Christmas for Payatas

The video depicts the harsh conditionthe people has to face everyday. Imagine if you have no money to buy food and your only way to survive is to go to the huge and smelly rubbish dump to dig for food and materials that might be sold to gain a little money. Many people including politicians,entrepreneurs and even footballers like Ray Parlour from Arsenal and Lee Sharpe from Manchester United are contributing to help the poor. Don't just stare at your monitor screen! Do what you can! Hop over to and make a donation!

The landfill in Payatas, The Philippines, is notoriously known the world over as Smoke Mountain. For over 35 years, the smoking dump site has grown to become a stark and heart-tugging reminder of the desperate conditions of humanity.On a daily basis, children pick through newly arrived garbage to collect material to sell. The earnings made by one child are not enough to even buy food for the day. Hence, entire families are forced to climb the mountain each day, hoping to earn enough to feed everyone. Children as young as four years old are forced to work in this daily struggle for survival. 

You can actually forecast whether london will snow on Christmas day and actually win a bet! 30% of the proceeds will go to Christmas for Payatas. You can make your bet by clicking here or click on the image below!

Fire in Arena Green

The day before yesterday, there was a fire in Arena Green Apartment, Bukit Jalil. The unit involved was in Block F. I was sleeping at that time because I was so tired from the previous day, I slept from 8pm till 8am. Non of my housemates knew about it until yesterday. I am living 2 apartment blocks away so we had no idea. I actually found out when my classmate AbdulMajed was having a chat with me yesterday morning.

The fire brigade was here for the rescue!

Apparently many residents came down to watch the fire.

According to a resident Jerry Ling said that when the fire brigades was trying to pump water into the fire zone, it squirted several times instead. The civilians were laughing their ass off having to witness that hilarious moment.

I guess it hadn't been in use since it was created?

Last Saturday, after the MAPCU Volleyball Competition in Nottingham University in Semenyih, I rushed home to take a bath and fled to Cineleisure immediately to attend the Tribe Toyota Bash. The event is basically a "Give Back to Society" social responsibility project by UMW Toyota.

Dance Performance in Toyota

Josh directed me to the reserved parking and we went in together. There were some dance performance to entertain the crowd.

Toyota VIOS

Had a look at the Toyota Vios which is exactly what I need to commute around town.

Fun Games Nintendo Wii Sports

Event organisers had Nintendo Wii Stations to keep not just the kids occupied but also to allow some adults to indulge in the fun of some Wii Sport.

Toyota Hilux Strongest Man Competition

Here comes a mini version of Toyota Hilux Strongest Man Competition. If I didn't have my camera in hand, I would've jumped onto the stage..LOL

Toyota Hilux Strongest Men Malaysia

The participants from all over the country including one guy from Sabah that came all the way down here with the host Belinda Chee.

Toyota Hilux Uncle Strong Man Tyre

The task was to carry the tyres around the cones and put them on the other side. I seriously think I would've won if I joined. :P

Largest Logo Made of Recyclable Cans Toyota

Here's the climax of the night!
The Biggest Toyota Logo Made of Recyclable Cans made its mark in the Malaysia Book of Records with 22,000 recyclable cans. The gigantic Toyota logo measures over 32 feet in length and 20 feet in height. This broke the record made by students in Damansara Utama in 2005 using 7,512 cans.

The Malaysia Book of Records certificate is presented by MBR Offical Ricky Yap tp Mr.Kuah Kock Heng, managing director of UMW Toyota Sdn Bhd.

UMW Toyota Motor Yayasan Anak Warisan Alam Mock Cheque

UMW Toyota never fails to contribute back to the society. This was the cheque presentation to Yayasan Anak Warisan Alam(YAWA). YAWA is a Youth Foundation that instills an appreciation of the environment through environmentally-orientated activities to the youth community.

I grabbed this group picture from Rames. There were other bloggers there which I didn't get to meet, hopefully next time. xD

This pretty much sums up the event, I'm awaiting Uncle Josh to send me the photos of me doing rock climbing over there.

After that, as I was strolling in Cineleisure, I saw this crowd outside of a game shop. I stopped for a while to see what's happening and guess what?! They're jamming with Guitar Hero! Besides the guitar, bass guitar and drum set, they have vocals as well!!! How cool is that? I wish I have a Guitar Hero band! :P

Blind Man and Sending off my Alpha

Blind Man Painting
Picture source:

Last Tuesday, I took the KTM to Midvalley. I spotted a blind man waiting for the train. He was an old Malay man. His eye lids were sunken because he had no eye balls. This is not the first time I've seen blind people taking the train. I like to observe my surroundings. When the train came into sight, everybody else stood up and waited in front of the yellow line with their eyes on the train. I tried to listen to the train instead of looking so that I can understand more about what's going on in the blind man's mind. I could hear the train coming from far and I bet he could hear it better than I do, I turned my vision towards his direction and saw that he didn't move like the other people. A blind man is patient enough. As the train gets nearer, everybody looked like they couldn't wait to board the train and he stood up immediately after the brakes of the train made a squeaky sound. I saw everyone trying to board the train and figured he could use some help, so I held his left arm and guided him into the train without having him to bump onto anyone. I felt contented after doing this good deed. So I'm here sharing it with you people.

(Pictures in this post are taken by my handphone camera K800i)
Yoshinoya Chicken and Salmon Bowl

Once I arrived in Midvalley, I was so hungry so I thought of fast food because I really needed food fast. I didn't want to have any McD or KFC or Burger King, so I thought of Yoshinoya since I haven't tried it before. I ordered the Chicken and Salmon set and sadly to say I was a little disappointed because the Salmon is deep fried. I expected it to be grilled. The rice was not warm enough for me. The vegetable tasted quite bad. But I was very hungry so I walloped the whole thing.

Sony DSLR A100 Sony Center

Next,I went to Sony Customer Service Center at Northpoint Midvalley. Its a satellite buidling of Midvalley Megamall. I was there to send my Sony Alpha for repair. The lense failed me right before Dance2Nista. It couldn't focus and it sends out a loud mechanical sound like its jammed.

Designer Durians Jusco

After that, I dropped by Jusco in Midvalley to shop for some goods and spotted this RM50 durian... WTF? Apparently they are from famous trees...

My bloody work of art!

Blood Spiral

OMG! That's blood! Derek said I cut myself just to bring my passion for art to the next level.(He was actually half asleep when he said this)

No! I am not a freak! and I am not mad enough to cut myself to do some bloody painting.

It actually started like this. I wanted to open a can of Heinz English Baked Beans and I didn't have a can opener, hence I used a Chinese Kitchen Knife to open it. In the process, I accidentally cut my finger and I went to squeeze the blood out of my finger and I started dripping it in patterns onto the sink and I thought it was quite artistic. Suddenly I thought drawing something with my blood would be cool, so I asked my housemate Andrew to lend me his sketching pad.

LogicYuan's Blood Art

I just simply drew and the sudden thought of people using their blood to write in ancient chinese films struck me. So I wrote the chinese character "Blood" on the sketch pad.

Chinese Blood Caligraphy

You can still see the blood was still fresh when I took the picture.

LogicYuan's left index finger

Here is the finger that contributed to art.

I actually wanted to keep the blood paintings but my dad told me that the smell of blood attracts unwanted spirits so I asked Andrew to throw them away. Although the hard copy has already been sent to the waste dump, I still have these pictures to immortalise these wonderful pieces of art.
