In case you missed it. Dazzling scenes and expert photography.

Supermoon – when the moon is closest to Earth, it appears 30% bigger and 15% brighter.

Blue moon – when the full moon appears for the second time in a month. Happens once in two and a half years.

Blood moon – during a total lunar eclipse, the red light from the sun is reflected on the moon.

I notice Anil is playing selective on comments. I need not specify further.
Maybe, NK is bearing down on him!
Remember “they feel the heat”? Anil?

Malaysia is seeing red! Yesterday, I went to Komtar 1st Flr to buy my 3rd Teva Sandals, which is the only sandal brand that can truly cope with rain or shine & outdoor adventure (recent 2 flooding proved Teva tough & versatile wearing). I have been wearing Teva for 4+ years. The last time I bought a Terra Fi 4, it costed Rm269. Now, I have to make do with a lighter + cheaper Terra Fi Lite @Rm229. The retailer told me this is the last batch of Teva before the new batch coming which will be priced @ Rm400-500… Read more »

Mydin is telling us that KR1M is not sustainable, but BN seems to suggest otherwise. So much for fake news.

The rising price of goods have impacted sales at all hypermarkets, which accounted for 50% of all groceries sold in Malaysia. In the first quarter of 2017, overall retail sales declined by 1.2% but hypermarket sales went down by 4.8%.

People are not spending like before but Niao Kong insists on spending big time on sea tunnel!
Does it hurt your NK worshipping ego?

4W bunian adventurer wear Teva RM229 for a pair of sandals so life is not that bad after all the groaning?

Now got BR1M RM400 and Penang Senior pay out RM130, but I think I better opt for local Bata RM22.90 and save the rest to buy food to sustain daily life.

A person who can afford Teva definitely not qualify for RM72.5K home, so be kind to leave them for those in needs. THANKS.

Don’t spin the untruth!
I got BR1M or Pg senior pay out?
You must be the most amateurist spinning joker in anilnetto.com!!!
Pls lah, check with me b4 you open your ….!

Want to learn about budgeting to live a satisfying lifestyle without breaking the bank account?
Teva = 2+ yrs of wear*
Bata = 0.5 yr of wear*
For adventure outdoor, daily casual wear, @ work. Bata can qualify??? Pls check your mind!

Another spinster. You buy counterfeit Bata. People get more than 1 year of wear and tear . Proof is going to school every new term. School boys are more active than ah pek with running and jumping. Ah pek is only good in grumbling and telling others off.

Housing issue is a social issue unless one is indifferent to the suffering of others like you.
So, Anil cannot bring out housing issue so others with good intention (but can inevitably affect reputation of Niao Kong + CAT Team) can comment b’cos he (I assume) doesn’t qualify for BR1M???
I also assume you are either friends of greedy developers or worshipper of CAT’s misplace housing policies.
So, why are you here commenting if you don’t qualify for BR1M???

My English so bad that you interpret that I did not receive BR1M?
Housing an issue I just said leave affordable housings to those poor souls out there.
Wish all happy lunar New year. Be gracefully positive and the Lord can grant us fulfilment.

Can be so caustic sacarstic, but the Lord is not reading my intention!
Can also advice: “Be graceful”
Oh My Lord! You created … for a less caustic purpose!

Ringgit has low value eroding your purchasing power, unlike SingDollar. Why then you still splurge on expensive sandals?

Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar allowed a large group of Chinese to pray today (立春 lìchūn) for peace and prosperity at the gates of Istana Bukit Serene in conjunction with the coming Chinese New Year celebration. A post on Sultan Ibrahim’s official Facebook page Sunday (Feb 4) showed photos of over 2,000 people gathered at the entrance of Istana Bukit Serene along Jalan Danga Bay near the arch on which a replica of the Johor Ruler’s Crown is placed. The group took off their footwear and stood barefooted on the grass patch surrounding the crown arch to… Read more »

This well-beloved Johor Sultan truly belongs to the P.Ramlee Era of multi-racial co-existence, tolerance & Bangsa (not kaum) Malaysia.
Where else to find the same leader in the whole of Nusantara Malaya???
Yes, the Crown Prince of Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ).

Is your church annoyed by Ku Nan’s allegation of fake news to discredit BN on Sunday Sermon?

Malaysians have continued to disparage Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor for saying that Christians are using churches to spread lies against the government, despite his clarification that he was misquoted.

The Federal Territories minister yesterday morning had said the church should be a place to “disseminate God’s will” and not for Christian leaders to share their personal grouses or “fake news”.

Blue moon signifies Green PAS moon collaborating with Blue BN? Once in a blue moon but could happen in GE14?
