I came across this while browsing through the zubedy website (http://www.zubedy.com/) and I thought, heck, this is what we all Malaysian citizens really want.

We don’t really care whether it’s BN or PR ruling Perak, who the speaker is or what car they are driving. We just want to lead our normal daily lives, earn some cash, and read some more interesting articles in the newspapers instead of rubbish like someone being dragged out of a chair. At the end of the day, we need to to eat and feed our family.

Thanks to Anas Zubedy, for this simple, yet true-to-heart letter. The original post can be found at http://www.zubedy.com/appeal.htm

Have a meaningful Malaysia, by zubedy

On a sidenote, do checkout zubedy’s new book, titled ‘Have a meaningful Malaysia‘. It is a collection of past zubedy advertisements which contain really interesting yet simple messages/lessons for us to lead a better and more harmonious life. It is priced at RM46.00 and can be found at all major bookstores (I got mine from KLCC Kinokuniya). If you can’t afford it, feel free to photocopy it from someone (or me, in that case) because zubedy won’t mind.

Excerpt from the blog:

If you really cannot afford RM46.00 for the book (one ringgit for each year since 1963 – the year Malaysia was born), go ahead and borrow one from a friend and photocopy it. I do not want you to feel guilty doing it. Only one for your own use, okay.

Save The Marriage Ebook tent/uploads/2009/05/dsc07618.jpg”>Pure Vibracion - Love and Peace

Pure Vibracion launched their very first album titled Love And Peace at the end January at Urbanatic, CapSquare (wasn’t free to cover it though). Yes I know it has been a while since the album has been released, but I have been too busy running around town covering events and meeting clients to actually sit down and review it. Much thanks to Bob of Laguna Records for passing me this CD (and I got it autographed by Joe and the crew as well!).

Their style of reggae is very much different compared to that of Republic of Brickfields, where Aru sings a lot like singing. In this album, Joe does sing as well, but in most songs, he does the other style of reggae, narrating style. One thing that makes Joe stand out is his airy voice, which makes him sound older and more mature.

This album weighs in at a near healthy 11 songs and the CD is an enhanced CD, with a music video in it with a couple of other extra information and photographs of the band.
