of Inner Workings

Hello, 2017. So here we are. Finally. Looking back, I just realize I have neglected this blog. Wow. No big surprise here if "Work" (yes, with the capital 'w') is being the reason. Or is it merely an excuse? I don't know. I guess I still am figuring out how my inner workings, uhm, work. Yes, 'inner workings'. Just like the cute, brief animation that was shown in the theater before the movie, Moana.

Check out the 1-minute trailer:


The summary as stated by Disney Wiki of "Inner Workings":
“This is the story of the internal struggle between a man’s Brain—a pragmatic protector who calculates his every move, and his Heart—a free-spirited adventurer who wants to let loose.”

I wonder if a similar 'turmoil' might have been encountered by Felicia Yap (yes, she's featured in the Newsweek, "FELICIA YAP'S DEBUT NOVEL "YESTERDAY" IS ALREADY A 2017 LITERARY EVENT"). She's been a biochemist, a lecturer at Cambridge University, a radioactive-cell biologist and a technology journalist--and now a novelist. Her debut novel, "Yesterday" somewhat brings the movie, "Memento" to my mind.

Anyway. Back to the topic, please.

Ah. Yes. Inner workings. Reckon following one's heart is really what truly makes things work well.

Easier said. To think one can be enlightened by a cute, brief animation is really ridiculous...or perhaps, it's not? Heh.

I guess I'd have to find out myself.

By the way, The Huffington Post article, "10 Reasons to Follow Your Heart" does make a compelling case.

A hoax? Alleged notification from MFA on impending bomb attacks in Riau Islands.

Referring to Asiaone, "Flyers surface in Batam warning of bomb attacks targeting Singaporeans", I just wonder if it may just be a hoax.

I too received the whatsapp message about it:

Notification from MFA:
Batam Today reported on 5 Jul that flyers were found which mentioned that there would be bomb attacks in a number of places in the Riau Islands, including the port of Batam Centre, Nagoya, Bunyan Telani and Tanjung Pinang. The flyers also said that tourists from Malaysia and Singapore would be targeted and that the militants had arrived in Riau "two weeks ago". Tanjung Pinang District Policy Chief confirmed the existence of the flyer and said it was under investigation.

But when I clicked the link above, it mentions that "The page that you are looking for cannot be found. Please check the URL to ensure that the path is correct."

I also attempted to check the Batam Today, but the website failed to load.

Trying to use Google News, but also unable to find such an article from Batam Today.

So is this really a hoax? Well, I believe so.
