Solve the problem, not create another one

I know of one clinic that supply methadone to drug addicts. What is methadone? Methadone is synthetic narcotic drug similar to morphine but less habit-forming. Methadone is used in narcotic detoxification and maintenance of heroin addiction. Now, I am not an expert in drugs and its benefits but I wonder why should a drug addict be allowed to get their medical supplies i.e. methadone if the main objective is to help them be clean. Instead of allowing the drug addicts obtain methadone legally which is what the government is doing, the government should focus more on helping them break the addictions. Now, some of them are addicted to methadone instead. Instead of solving the problem, it seems that a new problem is created without really solving the old problem. I do hope the policy makers will have a more holistic approach to solving any problems.

Kuganized - a new English word

Kuganized or Kuganised (depending on which type of English you favors) is a new word in English originated from Malaysia after the famous incident involving the death of one Indian named Kugan while in police custody.

U look haggard

Mr R came to my shop and immediately told me. "Hey David, what happened to you? You look haggard". Told him that I've always looked haggard. He deny that saying that in the previous meetings I looked fresh. Hmmm....

After thinking of what he said, I realised that this could only the sign that my body is getting weaker. Well, its time to boost up my immune system and get enough rest. Need to sleep early tonite.
Do I look haggard like this man? Hope not.

I hate goodbyes. Saying goodbyes to my two sisters ... sadness filled my heart. When will I see them again? But goodbyes must be said. Goodbyes is the ending and also the beginning. The ending of being together and the beginning of separate lives. So goodbye is then a must. Life must go on. But though the goodbyes are said, the love remains in the heart.

May God be with you all always...and may we see you all again soon. So for now...goodbye.
