I've received this e-mail from a friend and after reading and having a good laugh, decided to post it here in my blog.

Please remember that this is only a joke and not meant to demean anybody.


Raman: Narain, I've been attending night classes for 5 months now and I have an exam next week.

Narayan: oh!

Raman: For example, do you know who is Alexander Graham Bell?

Narayan: No

Raman: He's the inventor of the phone in 1876; if you take night courses you would know this.

The next day, the same discussion took place:

Raman: Do you know who Alexander Dumas is?

Narayan: No

Raman: He's the author of "The 3 Musketeers", if you take night courses, you would know this.

The next day, once again:

Raman: And do you know who Jean Jacques Rousseau is?

Narayan: No

Raman: He's the author of "Confessions", if you take night courses, you would know this.

This time, Narayan got irritated and asked
Narayan: And you, do you know who is Balakrishnan Kuppuswamy?

Raman: No

Narayan: He's the guy sleeping with your wife!! If you stop night courses, you would know.

Tanjung Simpang Mengayau @ Tip Of Borneo.

What a terrible week that we all had. Some of the events that I have witnessed really made me wonder whether there is still justice, ethics, patriotism etc. left in this world.

Well enough about politics for the time being. I was determined that whatever happened or will happen will not dampen my weekend so off I go to Kudat for some unfinished business plus some sightseeing of course.I had always wanted to visit the Tip Of Borneo or locally known as Tanjung Simpang Mengayau.

I left Kota Kinabalu at 10.00 am and reached there at 12.40 pm. I was quite pleased to finally reached and see the northernmost of Sabah or Borneo Island itself with my own eyes. I had a nice view of the South China Sea and it was quite windy when I reached there.

No need to worry about food as there a canteen nearby and also a chalet for those who wished to stay overnight. For security, there is a Police Station situated not far away from the canteen.

As I was alone, I did not stay long and after about fourty minutes I left but determined to bring along my family with me on my next trip here.
