Lately, I’ve been getting some Internal Server Errors (500) on my WordPress sites whenever I tend to use things like Visual Composer, Live Composer and so on. Checking the Cpanel error logs doesn’t seem to help so I tend to tail the Apache error logs. This is what I will encounter: Continue reading

5 Unique Ideas for Malaysian Indian Weddings

While the Malays are so advanced in terms of wedding creativity, we Malaysian Indians are still hooked up to the same ‘ol ‘must have sami padom’, ‘must have relatives’ names’ and many other rules for a wedding card for example. This of course, limits our potential to be creative and imaginative as we are stuffed by “others” to just adhere to the norms of a Malaysian Indian wedding.

But.. but.. I wanted my wedding to be unique from the rest. You know, I’m tired of the ancient look of our typical wedding cards and same old mappilai and ponnu entry.

One Single Wedding Event? Mudiyathu!

“Pakkethu vittu Amsavalli magalleku reception vechange, appo unnekom vekinom!”

“Sonthokarengge kepangge yen reception/dinner vekille’nu”

“Athe vecha than nambelekku perumme”

“Terille, reason ille, aana veche aagenum!”

For Malaysian Indians, it has been a norm for married couples to have a separate wedding reception (usually at night) in a bigger and grand scale. It can be a reception held only by the bride or bridegroom or even a combined one. I have to admit that there are many valid reasons for the couples to have one such as the distant location of both families, expectation of massive crowd, wee hours wedding ceremony and so on.

Kabali (2016) Tamil Film Review by A Malaysian

For me, the movie Kabali is really nice. Probably those who don't seem to like it couldn't comprehend the harsh reality and bitter truth depicted in that movie albeit everything went in a fast-paced mode.

One need to try to fathom the message delivered instead of grumbling on how the movie is NOT the usual Rajini-type movie (please, could someone explain in detail on what kind of story they were expecting?). The way the film crews researched everything about the Malaysian Indian gangsters as well as the poverty-stricken estate people are highly commendable. Even the gang numbers (Gang 00 and Gang 43) were carefully derived not to imitate the current gangs in Malaysia.

Apart from that, we were informed that the ending scene of Kabali in Malaysia is different compared to those in India (or perhaps even rest of the world). In Malaysia, the movie will end like this:


For those of you who are yet to watch this movie, please at least watch this movie once.
