Berkenaan #Yorais

(Don’t worry english readers, there’s still translation below :p )

Sudah hampir seminggu dari tarikh 19 Januari, tarikh keramat oleh para pengguna twitter di Malaysia. Pada tarikh tersebut, boleh dikatakan ramai pengguna tegar twitter di Malaysia bersatu padu bagaikan menurut kata keramat 1Malaysia, berganding bahu untuk menyumbangkan suara, maaf, twit masing-masing yang berkaitan #yorais sehingga ianya menjadi salah satu topik terhangat didunia.

Apa itu #yorais?

Pada 16 Januari 2010, Menteri Informasi, Komunikasi & Kebudayaan,  Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim telah menasihati rakyat Malaysia, TERUTAMANYA MUSLIM, supaya tidak terlalu ‘ketagih/mendalami’ terhadap kegunaan internet khususnya Facebook & Twitter. Berita lanjut, click sahaja butang spoiler dibawah.

SEREMBAN: Malaysians, especially Muslims, must avoid being totally immersed in the internet culture, especially Facebook and Twitter, said Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.

He added that facilities like internet could not be accepted wholly because it was a form of business introduced by the West and “Malaysians were just users.”

“We are not saying that they cannot use Facebook or Twitter but when using such facilities they must upkeep the values taught by Islam, Buddhism or Christianity to maintain our culture,” he told reporters after opening a Seminar on the 1Malaysia concept here on Saturday.

He added that Malaysians who used internet services on social networking sites should be careful with what they see and hear.

“We must be strong in our believes and culture because the identity and image of our country depends on us.

“They are just selling Facebook, Twitter, L-Band and various other services, even through space, as a product but we do not do such business. We accept all this in a state of cultural shock,” he said.

He chided some Malaysians who belittled those who were no savvy of the Facebook and Twitter culture.

“We should not be quick to condemn or look down on those who do not use Facebook. Newspapers are still relevant, so is Facebook, but do not be carried away with everything and disregard the old system,” he said.

Rais also praised the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) for its success in tracking down a student from the National Arts Culture and Heritage Academy for posting a public safety threatening comment on Facebook about the recent spate of attacks on churches while discussing the ongoing “Allah” controversy on the popular social networking website.

“Syabas to the commission for its action in nailing those who used Facebook, Twitter and SMS for the wrong reasons.

“As a former analyst of the law in the country, I wish to advise the people that they cannot escape from the law for their actions,” he said.

Rais said the Information Department had also found that 62% of Malaysians understood the 1Malaysia concept.

He added that the Government would initiate more programmes featuring the 1Malaysia concept, especially for students. – BERNAMA

Saya dapat rasakan yang mana Dr Rais Yatim sebenarnya mahu memberikan komentar yang berbentuk pencegahan diatas kejadian pelajar Aswara yang telah mengeluarkan kenyataan yang berbentuk ugutan di Facebook. Namun begitu, saya tidak rasa maklumat sebenar yang ingin disampaikannya dapat dicerna dengan tepat oleh para Netizens. Berikut adalah penjelasan saya tapi sebelum itu teliti ayat2 berikut.

My article in Flash/Flex Developer Magazine

My article being published in international magazine 😀

Imej 2scale600

Didn’t know if my english utterly crap what not, but I made it in time. Flash & Flex Developer Magazine is a community based on Poland, but the magazine being read and distributed worldwide. For this edition they wanted to cover about Mobile Devices and emailed Flavert asking to share some of the developments. Since some of them deal with copyright issue, (say.. TGV Mobile Apps) Al-Quran For PSP is much safer so I wrote about my development of Al-Quran for PSP. Well, download the magazine here.

And know what, receiving some compliments for international level does makes me happy. Hope this inspires Muslim to be progressive, more and more in Multimedia :)

Just in case you didn’t know, my other startup, Weddingkami, is having it’s Card Of The Month Promo (january). You should go and see it, surprise awaits for clickers.

If my girl/wife can sing

I want her to sing this song, and sing it like this singer,

That’s only ‘if’ la. But it does make me wonder coz usually, japanese are much cuter. But this Canadian singer rocks. Maybe because of the song itself. So lively, so harmony.

Trivia : in only 15-30 seconds, I can decide whether the song worthy in my playlist or not. And I’ve played this song for about 70% time of listening within these 2 weeks o_O

The wings are wide, the wings are wide.
