Malaysians have finally developed a level of political maturity that led us taking our destiny into our own hands (or finger).
Having to put up with endless news of crimes, done by the people high up in the past Government of Malaysia, involving billions of Ringgit, it is the time for the people to overturn the ruling government.
The ruling government then, Barisan National or BN has been the ruling party throughout 61 years of Malaysia’s history.
Flickr revamped with a new layout. Bold, strong. Everything shouts loudness when you visit the site.
I have been a Flickr Pro user since 2005, and I can probably tell you the ins and outs of Flickr, and how to manipulate it.
While I love the new interface, I also hate it. The code is just rubbish, the site loads sluggishly and a whooping amount of RAM.
Then there is the CEO Marissa Mayer who bans telecommuting in Yahoo! just because she can build her own nursery in her office.

Certainly there is varying levels of skills, but we didn’t want to have a Flickr Pro anymore, we wanted everyone to have professional quality photos, space, and sharing.

Formally Professional Photographer.
(Update: Marrisa Mayer took it to Twitter to explain her remarks, however, I feel that she should address it as a statement than a @mention)
Remember that time? That time that the police forces shot tear gas into empty streets, that time when they acted like a hero with their heroic cry marching down the street.
This invasion by a group of foreign nationals threatens the safety of our country and citizens from external attacks. Instead of appropriate countermeasures by the military, the incompetent Home Minister want to showcase his negotiating skills.
The government bullies the unarmed civilians and when faced with armed intruders, their balls shrink.
For people who knows me well, know that I am not a fussy person.
My history with this company has been outstanding. Back when they spend hours of time wasting digging my knowledge about commercial photography, and using that as an excuse to ‘test’ my skills. Knowing earlier that it might be their trick, I inserted a few false knowledge which can be seen in their photography across the website up till today.
When I was living in Shanghai, the idea of shopping online incepted inside me like my subconscious, because the excellent delivery system that Shanghai has (order past midnight, item arrives in the morning) people in Shanghai do their shopping in the comfort of their homes. I personally enjoy shopping for groceries and have them delivered to my door step.More
