This camera is made by a company that make disposable still camera and disposable video camera. Yes… I didn’t get my fact wrong, there are actually disposable video cameras in this world. But they have moved a step higher… Why make a disposable video camera when you can reuse it? So now they add a USB connecter that flip directly out from the little video camera and with the provided software, you can directly upload your video shots to your YouTube account. For many web cam whores, it is like an extension of their web cams. Now they can bring the Flip Video to shoot their stuff anywhere they like (no more right in front of their computers at home), go back home plug it in to your USB port that you usually use for your web cam and walla! It’s on YouTube.

Satu Lagi Projek Kerajaan Barisan Nasional

Last Friday, the roof of Sekolah Menengah Wakaf Tapai school hall in Marang, Terengganu, collapsed. Lucky that it didn’t happen during school assembly.

The 2million Ringgit roof was reported being used without CF since 2005. Bernama say one hor. The Education Ministry fler said: “We were issued a temporary CF while waiting for the CF to enable the school to be used because of pressing needs at the time.”

Ok. My questions:

1. A temporary CF will have magical power to make a building safe?

2. It takes more than 2 years to get a CF? What happened to those cepat, tepat, mesra, hebat, etc… slogans?

The school had also been instructed to stop using its industrial workshop building because its roof also appeared to have structural problems. Whoa… Does that mean the sequal is coming really soon?

The official revealed that their investigations show that there were soil movements where the school was built, but the fler said this did not affect the overall safety of the four building structures of the school. Erm… This statement sounded a bit like shooting on his own foot though.

Anyway, I was well assured that the school kids will be safe because the official said “ALL NECESSARY STEPS would be taken to ensure safety would be paramount at the school.”. Hello…… what are the necessary steps please? Who issued the TEMPORARY CF in the first place?

At least this time, someone from the government is saying something that make some sense… State Education, Higher Education, Science and Technology and Human Resources Committee chairman Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman asked the ministry to inspect all school halls with the same design in the state to ensure safety of students and teachers in the schools concerned. But who is monitoring the inspections?
