Hazards Of Abstract Art

Everything we see in life is mere illusions. If we are strong minded, we can control all the situations and not allow the situations to control us. I always view the earth as the stage with all actors like you and me, acting in plays of daily life. We are actually using our karma & merits to trade with each other in all aspects like father & son OR bosses & employees OR friends & foes.

I have been observing our surroundings and happiness is actually all around us. We can be happy with nature's wonders and life's beauties too. Here I am posting 3 photos below that look like Art to my eyes. They too, can could be a nuisance, dangers or hazards to you, depending on how you perceive them.





I noticed that in the entire neighbourhood of my home and workplace, the streets are now tainted with so many daily droppings of the crows. They come back to the trees every evening and gawk noisily like sharing their shopping loots. They have to drop all their @#$%# feces onto the cars, people and street below. Adoi!







I drove past a residential area in Kepong and saw this huge Megavoltage Monsters standing like Godzillas around the houses below. It reminded me of the days when I had to fetch the Hospice's cancer patients from their homes to hospitals for treatments. One deceased patient pointed out to me that in the whole street of his neighbours, you would find someone suffering from cancer. He blamed the high tension wires!



I had lunch in Happy Gardens yesterday and walked past this road sign. It was all badly plastered with telephone numbers! Goodness! How could we tolerate such nonsense of the loan sharks who would not bother about the road users? I wish the authorities could do something as the loan sharks in both neighbouring countries do not plaster their road signs like this. Either raise up the road signs to 6 feet or call their numbers before handcuff them all.


Food For Thoughts - 
We Could Have Easily Controlled All The Above Situations.

    3. Singapore must be hotter than KL because your island is near the equator line. Time to wear light or nothing while sipping iced lemonade all day.

      I thought Singapore is perfectly clean and no posters or loan shark stickers. Tell me where?

    1. I like your first paragraph.. I re-read for a couple of times.. Maybe three times.. And now, fourth..
      You know all things happen for a reason.. But sometimes the reason is not acceptable, or should I say, that thing shouldn't have even happened in the first place.. That thing shouldn't even exist in life in the first place, then the world will be a better place.. Oops, what am I talking about? Well you don't have to know, but for me to know, and for you to find out, kakakaka..

      Delete
    2. People say, first time it happened, it was a mistake.. We learn from mistakes, yes? But if it happens the second time, the second time is not a mistake, it's a choice.. So yes, we have to make a choice - all the time.. I make choices everyday.. But whether right or wrong, most of the time, I will only know it after it happened.. *shrug*

    3. Sorry for my granny stories, but I agree with controlling the situation rather than letting the situation controlling us.. But ya know, sometimes it's not that easy.. easier said than done.. Else, people won't have depression, haha.. And... I have depression.. Yep, mild one.. It comes and goes..

    4. Maybe our heart or will not strong enuff, that's why we fall into "traps" everyday..

    5. This post is not deep but rather confusing to many. I am glad you could understand after few readings. I was just trying to point out that many wrong doings above are all human's own doing and ignorance.

      The humanoids cleared jungles and made the birds homeless until they had to live in the city which added all the droppings.

      The humanoids built high tension wires all over the place due to bad town planning and triggered unnecessary cancers as believed.

      The humanoids have poor budget and financial planning besides gambling which gave lucrative business to money lenders until they had to paste everywhere.

  6. Hi TM! Hope you are having a great day!

    'If we are strong minded, we can control all the situations and not allow the situations to control us', I agree with this, but not easy to do all the time ;)

    The daily droppings of the crows picture seems familiar, I saw something similar here as well, and I notice it become more during hot days.

    And those telephone numbers of the loan sharks, I guess they can really stick the numbers anywhere! On the road sign, trees, lamp post and all! I hope people will not be easily fooled with those advertisements.

    1. Most humans are sadly weak minded and it takes time for one to build their strong mind & willpower. I can say that most smokers and gamblers have weak mind control and poor willpower to kick their habits. Many of my friends are still heavy smokers, drinkers and gamblers until today. No sign of giving up.

      Our authorities are not interested to clear the mess of the stickers.

  7. I know the Kepong high tension area!!! Few years back they did make lots of complain about not to build any high tension around that area, but still get the same result at the end!! =[

    I hate those load advertisement the most, it's not helping at all... Don't count about those people who's involve...by doing this they're messing up the environment!! =[

    1. Oh you know this area too! The whole place is so scary and I would get dizzy if I waited beneath the high tension wires for too long. I was concerned for the residents. Do they have a better choice?

      Our NGOs and environmental lovers have been screaming for years but nothing changed.

  9. yes, many times we have been rushing with time that we have forgotten to slow down and take a look at our surroundings.. things could just be there beside us, and yet we did not realize how beautiful and inspiring they are!! this is a beautiful post from Anay, from these very common things he observed (that many would have not even noticed), he is telling inspiring stories of his own experience..

    1. Hello Semut Karamel as i prefer to label you..... most of us are not mindful when we walk. That's why accidents happened. There are pretty and ugly sights everywhere for us to ponder and wonder. My eyes are always looking and admiring the unseen.

