Some things do not make sense to me. Why did they select the finalists for the cosmonaut project with the 3.5KM run? I thought one needs lots of brain power, mental strength, experiences and techie stuffs like that in order to be an astronaut? Certainly the physical strength can be built when the candidates have gone through some medical tests and mental tests? The way I look the selection, it is like sending the fastest runner to space. For what? To run away from aliens?
Do you know that we have one blogger amongst us who are one of the finalist but…….?
About 2 weeks ago, I received another notification that the first fitness test would be a 3.5km run in 20 minutes (earlier story can be found here). My first thought was “piece of cake, kacang only…” and then suddenly, I got to my sense and started counting “Oh o…I will be 33 weeks pregnant on the 3rd Sept. 2005”.
Now, back home here in Penang, let me show you a photo of the moongate. I wrote something about this issue called,
I took this photo last week. Notice the cemented portion? They torn the wall down and now they are putting up again. A sheer waste of money and not to mention the irreplaceable original designs.
And I wonder, are Penang lacking of Chinese men? Are we having a shortage of better looking ones? One whose lips aren’t too thick or specs aren’t too nerdy?
It is sickening. I had written about
Penang – When the big boys play games
and it is happening again. Pointing fingers. It’s in the paper today (I can’t find the online version). The title says “Penang not told about toll plan.”
As far as I see it, running a home, company, state, country or nation, won’t be as messy if we get our priority right. And that priority is to serve the people and put our interests last.
