Many of our leaders visiting world class universities and come back telling us the story, where as they have power, opportunities and probably providing fund to develop something like in top universities. Generation by generation we only learned from history. Why not just do it.
Same thing in Cambridge and Oxford, truly place to study.

Nearly 10 years already my direct involvement with MNS-Cocacola Water Vision Programme. We educate public especially through school children on water, how to save water, source of water and the most important is to keep clean water continue flowing for future generations. This is great challenge. We need support from policy maker, development planners, developers, public, school children, politician, and everybody in general because all need water for life.

Road kills still become a hot topic and attracting public concern. Wildlife conservation and protection become more interesting and everybody must play their roles. BUT for motorists no law under Department of Road Transport. We should introduce laws for those caused wildlife road kills. In the areas that identified as wildlife movement areas or near National Parks or forest reserve, more sign board to alert drivers to slow down and becareful of wildlife crossing.

comes to why whales beach themselves scientists haven’t been able to find a clear answer but have had many speculations and ideas as to why this may occur. Why whale come to beach near Pontian. Straits of Malacca place for whales? Narrow, busy, shallow straits may be not suitable for whales. We need to encourage young generation to study whale. Not many extreme field biology in Malaysia. Many are interested in laboratory work. This incident no detail information were gathered they just push to the sea so that the whale is free. Is this whale in group or individual? no data. probably fisherman and military can help if the have sophisticated equipment and the know about whales.

Twelves reasons why whales come to beach. Pollution is among the important reasons.

My work published in my blog was used for internet wildlife trading? Sometime all of our work need to be kept secret. BUT our leaders will say you are not doing anything good for the country. Especially our leaders will listen to what people say rather that what they analyse about our performance.

History showed that monkey can help human. Why not we study more about non-human primate. Gong Xi Gong Xi Gong Xi Fa Cai. Those who are born in monkey year are intelligent and smart but sometime they do not show their talent then they need guidance.

Chinese New Year is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. It is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Celebrations traditionally run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month. In 2016, the first day of Chinese New Year falls on Monday, February 8th.
Lunar New Year 2016
The New Year festival is centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honour deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, including Mainland ChinaHong Kong, MacauTaiwanSingapore, ThailandCambodiaIndonesiaMalaysiaMauritius, and the Philippines. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the lunar new year celebrations of its geographic neighbours.

Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese New Year vary widely. Often, the evening preceding Chinese New Year's Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red color paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of "good fortune" or "happiness", "wealth", and "longevity". Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.
Although the Chinese calendar traditionally does not use continuously numbered years, outside China its years are often numbered from the reign of the 3rd millennium BCE Yellow Emperor. But at least three different years numbered 1 are now used by various scholars, making the year beginning CE 2015 the "Chinese year" 4713, 4712, or 4652.

The idea of building Wildlife crossing in Malaysia is not new and already done in Malaysia. We need to study all potential areas where wildlife crossing the highways in order to avoid road kill.

viaduct is a bridge composed of several small spans for crossing a valley or a gorge. The term viaduct is derived from the Latin via for road and ducere, to lead. Theancient Romans did not use the term; it is a modern derivation from an analogy withaqueduct. Like the Roman aqueducts, many early viaducts comprised a series of arches of roughly equal length. Viaducts may span land or water or both.

Wildlife crossings are structures that allow animalsto cross human-made barriers safely. Wildlife crossings may include: underpass tunnelsviaducts, and overpasses (mainly for large or herd-type animals); amphibian tunnels; fish ladderstunnelsand culverts (for small mammals such as otters,hedgehogs, and badgers); green roofs (for butterflies and birds).
Wildlife crossings are a practice in habitat conservation, allowing connections or reconnections between habitats, combating habitat fragmentation. They also assist in avoiding collisions between vehicles and animals, which in addition to killing or injuring wildlife may cause injury to humans and property damage.
Similar structures can be used for domesticated animals, such as cattle creeps

Issues on wild life continues. We cannot just look at it OR read the stories. Need Actions. Ask MNS (Malaysian Nature Society) how to react.

Another challenge for those believers: Religion may become extinct in nine nations, study says/

The research team apply their nonlinear dynamics model, adjusting parameters for the relative social and utilitarian merits of membership of the "non-religious" category.
"For example in languages, there can be greater utility or status in speaking Spanish instead of [the dying language] Quechuan in Peru, and similarly there's some kind of status or utility in being a member of a religion or not."

Malaysia Boleh!!! YES! we can do it BUT we are not doing it OR we just don't want to do it!!!

French supermarkets banned from throwing away and spoiling unsold food: we waste our food in many hotels. parties, and during festivals. This Chinese new year may be we should start to save our food plan before eat and reply the invitation.

We need to have a sign board along the Highway to educate the drivers. Places where the wildlife are expected to cross wildlife sign should be put. Numbers of wildlife are decreasing especially tapir, tiger, elephant. civet, deer, etc. Need more sign board to alert the drivers. Some drivers are purposely hit the animals that cross the road.

An adult tiger hit by a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) at Km321.2 of the East Coast Expressway 2 (LPT2) in Kemaman succumbed to injuries early this morning.
The incident was believed to have occurred at about 1.00am as the tiger tried to cross the road before it was hit by the Kuala Terengganu-bound MPV from Kuala Lumpur.
State Public Order and Traffic chief Supt Kamaluddin Mohamad, who confirmed the incident, said the driver and three passengers in the vehicle were unhurt.

He also advised LPT2 road users to be cautious when driving along the highway especially at night, as it was common for wild animals to wander onto the road.
“Watch out for animals such as deer, tapir, wild boar as well as goats, cows and buffaloes which roam the area,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.
Meanwhile the tiger’s carcass was handed over to the Wildlife Department for further action.

Now ficus fruits become popular in Malaysia but a bit expensive. more research needed and more people should plant it.

Health benefits of figs

  • Fig fruit is low in calories. 100 g fresh fruits carry only 74 calories. However, they contain health benefiting soluble dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, and pigment anti-oxidants that contribute immensely towards optimum health and wellness.
  • Dried figs are an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. In fact, dried figs possess higher concentrations of energy, minerals and vitamins. 100 g dried figs provide 249 calories.
  • Fresh figs, especially black mission, are good in poly-phenolic flavonoid anti-oxidants such as carotenes, lutein, tannins, chlorogenic acid...etc. Their anti-oxidant value is comparable to that of apples at 3200 umol/100 g (Trolex equivalents).
  • Additionally, fresh figs contain adequate levels of some of the anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, E, and K. Altogether these phyto-chemical compounds in fig fruit help scavenge harmful oxygen derived free radicals from the human body and thereby protect us from cancers, diabetes, degenerative diseases and infections
  • .Image result for fig fruits
  • Furthermore, research studies suggest that chlorogenic acid in the figs help lower blood sugar levels and control blood-glucose levels in type-II diabetes mellitus (adult onset) condition.
  • Fresh, as well as dried figs contain good levels of B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates, and pantothenic acid. These vitamins function as co-factors for metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
  • Dried figs are an excellent sources of minerals like calcium, copper, potassium, manganese, iron, selenium and zinc. 100 g of dried figs contain 680 mg of potassium, 162 mg of calcium, and 2.03 mg of iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Copper required in the production of red blood cells. Iron is essential for red blood cell formation as well for cellular oxidation. (Source: USDA National Nutrient database).
