My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.

So long and good night

Yesterday was quite an eventful day. In the world, that is. Not mine. I just minum kopi.

First shock of the day came from the courts of Flushing Meadows, New York where a tennis great bid farewell to the game he loved. Andre Agassi, in all his glory was reduced to a tearful, bald-headed old man. And to think that this guy used to run around the courts in his Spandex. Thank you Andre for being such a great player. Being only one of 5 men who has won all four Grand Slam titles, certainly he deserves his place among tennis greats.
ESPN has a great tribute here.

Later in the day, I was shocked to read about the news of Steve 'Crocodile Hunter' Irwin's death on a sea expedition. Pierced through the heart from a stingray, perhaps he wouldn't have wanted a better way to go than being with nature himself. For all his "Crikey!" and strong Aussie accent, it was truly a joy to see him on the telly. Such an enthusiastic man, he was passionate about his work, as other famous wildlife personalities. He certainly ranks along with Jane Goodall, Diane Fossey and Brady Barr in terms of recognizable faces of nature enthusiasts.
Read the Times obituary for the Crocodile Hunter himself.

In saying goodbye to our former KSN, we welcomed Tan Sri Mohd. Sidek Hassan as the new leader of the civil service. Welcome Tan Sri. It would be an honour to work under your guidance. Perhaps, we will meet someday. On the 19th, maybe?

Before I forget, congratulations to Faiz for being the second man in the list. Truly a great accomplishment, I knew you'd make it. And while I'm slugging it out in the office, you're hanging out with Russian babes waiting for the next flight to space. I envy you, bro. Maybe you can do that ping pong trick you taught me in space, eh?

And to you, congratulations on your special day. You truly deserve the happiness that you have. I was honoured to be there.
