this ethnicity has conquered most of the lands and businesses in this beloved country we call Malaysia. But that will be in another story in another post later...

Ehhemm..Why so serious? ~>_<~

the real terrorists...

Israel is currently bombing women, children, religious centers and civilian neighborhoods in Gaza. Because their victims are Muslim, they think they can hide behind the "War on Terror" excuse.

What the hell?!
Children should have the right to live without fear and hate...
