Translating the Mozilla Add-ons website

I am currently heading the translation of the Mozilla Add-ons website into the Malay language. There’s a few reasons why I decided to do this: I was too free. (Not anymore) The latest upcoming Firefox 3.5 has over 70+ languages, including Bahasa Indonesia. The Mozilla Add-ons website even has translations for Suomi, Euskara, Dansk, and […]

Giving a gift of education

Many people do a little good and make a big fuss about it. Many people talk and preach to other people to do good, but he himself never does anything beneficial or contribute to the society. But there are some people who do a lot of good and bring a lot of benefits to the […]

Michael Heart – We Will Not Go Down

I have always believed that the crisis and war in Gaza are more than just a religious conflict. It is a crisis of humanity that warrants the attention and concern of every man and woman who upholds peace as a core value in his heart, regardless of his religion, race, colour, and nationality. This song […]

IB results and all that matters

Darn, I wish I could’ve posted this earlier. That server disruption is really a bummer. I would spare you all the drama and suspense of the night when the IB results for the November 2008 session are made available (go to Jon Mah’s for that). Instead, I would just go in straight away. I got […]

A friend of mine said to me concerning a very famous figure, “I wouldn’t say he’s noble, but he earned the trust of the people“. Now let’s not make guessings as to who that famous figure  my friend is referring to, since that would only sway our thoughts from the purpose of this post. Having […]

Let's spill some blood

When I grew up to be 18 years old last year, I had that joyful feeling (as everybody would) of having finally surpassed the legal age where you can do anything any other adult can do (except voting). And aspiring to be a good person (notice the word aspire), I started thinking, “How can I change the world?” Okay, a little bit over the roof, I admit.
