........The Future is RIGGED........

Every year of the year of the rabbit, a wizened old monk appears from a cave at somewhere in Gunung Serapi near Kuching Sarawak. No one knows his age and why he only appears during the year of the rabbit.
Using a crystal and a water bowl he gives a series of predictions mostly accurate.

In the last year of the rabbit in 1999, these are some of his predictions:

1.The son of an ex-leader of a great nation will die in an aircrash.....(n.b. John F Kennedy Jr , his wife and sister-in-law dies in an aircrash)

2. There will be a devastating earthquake off the Mediterranean Sea.... (n.b 7.4 Richter scale earthquake kills 17,000 in Turkey)

3. Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim found guilty and sentenced to jail....(n.b. He was found guilty of corruption and sentenced to six years in jail)

Here are some of his predictions for THIS Rabbit year:

1.The leader of a middle-east nation will fall due to the might of the people.

2. In a shock move; Datuk Seri Anwar quits politics as he is offered a job at Cadbury Chocolates in the UK. He will head their Fudge-Packing division.

3. K.Rajagobal appointed as assistant coach of Liverpool and Safee Sali is drafted into the team making a first for Malaysia. The new Andy Caroll-Safee Sali combination is hailed as the best since Keegan-Toshack.

4. All three teams with beginning with the letter 'W" are relegated this season from the EPL.

And with that , the monk who is known GrandMaster Fu Lo Vit by the locals disappeared again and many await his next appearance and prediction in the next year of the rabbit.

Much has been said and written about The Malaysian Pavillion, some good... some bad.
Controversies on the cost, the printing of leaflets with tons of spelling mistakes, leaks etc.
Here is a reply from the Ministry of Tourism on SOME of the faults. Click this.

So this is my personal take on it.
The expo had a theme "Better City, Better Life" and while other Pavillions (those that I visited) stuck with the theme , we were more interested in selling stuff like Ipoh White Coffee, Bonia etc...

Malaysia has huge links with China that others in the region dont, From Admiral Cheng Ho to the Sultanate of Malacca to the Chinese immigrants that came to work in the tin mines.
We could also have featured prominent Chinese immigrants that made good here like Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong but nooooo, we were more interested in selling over-priced art from Balai Seni Lukis Negara with artists no one overseas have heard of.

Other Pavillions tried hard to showcase their links with China, e.g. Turkey's ancient calendar and their similarities with the Chinese one, UAE had teh Sultan's grandughter giving a welcome speech on multimedia screens in fluent Mandarin.
Malaysia by far has more links with China but this was not showcased in the best possible way in my humble opinion.

According to a Malaysian who works in Shanghai, there was a standing joke among the Indonesians that they had 2 Pavillions there as the Malaysian one with the Minangkabau style roof originated from Indonesia.

"The Malaysian Pavillion."

"The Twin Towers inside....the antennae was not at the top of the buildings so I suppose it was not according to scale."

"While others had high impact-multimedia, we had these..er...strange looking dolls."

"Poor showcase of our F1 Sepang circuit..we could at least have had a F1 simulator and a multimedia presentation of the history and race of the track."

"While others had high impact-multimedia, we had posters."

"At night.."
