I was feeding my car at a petrol station yesterday afternoon when the attendants were calling someone next to me. That someone was......Zainal Abidin.

Luckily I have a WWF newsletter sitting in my car and I got his autograph!


Bumi yang tiada rimba
Seumpama hamba
Dia dicemar manusia
Yang jahil ketawa
Bumi yang tiada udara
Bagai tiada nyawa
Pasti hilang suatu hari
Tanpa disedari
Bumi… tanpa lautan
Akan kehausan
Pasti lambat laun hilang
Duniaku yang malang
Dewasa ini kita saling merayakan
Kejayaan yang akhirnya membinasakan
Apalah gunanya kematangan fikiran
Bila dijiwa kita masih lagi mudah dan mentah
Ku lihat hijau

Lyrics from Zainal Abidin said it all....

Looking at our world nowadays, my grief grows deeper for our future generations.
They will not be as fortunate as we are now in enjoying the beautiful world we live in.

They will wonder how sunrise, sunsets, rain, fields, rainforests, streams, rivers, seas, corals were like during earlier years.

What we have now will be a thing of the past for our poor future generations...
For them, burning acid rain…polluted choking air…polluted rivers and seas without life...

Daily, weekly, monthly, we come across endless reports on nature or climate which are never on the positive side.
Species upon species of flora and fauna vanishing for good.
Climate changing for the worse.
Europe, North America experiencing colder winters, devastating blizzards…
China experiencing terrible drought…
Australia having extreme heat waves in summers…destructing firestorms down south, floods up north…
In our own country, floods are worse than before…
Tropical countries hit by denggi epidemic…
Hurricanes and tropical storms will be worse year after year…
Surely this is not the end. More catastrophes are on their way…diseases we have never encountered before will rise…
Even economies created by ourselves are crumbling. If we can’t even take care of our own man made economies, what more to say nature.
We need to change! After what PKR and Obama have voiced out and hopefully will continue doing the promised changes, if any, it is our turn to change.

Change our mindset…for nature...for our world...for our children...

There is no second world. Where we stand on is the only one. Hence, it is our home.

This world is our home...

Ironman 70.3 in Putrajaya!


Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya and Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines announced

Published Tuesday, February 10, 2009

World Triathlon Corporation continues its expansion of the Ironman 70.3 Series. The two additions to the 2009 Ironman 70.3 Event Calendar are Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya and Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines. Further establishing its presence in Asia, the event series now includes 33 global races. Both events will serve as official qualifiers for the 2009 Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 taking place on November 14 in Clearwater, FL.

Regarded as the “Intelligent Garden City,” Putrajaya will play host to the inaugural event on July 26, 2009.

Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya will lead athletes on a scenic course in and around the new capital city, one that sits among lush landscaping. With a one-loop lake swim, a flat bike course and a picturesque run, participants will experience many of the area’s historical attractions.
The inaugural Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines on August 23, 2009 will offer athletes a unique racing opportunity. The swim course will utilize two separate lakes, the bike course will provide a backdrop of rice paddies and foliage while athletes will encounter rolling hills and more local scenery during the run. Event headquarters will be family-friendly and located at the Camarines Sur Water Park Complex (CWC). With international wakeboarding facilities and a skate park, participants can enjoy the park facilities in addition to others within Naga and its nearby islands.
“After years of steady growth, the sport of triathlon is finally taking significant shape in Asia. While the region has hosted Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events in the past, these events further solidify Ironman’s presence and allow new triathletes more accessibility to the Ironman Experience. We look forward to further development in 2010 and beyond,” said Event Director for Asia, Murphy Reinschreiber.
Both events will consist of a 1.2 mile/1.9 km swim, a 56 mile/90 km bike and a 13.1 mile/21.1 km run. At each race, there will be 25 Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 slots in addition to a professional prize purse of $25,000.
