A Back-Breaking, Neck-Aching Process

I’m pretty sure everyone would have heard of the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic by now. Many countries have initiated a lockdown and people are instructed to stay at home unless there is an emergency. It took Malaysia a long time before initiating the lockdown status, not before our total number of cases went into the…

Xiaomi Unveils the New Mi 9T at Equatorial Plaza, Kuala Lumpur

Ever heard of the phrase, “Do one thing every day that scares you?” What about this? “Do something every day that is hard until it’s not?” This justifies and explains my day today. Usually, it is Mr Geeker who attends new phone launches and other miscellaneous media events but today, I stood chest out and…

Readers of the World, Unite!

Oh, for the love of books, this is (by far) the largest library in the world! I have not been to the library before but judging by the photos of it published online, it has to the largest in the world. This is definitely a bookworm’s paradise! A grand location where readers all over the world…

Have You Caught ‘Em All Yet?

I’m pretty sure by now you have all heard about the current mobile phone phenomenon, Pokemon Go. It was recently released in Malaysia and when it went live on the first day, everyone went nuts for it. Once upon a time when our parents fought hard to keep mobile phones away from the dinner table,…

An Employment Update.

To all my beloved readers, I have an update for you. It has been a wonderful eight (8) months where I was able to publish one post per day (two, when I’m feeling inspired) for your reading entertainment. It was great to receive comments from you, and having you guys check in to see what’s…

British Superstars Dead at 69.

When I finally heard the news… I thought, what are the odds? Two of the greatest superstars dead at 69 years old, both from cancer. David Bowie succumbed to liver cancer at 69 years old. Alan Rickman succumbed to cancer, also at 69 years old. David Bowie, as Ziggy Stardust: The Man and the Musician….

Selangor Gives Back.

I rarely ever publish blog posts about my own country, for safety reasons. Also, for political and religious reasons where I know I can get into trouble for mentioning it online. So I normally avoid talking about Malaysia unless it’s about food and holiday destinations. Today, however, I feel indebted to publish a post on…

Sympathies for San Bernardino.

Overheard on the radio this morning while driving to work: Another mass shooting has occurred in San Bernardino, California, where three armed suspects had stormed a centre for people with developmental disabilities, where 14 people were killed and 17 others were wounded. Two suspects were shot dead, while another third was on the run. I…

EPL 2015: Norwich City vs Arsenal.

BARCLAY’S PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH UPDATE: ARSENAL‘s midfield maestro Mesut Ozil scored the only goal in the Gunners’ 1-1 draw against Norwich City on early Monday morning, 12:30am Malaysian time. The two clubs share the spoils of the match as Arsenal failed to perform after a string of injuries left their key players mostly on the…

Solidarity in Football

In 1914, a truce was unofficially called out by both the German and British soldiers on Christmas Day. Thus, the Armistice Day football match took place at Dale Barracks between German soldiers and Royal Welsh fusiliers. Click here for more information on this historical day. There was a show of solidarity in sports, especially football…

#PRAYFORPARIS

I woke up this morning to some really terrible news. That France had been on the receiving end of several deadly attacks. Was it the work of terrorists? I have yet to find out. So far I’ve read, 43 were killed with dozens injured and the French police are in the midst of their investigation…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s full-time match results of 2-1 over Crystal Palace imitates a similar situation back in February 2015, when the same 2-1 results catapulted them to third place in last season’s Premier League match. The goalscorer was the same, one and only, Olivier Giroud. In February 2015, Santi Cazorla was the second goalscorer. This time around,…

EPL 2015: First Match Flop.

I am honestly displeased and disappointed when the full-time whistle was blown and the score remained at 2-0 in the favour of West Ham United. I don’t hate West Ham for defeating Arsenal. They played well, and they played with such fervour and ferociousness that they had every right and reason to win. Arsenal, on…

A Hot and Spicy Affair

Copa American 2015: Chile vs. Argentina It was definitely a Chilean affair. Chile held on for dear life throughout the entire competition right until the final match against Argentina. They were probably the least expected country to win the cup, especially since Argentina had always been favourites to lift the trophy. But Chile “made history…
