What Every Voting Citizen Should Know

I found the following article and thought it might be useful to share it here.

What Every Voting Citizen Should Know

The Voter Agent training recently conducted at the PJ Civic Centre brought to the fore some very critical issues which every voter ought to know. These are as follows:

1. As soon as you enter the polling station, you will be ushered to Kerani 1, who will check your personal identity against your NRIC.
He/she will then read out your name, NRIC number and the Siri/Bilangan number in accordance to the list provided by the Election Commission (SPR).

2. Once all that is verified, Kerani 1 will pass your NRIC to the next officer, Kerani 2.

3. Here, Kerani 2 will hand you a ‘Kertas Undi,’ which is identified by its Serial Number.
As a voter, please know your rights. You have the constitutional right under our Election Laws to NOT accept the ‘Kertas Undi’ that the officer assigns to you. You CAN and should ask for a different ‘Kertas Undi’ from a different book.
To do that, just say to…

50 Quotes from Bill Gates

2.  "It's fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure."

3.  "Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose."

4.  "We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction."

5.  "Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs."

6.  "I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot."

7.  "I'm a big believer that as much as possible, and there's obviously political limitations, freedom of migration is a good thing."

8.  "If you can't make it good, at least…

Beauty in Nature

Lately as I look around, I noticed many interesting things but have missed it before.  
Take example how lights dance in the wind:

As the insects dance around the lights, you can see the patterns the insects make:

It was also interesting, that the color of this picture somehow creates a different color effect in the photo.

Even in the sky, we can see interesting design.  For example this eye in the sky:

Dong Zen Temple

Dong Zen Temple is a very popular place for photography and also for prayer.

See the video below, towards you end you will find a surprise.  Best part about the place is the entrance is free.

Park and Ride from Prai to Penang

Penang Government will be introducing a park and ride service for people staying in Prai and working on the Island.   This service will start on Mar 2011.  The commute will be from Seberang Jaya on the mainland to the factories in Bayan Lepas (including Sunshine in Bayan Baru).

The free bus service will run 6am to 9am and from 4pm to 7pm on Mondays to Fridays.

This is one of the Green initiatives of the Penang government as well as to help fight the increase in fuel prices.  This follows another initiative of no plastic bag for the supermarkets and fast food outlets.  This shows the political will of the local government to help save our environment and create greater awareness.
