The Plastic Coding System

It is a fallacy that many believe if the plastic number is higher it is a better plastic. The different number code indicates the different uses for each type of plastic.

So if you want to carry water, PET 1 or PVC 3 should be good enough.

Altering Food Recipe is the new trend

I am sure you are all fed up, pent up and utterly disgusted with the China's Baby Milk fiasco. That has lead to many boycotting anything from China locally and companies producing and using milk products have suffered lost of sales.

The reality is China's Baby Milk fiasco is only a black spot of a more widespread trend.

Major food makers have been quietly altering the recipes for their products. For candy, dairy products, and a variety of other food products, fillers have been added and cheaper ingredients are being used as substitutes in order to cut costs.

Hershey's, as one example, is using vegetable oil for a portion of the cocoa butter traditionally used in some of its chocolates, a move which has led to some complaints.Spice maker McCormick & Co. is now supplying food companies with cheaper spices. They are providing Mexican oregano instead of the pricier Mediterranean variety, and garlic concentrate instead of garlic cloves, which are heavier and costlier to ship. (Sources: Wall Street Journal August 26, 2008)

Locally, Nestle has replaced dairy milk as a base of their popular Milo many years ago with palm oil. So the Milo that you grew up loving is now one that leave an oily aftertaste. The retail price went up but the quality isn't the same!

So i suggest one take a closer look at the quality of materials in the products you have been buying, rather than just checking to see if it is Made in China.

Why did the Chicken cross the road?

The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!

My friends, that chicken crossed the road because it recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure -- right from Day One! -- that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.......

We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing the road together, in peace.

I have just released eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part of the Chicken. This new platform is much more stable and will never cra...#@&&^(C% ........ reboot.

I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?

Chicken shall not shit while crossing the road. This is for a green environment.

We have installed crossing lights at all traffic junctions. All chickens should follow instructions while crossing the road.

Gantry points have been set up. All chickens wanting to cross the road are advised to top up their cash cards first.

What chickens? I don't know any chickens... especially those from Mongolia.

We have to be fair to all chickens. Some want to cross over the road, some do not. ........ Zzzzzz .......zzzzzz ....... Now what were we talking about? Ah yes, chickens. We will form a Royal Commission to decide whether it is right for them to cross the road.

Now even non-bumi chickens want to cross the road! How can they disrespect and disregard apa nama bumi chickens? We must be allowed to cross over first. It is our special privilege and no one can challenge that!

We have enough chickens waiting to cross over in September.

The Racist Rant

Video of the statements by the Racist Member of Parliament.

This video blatantly shows how recalcitrant the man is. The good thing is the majority of us aren't like this. But unfortunately, this is exactly the kind of propaganda that Umno and Biro TataNegara has been preaching for more than 20 years!

Is it surprising that this ugly head is now turning up in numbers?

Yes, we don't have to react to these folks as we Malaysians have already moved beyond race politics! And yes, he might be baiting some of us to react - and some political parties have already bitten the bait!

It is funny that a Professor from USM is calling this a form of mutated Mad Cow disease renamed as "Mamak Disease."
