CASTRO, CUBA. VIVA! VIVA!


Charismatic and enigmatic Fidel Castro. Dare against the (US) Goliath, a Zionist puppet.








With compatriot Ce Guevara (right). The latter's image till of late is marketable on T-shirts and posters.




Close Russian support - with Nikita Krushev, Russian Premier.  The times during the Bay of Pigs debacle, US failed to overrun Cuba.

Castro with Leonard Breznev, the successor after Krushev.

Camel ride, China.





Aging with worrisome look and feeling of uncertainty as to the future of his country.

Viva Castro! Viva Cuba!

ARE PIGS RACISTS?


There are various races of pigs eg. striped ones. 

Pigs are racists too for they band together according to breed. So are DAPigs racists.



This breed is just ugly. Must be an old boar.


Pigs breed by the dozen.


Pigs are among those of experimental animals. Others are mice, guinea pigs, monkeys, even human.


That is how pigs do it. Just conventional with grunts of course.



There was an obnoxious joke going round at one time. Before the Nipah virus attack, there were so many pigs in NS.  If they could vote, the MB would be a pig!

KING GUZ - SANUSI JUNID'S MENTOR


My guess is that King Guz was TS Sanusi Junid's mentor because he was admirably mentioned several times in the latter's blog.

Ghazali Shafie aka King Guz (right), Minister of Home Affairs at one time with Dato' Harun Idris, former MB of Selangor.

FLOM, DIAMONDS FOREVER


FLOM - First Lady of Malaysia.

"Diamonds are forever," but Najib is no James Bond.




Koh-i-Noor once belonged to the Mughals (?).


Elizabeth Taylor with diamond studded necklace.


The Kimberley Mines, South Africa the world's source of diamonds at one time, now closed.


The gem cutters are in Amsterdam. Who are they and who they work for?

PEMERGIAN ANWAR BAWA TIKAR BURIT


Dulu Dolah kata 'He got the best lawyers'. 
kini pembela uno, Karpal pun sudah pergi. 

Kalau lupakan sejarah dan ikut hati, 
pisang akan berbuah dua kali! 

Kenangan wajah2 zaman kegemilangan dan kejatuhan bercampur aduk - gembira, mercu, pahit, terkilan, kesal, tertipu ...

Selamat menjalani hukuman penjara nanti. Bawalah alas tidur - hadiah dari pendalaman Sarawak.

KELING RAYER IS NO SNAKE OR GODUMBU


Nature's misfit, a two-headed snake.


Snake like godumbu (biawak, iguana, monitor lizard) has forked tongue. 

Do not trust people with forked tongue. 


The forked tongue of godumbu.


Prowl like an owl, kill a snake. 


Not to be afraid of the snake. You must know how to handle a snake.


I rather kill the snake the instance I see it rather than let it slither on any part of my body.


 
Life in the kampong was very hard then. Appu and his Keling gang living in the estate nearby would carry a long bamboo pole with a wire loop at one end to catch godumbu climbing a coconut tree. They say the meat is good. Wonder how they prepare it.

There is a saying "Seperti mendukung biawak hidup" (Likened to shoulder a life iguana).
 
 
Jokingly people use to say, rather in bad taste though, if you see a snake and a Keling which one you kill first?

PRECARIOUS LIVING


The best of architecture is to challenge the elements of geography yet in harmony with nature. Give back to nature what it offers. The artificial beauty thus created should blend with the environment and living style. That what makes sustainable living.







The Dionysion Monastry on Mount Athos.






"Wonderful buildings," judged Babur (above) in 1528 as he inspected a palace constructed by a Rajput prince, Man Singh, within the hilltop fortress of Gwalior (left). Babur's eye compelled him to add, "in heavy and unsymmetrical blocks however." This Hindu architecture inspired the style of Fatehpur Sikri, exquisite new capital near Agra begun by Babur's grandson Akbar in 1571.

The desert can be hostile and unforgiving. Life is always a challenge against the forces of nature - extreme heat, harmatan, scarcity of food. Subject to severe tests humanity may fail. Survival becomes violent.

THE OTTOMAN FIGHTING MACHINE


The Janissaries - the Ottoman fighting machine.












The Ottoman invaded Hungary in 928/1521. At the Battle of Mohacs Hungary's army was destroyed and her cities were one by one reduced by siege. Here (above) the new artillery is brought into play. The Sultan consults with his advisers in a luxurious tent.