  10. the first photo.. at first i was looking from top to bottom, from left to right and then from right to left, from close to far and then from far back to close again.. it somehow looks like a very artistic painting huh, of the stellar of stars perhaps?? muahahahahaha.. but that would really be a very "dangerous" place to even pass by lah, the chances of getting hit by the bird shit on your head can be 99.999% dei~~

    p/s: Anay and Letchumi, please don't chase each other under that tree dancing to Bollywood music okay?? you are warned!!!

    1. It sure looked like a Birdie Abstract painting using their own thick droppings that make good quality paint. Maybe I should put a canvas on the floor for 2 days and then sell it as a painting at Central Market. Good idea???

      Heh heh....we will chase each other at the safer coconut trees. More Indian la.

  11. the second photo.. ah, i wonder where in Kepong is this place?? must get 小影 the native Kepong-lang to help us answer this question.. and yes, those are really scary Megavoltage Godzilla Monsters, best to avoid staying nearby.. i often see a couple of these tower in some places, but let me do the count, 1234567, there are 7 of them here!! fuyoh, that is scary..

    p/s: Anay and Letchumi, when you were chasing each other dancing to Bollywood music, please don't mistaken all these towers as trees and try to hide behind okay?? you are warned!!!

    1. Now you got me interested to snap photos of these monsters in various places of KL... I think the worst one is right opposite the last LRT station @ Kelana Jaya.

  12. the third photo.. ah!! Happy Garden and areas around, i think those places have the most "monetary financial supplier" bills and "happy heaven massage service" conteng on the walls in the country!! so who knows which road is that roadsign pointing to?? Anay must have lost himself while driving there, and was so frustrated with all these bills huh?? there was once i was free, and i was reading all these bills posted on the gate of an empty shop.. ah, amazing how they advertise!! pinjam 1000 dapat 1200!! tukar cek bayar bulanan!! and if you work out the maths, you can calculate the interest rate also (that's being conservative that you pay them on time)..

    p/s: Anay and Letchumi, i hope they will not post their bills and conteng the trees that you hide while chasing each other dancing to Bollywood music, else you will have nothing to do during weekends!! muahahahaha~~

    1. "....pinjam 1000 dapat 1200!! tukar cek bayar bulanan!!...." You made me laff like cock Thambee. Mana ada this Maths? They probably lured people to call up.
      I was like you sometimes. I would read everything for my own curious brains. In the end I took pity on the victims and families who were hounded by the sharks. I thought back of my "God Mother" who was a Shark Queen and had me sever ties with her.

    2. that's what i saw lah.. but i know the standard one is "pinjam 1000 dapat 900 bayar balik 1300" and i'm not too sure that "pinjam 1000 dapat 1200", probably that extra 200 is mandatory basic lending amount, die die you must take and then pay back for it!! ask your godmother..

  15. What a deep post. However, humans created the entire mess. If there are lesser urbanisation , life could be much simpler and birds will have their own homes instead of dropping shit. And, there will be less demand for ah long too. Not sure about the power grids that cause cancer but all the air, food and water we drank are certainly not pure, unless we go to some mountains to live. That's life!

    3. We have the same problem as in your first pic here, Twilight Man. Scared to walk around in town at night, millions of those birds flying around...and one may get some of those deposits on one's head. Best to bring along an umbrella.

      Ours here are swallows, yours? Not crows, I'm sure. Must be the same birds - I saw them once when I was in Dengkil. When there is a bird flu outbreak, it can be very worrying.

    4. Aiyor...terrible! Stick until one cannot see the name of the road. We also have those loan sharks here - they stick their signs on the trees along the road. I guess we do not have so many here...but still, we do have enough to be noticeable.

      Delete
    5. I know on e place here with all those high tension wires but it's quite far, outside of town...on the way to the airport. Still, there are houses close by - not sure if they pose any health hazards or not...but sure, these can be quite worrying, really.

      Delete
    6. Back to my original comment, I do think your photos are nice - they certainly have that abstract art kind of attraction. Perhaps you can ask everyone to suggest names/titles for each one...and choose the best ones...and give prizes? Wink! Wink!

    8. "Everything we see in life is mere illusions." How very true of SK's comment on my initial response to the post?

      7.10 a.m. Had to meet a friend for breakfast at 8.00 a.m. (Yes, we get up very early here and it gets bright very early here too!) so that was why I just made a brief one...and now, 3 something...after my lunch and my power nap, here I am back again to talk long and wide (cakap panjang lebar).

    9. You really gave me a heart attack with so many spam comments! Just because this "jodoh" jibed and you sprang into action! Thank you for all your comments and well thought opinions. I like!

      The bids that messed our streets are really black crows. Every now and then, the DBKL squad would fire them all. Eeewww i saw so many died and struggling on the roads with blood everywhere. So gory and cruel. They should make crow pies!

      Sibu definitely does not have the loan shark issues like KL where many road signs are badly plastered! I guess the folks like Sibu are richer and wiser in spending.

      High tension wires are definitely more in bigger cities where the population and factories are everywhere. I should snap all the various high tension wires and post them to let bloggers guess the locations to win!! Good idea??
