STOP PRESS!!


Perdana Menteri China, Li Keqiang akan melawat Melaka pada 22 November 2015.

"Kehadiran Li Keqiang (PM China) adalah mercu tanda hubungan dua hala yang sudah lama terjalin antara Melaka dan Negara China."



Melaka CM: "Belt and Road" initiative to help revive Malacca.
China's "Belt and Road" initiative is expected to help revive the Malaysian state of Malacca, a major trade port in the history of the country that once attracted merchants from China and India, the chief minister of the state has said.
"I hope the 'Belt and Road' initiative would bring back the prosperity Malacca used to enjoy," Idris Haron, the chief minister, told Xinhua on Wednesday, two days before leaders of Southeast Asian countries and the world's major economies meet here for the 27th ASEAN Summit and Related Summits.
The chief minister said he sees from the "Belt and Road" initiative, proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping, the desire of the Chinese "to the spirit to prosper the neighbors."
Malacca, located in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula and next to the Straits of Malacca, played a critical role in sea transportation historically and geographically, he said.
It is also well known by most Chinese mainly for the legend of Zheng He, a great navigator and diplomat of China's Ming Dynasty who commanded expeditionary voyages to Southeast Asia, South Asia, Western Asia and East Africa from 1405 to 1433.
The influx of an increasing number of Chinese tourists has helped the development in the state, and the chief minister also pinned hope for the faster development on the cooperation with China's Guangdong province.
Idris Haron said his state and Guangdong province signed a memorandum of understanding to enhance friendly and cooperative relations in September, which paves the way for bilateral cooperation in land reclamation, agriculture, knowledge-sharing in trade and investment and tourism, among others.
"We have a lot of things we can exchange, especially in culture and tourism," Idris Haron said, adding that the cooperation between Malacca and Guangdong under the "Belt and Road" initiative is promising because "Malacca people are as productive as our friends in Guangdong."

How about a little Shame?

In 2015, how about a little Shame?


The other day I was asked what one single thing could do the most to save our world and lives we live in nowadays. What one idea or tool might help us create a more just society? 


My answer was "shame."

Shame isn't always a wasted or negative emotion. On the contrary, it can perform an important and socially useful function. Shame enforces our moral values even when legal and political institutions are too broken or corrupt to do so. Our society must learn to develop a "moral economics," and morality should often be enforced through shame by society.

We live in a society where it's no longer considered shameful for husbands and wife's to play around.
 
For sons & daughters to cheat and lie to parents, for corporate and companies to cheat and lie to their workers; for government to enrich only their own.

The world is awash with laundered dirty money through drugs, crime and we the people close our eyes to the negative aspects of our society's members and sometimes we ourselves revel with them, all in the name of instant gratification and enjoyment; of course under cover of anonymity.

Our middle class kind of cynicism is so accepted, so ingrained in fact, that even the more liberal amongst us find it less tolerating more frightening. We live in a society where it's not shameful to let cheats and liars go unpunished while asking everyone else to pay the cost of their illegal enrichment. 

Nowadays, we allow ourselves, our politicians, & our esteemed leaders not to be ashamed of themselves when confronted with their faults and crimes! It is always some else's worry.

Incredible.

Perhaps no single change to our culture could do more to improve our lives than the rediscovery of the shame we used to attach to vile, greedy, selfish, and corrupt behavior amongst the men and women of today. This trait starts from us, our families to our immediate surroundings

Consider how far we've fallen:

Not long ago a person would have been ashamed to appear in public if they had shattered the trust and kind intentions of their loved ones, family and friends by either cheating innocent people, doing morally corruptible activities or plain and simple being caught doing wrong in the eyes of society.

Not long ago a politician who accepted and was sucked into the corrupting power of money and control immediately paid a steep price. 

Not long ago leaders, men and women of large were ashamed to openly advocate the making of money and power to be supreme to ethics, loyalty and kindness. Not so nowadays, and in fact the opposite holds true to us and our leaders today.

Now it is almost glamorous to be caught with their hands in the pie. Newspaper and magazines pay the shameless millions to be the first to report on their infidelities and crimes!

We the consumers expect all the titillating stories without any moral guidance to be read with our morning coffee to tsk , tsk, over. 

In 2015, it's time for shame to make a comeback.

Tanqueray Malacca Gin

Did You KNOW?

Tanqueray Malacca is a Sweet Treat When Its Around: Tanqueray London Dry Gin and Tanqueray Malacca Gin: Sweet Treats


Tanqueray Malacca is a Sweet Treat When Its Around:

Tanqueray was ahead of the curve of the new gin movement.
 In 1997, they released what was perhaps the most revolutionary gin to come out of a major English distillery to date. Malacca, based on a recipe by Charles Tanqueray from the grand old year 1839, was a revelation to many in the burgeoning cocktail scene.

A softer, citrus-forward gin, uniquely suited for mixing in the new wave of drinks created by barmen across the country, Malacca instantly developed cult status. Unfortunately for its newfound following, Malacca was taken off shelves in 2001.

Relaunched in early 2013, Tanqueray Malacca is a sweeter gin with less juniper emphasis and more citrus than the classic style. Originally introduced in the late 1990s, Malacca was discontinued after a short lifespan but has been resurrected after gradually assuming cult status among cocktail revivalist bartenders as a good substitute for the original Old Tom styles of gin.

Many years later, the whispers you've heard are true: Malacca is back on the shelves, albeit in limited quantities. 100,000 bottles of the sauce were released.

SO WHAT DOES MALACCA GIN TASTE LIKE?
According to some, sampling the newly-reissued gin neat, grapefruit takes the lead, wrapped in a distinctly floral scent. The gin is soft and round, with prominent cinnamon and bubblegum flavors. It finishes clean and easy, almost leaving you wondering if you were drinking booze or rosewater.
