ILKAP

ILKAP obviously stands for something.

It stands for Institut Latihan Kehakiman dan Perundangan.

And that was where I had my kursus last week.

And that’s about where you’ll come in asking me this …..

“What the hell are you doing learning about our country’s judiciary system and law?”

AhakZZ…..

You see …… in the enforcement, other than being kanasai pharmacists, we’re also kanasai lawyers.

When we go on raids, not only do we bust their asses and confiscate all their illegal items…

….. we then proceed to make them remember it by hauling them to court and charging their asses off.

We look at it as just another way of making friends and spreading the love.

Anyway ….

I found the experience over at the ILKAP a really wholesome one.

Cause for one the facilities were pretty good…

And the hostel rooms were pretty well furnished

But the food …

….as with all government sponsored kursuses, we had 6 absolutely delicious meals a day….

Like this here …… does this dish make your mouth water or what ?

…… Looks like dried chilli that your mum left in the larder 6 months ago and forgot about……

Food aside, the course entailed lectures and tutorials conducted by actual lawyers. So we had to learn up Acts like the Penal Code, Evidence Act and the like ….

And at the end of it all we had a mock trial where we were pitted against a real lawyer and made to present our case in front of a real judge.

So in other words a bunch of bumbling kanasai pharmacists with near zero knowledge of court proceedings and court questioning VS a seasoned 20+ years experienced lawyer ….. under the watchful and skeptical eye of a High Court Judge.

Sounds fair to me.

We didn’t win the case of course. But I must say the experience was really something. We learnt how to question witnesses effectively.

As for me ……. I also learnt how to be a witness.

Cause since it was a mock trial, we all had roles to play.

And mine was that of the sad and pathetic investigation officer of the case ….

I think I answered quite kanasai ly ….

And I also think that’s probably why we lost the case.

Ahhh ….. but there’s something I really do have to point out …. something that baffled the hell out of all of us participants …

See the stairs there ? 

ilkap2.jpg

Wonder what the sign says ? 

ilkap1.jpg

Hmmm ……

So we have a flight of stairs that we’re not allowed to use.

They should’ve told us to bring our own ladders then ….. Kanasai~!

But I think the highlight of the kursus was this ….. 

ilkap3.jpg

This ain’t no ordinary shower man. 

ilkap4.jpg

It’s a singing shower~! See the musical note next to the second button?

Now if you get bored while showering, all you have to do is press that button and there’s music in the toilet~!

WohooOO~!

I actually tried it only once. Cause when the shower started singing, I could actually hear my room mate laughing his head off out in the room.

Of course after awhile it got really annoying so I switched it off ….

 ……. my room mate’s laughter I mean …..

Kanasai~!

Apologies …..

To Rufus, J2kfm, Darkstarr …..

My deepest apologies to you guys ….

For I’ve been getting loads of spam comments lately. Like in hundreds.

So this morning I did something I thought was clever. I started deleting all of those spam comments.

And  because the number ran into hundreds I deleted them in bulk

And the thing is that I thought those spam comments awaiting moderation were separate from the actual ones that were already there.

So I accidentally deleted a few of your previous comments in previous posts.

The thing is that each and every comment in every post is important to me.

These comments, coupled with the feedback in my chatterbox and the mere fact that you readers actually take the time to visit my blog is what drives me and keeps me going …..

So once again my deepest apologies ….

I’m sorry

My ILKAP Experience …. not really.

See here. Everyone hates witness stands. 

saksi1.jpg

If you’ve ever been to court and had to testify in a trial, you’d agree with me that being in a witness stand numbs the brains.

You know you’re not doing anything wrong yet you feel that your every word could mean the difference between a man put behind the slammer or him walking away free.

 But you want to know what’s worse than a mere witness stand?

A kanasai pharmacist in the witness stand~!

Holy cow.

That’s what I was doing during my ILKAP kursus this whole week.

Testifying against good people and framing innocent guys.

More on my ILKAP experience soon.

The time nowis 1.30am, finished my kursus in the evening, rushed over to Sunway Lagoon for sound check, and tomorrow’s the Roxy Summer Splash 2008 gig ….

I’m totally exhausted ….. ZzZzzZzzZzZzzzzzz

Roxy Summer Splash 2008

Band Related, Somewhat Serious Issues, Thoughts to Ponderon June 1st, 20086 Comments

A question I ask of you …..

What has Seventeen Magazine and Inverted Coma got to do with each other?

No, Inverted Coma’s not a band of perverts who oogle at seventeen year olds~!

At least I think we’re not.

No ….. what’s really happening here is that Inverted Coma will be given a 2 page feature in the August 2008 issue of Seventeen Magazine.

I know, I know, that still doesn’t explain the connection.

Well, Inverted Coma will be performing at the Roxy Summer Splash at the Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach on the 7th of June 2008 which is co-organized by Seventeen Magazine.

And since we’re one of the many bands taking the stage on that day, a 2 page article will be written on us.

The other day before we went into the studio for jamming, a nice gal called Charlotte came in and did an interview with us.

 She asked us loads of questions about the band.

So us being the professional musicians we are, we did what was right …..

….. we lied through our teeth and exaggerated on just about everything.

But on a more serious note, a whole lot of things were asked and I do believe that if our band were to be summed up on 2 pages, it would be these 2 pages due to appear in August in Seventeen Magazine.

Well ……. at least we hope Charlotte keeps to her word and filters out all the nonsense and mindless jokes we made throughout the interview.

So there ……. if you happen to be a subscriber of Reader’s Digest or National Geographic …..

….. I say enough with all that junk already. Time to start reading Seventeen Magazine. Especially the upcoming August issue.

And of course not forgetting this upcoming gig …..

  • Roxy Summer Splash 2008
  • Sunway Lagoon, Surf Beach
  • 7th June 2008 (Saturday)
  • 1pm – 8pm
  • Bands performing : Inverted Coma, Pop Shuvit, Frequency Cannon and loads more

So if you’re free, do come on over.

See you guys there ~!

What the Hell?

Like ……. I don’t mean to bring up anything sensitive ….

But my dad had this encounter sometime back that I think is worthy of a mention.

Some missionaries came over to my house back in KL and knocked on the door when my dad was alone.

So they asked my dad about his religion. He said outright …. We’re Buddhists.

You know what they said?

“Mr, do you know that all your relatives who’ve passed away are in Hell?”

Hmmm …… Bravo. That oughta get them loads of friends and followers.

I mean ….. I believe everyone is entitled to be kanasai once in a while….. but not that kanasailar …..

So they went on to say this …

“But for you Mr, it’s not too late. If you join our cause, you will be spared their fate. Come join us now”

And to this my dad replied ….

“If that’s the case then I think I’d rather join my relatives in Hell”

They never came back.

 Kudos to you dad~! That was so totally Un-Kanasai
