It's like déjà-vu all over again!

Sigh.

Dream big!

Despite not being a sports fanatic, i'm still quite irritated whenever i come across articles and posts touching on my country's absence from the Olympics 2008. I mean right now i don't want to care about whatever reasons our Ministry of Culture, Youth & Sports comes up with anymore but i'm more annoyed with the fact that after this whole big messed up issue, i just realized that we, Bruneians do not dream big.

Why?

Because i know if there were athletes that have dreamt big enough of representing this country in the Olympics, there's bound to be more than 2 athletes that's 'qualified' to participate in the first place. Like really, out of the whole population of 400,000 people in Brunei, only 2 athletes are 'fit' to participate internationally initially but few days prior to the biggest sporting event in the whole world, our Ministry of Culture, Youth & Sports suddenly say they have not met the minimum required standards set to compete. Uh…

Mana kita?

We're FAMOUS!!
Man, i love my country's way of making itself to the news.

"Bah, nanti tah ku booking kita taraabang ke Cina...nanti tah...jom pergi minum dulu lah...mana Jing Chew? C.A Mohammad?"

Today's headlines...
A few reasons i can think of why the dude can't reach our team...

Maybe...just maybe he got the wrong country code.Team's already midway through flight.Miscommunication? I mean honestly, some of our English are quite hard to understand... Team decide to save a bit of budget and take Air Asia and transit here and thereNada kredit...Whatever it was, i sure hope our Olympics committee representatives have a very good explanation regarding this...

Meet little Ron...probably few weeks old after he was born.

Calculation:

Cost of camera then: BND$100?
Cost of Kodak film: BND$10.00
Cost to develop film: BND $0.30

Total 'cost' for the above picture: $110.30

Now assuming that the camera was 2 years old..so we depreciate that. Obviously the cost would be less than the above mention amount. Ok? Ok!

Fast forward..bla bla bla! Estimated value today:
$0.00-_-"


"In the case of the Jolie-Pitt twins, an unsourced report claimed the worldwide rights sold for $14 million, more than three times the rumored $4.1 million deal for Shiloh's baby photos in 2006. People has said that the rumored numbers for both deals, as well as those for other famous babies that have adorned its pages, are excessive. But it has declined to elaborate. "

Like seriously man, before these 2 babies can even say the word "Gu!", they're already worth million of dollars...! Like man! I don't get what's the hype with spe…
