Banning anime in Malaysia?

In an article procatively titled 'Filem animasi Jepun bahaya' (Japanese animated films are dangerous) in Kosmo, and another lesser procatively titled 'Animasi Jepun Paling Bahaya Untuk Tontonan Kanak-Kanak ' (Japan animation deemed dangerous for children viewing) in mStar, it appears that anime has yet again came under fire (remember that one article in a certain tabloid associating anime with pornography?)

An anime enthusiast would have complained that anime is getting the same treatment like it did when the article in question came out way back, but think about it:

The Star (13/9/10)

I guess I came back here rather too soon.

Anyway, I thought that these are too good to pass up, and so would take a minute or two to put it up here:

Mah blogger homie is on the newspaper!

How're you doing on this fine Raya day, everyone? Are you still visiting houses, collecting your duit raya, stuffing your stomach, and meeting obnoxious and annoying relatives?

Or, are you now sitting in front of your PC, browsing through the net, just like a certain bored blogger?

Hidden Illuminati symbols can be found in the design and shape of both delicacies, at least according to a young Malay blogger, Lufkin. The checkerboard folds of ketupat wrapping, and scroll-like shape of the lemang have sinister meanings, he said in his blog post.

Wow, this Lufkin must be one crazy conspiracy theorist, right?

And just as with the said entry, my response to this whole situation is:

Let the facepalming commence!

Death on the road

No, this has nothing to do with the album by Iron Maiden. And no, it's not as if there's any gory content here or anything.

So like any other good university student, I brought a bus ticket for a trip yesterday (Saturday), since I don't want to get myself in a traffic jam, when all the students are going back after classes are done on Friday.

But anyway, I'm not going to talk about the bus services, or about the current hoo-ha on some of the 'death trap' hotspots during the Raya season.

Allow me to show you a few road ads (not signs, see) that I encountered during the trip back home, which are ominous, meh, and WTF (not necessarily in that order):
