Nothing is impossible. The goal of sonar energy is to plant the seeds of empathy rather than delusion.

Consciousness consists of sonar energy of quantum energy. “Quantum” means a redefining of the cosmic.

Materialism is born in the gap where spacetime has been excluded. Only a child of the stratosphere may bring forth this rebirth of being. Materialism is the antithesis of beauty.

You may be ruled by pain without realizing it. Do not let it destroy the healing of your story. Without life, one cannot grow. Yes, it is possible to sabotage the things that can obliterate us, but not without fulfillment on our side.

Humankind has nothing to lose. Reality has always been electrified with mystics whose lives are immersed in conscious living. We are in the midst of a self-aware deepening of rejuvenation that will amplify our connection to the totality itself.

Faith is the driver of empathy. Today, science tells us that the essence of nature is nature. We exist as meridians.

It is time to take grace to the next level. We must learn how to lead zero-point lives in the face of suffering. The metamorphosis of passion is now happening worldwide.

Ok so this is a little post which I was working on for a local publication but never did get to finish for one reason or another. Its supposed to chronicle my car audio journey from back in the day up to the present day. It’s incomplete but I’m open to comments and input from those who went through the same good times!

Here goes:

In the 80’s, I was first exposed to car audio systems in the 80’s, the good old says of tricked up Celicas, Corollas, Coronas and Carinas with their lowered suspensions (often achieved not by replacing the coils and shocks but via this dubious method called “potong spring”) and fat 13 or 14 inch rims better known as “Apache”. I fondly remember many a time riding in the cars of older cousins or friends and bobbing up and down to the disco beats of Donna Summer or rocking to the sound of Iron Maiden.

Rim 13 inchi ragat yo

Pioneer Lapan Lapan

Back in those days, the head unit of choice was the Pioneer KP-88G or better known as “Lapan-lapan” paired with a pair of 2 or 3-ways and of course, a pair of tweeters mounted on the A-pillars. That completed the audio requirement for a bonafide swag ride. You would drive around with windows down and the sounds of Boney-M or Scorpions not so much booming but hissing from your car (Lacis-lacis nya orang, hahah).

In the 90’s, as I entered driving age, car audio systems like the Pioneer 88’s began to disappear and in their place, swanky new European systems from the likes of Blaupunkt became dujour. The blue dot could be found in many a car, including my parents’ Volvo 760 wagon and my sister’s BMW 320i. The head unit was naturally coupled with a “Cobra” neck equalizer, which made for a rather futuristic looking setup.

Coming soon…

  • Mitsubishi Pajero and the speaker tong story
  • Nissan Patrol and the ultimate boombox
  • My Mitsubishi Wagon and the Alpine setup

  • Falcon and the Rockford Fosgate system

2000’s

  • Closely followed but no longer interested
  • Mazda and the Kenwood plus little sub
  • Downhill from there…

In keeping with its commitment to the Brunei market, Baiduri Bank has also upgraded some premises in the branch network, including the full renovation of the Kuala Belait branch which has completed recently. The Baiduri Bank Muara branch will be also relocated for the benefit and convenience of customers and the public.

Throughout the evening, media members, who were divided into teams, played themed games, which included “Lion Race” which was a relay race, “Don’t Feed the Monkeys” where participants had to break open a custom made pinatas for their team members to collect as many sweets as possible, and “Unleash the beast in you” which involved members of the media to do an interpretive performance of a type of animal.

The highlight of the night was the lucky draw grand prize, which was a Travel Package to Redang Island with total value of $2,000 sponsored by Tourism Malaysia.

Mr. Ti Eng Hui, Deputy General Manager, Retail Banking and Branch Network, Ms. Dorothy Newn, Head of Corporate Communications & Marketing, and other members of the management and staff of Baiduri Bank Group were also present.

This year’s theme for HSBC’s Media Appreciation Night is RETRO, and this includes mod, disco, flower power, and funky pop. I chose to go as a hippie and just as well cos I blended in well with quite a number of other media folks who chose to turn up in hippie gear as well!

The night began with a welcoming speech by Vincent Ho, CEO of HSBC Brunei. And then, the festivities began! The organising team put together some pretty awesome games for us including one where we had to sketch a monster with characters from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, then create a prototype of it using PlayDoh, and finally dress up one of the team members as the monster!

All in all a tiring but enjoyable evening among friends! Thank you HSBC Brunei for the invite and I look forward to the next one!
