It should be a Happy and Lucky Month of August for most Chinese (8=Prosperity). But that doesn’t really works for me and my dear…
In the afternoon Sunday of August week one, when I was back from my hometown for visit my mom. I found my other wife (my scooter) got raped!! That’s not all, when I send my bike to the workshop day after. I was given a bill of RM370.00 (WTF… it’s only my front cover and a pair of signal light, scooter parts are more expensive and they have only original parts for your bike model suzuki VR125… said the mechanic).

And when I though everything will go well after that, my worst nightmare strike!! My GF got knock down by a motorbike riden by a STUPID Indian on her way to work while crossing road last Monday morning. But praise the Lord she safe. This is what actually happens~

My GF left home about 8am like usual. When she’s trying to cross a road to take bus to her office bout 8.15am, she got knock by a motorbike riden by an Idian guy and his GF crusing between cars cause it’s terribilly jam at the peek hour (what, they dont even have a scrathes) . Instanly my GF stand up to pick her shoes, bag and walk herself to the road side with bloody and swallon forehead and arm. While the Indian guy still shouting at my GF ; Are you blind? Who’s paying to repair my bike? How you want to settle this? NON-STOP.

At the moment I reach there after receving a call from my GF, (Normally I dont switch on my phone till I reach office, but that day was different) and when I saw her cover with blood, I really feel the ache inside me (praise the Lord again she’s fine now). Immediately I ran over to her sitting at the roadside, and trying to help her up and bring her to neardy clinic.

But when I was helping her to stand, the indian guy came forward and push me on my shoulder and say, how you want to settle this or want to make a police report? Then I reply him with making a police report will be better. And that’s when he push me again harder this time and shouted at me, what report report? I want you to settle it now. He get even more aggressive and wanted to wack me in the face when his other friend arrive and his GF stop him. I’ve got no choice seing my GF in pain, so I bring him to nearby workshop with 2 of his friend following together. After 5min at the workshop, I rush back to my GF and bring her to Hospital cause the local clinic said she need to take X-ray.

We made a traffic police report later that night after she rest enough at home. Since there’s still no respond from the police until today, I was just wondering ARE THEY REALLY DOING THEIR WORK? And the purpose for me to write this post is to ask public to BEWARE of this motorbike HONDA EX-5 (reg. no. WKL 2807) crusing around KL area (mostly Setapak) and I’ve attached some photo I’ve taken of the road bullies bike.

I was working late last thursday (so miss my dinner with my GF !) When I reach home I was so tired, but I’ve got a refreshment from my girl. Something that my GF found through the mighty YouTube.com , it really refresh me with his (name: 盧廣仲 ) humourious way of sing Vitas song (only if you know who he is) Haa…

Enjoy!

Raja Petra

Parti Pakatan Rakyat

I was kinda free last Sunday morning, cause my GF have to attend her company training (and I’m late for my Sunday Church Service too, shame on me). So once I’m out of the bed and get everything done, I just sat in front of my computer like usual.

While I’m browsing through the net, I found something interesting with the title Ahmad Shabery vs Anwar Ibrahim Debate on Oil & Economic Policies (Anwar debates rules).

Then with all the link here and there, I reach a blog of the popular blogger and political commentator Raja Petra Kamarudin, 58, was imprisoned charged with sedition for having written a blog post (this the first time I know about this popular guy, again shame on me) He’s the editor of MalaysiaToday.com. After viewing some recent unfilterized youtube debates, interviews and their blog post, I fully agree with what they has to say and offer to this country.

**So this is my offering to those dedicated Raja Petra & Pakatan Rakyat fans. Drop me a mail/comments if you wish to show your support by owning this T-Shirt taurus_matt@hotmail.com. Cause planning to print in Bulk so can get cheaper price mah!

In my previous post, I’ve mention that I’ll be submitting my entries to foldees.com ( agreat site for cool custom greeting card’s MADE IN MALAYSIA). I was soo… busy, till I’ve only manage to submit it on the last day. Everything was so great, untill I got notice my design was out of TOPIC (Grr… there’s go my WACOM)

Anyway that’s my fault for not reading the contest properly and submitted it too last minute, so my advice for other future participant (submit it once your work is finalised and people at Foldees.com will try the best to help if there’s any ammendment to be made).

In the meantime I would like to congrats those who won and try again next time for those who didn’t make it (I mean me too). Here I would also like to congrats and thanks them at foldees for their great works! (Although there was a 24hours delay forgive them this their first time mah, khek…) Cheers Bro

So, I wont be posting my submission layout untill the next contest in September can’t wait

No!!!! Actually I’ve been having problem after trying to customs my CSS WPtheme (But only for the first 3monts, the other was being busy and lazy). So my advice never ever try to be smart when u’r not! But at last, I’m back!

I’ll try to post the work I’ve done for the past few months start tommorow, cause it is kinda late now! (excuse for being lazy again)

I was so lazy last weekend!!! End up just browsing through the net… But found 1 interesting article posted by one of my company long time customer KAY – FigTree Design

Da Vinci Code

Is the above typesetting pleasant to the eyes? It better be – as it is set according to the “divine proportion”, ie: the PHI, as according to Professor Langdon.

Many years back I first read about setting type sizes as according to Fibonacci series. I didn’t really think much about that until the Dan Brown phenomena kicked in. Now that everyone is into cracking codes, it is time for me to revisit Robert Bringhurst’s insightful writings on the golden proportions.

That mysterious divine proportion of 1:1.61803. In layman english: the smaller part is roughly 38.2% and the larger part is 61.8%.

What you see above is the little experiment as typographic hierarchy expressed via type sizes chosen as according to the golden section, via a Fibonacci series:

5 . 8 . 13 . 21. 34 . 55 . 89

These type sizes whould be sufficient for most works.

Other scales could be created via the same series:

6 . 10 . 16 . 26 . 42 . 68 . 110
4. 7 . 11 . 18 . 29 . 47 . 76

Page sizes could also be determined as according to this relation. For many centuries Penguin books had been manufactured as according to 111 X 180 mm.

111 x 1.61803 = 179.6 (!)

Which also means a better height to accomodate the standard A4 width of 210mm is

210 x 1.61803 = 339.8
